The Liebster Award x2

I have never been nominated for this award before so to be nominated twice within a week or so, is a little overwhelming! Thank you to Lisa at The Sennockian and Megan at Aurora Dust for nominating me.

Lisa's post states you have to post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions. Rather than do 11 random facts I will answer both Lisa and Megan's questions. You also have to nominate 11 other bloggers to answer 11 questions you have set yourself. This award is for new blogs with under 200 followers. This is quite different to any of my other posts as I don't normally share much about myself on my blog. So here goes, hope you enjoy reading.

11 questions from Lisa:
1. If you are having a blogging lull, how do you inspire and motivate yourself?
  • I have set myself 3 topics to write about each week, which on top of a full-time job, is quite a lot! Fingers crossed, I haven't had a blogging lull yet.

2. Favourite clothes shop?
  • I haven't been clothes shopping in ages as I'm saving to go on holiday, but I do like a bit of Zara and Oasis. 

3. Marmite. Love it or hate it?
  • Love it.

4. Which film or TV star would you compare yourself to?
  • My boyfriend says I look like Sienna Miller, but I am highly doubtful of that. I wouldn't be able to compare myself to any film or TV star to be honest!

5. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be!?
  • Pale green.

6. Have you ever met anyone famous?
  • Only in art world terms, but I saw David Attenborough in Tate Britain.

7. Favourite book?
  • The Help.

8. What's your party trick?
  • I don't have one, but if  I throw a party you can guarantee there will be too much food.

9. Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
  • Scarily, I will be nearly 31 in 5 years, so I suppose at that point thinking about having children, a home that I own and maybe married, but I'm too scared! Career wise I hope to progress in my current job, because the people there are amazing.

10. What is your favourite movie quote?
  • Can I say music quote? Macklemore: 'Change the game, don't let the game change  you'.

11. And last but not least, what is one goal that you have set yourself for 2014?
  • To get fit and cut down on chocolate.

11 questions from Megan:
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
  • Zoella.

2. What are your favourite blog posts to write and why?
  • Probably homeware and health.

3. Name your top 3 Favourite blogs at the moment. 

4. Which Celebrity's makeup do you love?

5. Which Celebrity Style do you love? 
  • Kylie Jenner.

6. If you could take 3 items to a desert island what would you take and why? 
  • Phone, Water and Moisturiser.

7. Makeup or Fashion? 
  • Fashion

8. What is your dream job? 
  • Director of a Museum or Gallery.

9. Where in the world do you want to visit the most? 
  • Australia.

10. What tip would you give a newbie blogger knowing what you know now? 
  • Blog about what you love, not what everyone else is blogging about.

11. Last one so lets make it fun – do you have a party trick?? 
  • Nope, sorry!
