The Liebster Award

I recently got nominated for The Liebster Award by Rina over here which is super cute of her. I actually was a bit like 'awwh, a what now?' at first because I wasn't too sure what it meant, but basically...

The Liebster Award is given to new bloggers with less than 200 followers to help promote and support new blogs (ooo lovely).

The rules:
- You gotsta link the gorgeous person who nominated you
- Write 11 random facts about yourself
- Answer 11 questions from your previously mentioned gorgeous nominator
- Make your own amazeball questions for your own 11 nominees
Not sure why it's 11, but we can roll with that...

11 random facts about me:

1. I am always cropping/angling my pictures to disguise my above average sized forehead (we measured it in school once and I quickly became a fan of fringes)
2. All my family have 2 middle names
3. I love Molly from the Saturdays
4. I wish I was in the Saturdays
5. I am musically challenged (I can't play any instruments and I can't dance either)
6. Every time I buy a lottery ticket I automatically decide what I am going to do when I win (still waiting...)
7. I have been with my boyfriend since I was 16 years old
8. I love baked goods. I am drawn to bakeries
9. I am an awkward hugger/greeter. Especially, with new people
10. Occasionally I wish I was born in a different era. The kind where everyone wore amazing dresses and you went ball room dancing instead of clubbing and doing tequila shots
11. I am always laughing. I'm pretty sure me and all my friends think we are hilarious

My questions from the lovely Rina:

1. How long have you been blogging and why did you start? I think I have been blogging for about 2 months now. I started because I was reading lots of blogs and felt like I needed to do something creative myself, so viola here it is.
2. How would you describe your style? Hmmm tricky question! Shirts and tailored jackets are a huge part of my style. I think I maybe have a classic meets casual style (basically, who knows!)
3. What/who inspires your blog? I read a bunch of blogs, so definitely fellow bloggers! I try to write stuff that I think I would want to read or know about
4. What's the most memorable outfit you have ever worn? When I was younger I had this fleece with stars on that I decided was magic in some way (what a nutter!) and I remember being gutted when it fell apart
5. What one item couldn't you live without? There are loads of stuff I would love to say, especially make up! But, I think I would say my childhood teddy who takes residence in my room still
6. What is your favorite Fashion Magazine, and is there a specific reason? I am a fan of more mag, as their men overheard section is too funny. Also, they don't have such a big focus on designer goods which I can never afford!
7. If you could have any celebrity wardrobe who's would it be and why? Ahh so many people! I think I would say Lauren Conrad. I think she has serious style and she always wears things that I love
8. What are your favorite songs at the moment? I'm liking Gabrielle Aplin's 'Please don't say you love me' and The Tallest Man On Earth's 'King of Spain' at the mo
9 Cupcakes or doughnuts? CAKE
10. Early Mornings or Late nights? Late nights as I struggle to get up, but I love it when the day lasts forever because you got up nice and early
11. Describe your perfect day... All my friends and family, breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, cocktails, sunshine and some music

Good questions! My questions are (drum roll)...

1. If you could change your name to anything, what would you choose?
2. What is your favorite thing about being a blogger?
3. The classic, you are stuck on a dessert island. What 5 items would you take?
4. You can only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what do you choose?
5. What is your worst habit?
6. What is your favorite make up brand and why?
7. The best holiday you ever had was...?
8. What do you want to achieve in 2013?
9. What is your favorite film and why?
10. Who is your favorite celebrity and why?
11. If you could compare yourself to a tv character, who would it be and why?
