The Liebster Award!

Hi everyone, happy Sunday!

I've finally got the time to sit down and write this post after being nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Becki over at I was surprised and very grateful to receive this nomination from Becki as I've not been blogging for long at all so a big thanks to her and go check out her fabulous blog!

So, here goes...

The Leibster award is designed to help up and coming bloggers to discover further bloggers that also have less than 200 followers. I think it's a fantastic idea and has helped me discover some new and interesting blogs to read and follow.

Here are the rules for the Liebster Award:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.  
2. You must answer the 11 questions given by the nominee before you. 
3. You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions. 
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

Here are my questions from Becki:

1. What is your favourite make up brand?

I really love MAC and have been buying their studio fix foundation for about 6 years now. I love the MAC pigments too! I'm going to have a big splurge on some MAC make up next weekend so I'm looking forward to posting what I've bought so you can all see!

2. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I love reading reviews on beauty products before I buy them because so many times I've bought a product that claims to works miracles and then I'm just left disappointed and with an empty purse! It's great to get other peoples opinions and see their pictures before you make a purchase. However, I have to say the best thing that has come out of blogging so far is talking to some really really lovely 
people. Everyone has been so friendly and supportive and I can honestly say I feel like I've met some genuine friends.

3. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Oooh, this one's difficult! I think I would be invisible so I could sneak into places I wouldn't normally be allowed!

4. Who is your biggest blogger inspiration?

There are some really fantastic bloggers who have turned blogging into a successful career and are hugely inspiring people, but I would have to say the lovely Lor over at has been a huge inspiration to me and one of the reasons why I decided to start this blog. She is a lovely and genuine person who has gone through some really tough times and still manages to smile! Go check out her blog!

5. Which blog do you turn to for swatches of products?

I would say and

6. If you had to go to a desert island, what 3 things would you take with you?

My husband, my dog and my eyebrow pencil/powder! I have horrible sparse eyebrows and won't leave the house without filling them in!

7. Where is your paradise?

My paradise is a little beach in Spain that we visit every year on holiday. It's so quiet and I love just lying there listening to the sea!

8. Is there a book that you would like to become a film?

My favourite book has already been turned into a film, which I absolutely love! I love books by Sophie Kinsella, especially her Shopaholic series, and when I found out the first book in the series (Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic) was being turned into a film (Confessions of a Shopaholic) I couldn't wait to see it! I think Isla Fisher was perfect as Rebecca Bloomwood! I'd love them to turn some of the other books in the series into more films.

9. What's your favourite kind of post to read on blogs?

I started off reading mostly beauty and fashion posts but I'm also discovering some interior design blogs which are great for home decorating ideas!

10. Who is your style icon?

I don't really have one! There are loads of celebs that I think always look amazing but if I try to wear what they do I tend to look ridiculous! I'm quite petite (only 5ft 2") so I have to be careful what I wear as things can make me look even shorter and frumpy! I do think Audrey Hepburn was the ultimate glamorous style icon though, she was pure class and elegance.

11. What's your dream career?

I've always been quite creative and love things like sewing, painting and applying make up, so anything where I could be creative with my hands would be my dream career.

So, that's it! I've regally enjoyed answering these questions and I hope you've enjoyed reading my answers!

My nominations for the Liebster Award are:


And here are my 11 questions for them to answer:

1. What do you think is the best budget beauty brand?
2. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
3. Which beauty product could you not live without?

5. Who is your favourite blogger and why?
6. Describe yourself in 5 words.
7. What's your favourite high street shop?
8. If you had one wish what would it be?
9. What are your favourite types of blogs/posts to read?
10. If you could be a celebrity for a day who would you be and why?
