It’s just coming up to a year since I was first nominated for the Liebster award. Back then I think I had about 20 or so followers, a couple of comments and a real drive to make my blog better. I’ve grown so much since then. I am nearing my first goal of 100 followers, I get heaps of comments which I am total in awe over, I love conversations with you all! Plus I’ve been nominated again! Twice!
So here’s Take Two. Liebster award squared.
For those new to the award here are the rules:
1 | Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog in the post.
2 | Answer the questions asked by the person who nominated you.
3 | Nominate 5-11 bloggers that you feel deserve the award (Typically those with less than 1000 followers)
4 | Create a list of new questions for your nominees to answer.
5 | Once post is published, let your nominees know they have been nominated and link them to your post.

Let’s meet the two lovely’s who nominated me!
First is my new bae Adrienne. I met Adrienne through twitter, we both realized we watch the same TV shows and now just rant to each other in fangirl language about ‘The 100’ haha. Good times. Her blog beyond the exterior is centered around fashion with hints of her lifestyle mixed in! Go check her out!
1 | What’s your favourite part about the blogging community?
I’m gonna be mushy and say how welcoming everyone is. I haven’t had some one make me feel left out yet! And it’s been two years! Good start I think, I have seen bad parts of the community. But the friends I have made via blogging are the best I could‘ve asked for. Yes I haven’t met you all IRL but I can talk to openly and not worry about being judged. You’re there when I need you! *heart eyes* Also the broadness of the community. You can find blogs about anything. So you’re never short of choice and can find what you want when you need it!
2 | What is your dream career?
I don’t know what specifically. I just know I would want a creative aspect to it and not be stuck at a desk 24/7. I love organizing peoples lives, I want travel and hold events so all those mixed together maybe a celebrity manager haha Can I be the Sammy to a Shay Mitchell? ;P
Others from childhood dreams would be, marine biologist, fashion designer, actor/singer, artist, architect and a interior designer. Not that I am trained for that just kid/teenager me thought I would be the best at them haha!
3 | Would you consider blogging full time?
Yes. Not in the see-able future though. That said I won’t cross it off the list entirely. I love blogging so much. I love the drive I have towards it, the creative aspect of it and the skills that come with it.
4 | If you had to choose one brand of make-up and one brand of clothing to wear for the rest of your life, which brands would you choose and why?
For make-up I would try something I cannot afford, like Urban Decay or MAC haha. Clothing wise, half my closet is Dotti anyway so most likely them! If I was to have a cheat answer ASOS then you get all brands under one roof. ;P
5 | Are there any beauty, hair and fashion trends you’re looking forward to?
Winter is coming up ATM so I’m looking forward to coats! Not really a trend but winter fashion gets me excited! Bring on coats, boats and layers please.
6 | Do you like binge watching Netflix? If so, what are you currently watching?
I’m a fangirl so this is a duh! Australian Netflix hardly gets anything so the shows that I have binge watched on there specifically are; Orphan Black, The 100, Shadowhunters, Orange is the new black and Gossip Girl. I’m sure there are others but I can’t remember haha!
7 | Name a couple of you hobbies besides blogging or name something you’re interested in learning.
Does reading count as a hobby? If so that‘s number one. I roller-blade/ice skate and draw. I can’t think of any others! How sad. From the top of my head I’d like to learn French, garden, design clothes and interiors and play the drums.
9 | What are the last 5 songs you listened to?
I’m listening to Tom Rosenthal on spotify non-stop at this moment in time. His songs perfectly blend into each other so I can’t say what ones I’ve listened to haha! Let’s just say his life’s work. I’m addicted! I’ll also say I listened to Lush Life by Zara Larsson as I love dancing to it as well 🙂
10 | Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s the oddest/weirdest/silliest thing on that list?
I have bucket list I keep in my head. I should probably start writing these things down. As for weird things I want to do I have no clue! Odd things happen to me all the time though so I’m sure once I start checking off my list it will become strange and wonderful!
– – – – –
Secondly is the fab Kate! I gravitated towards Kate as she is a fellow Aussie blogger and we are so hard to find! haha. Her blog katey adventures is a lifestyle blog where she talks about her adventures (hence the name), with mixes of beauty, favourites and playlists! Give her a look!
1 | What’s the one place you really want to travel to?
At the moment New Zealand. Only because my trip was moved till next year and I am desperate to go! I have so many places I really want to travel to though I couldn’t keep it to just one. Paris, Italy, New York, Greece, I could go on and on!
2 | What’s your favourite book you’ve ever read?
Easy; The Night Circus. You’ll find out more in the book tag I do soon haha.
3 | What’s your favourite blog post that you’ve written?
I have two that I’ve recently written that I love.One for photos one for text. I’m super happy with how the photos for my latest #ootd turned out! For writing I loved writing my valentines day post on learning to love yourself! I opened up a lot more, it was a post I had to be brave for and push myself to post. But I was happy I did! I had positive feedback so I am happy I pushed myself out of my comfort zone!
4 | Do people ever mistake you for being younger or older than you actually are?
Not that I know of. Let’s hope if they do it’s younger due to looks and older due to maturity ;P
5 | What’s your biggest pet peeve?
I probably have heaps but I feel like a pet peeve only comes to mind when it happens there and then haha! I guess when dad leaves a knife with Vegemite on it in the sink, customers who take their bad days out on you, people who sit right next to you on the bus, crushing you and when there‘s seats left. Okay looks like I could think of a lot haha ;P
6 | What’s your go-to outfit at the moment?
This will probably change now that it is getting colder, but recently I’ve been chucking on my black midi skirt, a white & navy blue striped midriff top and a nice pair of sandals!
7 | Share with us a blogger you’ve recently discovered and are really liking.
Going to share sisters because that counts right? They are related so technically I can get away with it haha Noor from Noor‘s Place and Areeba from Not your type of blog. Just two overly creative, insightful and lovely people.
8 | Coffee or tea?
Neither. I dislike both. I’m more of a hot chocolate type of gal.
9 | Are you more of a morning or evening person?
I was a morning person. Until I got the night shifts at work then I magically turned into a night owl. I’d rather be a morning person so I could use more of a day but I find myself sleeping in till 9-10 most mornings! Very late compared to my 7am natural wake ups I used to have haha. Now I’m up till 11pm-1am blogging whoops!
10 | If you could meet anyone and spend a day with them, who would it be?
Real or fictional? Real the list would go on! My blogger friends, celebrities. Seeing as Supanova is coming and I’m still sad about missing out on traveling to Melbourne for Tyler Hoechlin I’d spend a day with him to make up for not meeting him. Fictional I’d choose his character Derek Hale and I would treat him for a day so he realized how amazing he is and that he needs a break and that he is loved by me and his to be boyfriend Stiles. Yes I would spend the day making sure they were together by the end of it hahaha
Or my all time favourite cheat answer. I would spend the day with the Doctor. That way we could travel through time and space in the same day. Problem solved!
11 | What’s your favourite song at the moment?
It’s Ok – Tom Rosenthal I’ve been listening to him to concentrate lately. Also while walking his music style makes it a tad more magical.
