I've been nominated for 2 Liebster Awards :)

Hey Guys

I've been nominated for a Liebster Award not once but twice, by the lovely Becky of beckawoo and the very kind Philippa of glitter and jelly

Apparently "this little award is all about discovering new blogs and helping those with less than 200 followers to get recognised" and the rules to follow after being nominated are:

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There are no tag backs.

So here I go with the 11 things about myself:

1. I live with my boyfriend and my cat Casper.  My boyfriend's 4 year old son stays with us every other weekend <3
2. I have two younger sisters and three really close girlfriends who are like sisters to me.
3. I work in a solicitors office.
4. I LOVE painting my nails and find it very relaxing after a stressful day at work (or the Hell Hole as I normally call it!)
5. I'm 32 years old but don't feel it most of the time!
6. I can't wait to have a baby.
7. My favourite colour is purple although you could probably tell that from the name of my blog huh!
8. I have a few favourite animals, including wolves, huskies, pandas, butterflies and cats - random selection right?!?
9. My favourite shape is a star although I don't know why.
10. I love reading and am a real "bookwork".
11. I also love taking photos.

My questions from Becky are:
1. What type of music do you like? 
I like all kinds of music but especially soft rock like Bon Jovi & the Foo Fighters.
2. What's your favourite quote and why?
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” ― Marilyn Monroe - This quote means a lot to me because I've had bad relationships in the past which have made me appreciate the one I'm in now.
3. Xbox or PlayStation?  
Neither, I'd rather play games on the PC!
4. What film makes you cry the most?  
PS I Love You or The Time Traveller's Wife :'(
5. What's your NATURAL hair colour?  
6. Where do you shop the most?  
Nails Inc at the moment!!!
7. What's your day job?  
Legal Secretary
8. What do you value most in life?  
The people I care about
9. What's the craziest thing you've ever done?  
Danced on a table when drunk!
10. What is your biggest pet peeve?  
Cupboard doors being left open, even slightly really annoys me!
11. Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?  
Hmm now that would be telling!

My questions from Philippa are:   

1. Who is the one person in your life that you couldn’t live without?  
I can't narrow it down to just one. I have too many people that I need in my life.
2. What is your earliest childhood memory?  
Being on a bus with my dad having some time just the two of us.
3. Do you have any distinguishing marks, scars, or tattoos?  
Some little scars but nothing major.
4. How did you meet your best friend? 
When I first started work she already worked in the same office and took me under her wing.
5. What has changed in your life since you first started blogging?  
My uncle has become poorly! :'(
6. From whom do you draw inspiration? 
My gran. She's the strongest person I know <3
7. Which year of your life would you like to re-live and why?  
The year I was 19. My mum and dad were still together and my granddad and aunty were still alive.
8. If you were hosting a dinner party, what would be on the menu?  
Take away - I'm a rubbish cook haha
9. What is your favourite book? Tell us a little about the plot and why it means so much to you. 
The Time Traveller's Wife - it's a love story across the ages.
10. Which websites do you visit daily?  
11. If you had to throw away the rest of your makeup collection and keep only 5 items, what you keep?  
Big Lash mascara, one of my green duo eyeshadow pots (I can't remember the make of it), Heather Shimmer lipstick and two Nails Inc polishes, probably Crown Court and Baker Street.

My questions for my 11 nominees are: 

1. Why did you start blogging?

8. What is the last movie that you saw at the cinema? 
9. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
10. What do you have that is of great value to you but of no value to anyone else?
11. How far away from your birthplace do you live now?
