Tag Post - Sunshine Blogger Award

Hey there lovely people 🙋

Today's post is slightly different than usual. This is because I am doing a Tag Post. I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by the lovely Caroline from Diva Inside.

The Sunshine Blogger Award is a nomination given to bloggers by bloggers. Members of the blogging community nominate others who they think are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers (that's so sweet!!).

The Rules
1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. (☝️️)
2. Answer the 11 questions your nominating blogger asked you. (👇)
3. Nominate other blogs and give them 11 questions to answer.
4. Notify your nominees.
5. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post. ☀️





Without further ado let's get into answering the 11 questions - make sure you stay till the end of the post to see who I've nominated 😄

How would you describe your blog to someone who doesn’t know it?
My blog's focus is mainly on fashion and beauty so you'd find mostly blogposts such as Outfit Ideas or Lookbooks and various makeup looks or hauls and favourite beauty products! However, I do blog when I go on a vacation and I'm also thinking on starting a new 'series' on my blog where I can give my advice on various topics with the intention to help others from my experience such as how to deal with negativity and how to stay positive 💗

If you were offered an all expenses paid vacation to one destination in the world, where would it be and why?
Wow, that's a tough question! I LOVE to travel and I was going to say U.S.A and Canada but I think I would choose some place like Bora Bora, Mexico or Hawaii instead ❤!


Do you have a song that instantly makes you happy?
Well for those of you who might not know I am a huge One Direction fan (I'm a little kid I know!) and I actually went to see them live in Dublin, Ireland about 3 years ago. So I would say any song from any One Direction album 😍

How has blogging changed your life?
I've met so many wonderful people along the way, some that I've actually become quite close friends with and these people actually get you because they're as obssessed with makeup or beauty gurus or selfies just like I am so I feel like I found my people haha! Also, I've met and discovered so many brands and products through various events and product launches and I've been so blessed and lucky with everything that has happened ever since Distorted Priorities started last September!

Is there a place where you would love to live for a year?
To be quite honest with you, I think I will not be able to live for a whole year away from my family and friends because I spend most of my time with the people I love so I think I would honestly get homesick! But, if I were to pick a country I think it would be Germany - I love that place so much, the only drawback is that I don't know any German!

How do you overcome your fears?
Well it depends what kind of fears they are. I was actually talking to my best friend today about some of my fears and although sometimes I feel like I have to listen to my own advice more I believe that the best thing to do is to face it immediately and most importantly to stop thinking and overthinking about how you are going to overcome that fear because I believe that you worsen the situation and imagine things that can happen when in reality it's so much simpler! 

What is your favorite blog/vlog-related memory?
I have quite a lot of beautiful memories but I think my top 2 would be my first bloggers' event that I attend which was the Melita Health and Beauty 45th Birthday Party for bloggers where I actually realised what this blogging community consisted of. The other blog-related memory would be Fashion Week because it was such an honour to be part of it and again I met so many wonderful people there!

What food could you not live without?
I would say pizza, pasta and meat haha! Well, basically all food and chocolate I could possibly imagine haha!

What is your favourite restuarant?
I think it would have to be Sciacca Grill in Valletta or Rexy in Mgarr Gozo, although it all depends on the type of food I'm craving. 

What things are you most grateful for in your life?
I think I would rather pick people and memories rather than things that I'm grateful for in my life such as my parents, family and closest friends that I'm so blessed and lucky to have. Also, the numerous memories related to travelling that I have - this thing that I get to explore a new city everytime I go somewhere amazes me everytime I get on a plane and I love it so much 💕!

What is your personal motto?
Most definitely, ''Live your life to the full'' and ''Live life as if there is no tomorrow''. These quotes speak for themselves so I don't really need to add anything else honestly!
