Liebster Award

I would like to thank Jodie Marie from What Would Audrey Wear for nominating me for a Liebster Award. I honestly had no idea what this was until I read her blog (click here to find out more). It's basically a way of getting more followers to your blog and is specifically for people with under 200 followers! I've only been writing this blog for a little bit over a month and I have 12 followers which I am delighted with. And I'd like to thank each of my followers for following me, and I will follow you back #follow4follow! 
So the Liebster Award involves giving 11 random facts about yourself, answering 11 questions which are given by the blogger who nominated you, and then nominating another 11 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) and giving them 11 new questions! So the cycle continues...

Ok so here it goes... 

11 Random Facts About Me...

  1. I've known one of my best friends for over 20 years
  2. I'm afraid of getting old
  3. I have a million teddies, but don't want to throw any of them out because they hold too many memories
  4. I love Eeyore
  5. Penguins make me laugh (it's there walk)

  10. I think I can dance...I can't
  11. I've never seen Finding Nemo or the Breakfast Club
I have a full list of 100 facts about me, if you want to read more...

My 11 Questions...

1. Why you began blogging
That's kind of a tough one...I guess it was because I had an interview last  year with LA Make Up Academy and I lost out on a job because I had no real knowledge of blogs. It was somewhere I would have loved to work, so after this I began reading more and more blogs and eventually decided to start my own. And a year later here I am. The real push was my best friend setting up hers...and I just kind of though "Hey, I can do this too"
2. Favourite thing you've worn
I'm going to answer this one a little differently than expected as I have no real favourite item of clothing, as they're all my favourite! So, my favourite thing I've worn and still wear everyday is my Claddagh ring. I got this off a friend over two years ago and it's something I couldn't stand to loose. It went missing for about half a day and I paniked! I guess it just means a lot to me and there are a lot of memories based around it!
3. 3 goals you want to achieve this year
#1. Pass all my exams with at least a 2.1
#2. Get healthier and try quit smoking
#3. Get a good job
4 Favourite Disney character
Now this one is easy...The Little Mermaid, mainly because she had rad hair, and I have red hair. When I was younger, having red hair was a weird thing (even though I'm from Ireland, I was the only girl in my class with red hair), and it still is a kind of weird thing! I used to watch the little mermaid everyday, until my tape got jammed in the VCR and I never replaced it. I also used to pretend I was a mermaid every time I would go swimming and my sister would pretend to be Sebastian, Flounder or a shark! We done this up until I was 14....
5. Best thing that's ever happened to you
I guess there's no one greatest thing that's ever happened to me...I love my life now as it is and I think everything happens for a reason. But if I had to pick one chapter in my life so far it would probably be meeting the five amazing ladies I call my best friends (Ash, Niamh, Meghan, Lynne and Gra).
6. Item that's top of your wishlist right now
I recently done a blog on my March wishlist and the Jeffrey Campbell Damsel Spike Boots are probably right at the top of my wishlist, mainly because I have been looking at these for months!
7. Favourite place in the world
I'm quite lucky I drive and there's so many peaceful places I can go in Dublin and hide away from everything. Only a select amount of people know these places and no one knows all of them! However, if there was one place I would love to go back to, it would definitly be New York. I mentioned in a previous post that I would marry the person that brought me back to New York, or at least carry their children! I adore the place, mainly because of all of the hustle and bustle, and the amount of different types of people you can run into.
8. Comfort food
Cheese...I could eat cheese with anything! Year ago I wouldn't touch it, but now my love has much so that my friend Ger's dad was going to get me a block for my 21st!  I'll have it with anything....
9. Where/ how you met your best friend
I'm so luck that I have two super best friends and I'm so lucky to have them. I was fortunate enough to meet Niamh when I was only a baba! My mam used to babysit her and she literally live half a minute away! We have been hrough everything together from our first day a playschool, to primary school, to secondary school, ballet, first boyfriends....literally everything! She's an amazing person and we have so many memories together. My second best friend, Ash, is also an amazing person...I met her in my first year of secondary school and we bonded over dogs. We've basically been inseparable ever since and I see her at least every second day. Although we've had our ups and downs, I know both Niamh and Ash will be there for me through it all!
10. What inspires your style
Blogs...I also get these little trends stuck in my head and stick with them.
11. Beauty product you can't live without
My foundation...I have freckles and absolutly hate them, even though people say they're not that bad. I have to cover them up, otherwise it is literally like I'm a day-walker!
