Liebster Blog Award

I was kindly nominated for the Liebster Award by Abbie from Kittens In Top Hats. So Thanks Abbie! I would love it if you checked out her super cute blog (HERE)! She writes lovely beauty and fashion posts.

When Abbie told me that she had nominated me, I was excited - but I had no idea what that meant or what the Liebster Award even was, aha. After a little bit of Googling I found out! Basically, the Liebster Award is a way for new bloggers within the blogging community to be recognised, and help them build up to a larger audience. Since I am quite new to the blogging world, I thought that this was a great idea!

The Rules of the Liebster Award are:
  1. You nominate someone with less than 200 followers. 
  2. You must then put the logo somewhere in the post and on your blog so others know you've been nominated. 
  3. Write 11 facts about yourself
  4. Answer the 11 questions the blogger who nominated you set for you to answer.
  5. Also link the blogger who nominated you. 
  6. Nominate 11 other bloggers.
  7. Finally, you must write 11 questions for the nominees to answer. 
11 (Very Random) Facts About Me:
  1. Fall & Winter are my absolute favourite times of the year. I just love the colder weather, snuggling up in big comfy sweaters, drinking hot drinks from Starbucks (Peppermint Mochas are THE BEST), watching the leaves change & the snow fall.
  2. Taylor Swift is my love. I've seen her in concert 3 times, and waited outside for 9 hours on a very cold day in November to see her at MuchMusic back in November 2010. I LOVE her, and I can't stand when people hate on her. It makes me sad.
  3. If it's not country music, or in the top 4o charts, the chances that I'll tolerate listening to it are very low. 
  4. There is something about the way a banjo sounds.. I can't explain it, but it gets me - every. single. time.
  5. Legally Blonde & The Titanic are my two favourite movies, I could probably rehearse the whole movie to you, because I've seen them so many times.
  6. I have been a Figure Skater since I was two years old, but I recently gave it up because I came to university.
  7. I desperately want to go to law school and become the next Elle Woods (.. Legally Blonde reference, hehe)
  8. I am dying to go to Europe - specifically Paris and London!
  9. I have a crazy obsession with the Union Jack.
  10. I can put Ketchup on anything... including cheese.. (Don't Judge Me... It's Delicious!)
  11. I want a teacup pig.. seriously though.
