Beauty, Lifestyle and Style

Wednesday, 30 March 2016


Firstly, I would like to say thank you to Amy at The Lovely Things  for nominating me for the Liebster award. After a little googling, I have discovered that this is a chain letter style chance to highlight fellow smaller bloggers (less than 1000 followers) who you have discovered and enjoy reading. 

Usually I would be sceptical of these things on social media, but the idea of bringing bloggers together to celebrate new members to the community, along with learning about fellow bloggers is not something I can really find fault in! So I was shocked as well as delighted that Amy chose my blog as one of her nominations!

There are a few rules for the Liebster Award, as with any chain-style post:

- Thank the blog that nominated you on a post in your blog
- Answer the questions asked by the blog that nominated you
- Nominate other new bloggers
- Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer
- Notify all nominees via social media

Amy's Questions:

Who are you?
I'm Katie, 24 years old, a twin with triplet sisters from Norfolk. Now living in Oxfordshire but commuting to London for work. I love keeping busy, have a rather unhealthy obsession with beauty products and love everything white & grey. 
Why did you start blogging?
I have always been an avid watcher of youtube accounts such as In The Frow, Samantha Maria and HelloOctober to name a few. From there the blogs just followed, I've always loved writing and having a creative outlet is keeping me busy busy busy.
Your favourite Instagram account to follow?
Josie from JOSIELDN (Fashion Mumblr) by faaaar. She also recently followed me on Instagram too, yes a squeal did come out! haha
What is your favourite blog post of your own and why?
My favourite was actually posted on Monday!! It is titled 'How to stay level headed when hit with change'. I love writing lifestyle posts like this, as I can get a bit more personal. Another is my review on Blogosphere found here. I had such fun writing this post.
Where do you go for inspiration?
YouTube, Bloglovin & a wonder around London.
How do you like to spend your day?
My favourite days are when I manage to have a little lie in, followed by a nice brunch out with my boyfriend or friends. Exploring a new city, taking photos and generally relaxing.
Best coffee shop or hangout spot you've been to?
Ooo tough. This weekend myself and Rob found Le Pan Quotidian in Canary Wharf when staying in London, such a lovely vibe and a delicious latte (and breakfast!)
Advice you would give your 5-years-ago self?
Just do it. Stop thinking about what other people think of you. All will work out in the end.
Coffee or Tea?
Coffee 100%.
Your go-to fav blog?
She isn't small by no means, but Victoria from InTheFrow will always be my go-to for fashion, beauty and lifestyle inspiration. Having met her at one of her meet ups I don't think this will ever change, I'm in awe of the woman!
Something you want everyone to know!
