The Liebster Award….Again!

By The Persephone Complex @hollycassell

Okay, so I’m not sure if this is against the rules or whatever, but I don’t care anyway! The three lovely ladies behind Carrie:Brighton, My Dearest Friend and Fly Away Vintage, have all nominated me for the Liebster award, and even though I already did it a couple of weeks ago for Andini Ria, I’m so flattered that people like my blog enough to nominate me FOUR TIMES that I couldn’t possibly let it go without showing how grateful I am! So the least I can do is answer all their questions. For those who don’t know that much about me, this will probably be a really helpful post…but I’ll totally forgive you if you get bored of hearing me talk about myself and want to scoot off somewhere else instead! I also wanted to do this because it gives me the chance to choose another 11 bloggers to nominate-the first 11 really wasn’t enough, not by a long-shot. So here goes. By the end of this mammoth questionnaire, you’ll know me better than my Dad does.

Questions by Elle
  1. Name one of your obsessions Taking photos of everything, even the food I eat, lol
  2. Cats or dogs Cats cats cats! 
  3. What was the most life changing moment in your life? Impossible to answer. Maybe I’ll know in retrospect? 
  4. Most recent epic fail, haha. I went to have my hair dyed darker blonde and it became reddish brown instead…not happy 
  5. One thing you still don’t understand about anything I have a hard time understanding my own mind most of the time
