Liebster Award Q&A
Hello my lovely readers!
Can you believe it's February already!? The beginning of the year for me always goes so quickly and before you know it'll be Spring! (Secretly excited about that though!) After taking a few weeks away from all social media and my blog I'm happy to be back to start posting again, I'm looking forward to catching up on all the blog post's I've missed in my absence.
Yesterday afternoon I received the most wonderful news of being nominated for a Liebster Award from the ever so lovely duo Amanda & Katie. These two gals are seriously the sweetest ladies and I was so excited when they started their own blog. I've been following both of them on Instagram for a while and have a major gal crush on both of them! I've been nominated a few times before but for those who haven't heard of a Liebster Award its basically the person who receives it answers a set of questions from the previous blogger (whoever nominated you), and then creates the same number of questions to be answered by those they pass it along to. It's a great way to meet and get to know fellow bloggers and also for readers to get to know you by answering the questions set. Check out my first ever Liebster Award nomination here.
Here are my questions from Amanda & Katie -
1. What is your favourite non-fashion related hobby?
Hmm I'd have to say reading a good book that I could sit and read for hours. I've always been a keen book reader since a child, though I'm currently not reading anything at the moment. My next book purchase I would like to get is The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. My book collection is a mixture of everything though, from fashion related books to horror!
2. If you had a super power, what would it be?
Oh this is a tricky one...I'd say being able to vanish (Teleport) and appear somewhere else in the world that I'm thinking of. Lately all I've been thinking of is planning our next trip to visit my friends in Portland, Oregon.
3. What is your favourite place that you have ever visited?
My favourite place so far would be visiting California last year!! It was my first time to the States for a friends wedding in Palm Springs & our honeymoon in San Diego. I'm not a keen flyer and had to dose up on medication just to get me on the darn plane! It changed my outlook on life and we'd love to move to the States in the near future. Check out our honeymoon adventure here.
4. What is your favourite thing about yourself?
I'd have to say my favourite thing about myself is my small waist! I only wear dresses or full skirts so I like the fact they shape me well. I'm kinda short so having the illusion of curves makes me feel more like a lady!
5. Do you have any pets? If yes, what are they?
Yes I do! I have a sweet but stubborn little 3 year old lady kitty called Sookie. If you follow me on Instagram you'll see how much I'm a crazy cat lady and how weird Sookie is! (Yes she's called after Sookie Stackhouse from True Blood ;) )
6. What is your favourite makeup product?
I'd have to say my Rimmel Liquid Eyeliner in jet black that I use everyday. Its been my go-to eyeliner since I was 15 years old and I can't seem to stray away from it. It's almost like my comfort zone and I feel lost without it!
7. Do you have a hidden talent? What is it?
Is baking cakes a hidden talent? I don't really know if I have any "real" talent Haha!
8. What is your favourite piece of clothing?
My favourite piece of clothing would be my first Polka Dots & Petticoats peach floral fifties dress that I got from my Mama for Christmas. It fit's perfectly and pulls in my tiny waist that I want one in every colour/pattern possible!
9. If you could go back in time and attend a party (think Cinderella), whose party would it be?
This really is a tricky question and it's took me nearly 30 minutes to think of one! I'd love to attend the Met Ball and be able to mingle with all the fashion designers and style icons! Plus I'd get to wear a pretty vintage dress!
10. If you could erase one fashion faux-pas from your teenage years, what would it be?
Oh my goodness I'll have to say my 'emo' stage through my teens where I wore skinny jeans with my studded belt every single day, complete with a fitted hardcore band t-shirt! My jet black hair had to cover my left eye and be back brushed until my hair fell out! Worst hair fashion faux-pas ever!!
11. Favourite book or author?
My all-time favourite author would be Stephen King! The Shining is an awesome both book & film!
