My Liebster Blog Award

Sunday, 3 August 2014

Hello sweethearts of the blog world, I hope you are all doing well today!

Yesterday, Sarah over at Buzz, Boots & Berries nominated me for a liebster blog award, which is basically a great way to discover new and undiscovered blogs that deserve some recognition.
As I am a born again blogger, this is a perfect way for me to hunt around for some new and potential favourite blogs to follow, and to learn about you all in the process! Maybe even make some new friends - I really have absolutely nothing to lose :)

So, my hair is up in a scrunchie, I have a cup of tea beside me, and I am ready to answer the questions that Sarah has decided to give. It gives you all a chance to learn a little more about myself, and maybe even a new topic of conversation that you'd all like me to have a little ramble about in a future post!
A big thank you to Sarah for nominating me, and now let's go, Barbie girls!


The rules are as follows:
  • You must answer all 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
  • You must link back to the person that nominated you.
  • After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers (with under 200 followers) and give them 11 questions of your choice.
  • You can not nominate the person who nominated you.
  • You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link to your post so that they can learn about it.


Q1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
This question gets me every time,because I am such a little food lover it hurts to give up anything, let alone everything. But I'd have to say roast dinners. I can't imagine living a full life without them!

Q2. What is your favorite article of clothing, current or from the past, and why?
To be honest, I'm not much of a 'clothing person'. Most of the time I am baffled by latest fashions, and my life is spent in skinny jeans and comfy tops. So yeah, I'll say skinny jeans are my winners!

Q3. What was the first album you were given/ bought?


Q4. What thing/person/item/ trend are you currently obsessing over?

One thing about my personality that I have learnt over the years is that I am a very obsessive person. Not with people, just with things that I start liking...and then liking more...and then loving, and then REALLY LOVING. So, to narrow down the list I'll note three things: Katy Perry is my one. I have been obsessing over her since 2009, and if anything it has gotten much, much worse over time. She is perfection. I'm also embarrassingly into the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood hype. I just can't stop! and thirdly, Victoria's Secret - underwear heaven!

Q5. What is your lucky number?
16. It's my birthday number & my house number! And I got a bingo ticket with 16 on the other day and won, so that confirms it, right?

Q6. Have you ever met anyone famous? Details!
Back up to my obsessions, I have met Katy Perry twice! First time was in 2009, and the second in 2013. She is literally the sweetest person in the world, making sure that everybody gets their photograph, and even politely asks the paparazzi to step aside whilst she meets her fans first. She blows me away.
I am always in close proximity to celebrities due to my job, which is definitely a challenging thing for me as I am obsessed with the celeb world. Unfortunately, as I am a member of staff, I have to act professional, so I could be in the situation where I am blessed with standing next to the biggest popstar in the world right now, yet I am technically still not meeting them as I'm not allowed to 'fangirl'. It's a hard-nut life!

Q7. If you could change your first name, what would you change it to?
My name is Laura Blake, but I'd quite like to be called Blake, which'd be a little odd due to being Blake Blake. It's just a lot prettier, I think?

Q8. What was the first thing you bought with your own money?
Oh gosh, I think it was just a top from Topshop - when it was teenage-with-no-wage affordable!

Q9. What was the last movie/ book that made you cry?
Now is Good (it's on Netflix! Worth a watch)


Q10. What website do you tend to go on the most?

Instagram... is that classed as a website?


Q11. What song perfectly describes your life?

Now  that's me done, it's time for me to nominate 11 of you lovely people out there!
  1. Paula @ Simplicity is Beauty
  2. Ellie @ Inked Hooves
  3. Rebecca @ R for Rebecca
  4. Selin @ That's What She Said
  5. Hollie @ Charming but Drunk
  6. Rachael @ Broomfie
  7. Hazel @ Hazel Jane
  8. Melissa @ Gracelift
  9. Liz @ Well Meaning Being
  10. Jess @ Sensible Reckless
  11. Vanessa @ Thoughts by Vanessa
These girls are a mixture of previous blogging friends and brand new ones that I just spent my Sunday hunting around bloglovin' for! They are a great selection, if I must say so myself.
My questions for you girls are:
  1. What was the first concert that you ever went to?
  2. What would you say is your greatest achievement so far in life?
  3. Where is the best place that you have ever travelled to?
  4. If you could have given your future self one piece of advice when you were a child, what would it have been?
  5. What is your favourite TV series?
  6. If you were given a chance to relive one day in your life, what day would it be?
  7. What is your unhealthy obsession?
  8. What is your favourite flower?
  9. If you could erase your memory to read a book again, which book would it be?
  10. Tell me about your weekend.
  11. Katy Perry or Lady Gaga?
I look forward to seeing your answers! Have a great week, guys :)
