I have recently (or to be entirely honest, not so recently any more...) received two new blog awards, and to show my massive gratitude I'm making this quite teeny post. By the way, both awards have the same rules, so obviously I'm not going to double these here.
Anyhow, for a start I need to thank Virgit from Preppy Fashionist for the award set she has given me. Thank you, sweetheart!

And here are the rules for this and also the next award:
- Thank the person who sent you the award and add the link to her/his blog (done!);
- Write seven random things about yourself;
- Give the award to other 15 bloggers you love and tell them.

I guess you have already read too many facts about me lately but oh well, here it comes again:
- I don't believe in such thing as "love at first sight", I'm a realist.
- My taste in music can be seen here (feel free to add me if you also have an account!).
- My favourite TV shows right now are Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, The Secret Circle and The Vampire Diaries but together with E. I also watch Jersey Shore (ironically of course) and The Walking Dead.
- I almost always watch Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game, The Secret Circle and The Vampire Diaries only while working out on my running machine.
- When I start cleaning my house everything must be perfect and I don't stop until it actually is.
- I disliked sports when I was a child but now I'm in love with workout.
- I'm not a fan of too childish and naive people.

Additionally I want to thank sweet Lyosha from Inside and Outside who gave me The Versatile Blogger award some time ago. I'm very grateful and happy to have it.

This time I'm not going to write seven random things about myself but I am going to show you seven random photos of me and my life. These photos originate from year 2006 and are chronologized (I - 16.03; II - 13.04, with American cocker spaniel Jenny who lives with my parents; III - 16.04; IV - 05.06; V - 15.07, in beautiful Norway; VI - 20.08; VII - 23.12, in front of my previous car). Enjoy! :)

And here are some (even exactly 15!) great blogs which receive The Versatile Blogger award from me... 
and guess what, guys?

By the way, you still have the chance to let me know about your questions for my upcoming questions and answers post. Don't be shy! Several of you suggested I should make a separate post to collect your questions but please, do leave all your questions here in the comments. And of course I thank those who have already forwarded their questions :)


  1. Congrats for the awards, hun. you totally deserve them.
    my questions are:
    What's the craziest thing you ever done? Or would like to do?
    name a designer/brand you would never ever wear and why.

  2. oh and love all the shows you mentioned, i even check out Jersey Shore sometimes, yeah i know shame on me. lol.
    love PPL, love the secret circle- i have a secret crush on Thomas Dekker.
    love Vampire Diaries and the Lying game- i wish i had Elena's legs and Sutton's dream closet.

  3. ah maiken you're always lovely. appreciate it! thank you for the awards, and you will always have award in my heart *lol* ahahaha i'll make the awards for you later ;)

  4. You are the sweetest little Darling Maiken! Thank you for your lovely awards! Feeling so very special and honoured! Kisses, Barbie xxx

    Greetings friend

  8. Hi dear, thank u so much for the lovely awards, you made my day! I'm just a bit confused...are both awards the versatile blogger or is the first one a different award? The pics are amazing in this post, love your jacket!



    1. hey! you're absolutely welcome! :) and yeah, the first one is a different award, to be specific - it seems to be a set of awards (or at least there are three different logos :P)

  9. You are awesome !<3

    xoxo A.

  10. Aww dear thank youu so so much for the awards I'm really flattered to be in your list!! You really made my day and aww those photos of you are beautiful, I like the one with the dog :D
    So here are my questions:
    What's your guilty pleasure?
    Who are your inspirations of blogging?
    What are your pet peeves?
    A place where you would live if you had the opportunity to?
    I hope it's not too much :p

  11. you have a really amazing skin!!! :D

    and your dog so lovely^^


  12. I don't watch any of the same television shoes you do! Congrats on the awards.

  13. oh milline tore üllatus bloggerisse tulles! :) aitäh! sellised asjad teevad muidugi rõõmu! ja meenutavad juba ligi pool aastat draftides seisvaid sarnaseid postitusi.. see on see sama jakk, mida sa praegugi aeg-ajalt kannad? sellisel juhul, hästi teeninud jakk. mul oli kunagi üks teksatagi, mille ma sain vist viiendas klassis ja kandsin kümnendani välja, sest see oli nii mõnus lihtsalt. kannaks siiani, aga ta sai mul sõna otseses mõttes ribadeks kantud. vot siis olin küll natuke kurb. aga see-selleks. mõnus on vahepeal selliseid vanu pilte ka vaadata :) kus see viimane üldsegi tehtud on?

    1. aga siis tuleb nende draftides seisvate postitustega midagi ette võtta ju! ;)
      ja see on tõesti sama jakk, enam-vähem uunikum juba, aga kuna peab ilusti vastu ning on mugav ka, siis ei näe põhjust temast loobumiseks. mõned asjad lihtsalt on sellised.. armsaks saanud :P
      viimane pilt on muide tehtud Marianni vanaema maja hoovis, siin samas Jõgeval, paar tänavat minu majast edasi. ma isegi mäletan päris hästi seda jõulueelset päeva.. fotod on tõesti asendamatud :P

  14. I am definitely not a fan of childish people. Congratulations on the award. The walking dead is on the same channel AMC that features Mad Men, which is my favorite show. I've not yet watched walking dead but have heard great reviews.

  15. once again, beautiful beautiful pictures of you! You're such a natural. I like the black and white ones especially! Is that your doggie, it's such a beauty! And THank you very much for the award Maiken, I am so happy and blessed to have known you through this blogging world. You're so kind and sweet! And it's so fun to know you a little better through the random facts :-) I don't belileve in love at first sight too..haha.


  16. why are you so cool?! congrats on the new awards honey. you deserve all of them!!

  28. What a beautiful photo mix dear! I like that at every single photo your hair is styled differently! Sooo, being a really hair lunatic and seeing how beautiful yours is my question to your "question & answer" post is which products do you use to keep your hair in such a perfect condition?
