The Liebster Award.

Hello there lovelies

I was recently nominated twice for the Leibster Award by Kyla from Afternoons in my LBD and Ellie and Brooke from Ginger and the Blonde. I thought I would do the two sets of questions in one post rather than separate posts. So here we go….

The Rules.

·      Make a post about the Leibster Award and thank the blogger who nominated you
·      Write 11 interesting things about yourself
·      Answer the 11 questions created by the blogger who nominated you
·      Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and notify them about the nomination
·      Write 11 new questions for your nominees

11 facts about me.

1.I hate the number 3, I don’t know why I just don’t like it. If I have a biscuit I have to have 2 or 4 but I can’t have 3 or bad things will happen (they won’t).

2.I can’t stand dried fruit, I wish I liked it because Christmas puddings and fruit cake look lovely but just the thought of it being in my mouth makes me heave.

3.I don’t own a single onsie, never even tried one on.

4.I’m a qualified midwife.

5.I have 2 children (girls).

6.I love Chinese food.

7.I love things with birds on (hence my blog).

8.I hate it when people are late.

9.I can’t get into an unmade bed, if I don’t make it all day I’ll make it before I get into it at night.

10.I love the smell of washing that has been dried outside.

11.I watch way too much tele.

Questions from Kyla.

1.If you could only wear one make-up product for the rest of your life what would it be and why? (e.g. mascara, lipgloss etc)

Mascara, I think it completely changes the way my eyes look, I don’t feel like I’m wearing makeup without mascara.

2.Who is your favorite high-fashion designer?

I don’t really go for designer clothes, as I just prefer high street fashion. But I love Louboutin shoes.

3.If you could live anywhere in the entire world where would you go?

Australia. I love their way of life and could happily adopt that lifestyle.

4.What cities have you been to? Which was your favorite and why!

Really boring but London and Paris. When I go on holiday I tend to go on relaxing beach type holidays. I love London and Paris equally.

5.Who do you look up to?

My parents, always there when I need help or advice.

6.What is your all time favorite piece of clothing and when did you get it?

Black skinny jeans from Miss Selfridge. I got my first pair in 2012 and have bought 2-3 pairs since.

7.If you could announce one thing to the entire world, what would you say?

I’ve got a blog, because nobody I know knows I write a blog.

8.Who is your celebrity crush?

Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco, OMG I’m totally in love with him.

9.What is your favorite make-up brand?

MAC- enough said.

10.What would you order if you were at a 5 star restaurant and everything was free?

Starter- Calamari
Main- Beef Rendang curry
Dessert- Tarte Tatin
Or I would use it as an opportunity to try things I never have before.

11.And finally, who would you choose to spend a day with if you could pick anyone dead or alive? 
(I know its very "middle school essay" but I think it's fun)

Brendon Urie- I could listen to his voice all day or Jennifer Worth.

Questions from Ginger and the Blonde.

1.What is your favourite thing about blogging?

Trying to be creative with photos and the support from the blogging community, if I've got a question I know I can just ask on twitter and will normally get a response.

2.Cats or dogs?

I love all animals, I’m a real animal person. I had cats growing up and loved them so much and I’ve got a dog now (a little 4 year old Chihuahua) and love her to bits, I think I’m more of a dog person as I can’t walk past a dog without stroking it, I just love their little personalities.

3.What is your favorite film?

Probably Forest Gump (I love Tom Hanks) but I also love The Notebook, The Holiday and The Devil Wears Prada.

4.What are the best books you have read recently?

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch, it’s absolutely brilliant, I’m reading the second one now.

5.If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I’d love to go all over, but mostly Australia to go diving and the Far East (mainly for the food).

6.What is your all time favourite beauty product?

Probably YSL Touche Éclat concealer.

7.Tea or coffee?

Definitely tea, I love it, I easily drink 10 cups a day even in summer.

8.Who inspires you?

Its more a case of what doesn’t inspire me, people who actually do something about their lives rather than sitting there and expecting things to happen without them putting any effort in. You reap what you sow.

9.What is your guilty pleasure?

Dance Moms, I’m so addicted to that programme, if you follow me on twitter you will have seen my tweets about it. It’s just completely addictive.

10.If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Jennifer Worth because I think she would be really interesting to talk to, Florence Nightingale or someone that was on the Titanic.

11.What is your favourite Lush product?

Confession time- I’ve never tried any Lush products. I have really sensitive skin and it all seems so perfumed that just walking past a shop makes me itch, I’d love to try some stuff though as it all smells lovely.

Thankyou very much to those who nominated me, I’m very flattered. I’ve been having trouble finding people to nominate due to the 200 follower rule and people being nominated several times before but they are….
