The Liebster Award!

So I have been nominated for the Liebster Award!
I have seen a lot of these posts around and have now been fortunate enough to be nominated myself by Krystel Ice, so I am very grateful and thankyou to her!

For those of you who don't already know, The Liebster Award is for bloggers with less than 200 followers to share facts and information about themselves. A blogger will nominate other bloggers that they think deserve the recognition for their blog.

This is a great way for people to find out more about a blogger and get to see new blogs!

The Liebster Award Rules:

The nominee must link back to the blogger who nominated them.
The nominee must state 11 facts about themselves, and then answer the 11 question provided for them by the person who nominated them. They will then nominate bloggers with less than 200 followers who they think deserve the recognition and pose 11 questions for them to answer. They must then drop by all the blogs of the bloggers they have nominated and let them know they have been nominated.

11 Facts About Myself:

1. I have two Golden Retrievers called Fudge and Mojo.

2. The one place in the world I really want to visit is New York.

3. The teddy bear I got the day I was born still sleeps in my bed with me every night. I named him Teddy. How original.

4. Whenever I'm in the house, I'm in a onesie - they're so cosy!

5. I am actually very self-concious.

6. When I was 6, I lived in Gibraltar for a year.

7. I can't stand seeing a plug switched on when there's nothing plugged in - that annoys me for than anything!

8. I have small feet. I'm a size 3 but I tried on a pair of size 3 shoes the other day and they were too big!

9. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do in life which is slightly worrying!

10. Christmas is my favourite time of year without a doubt!

11. My biggest fear in life is ending up alone and never being able to have a family of my own.

The 11 Questions I Was Given:

1. What is your desert island essential?

Well a desert island would be a pretty boring place so I'm gonna say my iPhone because it would keep me the most entertained - I could read blogs on it, watch videos on it, play games etc..

2. Flats or Heels?

I wear heels occasionally if I'm dressing up for a party or going out but generally I would say I prefer to wear flats.

3. Favourite Beauty Brand?

My favourite brand I have ever used is probably Benefit or MAC but unfortunately I don't have the money to always use them :(

4. Coffee or Tea?

Neither! I don't like any hot drinks.

5. Describe your fashion style?

I wouldn't say I have a particular style. I just buy clothes I like and put outfits together out of them. So I would just some up my style as "Normal" or "Ordinary". Bit of a rubbish answer sorry!

6. Why did you start blogging?

I wanted to get experience in writing and I also wanted a hobby and something I could dedicate myself to doing. I wasn't sure if I would stick to it or be any good at it, but now I'm gaining a little bit of a following its giving me to motivation to want to continue, so I'm very thankful for that!

7. What is your favourite food?

That's a tricky one. I'd say pasta meals or risotto's are probably my favourite in terms of meals. Just for little snacks I love sweets!

8. Fashion or Beauty?

Very difficult one! I study fashion, and before blogging I probably would have said fashion but I'm gaining a lot more interest in beauty since blogging, and starting to feel like I'd rather spend my money on make up than clothes at the moment..but saying that I love buying clothes too. I really don't know.. can I say both?

9. Describe your personality in 4 words?

silly, loving, fun and shy (around new people).

10. What pet would you have and why?

Well I have two dogs and I love them alot! I'm definitely a dog person and prefer big dogs.. my dream dog to own would be a St. Bernard. But if I was to say a completely different pet to what I have I'd love a bunny!

11. What's your favourite thing to indulge on?

I have to say Pick n Mix sweets, they're the best!

5. What is your favourite make up brand?
