i’ve finally emerged from a couple of intense weeks of uni study + exams, to find that two great blogs i admire had nominated me for some blogging awards. the liebster award is a way to acknowledge new bloggers and introduce them to more readers in the blogging community. so firstly, a huge thank you to “addicted to the sweet life“… i am genuinely flattered and honoured!
the rules of the liebster award are:

- add the award badge to your blog (in a post, or as a widget)
- answer the questions posed by the person who nominated you
- nominate 11 other bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and provide links to their blogs.
- create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
- list these rules in your post
- notify all nominees, and give them a link back to your post
11 questions nominated by “addicted to the sweet life” for me
1. why do you blog?
i started inlovewithbrunch about one year ago because i was feeling creatively dry in all aspects of life… i had stopped singing, songwriting and painting due to work and uni commitments, and i also needed to get my butt into a more active gear. so with the incentive of a delicious meal at the other end, my husband + i started #walkandbrunch’ing to various cafes around melbourne, after which i would therapeutically write about our experience + how much we’d enjoyed the food + coffee. in the process, i’ve discovered a passion for writing and creating again, found an online community of creative + like-minded people… and ironically have started singing + songwriting again. the human heart + mind has an amazing capacity for juggling commitments when it has a passion for it!
2. what is your favourite food?
well it would definitely have to be brunch! ;-) my favourite dishes would definitely be french toast or baked eggs.
3. what is your idea of a ‘perfect’ day?
