Liebster Award!

Hello my lovely followers. I can only apologise for my lengthy absence from my blog, I have been extremely busy and stressed out over the past few months and can only apologise and assure you that I am back to stay! 

What a pleasant surprise upon my return I found that the lovely Little Miss Pipedream has nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is so so kind of her! 

So here's what I've got to do: 
♥ Each nominee must answer 11 questions that were asked by the blogger that nominated them
 You must choose 11 bloggers who have under 200 followers to pass the award onto
♥ Then come up with 11 questions that they will answer
♥ Go to their page and tell them that you have nominated them
♥ No tag backs 

Here are the blogs which I am nominating:

For you lovely people I have nominated - here are my 11 questions: 
Q1: Do you speak any other languages? 
Q2: What's your favourite season, and why? 
Q3: What do you love most about blogging/your blog? 
Q4: Where do you want to go most in the whole world? 
Q5: Who are your top 5 favourite bands/artists? 
Q6: What's your favourite thing to do on a hot summers day?
Q7: Do you have any weird talents? 
Q8: What do you look for in a best friend? 
Q9: Did anyone inspire you to start your blog? 
Q10: What is your favourite book, and why? 
Q11: If you won the lottery what would you do with the money? 

Here are my answers to Little Miss Pipdream's questions:

Q1: Why did you start blogging? 
I started my blog because I was so inspired by other bloggers and youtubers such as Zoella, Tanya and Louise and their gorgeous blogs that I decided it might be something I would enjoy seeing as I love beauty and I love writing! 

Q2: The movie that changed you (or got close to)? 
I'm going to have to say my favourite film The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's such a beautiful film and I can't describe how it had an impact on my life, but it just really did. So if any of you guys haven't yet seen it then definitely go and give it a watch! 

Q3: Favourite sweets?
I'm not actually the biggest fan of sweets, I'm more of a chocolate person really. However I am partial to those really fizzy strawberry laces that you can get in Sainsburys, especially when I'm travelling in the car or by train

Q4: Do you do any sports?
I would so love to say yes, but I can't. I really am not a sporty person.. I do enjoy exercise, but I suck at sport and pretty much always have. I did used to horseride when I was younger for 6 years, but I had to stop that due to schoolwork and expense

Q5: What is the place of the world that you believe is made just for you?
There's a beach somewhere in Anglesey in Wales where I went about 4 or 5 years ago with my family, and one night I went down there at sunset ahead of my parents with my iPod in really loudly. I sat on the pebbles on the beach and made a heart out of sand whilst watching the sunset, and I have honestly never been so relaxed in my life. So I would probably say that beach  

Q6: Favourite beverage?
Non-Alcoholic: Tea 
Alcoholic: Pimms (especially the limited edition Blackberry and Elderflower - yum yum) 

Q7: What were your best holidays ever? ..And now tell us why!
My all time favourite holiday would probably have to be Sri Lanka. Purely because it was so amazing and I saw so many things I never thought I would see, and learnt so much about the culture that it just blew my mind! 

Q8: Last concert you've been to?
I'm pretty sure that it was Slam Dunk festival which I went to with my boyfriend, where there was a number of bands such as Sleeping With Sirens, Deaf Havana and Kids In Glass Houses. It was fab

Q9: A childhood memory..?
This is totally random but it's the first one that I can think of. I must have been about 5, and we had driven to my uncle's house for his 40th birthday party, and I had been asleep in the car all the way there but when I woke up we were there but my parents had obviously already got out of the car and left me in there with the doors locked.. I thought they had just abandoned me and cried for about half an hour before they came back for me - great parenting guys!

Q10: Do you sing and/or dance under the shower?
Oh yes, loudly and badly

Q11: Last trip?
That would be to Durham. It's only an hour or so from where I live, but it was with  my friend so we could look at the university and it was a nice day out, it's such a gorgeous place that means a lot to me

Can't wait to read your answers! Thanks again to Little Miss Pipedream for nominating me for this!
