Liebster Award Nomination!

The lovely Emma Berry (check out her blog here) has nominated me for a Liebster award...not quite sure what it is but as my first blog nomination I'm excited! So here are my answers:

1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I had wanted to start a blog for absolutely ages, but I think deep down I was a little scared so I kept putting it off. Anyway, I finally plucked up the courage and kind of see this blog as a way to practise my writing as well as share my love of cooking and other things. Working in the world of marketing & PR it's a good way to develop outside of the working world. 

2. Stand out moment of 2013 so far?
A few. I think the whole falling in love and moving in with said boy has been a pretty big part of my year so far! Also seeing my niece celebrate her 1st birthday and Christening in one day, something a year ago I wasn't sure was going to happen.

3. What is your horoscope sign and do you think it relates to your character?
I'm a Pisces and yeah I think I'm semi-related to the character. I mean a typical Pisces character is apparently imaginative, compassionate and indecisive? I think those three words sum me up pretty well - especially the indecisive one! 

4. Do you have a geek-girl passion?  If so, what is it?
Yes! Doesn't everyone? I think I have two.. I'm a massive social media geek, despite it being my line of work I actually enjoy reading about the latest updates and news within that field! The other one is I am a massive book nerd. I'm constantly reading, or finding something new to read. I'm currently reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult and would definitely recommend it, I haven't been able to put it down!

5. What has been your favourite blog post so far?
Well as I'm new to this blogging scene I haven't got many to go with, but let's go with this Nutella & choc chip bread and butter pudding recipe.

6. The Beatles or Rolling Stones?
Am I allowed to pick both??!

7. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I'm longing to go back to Australia, so I think I'd pick there and travel onwards to New Zealand...y'know as I'm down that way! ;)

8. Baz Luhrmann - love him or hate him?

9. What is your life's motto?
If it's meant to be, it'll find it's way.

10. What one piece of advice would you give your younger self?
You're only young once so make the most of it, say yes to as much as possible.

Ok so now I have to nominate some blogs I think are worth a little lookeysee. To gain your award, all you need to do is answer my questions, link me in to your post, then choose between 5 and 11 other bloggers that have under 200 followers to pass this on to, create 10 questions for them to answer and viola, done!

Here are my nominations:

The barbelle

Avo's life

Dimple to dimple

1. What is your favourite book?
2. If you had to live in another decade, which would you choose and why?
3. Morning person or night owl?
4. What's your biggest fear?
5. What is your go to comfort food?
6. Last film you watched and what did you think?
