I’m baaaaaaaaaack.


Although I’m busy revising I still want to post every so often between breaks, so I decided to put up this awards post!

I just want to say that I am so lucky and grateful that I get nominated for awards- it really makes my day 🙂 And I am so so so happy that I was nominated to do the Liebster award by the lovely Lindsay Rose and also the amazing Aqsa– please go check out their great blogs!

The rules for this award:

  1. Acknowledge blog who nominated you and display the award
  2. Give 11 random facts about yourself
  3. Nominate 11 blogs
  4. Notify them of the nomination
  5. Give them 11 questions to answer

11 random facts:

  1. I am left handed! I don’t no why, but some of my friends are still so surprised when they see me writing.
  2. I really want to go on a jet ski- it looks super fun!
  3. I went to the Edinburgh fringe last summer- such a fun experience!
  4. I have the biggest fear of spiders, and insects in general 😦
  5. My favourite food is my mum’s chicken curry 🙂
  6. I would love to watch a show on Broadway. Maybe in the future if I get the chance to go to New York.
  7.  Custard creams are my favourite biscuits ever!
  8. I love travelling to Pakistan on holiday- this may sound strange but I really do feel a connection when I travel there.
  9. I am currently growing out my hair!
  10. I bite my lips all the time- it’s a nervous habit :/
  11. I don’t have a middle name, but I’ve always wanted one (it would be Iman).

Questions Lindsay gave me:

  1. Favourite holiday destination? I can’t choose between Toronto, Pakistan and Oman. There are things that I love about all of these places, but I really can’t choose. 
  2. Favourite Food? If it’s Friday night then pizza 🙂
  3. What is your most last minute decision you ever made? Honestly, I am so lazy that I just don’t make decisions full stop, let alone last-minute decisions. The most impulsive decision I’ve ever made was to buy a £30 pair of jeans, but that doesn’t really have anything to do with the question lol. 
  4. Where do you live? London ❤
  5. Phone or lipstick? My phone gets priority. If I didn’t have my phone, then I wouldn’t be able to see Jaden Smiths tweets. And then I would be very sad. 
  6. If you had one wish what would it be? To be happy for the rest of my life 🙂
  7. Do you have any siblings? 3 sisters. 
  8. What is your number one TO DO on your bucket list? Visit New York!! I want to so badly- I think it is such a beautiful city!
  9. What is your earliest memory? Helping my sister save a hedgehog that was trapped in our football net!
  10. How much sleep do you usually get? 7 or 8 hours? I really should get more, but it’s like the later it gets into the evening the more awake I become! 
  11. Bath or shower? Bath, because I love bath bombs!! 

Questions Aqsa gave me:

  1. Who is your inspiration? I guess my mum, but it changes between people in my family. 
  2. What are your favourite hobbies? I have recently really got into running- mostly because I’m revising and it’s a great stress-reliever.  
  3. What’s your favourite colour? Really dark blue. If I’m in a really happy mood then it’s pink, but that rarely happens lol 
  4. What is your favourite season? Up until recently it used to be winter, but it’s now changed to summer!
  5. If you had a week left to live, what would you do? I would go on a massive holiday and try to travel to as many places as I possibly could in that week. 
  6. If you had a superpower, what would it be? Invisibility! I think it would be so cool to walk around unnoticed and listen to conversations and basically be really nosy 🙂
  7. Where do you want to travel to? Vancouver, New York, Auckland, Sydney, LA, Spain, and many more!
  8. What’s your favourite ice cream flavour? Cookies and cream! Can’t go wrong with that flavour. 
  9. What is your favourite song? Right now, its Galway Girl by Ed Sheeran!!!! His album is bombbbbbb
  10. What do you want your legacy to be? I’d think I’d want to be remembered for making some sort of important medical discovery- or finding an element. I think it would be the coolest thing if there was an element named after me!
  11. What made you start blogging? There were a lot of things, in temrs of culture and also just in my life in general, that I wasn’t happy about, and I thought it woud be a good idea to write about problems that annoyed me. I’m an angsty teenager and I really needed an outlet where I could express my thoughts and opinions in a (fairly) cohesive manner, and also meet other like-minded individuals!
