Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.
Hey Loves! I hope you’re having an amazing day so far. This was a long awaited post and I finally managed to do it, a lot of lovely bloggers have been nominating me for various awards and I’m extremely thankful for that. Posting once a week can be difficult sometimes (for me) that’s why it took me some time to do it.
As you can see, I’ve combined all the awards & tag into one post, it was the most practical thing for me to do so I could make sure that I’ve covered all your award nominations. I’m pretty sure I missed some award nominations and I really apologise for that. I’ll try my best to find them and do next time. Also, a future note to myself, from now on I’ll make sure to do any award nominations and tags as soon as you nominate me (I promise!).
In addition, I nominate all of you guys for these awards and tag, not because I’m lazy to pick (maybe kind of..) but so far from all the bloggers I see in this platform, you all guys put so much time and effort in your blog content and I couldn’t simply choose a number of bloggers when you all deserve as much as each other. If you have already been nominated and have done this tag, let me know in the comments below! I would love to read your posts!
BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD
I’ve been nominated for the blogger recognition award by these three gorgeous bloggers: B
- Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
- Write a post to show your award
- Give a brief story of how your blog started
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
- Select 15 other bloggers for this award
- Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created
The Story Of My Blog
I started my blog 2 years ago, one of the reasons I created my blog was the fact that I loved reading other people’s blogs and I was always interested in the blogging world in terms of blog design, social media, etc. Also, I wanted to have a platform to share my hobbies and passion, to raise awareness on some issues and to speak with other people who share the same passion as me.
Actually I have more than two pieces of advice to new bloggers, my first piece of advice is to upload regularly. Make sure you upload consistently, it doesn’t have to be two or three times a week, find a schedule that works with your routine and make sure you stick with it.
Never compare your blog with other bloggers, whether it’s in terms of content, blog design, number of followers, just do not.
Be patient, if you feel that you don’t get as much recognition as you deserve and you don’t receive a lot of likes & comments or in general people don’t follow you, don’t give up. These things don’t happen overnight, work hard and you’ll see the result one day.
VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD
I’ve been nominated for the versatile blogger award by Out N’ About. Thank you so much Elena for nominating me! Make sure to check out her blog, she has a beautiful blog where she shares everything from fashion to lifestyle.
- You have to thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog! (being kind).
- Nominate at least 15 bloggers of your choice.
- Link the nominees and inform them about their nomination.
- Share 7 facts about yourself (being truthful!)
1- If you don’t already know, I’m a huge fan of horror movies. I have literally watched all the horror movies in all the languages you could possibly think about.
2- I used to speak 6 different languages fluently but now I can only speak 3.
3- I’m so picky when it comes to food, if I don’t like something I won’t even touch it that’s why I only buy and order food that I know for sure I’m going to like and eat it so from that way I don’t waste the food.
4- I can still remember people that I met while I was in the bus or street when I was 3 years old. I don’t forget anybody’s faces and they always come up in my dreams, my friends find it amazing but I, on the other hand find it creepy.
5- I’m really interested about myths, urban legends, mysteries, unsolved crimes, etc.
6- People can never guess my ethnicity or neither my nationality right, they always get it wrong.
7- I properly started to wear makeup when I was around 19/20 years old.

1.Thank the person who nominated you.
2.Answer the 11 questions.
3.Tag 11 people.
4.Give them 11 questions to answer.
What do you when you are most stressed?
I always make a fool out of myself when I’m stressed out so I always try not to over exaggerate anything or make it seem obvious.
What’s the best thing you ever bought?
There are so many good things I’ve bought but I can’t really say a best thing, if I had to pick the best one, it will always be any materialistic things that are more on the investment side.
What’s the worst thing you ever bought?
There are so many makeup products that just sit in my makeup collection, either the shade doesn’t suit my skin tone or the quality of the product is too bad. If I had to name some of them, it will be a lip crayon from Rimmel London, a beauty blender (I don’t remember the brand), some lipsticks from Essence Cosmetics, etc.
Are you on the messy side or the organized side?
I’m in between (does that count?), when it comes to some thing, I’m super organised but for some things, I have to admit I’m so messy!
TV or YouTube ?
YouTube without a doubt!
Where do you spend most of your time?
At home, I’m not really into party or that type of things so most of the time, I’ll be at home in my PJs or loungewear.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up, other than checking your phone?
I open my curtains.
What should your nickname be?
I have had plenty of nicknames such as nini, nive, nivea, etc. over the years lol! To be honest, I don’t know, I obviously want something cute and unique.
Spring or Summer?
Actually neither of them, lol! I’m more into autumn and winter.
What’s your motto in life?
Everything is going to be okay in the end.
Boots or Flip-flops?
Once again thank you so much for nominating me! If I forgot to mention your name, I truly apologise for that and I’ll try my best to do the remaining nominations!
