The Liebster Awards


All over Twitter recently I've seen tweets and conversations about the Liebster Award, and had no idea what it was all about! Then today I got a tweet from the lovely Nicola at Love Little Poppins who has amazingly nominated myself and my little blog!

I loved reading through her post and think the award is such a great idea. It's given out by other bloggers so it feels much more personal (I love the blogging community so much haha). This in turn helps promote other bloggers, and at the same time promotes yourself as well, how great it that! I've posted the rules below to give more information on the awards:
  • Promote the person who has nominated you and link them in your post.
  • Answer the questions given to you by your nominee, and then create a new of questions for your nominees to answer (11 each).
  • Nominate your own 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award
  • Inform them that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.
Now we all know more about it, here are my answers to the questions from Nicola:

Why did you decide to start blogging?
I've been making videos on YouTube since I was 27 weeks pregnant as I loved documenting everything about it. Then as I got more into it I found KerryMarie3 and saw she had her own blog. I started reading more and more and realised I would love to do it myself!

What is your dream job?
Since I was little I wanted to be an air hostess, which is pretty weird considering I used to get awful travel sickness haha. I think I loved the idea of travelling to all these places and meeting loads of different people. But now I think about it, I don't think I could leave Jack and Indiana to do it now!

What is the one thing you couldn't live without?
Sounds pretty pathetic but my phone. It's pretty much glued to my hand at all times haha. It has everything though, my connection to the outside world with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and then obviously blogs. I can contact people, and I'm forever taking pictures/videos of Indiana on it. It's my life basically haha.

Describe yourself in five words.
Awesome, cute, beautiful, apparently funny, and smelly - courtesy of Jack hahaha!

If you could swap places with anyone for a day, who would it be and why?
Ooh, this is actually a really tough question! I'd probably say someone cool like Channing Tatum: I've always wanted to know what it would be like to be a guy, and he's a pretty hot one to be haha! He's pretty famous too, so I'd love to see whether it is actually as glamorous as people think. Oh and I really wish I could dance haha.

What makes you laugh?
Quite a few things, I'm quite simple really haha. Sometimes Indiana just has to make a funny face and she's got me giggling!

If you could give your teenage self a piece of advice, what would it be?
Don't care what anyone else thinks. I was always worried I wasn't in the 'cool' group. But looking back I couldn't care less! I had an amazing group of friends, and by caring more about my work I'm still proud of the grades I achieved.

If you had to choose: starter or dessert?
Dessert. Pretty simple choice!

If you could only use one makeup item for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Erm... I don't actually know! I pretty rarely wear makeup, and have never been bothered by it. Couldn't live without my Nivea moisturiser though, damn having dry skin!

Who/what inspires you?
My mum. She's pretty much super woman in my eyes! She's had 7 children (all without any pain relief I must add haha), and raised us all into pretty decent people I'd say! All without making any fuss and just getting on with it, even when we where little madams haha!

Tell us something about yourself that we may not already know.
I'm a massive geek! I love playing videos games and pretty much spent my whole childhood playing The Sims. I actually enjoy watching Jack play PlayStation when it's something I enjoy haha, it's weird I know! I'd also much rather watch Star Trek (the newer films I must add) or Lord Of The Rings than a cheesy rom-com on most occasions!


  1. Loved your answers Hun! Can totally relate to all of them - especially the love of The Sims! Is it sad I have it on my iPad now? Hehe. Xx

    1. Nope because we had it too haha, along with the simpsons one too! xx

  2. So glad this was the first post I came to, I found you via the blogging mums club on Facebook! Love that your mum inspires you, I'm sure little Indiana will feel that way about you too one day :)

    1. Aww thank you! I thought I recognised your face (not that I've been stalking you haha!). Thanks, I really hope so :) xx

  3. thank you for the nomination i will do mine today at some point xx
