Tag: The Liebster Award

Saturday, 12 March 2016

It's about time I got round to writing this post, so far I have been tagged by SIX different blogging friends to do a Liebster Award post. They were Tazhi Luxe, Annie's Perception, Steph from Vanity and Vodka, Lauren from Made To Love and Melberryy Unfortunately I cannot for the life of me remember the last person who tagged me, so please speak up if you see this post.

(Seriously please stop tagging me for this it's tiring me out!)

Now, onto the Liebster Award...

I've seen loads of variations of this award, some where you have to write facts about yourself and some where you don't. I'm choosing to do the version that seems the most fun, mainly because I secretly hate chain-mail type things. HOWEVER I am insanely flattered that so many people thought my blog was good enough to nominate me for this (and only a little bit miffed when I realised it wasn't an award you could receive a sparkly trophy for.)

The rules of the award are simple, but that doesn't mean I'm actually going to follow them *cheesy grin.*

1. Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog in your post.
2. Show the award on your blog or in your post. (Lol, no.)
3. Answer the 11 questions asked by the person who nominated you. 
(I will instead be answering several questions from each who nominated me to make it fair! Plus I can't be bothered to do them individually...)
4. Write 11 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 5-11 bloggers that you feel deserve the award (I'm asking who wants to be nominated.)
6. Create a list of new questions for your nominees to answer.
7. Once your blog is published, let your nominees know that they have been nominated and link them to your post for more details.

So, onto the mix of questions!

What colour would your dream bedroom be painted?
My bedroom is currently pink and white and I adore it the way it is, but I would love all pure white walls and a really minimalist 'instagram friendly' look.

What’s one makeup or skincare item you couldn't live without?
Mascara, I just have to have mascara as my lashes are naturally blonde and I look like one of those albino hamsters when I don't have any on (I know, it's tragic.)

Why did you start blogging?
Lots of reasons. The first being that I had just been through a break up and needed something to take my mind off it. The second is that Mandy from A Girl, Obsessed is just such a huge inspiration to me, I wanted to be as interesting as her. The last is that for my coursework last year I had to write a blog post and I loved it so much that I uploaded it and my blog grew from there.

What was your best blogging moment and what was your most awkward blogging moment?
The best moment was when I first joined Twitter in January, and suddenly my views and my blog totally exploded with love and comments. The most awkward moment is whenever non-bloggers ask me what the point of blogging is and if I get free stuff, it makes me want to shout at them!

What are you currently reading?
I'm usually found reading Cosmopolitan, much to the disgust of my English teacher, but I'm currently reading Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov as the film with Jeremy Irons is my favourite ever.

What camera do you use for your blog?
I use the most use Canon PowerShot A810 and I hate it. Truly, it's vile and my pictures require a lot of editing until I'm happy with them.

What’s your favourite snack?
I go through little addictions, it used to be Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter Cup ice cream until it was no, longer on offer at Morrisons, now its Milky Way Magic Stars. (I have previously been addicted to Polos, Happy Hippos and Starburst.)

What is your favourite social media platform?
I used to be totally addicted to Instagram, to the point where it gave me anxiety attacks, and even wrote a post detailing my addiction, however since getting Twitter in January it has easily become my favourite and I'm hardly ever on Instagram now.

Do you prefer taking the photos for your blog or writing the content?
Actually, my favourite part is editing the photos! I love seeing dark, slightly yellowed shots become gorgeously bright, crisp blogging photos.

How would you describe your style?
I genuinely don't even know, it fully depends on how I'm feeling on the day. I've never been one for trends, so one day I'll be in a floral summer dress and the next I'll be wearing my boyfriend's hoodie and some black jeans. I do actually wish I had my own personal 'style', I'm currently trying to work out what it is.

Dogs or cats?
I am most definitely a cat person, I'm terrified of dogs. I love it when my cat chooses my bed to curl up on every day over every other bed in the house, it's just so adorable.

Are you an early bird or a night owl?
A super-duper early bird! I wke up at 7am every Saturday - I hate staying in bed longer than 8:30 as I feel like I'm wasting the day ahead. I'm always in bed by 9pm though, I'm a child!

You’re having a bad day. What lifts your spirit?
A good cup of tea - Always.

How long have you been blogging?
I first started blogging in April 2015, however I never posted regularly or promoted. I revamped my blog twice over before I ended up with my lovely Dainty Alice blog!

If money was not an issue, what is the one thing you would LOVE to do?
Go on the BIGGEST Benefit, LUSH and Too Faced shopping spree EVER, then roll around in it all ;)

Favourite chocolate?
Plain ole' Dairy Milk for me!

11 facts about ME 
(Because I'm great.)

1. I currently have blonde and blue hair and have previously had it ginger, brown, lilac and pink.
2. I have naturally rosy cheeks due to burst blood vessels in them.
3. I hate having combination skin, it makes it so difficult to find a good foundation.
4. I only wash my hair twice a week because I'm incredibly lazy
5. I have seven piercings - four lobe piercings, one helix, my nose and my navel.
6. I faint all the time - I'm incredibly squeamish and also have slightly low blood pressure, which causes the fainting.
7. I'm actually very shy and have trouble making friends
8. I hate being complimented! I go really awkward and I don't know what to say.
9. I can't stand wearing socks, if I have to then I always opt for trainer socks.
