Liebster Award.

At around midnight yesterday my email pinged to say I had a new comment on one of my blog posts - which is exciting in its self. However this comment was from the lovely TashEmily over at A World Full of Wonders  - if you haven't already, check out her blog - it's adorable - nominating me for the Liebster Award. 



I've seen this floating around the blogging world and I think it's pretty well known, but if you haven't heard of it these are the rules: 

  • You must answer all questions that are given to you 
  • You must link back to the person who nominated you 
  • When you finish this, you must nominate eleven bloggers who have less than 200 followers
  • Provide your nominees with eleven questions of your choice
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you 
  • You must inform your nominees that you have nominated them 
  • Provide your nominees with a link to your post for more information


So... The questions given to me are: 

If you could describe your blog in one word what would it be?

I would have to say "chatty" - I think most of my posts are generally just me chatting - but instead of talking, I'm writing. This may not make as much sense to anyone who may read this as it does in my mind... But yeah.. Chatty. Haha. 

Favourite clothing shop?

Umm.. At the moment I would probably say... Forever 21. I love the range of pretty and girly clothes they have on offer and the prices are student friendly too (Bonus!)

What was the last book you read?

I have recently finished reading "Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy" by Helen Fielding. After having this one my shelf for ages, I finally got around to reading this. Personally, I really enjoyed this book. It's easy to read and perfect for some bed time or on the beach reading. 

Who is your idol/inspiration?

I'm not sure if I really have an idol as such - But someone who inspires me is my mum (a little cheesy I know haha). But she really always has and does everything she can to support me (even if I'm just calling for a rant over nothing in particular) - and is always there to offer me honest advice.




Biggest phobia?

Now I have a couple of phobias but my biggest one - which I'll just warn you may sound a little odd - is a Zombie Apocalypse. The thought of Zombies or a Zombie apocalypse honestly terrifies me... I'm a huge fan of The Walking Dead (best show ever)  but watching it (or anything else zombie related for that matter) honestly gives me nightmares.. and yes I am 22 haha! In fact my fear is so huge that sometimes when I'm out and about I try and plan what I'd do if a zombie was to appear - crazy I know. 

Are you more likely to scream or laugh on a roller-coaster?

100% scream. I don't really like roller-coaster as I'm scared of heights so I would definitely be screaming a lot.. and possibly crying haha. 

Favourite T.V show?

As previously mentioned my favourite T.V show is by far The Walking Dead. Despite my huge fear of Zombies and not usually liking anything gory I LOVE this show. I have the first 3 seasons on DVD, am waiting for the 4th of cannot wait for the 5th to be aired.. If you haven't seen it... Go and watch it right now! 




Something you're looking forward to in the future?

Ooh there are lots of things I'm looking forward too.. but one thing I would chose is the point when I can (hopefully) have a little kitten of my own.. (hello crazy cat lady) and a puppy too. 

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I think everyone usually has a few things they'd like to change about themselves - even just teeny tiny things - but (without going into too much detail putting a downer on this post) I suffer with anxiety when in a situation I'm not comfortable with. It's not a massive issue and I know there are loads of people who suffer much worse - but it's enough to stop me from doing things I'd like to - especially those including travel or places I'm not familiar with. So I would take that away if I could. 

If you could only visit one place in the world - and then never leave your town/city again - where would you go?

Ooh this is a tough one... There are so many places I'd love to visit. If I had to narrow it down, I think it would have to be America. I've been to Florida previously, but I would love to road-trip around the of the the USA. 



What is the most important possession you own?

I'm not 100% if this counts as more than one possession - but I'd say the photos I have printed out is my most important possession(s). I love looking  back at the memories and think they're perfect to look at when feeling a little low. 

Thanks to TashaEmily for nominating me - I really enjoyed writing this and feel it's a good way to interact with other bloggers. 


My nominees are: 


  1. Cara from #lifeshaketogo
  2. Amy from Amy In Wonderland 
  3. Doireann from Life Beauty Blogger
  4. Christina May from Hey Christina May
  5. Kristine from Kristine

  7. Lauren from Lauren Gillies
  8. Urika from U is for Urika
  9. Chloe from Chloe Alice
  10. Sinéad from Miss forever chic 
  11. Jenna from The Domestic Diva Diaries 

And the questions for you to answer are:
  1. What inspired you to start your blog?
  2. What is your favourite film?
  3. Who is your favourite blogger?
  4. What is your favourite food?

      Aww I really want some, although I don't think my landlord will let me unfortunately..
      You definitely should start watching The Walking Dead, such an amazing show! x

  6. Damn, that sucks:( well whenever you can, definitely go for it! Only problem is, they cost a lot! Especially if you have two!
    Ooh, can you watch the first series anywhere for free? x

    1. Aww really? I'd be torn between getting one or 2, they're so cute.
      Apparently you can watching it on Netflix - but someone said its only the US version, but you can change the UK version to US apparently - and there might be a website somewhere but I'm not too sure sorry x

      Delete
    2. Yeah.. I guess your decision depends on money and whether you're going to be around much or not. We got two as we're hardly at home during the week (daytime) and so they can keep themselves company. But I've previously just had one and she was happy as larry! They find something to do whether there's two of them or just one:)
      Ooh, okay thanks! I'll check it out! x

      Delete
    3. Yeah with working full time I wouldn't want to be unfair to it, but hopefully in the not to distant future I can get one :)
      Aww so jealous... A house isn't right without a cute pet!
      That's okay :) x

      Delete
    4. Yeah, that's understandable:)
      Aw, that's so true! When my first cat passed, our house felt so empty as I'd grown up with her there! It's a really weird feeling! x

      Delete
    5. Aww I know what you mean, I have a cat at my parents house & it's so weird not having one in the flat!x
