liebster award!

Libester award

Even though I’ve had my blog for a good few months now, I still feel like quite a newbie to all this, perhaps documented by the fact that one of my nominations for this award ended up in my spam filter a while ago and I was none the wiser until today! (Must check spam more often.) In fact, I was lucky enough to receive two nominations for the Liebster Award, by The Picky Gourmet and Jenna’s Universal Advice so I would like to say a big thank you to both of you 🙂 

I love it when people do posts like this as it’s a great way to discover other bloggers, and as I’m meant to be revising for university exams this sounded like the perfect procrastination to me! I also love to hear a bit more about the people that I follow because I’m just rather nosey. Here are the rules of the award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Copy and paste the Liebster Award badge to your post.
  3. Nominate 10 new bloggers.
  4. Answer the 10 questions the person who nominated you asked you.
  5. Create 10 new questions to ask the bloggers you nominate.
  6. Notify the bloggers you have nominated by leaving them a comment on their blog.

Here are my nominees (some are just people I have started following recently/not that new but hope you won’t mind!):

  1. Olga Alexandra 
  2. Cars & Cooking
  3. Alifya Lifestyle
  4. Sunny Kitty
  5. Sophie Laetitia 
  6. Katy’s Inspirations
  7. Becky’s Biscuit Bases
  8. The Part Time Vegetarian
  9. Erin’s Eats
  10. The Happiest Pixel


  1. What made you decide to start your blog? When I started my second year at uni I had to cook for myself so I thought it would be fun to build up an online recipe book (of sorts) on my blog, and I also enjoy writing and taking photos
  2. What’s the best vacation you ever took? Last summer I went travelling across France, Spain and Italy with my boyfriend which was really fun
  3. What movie could you watch over and over again? I am and always will be in love with The Sound of Music
  4. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? I’d love to visit New Zealand as I have family over there but flights are so expensive
  5. If you could be anyone for a day who would it be and why? I would be Emilia Clarke (from Game of Thrones), she seems like a lovely person and I bet she gets to do all sorts of fun things. I feel like I would suit that blonde wig too 😉
  6. What is your favourite song? My favourite song changes all the time but at the moment I’m loving Alt-J’s ‘Bloodflood pt. II’
  7. What is your favourite thing to talk about when blogging? Food!
  8. What is your favourite animal and why? I have a cat so I think I would have to say her, although I  would LOVE to have a micro-pig as a pet as they’re so intelligent and cute
  9. What is your favourite thing to cook or bake? I love to bake brownies as they are so versatile – you can add chocolate/fruit/nuts and really experiment with them
  10. What is the best book you have read? I always seem to love the latest book I have read but I would say ‘The Help’ by Kathryn Stockett is up there with my faves


Here are my questions!

  1. If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
  2. What’s your favourite type of cuisine?
  3. What’s your guilty pleasure?
  4. What’s your dream job?
  5. What’s your favourite hobby (apart from blogging!)?
  6. Who is your motivation?
  7. What three items would you take on a desert island with you?
  8. If you had to move abroad, where would you choose to live?
  9. What is your favourite thing about yourself?
  10. What will always cheer you up?


To my nominees: don’t feel at all obliged to respond if you don’t want to, but if you have time I’d love to hear your answers to my questions 🙂
