🎉Blogger Recognition Award! 🎉

✨Hello Everyone!

✨It’s been quiet a while since I have done an award blog post. So I was delighted when TheBeauty&FoodLab nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award🎉.

✨Rules: Let’s get these out of the way first.

✨-Thank the blogger who nominated you while providing a link to the blog site.

TheBeauty&FoodLab is the property of the lovely Shehnaz. It is really a visual treat with stunning photographs, mouth watering recipes and beauty reviews. I highly recommend you check it out and many thanks to her for this nomination 😘

✨-Discuss the reason for starting the blog and talk a little bit about it.


✨I started the blog for two reasons actually. One I was very bored, 😐I had just started my studies, we had just moved to the UAE and I didn’t know a soul and had no idea what to do with my time.

Two I had a habit of writing really long statuses on Facebook 😋. Usually about something interesting/ outrageous or hilarious. A lot of my friends enjoyed reading those so they would encourage me to start a blog. However since I’m a technical dummy I really didn’t want to get into the entire HTML , coding or *%# crap. However as it so happened my first semester ended up being a stress fest and it got me riled that I sat and wrote a 1000 words about my experience. At that very time I got an email from the university asking for volunteer bloggers for the uni student blog. So feeling excited I sent in my blog post only to hear …Nothing.

So I thought to myself oh well it was probably a crappy piece and forgot all about it. The semester ended and about that time I got the same email again requesting blog posts from student volunteers. So I made a few tweaks and resent my post. And would you believe it heard back from the head of student affairs within a few mins. She wrote that she had seen my article before but had got caught up and it had slipped her mind and seeing it again today reminded her. 

She gave me directions to set up an account on WordPress and my post went live the same day and that fellow bloggers was the official start to my blogging journey. 😇 Here is a link to the article incase you want to take a look. 

Read Me😘

I made a separate account for my personal blogging . I had a hunch the university would not be interested in reading about the latest eyeliner I was currently fancying 😜.

And well, you guys know the rest about the blog. It’s mostly product reviews, funny stories and my love for posing for the camera 😋.

✨-Give 2 advices to fellow bloggers/readers.

Be genuine, your blog should reflect your personality.

 Write like you would talk about something, don’t use overly complicated vocabulary, just be yourself. 

✨-Nominate 15 bloggers who you think deserve this accolade.

This part takes me forever to be honest to link the blogs 😫.

I’ll nominate 5 people honestly there are so many I would love to do but the linking thing drives me insane 😖.

Liebster Award Nominations!! ✨🎉

Hello lovely people! 💖

Thanks to the wonderful Cinderzena😘 I have received my 2nd nomination for the Liebster award🎊!

image

You would think Carolina Herrera or Oscar de larenta would have sent over a free gown 👗 by now 😉!

Anyways thanks a bunch💐 to Cinderzena

a modern day 👑 , Jaffa cake loving Cinderella ✨! Check out her awesome blog and as well those of the nominees below that I have picked out .

But before that here are my answers to the questions asked to me by Cinderzena 🖋

How did you come up with your blog name and how hard was it to figure it out?

👑It was easy peasy actually i adore 💖shopping so it had to be something around that .

What inspires you to keep going?

👑I like making people laugh or atleast enjoy themselves and everytime I see a positive comment it’s like a surge of adrenaline. I mean let’s face it majority of us starting out don’t make any money or fame from blogging so it’s just the love💖 of writing and having your work appreciated that keeps us all going . 💋

Whats the craziest activity you have done in the past three years?

👑I’ve done a lot of crazy stuff in the last three years which I cannot reveal here at the risk of being prosecuted 😇

Country or city life, and why?

👑I’m a city girl born and raised , I can’t stand country life I get bored out of mind if all I have for company is the birds and the bees 😳

Reading or listening to music, and why?

👑I only listen to music when I’m working out or doing something equally boring 🎧. Like washing dishes ☹️. I loved to read , but since Harry Potter I haven’t really found anything that I can be addicted to again 😢📚

One thing you believed as a kid, but now think it is totally dumb of you to think of.

👑I was a total believer in fairytale romance💖 all through my teenage years and beyond but after being badly burned I now realize that true love and happily ever after doesn’t exist. 💔

image

✨Whats the best part about blogging?

👑I can reach out to so many people and make friends ✨💞.I used to and still do at times feel incredibly lonely at times 😢😞 blogging helps overcome that.

✨ Would you chose swimming in a sea with the possiblity of a shark encounter or bungee jumping?

👑hmm I have a fear of heights so I guess I’ll attempt a showdown with a shark 😲

✨Favorite novel of all time?

👑All Harry Potter books I’m sorry I’m not much of a classics fan 😳

What has been a post in your blog that took the longest to write?

👑Its a post that’s still in the draft stages that I am struggling with for two weeks now 😡 It’s just not funny enough and if it can’t make me laugh then it’s not good enough for anyone else either cause I’m not easily tickled ☹ p.s I’m my own Guinea pig 🐷

Advice to first time bloggers?

👑Don’t get caught up in the number game that I must have 200 followers or whatever. Write with passion and people will fall in love with your work and hit that follow button without you even trying.

❣I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know a teeny bit more about me ☺️ And now here are the rules for the Liebster Award Nominees ✨
