Song Spirit & Soul: Liebster Awards

I feel so honored as a new blogger, that I've been nominated for a Liebster award. Thanks to the lovely Louise Robertson, who you can find here.

Being nominated me being me I thought I would do a little research. After google searchng 'Liebster award' many bloggers posts came up, but one in particular stood out as to the origin of the award on Sopphey's Says'. Pretty cool indeed, I see this almost like a tag on Youtube for instance.

 So here goes my 11 answers to Louise Robertson's questions:

1. Why did you start blogging?
I stared blogging initially for uni as one of my modules required us to blog. But I thought why not share this with actual real people instead of creating something for uni alone. I quickly fell in love with blogging, I enjoy sharing my life as a student, food lover and a creative through my Song, Spirit & Soul blog posts. Every reader means alot and puts a smile on my face :)

2. How long does it take you get ready in the morning?
1-1.5 hours on a usual day for uni, but if it is a night out or a special occasion I like to take my time. Play some music, and get ready in a leisurely way, you know.

3. Describe yourself in 5 words
Quick witted, quiet, caring, day dreamer, optimist.

4. Favourite place you've ever been on holiday?
This is a tricky one! I've been to many places but in terms of culture and somewhere I'm DYING to go back to is Cuba. But Last summer my friend and I went to St Lucia and it was beautiful! We played carnival aka mas there and had a great wild old time. 

5. Most expensive item you've ever bought?
This is a tricky one too hmmm. Buying tickets to St Lucia along with our costumes and accommodation was pretty expensive! But item wise a cross between my 160 GB Ipod Classic or  hair..cringe. Good curls do cost money lol.

6. Who is your celebrity crush?
Celebrity crush....this would have to be Michael Ealy. He's taken now sigh. 

7. What book are you currently reading?
I'm currently reading 'Seven Spiritual Laws for Success'- Deepak Chopra, and finishing off Joyce Meyer's 'Living Beyond your Feelings'. 

8. Favourite song at the moment?
There's so many! But if I had to choose one it would be. Drum roll please!  'Part II (On the Run)'' -Jay Z ft Beyonce

9. Favourite makeup brand?
MAC all the way. I love their studio sculpt concealer (NC43) and their Mineralize Skin Finish (Dark)

10. Who inspires you?
I'd have to say my mother, she inspires me as a strong independent loving and kind woman.

11. One item you can't live without?
Some sort of recording device. I guess I'd choose my iphone. Yep. As a songwriter and musician I need to record ideas anywhere I go. Nothing like forgetting great ideas! 

I really enjoyed this. I guess now I have to choose some fabulous bloggers to do this tag also.
