Carlyle Style - thank you very much to her! I didn't know much about this until I read her post, but it seems like a really nice way to get to know more new bloggers and find out a bit more about people!
The rules are:
- Thank and link the person who nominated you.
- Answer the questions given by the nominator.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and link them.
- Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
- Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.
So firstly I will answer Shannon's questions:
Why did you start blogging?
I love to write and I'd been reading other blogs for ages. I'd think of ideas for blog posts, but I didn't have a blog so I eventually got round to starting one! It's great to be writing again as I don't really get to write in my job and it's one of my favourite things to do.
Who is your idol?
This is a really difficult question and I'm sure most people would say celebrities that they aspire to be like, however I would have to say that my idol is my sister. She has severe learning difficulties and has been through much/goes through so much every day yet she always stays happy and strong. She puts everything into perspective for me.
Who is your favourite blogger?
This is another difficult question as I love to read so many different blogs, but at the moment I love Hannah Gale. Her posts are interesting and about the things I love and she writes in such an effortlessly hilarious way - I think I laugh out loud at every post, it's very refreshing to read a blog like this.
Where was your best holiday?
In 2009, which was my summer between sixth form and university, 11 of us went to Barcelona for just over a week - Barcelona is an amazing place, sun holiday and city break in one - and we had such a fun time because we knew it would probably be our last holiday all together.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Who knows? I don't have a 5 year plan, I take each day as it comes!
What is your dream job?
I recently visited the Harry Potter Studios and it confirmed my dream to be a film make-up artist! I'd love to learn prosthetics and all that jazz. I'd also love to write for Glamour Magazine. Completely out there dreams include acting and showjumping professionally - ha!
Heels or trainers?
Trainers! My heels probably come out twice a year!
What is your favourite place to shop?
I'm completely loyal to Topshop, although I do cheat on it with H&M if they do similar things for cheaper!
Salad or fast food?
I'd love to say salad, but...fast food.
What is your favourite film?
I could watch Where the Wild Things Are every day.
What is your favourite season?
Summer for sure! Get me some sunnnn!
Now I nominate:
Kate from My So Called Life
Chelle from Destination 22
Sarah from She Enhances
Charlotte from The Homely Chic
Jacklyn from JACKLYNV
Sarah from Sarah Scribbles
When She Writes
OK big fail, I know that's only 7 people but these were the only blogs that I actually read with under 200 followers that hadn't already been nominated and I didn't see the point in nominating blogs that I've never read before just for the sake of it! Also apologies to any of the above if you do actually have more than 200 followers, I went off Bloglovin' rather than Google!
My questions for you are:
- What is your favourite type of blog post to read?
- What's your idea of a perfect night in?
- Where is your favourite place?
- If you could only choose one item to keep out of all your belongings what would it be?
- Sunshine or snow?
- What's your favourite meal?
- Which three people would you choose to be stranded on a desert island with?
- Where do you get your inspiration for blog posts from?
- What's your favourite book?
- What is your favourite blog post you have ever written and why?
- One weird fact about yourself?
Again a big thank you to Shannon for the nomination :)
