Liebster Award

So the lovely Anna from TAD (www.theannadiaries.blogspot.co.uk) has nominated me for the Liebster Award. I love reading about tag posts and I’m glad I have the chance to write one myself as you find so much out about each other!


There's a few things you have to do to be nominated, here's the list:

1.) Each nominee must first list 10 random facts about their self.
2.) Then answer the 10 questions provided by the person who nominated them.
3.) Lastly, choose 10 bloggers and ask them 10 questions.

So here goes! Here's 10 facts about me:

1. I live in Buckinghamshire, about a 50 minute drive from London. 
2. I work in recruitment for a worldwide known company. 
3. I love being creative and trying new things. 
4. I watch eastender’s religiously every night it’s on without fail. (sad I know!) 
5. My favourite colour is pink.. I’m not sure if you can tell?! 
6. I get more excited about Christmas than my little brother! I love getting in the festive spirit!
7. I’m addicted to tea and dipping chocolate bars in it, so the chocolate melts, don’t slate it until you try it! ;)
8. My bed is my favourite place in the whole world. Nothing beats candles, winter nights and a lovely thick duvet! 
9. I have a HUGE family, get together are a little crazy, but amazing at the same time. 
10. I have come to the conclusion that I have a slight shoe addiction. I have over 132 pairs! 

Anna’s questions for me:

If you're stuck on an island, what three make-up items would you take with you?

Ooo this is a hard one.. only 3 products Anna?! 1. MAC Strobe cream 2. Dry Shampoo 3. My eyebrow kit!


Why did you decide to start blogging?

I decided to start blogging because it because my bedtime read turned into reading blogs and before I purchased anything I looked through the blogging community for positive reviews. I really took on what bloggers had to say about a product before I purchased it, and I wanted to give that back.


Who was the blogger that most inspired you to start your own?

The blogger that most inspired me was Hollie Wakeham – a youtube beauty guru. Not only is she beautiful she does amazing makeup tutorials and gives her honest opinion with products.  


Who's blogs do you check out most often?

The main blogs I check daily are Zoellas, Sprinkleofglitter, Hollie Wakeham and Haileys Beauty World. But, I always use the #bbloggers hash tag to check out other peoples blogs and follow them.


What are you favourite types of blogposts/videos to watch?

Hauls, Beauty Reviews, How to demo’s, makeup tutorials, fashion outfits, bargain buys!


Do you prefer watching youtube videos or reading blogposts?

I prefer reading blog posts, purely because this is something I can easily do on my lunch break at work. In the evenings, I do like to watch youtube videos as I feel it’s easier to see someone’s honest opinion of a product. Sometimes its hard to express it correctly in a blog post.


What's in your handbag at the moment?

My purse, various vouchers because of the lead up to Christmas, a miniature dry shampoo and brush, tissues, hand sanitizer, a small makeup bag, my keys, my diary, painkillers and some vitamin C tablets! (yes my bag is like a chemist at the moment... got to love the winter cold’s!)


What's your favourite hair product?

Dry shampoo has to be my saviour. This is because my hair is so flat and thin it’s so hard to get any volume out of it. So I like to use dry shampoo to really mattify my hair which makes it easier to plump up and backcomb to add volume, without getting the stickiness from hairspray.


What's your favourite lip product for Winter?

At the moment I am wearing my EOS lipblam in honeydew. I LOVE this, it’s so moisturising without being oily or too thick. Perfect for winter. I am also liking the highly rated Maybelline babylips balms. These are great for adding a pop of colour but also protecting your lips.


How many times a week do you try to blog?

I try to blog at least once a week. I am upping that at the moment, it’s just been so hard for me to fit it in because I work full time and study part time and also, of course, have a social life and family to see! However, recently blogging has become a big part of my life. I want to fit more time in to actually posting as I really enjoy doing it and socialising with other bloggers.


The bloggers I nominate are:












And here's my questions for you guys:

Who’s blog/youtube do you check out the most?

Who inspired you to start blogging?

What is your favourite time of year and why?

The beauty product you cannot live without?

The worst Fashion mistake you have ever made?

How do you normally style your hair on a day to day basis?
