The Sunshine Blogger Award

Hey everyone!

Let’s spread some joy, and what better way to do that than with the Sunshine Blogger award! Just hearing / reading the word ‘Sunshine’ is uplifting, so I can’t think of a more perfect way to spread some positivity today.

Thank you so much to Courtney for nominating me for this award. If you’re not already following her (highly unlikely) then you should be. This girl is a literal ray of sunshine and one of the nicest girls on the blogosphere, plus one of the coolest too. Her blog is always fun to read with a great variety of posts to keep you entertained and interested. Courtney recently moved States so I’m loving following along with all of her exciting new ventures, plus her Currently posts and WUW’s are some of my favourites. Thank you again Courtney for nominating me!

So let’s start with the rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Answer their eleven questions.
  3. Nominate eleven bloggers and post eleven questions.
  4. Let the people you nominated know that they’ve been nominated.
  5. List these rules and display the logo on your post.

Courtney’s Questions

Would you ever get a fingernail tattoo instead of a regular manicure?

No. I didn’t even know this was a thing until I read this question, but anything to do with nails makes me cringe. I had acrylics done once and that was bad enough, the thought of my nails being tatted makes me *shudder*. I’ll be sticking with my nail polish!

What is your favourite place you’ve lived?

I have lived in SO many places, but I’m pretty happy where I am now. Although I wouldn’t be opposed to moving to America for a year or so, but I just want to take long vacations really! Who knows where I’ll end up? But as I said, I’m happy where I’m living now. Just get me all the holidays booked, please!

If you had to choose a preference, what is your ideal style of exercise?

Swimming, cycling and dancing are my three favourite forms of exercise. When it comes down to my home workouts, I do enjoy a good set of Sit Ups and Russian Twists. I always find those two exercises to be super effective when I’m consistent with them. I notice differences within a week when I do Sit Ups / RT’s on the daily… speaking of which, I must get back into that…

Do you have any allergies, seasonal or otherwise?

Yes. I have an allergy to antibiotics.

Do you prefer texting with your standard phone texting app or Messenger?

I use WhatsApp mostly.

What kind of phone do you have?

Is it bad that I don’t know? I think it’s the iPhone 8 but I’m honestly not sure. I’ll always have an iPhone though, I’m an Apple kind of gal (when it comes to phones, at least).

Describe your favourite breakfast.

Cereal. Simple as. Krave or Coco Pops specifically. There’s nothing more refreshing than a yummy bowl of cereal in the morning. If we’re talking going out for breakfast, I’ll get eggs on toast, scrambled or fried, along with some hash browns. Yummy!

Is LaCroix pointless and disgusting?

Hahaha this question made me laugh, but I actually had to search up what LaCroix is. Google’s telling me it’s some type of fizzy water in which case, it’s definitely not for me. I do not like fizzy water at ALL. Still water for me, please! I hope I’m right about what LaCroix is now… Google better not have played me, LOL.

What is your favourite book to date?

Ooh I’m currently loving the I Heart Series by Lindsey Kelk, but favourite books to date that I’d recommend would have to be The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, The Ice Twins by S.K Tremayne, The Power by Rhonda Byrne, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, and I really enjoyed Summer Nights at The Moonlight Hotel by Jane Costello which is probably one of my favourite chick lit novels I’ve read so far. I also think Miss You by Kate Eberlen is amazing. There’s so many books I love! I’m just going to hush now and probably round this question up by saying my all time favourite book to date is Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist. That book was powerful and life changing for me. I actually have a whole blog post coming soon on the topic of my favourite books, so if you want to know more stay tuned, it’ll be coming v soon!

What is your go-to Starbucks order?

It will always be a Caramel Hot Chocolate, though I’m not a big Starbucks drinker.

Which kind of home would you prefer the most: apartment/condo, townhouse/rowhome, or detached house?

In an ideal world, a detached house with a beautiful garden surrounding.

    1. I didn’t know fingernail tattoos were a thing either until right before I did the Sunshine award, lol! It DEFINITELY is cringe worthy but it’s like this weird new trend. I don’t think it’s actually a tattoo though, more like henna art on the fingernail instead of polish.

    2. Doesn’t it! I guess they tattoo anything these days, even eyeballs! (Which I weirdly think are kinda cool… lol).
      I have actually been doing really well with my workouts this week! Yay! How have you been getting on?
      I agree, cereal is Heaven! I’d honestly rather have cereal for breakfast than anything else tbh 😂😂 I love it!
      And we don’t have LaCroix here in the Uk (as far as I’m aware), I just know I’m not a sparkling water person hehe!
      Of course hun, I could never not include you!

      I haven’t had pineapple on pizza, now I NEED to try it! And yes! In the next 5 years time you’re totally gonna have achieved those goals! You’ll have your job and you will be buying your perfect house! Go you!

      And you are an amazing listener Rossy, I can already tell that through the attention you pay to people’s blog comments and the replies you leave ❤️ So much love to you hun, have a great week!

      1. Tattooed eyes I’ve heard of but it sounds terrifying
        I had stopped exercising for about 10 days and just started up again earlier this week so I guess ok? Lol
        Omg really?? Well if you’ve never had pineapple on pizza you’re either in for a treat or it will be the worst thing you ever tried. Or maybe you’ll be somewhere in between haha. A lot of people dont like it and claim pineapple doesnt belong on pizza. I happen to be one of those who disagrees 🤣
        Awh thanks!! Love ya! Have an amazing weekend!

  2. Awww thank you SO MUCH for those lovely and super kind words, Jennie!! You are the sweetest! Thank you so much for following my blog and being such a lovely friend. You are the most encouraging and thoughtful person!! ❤ ❤ ❤ Also thank you for tagging me, lol, I'll have to do it again for sure!!
    Fingernail tattoos are pretty cringe-worthy! I was curious because they seem like a new trend, lol. Thankfully, they aren't really a tattoo, more like henna art on your fingernails. 😉
    Russian Twists are some of my favorites too!!
    Wait, you're allergic to antibiotics? I know I'm allergic to penicillin, but I've never heard of someone just generally allergic to antibiotics. What do your doctors prescribe if you get a bacterial infection?
    I'm such an Apple person too. iPhone & MacBook over here lol. 😉
    I've haven't had cereal in forever, I really need to! Most days I don't even have breakfast though, it makes me nauseated!
    Hahaha yes it sounds like you understood La Croix right. It's so gross. It's just carbonated water, ugh. Plain water is so much better! I will never understand people who like La Croix.
    Ooh so many good books! Now I have lots of suggestions to add to my Goodreads list, lol!
    Caramel hot chocolate?! I've never tried that but now I NEED to.
    Thank so much, Jennie!! ❤

    1. You are so welcome hun! They are more than deserved ❤️ You are the loveliest! So much love to you and of course, I couldn’t not tag you could I!!! Can’t wait to see your answers!

      Yeah I heard they grow out so I guess that’s better than what I had in mind but still, if they use a tattoo needle thing like normal then I am cringing hard 😭😭😭 Imagine! I honestly hadn’t heard of them till you mentioned them!

      I love Russian Twists!

      Yes! I don’t even know how or why but I’ve been allergic to them since I was a kid. Thankfully I’ve been pretty healthy so never needed them until a few years ago when I got a toothache (lol) and I was prescribed antibiotics. I thibk because I’m an adult now they suggested one type of antibiotic to try and luckily that was okay, I can’t remember the name of it now but I just have that one if I ever need to. My Mum has kept a list in her purse her whole life of the ones I’m confirmed allergic to bless her! (I haven’t tried every single antibiotic, but it got to the point where I tried so many and kept have reactions, they wrote me down as allergic to them all). I think I’m allergic to penicillin too 🙄 Mad!

      Hehe I don’t have a Macbook but I am all for the iPhone!!! Yes!

      Haha I’m going to try some LaCroix next time I’m in America to see just how gross it is! Imagine if I like it!

      Haha yes SO many book suggestions and omg you must try caramel hot chocolate! It’s scrumptious!

      Thanks for your comment Courtney and of course your nomination in the first place! ❤️

      1. I can’t wait to write up the award post again!! You asked some really great questions! ❤

        Haha no henna doesn't use a needle…it's more like drawing on the design. 😉 That would be horrible!

        Wow, that would be so difficult to be allergic to a lot of antibiotics! I'm sure it makes it complicated, yikes! At least you know and how kind of your mom to keep the list of them all!

        Lol you really should try La Croix when you visit again, I'd love to know what you think!

        Caramel hot chocolate is definitely on my Starbucks to-try list now! It sounds perfect for chilly days. 🙂

    1. Awwwe I love you! Thank you for always making my day and being a ray of sunshine in my life! Hahahaha oh bless her! That’s such a commitment 😭 and some people tattoo eyeliner I believe! Maybe even lipstick too! Haha it makes me cringe too! Just the thought of it omg 😭😭 I’ll stick to my nail art thanks! No way!!!!! I’m glad we agree on this one! Most people I know would opt for still water tbf, but my Mum doesn’t mind sparkling water. I just don’t find it refreshing at all and it’s like, water is supposed to be refreshing! You’re welcome hun! Have the best day! Xx

  4. Aww yay, thanks for tagging me, Jennie. ♡ I can’t wait to answer your questions!

    I agree about Russian Twists– they really are so effective when done correctly & consistently!

    I’m laughing at your answer to the LaCroix question, “Google better not have played me.” 🤣

    I need to check out all the books you listed & I have never had a Caramel Hot Chocolate. Sounds yummy!

    1. You are so welcome hun, of course!

      YES! So glad to see a fellow Russian Twist lover. I did some today and they felt so good, perfect for ab workouts!

      Haha well you never know 😂 Anyway it seems I’m correct, I’m so trying this drink when I come to America! Exciting!

      Yes they’re so fantastic. I think you’d love ‘The Ice Twins’! The hot chocolate is my fave 😍😍

      Thanks for stopping by Hunida, have the best weekend xxx

      1. I just did some of those Russian twists yesterday but I’m on an ab break today lol I’m sore! I hate the LaCroix drink but I’m so curious if you’d like it– a lot of people seem to! I’ll have to look up ‘the ice twins’!!

        Hope you have the best weekend, too, Jennie!! ❤
