liebster award

last december i took part in the sunshine award (which follows a similar set up to the liebster award) and answered a bunch of questions about myself, so when emily from the design disciple nominated me to take part in the liebster award, i thought it'd be nice to again answer some questions with some more up to date answers, but also because recently i've followed a bunch of bloggers who have less than 200 followers who i feel deserve a little bit more recognition.

  1. You have to link back to the person that nominated you.
  2. Write 11 facts about yourself.
  3. You must answer all 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you. 
  4. After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers and give them 11 questions of your choice.  
  5. You must not nominate the person who nominated you.  
  6. You must let your nominees know that they have been nominate and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.
  1. first and foremost, i am a self confessed sloth enthusiast.
  2. i undertook a two week placement at hallmark earlier this summer and loved it!
  3. i'll have graduated from university a year from now and am already freaking out about it. 
  4. my dad lives in germany and i get to go visit him every summer to drink beer and see sloths.
  5. i am terrified of being old, and the fact that i can now clearly remember events that took place 10 years ago unsettles me greatly.  
  6. i'm a complete klutz, my most recent accident being yet another scalpel blade injury.
  7. i'm a dog person through and through, but lately i feel that a cat is necessary around my house for research purposes. aren't animals just fascinating to watch?!
  8. carrying on the animal theme, i have a massive soft spot for pigeons and hate that people hate them. perhaps it's linked to my grandad owning racing pigeons? 
  9. i've come to realise that i'm either tremendously productive or incredibly lazy; an in between does not seem to exist for me.
  10. mexican food is the one; burritos, fajitas, enchiladas, give them all to me.
  11. lastly, if i picture anything in my future, it's two miniture ginger poodles; a boy named cecil and a girl named cinnamon!


1. What got you into blogging?
in late 2012 ashleigh contacted me regarding a blog illustration, which then prompted other bloggers to contact me, and from there i decided it might be useful to start my own blog for my illustration work, and then throughout the next year my blog grew into what it is today!

2. Which blogs/bloggers inspire you most?
i wouldn't really say any bloggers particularly 'inspire' me, but my all time favourite blogger has to be lily melrose. as of late, i've also really been enjoying reading the blogs of zoe and andini.

3. If you could only shop in 1 store for the rest of your life where would it be?
can i have one shop for different purposes? for example, in terms of clothing i'd probably opt for primark, for beauty and skincare i'd choose superdrug, and for food i am most definitely an aldi girl through and through!

4. What is your most recent purchase?
i was a tad naughty last thursday and treated myself to a topshop sale skirt and some makeup revolution bits and pieces that i of course needed...

5. What is your 'holy grail' beauty product?
as a product in general, most definitely a decent mascara! i think if i had to choose just one product to wear to face the world, longer, fuller eyelashes would see me through. 

6. What is your dream job?
my dream job would be to be a full time sloth sitter (duh,) but if we're being more realistic, i think i could write my life off as a success if i could make a living through illustrating.  

7. What is your guilty pleasure?
sometimes i like to drive around alone with one direction on full blast, singing as though no one can see me. so, er, that, i guess...  

8. What is the last film you watched?
i went to see the fault in our stars with a friend at the cinema, and i'm afraid i just didn't get the hype. what exactly is so spectacular about the romance between hazel and augustus?! although i did like the brief grouplove appearance on the soundtrack! 

9. How would other people describe you (one word)?
people often tell me that i'm extremely laid back, although i'm still not sure whether that's a positive or a negative. 

10. What do you find to be the most difficult about blogging?
i personally don't think that there's anything i find difficult about blogging, but i think it's probably because i don't have any expectations for my blog; i simply share what i'm liking/loathing/thinking/feeling because it's nice to have an outlet! although i guess if i had to choose one thing it'd be blog photography because i suck with a camera. 

11. How would you describe your style?
a bit of this, a bit of that. i don't think i really subscribe to any one trend or style, but i'd like to think that i'm pretty confident with wearing most things provided that i think they look flattering on my size and shape, which is probably why you'll mostly spot me in high waisted, floaty items more often than not. so provided an item fits flatteringly, i don't usually have any qualms about new colours/patterns etc. and am normally happy to at least give new things a go!


  1. you're told you have one year left to live, what is your dying wish?
  2. what's your favourite social media platform and why? 
  3. what's your favourite kind of blog to read?
  4. what was your favourite picture book as a child?
  5. you wake up in a zombie apocalypse, what do you do? 
  6. what would you do if money wasn't an issue? 
  7. do you feel you've changed as a person since starting your blog? 
  8. based on what you now know, what would you tell your younger self? 
  9. in your eyes, what contributes more to happiness: love or money?
  10. what motivates and inspires you in life?
  11. to end on a less heavy note, what's your favourite high street shop?
and there we have it! sorry if some questions of mine seem a little heavy, but i find it interesting to know more about bloggers than simply what their favourite brand of makeup is – normally i can find that out by simply just reading their blog! – and i personally prefer to answer questions that make me stop and think a little, so i've tried to keep my questions as interesting as my brain could possibly manage! thanks again to emily for nominating me, and i look forward to reading some of my nominees' answers in the near future :)
