The Sunshine Blogger Award: Take 3


Hey guys, it’s Lois, I was tagged by Jo-Ann @ Inspirationpie in the Sunshine Blogger Award. This is take 3 on the Sunshine Blogger Award for me but I am so happy to do this tag again as the questions always change. Thank you so much to Jo-Ann for tagging me in this! Be sure to check out her blog, she has so many amazing posts!

Jo-Ann’s Questions:

1) Is there something you can tell readers about yourself and your blog?

Something about me: I am turning 20 in just short of a month and I cannot believe I won’t be a teenager anymore. I am still trying to work out what to do on my birthday weekend this year, I don’t know whether I want to stay at home or have a weekend away.

Something about the blog: Technically I am not the only one who posts on this blog. My boyfriend David occasionally joins in on posts and writes reviews. He hasn’t done in a while due to being so busy and not reading as much as usual.

2) What is something you’d like to improve on this year?

I would love to improve on my consistency with writing and posting blog posts. At the minute I write a few and then have a huge break in between. I want to get into the schedule of writing all the posts for the following week on a Sunday. Which in turn means I will be able to post everyday. I will be a lot happier with the blog if this actually happens.

3) Name one of your obssesions

giphy (5).gifRick and Morty! I adore this TV show. It is hilarious and I could watch it over and over again. Me and David always watch the new episodes together and we can quote a lot of the show. If you haven’t given the show a go yet I really recommend giving it a watch. Don’t feel put off by the fact it is a cartoon, I was at first but couldn’t have been more wrong in judging a TV show.

4) What is one of your favourite blog posts to write?

I would probably have to say Top 10 Tuesday. I’m saying this because recently when it went on a hiatus I really missed writing the lists. There are always different topics each week when it comes to Top 10 Tuesday. I also love writing reviews and random little blog posts.

5) Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Well five years from today I will be 24. So, by the age of 24 I hope to be in a job where I am earning enough to live with. I want the job to be in (fingers crossed) digital marketing or graphic design. Hopefully I will be closer to working in publishing as a digital marketer or graphic designer. Finally, I hope that me and David are living in our own home.


6) What are your favourite books this year? 

I will name my top 3 books of 2017:

  • Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han
  • Super Awkward by Beth Garrod
  • The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

7) It’s the perfect evening. What are you doing to relax?

I am sat on the couch wrapped in a blanket, snuggled up to David. The TV is on in the background and I am reading a book. I can’t forget a bag of freshly popped buttery popcorn right next to me.


8) Do you have any pets?

I do! I have 2 dogs. One is mine and the other is David’s but I still call her my pet. My dog is called Maggie and she is a West Highland Terrier. David’s dog is a Black Labrador called Bella. I also have 5 fish. 4 of which are Goldfish called Blue 2, Chilli, Sushi and Venom, the last is a catfish called Nagini.

9) If you could choose any career, what would it be?

I would love to be a Graphic Designer. Specifically I would like to be a Graphic Designer who designs the book covers for young adult books. I would love to have that as a job to go to everyday. Also, seeing a book on a shelf in a bookstore with a cover I designed would be beyond incredible.

10) What’s the first thing when you go on your computer/tablet?

At the moment I check YouTube first. I like knowing if I have any new videos to watch in my subscription feed. Most of the time when I am on my computer I have a YouTube video on in the background whilst I am doing other things such as writing blog posts.

11) What author would you like to have lunch with?

I would love to have lunch with Beth Garrod, Simon James Green and Stephanie Kate Strohm. I recently got to interview these 3 authors and they were all fabulous. So, if I had the chance I would definitely have lunch with these 3 authors.
