The Liebster Blog Award

So apparently there's a new version of chain mail for blogs. It's called the Liebster Award!

I was nominated for this award by the lovely Jaime from Hard Crimson and I had no idea what it was. I did some research, but came to inconclusive results. Basically, you get nominated, you answer 11 questions, post 11 facts about yourself, and tag some new nominees and write 11 questions for them to answer.

Simple. Normally I don't buy into these chain mail type things - reminds me of those texts or emails you used to get saying 'if you don't send this to 10 friends you will get pickles in your burger next time you ask for no pickles' or something equally as horrible.

Alas, here I am answering some silly questions because... well, I feel like I'm back on myspace in the early 2000's answering those silly quizzes that were so popular! Ahh, nostalgia!

Here are Jaime's Questions 

1. What's something you've always wanted to do, but have been afraid to do?
I've always wanted to make macarons but I've been way too scared to try them after hearing how difficult they are to master, so I'm learning how to make them in Canada! I will be a macaron 'pro' by the end of this year, I promise! Fear no more!

 2. What's your go-to statement piece?
Bandanas for casual outfits, most definitely. Especially good for bad hair days, and for keeping your hair in place while dancing or baking! Also, this custom necklace by Lucy Luxxe for less casual situations.

3. How many languages can you speak, and what are they?
Just one, unfortunately. Languages have always been something that’s never really stuck with me.

4. What song are you playing on repeat right now?
It's good to be alive by Imelda May. Watch the video clip - it's so cute!

5. Do you listen to vinyl/own a record player? Why or why not?
I have a number of records and love to listen to them, however I do not own a record player simply because I haven’t been able to afford one. It’s very disappointing but I hope to have a wonderful record collection one day!

6. What's the best present you've ever received?
The best present I’ve ever received was for my 12th birthday when after years and years of begging, my parents finally surprised me with a pet bunny!

7. Do you have any unexpected or random talents?
I wasn’t really sure how to answer this question so I checked with my best friend and he said “You’re good at packing tents back in their bags at 4am”. So I guess there’s that!

8. Do you have any tattoos or piercings? 
I’m rather boring and only have my ears pierced. I am notoriously indecisive and cannot bare the thought of something permanently being on my skin!

9. If you could live in the universe of any movie or book, which one would you choose?
I've thought about this a lot and sadly keep coming back to my favourite movie of all time, Grease. It's super dooper lame and cliche, but if I could permanently live between the 'born to hand-jive' scene and the scenes in the diner, I would be forever happy.

10. Share a favorite quote.
"I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

 This quote continually gives me the strength to make changes in my life to get to where I want to be.

11. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I knew I would be soon heading on an adventure of a lifetime and wanted a place to record my adventures, and share them with those who have supported my journey so far. I hope to inspire others to chase their own dreams.

11 facts about me

  1. I am rather addicted to instagram
  2. I hate hot drinks. I like to pretend to be "cool", writing in coffee shops, but the whole illusion is ruined because I'm usually nursing an apple juice instead of a latte. 
  3. Disneyland is my most favourite place in the whole wide world.
  4. I've been subscribed to online cake decorating classes with some big named cake decorators for over a year. I am yet to watch a single tutorial.
  5. I am extremely clumsy. I am generally covered in bruises from walking into walls, tables, door frames. I have cut myself in basically every cake decorating class I've attended. 
  6. Speaking of cake decorating classes, I am notoriously extremely far behind in every class I do. Strangely, I am then usually one of the first to finish. I am still unsure at which point I catch up.
  7. I have a slight case of low blood pressure and cannot function without a lot of salt in my diet.
  8. I am scared of the ocean, and sort of water in general. Don't try to get me on a boat.
  9. I can dance like a crazy person all night long to 60's music, but only 60's music. 
  10. I nearly always carry a pen with me no matter where I'm going. 
  11. I have a fur baby named Lexi who is the naughtiest Samoyed in the world, but I love her to pieces anyway.
My fur baby - Lexi the Samoyed!
