The Liebster Blog Award!

Well hello again!

I logged onto my blog last night to see a comment from the lovely Lizzie ( Lizzie Loves Red ) and she has nominated me for the liebster blog award...and if you have been lucky enough to have won blog awards or been nominated for them, it makes you feel pretty amazing! It's my first ever nomination and feels eeek so good! Couldn't believe it when I logged in! So thank you very much Lizzie, and make sure you all go check her blog out, as it's pretty awesome!

I don't know about you when you read it, but the word 'Liebster' intrigues me, so I did a bit of google defining (standard!) and discovered that it is a German word and translate as: 'friend', 'love', beloved'. And the idea is the nominee is to have less than 200 followers, and the award then can bring some attention to these blogs.

So lets get down to the nitty gritty part:

The Rules!

1. You must share 11 things about yourself.
2. Then you need to answer the 11 questions that your tagger has given you.
3. Then you are to choose 11 fellow blogs to nominate. The nominees must have under 200 Google Friend Connect followers and be told in a comment on their blog.
4. Next you have to think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers you have nominated.
5. Finally thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.

Rule 1: 11 Things About Me 

1. I am left handed but apart from writing and using cutlery I do everything with my right hand or foot. 

2. I don't drink alcohol - I just don't see the need to become drunk and be a complete wreck and feel awful the day after!

3. I can say the alphabet backwards as quickly as I can forwards. 

4. I think I probably could make and bake a cake with my eyes shut I've done it so many times!

5. I need to block e-bay from my computer as I spend waaaay too much money on there. Thank goodness it's cheap!

6. I am addicted to milkshakes. At home. At cafes. In parlours. Love them. 

7. My favourite season is spring. Not too cold and not over hot and I like to see all the new baby animals in the fields!

8. I love sports and exercise. Watching it, playing them, reading about it. I am still getting over the no Olympics for 3 and a half years!

9. I enjoying reading books I choose. But I find the motivation hard to continue reading! I can read the first 50 pages in a couple of nights and enjoy it. But then I loose interest, even though I've really enjoyed what I've read. Eventually when I feel the need to read again and pickup the book on page 50 I've forgot everything which happened prior to it. So have to begin again!

10. I hate having my hair cut! The whole process from start to finish!

11. I am the lightest sleeper ever. If someone sneezes in the next room boom I'll be awake! 

Rule 2: 11 Questions Answered From My Tagger

1: What do you prefer, Fashion & clothing, or make up & beauty?
- Ooh this question is tough but I think I'll go for make up and beauty as I enjoy it most and experimenting with new looks and products and colours. And although I'm no make up expert in the slightest through YouTube and blogs I feel I know a lot about it now!

2: What's your favourite make up brand and why?
Well I think I've got to pick what I have the most of and what I've been using for the longest and that is the natural collection found in boots! I have very sensitive and dry skin and this doesn't affect it at all and also with the collection being called 'the natural' collection... It gives off a nice natural look which is what I aim for! Also the pricing is SO reasonable. Love it!

3: What's the thing that you most HATE?
- I really cannot stand it when people do not smile back. Like if I'm walking down a street or am sat in a restaurant and I smile at someone whether it be a man lady or teenager and they just look at you... Aargh I can't bare it! I find it impossible not to smile at someone who smiles at me!

4: Where your favourite place in the world & why?
- Ooh I could say a whole heap of places here. Think the best is the Isle of Wight. Spent so many happy holidays there. It's usually always warm. There is so much to do, the scenery is beautiful and although you are still in England. You could easily feel like your abroad!

5: What's your favourite clothing shop?
- It's a toss up between Primark and New Look for me! That's pretty much where my whole wardrobe is from! Their pricing is reasonable. There is such a variety of fashion in them both and without fail I can always find something to buy in there!

6: What is your most used skin care item?
- Pretty boring answer to this really but it's moisturiser. I get super dry skin so it's a must to apply as much as I can! I use 'simple moisturiser'. 

7: Do you have any pets, and if so what are they?
- No pets for me! I'm pretty scared of anything with fur! I used to have 2 pet goldfish though!

8: What's your favourite piece of clothing, the one most used by you?

- Another pretty boring answer but its the truth and its my plain black skinny jeans. They go with practically everything. They are comfy to wear. And you can dress them up and down. And they are under a tenner in Primark!

9: What can't you live without?
- Apart from the obvious things like my family, food and money etc for me is music! I love it. It helps to lift my mood. It makes me laugh with my crazy dance routines I can do to it. It's a great time passer. And it's a great distracter!

10: What's your favourite food?
- Doughnuts. Krispy Kreme ones. Hot sea side ones. Home made ones. Jammy ones. Bakery ones. Supermarket ones. Sugared ones. You name it, if its a doughnut I like it ;). 

11: What's your favourite nail polish brand?
- Eeek I love so many. Another super hard question to pick one but my winner is going to be..... Nails Inc. I love the names of the polishes. I love how bright and pigmented the colours are. I like how you get pretty big bottles of it and they look such a good quality on my nails!

Rule 3: My 11 Nominations

Rule 4: My 11 Questions For My Nominees! 

1. If you could only have one social site out of facebook, twitter, youtube, blogger, instagram etc, which one would you pick?!

2. Given the choice, would you rather buy cheaper things and have more, or buy more expensive things and have less?! For example, would you rather go into Primark and buy 5 vest tops for £10, or would you rather go into Topshop and buy 1 vest top for £10?!

3. What is your 'song on repeat' right now?

4. What is one of your pet hates?

5. Who are your top three youtubers?

6. What one make up item could you not live without?

7. Do you prefer your hair straight, waved or curled?

8. If you were to go on 'Come Dine With Me' what would your 3 course menu be?!

9.  What are your guilty pleasures?

10. What is the best holiday you have ever been on?
