Sunshine Blogger Award



Hi everyone, hope you’re having a lovely Monday!

I got nominated for the Sunshine Award by Paige!

This award goes to bloggers who are positive, inspiring and bring a little bit of sunshine into people’s lives.  I’m really touched that Paige thought to nominate me, so thank you very much!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you by linking their blog.
  2. Answer the questions.
  3. Nominate 11 blogs with 11 questions.
  4. List the rules as well as displaying the Sunshine Award logo on your post


  1. What advice would you give to somebody who has recently started a blog?

Don’t get disheartened if your posts don’t always get lots of comments or views.  Take the time to get to know other bloggers – making new friends is one of the perks of blogging!


  1. What is your favourite blog post you have written?

I enjoyed writing my Everyday Makeup Routine as it was the first proper post I did after getting back to blogging.


  1. Favourite book?

My favourite book is Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, it’s the only book that’s ever made me cry!


  1. What is your earliest memory?

My first memory is waking up and seeing my little sister standing in her cot holding on to the bars – so cute!


  1. How do you wind down at the end of a busy day?

Nothing beats a hot bubble bath with a cup of tea and a book.


  1. Can you cook? (If so, what is your favourite meal to make?)

I can cook but admittedly very rarely cook at the moment.  I used to love making shepherd’s pie when I was at uni, it was homely food that cheered me up.


  1. Do you have any weird obsessions?

Back in the day, I was absolutely obsessed with One Direction.  I still like them all now, but a normal amount!


  1. Are you proud of your blog?

Yes, I’ve just gone self-hosted so I’ve been working really really hard on it and am happy with how it’s looking.


  1. How do you stay organised?

I’m very big on lists, if anything needs to be done then it will be on a list!  If I have everything I need to do on a list I get far more motivated to get it done and I love the satisfaction of ticking things off once I’ve completed them.


  1. Favourite type of chocolate?

My favourite is Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut, nothing beats it!


  1. Dogs or cats?

I’m definitely a dog girl, I have a bad habit of pointing out every dog we pass to whoever I’m with!


My questions for you:

  1. What was the last picture you took on your phone?
  2. What made you start a blog?
  3. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
  4. Which three famous people would you invite to a dinner party and why?
  5. Which two makeup products could you not live without?
  6. What’s your favourite film?
  7. Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the world?
  8. What is your dream job?
  9. Have you been/are you at University?
  10. If you were an animal what would you be?
  11. What’s the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome?

I nominate:













I hope you enjoyed reading this and finding out a bit more about me!  Thank you again to Paige for nominating me and please tag me in your posts – I’d love to read yours!
