Sunshine Blogger Award

I have been nominated by the lovely Sophie for the Sunshine Blogger Awards! Her blog is amazing so please go over and give it some love if you haven't already. 

As I'm still very new to blogging I had no idea what this award was about so I did a little search on Twitter and looked at a few other blogger's posts. So if you also have no idea what this award is about and have been nominated I will fill you in on what you need to do:

Once you have been nominated to take part, like and retweet the lovely blogger who nominated you then read their post, after you have read their answers to the questions they were presented with (share the blogger love by following their blog) it's time to create your own post and answer the questions you were given. Afterwards choose 11 favourite bloggers to nominate and create 11 of your own questions for them to answer. So let's get started!

1. What is your favourite month of the year and why?

Hmm. I think my favourite month of the year has to be May purely because it is my birthday month (woo woo!) and this is usually the beginning of brighter mornings and sunnier days and who doesn't love a little sun? It sounds silly but I also count each birthday as a sort of 'new year, new me' to make some new goals for the year and look back to where I was on my last birthday.

2. Who is the one person that could make you smile, even on the most down of days?

I would definitely say my fiance Josh, he really is a light in the dark, whenever I have a bad day or just feel down he will always be there to cheer me up again, whether it's a simple text to tell me he loves me or a fun day out he does everything he can to make me happy and I am so thankful to have found someone so young who can make me smile on my down days. I feel as though it wouldn't be right not to include my mum in this answer too, I know it's meant to be one person but she's my rock and I can talk to her about anything and she always knows how to get me smiling again.

3. What is the best dream you had that you can remember?

This is a hard one as I only ever remember bad dreams and never the good but I can only imagine there was food and some sort of stress-free holiday involved. I wish I could think of something better but I honestly can't, sad I know.

4. What is your favourite food and why?

So like can I include breakfast, lunch, main, and about 5 millions desserts? Haha, on a serious note I am an absolute sucker for breakfast food both my fiance and mum know I could eat breakfast food all day every day for every course (which of course I don't, or try not to anyway) but if I really had to choose it would be a pasta dish for sure, what can I say I love carbs! Maybe with a side of curly fries and waffles for dessert? Now that sounds like heaven to me!

5. If you could live anywhere on the planet, where would you live?

I have thought about this a lot recently as I'm almost an adult now (anyone around my age, I know scary right?) I've been thinking a lot more about where I would love to live in the future, now even though I have only visited this place a few times and it's probably not where most people would choose to live, I would live in Brighton, I absolutely love the city and it's vibe. I love all of the differences between Brighton and Bristol and whenever I travel to Brighton I always find I am my most relaxed sitting by the lovely sea.

6. If you could only take one thing onto a dessert island with you, what would you bring?

After sitting here for 20 minutes thinking long and hard I've come up with a book. I think I would bring a book because I'm sure I would find some source of food and water but I would have no company or anything to spend my time doing so I think a book would keep me well distracted. You are probably reading this thinking really, a book? And yes really, a book.

7. What are your favourite things to blog about?

So this question is a little easier to answer (phew). My favourite things to blog are book reviews, I know I haven't been blogging for very long but I can already tell this is my favourite subject to blog about, the words just seem to flow when I'm talking about books. However I do want to do some more lifestyle posts soon and a few on self care tips.

8. Where was the last place that you traveled to?

So by this I think you mean long distance travel as I travelled to the City Centre today but that isn't very interesting. So the last long distance travel was to Brighton and I miss it so much. I went on a week away with my fiance and we had the best time! It was our second time visiting Brighton together and we loved it just as much as the first and I think we are planning to go back for a third sometime in the near future.

9. What song makes you happy as soon as you listen to it?

The song that makes me happiest when I listen to it is definitely Flames by David Guetta, when I first listened to this song I was going through a pretty awful time (I won't go into details) but it seemed to make it a little easier somehow and now every time I listen to it I think of how it always managed to make the rough time easier and now it just makes me happy.

10. What colour is your bedroom?

My bedroom has plain white walls and grey carpet but I'm currently in slow stages of redecorating as I want more of a modern look. I really spend too much time on pinterest looking at pictures of modern bedrooms decorated with marble and rose gold. Dreamy.

11. How do you eat your jaffa cakes?

Firstly, I love this question. Secondly I may have to steal this question as it's such an important one! ;) I eat my jaffa cakes by peeling off all the chocolate first, then I eat the sponge layer and then of course the jelly and I am sorry but if you eat your jaffa cakes any other way we can't be friends... Just kidding.
