Liebster Award

Hey there everybody. I was very kindly nominated for the Liebster Award by Britt of Lizzie and Jane! I think I've been nominated for this a couple of times in the past, but for some reason never quite got round to actually participating. That's all changing with this post.

About the Liebster Award:
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. Bloggers are nominated by other bloggers as a way to network and recognize newcomers to the blogging world!

1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger who nominated you gave you.
3. Ask 11 new questions for your nominees to answer.
4. Nominate 11 more bloggers with less than 200 followers.
5. Let each blogger you've nominated know that you have chosen him or her for the award.
6. Thank the blogger who nominated you and put a link back to his or her blog in your post.

11 Facts About Me:
1. I'm English, born and raised.
2. I'll be turning 18 in April this year.
3. I'm a little bit obsessed with the TV show Doctor Who.
4. I will (hopefully) begin studying Computer Science at university in September.
5. I have a love for pastel colours.
6. I am most definitely a dog person.
7. I have phobias of spiders and small spaces.
8. I speak a bit of French and German.
9. My top bucket list items are to travel around Europe, get a book published, and learn how to cook.
10. When I was little I used to make pretend magazines with my fashion designs in them!
11. I don't have a middle name - I wish I did.

Questions From Brittany:
1. Do you prefer coffee or tea?
Neither. I'll have a hot chocolate if I need a warm drink!
2. What is your favorite place you've ever visited and why?
Disney World, Florida. Need I say more?! It was so much fun, I'm lucky enough to be going there again later on this year.
3. Who is your favorite designer or style icon?
It's difficult to choose just one! I suppose my ultimate style icon would be Audrey Hepburn, she was the epitome of class.
4. Would you choose a beach or mountain vacation and why?
Beach. I'm a chilled out kind of girl, not a mountain climber.
5. What are three items that you have in your bag at all times?
My phone, my house keys and my purse.
6. What is your favorite quote and why?
"Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there." It's a good reminder that if you want your life to turn out a certain way, you have to take action - you can't simply let life pass you by and expect everything to fall into place. It's something we all need to be reminded of sometimes.
7. Do you have a signature item? If so, what is it? (piece of jewelry, color, bag, etc.)
I have a little owl coin purse that I usually take with me in my bag. I've never seen anybody else with one like it!
8. How would you describe your personal style in three words?
Casual, comfortable, chic.
9. Who is your favorite author or the most influential book you've read?
Animal Farm and 1984 by George Orwell were interesting reads. I'm a sucker for good dystopian fiction.
10. What motivated or inspired you to start your blog?
I've always loved writing and have wanted to start a blog for ages, and I've always loved fashion, and once the two came together in my head I knew I just had to! I've really enjoyed my blogging experience so far.
11. What do you think is the most important thing to remember about blogging?
Do it because you enjoy it - don't blog for anybody other than yourself.
