Liebster award

I've been nominated twice for the Liebster award which I can't believe! Firstly by the beautiful Cara and secondly by the lovely Jade
If you're new to this like me you could be thinking "What is a Liebster award?" Well a Liebster award is an award given to a blogger, nominated by other bloggers, who has less than 200 followers. It’s a fun way to discover other blogs and build some fun relationships. Here are the rules:

  1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.

2. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the person you were nominated by.

3. You pick up to 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.

4. You cannot nominate the person who has nominated you.

5. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

As Cara nominated me first I will be answering her queations which are:

1. What are your favourite musicians/bands? Or, if you're struggling to think, your favourite genres of music? I'm struggling to pick a few as theres so many but I guess Death Cab For Cutie,  The Arctic monkeys, Passenger and First Aid Kit
2. How has blogging been for you so far? Have you had positive experiences or negative experiences? I've really enjoyed my expericence with blogging so far. I find it's a great way to find inspiration. I feel like I've been accepted into a friendly community. Blogging also gives me something to work on when I'm well enough. 
3. Apart from blogging, do you have any particular hobbies or something you enjoy doing regularly? I love being creative and at the moment I'm taking some art classes for a few hours a week.
4. What's your favourite item in your wardrobe? My favourite item in my wardrobe is a 1960's pastel yellow dress which I've owned for three years but never worn out yet - maybe a blog post on that soon...
5. Who is your ultimate fashion icon? I know so many people will say this but Audrey Hepburn. I just love how elegant, sophisticated and timeless she always looked.
6. What inspired you to start blogging? A friend suggested that I try blogging to share my outfits.
7. Which high-end and drugstore makeup brands are your favourite?  Clarins. - I can't live without my Clarins foundation and they do amazing lipsticks. I like Barry M too - I've got so many of their nail varnishes.
8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I'd love to live by the sea, I'm not sure where though. Italy? Bali? Cuba? Cornwall? I can't pick!
9. Name your top three favourite blogs at the moment. My top three favourite blogs are by - Megan - the fairytale princess with such lovely hair, I really enjoyed reading and seeing photos about/from her dreamy wedding. Cara - not because she nominated me but because I love her style and that she blogs about different things that interest her not just outfits or reviews. Adora - I love how Adora always has beautiful backgrounds for her amazing thrifty outfits. I also meet her recently and I can tell you she is just as lovely as she seems on her blog.
10. What's your favourite breakfast? This is the point where I'm struggling to think of questions, and I REALLY love breakfast. Hahaha Oooh Cara I do love a good breakfast! One of my favourites at the moment is graze porridge boxes... They taste so much better than normal porridge.
11. How comfortable are you with your presence on the internet? Sometimes I feel a bit paranoid about it so I'm curious about what other people think! This is something I struggle with - how much should I give away about myself after all I can't pick who can see my posts. I got pretty paranoid after reading about a girl who blogged and found out her photos found their way into an adult website. That's got to be rare though. 

I also have to write eleven facts about myself which are:

1 I love to sing when I'm home alone often rediculous songs that I make up.

2 I talk to my cats in meows

3 I never stop day dreaming and still making up different worlds for myself

4 I once fell off a horse on a carousel mid ride and can't bring myself to get back on one even though they used to be my favourite ride.

5 I started Christmas shopping in January to avoid being stressed in December 

6 I love animals and I used to have a pet rabbit and pet rats.

7 My favourite perfume is daisy by Marc Jacobs

8 I used to live in black skinny jeans, black hoodies, checkered vans, and had a blue streak in my hair. I hated floral prints which now make up 70% of my wardrobe.

9 I believe in Karma.

10 A few years ago when I was 18 two friends and I checked into a very well known cheap hotel chain. We got drunk and jumped on the bed with our hair up in towel turbans.

11 I buy 70 % of my clothes from eBay and charity shops 

 The 11 blogs I nominate are:

My questions for you if you chose to accept are:

1 what is you're favourite aspect of blogging?
2 What's you're favourite thing to do with friends?
3 If you could be a fictional character who would you be any why?
