The Liebster Award

This weeks post is slightly different. I was recently nominated by the lovely Ashleigh of mashmato for the Liebster Award, you can follow her on bloglovin' here. It's the first award I've been nominated for so I am extremely grateful. It seems like such a great way of giving blogs you love recognition and becoming involved in the blogging community. I can't wait to answer the questions and I hope you guys enjoy getting to know me better.

The Rules:

Once nominated make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.

Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post.

Nominate 10 other bloggers that have 200 followers or less who you think are worthy of the award.

Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can nominate the person who nominated you.

Once nominated make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.

Answer the 10 questions asked to you by the person who nominated you and create ten questions for your nominees.

Lastly, copy these rules into the post.

My Nominees:

Nikki is Living

Butter Bazaar

Beauty and the Brain Project

The Sixth Disney Princess


Clothes Minded

The Questions:

1. If you could dye your hair any colour for one day, what would you choose?

Gosh, I've had brunette, blonde, red, blue, purple, lilac and green hair, so probably pink just because I haven't tried that yet!

2. Are you a sweet or savoury person?

Definitely sweet. I'm always in the kitchen baking treats or eating fruit, I pretty much live off mangoes.

3. What was your dream when you were younger?

I wanted to be a princess, a ballerina and a rabbit (I'm not sure that last one's physically possible).

4. Has your dream changed/been achieved?

Sadly no. Although I'm really enjoying what I'm doing now. I'm starting a completely new chapter in my life soon, which is both exciting and terrifying.

5. What is the best book you've ever read?

I read a lot but to this date it's 'When I Was Five I Killed Myself' which doesn't sound like a great book but it's one of the most interesting and eye opening books I've ever read. It's a tale of a boy who is placed in a mental institution because of his inability to express his feelings in a manner which is accepted by society. It's told entirely through his point of view which alters your perspective of each event as he grows up.

6. On a scale of 1-10, how much do you use social media?

I would say 8. I check Twitter every morning when I wake up, I'm constantly on Instagram and I'm obsessed with Pinterest. Although I don't really post regularly, so I wouldn't say I'm an avid user.

7. Where do you see your blog in 10 years?

Hopefully over 10 years I will continue to learn and the quality of my posts will improve along the way. It would also be nice to have continued support from those that read my blog, it seriously makes my day every time someone comments and I'd love to get to know more people through blogging, that would be lovely.

8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

This is a super hard question but in that time frame I'd like to be in some sort of design career, I'm going to study Graphic Arts in September and I currently have my heart set on a career in advertising. 

9. Are you an optimistic or a pessimistic person? Or a mix of both?

I would like to think I'm generally optimistic although my brain does occasionally like to overthink things and worry which leads to me getting a tad pessimistic, so probably more a mix of both.

10. Do you take ages to do your makeup? How long?

I don't take long to do my makeup, it probably takes about 10 minutes, I don't think that's long anyway. It's mainly because I'm terrible at doing it. If I didn't suffer from acne I don't even think I'd bother with makeup.

Here are my 10 questions:

1.  If you could travel anywhere where would you choose?

2. What's your favourite quote and why?

3. If you could only use one social media for the rest of your life which would you pick?

4. Would you say you're more of a dreamer or a realist?

5. What's your favourite thing about blogging?

6. Why did you start blogging?

7. What's one thing you'd really love to do or see in your lifetime?

8. What's your favourite TV show/film or both?

9. What cheers you up when you're down?

10. If you could only have five possessions what would they be?

Thank you again to Ashleigh for nominating me, I look forward to reading everyone else's posts.
I hope you enjoyed reading this, I'd love to know your answers to some of these questions.
