The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award was created to recognize and discover new (small) blogs and it's given by bloggers to bloggers. I was nominated from Amy by All about Amy. I totally recommend you to check her blog out! Thank you so much for nominating me, Amy! So, Amy asked me 11 questions I'm going to answer in this post and at the end of this post, I'm going to nominate a few bloggers who have to do the same thing. Without further ado, let's get started!

Why did you start blogging?

I used to have a blog back in 2014 and it was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had so far. I got such a nice feedback and I was doing pretty well, but for some reason, I quit. But now I’m back, yay! Writing and helping other people are two of my greatest passions, so that’s why I decided to start blogging - in hopes that it may help at least one of you. Also, for me, my blog is my (online) creative outlet where I share everything that has been helpful for me and that I’m interested in and I'm more than happy to share it all with you.

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

The people! I’ve never seen anything as supportive as our blogging community. You know, it makes me incredibly happy every time someone comments or likes my stuff. I’m so thankful to all of you for everything you’ve done for me. The other thing I like about blogging is that it lets me express my creativity and also improve my language skills (since I'm not a native English speaker).

What’s your favourite TV show?

I can’t choose only one. Right now I don’t have enough time to watch TV shows, but I’m hoping to get back on track in September. If I had to name some of my favorites, I’d say “Supergirl”, “The Flash”, “Silicon Valley”, “Black Mirror” and “Mr. Robot”. Most of them are tech-related, so if you're into IT/technology, I totally recommend you to check the last three ones out.

What’s your favourite food?

Oh no! Food is my number one weakness. I love creamy pastas. Also, junk food is something that drives me crazy every time. And cakes... and chocolate... I'm also a coffee addict. Ahhh, please give me everything! Although I have to mention that there are a few things I'd rather not eat - fish, most meats, turnip and olives.

What was the last book you read?

I'm quite ashamed to admit that I haven't read a book in ages. I guess the last one I read was probably some Harry Potter book since I'm a huge Potterhead.

What was the last film you saw in the cinema? And what did you think of it?

The last film I saw in the cinema was probably “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”. I think I saw it in May or something, so I can’t remember the plot very well, but I have always loved all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, so that one was no different. I've heard some people say that the movie is boring and too lame, but in my opinion, you can never go wrong with a movie that Johnny Depp stars in. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” was 9/10 in my opinion.

If you could go on holiday anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Ahh, the choices are endless. I’d love to go somewhere warm, somewhere near the beach. I could really use a beach vacation right now. Hawaii and Tenerife are the places I’d love to visit the most I guess. 

If you could go back in time and give yourself some advice, what would it be?

I’d tell myself to stress less. Care less about what other people think about you. Start working on your dreams. Worry less about your appearance and focus more on your inner side. Family and friends are so important, never forget that!

If you could have any an animal in the world as your pet, what would it be?

I have the cutest bunny ever and I wouldn’t want it any other way. More rabbits would be cool, haha! Bunnies are just the sweetest creatures alive. I used to have a dream that one day if I had enough money I’d buy a farm and then I’d gather all the bunnies from our local pet stores and had them live together happily on that farm (no more cages, yay!). I’m such a huge bunny lover!

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you bought?

Some food. Then I'd have a picnic with my family and later I'd plan how to spend the money I've won.

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time, I usually hang out with my friends/family, plan my blog content or surf around the Internet. I love learning new things and what could be a better way to do that than by using the power of the Internet. Just chilling and relaxing sounds like a great idea of spending my free time too!

I'm going to nominate:
Tasha from Tasha Hall
