  • The Sunshine Blogger Award

    Whenever I get a notification saying I’ve been nominated for a blogger award I still get excited and a couple of weeks ago was no exception. The blogging community is so special and the support is amazing. I just want to thank Bea from Forever Bea who nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

    The Sunshine Blogger Award


    1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog.

    2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

    3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

    4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or in your blog.


    What is your current TV series/Movie at the moment and why?

    Oooo. At the moment I’m loving Brooklyn Nine Nine, its just hilarious and my favourite movie would be The Fault In Our Stars as I watched this just a few days ago and oh my word it gave me all the feels.

    Who’s your favourite person in the world?

    My mom. When I was going through treatment she was there for every procedure & chemo session holding my hand, she knew I was so much stronger than I thought I could be. She will forever be my favourite person in the world and I can’t imagine my life without her. AWHHHH. 

    Tea or coffee?

    I love a good cup of tea in the morning, I wouldn’t be able to function without it BUT I love a good coffee. I have my own little coffee machine and whenever I go out I always have some sort of coffee so I’m going to have to say coffee. 

    When do you feel most beautiful?

    Probably when I take care of myself or spend time on myself. For example, after taking the time to wash my face and then applying my skincare or when I do a mask. I also feel beautiful when I dress up and take the time to look nice.

    What are your plans for the future?

    I always hate this kind of question because I never know what to say but I want to be working at a cancer charity and I really hope to have children but overall I just want to be happy.

    Who inspired you with your blog?

    Ooo. I don’t know. When I was going through cancer treatment I was reading blogs from other people who were going through the same sort of treatment and that really inspired me to start writing about my journey.

     If you could only use one platform of social media what would it be and why?

    I would have to say Twitter most definitely. If it wasn’t for Twitter I wouldn’t have found the blogging community who are the most supportive people ever and I love it although if I was asked this question maybe a year and a half ago I would have said Instagram but we all know what happened there..

    What is your favourite quote and what does it mean to you?

    “There are all these moments you think you won’t survive. And then you survive”

    When I was going through my stem cell transplant I stumbled upon this quote on Pinterest and it helped me so much when I was feeling so weak so it means a lot.

    How would you describe your fashion sense?

    I try to keep my fashion sense clean and minimalist but it’s more I’ll just chuck on this jumper with those jeans kinda style lately because it SO cold. I’ll add some things I’m loving lately below..

    What do you do to make yourself feel happy?

    I normally make myself a hot chocolate or some kind of hot drink and get some popcorn then put a movie on. That makes my happy 🙂

    What piece of advice would you give to new bloggers?

    My one one piece of advice would be to don’t compare yourself to other bloggers. In the blogging world it is so easy to dwell on the fact that you may not be as big as other bloggers but you cant compare your chapter 1 to someones chapter 9. Everyone started at the same point and you will get to where you want to be one day.

      Questions about the future are so difficult for me to answer too! But just wanting to be happy is kind of nice and a bit sad at the same time since it can imply someone not being happy right now. Loved reading this though x

      • February 12, 2018 / 6:59 pm

        I just find it super hard to answer and I don’t really know why 😂 I am happy but not in all aspects of my life so I just want to be happy with everything which one day I’m sure I will be. Thank you lovely xo

      I am the opposite of you with tea and coffee – I can’t live without coffee but I love a really good cup of tea.

      Congratulations on the award! I think you gave great piece of advice for new bloggers because a lot of them will lose motivation and stop blogging b/c they aren’t getting as many likes and comments as bloggers who’ve been blogging for years

    4. February 7, 2018 / 2:21 pm

      I love these questions and how you answered them, particularly the what makes you feel beautiful question and advice for other bloggers. Really unique way you’ve answered them and I enjoyed reading xx

    5. February 7, 2018 / 5:53 pm

      I loved doing this award! I really like your questions and the way you answered them! Xx

      Congrats on your award- it was great to learn a bit more about you 🙂

    7. February 8, 2018 / 2:30 am

      A huge congrats with this award. Yes, it’s always so nice to get the notification from a fellow blogger saying: “I have nominated you”. It’s still jolts me and overwhelms me that somebody thought of you and took the time to nominate you.
      Again huge congrats, I love your post and answers.
      Happy blogging
