Meet-Up Problems & Liebster Award Q&A

Hey everyone! So I just felt like writing a casual little chatty blog post today. Y'know a little bit of word vomit never hurt anyone. It's drizzling outside my window and I'm sat in the warmth of my bed on fresh white sheets reading some of my favourite blogs and chatting on twitter. I love this. All I need to do now is light my new shea butter candle melt and maybe grab some naughty treats because I'm pretty hungry... Better not get them on the new sheets though!

I got an invite to a Cocoa Brown launch party which would include chats and beauty tips from Marissa Carter (creator of Cocoa Brown tan) and another woman who is an Xfactor make-up artist. The event is on Sunday in Dublin and I really want to go!

It's such an honour to be invited when tickets cost €52 and it's the first thing like this I've been invited to as a blogger. I would also get the chance to meet some other Irish girls I've met through blogging, and that alone would be a great reason to go. The problem is, it's not that easy for me to get to Dublin! It's two and a half hours on train or bus which isn't that bad. But I don't really want to go alone, I know I'd have loads of people to chat to at the event but getting to and from alone makes me a bit worried, but I'm also thinking I should just bite the bullet!

The annoying thing is I will be going up to Dublin the following day with my boyfriend to see Lifehouse in the Olympia and we will be staying the night. IF ONLY the event was a day or two later, it would be perfect. Since it's on Sunday, I would have to go up and down to Dublin twice in the space of three days and let me tell ya, travel is expensive! Ah well, hopefully there will be another opportunity to meet fellow bloggers soon.

I thought I would answer some questions I got asked by the lovely Sinéad over at the The Travel Bible in her latest Liebster award post. Since I've done this post once or twice ageees ago I thought there was no point making another one and nominating other bloggers, but I still really want to answer Sinéad's questions so here we gooooo...

1. What was the last photo you took on your phone? 
I couldn't tell you how many versions of this photo are on my phone. I was trying to capture it for Instagram, as ya do! and it is veeery hard to get a shot of a dog wrestling a teddy!
2. If you could be best friends with anyone in the world who would it be and why?
Well they would need to be someone loyal, funny, with similar interests and always makes time for us to hang out. Hmm I can't really pick a celebrity because I don't know if they'd make a good friend or not. I'm going to cheat on this question and say anyone with the aforementioned qualities - I'm not fussy really haha, but it's surprisingly hard to find someone like that!

3. What have you found most rewarding about being a blogger? 

I find it really rewarding when other people enjoy my content. Having people actually care about what you got to say is an amazing feeling. For example how Sinead nominated me to do this post despite her having to nominate people with less than 200 followers because she wanted to hear my answers makes me feel like I matter and my opinions and thoughts matter. 

4. Who is your celebrity style icon? 

I don't really follow any celebrity style. I just wear what I like and what's 'in' at the moment. I get more inspiration from other bloggers and their outfit of the day and fashion posts!

5. What was your favourite country you've been too? or your favourite holiday? 

I haven't been to very many places, so I don't have a whole lot to choose from but I did really love Italy. The scenery, the people, the food, the buildings, everything is just beyond beautiful. I've been to Venice and Verona as well as Lake Garda and they were amazing. It's a country that has so much to offer and so much to see. I definitely want to go back again to see Florence, Rome, Sorrento and Tuscany. 

6. What's your favourite place to visit in your local area and why?

Hmm I really like going for walks with Nicky and being outdoors. There are some lovely woods not too far from me with lots of walkways through them. It's somewhere I enjoy going to clear my head and to just unwind and breathe in some fresh air.

7. What is your favourite music genre?
I actually don't really have a favourite genre. It's more about how the music makes you feel I think! Like when I'm chilling out I like something slow or easy listening, when I'm on a night out I want some house or dance music y'know?! It really depends on my mood. I do generally love soft rock like Coldplay, Kodaline, Snow Patrol, that kinda feel!

8. Any weird habits? 

Apparently I chew really loudly which is such an annoying habit for other people to have to deal with haha. It's mostly just when I'm chewing gum, I really get in to it y'know?! haha. 

9. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up? 

I don't remember ever knowing what I wanted to be! There was a short period after being in a school play where I was hell bent on becoming an actress because everyone kept telling me how good I was. But soon my realist side kicked in and I decided teaching was more likely. Hmm what if hey?!

10. Would you rather have lunch with Kim Kardashian or Barack Obama?

Haha umm. I don't really like Kim K to be honest and I feel like she wouldn't have much time for a little peasant like me on a lunch date. Barack Obama would be pretty awesome but I think that would be really intimidating and I wouldn't really know what to talk to him about since I'm not exactly in to politics. So y'know I'm going to say Kim because I'm sure she'd have lots of beauty and fashion tips to share, and she could show me how to take the perfect selfie! hahaha oh God, what kind of person am I?! who needs to discuss world peace when you can learn about much more important things with Kim :P

Once again, thanks to Sinéad for nominating me, sorry it took me so long to get around to it! 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! What have you got planned for it?
