Liebster Award


Well the past couple of weeks, I've been really popular as the lovely Stefanny from WAALIX, Sam from Sabre Beauty and Alisha from Alisha Valerie nominated me for the Liebster blogging award which was super super sweet of her! If you've never heard of the Liebster award, it is an award that is given to bloggers (with I think under 200 followers) from fellow bloggers who love their blogs and to share some blogger love!

I am sure you all probably know the rules, but if not they are as follows ~ 
  • Answer the questions given by the person that nominated you
  • Share 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate up to 11 other bloggers that you love & give them 11 questions to answer

Stefanny's Questions
Who are your fashion icons?
I don't know if I really have fashion icons, it's more people who I think have a great sense of style, that being said I really love Fleur De Force and Andra Vaida style.

Why did you start a blog?
I started my blog as I wanted it to be a creative outlet for myself as well as being somewhere that student nurses or anyone else could come for a read and a little break from reality or to enhance it!

Are you superstitious?
Erm....I don't think I'd say I'm particularly superstitious (I mean come on, I have a black cat) but I don't go out of my way to walk under ladders or smash mirrors! 

What decade would you live in, if you could choose?
If it isn't present day, I would definitely want to live in the 1940's! I mean come on just the fashion alone is amazing!!

Board game or video game?
I tend to play video games more than board games, to be honest it's mainly Sims that I love playing really more than anything. If I'm honest I don't really play board games or video games a whole lot.

Describe your perfect pizza.
I'm pretty simple when it comes to pizza, yes I am that person in pizza places that just orders a plain cheese and tomato pizza! However if I could have anything on it I'd have a cheese and tomato pizza with pan fried chicken, spinach and rocket on top. It's so yummy, I love making it myself, so I guess you could say I make my perfect pizza every time I make homemade pizza.

What is the thing you are most proud of?
It has probably got to be a glowing letter that I was given from one of my patients when I was on placement during my second year. Something that makes it even more special is that the placement was at the same hospital that I've been given my first registered nurse post!

Would you like to be in a reality TV show?
Probably not, mainly because my life really isn't all that interesting!!

What is your favourite fashion piece?
At the moment my favourite fashion piece has definitely got to be the rose gold aviators that I picked up from Primark!

Can you say something in french?
Erm...it's been a REALLY long time since I last used my french, but I can just about remember some basic phrases and greetings. I really need to do some refreshers so that I can actually have a conversation with someone in french!


Sam's Questions

What makeup product is at the top of your wish list right now?
It has probably got to be the Colourpop Ultra Satin Liquid lipstick or the Kat Von D Liquid lipsticks, they are just beautiful!

What would your perfect relaxing day involve?
My perfect day would involve getting up without any alarm, chilling all day watching Netflix with a duvet on the couch with endless amounts of Pepsi Max Cherry with a Dominoes pizza and chicken nuggets for dinner, then a bubble bath and more Netflix to finish it off!!

What motto do you live by?
Snowflakes are prettier than sheep!! 

It came about in a twitter chat (I can't remember which chat and how we got to it), I just remember saying it and fell in love (people didn't believe I'd just made it up). Someone may have said it before but I've never heard of it!

Where have you not visited but would love to?
I'd love to visit Brighton, mainly because my best friend ever moved there for work and always sends me such great pictures and revels in how great it is! I am also dying to visit the lanes.

Three things you would take with you if you were stranded on a desert island?
A really good sunscreen, some rose gold sunglasses and a friend.

Favourite meal of the day?
I would have to say dinner or supper (whatever you fancy calling it), mainly because you can have anything you want, even breakfast for dinner!!

Most embarrassing moment of 2016 so far?
I actually don't think I've had an embarrassing moment this year so far....there's still the rest of 2016 yet!

Best buy of 2016?
My best buy of 2016 has got to be my Erin Condren life planner, I may have purchased it just before 2016 but it's a 2016 planner so it counts right??!

Do you have any pets?
Yep, I have a black cat and border collie who unfortunately don't get along perfectly, however they are getting better!  

Favourite thing about blogging?
Having a creative outlet and being part of an amazing community!


Alisha's Questions

What's one goal you want to do this summer time?
This summer I want to get fitter again and hopefully tone up my stomach a little bit. I feel like my stamina and my lungs have slipped, with my asthma & B12 deficiency I have to build up as even fast walking/walking up a hill can get me out of breath.

What's your favourite candle smell?
My favourite candle is definitely the Yankee Candle Christmas Cookie scent, it's sooo yummy!

What's your favourite movie?
I don't tend to have one favourite movie and I often change them out, I'm sure a bunch of you reading are the same! At the moment my favourite is The Devil Wears Prada.

Pick three people you'd love to have at your dinner table tonight?
I'd love to have Florence Nightingale as she's well Florence Nightingale, my grandmother as it's been several years since she passed away and I'd give anything to see her again and my best friend Livvy as she was one of my best friends during high school and she unfortunately passed away when we were younger. I always wished that I could I could talk to her just one more time and get one of her amazing hugs!!

What was your favourite toy as a child?
When I was younger my favourite toy was definitely the Baby Born dolls, I don't know what it was but I just loved the little girl doll and loved dressing it up. I think it might have been cause I was the only girl with two brothers.

Who are you in love with?
At the moment I am not in love with anyone (besides my family and pets). Yep, I am a single pringle!

Who is your same sex crush?
At the moment it's probably Kristen Bell or Angelina Jolie as they're both equally beautiful in their own rights!

What was your favourite subject at school and why?
My favourite subject at school was either Dance or Art, I never thought I was any good at either of them but I really enjoyed them as they were my creative outlet.

What did you want to be when you were little?
When I was little I wanted to be an actress down in the theatres in London, but I grew up and realised (thanks to constant reminders from my grandmother) that I was meant to be a nurse.

What do you believe in?
I believe in the goodness, humanity, kindness and love in everyone!

What TV show are you addicted to at the moment?
I am addicted to watching Breakout Kings (super interesting!) and Jane The Virgin, unfortunately Netflix have only got the first season so I cannot wait for the second season to come online so I can binge watch it all!!
