The Liebster Award


I was nominated by the lovely Stephanie from Steph's Silver Lining to take part in the Liebster Award. I'm so flattered that she thought of me as I'm very new to the blogging world and she has an amazing blog which you should all go check out. Anyway onto the award, if you haven't heard of this before the rules are as follows:

  • You must answer 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
  • You must link back to the person that nominated you.
  • After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers (with under 200 followers) and give them 11 questions of your choice.
  • You can not nominate the person who nominated you.
  • You need to leave your nominees a link to your post so they can read the instructions and know what to do.


Question Time
What are you most scared about?
This is an easy one for me, the future scares me as I have no idea what I want to do career wise. Not knowing what lies ahead for me is a constant panic in the back of my mind although I take small comfort in knowing that the majority of people my age (20) are in exactly the same position.

List three things on your Bucket List.
As I absolutely love travelling, I would love to visit every continent in the world as I've only been to North America and Europe (where I live) before. This is a fairly standard one but I would like to own my own property at some point in the future. I love interior design and would love to have my own place to decorate and call my own. Lastly, something a little lighthearted but I have never seen any of the Star Wars films so would like to watch them all at some point.

Which Disney movie is your favourite?
Okay so I may have to cheat on this as I have two I absolutely adore to bits and I simply can't pick a favourite. The first film is Hercules as it is one of the funniest Disney Classics in my opinion. As well as being hilarious, it's got an amazing soundtrack which I know ALL the words to (I'm not even joking) and the characters are on point. Megara is so sassy and fab, as is Hades, who is definitely one of my favourite Disney villains.
The second favourite is, of course, Pocahontas. This film is incredible, the soundtrack is flawless and the ending is so perfect. I think it's very refreshing to have a Disney film where the couple don't end up together and I actually love this film so much that I named my dog after the pug in it! As you can probably tell, I'm a MASSIVE Disney fan.

What is your favourite tea flavour?
I'm not very adventurous when it comes to tea as I'm sensitive to caffeine so don't drink it too often but when I do I stick to the standard English Breakfast. Boring, I know!

What book has left a lasting impression on you?
This is going to be a very obvious answer but I'm going to have to be cliché and say the Harry Potter series. These books really spoke to me when I had nothing else and without sounding too melodramatic, I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for JK Rowling. I love the books so much that my first tattoo I got was actually Harry Potter related.

Are you friends with someone you've never met in person before? 
Yes! I've met many people through the internet, with websites such as Tumblr, who I've never met in person. Two in particular, Danielle and Jacob, spring to mind. I started speaking to both of them five years ago when I first got Tumblr and still keep in touch with them through Facebook to this day.

If you could live a day in the life of someone famous, dead or alive, who would it be?
Again, I'm going to cheat on this question and give two answers as I really can't decide; the first answer being the amazing Walt Disney. Having his imagination, even just for a single day, would be the most magical experience and having access to everything Disney related would be a dream come true for me (excuse the puns).
The second of my choices would be the great Anna Wintour. Considering she has my dream job, I would love to spend a day in her life. Wearing the latest couture pieces, choosing what goes into one of the most influential magazines in the world and attending runway shows and the most elite parties would be heaven for me. She has so much power and influence on such a massive, global scale that I can't even imagine what it must be like to be her therefore I'd love to find out first-hand.

What is your favourite jewellery item to wear?
I definitely prefer wearing earrings to anything else although I have been loving piling on the rings recently, love a good midi ring!

What is your favourite song of all time?
My taste in music is so vast and varied, ranging from Arctic Monkeys to Beyonce, Kanye West to Kesha and of course I love a Disney soundtrack so it's hard for me to pick just one song! However, if I really had to choose, it would most probably be something by Eva Cassidy. Her voice is one of a kind and nobody will ever compare, she was a truly incredible artist and it's such a tragedy that she didn't get the credit she deserved whilst she was still alive. If I had to pick a specific song though, I would either go with Fever or Wade in the Water. If you've never listened to any of her stuff before, seriously go check her out. You can thank me later...

Who inspires you?
So many people! I get inspired by celebrities such as JK Rowling and Demi Lovato as they've both battled depression and come out the other side stronger which is what I'm constantly aiming towards. Demi Lovato is such an amazing role model, along with Kesha, as they've both been public about their problems and they're now both focused on being healthy and refuse to give into pressure from the media to look a certain way which is so refreshing and brave. They've helped me realise that I should focus on being healthy rather than wanting to weigh a certain amount. 
I also get inspired by fictional characters such as; Cher Horowitz, Carrie Bradshaw, Blair Waldolf and Electra Heart. They remind me to be sassy, fierce and not care what people think of me, especially when it comes to what I'm wearing. Another major fashion inspiration for me is Youtubers and Bloggers. My all time favourites are Sunbeams Jess and Jenn Im from Clothes Encounters. Their style is simply flawless and they always make me want to go on a massive shopping spree after watching their videos.
Lastly, how could I leave out the cliché answer of my family and friends. I would be nowhere without my sister and dog as they're a constant reminder for me to not give up and to try make them proud. My sister has sacrificed a lot for me over the years and has always been the person I've looked up to the most for as long as I can remember. 

What TV series do you wish still aired?
Definitely the easiest of these questions to answer, it has to be Veronica Mars! It breaks my heart that this show got cancelled after only three seasons but Veronica and Logan will always be my OTP. If you haven't seen it before, go watch it NOW.



If you got to the end of these questions, I applaud you. No seriously, I have no idea how this post ended up so long but I apologise and hope I haven't bored you too much. Now onto the 11 bloggers I've chosen to nominate and the questions they'll be answering.
