The Liebster Award 🏆 | Answering Qs


I came back to London yesterday from Mauritius and am back to blogging after about 4 weeks off. I took this photo on holiday.

I was nominated by my Twitter friends April from Travelling Wanderer and Jennifer from Jennifer Grieve for the Liebster Award. 
The Liebster Award recognises new or smaller bloggers and helps to connect them with other bloggers. If you're a blogger reading this post, please so leave your links and a comment below. I love finding new blogs and connecting with other bloggers! I answered the bonus question instead of question 9. 

April's Questions

1. Tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it? 
I was inspired by other bloggers like Becky from Milk Bubble Tea, Dana from Wonder Forest and Tolly from Tolly Dolly Posh Fashion. I loved reading their posts and this encouraged me to start my own blog. I relaunched my blog and started blogging 53 days ago today; I love it. 

2. If there’s a takeaway you want visitors to leave your blog with what is it?
Look at the positives and appreciate everything you have. 

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Creative, Clever and Thoughtful

4. Would you explore the deep-sea or outer space?
I would love to see life in the deep-sea through a glass, it will be a bit more dangerous in real life.

5. If you could go without sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Read more books, learn more 'Life skills' and spend more time with my friends and siblings.

6. What advice would you give to new (or even seasoned) bloggers?
There are so many other wonderful bloggers out there to connect with, and getting involved with others helps to grow your blog.

7.  How do you create new content, when it seems like everything has already been done?
It's yours. That's what makes it different. No two bloggers are the same.

8. What are your top 3 travel destinations?
Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Italy/Greece/Canada. Ive been to Saudi Arabia before and loved it there so would love to go again in the future. 

10. If you could have a superpower what would it be?
To heal any health problems I have.

11. What do you want to accomplish in this life?
Have a good home so a good job, a family, learn to drive and cook, clean and be happy.

12. Bonus/Optional: where (if applicable) can readers find you on social media?
You can find me typing on Twitter, posting on Instagram and pinning on Pinterest (I use this very rarely!) Love finding new bloggers on social media, reading your tweets and seeing your Insta photos! For business enquiries, please email lailabee@msn.com

Cake Flavoured Books Tag

I'm doing the #CakeFlavouredBooks tag. I saw Cait do this tag on her blog Paper Fury and loved it so I wanted to give it a go (by the way if you love reading and all things book related you should definitely check her blog out. Her posts always make me smile and she uses brilliant gifs!) This is not sponsored by the way. The last cake flavour is my own because I felt that I wanted to include a book that haven't read yet too.

1. Chocolate Cake (A dark book you absolutely love)
Forget me never by Gina Blaxill
The police say it's suicide...
I love this book because it keeps you guessing and there's a sense of danger. I don't usually read too many dark books but this is one book about a death and is really engaging. It's not too dark and I first read it after meeting the author.


2. Vanilla Cake (A light read)
Girl Online by Zoë Sugg
This is a very cosy read and is about a girl called Penny visiting New York. She has a secret but so does somebody else...
I would also recommend The potion diaries by Amy Alward or Geek Girl by Holly Smale as light reads.


3. Red Velvet (A book that gave you mixed emotions)
Me before you by Jojo Moyes
Mmm...red velvet. 
Me before you is a very heart-warming story full of emotion. Have some tissues nearby just in case.


4. Cheesecake (A book you would recommend to anyone)
Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell
I don't think there's one book that EVERYONE will love. This book has a sense of mystery, emotion and danger. There is love and there is sadness.


5. Coffee Cake (A book you started but never finished)
To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee
Such a classic! I started this last year but never finished it. I should start over and read it all. It is an interesting read but I started Jane Eyre and never got back to it.


6. Carrot Cake (A book with great writing)
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
I think this is really well-written and has a great storyline.


7. Tiramisu (A book that left you wanting more)
Divergent by Veronica Roth
The hunger games by Suzanne Collins
Thrilling and action-packed adventures with emotion. The ending leaves you wanting to know what happens next and how everything has changed.


8. Cupcakes (A series with 4+ books)
Harry Potter books by JK Rowling
Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare
These are packed with plot-twists, emotion, memories and the stories are detailed. We get to know all the characters so well.


9. Fruit Cake (a book that wasn't what you anticipated)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
I did not expect the gothic elements that Brontë has in her book but I think it makes the book engaging and adds a sense of mystery.


10. Chocolate Oreo Cake (a book that you haven't read but want to)
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
I haven't read this yet but it looks interesting and full of action and adventure. If you've read it let me know what you thought in the comments.


If you want to see other books people have chosen for any of the above titles you can find more here: #bookstagram. If you love reading and cake why not have a go at this tag yourself? Feel free to give it a go and mention the bookstagram hashtag. Do you read often? Is there a book that you really love or want to read?

I'm going away in a couple of days for a month so will not be posting so often. I'll be back for September on here but may still use Instagram and Twitter.
