The Liebster Award

Hi everyone!

First I’d like to say a massive thank you to Aly (bitemebyaly.blogspot.com) and Katriona and Julie (http://katrionakinsandjuliekins.blogspot.ie) who were so kind to nominate me for the Liebster Award!

The Liebster Award is a blog award given by a blogger to another blogger with followers under 200 so it’s a chain created by bloggers and a way to discover new blogs.
Now, let’s get started!

Here are the rules:

  • Thank/link the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer the 11 questions they have written for you
  • Give 11 random facts about yourself
  • Nominate other bloggers with under 200 followers who you believe deserve the award
  • You can not nominate the person who nominated you
  • Post 11 question for your nominees to answer and be sure to let them know that they’ve been nominated

Aly’s questions:

  1. If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

Washington D.C. or Edinburgh because I’ve been in both places before and absolutely love the both of them! 

  2. Who’s your style icon?

This is a hard question since I have SO many but here’s a couple: Blake Lively, Perrie Edwards, Zendaya Coleman and Emma Watson. I like to keep updated with their style and then mix them together to create my own.

  3. Your favourite makeup brand?

For high street/drugstore makeup it would be Maybelline, but if I want to pamper myself and go to the high end section I’d say YSL or Estée Lauder. 

  4. Your favourite clothes store?

My favourite clothing store would definitely be Urban Outfitters! But since we don’t have their store in Finland (sad face) I buy most of my clothes from H&M.

  5. Why did you start a blog?

Because I needed something else to think about and I’ve been considering it for a very long time.

Graduating would be great (hah) and then I’d love to have a job that has something to do with fashion.

Get Up And Go – The Exchange

  11. What’s your guilty pleasure?
Teen Wolf. Who can resist a bit of Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Posey every once in a while 😉

Katriona and Julie’s questions:

  1. Are you a One Directioner?
Yes I am!

  2. Guys with stubble or no stubble?
It depends because for some guys it suits very and I mean VERY well, but in general I’d say no stubble.
