So, first of all, a massive shout out to the fabulous Isabel at Boxes and Swatches for nominating my little blog for this fantastic award! You are AWESOME!
Now many of you must be thinking what the hell is a Liebster Award? Well, I said the same thing! The Liebster Award is a must do post for all bloggers. You will find all your favourite blogs will have been nominated at some point. The rules of this award are pretty simple!
You must acknowledge the fabulous blogger who nominated you.
You need to answer all 11 questions chosen by the nominating blogger.
You should then nominate 11 other bloggers.
Here is the fun bit! You get to choose 11 new questions to be answered!
So here are my answers!
What is your favourite book/s?
Now, this is a hard one! I read so much but I have managed to narrow it down to three! So if you know me you will know I am obsessed with Harry Potter. Now this next book was given to me by my mum when I was in my teens and it is called The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes. Based after the war had finished, the British Navy was transporting an army of Australian brides to the UK where their British military husbands were waiting for them. War time Britain is a time in history I have always said I would want to go back to so falling in love with this book was so easy. I have probably read it at least ten times by now. The third and final favourite book is Me Before You by Celia Ahearn. I’m sure you have all watched the film but I promise you the book is just better (don’t get me wrong I adore the film, it might just be my favourite) and had me in tears. So beautifully written Celia knows how to write a beautiful love story yet still talk about such a taboo subject in the most real and sensitive light.
What song/track can you listen to over and over again and not get bored?
Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond of course! Not only is it a brilliant song but the memories I have connected to this song just bring a massive smile to my face everytime I hear it.
Do you remember the first blog you ever read? If so, which one?
Honestly, I can’t remember.
Are you a spender or a saver?
Definitely a spender! It’s a terrible thing but I can’t help it!
Do you have a favourite magazine?
Now, I haven’t read a magazine for quite a while but my favourite magazine as a teen was Bliss and I can remember the only reason I bought my first issue was that it came with a Punky Fish make up bag!
What is your favourite font?
I wouldn’t say I have a favourite font per-say but I do love a good old fashion type writer style font!
What social network do you really hate/not get?
I must be the only person but Tumblr. Like I just don’t get it which considering it is a blog site is ridiculous!
Do you have a pet? If so, tell us about them. If no, do you want one?
Now I don’t have a pet, nor have I ever but I have always said I would like a pig. Not one of those silly micro pigs but a proper Gloucester Old Spot!
Do you prefer holidays somewhere hot or cold?
I’ve never actually been on holiday anywhere but the UK and they are neither hot or cold. I have always wanted to visit Iceland though so, for now, I will have to say cold!
What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
I’m terrible I hardly ever go to the cinema. The last time I went was for my birthday back in April with my awesome friend Cameron! Now we are both fans of anime (he is definitely a bigger fan than myself) so we went to see Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale. This was the first time I saw a subtitled film at the cinema. It was amazing!!!
If you could go back in time and give 16 year old you some advice, what would it be?
I have two pieces of advice for 16 year old me! The first is don’t ever under any circumstances believe you aren’t good enough. Don’t listen to those who love to put you down. The second is in about two years time when the guy with a big nose asks you over for a movie day say no, you will save yourself from a life time of pain.
So now it is my turn to choose the questions!!! Here is what I came up with:
Are you part of a fandom and if so which one/s?
Does pineapple belong on pizza?
Why do you blog?
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Where is the one place in the world you would like to travel to?
Who is your role model in life?
Who is your favourite author?
If you could be a Ben & Jerry’s flavour what would you be and why?
What is your favourite fragrance?
High heels or sneakers?
What is your dream in life?
Here are my nominations!
Ok I know in the rules I said I was supposed to nominate 11 bloggers 8 is close enough!!!
I look forward to reading all of your answers and congratulations on your nomination!!!
