The Liebster Award!

Get to know me!

I am delighted to say that I have been tagged 3 times to do the Liebster Award for small blogs with less than 200 followers - thank you to Deonne, Grace and Anna for tagging me! Seeing as I've been tagged by 3 different people, I'll be answering a lot of questions and repeating myself slightly, so by the end of this post you'll all get A*s on the About Jane exam :) 

Here are the rules:

1) Each person must post 11 things about themselves
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, plus create 11 questions to be answered by those you have tagged.
3) Choose 11 bloggers and link them in your post
4) Go on their page and tell them you have awarded them the tag
5) Remember, not tag backs!

Here are the questions that Deonne set for me:

1) why did you start you blog?
I love reading blogs and watching YouTube videos and thought I'd give it a go myself! Also, I love writing and always used to make pretend magazines when I was little and in a way, I find it kind of similar to blogging!

2) What is your favourite blog and why?
I have so many favourites, I couldn't pick one! Some of my favourites are Jodie Olivia, Sprinkle Of GlitterFashion RushDanielle's Closet, and LOADS more!

3) What is your favourite thing to do besides blogging?
Listening to music and just joking around with my friends and family

4) If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Jacket potatoes!

5) A boring one - what's your favourite colour?

6) What is your favourite type of post to read?
Fashion posts and ones just about life and travelling

Outfit of the days and ones where I talk about places I've been too and show the photos I've taken :)

8) What is your favourite clothing shop?

9) What is your favourite make up brand?
Hmmm, this is a hard one... maybe Maybelline and Soap & Glory's make up range is pretty good :)

10) What is your skincare regime?
I use a face wash and I moisturise everyday, as well as that I exfoliate my face a couple of times a week

11) What would you describe your personal style as?
Wow, this is tricky! I guess a lot of the time I like wearing collared shirts, so kind of preppy, but also, I like to think that sometimes I go for an "urban bohemian" look, but that just sounds hilariously ridiculous so that's this question done! ;)

Here's the questions Grace set for me:

1) What is your favourite food type?
I love pasta and potato so maybe carbohydrates, however I love cake and sweets too!

A vintage locket my parents bought me a couple of years ago

4) Who is your girl crush?
Miley Cyrus! Her style is amazing :)

5) If your fire alarm went off what would be the one material item you would risk grabbing?
omg this is tough! Maybe my laptop, or my camera, do they count as material items?! Or maybe my satchel...  arghhh I don't know!

6) What is your favourite accent?
I'm not too sure... the New York accent is pretty cool

A beautifully cut, real leather jacket
