Liebster Award

Rachel from A Moment In Time has nominated me for a Liebster Award. Thank you very much Rachel and for those who don't know what a Liebster Award is...it's where a blogger answers 11 questions set by the person who nominated them and then nominates another 11 bloggers (with 200 followers or less) and asks them 11 questions. So let's get on with it...

Rachel's questions for me were:

1. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging when I stumbled over the beauty blogging world, especially nail bloggers, and decided I wanted to give it a try. Since then it has spiralled my main hobby (and a great excuse to buy make-up). 

2. What's your favourite motto?

My grandmother always says "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well". I think this is a pretty good motto. Not sure if it is my favourite motto but it always pops into my mind when mottos come up. 

3. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be and why?

To be less of a stress-a-holic! Especially in uni I tend to stress over everything, even small things :( 

4. What was the last dream you had?

To be honest I cannot remember the last time I had a dream, let alone what it was. It might have been something about going on a holiday?

5. If you had to be trapped in a lift with anyone who would it be?

This is such an awesome question! I weighed up the options and decided I had two options. Go for somebody who was practical and could help me get out of the stuck life, or somebody who would help me feel less anxious. Because, lets face it, I would be feeling pretty freaked out...At the end of the day I think I would like to be trapped in a lift with my best friend as she would try and keep me calm :)

6. What's your favourite book, movie and song?

I am a huge reader so picking one favourite book is nearly impossible for me! I love the Harry Potter books, The Millennium trilogy, anything written by Michael Connelly and James Patterson and the Virals series from Kathy Reichs. I could easily keep listing books I love but I guess I better stop since I haven't even told you what my favourite movie or song is. My favourite movie is either Titanic or The Pink Panther with Peter Sellers. Any song from Nickelback is a favourite, I seriously love every one of their songs and am a huge fan of theirs <3

7. How do you relax?

Watching tv, reading, youtube beauty videos and blogging.

8. What's your favourite season?

Autumn, you still get really warm days and some cooler days but you don't have to deal with the extremes. I also love walking along and kicking autumn leaves!

9. Lipstick or mascara?

Lipstick. I love my mascara, don't get me wrong...but I feel more incomplete without any colour on my lips. I'm also awesome at rubbing my eyes and smearing my mascara all over my face...not a good look!

10. What advice do you have for bloggers just starting out?

Have fun with your blog and do what you want to do with your blog. I also think its important not to get caught up in getting more and more followers. Focus on having fun and not caring what others think :)

11.What's at the top of your bucket list?

Write a bucket list! I haven't really thought about "bucket list" kind of things I want to achieve but think it's a great idea. 

My questions for the bloggers I nominate

1. What is your favourite type of blog post to read?
2. What is your favourite make-up look?
3. For beauty products what is your favourite scent? 
4. Do you regret anything about starting a blog / the name of your blog?
5. Are there any products out there that everybody else seems to love that you don't care for?
6. If you could have super powers for one day, what powers would you have and what would you do?
7. What are your favourite tv shows?
8. What are your favourite bands/singers?
9. What is your favourite guilty pleasure?
10.What is your favourite app?
11.  Where do you see yourself in five years time and will you still be blogging?
