Liebster Award

Thank you to the gorgeous ladies Mia and Linda , who nominated me for Liebster awards. I'm so grateful to be nominated, as I think it's a great way to find out more about new and exciting bloggers - not that I consider myself to be particularly exciting... Anyway I hope you find this interesting to read, I know I love reading other bloggers' answers.

Here are the rules :

  1. Link back and recognize the blogger who nominated me.
  2. Answer the 11 questions that have been given to me by the nominator.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers for this award – they must have less than 200 followers!
  4. Create 11 questions for my nominees to answer
  5. Let my nominees know they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them. 

Mia's questions: 
If you could know any language, what would it be?
It's be so cool to know japanese or chinese, especially if I knew their alphabet too.
What is your must have beauty product?
Liz Earle cleanse and polish. Hands down. 
What is your favourite dessert?
Anything chocolatey, or in complete contrast a really good fruit salad
Do you prefer liquid, pencil or no eyeliner?
uhm, gel?... Out of those though it'd have to be pencil, so much more versatile.
What is your last memorable vacation?
I went to Egypt the other month so that memory is very fresh in my mind!
What made you decide to start a blog?
This is the 3rd time I have started a blog now, each time it has been because I have an interest in fashion and beauty and have been following bloggers and youtubers for years! The most recent push I had though was my university course and boredom over the summer.
What do you wish you could do better in terms of make-up?
My eyebrows! I can never get them perfect.
What do you want to end up doing in life?
I want Mary Portas' job, re-designing shops, re-branding companies, possibly my own clothing line.. all that jazz.
Do you prefer lipstick, balm or gloss?
Balm, I cannot be faffed with re-applying lipstick throughout the day.
Do you prefer soft waves or straightened hair?
Oooh, that's hard. I think soft waves are more flattering on me, but I prefer straightened hair because it's quicker for me to do.
Which beauty blog do you frequent most?
Lily Melrose's, purely because it was the first blog I followed so has probably had more views than the others.

Linda's questions:
What's you favourite jewellery brand?
Eclectic Eccentricity, I wore their pieces to my prom and everything is so gorgeous
What's your favourite song?
You by the 1975. I could listen to it forever.
What's your favourite UK city?
Has to be London, there's so much to discover.
Are you currently studying or working?
Currently I am working but in a month I will be back to studying
What made you start a blog?
Answered above ;)
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Far to many, I can't even count as they are dotted around various places. But I can safely say that I only alternate between 6 pairs - I should really have a clear out.
What's the first thing you would do/buy if you won the lottery?
I'd take my mum out on a shopping spree, have a lush girls day out and spoil her. Even though she'd hate it! But she really deserves a treat.
Do you prefer books or films?
Sadly I don't read that much anymore, so it'd have to be films
Are you a morning person?
If 11am counts as being a morning person then yes :)
Do you have a role model in life?
I guess Mary Portas is, because she has inspired what I want to do with my life.
If you could have any job, what would it be?

Mary Portas'! I'll stop banging on about her now, or you guys will start to assume things...

My Questions:

  1. If you could swap wardrobes with any celebrity who would it be?
  2. What is your favourite time that you have seen a band live?
  3. If you had £1000 would you rather spend it on clothes or beauty?
  4. What's your ideal holiday?
  5. If you could have one handbag, what would it be?
  6. What are your 3 favourite shops?
  7. If you could live in any other time period what would you choose and why?
  8. What was the first record you bought?
  9. If you could only buy one makeup brand for the rest of your life what would it be?
