Liebster Award

I am so happy that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! I would like to thank the lovely Bea from Beatrice Sapphire for nominating me for this award, I'm so grateful (you can read her post here) I love reading her blog, she always keeps me up to date with beauty and skin essentials - I definitely recommend that you go and give her a follow!


1./ Answer the 10 questions which your lovely nominator has given you!

2./ Nominate 10 bloggers who have under 200 followers and link them in your post.

3./ Come up with 10 more cool and crazy questions for your nominees to answer!

4./ Inform your lovely nominees so they can do their responses!
Here are my answers:
1./ Why did you start a blog?

I started blogging at the end of June 2013. I've been interested in fashion and beauty for years now but never really gave blogging much thought, mainly because I didn't know where to start! But then after helping friends with style advice, always buying the latest beauty and makeup products, and reading so many wonderful blogs I knew it was about time I started my own! 

2./ Which is your favourite clothes shop?

This is a difficult question! I have so many favourite clothes shops for all different reasons. But at the moment, I would have to say River Island is my favourite - they have some beautiful clothing in this season and the quality is outstanding.

3./ Which is your favourite makeup brand?

My current favourite makeup brand is Illamasqua - I think their makeup collections are wonderful! I find it difficult to find the perfect foundation for my porcelain complexion but when I discovered Illamasqua's skinbase in shade 102, I fell in love! (I will be doing a review soon - so look out!) I also love the idea of being adventurous with makeup and if you're like me where you like to experiment with different colours and looks then the Illamasqua counter is where you want to be!

4./ Who was your first follower?

My first follower was the lovely Jess from Beautifully Laced. Her adventurous outfit posts and DIY beauty posts are fantastic to read, and she always accompanies them with beautiful photos - You should go take a look! 

5./ What is your favourite food?

Tomatoes are my most favourite food - I absolutely love them! My favourite kind are the on the vine cherry tomatoes, they really are delicious! I enjoy them so much that once I switched my Popcorn snack in the cinema for a tub of my favourite tomatoes! I must admit I did get a few funny looks when I was sat enjoying my healthy snack whilst watching the film!

6./ How do you overcome bloggers block?

I haven't experienced any bloggers block just yet as I am fairly new to the blogosphere. However, when I do hit this block I think the best thing for me to do would be to relax, listen to some good music and read other blogs for inspiration, all accompanied by lots of yummy snacks.

7./ Who is your favourite YouTuber?

My favourite YouTuber at the moment is Beauty Crush, I recently subscribed to her channel as I think her tutorials and hauls are so interesting to watch and she just seems a genuinely nice girl.

8./ Would you like to make YouTube videos?

I would love to make YouTube videos in the near future! Once I have more experience with blogging I hope to start making some - watch this space!

9./ Which post on your blog are you most proud of?

I am most proud of my MUA lipstick review! I spent a lot of time editing the photos, writing the review and planning out the whole post. I am really happy with it, you can read it here.
