Bloggers Recognition Award

Maybe a month ago I got nominated to do this award from the lovely Sheila of A Girl’s Path to Happiness ! Thank you so much for nominating me I really enjoy doing these kinds of posts and I am deeply sorry that I didn’t do it sooner!


The Blogger Recognition Award was founded by Eve Estells, Edge of the Night author. This lady created this award so that she could help bloggers connect with each other and help each other. Here are the rules:

Blogger Recognition Award Rules

  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
  • Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you’ve nominated in the post.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.
  • Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing! (It happens LOL).

(All the rules were copied from the original post!)

First lets quickly say something about this blog.
I talked a lot about why I started this blog! It was a mixture of wanting to learn how to express myself and gain confidence in my writing, also having a therapeutic “place” where I can also create something and maybe (hopefully) help other people.
More about this you can find in some of my old posts:
I write because, Who I am and Why am I here, All about me! 

How appropriate, I also did a post What I learned about blogging for my one year anniversary here on WordPress!

Now my nominations:
The Tezzy Files
Rosy Vogue Blog
The May 13th
Infinite Daydreamer
John Chon
Bittersweet Sensations
Iridescent Sprits

(This is it, I know that it should be 15 people but I am lazy, cut me some slack)

The Sunshine Blogger’s Award

Thank you to the lovely mrsjackieo and beanzbeblogging for nominating me! I appreciate is so much.


The rules for the award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you. 
  2. Answer the questions from your nominators.
  3. Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.

Since I already thanked the people who have nominated me (you should probably go and check their blogs out as soon as you finish reading this post), now we are going to answer  questions:

  1. What is your favorite dessert? Cheesecake without a doubt!
  2. What feeds your mind? Music, writing, dancing and photography! Oh, look at that artistic little soul. 😉
  3. Picasso or Monet? I am a Monet kind of girl, actually he is one of my favourite painters and I have a poster of one of his painting that I need to frame and put on my wall ASAP. TMI?
  4. You only have 2 choices of where to live: hi-rise apartment or country bungalow? Hi-rise apartment.
  5. Why? Well, I like the feeling of a city and the general flow in big cities.
  6. You want to entertain friends. Are you cooking or going to a restaurant? Going to a restaurant, I don’t really know how to cook much, but I do like to bake, still going to the restaurant, it is safer!
  7. What makes you smile? Soft cardigans, good written songs and essays, food that I love, people whom I love.
  8. What makes your heart-break? Injustice, inequality.
  9. Do you still own vinyl record albums? No, but I was thinking about getting a record player!
  10. Paperback or hardcover? Or e-book? It depends, sometimes it is nicer to have a hardcover because the book doesn’t change whilst you read, but if you are going to bring a book somewhere it is good to have a paperback because they are usually smaller and more compact and of course lighter.
  11. And finally, who is the sunshine in your life? Don’t answer here-go tell them, not us!

  1. What inspired you to start your blog? I thought that I could better use my free time and really get everything out my system when I need it.
  2. 3 people who have inspired you the most and in what way? My grandmother as a strong woman who has been through and survived a lot. When it comes to other people usually it changes every now and then.
  3. 5 books that have provoked you to think and held your thoughts for a while? Really hard questions in this Q&A session. Ariana Franklin’s Mistress of the Art of Death, Jostein Gaarder Sofie’s World (even though I haven’t read it all yet), Croatian edition of 100 poets of the world edited by Anun Šoljan (1971), Zagrebačka priča (not translated to any language except Croatian) by Blanka Dovjak – Matković and Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
  4. One quote that could describe you? I hate being told what to do! Especially by myself!  ― Lynn Flewelling
  5. What is ART according to you? To me art is everything with what you express yourself, so that includes fashion and makeup.
  6. 3 things that you cannot live without? Music, chocolate and cold vanilla nescafe.
  7. 3 morals and values that you will not change for anything or anyone in the world ? Be truthful without hurting others, communication is the most important thing in any kind of relationship so express and read emotions, try to understand something even if it makes no sense at this moment.
  8. The heart or the mind & Why? Mind, it has got me so far so I would say it works? The best thing would be if both of them would be in coalition.
  9. Love or Lust & Why? In depends, both positive and both great. Sometimes one works better and it is more expressed than other, but also coalition would be ideal.
  10. If your life was a movie, the movie would be entitled ……………… ? I think I already answered this question before. Let me check! …… Oh, I was asked to what would my autobiography be named and the answer was (Un)fortunate series of events. I really think that would be an amazing name for the both, so I am reserving it! 😉
  11. A line that you feel could be inspiring to anyone who reads it?
    “You can’t force love, I realized. It’s there or it isn’t. If it’s not there, you’ve got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you’ve got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”
    Richelle Mead, Frostbite

Fourth day of Photography 101

Coffee break in Split, Croatia

This picture to me represents all those little things that make us happier. It was taken on a day when I went shopping with my friend and this was our coffee break drink. Isn’t it funny how something as simple as a coffee can represent something as important as a great day?

  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with 200 or fewer followers and link to them.

  3. Answer their questions and come up with 10 new ones for your nominees
  4. Nominate 8 blogs, let them know you’ve nominated them and link them in your post
  5. No tag-backs

Since I have already thanked those two lovelies that nominated me, now I am going to answer their questions.
From Little Snowflake:

  1. What is the biggest achievement in your life?
    I have passed the Cambridge PET test with distinction (and I was on a list with 5 other people who were best in my country) while I was still in elementary school and that gave me a little bit more confidence about my English skills and it kind of led me to having this blog.
  2. What is the place you have always wanted to visit?
    Egypt, Italy, New York and New Zealand.
  3. If given a chance to be someone else, who would you want to be (fictional/non fictional)?
    I wouldn’t want to choose to be someone else in a sense that I would be like someone who already exists. I would rather choose to change some things about myself like to be braver, calmer, anxiety and depression free etc.
  4. What part of your body would you like to change?
    My thighs and my teeth.
  5. If you were immortal, what do you imagine yourself to be/what would you be doing?
    I would travel the world since you cannot really stay at one place for too long and because I love travelling.
  6. What else do you enjoy besides your (usual) hobby?
    Besides blogging and writing I enjoy singing (whether is it any good I wouldn’t know), dancing (I danced ballet when I was younger than I danced hip-hop for about 5 years), reading and sometimes drawing.
  7. If you knew the purpose of your life, would you rather pick another path (choice will be provided), or continue the same one?
    It depends what would be the purpose, I guess.
  8. Would you prefer Diving under the sea or Space travel? And why?
    Space travel since diving under the sea seems like it would consist of a lot more complications (I don’t know why).
  9. Who would be your favorite author and why?
    I haven’t found that one person who would represent my favourite author so, I don’t quite know how to answer this.
  10. What is your favorite quote?
    It changes a lot but at the moment it’s Sometimes before it gets better/The darkness gets bigger and I did an song lyrics inspiration post about it (self-promotion much)
  11. What is your favourite song?
    Also it changes but at the moment it is Lay Me Down by the amazing Sam Smith.

From Tezzy Files:

  1. What is your biggest blogging inspiration?
    I find my blogging inspiration everywhere. Sometimes it’s from YouTube, sometimes from Tumblr and sometimes I am inspired by something that happened to me or by new pair of clothing or makeup I just got.
  2. What is your best kept beauty secret?
    Always put your perfume on your hair and it’s always good to take care of yourself because you never know who can you meet and where can you meet someone. Both are from my mother dear.
  3. Describe your personal style in 5 words.
    Simple, mostly black and grey. (I also did a post about My Style, a while ago)
  4. If you had all the money in the world, what would you be doing?
    I would enroll into any college because I wouldn’t have to worry about paying it, I would donate something to a charity and I would buy something for my mother and grandmother.
  5. List three things you’d want to have on you if you were stranded on a deserted island.
    My phone, flashlight and batteries. (Those are the first few things I could think of)
  6. Who is the one person you’d want with you on that island?
    My best friend.
  7. Name a celebrity you aspire to be.
    This is such a hard question. I honestly don’t know.
  8. The genie in the lamp grants you three wishes. What will they be?
    Of course to get unlimited amount of wishes (if that is possible), I would like to remember some memories and I would like to be happy.
  9. What is your fondest childhood memory?
    Probably family gatherings for Christmas or something like that.
  10. Name a food dish that takes you back to your childhood.
    Mash potato because I used to love it, but now I am trying everything to avoid it.
  11. What is your biggest food craving as an adult?
    I don’t know if I am considered an adult with 16 years, but I would say some pasta or chicken.

From Betty’s Boutique:

  1.  What is your favourite object?
    My phone is something I always need by my side, but I would necessarily call it my favourite object.
  2.  What do you love most about your job?
    Again I’m 16 so I don’t really have a job, although I do work summers selling ice cream and bartending a bit, and my favourite part about that job is ice cream.
  3.  Do you have a lucky number and why?
    I love number 5 and I consider it lucky for no particular reason.
  4.  What is your favourite food?
  5.  Do you have a party trick and if so what is it?
    I dance and sing, I guess.

    Student with a blog, who work summers selling ice cream. (Crazy)
  9.  Where are you from?

    Favourite TV show is hard to pick so I’ll mention a few; Bones, How To Get Away With Murder, Eye Candy etc.
    My all time favourite movie is The Da Vinci Code.

Just to clarify I will be using the second version of the rules because it’s easier, but you can do which ever you want.
