Liebster Blog Award

Recently I was lucky enough to get nominated for the Liebster Award by Meghan Silva :)

The rules are:

  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  • Answer 11 questions the tagger has asked and ask 11 questions for the people you've tagged.
  • Choose 11 people and link them in the post and let them know.
  • and you cannot tag the tagger.


  • 11 Things About Me:

    1. I'm doing my PhD in Supramolecular Materials Chemistry (with a side-focus in Bioinorganic Chemistry). (Yeah, that face that you're doing now? I get that a lot.)
    2. I'm a red wine addict.
    3. I mirror write more often than I write "the right way around".
    4. I have size 3 feet and I'm 5'1" tall.
    5. My favourite colours are purple and grey.
    6. I hate not wearing nail polish.
    7. I write short stories and random scenes when I have free time.
    8. I'm incredibly short sighted. Like can't-see-anything-past-the-tip-of-my-nose-in-focus short sighted.
    9. I'm an introvert.
    10. I'm almost always with my smartphone in my hand.
    11. I'm completely and utterly crazy. I absolutely march to the beat of my own drum.



    Questions from Meghan:
    1. What makes your blog unique?
      I think my blog is unique because it's about me - what I'm wearing, using, eating, doing, thinking, etc. And I'm quite a unique individual!
    2. How long have you been blogging?
      I've been blogging on Whimsy Is Forever for just over a year, but I've had four blogs over the last 7 years.
    3. flats or heels?
      I always used to be a heels girl, but now I find myself living in flats all the time because of my job (heels in the lab just aren't comfortable or safe).
    4. If you could live in any era which would it be?
      At the moment, I'm in love with the 1920s.
    5. Which blog is your absolute favorite?
      Ooh, no way I could chose just one. There's easily a dozen that I love love love and just can't wait until the next post comes out.
    6. Where do you see your blog in 1 year?
      As a bigger, better community.
    7. How important is fashion in your life?
      Pretty important. I dabble in trends quite a lot, but I'm pretty good at sussing out what will and won't work on my figure, so I interpret fashion to suit me. (Hint: lots of things do not work on petite but curvy girls).
    8. In 5 words how would you describe yourself?
      Dreamer, thinker, observer, whimsical, intellectual
    9. Favorite song at the moment?
      Bon Jovi - You give love a bad name (I've been listening to Bon Jovi on repeat since the EPIC concert on Tuesday!)
    10. What would be your one blog related tip for people who want to start blogging?
      Blog about what you love. Don't write a post that you wouldn't be interested in reading.
    11. Whats your beauty secret?
      Learn to listen to your skin and understand what it needs.
    As I've answered to my nomination quite late, I'm not going to tag anyone as most of the people I would have tagged have already been nominated.
