The Liebster Award

I've seen this around the blogging world ever since I started blogging, a year ago. A few weeks back Charlotte from the blog  Charlotte E Whitsey nominated me for the Liebster award read her post here.  So big shout out and thanks goes to Charlotte.

So to start we've a bit of admin to deal with all about the award before we get stuck in. Rule 1: thank the blogger who nominated you (thanks, Charlotte again). 2. Answer the 11 questions set by the nominee. 3 nominate 11 bloggers and give them 11 questions to answer. 
So let's get stuck into Charlotte's questions shall we, we all know how much I can ramble on.

 1. Why did you choose to start blogging?
I started my blog June 2016,  Lauren Catherine is my 3rd blog would you believe. In the past, it just didn't feel right at the time for me. I've grown up since my past blogs and I feel more myself now like I'll never be the best writer. I write how I would talk to my friends, that's just how I prefer it. It was actually an event I went to March 2016 because Joanne Larby one of my inspirations was attending. The event was all about beauty, blogging and business, it was that event that made me want to start my blog up again. I've actually a post all about why I started blogging, which you can read here.

2. What is your favourite book?
Now I've a lot of books, have I read them all? Nope. I don't think I have a favourite book so to speak, I fall in and out of love of reading all the time. But my favourite book this year has been Khloe Kardashian's book Strong looks better naked. I've never read a book that gives me a good kick up the bum that I needed, as much as this one gave me. here's a blog post where I go into more detail about Khloe's book.

3. What is the best place you have ever travelled to?
I'm 22 and I've been on my first foreign holiday this past summer, which some of you may be surprised by. I headed to Tenerife with my best friend's family, which was so nice. It was the holiday I needed to just get away from everything and just forget about reality for a week.

4. How long have you been blogging?
Well, Lauren Catherine has been up and running for just over a year now, which has flown in.

5. Who is your favourite musician/band, and why?
My favourite band has well and truly stood the test of time and that's Kings of Leon, from about the age of 14. So that's what a good 8 years, I finally got to see them live a few years back. About 4, at Tennent's Vital here in Belfast me and my friend, were right at the front which I'm still buzzing at  how close to the stage we were.

6. Does your blog have a certain niche?
I wouldn't even know how to describe my blog, I just write what I want to. A  bit of everything really.

7. What has been your most difficult post to write?
There are so many posts I'd love to publish but haven't grown a set to write yet. But if  I had to pick a post that I'm most proud I wrote is my anxiety and me, I really want to talk more about mental health on my blog in the future.

8. Would you attend blogger events?
Yeah, I've been to the Kiss summer party, held by Alex Silver PR, which you can read all about here. There's a lot of linking to past posts isn't there lol.

9. Do you have a favourite meal or snack?
Anything that involves peanut butter, simple as that.

10. Have you got any tips for new bloggers?
Honsetly just be yourself, write the blog you want to write. There's no right or wrong way to have a blog, if feel passionate enough and are willing to put in the time and effort then what's stopping you. Don't be afraid to make friends and talk to people online and finding bloggers around you can help. Also don't go into blogging if you want free stuff, money, fame. If that's why you want to start blogging, it's all the wrong reasons. Be respectful, be kind and be you.

11. If you had one wish, what would you wish for?
I'm not ready for this question, but if I had one wish it would be to go back and have a pint with my Daddy. He sadly passed away now just over 2 and a half years ago, so just even a 5 min conversation would be ok with me. 

Now time for my nominees, drum roll please lol

My questions to you lot are
1. What made you start a blog?
2. What TV shows have you been watching?
3. What blog post are you most proud of?
4. Have you any pets?
5. Any advice or tips to fellow bloggers?
6. How do you keep yourself organised with blogging?
7. What's one thing you've learnt from blogging?
8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
9. Coffee or tea?
10. A book you would recommend to anyone?
11. Snapchat or Insta stories?

So there are your questions and I hope you enjoy writing up your posts, really looking forward to seeing all of your posts.
Love Lauren xx
