Liebster Award Nominee

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award which to be honest is exciting.
Sorry to all of you wanting a film related post because this isn't on of those, it is more of a personal / blogging orientated post. Have No Fear! I have plenty of film orientated posts to come.
If you do not know, this award is for new bloggers who have less then 200 followers and aims to bring them more followers. It is a great idea and will help bring the blogging community closer together.

I would like to give a MASSIVE shout out and THANK YOU! to a very talented blogger and book reader -
Tanya at Keep Turning Pages
If you are thinking of reading a boko then check out Tanya's blog because chances are that she has read it and written an awesome review about it.
There are six rules for being nominated for the Liebster award.
1. Say a massive thank you to who ever nominated you because it is a honour!
2. Answer the 11 questions that have been asked by your nominator (I think that's the right word).
3. Tell 11 random facts about your self (Be creative!)
4. Nominate 11 bloggers who have less then 200 followers
5. Ask your nominees 11 questions of your own (again, be creative!)
6. Let them know you have nominated them. It's the 21th century so you have limitless options. email, text, google hangouts and other social media messenger services.
1. Why do you blog and how long have you been blogging for?
I am a film fanatic, I can talk film for ages even if you don't want to hear about it. When I first started I watched around 7 films a week (not my best moment) most of which my friends had not heard of. This is why I started a blog, someone ought to have heard of them and are willing to share their opinions. I have been blogging for 7 months now and I am loving every minute of it!
2. When do you blog?
I try to blog often, around 3-4 times a week. Sometimes this does not happen but as Christina Perri says - "I'm only human!"
3. What's your favourite TV series/movie and why?
I watch a lot of film so I enjoy many however my favourite film has to be "Heartbreakers" (2001) which I am trying to write a review that will live up to the film. Heartbreakers has a great cast and the comedy is brilliant. I really don't understand why it often gets bad reviews, I've lost count the amount of time's I have seen it.
Now TV series'. Like films I am a huge Telly addict. I watch many however my favourite is a but of a mash up. My favourite has to be Covert affairs however I love Nikita, Suits, Graceland, arrow, Rookie Blue, Smallville and homeland ( more).
Covert affairs takes top because the cast is awesome and it never fails to surprise me (which is rare). They completely change the story every season so unlike some TV series' (Heroes) you always have someone new to hate.
4. Who is your favourite actress/actor and why?
My favourite actress has to be Sigourney Weaver. Apart from having an annoyingly difficult to spell name I can't fault her one bit. She was brilliant (or as some people may say "amazeballs") in Heartbreakers and every other film she has been in. She is one of those timeless actresses.
5. If you could describe yourself in one sentence, what would it be?
The better twin. (pretty self explanatory)
6. If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
I would be a vulture because I want to fly and they look very cool.
7. How do you spend your free time?

8. Tell me one thing that you love.
9. Tell me one thing that you hate.
People that hate bloggers
10. If you had the option to live forever, would you choose it? Why?
Yes because I love learning / seeing new things! Plus I could be the oldest blogger ever!
11. Do you like Harry Potter?
Yes, Emma Watson is great!
11 Random facts about me
1. I am a twin (which explains question 5).
2. I am a self confessed TV / Film addict.
3. I am a techy.
4. I don't drink alcohol.
5. I am a fussy eater (to be fait I have to be being lactose intolerant and all).
6. I am extremely organised and always turn up early.
7. Nissan Skylines are my favourite + ideal car (R34 Model).
8. Skylar grey and Sia are my favourite music artists.
9. I consider myself a people person (in an awkward type of way).
10. I often quote films, usually at random - irrelevant times.
11. I refuse to conform with the social norms (but not in a mental disorder type of way... I studied psychology last year).
I nominate (just because I nominate you doesn't mean you need to do this, DO IT!
