The Leibster New Blog Award

The Leibster New Blog Award


I was nominated for the Leibster Award by the beautiful Jodie from joiedejodie.com. I would just like to thank Jodie for the nominations before I get into what the award is. Jodie is a fantastic young blogger living in Wales, Uk. Whilst studying for her A Level Exams she manages to squeeze in writing about"the simple pleasures of life, improving aspects of life" and just documenting her own life experiences. If you like my blog you'll love this young fashion and beauty enthusiast with her cute french twist.


The Liebster Award:

An award given to new bloggers, to bloggers that have started their blogs recently and that have less than 200 followers. The point is that it's a great way to have exposure and meeting new people.

- First thank and mention the person who nominated you
- Then answer the questions they asked you
- Nominate up to 11 blogs that have 200 followers or less
- Think of 11 questions to ask your nominees
- And finally notify all the people you nominated

I was asked:

What are 3 words you would use to describe yourself?

I would probably describe myself as carefree, dedicated and passionate.  I like to keep issues that could stress me out to a minimum. I love to look ahead and work out the solutions to any possible stresses which may arise. I am also very committed to every aspect of my life; my relationships, my work,I love it all!

What type of blog post is your favourite to read?

I love lifestyle and how-to blogs. Anything that could teach me something new! I also love to read about the new trends and tutorials and give them a go. For me, I feel there is some areas in blogging which need to be filled a little more and I really hope I can contribute here on my blog.

What is your favourite movie?

I absolutely love Disney's Tangled! Aw my heart just melts at the bit with the lanterns or little sassy Pascal! I think its such an understated Disney film that was overshadowed by Frozen (don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Frozen fan, I've even been told I look like Elsa! haha I know I know...) If you haven't seen it you should really watch it! It really makes a great date night with my boyfriend, All cute and mushy! (Can I hear a d'aaaawww?!)

Who is your style inspiration? 

I suppose I take inspiration from several different places instead of just one person. I love both Holly Golightly and Audrey Hepburn both in their own right. I also really love the relaxed flowy chic of bohemian living. I have both a classy yet wild sense of style. It totally depends on my mood for the day! 

What is your favourite fashion brand?

 EEK! I am such a sucker for H&M. I can literally tell if your wearing something from there or not. I should be a sales rep for them haha! Okay, I'm starting to sound obsessive! But really, their affordable high quality clothing is fantastic and so much choice! Just get me a gift card if you're ever stuck for my birthday! haha I'm kidding! (No I'm not...)

What is your favourite skincare product?

I would be lost without my Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Face Wash. It smells amazing and will definitely but a smile on your face first thing in the morning. It keeps my skin clear without drying out my already prone-to-dryness skin.

If you won Β£1,000,000, what would you do with it?

I was just talking about this the other day! I'd give a little to my sister for college and some to my mum and dad too. Then I'd go and bugger off on a nice holiday because I most definitely need one! haha! I don't actually know though.  

What is your favourite food?

Once, I could've given you a sure answer. But since meeting my boyfriend's Swiss side of the family, my taste buds have been exposed to a whole other world. and it is awesome. I really love cooking though so I really enjoy experimenting with food, trying new things. It's all very exciting! 

What qualities do you look for in a friend?

Somebody who is honest,true and respectful of me. I really can't cope with lying, cheating, actions behind your back. I put up with plenty of crap when I was a kid so I expect a lot more of people now. People often mistake me for naive but I am really on the ball and I'm not afraid to cut the BS from my life! simple as. A good friendship is very important to me as its the solid foundation of any relationship.

Why did you start blogging?

I like writing and I like helping and sharing things with new people. I really enjoy the whole blogging community. It's a fun, creative and supportive outlet where you can talk and discuss your views. Please do share with me your blogs or other blogs you like, I'd love to read em all! 

What would you like to be doing in 10 years?

In 10 years I will be 30 years old. OMG. I'd like to have a well-paying career hopefully from by writing or my passion for makeup. 10 years is so far away and so much can happen! As long as I am surrounded by my friends and my family I will be very happy no matter what I do or where I go!

My questions are:

  1. What would be your dream job? 
  2. Who inspired you to start your blog? 
  3. What countries have you been to and why did you go? 
  4. What is your favourite place to be?
  5. What's your favourite thing to write about? 
  6. Who gave you your first criticism (good or bad)? 
  7. What is your favourite novel?
  8. What id your favourite childhood memory? 
  9. Describe your blogging style? 
  10. If your life was a film who would play you and why? 
  11. What's your favourite thing to do to unwind? 

So I nominate  Fragglebean , Not in These Shoes, Emily and Sophie Mace and That New Dress.

Good Luck and Enjoy ladies!
