sunshinebloggerWow!!! This past month I got nominated twice for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Big thanks to Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews and Alicja from Reel Red Reviews

So apparently the Sunshine Blogger Award is “a chain-letter project designed to honor the bloggers that bring the most sunshine into our lives.” Well I do love to bring sunshine into my followers lives 🙂 The rules of this awards are as follows:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions they set you (I will answer 22 questions)
  • Pick another 11 bloggers (and let them know they are nominated!)

Here are my answers to Drew’s questions
  • 1) Who is your favorite actor? Overall Leonardo DiCaprio, but my favourite action actor is Jason Statham.

  • 4) Do you prefer special editions or are you content with just having a copy of the film? That depends on the film. If a film has a lot of special effects or has a very interesting and profound subject, the special editions is a nice extra.
  • 5) What is your favorite place you have traveled? Tenerife. Culture, nature, beaches and nice restaurants close the beach. Al though Malta is great too, but was a bit too short 
  • 6) What is your favorite place to travel to in your town? I my hometown I’d love to go to the old city centre and the harbour. But the favourite place from the Netherlands is the beach, not the touristic beach like Zandvoort, but the nice and more quiet ones with the dunes.
  • 7) If a genie could grant you one wish, what would it be? To get rid of all my insecurities that holds me back. Or the opportunity to travel in time.
  • 8) If you could have any super power, what would it be? Flying of course! So I can fly to every beautiful destination.

  • 11) What have you learned from being a blogger? Well to write properly in English, still learning though. And that there are more lovely film bloggers like me!
These are my answers to Alicja’s questions
  • 1) What would be your dream job (disregarding worries about pay or scheduling)? To work in the film business in publicity. Or organizing film events and premieres.
  • 2) What are some of your favorite childhood films? Everything Disney. But also An American Tail, Annie, Star Wars.
  • 3) As an ode to Barbara Walters: If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? Since I love the ocean and beach, I would be a palm tree

  • 5) Which whimsical sitcom character do you most relate to? Or, if you’re not a sitcom fan, which character of any genre? That’s a very though question… I don’t have a good answer to this one.
  • 6) What’s the last movie you watched, and was it any good? Last night I watched Mechanic Resurrection with Jason Statham. I thought it was very entertaining and an action with Statham is always enjoyable, not Oscar worthy but good.
  • 7) If you follow the Oscars, what do you think has been the biggest snub of all time? Yeahh I wouldn’t really know about that.. I do follow it kind of, but I don’t give that much value to it..
