The Liebster Award

Saturday, 19 January 2013

I'd like to thank Leah for nominating me for this award, it's lovely to know people read my blog enough to want to know a little more about me!!

The Rules:
1. List 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you
3. Ask new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 9 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
6. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.

11 Facts About Myself:
1.  I'm at university studying Journalism and Politics.
2. I have had 15 piercings.
3. I have a hamster called Oscar, he's like a tiny, affectionate dog!
4. I have kept a journal since I was 9 years old.
5. I think I may have anxiety but I'm too scared to go to the doctors about it? Can anyone help me with some advice on this perhaps? It's not random, it's triggered by certain (irrational) things and situations.
6. One of the only personality traits I am proud of that has never caused me any problems is how driven I am.
7. I literally love  to write. As in it's all I want to do, all the time. It's always been an escape for me and I feel like when you're writing, anything goes. You can make up the rules and the ending and the angle of the story. You have total control, and it can spread so much happiness and inspire people to huge levels.
8. I really hate how dependent I feel I am on social networks, and even more so, how dependent society is becoming on social networks. But I can't stop. It's a love hate relationship.
9. I seriously struggle to walk into a shopping centre and come out empty handed. As in, it never happens.
10. I have a twisted, dark obsession with stationary. Paperchase is my haven.
11. I have 3 passports. British, American and Brazilian.

11 Questions from Leah: 
1. What was the first blog you followed? Zoella's
2. Who is your favourite designer? Vera Wang, purely because I am such a hopeless romantic and the wedding dresses are just... phenomenal. 
3. What is your most prized possession? My dog. He's a Rhodesian Ridgeback, called Zaki, and my best friend.
4. Who is your style icon? I don't think I really have one. I take bit's and pieces from certain celebrities, Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, but mostly I get my inspiration from blogs. So I guess you guys are my fashspiration :) 
5. Describe your style in 3 words. Sometimes Slightly Inappropriate. 
6. Which do you prefer, day or night? Sunny summer days but cosy winter nights.
7. Favourite trend of 2012? Studs
8. Top 3 fashion retailers? Topshop, Missguided and Primark.
9. What's your favourite colour to wear? Black
10. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Brooklyn, NY. As soon as I can convince the boyfriend, and get him a visa, that's where I want to be. 
11. What is your dream Job? A novelist and columnist for a fashion magazine. 

My 11 Questions:

(Up until the first 9!)

  1. This was fun--thanks for sharing!!
    As far as the anxiety--I have some myself.The doctors tried to give me therapy and meds for it, but that is NOT my preferred route.
    I did "self-therapy" and used writing to express my feelings and by reading over what I had written, was able to trace the source of my anxiety. And as you're a writer yourself, this may work for you as well. Once I found the source, the anxiety pretty much vanished! And when it occurs I know how to deal with it.
    I also set aside 10 minutes every day to meditate. Good luck!

    1. Yeah I've been to the doctors for mental related issues in the past and didn't like the medication at all, if anything it probably messed me up more!! I already know what the source of my anxiety is, but it still pops up and no matter how irrational I know I'm being I can't stop!!
      I might try meditating actually, it's quite an appealing thought!
      Thankyou :) xx
