Liebster Award

I have just got an e-mail saying i've been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Lara at Life by Lara - thank you so much! It honestly made my morning. The Liebster Award is given to bloggers with under 200 followers to show them that people do like their blog and as some motivation to keep going. It helps show you that your blog isn't a bad blog - it's just undiscovered! And I think it's a wonderful idea!

Part of the award is you answer some questions given by the person who nominated you and state 11 facts so your followers can get to know you a little bit more, and to pass it on you have to give your own 11 questions and nominate 11 blogs to nominate for this fab little award - such a lovely idea.

11 Facts About Me:

1) My cat is my absolute best friend and I am a self confessed cat lady!
2) I absolutely HATE horror films as i'm very squeamish but I love the Paranormal Activity series.
3) I'm indecisive about everything - it will literally take me and hour to two to decide on a colour to paint my nails, then will more than likely change it again a few hours later as I changed my mind. This is the only reason why I don't have a tattoo.
4) I used to have 9 piercings but now I only have 7 as I took my snake bites out. I now have 3 in each ear lobe and my tragus in my left ear.
5) I am a massive fan of The Sims games.
6) My favourite YouTubers are PrankVsPrank (also known as BFvsGF), Danisnotonfire, AmazingPhil, Pixiwoo, Panacea81 (Lauren Luke) and Melon Lady.
7) The best place I have ever traveled to was New York and that was in 2009 as part of a college trip.
8) I absolutely love living in England, my dad always says I will move to LA one day as he knows my love for that place, but I love England too much.
9) I have a mixed accent as I have lived in different parts of England. I grew up in Leicester, Lived in Sheffield and went to Sunderland University and lived with people from Liverpool, Newcastle, London and the Midlands.
10) My favourite seasons are Winter and Summer. I don't like the inbetween ones such as Spring and Autumn.
11) I will meet Kat Von D one day, this is not up for discussion.

11 Questions from Lara

1) If you could time travel, when would you go and why?
That's really hard! I think I'd travel back to when I went to New York as I don't think I took the full opportunity I had and didn't do nearly as much as I could have done. Or, I would go back to Year 10 and Year 11 and re-do those years at school as I didn't do my best and missed a lot of school because of things happenings, and I regret it and because of that I didn't get good GCSE's and that in turn has affected what I went on to study later as I was limited, so it's something I regret.

2) Your favourite song lyric and why?
I honestly don't have one! It changes everytime I have a new favourite song which is every few days. My all time favourite song is Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard so it'd probably be a song lyric from that.

3) If you could meet and talk to one person, dead or alive, real or fictional who would it be and why?
Kat Von D or The Kaulitz Twins from Tokio Hotel because I look up to them SO much and they are my favourite people in the world and the inspire me a lot every day.

4) One make up item you couldn't live without
Foundation. I don't like my skin one single bit even though it's pretty clear but it has uneven skin tone and is horrible!

5) What is your all time favourite movie?
Ooh! Hard one. It was Rock of Ages as when it came out I decided I was completely in love with Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruises' character). But Step Brothers will always have a special place in my heart.

6) Somebody who's style you really admire and why?
Kat Von D. Simply because I think she is the most gorgeous woman on the planet and she is a very inspiring woman to me and she doesn't care a single bit what people think of her and dresses and does her make up to make her happy and not to fit in and have make up how you 'should'. My favourite eye make up of hers is a different coloured eyeshadow on each eye, and sometimes she'll wear different coloured shoes on each foot! She honestly doesn't care and I think that is very admirable. She's just great, plus I love her views on everything and I pretty much agree with everything she says.

Plus I have spoken to her a few times on twitter (!) and she asked for a picture of me wearing her dress at my Graduation last year and when I sent it to her, she replied telling me I was 'so beautiful' (post about that here). She's such a lovely lady and It's my dream to met her.

7) What inspires you?
SO many things! Kat Von D, The Kaulitz Twins, My nan who died last year who inspired me so much because she told me to do what makes me happy and was always there for me not matter what. And my dad, because he is my best friend.

8) What countries have you been to?
USA, Spain, Majorca and Cyprus.

9) Who is your celebrity crush?
Tom Kaulitz, Channing Tatum, Andy Biersack, Bradley Cooper, M Shadows (from Avenged Sevenfold), - I have so many more too.

10) What is your signature scent?
Black XS L'exces or Katy Perry 'Purr' (a celebrity perfume, oh my god!)

11) Name a tv series you could watch over and over again.
Friends & The Big Bang Theory.
Because everyone needs a Sheldon in their lives.
