Bit of blogging participation.

So...I received a 'Liebster award' from Alice at TreatingTemptation
which i must say, is very lovely of you (If you're reading this) I've never really heard of it before, but I  think it seems like a great way for your followers to get to know you, and to also get to know other bloggers :-)

The rules:
1. Each person must list 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you, plus you MUST create a set of 11 new questions for the people you nominate.
3. Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post.
4. Go to their page and inform them of the nomination.
5. Absolutely NO tag backs.
6. Remember to only tag bloggers with less than 200 followers.

11 random things about me...
1.I eat all the time, my dad just said to me "If you carry on eating like that you'll be the size of a house." But it's hilarious because I eat all this food and yet I stay like a stick. It's also a bit annoying at times though I suppose. But for now, I'm embracing late night food binges.
2.I don't bother wearing matching socks anymore, I gave up when they kept disappearing! It makes life 10x easier.
3.I cry a lot, I cry at films, books, Eastenders funerals, When Team GB were participating in the rowing at the Olympics this year, literally anything. I'm such an emotional wreck.
4. I'm such a 'tom boy' type of person, I'm in no way a girlie girl.
5.I'm ridiculously bad at maths, When I see maths questions I just want to curl up in a ball and hibernate.  I have an E at maths GCSE, and I can't be bothered to re-sit it. I will eventually...
6.'Hysteria' by Muse and 'Mr.Brightside' by The Killers have the ability to make me go mental.
7. It's my dream to hire out a supermarket one day and have a group of friends there to play Supermarket Sweep, I think that would be the funnest thing in the world.
8.I'm a real Daddy's girl, me and my dad are so similar It's ridiculous. Laid-back, on another planet, dippy, nerdy. I can never be mean to him because I just feel bad.
9.I have a terrible habit of dressing like a scruff, I need to stop wearing gig t-shirts and Converse, but they're so comfy :3
10.When I was 10 I fell up the stairs and had to be carried down the stairs on a stretcher, Going down stairs on a stretcher is seriously the scariest thing.

Questions From Alice:
1. If you could go back in time where would you go?
This is really difficult, I'd love to be little again, because everything was easier when you were young, the only thing you had to worry about was missing an episode of Babar the elephant or the shops selling out of Jelly shoes.

2. You have to live off one meal for the rest of your life... what would you choose?
You say ‘Live off’ I don’t know if you would actually live, you’d probably die a slow obese death, but if I could I’d live off a Mcdonalds Big Mac with fries and a coke, and the sweet curry sauce. Omnom. I am seriously a crazy lover of Mcdonalds.

3. What is your favourite word? Either ‘Eloquent’ because it does sound eloquent and it’s just a nice word, or Ham. I can’t explain why I like the word ham, maybe It’s because I associate it with Ham from Toy Story.

4. Why did your parents name you what they did?
Apparently when my mum was carrying me I’d always kick when Neighbours was starting, I was born at something like 5.35 which is the time Neighbours used to be on, and there was a girl in it called Lauren, so they called me that. True Neighbours fans.
5. Choose an animal to represent yourself, what would it be and why?
A koala bear, because I’m lazy, I eat all the time and I’m quite timid.

6. What is your favourite colour?
In general I think teal/aqua kind of colour, because It’s a lovely soothing colour, and it reminds me of the sea. There’s certain colours which are always popping up in my design work, I created Photoshop swatches of my pastel coloured Converse so now I tend to use those which consist of lilac, baby pink, baby blue, lemon and a darker pink. I also like using CMYK in my work, don’t ask me why, It’s just a colour combination which shouldn’t go together, but it does.

7. Do you like Tea? if so what type and how do you take it?
I HATE TEA. You’ll all probably hate me for this. I tried tea for the first time a few months ago, I even had about three sugars in it, and it was still disgusting. I’m the worst excuse for a Brit ever.

8. Search the meaning of your name.. what is it?
"It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Lauren is 'the bay' or laurel plant. Feminine form of Lawrence or variant of Laura."
9. Dark, milk or White Chocolate?
I really like Dark chocolate, but then again I like milk chocolate, and I really like white chocolate, I’m just a general chocaholic. So I like all types of chocolate. But Dairy Milk Bliss is bloody amazing.

10. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
I always hate questions like this because I struggle to think of things. I’d have to probably say education wise, I'm proud of what I've achieved and the way everything's turned out, the way I've turned out as well, Because It's so easy to go off the rails when you reach a certain age.
