Liebster Award

I've been on twitter less then a month and I have loved getting to know a community of people with the same interests and outlooks as me. I'm kicking myself because I wish I had done it sooner! I am chuffed to bits that my blog has been recognised by the lovely Annmarie over at smallbutmightyredhead,who has given me a Liebster Award. As a newbie I hadn't heard of it before and after asking her what it was, it turned out to be an opportunity to give fellow bloggers with less than 200 twitter followers a virtual pat on the back, a high five, it's a chance to say oh hey you over there, I like what your doing!

In accepting this award you can then nominated 5-11 others who you think deserve some massive kudos and after answering 11 questions from your nominator, you get to be a nosey parker and do the same.

So thanks again to Annmarie, keep up the great work and I wish you every success and happiness.

Here are the questions she asked her nominees:

1. If you could visit anywhere in the world where would you go?
This is so tough to answer because I literally want to see everything, everywhere! The top of my list would be India (this changes, I'm so fickle!)

 2. If you could choose would you be a fairy or an angel?
Fairy! Straight up Tinkerbell style. Who wouldn't love some fairy dust?!

 3. What’s your favourite chocolate bar?
 I can't eat chocolate. I do love the chocorange naked bars though!

 4. What one word best describes you?

 5. What one make up product could you not live without?
I can't answer this! I either don't wear anything or I have a whole shop full of make up on my face! probably concealer.

 6. What do you think is the best modern invention of our times? Ipad, iphone, blogs???
Internet banking/shopping

 7. What’s your favourite piece of clothing? 
I love boots. (closely followed by cute jackets)

 8. Which Disney Princess did you most relate to as a kid?
 As I kid I was brought up on Disney, I had an Ariel Barbie and a Belle Barbie. I have to chose Ariel because I could sing all the songs and I also got all the spinoff books and videos. "Under the Sea!" P.s i've always wanted to try the grey stuff in Beauty and The Beast!

 9. What’s your favourite flower?
Dahlia, it's my blog logo!

 10. What’s your idea of a perfect wedding?
I really don't know ( I'm actually not that bothered if we do or don't at the moment). If I had to think of something, it would be colourful and full of family, friends, food and dancing. It also has to be on a budget because I don't want to get in debt for one day.

 11. Would you rather be rich or beautiful? 
Both are hard to answer, as both can have all sorts of connotations. I think I would go for rich so I can provide for everyone around me and create something amazing that benefits others.

So here are my nominees! (the rules are that you have to pick a blogger with under 200 twitter followers)

Aimee/The Belle Narrative
Stephanie/She's So Eco
Lauren/My Passion Journey
Laura/Laura in Wonderland
Zauni/The Kind Side

I've picked these blogs because i wouldn't have found them without the magic of Twitter and they are all awesome.

My 11 questions:

What superpower would you have?
What did you want to be growing up?
Who was your first celebrity crush?
What was the first album you ever brought?
If you could only use either blusher or lipgloss/lipstick for the rest of your life which would it be?
Which scent brings back memories instantly?
Curry or stir fry?
Green juice or fruity smoothie?
Wake up early or sleep in until the last possible minute?
If you could do one good deed today , what would it be?
Where do you hope to see yourself in 5 years time?

Looking forward to seeing your answers!
