Sunshine Blogger Award

Hi everyone! Last month the lovely Pamela over at Starring Pamela tagged me to do the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thinking back briefly over my four years of blogging, I don’t think I’ve done this one before which is exciting! Make sure you visit Pamela’s blog if you haven’t already and I hope you enjoy this post!


1. Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Pamela’s Questions:

1. What is your main goal of 2018?

To read 50 books in a year. I started in September 2017 and I’ve got until September 2018 to achieve it. I think it will be close but I might not hit 50.

2. Do you believe in any conspiracy theories?

No but I find some of them interesting.

3. What is your favorite organizational style?


4. Do you have any hidden talents?

I can sing. I did a talent quest at school and sang in front of strangers so it’s not just my mum who’s told me I’m good.

5. If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

England/The UK; until I have visited this answer won’t change!

6. What is one touristy thing in your hometown that you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t?

Relax in the hot pools. I live in a very geothermic city with geysers and lots of natural hot springs.

7. Do you have any surprising hobbies?

I like to watch ODI cricket when NZ play and it’s on free to air television.

8. Favorite type of socks?

Ankle socks.

9. Do you have one go-to handbag or change them up often?

I tend to stick with the same handbag unless I need a bigger one for a certain day or want my bag to match my outfit.

10. What is something you’re looking forward to this week?

Seeing my boyfriend, I look forward to that every week 😛

Natalie Bassingthwaighte  – Alive (at the time of writing this post).

    How awesome to live near geysers and hot springs. I love laying in hot springs😊 50 books is a great achievement. You still have a while to reach your goal but if you don’t then you’ve still done well. Xx

        19 books is amazing! I’ve read through 10, but most are from a series I stumbled upon through google playbooks! haha! what’s your favourite genre? I seem to get sucked into fantasy style stories, or ghost stories, or historical romances, lol…

        I soooo want to do London, I have a few friends who want to go so I keep trying to plan a group trip!

        My favourite genres are biographies and romance lol, so cliche! Fantasy and science fiction aren’t really my cup of tea.

        Hope you get to go to London soon!

    So great to read the answers to these questions!
    I’m so intrigued by conspiracy theories too. Some of them sound so plausible.
    As soon as I read #5 I knew your answer! 😆
    Have you ever done a “what’s in my handbag” post? I’d be interested to see…

      I’m that predictable, right?! 🇬🇧

      I haven’t done a what’s in my bag but years ago I shared the contents of my then handbag in a series another blogger ran. I’ll see if I can track the post down.
