The Liebster Award has been circulating for a long time and is such a lovely idea to promote new blogs which deserve recognition This is why I was so chuffed to receive this lovely award from Jodie Marie over at What Would Audrey Wear I seriously recommend you check out her blog!
The rules of the award are pretty simple and I’m sure you all know them by now:
11 facts about yourself
Answering 11 questions
Asking 11 question
Nominating 11 people
I see a theme with 11 there somehow…However I’m going to be a spoil sport and save the facts about me for another time as I’ve been planning to do a separate blog post on getting to know me fully at another time. So I’ll just answer and ask 11 questions. Am I allowed to do that? Am I cheating? Please Mr Liebster don’t tell me off.
Anyway so here goes with Jodie’s questions:
1.Why you began blogging?
Slightly stereotypical answer here in that I had been looking at beauty blogs for a long time and watched a lot of Youtube videos. I felt I had something more to add with my passion for beauty. I’ve really loved how welcoming everyone has been and this has encourage me more and it has become part of my everyday lifestyle which I love.
2. Favourite thing you’ve ever worn
I had a good long think about this question and came to the conclusion it was nothing too serious. My Incredibles fancy dress outfit! I wore this during freshers week at uni with my friend Dan and we had such fun wearing these costumes, so many people came up to us wanting photographs and it was hilarious. I actually felt very comfortable dressed as a superhero too, I think that is saying something…
3. Three goals you want to achieve this year
My first goal would be to do well for my course in my first year, this includes my exam and my end of year project. I’d love to come out with a first for the practical project but I think that is aiming a little too high. But as long as I pass..
My second would be to buy lots of NARS! I love NARS it is fast becoming my favourite beauty brand (expensive taste I know). I have three products from them and I love them all and want to buy more more more.
My third would be to start Youtube. I love watching Youtube videos and seem as though I’m studying film I reckon I could put a half decent video up!
4. Favourite Disney Character
Shocking to believe I never really liked Disney as a kid, I was too keen on watching The Blues Brothers and Bugsy Malone.
5. Best thing that’s ever happened to you
This is probably going to be the cheesiest thing I have ever written and ever WILL write on my blog but it is the truth. Fourteen months ago I started going out with one of my best friends and we are still together today. It has been difficult and we are having a rough time at the moment but I only hope he reads this and realises how much he means to me! It has been a wonderful year together. I have included a lovely (questionable) photo of us where I look ever so vacant…
6. Item that’s top of your wishlist right now
Probably an Urban Decay palette, either Naked 1 or 2, not sure which, any suggestions?
7. Favourite place in the world
Probably my bedroom at home. I never appreciated it when I had it, it was tiny and I never really spent much time in there. But suddenly I’m away and in a massive hotel-like room at uni and I really miss how cosy my old room was!
8. Comfort food
I’m actually one of these people who doesn’t really comfort eat, if I’m ill or upset I tend to just starve. But if I’m having a lazy day I definitely reach for chocolate, I have some sort of addiction to that stuff, mind you what girl doesn’t.
9. Where/how did you meet your best friend
I don’t really like to say I have a best friend, I don’t have a best cat so why should I pick a best friend. Controversial…
10. What inspires your style?
I get a lot of fashion and beauty inspiration from celebrities, not gonna lie. I tend to fixate around one celebrity for a few months and then move swiftly on to the next. My fashion icon was Kim Sears, Andy Murray’s girlfriend (weird and creepy I know) but I’ve kind of moved onto Zooey Deschanel. I don’t copy as such, just get inspired!!
11. Beauty product you can’t live without
Two words: nail varnish. I hate bare nails, I don’t care if I have the world’s ugliest nail varnish on, it is better than bare nails. I love Essie ones but I could never pick a colour as I find they really reflect my mood/the weather!
Now for my questions to people:
1) What has been your biggest fashion faux-pas?
2) Have you got a favourite pair of shoes?
3) Do you have any pets?
4) Most meaningful piece of jewellery?
5) Favourite highstreet fashion brand?
6) Favourite high end makeup brand?
7) Best dressed celebrity?
8) What are your favourite posts to read on blogs?
9) How long have you been blogging for?
10) What is your dream job?
11) Person you care about the most?
And the nominees are, drum roll please.
