Today is a very exciting day at Handpicked Beauty! I was (or should I say we were) nominated for the Liebster Award, which for me is a big deal.

My Questions from Sally
1. Who/What inspired you to start blogging? I know quite a few people who blog, including my brother when he went to India for 6 months, and I am very chatty and I like to think I'm quite creative, so I thought it would be really fun to start a blog as a way of just sharing my thoughts and ideas! :)
2. What is your favourite blog? Mmm...that is a really tough question but probably A thrifty mrs, because her blog is full of lovely advice and tips, and it just puts me in a good mood, as well as inspires me! 
3. Tea or coffee? Teaaa, although I do like a good 'ol latté ;)
4. What are your favourite shops/brands? Cath Kidston, Fatface, Topshop
5. What is your pet hate? When tea goes cold when you haven't finished drinking it :( 
6. Bacon buttys with ketchup or HP? ketchup definitely, the only good thing about HP sauce is that it's the initials of Harry Potter ;)
7. What is the one thing you can't live without? Water.
8. Who is your favourite band/singer? I don't really have a certain band because I always listen to different artists depending on my mood, but I like most music except heavy metal or rock etc...
9. If you could give a piece of advice, what would it be? Try your best with everything you do and as long as you do that, you've never failed yourself. Something I say to myself a lot!
10. What would you like to have achieved in ten years time? I'm not that sure, but I would love to have got good grades in school and I would love to be fluent in French! I have so many dreams and hopes for the future though, like starting some pretty print company, so I am just living with the fact that it's all in God's hands and I trust him 100% that he has a plan for my life!
