Liebster Award

This week I was nominated by Sophie Jones, found at for the Liebster Award. Unfortunately, with this award there are no prizes or shinny medals, but it is a great way to for bloggers to discover new or upandcoming blogs. There are a couple of rules to follow once you have been nominated which I will briefly explain. 

Firstly you are required to acknowledge the person who nominated you for the award, as I have done above. Secondly you are to state 11 facts about yourself which can be as boring or exciting as you like. When someone nominates you for the Liebster award they will leave 11 questions for you to answer about yourself on their blog post. Finally you should nominate 11 blogs for the Liebester award which have 200 followers or less and leave them 11 questions for them to answer.

So here are 11 facts about myself;

1. I have two jobs. I am a waitress at the Treasurer's House in York which is a National Trust property, and I also work for Benefit Cosmetics at Boots as a beauty assistant.

2. I have a History and American Studies degree and studied at Keele University

3. To achieve a duel honours degree I had to write two dissertations

7. One day I would love to be a published writer

8.  I love watching anything to do with crime, murder, police detectives, prisons ect

9. My Grandad lives in California and my mum was born in America so I am technically half American.

10. I love reading books mostly historical fiction. 

11. My boyfriend is in a great new band called Everlate which you can find more about at

Here are the 11 questions that were left for me to answer;

1)Where is your favourite place you have been?

I know it sounds sad but I think that my favourite place I have ever been was Harry Potter world in Orlando. When I walked over the bridge and saw Hogwarts I honestly could have cried it looked so amazing! I couldn't stop grinning as we walked past Hagrid's hut through to Hogsmead and bought a wand from Olivander's, drank some butterbeer in the Hogs Head and ate a chocolate frog. It was the perfect day :) 

2)How many Lipsticks do you own?

Far too many and in tones of different colours for me to even count!

3)What is your favourite colour?

I love the colour pink, any shade or tone.

4)If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

I really enjoy living in York, but I guess California would be great, I just don't know if it would ever be plausible.

5)What's your speciality dish?

Pasta salad and fajitas, I am a pro!

6)Do you love or hate carbs?


7)What is your go to make up item?

Mascara without a doubt, Benefit's They're Real is a must.

8)Are you a early bird or a night owl?

Night Owl, I hate leaving my bed in the morning.

9)Eye liner or lip liner?

Eye liner.

10)What's your favourite make up brand?
