The Liebster Award

I’ve recently been nominated for the Liebster Award by two of my absolute favourite bloggers: my friend-of-23-years Oph√©lie of Cross My Heart And Hope To Die¬†and the cute-as-a-button Amanda who writes over at¬†amandabootes.blogspot.co.uk. Funilly enough, they seem to have asked similar questions… (maybe that says something about the kind of people I get along with! ūüėú¬†)

What is the Liebster Award?

The Liebster Award was created as a way of connecting new and more experienced bloggers and a way for newbies to make their mark into the blogosphere.

The rules: 

1- Thank and link to the people who nominated you
2- Answer the 11 questions that have been given to you
3- Nominate 11 blogs and include their link in your post.
4- Create 11 new questions for your nominees
5- Notify your nominees (blog/social media)

Oph√©lie’s questions:

1-¬†What’s your biggest dream? Having a house of my own, doing something I love for a job (any idea what I should do? HELP ME!!) and making people around me happy.
2- How do you react to failure?¬†I usually over-obsess and end up try again and again (and again) until it works (well, unless we’re talking about macaroons, in which case I do the dishes and buy a box from Ladur√©e).
3-¬†Do you have good relationships with your parents?¬†My parents are simply the best people I know and I’m so glad for the person they’ve made me. Everything I have and am, I owe it to them and one of my biggest fear is to never become as good a person, let alone a parent, as they are. Also, they’re actually coming to London next week and I couldn’t be happier.
4-¬†What’s the last book you’ve read? La Faute de l’Abb√© Mouret by Emile Zola. Yes, yes, I’m the kind of girl who actually enjoys reading classic French litterature where it takes caracters twenty pages to climb up the stairs… #TotalWeirdo
5- What’s your favourite hobby?¬†Sleeping and eating cake both rank very high on my list!
6-¬†What would you bring to a desert island?¬†A bikini seems like a must-have. Also, a BBQ and my beloved non-disposable straws. It’d be a hell of a beach party, I’m telling you!¬†ūüĆī
7- Which country do you dream to visit? Australia!
8-¬†Where do you see yourself in 15 years?¬†I honestly have no idea. But you might want to ask my boyfriend, he’s the one who makes detailled plans the next 20 years (and they all make a lot more sense than any I could ever come up with anyway).
9- Why did you start blogging? I was really just looking for a good excuse to click pictures of my food! Oh, and meeting people along the way was kind of a good surprise!
10- Are you a dog or a cat person? I never know what to answer to this one! I actually have 7 dogs at my parents but I also think I was a cat in one of my past life and still act like one from time to time (#CrazyCatLady, litterally).
11-¬†What’s your favourite icecream flavour?¬†I’d always been fairly loyal to sea salt caramel. Until I discovered The Ice Kitchen‘s Mojito Lollies. These things are THE BOMB!¬†ūüí•

Amanda’s questions:

1- Why did you start blogging? See #9 above
2- Who are you inspired by?¬†Other blogs and bloggers, books, restaurants’ dishes & menus, window displays, colours looking nice together, whatever I find in my fridge. Not necessarily in that order.
3- Celebrity crush? Eddie Redmayne, Guillaume Canet. And also Marion Cottilard, Emma Watson and Natalie Portman.
4-¬†What’s the last lie you told?¬†Most probably something along the lines of “I don’t know why I’m crying”. Or “I’ll be back in 5 minutes”.
5- Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Geographically, probably in London. For the rest, see #8 above.
6- What do your friends/family think about blogging? I have no idea.
7- If money was no object, what would you be doing?¬†Probably working in a kitchen somewhere. I’ve always been fascinated by the restaurant industry and wondered if that was something I would be able to do.
8- What has been the biggest challenge you had to face?¬†Like most people, I’m usually the only person standing in my own way. So trusting myself and realising what I do is actually worth something I suppose.
9- Cats or dogs? See #10 above
10- What 3 words would your friends use to describe you?¬†I’m fairly sure food-obsessed and social-media addicted will be among the top answers. but some of my friends might also tell you about my compulsive container buying habits…
11- If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?¬†Probably tomatoes. They’re so versatile, I never seem to¬†get bored of them.

My 11 nominees:¬†Not all of them are new but they’re all definitely worth a look/read/follow!

Broke in the Big Smoke: I met Leanne recently and she’s the loveliest person you could ever imagine. Also, she’s TONES of cheap as chips ideas to have the best time in London!

Little Miss Katy: Do I even need to introduce Katy? I don’t, do I? But I know she’ll come up with the best answers (and questions)!

Spoon Me: I discovered Molly’s blog through Twitter and I’ve been hungry ever since!

A Certain Adventure: Tamsin’s sneaky Instagram previews are definitely the main reason why I consider having a second lunch every day. Not even talking about how her blog makes me feel. (hint: HUNGRY!)

City Cookie: Did someone say cookie? (also, some of the most lovely pictures around!)

That’s So Bekaah: I don’t know the first thing about beauty stuff. I need more people like her in my life.

Isoscella: Can I please leave in that blog? I promise I’ll behave and put things back where they belong!

Too Short for High Fashion: Totally relate to that blog name! Also, major clothes envy.

Wander To Wonder: So many perfect macaroons! It -almost- makes me want to try making them again!

Pretty Hungry: If anyone can ever convince me to go somewhere, it most certainly is Bianca. Everything just looks fantastic (and delicious, obviously).

… and YOU! Yes, you, who are ready that right now! Come on, it’ll be fun!

My questions:

1- 5 things you always have in your fridge?
2- The most beautiful shoes you’ve ever seen?
3- The quality you value over every other?
4- The ultimate comfort food?
5- The website I should definitely add to my read-list?

7- Your favourite colour?
8- What do you always ask your mum to cook for you?
9- What you dream to get for your birthday?
10- What should I eat tonight?
