The Liebster Blogging Award!

Wow, I've been nominated for a Liebster Blogging Award! I've never had that before so I'm so honoured - thanks so much Luhivy! The guidelines for the Liebster Blogging Award are that you have to state 11 facts about yourself, answer 11 questions left for you by the person who nominated/tagged you, tag 11 other bloggers and create 11 new questions for them to answer. Let's spread the love!

 11 Facts about me, Laura~!
1) I really like video games! I don't blog about them too often, unfortunately but I've played a fair few, including GTWA, Resident Evil, Half Life, Okami, Silent Hill, etc. My favourite genre is survival horror and I'm currently playing Assassin's Creed on the PS3 but I'm finding it hard to get's just a bit samey. I'm also playing Half Life: Opposing Force, an expansion pack for Half Life on the PC.
2) My hometown is Alfreton, a crappy little town in Derbyshire with not much going on in it. I currently live in Derby.
3) Even though there are Lolita and Lolita meets in places like Nottingham, Birmingham and Sheffield, I often travel up to Manchester and Cheshire for Lolita meets as I really love the girls there. I have been to a couple of meets in Nottingham and Birmingham though and want to get to know the community there.

4) I am addicted to lip balms. Seriously. They are dotted everywhere; in my handbag, around the house, next to my bed and I even forget them in Rob's shop sometimes. If I don't use them, my lips chap up within like, half an hour. >_<

5) I am currently motivated to save money for a Korean cosmetics order - after that, I want to finally go to Japan and achieve my dream! I know, pretty big step up from a make-up order! XD

6) I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace phone but I do most appy things and games on my iPod Touch. I'd quite like an iPhone as it'd be two devices combined into one. But one less case to decorate... >_<

7) My everyday fashion style varies depending on my mood...I don't dress in Lolita casually very often unless I haven't worn it in ages but I tend to dress in Goth, Punk (like today) and Cyber Goth (although I only have a few pieces). I'd like to dress more Gyaru, Fairy Kei and creepy cute in everyday fashion.

8) I cook every night for me and my boyfriend. I like cooking and Rob washes up because I hate washing up! So we have a good deal going on, I'm not complaining. :)

9) Following on from that, here's my general home life - I live with my partner, Rob, and have been with him almost 3 years now. I met him at work experience when I was 15, starting dating at 16, moving in at 17 and now I'm stuck here. ;) Help me.....

10) My favourite takeaway is Chinese but I have it once a year, if that, because Rob isn't a fan of it. It's also soooo not good for you (like I care?!)! My second favourite is Domino's pizza - I have a custom pizza with pepperoni, tandoori chicken, jalapenos and roquito sweet chilli peppers. I have a large and can have almost half for lunch the next day. >:3

11) My 5 year plan or whatever at the moment is make proper money (whether that's a job, putting more effort into my business or selling my organs), go to Japan and be able to buy nice clothes and not have to worry about money, get a cat and then I am thinking about training to be a nail technician and do works of art on people's fingers. :)
My Questions
1. What is your favourite fruit?
My favourite fruit is probably strawberries, cherries or watermelon! Unfortunately we don't buy fruit often because it's expensive... >_<

2. What literature genre do you like best?
Either non-fiction on the hobbies I'm interested in, especially geisha and Japanese culture in general or...Japanese fiction? If that's a genre...the best examples I can give are Natsuo Kirino, she writes really addictive, screwy stuff!

3. What are 3 of your travel essentials?
Make-up, hair straighteners and camera or iPod & charger!

4. If you had to choose between going to France or Italy, where would you go?
Italy sounds pretty nice but France does too...and France has Baby The Stars Shine Bright so France it is!

5. What is your idea of the ideal night in?
Domino's with a good film (preferably Asian horror) and snuggled up in a blanket with Rob all night! <3

6. What is your current desktop background?
It's an Angelic Pretty one with the Lady Rose print:

I have a ton of Lolita desktop backgrounds/wallpapers with Angelic Pretty, BTSSB, Innocent World, Black Peace Now, etc. on - I'll show you them all soon so you can use them yourself!

7. What are your favourite things to put on a sandwich?
Chicken and bacon, pepperoni, salami, jalapenos and peppers - not all at the same time though! But any combination of those is foolproof.

8. What is your current favourite song?
Vengeance by Abney Park, Lonely Cryin' Only by Therapy? or I'm Your Devil by Tommy Heavenly6 - such varied music tastes! XD

9. What is one thing that you would like to learn in the future?
I want to continue learning Japanese and will only go to Japan when I am fluent (or can be in almost any situation and be able to understand it).

10. Favourite dessert?
Key Lime Pie! So sweet and tangy! Not sure why it is called pie as it is cheesecake but whatever~.

11. Do you have any pets?
No! >:( I want a cat though, really badly. Especially since I am alone a lot during the day and it gets pretty, well, lonely. I'd love an Exotic Shorthair, this breed!:

My favourite colouring/markings would be white and ginger but I'm not that fussed - they're so adorable!

Tag, You're It~! <3

Whilst I'm here, here's my outfit I wore errand running today! Sorry for the messy room! >_< I'm making a Fairy Kei style salopette but I needed elastic for the legs so everything was put on hold until I got some more today. I've now realised that instead of putting together an outfit post every so often, I can slap them on blog posts at the end! ;)

T-shirt: Emilie Autumn
Skirt: Hell Bunny
Tights: eBay (You could also get them in Pound World for a short time and you can get them from Bodyline too!)
Shoes: T.U.K

I put my hair in pigtails and tried to wrap a bit of hair around the bobble to cover it but but it kept sliding down and my hair is so long it wrapped around too many times. >_< So I tied a "Punk's Not Dead" shoelace around each pigtail in a bow. ^_~ That's all for now, I can't wait to see who participates in the Liebster Blogging Award! <3


  1. Congrats on the award! I already said it, but it would be awesome if you became a nail artist! And I love cooking too, unfortunately I have to wash the dishes myself. XD

    1. Thanks so much! Aww, that sucks! But I tend to find when I have to do the dishes, it's not as bad as I make it out to be! XD

  2. You're learning Japanese? That's so cool! I'm currently learning French want to learn Italian. I bet you'll enjoy your future trip to Japan tons! ^^

    1. Yeah, I've been learning for about 3-4 years now but I'm teaching myself so it's so easy to procrastinate! With proper study I could've been fully fluent by now but really I'm just a bit above beginner! XD

      I used to learn French at school and I was actually the best in my class! My teacher gave me children's books to read whilst others did proper work but I forgot it all after Year 9, ha ha! Thank you, I really hope I do - thanks for your comment! <3
