Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers’ Award

 

I’m not even going to pretend like I knew what this was before I was nominated, but nominated I was (twice!) so here I go. Thank you Michelle and Cake And Whisky for that!

Here are the rules:
1) Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link them in your post.
2) Answer the ten questions you have been sent.
3) Come up with 10 questions of your own.
4) Spread the love and nominate up to 10 bloggers!

So firstly here are Michelle’s 10 questions:

1. What is your favourite book and why? 
My favourite book growing up was always The Girl With The Silver Eyes by Willo Davis Roberts, although I’m not entirely sure why. It was probably just because the protagonist had ginger hair on the cover of the version I had, and I am that easily pleased. My favourite book as an adult is Looking For Alaska by John Green. I read it whilst I was in university at the recommendation of a LOT of people (and I was a fan of the VlogBrothers anyway). I received it one Saturday morning and I finished it at about 2am on Sunday after spending most of the day reading away. I remember, too, trying to talk to people about it once I’d finished it, but the uni internet connection had gone down and my mobile internet had run out as well. It was an amazing book and I really can’t wait until the movie comes out, I just hope they do it justice!

2. What did you do today? 
Today I went to work, got stuck for an hour after my shift on the phone to customer services trying to help two very lovely customers, then went for lunch with Jess. I was going to go to the Trafford Centre to sort my phone out at the Apple store (it keeps resetting itself of its own accord!) but I really couldn’t be bothered. Maybe I’ll go tomorrow. And later I’ll be watching the season 5 finale of Game Of Thrones!

3. If you could have any pet, what would it be? 
This is probably a really very mundane answer but I’d probably get a bunny! I’ve always wanted a bunny for as long as I can remember – I bought loads of books on how to care for them and really swotted up, only for mum to tell me I would probably be allergic to their fur. Otherwise, though, maybe I’d get a Beluga Whale!

4. What’s your current favourite song and why? 
At the moment I really like Someone New by Hozier. I grew really tired of Take Me To Church very quickly but this one has stuck, and I really like it! That’s probably helped by the fact that Natalie Dormer’s in the music video and she’s definitely up there with my favourite actresses.

5. If you could give just one piece of advice for life, what would it be? 
Don’t think too hard about pleasing other people too much, if there’s something you want or need to do, you should do it, even if it’s going to upset other people. If they don’t accept that you needed to do it for yourself then they’re probably not the type of people you really need in your life, sadly.

6. Do you have a favourite quote and what is it? 
I don’t really! I find quotes a bit of a weird thing, the fact that you can say something and other people can go around attaching you to those words is all a little bit daunting for me. Maybe I’ll just say I liked the fact that Alexander Graham Bell answered the telephone with “ahoy-hoy.”

7. What do you enjoy reading most in other people’s blogs? 
I really like the nosey bits of lifestyle posts like ‘here’s what I did this week,’ and ‘let me tell you about my pet,’ and cute things like that!

8. What’s your worst habit? 
Procrastination. No doubt about it.

9. What’s your favourite film and why? 
Inception. I love the way it makes you think, and you have to focus, and the characters are brilliant. Also, Christopher Nolan is my favourite director and Leonardo DiCaprio is my favourite actor, so that plays a part.

10. How would you spend the perfect day?
I would probably spend it on a plane going somewhere beautiful and watching a sunset.

Next are cakeandwhisky’s questions:

1. Your favourite season?
I know you wanted me to say summer but it has to be autumn!!
2. Your Pokemon soulmate?
Mew!
3. What’s ALWAYS in your bag?
My purse, my glasses, and my headphones.
4. Your guilty pleasure? 
None of my pleasures are guilty, thank you very much. Hahaha, I probably eat too much white chocolate, though.
5. Your #1 summer goal?
To be able to spend my two weeks away from work not thinking about work at all. And maybe to get some nice things in the summer sales.
6. Something you didn’t like as a kid but love now?
I’m actually quite a stubborn person who’s pretty difficult to change so that’s a tough question. I can give you plenty of things I liked as a kid that I hate now! Okay, I’ll just say that I didn’t like the concept of DVDs when they first became a thing because I loved VHS videos but as soon as I saw something on DVD I was instantly converted.
7. Things you ALWAYS buy at IKEA? 
I don’t buy things at Ikea ahh! My mum always ends up buying something which my brother and I end up having to assemble, but I never personally actually buy anything. Although I always stop to look at the bag clips, as well as the wall art.
8. Which Hogwarts House will you probably be in? 
I took the test on Pottermore and it told me Ravenclaw, which I was gutted about at the time because I wanted to be a Gryffindor, but once I read the information about it all I found myself agreeing with most of the points. So now I fully embrace my Ravenclawness.
9. The one thing you always forget even though you really shouldn’t! 
Oh my god, everything. I’m a very forgetful and distractible person. I’ll go onto Google and I’ll be like “hang on.” I’ll go on Twitter to search for someone’s account and get distracted by a trending topic and end up completely forgetting why I went on Twitter in the first place. I walk into a room and forget what I was there for!

 

 

 

 

 

10. Where would you much rather be right now? 
Where should I begin?! I’d love to be in Germany or Austria, or Malaysia, or somewhere in America. But at least the sun has just started shining so that’s making me feel a little better.
Now it’s my turn, here are the 10 bloggers I’m nominating to do this next!
And here are the questions I want you guys to answer~
1. What was the last movie you watched? How was it?
2. What’s your favourite pizza topping?
3. How do you take your eggs?
4. What’s your favourite drink?
5. Here’s a free plane ticket. Where’s it going to?
6. Everyone likes cheesy boybands, which one is/was your favourite?
7. Have you ever been to a music festival? If yes: which one, and how was it? If no: would you like to go to one, and why/why not?
8. What was the last sweet treat you ate?
9. What are your plans for tomorrow?
10. Pull one random fact out of the air about yourself.
 
Enjoy!
