The Liebster Award

14 January 2014

So this was a total surprise! I hadn't expected to be nominated for an award of any kind when I started this blog, so thank you so much to Chelsea ( for nominating me!
The Liebster Award is awarded to new bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's basically meant to welcome new bloggers and promote them.
The rules are:
- Mention the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
- Create a new set of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

Here are my answers to Chelsea's questions.
1. How do you deal with stress?

This is an interesting one for me! Normally I deal with stress by ranting at people, but I do occasionally have Anxiety related stress issues, which involve more of a technique! Breathing exercises are good, as well as some muscle tensing/relaxing exercises.

2. What was one of your New Year's resolutions; if you didn't make any, why not?
I never tend to do new year's resolutions. Mainly because I'm lazy. I have goals, but I don't like to put added pressure on myself to achieve them.

3. Name your favorite piece of jewelry. Does it have any special meaning to you?
I have a ring that belonged to my great grandmother. It's platinum with diamonds and sapphires, I wore it on my wedding day. I have a lot of jewellery that's special to me, but that's probably my favourite.

4. Do you have a quote that resonates with you? Post it!
I really don't. How boring of me! I'm forever seeing these inspirational quotes on Pinterest, but I'm just not really into that.

5. What's your favorite genre of book to read?
I really like supernatural thrillers. And crime thrillers too actually. Anything with a mystery.

6. Your favorite type of pajamas?
Snuggly ones!

7. Lace or leather?

8. Handmade present or something name brand?

9. Must-have winter accessory?
I've gotten really into my wintery hats this year! Couldn't be without one now.

10. Music you recently listened to that you consider a "guilty pleasure?"
That's a tough one! My husband is always saying that my music taste is terrible, but I am totally proud of my love for Katy Perry. I've got quite a lot of the Glee soundtrack on my ipod and I guess that's pretty cheesy!

11. If your life was made into a TV show, who would play you?
Jennifer Lawrence, clearly.
Now, my nominees are:

I really struggled to find 11 people with less than 200 followers, so if I've contacted you and nominated you, and you actually have over 200 followers, sorry! Please ignore me haha.

Right, my 11 questions for you all are:

1. How did you get into blogging?
2. What's your favourite make up brand?
3. What was the last film you went to see at the cinema?
4. Are you a dog or a cat person?
5. Book or magazine?
6. Did you make any new year's resolutions? If so, what are they?
7. What's your favourite holiday destination?
8. Do you have any hobbys?
9. Do you have a favourite piece of jewellery? Does it have special meaning?
10. What's your favourite clothing brand?
11. Are you an early bird or a night owl?

Thanks very much for participating, and once again to Chelsea for nominating me!

  1. I have generalized anxiety, so I completely understand when it comes to muscle relaxing techniques and breathing exercises! I love to do yoga from time to time, when I can, but have found actually that knitting relaxes me and seems to clear my mind more than yoga does.

    And Jennifer Lawrence was the perfect answer. I would've picked her as well ;)

    Now I have to go check out your nominees. Have a good day!
