Liebster Award!

Thursday, 7 August 2014

Thank you to Trish McGinty of Reserved For Ruby for nominating me for this award. Now I'm definitely 'New Kid on the blog' but even the fact you considered me gives me hope I am doing something right and on the right track in the blogosphere.

For those of you unfamiliar to the award it is given by Bloggers to Bloggers. This is a platform for bloggers to connect with each other while giving each other a confidence boost in the process.
I will begin by answering some of the questions which are part of the award process.

    USA (Chicago, Il).
4. If you won the lotto, what is the first thing you would do?
    Buy a house.
 5. Why did you start your blog? 
    While I love my job, it doesn't serve me as a creative outlet which is one of the main reasons I started Martina's Mark.
6. Where did you go on your last holiday? 
    Zambia, Africa.
7. What is your favourite shop? 
    Zara or Primark.

      It already has ;)
