The Liebster Blog Award :)

Today I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by two fellow bloggers. This just made my day! I am very new to the blogging world, so for another blogger to think about me as a nominee for this award is appreciated. I can't believe how supportive other bloggers are out there. I was nominated first by Elysia from Little Beauty Blog and Nikki from Heaven Has Cupcakes. Thanks girls :)

For those of your who are not familiar with the Leibster Blog Award, it is a nomination from another person who enjoys your blog and wants to show it some love.

Questions from Little Beauty Blog:

1) If you could have any job in the world what would it be?
Well I would love to be doing PR for some sort of business someday...or wedding planning.
2) On average, how long do you spend on each of your blog features?
Oh my gosh...this depends. Some days I spend hours on my blog; other days I spend a few minutes writing up a post. If I have nothing to do, I will devote more time to my blog. 
3) There's a famous saying 'if at first you don't succeed, try and try again'. Do you agree with this or do you admit defeat easily?
I get discouraged easily, but I usually just back on the bandwagon eventually. Like blogging--I've had a few blogs that haven't done well in the past so I give up, but I keep coming back. This time I succeeded, so i'm sticking with it. 
4) What is your favourite item of clothing?
I have two--my black sweater that goes over everything, and my brown riding boots. 
5) Blogging can open up a lot of new doors and present a blogger with new opportunities. If you have a goal for your blog, what is this? What would you most like to happen as a result of you blogging?
I would love to blog and do social networking for a company and this is wonderful practice. It's also a goal to have devoted followers who truly care about my blog. 
6) I love jewelry, especially rings; if you could only wear one item of jewelry what would it be and why? (or if you don't wear jewelry; why do you choose not to?) 
I wear my promise ring and my cross necklace everyday. My ring is from my boyfriend and my necklace is from my Nana.
7) If you could only choose one makeup brand that's in your makeup bag right now, which one would you choose?
 This is hard! Probably Clinique. I love their products. 
8) I find that I am forever looking at expensive designer bags and saving up for them. What makes you want to splurge your money? 
MAKEUP! This is an issue for me. 
9) I always like reading about and finding out about new products - what is the best product you purchased last month and why?
 Probably my Clear shampoo and conditioner. I just got it yesterday and my hair feels AMAZING. Try it :)
10) If you go on holiday anywhere in the world where you would you choose and why?
Ireland. I'm Irish and would love to see where I came from. 
11) I love sweets (in moderation); what if your favourite treat and why?
I have a guilty pleasure for Lindt truffles.
