I’m so stunned and humbled that Ambra from Veganquake has nominated my blog for the Liebster Award – Discover New Blogs. Thank you so much, this is super encouraging and made my night!
These are the questions I have to answer along with 11 random facts about me!
1. When did you decide that you wanted to write a blog for the first time?
I’ve always wanted to be a part of the blogosphere since I began reading blogs a few years ago, but never took action until I started religiously reading a few of my favorites last year and got inspired.
2. What’s your favourite place to write?
On any rooftop or by any body of water.
3. Dog person or cat person?
Dog person all the way! I hate cats and cats hate me, it’s a win-win relationship.
4. Favourite book?
Oh wow, this is a toughie…I’d say it’s a 3 way tie between Running with Scissors, The Bell Jar, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
5. What is your favourite cuisine?
Thai food, any time of day, every day, always. I love Thai food.
6. Water or fire?
Water. I’m pretty sure I was a mermaid in my past life.
7. If you could travel anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?
8. The last time you had a gym membership? (I know, this is cheeky!)
Technically, I am a Planet Fitness member, but accidentally gave them the wrong credit card info and then moved last year so I now just ignore their calls…
9. Do you ever stick to cookbooks?
I love cookbooks! Although I rarely stick to them exactly, I get a lot of inspiration from them and love to just read them through.
10. Marmite: love or hate?
Not quite sure what it is but I’ve heard it’s quite gross. But, I’m up for trying anything (As long as it’s vegan of course hehe!)
11. Favorite quote & why?
“I would believe only in a God who could dance”…Not sure who said this, but I read it in a book a long time ago and it’s stuck with me for years. I just think it sums up life so well and encourages being spiritually connected to the universe but also being a free spirited wild child.
