Tag That Blog - Leibster Award

Being a newbie in the world of blogging, I was interested to hear about the Leibster Award - after being tagged by my friend Jenny. (View her blog by clicking here). 

So what is the Leibster Award?

The Leibster Award is a great way for bloggers, with less than 200 followers, to get to know other bloggers and at the same time, get their blog out there to a wider audience!

The Rules...

1. Each person posts 11 facts about themselves
2. Answer the questions that the tagger has set
3. Choose people to link in your post
4. Go to their page and tell them
5. No tag backs

My Facts

1. I do not like Irn Bru, only recently tried Oreo's and have never been to Nando's (what's all the hype about?) 

2. I have an obsession over Sean Paul and literally love every. single. song. 

3. I have a fear of stingrays/jellyfish, seagulls and wasps.

4. I touched Dizzee Rascal's hand at TITP. 

5. I have been obsessed with clothes ever since my mum bought me dungarees and I wouldn't stop wearing them.

6. I have danced since I was 3 and miss it more than anything in the world. 

7. I abseiled off the Falkirk Wheel with a friend to raise money for charity.

8. I loved Art at school - Advanced Higher Art was my favourite subject!

9. I am desperate to go to Tomorrowland and have promised myself that I will go before I die. 

10. I split my head open after hitting my head off a rock at the top of Bennachie and was carried all the way down by a jogger who was terrified of blood.

11. I drove my car into a wall just months (even weeks probably) after passing my test. 

1. What is your favourite high street clothing brand?

Topshop is definitely up there in my favourites! Purely because it offers such a variety of different and quirky items. Also, because their petite section is perfect for me being short. 

Zara is another favourite, mostly because you can always count on it to have the latest trends and even if I'm just browsing it gives me inspiration for things I might want to buy. 

2. What's the most interesting thing in your handbag?

Well this depends if I'm drunk or sober... Waking up after a night out I always seem to end up with strange things in my bag such as stashes of stolen beer mats.

3. Who was your first ever style icon? 

This is tough, when I was younger I went through a stage of loving S Club 7 then I seemed to love Fred Perry, Mackenzie etc... (WHY?!) So I was really more influenced by friends at a younger age. I also used to like the Olsen Twins when I was younger too, so I guess they were style icons.  

4. Designer item you would love to own?

For me, I have always wanted a Mulberry bag. I would love a Bayswater Tote... wouldn't mind a black and gold Willow Tote too. If anyone's buying? 

5. If you could live in any past era what would it be?

I would love to have lived in the 50s and 60s mainly because of the clothes - the introduction of the mini skirt and how everything was much bolder/brighter - but also being able to witness the dancing and music back then!

6. What's one thing you wish you could do but can't?

I really want to bungee jump but I'm far too scared to do it!

7. What do you do first thing in the morning, get dressed or apply make-up?

Usually I apply my make-up first but normally I will plan my outfit before hand and then just get changed into it afterwards!

8. Favourite Perfume? 

I love the smell of 'Lady Million' but weirdly I love Britney Spears perfume!

9. Define your style in three words?

Fun, young, trend-led

10. Favourite colour to paint your nails?

I normally just paint my nails to match whatever I'm wearing but I love baby pink or any bright colours. 

11. What's your favourite item in your wardrobe?

I love my high-heel chelsea boots as they are so comfy and versatile but I think probably my leather jacket too since it's kind of a staple piece in my wardrobe. 

My Questions... 

1. How many pairs of shoes do you own?

2. If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be?

3. What key fashion item would you recommend for Autumn/Winter 2013?

4. Who is your celebrity crush?

5. What item could you not leave the house without?

6. Who is your favourite designer? 

7. What's your favourite accessory?

8. What are you most looking forward to in 2014?

9. Favourite movie?

10. Favourite clothing website?

11. Item of make-up you would recommend? 

Give it a try!
