I've been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by the lovely Maybe Its Megan LeighBryany Ellen and Paris Beauty Boutique which I was so surprised about! I wasn't sure what a Liebster Award was but after doing some research - Liebster translates to "favourite" in German, so it's a way of showing the blogs that you really like. I think it's such a good idea to find new blogs and 'meet' new people.

Rules if you have been nominated:
1. Tell 11 things about yourself
2. Answer 11 questions asked by the nominating blogger (the one who nominated you)
3. Nominate 11 new bloggers with less than 200 followers
4. Ask 11 questions to the bloggers you nominate

11 facts about me:
1. I'm a very fussy eater, I hardly like anything - so annoying.
2. I'd love to be a nursery teacher.
3. I'm a bit of a tomboy.
4. I love doing accents. Yorkshire accents are my fave.
5. I want to live in the New Girl flat.
6. I had braces for over a year.
7. People often say I resemble a monkey.
8. I can barely go a day without chocolate. Pretty sure it's addictive. 
9. I passed my driving test first time, wey.
10. I love One Direction. I am not ashamed.
11. I like to tweet Calvin Harris when I'm drunk.

11 questions Maybe Its Megan Leigh asked:

    I've been obsessed with blogs and youtube for years and always wanted to start my own, finally one day I did and I've loved blogging so much.

    Phil Bardsley's wife..
3. One food you couldn't live without?

    More than I should - ultimate procrastination

9. What is your signature scent?
    I haven't found one yet, my current favourite is Flora by Gucci
10. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
     Ha I have no idea. Me and my mam like to think pea has some sort of meaning like.. 'Beauty Personal Engaging Advice' but really, I just thought pea sounds cute. My boyfriend now calls me little pea.

    Heels - but wedges, I can't walk in heels.

    I went to Mallorca last summer with my boyfriend and his family.

    I don't think I have one, maybe my Naked palette or Dr Jart BB cream.

3. What do you love most about blogging?
    'Meeting' so many new people and I love the interaction
4. How do you deal with negative feedback on blogging?
    Thankfully I haven't had to deal with any negative feedback yet, but I'd probably just delete the comment. If it's constructive then I'd take it on board but when people deliberately try to hurt people it's just sad.

    I don't have one, I'm constantly change up what I use and love trying new products.
6. What is your best beauty tip?
