Three Awards!!!

Shamefully, I started this draft about a month ago…^^ Now I finally got round into finishing it:

Trying to get an overview of my messy world (the blog and my life 😉 ) I would finally like to share that I feel deeply honoured that I’ve been nominated for three different awards in these past few weeks months 🙂 I couldn’t believe it and am deeply grateful and feel bad I haven’t gotten back to the dear bloggers that have nominated me 😦

As my life is quite stormy at the moment, I will try to merge these three awards as it’s just not within my possibilities right now to accept the three of them fully – so I hope that’s fine with everyone!

Also, please don’t feel obliged to accept the awards. Sometimes it seems like too much hassle, too many rules… Why not just go back into doing this for fun and interest in other bloggers? I have adapted these three awards and please, do so as well!

But let me resume this all for you here first:


Fellow blogger and photographer Sylvain Landry nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award on October 25th 2015 (…oh dear… talking about procrastination *blush* But you know my story of the last few months 😉 ). Thank you so much, dear Sylvain, really!!!

I started my blog out of mere curiosity – you can read more about it here.

My piece of advice to new bloggers would be to stay true to yourself ❤

  • facts 1-7 => see above 😉

Answers to Mamie’s questions:

Why blogging?

I was curious enough to try it => read more about it here.

So, what sport?

Dancing 🙂 And do not come and tell me it’s not a sport… If you take it seriously, it is the equivalence of a hard sport!!! There, I said it… 😉

You would never leave without…?

My camera and a good book ❤

Your favourite colour?

Light green or light orange. Sometimes pink 🙂 And I like white. And purple or bordeaux… (too many choices!!!)

Your favourite hobby?

Uh… again – too many choices!!! I love doing loads! From crafting to writing to dancing to traveling to painting to bumming around… And everything in between as well ❤

Tea or coffee?

Either coffee with loads of milk or tea – several cups a day ❤

Your dream destination?

I’d love to see Hawaii or the Easter Islands. Or some other cheesy island with white sand and blue warm water. Or rugged ones from up north like the Faröer, Hebrides, Shetlands or such… But the thing is I keep going back to Ireland all the time, my true dream destination ❤ ❤ ❤

Something that makes you smile?

Eavesdropping to conversations of random strangers on public transport 😀

A book you would recommend?

“The Medicus” by Noah Gordon. Or, if you like Fantasy, “Assassin’s Quest” by Robin Hobb ❤ ❤ ❤

Your music right now?

September when it comes” by Rosanne and Johnny Cash ❤ ❤ ❤ A lovely person suggested this song to me a few days back and it’s so bittersweet but mostly it makes you smile and dance to it with a deep grateful feeling… magic!

Your worst drudgery?

Work when I haven’t slept enough and don’t have nerves for what I have to do at work… urgh…

My questions:

Why blogging?

If the world stopped and you could spend a day randomly, what would you do?

You would never leave the house without…?

What are you grateful for?

Your favourite hobby?

Something you would love to do once in your life?

If you were given a flight ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go to?

Something that makes you smile?

A book you would recommend?

Your music right now?

A movie that made you cry?

My nominations

I will be selecting a few new blogs I have come across lately that I really liked. I think this is all about sharing and getting to know new blogs.

Dear nominees, feel free to pick an award if you like to, and to adapt all sort of rules if necessary. This should be fun and no hassle ❤ Don’t feel obliged to accept and pass it on, either 🙂 I would still love to share your blog link here with others as I feel you deserve it ❤

Those of you who nominated me – you deserve to be mentioned here again if that’s ok as I feel your blogs are worth to be shared and looked at ❤

  1. That’s an award harvest! And you truly deserve your awards. There’s something enticing about your blog, it’s inspiring yet down-to-earth, and I love it how it reflects your everyday life. And, of course, thank you so much for your kind nomination! I’ll see what I’ll do about it, I’m tempted to take the challenge and tweak it a little, since you offer no rules but guidelines, which is much more pleasant 😀
