The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award


I can’t believe I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award after only 2 months of blogging, so of course, a very big thank you to Slightly Voguish for the nomination. The rules of the Liebster Award are as follows:

  • Thank the blogger that nominated you
  • Write 11 random facts about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions which were asked by the blogger that nominated you
  • Nominate 5-11 and let them know that you’ve nominated them
  • Finally, provide them with 11 questions to answer

Easy, right? Wrong! I’m frantically trying to gather 11 interesting facts about me… it’s very difficult.

11 Facts About Me

  10. The thing I like most about myself is my sense of humor.

My 11 Questions

Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn?

Audrey Hepburn. She was one of the only people to be an EGOT. She won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. She was a volunteer nurse in WWII, and a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. Not to mention, a fashion icon. She was also the person that said, ‘Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!’ Pretty amazing.

Are you a sweet or sour type of person?

Sweet. I love everything sweet. Easy.

Have you ever kept a diary or tried to?

I have never succeeded in keeping a diary. I did try a few times, but I’m simply not interesting enough to be able to keep one! I would bore myself. But, I have heard that it’s incredibly rewarding to read them back when you’re older so I might try again.

Favourite quote?

One that’s always made me smile is this quote from Einstein, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

Where is your ‘happy place’?

My happy place is at home. I could spend days alone at home. It’s where I’m most comfortable.

What are your favourite pizza toppings?

Pepperoni, chicken, peppers, onions… Extra cheese?

One beauty item you cannot live without?

Lip balm. It is a god among beauty products. I know a lot of people would probably say mascara, but I truly feel that chapped lips never look good, even if your eyelashes are poppin’.

A beauty item you would not recommend?

Rimmel eyeshadows. No pigment, just dust. Don’t do it.

Biggest Pet Peeve?

When people are rude. It costs nothing to have manners.

Food you hate the most?

I don’t know if it exists. Hm. Maybe salmon.

What is your biggest goal in life?

It sounds cliche but I would really like to do something with my life that made me happy. Try to live with no regrets.
