Liebster Award: Get to know me better

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award, so how fun that you all get to find out a little bit more about me, yaaaaay!
So I've been nominated by 3 people in the last week or so! So I figured I'd better get on it... 

I had absolutely no idea what the Liebster Award was, but turns out it's a away of getting to know smaller bloggers, for us to find each other and spread the love and whatnot.

Thank you very much to Sian from Sian Blogs, Kaitlin from Kaitlin Louise and Mel from Melberry for my nominations! Seeing as I've been nominated 3 times, I have 3 sets of 11 questions, so I won't answer all 33, I'll take some questions from everyone and mix them all up, some were very similar anyway so I've merged some together.

1. What is your favourite food?
First question, my favourite subject. This is HARD! I love food.. I think my favourite dinner would be a Roast Dinner, because it has everything! Otherwise it would have to be cake, chocolate cake, vanilla cake, banana cake, coffee cake, carrot cake, big cakes, little cakes, everywhere a cake cake. 

2. How long have you been blogging?
I've been blogging around 18 months, but I'd say the last 3/4 months I've been making a real effort with it, and post much more considered content regularly.

3. If money was not an issue, what is the one thing you would LOVE to do?
I don't know why but I'd just looove to be a florist, or a cake decorator, or have a wedding dress shop, or maybe all three? 
I'd also wish I could do the whole travelling the world thing but that ain't gonna happen any time soon.

4. What are you most scared of?
I used to be really scared of the sea because of a horrific incident with a smack of jelly fish (I just googled what you call a group of jelly fish apparently it's a smack who knew..) and a panic attack in the middle of the ocean.... but I joined my universities surf club so i'm kind of over it now, at least when i'm in a wetsuit. Otherwise i'm not scared of much, I get nervous about things but I wouldn't say I fear doing anything now. 

5. Do your family and friends know you're a blogger?
Most of them do, my close friends all do and I think they like to have a nose now and then. My close family know also but i'm not sure they really get it haha.

6. How did your blog come to be?
So it was a few months after I graduated, I'd had an amazing summer and moved back home with my parents and I was looking for a job in London. I was feeling a bit down, missing my independence and focusing my brain on something I enjoyed doing so one weekend I just made one and that was that! Best decision ever, I love how it's developed and is continuing to develop over time and I'm pretty proud of myself for doing it. Once upon a time i'd have been too worried what people would think of me for doing it but I just went for it and i'm glad i did. 

7. If you could travel anywhere, where?
I'd absolutely looooove to go to New Zealand and Australia, and South America, and Space. I'd friggin love to go to the moon and just sit and watch the world, the northern lights, the stars, the sunrise - imagine....

8. What are you most looking forward to this year?
MY HOLIDAAAAAAY. I'm so excited, it's my first proper summer holiday abroad in over a year and i'm excited not to be ghosty anymore, it's also mine and my boyfriends first holiday away together without anyone else so it should be lovely. We're going to Hvar and Split in Croatia.

9. What’s your favourite quote
‘I’m going to make everything around me beautiful and that will be my life’ – Elsie de Wolfe
I actually didn’t really have a favourite so I just had a look around for some and I’ve decided I like this one and that’s one to live by. I have an influence over what happens in my life, physically or not, I can make my home beautiful, if I’m nice to people that is beautiful, everything

10. You're trapped on a desert island. You're allowed three things. What are they?
Wow this is hard.. probably an unlimited bottle of Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate cause skin is gonna get drrrrry. Then I guess I should have practical things.. like a fishing line and a pen knife thing that has all the different bits and knives and scissors and screwdrivers and what not.

11. What is your favourite thing to drink?
I can’t pick one… I love a good cappuncino, I love a sparkling elderflower type drinky thing, and I find nothing more satisfying than a big glass of cold water. On a night out though I’ll enjoy a nice Gin and Tonic or a good cocktail – an espresso martini is my fave.

Now for my nominations! I nominate:

  1. Thank you for taking the time to answer some of my questions :-) Space is such a brilliant answer - I totally did not think of that at all! I agree the views would be phenomenal. I would have to make sure I packed a ton of SD cards for my camera. That quote is so, so lovely too - I will definitely be remembering that one. And I hope you and your boyfriend have a wonderful time in Croatia!

    1. No worries!! Thanks for the nomination.

      Yes! plenty of memory and some spare batteries!! Thanks Sian :)

  2. Great answers! I'm quite scared of the ocean too, although I conquered it last year when I swam with dolphins. It's still terrifying!

  5. I am also scared of the ocean, as I dont know whats in there and there is the fear of drowning. thats a lovely quote too. and thanks for the nomination :)


    1. It's that fear of the unknown isn't it! If I was in a bubble in the ocean and I could see everything around me that'd be okay haha.

      You're welcome!
