The Liebster Award

I was recently nominated for this awesome thing called the Liebster Award!  So thank you so much Emily from Life of Em for nominating me!

What is the Liebster Award?
Well, from what I've seen, the Liebster Award is an award to new bloggers with under 200 followers.  It's a way for people to discover new blogs and to get to know a little bit about the blogger.  I think of it like the blogging version of the ice bucket challenge (which I refuse to do).  Apparently, according to my nominator, Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, lovely, pleasent and valued.  So it seems to be a pretty nice award to receive.

Here are the rules for this award...
  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  2. Answer the 11 questions they set you
  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers to win the award (they must have under 200 followers and it cannot be the person you nominated you)
  4. Set them 11 questions to answer then contact them explaining the instructions
I guess it's time to answer the questions...

1. When did you start your blog?
I started it last Thursday while I was sick, which was the 21st of August.  Had it for about 6 days now.  Almost a week ;)

2. If you could meet one person in the world who would it be and why?
Uhmmm... I think I'm going to go with Barrack Obama, cos he's the president of America and all...

3. Reason behind your blog name?
I called my life 'The Life of Little Me' because this blog reflects my life, or bits of it anyway.  I just like sharing the stuff I'm interested in and enjoy doing, and some of the pessimistic stuff going on in my head.  I can be pretty honest.

4. Favourite way to relax?
Watching a movie or having a TV show marathon while eating some good old unlimited junk food <3

5. Where do you usually blog?
Well, I'm blogging from my laptop.  I usually do it from my desk in my room but sometimes I'll be on the couch or the dining table.  Who knows?  I can guarantee I will never blog on the toilet though...

6. Favourite high street store?
If I'm being completely honest here, I don't really know what a high street store is.  I'm guessing you're referring to Louis Vuitton and Chanel and stuff?  They're all great (and expensive) and I love gushing at their amazing stuff.  I'm just going to name one of my favourite clothes shops as an answer instead, and that's Valleygirl.

7. Favourite music artist?
I love Taylor Swift and all, but at the moment my favourite is probably either Beyoncé, Adele or Katy Perry.

8. Where do you see your blog in 5 years?
Hmmm... I'm hoping it still exists first of all.  I guess I expect to see many posts on my life and thoughts, and I hope to have built up on some readers I guess.  So go follow if you're reading this.  ;) ;)

9. What is your favourite topic to blog about?
I don't really know yet, seeing as I haven't had my blog for long enough.  I guess it's probably my personal issues going on in my head, because blogging seems pretty therapeutic in a way.

10. Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter and why?
Instagram definitely!  It's where I do most of my social media stalking.  Wow that sounded creepy.  Haha don't worry.  I like the pictures as I go so they know what I'm doing.

11. Why did you start blogging?
Well, my friend started a blog and showed me, and I thought it looked fun so I made one too.  I wanted to share some of my thoughts and experiences, just like she was.  So thank you J.  I've nominated you below. :)

  1. Love this post M ! Thanks for nominating me!:DD <3

    1. No prob <3. Love your new profile pic

  2. Thanks for nominating me!!!!!!

  3. Good answers! Thanks for the comment on my blog-I just found yours and followed right away! (Mind following back?)


  4. This is such a great feature - I love finding out more about other bloggers! Congratulations on your (almost) one-week anniversary, and on having so many followers already. I know I didn't have 11 GFC followers after a week. I'm a Taylor Swift fan too (although I prefer her older songs to what she's producing now) and I agree that blogging can be therapeutic (although it can also stress me out).

    1. Haha. I'm a bit persistent. And thanks! I love Taylor Swift's old songs too! The reason I didn't put her as my favourite is because of her new song... or what I've heard of it anyway.

  5. ahh this is such a great idea!

  6. Amazing answers, loved it! And you've got totally adorable design! :))

  7. Cool answers! Love your blog!!!:D
    I tagged you for the Summer Rewind!


    1. Thanks so much!! But unfortunately it's winter going on spring where I am...

  8. Cool answers!
    Funny though, most people here in the U.S don't want to meet our president. Which I don't see why a whole bunch of people don't like him. I mean it's the president! I'm sure every country has that problem. But I would really like to meet him some day, I think it'd be cool. But then I'm easy going like that.

    1. Aha yeah you're probably right about every country having that problem. I certainly don't wanna meet my prime minister. But Barrack just sounds cool ;) And saying you've met him makes you sound super important.
