Liebster Award


I have finally got round to completing my Liebster Award nominations. I've been nominated by 3 different people now, The Floral Bandit, It's Only About Nails and Claire With The Camera, so I thought I'd better get on with it! Thanks for the nominations!

The aim of the Liebster Award is to discover and promote new blogs and find out more about fellow bloggers. Because the award is supposed to spread the word about new and upcoming blogs, you can only participate if you have less than 200 followers.

I'm not too sure on the exact rules, but the ones I come across most often are:

- Give 11 random facts about yourself,

- Answer the 11 questions asked by the person that nominated you,
- Choose 11 other bloggers that have less than 200 Bloglovin' followers,
- Ask them 11 questions,
- Let them know they have been nominated.

I'm not too sure on the 11 facts bit, but I have decided to include them anyway. And as I have had 3 nominations I have decided to take a pick from each person's set of questions, otherwise it would take me forever to answer them all!

I hope you enjoy it :)

11 Facts About Me:

1) I am a Chemistry Masters student and will graduate in 2015,

2) I would much rather be working with animals than doing chemistry,
3) I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters (I'm the oldest),
4) I have a dog, 4 rabbits, a tortoise and many fish, although I would do anything to have more animals!
5) Along side university, I work part time in a shoe shop (for the past 4 and a half years!) and in a hotel,
6) I have a professional qualification in modern dance,
7) I have 187 nail polishes to date, which isn't actually that many compared to a lot of nail bloggers, although my friends and family would disagree,
8) I LOVE Lady Gaga and Beyoncé,
9) I really hate buses, everything about them annoys me, like that 'hiss' sound they make when they've stopped. I just get so angry every time I see one!
10) I have touched Michael Bublé. It was quite an ordeal, and I'm pretty sure his security guard tried to snap my wrist. But I can't blame him, I probably looked like an absolute lunatic!
11) I'm quite small, 5 ft 3 and a half. I still remember being called 'stumpy legs' by my two tall friends Lauren and Emma in school. So mean...


1. What's the one beauty product you couldn't live without?

It has to be my under eye concealer, I have the worst dark circles under my eyes! I still haven't found one I am happy with yet though :( 

2. What's your all time favourite nail varnish?
Models Own Bubblegum! I love it so much and I'm very protective of it!

3. What's the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Well there's stuff like 'pay off parents mortgage', 'buy nice things for family and friends' and 'give some to charities'. But they're all a bit boring, so putting them aside, I would start my own doggy day care business and cosmetics company :D

4. What made you want to start a blog?
I was getting compliments about my nails and one day I thought 'they are pretty good aren't they?' although looking back now when I first started I was a bit messy and rubbish! But yeah I just suddenly thought I would make a blog to keep all my designs together and to share with everyone.

5. If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Probably invisibility. I know this sound a bit sad and depressing, but sometimes I just want to be unseen and do things and go places without anyone seeing me. I would also like super healing powers so I could heal people.

6. Do you have any guilty pleasures?
I love playing The Sims. I even have an extra laptop that is only used for playing it!

7. Are you a pudding/desert girl, or do you prefer savoury foods?
DESERT!!! I love sweet things and eat far too much of them.

8. What do you want to be when you "grow up"?
I have a few different possibilities, the dream is to start my own cosmetics company with my friend, or a doggy day-care! However, in reality, either a 'green' chemist, cosmetic chemist or an A-level chemistry teacher.

9. What’s your blogging set up like?  On the sofa, desk, special nail painting room?

Oh I really wish I could say a nail room, but I'm usually sat at my desk or in bed. Although one day I'm sure my boyfriend will give in and let me turn the loft into a nail room!

10. What makes you laugh?

I know it's really immature, and I really wish I didn't find it so funny, but it's when people fall over or trip. I even laugh about it days later because the event keeps replaying in my head. I sometimes even watch YouTube videos of people falling over because I find it that funny. I probably sound really cruel now haha. Obviously it's not funny when I fall over though, nobody is allowed to laugh then... 

11. Which series in television is your favourite?

I don't really watch TV, but some series I have enjoyed are Prisoners Wives and My Mad Fat Diary.

I nominate:

Rachael - Curlers and Coffee
Emma and Jo - Dahlia Nails
Zala - Polish Your Day
Lucy - Lucy Loves
Jayna - The Sequined Nail
Rachel - The Imperfect 10
Aimée - Pinkglow's Pretty Polish
Madison - Fundamentally Flawless
Sarah - Nails by Waggie
Sara - Sara M Louise
Sarah - My Mint Nails

Sorry if you've already done it, I tried to check everyone's blogs beforehand but I might have missed it!

These are my questions for you:
  1. What is your dream job?
  2. If you had superpowers for the day (invisibility, can fly etc) and could get away with anything, what would you do?
  3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
  4. If you could spend the day with any celebrity or famous person, who would it be and what would you do?
  5. If you had to live off only 3 foods for the rest of your life what would they be?
  6. If you could star in any film, which would it be?
  7. Do you have any fears?
  8. What is something you're really looking forward to over the next few months?
  9. What are your hobbies?
  10. What is your favourite thing about yourself?
  11. If you had three wishes, what would they be?

I hope you enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about me :)
