15 Day Blog Challenge!

So it’s been a little while since I last blogged and the last post I had was an opinion based poll to find out which posts are most interesting to all you lovely followers and also which subjects I should post more often on! I thought that I would make a little 15 day blog challenge for my blog because I prefer to make my own and I quite enjoy being creative with it anyway. The main reason I did only 15 days is down to the fact that when I made my 30 day photo challenge I found it immensely hard to post everyday on time and dropped behind now and then cause I just got busy with coursework etc. So I am hoping this one will go better! 🙂 (Fingers crossed!)

You can join in or use this photo for your own blog if you wish just let me know! 🙂 I shall be starting tomorrow! x

30 day photo challenge – day 18 natural beauty

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven’t posted the 30 day photo challenge in a while (I think I missed like 2/3 days) but that’s because it was my partners birthday over the weekend! Hooray 🙂 not only that but I have a lot of essays due these upcoming weeks and I find it hard to work up the motivation to blog straight after I’ve just finished a long essay! So apologies 🙂

However I’m going to post the missing photos now and that way I would’ve caught up to the right day 🙂

So day 18 is natural beauty! And the photo I have chosen is of a bunch of roses I got on valentines day because roses are incredibly beautiful and completely natural! 🙂

30 Day Photo Challenge – DAY 13 FILM

I love films! I love movies and the cinema, cosy days and nights snuggled up on the sofa under a duvet with my partner watching a DVD with tons of sweets or sitting in the cinema with ice cream & snacks waiting for the movie to start, watching those terrible yet funny and intriguing trailers and ads! 🙂

So yesterday was day 13 and the keyword was film as you would’ve guessed by now, I’m posting a day late as I was having a film night last night and was to fixated watching the movies that I accidentally forgot to post till now but I did take a photo and the photo is some of our movie collection!

Liebster Award Nomination!

liebster_award
So a BIG thank you to Carlie because she kindly nominated my blog for a Liebster award! I have never really understood or known much about the Liebster award and this is a great privileged to be nominated! All I know about the Liebster award is that it is an award passed around by bloggers who in turn nominate their favourite bloggers and blogs to answer questions and then nominate others, this helps everyone get to know more about each other and shows a mass of support and promotes others blogs as well as your own.

So this is the requirements for this Liebster award:

  • The chosen nominee gives 11 facts about themselves
  • Answer the questions given to them by their nominator which in my case is Carlie!
  • Link back to the person who nominated them again in my case that’s Carlie 🙂
  • Nominate 11 blogs they love with under 200 followers & give them 11 questions made up by you and let them know you have given them the award as well 🙂

So let’s begin! 11 facts about me:

  1. I have a double jointed thumb! Gross to some but I find it cool because it gives me an advantage when playing thumb wars!
  2. When I listen to my iPod I like to change the song always before it ends, I’m just a little impatient.
  3. I once dyed my hair orange by accident, trying to achieve blonde. Safe to say I am happy being brunette still.
  4. My favourite animal is a Great White Shark!
  5. I have two tattoos at the moment, a medium sized cross on the left side of my back and a little Chinese symbol on the right side of my back.
  6. I once had pierced ears when I was like 10, I had unicorn earrings and my ears had an allergic reaction leading to me having to take them out and my piercing holes closed up and I have never had my ears pierced since.
  7. I love cheese, I think it’s brilliant!
  8. I completed Grand Theft Auto 5 in just about 4 days, I got very little sleep but it was worth it.
  9. I love volunteering and taking an interest in ways I can help people, animals and such because it makes me feel happy 🙂
  10. I love my writing to look neat, if it doesn’t I will re-write everything until it looks presentable.
  11. My favourite flower is a daffodil, but because they are only available a certain time of year I also love roses as well.

So that is 11 facts about myself, now onto the 11 questions Carlie asked!…

Saturday Blogger Interviews – Blogger Amyloo

Image

 

Name: Amyloo

Location: Oxfordshire (UK)

Age: 17 (Almost 18!)

Blog link: http://amyloosworld.blogspot.co.uk

Facebook/Twitter: https://www.facebook.com/AmyMaddisonFineArtist & https://twitter.com/AmyloosTweets

 

What three things do you blog about most: I mainly write about art, books and beauty. But I have many passions so I always make room for fashion, lifestyle and music related posts to. (I like to call it ‘The home of creativity’). 

Name three words to describe your blog: Creative, inspirational and fun!

When did you first start blogging: I first started blogging just over a month ago (sometime in April) and I’m so glad I did!

Why did you begin to blog: You could say up until the point I first started blogging, my life hadn’t turned out quite how I’d envisioned. I needed a rather large distraction, a place where I could sit back, relax and be myself. As a child I was an incredibly enthusiastic writer, so I was a little shocked that blogging had never occurred to me before. On top of that I was also looking to build meaningful relationships with other bloggers (that’s you guys *cough* Mary *cough*). Overall though its my passions that formed ‘AmyloosWorld’.

What’s one blogging tip that you would share with other potential bloggers: I would say never ignore the other wonderful bloggers around you. We shouldn’t forget we’re all in the same boat here. Each and every one of us have something to share in the blogosphere, so just be selfless and help anybody in need of it (in any possible way that you can). You’ll meet some amazing people and maybe even build life-long friendships; in turn they’ll give you the love and support you need to make your blog a success. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Do you see yourself still blogging in three/five years time: (Is this a trick question?) OF COURSE! Writing comes naturally to me; I don’t think it will ever just disappear. I enjoy every second and want it to last forever! (Don’t you?).

What’s one of the best things about being a blogger: Doing what I love is extremely important to me; it keeps me excited and content (you have this duty that was never there before, and you want to fulfil it). On a more personal note, the best thing to happen so far to me as a blogger is meeting Mary and completing my first commission. I have to give her all the credit for interviewing me and promoting my work on her blog (cheers to Mary!). I also love the rush of happiness you get when someone new starts following. It’s heart-warming to know that people love reading what I write (a few years ago I would have laughed in my own face).

Has blogging helped you significantly in any other way: It’s helped me feel much more confident about my appearance and my sense of style. All of a sudden I’ve grasped who I really am (something I was previously unsure of). It’s certainly changed my life for the better. Even though I can’t predict the future, this journey of self-discovery is definitely worth the time spent.
