LIFESTYLE | The Liebster Award


I honestly cannot believe that I've been nominated for The Liebster Award by the incredibly lovely Victoria from Forever Exceptional ; this nomination has given me such a boost when it comes to blogging because, I have to admit, I was suffering from a very serious case of writers' block! But thanks to her, here I am now writing a very special and meaningful post to me - so if you're reading this Victoria, I couldn't thank you enough! 

So in a little summary, The Liebster Award is given to bloggers by other bloggers as they share the same interest in helping other blogs to be recognised and/or welcome new bloggers to the internety world!

The rules for The Liebster Award are as follows:

1. You must list eleven facts about yourself
2. Answer the eleven questions given to you by the blogger who has nominated you
3. Write eleven new questions
4. Nominate eleven other bloggers, of whom have under 200 followers, to answer your questions
5. Remember to let the bloggers know that you have nominated them

So, here goes...

*************

Eleven facts about me:
1. I have two middle names: Roberta and India
2. I'm a Gemini (my birthday is the 16th of June)

4. I suffer from a severe mental disorder called Narcolepsy Cataplexy Syndrome; of which affects my sleep pattern and the muscles in my body

6. My favourite Marvel superhero is Captain America
7. In the future I would love to pursue a career in either Biology or the Arts
8. I have seen Tom Hiddleston, Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy and Steven Moffat all live on stage (sadly not all at the same time though!)
9. Some of my favourite TV shows include: Teen Wolf, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, NCIS, Ugly Betty and (erm) Coach Trip
10. I will forever be your friend if you buy me an insanely awesome plushie, or a high end branded lipstick

Eleven Answers:
1. Twitter or Facebook? My blog has both! Click HERE  for the Facebook link, and HERE  for the Twitter link!
2. Who is your style icon? If you follow me on Tumblr you'll know that I love to post pictures of Alexa Chung; so I reckon she is my biggest style icon. I'm also a big fan of Olivia Palermo though too.
3. What is your favourite makeup product? Lipstick; simple as!
4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? This is a toughie as I've never left England in my life, but I would probably say New York as I love the city atmosphere, and everything seems to happen there which really excites me; not to mention the incredible range of shops there are!
5. What type of music do you listen to? I a big fan of alternative things, in fact most of my favourite bands aren't very well know. But in general I love a bit of everything really!
6. What is your favourite clothing item? I am a massive fan of baggy t-shirts as they can be dressed down or up in so many different and inventive ways; I own so many it's crazy!
7. If you could trade places with a celebrity for a day, who would it be? I'm not too sure, but I would say Chloe Grace Moretz as, judging by her Instagram, she gets to do so many cool things and gets lots of stunning free things too! (Not that I'm jealous or anything...)
8. If you could be an animal, which one would you be and why? I'm not a big animal person, but I would be a snake because they're really lazy most of the time and they're very pretty - even though I hate them!
9. Summer or Winter? Summer! Bright, bold, colourful, and full of ice cream!
10. If you could time travel, what piece of advice would you give to your younger self? I would probably say: Ditch people who don't act like a proper friend should as soon as they're terrible to you, as you know some much nicer people who take you for who you are and don't discriminate against you.
11. Have you overcome any fears? I guess I can remove spiders from my room now without screaming.

Eleven New Questions:
1. What do you prefer: Reading a book or watching a film?
