Liebster Award!

My little blog has won the Liebster Award! 🙂 Steph & Penny’s first award! Awwww – you guys! ❤


“To inspire and be inspired” – this is what its ALL about. To some extent this is why we all blog, right? I absolutely love putting my posts and recipes out there with the hope of inspiring other people……likewise, on a daily basis I am completely overwhelmed by the amount of inspiration I get from my fellow bloggers! You guys constantly out-do yourselves! 🙂

I am very excited to be receiving this lovely little award and want to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to the lovely Katie at Finally Getting Together for nominating me for this award! Katie’s posts usually consist of delicious recipes passed down from family and friends. She very much believes in the tradition of family dinners and this is obvious throughout her posts and recipes.

The Liebster Awards are shrouded in mystery somewhat as most are unsure where it really originates from….the word ‘Liebster’ means ‘dearest/sweetheart/beloved’ in german which is very lovely (and kinda romantic) but mainly the Liebster Awards are to help up and coming bloggers gain the recognition their blogs deserve! Its an excellent way to connect people and pretty much share the love! ❤

My photography can sometimes be pretty shady and my posts can often be a week apart but I love that people are interested and still take the time to stop by. Thank you 🙂


Here are the Liebster Award nomination rules:

1) You must link back to the person who nominated you.

My boyfriend’s chorizo chilli con carne! It’s incredible! I actually crave it, all the time…!

2. What is your dream job? And if you are lucky enough to already be doing it, what is it?

I would love to have a job that involves animals & conservation – Marine biology and mammalogy appeal big time.

3. What is your favorite song?

The Undertones – Teenage Kicks. Always always makes me happy!

Jimmy Eat World – Praise Chorus is pretty important to me as well. Jimmy are ‘our’ band 🙂

7. What is the most important quality you look for (or looked for) in a mate?

Hair (those of you who have met Dave will understand! Ha :)) but seriously, integrity. A sense of humour is obviously very important but I can learn to laugh at his jokes 😉

8. What award would you have been given in your high school year book? (for example: most likely to succeed)

Absolutely no idea! Any suggestions?!

9. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Rudeness. If I’m holding the door open for you say ‘thank you!’

10. If your significant other gave you a hall pass who would you use it on? If you do not have a significant other who is your dream man or woman?

Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Every time. That man……… 😉
