blogging awards

sunshine blogger award (5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10) ☼

Hello my loves,

We’re going old school.

Back when I first started this blog I used to post 3 times a week, usually on a Monday, Thursday and Saturday, and then around 5 / 6 months ago (maybe less I can’t remember I’m getting old) I took it down to 2 posts a week and just posted on a Monday and Thursday instead.


I have a fat ton of blogging awards I need to post that are literally almost 2 years old. I used to post them whenever I’d receive them but then I ended up receiving so many that I couldn’t keep up with them, got overwhelmed because I felt like all I’d ever be posting would be blogging awards and so I stopped posting them altogether and now they’re just sitting miserably in drafts waiting for me to look at them again. I’ve felt awful ever since. People were kind enough to nominate me and then I got overwhelmed because of how many I was getting and so I stopped posting them altogether and now I need to…rectify the situation.

I’m saying this so you all know how incapable I am of keeping up with anything. Period. I need to get the guilt off my chest. I even have a section of my blog dedicated to blogging awards and it hasn’t been touched since March 2018 which was the last time I posted one. I’m going to hell.

Anyway, back to the point – after today I’m hopefully going to start posting blogging awards every Saturday so I can get through them all and finally complete them, and once I’ve done that and gotten through them all I’ll go back to my regular posting schedule of twice a week on Monday and Thursdays.

Do you care? Is it that big of a deal? No. But as we all know, I have anxiety, Karen. This is how my brain works.

Anyway, here’s my Sunshine Blogger Awards numbers 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10 – there was originally 14 here but the links are so old half of them don’t work anymore !! That’s literally how old these posts are. I’m sorry.

  2. Under Rebecca’s questions, were you referring to me? I just noticed that the questions are the same as the ones I asked. My name is Hilary.

    To clarify, my daughter is named Rebecca but she’s a toddler and not quite old enough to blog yet. 😂🤣

      1. Thank you for changing it 🙂 I figured that’s what happened since I mention her quite often on the blog. You tackled a lot of Sunshine Blogger Awards in one post, and idk how you managed all of that. Have a great day! 😊💕

        1. It’s because I had a catch up on your blog after I’d read your post, so I was reading about Rebecca and then when I went back to edit my post I must have subconsciously put her name in hahaha. Amazing if she did actually have the ability to blog though !! 💞

    1. I read it when I was 17 and it’s basically messed me up ever since haha, I’ve never been able to get over it. I could talk about that book all day, it was like my soul was bared on every page, I’ll never be able to describe it. I’m so glad you love and appreciate it too 💙💙

  4. I don’t even remember writing the original post lol! I have a few questions regarding your answers to my questions: how do you not eat fake meat?! Like what do you eat instead?! Why Australia? And how have you not seen Harry Potter yet?!?! I demand you at least do a Buzzfeed Quiz so I know what house you are. xx

    1. Hahaha it’s so old right !! I’m highly embarrassed. I don’t eat fake meat cause I hate the taste & texture of meat in general so, because fake meat still tastes & feels like meat I hate that too! Australia because it’s always been my dream, I’ve no idea why, I just feel like I’d really find myself there, and Harry Potter…I don’t know. I’ve never really been interested in it?! I just feel like it doesn’t really appeal to me, shock horror I know. I just took a Buzzfeed quiz and had no idea what half the questions were talking about but apparently I’m most likely Ravenclaw…which I do know is one of the less famous ones haha. Makes sense xx

      1. That is a valid point. I went vegetarian more for the environmental and health benefits so I do not mind eating ‘meat’ but thinking about what I eat on a weekly basis: burgers, pasta bakes, curries, chillies – do you just eat beans to substitute meat then? No judgement, just curious!
        Re-watching the Harry Potter movies, I do not like them as much as I did when I was a kid, probably because I grew up with them so they are more nostalgic so I can see how someone might not enjoy them.
        Ravenclaw is an interesting one, they tend to be the clever people!!! I am a Hufflepuff along with the majority of people, I think it is the category everyone goes into who is not brave, clever or evil!!! xx

        1. It was kind of a no brainer for me because I love animals and never want to be responsible for killing them and more terribly, eating them, and I hate the taste of meat anyway so it was the easiest decision in the world for me to make and I’m so happy and proud to be veggie! The only meat I used to eat before would be chicken sometimes so none of my meals ever included meat to begin with really, so when I went veggie I never had to substitute anything because it was never there in the first place ?? if that makes sense. If I eat a burger it’ll be a vegetable burger, pasta bake I’d just have pasta and cheese like, a normal pasta bake with no meat, I don’t eat curry and things like that but I guess a similar thing would be spaghetti or something? In which case I’d just have spaghetti and the sauce but with no mince in it. Because I don’t like meat I don’t ever need to substitute anything because I don’t want it there in the first place hahaha, so rather than substituting I just remove the non-vegetarian parts.

          Hufflepuff always sounds so cute though !! I think I’d rather be one of those haha .xx
