Brotherhood of the World Blogger Award (+2400 followers!)

Hey guys! It has been a while since I’ve done a blog award. But the lovely Azra, from Simply Serenity has nominated me for an award I haven’t done before. So let’s do this!


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to his/her blog
  • List the rules of the award and post a picture of the award
  • Answer the questions from your nominator
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers and be sure to let them know
  • Write a list of questions of your nominees to answer


Azra’s Questions:

  • What is your biggest blogging goal for this year?

I wrote it down in my 2018 Resolutions post, but it’s to reach 5000 followers. I decided to just put down an insane number, but my blog keeps surprising me, so we’ll see what happens.

  • What is next destination on your travel bucket list?

Japan!! We bought our tickets last week, and we’re heading off in May. I’m so excited!!

  • What is one thing that you wish you can do but you are scared to do?

Something crazy like bungee jumping or sky-diving. It sounds like an incredible experience, but also terrifying you know.

  • What is your current favorite meal to have?


  • What is your favorite dessert?

So many. Cookies. Cheesecake. Pancakes. Everything sweet.

  • What is last movie you saw and did you like it?

The Greatest Showman. I quite liked it. It was aesthetically pleasing, I loved the songs and all the dancing. Plot wise and character wise though, it was a little weak.

  • What is your favorite song of the moment?

End Game

  • What are your favorite blog posts to read?

I like reading a whole range. Travel ones are cool as I get to see new places. Lifestyle ones are fun as I like knowing what you guys get up to. Beauty ones are fascinating as I’m trying to learn more about makeup. I follow a huge range of bloggers really.

My Questions:

  1. Do you prefer to cook or order take out?
  2. What did you do last weekend?
  3. What is your favorite ice cream flavour?
  4. Would you rather have a grapefruit sized head or a head the size of a watermelon?
  5. What would motivate you to run a marathon?
  6. Do you have any vacation plans coming up?
  7. How did you get your name? Do you know the meaning of your name?
  8. What is something that you’ve never done but would like to try?
  9. What’s the best thing that happened to you this week?
  10. What do you like to do on a rainy day?


It’s always nice to do an award post every now and then. Thanks again to Azra for nominating me!

Finally, as you may have saw in the title. My blog has reached yet another milestone. They seem to be piling on fast lately, and I have no idea why but I’m thrilled! My blog has past the 2400 follower mark, and while some seem to be random business accounts, I still appreciate that more people find my blog and are interested enough to want to read more! I really feel like I should do a special post for the 2500 mark, so I’ll put on my thinking hat and hopefully come up with something good!

Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Congrats on the award, and on the huge blog achievement – that’s fab news! I hope you celebrate with some yummy pizza! 🙂
    Caz x

    1. Thank you Caz! Haha, it is a pretty good reason to go get some pizza 😀

  2. Japan ?? so jealous!!! Heard few people say greatest showman good.

    1. We’re so excited to go!! We’ve been wanting to go for so many years 😀
      It’s an okay movie. The songs and visuals are really amazing, especially on the big screen. But the plot is pretty predictable.

  3. OMG Japan girl, I know you are going to love it. Japan is also on my travel bucket list, it’s so incredible. xx

    1. I’m so thrilled we’ve finally gotten around to planning our trip there!! I hope you manage to see it one day too! ?

  4. Congratulations on your award, and 2400 readers! I couldn’t jump out of a plane or bungee jump. It’s not so much that I have a fear of heights, but a fear of falling ;):)

    1. Thank you so much Margaret! Haha, I’m the same. I love being high up and observing the scenery. But jumping off somewhere high seems a little too frightening ?

      1. See, I knew I wasn’t the only one with a fear of falling 😉

  5. Japan here you come! I can’t wait to see all of the documentation you come back with. I remember reading Memoirs of a Geisha in college (which I would highly recommend you read if you haven’t already) and being so captivated by the intricate beauty of the culture. They really value beauty. The photo of the pizza was unnecessary and has only served to make me hungry again although I literally just ate. Asshole lol.

    1. I’m so excited to go! I plan to take a million photos and maybe some videos. That’s reminded me to buy another battery and memory card!
      Hahaha, the pizza was totally necessary! I was craving it at the time, but since writing the post, I’ve managed to already have pizza again ??

      1. Oh yeah, video would be great. I bet you can do some really cool stuff with it; you’re so creative. I was watching so many videos on how to make great travel videos before my Thailand trip last year.

  6. Your trip to Japan sounds exciting! I’m sure there will be posts to follow ;). I’m loving Taylor as well at the moment!

    1. I’m so excited to go! I’m just waiting for May to appear at this point!
      Taylor has a knack for making the catchiest songs ?

  7. Congrats on the award and 2400 followers! I hope you have a really great time in Japan!

    1. Thank you so much Haya! It’s not till May, but we’re so excited for the trip!! 😀

  8. Congratulations on 2400 followers – that is huge! And I’m excited about your trip to Japan! Hope you have a blast 🙂

  9. End Game is my current favorite song too! I absolutely love it, mostly because ed sheeran is in it but ohwell ? xx

    1. It’s so good! Haha, I actually liked it even more once I found out Ed was in it 😀

  10. I loved the greatest showman! The songs are so great too and Japan! That’s so cool! Can’t wait to see some photos of your trip xx

    1. It was a really fun movie! Haha, we’re so excited to go, but we still have to wait for so long ?

  11. Girl, you’ve surpassed me! I’m at 2340 or something like that. You’ll be at 5000 in no time. ?

    1. I have?? Haha, my numbers have been growing quite a bit lately! 5000 may be achievable, but it’s still crazy to think about 😀

  12. Thanks for the nomination 🙂 I think 5000 is totally doable for you!
    I need to go listen to that song, haven’t heard it yet but I love Ed and Taylor 🙂

    1. You’re welcome Sarah! Haha, my blog is growing faster than I can keep up with. We’ll see what happens 😀
