Liebster Award

18 January 2014

Hi there guys :) I'm still getting to grips with blogging or blogging regularly, January is such a hectic month! but when I was reading through my comments (which are always lovely - thank you) I saw that Tansy PansyCasual Blogging and Nisha Petal had all nominated this blog for the Liebster Award! Thank means a heck of a lot and I feel so grateful so thank you :) 

At first I hadn't a clue what this was, I'd always seen it popping up other peoples blogs but never looked into it any further so I visited their blogs to find out exactly what is was. It's sort of like a Youtube tag and allows blogs who have under 200 followers a sort of platform and a chance to discover up and coming blogs and make new friends along the way. Its a really nice idea and seems to give new bloggers motivation that if they keep going it'll be worth it too. 

The rules are as following:
- mention the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
- answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you.
- nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
- create a new set of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

These are the question that I was asked by the lovely Tansy Pansy: 

1. What is your favourite fashion season? Spring/Summer? Autumn/Winter?
It'd a hard one, definitely a toss up between Spring and Autumn, I'm split between my love for pastels and warm cosy clothing as Autumns a good excuse to bundle up in big jumpers and scarves and resemble a snowman.
2. How long does it take you to do your makeup on a day-to-day basis? 
If I'm in a rush about 10-15 minutes, just some foundation, powder, mascara and that's me but if I have plenty of time I'll laze about and it can take half an hour, maybe more.
3. Favourite skin care product? 
I actually posted a review (link here) yesterday about my favourite skin care product at the minute.
4. Is there a novel/film/song that's changed your life or made you think differently? 
Theres more than a few that give you a change of heart afterwards, I think you just need to appreciate life, making the most out of things and to be grateful for what you have, your friends and family and most importantly your health.
5. What's your favourite high street shop? 
You can't go wrong with good old Primark, it's so handy but my all time favourite is either Topshop or New Look. Their clothes and shoes are amazing = not so good for my bank balance.
6. What item of clothing do you find yourself wearing the most? 
I bought a staple black bodycon skirt last year sometime from H&M and it's my go to skirt. It can be paired with practically anything and it's great for chucking on with some tights and ankle boots, perfect for the mornings when you want some extra minutes in bed.
7. If you had enough money to spend a day doing anything you wanted, what would you do? 
I think book all my favourite artists and just have a non stop concert, that'd definitely be a day to remember or my original plan travel the world, but I can't do that in a day unfortunately.
8. How do you beat the January blues? 
I try and save as much money as possible, have lots of pamper evenings and just spend time around family and friends - that always cheers everyone up.
9. Whats the best holiday you've ever had?
I loved going to Italy (on a school trip) it was absolutely beautiful and the weather while we were there was amazing! Aside from that I love going to Majorca/Menorca on family holidays, it always seems so peaceful compared to mainland Spain and the weather is always perfect.
10. What have you most enjoyed about blogging so far?
I haven't been blogging for that long, 18 days off and on in fact but I love discovering new blogs, talking to new people and reading other views and posts on things. It's always lovely!
AND finally as Valentines Day is fast approaching.... 11. Do you have any top tips for being single on Valentines Day!? 
A few big bars of chocolate, a bunch of movies and invite the girlies round for a movie night - just treat it like another day or else spoil yourself silly and do some retail therapy ;)

The questions I was asked by the lovely Casual Blogging: 

1.  What is the reason you started blogging? 
After discovering the world of blogging and Youtube I realised how fun it would be to get involved in something like that and with a passion for makeup and beauty I thought what could be better than starting up a blog. I'd wanted to take the first step and start one up months ago but I wasn't sure how to go about it but then I looked it all up and alas here we are.
2. Who is your biggest inspiration? (Non Beauty or Beauty related) 
I never really had a massive life changing inspirational person, I love my family and friends as they're so supportive and over the years there's always been the odd fashion inspiration but nothing major. A more recent non beauty inspiration is Demi Lovato - she's battled through so much and is such an amazing person. In a blogging aspect it'd have to be either Zoella, Louise or Tanya Burr.
3. Drugstore or high end. Your reasons. 
I like to buy high end things like most people but Drugstore wins, there's just so many new and affordable things to try out.
4. Whats your favourite go to make up look? 
I love just a natural looking base and eye makeup (sort of a my face but better look) and then adding a pop of colour on my lips, normally in the morning I don't have time for much else.
5. You're stranded on an island. Pick three celebrities to be there with you. 
Jessie J, Zac Efron and One Direction - I can't just pick one member so I'll have all five and count them as one ;)
6. What are you looking up to this year? 
I have a University tip to Cyprus which will be something different, my 20th birthday (its a massive one, goodbye teenage years), going to London, most of my friends are turning 21 at the end of the year so alot of parties and anything else exciting that happens.
7.  Where is your favourite place to write your blog? 
This isn't a hard one, either in front of the fire or on my bed. In the summer though I'll be a bit more adventurous and might start blogging from the garden.
8. Fav beauty book? Fav non beauty book? 
It would have to be Bobbi Browns Makeup Manual and the Harry Potter Series! I love them all and they're such a good read.
9. When did you start vlogging? Do you have a Youtube channel or are you willing to start one? 
I don't have a Youtube channel/vlog and I don't really know if I'd be willing to start one. I've only just started my blog so I'd like to get it sorted before venturing off, plus me being me I probably wouldn't even be able to edit the videos lol! That and I don't like my accent when it shows up on video oops.
10.  Skinny jeans or boyfriend jeans? 
Skinny jeans.
11. Tell us something about yourself.
This is my last year being a teenager (well half a year) although I look like a 15 year old so I'm going to make the most of it.

AND then the questions I was asked by the lovely Nisha Petal: 

1. Why did you start blogging? 
This is the same as question 1 above.
2. Heels or flats? 
Is it possible to have an in between, I love wearing ankle boots with a little heel? If not heels, I need all the height I can get lol!
3. Whats your favourite season? 
Summer if we get the weather that we're meant to get - I'm definately a summer baby :)
4. Which one beauty product could you not live without? 
I'd have to say mascara, my eyes look so tiny without it on and I'd be able to cope without foundation or concealer.
5. Are you an intovert or extrovert? 
Around people I don't know I'm awfully quiet but in the comfort of my friends and family I can be quite loud. I suppose it depends on the company.
7. Whats your favourite clothes store? 
Topshop by far, closely followed by Primark, Zara and New Look.
8. Favourite lipstick? 
The Kate Moss Lipsticks by Rimmel are probably my all time favourite - they're just amazing for the price that they are and there's so many lovely shades.
9. Whats your dream job?
This is something I haven't quite figured out yet but I've always got a couple of years to sort it.
10. Whats your favourite quote? 
I have loads I like but I've always thought this Harry Potter quote was a good one "happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light".
11. Your favourite cocktail? 
Sex on the Beach, yuum!
