6 times nominated for The Liebster Award ♥

Aloha my lovelies!
I have kindly been nominated for the Liebster award six times!, I'm thrilled! I have seen on a few people's blogs but never did I think I would actually get nominated?! I was kindly nominated by Georgina who you can find here Alice who you can find here Charli who you can find here  Georginana who you can find here and Jessica who you can find here and Anya who you can find here  - so thank you so much!

The idea behind the Liebster award is to get new blogs that are just evolving - noticed. I think it's such a great idea and I think it's a great way to get to know new bloggers!

Now without further ado I shall answer the 11 questions that Georgina has given me to answer and then answer the 11 questions Alice has asked me and Charli's questions and Georginana's questions and then Jessica's questions and then I shall tag 11 new bloggers who will answer the questions that I have set for them.

Georgina's questions

1) Why did you start blogging in the first place?
Back in 2013 I started this blog which was called something else to give me something to do. However I felt that as it was a new year I would start fresh therefore I created 'theperksofmeg' in 2014. I have decided that this will give me motivation to do things in my life and to get me into the beauty industry as it's such a great thing. Blogging is so much fun and very time consuming but by blogging I will make new friends and do something I enjoy.

2) What has been the most interesting thing (or simply your favourite) you have blogged about?
As I've just started my blog I haven't really done many blog posts however I did a blog about a under £5 homemade pasta bake meal and that went down a hit. If you want to read it the link is -

3) If you could be any superhero, who would it be?
I would be Catwoman just because she gets up to lots of mischief.

4) Your weirdest celebrity crush? (For example, I would marry Michael McIntyre, if he wasn't already taken. He is a funny funny man)
Johnny Depp just because he's such a great actor but he's quite an old choice aha.

My favourite brand of make-up is probably Rimmel because they have such great foundations.

7) The weirdest message you have every received?

When me and my friend was watching Sherlock and I shouted 'Look it's a bird' when it was a cat.

9) Favourite colour?
White because it is clean and fresh.

10) If you had to have your hair permanently straight or permanently curly, which would it be? (I know this is a weird one)

Now I have to tag 11 more people to answer the questions I will put below, I have searched and have picked 11 people, apologizes if you have already been tagged! Also apparently the rules say you have to pick people less than 200 followers but I found out that it was first started by a German blogger and the original rule was that it was given to bloggers less than 2000 followers so I'm going to go with that although most of the people have picked have under 200!  

So it took me a while to think of some questions to ask but here they are for all you lovely 11 bloggers! 

1) Why did you want to start a blog?
2) What got you into beauty/fashion?
3) What is your goal with your blog?
4) Weirdest or most fun blog post you've done?

I hope you have as much fun as I did by answering my questions!
