Liebster Award

So I'm super excited about the fact that I just got nominated for the Liebster Blog Award! This is just really waayy awesome and I'm kind of lost for words which is saying something considering I'm a blogger and as a rule our lives usually run on words (I absolutely love to talk). I had a lot of fun writing this post and answering the questions but before I continue, I just wanted to thank Between The Bind for nominating me and give a shout out to Little Hyuts for thinking of me as well!

But wait a sec, what even is the Liebster Blog Award you ask?

Well The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have 200 followers or less (yep thats me alright!). The word Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, dearest, beloved, lovely, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Here's the Rules:

1. Each person must
post 11 random facts about themselves
2. Answer 11 questions the tagger has given you and give 11 questions for the people you tagged
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post
4. Tell them you've tagged them
5. Remember, no tag backs

My 11 Random Facts:

1.  One of my favourite colours is lilac
2.  I love to paint

11. I don't mind the dentist
Questions from Between The Bind:

1. What is your real name?


2. What "paranormal"-being would you choose to be and why?

Hmmm, I think I would be a witch (not the green, melting warty kind) attending Hogwarts. Why? Because Hogwarts is awesome and I'm still convinced that the owl with my acceptance letter simply took a lengthy detour.

3. Who are your favorite indie authors (max: 3)?

My three favourite indie authors right now would definetley have to be:
Jenna Elizabeth Johnson, author of Faelorehn
