Creative Blogger Award!

Hello fellow blogger friends! I'm very happy to say that I've recently been nominated for the Creative Blogger Award. So thank you to Giselle from Perks of Being a Reader.  I really enjoy these little awards because it's a great opportunity to discover different bloggers, which is always fun! 

Okay, so the rules are:
♥ Post a link to the person who nominated you and give thanks.
♥ Share 5 facts about yourself.
♥ Nominate 10 other blogs and give links.
♥ Contact your nominees to inform them of their nomination.
♥ Provide the rules to your nominees. 

I enjoy these types of posts as I am definitely someone who has a 'listed' writing style. And because of this I have done many listed posts, some of which are similar to this, as in they include facts about me so hopefully I don't repeat the same facts again.

1. I really enjoy reading! Though I don't talk about books the same way other readers do, as in a lot of readers make sure other people know how much they read (if that makes any sense). But I don't really tend to express my passion for things with people (reason I like to write about it on here sometimes). I'm currently reading My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult and if you would be interested in seeing a review soon let me know in the comments. :)

2. I love that I have a signature scent! I generally wear Victoria's Secret "Love Spell" body mist and it's amazing! I know it's the most popular one but it's not easily accessible where I live so it's not many people who have it. I don't know why but it's always a little bit fun when someone says "Someone smells really good." and then someone else says, "It's Sophie!" or "It smells like Sophie." But all in a good way. Or even if I wear a different one, people often say I smell really nice. I've even had people smelling my hair which is a bit weird sometimes haha. 

3. I may have said this before but I'm half Norwegian and half Swiss. I moved to Australia at 6 weeks old, then since then I've been moving all over the place, Switzerland, Singapore and different places within Australia too. Mum says I've lived in over 19 (I think) homes, of course I don't remember all of them. But to me it's normal to move often. Moving a lot has definitely affected me in both positive and negative ways. But I love moving still!

4. I have a great passion for photography! I first got interested in it after a trip to the Great Barrier Reef many years ago. I was very intrigued as I watched the photographer taking photos, and then afterwards she let me come into the little room on the boat to see the photos on the computer screen. A couple of years later mum taught me how to use a DSLR camera and took me out to the forest to take photos. My mum also has a great passion for photography so it was pretty fun to share this hobby with her. After doing lots of nature photography, mum wanted to do newborns. So we decided to open a business together photographing newborns. We started a bit slow but now the business is doing pretty well. Unfortunately I can no longer come to all the session as I have school. 

5. I love the Walt Disney Classics! My favourite story is Peter Pan. I love both the cartoon movies

and the 2003 action film with Jeremy Sumpter and Rachel Hurd-wood. The story is just something that's really captivated me since I was little. If you love Peter Pan tell me in the comments! :)

So those are my facts about me! I've listed 10 bloggers who I would like to nominate for this award.

Life and Lights
Beyond Blush
Lipstick and Biscuits 
Into the Woods Style
Dreaming & Wanderings
Heavenly Clutter
Feathers and Stripes
I Write About You
Julia's Fashion Minute

There you go! Thanks heaps for reading this post, and also thanks again for nominating me!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. Thank you for nominating me Sophie! I loved reading your answers x

    Gina xxx

  2. Plus I also replied to your comment on my blog! xx

    1. My pleasure! And yes I went over and read it :)

      Thank you! xx

  3. Okay first how did you get the heart shaped bullet points they're so cute!! Secondly I LOVE Disney! My favorite would either be Mulan (because she's badass) or Tangled (because it's so cute). Peter Pan is definitely one of my top ten. I love the live action one. My favorite quote from the book is "For to have faith is to have wings".

    I think you should totally do a review here, it's cool to add some new things. Plus you're an articulate person and I would love to hear your thoughts on the novel.

    Great answers and post :)

    1. Hi Giselle! Aha thank you, for the hearts I just copy and paste this "♥" whenever I want to use it :)
      And yes I have to agree I love that quote! And great I'd love to do a review!

      Thanks again!

  4. Congratulations on getting the award xx :)

  5. Congrats on the award! I love Peter Pan, too! Although I always found Peter, the character, annoying, the story never fails to enchant me. :) I also loved Alice in Wonderland, though. That's probably my all time favourite (followed by Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, and Snow White).

    I know what you mean about the books. Some bloggers try their best to show their readers that they love reading, and they show off all the books they buy and read, which isn't really necessary. I also love reading, but I'm sure that it's not the first thing one of my followers would associate with me.

    x Great post! I missed you (though I have myself to blame for not visiting your blog),


    1. Heyy Yasmine! It's been so long, I've missed you too! And yes I too have to blame myself for not being very active on blogger and not visiting friends hahah. And finally someone gets what I mean by the whole reading thing. Alice in Wonderland is fantastic I agree!

      Thanks so much for commenting! :D
