Liebster award take 2......and 3


I have the honour of saying I have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award not only for a second but for a third time, oooh I could rival Daniel Day Lewis in his Oscar awards! Get me ;)

I was previously nominated  by Georgia at Concept of Budd and rather than repeat the whole award again, you can read my original post/answers here. But instead of doing the full post again, what I am going to do is answer the questions given to me by the very lovely Sascha at Coffee and Heels and the very lovely Beth at Beth Writes Beauty

So here goes, my questions from Sascha:

1. Where were you born?
In the capital city of our fair land
2. If you HAD to choose, for the rest of your life: flats or heels?
Would have to be flats, as much as I love my heels I do spend the majority of my time in flats.
3. What places do you dream of visiting?
Oh so many places. There is a lot of the states I have yet to see and really want to including New York, Connecticut, Boston, Wilmington, Portland, the list for the USA goes on and on. There is more of Australia I would like to see, New Zealand, Sweden, more of Italy, Portugal, parts of Africa
4. What's your favourite dessert?
I don't know if I can just choose one! I guess I would say trifle, it has all the things I love.
5. Favourite movie(s)?
Again hard to choose, I like many for many different reasons, but if I had to wittle it down, I would say It's A Wonderful Life and To Kill A Mockingbird for the social lessons and Dirty Dancing as it reminds me of being a giddy 16 year old
6. What do you love about blogging?
'Meeting' and reading some amazing blogs by some amazing people
7.  What did you dream of being when you were growing up?
A hairdresser
8. What trend or item of clothing would you NEVER wear?
Well when you hit my age, you have to be really careful what you wear! But I would probably say denim shorts over tights - I am waaayyyyy too old for that!
9. What's your favourite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?
Really depends what time of year it is, if it's summer I love nothing better than pottering in my garden. At this time of year, curled up in front of a great film or reading a book is probably where you will find me.
10. Who's your celebrity crush?
I do love a bit of the Clooney - hubba hubba
11. Describe your blog in three words!
(These were the first 3 words which came into my head!) 
My questions from Beth:
 1. If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life what would it be?
Probably tinted moisturiser as it covers a multitude of sins! 
2.What's your top 3 favourite films?
As mentioned above, I will go with It's A Wonderful Life, To Kill A Mockingbird and Dirty Dancing  
3. Do you have any bad habits?
Me? Never! Mr B.P. would probably say nagging! lol I would say none of my habits are bad ha ha
4. Be honest, do you fancy a bit of the Biebs?
Ewww no, I am old enough to be his Mum!
5. Maxi skirts or mini skirts?
Maxi all.the.way. 
6. What's your favourite part of blogging?
 'Meeting' and reading some amazing blogs by some amazing people 
7. Who or where do you look to for style inspiration?
Humm tricky one, as I'm not 100% sure. I don't follow any particular fashion blogs or read fashion rags so I would just say I tend to follow the trends for each season and adapt the trends for my shape and age and likes
8. Early bird or nocturnal owl?
Well my alarm clock and I are not the best of friends! but I would say early bird. When it gets past 10pm my bed is calling for me 
9. What was your favourite cartoon growing up?
Mary, Mungo and Midge (the majority of you reading this will have to go and google this as it was way before your time ha ha) 
10. Which book has affected you the most?
To Kill A Mockingbird for sure. Reading it for english at school, it has stayed with me right through adulthood 
11. What song would be the theme tune of your life?
Always look on the bright side of life

So thank you Sascha and Beth for nominating me and for those reading this post, if you haven't checked out these lovelies and their blogs before what are you waiting for?! Go and check them out NOW!

  2. Well done on your awards x
    I love wearing heels occasionally definitely a flats girl! I want to go to NYC and Marlborough in NZ - so I can sample the sauvignon blanc ;) and I loved Mary, Mungo and Midge and bagpuss and To Kill a Mocking Bird is one of my fav books - first read in school x

    1. Oooh if you go to Marlborough pack me in your suitcase could you, I love NZ wine :D x

  3. Well done Kay! Me + hubby went to New York and Boston as part of our honeymoon - amazing - would love to go back someday! Flats girl these days too (no idea how I used to walk in those high stilettoes back in the day!). I wanted to be a hairdresser too but it never happened. Good grief - Mary Mungo and Midge takes me back! xx

    1. Gotta love a bit of Mary Mungo and Midge ;) Oh I would love to go to Boston, there is so much of the east coast I would like to see. I fancy staying at Richard Gere's B+B in Westchester *sigh*, something else to add to the bucket list! x

  4. Always look on the bright side of life - mine too! Alotbsol X
