The Liebster Award is a way to help new bloggers discover others in the blogging community- particularly those of us with less than 200 followers- by passing on questions and links to other bloggers you feel should be part of the action.
You must link back to the person that nominated you.
You must answer the 11 questions given by the nominee before you.
You pick nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
You can not nominate the person who nominated you.
You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.
I have been kindly nominated by lookinglovelyyy , and her questions for me are... (for my blog virgins, click on that name and you can see her blog)
1.What is your favourite magazine?
I don't tend to buy them anymore, as I never get round to reading them. But I used to love more, because the featured products are actually affordable, high street items. I don't see the point pouring over designer items when I know they are beyond my means.
2. Does anyone know you blog?
This is a good question. I planned on keeping it secret from friends and family until it was a bit more established. However, I tell my family pretty much everything so I only kept the secret for 2 days! My friends, family and boyfriend ALL know, and they are SO supportive. As I was unlocking my front door the other day I heard "LOVING YOUR BLOG KATY, KEEP GOING!" and turned around to see my friend Becci at the other side of the road, hollering! Thanks Becs.
3. What do you most like to read on other peoples blogs?
I prefer make-up tutorials/tips to product reviews, and I love a blog where you feel you're getting to know the blogger. Its so much easier to believe in what someone is saying when you know a bit about them. I love a good dose of sarcasm too. My blogging idol is Ebony at ELN Fashion, check her out and you'll see why.
4. What do you like to watch on telly?
I love to get stuck into a big series! My boyfriend and I are waiting for Hannibal and The Walking Dead to restart, and we can' t wait. I'll admit that I love a bit of X Factor and Big Brother too though, I'm no TV snob.
5. Do you support any sports team?
Hmmm... I guess I have a vested interest in Manchester United. My boyfriend is fanatical, therefore it is much better for me if they win, because then my day will be brighter!
6. How often do you blog?
I don't have a plan or structure. I want my blog to just happen rather than being forced because then it'd just become another chore. If I'm feeling interesting then I'll blog, if I'm feeling lazy then I won't. Easy as that.
7. What is the proudest moment of your life so far?
Oh goodness, is it bad that I'm having to think so hard? I was proud to get into Uni- hilarious because it turned out to be a nightmare. Gahhh, I don't know! I've told you before about my memory... Haven't I?
8. Do you have any pets?
Nope. I'm a massive fairy and scared of most animals up close, particularly cats. They're too unpredictable for my anxious self. I also think they just don't care about you, which isn't a good trait in a pet. I'd like a dog when we have kids, cause it's cute for them to grow up together. (What a sap)
9. If you could change one thing about your self what would it be?
I'd be more care-free. A go-with-the-flow kind of girl, rather than a negative Nancy.
10. Favourite make up brand?
I'm such a disloyal customer. I buy whatever I can afford at the time. Make-Up for me isn't about having the best money can buy, its just about feeling better about myself and being creative, so while I can do that on a shoestring I will!
11. Do you prefer a bath or shower?
Shower!! A bath is an effort. Running it, being too hot, getting bored and then having to wash the bloody leg hairs out. No thanks...
There we have it.
Now for my nominees...
And their questions
1. Why did you start blogging?
2. Do any of your Real Life friends read your blog?
3. Night in or night out?
4. Where was your best ever holiday?
5. Do you know any other bloggers in Real Life?
6. Sunday dinner or spicy curry?
7. Do you wear make-up everyday?
8. What 3 items would you take to a desert island?
9. Are you glass half full or half empty kind of girl?
10. Biggest achievement?
11. What word so you say the most?
So that's my Liebster Award post done. Hope you enjoyed it. I can't wait to read my lovely nominees posts!
