2015 Liebster Award!

2015 Liebster Award - questions and nominations

I have recently been seeing blog posts on the 2015 Liebster Award circulating around for a while now, but never would I have thought I'd actually be taking part myself. I want to say a very special thank you to Darrian from Oh Shift, Y'all for nominating me, I can't explain how excited I am to write this post! Its been a while since I have been nominated but I wanted to share with you my Paris photos before writing this post so everything is up to date.

For those of you who don't know, the whole point is to connect small bloggers with under 200 followers to get the praise they deserve for all the hard work they put into their blog. I think it is such a great idea to show the appreciation towards these bloggers who put as much effort into their blog, if not more, than those with thousands of followers. Today I am ready to get back into my usual scheduling routine and to kick start this off, I  would like to share my answers with you all. , and here are my answers for you all.

The Questions

1. Why did you start your blog?
I had been watching youtube videos and reading online blogs for a while before I decided to make my own. I was far too shy and self-conscious to start making youtube content so instead I decided to write down everything I wanted to share instead. I love learning, trying out new things and just gaining an insight into peoples' lives. I thought blogging would be a perfect outlet to do this, and so the story of my online presence began.

2. What is your favorite blog post that you’ve published so far?
Ooh I'm not to sure about this one! It is constantly changing but I have to say that I love posting my travel photos such as the London and Paris ones I've done recently. I also tend to like the ones that I see more comments on because it just makes me happy to know that people like my post enough to make a lovely comment on it. Quite a few people interacted with my Birthday Wishlist which was nice for me to see because I had a lot of fun creating it.

3. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I go through phases quite often so this is a hard one as it just depends on my mood. I could literally live on fruit, particularly Mangoes! I also love pasta with vegetables in it, so if I had to choose an actual meal, it would probably be that one.

4. What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Whenever something went wrong, my mum always used to tell me, 'its done now, leave it in the past and focus on the future.' Just remembering this helps me not to dwell on the things gone wrong but instead think about the happy times yet to come.

5. What is your guilty pleasure?
Eating a whole tub of Haagen-Dazs whilst watching something rubbish on TV like Keeping up with the Kardashians!

6. What’s one social media trend that you absolutely just don’t understand?
I guess I find it kind of annoying when someone Instagrams every single part of their day - from their morning bed hair to random photos of their daily Starbuck's coffee, I just can't seem to understand the need to share these ordinary situations - anyone else feel that way?

7. What is your favourite quote and why?
I have been a fan of Roald Dahl and one quote that always stood out to me when reading ne of my favourite books of his, The Twits, was this: 
"A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” - This just motivates me to always have positive thoughts which will then in turn reflect on the outside and hopefully inspire others to do the same. 

8. Where do you see yourself in the next year?
Hopefully just finishing off an internship and being completely prepared for my last year at Uni (I can dream can't I?!)

9. What is your weirdest quirk?
Um, I'm not sure if it counts as a weird quirk but I gain such pleasure from tidying and organising all of my belongings. Some people dread to sort out their room, I relish the opportunity to!

10. What is the last book you read?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and it was brilliant! The writing was mesmerising, especially as it was in the viewpoint of Death. I literally could not put it down.

11. What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Raspberry Ripple - I love both vanilla and fruit flavours so this kind of has the best of both worlds!
