The Liebster Award
I was nominated for the Liebster Award by 3 lovely blogs!
The first nomination was from Paige at Little P Blog. I asked her for a little blurb about her blog:
“I blog about fashion, beauty and lifestyle, it’s just a little space where I can write about anything on my mind sometimes, I can write something down, put it out there and get it off my mind x”.
I was also nominated by Blogging Detective:
“My name is blogging detective, and my blog is formed around short stories and poetry, with photography. They are mostly fantasy and fiction, but sometimes it is lifestyle.”
Lastly, I was nominated by Sarah & Beth at Live Your Best Lush Life.
“We’re no experts, but between us we’ve tried most of the fantastic products Lush have to offer, so are keen to share our findings, successes, and failures with fellow fans. The key thing we’ll focus on is what works for particular skin/hair types.”
You should definitely go & check out their blogs!!
I wasn’t able to answer all 3 sets of questions so I chose just a few to answer!
The questions that they passed on to me are:
How long have you been blogging for?
It will be 2 years in January!
Have you considered uploading to YouTube? Or do you also have a YouTube account?
I have been thinking about creating a Youtube channel nonstop, but I just don’t think that I would be very comfortable in front of the camera, and right now I want to focus on my blog! I’m also in the midst of creating my very own photography website with my very talented boyfriend!
What do you like to blog about most?
My favorite things to blog about are my travels and baking or fun recipes for food or drinks. Mainly just lifestyle stuff.
Where is your favourite place that you have travelled to?
I haven’t been out of the country yet (I am going to Nicaragua in January), but my favorite place would have to be Portland, Oregon.
What made you want to start blogging?
I started this blog when I was in the midst of a very hard semester at school. I needed a way to be creative, and this was the perfect outlet. It has grown to be so much more than I ever thought it would be & I’m glad that I have continued on this little journey.
What is the most frustrating thing about blogging?
Coming up with content that is unique to who you are. It is very easy to get sucked into thinking that we are supposed to blog a certain way or about certain things. But definitely remembering to be yourself and not comparing yourself to other bloggers.
Favourite series to watch at the moment?
Gilmore Girls, but I’m almost finished with the series so any suggestions on what to watch next would be awesome!
What is your favourite Christmas tradition?
My family always reads the Bible before we open our stockings, and it is fun sitting together with my family. It is very important to me to remember the reason that we are celebrating Christmas which is Jesus’ birth.
Are you open about your blog? Do you tell people that you blog?
Yes, I tell as many people as possible!
Twitter or Instagram?
I have always loved Instagram. I love photography & it is a great place to showcase my portfolio. You can find me at sarahjune_xoxo.

Definitely check out all the blogs linked above.
