Liebster Award Take 2

I've been nominated for the Liebster Award again! Thank you so much to Jenni from BeautyFull Spark for my nomination :)

For those that don't know, the Liebster Award is a way of recognising, and spreading the word of, your favourite new blogs. You can nominate anyone with less than 200 followers for the award.

The rules of the game are:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the 11 questions they've asked you
3. Nominate 11 new bloggers
4. Set 11 questions for your nominees

(Last time I also wrote 11 facts about myself, but I've seen lots of people miss this step out. Guess it's optional.)

Anyway, enough with the boring bit and on to Jenni's questions.

1) What is your favourite pastime?
At the moment my favourite hobby is pole fitness! I only started lessons about six months ago, but it's quickly turned into a passion and I can't wait to progress further. I've finally convinced my parents that owning a pole would be a good idea, and I'm so excited to be able to practice daily!

2) If you had to blog about something different to what you already do, what would it be?
Hmmm my blog content is already quite varied. I think I would be a food blogger. Baking, in particular!

3) What is the one thing you couldn't live without?
I'm going to have to be cheesy and say loved ones. I don't know how I'd get through life without their support.

4) What is your favourite brand? Make-up or otherwise.
People that know me well will know my answer to this. It has to be Black Milk Clothing. Two years ago I fell in love with their clothes, and I've since found the best online community there is. It's amazing how a clothing brand has allowed me to connect with the nicest people ever! (You can see my post about Black Milk Clothing here.)

5) What would your ultimate day-out be?
It would have to be a surprise day out. When I'm told what to pack, but not where we're going. And it'd be great if it was somewhere I'd not been before. I love exploring! Oooh and somewhere by the sea!

6) Who is your style icon?
Eeeep this is a hard one, since I don't really follow trends. The only person that I've found whose wardrobe closely resembles mine is Zoella (the vlogger). Cute collars and skater dresses are my favourite.

7) What is your favourite film of all time?
Another hard one, as it depends which mood I'm in. Worthy of mention are Spirited Away (by Studio Ghibli), Frozen and Finding Nemo. If I feel like I should watch a film aimed towards someone my age, I love The Green Mile (for Michael Clarke Duncan's acting) and Forrest Gump.

8) Big, bold colours or natural nudes?
In terms of make-up, natural nude (excluding nail varnish). For clothes, bold and bright as I'm so pale!

9) What is your ultimate style fail?
My ultimate style fail has to be when I was about 12 and wore an entirely pink outfit. Pink jumper, pink trousers and pink shoes. They weren't even different shades of pink. I was nicknamed 'Marshmallow' that day.

10) Do you have a fitness regime? If so, what is it?
Right now, no (excluding pole fitness once a week). However, once uni's done in a few months I've promised my mum that I'll go out running with her a couple of times a week. I'll also be practicing my pole fitness as frequently as possible, and maybe taking a few pilates lessons to improve my flexibility.

11) What is your favourite food?
Cheese. If cheese wasn't around every meal would be so much plainer!

My nominees:

My questions:

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
2. What was the inspiration for your blog name?
3. If you had to blog about something different, what would it be? (Sorry for stealing Jenni - it's a good one!)
4. What's your favourite season and why?
5. What's been your favourite holiday so far?
6. If you had to live in a different country for a year, where would it be?
7. What's your guilty pleasure?
8. Which high street shop is your favourite?
9. Do you have a bucket list? If so, what fraction have you ticked off?
10. What's one thing that you wished you were better at?
11. What's your ultimate goal in life?

And that's it! Have fun guys :)
P.S. As you may have realised, I'm currently drowning in final year uni revision. I will, however, still be updating my blog as often as possible, so please do stick around :)
