Inspirational Blogger Award

Today I'm very excited to share a post that the wonderful Aleeha and Lucy from came up with. They were kind enough to nominate me to answer the questions for myself, and I'm very thankful that they did. I hope you enjoy reading!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in your posts and make sure to link their blog!
  2. Insert the blog award badge
  3. Copy and paste/write in your own words these rules
  4. Complete the blogger award scrapbook style questions (making sure to include photos where possible!)
  5. Nominate 10 other bloggers who inspire you 

The Questions: 

1. Share a quote to inspire other bloggers

"Raise those hands this is our party. We came here to live life like nobody was watching"

This might be a really cringe and not the usual type of inspirational quote, but it's actually a Macklemore song lyric. I just clicked with that line the moment I first heard it, because I always struggle with worrying what people think about me and it stops me from having a good time. It just reminds me to have fun and that my life is mine only to live, so I shouldn't worry what people think.

2. Share a photo of one of your favourite places that you have visited. What do you love about this place?

Look how cute this street is!

Temple Bar, Dublin is for sure one of the best places I've ever visited in my life. I adored the atmosphere, the people and of course, the accents!

3. Share a link to one of your favourite blogs. What qualities do you love about this blogger?

Obviously I have so so so many blogger friends and it's so insanely hard to pick just one. I love all the babes over at Beau Bloggers, and if you want to check out quality content please head over there.

But since my very first days of blogging I discovered Layla's blog called I know for a fact that she's so dedicated to her blog, making sure each one is written and presented to perfection. The hard work she puts into her blog just inspires me to put more effort into mine. 

4. Share a photo of a favourite book/film. Why does this one make it into your top 5?

I think it goes without saying that Harry Potter is my ultimate fave, so that you get to learn something new about me I'll share one of my other favourite films. Son Of Rambow is one of the cutest films going, and it's about two kids in the 80's who enter a film making competition. Everything about it just makes me want to watch it over and over again.

5. Do you have any other hobbies or passions outside of blogging?

I'm obessed with social media in every shape and form. When I'm not planning and writing blog posts, I'm doing the same for youtube videos. 

6. List 5 places on your travel bucket list?

  • New York
  • Iceland
  • Egypt
  • Dubai
  • Ireland (I know I've been to Dublin but I want to see more of it!)
7. Share a link to one of your favourite posts on your blog. Why is it your favourite?

My post "Let's Talk About Mental Health" is one of my favourites because it's the one I'm the most proud of. I received a lot of positive feedback saying that people appreciated me talking about the subject, and it lead me to start to talk about the topic of mental health on my youtube channel.

8. Share a photo of one item that you love. It could be a lipstick, perfume, diary... absolutely anything!

Look at the gorgeous shade that is Glastonberry!

I think it goes without saying that Charlotte Tilbury's lipsticks have been the love of my life lately. So yeaaaaaaaah that's something I love!

9. Share a link to an item which is currently on your wishlist. What do you love so much about this item/why do you want it?

An item that is currently on my wishlist is over the knee boots. Unfortunately I can't actually link this item because I don't know which ones I want in specific. The only ones I've seen so far have not quite been the right style or been too pricey... and we all know I love a good bargain.

10. How long have you been blogging for? Do you want to continue blogging forever?

I have been blogging since the 28th of January 2014 and I can't honestly see a time where I'll stop doing it. Posting honestly makes me beyond happy and I hope it never has to come to an end. 

Now it's time to nominate 10 blogs, and please don't feel like you're forced to write this post if you are nominated. I just thought it would be nice to share your blogs:
Thank you very much for reading and I hope you got to know me a little better. The song of the day is Yeah by Usher because let's face it, it's an anthem. I hope you're all having a lovely week,
