The Liebster Blog Award

I'm so excited! Shurooq Mohamed from ENCHANTED MIRROR OF DESIRE has nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award! First of all a huge thank you to Shurooq it means so much to me, and if you haven't already please check out her blog. Its so wonderfully written and enlightening :)

The Liebster Blog Award is an internet based blogging award given from one blogger to another. In affect its a fun blogging chain letter that allows us all to feel the love and spread the love. There are a few simple rules to follow to qualify for the award and as silly as it seems I see my Liebster Blog Award as a huge milestone achieved in my blogging life!

The Rules

1~ Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog.

2~ Display the award on your blog by including it in your post and/or displaying it as a 'widget' or 'gadget' Simply right click the image and save then upload it in your post and/or 'add gadget' then select the picture category.

3~ Answer 11 questions about yourself which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.

4~ Provide 11 random facts about yourself.

5~ Nominate 5-11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, and who have less than 1000 followers.

6~ Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.

7~ List these rules in your post (copy and paste) 

8~ Once you've written and published your post, inform the people/blogs that you have nominated them for the Liebster Blog Award and provide a link to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not of heard of it before).

The Questions

1~ Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog as a way to share my thoughts and opinions about products that I'm loving or hating and to share tips, tricks and hairstyles.

2~ Where was your last best vacation?
I think the last time I went to the New Forest with my boyfriend. The weather was lovely and I just love it down there!

3~ Tea or Coffee?
Defiantly Tea :)

4~ If you could meet some one dead or alive who would it be?
This is such a hard question! I've never truly really wanted to meet anyone in particular. But maybe the Queen? Have tea and cake!

5~ Your favourite place to eat out?
I do enjoy going to ZiZi's I love their pizza's and the Silver Birch tress sprouting out the floor!

6~ What is your best childhood memory?
I think Christmases around my Nan and Grandad's playing the Mars Bar Game! 

7~ If any character form a novel could be your best friend, who would you want it to be and why? 
I think Yelena Zaltana from the Chronicles of Ixia novels. She's tough and caring and has magical abilities, so her or maybe Daenerys Targaryen because she is the mother of Dragons, and I love dragons :)

8~ What makes you smile?
Well my boyfriend for one, but Kestrels. Whenever I see them perched on a telephone pole or hovering I can't help but smile!

9~ Do you like the way you are?
Some times! I'm I total Gemini, I defiantly have 2 sides to me. I'm really laid back but I can flip and become super stressy!
