  1. What cereal is your favourite? 

Hmm… Any kind of granola really.

  1. What games did you enjoy to play when you were younger? 

Oh, so many! But I think the most of our time, my sisters and I would play Play Mobil all day! I loved that so much!

  1. If you could go to one school from a high school movie which one would you go to? (Duff?, Easy A?, High school musical?)

I have no idea. I’m not the biggest high school movie fan, but I liked Glee (which is a series, sorry) SO maybe I would go there.

Blogger recongnition award –

From Caitlin

Here are the Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select five other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them.

How my blog started:

My blog started with me discovering some amazing blogs, that I loved to read. I then thought that blogging would totally fit to me and I decided to try it this year! Here I am now!

Advice

  1. Write about what you’re passionate

Your readers can tell if you really care about what your writing. It’s so important to stay yourself and to be a hundred percent happy with your post. Otherwise you’re going to go under and to give it up. Invest a lot of time to get ideas and don’t just post for the sake of it. Post because you want to share something.

  1. Don’t let down days tear you down

Every blogger has down days, where nothing works like expected. If a certain blogpost doesn’t get the response you wanted it too, don’t let that tear you down. There are days, where you have almost no traffic on your blog. And that’s okay. It happens to everyone. Remember that there were better days already and yet to come. Don’t let these down days stop you.

My nominees:

Olita

Amethyst Rose Beauty

Something glitters

Of lashes and leith
