Liebster award

Hello Lovely People,

So I got nominated by three lovely bloggers (Alizzet101, Toxylicious and Glamour, above all things) for the Liebster Award. I have already done this once before, but I thought I'd do it once more (its alright I won't be doing it again for a while, don't worry).

So as before the rules haven't changed from last time. There are rules to this award are:

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
5. Go to their page and tell them.
6. Remember, no tag backs!

11 things about myself:

  1. I have a current obsession with Mango. Anything mango I will buy it, whether its body spray, food, soap etc I love Mangoes.
  2. I have a love for cheesy reality television. TOWIE, Geordie Shore and anything in between, I love them, they make my life seem so easy haha.
  3. I did Gymnastics for 7 years when I was younger. I performed in a few competitions I really enjoyed it.
  4. I do Zumba twice a week. I really enjoy it. I've even doing for over a year and I've even done a blog post about it.
  5. I love cooking and baking. Thats all I can say on that one haha.
  6. I was born and raised in Wolverhampton, however I don't have the accent associated with Wolverhampton.
  7. I'm totally obsessed with twitter. Especially since I got the account for my blog I have spent most of my days on twitter. If you want to follow i'm @abotat90 ( which stands for a bit of this and that -which is my blog obviously and 90 stands for the year I was born)
  8. I really enjoy doing guest posts, its a chance to get my little blog out to more people but it also gives me a chance to meet other bloggers and make new friends.
  9. I have one older sibling - a brother, who lives and works in Bristol and we go and visit often.
  10. There are many places in the UK that I love to visit, which include Bristol, York and Birmingham.
  11. I would love to get to 100 followers and do a giveaway (who knows what the giveaway will include yet.)
So I now have three lots of 11 questions to do... so we better get into it eh? We'll go alphabetically so lets start with Alizzet101's questions:

1. If money was no object, what would you love to have?
If money was no object, I'd love to have a house of my own, a lot of expensive make up, oh and a place in London so I can go to west end theatre shows whenever I want. ( I don't want much do I haha)
2. What is your favourite thing to eat?
My favourite thing to eat is my own homemade lemon chicken and egg fried rice (impressed?). I love Chinese food!!
3. High end or Drugstore?
I don't have much experience with High End but I do love my Drugstore. Rimmel and Revlon are my favourites.
4. Would you rather read the book or watch the movie?
It depends on the book/film. Hunger Games I've read all three books before the first film came out. But Harry Potter (prepare to hate me for this) I read a couple of the books but never finished the collection, however I've watched all the films.
5. What do you order at Starbucks?
My current favourite is a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappe, Hands Down :)
6. When was the last time you laughed really hard?
Ooh I can't remember. It probably involved my best friend, who can make me giggle even when I'm down.
7. When you wake up, what's the first thing you think of?
Probably oh god can I go back to sleep haha.
8. Would you rather never being able to wear mascara or never being able to wear foundation?
I'd rather never wear mascara because my eyelashes are relatively dark naturally. Foundation covers a multitude of sins.
9. What country would you love to visit?
I'd love to visit America  but there are many other places I'd like to visit if I could.
10. What was the last concert you went to?
The last concert I watched was probably a classical concert as my family are into that ( we're not posh or anything I promise)
11. If you could describe yourself in one word, what would it be?

Now Glamour, Above All things:
1. What's your favourite hair product?
Organix Morroccan Oil, go look at my review :)
2. Favourite makeup product?
Probably Rimmel Wake me up Foundation. I've loved it ever since it came out
3. Where do you see yourself in ten years?
In 10 years, (here comes the cheesy answer) Married with children, good job, good friends,nice house.
4. Musicians or footballers?
Musicians any time. Give me a man who can play a guitar  (who has tattoos) and I'm happy. Now you all know my type haha.
5. Your style icon is ... 
ooh erm I don't have an actual style icon. I am just a fan of anyone who can have a personal style and the confidence to rock it. Everyone is my style icon.
6. What's your favourite colour?
I love purple/lilac.
7. Stockings or tights?
Tights..they keep you warm and they can suck you in.
8. How often do you wash your makeup brushes? (genuinely want to know)
Once a month.
9. Which would you rather live without - eye makeup or hair products?
I'd rather live without eye make up because without products my hair gets crazy!
10. Favourite cocktail?
Long Island Iced Tea... Easy question (also one of the best questions ever... bravo)
11. Secret embarrassing obsession - 
I don't think I have a secret obsession. I have three less secret obsessions, which are scarfs, romcom dvds and shoes

Finally Toxylicious:

1.Whats the main reason you started blogging?
I started blogging because I'd seen so many blogs that I enjoyed reading so I set up a google friend connect profile so I could comment. Then one day I saw that Louise Sprinkle of Glitter was doing an interactive blog post called 7 things for 7 days, which I thought was a great idea. I joined in and thus my blog was born.
Whats your utmost guilty pleasure?
Watching Geordie Shore with wine and chocolate.Top 3 most used websites and why?
New Look Online, YouTube and Twitter. New Look because for the most part they have relatively good cheap clothes, YouTube because it holds hours of entertainment and Twitter because it gives me a way to chat to you lovely people.Whats your best beauty tip?
Make sure you wash your make up brushes regularly because they hold bacteria and dirt in, which  you don't want to be rubbing all over your face.  
Most prized fashion item in your wardrobe?
It is currently the dress I am going to be wearing next Friday to one of my closest friends weddings. Its a blue maxi dress with butterflies on it. I shall try and do an OOTD post for it.
Dream date - who, where, why?
Who: someone that I love and who loves me (haven't found them yet)
Where: Nice meal maybe.
Why: I don't get why? I'll have to leave it.Most embarrassing track on your ipod?
Macerena, The Ketchup Song...any cheesy song. You name it I have it!Naughtiest thing you have ever gotten away with?
I'm going to be really geeky and angelic right now and say I've never been naughty.Whats your most favourite place in the world to be and why?
Here's another cheesy answer, Home is my favourite place to be because I love being around my family and my dog.Name 3 bloggers that inspire you and why?
Sprinkle of Glitter- because she has amazing style and a great personality. She inspired me to start blogging.
FleurdeForce - Same reason as before.
Leanne Woodfull ( because she has her own personal style and she rocks it with such confidence.

There are all my answers. It took a while to write so congratulations if you got to the end of it.

I nominate:

  1. Whats your favourite season-fashion wise?
  2. Whats your favourite colour?
  3. Whats your favourite food?
  4. Drugstore or High End?
  5. What would be your ideal meal?
  6. If you were in the olympics, what would be your event?
  7. Name your favourite three bloggers and why?
  8. Who is your favourite NEW blogger?
  9. Twitter or Facebook?
  10. High Street or Designer?
  11. Theatre or Cinema?
So there you go. This has probably been my longest blog post. I promise I shall not be doing another one of these award posts for a while.
