Neon Pink, Super Powers and Being Clumsy. | Nominated for the Liebster Award!

So yesterday I got a little notification on my phone from the lovely Nicola who writes the blog The Beauty Monologue; she had nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thank you so much Nicola! Though this award might not mean very much to some of you, I personally think it is just a really nice way to welcome people into the blogging community, let them know you like and read their blog and to get to know other small bloggers. Plus, I love seeing the questions and answers we all ask and
answer! First off I want to thank Nicola for nominating me (which I realise I already did) but she has such a great blog and I urge you all to go check it out! She also mentioned in her post she designed and created the layout all herself, which is so cool and beyond anything I could do. 

1.     How many pairs of shoes do you own? 
Oh no, what a question to start with... do flip flops count as shoes? Because if we're counting flip flops I'm pretty sure I have near to 40 pairs of shoes.  That's quite embarrassing! But in my Uni room, where I'm at now I think I have around 20 pairs. But I always live in my white converse, they're just so comfy and practical!

2.     If you could ask your future self anything, what would it be? 
Are there hover boards yet? Cause I mean it's 2015 and I still don't see 'em! 

3.     If you could have one superpower what would it be? 
Oooh! I like this question... invisibility would be pretty cool or maybe just the power to be super effortless and graceful in everything I do... cause I can be pretty clumsy, I mean just writing this blog post almost saw me throw my cup of tea down myself and earlier leaving my room I managed to drop my half full cup of coffee all down the bathroom door and carpet! Skills! Right there!

4.     Do you buy any weekly/monthly magazines? 
As a teen I was obsessed with magazines! My Dad always let me get one every Saturday with the weekly shop and I always got either Sugar or Shout then over the recent years I began getting Glamour and Company but I never have time to read them anymore so I don't now. Occasionally I get ELLE Decor or Country Living as they're Interior Design related and that's what I study but no not every week.. I really miss buying Glamour! 

5.     What was the last clothing item you bought? 
Oooh this very bright neon pink shirt! I have a bit of an unassuming attraction to this colour considering I prefer more pastel and neutral tones. But yeah, recently I've been quite attracted to this shade. 

6.     What are you looking forward to most this year?
2015 is going to be pretty big and pretty scary! I'm hopefully graduating in the Summer so it's goodbye student life and hello big wide world of career and getting your act together! Yikes! That's really scary, I don't have any plans as to what I want to do, where I want to live/work yet... I'm currently just trying to get to May and complete all my work on time! I'm desperate to make it through my final year without an all nighter!

7.     Name three things you like about yourself. 
Aghk! This is such a hard question, I'm probably my own worst enemy and always talk myself down but here goes... 
Well, I think I have good taste in terms of music and fashion. I'm more often than not quite tidy, I had  a bad run last year where I became really messy and it was super stressful so I vow not to go back to that again (she say's with a massive pile of laundry waiting to be washed and an obstacle course of books to navigate around in her room!) and thirdly... I'm loyal. I'm always there for my friends and hate it when they're sad or stressed so I'll always do anything to cheer them up and help them out (but that can be a bad thing at times cause you can get taken advantage of! I've been there!)

8.     Would you rather have perfect hair, perfect teeth or perfect eyesight? 
Ohh, oh no, I'm going to over think this so much now! haha! Well my hairs quite unruly on its own so I've learnt to cope without perfect hair, the eyesight one makes me think that if I chose having perfect teeth over eyesight, my eyesight might just keep deteriorating... (definitely over thinking this) I'm going to go with perfect teeth and hope that I can still buy strong enough prescription glasses to help me see, plus think of all the different styles I could wear! (Probably the worst decision making I have ever done!)

9.     Your favourite item of clothing? 
Man! This is too hard! I absolutely love each of my clothing! I'm going to have to say my cream chiffon shirt with pink polka dot collar just cause it's so pretty and feminine and I can wear it with a sweater on top or tucked in to a skirt. It's just great for layering! 

10.  What is your most repurchased beauty product? 
Ohh this is easy, my Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara, though it is so bloomin' hard to take off it really works to add volume and length and keeps them held in shape all day! I've been using it every day since I was 18! 

11.  Link a blog post you enjoyed reading recently.
A Free People Girl's Guide to New York City I really liked reading about all the smaller things to do and search for in New York City. It is an absolutely amazing city but the things I did when I went there were pretty standard and although fun I really felt I didn't make the most of my time there. I will definitely have to tick a few of these things off when I next go. 

Ok and my nominations... I'm just going to say that I'm going to bend the rules slightly as I personally feel that I'm being a little 'spammy' when I think about letting these guys know I've nominated them. (Only my own personal opinion and I have nothing against all you guys doing it, it's just how I feel and I understand that, that might not be the whole point of this.) But instead I have chosen my favourite 11 bloggers/blogs who all have under 200 followers. They all have great blogs and they're all different so go check them out! 

And for anyone else reading and you think this is a fun and great idea to find new blogs and engage with new bloggers, then I nominate you guys and these are your questions... 

1. What's your favourite food?
2. Where in the world would you most like to travel?
3. What film or tv programme are you loving at the moment?
4. As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
5. Which celebrity's style do you most admire?
6. What's your favourite quote/ piece of advice you could share with the world?
7. You're stranded on a desert Island and can only bring one item you own. What would it be?
8. What are you currently listening to at the moment?
9. What is your one beauty product you cannot live without?
10. Tea or Coffee?
11. One thing  you are most excited about this year?

Oh, and also, the rules are...

Just that Jersey Girl


  1. That is so funny, I started my Liebster Award post a few days ago and I had saved your blog to nominate, but it looks like you've already been nominated! I really enjoy your blog. Where oh where did you find the pink shirts, because that shade of pink is beautiful?! Well if you have time and want to check out my blog please do. Gook luck in school! You've got this girl!

  2. Aww, thank you so much though! That's so sweet! I'll definitely go check out your post! :) Oh, I bought the bright pink shirt from ASOS. I really love it but it is really bright, I've tried to get as true a match to the colour as possible in the photo. And the polka dot collar one is from a store called New Look but I bought it 2 years ago. xx

  3. Though I'm a bit of a mascara junkie, I have never tried anything for max factor can you believe it?! I need to get on that band wagon because they look right up my alley!

  4. It's really good I think! And Max Factor have some other nice stuff too, their nail varnishes are really good! I'm a bit nail varnish crazy me. haha! xx
