Liebster Award // Answering a few questions

11 May 2014

So Emilovely nominated me for an award called the Liebster award, which I'm sure most of you have probably come across already. It's a lovely idea that circulates around the blogging community to help you get to know new bloggers, and consists of eleven questions about yourself.

1. What is your favourite TV show?
My all time favourites would have to be Desperate Housewives, Friends and One Tree Hill. Currently I'm chuckling my way through The Trip to Italy, aka the genius comedy series with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan which is on BBC iplayer right now.
2. If you had the opportunity to start your own business right now, what would it be?
That's a tricky one. Although I am creative and love designing, I would never call myself a talented designer and I I will always be better as an creative ideas thinker rather than a designer. For that reason I don't have an immediate path I'd like to take creatively. My first instinct is to say that I'd love to own my own marketing company, but I'm still a student and haven't delved into it properly yet so who knows really!
3. How would you describe your style/ fashion sense? 
This makes me laugh because if you asked me the same question two years ago I would probably be sat head to toe in Hollister. Urgh. Nowadays I'd say I'm quite girly and floral.
4. What is your favourite type of flower?
Okay so there's this flower that we have at home on our Portmeirion plates (you know the flowery ones that EVERY family seems to own), it's purple and yellow and I believe it's called a Viola. I love this partly for the unique mix of purple and yellow (google it) and partly for the cool name. I haven't actually seen one in real life though so maybe I'd have to give a second option for anyone that wants to send me flowers in the future (hint hint): I enjoy Roses, Pansies, and my favourite bouquet colour combinations are whites with reds and pinks.
5. How would your friends and family describe you in 4 words?
I just asked my housemate this, and her answers were: intelligent, bubbly, caring and funny.
6. What is your signature makeup look?
95% of the time it's either nothing or just powder, blusher and mascara. I have pretty dark eyes naturally so when I go out I'd say my signature look is definitely a toned down smokey eyes.
7. If you could meet any designer or makeup artist, dead or alive, who would it be?
Ever since I saw Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl wearing this Marc Jacobs dress, I was in love. So it'd have to be Marc Jacobs, and our meeting would preferably also include the designing of a new fragrance based on me.
8. What is your favourite place or dream destination to travel to?
My favourite place is Lake Garda in Northern Italy which is just incredible. My dream destination would have to be the big sights in America: New York, LA, Florida, and I'd also love to visit Australia and New Zealand. 
9. If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Probably Move on Up by Curtis Mayfield... it's upbeat enough to keep my mood levels high but not too much that it would wind me up.
10. Describe your ideal morning?
An ideal morning in my house would involve waking up at 9am to a big batch of Pancakes with golden syrup ready for me in the kitchen along with a tasty berry smoothie. Then I'd probably spend the rest of the morning in a coffee shop with a friend. Simple.
11. What advice would you give to other new bloggers?
Just do it. Stop being afraid about what people think, and if you're really worried then only tell your closest friends until you feel comfortable telling the rest. Get a notebook, stop reading other blogs for a day, go out for a walk or meet a friend and just brainstorm ideas.

I nominate:
Steph from Lay it Bare (this might help with your BEDM!)
Jes from Naturally Jes
& anyone else who wants to do it..

There's no obligation, so don't feel like you have to!

My questions for my nominees are as follows:
1. What would you say is your biggest achievement in life so far?
2. How would your friends describe you in four words?
3. Describe your perfect meal.
4. If you had the opportunity to start your own business right now, what would it be?
5. Describe your fashion sense.
6. If you won the lottery right now, how would you use the money?
7. Describe your perfect evening.
8. What is your favourite place or what would be your dream destination to travel to?
9.  What is your favourite type of post to write & why?
10. What do you hope to gain most out of blogging?
11. What advice would you give to new bloggers?

  1. My dream travel list is identical to yours. My family travel to Lake Garda all the time, but I've never had the chance to go!

  2. I used to be really into Hollister as well, now I'd never wear it!

    1. Tell me about it. I think we all were though and to be quite honest I still wear their jeans because they're a great fit for me and they also have some really adorable floral/lacy vest tops.. so I do occasionally wear their stuff :P
