For those of you who have been confused up to this point, the LBA is an award given to new bloggers by other bloggers, meant to recognise their work and encourage them further. It works like a chain email: get an award and pass it on. The three rules are:


1. Answering the 11 questions Ellie has set me


2. Listing 11 facts about myself


3. Nominating 11 blogs with under 300 followers for the award, and setting them 11 questions

The Liebster Blog Awards: My Answers and Facts

1. Future ambitions for your blog?

When I move to London in September, I’d really like to show everything I do and everywhere I go on my blog, so it can become an important source of information and ideas for Londoners and tourists.

2. Favorite Disney film?

I have two: Dumbo and Tangled. Two very different movies made 70 years apart!

3. Favorite drugstore cosmetics brand?

Definitely Urban Decay, I love all their palettes, and their primers work wonders.

4. What made you start blogging?

It was actually my job! I was working as an SEO Analyst for an online retailer, and as a result I spent a lot of time linkbuilding with fashion and lifestyle blogs. Seeing all these beautiful and interesting blogs made me want to start my own.

5. Favorite season?

Spring :) Days getting longer and warmer, flowers blooming, starting your holiday planning…

6. How do you stay organised?

My friends and relatives could answer this one for me: LISTS! I am a compulsive list maker, and can only end my day when every item on every list has been crossed off!

7. Favorite song?

Hard to pick just one! But at the moment it’s Ellie Goulding’s “Burn”. I love her singing voice, and this song just makes me so happy.

8. Favorite clothing item?

My skinny black jeans that I basically pair with everything. Or my black leather jacket, the most expensive item of clothing I own and the one I must enjoy wearing.

9. Favorite colour?

Yellow :) Almost everything I own is yellow, my room back home is painted yellow and my favorite flowers are sunflowers!

10. What is your horoscope sign?

I am a very proud Leo! :)

11. Favorite childhood memory?

Tough one! Probably a class trip to Spain when I was 13.
