Liebster Award


I'm really excited to share with you guys that Fifty-Shades of Blonde has now been nominated for the Liebster Award by four different people! I'm really grateful for my nominations and that these bloggers have taken the time to recognise my blog. The Liebster Award is a great way to connect new blogs together and also have it shared with others. 

 The wonderful bloggers have to thank are:

Karelian Va De Sype @ http://thefashionandbeautystarter.weebly.com/home/
Sam Bugeja @ www.beautifie.com
Emma Osman @ http://justaswild.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/liebster-award.html
StyleChat Blog @ https://stylechatblog.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/liebster-award/

Unfortunately I'm doing this post from Cyprus on my iPad so links to the blogs above probably won't work, however just copy and paste it into the web instead and give these blogs a look at! Anyway here's the answers to my latest set of questions from StyleChat Blog...

1) WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I've always enjoyed reading other peoples blogs and one day it occurred to me why don't I start my own. Well that was this time last year and it never really took off, I did the odd /very random post here and there but didn't stick to it. I've only really been blogging properly for about a month but I'm loving doing it and hopefully can make a go of it this time round. 

2) WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU MOST? 
I'm always inspired by everything around me, from magazines to buildings and architecture. I keep a folder of images, articles and pretty much anything I find interesting. I mainly use this for Uni work but it does come in handy for blogging too. I also find Pinterest and Instagram useful. 

3) WHAT SONG MAKES YOU DANCE NO MATTER WHAT? 
At the moment this has to be Mr Probz- Waves. My boyfriend has a shameful video of me dancing around the kitchen to this! My dancing is pretty tragic but to be fair to myself I didn't realise I was being filmed.   

4) WHATS THE TREND YOU ABSOLUTELY HATE OR DON'T UNDERSTAND? 
Off the top of my head I don't really have any trends that I really hate.

5) FILL THE BLANK : KEEP ME AWAY FROM THE ......... SECTION OF THE STORE OR MY BANK BALANCE WILL HATE ME IN THE MORNING. 
My Answer, keep me away from ANY section of the store, I love buying new things, whether that be clothes, shoes or bags! I have quite expensive taste so that really doesn't help my bank balance although I'd like to think that normally I'm quite sensible with money... 

6) COSMETIC SURGERY YAY OR NAY 
YAY: anyone that knows me well enough will know that for years I've wanted a nose job, I have an awful side profile and is something I desparetly want to change. That one of the only things, apart from also getting my teeth straightened (again) if you can count that as cosmetic surgery. 

7) WHO IS YOUR DREAM WEDDING DRESS DESIGNER? 
Vera Wang, her dresses are so beautiful 

8) HOW DO YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? 
I wouldn't really know how to describe my style because it changes every day! 

9) WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE OUTFIT TO LOUNGE AROUND IN ON A LAZY DAY OFF WORK?
I have recently purchased some loose fit patterned trousers from Primark and these are great for lounging around. Lazy days don't really happen that often for me but I'd say the favourite is probably just simple leggings and a baggy t-shirt / jumper. 

10) WHATS THE ONE THING YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO DO? 
I'd really love to learn how to do make up and hair professionally, for my own benefit and also to help others. 

11) DO YOU DO MORE SHOPPING ONLINE OR IN PERSON? 
A bit of both really. In a way I prefer to actually see/try an item before I buy it so in that sense shopping in the high street is much easier, you also don't have to pay for delivery and returns which on some websites can really sting you. However I do find with onlind shopping there's so much more variety, I'm a big fan of ASOS and with VIP treatment of next day (free) delivery you can't really go wrong.
