Liebster Award

This morning I woke up to a fab surprise of the lovely Zara from http://zarakate.blogspot.ie/ (check out her blog!!) nominating me for the Liebster Award. This was such a lovely surprise because as you know I have not long since started my blog, and so this was very very exciting! So thank you very much Zara!

The rules are as followed : 
  • You must answer all 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
  • You must link back to the person that nominated you.
  • After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers (with under 200 followers) and give them 11 questions of your choice.
  • You can not nominate the person who nominated you.

You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link to your post so that they can learn about it.

So lets get started with the questions Zara provided...

1.If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
California!! (I would just love to spend the days surfing- I'm sorry if this is stereotyping but it just sounds awesome!!)

2. Who is your ultimate style inspiration?
I just LOVE Harry Potter, and have done ever since I read the first book when I was in year three. I remember being younger when the Prisoner of Azkaban film was released and Emma Watson wore beige cord trousers through the best part of the film- it made me want them SO bad! I still really look up to Emma Watson's style now, and so I think that she is probably my biggest style inspiration. 

3.What book had a lasting effect on you?
Apart from the Harry Potter books (obviously) I think that a book that had a big impact on me was definitely The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Srephen Chbosky. It is such a moving and inspiring sory, and I have re-read it many times since!

4. What clothing item or accessory can you not live without?
Now this is quite an easy question for me, the answer is definitely a pair of black leggings!! They are just super comfy and easy to wear with anything, especially for those relaxing days indoors! 

5.What era should you have grown up in?
I think that I would have really loved to have ground up in the sixties, although I am aware that this decision may have been heavily influenced by my love of musicals such as Grease and Hairspray!! Ooops!

6. Who do you aspire to be like?
Throughout my life my mum has always taught me that it is important to be your own person, through both actions and personality, so although there are obviously many people that I look up to, I think that it is important to just be the best and happiest that you can be :)

7. What inspired you to start a blog?
I have wanted to start a blog for a really long time, but having spent many years watching numerous Youtubers (for Charlieissocoollike to Zoella) me and my friend Tiffany started (and failed) our own Youtube channel last year. So instead of repeating this mini disaster, I took inspiration from Zoella, who fist started with her own blog, and decided to crack down on the task of a blog. (And I have to say I am already in love (and obsessed) with blogging!)

8. What is your favourite memory?
I am lucky to have many wonderful memories from when I was younger, the best ones being from going on family holidays each year, even though most consisted of camping (the fist time I went aboard was when I was 11) but these were all such good memories, and so I'm going to answer with a grouped memory of 'Holidays' (haha I am a very indecisive person if you haven't already realised!) 

9. If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
As previously mentioned I am a BIG Harry Potter fan, and so it would be an absolute dream for me to meet any of the cast (especially Emma Watson or Rupert Grint!!). Wow that one was a bit easier to answer!!

10. What is your all-time favourite album?
I have to admit that I am certainly not the best when it comes to identifying artists of a song. I tend to just listen to a song if I like it, not because who it is by. But I think my all-time favourite album would be the S Club 7 CD where they are all sitting on a car on the album cover haha! I'm sure you all know which one I'm talking about. This CD just totally reminds me of being a kid, and dancing away at school discos. 

11.If you wrote an autobiography, what would you call it?
Although I have had many wonderful memories, unfortunately everyone seems to experience some bad ones too, and I have had a fair few. However! The friends that I have made through my dance school over the last few years have literally been the best that I could ask for, and have definitely helped to make me who I am today! So, I think that I would call my autobiography 'Dancing in the rain'!!

So my nominations are...

And the questions...
1. What is your favourite place you have ever visited?
2. If you could go shopping with any celebrity, who would it be?

5. What book would you most highly recommend?
6. If you could play any character in a film who would it be?
7. What was your favourite toy from your childhood?
