Get To Know Me: Liebster Award Nomination

written 3rd March 2014. published 21st May 2014. 

Oh wow, I got nominated for a Liebster Award. I've seen this floating around people's blogs and never thought I would get one, so thank you. I was tagged by Natalie at Broke Student Fashion (who you should really check out if you're into making your own clothes/fashion and beauty). I'm not one for tagging on this blog, but I've been convinced, haha, so here goes: 
How long have you been blogging and what inspired you to start?

Erm, depends on what you define as "blogging." Informal blogging I've been doing for about four years, but this blog I started last summer. I decided to start this one because I wanted another platform to show my photographs and stuff that wasn't the necessarily finished work that's on Flickr. I'm still branching out, experimenting with what goes on this blog so we'll see.  
What is your alcoholic beverage of choice?

Haha well, I am very partial to fruit cocktails - mojitos, daiquris, bellini, you name it. I also like Rose/White wine, fruit ciders, and alcopops. Basically anything fruity and sweet. Anything.  
What is your favourite pet - cats, dogs or something else?
Bunnies and cats. Forever and forever. I can never decide on whether to get an indoor Netherland dwarf/lop rabbit OR a fluffy kitty such as a Ragdoll or Munchkin! I really like rodent pets though, so hamsters, chinchillas, rabbits, we're good. 

Back at my parents we have a lot of pets, but currently they have my cat (She's all old at 12 years now bless her), four chickens and two dogs.  
Do you wear makeup every day?
Not at all! I only actually started wearing make up AT ALL last year? So I'm still at that terrible experimental stage that most people go through at 14. If I had the time and patience I would wear make-up daily, but sadly it's not yet.  
Where would your dream holiday destination be?
Well, St Lucia Wetland Park in South Africa is my paradise. I went there two years ago and it was the most relaxing, amazingly hot and interesting place I've ever been. It's got beach, animals, restaurants and free wifi, what more could you want? 

More generally though, I prefer places with sun and cultural interest, so I can spend mornings site-seeing or visiting museums and the afternoon tanning!  
Have you ever tried vlogging? If not, would you ever?
I'm very hesitant to admit I have, and it is a lot, lot harder than I imagined it would be. I've only done 2 videos. Ideally I would like to revisit filming and actually vlog on youtube. Maybe later this year.  
What is something that scares you?
I'm scared of being out of control.  
Where do you see yourself in five years time, both personally and professionally?
Well, I would be 26... which sounds awfully old to me, right now (apologies for my friends and relatives who are that age and older haha!). Personally I would like to have a stable income, at last! I would like a proper house or apartment full of my own things. I would hope to have made some progress with my photography and maybe not be alone? I really don't have high expectations, wow.  
How would you describe your clothing style?
Hmm, well I seem to swing from "girl-who-likes-indie-folk-music-and-takes-pictures-of-her-food" look to the "girl-who-wants-to-look-edgy-and-girly-at-the-same-time-but-lacks-the-funds" look. I like florals, pastels, black, interesting leggings, over-sized knitwear and flat shoes. I do try and express myself through my clothing, so it tends to change with my mood!  
What book have you read and enjoyed recently? 
I haven't had much time for reading lately, but I'm enjoying A Clash of Kings by George RR Martin :) 

I'm unfortunately not in much of a blogging community since I hardly ever blog (:/) but I really recommend these photography blogs (a teeny sample of the ones I read!):
