Daxon blogger network!

I just wanted to remind you all about the Daxon blogger network that you can join! It's exclusively for blogs and there are many benifits of joining, one of which is that you can get a free £50 Amazon voucher! To join, all you need to do is make a post explaining about the network, add their little blog button to your sidebar, then email and let them know you've done it! It's so simple!

So, the lovely India nominated me for The Liebster Award! I'm going to presume you don't know what it is, because I didn't, so here's India's definition!;
Basically this is an award for bloggers with less than 200 followers. Liebster is German meaning dearest, beloved, sweetheart etc. If you still don't quite understand, it's very similar to the tags you see on you tube!

If nominated this is what you must do:
1. Tell your followers 11 random facts about yourself
2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer (don't answer your own questions!)
3. Choose a few people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.

11 facts about myself...
1. I'm 16 years old
2. I've met Rita Ora
3. I've met three members of The Wanted
4. I don't have a job
5. I'm studying Business Studies, English Language, Textiles and Media Studies at AS/A-level
6. I make handmade jewellery
7. Like lots of teenagers I'm madly in love with a boyband...
8. I met my best friend through the internet (on twitter to be exact)
9. I like Cath Kidston
10. I've got brown hair and brown eyes
11. I spend too much money on American sweets

India's questions answered...

1. Favourite high street shop?
Hmm, probably Urban Outfitters. I've spent too much time (and money) in there recently, but everything is perfect so

2. Favourite Blogger/Blogs?
Hmm, I'm going to be biased and say India's because she's one of my best friends (and because it really is lovely!)

3. Favourite band/musician?
It depends, because if we're talking about bands, then The Wanted, but any singer, Rita Ora. I can't choose between them because I'm a little bit obsessed with both

4. If you could wish for 3 things to happen in 2013 what would it be?
To meet Rita Ora again
To meet the rest of The Wanted (and meet the others again lol)
To study more, I want to actually pass my AS levels, lol!

5. What are 5 things on your wishlist?
There's about 8 things at the moment, just look at my last post!

6. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
I'd be lying if I didn't say it was the presents...

7. What was the last thing you read?
This! haha. and I'm reading Glamour magazine too... multitasking.

8. What is your most treasured possession?
I don't even know! I have so many things that I don't think I'd be able to cope without so..

9. What is your favourite make-up brand?
Don't really have one favourite brand, everything I buy is different (like, one brand for mascara, one brand for something else), so it depends!

10. If you could only wear one nail polish for the rest of your life what would it be?
my new nails inc one! it's a bright pinky-red colour

11. Define what the word 'love' means to you?
Love is indescribable;-) bet you weren't expecting that reply!

And as the only people I know on here that have under 200 followers have already been nominated, I'm nominating anybody that's reading this and wants to do it, ahah!



fgkmghjl by chipsandgravy featuring denim skinny jeans

Jumper- (New Look £24.99)
I decided this year I really want a Christmas-y jumper, but I still can't decide which to get. I don't want to pay too much for it because I won't get much wear out of it, but this one is so cute for £24.99!

Lip Balm- (Cath Kidston £5)
I've heard great reviews about these and the packaging is lovely!

Camouflage Jeans- (FannelsFashion £95)
Whilst out shopping a few weeks ago, I spotted a pair of camouflage jeans in a random shop in town which are gorgeous! They're not the same as the ones in the picture, but the shop doesn't have a website so I can't get one online. And those ones are only £25 which is less than half the price of these ones!

The Wanted bracelet- (Hot Topic £4.50)
I don't usually like silicone bracelets because I think they just look cheap and the writing usually just rubs off if they're not well made, but this one is cute and included in the buy one get one half price sale, so doesn't work out too bad.

Cross Ring- (PullandBear £5.99)
I actually had a double finger cross ring which I bought about a year and a half ago, but I broke it last week by accident and am desperate to replace it!

Nail Varnish- (Topshop £5)
Topshop nail varnish's are so cute! I'm not really fussy which colour I get either, I just love the bottles, haha!

Christmas Mug- (Cath Kidston £6)
This is so cute!

Mascara- (Topshop £12)
I've seen this on a few blogs and have read good reviews about it.


This week I ...

bought some chewy nerds(which I didn't like in the end) // bought some oreo cadburys // ordered some more rainbow nerds because they were on offer // did a jewellery sale // purchased some more Keri Smith books // ate my Fruit Loops at 10pm // went to Cath Kidston // tried Reggae Reggae crisps // made some friendship bracelets.

P.S. thank you to Becky and India for designing and basically making my blog for me. I was totally clueless (and still kind of am) to how Blogger works so left them to make it for me!
