If you're like me, then you'll enjoy spending your Sundays browsing Bloglovin, coming across new blogs and spending hours reading posts you don't even know how you ended up on. That's why when I was recently contacted by the lovely Nicole from inthelifeofnm asking if I'd like to be nominated for the Liebster Award; I was happy to accept.

 (For those who don't know, the Liebster Award is a way of recognising and promoting new bloggers) 

I'd seen this tag before on a few blogs so was flattered when Nicole contacted me. Take a look at inthelifeofnm here if you haven't already; Nicole posts every Tuesday and Saturday and her blog is stunning. Thanks for the nomination!!

11 Random Facts about Me
Pizza is my all time favourite food. Anyone mentions Dominos and I'm there. 
Gossip Girl ignited my love for NYC.
I first heard of MAC when I was in Year 9 & my sister bought some false eyelashes. (Obviously this resulted in me stealing them #littlesisperks ....and my friends cat eating them. Ooops)
A caramel macchiato is my Starbucks drink of choice.
I own 11 nude lipsticks.
I've been told I remind someone of Louise from Bob's Burgers.
Tesco is my happy place.
I would spend everyday at home with my dog if I could.
I've had the same pair of hair extensions for 4 years. Totally gross, I know, but I only wear them occasionally for thickness. Still gross though.
I still play candy crush, soda saga. Cringe.
I own 8 pairs of black jeans.

11 Q's from Nicole
What do enjoy the most about blogging?
Getting my thoughts out there! I used to hoard so many makeup products and having my own corner of the internet to show others if I think the £20 lipstick is worth it, is my favourite part. (Oh, and speaking with fellow bloggers - but that's a no-brainer)

What is your favourite blog and why? It has been for years! The passion Victoria has for what she does shines through and have you seen that layout??!! #bloggoals haha

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In my first home with my boyfriend driving my dream car... definitely! I'm hoping I'll be lucky enough to incorporate blogging into a job, or become a content exec for a company!

If you were given the chance to visit any place in the world, where would you go?

I would say NYC, but I'm off there in August *types this with cheesy grin on face* Sooo, I'll go with LA. Ooooh yeah.
What is your favourite trait about yourself?
This might seem strange, but my eyebrow hair grows back really quick. This means I can reshape my brows all the time! That's a bonus, right?

Who or what keeps you motivated to blog?
Definitely Victoria, from InTheFrow, again. I think she's the answer to a couple of these Q's because her blog was the first one I properly become engrossed in and I've seen her grow and grow over the years. The passion she has for her own blog is so motivating. She really is an inspiration.

What is your most happiest memory?
Probably going to Haggerston Castle with the whole family when I was a younger and my uncle getting told off for leaving his stinking shoes in the caravan instead of outside. FLASHBACK: my sister pushing me in the pond with swans on the same trip. (FYI I was about 10.)

What is your most prized possession?
My dog!!! Does that count?
Can you speak any other languages? If not, which language would you like to learn?
I can't! I don't really have a desire to learn another language either (does that make me boring?) I do like the Spanish language though!

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Listening to really old cheesy songs and singing them at the top of my lungs on the way to work. Shout out to Miss Teeq circa 2003. If you know, you know.

What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
Pfffft. I'm not really a spontaneous kind of girl - I wish I was! Uhm, maybe getting on stage with Jason Derulo?
