How exciting! I have been nominated for a virtual blogging award!   I must admit it was one of the nicest things to happen to me this week. Thank you to Ms. Tasniah Talukdar of What I did on Wednesday for making my week special by nominating Zen and the Art of Style for this lovely award.

For those of you not familiar with this award, here is the back ground information, the nominee chooses 11 different bloggers for the award.  (Must be a blog with less than 200 followers), and gives them questions to answer. These 11 chosen bloggers then again nominate further 11 bloggers and give them questions to answer and so on.

My questions to answer are:

1.) How many siblings do you have?  I have one sibling.

3.) New York or London? Really how can a girl chose between two lovely cities? Both!

4.) If you had £10to spend for the rest of your life what would you spend it on? Hmm… if I had around $16 bucks I would spend it on something that had glitter.

5.) Who is your favorite blogger? 101 Cookbooks a recipe journal I have followed her blog for years.  She is an artist who paints pictures with beautiful words and photos.  She makes the reader feel as if we are sitting in her kitchen, sharing a cup of tea and watching her prepare some incredible food.

7.) Any plans for your future ? Vacation to Sarasota, Florida this summer

8.) Who is your role model?  All of my favorite parts of friends and loved ones. It is easy to be inspired by them.

9.) What makes you happy? Creating something beautiful, spending time with family and when I take the time to get off the crazy train of life and slow it down to the pace that is most comfortable for me.

10.)Favorite Season ?  Any that do not involve snow, sleet or ice
