Hey everyone. So, my blog was nominated by Anna and The Cheesecake Addiction blog for a Liebster Award which is lovely. Thanks very much Anna! 

It’s an award for blogs with small readership (less than 200 blog followers), and it helps bloggers to promote other blogs. It gives everyone (writers and followers alike) a chance to get to know each other.

Here are the rules:

  1. If you’re nominated, you must provide a link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. Give 11 facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the 11 questions created by the user who nominated you
  4. Nominate 11 people & ask 11 questions for them to answer!


Eleven Facts About Me:

1.) I am a student at Cardiff University, studying Public Relations and Global Communications Management. 

2.) I absolutely love dogs, I have a little Jack Russel called Paddy and a Staffordshire bull terrier called Buster

3.) My favorite book is ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ by Khalid Hosseini. He is the same author who wrote ‘The Kite Runner’ (in case you weren’t aware)

4.) My favorite film is The Green Mile

5.) Hiking is my favorite outdoor activity. Last year I went hiking in Italy and have even been to Everest Base camp in Nepal

6.) My favorite city is Berlin

7.) I would love to see the Grand Canyon

8.) I can play the violin 

9.) My favorite meal is Ham, Egg and Chips (with a dash of Worcester sauce)

10.) I enjoy making my own clothes with a sewing machine

11.) I can speak German 

Questions for me to answer from Anna: 

1. You’re stranded on a desert island, what three things do you bring?

I would say my laptop (who knows, perhaps I might be able to get Wifi somehow), some chocolate to keep me happy for a little while at least and Stretch N Seal to keep my food fresh. I would prepare fresh meals from the fruit and vegetables that hopefully grow on the Island!

2. What was your most popular blog post to date? Please link.


3. What are your blogging aspirations?

My blogging inspirations are general things that occur day to day throughout my life. I get inspiration from very normal, everyday things such as sitting on a bus or tasting a particular flavour of food. 

4. What was the best vacation you ever took?

Definitely my trip to Everest Base Camp in Nepal. It is such a beautiful country full of kind, wonderful people. The city of Kathmandu is enchanting and bustling and the mountains are sublime. 

5. If you can share, what is the most daring thing you’ve done?

Probably going to live in Germany for a year alone. I found this rather daunting but I loved it! 

6. What book changed your life?

‘Feel the Fear and do it anyway’ by Susan Jeffers. It teaches you how to deal with life’s anxieties 

7. Are you a cat person or a dog person?

Most certainly a dog person, although I love all animals! 

8. Best advice someone has ever given you?

To be true to who you are

9. Best BLOGGING advice someone has ever given you?

The above would also apply here. Just be genuine in creating a platform for people to connect with you 

10. What are your hobbies?

Swimming, reading and hiking 

11. Pick one word to sum up your taste in music.
