The Liebster Award

As a new blogger, you can imagine my surprise when the wonderful Nicole from inthelifeofnm contacted me, saying she wanted to nominate me for a 'Liebster Award'. For a start, I had never heard of this award, so I had to ask her straight away, to which she replied being really helpful and informative! So for those of you who don't know, the Liebster Award is an award to help promote, highlight and recognise new bloggers (like me!). I was so grateful to Nicole for contacting me, as she's now helped me understand more about the blogging world, as well as promote my blog! One thing I must say before I carry on however, is much I love Nicole's blog. She seems to balance life very well considering she's a mother, blogger and Youtuber! I love reading her posts, you certainly need to check her out! So, I would like to first off thank Nicole for boosting my confidence and also for the nomination!

I was quite confused, reading post after post about the rules for the Liebster Award, but I've finally got my head around it and here they are:
