Liebster Award

Hey Beauties!
On Sunday the beautiful Rebecca from Flores y Moda for the 'Liebster Award'. If you don't know what the Liebster award is, it is just a way of letting others discover & connect with bloggers. It works by you being nominated to then nominating other bloggers, you answer the questions you were asked & then you ask some questions for your nominees. I think this is a great chance for bloggers to help each other out & to get to know each other more. I am really flattered to be nominated for this so thank you Rebecca for nominating me. 

There are 5 little rules to follow once you are nominated these are:
1. Answer the 11 questions you were asked
2. Nominate 11 more blogs 
3. Ask 11 new questions for your nominees to answer
4. Then let those who you nominated know that you tagged them.
5. No tagging the person who nominated you back.
Easy Peasy!

Here are the questions I was asked by Rebecca & my responses:
1. What is your favourite drugstore/high street beauty brand?
I love all the high street beauty brands & buy particular products from each brand. But my favourite would have to be RIMMEL because they are pretty much good for everything & you could buy your whole makeup look from them if you wanted too. I love their wake me up foundation & their kate moss lipsticks.
2. What is your all time favourite lip product?
Oh god I have so many! For lipstick if would have to be my estee lauder crystal baby or MAC Ruby Woo. Both great quality & very versatile. For lip balm it would have to be Aloe Forever lip balm, its not a popular brand but is made from natural ingredients & is one of the best working lip balms for me.
3. Topshop or River Island?
If I had to choose it would have to be River Island, although I do really like Topshop. But I tend to go straight to River Island before Topshop when I’m out shopping. For me it’s more river island for the outfit & Topshop for the accessories.
4. Which classic makeup look is your favourite?
Definitely a red lip! I just love a red lip, be it matte or glossy finish. I just think it can add so much to a look. It can dress up a casual outfit or be the perfect finishing touch to a glamorous look. It is definitely my go to look for a special occasion.
5. Would you rather live without hairdryer and straighteners or makeup?
That’s easy! Live without hairdryer and straighteners. I have naturally curly hair so I get away with not using these sometimes. I find that if you have a great flawless look with a messy top knot bun you are good to go and is a great look for both day & night. My hair would love me too without all that heat!
6. Who is your biggest inspiration?
My biggest inspiration would have to be my family especially my parents, they are very hard working & have taught me a lot like you have to work to get what you want. They are all so supportive in what I do & only want me to be happy. (Cheesy I know!) In terms of blogging it would have to be louise from sprinkle of glitter, she has shown me that it doesn’t matter what you look like or what size you are you can do what you want & forget what anyone else has to say. Because of her & pixiwoo I started this blog.
7. What is your life ambition?
I would love to be as successful as Pixiwoo, zoella etc with my blog. But my life ambition is to be healthy & successful in no matter what I do be it blogging or makeup or quantity surveying but hopefully ALL of those.
8. Which beauty product would you describe as your summer essential? 
BB creams & tinted moisturisers. Since the weather has got sunnier I have been using these more with a bit of concealer for the areas that need more coverage. I am loving Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser for this, only recently started using it and already I’m obssessed.
9. Have you ever had a crazy hairstyle? 
Yes! When I was like 13 years old I convinced my parents to allow me to get my hair dyed. Being so young they said I could have a little bit down which turned out to be just the front sides of my hair. So I had these two chunks of hair dyed at the front which I liked to keep down when my hair was tied up. It was hideous! I have it died bright red & then another time blonde! I didn’t keep those bits down & tied my hair completely up I used to look like a skunk. Never again! What I would give to be young & carefree again LOL.
10. Which blogger would you love to meet in real life?
As I have been lucky enough to already have met Fleur from FleurdeForce & Louise from Sprinkleofglitter at IMATS, I would love to meet Tanya Burr & Zoe from Zoella. They are my favourite bloggers of all time & it would be great to get the chance to meet all of them.
11. Finally, what's your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is being able to talk non-stop about beauty products & things that I love without the fear of someone being fed up or bored of hearing about them. Also the satisfaction/sense of achievement I get when I see an extra follower or higher pageviews from the day before, just lets me know that it’s not a waste of time.
