Blogging fun :: the Liebster Award

I love you Blogs and Coffee

If I had to pick one thing I love about blogging it’s the awesome community.

The people I have met and friends I have made wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for my blog, and for that I’m enormously grateful.

And in the spirit of this awesome community, I’m thrilled to have been nominated by the fabulous Mr + Mrs Romance for a Liebster Blogging award, which is all about promoting other people’s blogs and a chance to discover new ones along the way.

So get ready friends, because we’re going to have a bit of blogging fun today as they’ve given me 10 questions to answer and then I’ll be passing the baton onto another 10 bloggers.

Let’s go!

#1. Would you rather: be stuck in a prison cell for a year with someone who talked incessantly day and night or someone who said nothing but stared at you all the time – as in they’re sitting at the end of your bed when you wake up?

I’d definitely rather be stuck with someone who talked incessantly all day and night – at least I could zone out if it got too much!

#2. If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Haloumi cheese.  Can’t get enough of the stuff.

#3. What’s your greatest fear?

Having to go back to an office job (ha!). No, seriously, it would be not being able to live what I love and be stuck doing something that I wasn’t passionate about.

#4. When was the last time you had a good belly laugh?

On Monday: with my sister + her hubby and telling stories about my US trip – especially this one. Re-living all of the crazy fun we had meant belly laughs all ’round!

#5. What’s your earliest memory?

I have vivid memories of my sister and I being dressed in matching outfits – except my Mum would buy them in different colours! Needless to say I was not a fan of these matching outfits….

#6. How did your parents meet?

My Mum was working for my Dad as his secretary. He asked her out on a date + the rest is history!

#7. What’s your favourite meal to cook when you’ve got the place to yourself for the evening?

My cheesy eggs speciality – scrambled eggs mixed with shallots, fetta cheese and a dash of almond milk. I have it with oven roasted tomatoes + sliced avocado – so good.

#8. Have you ever broken a bone? If so, what happened?

Nope, never – touch wood! 

#9. Who did you have your first kiss with… and was it any good?

A charming boy I met at a school dance. I was 14. Was it any good? Well, given we were in the middle of a dance floor squished in with a bunch of other hot and sweaty teenagers it wasn’t amazing – but it was definitely memorable!

#10. What do you have planned for your retirement?

I don’t know if I will ever officially ‘retire’ – I can’t imagine stopping doing what I love. But I hope that the older and wiser I get, I continue to follow my heart and pursue things I’m passionate about. I do see a lot of travel to exotic places though. And beaches. Definitely beaches.

And now to pass the baton on to some other fab bloggers!

1. Serena @ Pretty Fluffy
2. Miranti @ Pen + Peplum
3. Lisa @ The Art of Joy
4. Amanda @ Kaleidoscope
5. Lisa @ Multiples of Two
6. Ingrid @ IngStyle
7. Vanisha @ A Life Unstyled
8. Cara Phillips
9. Sara @ Clover Dew

Here are the questions for you:

1. Imagine if you had a month to live: how would you spend it?
2. What song best describes you + your personality?
3. Chocolate, Strawberry or Vanilla?
4. What’s your dream holiday destination? 
5. Which song always gets you on the dance floor?
6. Which item of clothing (or pair of shoes) in your closet could you never part with?
7. Best high school memory?
8. Who would star as you in a movie about your life?
9. What super power do you secretly wish you had?
10. If you could go back in time and live in a different era, which would you choose + why?

    Love this Rach! I think I would have chosen the starer over the talker – freaky but at least you’d get some peace & quiet :)
    Looking forward to joining in the fun!
    Happy Weekend xx

    • Rachel // Nourish

      It was a toss up; tough choice really! Looking forward to seeing your responses :-) Have an awesome weekend xx

    Interesting answers to some unusual questions. I can’t imagine being stuck in a cell but I think maybe I’d choose the talker too.

    • Rachel // Nourish

      Ha, I know – definitely an interesting question and one I hope I will never have to actually make a choice on ;-) xx

  • Liz @ I Spy Plum Pie

    Excellent answers! They sure asked some curly questions (but I’m with you on the haloumi, yes please!)

  • Lisa Miller
