Leibster Blog Award!

Yesterday I could not believe it when I received a comment on my latest post from KAYLALISCIOUS saying that she had nominated me for the Leibster Blog Award. If your another blogger you'll understand how amazing it feels to get recognition for your blog, I myself didn't understand how much work a blog takes until I started one myself!

 The Leibster Blog Award is basically a way to get newer bloggers more recognition. It works like this, each Blogger who is nominated must nominate another 11 bloggers with under 200 followers, then they must link back to them and include them in a blog post similar to this one, but on their own blog. This way, they're readers can visit these blogs and so the blogs visited gain more readers! I know that might sound a bit complicated.

Here are the rules:

1) You have to link back to the person that nominated you.

2) You must answer the 11 Leibster questions given to you by the person who nominated you.

3) You have to nominate another 11 bloggers who have under 200 followers (I'm going off under 200 followers on GFC cause that seems to be the most important in blogging).

4) You have to come up with 11 other questions for your nominees.

5) You have to go to their blogs and notify them that you've nominated them (I was notified by comment so that's what I'm going to do).

6) Some bloggers can also include 11 random facts about themselves but its up to you whether you want to do that or not.

Kayla's Questions:

1) When you were younger, what did you want to be when you were older?

I always wanted to be an Actor/Singer/Dancer, the whole performing arts industry fascinated me. But I think I grew out of that cause I'm now aiming for other careers.

2) If you could have any pair of shoes in the world, what would they be?

In terms of style of shoe, I love boots! But in terms of brand, I'd probably say Christian Louboutin. I know It's a brand a lot of people (who can afford it) tend to wear, but I think the shoes are so unique and unlike regular footwear sold on the high street. That's why I don't wear what everyone else is wearing because I don't like wearing clothes that don't stand out. That's kind of why I don't really wear most trends.

3) What is your favourite shop to buy clothes at?

Probably TK Maxx. They have such a diverse range of products including accessories. clothes, beauty products and more. You can find so much in there and its all a bargain cause its all discounted designer clothes/products. I haven't been there in a while though as I've become obsessed with Zara :D

4) What's is one place you would like to visit?

I would love to visit Australia. It looks absolutely incredible! I'd like to visit places like Sydney and Melbourne but anywhere in Australia would be amazing. I was thinking that I might try and travel around Australia on one of those gap years (I think that's what its called) where you take a year out to go travelling.
I'd probably go to some other places as well :)

5) Do you have any phobias/ fears? If so, what are they?

Yes. Snakes. I can't even think about them cause it makes me uncomfortable.

6) What is your favourite lipstick (brand/ colour) & why?

I don't wear lipstick so I can't answer that :D

7) If you could be any celebrity, who would you be and why?

Lady Gaga. Even though I'm a guy, I think she is the most amazing person in the world. She is such a brave person and has not only changed millions of lives but saved them as well. I saw a YouTube video where some of her fans sent in videos of why they love her. It really shows the effect she has had and I can't tell you how much I love and admire her.

8) What would you buy with (£/$) 1 million?

I'd probably use some it to start a charity of my own. I'd use some of it to get a nice house somewhere. I wouldn't want a big house but somewhere nice. I'd also save some for nice holidays, Christmases as well as friends and families birthdays.

9) Where is your favourite holiday destination?

I haven't been to many places on holiday but my favourite would have to be Devon. My family and I spent some time down there with my Cousins, Grandad and Aunt and Uncle. It was really peaceful and I loved it.

10) If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?

A Koala Bear. I think they're so cute.

11) What is the best book you have ever read?

The White Queen. They've made a TV series of it and its currently showing on BBC 1 every Sunday at 9. I love the TV series and the book is just as good.

11 Random Facts About Me!

1) I auditioned for Britain's Got Talent.

2) I hate watching reality TV shows. The people on them annoy me so much.

3) I have just over 8 months left of high school.

4) I'm a cat and dog person, I suppose I'm a cog person :D

5) My favourite breed of cat is Ragdolls.

6) I was born and still live in England and have never been to London.

7) My favourite YouTubers are Tanya Burr, Jim Chapman and Fleur DeForce.

8) I love eating smoked salmon.

9) I love travelling, even if it's just a long car journey to somewhere I've never been before.

10) I did my work experience at Boots.

11) I'm really bad at Geography.
