The Blog Tour Award

I was very kindly nominated by Rainbow-Rose Blossom to do the Blog Tour Award. She is such a beautiful and strong person and you can check out her post here. All of her posts are so inspirational and I truly enjoy reading her blog. Now onto the actual post...


The award rules:

  1. Pass the tour on to at least four other bloggers
  2. Give your nominees the rules and specify the Monday in which they should post their nomination answers
  3. Answer the four questions about your creative process, which allows other bloggers and visitors to understand what inspires you to do what you do. 
  4. Compose this one-time post on a specific Monday (date TBC by your nominator)

My answers:


1. How Does Your Work Differ From Others In Your Genre?

First of all I'd like to ask what even is my genre? To be honest I don't even know what it is, but to summarize it across my two blogs I'd describe it as lifestyle/personal/beauty. The only way that I think I differ to other people is that I'm myself on my blog. After all, if I'm trying to be myself instead of a carbon copy of another blogger, I'm bound to be different because no two people are the same. I also tend to write what I'm feeling and life updates, which again will be different from anyone else's because no two people have the exact same life experiences.

2. How Does Your Writing/Creative Process Work?

I start off with an idea. I get my inspiration either by reading other people's posts, seeing something in other media that interests me, being nominated in a tag, or something I am experiencing in my life. Whenever I have a post idea I make sure to save it as a draft so I don't forget it. Then, when the time is right, I start to write up my draft and just keep editing, proof reading, and editing some more. I then post it when I'm completely happy with it.

3. Why Do You Write And Create What You Do?

Well I first started blogging because I wasn't confident enough to post regularly on my YouTube channel. I think I've kind of become obsessed with blogging now because its something that's really my thing. I've never had a hobby that I've felt this passionate about before, or ever felt like I had my own "thing". Like, I'm not good at art, I can't sing one note in tune and can't play football ect... But now that I've finally found something I actually feel like I can do, I really wouldn't mind being known as a person who loves to write a blog and make YouTube videos. I carry on creating what I do because I've really surprised myself by doing it in the first place and it is probably the thing that brings me the most joy. 

4. What Are You Working On At The Moment?

EVERYTHING! In my spare time I'm basically always working on my blog or my YouTube channel. Whether that means actually writing and posting something, or doing behind the scenes work like drafting, editing, and replying to comments. At the moment I'm working on a couple of products reviews for Izzy K: Reviews & More. Also, I'm still working on my "let's talk about mental health" series because it is something I feel strongly about and I didn't want my first post about the topic to be a one off. 

My Nominees:


I also nominate anyone else that would like to take part. I hope that you guys have time and would like to do this award. The Monday which the award should be posted is 6th July (or the 13th if you'd like a bit more time) . 

The song of the day is Shut Up And Dance by Walk The Moon, because its legit been stuck in my head for about 50 years. Thanks for reading, and thank you so much Rainbow for nominating me. xxx
