I was nominated for a Liebster Award!

So today's post is something extremely exciting! I got nominated for a Liebster award for the first time by the lovely Jay, over at Blissful Beauty Bird! I have seen so many of these posts recently, all from people who have been nominated for this award, and I love reading them.... it is so good getting to know the person behind the blog in more detail!

Again, thank you Jay for nominating me... remember to check out her amazing blog HERE
Jay left me some questions to answer, so make sure to keep reading to see what I had to say!


If you are like me, and are new to the Liebster awards, then the rules are below:
1. Thank whoever nominated you
2. Post 10 facts about yourself (although this is not necessary)
3. Answer the questions the person who nominated you left
4. Nominate at least 5 but no more than 11 bloggers and let them know they were nominated
5. Create 11 different questions for your nominee's to answer.


Now I only recently posted some questions and facts on my blog, which can be read HERE. So that I don't bore you all, I will go straight to answering the questions!


1. What is something you feel strongly about?
That's difficult, their are lot's of things I feel strongly about... nevertheless, if I had to pick one, I would say equality in the world. What I mean by that is that everyone should be treated the same, with respect and dignity, no matter who you are, what you do or your beliefs etc! If I see someone being treated differently for any of these reasons it makes me extremely angry 

2. What is something you feel proud of?
I have always been proud of how far I have come in life since leaving school. I left school with no clue as to what I wanted to do, and I never had many qualifications... and even so, I have managed to get to my dream job, and got myself a few extra qualifications along the way,  despite the fact I never went to University or College. Between all that and starting my blog, I don't think I have done too bad for myself!

3. What are three words or phrases that make you laugh?
'Don't worry if plan A fails, there are 25 more letters in the alphabet'
'You can only be young once. But you can always be immature'
'He who laughs last didn't get it'

Yes, they are pretty random, but always make me giggle (the three were ones I learnt growing up in school)

4. What's the meaning behind your Blog name?
I think it is safe to say my blog name isn't the most exciting! Haha! I set this blog name up, hopefully only temporary until I can think of a name I feel is suitable for what I write... in the meantime, 'NicoleCorbettBlog' will need to do! At least you know who I am!

5. What inspired you to start a blog?
My job as much as I love it, and I love the people I work with, can get very stressful and I often come home exhausted! I am a lone worker which doesn't help either. I started this blog as a way of letting my creativity run wild and allowing me to go into my own little world. I always enjoyed writing, and although I wasn't very good at it when I was younger, I could see myself improving after only a couple of posts, which encouraged me to keep going!

6. How would you describe your style?
I always like to be smart and stylish, but never overdressed... so 'smart but casual' :)
I like to dress up and look smart, however, ensure that what I am wearing is comfy too! I wouldn't really say I have a particular style I wear though, I wear whatever I feel like wearing. 

7. Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
I hope to have advanced in my career and gained some more experience and qualifications. I also hope to still be blogging and hopefully by this point improved my skills enough to get my name out their, and begin to develop a small following.

8. What are you most excited about for the upcoming season?
I just love this time of year! Ii love getting wrapped up, and keeping myself cosy with a cup of coffee on a cold winter day (In Scotland, when I say cold, I do really mean cold, almost freezing, haha!)

9. Is there a vacation (holiday) spot you would visit again?
Their is so many! Of course I would love to go back to Florida again and go back to Disneyworld... it was just so magical! However another place would always be Amsterdam. I went a few years ago and I loved it, hopefully one day I will return again... the history there was fascinating

10. How would you describe your personality?
I would say I am very caring and like to help others when I can, however often do tell it like it is. Sometimes this comes across a bit forward, but I will always be honest with someone when they want me to be. I am very trustworthy though and always feel I give good advice :)

11. How would you like to inspire others?
I always remain positive and bubbly, whatever Ii do, and think that even just by smiling at someone, that it can be contagious. In this modern society, people are always rushing about and are often stuck in a rut, and I hope to inspire everyone to remember life is worth living, and their is no point spending your days being glum. If you start everyday with a smile, then you will have a more motivated and happier day... and who doesn't want that?



And that is my 11 questions!
