A Liebster Award for Number Twenty Six.



Ever heard of the Liebster award? It's basically a recognition award for new bloggers awarded by new bloggers! It's a great way of building up your network of readers as well as finding new blogs to read. I was nominated by the lovely KC from Kaycee Creates - see her post here. She asked me to answer the following questions.

1. WHAT IS YOUR BLOG PET HATE?
If I'm honest I don't really have a major one that pops into my head. I think it's because the blogging world is so friendly and everyone is just doing something they love - there shouldn't be any rights or wrongs in what you do as your blog is your own little space on the internet. Having said that, I do find it really annoying when you follow a blogger on Twitter and you get an automatic DM asking you to read their blog - this totally lacks a personal touch and more often than not, I won't read the blog.

2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DIY POST TO DATE? 
Oooh so many to choose from. Can I have two?! 
I'm still in absolute awe of how well Toby did creating our decking. Now we just need some nice weather so we can sup prosecco and eat bbq food on it! Now for a DIY post that I actually did myself - my upcycled TV cabinet. I've turned this little beauty into a cupboard with a pop of colour - definitely my favourite furniture piece in the house. 

3. IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
Hmmm to stop time?! There's so many things I want to do, projects I want to start and places I want to see but just not enough time to cram it all in alongside working full time. I'd love to be able to stop time for a couple of hours here and there where I can just sit and write blog posts and paint furniture and love life before the weekend is over and I'm back at work! 

4. WHAT SPARKS YOUR CREATIVITY? 
All sorts of things! I've always been quite a creative person, I love the achievement of transforming something from it's original state to something amazing. I would much prefer to upcycle something or make it myself than buy it from the shop! In terms of inspiration, I enjoy browising Instagram and Pinterest for ideas, as well as just going out and exploring new places.

5. DO YOU HAVE ANY PHOTO STYLING TIPS? 
I'm still getting to grips with my photography skills so I am no real expert but I find that lots of natural light is good. If I'm taking photos of objects, I really like crisp, white backgrounds to make them stand out! 

Now for the best bit, to award the blog to some other new bloggers. My nominations are Sophie from Shy Life Living and Harriet Jackson. Both are fellow North East blogger's although Harri is currently living in France as part of her uni course. Sophie's blog is so well presented and beautiful. I particularly like her heartfelt, personal, lifestyle posts which are very honest and inspiring to people who might be coping with similar issues. Harri is a new blogger only in the first few weeks of blogging but already I'm hooked on her posts about the different country's she has visited and the photo's she's taken of these places! Both definitely worth a follow! 

So, here are my questions for you ladies... 

1. Standard question but interesting nonetheless - what made you start blogging?
2. What do you want readers to get from your blog?
3. Do you have any photography tips to share?
4. Where is the best place you have traveled to and why? 
5. If you could travel anywhere, money no object, where would you choose and why?

Looking forward to reading Sophie and Harri's posts and seeing more people receive the Liebster Award!
