I was lucky enough to be awarded the Leibster Award by the lovely Daisy (check out her blog here). This award celebrates the 'smaller' blogs with under 200 readers so thank you Daisy for passing the award on to me.

You have to write 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions set by the person who awarded you, create 11 questions of your own and nominate 5 blogs with a reader ship of under 200.

Here it goes :)

11 Facts about me:
I am such a typical Virgo. All the qualities a Virgo posses, I have!

I go through crazy phases of loving stuff so much until I'm sick of it. Usually its food related, like at the moment it's Brainlickers. When I say loving stuff, I mean literally obsessed with it. Its always on my mind or whatever until one day I just don't fancy it any more.

I like to have a plan of my day and know exactly what's happening in what order and at what approximate time. I have to have a plan and I can't really enjoy myself if I don't.

I love Taylor Swift.

I'm a really bad judge of character, if I meet you and dislike you pretty soon you'll probably be my best friend.

I hate missing the adverts at the cinema. If I think we're going to miss the adverts I'll make us go to a later showing.

I collect mugs from all the places I visit.

I'm crazy in love with Micheal Caine.

I cry a lot for other people, if I see emotional things on the T.V or in the paper or whatever of people going through tough things I'll start to cry. I cry so so much at films too. I cry a alot. Hardly ever because of things that are going on with me though.

I really wish I was naturally blonde or that blonde hair suited me (I've tried it, it doesn't)

I care a lot what people think of me.

11 Questions from Daisy

What did/do you study?
I study Ancient History and Egyptology joint honours

Your favourite brand of make up?
I don't really have one, I usually just buy what I see other bloggers/youtubers loving and recommending  I do have a lot of Bourjois products though, I think they are good value for money and I've not been let down by anything of theirs yet so I'll say Bourjois.

Why did you get into blogging?
I wanted a place I could write down my thoughts and experiences and adventures.

What do you work as or if you are a student?
I'm a student so don't have a full time job at the moment but I do waitress part time when I'm back home.

What do you aspire to be?
A primary school teacher :) I'm actually researching how to best get into it after gaining a degree so if anyone can help me out with that, I'd be really grateful!

What is your favourite cuisine?

Do you have a list of places to visit in your lifetime and if so where?
Yes! So many though: all of Europe, the Grand Canyon, Mount Everest, Niagara falls... everywhere, I want to see the world before I die.

What skincare products do you use? 
Erm, Simple, Liz Earle and La Roche Posay.

Favourite designer?
I really am not in to 'fashion'. I like clothes in shops and I buy them but I don't follow designers or cat walks or anything like that. All my 'inspiration' I get from reading blogs.

Love Taza!
