Liebster Award!

Hello my beauties! So as usual, I came onto my laptop this morning after finding out my work was closed due to the snow! So, I came onto my blog to come and write to you guys and I saw Ellie (please go and check out her blog!) had nominated little old me for the Liebster Award! How cute!  

Let me tell you what this little award is all about... The Liebster Blog Award is an award for upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers! Literally translated (because I used to learn German) Liebster means dearest or favourite! Now for me this is actually so sweet, I never had even heard of this before, and it has actually made my day! (Simple things please simple minds, which I am not afraid to say!).

Update! I have now also been Nominated by my friend Steph over at Ch3rrybomb, and I will answer her questions below too!

What do you have to do?

That's probably what you are wondering, well... The rules are; List 11 Facts about yourself, Answer 11 questions which are given to you by you Nominator, Ask 11 Questions for all the bloggers you nominate for the award, Nominate 9 Bloggers pages which have less than 200 followers, go to their blog and tell them about their Nomination, and thank the blogger who nominated you by mentioning them and link it back to their blog on your post!
