I was so unbelievably honoured to receive this award from Zoe of ‘Daydreamerchic’, the Liebster Award. It’s a badge bloggers give to one another. I love Zoe’s blog and was shocked to see my little blogs name in her nominations. Then the fear! What would I write. How do I pretend I’m cool *cringe* So I answer eleven questions and offer eleven random facts about myself. Then I nominate my favourite blogs/bloggers; 

 Zoe I went old school on this blog post’s ass! I took out the pen! See how cool I am! NOT! Here are the questions and my answers…

Q. What are your Hidden talents? 

This was a struggle, I’m old enough to know that if you’re talented at anything you should show this off… But, something few people would know about me is, I’m a keen card player. I love all card games and get very competitive when I play. 

Q. What is your favourite movie of all time? 

Soooo difficult! I love films… Really love them, honestly I’ve only gotten into TV in the last ten years. Before that it was movies all the way. If I’d to choose one movie to watch forever, Gone with the wind.

Q. What are your favourite animals? 

I’m not a huge lover of animals, but any neglect of them really upsets me. I’ll be obvious and say Dogs!

Q. Who inspires your style? 

Another tough question, the obvious girls are Olivia Polermo, Jennifer Anistan and SJP. But the bloggers that I read and admire have an impact too. 

Q. What one product can you not live without? 

This would have to be lipgloss. My favourite brands are Chanel and Charlotte Tibury. 

Q. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

To be my own person. My Mam and Dad were old school in our home growing up. Qualities like loyalty, care, compassion were taught to us. I’m also glad I’m not a jealous or begrudging person. 

Q. What’s your signature dish? 

That would have to be Chicken Curry! 

Q. When are you at your happiest? 

I’m at my happiest, when I have Keith and Tom around. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing; as long as the three of us are together. 

Q. What’s your favourite quote? 

It’s Emily Bronte… “He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same” I love this quote. 

Q. Who inspired your blog? 

I love blogs reading and writing. Anyone that has started a blog, has a 12-18 month period were they’re thinking they might start one. I Instablogged here for over a year. Out of the blue my all-time favourite blogger, Laura, from Buy now, Blog later started following me… It gave me the push I needed. 

Q. What is your proudest moment? 

Some would expect me to say when Tom was born, but honestly I’m prouder of the little boy he is. He’s got great manners and he’s a happy pleasant little boy. 

 My eleven random facts about me; 

  • I rebuild a burger before I eat it, especially Le Big Mac!
  • I constantly make up the words to songs when I don’t know them.
  • My favourite meal is Breakfast or Brunch, I always order French Toast.
  • I have a fine palette for tasting different Colas… I was gonna say Cokes…But that sounds wrong. Don’t try pass off Pepsi as Coca Cola…Although the Cherry Pepsi Max is lovely. 
  • I love homemade nachos with salsa, cheese, jalapeños and guacamole.
  • I can not share sauce… You know a BBQ or Hot Sauce with a pizza or something…Actually not great with sharing food in general. #Joeydoesntsharefood.
  • I’m a huge fan of Jane Austen and  the fashion of the Regency Era.
  • I collect Make-up bags…
  • I don’t wear slippers, I’m most comfortable in my bare feet.
  • Going on holidays I have to have new underwear. #weirdo
  • I’m quite a soft person who feels deeply, although unless you really know me ~ you’d never be able to tell.
