First warning, this post is going to be a long one, I hope inspiring though.
Today this little blog of ours and our own little corner on the blogosphere is clocking two.
I will be sharing a Mani Monday post, an award I received from the amazing Mary of Fairy make-up tales and of course my blogiversary little speech.
so, shall we begins?

My nails for this week are mint blue, I am currently in love with this colour since it bring me memories of beautiful Greek beaches water and its also kind of serene.
The nail polishes used to create this are:
1.Mavala Blue mint 181.
2.MD selective cobalt blue.
3.Erre Due base coat and top coat.
I have been request by many of you to share nail posts and I also wanted to but I always got cut up in a lot of things.
I will try to post more nails, hope you like this one.
I am falling for Mavala nail polishes so much lately, are you a fan or have you even used them before?

Now on to the blog award.
A very heartfelt thank you to Mary for the lovely award and as you might all know all awards come with specific rules.
This one comes with a bunch of questions I will respond to below.
1. What led you to start blogging?
I am a big fashion and beauty lover, I used to follow a lot of fashion blogs years back till I decided to create my own Polyvore account to create my outfit sets and two years ago I decided it was time I joined this community.
Firstly to document my love and passion and then to meet and network with people of the same interest.
2.What is the theme of your blog?
My blog is all about things I love that is fashion, beauty, fitness and encouraging.
I blog about my personal outfit, fashion trends, beauty products and reviews, my races and fitness advices, my aim is to take the blog to another level by graduating step by step to focus exclusively on 5 subjects.
Fashion, Personal Outfit, Beauty reviews and advices,Fitness/Healthy eating, street style fashion soon and of course some random posts in between.
3.Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration from God's divine work first of all, the fashion media, the blogging community and the people and things around me.
4. Do you plan the content of your blog in advance?
I usually do plan ahead since I personally am a freak when it comes to planning.
I plan must of my post on a blog note I own, I research some beauty tips and advises, read about them and also when it comes to beauty reviews I like to take my time and use the product until I feel I can honestly state my opinion without misleading my readers or misjudging the product.
For fashion trends, it doesn't take much time since my fashion radar are always on and my outfits are never planned for a blog post, they are what I wear on my daily routine.
My fitness posts comes from my experience as a competing championship runner, that get millions of tips and advices from my coach, nutritionist, physiotherapist and yoga instructor.
5. Do you have new ideas for your blog?
I am always on the hunt for something new for the blog.
It help me grow as an individual and I already have some great ideas, you will hopefully see manifest in the near future.

6. How much time do you spend on your blog?
I spend at least three hours daily on the blog.
It mostly depend on the period and how busy my days are at the specific time.
7.What is the best time for you to be creative?
I am a night owl, I feel super creative at night when everyone is sleeping and it all quiet.
8. What will you like people to know about you?
I am a believer, a multitasking, I can't be satisfied with doing nothing and I strongly believe we are all made for greatness, all we need is to put the effort required.
I am 25, a registered speech therapist,  and I am working towards my masters degree, I find the human brain super fascinating and I am planning to do my PhD on how to deal with communication disorders after a brain injury/cancer and accidents.
9. What are you hobbies?
As I said I am a Jack of all trade kind of person, my hobbies are running, reading books/magazines, watching my favourite series online, I used to love puzzle but I kind of stop, music I am a choir, travelling/ meeting new people and also blogging of course.
That's all about the award, I was asked to award other blogs too, but since you are all equally appreciated I will like to award you all.
Feel free  answer the same questions and to link up your post in the comment box.
Thank you one again Mary for the award.
