Sisterhood of the World Blog Award

Thank you SO much Hannah from Pull Yourself Together for this nomination. It's lovely that there are awards like this helping to share the love. I enjoy discovering new blogs, but often struggle to find them! It makes sense to have something like this set up. 

The rules:
- Link and thank the blogger that has nominated you
- Answer the 10 questions created for you
- Create 10 questions for your nominees
- Nominate 10 sister bloggers to receive the award

Now I will answer the questions Hannah has asked me:

1) What do you personally think is the best thing about blogging?
For me, it's to understand what people are like on a much more realistic level. Yes, some blogs can feel a bit fake and very commercial, and I have no problem with anyone trying to earn a living by running a blog. I lost interest in YouTubers when so many of them became partners, and for a lot of them the fundamental aspects of what I liked about their channels were gone. But for me, most bloggers say what they think and I like the honesty and integrity behind that. 

2) What one thing is guaranteed to make you cry?
Any stories about child abuse or if someone tells me off! I am a massive cry baby. Even when people give small kind gestures it can make me a bit tearful.

3) What would you say is your favourite restaurant?
Tricky question! I don't have one favourite, just any decent curry house, or a restaurant that can make good steaks and crème brûlée.

4) If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
I would go to the French Alps. I love hiking and skiing, and that combined with my passion to speak French means that the Alps is my favourite place abroad.

5) If you could only save three things from your house if it was on fire, what would they be?
MacBook Air for all my lecture notes, my make up bag and my RayBan sunglasses.

6) What is the one fashion trend that you won't be trying this SS15?
I don't really keep up with the trend forecasts anymore, but I am not a huge fan of fringing or anything UV-coloured. By all means, they can look great on many people, just not my personal choice.

7) What is your pet hate?
People who show their bad manners in public. You're not an athlete, why are you spitting on the ground?! I saw the my bus driver do that yesterday. Disgusting.

8) What is your favourite scent?
Most people know I am OBSESSED with fragrance. It is one of my many vices! The perfume I've worn most this year is Stella by Stella McCartney EDP.  I've worn Miss Dior by Christian Dior EDT for many years (it was called Miss Dior Chérie but now they've shortened the name). I always layer my perfumes with Escentric Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules. It claims to mimic your own pheromones and create a unique smell on each person. I'm considering buying Chloé's Love Story EDP for placement next year because it is very 'me' but in a much lighter floral version. As long as a perfume has rose notes in it then I'm sold.

9) What is the word/phrase that you use way too much?
Probably "Do you know what I mean?" or "If that makes sense". I do have a tendency to babble on for too long and I always worry if I'm boring people with all the nonsense I have to say!

10) Where do you see your blog in the future?
I hope that this blog sees me through medical school and my FY1/FY2 jobs. That way I will have documented the whole medical school journey, and hopefully people will enjoy reading it! I'm not bothered with how many people read it, I just hope that the few who do find it enjoyable. 

Now, I don't actually read 10 blogs, but I nominate Emily, a long time friend who has begun a new blog. 

The questions I'm asking are:
Greatest fear?
If you had one month to live, what would you do and why?
What's the best way to spend a Sunday?
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
What's the best sandwich filling?
Which country would you like to visit that you have never been to before?
Where do you see yourself in the future?
Best makeup brand you can get in the UK?
What one food could you eat for the rest of your life?
Best pre-drink beverage?

At the moment I am really enjoying seeing all my uni mates again, but am completely petrified of my exams. Fingers crossed.
