The Liebster Award

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Hello everyone. I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award, which came as a huge surprise with me. I was nominated by Filipa de Curveira, whose blog I absolutely love! You can find it here. Anyway, on with the post!

The idea behind this award is to give smaller blogs an opportunity to be recognised in the community and allow them to share more about themselves. It's a great way for your blog to gain popularity and also for you to meet other bloggers. 

The questions that Filipa asked me are:

1. What do you love most about blogging?
Wow, that's such a hard question since I love a lot of things about blogging. However, I think one thing that really stands out for me is your feedback. I love receiving positive comments, emails and when people say they like my posts, as I work really hard on them. This always motivates me to keep writing and I love you all for being so nice and supportive.

2. What do you consider the worst fashion no-no?
I don't know whether it's just me or if other people share my opinion but I don't like it when people have a whole outfit that consists of the same pattern/material. Like when people wear a denim jacket and jeans or a leather top and skirt. I just think it makes them stand out less and they often don't look right together.

3. What Disney character would you be?
If I was a Disney character, I'd love to be Alice Liddell from Alice in Wonderland. I played her in a show last year and absolutely fell in love with the character. She's a young girl and has the same colour eyes and hair as me. She's adventurous and polite, yet can also be quite shy at times. I love how she's sincere and honest with everyone she meets and is determined to get home again.

4. Favourite time of the day and why?
I love the really early morning just as the sun is coming out and the birds start to sing. I always feel really refreshed at this time of day and I love to watch the sun rise of a morning. When it's winter, I also love to wake up early and curl up in bed with a good book.

5. Salty or sweet?
Sweet! I'm a huge chocoholic, I love sweets and candyfloss and I really like sweet fruits like berries. I know most of it is really unhealthy but it's very addictive. I never add salt to my food and I don't eat a lot of it.

6. If your life had a soundtrack, what songs would be on it?
I can't think of a whole list of songs, but one that would definitely be featured is Heart of Stone by Iko. I discovered this song a few years ago but I listen to it all the time. It has helped me through a lot and it never fails to reduce me to tears, yet has also made me stronger.

7. What's the one thing you can never leave the house without?
I know this is a typical teenage answer but I couldn't leave my house without my phone. If I was ever to be in an emergency or needed to contact someone, I'd be lost without my phone. I also have a bit of an addiction to Twitter and the app 2048.

8. What's your must have for Autumn/Winter?
I couldn't pick just one item that is essential for this autumn and winter, but if you'd like to know a few that are in fashion right now and I recommend, I wrote a whole blog post about it, which you guys can see here.

9. If you had one wish what would you wish for?
I'm one of those people who believes that if you tell someone your wish, it won't come true, so I'm afraid I can't say. However, I will tell you that every time I get an eyelash or see a shooting star, I wish for the same thing, which is something to do with my family.

10. What's your life goal?
My life goal is to discover who I truly am and to be a person that I want to be and I'm proud of. I want to do things that make me smile and benefit all of the people around me, whether they're big or small acts of kindness.

I now have to nominate ten people who I think have amazing content and who are genuinely sweet. This for me was hard, as I didn't want to leave anyone out, so I'm really sorry if you're not on the list! The people I nominate for a Liebster award are:

2. Kathryn from
3. Lauren from
4. Amber from
5. Katie from
6. Jilly from
10. Hayley from

My questions for these people are:

1. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
2. If you had to change your name, what would you change it to and why?
3. Do you prefer Disney or Pixar movies?
4. What is your favourite childhood memory?
5. What is your pet peeve? 
6. Do you have any party tricks or hidden talents?
7. If you weren't a beauty or fashion blog, what would your blog be about?
8. Do you believe in life after death?
9. What is one staple item in your wardrobe for this season?
10. What are your thoughts on the concept of infinity?

If you have been nominated, the rules are:

• You must link the person who nominated you in your post (and make sure you say thank you!)
• You must answer all of the questions
• You must come up with ten questions of your own
• You must tag 10 other blogs that you genuinely like and enjoy reading
