A big thanks to Alex Ure from allurescent for nominating my blog for the Liebster Award!
The Liebster Award acts as a great way for newer, up and coming bloggers to meet other bloggers and gain a bigger audience. After answering a series of 11 questions concocted by the nominater, the nominee then has to nominate 11 other blogs of their choice (with less than 200 followers) and ask their own set of questions to those bloggers, with no tag backs.
1: Who would you most like to meet in the fashion world?
I would love to meet Mary Portas. I love her attitude and style!
2: Soundtrack to your life?
This is a tough one! I'll go with a mix of Avril Lavigne songs!
3: What’s your most embarrassing nickname?
I don't think I have any, thankfully!
4: Stripes or polka dots?
I like both, but when it comes to fashion, stripes are so versatile. I love monochrome stripes!
5: Where are the top 3 places you would like to travel to?
I would love to go on a road trip all around America. I would love to visit the city of love, Paris. I would also love to visit Japan, particularly Tokyo for their crazy, fun fashion and interesting culture.
6: Do you believe in ghosts?
Yes, I do. Although never having any prominent ghostly experiences of my own, I have a strong interest in the paranormal and love watching shows like Most Haunted, who are due to make a comeback soon!
7: What do you want to achieve by the end of this year?
My wedding is next May, so I would love to have all the wedding plans and details completed by the end of the year.
8: Black and white or colour?
Black and white! I love neutral tones over bright colours. Black and white is so classic and elegant. I adore black and white photography.
9: Which is more important to you; career, relationship or money.
In life, relationships will always come first for me. I am very lucky to have such a great family and amazing future husband! Even with a dream job and endless money, I could never be happy without my family and friends in my life.
10: What do you want to get out of blogging?
I already get happiness from blogging as I enjoy it very much! I would like to give people inspiration from my blog posts and I would love to start collaborating with brands in the future.
11: Biggest style icon?
I don't really have just one style icon. I admire people with style and these include but are not limited to: Victoria Beckham, Cheryl Cole, Fearne Cotton, Nicole Richie and Reese Witherspoon.

10. Linda @ A Mumma's Time Out

My questions for those bloggers are as follows:

2. Which high street shop is your favourite?
3. What is your favourite piece of fashion that you own?
4. Where do you see yourself in five years time?
5. When did you first start blogging and what do you feel you have achieved since then?
