The Liebster Award and My Nominations

What is the Liebster Award?
It is an award that is given to a blogger by other bloggers, it is a chain and it is up to you to continue the chain by nominating other bloggers yourself. You cannot however nominate the person who nominated you.

Who can receive this?
Well over time this has been changed, and you now have to forward it on to 11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

What does it involve?
·         You first list 11 random facts about yourself
·         Then you answer the 11 questions set to you by the person who nominated you
·         You then nominate 11 blogs and set the questions you would like to ask them

I was very kindly nominated to receive this award by SashaHopeKarin J RJordanne of JordsFaith, Clare of Sparkle Blossom Beauty and Katherine of Crimson Beauty. 

11 Random Facts About Me

2.       I’ve made blogging friends on twitter and it makes me feel happy knowing that they are there, and they’re very supportive.
3.       I love Harry Potter, as does pretty much everyone!
4.       I love reading as many books as I possibly can.
5.       My first lipstick was a bright red which I thought looked so cool.
