Liebster Award

Thursday, 11 September 2014

I was recently tagged to do this fun idea of the Liebster Award by the lovely Eleanor from Eleanor's adventures (click on the link and check out her wonderful blog!).  Sorry it's taken me so long to do!! Your basically given a set of questions to answer and then nominate blogs. It may sound sad but receiving a nomination actually made me really excited as I feel like this is the first time I've done a post that interacts with other bloggers so yeahhhh aha!

Here are the questions Eleanor wanted me to answer:

1. When did you start blogging and why? 
I actually created this blog late 2012 I believe, but have only been blogging more regularly for around the majority of this year. This summer break I've really got into the swing of things. As to why I started, I actually came across the blogging world due to YouTube, I watch videos everyday and discovered a couple of blogs that I just couldn't stop reading. I think the main blog that made me want to start one myself was LLYMLRS, I simply love everything about her blog. Plus I've always seemed to be good at writing about things I like and it's a way to build my self confidence.

2. If you could meet one person (living or dead) who would it be and what would you ask them?
That's so tough. Think it would have to be Bette Midler, as strange as that might sound. She has a fantastic singing voice and sense of humour so I reckon we'd have a right laugh. She also plays the lead role in my favourite film of all time (Hocus Pocus) so I would simply have to ask her about that. I think she's a legend. Freddie Mercury was a very very close second though!

3. One book or film that influenced your life in a major way and how? 
Shamefully I don't read books (something I'm not proud of) so I guess that means I have to pick a film. Hmmm... it's quite recent but I've recently watched both the Purge films, its not like changed my life completely but it's made me think about life in a different way as it's quite an interesting yet terrifying concept. I would highly recommend watching them! (I struggled with this question :/ aha)

4. If you could visit any destination in the world where would you go and what would you do there?
I'd go to Hawaii because quite frankly I can never see my self actually going there. I would love to explore and check out the beautiful sites . To experience the culture in what I believe looks like paradise would be a dream!
5. Your hopes and dreams for the next 10 years? 
I have always wanted to move to America so I hope that would have happened.  I'd like to have a job where I get to travel and see many places I didn't think I would. As soppy as it sounds I want to have found a boyfriend and perhaps have got married. But if it doesn't happen then c'est la vie haha!
6. Your dream career and your nightmare job? 
Well my dream career at the moment would be to be some kind of costume maker/ seamstress. I'd like to do work for TV/film whether that be for a period drama, dancing show or heck even making wrestling costumes (actually working for the WWE would be epic). A nightmare job, having to work with something linked to politics, I have no time for it and I think all politicians are liars and don't care about the future of human beings. Seriously politics makes so me soooo mad!
7. All time favourite album/ piece of music? 
This is a nightmare question for me. I think my favourite album is Queen greatest hits as it has all the classics and I just love that band. Common Dreads by Enter Shikari is up there as well. They're probably both my favourites. I love Hoppipola by Sigur Ros, so that's probably my favourite piece of music it's so uplifting, you'd recognise it if you heard it.
8. Who/ what is your biggest creative influence? 
The whole idea of punk has influenced me in quite a big way. I love everything to do with it the music, style, ideas shared. It's just the way that you don't have to follow what people think and you should do what you want to do.
9. Your all time favourite piece of clothing? 
The leather jacket! it's a classic, you can get so many varieties. Plus I think everyone feels a little more badass when you wear one (no just me good haha). I think there so easy to wear and I think its justifiable to spend a bit more money on one, investing and all.
10. If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life what would you choose?
Chinese takeaway hands down :)

Right so I nominate:

Char Hurst
Belle Histories
