So this post is really really different. But here we go….
I was looking through my stats and lovely fans when I came across Abidah (I think I’ve spelt it right, sorry if I haven’t). She was nominated for something called the Liebster Award, which probably like some of you right now, I was unsure of too. So I had a quick read and figured it is quite interesting and a great way to get to know other bloggers too!
As Abidah says herself ~ “I’ve come to the conclusion that this award is basically a way of welcoming new bloggers into the community.” I’d agree here. It’s a great way to get to know new bloggers a bit more and create a community we all are comfortable in. So far, since I started blogging, I’ve gained so much support from everyone and a lot of positive comments from other bloggers and non bloggers too! I’m so thankful to that, so thank you all for the support and positive comments and not making me feel “just one of those bloggers”.
Ok so, Abidah’s not nominated anyone specific here, but she nominated everyone, so I thought I’d give it a go! DO check out her blogs. They are extremely good. Some of them carry so much emotion and deep thoughts. She’s started blogging not long ago but I’ve got to say she’s worth a follow and do read all of her blogs ~~ Hijabi Online
The Rules: (As Abidah explains…)
If you have been nominated for the Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you;
- Thank the nominator.
- Display the award.
- Nominate 10 more bloggers with 10 new questions.
- Answer the questions provided by the Nominator
- Notify the Nominees
So to start off, Thank You Abidah for making me aware of such a thoughtful Award through your blog post.
If you could meet one person who would it be and why.
Mama’s grandmother. I’ve heard a lot about her through Mama and her sisters. Her personality and the way she was and everything. She’s definitely one person I would love to meet. I heard she was an amazing cook and could cook anything, even from scraps! She was one talented person; she could almost anything and I heard that she was extremely creative too. She’s taught Mama and her sisters many life skills and gave them many qualities that make them such wonderful people. And I’m glad to gain these too!
When did you start your blog?
I started my blog in November some time but wasn’t fully active till December time.
Who/what inspired you’re Blog.
I’ve always had an interest in Fashion and writing a blog was on my ‘What to do after GCSE’s list’ so I really couldn’t wait to do it. My blog isn’t just fashion though, it’s about loving yourself too and being positive about the way you feel about yourself no matter what. This I was taught to do since I was little by my ever so wonderful Mama!
Ezza is another one of my inspirations. She has a campaign, which she started called “Be Your Own Shade Of Beautiful” , which is what I have lived by from a young age, like I mentioned previously about loving myself. I am very much inspired by her. She’s amazing!
What is your favourite season?
Ermmm… Oooh that’s a hard one. Probably Autumn. The colours and shades of autumn are so warm and lovely. It’s my favourite season to dress up too. The furs and burgundies. Love it!
What would you like to be remembered for?
I’d love to be remembered for me, for what I am and not for something I’m not. Nothing fake because that’s not what I am and ever will be. I want to be remembered for my personality and my humour (apparently!).
If you had to choose between love and money what would you choose and why?
Love. Money can’t buy happiness; it’s a quote everyone knows and which some believe and do not believe. Sure money can make one happy but love means so much more. We can all remember those days when we walked out with 50p on a hot, summers day with our friends and had the best time ever! And we can all relate to them days where we’ve gone out shopping and wish we could have more and more. The love and bond between good friends and family is always the best happiness. And money can never be enough to make one happy.
If you were able to time travel would you go to the past or the future and why?
Ermmm. Again a difficult choice to make. I would love to go into the past and amend some mistakes and change the way I may have handled a situation. I would also love to go into the future and see what I’m yet to expect. But everything happens for a reason and let’s leave the future to take as a surprise!
If you had one wish what would it be?
Right now… I wish someone would buy me tons of good chocolate. Ooh and a jar of infinity Nutella please!
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Either Abidah is really good at this questioning game or I’m really failing at making decisions. If anywhere in the world then…. By the beach or in Florence. Somewhere peaceful with good weather maybe. This crappy British weather and exam prep is too much and I’m more of a chill person than dull and depressed like the weather here.
Who’s your favourite author?
I’ve never had a favourite author. I used to like Michael Murpurgo and his book Kensuke’s Kingdom. That was a good book. I read this first in Year Six and still read it until date. That’s probably 50 times already! #ExaggerationGameStrong! Roald Dahl books are always a good read too. His take on poems are really good too!
That’s the end! Abidah, thank you for these questions; they were really good.
