The Liebster Award

How exciting!  I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by Bubbly-Bobbie.  Thank you so much!  Below is a list of rules to receive the Liebster Award and the answers to the questions I was asked, followed by my list of questions for my nominees.

The Rules 

1. You must link back to the person that nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee.
3. You must pick 11 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.
4. You must come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.

Questions I was asked

1. Who would you say is your biggest inspiration?
Oooh that’s a tough one.  Ummm.  Probably my dad?  He has lived an amazing life and is always telling stories about his youth that I haven’t heard before.  He joined the merchant navy when he was young so has travelled a lot and lived in several countries including Hong Kong and Australia.  He is the reason I have such a lust for travel.

2. Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?
I’ll be 35.  Wow.  By then I hope that I will be well into my career as a sports masseuse and not living under my parents roof.  Hopefully I’ll be back by the beach in Swansea with my boyfriend and maybe a couple of dogs.  I also hope that I’ll have visited all the places in the world that I am still yet to see.

3. What is the most expensive make-up product you've ever bought?
I'm more into my skincare than make-up considering I wear bare minimal – none, so on make-up I think it was a new Stila blusher for £14. I have spent just over £20 on moisturizer though.

4. What is your reason why you started blogging?
My inspiration for Tea in the Tub came whilst in the bath.  I was thinking about how much I enjoy writing and the skincare products I use so thought it would be fun to combines these loves and review them online. I did my research, liked what I found and thus Tea in the Tub was born.

5. Favourite hair product?
I don’t have a favourite hair product as I'm not a very loyal person when it comes to haircare but I've recently done a review on Phil Smith’s Argan Oil which I am currently using all the time and adore.

6. What is one thing you could not live without with? 
Meat substitute. When I go abroad, I crave fake meat so bad!

7. Who's album are you currently obsessed with at the moment?
I can’t say I really listen to albums, just whatever pops onto my iPod when I run. I'm liking a weird South African group called Die Antwoord at the moment which I was introduced to by my Dutch friends when I visited them in Rotterdam back in February.

8. Heels or Flats?
Flats definitely!  Huge flip-flop fan (I'd wear them year round if my toes wouldn't fall off in winter) but my current love with my VansBixie.  I think I’d fall over in anything with a heel higher than an inch.
I think my Vans are too big for Pepé's paws.

9. If you could be an animal for a week, what animal would you be and why?
Another tough one.  Wolves are my fav but I don't think I'd like to be one.  I could be my dog for a week so I can teach myself not to attack the postman and generally be a good boy.

10. Your favourite Youtuber/Blogger at the moment?
Jenna Marbles.  She’s so cool and inspirational.

11. Tell us a random fact about you...
In 2006 I ran with about 2000 people from around the globe in a big naked protest in Pamplona, Spain against the evil “sport” of bull fighting.  It was incredible.  I was in my local paper and on the radio.  Woop!
