Liebster Award Number 2

Hello everyone!

I was recently nominated for another Liebster Award by Danielle from A Shi…pload Of Polish!

I didn’t know these were still going around as I haven’t seen them in a while, but I think they are a great idea to get to know bloggers better! If you want to see my last one then you can do so here. Those pictures of my stash are so bad quality!!

Nail Blogger Liebster Award

By accepting this award you have to:

1. Nominate 11 other bloggers, and notify them of your nomination.
2. Give 11 random facts about yourself.
3. Answer 11 questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you.
4. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer.
5. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.

And now here are the 11 questions I was asked:

1. What’s your favourite thing to do?

ย Well at the minute it’s eating healthy and keeping fit, it’s making me feel brilliant!

2. What’s your favourite season?

Summer is the most obvious answer but I LOVE Winter! I’m so excited for it this year! I love seeing snow everywhere and wearing fluffy socks, big boots and a coat <3

3. If you could live anywhere, where would you choose?

I do like the UK which is where I live now, but I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to go and live somewhere like New York or Australia.

4. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

In 10 years I will be 32, so I would probably be thinking about having children at this point and getting married etc. I’d also like to think I have made lots of money by then and done a lot of traveling and exploring of the world.

5. What superpower would you choose, and why?

That’s a tough one! Telekinesis maybe? This way you could have fun moving objects etc. but also have the powers to protect yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

6. Do you drive? If so, do you like to?

Yep, I’ve been driving for over 3 years now and no I don’t like to lol. I love it because it gets you places and it’s so much easier than relying on public transport, but the act of driving itself is not something I particularly enjoy.

7. Chocolate or cake?

Mmmm cake!

8. Why did you start your blog?

I was spending a lot of time doing my nails and teaching myself how to do acrylic and gel nails as a hobby, but it felt a bit pointless and like it wasn’t really leading to anything, so I decided to create a blog to share my interest with other people and also to help others too with my tutorials. I keep getting more and more emails off people asking for advice and it feels good to be able to help them.

9. Television, movies or books?

Books. I love reading, you get so much more information! That’s not to say I don’t enjoy watching films and series though ๐Ÿ˜€ .

10. Do you speak any other languages? What language would you love to learn?

I was teaching myself Spanish for a few months but I gradually got bored and now I think I’ve forgotten it all ๐Ÿ™ . Now I’m planning to learn Italian, I have no idea why though…

11. Day or night?

Day. I wish days lasted longer ๐Ÿ˜€ !

And now here are 11 random facts about myself:

1. I’m obsessed with The Lord of the Rings and Dragon Ball Z – I have tattoos of them both.
2. I follow the Paleo lifestyle
3. I have been with my boyfriend for 6 years
4. I have 3 fish called Aragorn, Legolas and Gandalf
5. I have a little hamster called King Kai
6. I have a 2.1 degree in Psychology but don’t plan to use it
7. I used to be obsessed with Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 and I always used to come top of my group when I played against people online
8. I love the moon. It makes me happy when I look up to the sky of a night and see that’s it’s out
9. I love learning about anything and everything. One of my favourite things to research is Space.
10. I have a big dislike of people who only want to talk about themselves, and don’t listen to other people. I wouldn’t like to end up as one of those people so I end up not talking about myself much, I’m more of a listener.
11. I have a weird obsession with Giraffes. For example, I have a 6ft wooden Giraffe in my room.

I’ve nominated the 11 people below to learn a little more about them ๐Ÿ™‚ :

1. Nail Parade!
2. Bathelen’s Nails
3. Nails Must Be Painted
4. BGPolish
5. Emma’s Space
6. Five Foot Small
7. Addicted to nails…
8. Fixin To Faff
9. Little Red Loves
10. The Sequined Nail
11. Roaring Nails

My 11 questions for you are:

1. What’s your favourite animal?
2. What is your favourite nail polish brand?
3. Is there anything you dislike about blogging?
4. What do you do to make sure you have time for your blog in the busy lives we all lead?

  1. Congratulations, very well deserved to ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    • Aw thanks so much Caroline! x

  2. OMG! I eat according to the Paleo diet too! It’s so cool to find more and more people who have to suffer like I do (just kidding…. no I’m not…. yes I am!)

    • No way! It’s great to find people who do the Paleo diet as it’s not one of the mainstream diets (yet…) – I’ve noticed the Paleo community growing though which is exciting. You should check out MarksDailyApple if you aren’t aware of it already, it has answers to everythingggg xx

      • ME THREE!! Although I’ve gone more down the “primal” route, keeping diary in the mix :D. Great Q&A’s, can’t wait to write mine up ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

        • I couldn’t have dairy even before the diet, so that’s definitely not in mine :-p I also can’t have wheat, which suddenly makes the whole thing SO much harder. And a bunch of fruits make me feel sick, so I had to find out which ones I can stand by trial and error. I have my own food schedule now of what to eat when and how much, that helps me a lot ๐Ÿ˜€ It makes me sound like a sad person LOL but I’m actually much happier this way! I used to skip meals because I didn’t know what to choose (it’s an Autism thing) but now I have 3 full meals a day and 3 snack moments. I love it!

          • Sorry to hear you can’t have wheat or dairy but I guess that makes the paleo diet easier for you as you have already cut out some of the main things ๐Ÿ™‚ it took me a long time to cut everything out because the sugar for example is just so addictive! I don’t think you sound sad, I love people who have this lifestyle and I love hearing about how good it makes people feel such as yourself :)! I’ve just mentioned it in a previous comment but my boyfriend has a paleo blog called http://www.paleocastle.com with lots of help info and funny paleo comics etc. if you’re interested xx

        • Wow really! I’m so happy to hear other nail bloggers do it too! I’m not sure where I stand on dairy really, for the most part I tend to not have it, but I love cappuccino’s too much :p ! If you’re interested my boyfriend has a Paleo blog with lots of helpful info and comics ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s called http://www.paleocastle.com hehe. Can’t wait to read your answers xx

          • Yup I’m reading it now! Tell your boyfriend thanks from me ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Of course I will :)! Hope you find some helpful information on there ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

          • Ooooh wow thanks for this! I’m going to check it out right now :).

            And it’s great that you have figured out a pattern that works amazing for you @Narmai Nan. Most people spend their whole lives trying to figure it out!

            Sorry, I’ve been a bit slow at getting mine up on the blog, I’m going for a blog-tastic weekend this weekend, and I’ll catch up, I promise! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxxx

      • I didn’t even know there was a ‘Paleo community’! I’ve only been on the diet for a little over a year. 1 year, 3 months, 2 weeks, 1 day to be exact. Yeah I have Autism too :-p It’s helped so much with my health, I was in pretty bad shape when I found a dietician who recommended it to me. Mine has a lot of other rules and restrictions added to it, to make it more suitable for me. Like, to keep my blood sugar levels steady, I have 6 set times a day at which I have to eat a certain meal or snack. The dietician determined all the portions and weights for me so all I have to do is set an alarm, weigh off the food, prepare it and then yum! I never used to eat veggies but being forced to eat them make me like them! Well… some of them :-p

        • By the way it’s great to hear that there are dieticians out there like that! Most of them recommend more grains etc. which makes me sad as people shouldn’t be eating glutenous foods like that :(! It’s also great to hear how well you are doing. I actually love vegetables so that made it easier for me :p

          • Yeah, that’s really awesome! They should introduced dietitians into schools and educate people properly! Although, by the sounds of recent articles they are still trying to determine what’s the best route. I can’t believe people still think the “fat free” stuff is okay. Sooo much sugar!

  3. Finished! ๐Ÿ˜€ You can see my reply on my blog! Thanks again for the nomination! xx

    • You’re welcome Rachel loved your post x

      • Thanks! ๐Ÿ˜€ x

  4. Hey, thanks for the nomination! ๐Ÿ™‚
    My answers to your questions are up on my blog! x

    • You’re very welcome thanks for answering the questions xD xxx

  5. HAHAH the fact about the giraffe made me laugh so hard! Super fun post to read and to get to know you better – I love that you have a hamster! They are so so cute ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for the nomination! I’ll definitely do it, but it could take me a while because I’m really bad at this kind of thing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Haha I started off liking them as a child and the obsession grew from there ๐Ÿ˜› and for Christmas most of my presents would be Giraffe related ๐Ÿ˜› lol! I’m really glad you enjoyed reading my post, I can’t wait to read yours ๐Ÿ˜€ take as long as you need :p xx

  6. OMG you are too cute! And I love the giraffe fact, too. Would love to see that! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Haha I will have to send you a picture, or I will post one on my Instagram or something :p xx
