Questions and Answers- The Liebster Award

Hello there lovely people!

Three days ago, I was nominated for this Liebster Award thing by my lovely friend Nixie who has a lovely blog too, (go check her out.)
These are the rules that come with it:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you & link their blog.
2. Answer the questions provided
3. Nominate other blogs for this award
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer
5. Let the nominees know

So today, I'm going to do my best to answer Nixie's questions and make up a few of my own. Hope you enjoy!

1. What is something you are passionate about? (except blogging)
Gay rights. I know our society has come a long way and gay marriage is legal in lots of country's but I still feel that some people are just not open to the changes that need to be accepted. Love is love and it shouldn't have to be defined by male and female. I'm not gay myself but it's just something I feel very passionate about.

2. What has been the best moment of 2015 so far?
There has already been so many good memories this year, but the one that sticks out the most is a house party I went to with my friends. It was just a lovely night that included good company, good food and a lot of ABBA dancing. What more could a girl want?

3. If you could change something in the world what would it be?  
 Something minor would be having school start an hour later. Sleep is my drug and I'm addicted. Getting up at 8 o'clock every morning is a real struggle so just one more hour would be bliss. In the bigger scheme of things, I would change people's opinion on one another. There is so much unnecessary hate in our world, even in my own school the word 'hate' is thrown around so freely and I don't think it's right. As Nelson Mandela said, no child is born hating another, it is something they learn. Everything would be so much better in our world if hate wasn't so evident everywhere.      

4. What piece of advice would you give to your younger self?
First of all, don't cut you hair! The bob doesn't suit you. Don't spend all your money in Penneys, don't kiss the first boy that passes your way, the right ones will come with patience. I promise. Finally, don't rush yourself to find your place in society. Your true friends will show themselves in the end. 

5. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Getting things off my mind. Before I started blogging, thoughts and ideas would cross my mind, but I'd always let them pass and forget about them. Now I have a place to develop those thoughts and ideas and make them into something for other people to read and enjoy.

6.    Favourite blog?
To be quite honest, I'm not the biggest blog reader (shock horror I know!) but I sometimes read beauty product reviews and things like that. Viviannadoesmakeup is a favourite of mine. She puts so much effort into her blog and it shows in the final product.

7. Hardest thing you have ever done?
A few things come to mind. Most recently the Junior Cert. Stress levels reached dangerous heights. I'm talking crying in Irish dangerous. (If you want to hear my tips on dealing with stress check out my blog post on how I coped.) Secondly, home sickness in the Gaeltacht. Two years ago, my first time in the Gaeltacht, I had home sickness, bad. I desperately wanted to go home by the second week. It was my first time away from home without my parents and it didn't help that the girls living with us were caught up in their own bubbles in an attempt at looking 'cool'. I still get nightmares about them girls ('dramatic shiver'). Lastly is losing the people I love. When I was young I lost two grandparents and an aunt in the space of a year. Although I don't remember it much, I do know it hit our family hard. More recently in 2010, I lost my grandad to Alzheimers. I still remember having to say goodbye to him for the last time and I regret all the things I never got to say to him.

 8. Your current favourite beauty product?
Oh, this one's tricky. I'm going to have to say the MAC lipstick I got for Christmas in 'Russian Red'. It's a beautiful statement red. The thing I love about red lipstick is that it's always in fashion and it brings a touch of class to an outfit. I immediately feel like Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe when I wear it.

9. Something that makes you really happy?
My family and friends. No doubt about it. Whether its a warm hug or a good chat about God knows what, I always have family and friends there to help me along the way. It's something I'm very grateful for. 

10. If you had to pick one word to describe your blog what would it be?
Another hard one. I'm going to be very witty with this one and say 'me'. This is because I want my blog to represent me as a person, not just what I wear or what my favourite skincare items are. That's what I'm trying to achieve anyways.

11. What is your dream job?
A journalist. It's what I hope to be when I leave school. I know it's a hard career to get into, but it's all I really want, so I'm going to do my God damn best to get it. 

So there are my answers! Now I know I'm supposed to nominate people to do this, but I'm only new on here and don't know any people who haven't done it already. So, I'm going to nominate you, reading this. You can do it on your own blog, write them down on a piece of paper or maybe just think about your answers in you head!

So here are my questions for you:

1.     What is something you would like to do/achieve by the end of 2015?

2.     If you could wear just one pair of shoes for the rest of your life what would they be?

3.     What is your pet peeve?

4.     What is the one book you really want to read?

5.     Do you prefer your birthday or Christmas?

6.     Who is the one artist you want to see live before you die?

7.     Do you prefer being with friends or having alone time?

8.     What is the one thing you would change about your school?

9.     If you had one day left to live, how would you spend it?

10. What is the meaning of your name?

11. What is your favourite childhood memory?

So that's all my questions and answering done. Hope you enjoyed this different type of post and learned a little more about me.
(P.S sorry about the weird font changes. I've tried everything to fix it and it just won't all stay the same!)

Adios amigos,
