The Liebster Award!

Hi Guys and welcome to another Blog post!

I was very kindly nominated for The Liebster Award by Zoe (@zoezozoblog on Twitter) at www.zoezozo.blogspot.co.uk. This is an internet award given to Bloggers by other Bloggers. I think it is such a nice way to spread the love and support that every Blogger needs. The idea of this award is that I am going to answer 11 questions that Zoe has come up with, and then think of another 11 questions to nominate to a few other Bloggers. I am super excited to get started, so let's get going!


1) What and why was your first Blog post?

My first Blog post was 'Get To Know Me!' I thought that this was the most logical way to kick start my Blog, as it gave people an idea of what kind of personality I have, and gave me a chance to connect with my readers.

2) Advice you would give to a Blogger who was having a writers block/creative block?

I have had many of these and I would say that it is okay for you to take some time off of Blogging. I had a really bad one recently where I just couldn't think of any ideas, and I was really lacking motivation. I decided to take a few weeks off, go out for some autumnal walks and clear my head. I feel like that time off really helped me to refresh and I came back more determined than ever. Never feel pressured to post every week. As much as I say it is good to have an upload schedule, if you are not feeling creative and the Blog post is forced just for the sake of uploading, then people are not going to enjoy reading it and you are not going to enjoy writing it.


3) Do you have any ambitions in life, besides Blogging?

I am currently training to become an accountant and I am studying hard to pass my exams. I would like to say that one day I can work my way up to a manager/partner role.

4) Your go to product for a pamper/me night?

I don't have very many of these, because I work full time in the week and then come home to study. But, on the odd occasion that I do get to have a 'me' night, I love to get in the bath and use a LUSH bath bomb or bubble bar. I don't really have a specific product that I use because I like to try different ones.

5) What is your favourite social media and why?

Instagram by far! I love taking pictures and editing them. Also, most of my Blog traffic comes from Instagram so I like to focus on this one to promote my Blog.


6) What is your favourite brand? Can be make-up or skin care.

I am going to be greedy and pick one of each! My favourite make-up brand is probably Revolution. You can get some amazing quality products that are not excessive in price, and their eyeshadow palettes are incredible. My favourite skin care product has got to be Clearasil. I have always suffered with oily skin prone to breakouts and I had tried every skin care product under the sun. Clearasil has worked wonders clearing up my skin and has also helped to reduce excess oil. I would highly recommend this to anyone suffering with the same problem. Plus it is reasonably priced so very affordable.

7) (Seeming it is so close!) What is your favourite Christmas movie? Which one gives you all the Christmas feels?

The Polar Express! This is actually in one of my Blogmas posts, so you will have to stay tuned to find out why...


8) What is your all time brand that you would love to be on the PR list for and why?

Well, since I have already mentioned them in my post, LUSH would have to be one of my dream PR brands. I love their products so much, especially the festive ones!

9) Where do you hope to be in 5 years time? Can be in life generally or in terms of your Blog.

I would like to think that I will still be Blogging and I will have a reasonable sized audience. I'd also like to be working with brands and attending Blogging events. But outside of the Blogging world I will hopefully be a qualified Accounting Technician, working towards my Chartered qualification.


10) If you were given the funds to go anywhere in the world to do a Blog post where would you go and why?

This is such a tricky question because there are so many places that I would love to go! If I had to choose just one, it would probably be somewhere like Hawaii or Dubai. I am a sucker for beaches and clear water, and the picture opportunities would be crazy. I would love to be able to travel the world! Maybe one day, hey?

11) For you, what has been the best thing to come out of starting a Blog?

Self-confidence. I have received so many positive comments through social media and met so many lovely people. Also, viewing my Blog stats makes me feel good about myself. To see that people from all over the world are reading my Blog is an amazing feeling. I have people from America, France, Germany and even from places like Ukraine and Russia!


My 11 questions are:

1) What is the main struggle you face with Blogging and what do you do to cope with this?
2) What was the main reason that inspired you to create a Blog?
3) Name one thing that you wish you'd known about Blogging before you started?
4) What is your favourite thing about Blogging?
5) Do you edit your photos? If so what software do you use?
6) What are your favourite Blog posts to read and why?
7) How did you tell your friends and family about your Blog? And how did they react?
8) What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a Blog but is not sure where to begin?
9) On average, how long does it take you to put together a Blog post? Including taking the pictures and editing them.
10) How old were you when you started Blogging?
11) What is the main thing that you are hoping to get out of your Blog?

And I nominate:

Dreams and Lashes - www.dreamsandlashes.com


Thank you again to Zoe for nominating me, I have absolutely loved writing this post and I hope you have enjoyed reading it. This will be the last you hear from me until Blogmas starts next Friday! I cannot believe how quickly it has come around (I'd better get a move on...) Head over to my social media, which will be linked below as always, so that you never miss a new post.

Catch you next time!
