Leibster Award

I've seen this award floating around the internet and was recently nominated for it by the lovely Kim and Kyle from Kim+Kyle - check out their post here. It's really more of a tag than an award and the first I've been tagged for so I'm pretty excited for this post, thankyou Kim and Kyle for nominating me!

> Thank the blogger who nominated you.
> Write 11 random facts about yourself.
> Answer the questions they set you.
> Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to answer your own set of questions.

11 Facts About Me
1) I am a vegetarian and have been for so long I can't even remember the taste of meat.
2) I hate being called Ellie. The only people I allow to are my boyfriend and my little brother.
3) I am the most clumsy, careless person you'll meet. I've electrocuted myself with hair straighteners and lost countless keys and phones.
4) I got a phone for my birthday a few years ago as a replacement to the one I'd previously lost. I lost it 9 days later.
5) I never had braces. I have a gap inbetween my front teeth and could have had it closed up but I didn't. I actually like it. I think it gives me character. Plus going through months of braces for something so minor? No thanks.
6) I have central heterochromia (a yellow ring around the pupil of my eyes).
7) I sing along to the theme songs of every TV show that has one with lyrics.
8) I sometimes randomly feel the need to bake...and it's always cupcakes.
9) I have an older half brother on my father's side and a younger half brother on my mother's side so I'm the eldest, youngest and middle child all at once.
10) If I'm nervous about something I'll practice conversations in my head before I have them and replay the conversation in my head after it's occurrence, imagining what would have happened if I'd said what I now wish I had in retrospect.
11) I have pyjama days more often than I should.

1) What/ Who inspired you to start blogging?
I read a few blogs, like Zoella's and wanted to feel like I was doing something productive on pyjama days and in the Summer holidays, during which time I'll likely be doing very little.
2) What is the very thing you must always have?
My phone. It feels weird going out without it! You're whole life is on your phone.
3) What do you want be when you're older?
I want to work with younger children, preferably as a primary school teacher, and will hopefully be training to do so soon.
4) What is your favourite Starbucks drink?
A Mocha or a Mocha Frappuccino Light with whipped cream! Nom! I have a very sweet tooth.
5) What do you prefer? Summer or Winter?
I can't stand the heat of Summer as I'm completely intolerant to it and it makes me feel ill. Therefore, I prefer the Winter and really love the snow. I do love the light in Summer though, which makes everything look more beautiful and I love that the days last longer.
6) Who do you look up to in terms of fashion?
There's no one person. I'm inspired and influenced by everyone around me in regards to fashion as well as everything else in life.
7) Are you a Math wiz or a Science wiz?
Oh gosh, neither. I did fairly well in both of them at GCSE but have completely failed my Biology A Level. I do not at all have a scientific or mathematic brain, I much prefer English and History than cold facts.
8) Who is your favourite YouTuber?
Klaire de Lys. Her makeup tutorials may not be wearable but they're so creative and beautiful and unlike the majority of YouTube makeup tutorials, which all seem to be rather similar
9) What is your nationality?
I'm English.
10) Where do you live?
Unsurprisingly I live in England.
11) Do you prefer jeans or shorts?
Both! Obviously it depends on the season.

  11. Congrats on the award! It's so fun getting to know other bloggers. I had a gap too in between my 2 front teeth when I was kid, and I could have got it fixed but didn't. I have a small mouth so it ended up closing as I got older!
