The Liebster Award

Exciting news! The other day I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by the lovely Sophie Robinson (whose blog is amazing by the way – check it out!), which I am very grateful for! Thank you, Sophie! 

For those who don't know, the word ‘Liebster’ is German for dearest, sweetest, valued, lovely etc. This is a very exciting opportunity as it is a great way for the blogging community to help spread the word about up and coming bloggers with under 200 followers, and I guess it also lets you learn a little bit more about me!

So here’s how it works:

1. Link the blogger who nominated you in your post
2. Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with less than 200 followers)
4. Create your own set of 11 questions to ask your nominees
5. Let them know you nominated them!

Questions from Sophie:

1. What got you into blogging?

I’d seen a lot of my friends making blogs, and, admittedly, only created one myself because I thought it would help me practice and improve my writing for my degree. However, I have since realised it’s a great way for me to relax and organise my thoughts, and it's also really fun!

2. Which blogs inspire you?

About 2 years ago I randomly found a quirky blog by Gala Darling and have been following it ever since. It’s basically a “radical self love project”, promoting self-confidence and positive thinking. It’s just such an inspirational blog and I love how every post is written for a great cause and purpose.

3. What are your new year's resolutions?

This year, my main resolution is to just be more positive about everything. In order to help me do this, I made "sub-resolutions" to be more productive, go to bed early and get up early, and smile more! I’m still working on a few of these, but hey, it’s only January so there's still plenty of time!

4. If you had the chance to move to any city in the world where would it be?

I really just want to travel the world, so I’m going to cheat on this question a bit, and say if I had the chance, I’d move between different cities all over the place to see a bit of everything!

5. What is your favourite movie?

500 Days of Summer, which is strange because when I first watched it I didn’t actually like it that much! But now I could just watch it again and again for days in a row (which I have definitely done before...).

6. What is your must have item in your bag / on you at all times?

I’m going to have to be boring and say my phone! I also always have to have hair elastics round my wrist. Anyone with long, thick hair will understand! 

7. In your opinion, who is the best dressed celebrity?
Audrey Hepburn. She is was such a style icon of the 50s, and I’ve always admired how glamorous she was.
8. Current favourite TV show?

The Walking Dead. No question. I’m actually obsessed.

9. Most visited high street shop?

New Look and H&M. Being a student I don't have a lot of money, so that's where I usually find the best deals!

10. A red lip or dark eyes?

Dark eyes. I'm such a fan of the smokey eye for a night out!

11.  Blog plans for 2014?

More inspirational and positive blog posts!
