Liebster Award 2017

Thursday, July 20, 2017

My blog turned three a few days ago (can you believe it?!) and each time over the years that I have been nominated to do the Liebster Award makes me feel so happy. It always feels amazing that someone enjoys your blog enough to nominate you, so thank you so much to Rosie for nominating me!

 A reminder of the rules:

  • Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer 11 question from the blogger who nominated you
  • Nominate 11 blogs
  • Give them 11 questions to answer

Rosie's questions for me:

1) How old are you?
Sixteen years old.

2) Where is your favourite place to be?
 Front row at a concert.

3) What is your typical takeaway order? E.G. what you get from a Chinese?
Plot twist - I don't have a typical takeaway order. Apart from a fish and chips once in a blue moon, there's just not a lot around here.

4) Favourite film?
La La Land. It makes me cry every time and the songs and story are amazing, I just love it.

5) Best place to shop online?
I don't tend to shop online that much but if I am it's probably somewhere like Hollister when they have sales on - the online sale can be so good.

6) What is your favourite smell, and why?
The smell of Christmas. You know, Christmas has that specific smell? I have a jar from the Zoella beauty Christmas range that smells just like it and it is so nice.

7) Middle name?
Grace. I feel like this isn't much of a shock for anyone who reads my blog, Twitter or Instagram...

8) Where do you see yourself in 15 years?
I would be just over thirty years old, so hopefully working as a magazine editor. I hope I'll have lived in a little flat in London with a walk-in wardrobe by that time...

9) Are you a student, what do you study? If not what is your occupation?
I am! I don't study anything right now, being the holidays, but when I return I'll be in my first year of the sixth form I will be studying English Literature, French, Modern History and Fine Art.  

10) One item of makeup you couldn't live without?
Very difficult but I think I'd go for concealer - my favourite being the L'Oreal Touche Magique one. I'd definitely be upset about parting with Velvet Teddy though.

11) Favourite city?
Of the cities I have been to, probably London or maybe Manchester since I have such great memories there and it's a great city, although I go more often so it doesn't feel special like London does.

Life In Kateish

  1. Happy third birthday! I really want to see La La Land! Heard so many good things about it.

  2. Lovely post, Erin! I love your middle name-- Grace. It's so pretty! x

  3. I studied Literature and History when I was in sixth form! I must advise you... read, read, read. Especially for literature. Try and get in some novels like 'Rebecca' and 'The Handmaid's Tale' and some Shakespeare plays. It would be so helpful as well to note down any powerful quotes relating to themes like gender, sexuality, power...etc because you'll be writing essays using these! Nothing prepared me for that massive jump up to A level ahaha so I really hope this helps you!

    It is actually amazing how far you've come with your blog at such a young age! :O It would look great on your CV when you're climbing up that magazine career ladder!

    Also, I couldn't live without Velvet Teddy either.
