And the Winner is…

 

liebsterblogaward-2

 

Thank you. Thank you, you’re all far too kind.

I am so happy to be nominated for the for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Rochelle of Being Chelle, I must admit this was nothing I had expected to receive. Whilst standing in the line for Starbucks, a notification of my nomination came through to my phone.. I was rather shocked.. Is someone out there is really interested in me? I mean me.. Wait, why wouldn’t anyone want to know about me?  In the inevitable words of Sir Kanye West, I am Warhol. I am the #1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. ….Take note.

… I ordered a Frappuccino, wheres my f*cking Frappuccino.

Lets do this.

  2. I am an artist of sorts and enjoy everything creative, whether it be cooking, baking, fine arts, photography, music or literature. I. Love. It. All. Which ultimately makes me a perfectionist.

Look at all of those ‘I am’s.. So bloomin’ repetitive.

Now I nominate Shayananth, Natural489, Jorgie&Patricia & Rachele Cotton.

The questions from Rochelle:

What’s the first thing you think about in the morning?

 Each morning I wake up thinking about how I am going to make my voice heard and better myself more than I had done the day before. Positive thinking equals to a more positive outcome. Think Good Thoughts!

What is your favourite type of food?
  I am a foodaholic, I absolutely love everything but my favourite is probably Creole or Pan Asian… Also Italian, Parisian, my native Jamaican and Creole (Cuban) dishes.. Does that answer the question? 

If the internet didn’t exist and you couldn’t blog, what would you be doing?

 If Sir Tim Bernes-Lee never created the amazing Word Wide Web, I actually don’t know what I would be doing.. Its hard to think of a world without technology when you was born into the digital age.
What is your favourite memory? 

My favourite memory probably was my first ever holiday, I was 5 years old and went to Disneyland Paris. 19 years old and I still go every year since.

What are your hobbies? 

My hobbies include Photography, Graphic design, drawing, baking, exploring and shopping. Ha! 

When was the last time you tried something new? 

The new avocado and chicken sub from Subway. Heaven.

What is happiness to you? 

To me happiness is a journey, a form of discovery in which you are able to be confident and content within oneself.  I am yet to reach that point in my self discovery journey where I feel satisfied and honestly content with myself, but I guess thats why its a journey.

What is the meaning behind your blog name?

 My blog name is actually a merge between my surname, Sanatoro and the topics I write about such as beauty, fashion, photography, DIY, culture, lifestyle etc. I also have Sanatography a Photography blog, which I must admit is in dire need of updating.
Do you speak any other languages?

 When I was younger my grandfather taught me a little Arabic. But I no longer remember enough to uphold a conversation 😦
What is your favourite film?

 I don’t exactly have a favourite film, but it would probably be every Chick-flick, Rom-com and Horror movie under the sun.
What was the last item you purchased? 

The last item I purchased was a refill of my favourite Pink Grapefruit and Burnt sugar perfume by Eyüp Sabri Tuncer in Istanbul a few days ago.

My first shameless promotion

“Without promotion, something terrible happens… Nothing!” –  P.T Barnum

One of my favorite quotes by Barnum, but never has it applied to me as much as it has now.  Creative juices flowing, I decided to stop being selfish with my talents and start getting out there and sharing them. I love creating, experimenting, living, learning and all that good stuff, what better way is there to share your talents than the great WORLD WIDE WEB. I’ve been thinking about creating YouTube videos for a while but was too scared of the possibility of negative reactions from others towards myself, perhaps I was more scared of my own negative thoughts of myself. My phobias of not being adequate enough stopped me from perusing my dreams on many occasions, but NOT TODAY BOO BOOOOO!

My YouTube account is finally LIVE and running (years after conception I must admit) with its first lonely video. A recipe that I had visualized in a dream and had to recreate. Absolutely crazy right? But it is the most genius thing ever. Who would of thought that a snooze would lead to the creation of smooth and luxurious snack/frosting. Yum. Yum. Yum
