The Kind Blogger Award

On Wednesday, the wonderful Ruth nominated me for The Kind Blogger Award. It honestly made my day, Ruth is always so sweet and supportive and said some really kind, thoughtful and encouraging things about me and my blog. Thank you Ruth! You are awesome <3


  1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 5 questions set out by the aforementioned Blogger.
  3. Nominate 1 person who you feel is worthy of this award.
  4. Give 3 reasons for nominating this person.
  5. List these rules and display the Award Logo/ Badge on your own blog.


You’ve worked with some great businesses to share their products – do you have any favourites?

I would say my favourite one so far has been with Beauty h. It was a last minute opportunity which I applied for on Twitter, and the very next day my mum and I were treated to a Spa Day in the New Forest for National Best Friends Day. It was lovely to be able to spend some spontaneous mum/daughter time, enjoy a massage, drink tea, eat cake and play crazy golf. A recent favourite is Back To Uni Essentials with Ryman Stationery mainly because I am a stationery addict.

In terms of blogging, what are your goals in the next 12 months?

Ooh good question. To be honest, I have never set any blogging goals, I just like to be surprised by whatever comes next. Although, as my final Open Uni course starts in October, I would say my main goal for the next 12 months is to try and balance blogging and studying.

Name one place on your travel bucket list and share why you’d like to visit there.

I would love to visit Bali because it looks beautiful and it’s all about the yoga. Going to Bali for a yoga retreat would be the absolute dream.

As Autumn has now arrived, what is your favourite thing about this season?

Dr. Martens, fluffy jumpers, hot chocolate, bubble baths, being all cosy indoors when it’s cold outside.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try”. You never know what you are capable of unless you give it a go. Try something new and surprise yourself.


It’s so hard to just pick one blogger for this award as there are so many awesome bloggers out there. I have decided to pass the kindness onto the lovely Jade from

I have always admired Jade’s gorgeous photography and enjoy catching up with her fantastic blog posts, plus she has the coolest hair. Not only that, but I’m sure everyone who knows Jade will agree that she is such a kind and supportive member of the blogging community.

Jade also co-runs Creators Clan, a twitter community for creatives and is always retweeting my posts. I am forever grateful for her continued kindness and as she has just launched her shop, I also wanted to share with you some of her awesome printables which you can buy once and use forever.

Stay tuned as Jade has more fabulous blogging products in the pipeline too…

    I loved reading your answers, Bexa! All of your favourite things about the colder months are mine, too – I wore my Dr Martens the other day for the first time in a little while and instantly felt happy 😂 I think juggling studying and blogging must be tough, so good luck with it – it will all be worth it in the end! 💜

    Couldn’t agree more about Jade, she’s delightful, and I can’t wait to see what else she releases in her shop. I love the fact you used this as an opportunity to showcase her existing printables – just proves I made the right choice with you 😃 You’re a total star xx

And I’ll definitely head over to Jade’s shop too, it looks like she has some lovely bits and pieces 🙂 xx

    Congratulations on your kindness award. Ruth has asked you some great questions. I particularly liked your answer regarding the best bit of advise you’ve recieved. I think we could all learn from taking a leap of faith and trusting our own ability when it comes to trying new things. Bali sounds fantastic I’ve seen such stunning scenery from people who have traveled there.

  26. September 11, 2018 / 7:53 pm

    Yay congratulations on being nominated for The Kind Blogger Award, so well deserved! That’s amazing that you were able to go on a Spa Day with your Mom after applying for it on twitter, twitter truly is amazing for having opportunities for bloggers!

    I may have a tip for blogging while studying – Definitely pre-write some posts from now-ish for you to post during October while you’re settling in with course work. Then, try and make a set schedule on the weekend to get some blogging done for an hour or so after doing a bit of your course work first, sort of like a reward for doing some course work! That’s how I usually managed blogging + studying 🙂

    My favorite thing about the Autumn season is that everyday becomes sweater weather & hot chocolate! I actually don’t have Dr. Martens but I actually really want to buy some!

    I love that quote – Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. You never know what you’re capable of until you take the first step 🙂

    I actually haven’t heard of Creators Clan, I’m off to hop on twitter to give it a follow now! 🙂


    • September 12, 2018 / 12:16 pm

      Thank you so much for your lovely encouraging comments Sahara 💖. I always appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and leave thoughtful and kind comments.

    Such a fun blogger award tag thing. I never know what to call these! Ruth had some great questions. I completely agree about fluffy jumpers, hot chocolates and being warm and cosy inside. As I type this it’s all grey and cold looking outside, not even 5pm and it’s dark.. reading this made me want a hot chocolate to be honest! ♥

    • September 15, 2018 / 10:04 am

    One of my goals is to balance out blogging and studying too as I am going into my final year at uni! Bali would be so bliss, my sister has recently came back from there. I love bubble baths and hot chocolates anyway but they are even better in colder weather!! I love Jade, I did not know about Creators Clan so I have gave them a follow! Her printables are so nice too, it sucks that I haven’t got a printer but after this post I hope they get a lot more love because they are brill!! x

    • September 16, 2018 / 6:06 pm

      Thanks so much for the lovely comment Shar! 💖 Bali would be such an amazing holiday, I hope your sister had a great time! Definitely agree, Jades printables are fab! Good luck with your final year at uni too 💕☺️ xx
