Liebster Blog Award

So I've been nominated for a Liebster Blog award by the lovely Adele. I'd like to say a huge thank you to her for picking me to do this! I didn't really know  what this award was at first but I think I understand now. I think it is basically a chain that is sent from blog to blog that each have less than 200 followers. The blogger being nominated gets to choose nine bloggers that stand out to them in particular to nominate the award to.

So here are the rules, they vary but these are the ones that were on Adele's blog.
  • Thank the person that gave you the award and put a link on your post to their blog.
  • List 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  • Choose 9 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate.
  • Go to each bloggers page and let them know you have nominated them for the award.

 Firstly here are the 11 facts about myself.

1. My name is Chloe Jane Schofield but you will hear me refer to myself as Chloe-Jane every so often because ever since I was little I have always wanted to have a name that was long and pretty like my Mum's, Katy-Marie.

2. I live in the North of England, we moved up here just under five years ago. We all originally come from the North East of Enlgand but work drove us to live up here instead. I hated it here for years but I think as I have begun to settle down it has become a lot easier. I think I could even say I much prefer it in the North now!

3. I am really into making things, even though I can quite often be awful at crafts.

4. Became an Aunt this year, WAHOOO!

5. I am just a teeny weeny bit of a bone china freak, hence my shop Lobley Cottage.

6. I love make up so, so much. Yet I hardly ever wear any. I don't have half as much as most girls and I never seem to find the time to really start getting into it. Cough, or the money.

7. Went to see Les Miserable at the cinema last week with Chris, literally the best film I have ever seen. And that is not just because it has French people in it and Anne Hathaway!

8. Find myself a little in love with these two:
They just make me giggle and they give such good advice too! What more could a girl ask for?

9. Talking about giggling my favorite TV program ever is 'Miranda.' I don't usually like comedy shows but this one I can not get enough of. Embarrassingly my Mum has stared to be just like Miranda since we have been watching it!

10. I have been educated three different ways.
. At home.
. At a public school
. At a private school
The first one was by far the best! 

10. I come from a long line of  traditional Traveler's but our family stopped once my Uncle was born so no travelling for me!

11. Redbush Vanilla Tea is something I am thoroughly addicted to.

The questions Adele had for me

1. If you could live anywhere in the World where would it be?
I would absolutely love to live in the Lake Districts in a big old house with lots of land. It is just so pretty up there. Although, I might have to get my family and friends to move in with me!

2. If you could only shop in one clothes shop for the rest of your life what would it be?
I think if I was feeling naught it would have to be Ruche. Otherwise it would be the Charity Shop.

3. Who's your favourite band/singer?
Can't really answer this one as I am not really into music much but I enjoy listening to accustic things. I do think that the'piano guys' are quite nice to listen to around the house though.

4. What's your favourite hobbie?
I think just generally being creative is something I enjoy. Photography, baking, sewing, make up. It's all so good!

5. Summer of Winter?
Winter! I love the snow and the festivities that come with it, as childish as it sounds. 

6. What's the best book you've ever read?
My favourite book is the Bible, I love history and I love God, what more could I want?

7. Favourite song?
'What Makes You Beautiful' it is so sweet, it makes me happy!

8.What would you like to be doing in 10 years time?
A Mummy! I really hope my bone china business might lift off quite a bit by then too.

9.Biggest girlcrush?
Louise over on Sprinkle of Glitter, I'd so love to be her friend in real life. She is just so lovely!

10. What is your favourite beauty product?
I think my all time favourite product would have to be  Pixi Endless Silky Eyeliner in black. It just comes off the pencil so easily and it feels so much nicer too!

11. Biggest guilty pleasure?
My biggest guilty pleasure is eyeing up all of the beautiful up market make up on-line. He, he!
