Liebstar Award

Hey guys!

I was nominated by Madiha from Chai and Chopsticks for the Liebstar Award. Go check her out because she's amazing! Thank you so much Madiha<3 I feel like I've finally accomplished something in life!

"Liebstar" apparently means "sweetest", "kindest", "dearest" etc, how cute! It is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers who have less than 200 followers!

As part of the award, I must write 11 random facts, nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers, answer 11 questions from the blogger who has nominated me, and also ask 11 questions to those who I've nominated.

Here are my 11 random facts:
1. I really really really want to open a cute little bakery/cafe when I'm older, specialising in yummy cakes! in shaa Allah (if Allah wills)
2. I'm only 5'1
3. I hope to have 6 kids, and I soo want twins, in shaa Allah
4. I'm craving Jungle Braai at the moment, which is my favourite place to eat!
5. Pretty Little Liars is probably the only TV series I watch
6. My family are the funniest, craziest, and most annoying people I know, but they're my faves!
7. I am obsessing over loom bands at the moment!
8. Books and makeup are my loves foreverrrr
9. I love wearing rings, lovelovelove
10. Even though I'm 18 and supposed to be part of this technology generation, I actually suck at that sort of stuff!
11. I am sososo shy!

Here are my answers for Madiha's questions:
Do you follow makeup trends? No, I don't think there's one I've ever followed.
Favourite thing about blogging? I personally love blogging because through it I've discovered other blogs & bloggers, who I probably wouldn't have if I hadn't started, and these ones have ended up being ones I enjoy reading regularly!
What made you start blogging? I've always wanted to blog, but I've never had the courage to start, until recently.. & I hope even one person will be able to take something from my posts! 
Can you leave the house without makeup? I wear a niqab, but I do wear makeup underneath it (only base products).. on days where I know I'll be able to take it off (girls only gatherings), I do sometimes go without makeup, so yes!
Any phobias? Pigeons, bugs, insects, squirrels, cats, dogs, etc etc etc, my friend recently asked me "what are you not scared of?", awks!
Favourite TV show(s)? PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!
Would you rather have more followers that are inactive or less followers that are more active? Definitely less followers who'd be more active!
High end or high street? High street
How old were you when you first played with makeup? I actually used to dislike makeup and all things girly, I only started to be interested when I was 13
Favourite season and why? Spring! It's just the most perfect weather!
What is your dream job? Owning a cafe, not very ambitious I guess, but I really hope I do!
