Creative Blogger Award

I have recently been nominated for the Creative Blogger Award by a wonderful fellow blogger, the Timelesswheel. Thank you dearly for this lovely compliment and for considering my blog worthy of this award. Your blog is a wonderful place of collected thoughts and photographs, and full of inspiration for people to start living their lives in the moment. Its always such a pleasure to visit your blog.


To accept this award, here are five new facts about myself.

  1. I hate mosquitoes and cockroaches
  2. I love baking cakes and desserts
  3. My first job was at McDonalds
  4. Even with my Italian background I could happily live the rest of my life never eating pizza or pasta again (my grandma would be horrified!)
  5. My most cherished time of every week is weekend breakfast

Here are the fellow bloggers who I would like to nominate for this award. Their blogs brighten up my days.

Lastly, a very huge thank you to all who read, enjoy and comment on my blog!

Versatile Blogger Award

My blog was recently nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by lovehappily. Thank you dearly for this very sweet gesture that I will gratefully accept. Paul’s blog is one of my favorite places to visit for general life encouragement and positivity, and I think its an inspirational blog to all who visit.


In acceptance of this award, here are the seven things about myself that others may not know.

  1. When I lived in Sydney I had quite a large orchid collection (around 100)
  2. I had never travelled overseas before the age of 23, and now I live overseas
  3. My background is Italian, and I have never been to Italy….(yet)
  4. I am lactose intolerant, which developed 6 months before I turned 30
  5. I’m a scientist researching heart disease, but my PhD was in reproduction
  6. A food I eat every day is peanut butter on toast
  7. I love the smell of coffee, but hate the taste, so instead I drink tea

Lastly I would like to pass this nomination onto 15 of my favorite blogs.

Thank you all for welcoming me into the blogging community! It has been a truly wonderful experience that I hope continues for a very long time.
