Liebster Blog Tag

I still haven't managed to find the time or the confidence to take any more outfit photos, so I'm going to try and post some other things until I feel a little better about that.
I was recently tagged by Lisa over at The Brunette Diaries to take part in the Liebster Blog award, so here goes.
The Rules:
Answer the 11 questions that your tagger gave you.
Choose 11 other blogs to nominate.
Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers that were nominated.
Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog

These are the 11 questions which Lisa set me. 
1) Have you already broken a new years resolution? I haven't exactly broken any of my resolutions yet, although I've not really done a lot at the allotment yet, this year. I have quite a few goals for 2014 and so far they seem to be going ok..

2) Did you celebrate on new years eve? Kind of. I am not a huge fan of NYE if I'm honest, but I dressed up and had a few friends around to see the new year in.

3) Do you worry about what the New Year will bring? I'm trying to be a lot more relaxed and worry less, so I'm just determined to try and enjoy myself throughout 2014, rather than worry about it. There are big things which may or may not happen soon; I've been house-hunting for a good six months or so now, but with little success. 

4) Are you booking a holiday sometime soon and where too? The only holiday I have booked so far is a Brownie camp in the summer holidays, as I've been asked to be part of their organising committee. I also have a couple of little getaways planned which I'm sworn to secrecy on, but I'd love a week on the beach as well.

5) Was 2013 a good/bad year for you? 2013 certainly had it's stressful moments, mostly work-related. I guess I should consider everything which happened a learning opportunity, and it has certainly changed the way I look at things now in a commercial situation. 

6) If you could buy one thing now with £20.00 what would it be? Since I'm feeling quite inspired about dressmaking again at the moment, I'd like to have this Cambie pattern to have a go at. 

7) If you could buy one thing now for £500.00 what would it be? Top of my wishlist at the moment is a new camera. I think I'm going to go for a Canon 1100D which I know would give me change from £500. 

8) What month is your birthday? May

9) Have you ever been to Devon/Cornwall? Devon? Yes. Cornwall no. We used to go on family holidays down to Devon when I was a kid and take a day trip here, which was always amazing!

10) Have you got a best friend and why are they your best friend? I have, although it makes me sad that I don't see her as much as I'd like to. I guess she's my best friend because I know that she'll always support me in whatever I choose to do (however ill-advised) and despite the fact that we don't spend anywhere near as much time together as we should, when I do get to see her we pick up exactly where we left off. I also feel super relaxed in her company and can happily sit around in my PJs with her doing nothing in particular. Sometimes PJs which we've had to make when we've got home from a night out as she forgot to bring any with her. <3

11) Do you like your job? I really do. Some of the time it's a bit stressful, but what job isn't? 

Choose 11 other blogs to nominate.
This can be the tricky part. I'm never sure which people have done which tags, or if people like to do them or not, but if you would like to give this a go, that would be great. In no particular order, I tag:
Lucy // Louise // Tori // Sarah // Becks // Hazel // Maria // Laura // Alice // Nicola // Kezzie

Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers that were nominated. 

1. What is your favourite thing to do on a rainy day? 
2. Skirts or shorts? 
3. If you found £10 on the pavement, what would you do with it?
4. Favourite colour?
5. Best advice someone has ever given you?

6. Where would you most like to go in the world? 
7. What super-power would you most like to have and why?
8. Who is the last person you sent a text to?
9. How many times per day do you brush your teeth (randomly this was a question on a survey I recently was paid to take part in!)? 
10. What is the last blog you followed?
11. Do you prefer to read e-books or regular books? Library or shop-bought?

If you do take part, be sure to let me know as I'd love to have a read. Please don't feel that you have to take part, if you'd rather not, though!


  1. Thanks for the tag, I enjoy doing these.

  3. I went to the milky way too! I forgot how much I missed going to devon as a kid. x Jazzy at

  4. Aw, thank you for tagging me! I'll put a post together for it soon!

    I don't get to see my best friend often, either, since she lives on the other side of the country. We may only get to see each other a couple of times a year, but when we meet up it's always like we've never been apart. Being able to slob around in PJs with no make up on and still have a laugh is a sign of a great friendship! I does suck not having a best friend who lives nearby, but I think that managing a long distance friendship can prove how much you mean to each other.

    Also, you need to visit Cornwall sometime! It's the best part of the country! xx

  5. I've never been to Cornwall either but i am sure it is a great place!Congrats on the award!

  6. Loved reading this I am not a fan of NYE and I don't live in the same city as my best friend so I wish I could see her more I love your questions too x

  7. Thanks for the tag missy, I've answered your questions today :) That Cambie pattern looks lovely, would love to see what you'd make!
