Liebster Blog Award!

I'm so excited to be nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Becky from Coffee, Beauty and Life. My blog still feels teeny to me and the fact that people actually read it and enjoy it completely shocks me haha! The Liebster Award is a great way for bloggers with less than 200 followers to help others reach a wider audience. The rules are that after you've been nominated you post eleven facts about yourself, and then answer eleven questions asked by the blogger who nominated you. You then continue the cycle all over again by nominating more bloggers yourself and asking eleven new questions.

Here are my random facts :

1 I was vegetarian for 2 years before I started getting major cravings for chicken. I may ahve started eating meat again but being vegetarian taught me to be more adventurous with my food so now I'll eat anything apart from celery and papaya :)

2 I have 9 tattoos and 8 piercings

3 As a student midwife, I have personally delivered 18 babies and counting!

4 I am obsessed with my filofax

5 Now that it's spring I have an overwhelming urge to only ever wear black

6 My favourite flowers are daffodils, tulips and peonies

7 I am a bit of a fitness nut. I took part in Tough Mudder and am doing it again this year but for charity!  Expect some promo on that over the next couple of months :)

8 I studied psychology at uni after I finished school and I have also trained as a makeup artist.

9 Before I started high school I was able to sit on my hair.

10 My pre-requisites for when I buy my own house is that it must have a bath and space for a corner sofa in the living room.

11 Right now I am really missing being in Abu Dhabi and Dubai :(

And Becky's 11 questions for me:
1. If you could do anything in the world what would it be?
Be a qualified midwife instead of a student haha! Although I'd really love to go and tour America for a year.

2. If given the chance would you prefer to travel into the past or explore the future? 
I think I'd rather go back into the past and experience those legendary moments and decades, and see if the fifties really was amazing or if we romanticise it.

3. What's your most treasured possession and why?
This is a hard one. It would have been my dog but she sadly died last year after 16 years with us. Can't think of one unfortunately...thats a bit sad :(

4. What's your favourite drinking game and why?
21! Everyone taking part has to put some of what they are drinking into a dirty pint in the middle. It's played kind of like rock paper scissors in that after the count of three everyone puts either one or two fingers into the circle and one person starts to count clockwise around the circle. Whoevers finger(s) count 21 has to drink as many fingers as they put in of the dirty pint.  It can get pretty messy especially once you decide it's a good idea to do shots of jagermeister instead!  I love it because it simple and easy to play. Beer pong is pretty good too.

5. Which season is your favourite and why?
Probably summer because I also love winter but I get sick of the cold eventually and am desperate for heat which I never tire of :)

6. Do you prefer Christmas or Easter? 
CHRISTMAAAAS! Oh my god I am such a Christmas nut!!! The minute it's December I have my decorations up, I've even been known to play Christmas songs before it's even November which drives my family mental haha!  I just love the whole spirit of it all and love buying and making and wrpping presents for others and thinking what would make them smile :)

7. What was your favourite childhood toy and why?
I have a stuffed toy elephant/hippo type thing called Puffalump that my parents got me when I was about one and a half years old.  I had split my head open when I fell off a chair (I was big on climbing back then) and after I'd been in hospital getting my stitches taken out we went into the Jolly Giant toy shop - retro! - and my mum couldn't resist seeing me toddling along with this box that was almost the same size as me housing the aforementioned Puffalump.  I still have her but she's in the loft and I feel a pang of guilt everytime I hear the song 'When she loved me' from Toy Story 2 :(

8. What's your most guilty pleasure? 
I used to hate them but I now quite like One Direction. Actually it's not that I hate them I just find Harry's face really annoying haha!

9. Out of all your beauty products which is your favourite and why? 
This is a really hard's between my Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm because it's made such a difference to my skin, or my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush because it's the best foundation brush I've ever used.

10. At karaoke night which song do you pick and why? 
I never sing karaoke because I'm too shy haha! If I had a drink in me though it'd probably be a Little Mix song because you can have fun with it and dance about too.

11. And last but not least, why did you start writing your blog?
I just really wanted to have a creative outlet. I've never been big into art or writing but I love photography and makeup so I thought I'd give it a go.  I tried YouTube but I always felt really awkward on camera, never say never though :)

The bloggers I want to nominate are:
1 Natasha from Love And Labcoats
2 Lauren from All In Beauty
3 Ashley from Glitter Girl
4 Emily from Frankly Ms Shankly
5 Louise from Postcards From America
7 Lianne from Ruby Ruby Slippers

4 What has been your favourite concert and why?
5 If you could have any career what would you like to do?
