In My Blogroll

I got a very lovely response from Stephanie over at Lush for Leather (+Stephanie Nwaiwu)  nominating me for the Liebster Blog Award! It’s a really cute idea so I’m entirely on board with it!
What is the Liebster Award?
It’s an award given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers (I got it a few days ago before I went over the mark!). The meaning of it is German, not that I speak a word of it, and means “sweetest, dearest, lovely, kind and welcome.” I think it’s a really cute idea to share around the Liebster award… So here’s my contribution!
The Rules Are:
Make a post about the Liebster award and thank the blogger who nominated you.
Tell 11 interesting things about yourself.
Answer the 11 questions of the blogger who nominated you.
Nominate 11 fellow bloggers for the award (they must have less than 200 followers) and let them know that you nominated them.
Write 11 new questions for your nominees.
11 Facts About Myself:
1. I plan to open my very own vintage themed cafe someday.
2. I speak French and currently live in Paris.
3. I’ve been dying my hair brown since I was fifteen despite the fact that my hair is naturally brown anyway.
4. I study Law and French Law.
5. I’ve attended school (albeit briefly) in three countries – Ireland, France and Kenya.
6. I like picnics. A LOT.
7. I can’t roll my tongue.
8. I worked in Disneyland.
9. I’ve broken eight out of ten toes.
10.  I drink hot chocolate with a teaspoon. I’ve drank it like that since I was small.
11. I hate coffee.
Answering Stephanie’s Questions:

1. Who is your idol?
I don’t really have an idol, but in terms of people I admire, I’d say it would probably be my mother. She’s a ridiculous character, but loveable nonetheless. Growing up, my father was always away on various missions with the army, so mum had a lot of single-parenting to do. She had so many roles to play and so much going on all the time… I’m pretty sure I could never do all the work that she did without cracking up. She’s one of the quirkiest, bubbly, socialable and generally lovely people I know and I’m very lucky to have her as a mother.
2. What do you want to do?
With my life? Ammm… Law. Definitely law. Then afterwards open a vintage cafe! See my 11 random facts.
3. Where do you want your blog to take you?
It’s not really taking me anywhere – I’m taking it with me! My blog is kind of like a diary that I’ve been keeping, only one that everyone and anyone can read. I’m an open book at the best of times, so I figured I might as well write about it all. That’s why it’s As Told By Sorcha – it’s my autobiography in the making… A souvenir for when I’m old and need things to remind me of what I did when I was younger!
4. Any blogging resolutions?
Every blogger always has the same one – blog more consistently. But I think I’m doing a good job of it at the minute, so I won’t be too hard on myself if I don’t stick to it! Life sometimes gets in the way.
5. What’s one trend of 2013 that you want to go away?
I’m still not the biggest fan of double denim…
6. Most expensive item you own?
Probably my laptop.
7. What’s your favorite band/song?
This changes a lot, but I’m a huge fan of Keaton Henson’s Lying to You.
8. Favorite TV Show?
I don’t watch TV much at all, so I can’t say. I’ll watch anything really.
9. Favorite Month?
June! Everyone loves the start of summer. It’s also my birthday, it’s right after exams are finished and most of my favourite memories occurred in June!
10. One item you wish you owned?
I’d really like an old fashioned leather suitcase. I’m not sure how I’d cope with carting it around airports, I can see how that’s not feasible, but I think it’d be wonderful to have nonetheless. I’d get stickers and cover it in them.
11. What does fashion mean to you?
I’m not great at following trends but I’m absolutely fine with that! I like vintage-inspired dresses (in case that isn’t already obvious) and the more creative an individual is with their style, the better. I only wish I had the character of some of my friends so that I too could pull off half of their wardrobes!
