Liebster Blog Award… Third episode ^^

Me ^^ hihi! Once again, thank you so much to La Vie Lilloise, who nominated me for my third Liebster Blog Award !!! I’m very happy about that, so once again, thanks to all of you, my very cherished readers; I wouldn’t have been able to make it without you and your always very kind support, expressed both through your Likes & lovely comments :).

Although I have more than 200 WordPress followers now (and I would never thank you, guys, enough for that), and I am therefore not really supposed to write such posts anymore, I will nevertheless answer La Vie Lilloise‘s questions; that’s also a way for you to know me a little bit better 😉

Here are her questions… (and my answers, of course :D!)

  • How long have you had your blog? I started my blog in January this year 🙂


  • How did you get the idea to start a blog? I first wanted to write this blog to share what I was living and experiencing here, in England… but then I realised I really liked blogging and sharing lots of stuff with my lovely readers, so I wanted to share more than this unforgettable and amazing experience! And here I am now… with a lovely (I hope, you’re the only ones who can say, my beauties ;p) lifestyle blog ^^


  • Why did you choose that name for your blog? Such a good question! ON MY WAY is kind of a metaphor regarding LIFE… and especially the “path of life”, if it makes any sense to you :s As my blog is about all things I like (or not ^^) about life, all my little pleasures in life (see question about my blog’s themes… n°5 ^^), I thought this picture of a girl on her way and all she meets and finds in life was quite a good name for my personal blog… something that looked like me 🙂


  • What are your hobbies? What a coincidence! I’ve had this conversation with one of my colleagues this morning :p!!! Well, first of all, I’m an equestrian; I’ve been riding horses since the age of 5 and now I’ve got my own baby (my horse, Oleo) ^^! I also love reading (19th century French and English literature… but my favourite author definitely is Victor Hugo; Les Misérables being my most loved book, it couldn’t be some other way ;p… and you may consequently understand my particular interest in the London musical and in the recently released movie!!!) and listening to music! I LOVE writing this blog (I’m totally addicted to blogging now, and everything it can bring me :)!!!). I am a musical LOVER (it might be one of the reasons why I love the English culture that much ^^) and, I must admit it, a shopaholic :p!!!


  • What is your blog about? My blog’s about EVERYTHING! Travel, Fashion, Cookery, Life, Friendship, People I meet, Musicals, Tv, Music, Literature, Movies… well in a word: LIFESTYLE 😉


  • What’s your favourite dessert? Ohhh! I don’t think I can possibly answer this question! It’s really not fair… I love so many different desserts… Hmmm, I love having a fresh fruit salad but… if I’m being a bit naughtier, I’d say my favourite dessert is the Fondant au Chocolat (I don’t know the translation in English… it would be something like “soft-centered chocolate cake” but it doesn’t sound really good, does it?! :s), or maybe the raspberry & rhubarb crumble :3 See? I can’t pick a favourite :p!


  • An object that never leaves you? My iPod!


  • What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? I have my breakfast 🙂


  • And what’s the last thing you do before going to bed? I brush my teeth (how original ! :p)


  • Your best holiday memory? The first time my father took me to London… that was the beginning of a true LOVE story ^^


  • Any projects for this summer? Work & Horse Riding! And otherwise, I intend to go back to London for a few days and also to Toulouse so that I can meet my lovely Flavie Peticoeur (I interviewed the other day… you can check the corresponding post out over here)

Well, here it is! I think I answered all the questions 😉

I hope you appreciated this little post, my dearies, which probably allowed you to know the girl behind the blog a bit better 😉

With this, I wish all of you a nice Monday evening and don’t forget…

Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

❤ Liebster Blog Award ❤

Woooow! This is actually really exciting! This is my very first award, my first blog award! How cool is that!

Well, anyway, I’ve been nominated by , who wrote:On My Way:  Lovely style of writing, very intelligent.” What can I say now, but… THANK YOU SO MUCH! This is really nice of you to say :)!

To be honest with you, I had never heard about this award before… but I think it’s a very nice thing to do as an award is always a kind of acknowledgement. So it means a lot, at least as far as I’m concerned, to know some people really like my blog and the posts I write :). Thank you SO MUCH for that, guys! ★


The recipient must post 11 fun facts about themselves

The recipient must also answer 11 questions created by the award giver

The recipient must give the award to 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers and post 11 questions for them to answer

These 11 bloggers must be told they have been given the award

They will in turn pass the award on to 11 new bloggers of their choice (no tagging back the award giver)

  • 11 facts about me… 

1. I used to have my 15 minutes of craziness.

2. I am a TV series and musical addict!

3. I could read Les Misérables over & over again!

4. I apparently hold my cutlery the wrong way round.

5. I used to pronounce ‘pyjama’ like ‘pigeon’!

6. Still can’t pronounce ‘law’ properly :s (and lots of other words… but I’m not worried, it will come ;)!)

7. I can’t stand wearing two different socks! I like when everything’s perfectly coordinated! :p

8. Cookery Books and Magazines are my guilty pleasure!

9. I Love Teddy Bears – I’ve got a beautiful collection (sorry, I can’t tell you how many! Maybe… Probably TOO MANY :p!)

10. I may be a bit clumsy sometimes…

11. … that’s why my nickname is “Catastrophe Marie”! (Don’t Laugh!)

1. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

I often compare myself to a “revolution”, as I am passionate, determined & always have that kind of “rage” inside of me. I’m the kind of person who’s always pushing through the hardships and who wants to do what’s best for others. 😉

2. What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?

Being away from my family, I think.

3. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are (why)?

Between 20 & 22, which is not a big difference with my actual age… but that’s the age people usually give me regarding how I look but also the maturity I’ve got thanks to all the not-really-good things life has brought my family lately.

4. What does ‘The American Dream’ mean to you?

Dreaming BIG!

5.What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?

It was the day my dad brought our little black cat at home (well, he was little at the time, but he is really MASSIVE today :s!)

6. What are three moral rules you will never break?

1) Respecting everybody (whoever they are) / 2) Never eating horse meat! / 3) Always doing the best to forgive people

7. What is your most prized possession?

My horse!

8. What has been the most terrifying moment of your life thus far?

When somebody tried to kidnap me at a fun fair when I was little.

9. What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?

When my best friend (at time, because apparently, he doesn’t accept this term anymore!!!) stood up for me when I was being bullied in middle school.

10. What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in the last year?

Always smile to people who can’t & be nice to everyone even if some people are rude (it’s not a reason for us to be rude as well!)

11.What one ‘need’ and one ‘want’ will you strive to achieve in the next twelve months?

‘One need’ : I need to know that my family is gonna be alright when I’m gone, when I leave France for good to come & live in England.

‘One want’ : I want to “look after” my friendships, whether they are old ones (Thibault, Guillaume, Amélie, Maëlle, Nadia, Pauline, Abichoupette) or burgeoning ones (Melody, Fay, Jamie)
