What is the Liebster Award?
The Liebster Award recognises new and upcoming blogs that have less than 200 followers.

The Rules
1) Each person must list 11 things about themselves. 2) Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you PLUS you MUST create 11 questions of your own for the 11 people you will nominate with this award. 3) Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post. 4) Go to their page and inform them of the nomination. 5) Absolutely NO tags back. Remember to ONLY tag bloggers with less than 200 followers.

In the space of two days I've been nominated 3 times for the Liebster Award! This is such a compliment so thank you Emily, Alana and Laura! Unfortunately this post would get extremely long and boring if I answered all your questions so I'm just going to answer Laura's as she was first to nominate :)

11 Things About Me

1) I love Christmas
2) I have a sister who's 16 years older than me (beat that Laura!)
3) I spend way too much time online
4) I wish I could speak another language
5) I have no idea what I want to do in life 
6) Gardening is my guilty pleasure, I like the feeling of accomplishment when I've grown something
7) I live in Devon, the best county in England!
8) I'm quite thrifty but some would say I'm tight!
9) My family is really small, there aren't many of us :(
10) I spend ages entering competitions online
11) I am 21 again this year ;)

Laura's 11 Questions

1) Why did you start blogging?
I love reading blogs and have spare time so thought I'd just go for it!

2) Who's your celebrity crush?

I actually don't have one.. sorry to be boring.

3) If someone was going to make a film of your life, what actress would play you?

Emma Roberts or Leighton Meester.

4) Favourite make up brand?
How can you choose one?! Seems like I use a different one for everything. 

5) Favourite food?
Do sweets and chocolate count? I have such a sweet tooth and could live on dark choc digestives.

6) What's your signature style?
I don't think it has a name. I wear whatever takes my fancy, normally shorts in summer and tights, boots and dresses in winter. I'll only ever wear something if it's comfy.

7) Favourite memory?
The summer I finished sixth form. It was spent going to the beach, moors, swimming and BBQing and it never seemed to rain that year. After that everyone has gone their own ways and I've lost touch with quite a few people.

8) What's your dream holiday destination?

I've always wanted to go to America and maybe do route 66.

9) If you got stranded on a desert island, what 3 things would you take with you?
My dog, an axe, Bear Grylls. 

10) If you could be any animal what would it be?

A bird. They can travel quickly, see everything, and as an added bonus I could shit on people I didn't like!

11) Who's your favourite fictional character?
There're too many. Spike from Notting Hill and Smithy from Gavin and Stacey are two of my faves, and of course Bridget Jones. Funnily enough I seem to prefer TV and film characters rather than those in books.

That's me done. I'm nominating the following lovely people to recieve the award:
Katie from Beauty and the Bitch
Emily from Emily Likes Make Up
Zoe from zoeliannex

Questions for them:

1) What's your dream job?
2) Do you have any guilty pleasures?
3) If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
4) What's the best present you've ever been given?
5) How old is your blog?
6) What's your favourite shop?
7) Do you have any pets?
8) What was the last thing you bought?
9) Favourite time of year and why?
10) Where would you like to go on your next holiday?
11) Name three things you couldn't live without.

Phew, that was a long post!

I like finding new blogs so feel free to leave your address, but please note that I don't 'follow for a follow' as I feel there's no point in this. I follow blogs because I like them, not because I feel obliged to do so. Rant over, happy blogging!
