Liebster Award!

Thanks to the lovely Katy, over at Drugstore Junkie, I was nominated for the Liebster Award, an award given out to bloggers with under 200 followers, from other bloggers! I really enjoyed reading her answers to the questions, and the questions she left for me were brilliant, and you can read the answers to them below.

If you don't know, the rules are pretty simple:

-Thank the person that nominated you, and link to their blog.
-Answer the questions provided by the nominator.
-Nominate and link 10 other bloggers, with less than 200 followers.
-Create ten new questions for your nominees to answer.


1. What is your favourite TV series?
This is such a hard question to start with, as I have so many favourite TV shows. I'd have to say that Friends is definitely my all time favourite show, I usually spend most of my day watching Friends re-runs on Comedy Central, before finding something else to do at 9pm when they change their schedule.

Another all time favourite is Law & Order: SVU, Olivia Benson, one of the shows main protagonists, is one of my favourite characters from any TV series ever, and the show uses current events to it's advantage - which means it is able to keep revitalising itself and drawing in viewership of from a variety of different age groups. Did I mention that it has been running since 1999, has sixteen seasons, and has been renewed for a seventeenth, which will begin airing in September!

Also coming back in September is the fifth season of, Once upon a Time, which I am absolutely crazy about. I have so many theories regarding that show, especially now that Emma is the Dark one.

Wow I have rambled. Lets move on!

2. If you could give one piece of advice to somebody looking to start a blog, what would it be?
Do it for yourself. Do it because you enjoy it. Don't do it because you want freebies, or because you want to be the next Tanya Burr. Beauty blogs are ten a penny, you need to have something that makes it unique. Be yourself.

But in all seriousness, just do what you want to do. Blog what you want to blog about, and have fun. If it starts to feel like more of a chore than a fun little hobby, then maybe it's not for you.

3.What do you think is an over-rated/hyped product?
NAKED PALETTES. I have one. They ARE amazing, but so many people talk about them as if they are the best thing since sliced bread. Part of me wonders if so many people are raving about them is because other people are raving about them, and they are all just being sheep following public opinion rather than forming their own opinion.

4. What current fashion trends are you following at the moment?
Fashion? I've been wearing skinny jeans and oversized tee's since I was fifteen. I should probably change that. I should dress more age appropriate. I find it hard to find clothes that fit me properly though, because my boobs are fricken massive. I don't understand why people want big boobs. I would love to be flat chested.

5. Favourite Disney Character?
Live action: Mary Poppins, Cartoon: Pochahontos/The little mermaid.  I don't even know why.

6. What is your dream career?
To be a novelist. I want to stay inside my house all day writing novels, and never have to venture into the outside world again, aside from going to really cool places: forests, places of historic interest, the music shop/bar that I will secretly own.

7. Where do you online shop the most?
Amazon. Books. Next day delivery. Random things I don't need, but I find a use for. Also Hungry house. I order a lot of takeout.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Boobs. I want smaller boobs. and I know that it is possible to have a reduced, but I don't like the idea of some strange person touching my boobs, plus there is a risk of you losing your nipples! I'm kind of fond of my nipples, they have been with me for twenty three years, so I'd hate for them to not be there anymore.

9. If you could spend one hour with anyone in the world right now, who would it be?
Too many people. Angelina Jolie, Susan Sarandon, Hayley Williams, Winona Ryder, Stephen King, Obama, Arthur Dent & Ford Prefect, Future me.

10. Do you have/want any tattoos? If so what are they and do they mean anything to you?
I have eleven. They don't really have meanings behind them, or as to why I got them, they are all just random pieces that I got simply because I wanted them. I have Mary Poppins and Bert on the back of my shoulder, because I have loved them since I was little. I like to think they are all slightly original, as I haven't just wandered into the studio, and chosen one from a book - nor have I gone and got some generic bullshit that everyone seems to have *cough cough* Stars/pawprints/tribal shite. I have song lyrics, a balloon, a bird, and a few other little ones that I did myself, because I bought a tattoo gun on eBay and thought, what the fuck.  My favourite tattoo has to be a person that I have on the outside of my lower arm, with their feet on the ground, and their head in the clouds - you may recognise it as part of the artwork that, Hayley Williams of Paramore drew for their song, Brick by Boring Brick.
