The Liebster Award

Yesterday I was nominated for The Liebster Award by the lovely Sophie from Spontaneous Blog (go check out her amazing blog!). The Liebster Award is an award to welcome new bloggers (those with less than 200 followers) into the blogging community- I think it's such a cute and lovely idea! I'm honoured to be nominated for this award, especially as I've only been blogging for a short space of time, so thank you Sophie! 


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you 
2. Write 11 facts about yourself
3. Answer the questions provided by the person who nominated you
4. Nominate other bloggers with under 200 followers to receive the award
5. Ask 11 questions for your nominees to answer

Facts about Julie-Ann:

1. I'm only 5 foot. 

2. I have a (slight) addiction to Starbucks Mocha Coconut Frappuccinos.

3. I have seen every episode of Friends. 

4. I will always have a cup of tea with my breakfast (it has to be English Breakfast Tea).

5. I absolutely love musicals.

6. I love to read (which is great considering I study English Literature at Uni!).

7. Winter is my favourite season.

8. My favourite makeup brand is MAC.

9. I would love to have Alexa Chung's Wardrobe.

10.  The 1980s is my favourite decade (the fashion, the music and the hairstyles...).

11. I want to move to London when I graduate from University.

Sophie's Questions:

1. Fashion or Beauty?

Ooh a difficult question... I love both but definitely Fashion. As Coco Chanel famously said: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” 

2. Who are your inspirations?

The biggest inspirations in my life have to be my family and friends. They inspire me everyday to reach for my dreams.

3. Favourite place in the world?

London. It's such a vibrant and beautiful city. I'm at my happiest when I'm sat in a cafe in Covent Garden, watching the world go by.

4.  What is your favourite thing to do?

Erm shop... I'm a self-confessed shopaholic! At the moment I'm loving creating this blog. However, my most favourite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends.

5. Any aspirations or dreams?

I think my greatest aspiration in life is to be happy and to do what I love. It's as simple as that really. 

6. What is your favourite animal?

A Monkey. My childhood teddy was a monkey and they've been my favourite animal ever since! 

7. Favourite High Street store?

Another difficult question... It's between Topshop and Zara (I can't decide!). The clothes at both these store are always bang on trend.

8. Why did you start your blog?

I love looking at fashion and beauty blogs for inspiration and to keep up to date with the latest trends. So, I decided to start one myself and I'm so glad I did- I love writing for my blog and being a part of the blogging community. 

9. If you could be stuck in a lift with one person- who would it be?

I'm really claustrophobic so ideally someone who could fix the lift! No, probably Anna Wintour. She has to be the most powerful woman in the entire fashion industry. I love to know what it's really like to be the editor-in-chief of the most influential fashion magazine ever.

10. Favourite Film 

I can't possibly answer that question. I love film (almost as much as I love fashion and beauty!), so I have a LOT of favourite films ranging from The Matrix to When Harry Met Sally...

11. Something that you must have with you at all times

It has to be my iPhone... I literally always have it with me (oops!).
