The Liebster Award


I have been nominated by the lovely Jay from Blissful Beauty Bird to do the Liebster Award! If you don't know, this online award is designed for new blogs to be discovered and a way of getting to know a bit about the nominees. Once you have been nominated these are the steps you'll be taking:
  1.  Answer the questions that have been given to you by the person who nominated you.
  2. Share 11 random facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers of your choice and set them 11 questions to answer.
So now let's dive into the questions Jay has given me!

1. How long have you been blogging for?
- I have been blogging since July 2014, so that makes it almost two years now!

2. What inspired you to start blogging?
- Luanna of le-happy.com. She's my number one style inspiration and all time woman crush.

3. Which post is your favourite that you've written so far?
- Hmm, I have to say most of my outfit posts, as they are my favourite posts to blog!

4. What's your favourite quote to live by?
- "Do Or Do Not, There Is No Try"

5. One place you've travelled to that you can visit over and over again?
- Probably Japan! Although I've never actually visited it yet 😆

6. Describe your blog in 4 words.
- Quirky, alternative, purple-y, random.

7. You pick up your phone, what's the first app you go on?
- Twitter!

8. What routine do you have to unwind?
- Reading or writing in my personal diary.

9. If you could be a character from any show, who would you be and why?
- Alex Russo (played by Selena Gomez) in Wizards of Waverly Place as she is incredibly witty and funny, and an exact representation of myself. Except with magic.

10. Favourite spring clothing item?
- Definitely a kimono! I have 3 of them, and they will surely be making rounds this season.

11. Advice/encouragement you'd give other bloggers?
- Never ever compare yourself to other bloggers! Your blog is your own achievement and your content, writing style etc. is what makes your blog UNIQUE!

Thank you Jay for the amazing questions! Now let's move on to 11 random facts about myself:

1. I am an avid coffee drinker. I can drink more than a cup in a day. It's bad though, cos I am already immune to its effects now. But I can't help it either cos I loveeee coffee. Hehe.

2. I love pasta. I can live on it forever.

3. If you were to ask me what's my style, I will say that I don't have one cos I basically wear whatever I want haha. But I do know that I love goth, grunge and kawaii fashion.

4. Cats are my spirit animal.

5. In an alternate universe, I wanna be an Elven Princess with fairy wings.

6. I am obsessed with lipsticks, necklaces and chokers. These are the 3 things I will ALWAYS buy.

7. If money isn't a problem, I would be an avid traveller.

8. Purple is my favourite colour, if you can't already tell.

9. It would be a dream come true if I could actually be a production crew for a Star Wars movie.

10. I'm not a huge fan of donuts, cupcakes and churros, but give me macarons any day man.

11. I am constantly driven by success.
