So today I’m veering off my usual ‘Tipsy Tuesday’, because the lovely Becky at BeckInABlog nominated me for the Liebster Award!! Thank you very much Becky, it means a lot to have been nomianated. I can’t believe that I started this blog less than three months ago, and already I’m getting prepared to host my 100 Followers Celebration Giveaway. How has that even happened? If you haven’t already, you should go and check out her blog! Like me, she’s a fellow actress with a passion for all things beauty, only she’s graduated from Drama School and I’m still waiting to do my auditions to go…
For any of you reading this who aren’t familiar with this particular award, the rules are this:
1. You must link back to the person who nominated you (done already, look how efficient this all is…)
2. Answer 11 questions set by the person who nominated you
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers and come up with 11 questions for them to answer
4. Let them know about their nomination!
So… Becky gave me these 11 questions and I’m going to go ahead and do my best at answering them :)
1- What is one beauty product you couldn’t live without?
2- What are your favourite lazy day activities?
I like to watch rubbish on TV, do a bit of lazy cooking (like a stir fry), watch YouTube videos, read blogs, online window shop, have a LUSH bath…
3- The outdoors or indoors?
Even though I spend a lot of my time being forced indoors because of working, I love the outdoors. I love camping, hiking, walking the dogs, just being outside. It’s so nice and just makes me feel a bit more like a human and less like a weird little work drone.
4- Pool or the ocean?
Pool. I love the Ocean, but the salt water is just a no no for me. I wear contacts and whilst I can get away with wearing them in a pool and keeping my head above water in a pool, in the ocean, if a tiny bit of water got in my eye I can’t even begin to imagine the pain and swelling. Ewwwwww. Pools just feel cleaner and more refreshing.
5- City or countryside?
This one is so difficult. I love city life. Just love it. I prefer the atmosphere of cities and the way in which they function, it suits my frame of mind. However, I grew up in the countryside and I love the outdoors, so it’d be really hard to choose. I think I’d have to say city, but spending lots of time in secret undiscovered areas of the parks and going on holidays to the Lake District. Is that answer cheating? Oh well…
6- Favourite travel destination?
Ahhh! Again, so so diffcult! I have three… The first is Phuket, a small Island just off Thailand. We’ve been going to the same resort every few years since I was probably about two years old and it’s so amazing. You can go on speedboat tours, ride Elephants, get amazing massages on the beach. Also, because we know the resort so well, it’s so easy for us kids to know our way around the resort and the Island and just go off and do our own thing. The next one is New York City – the total opposite. Like I said before, I get on with city life and New York is just a summary of everything I love. I really want to go back and even live there for a few months if I could, I feel there is just so much to do and see there that I need to discover! The final is… Orlando, Florida. Yes, I love Disney. Actually, that’s the biggest understatement of the century. We’ve been going there for literally years. I love all the theme parks, Magic Kingdom is always going to be the best because of how overhwelmingly exciting and cool and amazing it is, but Universal Studios is just incredible – the rides are fantastic and so are all the little shops and bits and bobs around the place. Sea World is also super cool. Plus, the Malls are really good.
7- One of your goals for the next 5 years?
To have graduated from Drama School, with a First in Acting.
8- What is one thing you are really looking forward to?
My 18th Birthday right now! My Auntie is coming over from America for it, all my friends are getting together, it’s just going to be really nice. I’ve been through a really hard struggle with my physical and mental health during my teenage years and I’m finally really happy and in a good place, and it’ll be really nice to celebrate that, marking the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next one. I’m also really looking forward to starting my Drama School auditions!
9- One famous person you would love to have take you shopping?
Either Gok Wan or Louise Roe. Gok Wan is so fabulous and I’d love to have a great day out, with great shopping, some lunch, it’d be the ultimate day out. However, Louise Roe seems to be able to transform women’s bodies and get their personalities in some fantastic looks for all occasions and I’d love to have her basically buy me a new wardrobe and show me how to wear it.
10- Favourite type of food?
Ethnic. I’m not that keen on heavy carbs, they make me feel awful and bloated. But I love ethnic food based around rice, noodles, etc. Also, the flavours and textures are so so delicious.
11- Chocolate or vanilla?
Hmmmm….. Vanilla. I love vanilla in lots of things actually, come to think of it. A lot of my candles have had vanilla as an ingredient, I always get Skinny Vanilla Lates at Starbucks or Costa and Vanilla goes into pretty much any baking recipe with me.
There you go, Becky (and everyone else) – all 11 questions, answered!
My nominations are…
