It's an honour

Honoured, flattered, chuffed and so blessed. This is how I feel about being nominated for a Liebster Award by fellow blogger Sarah from Run Shop Eat Repeat. Now for those of you who don't know what the Liebster award is, it's an award given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers, by other bloggers. It's such a fun and awesome way to give praise to other bloggers and let them know that you like what they've done (or do) on their blog.  

Here are the rules for receiving this award:

Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
Choose people to nominate and link them in your post.

Go to their page and tell them.

No tag backs!

Well here it goes:

1. When did you start your blog?
I started blogging in my third year at University. It was part of a class project we had to do.

2. Why did you start it?
Well to be honest I started blogging only because it was for marks (University marks that is) and it died as soon as the academic year was up. Then a year later I decided to give it another go, this time with a much better indication of how I wanted my blog to come together, what I wanted to blog about and for who I wanted to blog. 
3. Favourite quote?
"A girl should be two things, fabulous and classy," Coco Chanel

4. Summer or winter?
Summer all the way. It's mainly because I'm so tiny so I tend to freeze throughout winter. I've walked around my house wearing winter pyjamas, my gown, socks, slippers and clutching a hot water bottle. I wear a minimum of three layers during winter. 

5. If you could live anywhere, where would you choose?
Somewhere by the coast. So that I can spend my summer weekends lazing on the beach reading a book or two. 

6. What's something you can't leave the house without?
My iPhone, yes I'm one of those people who loves their phone. But it's very useful to me as some of my blog posts are inspired by the photos I take with my phone. 

7. What's your dream job?
To be a community manager for a big time fashion label, household goods company or wine farm. 

8. Favorite food?
If you've been following this blog for a while you'll instantly know the answer to this....sushi. I write/obsess about it enough. 

9. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Hmm, married (no kids, I need a lot more prep for those), located somewhere down by the coast, working as a community manager for an awesome brand and being deliriously happy.  

10. What's your go-to drink?
Wine. Wow, I answered that one with way too much ease *hides head in shame.*

11. Have a piece of advice you'd give to your teenage self?
You'll always be shorter than everyone else but instead of hating it, embrace it as later in life you'll discover the huge benefits of being tiny. 

So here are my nominations for the Liebster award and their questions.
