The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is something that I'd heard of in passing but I'd never actually bothered to look up until Megan Hayes nominated me. Thanks for that by the way!

Rules (Copied from Megan Hayes' blog):
  • Thank and link the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions given by the nominator.
  • Nominate 11 small blogs (under 200 followers) who you think deserve this award.
  • Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
  • Notify nominees via social media/blogs. 

What is your favourite book?
As weird as this sounds, I discovered my favourite books (I can't decide on just one) when I was in Secondary School and Sixth Form. My favourite books are To Kill A Mockingbird and The Kite Runner. 

If you could meet anyone, who would you meet?
Ooh, another tough one! I'd love to meet Mark Gatiss as an intellectual choice because I just think he'd be really interesting to talk to but for a less intellectual reason I would love to meet Ashton Irwin, his giggle is adorable!

Favourite perfume?
Probably DKNY Delicious, it's sweet but not overpoweringly so. My mum always gets it for her birthday and since she leaves it lying around everywhere, I always end up using it.

Are you a dog or a cat person (or neither aha)?
I'm not great with animals but if I had to choose between the two I would say I am a dog person. I grew up knowing my dad wasn't particularly keen on cats so I just sort of grew accustomed to not liking cats.

Do you have any hobbies?
I only really have blogging as a hobby but I love attending concerts too, I'm going to three this year; McBusted, S Club 7 and Nicki Minaj (quite a mix, I know!).

Best memory?
I suppose I would have to say going on a caravan holiday with my best friend and her family, it was just fantastic to be able to spend time together not tainted by exams or any other stressing activities.

What is your favourite TV programme?
I have more than just one, it's impossible to pin point one but if I absolutely HAD to choose; Sherlock.

Nicest person you know?
I don't want to answer this one, I feel like I might insult someone if I don't say them... I would either say my best friend Katy or my relatively new blogging friend AJ. 

How would you describe yourself?
I think I'm quite quirky, useless with directions, good at listening and a bit on the lazy side if I'm being totally honest.

Favourite outfit?
I recently bought a tartan dress from Primark for only £3 on the January sales, I love tartan anyway so it my favourite outfit was always going to be to do with tartan. I like to wear that with black tights, my leather jacket and my black wedges.

What would be your ideal holiday?
I'd utterly adore going to Hong Kong, my gran moved there over a decade ago and I've never visited her so it would be fantastic to go over there and have her show me the sights.

I nominate:
Sorry I haven't nominated 11, it's difficult to remember everyone's names and blog addresses!

What type of music do you listen to? Include examples.
What is your favourite movie?
What three places would you put at the top of your travel bucket list?
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
What's your dream job?
Who is your hero/inspiration?
