Liebster Award

Hello everybody and welcome to our first proper post in 2014!

So we have recently been nominated for the Liebster Award by the beautiful Katie from Keeping Up With Katie. We had never heard of this award before but after looking at other people’s blog posts about it we fell in love with the idea. Basically the Liebster Award is a way of creating recognition for small blogs which we think is great! Here are the rules:

  • Make a post about the Liebster Award and thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Write 11 interesting things about yourself
  • Answer the 11 questions created by the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and notify them about the nomination
  • Write 11 new questions for your nominees

11 Things About Myself

  1. My lucky number is 11. I feel that strongly about it that I always make a wish at 11:11 (when I see the time haha) and I even booked my driving test for 11:11 and passed!
  2. I love books and reading. My favourite books are the Twilight Saga, Water for Elephants and Harry Potter.
  3. I am only 5 foot 2 and I constantly get called shorty by my sister.
  4. I am currently studying Science and hope to get in to university in September.
  5. I don’t like the taste of alcohol and don’t drink so I'm always designated driver.

  9. I love everything shabby chic
  10. One of my guilty pleasures is Morrissey and The Smiths. I absolutely love their music and I got Morrissey’s autobiography for Christmas.
  11. One of my all time favourite film is The Sound of Music. As a kid I wanted to be Fräulein Maria and even got a guitar for Christmas so I could be like her!

  1. My favourite animal is dogs, ever since I was little I wished for a dog and we finally got one nearly two years ago. It took me 10 years to convince my parents!
  2. I'm a filmaholic! I could watch films all day long!
  3. I love many various genres of music.
  4. I have a Batman obsession!!
  5. I don't have a certain style of clothes, if I like something I'll wear it :-)
  6. I couldn't sleep a whole night on my own until I was 8 when we got a hamster, how bizarre!
  7. I broke both my ulna and my radius bone in my left arm at the same time playing badminton.

  10. I have a short temper.
  11. I love ham and Wotsits (cheese puffs) sandwiches! :-D

11 Questions Created By The Blogger Who Nominated Us

Who is your favourite blogger and why?
Ellie: My favourite blogger is probably Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter. She has such a great writing style and always manages to make me laugh.
Brooke: My favourite blogger has to be Zoella, although she hasn't posted in a while, she's given me plenty if ideas for hairstlyes and products to buy.

How long have you been blogging for?
Both: We started the blog back in November 2013 so we’ve not been blogging for very long but we are loving it so far and are so overwhelmed with the amount of views and lovely comments we get.

Have you made a new years resolution?  If so, what is it?
Ellie: My new year’s resolution is to stop procrastinating and to also get fit for our holiday in July.
Brooke: Yes! Mine are to be more spontaneous, hopefully lose weight and tone up for summer and finally be more confident in myself :-)

What is your favourite make up brand?
Ellie: Like I said in the facts above I love quite a few but my favourite out of them is M.A.C.
Brooke: Either M.A.C or Urban Decay.

What is your favourite high street store?
Ellie: My favourite store is Primark. The clothes are really cheap compared to other stores and for the amount of time stuff is in fashion for these days it’s well worth it.
Brooke: My favourite is Primark too, purely because the items are so inexpensive but extremely fashionable, pretty much my whole wardrobe is Primark clothes. I do also love New Look, however that is slightly more expensive than Primark.

If you were given £1000 would you rather spend it on lots of high street items, or one designer item?
Ellie: For sure I would rather spend it on lots of high street items! I don’t really like most of the designer clothes plus for £1000 I could get wardrobes and wardrobes worth of clothes from the high street.
Brooke: Lots of high street items definitely, designer clothes have never really interested me and at least I would be able to get many more items.

Do you play any instruments?
Ellie: I don’t play anymore but when I was at school I took music for GCSE and played the keyboard/piano and I was part of the school keyboard band (so exciting I know!).
Brooke: I don't play any instruments anymore, but I use to play violin and keyboard/piano, I was also part of the school keyboard band for a little while.

If you could speak to your younger self, would you give them any advise?
Ellie: Probably to embrace my ginger hair. As a younger teenager I used to have it highlighted so it was a lot blonder but now I love my hair just the way it is.
Brooke: I would tell my younger self to carry on with all my hobbies and try more different sports and to NEVER cut my hair short because it was a BIG mistake!

If you could say one thing to your followers/readers, what would it be?   
Both: Thank you, thank you, thank you! When we first started this blog we was amazed when we hit 10 views and now we’ve just passed 500 views and have started to get some followers which is amazing. Plus all of your lovely comments make us really happy and we really appreciate it, so again thank you!

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Ellie: I would love to live in Ireland. I’ve never visited but I am in love with the accent and being an Irish dancer has made me want to go there even more.
Brooke: I think I would love to live in LA because there is so much more opportunities than where I live and the experience would be amazing! I wouldn't mind having a holiday house in Ibiza or Majorca though!

What are your plans for 2014?
Ellie: To finish my college course I am currently taking, get in to university and have a positive year!
Brooke: To finish school, get the grades I need for college and hopefully enjoy college. Also to get the figure and confidence I want!
