Liebster Award

Hiya everyone!

So I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Sindhu! I was really happy for this nomination and it was a lovely surprise!

Sindhu's blog is a new discovery of mine but she posts lovely blogs about DIY and beauty/lifestyle and is really nice! You can read her blog here:

So here are the rules for the award:

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award &
you choose to accept it,
write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will help you out as well.
Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
Nominate 5 to 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less readers/followers.
List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.)
Answer the questions asked of you by the Blogger who gave you this award.
Once you have written and published the post, inform the blogger that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link to your blog post.

1. Tell us something about you. So we can know you!
I'm a big fan of chicken, it's probably my favourite food tbh. I also have a huge amount of love for Nandos and Dixy Chicken...

2. What is your blogging inspiration?
My blogging inspirations come from a variety of places. Sometimes motivational quotes or song lyrics can inspire me with mental health or uplifting posts, also my own experiences can inspire me to write about things. In terms of people, a lot of my favourite YouTubers inspire me to talk about things I like and enjoy. Zoe Sugg has been a massive inspiration for many reasons.

3. Where do you see your blog in 5 years?
I'm not great at thinking that far ahead, but hopefully, in April 2021, in 5 years time my blog will be more successful and I'll feel like I've done more with it and accomplished some of my goals and hopefully managed to control my anxiety better! I feel slightly sick thinking 2021 is only 5 years away. What. Even. Also I'll be turning 25 that year oh my gosh.

4. Do you like collaborating with other blogs? If so, on what topics?
I like collaborating with other blogs although I've not really done one lately! I'd love to collaborate with someone so let me know if you wanna! Some topics that would be nice would be mental health, beauty and lifestyle! Basically whatever we could agree on or both have something to say!

5. One place on earth you would love to visit before you turn 50?
I really really want to visit Disneyland at some point in my life! It looks so so good and I think it would be amazing!!

6. One thing that makes you happy all the time?
Music is something which makes me happy probably all the time as there's so many songs out there that I'm bound to find one that makes me feel even just a little bit better. It's a huge part of my life.

7. Your favourite skincare product?
I love my Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating moisturiser. I really need to invest in more skin products but the problem is they are usually quite pricey as expected to be honest because skin care is an important regime and to have the best care, the higher priced products tend to be better quality and more nourishing.

8. Your favourite makeup product?
My favourite makeup product, now there's a tricky question haha!! Probably either my Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara or my Palmers Cocoa Butter lipbalm as it does wonders for my lips!!

9. Your favourite YouTuber?
Tricky question!! I have a lot of favourite youtubers but the shortest list I can compile of them is Zoella, The SacconeJolys, Dan & Phil, Velvetgh0st, SprinkleofGlitter, MakeupbyLeina, Neesey, Eve Bennett, Heart, Lilly Singh, Patricia Bright.

10. Your favourite person?
I'm not sure I have 1 specific favourite person in my life right now, there are a lot of fabulous people I know which could be classed as a favourite person!!

The questions I have provided for my nominees are:
1. Your favourite YouTuber?
2. The last makeup item you bought was..?

3. Your favourite types of blog posts to read?
4. Favourite holiday you've ever been on? 
5. 5 of your favourite songs are..?
6. If you could collaborate with any blogger or YouTuber, would you choose and why?
7. Last concert you attended was..?
8. Favourite drinks..?
9. Favourite thing that's happened in 2016 so far?
10. Which of your blog posts are you most proud of?

I've nominated some blogs, I didn't pick them based on how many followers they have or anything like that, I just picked based on their blogs and if I liked them.
Blogs I nominate are:

Love & hugs
