The Liebster Award!

It's reached me! The Liebster Award has come to my little ol' blog. This "award" aims to boost the profile of promising new bloggers with less than 200 followers. I have been nominated by the lovely Rachna (Seline Kyle) - check out her blog here

The way it works is that everyone who is nominated is given 11 questions about themselves to answer. They then make a post (like this one!) and then nominate 11 other blogs (but not the one that nominated them) with less than 200 followers for the Liebster Award. You need to follow those that you nominate, and you should follow the blog that nominated you. Simple! 

Here are the 11 questions that were given to me... Enjoy!

1. Do you have any pets? 

Yes! I have one pet and he's a goldfish called Scampi. He's 9 years old and still going strong! I've never had any "fluffy" pets though, because my parents have never wanted them. I hope that one day I will have some pets that I can cuddle and love; you can't really cuddle a goldfish! 

2. One thing that you'd never wear.

I had to think long and hard over this one. What I realised is that I have a never say never attitude to clothes! Although I have thought of one thing that I hope I will never wear! It's not that I hate them but I'd never wear anything that says "Geek" across it. This is mainly because, well, I am a bit of a geek and it wouldn't even be ironic! It would just be the truth! Also, I can't walk around the Chemistry building at university (I'm studying Chemistry...) wearing a t-shirt like that because, well, I'd just look like a fool!

3. Which is your favourite animal? 
So hard! I think I have to say that donkeys are my favourite animal. They're just such lovely creatures and I'd love to have a donkey!

4. Do you have or would you ever get a tattoo?

I don't have a tattoo but I keep thinking that I might want one, though I don't know what or where! Honestly, I'll probably never get one, but if I did it would be something small-ish and would need to be somewhere easily hidden, like on my ankle or something.

5. Cat person or dog person? 

I love both for different reasons! I used to be a major cat person because I was scared of dogs, but now that I'm not, I'm probably a dog person! Mainly because dogs give you a bit more affection and they're just so funny! Cats tend to only want you when they're hungry!

6. Which country would you like to live in? 

I'm not sure that I could see myself moving away from the UK, but if I did, maybe somewhere like Canada or Switzerland. 

7. Style inspirations.

I literally change the way I want to look daily! But probably from my favourite bloggers / youtubers. These three have totally different styles but I love them all! Helen (Melonlady), Ieva (Chanelette) and Lily Melrose

8. Do you play any instruments? 

Yes I do!  I play the drums though I haven't sat at a drum kit in over two years :(

9. Summer or winter? Why?

Winter 100%. You can wear lovely clothes in the winter and lots of them. Boots and jumpers and scarves... In the summer I just get too hot and sweaty and it's not a good look! 

10. Your favourite memory from the school days?

Another difficult question... I think I just like looking back on a time where I could just hang out with my friends with not too much to worry about! I wish that I had realised back then that my worries weren't that important and that I should just enjoy myself more! I miss my school friends; we've gone our separate ways now and I've moved away from where I grew up so I'm not really part of that circle of friends anymore, even though the rest of them are still quite close. 

11. What do you want to be? 

No! Don't ask me this! I am in complete and utter denial that very soon I am going to have to start applying for real-person jobs. I will graduate (hopefully!) with a Masters degree in Chemistry but I'm not sure if I want to have a career in Chemistry. I'm currently looking at other things I could do, like patent law, or finance. I want to be able to wear nice clothes to work! 

OK so, here are my 11 questions for the blogs I have nominated! 

1. Where do you see yourself being in 5 years time?
2. What is the best beauty product you have ever bought?
3. Do you have a favourite item of clothing? If so, what is it?
4. Have you ever moved house? How many times?
5. If you could have any pet, what would it be?
6. Tea or coffee?
7. What's your favourite place that you have ever visited?
8. If you could only have three types of food for the rest of your life, what would they be?
9. What type of music do you like and who is your favourite artist / band?
10. Do you have a favourite perfume, and what is it?
11. In no more than 3 sentences, if you could give a piece of advice to your 11 year old self, what would it be?
