The Liebster award!

I have been nominated for the Liebster award for the first time! After some research into what this means I discovered that The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. (In case anyone was wondering 'Liebster' is German and means dearest.)

Upon being nominated, you are asked to do the following;
1. Tell 11 things about yourself.
2. Answer 11 Questions asked by the nominating blogger.
3. Nominate 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Ask 11 questions to the bloggers you nominated.
5. Inform the bloggers you chose.

I was nominated by http://colourmein-sc.blogspot.co.uk/ (Everyone check out her blog!)

Okay, here we go!

11 Things about me

1. I am 5"2 and a half (the extra half is very important!)
2. I am a size 3 to 4 foot, and I tend to buy any shoes I see on sale in my size, as I've managed to convince myself that 'its a sign' that i must own them. (mental)
3. I have incredibly bendy fingers which really freak people out. (I can bend them backwards to touch my hand)
4. I am currently studying a Fashion Foundation year at Ravesbourne, and I want to go on to do a degree in Fashion design.
5. I'm really bad at watching films! A lot of people get really shocked at the lack of films I've seen!
6. I'm incredibly clumsy. I fall over and break almost everything!
7. I really like to learn things from people, like when people start to share things about something they're really interested in. Not only is it interesting, but I like that people want to share their interests with me!
8. I'm quite a fussy eater, but recently I've got much better, I've been really trying!
9. I am capable of pulling the strangest faces.
10. I seem to attract strange situations that people can never believe are real!
11. I have an obsession with pillows, and I currently sleep with ten of them. 

The 11 questions I was asked are:

1. What is your most recent purchase?
    The boots and skirt I previously blogged about.

2.Makeup, hair or nails?
   Definitely makeup! I rarely have my nails painted as it chips off within minutes, and I don't mind having my hair scraped back into a ponytail as long as my makeup is done!

3. Where do you shop most often?
    Charity shops and eBay, I'm a massive bargain hunter. (Although I do go to all the usual shops too.)

4. Most embarrassing moment?
    Oh gosh, where do I start! The first thing that comes to mind is, I once fell over on stage in a dance show, with the whole school watching! (I was in a very visible place on the stage so i was definitely seen!)

5. What is your number one life ambition?
    I don't usually like to think to far ahead, but I'd really like to have a job that I love and doesn't stress me out or make me worry too much. (I'm a massive worrier and get really stressed quite easily so it'd be nice to be able to stop that!)

6. Is your wardrobe organised?
    Yes! It used to be in colour order, but I'm not quite that organised anymore, however I do know exactly where everything is!

7. What is your favourite beauty product?
    Dry Shampoo! I can't live without it, not only does it make your hair cleaner but it adds volume and helps my hair stay in place a bit more! i use it all the time, even if my hair is freshly washed.

8. Fashion crushes?
   Ooh this is a tough one! I can't really say I have one but I absolutely love everything Katy Perry wears in her video for Thinking of You. I wish i could buy every single one of the outfits!

9. What is your favourite album?
    Again, I don't really have one! I go through phases of liking an album and then I listen to it so much I end up hating it! (I don't know if that's normal)

10. What first attracted you to blogging?
      I found that a lot of people I knew were complimenting my outfits and were really interested in some of the bargains I had picked up and i wanted to share my finds and opinions with more people!

11. Is there a current trend you dislike?
       I'm not the biggest fan of studs anymore, don't get me wrong, they can look nice on some things, but I think the phase has been around for far too long now and I feel like they're making an appearance on way too many things!

My 11 Questions!

1. What first made you want to blog?
2. What is your favorite piece of clothing and why?

3. What is your proudest moment?
4. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be, and why?
5. If you could describe yourself in one word what would it be?
6. Where's your favourite place to shop?

7. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
8. What is your idea of a perfect day?

9. Number one beauty product?
10. Do you have any bad habbits? If so what are they?
11. What would you like to have achieved before the end of 2013?
