First of all THANK YOU to everyone who has followed my blog! It feels great to have your support (plus I like validation). I’ve also massive restructured my blog’s layout, I hope you like it!

Shoutout to thisisoneforthebooks for nominating me!

Anyway, I’m only one month into blogging and I’m already winning awards for my superior writing skills. *cough cough*

Ahem, anyway. Onto the acceptance speech…

When did you start blogging?

This blog was created about a month ago. I can’t count how many times before that I tried to start a blog.

Why did you start blogging?

I want to write for a living. I want to create. I love travel, crafts, writing, adventure, fashion, shopping, philosophy. I’ve been bored for so long. There are days upon days that I have sat on my computer, mindlessly watching YouTube videos, dreaming about how I want my life to be more exciting. Well, now that I have a blog, I’m not just creating content I’m creating my new life. Having a place to share my experiences motivates me to do more of what I love. Not to mention, it’s a memorial of all my experiences and my work. It took effort to write this post, and when I hit publish I’ll always have a record of that.

What is your blog about?

Well, many things.

I have a lot of shopping/OOTD/style/haul content coming up. Also, I’ll be writing travel diaries, sharing my learning experiences, budgeting tips, and actual costs of travel. Next, I love creating, whether it’s a small DIY project or a full-on sewing excursion. Those posts are coming up as well, but of course, I can’t release all the goodies at once. Finally, there’s always a random element in me. I could blog about food, or hair, personal fitness, philosophy, politics, school life, mental health, whatever I see fit at the time.

I am Knurly and here is my life.

What’s your favourite quotation?

What’s your favourite holiday destination?

I don’t have one yet! But I do have a hard-on for California. I want to go back there, it’s so beautiful.

Are you the type of person that meticulously researches a holiday trip or do you just go with the flow?

I am the type of person who has lists about all my different lists. What do you think? I’m a boy scout, a strategist, a Lord Varys. No plan survives first contact with the enemy? Bullshit, no enemy survives first contact with my plan.

What means of travel do you enjoy the most?

Car! I wish I could drive everywhere, but there’s this giant water hole between the USA and most of the world, so that’s impossible. I will say, I do not like being on a train all day because I get motion sickness. As for planes, they are a necessary evil.

What’s your favourite colour and why?

In chronological order: Purple, Teal, Black, Lime green. I was obsessed with purple as child, don’t ask why, I don’t know. Teal became my new obsession after reading a book about a fashionista who loves teal. Black matches my soul. Lime green is underappreciated and misused.

What are your hobbies?

RE: what is your blog about + a lot of sitting on my laptop. ALTHOUGH, I will mention that I really want to pick up two new hobbies: reading and programming. I want to read more, but I never make it a priority.


What’s your favourite type of music?

I listen to mostly alternative rock and alternative pop, but mostly rock. Admittedly, I’m not very adventurous in my music taste. I have listened to the same few artists repeatedly for years at this point. I just don’t care that much.



I nominate (to answer the questions above, if you so choose):

A Walk and a Lark

If I follow you and you’re not here – my bad! I’ve been scrambling to get a post together! School has been very busy.

  1. Merci for the nomination Knurly! I am rubbish at doing these kinds of awards but I really appreciate the shout out! 🙂

  2. The gif of Jennifer Lawrence.. I’m dying 😂 felt the same way when I got my first award. Thanks for doing the tag, I enjoyed getting to know more about you. And as for why you started your blog, I can’t even tell you how much that resonates with me. When I’m procrastinating on reading, I’m on YouTube wishing my life were more fun and creative. Well, now having an outlet it feels soo good!!
