I've been nominated...

Angela, over at Little Apple Tree, nominated me for a Liebster Award which I am thrilled about! Thank you Angela for considering me!

Liebster Award Blog Tag

What is a Liebster Award you may ask? I'll let Angela explain (hope she doesn't mind).

"The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Apparently “liebster” is German for “sweetheart”. This award is the “sweetheart blog award” then.  I'm not sure I've ever been considered "up and coming" before--how fabulous!"

The rules are
1) Link back to the person who nominated you
2) List 11 facts about yourself (optional)
3) Answer the 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you for an award
4) Nominate 11 blogs/bloggers who have 200 or fewer followers
5) Think up 11 different questions for the people you are nominating to answer
6) Notify your nominees so they can join in!

1) Little Apple Tree - I think you should give Angela's lifestyle blog a read!

2) 11 facts about me.

1. I am happily loved up with my boyfriend and we are currently saving for a house.
2. My favourite film is View from the Top.
3. I love the TV series Castle.
4. My Iphone is permanently by my side, if I lost it I would cry.
5. I have an obsession with nail varnishes, I would say I have over 250 now. When we get the house there is going to be a polish room ;)

7. I love broccoli and cabbage.
8. I graduated last year with a 2:1 degree in Leadership and Management.

10. I like cooking and can't wait to have my own kitchen.

3) My answers!

1. Gold or silver? 
Has to be silver! Much cheaper and easier to wear.

2. Tell me one of your pet peeves.
People walking slow.

3. Are you a glass half-full or a glass half-empty person?
I like to think of myself as a glass half full kind of person. I'm alway pretty optimistic and always try to look on the brightside.

4. Countryside or city?
Ooh toughy, I'd probably say city because I couldn't be disconnected from the world living in the countryside!

5. Do you sing in the shower?
Obviously! ;)

6. What are your ambitions for your blog?
I just hope to continue growing. I am one of those people who gets a hobby and after a few months gets bored. As this is my space to work with and develop I want to stay committed and make my blog grow!

7. Star Trek or Star Wars?
I'd have to say Star Wars only because I haven't seen Star Trek...

8. Who is your favourite actor?
Denzel Washington, love that man. Trying to collect and watch all his films. I'm doing pretty well so far!

9. How do you spend your free time?
I spend a lot of my time with my boyfriend out and about or in bed snuggled watching films. When I am not doing that I am out shopping or on my blog!

10.What is the most exciting thing you've ever done?
I'd have to say going to New York. I was so excited to go, not particularly impressed when I was there as I thought everywhere was going to be a huge movie set but after I realise how amazing it was and want to go back!

11. What's the worst Christmas present you ever received?
Maybe a bad perfume set? Nothing sticks in my mind as the worst!

  1. Thanks for answering my questions, Danni!

    I love Castle, too. And it stands up to re-watching lots, too, which is even better! Looking forward to the next season after the cliffhanger...

    I'm not fond of people walking slow, too. Or people who stop in the middle of the pavement for no apparent reason, and then you have to abruptly veer around them. V.annoying!

    Nice to learn more about you! xx

  2. Loved reading this! Also, I can't wait to have my own kitchen too so I can bake till my hearts content haha! :)
