Better than a Golden Globe: Liebster Award

Awww the lovely Erica nominated me for a Liebster Award- thanks Erica! It's given to bloggers with 200 followers or less to help out up & coming blogs.

11 Facts About Me
  • I'm naturally blonde.
  • I get horrendously competitive at board games.
  • I love french bulldogs & hairless cats. I would love a pet but I sadly don't have any of my own- all  my pets live at my mum's house :(
  • I'd rather shop for kitchen supplies & home decor than clothes, i.e. I'm a bit of a nana.
  • I love Poirot & nature/science documentaries. Again, nana.
  • I have the WORST attention span.
  • I have moved at least once every year since I left university. It kills me every time because I HATE packing.
  • I'm really good at making roast dinners.
  • I'm obsessed with my electric blanket.
  • My eyes are two slightly different colours- one is green & one is blue, but it's hard to see without direct sunlight.
  • If all television got cancelled & all that was left was 24/7 repeats of Friends, I wouldn't be too devastated.

11 Questions Answered 
  • What is your middle name, and would you change your name if you could? Officially, I have no middle name, but unofficially it's Colleen, which is my mum's name. I would definitely not change it.
  • What was your first ever concert, and the last you went to? My first ever concert was Destiny's Child & it was amazing. The last one I went to was Laura Marling but it was AGES ago. It was amazing too.
  • What is your favourite movie, and can you recite a line from  it for us? My favourite movie is The Usual Suspects, and one of my favourite lines is the following 'Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze.'
  • Tea or coffee, and how do you take it? Coffee and usually just black, no sugar but with a little bit of cold water to make it a drinkable temperature.
  • What was the last book you read, and are you a kindle or original girl? Eek the last book I probably read was 'Room' by Emma Donoghue which was ages ago. I am currently reading Murakami's 1Q84 after buying it as soon as it came out and then putting off opening Volume 1 for ages. I always read loads in the summer & get lazy about it in winter for some reason.
  • Scrambled or poached, and with what on the side? Poached with hot buttered wholemeal toast & a generous sprinkling of Maldon sea salt.
  • Can you play an instrument, and to what level? Not one sadly.
  • What one food would you survive on forever, and can you cook it? SOUP. And yes, I frequently make my own.
  • Lindsay Lohan's best movie is Mean Girls. true or false? True, but her current offering 'Liz & Dick' is a really close second.
  • Pink is obviously the best colour, but what's the second best? Robin's egg blue.
  • Next to me, who is your favourite instagrammer, and give me their name. I don't follow a lot of people on Instagram yet but I really like @lipglossiping because she posts pictures of healthy food & her daughter is ridiculously cute.
Part of the Liebster award is to nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers too but I don't know any! The only bloggery people I know have a ridiculous amount of followers or have already recently been nominated.


  1. oooh i haven't seen liz and dick yet! x

  2. I agree, wouldn't be too ridiculously devastated if tv was cancelled! aha xo :)

    1. It's not that I don't love TV because I DO. I watch faaaar too much but I just really love Friends lol x

  3. Ooooh, I looovvvve The Usual Suspects! BUT. Before I'd seen the film, I watched one of those daft Channel 4 programmes though, called something like "100 Greatest Film Twists" or something. And obviously, The Usual Suspects was on there. So when it came to the film I was really confused, like: "But... Kevin Spacey... isn't he...?". My friends hated me. Still do. True story. Gutted xx p.s. congrats on the award!! xx

    1. Aw that's GUTTING. I watched it as a teenager before I got into the Internet really, so I had no idea what the twist was- I then watched it again immediately afterwards and saw all the little clues- so ace!. x

  4. Gasp! I know you dye your hair, but somehow I never knew you were a natural blonde!

    Congrats on the nomination. Maybe next year I'll get nominated. :D

    1. Did you not! I'm sure you knew me back before I dyed it- I guess I didn't take as many narcissistic photos then lol x

  5. I also nominated you for this award at my blog, hopefully it'll get you more of a reading audience because your blog deserves it! Serious blog love from here :)
