Liebster Award

   When I started blogging just a little over a year ago, I opened myself up to a world full of inspiration, life lessons and wonderful friendships.
The inspirational blogs that I have come to know and love have made me laugh out loud, cry rivers of tears and have helped me to over come some personal hurdles.

In comparison to these, my blog is small, sometimes insignificant, crazy, and most of all full of useless ramblings. But I enjoy writing and my small space has become a place of immense joy for me. 

So imagine my utter astonishment when the gorgeous Bec of mummatells nominated me for a Liebster Award. 

The Liebster Award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It is for the 'up and coming' bloggers, the small guys (yep that's me) who are just starting out on their bloggy journey.

There are a few teeny tiny rules that apply if you are to participate, but all in all it's just a bit of fun 

*You have to answer 11 questions of your nominator's choosing.
*Write a list of 11 things that tell others a little bit more about you.
*Write your own list of 11 questions for 11 'up and coming' bloggers of your choice.

It's that easy :)

If any character from a novel could be your best friend, who would you want it to be and why? 
Willy Wonker, so he could keep me happy with my addiction to chocolate !

Brights or pastels?
Brights, colour makes me happy :)

Toast and Vegemite

Has to be cheesecake :)
