The Liebster Award!

A few days ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Paige from currentlylately.com! You should definitely check her blog out; it’s one of my faves! Thank you for the nomination!



  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gave to you.
  • Nominate at least 5, but no more than 11 bloggers who you think deserve the award.
  • Tell those bloggers you nominated them!
  • Create 11 original questions for the next nominees to answer.




  1. What inspired the name of your blog?
    I was going by ‘hollife’ on my social media for a few months as a mashup of ‘holly’s life’ and I wanted the blog to have positive energy, hence happyhollife. I’m not 100% happy with it (lol) so I might think about changing it in the future.
  2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
    I have always loved writing so it is a natural thing for me to be doing it. I love thinking about new content and creating it and seeing it ready to publish. 
  3. Who is your biggest inspiration?
    I really love Amy Farquhar, who has a YouTube channel and blog. Everything she does is so cute and lovely.
  4. What’s something you couldn’t live without?
    Excluding my husband (sorry Chris), probably my phone. That sounds really millennial but it’s how I take YouTube videos and promote everything. I could definitely run the blog from my phone if all else failed, albeit a little awkwardly as well. Also, it’s just so handy.
  5. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
    I would like to be able to be invisible at will (clothes and all) because I could rob a bank and get away with it. 
  6. What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleeping?
    Around 36 hours – 16 hour flight to Sri Lanka with 14 hours of travelling/waiting either side of that, then we went for dinner and to a show when we got there and everyone was just falling asleep at the table!
  7. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    My dad’s Christmas dinners (I’d be fat but so happy).
  8. What’s your favorite book?
    All the Harry Potters!
  9. What’s your biggest goal in life?
    To be happy with every aspect of it!
  10. Where do you see your blog one year from now?
    I’d like to have 1000 followers (or more!) and I do want to invest in better equipment (lighting, camera) and some more props for pictures. I also want to lose the ‘wordpress’ bit from the URL and be better at keeping on schedule. 
  11. What’s your biggest pet peeve?
    Bigotry and ignorance.
