I have kindly been nominated for a Liebster Award (second time, lucky me) by the lovely Lipstick and Laughter. Thank you Deija! You can read her brilliant post here :).
I love the Liebster Award because it encourages bloggers to engage with and talk about newer, smaller bloggers. I found that this award really helped me benefit from traffic from larger bloggers and get a bit more integrated in the blogosphere!
I really like writing posts like this, answering the questions is fun and I always get a giggle from reading other bloggers’ posts. My first Liebster award post is available for you lucky lot to read here!
1. Why did you start your blog?
I started blogging because I remember looking for a make up tutorial online and finding Tanya Burr’s channel and blog. I loved how chatty and informal it was and it felt like I was talking to her in a room! I wanted to share something like that and writing/reading/creative stuff has always been a passion of mine.
2. Where is your favorite place in the world?
Hmm, this is a tricky question. I’ve travelled before for holidays but I’ve never actually been travelling etc. Somewhere I’ve been but I don’t remember much is Goa in India. We went as a family when I was four years old so although I remember very little I just know that if I could be transported there with a click of a finger I’d be very happy indeed! If you aren’t sure why, google it please :).
3. What is your favorite animal?
When I was younger I had two favourite animals. I always used to do projects on them at school and used to draw them and find out facts about them from an ENCYCLOPAEDIA. Yep. No internet in them days. Well, not as a regular thing. I used to love dolphins and field mice. Not necessarily together, but they were my favourite animals. I guess that hasn’t changed much either!
4. Who is your biggest inspiration in life?
My mum. She’s the strongest, kindest and funniest person and I love her very much.
5. Pancakes or Waffles?
6. What is your biggest achievement thus far?
My biggest achievement thus far in my career has been graduating from university and getting into a job where I have had steady progression for almost 4 years now. It made me realise that there is a lot that I can do and that I am prepared to work hard to do it. My biggest achievement BLOG wise happened recently actually. I was actually approached by a brand to work with them and get some samples sent to me. This was so exciting as I hadn’t had to apply for anything, THEY found ME and that shows that I must be doing something right.
7. What is one beauty product that you cannot live without?
Mascara! It instantly makes you awake :).
8. What is your dream job?
Funny you should ask that really, as it’s this! I think that blogging is so exciting and really satisfying when people comment/like/double tap on instagram, makes me smile!
9. What is your biggest accomplishment to date?
Hmm, I think this is kinda similar to question 6 so I’d probably chuck that blog one in this slot *grabs it and throws*…
10. If someone was interested in becoming a blogger what would your key tips be?
My tips would be the following:
- Make sure you are on all social media and blog circulating sites
- Don’t put too much pressure on yourself
- Make sure your contact details and addresses/links etc are correct and up to date
- Have some fun!
