Liebster Award

So before I started writing this post I had never heard of this award, but I was nominated by the lovely Mehar (Miss Singh) and found out about this amazing blogger award that encourages connection and support between bloggers. It also helps support and discover new upcoming bloggers.



Like anything there are a couple of rules to this award:


  • Link the person that nominates you
  • Answer the questions from the person that nominated you (usually about 11 questions)
  • Nominate 11 other blogs (under 200 followers)
  • Create another 11 questions for them to answer
  • Tell these bloggers of their nomination!
1 ~ What is one beauty product you can't live without?
The only beauty product that I couldn't honestly live without would have to be mascara, even if I'm running errands or just running the gym I always seem to find the time to put on mascara. I used to do a full face of makeup any time I just left the house and as I've gotten older, I've learnt to love my face and now feel comfortable going out in public with just mascara on.

2 ~ What is your favourite store to shop at?
At the moment my favourite shop has definitely been Monsoon Accessorize (a slight cheat cause they are two stores but they are one company, so that counts right?), it's like Aladdin's cave of treasures and your always guaranteed to come out with something even if you just go in to look!

3 ~ What is your favourite type of candy or chocolate?
My favourite chocolate is the Cadburys marvellous jelly popping candy shells chocolate bars. They brought a range of these chocolate bars out that have all different bits of candy mixed into the chocolate (definitely worth checking out!), this one has little mini smarties, popping candy and little jelly sweets inside.

4 ~ If you could live in one place in the world, where would you live?
I would really like to live in a place like New York, I've never personally been but it's always been my dream to go. I've seen people's blog posts and vlogs from going and have just loved everything I've seen .

5 ~ When did you start your blog and why?
I started up by blog in August 2014 just before I started my second year of my nursing degree. During my second year I have been a mentor for first year student nurses and it has been mentioned to me that they wished the advice I was giving should be available to everyone to see. I also noticed that whilst there are plenty of fashion, beauty, lifestyle, fitness and health blogs there were barely any student nurse ones with most of them being from outside the UK. I decided to create Student2StaffNurse as an outlet that features everything from completing a nursing degree in the UK to fashion, beauty, lifestyle, health and fitness. Simply I wanted somewhere that student nurses could go to take a break.

6 ~ Three things you have learnt in 2014
1- I'm not a superwoman, I tend to just say yes to everything and pile everything on my plate without giving myself a break.
2- Sometimes drama is just drama and you have to just pull up your big girls pants and get over it! 
3- Life is as bad as you make it, when you have a negative outlook on life and your choices you start to see negativity in every aspect of your life. Think and act positively and the world seems so much brighter 

7~ Where did you go on your last vacation? Any planned in the future?
My last vacation was to Bulgaria about 4/5 years ago, I am currently trying to save up some money for my next holiday. I don't often go abroad on holiday because I am so busy and never take time off. I am trying to put some money aside as I really want to go to New York next year when I graduate as a little celebration type holiday! 

8 ~ What are three of your favourite TV shows?
In typical medical fashion some of my favourite TV shows are Casualty (primarily a UK TV show) about all sorts of things that arise in an A&E department. Call the Midwife is another medical based show as you probably guessed about midwives in the 1950 in London's east end. My last show that I've recently gotten into and begun watching from the beginning is Gossip Girl as fashion alone as well as Blake Lively and Leighton Meester is all that really needs to be said doesn't it?!

9 ~ What is your favourite mascara?
My current favourite mascara is the Maybelline Great Lash Big Lash, it's £4.99 so it's an absolute bargain! This is an all time favourite with tons of people and it was thanks to my lovely friend Keely's recommendation that I picked this up and I am definitely in love!

10 ~ How do you relax yourself after a stressful day?
After a long stressful day I honestly find the best thing to do is to have a nice hot shower and then to just relax with a face mask on watching TV, lately I've been watching sex and the city and gossip girl when I need to relax and wind down.

11 ~ Who inspires you the most?
People may say this is really corny or cliche but I think of two people that inspires me and gives me a push on days when I don't feel like it or if I have a down day. The first one is my best friend Liv who unfortunately passed away 4 years ago. She was just simply amazing, she was able to brighten your day and make you laugh not matter what the problem was! She was my best friend for 7 years and it's still hard now 4 years later being without my best friend. She gives me the inspiration to just go for things and to stop overthinking things and just go for it! The second person that inspires me is actually a group of people, they are my patients (see cliche I know!), I have seen patients who have lost several limbs, suffered life-altering injuries, massive heart attacks, suffered brain injuries, stroke, dementia and have still managed to life their life to their full potential which inspires me because if they can do this and live their life to the full potential with any problems they've suffered, why can't I when I don't even have half the problems they do! 



So the 11 blogs I nominate are:

Now it's time for my 11 questions for all you!

9 ~ If you could say anything to your teen self, what would you say?
