The Sunshine Blogger Award

I’ve been nominated for a blog award by the lovely Hannah from Hannah’s Life Diaries!! Just wanted to start with a thank you to her for the nomination, I appreciate that she would think of me for such a lovely award!

The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to those who are creative, positive, and inspiring, while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.

The rules:

  • Thank the Blogger who nominated you in a blog post and link back to your blog.
  • Answer the 11 Questions The Blogger asked to your blog.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post or on your blog.

My Answers to Hannah’s Questions:

When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging back in the summertime last year (I think around July 2017) mostly because I was turning 20 years old that August and wanted to do something with my time that was a bit more valuable than just sitting around to be honest!

Why did you pick your blog name?

I’ve always been someone that embraces my individuality – particularly with my style, and so I wanted to create a blog name that reflects this individuality which is where the ‘Original’ came from. As for the ‘Female’, I’m guessing that’s pretty self explanatory! I then put the two together and ended up with ‘Female Original’ and 7 months later I’m still loving the name.

Which of your own blog posts has been your favourite, so far?

I think my favourites would have to be the posts in my What University Students Are Wearing series because I absolutely love showing fashion on my blog. If you’ve read my blog for a little while you’ve probably noticed that I don’t actually feature myself on it through photography etc. but I wanted to showcase my love of fashion in some way. So, with this in mind, I thought that a great way to include fashion in the blog without using myself was to reach out to fellow student bloggers and feature their amazing style instead! I love the fact that not only am I getting to include great fashion content but I’m also promoting fellow bloggers in the process.

What’s been your favourite blog to read lately?

I’ve been completely obsessed with Megan Ellaby at the moment. Her style is everything I would wear if I had the money to (student budgets don’t exactly allow for constant wardrobe updates) and her music taste is exactly the same as mine so I’m constantly finding amazing new musicians to listen to. Plus…she’s a fellow Northerner so I’m obviously going to support her!

If you haven’t checked out her blog already then you’re seriously missing out!

If you could meet any one person in the world, who would it be and why?

I’m always so rubbish at thinking of answers to these kinds of questions! I think it’s probably because I’m such a realist (can’t help it!).

The most inspirational person in your life?

Again, I always struggle to give an answer to this question! Other than my parents, I think I’m probably my biggest inspiration. I’m constantly trying to push myself to do new things and I’m honestly so proud of myself for starting and sticking with my blog (for example).

Favourite place to be?

I absolutely love being in a city. It doesn’t really even matter which city; just anything with a bit of hustle and bustle! In the UK I’d probably have to go with London because it’s just an amazing place really isn’t it? Outside of the UK I’d have to go with San Sebastián – it’s just the most beautiful city to spend some time in.

What film have you watched the most?

To be completely honest with you it’s probably Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging. I always seem to put it on in the background when I’m tidying my room or if I’m just having a chilled night I’ll whack it on. It’s not that it’s my favourite film (because it definitely isn’t) but it’s just so easy to watch!

Cats, Dogs or both?

Oh CATS by far!

Something your proud of in your life?

Again, my blog is something that I’m super proud of myself for making.

One piece of advice you would give to your younger self? 

Care less about what other people think.
