I've been nominated for a Liebster Award!

So, this afternoon I was twiddling my thumbs (not literally, of course) and having a skim through my little list of blog post ideas. Then, up popped a notification from Twitter telling me that I'd been nominated for a Liebster Award!
Thank you so much to the lovely Sasha of SashaHope for nominating me! Funnily enough, I've ben trawling through other people's blogs recently, (as you do) and reading through several Liebster posts, thinking 'oh, hopefully next year' ecetera. I'm delighted. So again, thank you Sasha!
Rules of the Liebster Award

1) You have to link back to the person that nominated you.
2) Write 11 facts about yourself.
3) You must answer all 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
4) After completing these questions you must nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers and give them 11 questions of your choice.
5) You must not nominate the person who nominated you.
6) You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.
11 Facts About Me
1) I despise chocolate. What? Really? Yeah. As weird as it is, chocolate gives me excruciating migraines. It's such a shame as the smell of it is bea-uuutiful! And it's so annoying when people assume you're 'on a diet' when you turn down the offer for some! 
2) I used to suffer from anxiety. Bit of a weird one, and by no means a cry for attention or help. It's just nice to be able to share that getting over things of a similar nature isn't impossible! Blogging really puts me at ease as it's allowed me to be more open and find positivity in little, simple things! Keep pushing! 
3) I have an obsession with storage of any kind. I wouldn't even play that statement down, it's an obsession. I'm sure many (beauty especially) bloggers will understand this, and I'm currently trying to channel it as a positive thing!
4) I hate talking about myself. (This list is taking me hours and I keep having to come back to it!) 
5) I am admittedly too materialistic. I love my belongings, nice belongings, belongings which I've worked hard for and belongings that mean a lot to me. That's okay, surely? 'Say belongings again' belongings. Looks less of a real word the more you look at it. 
6) I have a strong penchant for trainers/menswear. 
7) I am a huge football/soccer fan. Manchester United are my childhood, teenage and ultimate favourite team in the world. Go go, Man United!
8) I am rubbish at maths. If you asked me to recite my times tables, I couldn't. 
9) I never want my dog to die. She's probably one of my best friends and the thought terrifies me.
10) Gherkins are my favourite food. I don't get why nobody likes them. And olives, mmm.
11) My name's Greek and probably isn't pronounced how you think it is! (Elle-N-EEEEE)
Answer's to Sasha's questions
1. Do you speak another language? If not, would you like to?
I speak Greek, a bit of French, a bit of Spanish, bit of Swahili... bits and bobs really! 
2. If I gave you £100 to give to charity, which charity would you donate to and why?
Is it okay to say I wouldn't? I'd probably go and find somewhere/someone who needs it by going out and having a look first hand. 
3. Favourite type of foreign food?
It'd have to be olives. I've grown up on Greek food!
4. Chicken or beef? (Or vegetarian?)
Oh gosh, I don't know if I could be a vegetarian! Going to have to say chicken, always. 
5. You can only ever buy high end OR drugstore make up from now on. You earn the same amount of money. Which do you choose?
Hmmm. Drugstore! So many good dupes out there and it'd definitely save my purse a lot of damage.
6. Evening make up in the daytime or daytime make up in the evening?
Daytime make up in the evening, nothing wrong with playing it safe!
7. You can buy EITHER make up OR clothes for the rest of your life. You are allowed to keep your current collection of both. Your current make up and clothes are magical and they last forever. Which do you choose?
Oh gosh, clothes! Madness. Thanks for that question Sasha, took me about ten minutes thinking time! 
8. If you could change one thing about the way you look, what would it be?
I'd probably say the removal of my freckles, I've always been conscious of them but love other peoples'! 
9. What is your blogging aim? E.g. Get 2000 bloglovin followers, you can write your aim for this week/month or your ultimate aim.
I don't want to be too hopeful, but my blogging aim is to genuinely interest as many people as possible. If I had 100 followers who I could interact with, I'd choose that over having 100k who were just making up the numbers. Although, a few hundred by September would be quite nice ;)
10. Do you prefer having one best friend or a group of friends?
A group - always! It's nice to be friends with lots of people in different 'friendship groups'. 
11. Would you rather wear the same colour lipstick or the same colour nail polish forever?
Probably nail polish. I couldn't face walking into MAC and not having the option to pick up a lipstick!
