Sunshine Blogger Award

I’m excited to announce that I’ve been nominated to follow on the Sunshine Blogger Award, woo!

The lovely, Philipa-Chloe tagged me and I’m very grateful for that. Truth be told, I had no idea what it was about until I read her post on it. So if you’re like me and need some extra knowledge then here it is:

This award is essentially for you to show some appreciation to bloggers that you talk to a lot and blogs you read often. Show them some love – in a non-weird but nice and positive way!

There are only a handful of rules and they are:

  1. Thank those who nominated you by tagging their blog.
  2. Answer the questions
  3. Nominate 11 blogs with your own 11 questions
  4. List the rules as well as display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post!

Pretty simple right? Here are the questions the lovely Philipa-Chloe has asked me to answer:

What 3 meals would you bring with you if you were stranded on a desert island?

Ok I love food so this is a difficult question for me… After some careful consideration, I have chosen a fruit salad – nutritious and healthy – also full of juice which will be needed on a hot desert island so I don’t dehydrate. Since this is fictious I’m gunna also go with a Chiquitos meal, if that’s even allowed like sorry if not. If you aren’t aware of Chiquitos, what is wrong with you? Na, I’m just kidding! Chiquito’s is a Mexican food chain and honestly their meals make my heart soar… That garlic bread tho. Sorry, I’m getting distracted. My final meal would be ice cream because I’ll need to keep cool – even if it’s likely to melt, I’ll just find a freezer somewhere, all is well!

If you had to live in a different country other than your own where would it be?

Where-oh-where would I go? Since I have so much love for the architecture I’m going to say Italy. I really adore the country and I still haven’t been yet! That fact alone breaks me a little. Every time I see pictures of any part of Italy, I just fall in love and get the urge to hop on a flight and never return. Plus, Italian’s have a speciality for pizza, pasta and coffee so I’m sold. A one-way ticket, please!

If you could have a/another sibling would you want it to be a girl or boy and older or younger?

Can I start by saying one is enough? I’m surprised my hair isn’t grey from the stress mine causes me. (Just kidding, you know in case you ever read this). I’d love to have a younger sister that I could dress up in all the Disney costumes this earth has to offer. Honestly, baby clothes make me cry. They’re just so tiny and adorable. Ok, off-track again but I’d love to be the protective but encouraging older sister type. You go achieve those dreams, but put your helmet on if you ride the bike… You know, that sort of thing.

Which friends character would be you BFF?

I would genuinely love to be friends with Joey. I think he’s my fave Friends character because he’s so dopey, but really caring at the same time. Remember that episode when Monica was upset because she wanted to have children but no-one to have them with and he was there telling her about her ideal life and hugged her? Man, my heart couldn’t take it. So sweet!

Blair or Serena?

Another fave show of mine, I watched it soooo many times that I had to take a break before I lost my mind. I’d go with Blair. Serena always got on my nerves and besides how amazing she looks – Blake Lively, swoon – her character was just meh. Blair had good character development as the seasons went on and she always showed people who was boss. I appreciated her courageous and go-getter attitude. Although, I never agreed with any of the characters bully tactics – that was always their downfall.

What is your most prized possession?

My most prized possession is a diamond ring my gran gave me for Christmas when I was 18. That age is a guesstimate but it seems legit so I’ll roll with it. The sentimental value attached to it will always keep it close to my heart. It was my great-grandmother’s that she passed down to my gran. I never got to meet my great-grandmother and that’s always been something I’ve felt disappointed about. I’ve heard that she was an amazing person so to have something that was hers means a lot to me. I hope she’s proud of what I’ve achieved in life so far.

What movie/musical soundtrack do you have on repeat?

Currently, I am OBSESSED with The Greatest Showman soundtrack. I absolutely love From Now On, I find it’s quite an empowering song. The only song I skip is Tightrope, sorry I find it to be awful so I can’t bring myself to listen to it. I saw Legally Blonde recently so I have that soundtrack on constantly as well!

Favourite Disney character?

Girl, really, this is another difficult one for me. You know though, I do love Stitch. Ok, so he’s a bit evil at the start of the movie but that was the way they created him. His character development makes me sob every time and when he’s been reading the ugly duckling then goes for a wander and ‘I’m lost’… God damn, send me help. I really, really love that film with my whole heart.

Favourite summer holiday?

I have to go with New York. I adore that city. Sure, it’s not the cleanest of places but if you’d see my city then you’d see why it doesn’t bother me as much. I had the most amazing time when I was there and it was my first holiday with friends! I wrote a whole blog post about time there so check it out if you want to know more!

If you had to dress in one colour for the rest of your life what would it be?

I might as well go with black. It’s a versatile colour, matches with every other colour and it looks professional, too. Given that you’re wearing a particularly business-like outfit, of course.

Why did you start blogging?

Now, I would love to tell you that… but I did write a full blog post on this one too. Shameless plug, right? Bottom line is that I love writing and that spurred me on to write about things that I enjoy most.

So there’s my answers. Here are my 11 nominees:












My 11 questions:

  1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, which one place would you most like to visit?
  2. If there’s one activity you’d most like to do, what is it? (skydiving, scuba-diving, etc)
  3. What is your favourite movie?
  4. Do you believe in the after life? (going deep here guys)
  5. What do you feel is the most important thing in your life right now?
  6. What’s your dream job?
  7. What are your future aspirations?
  8. Which musical would you most like to be in – which character would you play?
  9. What is your favourite book?
  10. Which 3 things would you take with you to a Desert Island?
  11. Do you watch any documentaries – if so, which one has been your favourite so far?

Until next time,

Luce xo
