- Liebster Blog Award Nomination

Thank you very much to Claudia from the blog Crafts and Spices for the nomination! The Liebster Blog Award is created for smaller bloggers. Liebster is a German words that means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved. There are several different versions of this floating around the web, but I'm just carrying on the version I was tagged in. It's just a bit of fun and is a great way to discover new blogs!

The Rules:

- Post 11 random facts about yourself.
- Answer 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you
- Nominate 11 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to do the same.
- Let the bloggers you have nominated know they have been nominated.

11 Facts About Me:

1. My favourite animal are hedgehogs
2. I have no idea what career I want
3. I want a tattoo but I'm too scared to get one
4. My favourite band is McFly
5. I have never had a nose bleed
6. People watching is my favourite thing
7. I have never been to Nando's
8. I am not a morning person. At all.
9. My favourite Ben & Jerry's flavour is Phish Food
10. My first job was in McDonalds and I started there when I was 16
11. My current favourite programme is The Job Lot

Answer's to Claudia's Questions:

1. Coffee or tea?
Neither! The only hot drink I like is hot chocolate.

2. What is your favourite colour?
Purple or blue

3. If you could move to a different country for one year, where would that be?
Probably England! Quite a boring answer considering I could go anywhere in the world and I'm picking my next door neighbour but I wouldn't like to move too far from Scotland I don't think and I actually really like Britain!

4. Favourite season?
Autumn (but Winter is a close second because I love Christmas).

5. What's your dream holiday destination?
Probably somewhere in Italy.

6. What do you love most about blogging?
I really like that you can follow people from all over the world and see a little part of their lives. It's interesting to compare their style and thoughts to your own. I also really enjoy blog design and taking pictures. I'm not great at either of these but hopefully I'm getting better with practice!

7. What's the last book you read?
To be honest,I don't read very often. The last novel I read was probably The Fault in Our Stars (the same as every other girl I know). Last month I started uni so I'm sure I'll be doing a lot more reading very soon!

8. What do you do to relax?
Change into my pyjamas, watch YouTube videos or tv (and eat a load of unhealthy snacks probably). Sometimes I'll have a bath if I'm in the mood for one.

9. Name one thing you can't live without.
My family. Awww so cute! (to be honest it was a tough call between family and internet and family only just won).

10. What's your favourite food?
Pizza pizza pizza. Easiest question ever.

11. What's your favourite blog?
I don't have one favourite I like loads of different ones for different reasons.
