The Liebster Award is an award set up by bloggers, and the aim of it is to raise awareness of smaller blogs that have maybe not been blogging for long and to help them to get more discovered! If you have been nominated, you have to participate in a small Q&A, and then create your own set of questions, and nominate a few other small blogs to do the same.
I have been kindly nominated by Nicola, which is very sweet as I have only been blogging for about a month. Here are my answers to her questions:
What motivated you to start a blog?
I have been watching beauty guru's on youtube for around two years since I started to really get into makeup and I really wanted to try it out for myself but I just don't have the confidence to upload videos of myself for the world to see. So my solution to this was, to start a blog. I love photography and design anyway (I'm a Graphic Design student) so it was the perfect alternative as I get to do all the things I love in one place!
If you won the lottery, what's the first thing you would do?
I guess it depends how much money we're talking, but if it was a lot, I would definitely book a holiday, after this stressful year at uni, I could really do with one! I would probably go to Venice as I really want to go there!
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I really wanted to be an Architect, I'm technically not far from that as I've gone into Graphic Design and Illustration, I've loved art for as long as I can remember.
What is the hardest thing you have ever done?
Probably moving out. I come from a background of home education and I've always been really close to my family, so when I started uni two years ago and made the decision to move out, it was really difficult! But it was also the best decision I ever made, I made some amazing friends and really became more independent.
If you could witness any past or future event what would it be?
I would like to see my future wedding, if I have one, I'd love to see who I end up getting married to!
If you could be really good at anything, what would it be?
I think it would be acting, I absolutely love Rom Coms and I would love nothing more than to actually get to film one!
What is your favourite sound?
The sound of Jack Barakat's voice, I love him. Or just the band All Time Low in general.
If you were reincarnated as an animal, what would it be?
A dog, as pets they get treated so well and get so spoilt, so definitely a dog.
What was the last film, tv show or book that made you cry?
This is really hard, I get upset at things but I never cry at them! I'll say The Fault in Our Stars because it was the last film that made me sad.
What one piece of advice would you give to your younger self?
To take more risks and do things even if I felt uncomfortable. I would be much more confident than I am now if I had!
