So many……………

What do you do with awards? Do you put them in separate page or just in a post?

I am grateful for them (and proud) so I like to keep them in my sidebar. But, where will I put all of this?!

Because, when Alienora gives awards, she doesn’t just give a rose, she gives a bouquet and a crown, and a gown, and a carriage, and a prince… Ups, I got sidetracked. 😀

I told her I won’t accept this many awards, but there is no negotiation with her. 😛

She was definite in one thing, this one is passed along:



With this quote from the man who made it:

“Life is moments and we ride the bad ones knowing good ones will come again, and by doing so it helps us get through bad moments. I believe in moments, I cherish them.”—Shaun Gibson.

And a nomination of TEN chosen ones  

– chosen from my very complex mechanism: who I didn’t gave award to yet and I think deserve it 🙂

Aaaaand now, thank you to dear Lydia who blogs at for the awesome Sunshine Award. She has inspired one of my future post and she doesn’t even know it. 😀


Well, since I have already spent a huge amount of time coming up with 10 people who haven’t been nominated, I’m gonna merge the two awards. So, if you want to, you can take both.

I always wanted to be sunshine. From the moment I saw that this kind of award exists, of course. Now, there is only one moreee (dramatic voice: one mooooreee) award my heart wants to receive. Or my ego? I’ll let them decide. And I won’t tell you. But it’s nice. And I want it. Ok!! Ok, I will tell you. 😀 It is something Lighthouse award and it has a beautiful message behind it. Like The Sunshine Award has. 🙂 So, thank you Lydia!

My highly important answers:

  1. What inspired you to start a blog? Hmmmm… I don’t know. I was discovering the world of DIY and getting into photography so I thought to myself: “I should open a blog.” Pretty soon I discovered that I want to inspire and be inspired and that having a blog helps me understand me better. And that is greatly great.
  2. Do any of your close ‘real’ friends blog? No. They have hard time even reading mine. XD
  3. Have you had any strange, embarrassing or frightening blogging experiences? So far no. Only not so pleasant ones. What I’m thinking about are the privacy issues: to limit visibility of my blog, or to block someone but I don’t think there is a way… Hopefully I won’t have to think about doing that. Actually, I just got a comment which is written like the cat on catnip wrote it… 😀 
  4. If eating at a restaurant, what would be your favourite meal – with or without dessert? That depends on my mood really, I can eat anything not gross (Gross being normal in Japan)
  5. If money was no option, what would be your perfect holiday destination? The whole world!! Seriously, I am planning to see a lot of stuff…
  6. If money was no option, what would be your perfect evening’s entertainment? My favorite singer singing to me and my loved one at the roof of any famous building, or chatting away at Ellen’s place, or riding in a gondola at night while there are lanterns being released… Yeah I know… Amazing ideas! 😉
  7. What’s your favourite word? I have literally never thought of that. Hmmm… I have a word I use A LOT, I have that word for a while and then replace it with a new one. Right now, it is: “Pobogu” and it roughly translates into “For heaven’s sake.” 😀
  8. What quality do you think friends appreciate most in you? You have to ask them. 🙂
  9. What personality characteristic do you find the most off-putting or irritating in others? Being evil, rude, violent without apparent reason. Two-faced. Close-minded.
  10. How would you like to be remembered by those you care about? That is so morbid. I don’t want to think about that, but my guess would be; Not completely wasted dancing with some guy with his hands all over me while I scream woooo??

And there it is. Off we go bloggin’ 🙂

    Awwwww, thank you for the award! So very sweet of you to think of me!

    I too can’t stand rudeness in others, I’ve always wanted to ride in a gondola, and I love to travel. 🙂

    ❤ Christy

  5. Congratulations, Ivy and thank you for the nomination. I’ll have to find a day to write up an award acceptance post (it does take me longer than one would expect, and I’ve been shirking that responsibility since December… so it may take a while to catch up).
    Have a lovely week.
    Warm regards,

      1. You do whatever you want 🙂 I sometimes follow the rules, sometimes not… For e., on my last nomination I think I had to nominate 5 bloggers, I nominated 6 and two of them didn’t do anything, some people just don’t want any more awards and some just forget. I would forget if I don’t pin it down in my mind to at least say thank you to the person who nominated me. 🙂

      2. Oh, yeah, and when I do read next nominees it is often that I found more interesting blogs to follow, so that’s a plus. 🙂

    Congrats Ivy – very well deserved! And love your answers to the questions 😉 I have put my awards in a separate page. 😀

  7. Hah great post. Some of those awards I’ve not seen like the wordpress one! Your answers amused me esp mentioning perfect evenings entertainment, I’m just waking up and read it as wanting your boyfriend to sing on the roof! He better take a safety harness with him hehe x

    1. Hahahaha oh trust me he can’t sing. 😀 OK, he can but only when he’s around me… I meant my favorite artist like Michael Buble, Norah Jones or Eros Ramazzotti… 😉
      I considered you to give you an award but I already got 10 people. You know what…scratch that. You get it too. I’m gonna edit now.

    1. Hehehehe Ralph! You HAVE to do awards 😀
      But it is only oneeee, the one for WordPress family, and this totaly fits with your new, super cool look you’re striving for in a vicious online dating world. 😉 No question needed to answer also. 🙂
