real-neat-blog-award-logo

Off Her Mocha wrote a very enticing blog post after her nomination for a Real Neat Blog Award and if you’d fancy a read I’ma link that bad bittie here. Thank you so much for nominating me to do this next! I love sharing more about myself and hope anyone that stops by to read this enjoys my answers to learn a lil’ more about ya girl KS Loves…

THE RULES:
Put the award logo on your blog.
Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Out of all of your blog posts, which has been your favourite to produce?

You know what, I gotta say all of my Wanderlust Wednesday and Empties products posts. I flippin’ loooove reviewing food and trying out new restaurants on a regular occurrence. I also love writing empties reviews because who doesn’t love a solid review of something someone has completely used up and whether or not they’ll purchase it again?! Those are my holy grail posts.

What is your idea of a successful blog?

Engaging. I want to be able to excite others and entice people to have conversations over anything and everything.

What are your 3 most-played songs at the moment?

Shape of You and What Do I Know? by Ed Sheeran
Of All Things (ft. Too $hort) by G-Eazy

If you could switch lives with anyone for a day who would it be and why?

I have this really bizarre dream of wanting to experience Whoville IRL – and yes I know that’s impossible but I want to. So I guess Cindy Lou Hoo.

What were your New Years resolutions and have you stuck to them?

I have to be honest here I never really make New Years resolutions. If I set my mind to something at any point of the year, I do my best to follow through!

What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

Don’t ignore your gut feelings and your instincts. Have an itch to start something new? Do it! Feeling a bit of luck and inspiration? Go for it. Worried somebody or something is dragging you down? Ditch it.

What impact has having a blog had on you and your life?

Meeting sOoOoOo many new people from all over the world! I love it and feed off of the energy. Gives me so much courage and motivation to try new things and not be afraid of failure.

I’m going to nominate 3 people for this:

  1. Lulu over at Voudouri’s Views
  2. Katy from Something Different
  3. Sakshi at The NChanting whispers

YOUR QUESTIONS, LADIES:

  1. What’s your biggest blogging milestone to date and why is it so important to you?
  2. Dinner or dessert // favorite food from that answer?
  3. What is something you’d like all of your followers to know about you?
  4. What is your next goal for your blog?
  5. What is an activity you could spend hours doing?
  6. If I’m traveling for a week I cannot live without these three items: _______________
  7. Since starting a blog, have you stepped outside your comfort zone with a specific post/picture/etc. and how did that feel?

Xoxo,
KS Loves

Three Quotes in Three Days || Day 2

Gonna make sure I throw a shout-out everyday for the nomination from EllieLilyLouise over on her blog! Welcome back fam, to day TWO of the three day quote challenge.

Instructions:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

QUOTE NUMBER TWO:

Sticking with the theme of “get outside your comfort zone,” this quote also has quality meaning to me and it should to you, too! You truly have to step outside your realm of coziness to get to any new milestone. What’s difficult is the actual push to get there. The act of subjecting yourself to scrutiny. It’s difficult, but can be so rewarding.

Have you been wanting to show your face on Instagram stories, or post a time-lapse video of a lil’ makeup tutorial on Instagram? ME TOO – and I have started doing it recently! Because I can’t help my blog grow if people don’t know the girl behind the blog posts.

My challenge to you is to create some attainable goals for the next few weeks. They don’t have to be stressful, but small things to get outside your comfort zone. Maybe you’ve been wanting to be more active on Twitter and are nervous what people will think of your thoughts.

Do it.

Or maybe you’ve been holding back a brand new idea at work.

Don’t.

If I can believe in myself then you can extend the same faithfulness to yourself!

The three bloggers I nominate to complete this challenge are:

  1. Sammy over at Seeking Sammy
  2. Aubree on her blog The Gold Ambition
  3. Rikki on her blog

See you tomorrow for quote #3!
