Liebster blog award

I’m surprised that I was nominated, I’ve only been blogging for just under two months but I’m very happy too. Thank you notsoperfectstudent and wandabelinofficial for tagging me in this award.


Not so perfect student is a student blogger who blogs insightful blog posts about a variety of topics from motivational quotes to recipes, it’s a wonderful blend of blog genres. Wanda Belin runs a blog about her faith (Christianity) and how to draw support from your belief. Please check out both lovely ladies.

A blogger who I love to read their blog posts is Anja Ge  who blogs about fashion, thrifting and how to set up a blog. She combines her OOTD posts with other topics from the latest tv shows she’s enjoyed to what she has been up to recently. I love how effortless her style is and sleek her blog looks.

1. What’s your favorite book that has been turned into a movie?

Pride and Prejudice if you mean favourite book in general that has a movie adaptation but if we are talking about favourite book and favourite book adaption Jaws for sure. The movie was so much better than the book which spent far too much time dwelling on marital troubles and not enough time on the shark that was terrorizing the area.

2. What inspired your blog name?

I was planning on starting a youtube channel and my friend threw out ‘roadtobecomingroda’ because I was talking about how I’d like to chronicle my journey of self discovery. I thought it sounded brilliant and so within a couple of days I had set up my blog and the rest is history.

3. What’s your life motto or quote?

Just keep swimming- Dory from Finding Nemo

As simple as it is, we all sometimes need to remember that as bad as things may look, they can get better.

4. At what time do you love blogging the most?

When I feel inspired/have great pictures. My blog posts tend to be photo heavy because what I blog the most about is my outfits. And honestly, what I like the most about fashion blogs are the photos included of the outfits/items/trends being discussed by the blogger.

5. What accomplishments do you strive to make each day?

No idea, pray 5 times a day? I don’t have a regular daily goal. My goals change depending on what i feel is the most pressing. I guess my main goal is to work towards getting a first in my degree and getting into graduate medicine. Also, being a better person whether that means being more patient or more helpful.

6. Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now?

As a doctor, i’A.

7. What makes you happy?

Music and books. I love listening to music whilst I’m reading and honestly, the only thing I will miss from my long commute to university is that I won’t have 90 minutes a day forced reading time. I just don’t find myself able to concentrate unless I’m without wifi. With music, this year I went to 4 concerts. I went from having gone to like 4/5 musical events in 5 years to going to 4 concerts in like a two month period. Mad, right?

8. If you could give someone a fat cheque who would that be?

My mum, she deserves it for raising me.

9. Fashion or food? Which would you prefer ?

Fashion for sure. Who needs food when you can look good? 😉 As far as things that interest me, I find fashion so much more interesting and would rather invest more money in looking good than eating well. Guess I have shit priorities.

10. What are your plans for your blog?

Plan 1: blog more regularly- stick to my schedule of a blog post every Tuesday/Wednesday and a post on Sunday once a week. So I post this on Thursday instead. Oops.

Plan 2: Improve my blog layout as it is quite basic at the moment and experiment with my style.

Plan 3: To make blogger friends.

Plan 4: start my #hijabichats series and do more general fashion discussions, I tend to do OOTDS so regularly because they are more easy. Also I need to do more installments in my ‘way to style’ series. I have a lot of ideas written down.

    1. Thank you! I don’t think I’ve seen that, is the pride and prejudice mini series better than the Emma mini series? I love that there are so many adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels x
