Liebster Award...

I hope you are all enjoying the A.MAZING weather here in the UK?! (For those of you overseas, we aren't used to this and are all smiley and dressing like we are on our jollies!!)

As I was sat in the office today, my phone piped up to let me know I'd had a tweet...It was from the lovely Sophie at La Vie Sophie..she'd only gone and nominated me for the Liebster Award!! 

The award aims to promote up and coming bloggers (only those with under 200 Google followers can be nominated) so we all get a chance to find some new reading material and promote the lesser known blogs too!

So here are the rules:
  1. Nominees must answer 11 questions asked by the blogger that nominated them.
  2. You need to choose 11 blogs with under 200 followers to pass the award onto and let them know you've nominated them by commenting on their blog.
  3. Come up with 11 new questions for them to answer.
('fessing up... I'd been nominated previously and didn't really understand it so did nowt with it...I'm sorry!)

Here's the questions that Sophie has given me, along with my answers..;

Q1. What TV advert annoys you the most?
A1. That's easy...GO COMPARE although, favour it more now since they took a cannon to the guy!

Q2. When you were younger, did you always insist on having the cereal that had a toy in it?
A2. Errrr, YEAH!!! Frostie's used to do plastic things that went on the spokes of your bike and made clicking noises...There was a whole range to collect!!

Q3. What's your earliest memory?
A3. I'm lucky enough to have loads of incredible childhood memories, I'm not sure which is the earliest... One that feels like yesterday is being about 3/4 years old, having to go with my dad whilst he was driving the 'bingo coach' one night (I can't remember why I wasn't at home with my mum). I remember being all wrapped up in my duffle coat (the one with toggles to fasten) and I sat behind my dad as he drove around and collected the 'old ladies'... One lovely lady offered me a sweet which, I took because I didn't want to be rude but (in the smoothest move ever) hid it up my sleeve until she'd gone as I'd always been told not to except sweets off strangers!! 

Q4. If you were a man for the day, what would you do?
A4. I'd do all the DIY in my house...(I'm guessing that sitting on the sofa and scratching my bits is not an appropriate answer...?)

Q5. Have you ever done an extreme sport?
A5. I did a para sail in Mauritius, I screamed for the entire duration and then when I touched down proclaimed how much I loved it! Apart from that, my personal trainer has me throwing kettlebells around, that feels fairly extreme!!

Q6. If you could be another blogger, who would you be?
A6. Without wanting to sound/be arrogant, I am really happy with my blog as it's fun and true to me buuuuut, my fave (massive) crush at the moment is Aimee Song of Songs Of Style

Q7. If you could only drink one drink for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A7. Hmmmm, until recently I'd have said Champagne but it gives me one hell of a hangover!! That takes me to my two remaining drinks of choice; Cider and vodka, lime and lemonade...Yep, I'll go with the vodka combo, less calories!!

Q8. Do you like ice cream with hot desserts or not?
A8. Yes, warm sticky toffee pudding and vanilla ice-cream, it was the desert at my wedding!...(glad I went with the vodka now based no the calories associated with this!..)

Q9. Would you ever go to a restaurant or the cinema on your own?
A9. I do restaurants on my own quite often when I stay away with work... But yeah, I'd do both.

Q10. If I gave you £1000 and 24 hours to spend it, how would you spend it?
A10. I'm torn...Honestly, if I'd got £1,000 right now I'd take my sister shopping for a whole new wardrobe. She recently had a (most gorgeous) little boy and needs some serious pamper! My second choice (not because it's any less important) would be to buy a return flight to Oz and give my best friend a rib cracking hug and then go shopping with the leftover money together!!

Q11. Do you prefer crunchy or smooth peanut butter?
A11. Smooth, I love (and only eat) Skippy smooth peanut butter!

I have really enjoyed this and I hope it's given you more of an insight to me...(shopping habits aside!)..

So, here's my 11 questions for the bloggers below (make sure you check them out too!);

Q1. What's been your best sale buy this season?
Q2. Flats or heels?
Q3. Why did you start blogging?
Q4. What's on your wish list for the AW season?
Q5. If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Q6. Where do you get your style inspiration?
Q7. Who would you most like to meet in the fashion world and why?
Q8. Sweet or savoury?
Q9. Cocktails and dancing or, quiet meal and a DVD?
Q10. If you could choose a fashion era to style and wear, what would it be?
Q11. Do you have any weird talents?

I nominate;

Belle of Honeybelle
Christina of Just So Fashion
Joanna of Poppys Style
Nia of Fashfoodista

  1. Haha I love you appropriate and inappropriate answers to the man question!
    Your first memory is so sweet and very well behaved!

    Great answers and fab questions for the next lot.

    Sophs x

    1. HAHA, thanks! I wrote and deleted it twice and then thought what the hell, it's me!

      Thank you, the questions are really hard to do!


  2. Thannnnnk-Q my lovely!!!

    Your questions are sick....(the best I've seen so far to be honest!)

    And a PT? Jell to the max :)
    No wonder you have a hot bod!

    I'm gonna do my upmost to get on these answers but don't hate me if I end up sunbathing and eating Magnums all weekend :)


    1. You are very welcome sweets!! Thanks, it took some serious work to come up with them!

      Erm yeah, I had to take a PT on when the clothes got tighter... It's cheaper than buying a whole new wardrobe ;-)

      I don't blame you for stuffing Magnums and sunbathing...x

  3. Thank you so much for nominating me Karen :) Checked my blog stats yesterday and was wondering what the hell had happened - I haven't posted in days and I had more views than ever! I saw they were all referrals from your site so thank you for that. I will do my best to get this up over the weekend - very exciting!


    1. You are really welcome!! I did comment on your blog post with the FC dress last night (which looks amazing btw) but i checked today and it wasn't on there?!

      I"m glad you got some new views, that's what this is all about! ;-)

      I look forward to seeing yours x

    2. Hmm i'm not sure what's happened there? I don't have any comments to approve...

      Yep, it is quite hard at the beginning to get people reading and following so I'm grateful for that.

      Have a great weekend :)


  4. Thanks so much for the nomination hun, your included on my latest post, check it out!

    All of your nominations were awesome picks, a fact that I've highlighted to my readers too!!!
