The Liebster Award

Sunday 13th April 2014

So I've been a little absent for a couple of weeks now, obviously as a new blogger it's not a great start but I've honestly been dying to get stuck in and I've got so many ideas for blog posts. It's so frustrating that I've not had the time! When I started this blog it really was in preparation for the summer as I knew that's when I'd have some free time and able to get into my stride, blogging frequently and fully enjoying being part of the blogging community. Until then I was hoping to squeeze in a post a week but unfortunately that's not quite been the case. As I'm now just two months away from graduating, it's been hectic trying to balance all my coursework, my job and actually getting two minutes to spend time with my boyfriend, I've not even had time to shop which is really unlike me! 

The other day when I got an email saying that the lovely Phoebe from Phoebe in Wonderland had commented on my blog about nominating me for the Liebster award I was really intrigued. With a little google I soon learned that it was similar to a chain mail and a clever little way of getting to know new bloggers. I thought it sounded like a really sweet idea and I'm so grateful to Phoebe for nominating me as I honestly didn't even think anyone was even reading my blog yet! So let's get stuck in…

The rules are...

1. Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you.
2. Pick 11 people with less than 200 followers to nominate.
3. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
4. Inform your nominees of the award through messaging or a comment on one of their posts.

My answers to Phoebe's questions

Do you watch Youtube Videos, if so who is your favourite YouTuber?

Yes! I am obsessed with Youtube videos and I'm subscribed to so many incredible people but I would have to say my absolute favourite is Estee from Essiebutton, she's just fantastic, I love how charismatic she is, she has a fab sense of humour and never takes herself too seriously. I love her beauty videos but I think I love her vlogs even more with Aslan and of course Reggie!

What is your favourite place to shop?

Well I'd love to say somewhere expensive and trendy but really my absolute favourite is Primark. Nothing better than finding a complete bargain in there and then loads of people complimenting you on it and asking where it's from!

Favourite bloggers?

Essie again, Vivannadoesmakeup, Lily Pebbles, Un-observed, Milk Bubble Tea, Dizzybrunette and so so many more!

If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?

Hmm tough one, it's kind of already come back around with the new Gatsby film last year but I just love all the glitzy glamourous outfits from the 30's party scene, flapper girls outfits and those long sequin dresses and I especially love all those  headdresses! Just imagine if we all went out clubbing dressed like that now!

What is the song you listen to when you are getting ready to go out?

Anything by Justin Timberlake, I think he's amazing and one of the only real pop artists I listen to.

Where in the world would you most like to visit?

So many places! I've always wanted to go to New York though.

What is your favourite film of all time?

Is it sad to say Harry Potter? haha 

If you could have anyones wardrobe, whose would it be?

I honestly don't even know, someone who's style is very feminine but not over the top girly.

If you could meet anyone (dead or alive) who would it be?

Well they say every woman is either a Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe, I'm definitely an Audrey so I'd love to meet her. As well as Justin Timberlake of course!

Biggest guilty pleasure?

Reality tv shows like TOWIE, Geordie Shore and Made in Chelsea, they're awful aren't they but I bloody love them! haha.

If you had 3 wishes what would you wish for?

Something very cheesy like..
Happiness and health for all my family,
A job that I love
and a long happy life with my boyfriend.

Thanks so much to Phoebe for the questions, I had fun trying to answer them!
