I’ve been meaning to do this blog award post for awhile now but kept putting it off, as I’ve been busy with getting back into the swing of college and that. I have some posts scheduled and ready to go up but I thought it’s about time I do this!
Other blog award posts
Thank you to the lovely Jenna Lousie Barrett of Parchment and Quill Chronicles and Alanna Lexie for the nominations. I really appreciate it, I always get so chuffed when I’m nominated for blog awards lol. You can find Jenna’s post here and Alanna Lexie’s here.
Since I’ve been nominated twice, I shall be answering both of their questions in one post. So anyway, let’s get to the questions first before I nominate.
Favourite genre to read?
I love romance books and anything to do with love. I also love books with a great plot twist in it.
Favourite genre to write?
I’m not really much of a writer, but I definitely would love to write romance books.
Poolside or exploring holiday?
Definitely a poolside holiday. I’m more of a relaxed kind of chick.
What is your ultimate aim/hope for your blog? No matter how ridiculous it might seem.
To be honest, I just hope that I get better at blogging and make sure at the end of the day that I enjoy doing it before anything. Other than that, I would just love to have my own little community here.
Who is your favourite fictional character? Why?
My favourite fictional character would have to be Maggie from the book Inkheart. It’s one of my favourite childhood books, and still my favourite to this day tbh.
Oddest job you have either done or heard of?
I can’t really answer this because I don’t think any kind of job can be odd. At the end of the day, it’s still what someone wants to do to get their coin so why judge.
Is there one country that you really want to visit above all others? Why that one?
Brazil. It looks beautiful.
If you could only ever recommend one book or author ever again what/who would it be?
Any Marian Keyes book if you like that girlish stuff.
If you had no restrictions (financial/anxiety/literally any restriction) what is the one activity that you would do?
Wear crazier makeup lol.
What is one song that always makes you happy? (If it’s on YouTube add a link so we can all have a listen).
Share with the class one phrase/poem/lyric/quote that always gives you hope.
Low expectations, no disappointment.

What is your favourite post you’ve written?

Best tip for driving blog traffic?
Use Pinterest (follow mine). Engage with other bloggers and show support on their work and you’ll hopefully get some back! And just enjoy it.

I don’t have someone that inspires me, mostly just things that I want to have and I know I’ve to work to get there.
What is your biggest goal for 2018?
Get a car!
