Evening all. Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend?
So this Sundays post has been changed up a bit. I had originally planned to do a post about an outing I had planned for yesterday (Saturday), but plans got changed and it didn’t happen. So thankfully, the gorgeous Jodie from Jodetopia nominated me for something called the “Liebstar Award”. Be sure to pop by her blog and give it a read, some great posts! Sorry there are no pictures to go with this post, but it was planned last minute.
If you’re like me and have NO idea what it is, I’ve stolen the information below from Jodie’s blog!...
“For those of you who don’t know what the Liebstar award is – it’s an award by bloggers for bloggers. It’s passed on from one person to another like those old chain mail emails from secondary school (remember those good old days!). The only catch is you can only nominate newbie bloggers – there are many different variations of the rules – some say newbie is defined by less than 200 followers, others say less than 1000.
The rules I’m going with are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog
2. Answer the 11 questions the nominator has given you.
3. Tag 11 bloggers who have less than 1000 readers.
4. Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers you have nominated.
5. Let them know you’ve nominated them through social media or their blog.”
Q1) If you were offered the chance for your blog to become your career, would you do it? Why/why not?
Hell yeah! It would be an amazing opportunity. I love blogging, interacting with readers and making new friends, so why not? How fab to do something you are truly passionate about for your career?
Q2) You have to give up either makeup, hair products or your bed for the rest of your life – which would you choose?
Hmmm... Wow now this is a tough one! Can I cheat here and since you said “your bed”, I’d give that up and sleep in my boyfriends instead :P hehe
Q3) What are your top three holy grail makeup products that you will forever repurchase?
“Forever” is a long time, so not sure about that… But the three I’m certainly in no rush to change at the moment, (nor have in the past year), would be; Rimmel London’s Extra Super Lash Mascara, MUA Matte Perfect Translucent Powder and
Q4) How do you wind down and relax after a stressful day?
When I get home I like to have a shower, maybe pop on a facemask or use the Vitamin E hot cloth cleanser. Have something to eat and then just have a chilled evening catching up on TV, YouTube, Blogs or Twitter.
Q5) What is your favourite flavour of crisps?
I have a few its impossible to choose just one. Monster Munch; flaming hot or beef, Doritos; chili heatwave.
Q6) What is your earliest childhood memory?
Learning to ride my bike without stabilisers :) was supposed to wait for my mum to take in the washing (so she could teach me) and she came back out to find me riding around in circles in the garden.
Q7) What is the most important thing you would tell your 12-year-old self?
Don’t try to rush growing up! It’ll come sooner than you think and then there’s no turning back. Treasure every moment you get.
Q8) Bath or shower?
Shower all the way! I’m really not a fan of baths. They waste too much time and I always end up showering after I do have one anyway since you’re just basically sitting in dirty water. Will maybe have 2-5 a year, (if that)!!
Q9) Painted finger nails or painted toes?
Got to be fingers if I have to choose just one! Where it gets so cold over here my toes spend most of their life in socks ha!
Q10) Would you confront your worst fear for £5000?
Nope. My worst fear is loosing a loved one. No amount of money can change that!
Q11) Last but not least – I think reflecting is a really important activity of everyone’s daily routine. What is one happy thing that happened to you today? You can’t say nothing – no matter how big or small there are positives in every single day we live!
My boyfriend and I are currently in Birmingham for the Christmas Market. We had such a laugh driving the 2 hours up here. Drowning out each others singing to all the Christmas tunes. I love creating little, silly memories you can keep with you forever!
And that’s it! Thanks again for the nomination Jodie. I now nominate…

8) If you had one wish, what would you wish for?
