the liebster award


I was recently (and when I say recently I mean it was actually a month ago and I've had this sitting half-finished in my drafts for weeks) nominated by the lovely Kimberley Jessica to do The Liebster Award which is something I've seen floating around the blogging world for a while but never taken part in so I was very excited to get to do it!

If you are nominated, these are the rules that you must follow:
1.) Post 11 facts about yourself.
2.) Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.
3.) Nominate 11 other bloggers.
4.) Ask them 11 questions.
5.) Let them know that you have nominated them.

this is semi-long post so without too much rambling let's get started!

 Eleven facts

I'm a total theatre nerd
My favourite colour is purple
99% of the time I have painted nails
I really, really don't like the smell of lilies
I. Love. Tea, like, actually hand on heart love it
My ultimate absolute favourite animal is a sheep
I'm a sucker for an inspirational quote, can't get enough of them
I have to wear glasses / contact lenses to be able to see anything at all
I think mushrooms, brussells sprouts and profiteroles are all equally gross
I've never used fake tan in my life; I'm just too scared I'll accidentally turn myself orange
I can't think of another fact so I'll just admit that I purposely organised this list like a pyramid

Kimberley's Questions

1. If you were to restart your blog, what would you do differently?
Probably not the answer you're looking for but I'd plan things better! Just by writing more posts in advance (and taking photos when it's a good lighting day)

2. What's your favourite thing about Autumn?
After the leaves have changed colour but before they all fall off the trees; it's so beautiful and always makes me feel happier about the cold/dark/wet.

3. If you were to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Cheesecake. Imagine having cheesecake for breakfast, lunch and dinner..YUM!

4. What's your favourite thing to do in your spare time (apart from blogging)?
Read! I absolutely love curling up with a cup of a tea and a book.

5. Favourite part about Christmas?
Oh wow, I actually don't know! I love everything about it so much, but I guess I'd have to say the atmosphere- people just seem to be happy

6. What's your worst habit?
I pick my split ends off; which creates more of them which I then pick off. It's a terrible cycle and I need to stop.

7. If you could live in a different country, which one would you choose and why?
Australia! Mainly because of the weather.

8. Most embarrassing story? 
Once upon a time, many years ago when I was a tiny year seven my really evil strict ICT teacher told me I had a detention and I immediately burst into tears in front of her, my form teacher and my entire form..a memory I would really like to forget one day if only to save myself from cringing every now and then.

9. What do you love about your life right now?
 Being back at university with my friends & housemates; the evenings we spend sitting in the kitchen talking absolute rubbish for hours are some of my best memories and I'm making the most of them this year!

10. What's your favourite season?
Summer! *starts humming Olaf's summer song*

11. Would you rather have your dream job, or become a blogger full time?
Dream job definitely.  While I really enjoy blogging I couldn't turn away from acting or being involved in creating drama work/theatre.
