I woke up this morning to my first nomination on WordPress; Sunshine Bloggers Award by this wonderful blog  50firstdateswithme .

Thank you so much for this nomination, May your days be filled with sunshine.

  • Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the awards and write them 11 questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post on your blog.

Answers to the Questions:

  1. Describe your blog in a few words?

It’s all about self discovery and personal growth, more like an avenue for me to put things i have come to understand over the years into words, the hurdles and challenges while learning new ways to cope and of course, baring my soul out there and see if someone/anyone can relate basically.

2. What is your favorite pastime when not blogging?

That would be reading. Just finding a nice corner with a good book, i do a bit of window shopping too sometimes and when i can’t do all these, i settle for a nice movie with something to chew by the side;)

3.  If you were singing karaoke, what song would you choose?

Someone like you by Adele

4. In reference to question #3, why would you choose that song? Memories? You know it really well?? What does that song mean to you?

I’d choose the song because Adele is one of my faves, that particular song is one of my favourites, i know it word for word and yeah, it was a time in my life where i could relate with it perfectly as i was going through the same thing

5. Favorite movie of all time?

Okay this is hard because I can’t pick, I have seen so many great movies and its soo hard to choose, so I’d list a few

  • For colored girls
  • Me Before You,
  • P.S. I Love You,
  • Titanic 

Yes i know, i am such a hopeless romantic.

6. Are you a lover or a fighter? Explain.

Can i choose both? I believe i am both. I am such a lover, I love love and at the same time I will never give up on something I love/want. I will fight till I have no breath in me, I never give up on anything which has been a blessing most time. So its safe to say I am more of a lover than a fighter; Love is what I’m after. But even though I’m soft on the inside, I’ve got a hard shell on the outside to protect me.

7. What is your most unusual/secret talent?

Errrr i can’t seem to think of any right now. Does knowing if i’d be close with someone on first meeting counts?

8. Pizza or Tacos?

Definitely Pizza

9. If you were going to take yourself on a date, where would you go and what would you do?

I’d most likely go to the beach. I’d pack a picnic, soak up in the sun, take wonderful pictures while I enjoy a good read

10. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes, i do.. Such a Lovebug

11. What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

I googled this one haha, it is estimated to be 24 miles per hour



Frances Elaina




Doctor Parrot

Milly Schmidt
