Liebster Award

A huge thank you to my friend Sonja from Troves and Roses for nominating me for the Liebster Award! She has a gorgeous blog and always gives me amazing products recommendations that my face always loves (my bank account, not so much).

The rules of the Liebster Award are below;

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you with a link back to his/her blog

2. Answer the questions asked by the nominator

3. Nominate 5-10 bloggers with under 500 followers

4. Create 10 questions for the nominees to answer

These are the questions from Troves and Roses:

1. Why did you choose to start your blog?

I started this blog ages ago as a place to write poetry, put up articles I'd written for newspapers, share photography and write comment pieces. It sort of became a haven where I could just write whatever I wanted. It has continuously changed but it is still a place that I'm not afraid to write down anything and everything!

2. What's your earliest memory related makeup?

My earliest memory of makeup is extremely strange ... I'm not sure if anyone remembers those Polly Pocket heart houses? Well my Grandma got me one and it had these sides that would pull out and lipgloss inside was. It was the ultimate 90's need-to-have. It was awesome. Do you think they still sell them?

3. What's your holy grail one product?

Just one?! Okay, this would have to be my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - I'm too obsessed and wear it on a daily basis

4. What's your favorite drugstore beauty brand?

Rimmel London. I love their lipsticks to death and they have a great stay matte powder that I wear nearly everyday.

5. What's your favorite high end beauty brand?

I rarely treat myself to high end beauty brands because of being a student * sob * but what I do love is Charlotte Tilbury's products -. the eye shadows are beyond beautiful I could and have spent hours swatching them in store.

6. lipgloss or lipstick?

Lipstick all the way!

7. Do you prefer summer or winter makeup I look?

I love winter looks because I feel you can be more experimental and you don 't have to worry about it melting off your face.

8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I absolutely loved living in London the year I was working and, although it may not be exotic, it has so much culture and flare to it - Actually I'm planning on moving there after graduation ....

9. What's your worst habit beauty?

I actually have a blog post in store coming out on very soon so stay tuned for an intense list - but what would definitely be the worst is peeling off nail polish!

10. What's something you're looking forward to?

I'm looking forward to heading back to university in a couple of weeks to reunite with a load of my friends who I've missed so so much this Summer!

Now here are my own 10 questions for my nominees to answer!

1. What’s your favourite topic to blog about?

2. If you could lose one staple product; foundation, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick – what would it be?

3. What’s your opinion on face wipes?

4. Your favourite hair care product?

5. What’s your favourite perfume?

6. What product can you not live without in the winter time?

7. What are your favourite types of instagram photos to take?

8. Staple nail polish brand and colour!

9. Primer or no primer?

10. What’s the hardest thing about blogging?

I nominate the below blogs:

Elisabeth from Lipstick & Confetti
Bella and Adelaide from Bella May
Bethy from Beth Does Beauty
Olivia from Olivia Red Fern
Lily from Pint Sized Beauty

Thank you again Sonja and I can't wait to read the nominees answers!
