Liebster Blog Award

I was nominated by the very lovely Ozel for the Liebster blog award, so a very big thank you to her! 
I think the award is a really nice idea to give small or unknown blogs with under 200 followers a chance to get recognized in the huge old blogging community. 

The Rules
Each person must post 11 things about themselves. 
Answer the questions that the nominator set for you plus create 11 questions for your nominees.
Choose 11 people with less than 200 followers and link them in your post. 
Go to their page and tell them. 
No tag backs. 

1.My blog is called The Pale Female because I have incredibly pasty pale skin, along with really curly hair!
2.I have an iguana and am getting a lovely black kitten in a few weeks.
3.I collect plants, old fashioned crockery and velvet clothes. 
4.At the moment I am a fashion journalist, which I love, but eventually I would love to be an author and script writer.
5.I eat at least one chocolate bar a day. 
6.I moved to Paris for a year when I was 18 with my best friend and would love to live there permanently and open a book shop. 
7.Peacock feathers and lace are my favourite additions to anything.
8.My biggest inspiration is Kate Bush, I think she is just the most amazing and wonderful woman. You can read more of my ramblings on her here. 
9. I have been with my boyfriend for two and a half years and we both have freckly faces.
10.I sometimes still rent from a video shop and keep a list of every film I've ever watched.
11.I have always had a fringe and wonder if I always will.
