The Liebster Award

So up until yesterday I had never heard of this and so set upon my merry away to do a little research.When I received a tweet from  Zee-Railed I immediately went on to her blog page and discovered how cool this nomination really is. This is an amazing opportunity for new bloggers to get some recognition for the work they have done so far. This blog has only been active for three weeks now and I regard this as a huge honour that someone else has noticed and appreciated the work that I have done so far. The next tough task now is for me to nominate ten blogs and this is where most of my research went into. I also thought this was an amazing way to discover blogs that I may never have stumbled upon on my own. There are a few that I have nominated that are nothing short of brilliant and I am so happy to say that they are Irish based blogs. 

For those of you who I have nominated there are a few rules of the awards; 
1. You have to post 11 things about yourslef. 
2. Answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you and create 11 more for the people you choose to nominate.
3. Choose 11 people to nominate and tag them in your post.
4. Go to their page and let them know that you have nominated them.
5.  No tag backs!

So first of all, 11 random facts about me: 
1. I am terrified of banana skins 2. Up until a year ago I hated tea! 3. I hate the feeling of cardboard 4. I am moving to London next month. 5. I have a degree in event management and PR. 6. I have a brother that lives in Ukraine 7. My favourite TV show is Sex and the City 8. I have a serious girl crush on Morgan Joanel 9. At the moment my favourite band is Daughter! If you haven't heard of them I really recommend them. 10. My fave chocolate bar is kinder bueno 11. I plan on living in all the great cities of the world. 

Here were the questions that I must answer: 

1.)  Whats the best book you’ve read recently?
At the minute I am reading The Great Gatsby and I have fallen in love with it. The movie is amazing but the book is somehting else. I think I should have been born in that era. 

2.)  A pet peeve?
Repeating a story I have just told somebody and they werent listening and rude people also really annoy me. It costs nothing to be nice. 

3.)  An embarrassing story?
When I was younger I got caught kssing a boy by my teacher and was sent up to the principal to explain the "incident". It was walso my last day of primary school!

4.)  What age were you when you stopped believing in Santa Claus?

5.)  Something you’d love to learn how to do?
Play the guitar! I love music and have also wanted to learn but have never seemed to get around to it. Perhaps this will be the year. 

6.)  If mutants were real and you were in Charles Xaviers school what power would you want?
To read peoples minds would be a great power. 

7.)  If you could take two people dead or alive to dinner who would they be?
Marilyn Monroe and Ryan Gosling 

8.)  What would you ask them?
Id ask Marilyn how she really died and I'd ask Ryan Gosling out for another dinner! 

9.)  Something that you learned recently?
To not take everything so seriously and life is too short not to do what you want to do 

10.)  Your favorite shop?
For now, H&M
