Liebster Award!

Now I've seen this title been floating around the blog-sphere a while now either on posts or down the side of the blog, I've always wondered what you had to do to get nominated (this is when I first started) then kind of forgot. But today I had a lovely little comments on one of the posts from PrettyBritish44 and Sarah Smiles saying that they'd nominated me. I've done a little research about it and other's who I'd nominate so here we go! 

The Liebster Award was created to help bloggers with under 200 followers get noticed. The rules are as follows...

  • If you get nominated you must acknowledge the blogger who nominated you
