for an award!

A little while ago Marleisa from This is who I am nominated me for the Liebster Award and asked me to answer the following questions.
  1. Your dream holiday? Anywhere where I can relax and read a book and sleep and drink nice wine away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. I'm thinking somewhere with amazing sunsets and beautiful long days!
  2. Wine or beer? Wine..hands down no contest here! Preferably a sweet white!
  3. Favourite celebrity and why? I would have to say Ellen DeGeneres. I not only think she is funny but I think she does amazing things with her celebrity status while many of them just take it for granted. I love her positive outlook on life and how she stands up for what she believes in!
  4. Your most viewed blog post was? It's funny because it's the one I wrote about having a lesson in blogging but yet no-one has commented
  5. Favourite pastime (besides blogging) Scrapbooking is a loved hobby of mine although I never seem to have any time for it anymore! :-(
  6. Dream occupation? If I knew the answer to this then maybe I'd be doing it!!! Perhaps a photographer of some description, maybe wildlife (African Safari style, not birds! lol)
  7. Favourite social media and why? I had always been a big Facebook fan and user but this year have explored Twitter and obviously now blogging so too early to tell which one I like the most. I guess I'd still have to say Facebook though as that's still where most of my friends are.
  8. TV show addiction? Far too many to chose from.... Revenge, Greys, Bones, Criminal Minds, Dexter, Homeland, Hart of Dixe, Sons of Anarchy, Smash, Dallas, Downton Abbey...the list really is endless!
  9. Early riser or night owl? Sadly at the moment I am both! But given a choice I'd say Night Owl
  10. How do you like your eggs cooked? Poached! But I can never get them right
  11. Favourite childhood memory? Playing 'houses' down at the creek.. lol..
And now for my nominees, sorry if any of you have been nominated before but I have enjoyed reading your blogs so hope you don't mind!

Six By The Bay
My Journey - Am I there yet?
Colours of Sunset

And now for my questions
1. Favourite quote/saying?
2. Entree or dessert?
3.Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life and why?
4. Favourite holiday of the year?
5. Childhood hero?
6. What book are you currently reading?
7. Guilty pleasure?
8. Why did you start blogging?
9. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be and why?
10. Diamonds or Pearls?
11. What do you know about blogging now that you wish you new when you first started?

Look forward to reading your responses and thanks again Marleisa for the nomination!


  1. Thank you SO much for the nomination - I feel really honoured that you thought of me !! I will attempt to answer your questions in the next week or two. I think I may make it a HUGE award post as I have been nominated before but never done anything about it !! Thanks for the push that I needed,
    Have a great week !

  2. Thank you for the nomination Zita! I am also very honoured that you thought of me. Sorry I've been slack in replying! I've been away on holidays. I sent you an email when I was away. I have also been nominated by Blundermum so I think I will answer all 22 questions in the one post haha! I was nominated late last year and did a post then answering questions and forwarding it on to 11 new bloggers. I'm not sure if I can come up with another 11 new bloggers to pass the award to but I will try! I can hopefully get to it within the next couple of weeks. Min xo

    1. No worries Min! Hope you had a nice break! I didn't know 11 blogs to nominate either so not sure I really followed the rules! Good luck and look forward to reading your responses!

  3. Hi Zita - I have finally done my Liebster Award post. Sorry it took me so long. You can find it here:
