Very Inspiring Blogger Award, Bouquet of Three Award and Virtual Vegan Potluck Voting!

I am very grateful to Adventures in my Head for honouring me with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award

3. Post 7 interesting things about yourself

  3. I share my house with lots of fur and feather babies.
  4. As a teenager, I was absolutely obsessed with Eminem and wrote Poppy Mathers as my name on my school work books!
  5.  When I was 17, I spent a month alone in Ghana investigating the Police force for violence towards street children.
  6. I used to be one of the ‘cool kids’ but now I’m a geek and proud!

  1. You are one amazing chica!! What a huge and loving heart you have. Congratulations on your well deserved awards. I don’t have to tell you how cool it is to be listed among some of my very best blogging friends and their incredible blogs.

    • Poppy says:

      You’re so kind, thank you! You all deserve the recognition for putting very special stuff out into the big wide world! Happy birthday again!

  2. Thanks Poppy! That was sweet of you, and congrats on your award! 🙂

  3. Congrats girl! I can’t believe you rented your first flat when you were 16. That’s impressive! When I was 16 I didn’t even have my driver’s license and had to have my parents drive me to my part-time job working in a snack bar at a park. I made $3.35 per hour – certainly not enough to rent my own apartment! Thank you so much Poppy for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You’re such a sweetheart girlfriend!! And by the way, I don’t see you as a geek at all!! Celeste:)

    • Poppy says:

      Thank you and congrats to you also!
      Haha yes I didn’t have the most conventional childhood, all great learning though! Although I didn’t get my driver’s license until I was 20 – we can’t have it all I guess!
      Thanks for not seeing me as a geek haha! ❤ 🙂

  4. Congratulations Poppy!!! I have to check out your nominees. 😀
