I've Been Nominated - Again!

Saturday, 23 March 2013

Hey Stylicias!

As you guys know, I don't usually make new posts on Saturdays - well, technically I try to schedule some for the following week on the weekend, but today is different as last night I was nominated for a Liebster Award again - by bussikatzl's world!

However, this time, there's been a different set of questions assigned for me to do, and a bit of a change on the rules altogether which I wasn't aware of before - so I figured a new post to answer these questions and set the new rules straight would be a good idea!

In case you've not heard of it already, The Liebster Award is for new bloggers with less than 200 followers basically trying to get their blogs noticed. You nominate the 11 blogs that you think deserve the award after you've been nominated yourself and answered the questions, then those blogs do the same etc etc.

Here's a brief recap on the 'new' (ones I hadn't heard of before) rules:

The Rules

  1. Share 11 things about yourself.
  2. Answer the 11 questions. 
  3. Choose 11 fellow blogs to nominate. The nominees must have less than 200 Google Friend Connect Followers and be told via comment on their blog.
  4. Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers that were nominated.
  5. Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.
So, let's start again!

  • I love The Big Bang Theory. Like, so much. I want to marry Sheldon Cooper!
  • I come from a big family of 7. The house is rarely ever empty!
  • I have way more dresses in my wardrobe than I actually need. Some of them haven't even been worn yet.
  • I'm a natural brunette with blue eyes, but I've dyed my hair plenty of colours in the past: dark brown, black, purpley-red, pink streaks, blonde highlights, and it's now ombre. I plan to go fully blonde in the near future!
  • I go to France nearly every year, but I'm yet to visit Paris properly - we only ever drive through it and I'm DYING to look around it!
  • At the moment, I either want to be a writer or journalist in the future - but I'm so indecisive and still not certain what exactly I want to do with my life!
  • I never tan naturally. Ever. Fake tan is my best friend.
  • I have a phobia of rollercoasters. And wasps.
  • I love dancing - but only in my own company!
  • I really want to learn how to drive, but I just wish lessons/insurance/cars didn't cost so much :-(
  • I have a very weird collarbone. One side of the bone sticks out more than the other?! Haha
2. Answer the 11 questions that your tagger gave you

1. Who is your fashion icon and why?
To be honest, I'm not sure I have one! There's not someone's style I look at that I try to imitate, but there are a few who I think have/had an amazing sense of style - like Rihanna, Beyonce, Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's, and Marilyn Monroe of course!

2. What are the 5 pieces you couldn't live without?
My laptop, phone, my bed, make-up, and hair straighteners!

3. The thing you like the most about yourself?
Physically, I quite like my eyes, and non-physically, I guess I'd have to say my determination to make life great and how I managed to turn things around for myself. I'm proud of that! I've been through a lot but come out stronger :-)

4.Your perfect outfit for the 1 date with the parents?
I'm a bit confused by this question.. does this mean a date with MY parents or a date with a boyfriend and his parents? I'll go with the latter.. a classy little black dress never fails!

5. What kind of phone do you have and why?
I have a Blackberry 9320 in white because, last year, I got my old Blackberry stolen at a gig.. I wanted one of them again, but I hate it now. They're so rubbish! Need an iphone! Haha

6. Do you like vegetables?
No. Not at all. My diet is so bad - the only vegetable I can stomach is corn, and I only like some fruit. I'm not the healthiest!

7. When you grow up what would you like to be?
I already sort of answered this question, but ideally, I'd like to be a writer/fashion journalist/magazine editor, something along those lines. I used to want to be an actress until I took drama classes and realised I hated it ha!

8. Tell me about your dreams.
My dreams are so weird.. I can barely remember them, but I've noticed I've had a recurring one lately of me actually being on rollercoasters. I get that same horrible, sickly feeling in my stomach, but for some reason, in my dreams, I actually enjoy being on them! So weird.

9. What is your favorite TV show and why?
BIG BANG THEORY because I love Sheldon and Leonard and Penny and Raj, they're all so cute and it never fails to make me laugh.

10. Flats or high heels?
Well, I love high heels - I just suck at walking in them! So for practicality reasons, I'd say flats, but I do prefer the look of heels.

11. Do you prefer the bright or the dark?
Well, that depends really.. but I'd say bright, because I'm sick of the dark gloomy weather we're getting!

My 11 Questions!
  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. If  you could be anywhere right now, where would you be?
  3. What do you get complimented on the most?
  4. Describe your perfect holiday?
  5. Who inspires you the most and why?
  6. What is your dream job?
  7. Where is your favourite place to shop?
  8. What's something not many people know about you?
  9. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why?
  10. If you could marry a celebrity who would it be?
  11. Where do you hope to be in 10 years?

And finally, my nominees so far for the Liebster Award:

(I'm still on the hunt for new blogs with less than 200 followers, so in the meantime, if you'd like to be nominated, make sure you leave a comment with your blog link, telling me why you deserve the award and I'll be sure to check you out!)
