Sunshine Blog Award

buddhism, health, holiday diary, my inspiration, Style

The fact my blog/ content has made some sort of impact is an incredible feeling. Thank you ~Curiosity~ We have only just come across each other’s blog’s in a short amount of time, and for you to have nominated me, despite the amount of blogs you read on the daily is so kind! A real confidence boost! For sure, this blogger does share quality content, I always find their posts relatable, from light to real life stories and some colourful and calming quotes, its totally my kind of zen zone, where I often go over too and you should get following also!

Sunshine Blog Award:

An award given by a blogger to a fellow blogger that is considered to share positive and creative content. Most importantly, it helps bring bloggers together and shine a light on the ones who work so hard to give their readers/ audience what they like to see. So, again Thank you ~Curiosity~

So here are the Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the sunshine blogger award logo in your post/or on your blog.

Here are my 11 questions asked of me by ~Curiosity~ :

  1. What do you like most about you?

I have to be honest, I could go on about my appearance because I think its always important to love the way you were born but what I’ve noticed over the years is inner beauty. Happiness is beautiful and I love how happy and content I am in myself, my friend told me the other day “I am a pretty self assured person” and really, I think that’s a great compliment.

2. What is the one country/state/city you want to visit this year?

Well the one place I do want to go is Thailand and I get to go this summer in fact with my partner. I still can’t grasp that I am ticking this off my bucket list. We all have a bucket list and to be fair it takes a while for us to tick off some of the list but I have to say I am doing pretty well because last year was Rome… check!

3. What is the one book you recommend everyone read?

Well I used to read adventure books, but I changed my love of adventure books to more profound adventures such as buddhism. I am always down for a good humanism book, that focuses on the rational outlooks we should all obtain because life can get crazy man.

4. What is your favorite Disney Movie? and Why?

I am not a huge fan of Disney, if I had to pick, perhaps it would be Snow White in 1938. The grainy animation and colour fascinates me of that time fascinates me, her blocked coloured puffy sleeve dress makes me chuckle? The vulnerable elegant voice is warming and hey, those 7 dudes are funny!

5. What is your favorite Marvel Movie? and Why?

It is now Black Panther, the story was as predictable as any other Marvel but the way in which they gave the actresses a very strong and empowering roles was a breathe of fresh air. I am so sick of seeing lady hero’s in tight skimpy outfits. Wonder Woman was a no go from me. This is a jump from Snow White but I appreciate all types of women. DO NOT SEXUALISE WOMEN WHEN SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A STRONG HEROINE… HER BODY SHOULD NOT BE USED TO SELL FILMS. It’s 2019. I’m cool…

6. What would you do for free?

Money I definitely the source of all evil. It’s great having it if you earned it but sometimes money is not the source of all happiness, I would always help out people less fortunate for free because thats the biggest gift you can give and to yourself. To be a good person is to show compassion for others.

7. What three words would your best friend use to describe you?

‘bitch’ but not in a nasty way as in like ‘biiiiiiitch…’ like slaaayy girl. HAHA! We always say this. ‘funny’ always cracking others up with my words, cruel/ dry (tough love) or light. ‘crazy’ I tend to go on a mad one every once in… well all the time. I have a lot of energy!

8. Where would you rather be right now?

In Thailand! Italy! Greece! Bora Bora…

9. What is your favorite drink?

Alcoholic would be Pina Colada. Then ordinary would be squash or coffee with soya milk!

10. What is your favorite country/state/city that you visited and why?

I have been to so many wonderful places, I truly have been blessed. It be hard to choose from, NYC, Florida, Miami, Barcelona, Rome, Italy skiing, and then the regular Spain holiday’s to Salou. (And so much moooore) I can’t choose I mean look at all those amazing trips I listed. I have to say though the trips have been were made extra special because of the people I experienced them with. Got to love family.

What inspired you to start a blog?

Well, I always wanted one. I saw some girl in uni had one and I wanted one. Just for the fun of it, I thought fashion and beauty would be an easy one – I alway liked fashion anyways but never took as seriously as I do now. Turns out it’s one of the hardest things to blog about, trying to come up with more fun innovative content that keeps my readers interested and finding new products/ brands to try out in order to explore and learn more beyond my horizons in the fashion world. My fashion sense has really matured and fashion is not just the clothes you wear, your making statements beyond the wardrobe. I have since come across amazing experience in fashion journalism and love how this area of the internet REALLY keeps me on my toes.

(So sorry for the long winded answers, I talk too much)
