Liebster Award

Liebster award  
I've been incredibly lucky to be nominated for a Liebster award from two lovely bloggers, Efia & Gina But honestly when I first received a tweet from Gina, I had absolutely no clue what this was all about. After reading about it however, I've discovered that it's a lovely way for bloggers with less than 200 followers to get recognised for their blogging efforts :) & I'm so very thankful to both of you for nominating me, and also to all who are reading my blog. So here are the rules:  1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves  2. They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them 3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag 4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers to tag 5. These lucky bloggers must be told  6. There are no tag backs My world consists of 11 things: Tetley tea - I feel like I'm cheating on Yorkshire tea, but honestly Tetleys the daddy  Home cooking - Since moving out into the big bad world on my own, I've taught myself how to cook. & I'm so extraordinarily cocky about my skills that I've even applied for Come Dine with Me!  A cow obsession - This has developed since I moved from fashion city to rural town.. The creatures are just so darn cute! & as a result I now have several onesies, pairs of slippers, posters, teddies etcc.. Dancing - Before moving to university, I was part of a dance school for 8 years. Even now, 3 years after leaving I still shimmy about my flat to old songs we had routines to.  Photography - To be fair my photography skills are pretty poor, and I can't be trusted with anything technological. Never the less, I do love taking pictures and documenting anything and everything in photographs.  Fashion and beauty - Obviously, a girls favorite topics. I hope to go on from my degree to become a feature writer for a fashion or lifestyle magazine. Pipe dream but until then, I'll blog my butt off instead (& continue to drain my bank balance with new products)  Reading nonsense - My Kindle is my favorite gadget & I0m always found either drinking tea or with my nose glued to its screen. I'm also partial to a good old library book or two.  Writing - I have written my own fictional story.. But it still needs some work. Maybe someday soon I will release it and let you guys have a neb. I'm my own worst critic.  Family & Friends - I wouldn't function with them. Especially my bonkers Mama, she’s amazing & did I mention crazy? Yeah she's a loopy bird.  My boyfriend Dan (The Creature) - An awesome dude & almost always on my wavelength, which is rare! He's my best friend as well as my fella -n'aww soppy- Questions for me, from best new beauty reviews – by Gina My questions for those I'm tagging are:    1. What one thing are you the most passionate about?  Probably reading, I love finding new books, and old classics for that matter. Anything that really makes me think or challenges me  2. If you could be any celebrity who would it be?  Ooo ouch, that’s a tough one.. I think it would have to be Holly Willoughby. She’s sexy, sophisticated and a fantastic role model to the younger generation. 3. Do you religiously follow fashion trends or just go with what suits you?  I tend to stick with classic cuts that suit my curves. But if a new trend comes out with a funky twist on a classic, I'm all for following the crowd 4. What was/is your favorite subject at school?  Art, I was one of the best in my class back in the day so it gave me a major confidence boost in high school.. Although now I am at university I would have to say my favorite subject is magazine design & production.  5. Who is the one person in your life you could go to with any problem? My Mama, there’s nothing that phases her. If I have a problem & it’s particularly sensitive, embarrassing or difficult she’s always calm and helps me out in any way she can. 6. Do you have a signature scent?  Yes I do. I've had a love affair with CKin2u for going on 5 years! I always end up with several bottles for xmas and if I wear anything else, The Creature always tells me I smell weird :)  7. What is your best beauty find of all time?  Probably Maybelline dream matte mousse. My skin is awfully sensitive and prone to dry patches, but dream matte seems to be the only foundation that I've ever really religiously bought.  8. Who do you live with?  I live with 5 other girls ina (slightly mental) student flat in Huddersfield, however it does mean I can get the girls to test out new products with me and get some great reviews! 9. What's your favorite type of blog post to write?  Probably lifestyle, although I post about beauty and fashion lots too. My blog is all about 6 resolutions and my life in-between so it gives me room to write about anything I fancy. 10. What's your favorite TV show?  Game of Thrones.. Nerdy, yes. But after reading the books I was hooked and the TV show hasn't disappointed either. I'm also partial to a Friend’s marathon or two too.. 11. Do you have a hidden talent? I wouldn't say it was a hidden talent as such, but I first came to uni to study costume & textiles, but after the first year I applied for Journalism because I found I was a dab hand at writing (and hated costume with burning passion in the end). I suppose my hidden talent is my imagination. I'm quite creative, and it’s helped push me on the right path for my future career Questions for me, from Effy talks life – by Efia (1) What make-up product could you not live without? As I said above, Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is probably my most bought make-up product. Although if you can class chocolate Vaseline as make-up, I seriously cannot live without that either.  (2) What is your favorite meal? Lasagne. Hands down one the greatest culinary creations of all time..
Italy, I thank you!
(3) How would you spend £100? I'd like to say I'd invest it, like any smart person would do... But as a poor student I'd probably treat me and the creature to some new clobber or a fancy meal out :) (4) If you had to live in another era which would you choose, and why? The 50's , I would love to have been a pin up girl. So much so that I've had a pin up shoot earlier this year and am currently working my little butt off to pay for prints!  (5) What do you hope to gain from blogging? My blog started out as a way for me to improve and practice my writing skills for University. But now I'm just doing this for myself. I'm not going to be a blogger who will get a massive following, I'm too erratic and haphazard for that, but I love the little following I have & all the girls who have given me such lovely feedback and support. The blogging community is amazing! & I hope to gain some more friends.  (6) What's your favorite book? The secret Garden, it’s a British classic & was the first book I read that made me cry. (7) If you had one day left to live how would you spend it? Eating all my favorite foods, and sky diving in my favourite frock and heels. (8) What's the craziest thing you've ever done? If I told you.. I'd have to kill you.
I joke.
Errmm probably the craziest thing would have to be, climbing out off a balcony to get pizza after we broke the door handle to our flat in Faliraki.
(9) What are you pet peeves? People picking their fingers, ooooft it goes straight through me. That, and really over enthusiastic displays of affection.. Yes, I have a boyfriend & enjoy a cheeky peck whilst out every now and again.. But I still refrain from eating his face in the que for Burger King.  (10) First song lyrics that come to your head? Say my name!As every color illuminates!We are shining!And we’ll never be afraid again! Florence & the Machine - Spectrum  (11) Can you do a cartwheel? No, which is a shameful fact... Especially because I had the cheek to call myself a dancer back in the day.. But I can do the splits.. Which is a plus? The girls I'm nominating for a Liebster are...
Drumroll please..
