Liebster Award

I am beyond honoured to have been nominated again for a Liebster Award! This time from the wonderful floatinggold, whos site is full of creative and inspiring posts which you should definitely check out!


Rules Of Accepting The Liebster Award

The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers, whose work they find interesting, to motivate them and promote them as well. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

The instructions for accepting the award and passing it on are as follows:

•Create a new blog post on your blog thanking the person that nominated you, link to their blog and put in a graphic of the award.

•Answer the questions that were provided, and then share some facts about yourself.

•Create a new set of your own questions for others to answer.

•Nominate 5-11 others and share your blog post with them so they can accept their awards


  1. How much do you follow the news?

I am very interested in global politics and current affairs, after being hugely inspired by my A Level Politics teacher (shout out to you Nick Cowell!). I do find it hard to follow the news too closely however, as the constant 24 hour rolling broadcasts and focus on suffering can make the world seem like a very scary and sad place sometimes. Instead, I make sure I am up to date with headlines and key events around the world, and then research and read up on topics which have particularly caught my interest. I do feel we all have a responsibility as global citizens to keep up with what is going on, as to be uninformed seems quite a dangerous place to be at the moment!

2. Are you currently living in the city you were born in?

I am not, and I am very happy about it! As anyone who has read my post Relocate will know, I have a complicated relationship with my hometown which largely involved trying my best to leave it! I am very happy where I am at the moment, but I am a bit of a wanderer so we shall see!

3. Is there anything in particular that you are looking forward to in the near future?

Firstly, the opportunity to have a future – every day we get on this Earth is a huge blessing. I am also in the process of beginning a new job involving lots of travel, so very much looking forward to that, as well as possibly going back to Uni in the Autumn. My brother is also performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year, so lots of exciting things to look forward to!

4. What makes you laugh?

I have quite a dry and dark sense of humour, so quite odd things! I have some friends who make me absolutely howl on a daily basis at the most random things, and I find silly things like someone pretending to be a sheep absolutely hilarious! I probably spend more time laughing than anything else, especially when I really shouldn’t be!

5. What do you stress about the most?

Unfulfilled potential, and missed opportunities.

6. If you join the circus, what would you perform and why?

I’m not a huge fan of circus’s using live animals for entertainment, so it would have to be something like the trapeze or aerial hoops. I’m currently training myself in silks, so that would be cool!

Here are my nominations, wonderful bloggers who inspire me every day!

And here are my questions:

  1. Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
  2. What is your life motto?
  3. If you won the Euromillions tomorrow, how would it change your life?
  4. If you could magically have any skill, what would it be and why?
  5. Where in the world would you most like to travel?
  6. Who are your top three dinner guests, living or dead?
  7. Describe yourself in three words?

Once again, thanks so so much for this award, my readers mean the absolute world to me, and I’m so glad you like my random thoughts!

Love and light

  1. I wrote a comment, but then something happened and I got an error. So if you get a duplicate comment, I apologize. Just delete one of them.

    Thank you for answering. I can definitely relate to most if not all of your answers. My A-levels Politics teacher was also someone who powered my interest on the subject.


  2. Hey! Just read your piece and I think you have found amazing answers. We were both nominated at the same time and interestingly we basically have the same answer to the circus-question! haha
