The Liebster Awards

Over the past couple of weeks I've had some really nice comments and feedback on this blog, along with a few new followers, all of which are very much appreciated! A few bloggers went one further by including me in their nomination lists for the Liebster Awards: 

Charlotte from Charlotte Rose
Zoe from xBeautyPie

Now, it's obviously not a real award, but the idea behind it is pretty adorable - to highlight and connect small blogs (under 200 followers) that are showing potential. This blog is just over a month old and I'm still getting used to the blogging scene so it's lovely to be included! Thanks guys!
