Blogging fun - The Liebster award!!

Hi, a week or so ago I was nominated for the Liebster award by Leanne (@LeanneDunnage) who blogs over at LeanneonLife. It's a fun way to get to know the bloggers behind the screen and have a little me time. Head on over to Leanne's blog to find out why she started blogging, who inspires her and her dream career. Thanks Leanne!

Here are the rules;
1. Thank and link the person who has nominated you
2. Answer the nominator's 11 questions.
3. Nominate 11 small blogs who have less than 200 followers (I cheated a little here!). You should believe that they deserve this award and include their link in your post.
4. Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer. Notify these nominees via social media or their blogs.

So, let's go with Leanne's questions from her post;

1. What is the most amazing thing that has happened to you, so far in your life?
Starting with a tough one! Falling wonderfully, hopelessly and crazily in love, it changed my life.

2. Why did you start blogging?
This beauty DIY. I discovered a way to ease the torturous itching on my legs after shaving and wanted to share it. Now that I'm here I'd love to meet more bloggers and socialise a little!

3. What or who is your blog inspired by?
I have a lot of opinions, I need somewhere to put them! :-D
My blog is inspired the many many teen mags I read - when beauty all about sprinkling glitter over your eyes, lips and cheeks and buying strawberry lip balm.

4. Where will your blog take you?
To opportunity! Opportunity to meet other bloggers and have some fun, and career-wise to keep my skills as a writer sharp; "writer's write", you can't call yourself a writer if you don't practice!!

5. What is your dream in life?
To work for myself in a career in which I feel I'm achieving something. Have enough money to never worry about money, to go shopping without looking at prices, go on holidays whenever I like and have a life full of love. And own a bright yellow car to park next to my bright yellow house. :-)

6. If you were to win £10 million on the lottery, what would be the first thing you would spend it on?
I'd set up a trust to end dog fighting and jail all those involved in such a disgusting practice.
More light-heartedly, I'd give away loads to my family, go travelling first-class all the way, and produce/finance a run of Calamity Jane in the West End and cast myself in the lead!!

7. Who is your favourite music artist and why?
Doris Day, Hayley Westenra, Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Sutton Foster, Sammy Davis Jr, Bruno Mars, Celtic Woman, Ed Sheeran - because they all make me feel good and are all immensely talented. And of course Irving Berlin and Cole Porter for some of the world's greatest songs!

8. When are you at your happiest?
When I'm completely content. Today I sat in the sun with my dog on my lap reading, last week it was  sitting outside a caravan doing a crossword puzzle with boyfriend, a couple of weeks ago I was cuddled up with the boyfriend drinking cider in Lisbon, last week it was getting all dressed up in my fanciest dress and watching the Opera Madama Butterfly. My happiest moments are when I'm completely absorbed in whatever I'm doing and my worries float away.

9. Who is your hero/heroine/the person you most look up to? Why?
A drama teacher I know who has true and real empathy for everyone. She radiates energy and light and has a smile, encouragement and positivity for everyone. She has genuine empathy and I really admire that.

10. Describe your dream life
A life of real, genuine freedom with enough money that I never need worry about it. I can pursue lessons and classes, travel whenever I like, spend time with my family and gorgeous doggie, and decorate everything sunshine yellow!!

11. What is your favourite 'treat'?
It changes but at the moment, Eton mess, with extra meringue or rich, dark chocolate mousse with a hint of coffee.

Some big, tough questions there! I discovered some things about myself I think.

Okay, here are my 11 questions;
1. If you could click your fingers and be anywhere in the world where would you go?
2. If you could eat 1 meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
3. What item do you absolutely refuse to compromise on cost?
4. Which bad habit would you like to break?
5. What quality in others do you envy the most?
6. Tell us about something you own with great sentimental value.
7. If you were to teach a class in something what would it be?
8. If you could spend a month experiencing a different way of life what life would you choose?
9. Who would be invited to your fantasy dinner party? (alive or dead!)
10. What scares you?
11. How would you like to leave your mark on the world?

I hope you all like these questions girls! I'll be reading all your answers.
