The Versatile Blogger Award

The lovely Alissa (the fashionista and brains behind storybehindthecloth.com) nominated A Lot on Your Mind a while back for a Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you so much for thinking of me and your continuous support and kindness is greatly appreciated!

Story Behind The Cloth is a fantastic fashion blog which focuses on the story and meaning behind what we wear. Alissa has so many wonderful ideas and I strongly urge you to go read her blog right now. Particularly her thoughts on ‘The Spectrum of Truth – Is Truth Really Black and White?’ in which she opens up a theoretical discussion about what truth is and relates this to colour. She talks about the ambiguity versus necessary properties of colours whilst suggesting that there can be both subjective and universal truths in fashion, demonstrated in how we style ourselves. A very interesting and different philosophical perspective. On her blog she also has a series of posts a Colour Psychology Questionnaire and the results found, which relates to this.

Versatile-Blogger-Award

Blogger awards are a fun way for bloggers to show appreciation for other bloggers and their content. Blogging is harder work than it may look like from the outside, so it means the world when we are shown in any way that we are appreciated! The Versatile Blogger Award celebrates high quality, unique, and loving content. When nominated, the blogger can choose to accept the nomination and pass it on to 15 bloggers that they believe deserve a nomination as well.

The rules to accept this award are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link their blog. There are millions of blogs out there, and somebody chose yours!
  2. Nominate 15 bloggers to keep spreading the appreciation.
  3. Share 7 facts about yourself.

Seven Facts about Alice from A Lot on Your Mind:

  1. I love music. Although I can’t play any instruments. I did get a ukulele for Christmas so I hope to learn how to play that soon! My preference is more in the genre of rock and indie rock with my favourite artists/bands being Jack White, The Beatles, and Camera Obscura, to name a few. But I’m also listening to some more Metallica nowadays and going to see Foo Fighters in June.
  2. I’m into bullet journalling, and have also tried to take up hand lettering. I’m always trying to practice my cursive handwriting!
  3. I’m trying to take more time to self-reflect. I lack confidence and constantly doubt the work I do therefore I’m trying to focus on my strengths and build my weaknesses. I recently took the VIA survey (an established Positive Psychology tool) to find out my character strengths. My top five strengths are:

Go take this survey to find out your strengths and let me know what you got!

4. I’m vegan. For the animals and for the planet. I try to be compassionate to all living things. I slip up very rarely and I still have a lot to learn (beauty products-wise) but I could never go back. I wasn’t sure whether to include this but it’s part of who I am.

5. I didn’t know what I wanted to do for my career until I came to university. That’s why I chose a combined honours degree. I just knew I loved psychology and philosophy. I feel like time flies by from when you leave school and you have to figure it all out so quickly.

6. In regards to fashion (how could I not include this), I’d describe my style as classic and a bit girly. I am trying to wear more skirts and dresses and I would be so happy wearing a top and cardigan, a skirt, ballet flats, and a small cross-body bag – keeping it simple!

7. I’m a massive night owl!

  1. Thank you so much for the beautiful and kind things you said about my blog!! 😊💕

    I really enjoyed reading your facts!
    Your character strengths are absolutely beautiful, and though i understand that immense feeling of self-doubt, i can’t see any true reason for you to feel that way! You’re a wonderful person, full of care and inspiration to give, and i’m so happy to be getting to know you as a new friend!

    I tried the VIA Survey and my top 5 came out to be Fairness, Curiosity, Kindness, Honesty, and Love of Learning. I do think that some of my answers were coming from just how i’ve been feeling in this particular time in my life (Zest ranked last, for instance..)… But it was a lot of fun, and very insightful!

    I’ve been really wanting to look into veganism more…I respect that lifestyle so much!

    I love that classic-girly-slightly-minimalistic style! I feel that look has a sense of resolve to it. It appears subtly powerful, and sweetly confident.

    • You’re very welcome!

      Thank you so much 😊 that’s so sweet of you to say! It’s so lovely to be friends with you too! I find you are so hard working and determined and always so kind to everyone!

      Those are amazing character strengths! Perhaps they all go hand in hand with each other in some way? Which strengths do you feel are most important to you? And I agree, reports like these can depend on things such as mood or circumstance. Maybe you can take it again at a later date and see if they’ve changed?

      Ooh you should! It’s also a bit of a fun challenge to find out new ways of cooking e.g. how to replace eggs in cakes! If you ever have any questions feel free to ask me 😊

      Yes I do prefer a more minimalist style. I tend to stick to black and white, or navy, and pink colours. But in relation to my confidence, I’m trying to wear more bright colours such as red.

      Kind regards, Alice
