The Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you, Meher at for nominating me for this lovely Sunshine blogger award! Meyer has such a wonderful blog so I recommend you go follow her.


  • Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.


1.What’s the one thing you like about this blogging community?

The one thing I like is that everyone is always very welcoming and supportive of their fellow writers!

2.How would you describe your blog in just one sentence?

A spoken word diary of my life (love) experiences.

3.Does your blog specifically aim at something? If yes then, what?

Mainly poetry, poetical dialogue and spoken word contemporary poetry. I like to document experiences through words whether that be in my love life or an experience travelling or whilst immersed in nature. Mainly lots of poetry about relationships though! I am working on a collection of poetry titled, This Wild Rose: The Lovers & Leavers.

4.What’s your favourite junk meal?

Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

5.Do you read? If yes, what’s the last book you read?

Yes, I adore reading! I have done two English literature degrees so reading is a big part of my life. The last book I read was Woman’s Hour by Jenni Murray and Sad Girls by Lang Leav.

6.According to you, what can we (as common citizens) do to make this world a better place to live in?

To stand up for good and voice against the people who spread hate: racism, sexism, etc. The world still has a long way to go, but we should always choose love and positivity.

7.How would you define the word ‘peace’ (in your own words)?

Peace is having the freedom and human rights to obtain that peace within yourself which allows you to be the best human being you can be.

8.Do you think it is important to have a purpose in life or do you think there cannot be a specific purpose to life at all?

I think it is a gift to be alive and that we create our own purpose. I also think people should not fret about what their purpose is and should instead focus on what makes them happy and filling their life with love and light. For me, that is enough.

9.Who inspires you the most?

The amazing female role models in the world. For me, feminists such as Emma Watson and the suffragettes who paved the way for votes for women in the UK. I am a major self proclaimed feminist!

10.When in dire situations, what/who keeps you going? My brilliant family, my gorgeous friends and all my bookshelves and bookcases filled with books. I also find writing very therapeutic and a good way to process difficult situations or emotions.

11.What improvisations would you like to make in your blog (if any)?

I’m still working on having a photography page on my blog and more poetry content! I would love to post a poem or two a day. I haven’t posted for a while!

  1. Congratulations on your award, and thank you for the nomination. I am however going to have to decline, for reasons laid out here:
    Mainly just me being cynical and miserable, which appropriately conflicts with the sunshine part of the award name.

    I do have one little suggestion though; link to actual posts on your nominees’ pages, not there homepages or feeds. That way they should get a notification for the ping back, which they won’t get currently. Otherwise they might miss it.

    Oh, and definitely post more 👍
    You make words do that thing where I can actually read them.
