The Liebster Award

So the lovely Astrid  and Amy have both nominated me for the Lievster Award and so I thought I'd combine both of their nominations into one post! Now I've never heard of the Liebster Award before, apart from browsing blogs and occasionally coming across the button and was quiet intrigued as to what it actually is and for those of you who don't know here's a description:

"So what's The Liebster Award? It's a way to get new bloggers with less than 200 followers more recognition! If you get nominated then you must answer the 10 questions set by the person who nominated you, and in turn nominate another 10 bloggers and set your own 10 questions for them to answer :) The official rules are:

You must link back to the person that nominated you.
You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to your by the nominee before you.
You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees."

So here's the first lot of questions given to me by Astrid :)

  • Favourite Youtuber? My favourite youtuber is Mandy, she's lovely and very down to Earth, She's very genuine and has her own little beauty channel as well as her main channel where she vlogs about her life as well as the occasional comedy sketch!
  • Favourite beauty icon and why? Hands down it has to be Grace Kelly, her look is just timeless and she's just so breathtakingly beautiful.
  • Favourite make up brand? At this moment in time Bourjois is my favourite drugstore brand but Estée Lauder is a close second.
  • Pick one beauty product you can't live without: LIQUID EYELINER! Whenever I wear make up, liquid liner is something I never go without. My eyes feel bare without it and what girl doesn't love a little cat eye?
  • Why did you start blogging? The blogging community always seemed so friendly and I wanted to share my interest with other people who have similar interests to me. I've also recently been diagnosed with Dyslexia so this is a great way for me to try and improve my grammar and punctuation.
  • Favourite book? Oh gosh, now I'm not too sure about this! I used to read a lot of Winnie the Pooh books when I was little so I'm going to go with that!
  • What inspires you? My Nan is a huge inspiration to me, she's helped my family out so much over the years and she's the nicest and most generous person I've ever met. She's my favourite person in the whole world and she's like a second Mother to me. She doesn't look bad for 92, eh?

  • Favourite make up look? I love a smokey eye look as sported here by Mila Kunis, major girl crush!

  • Favourite piece of clothing/accessories? I love wearing skirts, especially thick material ones and my favourite accessory is my vintage bag!
  • Describe yourself with one word: BUBBLY :)

And here are the questions given to me by Amy!

  • What's one food that you can't stand? Curry, urgh I hate it, I'm not a fan of spicy food and curry just smells horrible!
  • Do you have any Brothers or Sister? I have an older sister called Georgina, she's 3 years older than me and she's just turned 24. She's my bestfriend and I don't know what I'd do without her.
  • What's your favourite high-end makeup brand? Estée Lauder.
  • If you were given £100 to spend in one shop, which shop would you choose? Oh gosh, I'd have to say either Primark, as you can buy so many different items as they're so cheap, or H&M! I love their clothes, but sometimes their dresses don't always suit my body shape :(
  • Have you ever dyed your hair? Oh dear.. well, I dyed my hair red last summer, I loved it but it kept fading really quickly, then in December I dyed it black. HUGE MISTAKE. My hair is naturally dark brown and black hair just made me look washed out. I ended up spending nearly 12 hours in the saloon getting it bleached, stripped and then redyed back to my natural natural colour. NEVER AGAIN.
  • What's your favourite kind of book/magazine to read? I love reading fashion magazine or anything related to photography :)
  • What's the name of your first ever best friend, and what's one of your best memories together? My first ever best friend was a girl called Danielle, we met at playgroup and my favourite memory was when I went round her house for dinner and it turned into a huge sleepover as we both cried when my Mum came back to take me home!
  • What would be your dream ice-cream flavour? (It can be as crazy as you like!) Hmm vanilla ice cream with marshmallow fluff and caramel!
  • What do you love most about blogging? I've met so many fantastic people so far and I've only been blogging for two months!
  • What's at the top of your wishlist right now? This beautiful palette by Thebalm.
