Blog of the year award 2012!

Happy new year to all of you bloggers and all of my followers! I hope your year 2012 was as successful as mine and that the next year will be the same productive, creative and inspiring as the last one. I really did enjoy the christmas holidays so far and I could use all the time to finish some of my projects. There are still some days left for me until going back to work. I definitely want to use this time to relax and to gather some energy to be even more productive until the next holidays.Blog of the Year Award 1 star thumbnail

I was very surprised to visit my Blog yesterday and to find out that I was nominated by http://cookingforthechemicallysensitive.wordpress.com/ for my first Blog of the Year 2012 Award! I’ve started blogging four months ago and this award is definitely a huge motivation to continue blogging and sharing my experiences with all of you. Hopefully there is a chance for me to receive next year a second Blog of the Year Award!

My two nominees for the Blog of the Year Award are

http://thekitchensgarden.com/

http://borschtandbabushkas.com/

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

  1. Select another blog or other blogs who deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award;
  2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award;
  3. Include a link back to this page Blog of the Year 2012’ Award at the Thought Palette and provide these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
  4. Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
  5. You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
  6. As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

There are stars to collect! Yes, there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the 1 star award, and every time you are given the award by another blog, you can add another star! There are total of 6 stars to collect.

You can check out your favorite blogs, and even if they have already been given the award by someone else, you can still award them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

My second award… The Reality Blog Award!

reality-blog-awardIt’s been only a week that I got my first blog award here on wordpress and this week I already received my second award. This time I need to thank Tonette of tonettejoycefoodfriendsfamily.wordpress.com for nominating me for the Reality Blog Award. It is very motivating to receive such a special award.

Here are five questions to be answered for this award:

1.If you could change one thing, what would you change?

I wished there would be no borders between countries and everyone was free to travel,work and to live where he wants.

2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be?

I would repeat my high school time, to be more ambitious about my future plans this time.

3. What is one thing that really scares you?

To loose myself in a monotone job not being able to change my situation.

4. What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you’ll be able to complete it?

I’m dreaming of starting my own clothing collection, it’s still a long way there, but I’m planning to complete it.

5. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?

I would like to be my partner for one day to understand the way he feels and to understand who it feels to be in a relationship with me.

Here are some of my nominees for the Reality Blog Award:

Hannah of Hannah West Illustration

Munaiba of Sewjournal

Caroline of The Patterned Plate

The first snow and the first award!

one_lovely_blog_award

What a nice week! The temperature decreased, the winter season did obviously arrive and we had the first snow here in Berlin. The snow did not last long, but I’m sure there will be a lot of snow the next days and I promise to make some winter photographies for you.

I have also received my first blog award! Many thanks to Samantha of Food Flavor Fascination for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! I did not expect this at all.

7 random things about me!

  1. I was not that good at school! I loved to read and to write but I was pretty bad in all the other subjects.
  2. When I was young I always was the leader of the whole clique. Now that I’m older I prefer not to lead and rather to stay in the background. Maybe that has also to do with my convenience.
  3. I love hip hop music! Despite all the prejudices and clichés about hip hop music I always loved most of the hip hop artists and songs. I also listen to other music but my hip hop music collection is quite big. Hip hop is more versatile than many think.
  4. I love the color white! As long as I can remember white was always my favorite color and when I have to buy something most of the times I go for the white version of it. This applies to fashion as well as to furniture and other stuff.
  5. I’m not a city guy! There is really not a lot of things that attract me in the city. I prefer being in the nature and creating my own day rather than being distracted by all what the big city life offers.
  6. I believe in the good heart of a person even though I’m not religious in the sense of being part of a confession. That’s why I don’t understand people being ignorant and living in their own little reality discriminating people who differ from the norm of their own circle of friends.
  7. I would do anything and go anywhere for my beloved darling Mithun. I don’t care a lot about most things but when it comes to love and relationship I’m a full-hearted person willing to move mountains.

Here are the lovely blogs and bloggers that I am nominating for the One Lovely Blog Award!

Kristen of Borscht and Babushkas

Cecilia of The kitchen garden

Lakshmi of Lakshmi loves to shop

Danny of Danny Mansmith

EmilyAnn Frances of An attic in Brooklyn

Danny of gotasté
