I've been nominated for The Liebster Award!

15 May 2015

Hey everyone! So this is a bit of a delayed post seeing as though I was nominated almost a month ago when I was just under 200 followers, and I'm now sitting on almost 300 - but I've finally gotten around to doing my Liebster Award Tag post!

The Liebster Award Tag is basically a fun way to discover great new blogs with a following of 200 or less lovely readers, and get your blog noticed! I'd like to say a massive thankyou to Ema from All The Good Blog Names Were Taken (Everyone should check her blog out)! Thanks so much for the nomination, and I loved reading your blog and your Liebster post! <3

Anyway, let's get started.

If you're nominated - the rules are:
1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the nominators 11 questions.
3. Nominate 11 small blogs who have less than 200 followers. You should believe that they deserve the award and include their link in your post.
4. Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer. Notify these nominees via social media/blog.


♥ 1. What's the one thing you're most proud of?
This is actually a pretty difficult question. I guess the thing I'm most proud of right now anyway is that I've just been accepted into uni for mid-year entry this July, so yeah, I'm pretty proud about that!

♥ 2. What is your biggest fear and why?
Actually I have three big fears. Mirrors, water, and darkness. I've seen too many scary movies and learnt too much about ghosts and portals and other worlds and demons etc and mirrors and water having reflections/being pathways to the other side scares the shit out of me! And darkness, well, if I can't see what's around me then I can't feel safe!

♥ 3. Before you die what are the five things you HAVE to do/achieve?
1. I need to visit almost* all of the countries in the world - I say almost as obviously, there are several that are just not safe to visit unfortunately, some that you cannot visit, and some that I may not really want to get around to.
2. Write and publish my own novel. This has always been on my bucket list.
3. Live in London for at least a year, if not forever!
4. Learn to speak both French and Dutch!
5. Create my own fashion sleepwear label - it's a massive dream but who knows what can happen!

♥ 4. Do you have any scary/cool ghost stories?
Actually I have quite a few, in fact more than enough to create an entire post (or two) about them - which has given me that great idea! If you'd like me to make a post on my own ghost stories then mention that in the comments below and I'll get on to it! But anyway, one that stands out began around 10 years ago when we moved into a new house. It always felt like there was someone (or several someone elses) there with us. The most notable thing from that house is a 'magic fairy wand' I used to have, which was kept in the rumpus/back room of the house. It was battery operated but I hadn't used it since I was like, 6 or 7 (so 3 years before we moved in). Late at night, between midnight and 4am, it used to go off, making it's 'fairy ding' kinda sound. We couldn't find it for a while, but when we eventually did, it didn't work (despite going off the night before). We opened up the battery case and lo-and-behold - the batteries had exploded, long ago! That night, it went off again. And continued to do so for years.
Very creepy.

♥ 5. If you could go right now to anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I'd buy a one-way ticket to Paris, France! Paris is my absolute favourite place in the world, I just loved it there and miss it so much! Amazing atmosphere, people, food, scenery, architecture, culture - everything about Paris is perfect! 

♥ 6. Where would you like to be n 5 years time?
I'd love to be living and working somewhere in the UK or Europe, in an amazing job and earning a good income to be able to support myself and my mum too, travelling a lot and enjoying life!

♥ 7. What is your idea of the worst first date imaginable?
The worst first date.. hmm.. as far as location goes, they'd better not take me to Maccas or somewhere cheap and nasty. No, you don't have to spend heaps of money on my but you do need to respect me, take me somewhere decent please, even a walk in the park and a picnic (next to free to do) would be fab! And please, nobody rude or self-centred or mean. Deal breakers.

♥ 8. If you were sent to a deserted island, and could only bring 3 things, what would you bring?
My camera, my laptop, and a journal.

♥ 9. Sweet or savoury? 
I'm definitely more of a savoury kinda girl. Don't get me wrong, I love sweets and all but I can only handle it in small amounts. Savoury stuff on the other hand, I can't get enough!

♥ 10. What couldn't you live without?
Honestly, there are several things I couldn't live without. Coffee, for example, is like the elixir of life for me. I need it, daily. Or else :') And then there's my baby girl Jasmine, my mum, and her girl Angel. <3

♥ 11. When do you think you'll be officially old?
I have no idea really, I think for me '30' feels like it'll be old. I mean there's a perceived change between twenties and thirties from fun and adventure to settling down

I really enjoyed answering these questions, so thankyou Ema! <3 

I have nominated the following blogs for the Leibster Award:
Okay, I know the rules call for 11 small blogs but honestly, I've never been that good with rules and all! I have seen so many blogs both big and small and so I'd like to nominate ALL of you with 200 or less followers reading this for the Liebster Award tag! <3

These are your questions:
1. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
2. Why did you start your blog?
3. Cats or dogs (or both)?
4. What was your favourite subject in school?
5. All-time favourite movie?
6. Growing up, what was your ultimate dream job?
7. Have you ever been bullied? Share your experience (if you want).
8. Chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry?
9. What is your least favourite food?
10. What do you want to study or do when you leave school / what are you studying / what did you study?
11. Describe the qualities of your perfect match.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading <3
