Liebster Award

In my last post, I mentioned that I will be uploading on Mondays and Thursdays. However, I have been nominated by the lovely Ella Williamson from IDK ELLA to do the Liebster Award (thanks girl!) so I wanted to dedicate a special blogpost to it. The idea is to help less well known bloggers gain some more awareness in the community and I think it is a great idea so here goes...


1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate 11 other bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and link them.
4. Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
5. Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.


1) If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I hope so, although I embarrass myself constantly when I meet new people because I am so socially awkward. I would probably try to befriend myself and then be put off by how weird I seem!

2) What is your eye colour?
Brown. As my boyfriend once beautifully put it - 'A really nice, muddy, brown'.

3)  Favourite season?
Winter because I live to be cosy. Hot water bottles and Christmas jumpers are my life source.

4) Do you have any special talents?
I used to think I had none at all until this Christmas. I was playing the Wii and became insanely good at the tennis game, I am yet to be beaten. Completely useless though seeing as I get out of breath just running to the net in real tennis!

5) Do you have any pets?
NO. And it is a major source of contention with my parents, I have never been allowed any pets! Actually saying that, I once had triops which are these fish with three eyes that you grow from a packet. We kept them in a tank on our dining room table and no one could eat looking at them because they were so gross so they had to go!

6) What do you want to be when you grow up?
Before starting my placement at Boots this year, I was sure that I wanted to go into branding or marketing in the beauty industry. I think working for Boots has made me realise that what I love about the beauty industry is being able to do your own thing - and working for someone else kind of makes me fall out of love with it all. Hence why I started this blog, to enjoy beauty news and hype as a hobby again! So in the past few months I have been looking into becoming a primary school teacher as I love children and I hope that I could make a real difference in that environment.

7) Computer or television?
Computer because you can watch TV on it too.

8) Do you have any siblings?
I have a gorgeous younger sister (well she's 18 but she still seems like a baby to me), Hi Meg! 

9) What’s the first thing you notice about people?
How they treat other people, I am a big people watcher and I think watching someone interact with different people can tell you a lot about them. 

10) Will you ever bungee-jump?
Probably not as I am worried about my eyeballs falling out. I really want to skydive in Dubai though (look at the photos!) as my friend is going to do it this year and I am super jealous.

11) Favourite movie?
Love Actually. And I can safely say that there will never be another answer.



1) What is your guilty pleasure?
2) How would your friends describe you?
3) What ten things make you happy?
4) Why did you start your blog?
5) What is your favourite word?
6) Where do you want to travel to most?
7) Where do you getting your blogging inspiration from?
8) What is your favourite quote?
9) Who is your celebrity crush?
10) What is your favourite lip product?
11) What is your goal for 2015?
