Liebster Award!

Hi everyone,

Recently I was nominated by two lovely bloggers- Aisling from Total Make-Up Addict and Avril from Blushful Beauty for a Liebster Award. I have been nominated before, but it's always lovely to receive a nomination nonetheless! :)

These are the rules as follows:

1. Nominate 11 up and coming or new bloggers (with less than 200 followers).
2. Divulge 11 random things about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions that the person who nominated you asked.
4. Tell the bloggers you have nominated and ask them to complete the same process with the 11 questions you set out.

11 Random Facts about myself

1. I'm a type 1 diabetic and have been since I was 9.
2. I'm really really shy when in big crowds of people, and tend to get really anxious.
3. I have been obsessed with makeup for as long as I can remember! Always playing with mammys makeup when I was younger!
4. I have been dieting pretty much for most of my adult life. I've always battled with weight issues, but am finally getting a handle on things :)
5. I'm currently studying Music Management in college, but I don't feel it's what I really want to do. I'm not overly fond of my course.
6. When I was younger I always wanted to be a teacher. I used to play games like 'teacher', I even had my own little blackboard. I would hate to be a teacher now.
7. I am the youngest of 3- I don't really get along with my siblings. I feel we all have completely different interests and personalities.
8. I am a total 'neat freak' when it comes to my things.Everything has it's own little place. Shame I can't say the same about my room! :P
9. I haven't had much contact with friends since leaving school. There is only 1 person I really stay in touch with. The rest I see more as acquaintances. But I am loving meeting new and interesting people through blogging! 
10. I have 2 tattoos and 19 piercings. I regret both of my tattoos.
11. I have a huge fear of spiders. I will run in the opposite direction at the mere thought of one being there. I can't read or look and anything with a picture of a spider on it. Other than that I love most other animals!
