The Sunshine Blogger Award

September 26, 2019
Blog post

I was nominated by the lovely Danni aka ABeautifulThing for The Sunshine Blogger Award. It’s been quite some time since I did one of these so thank you very much for the nomination! If you’re not already make sure you’re following ABeautifulThing for incredible travel and food posts!

Here are the questions:

1.) Do you have a favourite movie?

There are way too many movies for me to pick just one favourite! I think my most recent favourites are Aladdin, Christopher Robin and The Greatest Showman.

2.) If someone visited the area you live in, what attraction should they see before leaving?

There really isn’t anything to see where I live haha. While Somerset is a very pretty place, the town I live in isn’t anything special and is quite dull. Around Somerset though I’d suggest visiting Wells if you’re a fan of the movie Hot Fuzz haha. Also, the city of Bath is a must! Bath is one of my favourite cities, it’s so full of history and things to do and see.

3.) Do you believe in the one/soulmates?

I definitely do!

4.) What is your dream destination and why?

Oh, that’s a tough question! I’d love to visit so many places, I think the top places would be Transylvania, Lapland, Germany, Hawaii, The Maldives and Disneyworld.

5.) What is your favourite time of year?


6.) What do you most look forward to doing when you get home?

Seeing my cat, Gaston, taking off my makeup and getting into comfy, lounge clothes.

7.) Do you have jewellery or a tattoo that holds a special meaning to you?

I don’t have any tattoos but I do have quite a bit of jewellery. My engagement ring is obviously the most special item. I also have a ring Jaz got me for my 21st birthday, a pink topaz ring I got from my mum for Christmas, a Tiffany charm bracelet I got for my 16th Birthday and a Tiffany Key Necklace that I wear pretty much every day which I saved for and bought for myself when I was a teenager.

8.) What is on your bucket list?

A few things currently on my bucket list are:

  • Go to a pumpkin patch
  • Explore London more – I move to Essex next week and I’m already planning a ton of things to do over the next few months.
  • Travel abroad more
  • Find a career that I love and feel passionate about
  • Get a McDonalds delivered – This just isn’t an option where I live so it’s a silly little thing I want to do when I move haha.

9.) What are you most looking forward to (within the next year)?

Next year Jaz and I will be moving into our very first home together which I’m very excited about, plus we’ll be getting married next October! I also have a lot of trips planned next year to Italy, Crete and potentially Hawaii and L.A for our Honeymoon.

10.) Where is your special place?

Disneyland Paris. I’ve been there so often it feels like my home away from home. It makes me incredibly happy to be there, plus it’s where I got engaged. I have so many good memories with so many different people in Disneyland Paris.

11.) Would you rather be hot or cold?

Cold, I find it much easier to warm up than cool down.

Ellie’s London

Ellie Plummer

Kari Blogs

My Questions are:

1.) What do you love most about blogging?

2.) What is your greatest achievement so far this year?

3.) If you could be any animal which would you be?

4.) If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

5.) Where is your favourite place to shop for clothes?

6.) What’s on your bucket list?

7.) Do you have jewellery or a tattoo that has a special meaning to you?

8.) Does pineapple belong on pizza?

    I love reading posts like this – I mean is there anything better than autumn and getting home, taking makeup off and getting into lounge clothes plus fluffy socks? It’s one of my favourite things. I hope you get to Hawaii, it will be an awesome honeymoon. Thank you so much for the nomination as well! ?

    Aww this was so fun to read? I loved Aladdin and I’ve watched The Greatest Showman so many times I love it? Wells is beautiful, as is Bath. I watched Hot Fuzz after I went Wells haha. I love reading people’s dream destinations, the Maldives is one of my choices. I loved Lapland is magical at Christmas. Xx

      Lots of people do love coming to Somerset for a relaxing country getaway but when you live here it can get a bit tedious haha. Disneyland Paris is amazing! I’m going back in November and I can’t wait. ? Aww you’re welcome!! ?
