Liebster Award Nomination!

Liebster Award Nomination!


I would like to thank Eimear from Chirps From A Little Red Hen for nominating me for the Liebster Award. This is such a great initiative for new bloggers. I'm delighted to give you all a little insight into me and my blog!

My Questions

What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I love the freedom of blogging, I can write what I want and when I want.  I'm not really the type of person who can handle confrontation, I tend to get flustered when I'm put on the spot so blogging lets me express what I want to, in my own time!
How do you decide what your going to blog about?
Each Monday I blog about my weight loss/fitness/health/lifestyle but other than that I have no particular method to choosing my latest blog post. I always have 6-10 drafts saved so that I can edit and post when I feel its ready!
If you were to interview someone for your blog, who would it be?
That's a good question but I think I'd like to interview The Peru Two, Michaella McCollum and Melissa Reid!
Why would you interview this person?
I love the programme "Banged Up Abroad" and so I'm fascinated by their story. I would just love to hear the TRUTH and understand why they did what they did!
What do you do if you get "writers block"?
To be honest this hasn't happened to me yet as I am still so new to the blogging world but hopefully it wont be an issue! I'm sure that if it does happen then I'll probably just take some time out to "Reboot" and see if that helps.
What's your ideal night in?
My ideal night is to be curled up by the fire with a glass of wine, a nice meal and a good film or documentary on the TV (I'm very boring really!!!!)
Where's the last place you went for a break?
Does the spare bedroom count?? My husband will look after the little man one night a week so that I can have a good night sleep. He works nights so its quite hard on him too! But the last holiday that I was on was my honeymoon in Sept 2013 to Cancun.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
 As much as I loved Australia I think it would have to be somewhere in America because its not as far away from home. Possibly in a mansion with a pool somewhere along the Pacific Coast in California!
If someone was to write a movie about you, who would play you?
I don't have a favourite actress and so this question has really stuck me! Maybe Reese Witherspoon!
What's the last film you saw in the cinema?
Its been so long that I cant remember but I'll take a guess that it was "Bridesmaids"
If you were to write a book, what would it be about?
If it were possible I would write and advise book to my 12 year old self.
