Liebster Awards

Firstly, I can't quite believe that someone liked my blog so much that they actually nominated me for a Liebster award. I didn't really know if anyone would even read my blog let alone think it was worthy of more followers. So, I am absolutely chuffed and would like to thank Elinor from so much for reading my blog and for nominating me. Please go check out her blog. It's really interesting and she makes awesome jewellery (checkout her giveaway!).

The Liebster awards are basically a way of recognising blogs with awesome content which have under 200 followers. Those who are nominated are asked to link the person who nominated them, answer the 10 questions asked by the person who nominated them, pick 10 bloggers to nominate (& provide their links) and ask their nominees 10 questions. Let your nominees know you have nominated them via their blog or twitter etc. 

I think this is such a great way to find ace new blogs to read!

The bloggers that I am nominating are as follows. I really like reading all of their beauty and fashion posts. I don't understand why they don't have more followers because their blogs have such great content. They are all definitely worth reading and following.

Here are the questions that Elinor asked me. My answers can be found under each question.

Cat, Dog or Other Pet?
Definitely Cat. I have had cats around my house for my entire life. I am most definitely a cat person rather than a dog person just because I am more familiar with them. I have one cat at the moment. She is 11 years old and a total cutie.
If you had to choose would you rather be blind or deaf?
Oh jeez! That's a difficult question. Obviously I am thankful that I have both my sight and my hearing. I don't think I know enough about either to be able to make an informed decision. 
What life motto do you live by?
I think that we should treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves.  That is probably one of the biggest moral codes that I stick to in life. If only more people would live by this motto.
Do you prefer reading fiction or non-fiction?
Definitely non-fiction. I love reading biographies. I think I just like to read real stories about real people and their experiences. I like to understand what factors have socially and psychologically shaped them as a person.
What’s your go to skin care routine?
My favourite skin care routine consists of a good cleanse with Boots tea tree & witch hazel cleansing & toning lotion. Then Chanel gentle biphase eye make up remover. I use No.7 protect & perfect serum and then No.7 protect & perfect day cream.
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate. I'm such a fan of ice cream. And cake. And biscuits. And chocolate. If only all of that was good for us. Sigh. I have always loved ice cream. My grandad used to have an Ice cream horse and kart and then an ice cream van. Plus I'm Italian so I can't really keep myself away from the stuff. 
Describe your personality in 3 words?
Considerate, artistic & caring.
What’s your chinese zodiac sign and does it describe you well?
I have no idea. I will have to google it.......(googling).....oh apparently I am an earth snake :( ..... Well for a start I am not slithery and scheming at all I am the total opposite. It does describe me spot on in terms of other things such as being calm, friendly, hardworking and sensible.
Coffee, Tea or Hot Chocolate?
Hot chocolateAlthough, I have recently become obsessed with peppermint tea.  It's so good for you and makes you feel a bit better if you are unwell. I've been drinking green tea for a while but it is not as tasty as peppermint tea.

My questions to you guys are:
1)Would you like to make Youtube videos?
2)Would you rather be chased by a horse sized duck or ten duck sized horses?
3)What is your favourite nail polish?
4) Why did you decide to start a blog?
5)What are your favourite TV programmes?
6)Do you ever take part in the #bbloggers chats?
7)Which pieces of technology do you use to write your blog? e.g. laptop, tablet etc...
8)Which 3 fashion stores do you shop at the most?
9) iPhone or Blackberry?
10)What are your favourite items of clothing at the moment?
