Liebster Award

A few weeks ago the lovely Vanessa from Nessbow nominated me for the Liebster Award which is really nice of her and excited for me. I really am truly grateful. I've always wanted to be nominated for an award within the blogging community. As far as awards go, it isn't exactly an Oscar but I'd rather win this than 'favourite member of the form' from a teacher at school. For the award (the Liebster Award, not the school one) I must do the following:

  • Post eleven random facts about myself and answer the eleven questions from the person who nominated me
  • Pass on the award to eleven other blogs (let them know that I've nominated them) and write eleven questions for them to answer
  • You are not allowed to nominate the blog who nominated you
  • The blogs you choose must have 200 followers or less
I thought that it would also be relevant to mention that Liebster is German for beloved or favourite which is sweet.
