PPW #1- Liebster Award

You are probably wondering what PPW stands for, right? Well, PPW stands for ‘Personal Post Wednesday’ and this is will be the first one of many. Lately, I have realized that my blog is very information driven and I don’t make enough effort to share information about the girl behind the blog…

Liebster-Award-Simply-Organize-Life

In order to correct that, I created this new series to share more about my life’s achievements, failures and everything in between. What better way to start it off than being nominated for a Liebster Award by Marné from Koekelooks.

// WHAT IS A LIEBSTER AWARD? //

It’s certainly not a Grammy, but if you are a newbie blogger like me, it might as well be described as the Grammies for Newbie Bloggers. This award was created on the internet (like Marné mentioned HERE) for newer bloggers to get more exposure and recognition for their blogs.

It is also a great opportunity for newbie bloggers to introduce themselves through answering a set of random questions. Then, it will be my responsibility to nominate a few other bloggers so that they too can feel special and get more exposure.

So let’s get to it, shall we…

// 11 QUESTIONS = 11 ANSWERS //

  • Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as a platform for me to help others get their lives more organized, as well as, in the process work on my own organizational skills. Another reason that I started this blog was to make it my full-time career and be a stay at home wife (I am not a mom, yet)!

  • What is the worst advice you have ever received (blogging or otherwise)?

Well, where do I start… From the top of my head, the worst advice I have ever received is “people will like you for who you are”. I can think of multiple reasons why that statement is not true, but I will leave it up to your own imaginations.

  • Mention one of your guilty pleasures.

Oooooohhhhhhh… chocolate…I think that says it ALL!!

  • If you could time-travel, would you go back to the past or would you travel to the future?

I will definitely go to the past, especially if I can take all the information about life that I have accumulated so far. Or just give myself a hug and say it will be alright.

  • Describe yourself with a movie and/or song title.

The Intern. First of all, I have watched that movie way too many times to count. Secondly, I am basically still an intern blogger, so it makes total sense.

  • If money and time were not an issue, what career would you choose for yourself?

I would be a Travel Blogger. I am not sure if that is a legitimate career, but I guess if time and money aren’t a factor, we can make it one ;)

  • Where did you last go on holiday?

My last holiday was in Durban (South Africa) with my hubby, we went to my cousin’s wedding. It was also the first time my hubby and flew together on a commercial flight, which was pretty awesome.

  • Flats or stilettos?

Flats, definitely.

  • What makes you laugh?

British comedy and that one post about the guy that wanted someone to photoshop his hand to make it look like it’s on top of the Eiffel Tower. If you have never seen it before, what are waiting for? Go look it up…

  • Name any 3 fails, whether beauty products, embarrassing moments or subjects failed somewhere in your life
  1. When I was younger I peddled my bicycle directly into a thorn bush, because I was looking at a boy that was walking down our street. Needless to say, I was stuck in the thorn bush and my mother had to help me out. How embarrassing…
  1. The way I eat ribs, believe me, it’s messy.
  1. The way I am staring at my computer screen and thinking about all the embarrassing things that have happened to me in my life, but is way too inappropriate for this page.
  • 3 things you don’t want to live without.

The first and most important thing will be God. The other two will be my hubby and probably coffee. 

There you have it, some of these questions really had me thinking, but you can never know too much about yourself. Can you?
