Liebster Award

Yaaaay! We were so excited when we found out that we’d been nominated for the Liebster Award, we’ve seen it passing around so many times, so thank you so much to Frankie from Frankie Fancies for the nomination!

So here goes, these are our answers to Frankie’s thought-provoking questions –

1.What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?

Amy – To go to New Zealand and Australia (this is happening very soon, ekkkk), attend TomorrowLand festival and learn to ski/snowboard to a decent level.

Billie – Go on a safari in Africa, do a complete city tour of Europe and go on the longest zip wire in Europe!

 2.Who is your biggest inspiration, and why?

Amy – It may sound a bit morbid but I don’t have one specific person that I look up to in particular. I think my whole family are incredible but I don’t have one specific person.

Billie – For me, surrounding myself with the people who make me happy and the people who want me to succeed is the biggest inspiration in my life because it’s truly the most motivating thing in the world.

3.Why did you start blogging and what is your favourite thing about it?
Billie – I work in marketing and blog as a part of my job. I took English Literature as an A-level and have always enjoyed writing and reading it, but didn’t actually realise how much until I started having to do it at work. One day I had a surge of motivation and wanted to start blogging about my life and the things that make me happy, so asked Amy if she was up for it too! My favourite thing about it is it’s my little place where I can ramble on about my thoughts and what I’ve been doing in a creative way.
Amy – I started a Youtube channel a while back and always wanted to get into blogging so when Bills suggested it to me, I was so up for it! My favourite thing about blogging is that it’s a platform to remember some amazing memories and I love the fact its something I can call my own.
 
4. What’s the weirdest thing about you?
Billie – When going through a drive-thru to get food I literally find it impossible to stay composed. If I need to order more than 3 things there’s a 99.9999% chance of me getting the giggles and ending up in tears. It’s pretty strange I know.
Amy – I have an unhealthy obsession with Ham.
5. What is your favourite thing to do in your spare time?
Amy – Spending time with friends & family or catching up on YouTube videos if i just want to chill.
Billie – At the minute my boyfriend is back from university for the summer, so love making the most of it by spending time together (and doing the things that his student loan won’t cover during term-time haha!)
6. What is your dream career?
Amy – I would love to be a fashion stylist / buyer.
Billie – I always said I wanted to work in Marketing in the Beauty Industry, so I’m super lucky that my first full-time job has given me the opportunity to do this! I’d love to work for the big corporates in the industry and work in London.
7. What annoys you?
Billie – WHEN PETITE CLOTHES STILL DON’T FIT!!!
Amy – When people cancel plans at the last minute (lol) and when people are rude.
 
8. What are your short-term goals?
Billie – I’m coming to the end of my level 3 apprenticeship in marketing and am planning to start my Chartered Institute of Marketing Level 4 qualification in September, so I really want to work hard and pass that with a really good result.
Amy – I am going to New Zealand in a few months, so my goal is to head over there and push myself out of my comfort zone.
9. What are your long-term goals?
Amy – My long term goal in life is to be genuinely happy with whatever life throws at me.
Billie – I couldn’t agree more with what Amy said! The goal is to always have a job I love and be surrounded by the people I love. One day, I’d love a traditional wedding and would love to have children.
10. If you could be anyone else for a day who would you be?
Billie – Kendall Jenner – she’s absolute perfection!
Amy – Probably a massive celebrity so I could see what its like to live a day in their shoes.
11. Who makes you happiest?
Amy – I couldn’t pick one, it would have to be out of my Mum, Dad, Sister, Nanna or Jake.
Billie – Same as Amy, my family and boyfriend. Family meals out always result in tears of laughter and hysterics.
