The Liebster Award


I've never done these sorts of posts before, being nominated and tagged and all that jazz. The lovely April nominated me and I'm so happy I'm finally doing one of these.

I've been nominated for the liebster award before, but I was too nervous to answer the questions and open up and nominate other bloggers in case they weren't interested and yeah, I was just too awkward to do it, but as I mentioned in my life lately post, I'm trying to make my blog more me.

1.Tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it?

I think of my blog as a place where I can vent, it's always been the part of my life I've been most proud of. When I think that people actually click on here and read what I've written, it makes me so happy and its like I'm a part of the world and it gives me a voice.
I started blogging in 2014, as a place to refine my writing and connect with like-minded people. I had no idea what I wanted to do when I left school, other than write but I didn't think it was something you could make a career out of, so I thought I'd start blogging and see what happened and now I'm just starting my self-employed journey of freelancing and crafting choker necklaces and sponsored blog posts and what not. 

2. If there’s a takeaway you want visitors to leave your blog with what is it?

You can literally do anything you want in life. 

3. Describe yourself in three words.

I hate these kinds of questions, it's on par with 'say an interesting fact about yourself'. I'd probably say introspective, open-minded and empathetic. 

4. Would you explore the deep-sea or outer space?

The oceans, there's so much of it that's unexplored and yes, part of me may be hoping to find Mermaids in Atlantis, but to be honest I wouldn't want to go to space, it'd be too...spacey.

5. If you could go without sleep, what would you do with the extra time?

I know I should put something really exciting, but I'd probably start couponing again. I don't have a whole lot of time for it at the moment, but man I miss the discounts.

6. What advice would you give to new (or even seasoned) bloggers?

You've really got to get a momentum going and keep it going. More importantly though, make sure you're enjoying what you're writing about, otherwise there's no point.

7. How do you create new content, when it seems like everything has already been done?

I remind myself that everything anyone ever does in this world has likely to have been done before but in a different way. I normally try and add my own twist to things, I like to go into layers of meaning and provide my own analysis on topics.

8. What are your top 3 travel destinations?

I haven't been abroad before so I don't have a whole lot to offer on that front, but I'd say Brighton, London & good old Blackpool are pretty top notch.
3 Places I'd like to visit though would be Amsterdam, Vienna & California.

9. What is your most embarrassing moment?

Let's just say most of my embarrassing moments have been vodka's fault, proud to say I can handle it now though.

10. If you could have a superpower what would it be?

To read minds, or be invisible. I can't decide.

11. What do you want to accomplish in this life?

I've actually been thinking about this a lot lately, and I'm planning on doing a vision board soon, but I'd like to feel happy, present & alive and have a strong sense of inner peace first and foremost. Second to that, an author and freelance writer. Only problem is I can't write when I'm happy. Then third to that, I want to eventually open up a dog rescue centre and save as many pooches as possible.

12. Bonus/Optional: where (if applicable ) can readers find you on social media

You can find me over at:

For this post, I'm nominating every blogger reading this who hasn't yet done it. Yes, I'm copping out of tagging people, my bad, I'm awkward.
