Liebster Award

Hello everybody!

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by two fellow bloggers over at Chai and Chapsticks and A Muslimah's Little Blog. Thank you Ladies!

"Liebster" is a German word meaning "sweetheart", "darling" or "beloved". It means "boyfriend" too haha but let's not go there. This award is a nice little gesture whereby bloggers nominate other bloggers in the blogger realm (mouthful!) to welcome them and give them some recognition. 

The official Liebster Award rules differ from the ones going around today and I've seen a few sets of rules floating about. Yes, I've been a good girl and done my research! I'm going to stick to the ones that my girls sent me.

  • Post the award on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who awarded you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  • Answer the 11 questions that were asked by the blogger who presented you with the award.
  • Ask 11 questions from those you nominate.

Right, so let's get started!

11 Random Facts about me
  1. I had grey eyes when I was born and now they are brown.
  2. I have two cats - Tom and Jerry. And yes, I know Jerry was a mouse in the cartoons!
  3. I don't have a favourite colour.
  4. I am currently obsessed with Lipsticks.
  5. I am always up early in the morning, even if I have had little to no sleep. I just feel anxious that I might miss out on something if I'm asleep! Crazy girl.
  6. I am engaged.
  7. I am the middle child.
  8. I speak 5 languages. A few more fluently than others!
  9. I obsess over things being neat and tidy and visually appealing.
  10. My hearing and sense of smell are very strong.
  11. I love animals.
That was tough!

Now on to the Questions by Chai and Chapsticks.

  1. Do you follow make up trends? Depends if they are wearable. I don't necessarily follow them. I do experiment though in the comfort of my own home.
  2. Favourite thing about blogging? Being creative and expressing myself.
  3. What made you start blogging? I contemplated it for a while and then just bit the bullet. I'm glad I did :-)
  4. Can you leave the house with out make up? I do most of the time haha!
  5. Any phobias? I wouldn't call it a phobia but I get a little overwhelmed if I'm surrounded by water. No I'm not talking about a bath haha! I mean like water on a mega huge scale like the sea or a giant waterfall.
  6. Favourite TV show(s)? I'm not a TV person but I like talent shows or reality tv shows. I recently watched Orange is the New Black, which was really good.
  7. Would you rather have more followers that are in active or less followers that are more active? Less and active.
