The Liebster Award


Well this is very exciting! When i came home from a rather shitty day at work yesterday ( getting an unjustified bollocking off my boss, driving from Hull to Cleethorpes and working until 10pm...yeah it was a bad day all round ) i was quite intrigued by a comment that was left on one of my recent blog posts. It was from a girl called Beth from http://doodleanddaydream.blogspot.co.uk/

She said that she had nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award which is incredibly kind of her so thankyou very much Beth! Go and have a nosey at her blog go on go go go !! 

Basically the word Liebster is German for dearest/sweetest/valued/lovely and all similar adjectives. It's a way for bloggers with less than 200 followers to be noticed in the blogging world, quite a good opportunity actually so hats off to whoever thought of it. 

So here’s how it works:
1. Link the blogger who nominated you in your post
2. Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with less than 200 followers)
4. Create your own set of 11 questions to ask your nominees
5. Let them know you nominated them!


My Questions!
1. What made you start blogging?

I actually had a blog a long time ago but i became a mum, had a job and life was pretty manic so i had to give it up. But i have got back into blogging because i love to share. Wether it is my personal experiences, reviews, advice...i love it all.
 
2. What's the best advice you've ever been given?

' When life throws you lemons, make lemonade '. It's an old saying but it's a good one
 
3. What's your favourite quote?

 Carpe Diem which means ' Sieze the day '. I have this as a tattoo and it's something i live by. If you don't grab an opportunity when it is right infront of you, you will live to regret it. 

4. What's your favourite thing in your wardrobe at the moment?

It's not a clothing item but i keep shoes in my wardrobe and my favourite thing in there is my personalised Converse that Carl got me for Christmas. They are amazing! I should blog about them really.
 
5. What do you hope to achieve in 2014?

Have another baby and leave my job. You have no idea how much i hate my job
 
6. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

New York. Carl isn't really hung up on the idea but me and Sarah really want to go there
 
7. What's your favourite book?

Unfortunately i am either too busy or too tired to read books but at the minute i am reading Ripleys Believe it or not and Karl Pilkington The Moaning Of Life
 
8. If there was a zombie apocolypse, what would be your choice of weapon?

Goes without saying it would have to be the Peacekeeper. For those not in the know, it's the gun i use on Call Of Duty so that would suit me just fine.
 
9. Any advice for new bloggers?

Don't copy other blogs, no one likes a copycat. Be yourself and just write what you want to write. Swear, say things that are random do what you want. The blog is about you and what you like
 
10. What song is your guilty pleasure?

Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac. I have a soft spot for Fleetwood Mac and find their music very relaxing. I'm really into my dance music but everyone needs to mellow at. It's a good song for when you're driving too.

11. What made you smile today? 

My daughter this morning when i woke her up for school. She always makes me laugh first things because she's a heavy sleeper and looks all dishevelled when she wakes up

    2. I have a question :) I have been nominated by another lovely blogger after yours. Should I prepare 2 posts, reply your questions seperately, and prepare two sets of 11-questions? Or should I only prepare 1 post based on your nomination? I really have no idea what to do so if you know, pls advice:)

    3. 2 nominations? Girl you're on fire! Haha. Erm ok this is a bit tricky but i would say to write just the one post and mention us both, do our questions seperately but only do 1 lot of your own questions. Take a bow chick, next you'll have an Oscar nomination :D
