Liebster Award #5

I'm so gutted that these got buried in my drafts, as they are so much fun to do! But finally, here we have my responses to the Liebster Award! This time I was nominated by Julie from My Wilderness and Gemma from Cream Tea and Rose Jam.  Thank you for nominating me! Go check them out, they are lovely ladies!

So I'm going to split my nominations into two parts, starting with my nomination from Gemma!

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, dearest. Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs. 

The Liebster Award Rules:

  • You must link back to the person who nominated you.
  • You must state 11 random facts about yourself.
  • You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
  • You must pick 10 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.
  • You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
  • You must go to their blogs and notify them.
Eleven random facts about me

1. I'm an aspiring actress, and I've done various projects in short film, feature film, TV, adverts and on the stage.  

2. I'm obsessed with CSI, NCIS, Law and Order and The Mentalist. This is partly my mum's fault, as she loves it too!

3. I used to be allergic to peanuts, but I was luckily enough to grow out of the allergy when I was 5. 

4. My middle name is Susan.

5. This summer I want to go to America.

6. I love travelling. When I go on holiday, I try and discover little gems that not many people know about. 

7. I love the colour blue.

8. I have freak moments of OCD-like behaviour, and I get really into it! Stand in the way of me putting my enormous collection of books into alphabetical author order, or colour-coding my nail varnishes and there will be consequences. 

9. I used to have hair down to my knees. When I was younger I hated having it cut, and as I never got split ends, we just let it grow!

10. I live in a little town that looks like a town out of Midsummer Murders, but it is in fact on the Metropolitan line! I can get into London in 30 minutes minimum.

11. Photography is my guilty pleasure, I got Canon 550D for my A-level photography and haven't looked back since! And he's called Banquo. No judging. I love the name see, its from one of my favourite plays (Macbeth) and it'd be cruel to call my kid that! So the camera got the name! 

Gemma's Questions

1. What do you hope to gain from blogging?
To share my love for fashion, beauty and life with my readers! It's also my escape from everyday life.

Being part of the community and meeting new people. You meet people who share your interests and love the same things. The support you get too is amazing; everyone is so friendly!

9. How would you describe your clothing style?
