The Liebster Award
Hey there,At the beginning of last week I was tagged in post. First things first was super flattered that anybody had even read my blog never mind nominate for any kind of award.. that's just crazy talk seeing as I've barely had my little old blog for 2 months. But still thank you so so much to Alice from One and the Same for nominating me, I'm very very grateful. You should all go check out her lovely blog. It's a great read!!
I had honestly never heard of this Award before so I had to do a little bit of research. So for those of you that are like me and also have no clue what The Liebster Award is, I'm going to do my best to explain it the best I can.
So it all starts on the post which you have been nominated in.. that person (in my case One and the same) will have answered 11 question, nominated 11 bloggers with 1000 followers or less and created their own set of 11 questions for their nominees to answer. Once you've finished you post don't forget to tag and link all your nominees, so they know they have been nominated.
Now that I have been nominated its my turn to answer, create and tag.. lets get started!!
1) What made you start blogging?
this is quite hard for me to answer as I'm not really sure why I started .. Is that weird? But I guess if I had to pin point the reason I think it would be because I really enjoyed reading other peoples blogs and loved seeing how much passion they all had for what they were writing about, and I just thought I want to share what I'm passionate about and share my experiences. So here I am.
2) What would be your dream job?
ooo i'm that one girl thought out school and college that had no clue what so ever what i wanted to do when I "grew up" and I can safely say nothing has changed. All I know is that I would love a job that would allow me to work from home and allow me to sit in my PJ's all day and drink endless cups of tea, but thats not going to happen any time soon. I know I would be interested in doing something with beauty and makeup simply because that's my passion.
3) What have you gained the most from blogging?
With blogging I guess I have learn't that it is ok to have your own opinion, I have always been a very shy person and kept my self to my self, never voiced my opinion even on the small things because I didn't want to get laughed at, since I started blogging I've learnt to stop giving a crap!! ( within reason of course) The blogging community is such a wonderful community every body is so lovely, although I haven't been in touch with many fellow bloggers, those I have spoke with have been lovely!!!
4) Whats your weirdest passion?
I'm finding this one very difficult to answer as I think i'm quite an odd person any way. I think a lot of people would think quite a bit of what I do is weird... but it all seems normal too me... I asked my boyfriend what weird things I do as I cant think of a weird passion as such but apparently I have a weird eating habit, now that I think about it I do, do this. I eat all food on my plate separately i.e all carrots, all meat, all potatoes. Which I do think is that weird but that's the first thing he came up with, so he clearly thinks its weird... aha My best friend also pointed out a odd thing that I do, I buy mugs because I think they are Instagramable ( making up words here but you get what I mean) not because I need them. Which btw I think is completely normal...
5) What's your absolute fail safe outfit that you feel most confident in?
I can quite easily say I'm not a "fashionable" person I tend to go for comfort more than what looks good. But if you ever met me I could almost guarantee that I would be wearing leggings, and that would probably with and an over sized jumper or shirt and either a pair of flats or little booties.
6) Have you experienced negativity to do with your blog or blogging in general?
I have to say so far every comment I have had on my blog has been wonderful and any feed back has been great. But I think within time the haters gonna hate, but that's ok. I blog because I enjoy doing it and I'm hoping when and if the negativity comes it wont stop me from blogging.
7) What is your favorite lip stick?
I hoping this doesn't mean just 1 favorite.. I have a fair few but my top 3 I think would have be Rimmel London 107, Rimmel London 180 and L'Oreal 430 they all have a lovely smooth consistency and great staying power.
8) Who is your blogging inspiration?
I think its possible to be inspired by anyone's and everyone's blog.I don't think I could pick out any one blog as being inspirational, all blogs I have read weather I have read one post or I have gone 3 years into their archives have given some kind of inspiration. One of the first blogs I ever read for fun was Zoella's and because of her blog I became curious about the blogging world, I started to explore the blogging Hashtags,
9) What is your favorite thing about your body?
I am someone who is quite self conscious about my body, but if i had to pick a favorite part of my body I would have say my legs. If you follow me on Instagram then you'll know I quite often have my legs out, because why not.
10) How do you normally spend your weekends?
I work in retail so I never have your normal Saturday and Sunday weekend off, my "weekend" could be at any point in the week, just when ever I have my days off for that week. It has come to my attention recently that I am very lazy human being. I love to do NOTHING. I do it very well. Now I have my blog I find my self writing little notes and blog post ideas and reading other peoples blogs and I like to discover new bloggers. I will also drink ridiculous amounts of tea, I just love tea. How British of me!! I also find my self doing my makeup for the hell of it on my days off, i just enjoy doing it I find it quite therapeutic.
11) What's your favorite piece of advise?
I don't know if I have any favorite pieces of advice, but I have a few quotes/sayings that I do really like.
"Always look on the bright side of life" this is quite suitable for me, as I am trying to be a more positive person and look at the positive things in life rather than the negative.
"we are born to be real, not perfect" I think its important to remember that you are "REAL" be who you are, who you want to be and not what the magazines tell you to be and not what social media tells you be. I'm well aware that it's a lot easier said than done. But we need to remember that.
"Live the life you love, Love the life you live" I have thought about this as a tattoo many times. One I just love saying it, it just rolls off the tongue. I think its good to make sure that you always do things in life the you love and that you have a passion for that way you'll never be bored and you'll always love your life.
