Liebster Blog Award

Hello Folks, so the lovely Keisha of The Chrysalis Gals has nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award :) Thank you Keisha x

From what I can gather this award serves as a way of giving blogs with small amounts of followers a bit of a platform and getting them out there. Can't be a bad thing surely. :)

There are a few rules :

  • You must link the person who nominated you.
  • You must answer all 11 questions set by the person who nominated you.
  • You must nominate 11 of your favourite blogs and give them 11 questions to answer.
  • You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
  • And don't forget to let the people you have nominated know by leaving them a message :)

The Questions Keisha has set :
  • Why did you start blogging?
           I started blogging because I was reading a lot of other people's blogs and I thought it looked  
           like a great way to get my opinions out there as I am a very opinionated person. Also I was 
          just really beginning to get interested in beauty products and now I have an excuse for buying 
          so much! :)
  •  What advice would you give to a newbie blogger?
           I would say just be yourself, write about what you are passionate about, don't write what you 
           think people want to read. 

  •  In 3 words how would you describe yourself?

          Determined, Friendly, and a little bit crazy :)
  • Who or what inspires you?
           So cliche but my parents inspire me. I have a younger brother who was born blind and just the
           way they have coped over the years and fought for what's best for him is amazing. I don't
           know how they do it.
  • If you could have any dream career in the world what would it be?
          I really don't know the answer to this question. Just any career which I could really enjoy I 
          guess. I just haven't made up my mind what that is yet.
  • What makeup/beauty item would you never leave home without?
           Definitely some sort of lip product, lip balm probably. Especially now the colder weather is 
           making an appearance in Scotland.
  • If I was to take a peek inside your purse what would I find?
          An awful lot of rubbish that I don't need!! Reciepts, mints, pens, a notebook, deodorant,                 
          perfume, keys, my purse and goodness knows what else.
  • Which Makeup brand is your absolute favourite and why?
          I don't have a favourite but I would say my preferred high street is Rimmel because I have so 
          many products by them and high end probably Mac because the quality is sooooo good.

  • Bold lipstick or neutral?
         For everyday I would have to say neutral.
  • What is your shoe preference? flats, wedge or stiletto?
          I really like a wedge, so much easier to walk in :)
  • What would be your dream vacation?
         Somewhere I have already been twice, Australia. I would like to see a lot more of it though. I
         would love to spend a lot of time out there, I would live there if I could.

Now my Nominations are

And my questions are:
  1. What made you start blogging?
  2. What do you hope to achieve for/from your blog?

  5. Where is your favourite place to be?
  6. Who inspires you?
