The Liebster Award

Liebster Award Tag

*UPDATE - I was nominated again! Scroll down for my new questions and answers!*

The very lovely Luke Snowden nominated me for the Liebster Award.  It is a tag post for new bloggers to share some information about themselves and to then link to other new bloggers inviting them to answers questions about themselves.
Its a way of finding new people and helping promote small blogs.

Rules

As with all these kind of tag posts there are a few rules:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Answer the questions set by the person.
  3. Nominate 11 small blogs who all have under 200 subscribers that you think deserve the award.
  4. Create 11 new questions.
  5. Notify the nominated bloggers either by social media or on their blogs.
So thank you Luke and now onto my answers to your questions...

Q1) When you were younger, what did you want to do when you grew up?

A1) I wanted to be a dancer.  I danced all they way up until I went to university but never really had the confidence to take it further.  Sometimes I look back and wish I had took the plunge and took it further but I have different aspirations now.

Q2) If you suddenly won the lottery, what's the first thing you would do?

A2) Pay off my mortgage / student loans (boring but practical!) then I would probably book flights to go and see my twin brother.  He live in Australia and I haven't seen him in person for over three years.

Q3) What's your favourite way to relax?

A3) I love to just stay at home and not do much really.  I might do a bit of baking or cook something lovely for tea or even get my sewing out and sit and do that.  I'll just do whatever take my fancy!

Q4) What's one thing that really pisses you off?

A4) Rude obnoxious people.  There's just no need to be like that.  I work in retail and I just can't stand the rude people who shout at you for doing your job.  If you shout at me I'll just smile at you and continue to politely say that I can't do what you're asking me to do! Kill the with kindness that my philosophy!

Q5) What's your most used phone app?

A5) OMG err....  Probably the usual's, Facebook, Twitter, and ChromeCast.  I love been able to queue up Youtube video's on my phone and the watch them on the TV!

Q6) What's your favourite kind of tea?

A6) Fruit teas (at the moment Twinnings Cranberry and Blood Orange).  I recently gave up caffeine so I've been experimenting with different flavours so I'm sure there will be more favourites to add to this list!

Q7) What's your favourite TV show?

A7) Oh gosh this is  a hard one.  It changes all the time! At the moment I love Arrow and The Flash.  They leave me on the edge of my seat every week and I also love Agents of Shield (I love comic book action!).  I also love comedies as well such as Middle and Modern Family.  Also any of the Real Housewives Series which my boyfriend calls trashy TV but I love it!

Q8) What's your favourite high street store and or restaurant?

A8) For clothes I love H&M.  I think the clothes are good quality whilst still benn affordable and fashionable.  And they also make gorgeous kids clothes that I love to look through for my niece!
Food wise its probably a Dominoes (I know not technically a restaurant but we don't eat out often!)  We have one as a payday treat and that's when my healthy eating goes out of the window and I have the meatiest pizza possible!

Q9) Are you a sweet or savoury kind of person?

A9) Savoury, I could eat bread till the end of time!

Q10) Can you speak any other languages other than English?

A10) No I can't but I would like to.  I really struggled with French at school and dropped it as soon as I had the opportunity to.  I regret that now and keep trying to pick up a few phrase with the Duolingo app but I'm not really succeeding!

Q11) Which bloggers inspire you to write?

A11) I don't think I can pinpoint any particular bloggers that inspire me to write.  I read so many different blogs there's a little bit from all of them that gives me inspiration to write. 

Well there's my answers.  
I feel like I've maybe waffled on a bit so sorry about that!

Now onto my questions for my nominee's!

1) What's something that make you feel better when you're having a bad day?
2) What is your favourite song?
3) Who is your celebrity crush?
4) What's your favourite comfort food?
5) Do you collect anything?
6) Do you have any pets?
7) What would be your ideal job?
8) What's one thing you've achieved that you are extremely proud of?
9) What makes you smile?
10) Who inspires you?
11) What's you favourite item to bake or cake to eat?

Well there's my questions!
Sorry if they're a bit lame!

What do you think of my answers?
Is there anything else you would like to know?

*UPDATE*

I got nominated again!
So I thought I'd share my answers to those questions too!
Thanks UndertheBeard for the nomination :)

Q1) Give us a brief description of your blog?

A1) I would say its my place on the internet to share the things I find important.  A little bit of lifestyle, a little bit of beauty, and (in the future) cooking and craftyness!

Q2) If you was offered £100 to sell your blog and start again... would you?

A2) Probably not.  I've spent a lot of time tinkering with my template and creating a design that I am happy with.  With regards to content its probably not the best so far but as I (hopefully) get better as time goes on I'll be able to look back and see how much I've achieved!

Q3) What is one of your favorite movies of all time?

A3) SHREK! I have always loved this movie,  Its heartwarming, funny and there are so many different things to pick out and I love the soundtrack!  Its the film I watch when I'm having a crappy time and need cheering up!

Q4) If you could divide your personality or emotions into 3 sections , what would they be?

A4) This is really difficult... but I would have to say 30% happy 40% anxious/worrier/unconfident 30% idealist/dreamer.

Q5) Cats or dogs?

A5) I like other peoples pets but wouldn't really want one of my own so neither!

Q6) Do you pay tips when you go out for dinner?

A6) It all depends on the service but generally yes.

Q7) What do you wish you more time to do?

A7) I wish I had more time for myself to experiment with all the things I like to do.  I'd love to bake elaborate meals and create all sorts of beautiful things for my house.  I'm often too tired to bother picking up my sewing when I get in from work!

Q8) Whats you favourite guilty pleasure song?

A8) OMG there's so many!  I love dancing around to Take That! 

Q9) Best Night - Clubbing, Dinner, Pub, or Sofa?

A10) I'm such a boring soul! I love to cuddle up on the sofa all comfy in my pj's and watch something on the telly!

Q10) If you could be on Jeremy Kyle for a made up reason, what would it be?

A10) Probably for a lie detector test to find out if my partner had been playing a way with the skank next door!

Q11) What are you wearing right now?!

A11) My comfy pants, a crop top, and wrapped in a blanket!

What do you think of these answers?
