liebster award #7 & #8

What? Amy's been nominated for another two Liebster Awards? People are still doing that? Whatttt??
In all seriousness though, thank you to Emily and Amelia for glittering this blog in another two Liebster awards - you guys rock!

~You can check out the other six Liebsters here~

Do y'all remember the rules?
- Give 11 facts about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions you are given.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers.
- Set them 11 questions.
- Put the award button on your site.

But, as these two awards have been smooshed together in the same post, I'll choose 5(.5) of my favourite questions from Emily and Amelia to answer, smother you guys with 11 facts about myself, nominate 22 people aaand give you guys 11 questions each to answer. Phew. Tricky thing, that mathematics.

Let's go!

Emily's 5(.5) questions;

Which book world would you live in, if you could never return?
THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF HARRY POTTER, no doubt about it. I would love to learn how to fly a broomstick and work a wand and create potions and be around phoenixes and dragons and just, ugh, why is Hogwarts not real??? Also, according to Pottermore I'd be in Ravenclaw, which is obviously AWESOME NEWS (Ravenclaw's the best, kay?)! I would study pretty damn hard at Hogwarts, and I think I'd be good at doing all da magixx*, so Professors, if you're reading this, you should probably hurry up and tell me I'm a wizard.

What book have you been meaning to read forever but just not got round to?
The Timekeeper by Mitch Albom. It was suggested to me a few months back and I've really been meaning to pick it up. For those of you who don't know, The Timekeeper is a novel that shows that "instead of desiring more time, people should instead realize time is precious and should be used wisely". It looks fab.

What do you do when you're bored?
So there's a thing called Youtube...

What book did everyone else love, but you hated?
The Fault In Our Stars - it is just so incredibly overrated. It's 'sick lit' and is desensitising the very real issue of terminal illnesses and just ugh, I really disagree with some of the ideas that John Green is trying to portray.

Fictional crush?
Leonard Hofstadter asdfghjkl:

Amelia's 5(.5) questions;

Name the first word that comes to your mind.
Walkers. As in the crisps. As in cheese and onion. As in right now. Mmmm... 
*bats off distractions*

Which TV Show would you love to take part in?
That 70s Show - the clothes, hair and makeup is stunning, and to be with Topher Grace? IMAGINE HOW AWESOME THAT WOULD BE! Also, I'd love to go to Wisconsin some day, so that'd be convenient.

Who's concert have you never been to and would love to go?
*coughs* Ahem. The 1975, Ed Sheeran, James Blunt (soon my precious, sooonnn!), The Hoosiers, The Kooks, Daniel Powter, James Morrison, Green Day, The Foo Fighters (le cri) and The Stiff Dylans. All amazing artists who I would be over the moon to see in concert.

Summer or Winter?
Summer is evil, so that's pretty self-explanatory. Also, Winter is full of fun things like my birthday, Christmas, hot chocolate and warm fluffy socks. 

What is your favourite part of Autumn?

I love it when the trees change colour and bright orange, yellow and red leaves carpet everywhere you go - it's just so beautiful.

11 facts about myself that y'all are just dying to know;

1. I'm going to two concerts next month, UB40 and James Blunt, and I am so incredibly hyped - especially for James Blunt as the concert is in Brighton and we're going to stay over there for a night or two.
2. I'm currently typing this in my pyjamas on my sofa whilst watching That 70s Show and waiting for the kettle to boil.
3. At the moment I own three cacti, four sunflowers, a baby orange tree and a handful of newly sprouted tomato trees because I'm trying to be organic and they make my room look cool.
4. Yesterday I had a photoshoot with a lace jacket that a company sent me to review on here, which was pretty exciting.
5. I have a Spanish exam in a few days, and need to memorise TWO HUNDRED words. Impossible? I think so.
6. I only have 145 days left at my school until I am freeeeeee!
7. Tea triumphs coffee any day of the week.
8. Mila Kunis is a better rollerskater than me.
9. I watched Monsters University yesterday (I had homework to do so of course I had to procrastinate) and aw, baby Mike Wazowski is just the cutest thing. I felt so sorry for him when he was younger and no one wanted to be his class partner and he was left ON HIS OWN AT THE BACK OF THE CLASS. Holy crap the feels.
10. All the shops near me are selling Christmas decorations. Already. I swear we only just had Summer?
11. Dan is not on fire**.

  12. Aw, thanks for the tag!!! XD I like your questions for us tagees, but all I can think of for #1 is: I would run out of the room. >_< I'm super shy! XD

    Memorising 200 words of Spanish? Gosh I'd die if that was 200 words of English. MY BRAIN IS SWISS CHEESE. But interesting swiss cheese, so it's not all bad. Aw, Ravenclaw. I'm Slytherin. DON'T ASK. I JUST AM. *trudges wearily to stand with the villains* I honestly promise I'm mostly a nice person.

  20. 'Christmas, hot chocolate and warm fluffy socks' .. YES! I can't help but giggle a little, as I'm sat here wearing blue and white striped fluffy socks, with a mug of hot chocolate beside me and a Christmas advert just showed on the television (and I nearly cried with excitement). It was lovely getting to know a little more about you! :)
    - I follow back on Bloglovin' -

    1. Let me know when you do! And yes, somebody got my Dan is not on fire reference! ^_^

  22. Whaaat did my comment come through?? The internet is seriously acting up. I blame the fact I'm in Singapore.

    If it didn't, here is a brief history of Emily's Comment:
    -- thank you for not nominating me (cap locks were used)
    -- your lace jacket sounds snazzy
    -- many people have put TFIOS as their answer to that question
    -- I actually loved it
    -- but I agree it got too much hype.

      You are welcome for not being nominated (I think), snazzy is a good word, TFIOS is only about 95% awful so that's cool.

  23. Well, congrats for another award! Wish you a lovely day!
