Exactly one week ago I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Victoria from Shabby-Chic Home. I was really surprised and hadn’t heard of it before.
So for the people who are like me, I will explain just as Victoria did. The meaning of the Liebster Award is to get to know new bloggers that have under 200 followers on Bloglovin’ if you are selected for a Liebster Award by another blogger, you have to answer their 11 questions and tell 11 random facts about yourself. After you did that, you can also select 11 blogs you like that have under 200 followers and ask them 11 questions. They have to do the same and that way the new bloggers get a lot more attention.
I actually just found out that Danielle from Underland to Wonderland just nominated me too, but as I already nominated my 11 blogs I will include the answers of her questions in this post!
1. My full first name is Anne Dorothea.
2. I like big cities although I live in a very small village.
3. I own a motorcycle.4. My life wouldn’t be complete without peanut butter.
5. One of my favorite movies is Forest Gump.
6. I read a lot of Swedish Detective books.
7. I am addicted to my phone, I couldn’t do without.
8. My dream is to drive all across Europe on a motorcycle.
9. Sometimes I am really clumsy.
10. I buy high heels but I almost never wear them.

The questions that were asked to my by Victoria.
1. Why did you start your blog?
I started reading blogs when I was like 16 years old and started reading blogs like dulcecandy.com because I was already watching their YouTube videos. But then I loved reading about adventures people would go on and what they did. So I fell in love with a lot of Lifestyleblogs. Then I thought to myself, I like writing and I failed with writing a diary every. single. day. so why not start a blog with lots of beautiful pictures? And so I did, but I know I can still improve a lot, but I’m working on it! It’s a bit harder to write in English since I’m dutch, but I keep on going and hope my writing will improve.
2. How old are you?
I am 19 years old.
3. What’s your favorite phrase, quote or motto?
“You can’t always get what you want.”
These days people attach so much value to materialistic stuff, want to do 100 things at a time, have nice stuff. I mean, I get it, I am the same but you just have to appreciate what you already have and that You Cant Always Get What You Want. There are so many people out there who don’t have a loving family or a nice house.
4. What did you want to be when you were little?
I wanted to become an equestrian, I loved horses and horse-riding, I still do but I don’t have that much time for it anymore unfortunately.
5. Tea, coffee or neither?
6. Favorite movie line?
From the movie Forest Gump.
7. What’s your biggest fear?
To loose someone that is close to my heart. I have had it before and it is awful, for example I can’t imagine living without one of my parents.
8. What one celebrity would you be and why?
Emma stone, because she’s really funny and so down to earth and I wouldn’t mind having Ryan Gosling as a friend , as he and Emma are really close friends in real-life.
9. What are your top three favorite blogs right now?
10. Have you got any holidays booked for 2014?
No, since I am going to Malta for internships for 12 weeks I think that’s enough nice weather. Plus I have to work and prepare for moving out when I come back, because I will go study in another city in September.
11. Would you rather be rich or famous?
I’d rather be rich, because I think it’s horrible when you’re famous that you are being watched by paparazzi every day and they watch you every step of the way. I’d rather stay anonymous and be rich.
Questions asked by Danielle
