The Versatile Blogger Award

In the midst of a crazy busy month, I found out that Goca from the Moj Spaun blog has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award! Yippie! Thank you Goca! This really made my whole last week feel a bit more special.

As I said, I am experiencing a hectic period of rehearsals, auditions and performances, so unfortunately, I haven't been able to spare some time to publish anything lately. Today I am catching up. While I am happy to announce that I just finished photo shooting new soaps for the upcoming post, I decided to put that one on hold and dedicate entirely my blogging hours for today to this lovely post.

Although I unfortunately did not get the chance to meet Goca in person yet, I feel that she is a great sudsy friend and a person whose posts and soaps I enjoy very much.

So here go the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award according to the Versatile Blogger website:
  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
As I mentioned, I consider Goca to be my great soapy friend and since I had the pleasure of trying several of her soaps, I also wrote about them in two previous posts. One is an interview you can read here and one more post with mention and photos.

To nominate 15 other blogs is quite difficult. There are not many that I love and some of them are on Goca's list as well. Which serves as a proof of quality in my belief so I will leave them. My list in no particular order of preference:

  1. Savon de Mika
  2. The Soap Bar
  3. Iva did it.
  4. Soap Jam
  5. Ko ne voli cipele
  6. Soap and Restless
  7. Magrit Knits
  8. Moj makeup nered
  9. Budi lepa
  10. Jedan frajer i bidermajer
  11. Hleb i lale
  12. Calendula dijaporis
  13. Oil and Butter
  14. Lovin Soap
  15. Pasito a pasito

I always find it challenging to talk about myself cause I can't judge where to begin and where to stop, I typed & random things about myself that others seem to find most amusing and/or interesting or that I haven't yet told to anyone. Here it goes:

  1. I am born ginger head and have never dyed my hair although many people don't believe me.
  2. When I was a kid, I wanted to be the first female James Bond.
  3.  I truly detest snow/winter even on a photo.
  4. I wish to learn many handy skills and the top three on my list are bookbinding, spoon carving and paper making.
  5. I am quite dreading my 30th birthday which is approaching slowly but inevitably.
  6. I really didn't like neither London, Paris or New York and cannot really understand what's all the hype about.
  7. One day I hope to start my own foundation for helping creative musicians to realize their dreams. Till then, I am happy to be a micro sponsor via crowd funding platforms.
That's it folks. I am off to edit some photos and prepare the fire for our first barbecue in 2014. Yum!
