The Liebster Awards

After not looking at my blog for a couple of days I came to see that the lovely Jess from What Jess Does Next had nominated me for the Liebster Award which was created for new bloggers to get to know each other and read other blogs. 

The rules are as follows:- 

1. Post the award on your blog  2. Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog  

3. Write 11 random facts about yourself  4. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask 11 for you nominees to answer  5. Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 1000 followers  6. Let the nominees know you have nominated them

11 random facts about me...

1. I'm addicted to chocolate
2. I'm massively scared of spiders, if I see one I run away screaming (and yes I've been known to cry too)
3. I know too many words to the film Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging
4. Buying makeup makes me happy
5. The first concert I went to was Atomic Kitten, the most recent was Taylor Swift
6. As much as I love uni, I can't wait to finish, I'm fed up of exams!
7. I can't decide if I love summer or Christmas more, the build up to Christmas is the best but I love hot weather, however I would never want to combine them both
8. I've never had a pet and I don't have any brothers or sisters either
9. London is my favourite city but I don't think I could live there, it's just too busy (and expensive)
10. I hate not having my nails painted
11. I used to work on a deli counter so I know a lot about cheese!

Questions from Jess...

1. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
I love it when people comment on my posts, all the comments just make me happy and it's nice to know what I'm writing is being read and is sometimes useful to people.

2. What was your first foray into makeup?
I can't actually remember, I think it was one of the basics like mascara or a concealer.

3. Which F.R.I.E.N.D.S character are you?
I don't actually like Friends so I can't really answer this one (please don't give me hate!)

4. If you were travelling on a budget would you prefer camping or hostels?

I used to go camping all the time with my parents, we once went to Ireland camping and it rained everyday, that has put me off camping (I have nothing against Ireland, just the two weeks we went it rained everyday but one so the holiday wasn't the best I've been on) so it would have to be a hostel, that way if it does rain you can dry off and have a nice shower! 

5. Have a look at your iPod and check out what your most played song is, and explain why you love it.

Dancin' Away with my Heart by Lady Antebellum, I love this song, I went to see them live and I think I nearly cried when they played this, there's just something about this song that I can relate to and has meaning to me.

6. Who is your most loved blogger?
I love Vivianna Does Makeup  and Lily Pebbles, I find their posts to be really interesting and I love their videos too.

7. Are you more of a city person or a country person?

I love the city, London is one of my favourite places to be but I couldn't live there, I do find it boring in the country though, I love the hustle and bustle of city life.

8. Name your favourite movie or TV show. 

This is a really tricky one for me, I think my favourite movies are the Harry Potter series and probably Desperate Housewives is my favourite TV show

9. Of all the food you can buy at the cinemas, what is the one you go for the most?

I tend to buy my food before I go in because it's so expensive but I do love the popcorn too.

10. Do you think that uggboots are acceptable to wear in public?

For women yes, never for men but I hate it when people wear them and they're walking on the side of the shoe. 

11. Which season is your favourite and what country would you like to experience it in the most? 

I love summer because it's so warm and sunny and it just cheers me up, I would like to experience it in Australia, mainly just because I've never been there. However I love winter when it's Christmas.

My questions for the nominees...

1. What was the first concert you went to?
2. Favourite food?
3. What made you start blogging?
4. Reading a book or watching a film?

Thanks for nominating me Jess, I've really enjoyed doing this. Thanks for reading!

Ta ta for now!


  1. Congrats on the award and thanx for nominating me..i will try to do the post ASAP :)

    1. It's such a good way for bloggers to get to know people :)

    2. i totally agree...i have a question though, does it have to be less than 1000 subs all together or just on GFC??

    3. I'm not actually sure, I just chose blogs that didn't have loads of followers, I think it's just a guideline :)

  2. Congratulations on the award, Emma. I agree, the Liebster is such a good way for bloggers to interact with new bloggers. Your fact about your first concert made me laugh. I don't know why, my first was The Saturdays and I am embarrassed. I've seen Taylor Swift too, when she was doing her country thing before this whole pop vibe. I've actually already done a Liebster before so I'm in two minds as to whether or not I do this, but if I do I will let you know. Rosemary x

    1. I've seen the Saturdays, I quite like them, I've seen Taylor Swift twice, I think she's good whatever music she does. Sorry I wasn't sure who had done it, I'm sure loads of people have. Thanks for reading!

  3. Thanks for tagging me, I've done this award before I like doing tag posts I'm with you there men in ugg boots is just a crime! It's just so wrong haha. x

    1. Sorry, I wasn't sure who had done it. Men in uggs just look silly! Thanks for reading! X

  4. Thank you! I have just posted my questions on my blog, I think it's such a good idea so thanks again! xx
