~A Liebster Award Nomination~

 

 

liebster award

 

How very grand, I have been nominated for the Liebster Award!  It is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers.  And a great way to discover and connect with other bloggers.  I have to say that 1-2 years ago I would have never imagined starting my blog.  But I am supremely glad that I did.  I have already connected with some truly lovely and supportive people and have finally found my place (or niche ;D) in the world.

The rules state that you have to answer the questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you.  And for me that was the delightful Shell Maria from The Sun Mama blog.  As I said I have connected with some great people and Shell Maria is one of them so please go stop by her blog and give her some love!

 

What is your favorite song and why?

There is only one song that keeps coming back into my head and it’s In Joy and Sorrow by H.I.M.  I have spoken about them previously, but they are a Finnish metal band who stole my heart for the longest time.  I was very much infatuated with the lead singer Ville Valo, who has a dark, mysterious and VERY sexy aura about him.  He has a tattoo on his stomach that I may or may not have copied and got tattooed on my back… Ok I did.  That was the depths of my obsession!  I actually haven’t listened to their music over the last couple of years as their last CD or 2 were not up to par.  But I still get chills when I hear this song.  Listen for yourselves and tell me what you think?

 

What is your favorite relaxing activity?

My favourite relaxing activity would be reading a good book or watching TV… So mundane I know!  But at the end of a very long day with the 2 grubs (yes I call my kids grubs!) I don’t have much energy for anything else.  The TV shows rated fairly highly in our house would be The Walking Dead, House of Cards, The Santa Clarita Diet, Preacher, Game of Thrones, Lost (gets a re-watch at least one a year), The Originals, Mr. Robot, American Horror Story.  I could go on for ages, we watch a bit of TV!  I am always on the lookout for new shows so what are your current favourites?

If you could live the life of any historical person (fact or fiction) for one day; who would it be and why?

I think it would have to be someone with a mysterious end or has knowledge of something I find very intriguing.  Lee Harvey Oswald on the day that Kennedy was shot is up there.  Amelia Earhart on the day she disappeared.  Mary Jane Kelly before she was murdered by Jack the Ripper.  I love a good mystery and those mysteries still to this day get me thinking and pondering what happened to them.

What motivated you to start blogging?

It started as a means to not going stir-crazy.  I am a stay at home mum who missed working.  I need to keep my mind active otherwise I go crazy thinking too much about anything and everything.  That’s when I decided to channel my thoughts into my newly discovered passion of organic and cruelty free skin care and from that my entire way of life.  But I ended up finding my passion in blogging and sharing my thought on Buddhism and an organic and cruelty free life!

What is your favorite book?

Shades of Twilight by Linda Howard.  I have read this book so many times that I wouldn’t even hazard a guess as to how many.  It’s a bit of a sappy romance/murder mystery novel that has a good storyline and a beautiful, damaged heroine who I immediately fell in love with.  I first read this when I was maybe 15 and have loved it ever since.

 

Now my Nominees for the Liebster Award are:

From Aroma to Zen

Skip The Bag

My Grateful Life

My Healthy Homemade Life

I love reading each and everyone of these blogs and found it very easy to nominate these lovely ladies!

  3. What is your favourite place in the entire world?
  4. If you could give 1 million dollars to a charity, which would it be and why?

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I am very flattered and so happy to have found your blog! It was so great to learn more about you. Off to write my post. Thanks again! ~Katy

    1. My pleasure! I am happy to have found your blog. I had heard a little bit about Zero Waste before but it wasn’t until I saw your blog that I understood what it meant. And I found that I wanted to incorporate it into my own life. So your blog is a big help to beginners like me! So thank you!!

  2. I love your answers! Congratulations on your award 🙂 I love these..I’ve known some bloggers to have gotten a bit upset and felt deceived that they were not “real” awards but I think they are totally sweet ways of showing appreciation to other bloggers who we admire. TV is a fantastic way to unwind after a grubber filled day (mine are grubbers not grubs haha..but it’s hilarious that we call them almost the same thing). Mr. Robot and American Horror Story are favorites of mine as well…I’m trying to think of something else because I love TV…Oh, Betty Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff. It’s not Breaking Bad, but it’s still good. I’ve heard American Gods and The Handmaid’s Tale are great, but I haven’t seen them yet..love the books though! Thank you for joining #OffFridays the Mental Illness Blog Share again and adding this post, I love it!

    1. Thank you! I am just happy that someone else likes my blog so I was over the moon to receive this award! I just started watching season 3 of Better Call Saul and I loved Breaking Bad. Sounds like we have a lot in common! hehe Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Congrats on the award! I love how these little “tags” are such a great way for bloggers to help showcase each other and appreciate what we all bring to this community, and it was really cool getting to read your answers. My first blog was when I was a stay home mom too, and it went a long way toward giving me what I needed in terms of purpose and social interaction. It’s amazing what the internet can do for us, isn’t it?

    1. Absolutely Brandi, my blog is a godsend for me! I love talking about my interests with other like minded bloggers and I love the sense of community that blogging brings. Getting nominated after only blogging for a couple of months was so encouraging. It doesn’t matter to me that it is a nomination by another blogger and doesn’t involve a shiny trophy. Just knowing that even just one person reads my posts and likes what I write then that is worth more than 10 shiny trophies! Thank you for the comment and stopping by!
