I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award

Hello friends!

I was kindly nominated by The charming misfit for a Liebster award. This is a special award that bloggers nominate and give to their fellow bloggers. It is an awesome way for people to discover and fall in love with new blogs. So I hope you’ll read along to find out more about me…

Angie (the Charming Misfit) has presented me with the following questions:

Why did you start your blog?

I have always loved to write. I was never very good at speaking to people, but give me a pen and paper and I’ll pour out my heart. As a young girl I had endless half used notebooks full of (absolutely awful) stories, songs and poems I had created. I used to journal all of my adventures. Then as my passion for cooking flourished, I decided a blog would be the perfect place to combine the two.

How did you come up with the name for your blog?

I wanted it to reflect my passion for food and experiences in the kitchen and in life. To me, cooking is about creating, making mistakes, making a mess and learning as you go. You inevitably have sticky fingers, and who knows how many shirts I would have ruined without my apron.

How long have you been blogging?

As of October, I have been a blogger for one year (and loving every minute of it.)

Where would you like your blog to be in a year?

I would love for it to continue to grow. It is my dream that I will reach and affect hundreds, if not thousands of people. I want to be a source of inspiration, motivation and joy. I want to make people feel happy, accepted and challenged when they read my blog. I want to broadened the focus of my blog from just food to overall health and wellness. My goal is to change lives. If I can help even just one person, I will have succeeded.

Who do you look up to?

I have a great number of role-models. People who are boldly telling their stories and fighting the norms of society to help others. The key individuals who inspire me to continue doing what I do are:

Maddy Moon

Hannah Darvas

Sarah Tamburrini

Plantbased Pixie

Outside of blogging, what is your day job?

Currently I am studying a Bachelor of Science at University. My major is Food and Nutrition. If I’m not hunched over a pile of textbooks then you might find me pounding the pavement (running that is) or getting lost in other’s blogs.

What is something random about you?

Probably a better question would be ‘what is normal about you?’ because I tend to think I’m a wee bit odd, or as my Dad says, “you are peculiar in an endearing way.”

Something different is that I love to collect socks. While packing for uni, I discovered I have an embarassing number of patterned socks, but I just can’t stop. I think it’s an illness.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

A butterfly. They are so delicate, graceful and beautiful. To me they are a symbol of innocence, purity and happiness. They are able to flutter around spreading joy without a care in the world.

What do you do for fun?

I daydream about life, love and adventures. Or I watch period dramas and get far too emotionally invested.

What advice would you give to someone thinking about starting a blog?

Go for it! At the start it might be just your parents and close friends who read and comment, but don’t let that stop you. You don’t have to be perfect…or even that good. But if you have something special you want to share with the world…then don’t let anything stop you!

You will meet an amazing bunch of people and make plenty of new friends. If you do think blogging is for you, I could always do with more friends!
