A Liebster!! Moi?

As mentioned in a previous post,  the lovely Charlotte – My crazy New York post-grad life has nominated me for The Liebster Award..

As far as I am aware, The Liebster Award (‘Liebster’ meaning ‘favourite’ in German apparently??) helps to get the smaller blogs out there noticed – specifically blogs with 200 or less followers. In order to officially accept this award, I am required to do the following things;

  • Thank the person who nominated me and provide a link back to their blog
  • Answer the 10 questions which have been set by the nominator
  • Spread the love for smaller blogs by nominating my favourite 10 blogs with less than 200 followers
  •  Notify the 10 people whose blogs I have nominated and set them 10 questions to answer

Firstly, a big thanks to Charlotte for nominating me! I love catching up with her blog and never get tired of hearing about her crazy adventures/dramas living in NYC. I think that on some weird level, her blog allows me to pretend I am living my dream life in the big apple (Well, It is a cheaper option than actually relocating).

Next, answering the questions set by Charlotte;

  1. If you could go back in time to any time period, when would it be and why?

I would go back to 2006 which was my last year at high school. I would experience my school formal dance all over again as well as the notorious sixth year holiday to Mallorca which was a chance for everyone to let their hair down and it brought everyone together. I wouldn’t change a thing; I would just make the most of being young and carefree again.

  1. What is your biggest fear?

I guess this would be that when you die – you just DIE! How disappointing would that be?! I prefer to think happy thoughts; that there is a ‘heaven’ where we all reunite with our loved ones, float about on fluffy clouds and live happily ever after for an eternity.

  1. What do you think is your best personal trait?

Anyone who really knows me will know that I completely dependable. I try to value all my friendships and make an effort to be there for all my friends whether it be giving them advice or listening to their problems – even if it is 4 o’clock in the morning, they know that I’m only a phone call away.

  1. Hot or cold weather?

Definitely hot hot hot! I always feel the cold no matter where I am; You could plank me on a desert in Dubai and I’d still complain about feeling the cold –  so I would always opt for a hot climate. Also, (maybe this only applies to Scotland seeing as we hardly ever see the sun) I always find that people are much happier and mellower when the sun is out.

  1. Favourite food?

I love a good curry! So much so, that every Friday night in my house is curry night! From a mild korma to a spicy Madras I love ’em all! ♥ I also have my local Indian takeaway on speed dial 😉 Sad but true!

  1. Who is your current celebrity crush?

I am still a little obsessed with HBO’s True Blood – probably because there’s sooo much guy candy in every episode! At the minute I particularly love Joe Manganiello who plays Alcide; with his rugged good looks and gorgeous brown eyes he is just thee perfect man. Uh! I’m so over Bill and Eric!

joe-manganiello

Seriously.. who wouldn’t love this face?!

     7.      What is the main philosophy by which you live your life?

I don’t have a philosophy as such. I try to do what makes me happy and avoid things that don’t. Easier said than done I know, but in the bigger scale of things I think that if you try to do what makes you happy and surround yourself with people who make you happy then you won’t go wrong.

  1. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

Easy! I would have to be a wolf so that I could run wild with Alcide in our little wolf pack 😉

  1. What is your favourite movie genre?

I love horror movies! Strangely enough, I love having the bejesus scared out of me! I can remember being in primary school and each weekend, all the girls in our class would go round to each others houses for a sleepover. We loved watching scary films – particularly Nightmare on Elm Street and the Scream movies, we would hide in our sleeping bags at the scary parts and were still terrified for hours after the film had finished – eventually someone would have to get up and put on a Disney movie just to get us back to a happy place! Ahhhhh… Disney! 😀

  1. What is your favourite part about blogging?

I think that there’s something so therapeutic about getting your thoughts and ideas out there so that other people can read them. I love pressing the publish button and waiting to see what people think about what I’ve written.

Finally, for my 10 favourite blogs which I think are deserving of this award;

Ten questions I would like to ask them;

  1. What made you start your blog?
  2. What is your greatest lifetime achievement to date and why?
  3. Who has inspired you most and why?
  4. What is your favourite book and why?
  5. Do you have a party trick and if so what is it?
  6. Who is your style icon?
  7. What is your favourite drink?
  8. If you were hosting a dinner party which three people would you invite (living or deceased) and why?
  9. If you won one million pounds on the lottery what would you do with the winnings?
  10. What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?

I’m now off to spread the love for the little blogs! ♥

Zante here I come …

Long story short – about four months ago, I entered a blogging competition in More magazine! sponsored by 18-30 holidays whereby, all I had to do was submit a blog post about my best ever clubbing holiday. The winners would receive a fully paid week’s holiday for two people to either Greece, Tenerife or Falaraki and the chance for their blog posts, tweets and photographs from the holiday to be featured in the magazine as well as on 18-30’s website etc.

To my complete surprise, I was told that I was one of the winners of the competition and would receive a week’s holiday to Zante, Greece. Sadly, a few weeks later I learned that the magazine had stopped running and I was unsure whether I would still get to go or not?

Thomas Cook have been liaising with Bauer Media and have managed to reach a happy outcome … I get to go on holiday to Zante with my friend Katy – bring on the madness!!!

I apologise in advance because in case you hadn’t noticed, I am a tad excited and will no doubt be boring you with all the details. I have already had a wee look online to try and catch the last of the summer clothes and I can confirm they are en route to my doorstep right now!! 😀

Lil’ blogs?!

Hi all,

I am on the hunt for interesting little blogs with less than 200 followers deserving of the Liebster award. I have had a look on freshly pressed etc. but can’t find many? Surely they can’t be this hard to find??

If you have a small blog or if you know of any small blogs which are a great read can you please let me know and I will check them out 🙂

Thanks!

Destination unknown…

Hi All!

Welcome to my blog!  Never thought I would hear those words, but finally, after a lot of procrastination (my favourite hobby!) I have gotten around to it and created my first little blog! Hoorah!

As it turns out, creating a blog is the easy part ……. contemplating what to include in your first ever post is the hard part!  Eeek!

So, here goes… first blog, no pressure.

Okay so a little info about me; I am a 24 year old Fashion Business graduate who has recently landed herself a job in the wonderful but slightly manic world of fashion, where as clichéd as it may sound, no two days are ever the same.

I am a self professed fashion enthusiast who enjoys nothing more than browsing the internet in search of the latest happenings in the fashion world.

As well as all the usual interests you would expect from a fashion aficionada; shopping, socialising and dreaming about what my wardrobe would be like if I won the lottery,  I also enjoy writing and have realised that this is an area where I am really out of touch. For this reason, I have started this blog and hope to dedicate a reasonable amount of time to offering an insight into my life, my interests and generally everything which inspires me. As the title of this post suggests, I don’t really know where I am going with this blog at the moment, but I know that every road leads somewhere and if I happen to attract a reader or two along the way …. fab!
