Allo allo allo! So some news, I'm so touched that fellow blogger Dellilah from Dellilahs Notebook has nominated me for the Liebster Award. The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It's a great way for us new bloggers to interact, build confidence in our blogs and to discover new blogs! What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. To be nominated is such a compliment and I'm excited to start cracking on this post!
The Basic Rules
1. Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you
2. Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award onto and link them in your post
3. Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award
5. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves
6. No tag-backs!
What Dellilah asked
1. If you have £1 (a euro in my case) what's the first thing that comes to mind to buy?
I would probably g to the shop and buy a dairymilk!
2. You would love to trade places with...?
Hmmm..Grace Coddington would be cool to trade with or Lori Anne Allison (Johnny Depp's wife). Then I'd love to be one of Sir Phillip Green's daughters! :P
3. If you could do one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?
Pick and choose anything I want to wear no matter what the price is!
4. Coming to beauty, do you spend more time on your face or hair?
I'm gonna say my face. I like taking time to do my make-up. If I rush I get hot and flustered and then I just don't feel nice.
5. One key item every girl should have in her closet?
A good quality white t-shirt! Such a staple!
6. What is the reason behind your blog name?
It took me aaaages to come up with one. I looked up sites on how to come up with a name and a lot of them were really silly. I like having alliteration in a name because it's easy to remember and rolls off the tongue well. I also wanted it to connect with me personally, either include my name or a word that described me. So I came up with Lastest Lil which I suppose really means what's the Latest with Lily! Pretty appropriate!
7. If you were a singer what would you name your first album?
I hate stupid album names. I would either not give it a name at all or just call it Album no.1.
8. Is there any word you use a lot in your conversation?
Yes! I use "like" a LOT! But doesn't everyone? I imitate a lot of gangster talk too and say "Holla fo a dolla" inspired by Honey Boo Boo.
9. Which make up and clothing brand never fails you?
Make-up: I love Maybelline foundation, Benefit is my favourite brand, Barry M for nail polish and MAC for powder. Clothing: For style and originality I have to say Topshop. For quality and awesome basics American Apparel - although it's pricey it's made and produced in the U.S!
10. I would love to know is there any unusual item you own?
I actually don't. Nothing that's too out there anyway!? I have a long navy dress that I bought in a thrift shop that makes me look slightly like a nun!?
11 random acts about ME!
1. I was a total tomboy and played all sports when I was younger. I even wanted to be a boy and swore I would never EVER wear make-up or a dress.
2. I HATE blowing my nose - I've never successfully done it. Yuck.
3. The first time I EVER dyed my hair was last year and it was a balayage and I haven't looked back!
4. I turn into a complete culchie at work (a pub in the country) to talk to the local customers. Then when I'm at a dinner party with mum's acquaintances I'm all law-dee-daw dah-ling!
5. Before I decided I wanted to do fashion, I had planned on becoming an outdoor education instructor.
6. I love getting into a cold bed. Warm pillows are a no-go!
7. I crack my neck, fingers, back - anything! I know it's bad but I love doing it!
8. I like to do different accents. They're not very good but it makes everyone laugh!
9. I cried when my mum put my gold and white dress in the washing machine and all the gold came off. It was my prize dress. Waaaa
10. If someone is beside me I tend to hit or slap them when something exciting is happening. If no-one's there then it's the arm of the chair that gets it.
11. Ah the last one - I'm really bad for talking though movies/ TV shows and trying to guess the plot of a story when someone is telling it.
