Liebster Blog Award

I was very pleasently surprised and rather shocked when the lovely Aimée from Petticoats and Pansies tagged me in her post from the Liebster Blog Award. I've seen a few of these posts floating round, but never really looked at them thoroughly. Now though, I can't get enough and find it a lovely way to find out more about each blog, and get those blogs with less than 200 followers to get more recognition! 

So, here goes..

The rules are:

1) Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, plus create 11 questions to be answered by those you have tagged.
3) Choose 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
4) Go on their page and tell them you have tagged them in the awards.
5) Remember, no tag-backs!

11 things about me:

1) I'm quarter Polish
2) I have over 30 first cousins (and barely see them haha)
3) I'm starting Uni in September and absoluuutely bricking it, with a slight hint of excitement too.
4) I'm a very recent tea drinker and now I feel like a proper adult!
5) I'm a scatter brain and can't organise anything for the life of me
6) I'm tallish for a girl- almost 5 ft 11
7) I'm often late which is a very bad habit and something I need to get out of speedy!
8) I use the words 'lovely jubbly' and 'alright' too much, how lady like!
9) When I was little I pretended I needed glasses and tricked the optician
10) I'm a lover of 'dark' and confusing films
11) I have two cats and they're the cutest!

Questions from : Petticoats and Pansies

1) What's your favourite colour?
At the moment probably purple to look at, but black or blue to wear.

2) What would your dream job be?
To work in the media doing something, maybe in television production or in film, who know! I don't want to wish my life away just yet!

3) What made you decide to start a blog?
I've been reading blogs for years and my friend Charlotte was definitely gave me the final push to start one!

4) What is your favourite genre of blog?
I prefer fashion blogs a lot more as I don't know what I'm talking about when it comes to beauty, but  I prefer to do nail art posts myself, and wishlists and ootd's etc...

5) If you could travel the world, where would you go?
Hmm, I'd love to go to New York, as lot as my funds were bursting at the seams when I get there. I'd like to go to Mexico too and Kenya to see all the animals awww.

6) What would you buy if you were to win the lottery?
First thing I would buy? An intensive driving course and then maybe a mini, or a Ferrari? Decisions decisions haha. It's horrible not being able to drive!

7) Do you believe in things such as luck and fate? If so, why?
I don't believe in luck because I don't have much luck at all. If we were to go out for the day for instance, you could bet your savings I will be the one that has something bad happen to them (mostly falling over or losing something). Fate I do believe in sometimes, I do believe in the saying 'everything happens for a reason' and awful lot, as cliché as it might sound!

8) Fake tan or real tan?
Real tans are loovely, but I have to burn before I get one of those, so I'd say fake!

9) What's one thing that you will never leave the house without?
The normal boring things, phone, purse, lipbalm maybe?

10) Do you play any sports? If so, which?
No way hozay! I used to go horse riding and miss that a lot but that's about it!

11) Heels or flats?
I love wearing heels because I think they dress up any outfit, although I hate people telling me I don't need them. Tall girls are just as entitled to wear heels as anyone else! haha. 

Questions from me to you!
1) Do you prefer disposable fashion or 'investment pieces'?
2) What do you prefer to blog about, beauty, lifestyle, fashion etc?
3) If you won a prize to buy any item of clothing/shoes at any price, what would you buy?
4) What's your favourite season and why?
5) Do you prefer drug store products or high end?
6) What's the most you would ever spend on a fashion item and a beauty item?
7) What would be the one thing you own that you would miss the most if it was taken from you and why?
8) What's your favourite print e.g. aztec, leopard, zebra..?
9) What's your favourite colour to wear on your nails?
10) If you could re-live your life again, would you want to do it all the same?
11) What's your favourite garment in your wardrobe?
