One of the things I love most about blogging is how supportive the blogging community is. So I was delighted to be nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Asiya Shaikh from Infinity! Thank you Asiya!
From what I can gather, the idea of this online award system is to help promote the blogs you love whilst also opening up a bit to your readers by answering the questions put before you. These are the rules…
1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers, who have less than 200 followers and link them. You should believe they deserve this award and include their link in your post.
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
5. Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.
So without further ado, here are my answers to Asiya’s questions…
1.Who inspires you, and why?
Victoria from IntheFrow, I started think about blogging around 3 years ago but I really didn’t have the confidence in myself to do it. I started following Victoria’s blog really early on and watching her grow, win awards and start working with Gleam, (so her blog is now her full time job!), gave me the confidence boost to start my own.
What is your favourite clothing item?
Tough question! Are shoes a clothing item because currently I am in love with my Guess blue and yellow heels I bought in New York before Christmas! They are the comfiest heels I have ever worn and go with so many different outfits.
What is your best achievement?
Representing England in the European Championships for baton twirling and winning bronze, silver and gold medals for 3 consecutive years. This was around 10 years ago now but I am still so proud that I had the chanced to compete for England even if majorettes is not a recognised sport!
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is being able to share my views on different beauty products, fashion trends and clothes. It has also got me trying new brands and styles that I would never have done before. I also love the blogging community and how everyone is so supportive of one another.
What is your dream destination?
Previously I would of said New York but I was very lucky to visit New York with my mum just before Christmas last year. Sooooo….currently it is DisneyWorld in Florida! I have actually managed to persuade my boyfriend to go next year so in around 12 months I will actually be at my dream destination.
What are your future goals?
I actually do have quite a few! My future goals would be to expand my blog and start working with more brands and other bloggers and to also progress further in my career at work. More short term future goals would be to buy a house in the next 18 months with my boyfriend and then finally get my own pomeranian puppy when we have our house!
What is your current favourite song?
Brooklyn Baby by Lana Del Ray, both of her albums are amazing, (Born to Die and Ultraviolence), although I am pretty partial to Taylor Swifts album 1989 too.
What is your favourite current fragrance?
Versace Bright Crystal
Funniest moment you have experienced?
My boyfriend falling down the stairs on Christmas Eve and his mum being more worried that he had broken the lights on the banister, my boyfriends dad and I were in hysterics for about 10 minutes. We were all worried about him but as my boyfriends dad laughed more it made me laugh and the cycle just continued for ages!
P.S: He was fine but a couple of the lights did have to be fixed!
Why you started blogging?
I started blogging because I liked the idea of having my own space to review products and share outfits that I love. Working in a all male office all day is awesome but there is no one there to talk to about new beauty/fashion trends and anything fashion and beauty related so I thought I would share what I thought with anyone who stumbles across my blog!
Best thing about where you live?
Being so close the the sea and all of the beautiful parks and nature walks we have within a stones throw, Devon and Cornwall are both beautiful and we are lucky to have such beautiful scenery all around us.
