Sunshine Award...

So, I have recently been nominated by Amber from Forever Amber for the Sunshine Award. I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank not only Amber but all those who follow my blog via GFC or Bloglovin'. To think that people actually like reading my blog means a lot so thank you all so much! I have previously been nominated for the Liebster Award so feel free to read that here. Lets get on with it then!

The Rules are as follows:

- Post 11 random facts about yourself
- Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you
- Nominate 11 wonderful bloggers
- Write 11 questions for them
- Also let the bloggers know you nominated them

1. I've just applied to university (SCARY!) and hope to study medicine. Fingers crossed, I hear back from them soon!
2. I've recently been addicted to snapchat after getting my new phone :/
3. I've had braces in the past
4. I love painting my nails!
5. I want to travel the world more, including Germany, New Zealand, Japan and Dubai!
6. My favourite meal of the day is breakfast!
7. I have an older brother (23 years old) and sister (20 years old)
8.I don't really have a best friend, but a group of good friends
9. I go to an all girls school 
10. I'm a summer baby, but prefer winter, mainly due to the comfy clothing, knitwear and Christmas!!
11. I overuse exclamation marks (I had to really try hard not to put an exclamation mark at the end of this sentence). 

Questions from Amber...
1. What's your favourite blog?
Can I pick two?? The Life of Bon and Sprinkle of Glitter
2. Do you have pets?
err nope. I used to be one of those sad kids who would make up pets in school just to sound remotely interesting!
3. What is the best post you've ever read/most enjoyed?
I don't really have a favourite blog post, I mean I often find more and more blogs with blog posts that I enjoy reading that I couldn't really pick a favourite.
4. Do you make videos?/Do you want to make videos?
No I don't make videos, and although it is something I have thought about before, I just know it's something that I'm unlikely to do. Its mainly because I have all these questions running through my head like 'What will I vlog about?' 'Who will even watch my videos?' 'Am I really confident enough to put myself out there like that??'
5. Why do you blog?
I blog because it makes me feel happy. It allows me to express what I truly think without the feeling that I'm always judged. I like that I can connect and read about people from all over the world who I'll probably never meet but can really relate to.
6. What's your 'blogging goal'?
It normally varies from post to post but my main goal is to allow people to gain the confidence/ inspiration  they may need to do whatever they want.
7. If the sky's the limit, what would you do next?
I would travel the world!!
8. What do you do in your spare time?
Listen to music, watch tv (e.g. Arrow, Glee, Modern Family, New Girl, The Big Bang Theory, Revolution and I've recently started Breaking bad!)
9. What's your favourite quote, if you have one?
ooh there are too many to choose from, especially as I include so many quotes throughout my blog too! At the moment, a favourite is: Be Confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren't. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses and it is only when you accept everything you are- and aren't- that you will truly succeed.
10. If you only had time to save one thing in your home, what would it be? (your family and pets etc. are safe)
My folder of all my achievements/ certificates from when I was a child. I don't even know why, but I'm proud of it and probably my hard-drive with all the family photos on it .
11. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Probably New York, seems like such an amazing place to be.

My Nominations...
I've decided not to nominate 11 people, but to nominate those blogs that I have come across and enjoyed reading, they are:
