Oh my stars! I've been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award! Thanks to Karli at hello darlin'
for thinking of me and little slice of the blogosphere.

The Liebster Award is awarded by bloggers, for bloggers. It spotlights new or up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. It's a great way to find new and noteworthy blogs.

The Rules:

1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.

6. I have a birthmark shaped like Australia.
7. I like to think I have a very vivid long term memory, I can recall exact moments from very early on in childhood - like down to what I was wearing and exact things that were said. However my short term memory is the exact opposite.
