Thank you to @beyondthefrontcover for nominating me for this award. It is a pleasure and honour to be nominated especially considering that my blog is relatively new. Since I am still tinkering with WordPress and I cannot figure out how to tag someone in my blog post besides myself (the greatest irony of it all) I am inserting the link for @beyondthefrontcover blog below:
- Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to his/her blog.
- Answer their questions.
- Nominate up to 9 other bloggers and ask them 5 new questions.
- Notify the nominees through their blog by visiting and commenting on their blog.
- List the rules and display the “Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award” logo.
- Provide the link of the award creator of Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award as Rising Star from https://idealinspiration.blog/
I have been asked to answer the same questions that was asked of her so the questions and my answers are below:
What do you do to unwind/de-stress/relax?
Drink a cup of tea, colour (I have an adult colouring book which works wonders), and cuddle with my boyfriend while we watch Netflix (oxytocin).
Are you an early bird type of person, a night owl, or somewhere in between?
I am neither a morning person nor a night person. Give me the chance and I will sleep in late and go to sleep early.
Do you have a favourite movie character? Who is it and from what movie?
Favourite character is Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. I love the novel and the movie lived up to my expectations.
Who is your favourite artist or what is your favourite artwork?
Favourite artwork is Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night. When I was about fourteen we had to replicate the painting. Long story short – when I completed the painting I had developed an appreciation for that piece.
Which of your blog posts is your favourite?
My favourite blog post so far is the one where I shared my struggles with my body image and having pcos. The feedback from the blog post was heartwarming and it helped other women realize they are not alone. Link below:

When I drafted this blog post originally I was not following this blogger. However I do believe in giving young people a chance and especially because this is a teen blogger, sometimes a nudge in the right direction helps. One of her blog posts really made me smile because it reminded me of my teenage years.
Without further ado, I would like to acknowledge and nominate:
