To be frank, when Naeemah from the Jam Jar blog nominated me for a Liebster award I had no idea what it was. Granted, I have only been blogging for six months. However, as soon as I started doing some research on the matter I realised what a massive compliment it was. Simply put, the Liebster award is an award given to up and coming (and I imagine innovative) bloggers. The aim is to create awareness of these blogs and to give the bloggers some well deserved exposure. I was nominated with ten other bloggers of her choice (the rule is that you have to have less than 200 followers).You then answer a set of questions, nominate your own candidates and relate questions to them. It is like one big blogger group hug :-)
Here are the questions Naeemah posed
1. While you are writing a blog post, which position are you most comfortable in?
I tend to fall asleep very quickly when I am not supposed to so I do all my posts sitting up right.
2. What do you listen to while blogging?
Nothing, I get distracted easily so I prefer absolute silence. There's enough noises in my head already.
3. Which beauty item is your holy grail?
I fell in love with mascara in high school, although at the time I had a very cheap version. I love a good foundation too.
4. What is you favourite tv show?
The Carrie Diaries and my guilty pleasure is anything on the E channel or Style Network.
5. If you had to pick between a muffin and a cupcake, which one would you take?
CUPCAKE! I would put icing and sprinkles on that muffin and convince it to be a cupcake :-)
6. How many times have you burned yourself with a hot styling tool?
Only a few times this year. Lets hope for even less next year.
7. If you could be any Disney character, which one would you be and why?
Cinderella. I imagine she doesn't have a clothing (or anything) budget and I am a total sucker for a happy ending. Lesson: lying and scheming never works out!
8. Horror, comedy, action, thriller, romcom?
I have always been a romcom kind of lady but lately I find myself gravitating towards thrillers.
9. Fill in the missing words: I would rather than ?
I would rather wrestle an alligator than lose a family member.
10. If you could have anything made in your honour what would it be?
I would love a stunning pair of shoes but I would settle for a mascara made in my honour.
11. Coca- cola or Pepsi?
Coke on the rocks :-)
I have really enjoyed doing this post so a huge thank you to Naeemah for finding me cool enough to nominate me. I was nominated a second time and will do a post on that soon. As for me nominating other bloggers, I think choosing 11 would not be fair seeing that I read so many amazing blogs. Therefore I have decided that in my next post I will list all the blogs I enjoy reading and let you guys decide for yourself. I hope you enjoyed this little slice of my world....
