Real Neat Blog Award

Sunday, 17 June 2018

I love being nominated for these blog awards - the posts are really fun to write, plus they give you all a little insight into the person behind the blog!

I was nominated for the Real Neat Blog Award by the lovely Holly, I've actually not heard of it before now but I was still thrilled to be nominated!

Here are the rules of the award:
1. Put the award label on your blog.
2. Answer the 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
3. Thank the people who nominated you and link to their blogs.
4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, include links to their blogs.
5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog or twitter etc)


Here are my questions!

1. What made you start blogging?
I started blogging while I was at uni - I was studying Journalism and I'd been toying with the idea of starting a blog for ages. I went to my friend Fii's house for our usual cup of green tea and catch up, and I knew she blogged and asked for her help because I just didn't know where to start. She helped me to get everything set up that I needed, choose my inital blog theme and even took some first photos for me. And I fell in love with it almost instantly!

2. What's the most difficult thing you've ever had to do/overcome?
This is a difficult one... I think it's something which I don't wish to talk about on my blog, at least for the time being. It was only recent and the pain is still pretty raw on that one. A close second though, was sitting in front of my dad after four years. It didn't have the outcome I'd hoped for, and it took a hell of a lot of guts for me to even get there, but I was so glad I did it.

3. What's your favourite blog post you've done and why?
My favourite post is called Heartbreak, which I wrote just after my last relationship ended. I found it so therapeutic to write, and when I read it back just before posting, I couldn't believe those words had come out of me. It sounded so raw and real but also one of the most well-written posts I've ever done. I'm really proud of that one.

4. When was the last time you laughed uncontrollably? What happened?
Friday afternoon. Everyone in my office had got a little bit of the Fri-YAY hysteria and all of a sudden one of the lads turns round and says 'can you guys floss?' I thought he meant flossing my teeth at first, then I remembered it's that dance that all the cool kids are doing these days. He stood up and attempted it, but it looked more like a thrusting dad dance. In the end, we all had to get up and have a go at it, but we were all rubbish, and all in absolute stitches with tears rolling down our faces at the end.

5. Do you have a guilty pleasure? What is it?
I have guilty pleasures that aren't all that guilty, to be honest! Made in Chelsea, Love Island, Michael Buble, Little Mix, the list goes on!

6. What is your favourite memory from 2018 so far?
Sitting in Sheffield's Peace Gardens in the sunshine last month. It was beautiful weather, I had an iced tea in hand, and I was home. 

7. Do your friends and family read your blog?
Some do, I think. My best friend is my biggest fan, my sister reads it when she remembers, whether anyone else does I'm not really sure!

I'd like to nominate anyone who would like to do it! 

Love,
Sian xo
