A little while back I was nominated by Amanda from Dreams and Cynicism for the Sunshine Blogger Award. The reason it’s taken so long for me to post this is that I wanted to wait because I hadn’t long done the Mystery Blogger Award. After writing this post (but not posting it), I was nominated again for this award, this time by Oddball Content. I didn’t really want to do 2 posts so I’ve decided to answer Amanda’s questions just because I was nominated by her first.
Rules For The Sunshine Blogger Award
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog;
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you;
- Nominate 11 bloggers to receive this award and ask them 11 new questions; and
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your site.
Why did you choose your blog name?
I chose Em’s World as my blog name because my name is Emma but I’ve always preferred to be called Em and I blog about the things I like and what goes on in my world. It’s that simple!
Who is your favourite musical artist/band?
I have a few! I love Idina Menzel, Collabro and Ariana Grande. I mostly just listen to Disney songs and show tunes though!
What is your favourite place you’ve visited?
That’s a tough one, I’ve been to so many places! I adore Verona, that might be my favourite. It had been on my list for years and I got to go in 2017 and it was probably the most beautiful city I’ve ever been to!
What are your goals for 2018?
I have a few goals for 2018! I’ve written a post about my blogging goals (read it here) but personally one of my goals is to get a job. I graduated from uni last year and since then it’s been brutal trying to get a job!
What is your dream job?
Is it normal to have lots of dream jobs? There are a couple that could possibly be realistic like be a top event planner for celebrities and there are some bonkers ones like be a producer or a casting person for Strictly Come Dancing!
How do you stay positive?
I’m quite a negative person, I don’t really know why but I’m trying to be more positive especially with my struggles with finding a job. Whenever I have an interview and I don’t get the job (it’s happened quite a bit) I just think it’s because there’s something better waiting for me.
Do you have an evening routine? If yes, what is it?
Sort of, I’ve recently started to try and take better care of my skin so after I’ve brushed my teeth I use a face scrub/exfoliator thing then I moisturise my face, put Blistex on my lips because they’re super cracked this time of year then finally, I use hand and nail cream.
What’s your go-to drink on a cold day?
I don’t really have a go-to drink, if I’m in the mood (which isn’t very often) I’ll have a hot chocolate but I don’t really like hot drinks. Recently, I’ve been drinking a litre of lemon water and I’m loving it. It’s a challenge I’ve set for this month and I’ll probably continue it because it’s been really good for my skin.
What’s your earliest memory?
When I was about 2/3 and we were going on holiday and my brother who used to be allergic to eggs had some while we were travelling because nobody knew about the allergy (he was only a few months old). He was really fussy afterwards and nobody knew why. When we arrived at the place we were staying my mam went to change him and found he had come out in a rash so she, my dad and grandpa took him to the hospital. This is the bit I remember (only vaguely) when they took him my gran and I stayed in the house/hotel whatever it was and unpacked.
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I love that I’ve made a few friends through blogging. The blogging community is mostly super nice and supportive but I’m trying to make it a bit of a more supportive place through my Blogger Love showcase (read about it here). I also really like that I have a little space all to myself for my ramblings.
What do you like most about where you live?
I don’t’ really like where I live! I live in the middle of nowhere, there isn’t that much about.
