The Liebster Award

The lovely Krystal from Wildflower 3, has nominated me for the  The Liebster Award, which was incredibly sweet of her! Since I'm still new to blogging my first reaction was..'what the hell is a Liebster award?'  and according to my very thorough google searching it is an award that is given by the blogging community to new up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. Basically a kind of chain letter but the good kind! Which connects old and upcoming bloggers together.  So by nominating 11 bloggers, their pages will be seen by curious bloggers and hopefully new followers. And let's face it, it's just a bit of fun really!
Upon accepting the award you must follow some rules, as shown below. 

**Here are the details on receiving this award**
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves. 
2. Answer the questions that the nominator set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve nominated to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs!

Step 1-11 things about me!
1. I'm a teeny wee bit obsessed with pugs. 
2. I love taking photographs but i don't want to be a photographer..yet.
3.I'm currently going back to study with a course in Graphic design.

Step 2- My answers to Krystal's Questions.
1. What's your biggest pet peeve
Hmmm quite a few things irritate me haha but it would probably have to be people chewing food with their mouths open!
2. Name 3 artists currently in your car CD player? Or last 3 music artists you purchased from.
Of Monsters and Men, The Rubens and Mumford and Sons all recently purchased!
3. If you could only eat 1 meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Every Canon prime lens i could get my hands on!

8. What song would you pick to be the theme song of your life? 
I can't think of anything! So creative. First thing that popped into my head was 'hot potato' by the wiggles. Probably because my niece was just here and i also really feel like mash potato.
