The Liebster Award

I have seen this award go around on multiple blogs before, I have been nominated twice (I know crazy!) by the lovely Jemma from The Sweet Pea Life and the fabulous Theresa from Theresa Cosgrove to do this award/tag thing, that's my best way to describe it. The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 1,000 followers, I personally think it is bloggers sharing the love with other bloggers who may have a small following. Here are the rules:
  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog
  2. Answer the 11 questions you have been asked     
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers for the award
  4. Ask them 11 questions of your own
I would like to thank Jemma for nominating me, I was so surprised when I she nominated me. Here are Jemma's questions:

1. What is your favourite thing about blogging?

I love being able to express myself in any way or form and also the community, I have some blogger friends that I wouldn't know at all if it weren't for blogging.

2. What is your favourite movie and why?

Hmm.... That's hard! I would have to say Deadpool as it is hilarious and I love action movies.

3. If you could choose a country to live in for the rest of your life, which country would it be and why?

Definitely America, I don't know where though but I'm just sick for the terrible weather in Ireland and to experience a new way of living.

4. Dog or Cat?

Dog, of course! I hate cats and anyways dogs are so friendly and cute.

5. If you were stranded on an desert island and could only bring 3 things, what 3 things would you bring and why?

I would bring my guitar (Spark), notebooks and pens. I feel like playing my guitar would keep me sane while I could write songs, stories, plays, draw etc in my notebooks. I would be half tempted to bring my laptop or computer but I think my answer is simple. 

6. What has been your most recent purchase?

I have been on a slight spending ban as I'm going to Barcelona (sorry I keep mentioning it) but my most recent purchase has been EcoTools Eye Enhancing Duo Brush Set and Sleek Makeup Lip VIP in Backstage 1003.

7. What are your other passions in life, aside from blogging?

My other passions are acting, playing my guitar and writing (Songs, stories, plays). My main one is definitely acting, I am a drama queen and without a play or something to look forward to I go a bit mad.

8. Chocolate or Chips?

Chocolate 100%!

9. If you could host a dinner party with 4 people of your choosing, who would you invite and why?

I would pick Matthew Gray Gubler, as he is such a unique person, Taylor Swift, as she is one of my favourite people, J.K. Rowling, as I love Harry Potter and I could ask her for help writing a novel, and Robert Sheehan, as he is an Irish actor and went to my secondary school, I'd love to talk to him about what acting is like

10. Tell me one interesting fact about yourself.

I'm part pencil! I know it sounds crazy but I have a tiny piece of pencil stuck in my left hand, I know I should get it removed............

11. What one thing makes you the most happy?

Acting! I love to act and be on stage. It is kinda like a drug to me, I know its a weird way to describe it, but I'm  happiest when I am doing a play and after its finished I get really sad and upset.

I would like to thank Theresa, I was so surprised that I would get nominated again! Here are her questions: 

Dream holiday?

Road Trip around America stopping in loads of different locations 

Favourite makeup brand?

Hmm Probably NYX

City or Country?

City, definitely! Being from the country I know how boring it is 

Favourite type of music?

Pop, R&B and a little Country 

Favourite thing to blog about?

This may sound terrible but about myself, what I'm doing, how I'm feeling, my thoughts etc etc.

Favourite social media?

Has to be Twitter! It's so quick to send a tweet and it anything can be put up.

If you could be someone else for a day who would you be and why?

I couldn't pick one person, it would be between JK Rowling, to see what it's like to be a writer, Jennifer Lawrence, to see what it is like to be an actress and Taylor Swift, to see what goes on when recording an album.

Coke or Pepsi?


Favourite colour?


Go to clothing item? (Staple/must have)

Hmm.. Winter: My Boots. Summer: my dungarees 

Winter or Summer?

Both, I like both for different reasons
