So, Maria at Life With Maria recently nominated me to do the Liebster award; it was very kind of her to do so. You can view her post by clicking here. The rules are simple in this sense; you think of ten or more questions, tag more bloggers with links, and ask new questions of them! So here goes..
Her questions were:
If you could date anyone famous, who would it be?
Probably Tom Hiddleston.
What’s your favourite movie?
There are so many films, meaning that I couldn’t just pic the one. I love The Devil Wears Prada-as it shows a sort of dark side to journalism; 27 Dresses, if only for the Filofax ; Funny Face, as Audrey Hepburn proves that you can be a beauty and have a brain-I picked this up from a book by Elizabeth Winder; State Of Play, because of the mix of reportage and drama, Highlander for the music, the story and emotion, Bridge Of Spies as I am a Cold War ‘nut’, and Jackie, as it’s about my hero.
Who gives you inspiration in the blogging world?
If by Bloggers, there are quite a few, such as Nicole from A Beautiful Chaos, Abbie from Abbie Chic, Gala from Gala Darling, Natalie from Gorgeous and Geeky, Katie from Country Katie UK.. The list is endless!
Where is your dream holiday destination?
The US. I would love to visit the JFK Library, the Met, the FDR library…so much to do!
Let’s talk self-care; how do you treat yourself?
To be honest, I don’t always put a lot of thought into this. I might paint my nails, use a bath bomb… very rarely.
Do you have any favourite artists (painting/illustration-wise)?
Dahli. (I think that’s how you spell it?)
What beauty products couldn’t you live without?
Hmm.. ever since I’ve left college, I’ve sort of gone over this, time and time again. I don’t wear a lot of make up any more; if I do, it’s for a special occasion. (It’s a sensory thing; I would wear it much more to try and conform at college.) That being said, I love Dr Paw Paw, the multi-purpose balm; I take it everywhere with me, and it’s not just for cosmetic purposes. I also like a Lush moisturiser (to prevent bad acne; it has cleared up a lot after I started using it), and a lip scrub by Pura, as they smell so good.
What do you fear most?
How would you tackle a hater online?
Ignore. Block. Report. Repeat.
What’s your favourite snack?
You’re asking this of a ‘foodie’; I’ll try and keep the reply quite short. I was teased a lot, and therefore nicknamed “Skittles Queen”, as I do like Skittles, but that was because I had a long day. I do like Apricots though, as well as the occasional Bacon Butty.. oh, and maybe ice-cream whilst I’m walking the dog? I also love a bowl of Strawberries.
If you could swap places with one person for the day, who would it be?
Rowan Coleman. She’s uber cool, my hero, and a best-selling author.
My questions to you are:
- What do you prefer and why: Twitter or Instagram?
- For a day at the office, what could we find in your handbag?
- What sparked the choice to begin a blog?
- Favourite vegetable?
- What do you like least about blogging?
- Lipstick or lipgloss?
- What’s your best advice for newbie blogging?
- Why is blogging important to you?
- What do you think about Blogging for business?
- Pencil or Ra-Ra skirt?
Thanks again Maria for the tag. Have a great weekend everyone,
