My third blog nomination! Thanks for everything bloggers :)

Before I say anything regarding the nomination, Leo the penguin decided to play on my laptop! He probably thought I wasn’t going to notice what he posted :p.


Fellow bloggers are being extremely kind to me :). I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Out of the well. Check out her blog, it is an awesome blog full of inspiration and helpful posts! I will accept this award (as well as the first two I was nominated for), because I want to promote other blogs, and thank everyone for their support. I don’t know if I’ll accept more, as I don’t want to feel like I’m spamming, so we’ll see. But, it makes me so happy that other bloggers like to read what I have to say and feel inspired by my posts. My objective is to inspire others. Thank you very much for everything! Now onto the best part, the questions, the answers, and my nominees.

What are five passions you have?



-Drinking tea


-Watching Lord of the Rings, Titanic and Jurassic Park on a monthly basis


What are the top three things on your bucket list?

-Publish my novel

-Visit Europe, New Zealand and Australia

-Build a library like the one in Beauty and the Beast


What is your favourite book and why?

Lord of the Rings. I love Tolkien’s work, but I have to pick The Lord of the Rings. It has helped me escape my reality and motivated me to write my novel, because nothing is impossible when you write Fantasy. I like to think Tolkien actually visited Middle-Earth and that Middle-Earth does exist, because he wrote in such detail that it made me believe.


Who is your favourite author and why?

J.R.R Tolkien, because his eloquent way of writing and the ability to bring the characters and story to life, made me fall in love with his work. After him comes the works of Stephen King, Susan Moody, J.K. Rowling, C.S Lewis, and Jane Austen,


What is your favourite movie and why?

Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Titanic and Jurassic Park. Well, I like a lot of movies, but those are the ones I watch the most. I have to admit I love LOTR more than The Hobbit. Each movie gives me hope, inspiration and an escape from reality. LOTR has a bit of everything, Titanic is a love and tragic story, and Jurassic Park…well, who doesn’t love dinosaurs? I would love to have a pet Velociraptor. 


Do you have a good memory?

Thankfully, I have lots of good memories. I remember one Christmas, my grandparents joined us for our Christmas Eve dinner. My sister and I were so young and we wanted to give them something. Instead of asking my parents for money, we decided to wrap our favourite stuffed animals and gave them to them. You know me by now, I love stuffed animals, and if I give a stuffed animal as a gift, you know you’re in my extremely good list! I remember the look on their faces, they were genuinely happy! I will never forget that night. Unfortunately, my grandma passed away in 2007 and my grandpa passed away in May of last year.


Do you remember your dreams?

Yes, I definitely do. Sometimes I remember most details, but I remember the overall scenario. My dreams play an important role in my inspiration to continue writing my novel. Sometimes my dreams are so vivid, I have a hard time distinguishing them from reality. It also doesn’t help that I can lucid dream :p


Have you ever kept a journal?

Yes! When I was little I used to write my anecdotes in the form of a fantasy story. I did it as a way to prevent others from reading my journal/diary :p.


What is your best quality?

I’m a positive person.


Do you have any pets?

Sadly, no. I don’t have time to care for any. My last one was a pet hamster named, Viggy Sidney. I’ve talked about him on this blog 🙂


What is your MBTI personality type?

I took the test and my results were: ENFJ. So according to the results, this is me:

In general, ENFJs are charming, warm, gracious, creative and diverse individuals with richly developed insights into what makes other people tick. This special ability to see growth potential in others combined with a genuine drive to help people makes the ENFJ a truly valued individual. As giving and caring as the ENFJ is, they need to remember to value their own needs as well as the needs of others.

Overcoming my fear of bugs…as told by gifs

I saved a bug today and threw it outside…or so I thought (read HERE) .  Well here’s how it went, as told by GIFs. Credit for the GIFs goes to: and


1) I asked myself, why me, and why my room?

2) I wasn’t afraid, but I still cried a little inside. I knew I had to overcome this and be done with it.

3) So, I masterminded a plan and attacked…I mean I trapped the bug in a bag

4) I thought I had trapped it and went outside to release it, but when I came back I saw it on the wall again. I was crushed (okay, I’m exaggerating).

5)) I was mostly confused. I thought for sure it was in the bag I used. What the heck, bug?

6) But I just went “whatever” and didn’t let it get to me

7) I realized I finally overcame my fear of bugs! I guess it helped the bug didn’t bite.

8) In the end, I did a little celebration dance

❤ ❤ ❤ Love, Ellie ❤ ❤ ❤


My very first 2 blog nominations!

The very awesome and kind Jenni has nominated for 2 blog awards. I am extremely humbled and grateful for these nominations, Jenni! She makes me laugh with her posts and is a very inspiring blogger. Pay her a visit, you won’t regret it :). Here are the two awards I’ve been nominated for:


The One Lovely Blog Award by belsbror


The Dragon Loyalty award by markbialczak

I’d like to thank Jenni, of course, and the creators of these awards :). It is my first time doing this, so I hope I wrote this post correctly :p. Before I post my nominees, I must provide 7 random facts about myself. Ready?

1) I cannot write without Enya’s music playing in the background.

2) I watch the movies Lord of the Rings, Titanic and Jurrasic Park at least once a month.

3) I cannot live without tea.

4) I came up with the name for my main character (in the book I’m writing) while in the bathroom.

5) I masterminded a plan to run from home and sort of succeeded at the age of 2 (mum caught me before I could cross the street! Poor mum!)

6) One night while babysitting, the family’s cat brought in a LIVE mouse. I had to chase the cat, then grabbed him and threw him (gently) outside. They still tell the story to everyone :p. It was a funny experience.

7) When I was younger, I wrote my diaries using a fantasy format. I did this in case anyone ever read them :p. So, a trip to the bakery would be disguised as a detective story.


Now, onto the nominations! But before I write them, I’d also like to thank Robert Downey Jr and Leonardo DiCaprio for helping me…okay, fine, I’ll stop daydreaming :p

I would like to nominate the following blogs to the 2 awards. I wish I could nominate all, but can only do up to 10…so I’ll nominate 11 :p. I’m  going to play rule-breaker for today :p. These bloggers have been very kind to me!
