Liebster Award Nomination


I’ve been nominated by the wonderful Emily Walker. To do the LIEBSTER AWARD so here goes!

The point of the LIEBSTER AWARD is to help new blogs (200 followers or less but can be anyone you want). This is to get their name out there and to help them a bit, this also shows why I was nominated and I’m grateful for that so Thanks!(:

The rules are- when you get nominated:

1) Answer the questions sent to you
2) Nominate 11 bloggers
3) Ask them 11 questions thought of by yourself
4) Notify them that they have been nominated

If I haven’t nominated you please feel free to comment on your answers because I want to know what you would put!

Here are the questions I was asked:


1.Who or what inspired you to start blogging and why?

I started blogging for my business to start with and then quickly realised I really enjoy blogging. It’s great having clients come in and ask me questions about places I have blogged about in Norwich or on holiday. I love doing product reviews, but I’m always secretly worried that I will be sent a rubbish product in the post and have to do an honest review. I hate upsetting people even if I don’t know them. I also find it great to hear when people/ companies I blog about get custom from my blogging. I have had some really lovely thank you emails from other businesses around Norwich.

2.When was the last time you laughed so hard that it hurt and what was it? (if you don’t mind sharing)

My little 3-year girl Jessica daily! This week she told me that it is her homework to watch the Minions movie! (Despicable Me)

3.What are your pet peeves and why?

People parking in child/ parent spaces at the shops or parking too close. Never used to notice how annoying this was until I needed to get a child out of a car seat! Also parking too high up on the curb, so I have to push the pushchair out onto the road to get pass.

4.What type of music do you enjoy listening to or to sing along to?

Mostly listen to children’s music at the moment. Anyone know a child-friendly station we can put on when Jessica is about?

5. Star Wars or Star Trek? Which geek are you?

Star Wars

6.What is your favourite memory and tell us why that is?

Hundreds of awesome memories from my travels and from my little girl. Too hard to answer. Jessica being born, getting married, seeing the sunrise in New Zealand with my two favourite people… list is endless! I feel very lucky.

Jessica – 1 day old
Wedding day

7.Hidden talents? What can you do that not many other people can do?

Ummm can’t think of one! haha Not sure what this says about me…

8.Do you have any weird phobias or any phobias for that matter?

I used to be mildly afraid of ants until a random Australian tour guide made me lick a green ant, which helped me over come it. Poor little thing. Tasted like lemons. I am still quite disturbed she ate it afterwards.

9.If you were able to pick your name, what would you choose and why?

I quite like my name, so would probably be boring and pick the same.

10.Are you mostly a clean or messy person? How tidy is your room?

I am mostly clean… Jessica and Andy however aren’t. They might say different, but they would be lying.

11.What the one rule you preach but never practice?

Telling Jessica to say please and thank you all the time. I only use those words when I think they are actually needed not the British way in every sentence!
