Liebster Awards


Hope you all had a lovely weekend :) 

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to have been nominated for a Liebster Award, and have recently been extremely privileged to have been nominated by 5 lovely bloggers who I definitely checking out:) Here are their links:

There are a few rules, which you can find HERE, including the compulsory 11 facts about yourself. 


Questions from Roxy
1. What's your favourite thing to blog about?
That'd probably be crafts or outfits. I'm not the most creative or greatest with fashion but it's two things I've grown to love over the years :)
2. What inspired you to start writing a blog?
Whilst reading blogs I learnt a lot of things like places to go visit, to eat, reviews, outfit ideas etc - there's so much you can learn from other people and I wanted to share some of my ideas. And it was also being part of the amazing blogging community :)
3. What is one item of clothing you couldn't live without?
My pyjamas, it sounds a bit lazy, but if i could I would live in my PJs...they're just so comfy hehe. 
4. What is on your summer wish list?
My list is always changing, and never ending:p But at the moment, I really want a white summer/sun dress, wedges and a black fitted blazer...I've not found the 'perfect' ones yet...hopefully I will :p
5. What was the last beauty item you bought? was absolutely ages ago, and rather boring...but some vaseline hand moisturiser ;p I love their range, it smells good, isn't too heavy and does the job :)
6. What's your favourite song right now?
Definitely Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood, but also the Kurt Scheinder cover - it's brilliant!
7. What life motto do you choose to live by?
This isn't really a motto but just a few things I strongly believe in: Love with your whole heart, Laugh and Enjoy life, always have respect for others and never take things for granted and appreciate things.
8. Do you prefer sun or snow?
9. What is your dream job?
10. Who is your favourite blogger of all time?
I think she's a lot of people's, but Zoella is definitely my favourite blogger ever :)
11. Why is your blog called what it is?
I'm a petite at the height of 5ft and a half (yep that half is very important hehe) I just wanted to blog about my life and loves, so thought 'Life as a Petite' was quite an apt name :)

Questions from Laura

1) What made you want to start a blog? 
I learnt a lot through reading blogs and wanted to share my thoughts, even if they are nonsense :) 
2) How/why did you choose your blog name? 
Same as above
3) Which season do you prefer? 
4) If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be as why? 
Australia - it's just a place I've always wanted to visit, it's just so beautiful :)
5) If you had a time machine which time would you travel back to and why? 
Not too interesting but, I'd travel back to the beginning of my life and instead of worrying about things, enjoy life more - a little bit like what happened in About Time
6) What are you most proud of at this moment in time?
Having achieved Grade 8 on the piano :)
7) What's your favourite brand of make-up? 
I don't really wear make up so I'm not really sure
8) What is your "must have" make-up?
If I were to wear make up, it'll be blusher :)
9) If you was to come back as a animal, which animal would you be and why? 
A pet dog or cat, because you get looked after so well...i'm just lazy I guess :p
10) Who is your icon and why?
A bit of a controversial one, but Victoria Beckham. I know people comment on her not smiling etc, and I thought the same until I saw her on 'Victoria Beckham Takes America' where she explained why she did it, and she actually is so so funny! Also I really admire how she has a very successful fashion brand (whether it's to everyone's taste or not) and most importantly spends time with her children. It's always going to be the question of whether it's a PR stunt that they're always seen with their children etc, but I think it's really important and lovely that they Beckhams do spend quality time with them :)
11) What's your best childhood memory?
I actually have so so many it's really difficult to pin point one...I think just any with my friends and family :)

5. Favorite thing to do with a day off work?
Sleep or just spend time with my family
6. What is your favorite book?
Pride & Prejudice
7. Were you nervous or scared about starting a blog?
Yes definitely because you're never sure whether you're writing rubbish etc
8. What would be your dream job?
9. Do you have any siblings?
Yes :)
10. What is one quote you live by?
Same as above (even though it's not really a quote;p)
11. Any pet peeves?
People taking up the whole pavement or walking extremely slowly when they know that people are behind them...Also when people write 'your' instead of 'you're/you are'...

Questions from Bekka
1. Your favourite quote?
He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you -- Bob Marley
2. Your top 3 favourite books?

Pride & Prejudice, The Great Gatsby and My Sister's Keeper

Questions from Sian
1. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
Same as above :)
2. What are your future career aspirations?
Just to be as successful as I can be in whatever I choose :)
3. Do you think that bloggers get bad press and explain why.
