The sunshine award

Hello,

Happy Sunday. I am on a roll with my posts this week aren’t I, I believe I have posted everyday! I guess we can thank the snow for that.

Today’s post is a post I didn’t want to wait too long to post because I am so thankful to these two beautiful bloggers for nominating me for this award. The three beautiful bloggers I am talking about is Lauren , Rachel and Em. If you haven’t checked these amazing bloggers out, I totally recommend them.

I am going to jump straight into this because I am excited to answer the questions. So, let’s start with Lauren’s questions.

Lauren’s sunshine award questions

1. Where do you find your inspiration for your posts?

My mind is a very messy place, so I use that quite often but I also use what’s around me. I like to take my surroundings and use them to create something fun, but I wont lie, Pinterest is a huge help!

2. What movie can you watch over and over again?

I don’t watch movies so I’m going to have to say none. What would you recommend I watch though?

3. Who is one celebrity, dead or alive you’d like to meet? And why?

Khloe Kardashian for sure! She is my idol, my inspiration and I am totally obsessed with her, she has come so far and I want to have the same impact that she does.

4. How did you meet your best friend?

I was at my cousins laying on his sofa eating a whole packet of cookies and he called his friend up to help him fix his bike. I instantly had a crush on him haha, I tried to be smart and help with fixing the bike but I was clueless. Ever since that day, I have had a pretty solid friendship with him, even when I am being a bit of a bitch,

5. When did you start blogging?

Officially 5 years ago but this blog has only been running since December 2017.

6. Why did you decide to start blogging?

For so long I said that I started blogging to forget about my sexual assault but it’s time to change the broken record. I blog because I am creative, I love to write so why not create a space where I can do exactly that.

7. Do you follow/believe in horoscopes?

I follow mine but I wouldn’t say I believe in it if that makes sense. I don’t feel like I fit my star sign so I don’t believe the events will happen to me, like last week I was meant to meet the love of my life, I was housebound so that didn’t happen. This week I am meant to be soaking in the sun, I am currently hiding under my duvet because it’s snowing. It’s fun to read though!

8. What is your star sign?

Aquarius although I think I should have been a Gemini or a Pisces.

9. What is your favourite flower?

I love Orchids I think they are so pretty but I am also a sucker for a rose bush.

10. What’s your biggest achievement so far, in terms of your blog or just in general?

In terms of my blog my biggest achievement is collaborating with brands when my blog is only a few months old! In terms of my personal life, I think my greatest achievement is letting go of all my anger and hate and moving past my assault and finally doing things a normal teenager would do,

11. What’s your favourite post that you have written? Link it

My favourite post is my Why I am a Slut post. It’s very raw, very deep and personal but that is exactly who I am and I feel like I did the right thing putting myself out there, right in the judgement line. You can read the post here if you’re interested.
