The Liebster Award

I was nominated for the liebster award by two lovely ladies; Pauline from "thisgirlloveschic" & Sandy from absolutebeaut. Ta Girlies!
I enjoy reading both blogs and was really chuffed that they nominated me.
This award is fantastic for new bloggers to network and develop relationships with like minded people. I think its a brilliant way of discovering new blogs too.

The rules:
1. Choose 100 people with less than 200 followers and link them in your post.
Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
Go to their page and tell them that you've nominated them
No tag backs.
Answer the questions that the moninator set for you plus create 11 questions for your nominees.

What made you start your blog?
I've always been into fashion and make up. I remember seeing Cher Lloyd performance on the XFactor and loved a pair of leggings that she wore in one of the live shows.
As i searched on google, I found a load of OOTD's inspired by Cher lloyd written by bloggers and then became hooked.
What are your top three hair care products of all time?
Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo & Conditioner - This stuff smells like bubblegum and is amazing!
Morroccan Oil - a pricy pic, but a bottle will last you forever; i've had mine about a 12 months and I'm not even half way through yet.
James Brown Volumising Moose - The best hair moose I've ever tried. It's light weight and doesn't make my hair sticky or crunchy after use. It just gives your hair the most amazing volume. I love it!
What is your dream job?
My absolute dream hob would be to blog full tine. I've been on maternity leave this past year and I've really dedicated a large portion of my time in between looking after Amelie to my blog an watching people on YouTube - I'd love to make this my income.
A girl can wish...
If you could only use one make up brand, what would it be?
Oo this is a toughy! I think i would have to go with MAC just on the basis that there is such a vast choice in each product; whether thats foundation, eye shadows, lipstick.. there is something to suit every occasion.
What do you aim to acheive with blogging?
My number one aim is to achieve honesty. I'm always 100% truthful with every aspect of my blog. If a product is 99% perfect I'll be sure to mention the 1% thats wrong.
I'd also like to inspire someone, If someone makes a purchase through my recommendation or reviews that would make my day.
What are your beauty secrets?
Drink plenty of water & always take your make up off.
Store your make up wipes upside down to maintain the moisture for those naughty nights when you can't be bothered to wash your face!
Who is your fashion inspiration?
Hands down Olivia Palermo. She's absolutely gorgeous & manages to be sexy without showing an inch of skin. Seriously how is it possible for one woman to be so fashionable all the time!
If you could only wear one lipstick all your life what would it be?
I actually don't really wear a lot of lipstick. So i'm going to change this to Collection 2000's Rock Steady - it's a gorgeous wearable nude. It's perfect wearing on it's own or applying over a bright pink to tone down. 
Top online make up stores?
I buy a lot of things through the Debenhams website. They regularly have great discounted offers and the postage is always really quick.
I also go on discounted make up websites. I've ordered from Cheap Smells & Fragrances Direct several times and are very reputable companies. I'd urge you all to check these out for little bargains!
Describe yourself in one word?
I've really thought about this question and the one word that I keep coming back to is Positive. I try and face everyday with a positive attitude, I think it makes you appreciate the little things in life and makes dealing with the bigger things that little bit easier.


What was your first ever make up?
I think my first make up was a foundation from NO7 when I was about 13. I remember it being in a black squeezy tube and it being quite a thick consistancy. Like a cream/liquid hybrid. I don't even think they still sell it.
Looking back its everything I don't want in a foundation but at the time I was in love with it and I think I went on to repurchase it 3 or 4 times!
When did you first start blogging and why?
I first started about 2 years ago, on and off. I've only really taken it seriously since September 2012.
I started blogging after reading other beauty blogs and being inspired by their fashion outfits and reviews.
Does your mum think you're as crazy as my mum does for having so much make up?
Absolutely. Although she'll often come round to my house before she goes out to somewhere fancy to borrow something or other.
What would be your dream career?
My dream career would be to blog for a living.
If you had to choose, what would be your makeup product ever?
 Mascara - I've got massive eyes and without mascara I look half dead!
Snog, marry avoid on Phil Mitchell, Jack Branning and Alfie Moon?
Snog - Jack Branning. Marry - Alfie Moon & Avoid Phil Mitchell!
Favourite shop ever?
Zara - It's so stylish and the quality is always really good.
Jeans or dresses?
Dresses - There's too much variety.
What would you rather pick for the rest of your life, skincare or makeup?
I'd rather have make up - probably a contraversial answer but I've never really had a massive problem with my skin (touchwood!). I've only ever really had the one spot and I would always be able to cover that! I could always wash my face with water if need be, as long as I keep to non waterproof mascaras!
What would be your ultimate make up look?
Something along the lines of Kim Kardashian. Sultry Smokey eyes, highlighted face and a nude lip!
I have a big list of things I want to do in life. What would be the top thing on your list?
To get married :)

My Questions:
1. When it comes to accessories - Gold or Silver?
2. What's your favourite thing about blogging?
3. My biggest weekness are highlighters. I'm on the hunt for Kim K's glow! What's your make up weekness?
4.. If you had the choice of only wearing eyeshadows or only wearing lipsticks what would you choose?
5. Which blogs inspire you the most and why?
6. You are given £1000 but can only spend on makeup or clothes. Which do you choose?
