Liebster Award

Eek so first thank you to Ella at Gorilla Legs for nominating me, go check out her blog IMMEDIATELY. Or else.

Anyway, so eleven things about me...

1. I really want a pet snake, ideally called Shakira.
2. At the moment I have freakishly long nails, which were painted purple until about 2 hours ago.
3. I play the saxophone. Sometimes.
4. My favourite shoe shop is Irregular Choice, who do some seriously  funky wedges.
5. I am 5'8", although I would like to be taller.
6. I can nearly do the splits.
7. I don't ever cry.
8. I have a scar on my wrist from when I was 8 and I rope burnt it on a swing.
9. When I was little, I used to eat weird things, like Vaseline and cat food. I was also quite fat.
10. I hate mushrooms.
11. I can go without weeing for 36 hours. It's my special talent.

Aaaaaaand questions....

1. Shrek or Ice Age?

Shrek all the way. I don't think I've watched any ice age film all the way through.

2. If you were invisible for a day, what would you do?

I would probably run into a serious meeting and start dancing on the table. Or visit people I don't like and move their stuff around.

3. What is the colour of your walls/wallpaper in your bedroom?

Lime green, although most of my walls are covered in pictures.

4. Who is your current celebrity crush?

Ben Whishaw. I first saw him in The Hour, and then Skyfall and I was like WHO IS THIS BEAUTIFUL CREATURE.

5. If you could go back in time, where would you go?

To the Moulin Rouge in the 1890's. So i could meet Satine and sing Your Song to her, stood on top of the elephant.

6. What do you have an irrational fear of?

Spiders, babies/small children/childbirth, and at the moment, also sleep.

7. What book are you currently reading?

Atonement, which is a really good book but really wordy and so you kind of have to concentrate to read it.

8. Do you have a strange habit? What is it?

I always have to eat cereal really really quickly, because I hate it when it goes soggy so much.

9. Do you read Rookie? Why do you love it?

Yes! Rookie is basically the reason I started blogging, and I love it because it doesn't treat us teenage girls like vacuous idiots, like the rest of the media does.

10. What is your favourite song?

Absolutely any song by the Scissor Sisters.

11. If you were trapped in a vat of food and had to eat it to get yourself out of there, what food would you want to be trapped in?

Lettuce, because its quite light and you can eat lots of it without feeling sick, and so I would be fairly easy to escape the vat.

Okaaay so now I have to nominate some people, who have to name 11 facts about themselves, answer my 11 questions for them, tag eleven more people and give them eleven more questions. (I apologise for these being quite so random, I very quickly ran out of people to tag. Feel free to totally ignore this)

Tara A at Unlocking Pandora's Box
femme futures 
-a at wilting flower
dani at teenage moon witch
Hazel at Bonjour Girl
Kelsey Furigay at The Noisy Thinker
Melissa at WildFlowerChild
Ellie Connor-Philips at rose and vintage
Leila Rose at My Fashion Labyrinth.

And I do realise that I haven't nominated 11 people but I literally could think of no one else.....

1. What is your favourite type of footwear?
2. Do you find clowns scary?
3. What is the meaning of life?
4. What is the first object immediately to your left?
