16th September: Liebster Award 2013.




Wow, Okay, so I was lucky enough to be nominated for two Liebster awards last week by the beautiful fashion bloggers Helen and Laura (Go and check out their blogs!)
I have recently taken on a full time job with H&M actually so I have been quite busy recently but blogging is something that I make sure I maintain a commitment too, I just needed to settle really however I'm majorly excited none the less!
Well lets get straight to this then, firstly though we have rules...

*Each nominee should answer 11 questions from the person who nominated them
*Choose 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to pass the award to and link them in your post
*Tell them about their nomination 
 *And kindly, no tag backs!


Firstly from Helen over at Raggy Doll Raggy Doll

1. How would you describe your blog in 3 words?
Minimalist, Journalistic? and Edgy maybe? Meh

2. Which other bloggers inspires you most?
I have a few that inspire me like many bloggers do but one of my all time favorite bloggers is definitely Rumi Neely from Fashion Toast. A lot of bloggers are inspired by her and I don't blame them because so am I. She's so good at what she does and she was one of the very first bloggers really... she is able to keep people interested even though she isn't particularly eccentric or crazy. She is dedicated and committed and I love that.

3. Apart from blogging what do you like to do in your spare time?
These answers are going to be so cringy because it is obvious that I love to shop in my spare time! Although I also like to read and write crime stories! I love to browse funny vine videos on youtube and watch make up tutorials . I'm also quite good at singing and tend to spend 99.9 per cent of any free moment doing that.

4. What is your dream job?
Something involved in fashion and I'm happy.. Along the lines of designing, buying or styling 

5. How long have you been blogging?
I have had this blog since 2010 but I haven't really posted frequently until recently.. I had university etc and I would use it to follow other blogs and to keep in contact with them! I now couldn't live without my blog though!

6. What are your 3 favourite brands?
Can I choose 3 higher end and 3 high street? Okay, cool... Three high end brands are easily Acne, Rag and Bone and Zadig and Voltaire. Its pretty obvious to state that I'm in to quite clean-cut, simple sort of minimal look but with edge and character.. I'm obsessed with the models for these brands in particular who are quite masculine but not at the same time, like Erin Wasson. I like the thought of looking like a pretty man.. Is that weird? I mean like, effortless and simple but rough around the edges.. Okay I'm going to sound dead weird after that.
I also love Zara, Topshop and H&M OBVIOUSLY.

7. Who is your hero?
My sister Harriet. She annoys me a lot, and can be too blunt and insensitive but I know she just cares.. she is the only person who will ever truly understand me.

8. Who is your favourite designer?
I've kind of already said?

9. What are you proud of?
My English degree and passing my driving test!

10. What is your favourite item of clothing that you own?
Oh my god, that is SO hard... I will just go with my Evil Twin electric blue fuzzy gillet... it looks awesome with everything, it honestly does.

11. Which celebrites inspire you with their style?
I love the band handsome.. They were all so lush weren't they and I have serious hair envy.. I also love love love models Erin Wasson, Ruby Aldrige and Marine Deleuw.



Then Laura's chosen questions from Smile at Style

1. What made you start your blog?
Well, I had a Myspace account that I absolutely loved to design layouts for which is odd, beings as though I now have a plain background but none the less, I enjoyed posting forums about purchases and fashion wants and covering my about me with celebrities that I loved etc etc and then my sister showed me Fashion Toast! I was so in love that I made my own Blogspot and then a few years later... 

2. If you were stranded on a dessert island with only one thing what would it be?
This is so bad of me but I would obviously say my phone.. Who wouldn't? You'd be lying if you said anything else. I'd instagram pictures of my self making sand fairies - Valid reason obvs.

3. What is your favourite item of clothing?
I've answered this but now I get to choose another because I' special ;) I would say my leather jacket! I know that is boring but it's warm, looks SICK and it also goes with everything.. simple.

4. What did you do today?
Got up at 5am, I went to work.. bought a pair of H&M Paris collection leggings on my break, they were too big, returned them.. (devastated.. ) came home, got a hot choclate and tucked in bed to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas.. Paused it to blog for a bit and will return when I have finished!) Best film ever.

5. What are your hopes for the future?
To be a success.. Its what I've always wanted. To make some kind of impact and to be happy.

6. The best memory of your childhood?
That is quite hard.. But Borth holidays with my family were the best!

7. If you could choose any celebrity to be your best friend, who would it be?
Alexa Chung because she is actually hilarious. I could also borrow her clothes and she would give me her new book for free because I was her best friend.

8. Who is your favourite blogger?
RUMI NEELY. I also like The London Lipgloss quite recently. She's a bit of a scatter brain, doesn't take herself seriously and I want her hair.

9. What is your favourite foundation?
I always always go back to YSL touche eclat at some point or other but I think that has now changed and I am now a huge fan of Estee Lauder's double wear!

10. If you could buy any item of clothing right now what would it be?
Easily 'The Amelie Biker Sweat' jacket on All Saint's website.. 188 quid though!

11. Fake tan or no fake tan?
No fake tan, I like being pale.
