The Liebster Award.

I will be honest, until the lovely Laura from Mint Milkshake Memories nominated me recently for The Liebster Award, I had never come across it before.

I have done a little research on the award, and it seems to be popping up on lots of blogs. The Liebster Award is a great (as well as a fun!) way to connect with and promote bloggers, as well as allowing us to get to know some more about each other! There are a few rules that come along with the award.

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you & link back to their blog (thanks again Laura!)

2. Answer the 11 questions you have been asked.

3. Nominate 11 bloggers for the award.

4. Ask them 11 questions of your own.

A massive thank you to Laura for nominating me to take part! I have been looking forward to this post going up. If you haven't already done so, make sure you pop over & say hi to her! So, onto my 11 questions Laura has asked me.

1. Have you got any holidays booked this year?

Yes! The boyfriend & I are heading back to Orlando, Florida for 3 weeks later this year. 

We first visited in 2014 and loved it. We stayed at one of the Walt Disney World resort hotels and it was amazing. 

This year, we are returning to the same Walt Disney World resort - Port Orleans French Quarter, but we also plan on staying at one of the Universal Studios hotels as well, to have more time at Universal Studios!

2. What was the last book you read?

The last book I read was H is for Hawk by Helen MacDonald.

The book tells the true story of Helen's journey of the difficult process of training her goshawk, Mabel, during her deep struggle with the grief of her father's recent death.

It is a very honest & deep account of her struggles, both with her grief & with training Mabel, and is beautifully written.

3. Chocolate or crisps?

Chocolate! Hands down. I don't find crisps anywhere near satisfying enough!

4. Top three television programmes?

The Blacklist, Madam Secretary and BBC's Sherlock.

5. What is your favourite post you've written?

As a new blogger, I haven't written too many posts & I'm still finding my feet, but so far, I think my favourite post so far has been my Photo Diary - North Antrim Coast.

It may not have as much written content, but I love the North Antrim Coast and I love taking photos, and I think the photos in this post turned out particularly well. I really enjoyed picking out my favourite photos & sharing them.

6. What do you have for breakfast?

I don't like a massive or heavy breakfast, so I usually start the day with a bowl of muesli.

7. Is there something you love that most people dislike?

This might be an odd answer, but a lot of people I know don't get diced carrots in spaghetti bolognese. I really like it! Am I the only one?

8. Do you do anything to stay fit?

To be honest, I don't go out of my way - I am not a member of a gym or anything.

But I do love outdoor adventures & and walks through woods and along the coast, and normally on a Sunday you can find me exploring a quiet trail with my boyfriend.

9. If you had to be an animal, what would you be and why?

Definitely a dog! So I can live with my mum and be spoilt rotten, like she does with their dogs!

10. Are you more of a night clubbing or Netflix-binging person?

Most definitely a Netflix-binging person! I love a good TV show, and to be honest, my night clubbing days are long gone! I like my creature comforts too much now!

11. Can you tell me one interesting fact about yourself?

Hmmm. I have had to really think about this one. For some reason I always struggle with these types of questions!

Probably interesting for all the wrong reasons, but I have a serious fear of balloons! I hate them!
