Liebster Award

Firstly, a big thank you to the lovely Aaliyah from Eyeshadow Eyeliner for nominating me for the Liebster Award. What is the Leibster Award you might ask? Well, it's an award that is given to new blogs with fewer than 200 followers. It allows bloggers to promote there blog and meet lovely fellow bloggers along the way.

The rules for the award are the following: 

  • Nominees must link back to the person who nominated them.
  • Nominee must list 11 facts about themselves.
  • Nominee must answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated them.
  • Nominee must than choose 11 people/blogs to nominate that have less than 200 GFC followers.
  • Nominee must provide 11 questions to be answered by the people they choose to nominate.

Ok so here goes, below are 11 facts about me. I have tried to make then different to other facts I have given about myself, I don't want to rehash old info.

  1. I have only been blogging since the beginning of the year (after thinking about doing it for about 12 months).
  2. I choose not to go anywhere without makeup on - it makes me feel well presented and put together.
  3. I spent my childhood doing ballet,jazz and modern dance from ages 4 till 11 however I retained none of the skills or coordination that I learnt.
  4. I love football (soccer), watching not playing although I did play for a season a few years ago. My favourite position was the bench!
  5. I am addicted to Mexican food.
  6. I love energy drinks, Blue V is my favourite.
  7. I am a very indecisive person whether its a small or large decision. What to have for lunch at work can sometimes take a good 10 minutes of pondering.
  8. I would spend all my time in pyjamas if it were socially expectable - Peter Alexander PJ's of course.
  9. I have what has been described as quite a high pitched voice. My work colleagues say my voice gets to such a high point that only dogs can here me.
  10. I have to set 5 alarms each morning to wake me up for work because I'm a very deep sleeper and lazy when it comes to getting up.
