Liebster Award

I feel quite honoured being given a Liebster award from Sammie over at littleblondelife with my blog being so young (almost two weeks old!) and having so little followers. It honestly makes me feel good knowing that people are reading my blog and enjoying my posts!

Having found different rules for the Leibster award, I think I'll settle with these ones:

"Here are the rules for receiving this award:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!"

So here we go:

1. I'm really into Chinese culture and I am currently learning Mandarin. Also, my fiance is Chinese and we are due to get married in 7 weeks and go back to China for our honeymoon.
2. I have a pet cat called Chii, although I'm really not a cat person.
3. I suffer quite badly with anxiety, I think that's why it's taken me years to start my blog.
4. My favourite colour is turquoise although people probably think it's pink
5. Over the past two years my hair has been more than 10 bright colours.
6. My favourite TV series of all time has to be Lost.
7. I've been a student of the Open University for two years and I'm studying a BA in Humanities.
8. I also work full time, and really enjoy my job!
9. I can be found most days living in Vans or Converse.
10. I used to be emo/scene in my late teens/early twenties.
11. My favourite band are Funeral for a Friend, I'm a metal/emo fan!

These are the questions from Sammie:

1. What was your new years resolution? I never make them as I never keep them.
2. Where is your favourite place on earth? I really love Thailand's beaches!
3. What is your most loved item of clothing? I have a few dresses from Primark I absolutely adore but I change my wardrobe too often to have a 'most loved' piece.
4. What is the most expensive thing you have bought? Probably my Chanel quilted bag.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change? Probably my clothes size, I've always been a little unconfident about my weight but I've faced up to the fact I will never be a size 10!
6. What job did you want to have when you were little? I always pictured myself as a stand up comedienne or interior designer.
7. What is your favourite food? I love Chinese! Anything Chinese!
8. What is your first memory? Feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square with my brother when I was 3.
9. If you had to shop in one shop only for the rest of your life, what would it be? Primark, definitely. I always seem to be able to find great bargains there.
10. Do you have any pets? Yep, a cat. But I've had pet rats and dogs.
11. Finish this sentence: I blog because... gives me an outlet to rant about what I like, and I can share my idea of fashion and beauty with the world :)

My questions are:
1. What is your perception on beauty?
2. Who do you idolise?
3. What made you decide to blog?
4. How do you feel your blog has evolved?
5. Do you still have ambitions/aspirations for your life?
6. Did you pursue education after school?
7. What animal would represent you?
8. Who is your favourite music artist?
9. What is your favourite print/pattern?
10. What was your most recent beauty purchase?
