Awards

A Second and Third Liebster Award

Hi readers!

I was quite surprised yesterday when I noticed a mention on Twitter from Sarah Burnett, blogger at Glowbeautifulblog, saying she was nominating me for the Liebster Award…. That’s my second nomination!
Thank you very much Sarah, your nomination is really appreciated.
*Update*
What surprised me more was that within a few hours of posting this post, I’d had another Liebster Award nomination from With Mummy Love! As this was only posted a few hours prior to receiving my nomination from With Mummy Love, I’ll just update this post with the questions I’ve been asked.

Just like last time there are rules for the Liebster Award. You have to thank the blogger who nominated you, display the award on your blog, answer a set of 11 questions provided by the blogger who you were nominated by, post 11 random facts about yourself, nominate 11 blogs with less than 1000 followers and then create a set of questions for your nominations to answer.

So the next thing for me to do is answer the set of 11 questions that Sarah provided me.

Questions from my nominators:

 

Questions from Glowbeautifulblog:

 

1. What inspires you the most?
This may sound really sad, but my fiancé has inspired me the most. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be blogging right now. I am so thankful to him for everything he has ever done for me and everything I know he will continue doing. I’m proud to say that one day I will be his wife and hopefully mother to his children.
2. What’s your favorite food?
I have always been a big fan of pasta but I think my favourite food is a local dish from where I live called Grey Peas and bacon. Its local comfort food. I’ve mentioned it in another blog post.
3. What do you like to do in your spare time, besides blogging?
I spend a lot of my spare time enjoying my hobbies like stamp collecting or playing video games. I also like writing letters to penpals.
4. Do you have any pets?
Yes! My fiancé and I have a little pet rabbit called Fudge. She is roughly 20 weeks old now.
5. What is your dream vacation?
My fiancé and I have always wanted to go to Italy. The food and the architecture are amazing.
6. How long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging in February 2016, so not long at all!
7. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
In 5 years time, I hope to be married and hopefully have a child and a pretty successful blog. I want to be the best person I can be.
8. What is your favorite colour?
My favourite colour is purple.
9. You are stranded on a desert island, you can only have 3 objects. What would they be?
Wow, hard question…Does it have to be objects? If it does, I’d have to say my phone, my tall stuffed Eeyore for company and photos of my loved ones… but if I could, I would take my fiancé with me 

10. Sweet or Savoury?

For me, that really depends on the mood I’m in. I’ll be a sweet girl one day but the next I won’t have a sweet tooth at all and I’m all about savoury.
11. What is your greatest achievement?
I feel like the achievement I am most proud of are my gold medals and trophies I won for my swimming.

Thank you for your list of questions Sarah, they have really given me a good think…especially the desert island question!

Questions from With Mummy Love:

1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? 
Basically the same answer as in my questions from Sarah… “I hope to be married and hopefully have a child and a pretty successful blog. I want to be the best person I can be.”

2. What inspired you to write your blog?
It’s something I’ll always say, my fiancé inspired me to write my blog. Its something that has always interested me to do but I was a bit reluctant. I didn’t think I’d have very much to say or I wouldn’t fit into the community somewhere. With his encouragement, I decided to set up Nikkipedia. I’ll always be thankful to him for helping me be me and be a better person.

3. What’s your favourite season?
I think my favourite season is Spring. The flowers are starting to bloom and its a beautiful season.

4. What’s your favourite holiday destination?
Definitely Newquay in Cornwall…I love it there. I hadn’t been until I went with my fiancé and his family in 2006.

5. Do you have children?
No, not yet, but I hope to some time in the future.

6. What’s your favourite film?
Three of my top favourite films are Grease, Dirty Dancing and Labyrinth

7. Do you work? And do you enjoy it?
Does blogging count as work? If so, I enjoy it. I’m a fully trained and qualified chef but I’m currently out of work.

8. Are you in a relationship?
Yes, I’ve been in a relationship with my fiancé for over 10 years now.

9. Where’s your summer holiday this year?
We usually take our summer holiday in the same place that is my favourite holiday destination, Newquay in Cornwall.

10. What’s your favourite drink?
There are a lot of drinks that I love, such as coffee, cappuccino, Pepsi Max etc, but if I had to pick a favourite I’d probably go for cream soda.

11. What’s your favourite makeup brand?
I love Collection 2000 (I think its changed just to Collection now) but I’m currently trying new brands and new types of makeup I’ve never used before.

Thank you for your questions too, With Mummy Love! I’ve really enjoyed answering them.

I’m not going to post 11 random facts about me, only because I did my 25 Random Facts About Me post a few days ago so I’m just going to link you to there.
