Creative Blogger Award

On Feb. 22 I was kindly nominated for the Creative Blogger Award, by the lovely Jaanethough from Singapore! First of all I’d like to say ‘THANKS’ – knowing that you girls (& guys) out there enjoy Lifestyle Counter means the world to me! Then I’d also like to apologize for not tackling this sooner. I would hate for that to come across as ungrateful when, in fact, it’s just another side-effect of my – generally – being all over the place. So, without further ado, here goes:

The Rules:

  • Nominate 20 other blogs and their links
  • Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important)
  • Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers
  • Notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
  • Pass these rules on to them

My 5 Facts:

  • I’m currently obsessed with “How to Get Away With Murder” and “The Americans”. On that last note, I also have the sneaking suspicion I’m developing a bit of a crush on Matthew Rhys (it’s the eyes I tell you)!
  • I’m absolutely rubbish when it comes to… drinking water! Know those eight, daily recommended, glasses? Well, most days I won’t even drink half of that. I have tried everything to get into the habit of doing it more – but nothing seems to work. Thankfully I do, at least, hydrate in other ways (mainly coffee, tea and/or juices).
  • I’m 37 years of age but consistently get mistaken for a 27-year-old (& find people’s reactions when I tell them my actual age highly amusing). I guess I’ve stumbled upon the one benefit of having oily skin (extra resistance to fine lines and wrinkles that is).
  • I’ve never broken a bone or needed stitches in my life (shhh…don’t jinx it!)
  • When I was younger I wanted to become an actress. Somehow I ended up with a Master’s in Politics & International Relations (?), instead. People often comment on how I’m so passionate & expressive, I would have made a great actress. Makes me wonder if, maybe, I missed my calling…hehe!

Should you fancy reading more random facts about me, you can check out this and this.

My 20 (amazing) Nominees:


  1. Awww congrats honey ! I too , used to be very lazy when it came to driking water but I had to do it anyway for my skin ❤

  2. Hello. Welcome and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
    I know I need to do it, not just for my skin but for my overall wellbeing (we all are more than half % water after all). I just can’t figure out a way to make it stick…

  3. Christiana, thank you!!! First, I loved reading your answers. It’s fun to meet a fellow intellectually driven blogger who loves the creative outlet that a blog affords. I will definitely do this tag, but I have to give you the heads up that I’m behind on tags so it may take me a bit. 🙂
    Second, I had fun looking at the blogs you nominated!! They’re great ones!

  4. Thanks! And, no worries, I’m ridiculously behind on tags and award posts, too – so I totally understand. Will be looking forward to reading your answers and checking out your nominees, whenever you get round to putting the post up 😉

  5. Hello Christiana! Thanks for the tag! Hehe it was fun reading your answers 🙂 I used to be the same with drinking water and now I carry a bottle of water everywhere I go, so I force myself to drink more ahha

  6. Hello! You are a ray of hope 😉 If one can do it, we all (theoretically) can… Enjoy the tag – will be looking forward to checking out your answers & nominees. XOXO
