I Got An Award … A Liebster Award!



Emy, over at Like Mother Like Daughter nominated this here little blog of mine for the Liebster Blog Award, thanks Emy and thanks for the mention in your post too! In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve kind of been struggling with inspiration to blog of late, so I figured, why the hell not, I’m gonna accept the award and have some fun writing some random stuff!

So here are my questions answered:

1. What are you really really good at?

Nothing? Drinking wine?

I’m really good at being competitive! I’m really good at sales and marketing on account of the fact that I”m highly persuasive and have no problem pushing people to see things my way! I’m also really good at getting my own way! 🙂

2. If you were a character from a movie or a series, who would you be and why?

Lagertha from Vikings. Because… well currently because it’s my favorite TV show, because she’s beautiful and she’s tough, because she’s brave and knows what she wants and how to go about getting it.



3. What does a normal day in your life look like?

4am Wake up, followed by a quick coffee and a bit of reading. By 5am I head out to run, I usually try to run between 7 – 9km’s 3 times a week. Then it’s home to pack school bags and get lunches packed, breakfasts made and showering in record time to hit the road, get Hannah to school and myself in the office before 08h30. Then it’s work work work, meetings meetings meetings and then a dash from work to collect Ava from after care, get home, pack school lunches for the following day, have a cup of coffee, start making supper, feed the dogs, feed the kids, bath the kids, finish supper, eat said supper, shower and fall into bed at around 9pm. Pretty boring but pretty hectic!

4. Who is your favourite author and why?

Colleen Hoover, because I’ve never read a book of hers I didn’t love!

5. 3 of your favourite books? ( I need some new reading material)

I review my favorite reads over here – Book Reviews, so if you’re looking for something to reach, check out my reviews.

6. What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Oh, gosh, maybe I’m a bit of a hedonist, but so many things bring me pleasure and I rarely feel guilty about it. My books, my wine and good coffee are just 3 of my most pleasurable things, I could give you a longer list, but that may be considered TMI!

7. What are your favourite Youtube channels?


8. Which items can you not leave home without?

My sunnies, my wallet, perfume and make up!

9. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

The mother of a pre-teen… God help me!

10. What is your favourite thing to blog about?

Anything and everything really! I started blogging back in 2008 and it’s a hobby that has just stuck!

11. What is 1 skill or hobby that you have always wanted to learn?

Gah! Anyone who knows me will know how much I hate having to do anything crafty, so I’d love the ability to enjoy those activities with my girls, especially now that they’re both in school and these types of crafty projects are popping up regularly!

I’m not going to nominate anyone in particular, only because this has been doing the rounds for quite a few week’s now and pretty much everyone has taken part or been nominated. So there you go!

    I love Lagertha for all the reason you mentioned, but also I’m totally crushing on her hair! I LOVE the braids and stuff, wish I could pull it off myself.
