Thank you for the award! / Blogger reconigition award..

Hello, welcome back to my blog, I would just like to say a huge thank you for all the positive feedback and support, I received on my last post. It’s great! I am happy to announce I have been nominated for the Blogger recognition award. I am extremely happy as my blog is still fairly new and I have been trying to release more content this year. This award is great as it’s so nice to see bloggers acknowledging and supporting each other. It also helps with exposure, so a win win either way!

So, how did my blog start? I have always loved writing, I wanted to be a journalist from the age of 10-11. I decided to start a blog as I wanted to share my views and opinions with the world and make everything a bit more ‘Golden’. I find blogging very fun and it also calms me down after a long day at university or work. I am going to write a post on ‘5 reasons you should start a blog’ which will also include advice to new bloggers, but if I had to give one piece of advice right now, it would be “just do it! You don’t have anything to lose”!

Calling all bloggers, I decided to pry myself away from Love Island (I am obsessed) for at least 2 minutes, to make a Facebook group for bloggers, the group is called Share Blogger Magic or SBM. I only have ten members at the moment so if you want somewhere to let your hair down, share your blog posts or tips and social media links, please join the club! It’s open to anyone. Thank you to TeeShares for nominating me and my child The Golden Perspective Blog. TeeShares is a New Zealand-based lifestyle blogger. Check this blog out as there are some amazing personal posts on her blog, my favourites include Letter to My Dad and Say NO To Fear – Top 10 Tips

Get the red carpet ready, I have hand picked 15 other bloggers from different categories. Categories : Beauty and fashion, Travel, Food / Recipes and Lifestyle. Make sure you check them out, they are fantastic!

And the nominees are.. 


Beauty and Fashion

Damsel in Dior – first of all, I love the name of the blog,  It rolls off the tongue beautifully and who doesn’t love Dior. I love the pictures, they are very fresh and modern. Not to mention she is stunning. ‘Damsel in Dior’ has lifestyle, style and travel categories on her blog. This blog has lots of fab info. My favourite posts include 8 Tools in my Blogging Kit and What’s in my Office Drawer {and Tour}

BeccapBeauty – one of my favourite beauty blogs. Becca knows all the latest beauty products! Her contour is so sharp, I’m scared it’s going to leap out of the screen and cut me. You can tell Becca has a huge passion for make up. My favourite posts include A Nude for Every Occassion and There is no Such Thing as Too Much Glitter – At Least That’s What I’m Telling Myself – Haul

Not your average girly girl – Lauren is based in San Diego, CA. (jealous) Lauren blogs all things beauty and fashion related. My favourite posts include First Impressions: Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Palette and Mystery Blogger Award

Food for my family – ‘Food for my family’ shares recipes, tips, opinions, and philosophy on food. Shaina teaches her  four children how to eat well ‘seasonally, locally, organically, deliciously, and balanced’. I think this blog will help a lot of families and yummy mummy’s. The recipes Building a Yogurt Bowl and Lemongrass Chicken Rice Noodle Bowls: Bun Ga Nuong sound great!

Cooking without limits – Gabi started her blog, because she wanted to learn how to cook healthy food for her little one and share her cooking experiments with everyone. I love this Lemonade recipe! It is perfect for Summer. There are some fantastic mouthwatering photographs as well!

Drizzle and hurricane books – I love this book blog, I think it’s extremely unique and I really adore reading so I think it’s great. This blog is dedicated to books and travelling, two of my favourite things! Here you will find bookish discussions, book reviews, recommendations, but also the ‘endless struggles and happiness of being a book blogger’. My favourite posts include On book blogging expectations vs. reality  and Where I casually freak out about the books I have read so far this year

Confessions of a hot mess – is a great lifestyle blog. I love the name as I often feel like a hot mess sometimes. I love the posts Chokers are back with a vengeance! and Give a girl the right shoes & she will conquer the world.

The Lindsey Vibe – another great lifestyle blog. ‘The Lindsey vibe’ is a lifestyle blog, however Lindsey likes to think of it as so much more than that.

  1. Wow, thanks so much for your kind words.

    I have already done the award here –

    Be it over a year ago!

    My advice these days is that blogging is a hobby, it’s something that we all do because we enjoy it and we shouldn’t treat it as a job and get ourselves down if things don’t go to plan.

    We should be realistic with our blog posts, I personally find posting three posts a week is reasonable for me but if I’m not able to post that many I won’t beat myself up about it.

    Thanks again for the nomination and take care.
