Liebster Award

Thank you to the lovely Emma for nominating me for this! Her blog is here

This post is about blogs that have under 200 followers and just need a little push to get that extra attention their fabulous blogs need.

The Rules:
1. Each person tagged must post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. They must answer the 11 questions posted by the previous blogger.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask their tagged bloggers.
4. They must tag 11 blogs with less than 200 followers.
5. The bloggers must be told.
6. No tag backs.

11 facts about Katie:

1. When I was 9 years old I got Scarlet Fever in which the doctors had not seen for 20 years. I'm in some medical book somewhere in my underwear covered in rashes! Lovely...

2. I have just graduated from University with a 2:1

3. I suffer with severe arachnophobia. Arachnophobia is a fear of spiders. I have seen a psychologist about it, which sounds a bit odd, but I have panic attacks when I see spiders.

4. For my 21st birthday my wonderful mother took me on an amazing trip to New York City and Barbados.

5. I am an only child. I live with my mum (momma K!), two cats (Morris and Bo) and my boyf (Craig).

6. I don't like olives. I tried one in a restaurant last year (a super posh restaurant!) and nearly vomited. They are proper rank.

7. Days out are my favourite things - I love nothing more than exploring a quaint little village or a bustling city.

8. I've had a couple of my own radio shows differing from a specialist indie music show to a general chit chat day time show up in the North East.

9. Chorizo and goats cheese are my favourite food. Separately and together. I'm salivating just thinking about them omg...

10. I was born and bred in Blackburn, Lancashire.

11. Lastly, but very much not least, I am madly in love with my wonderful Geordie delight, Craig. In October we will have been together for 3 whole years.

Now the questions from Emma!

1. What is your favourite sport?
When I was at school my favourite sport was rounders because I was DEAD GOOD at it. I was the baller and captain, but it seems you can only play rounders at school. If it was an Olympic sport I'd definitely have gold by now.
Sports I enjoy watching are gymnastics, swimming, football and pretty much everything at the Winter Olympics.

2. How many siblings do you have?

Zero! I am an only child. It can be both a blessing and a curse.

3. What beauty item could not live without?
Hmm. This is hard! How do I pick one?! I have rubbish eyelashes, they're very blonde and very short, so without mascara I look eyelash-less. Which is weird... but my skin is also not my finest point so I think I'll go with foundation. I always feel so much better with a little foundation on, it perks my skin right up.

4. What is your favourite clothes shop?
I can't really say I have a favourite clothes shop. Obviously I love shopping but I buy equal amounts of clothes from different shops! I usually love most things in Topshop and River Island. Zara always has great pieces as does French Connection.

5. Are you team Jen or Angelina?
I'm team no one. I don't really dig the whole 'lets be against women because one cheated and the other is so hard done by!' - it's not my scene.
I am a big fan of both of them, because of their work. I am a huuuge Friends fan and always loved Rachel, so I like Jennifer. I think Angelina is a fantastic mother too.

6. What is your job?

As I've just graduated I'm currently looking for one!

7. Fashion or beauty?
I've always been more in to fashion than beauty. I never used to be in to beauty that much at all really but since blogging it's become a definite forefront. I still think fashion is better though! I just find it more expressive.

8. What is your favourite beauty brand?

I really like Clarins, they have such a wide range and I love that they cater for both men and women on a big scale.

9. Do you have a dream?
Not really, no. That doesn't mean I'm not passionate or determined, I just don't think I have a particular path. As long as I have a happy and fulfilling life then that's all I need.

10. What is your favourite film?
I have quite a few, I can never pick a particular one. I love the Harry Potter films, Sixteen Candles, Submarine.
Last night I watched a documentary film and it was fantastic, it's definitely gone in my favourites list. It's called 'Paris is Burning' and is about the drag scene in NYC in the late 80's. If you're a fan of things such as RuPaul's Drag Race, I highly recommend you watch it. You will learn so much, even things such as where those words came from, such as 'reading', 'shade' and 'extravaganza!'
It has amazing humour (obviously!) but it's also terribly sad in some parts.

11. What is the best piece of advice you've received?
"You can't live your life by other people, you do what is best for you and you do it when you want to do it. Always look out for those that look out for you and never forget where you came from!" momma K.
