Celebrations! I've Been Nominated for the Liebster Award!

Hi Glossies! Today I'm doing something I wouldn't usually do, I'm not a fan of chain letter type postings but I've been nominated by three lovely different ladies so I thought it only fair to reply. Also it's nice to learn things about other bloggers, especially the ones who like me, don't have hundreds of thousands of followers. So the award is the Liebster Award.
If you're new to this award, it's basically a way for new bloggers to get to know each other. It is not actually an award, there are no judges and no special rules. If you get nominated you can choose to accept it and if you wish, pass it on. I believe when it started out, if you accepted the award you had to nominate 3-5 of your favourite bloggers who had under 3,000 followers. But as blogging has gone crazy the last few years that has gradually changed to nominating 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers. And the 'rules' are as follows:
  • You must link back to the person who nominated you
  • You have to answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you
  • You must nominate 11 fellow bloggers with under 200 followers
  • You have to ask 11 questions to your nominees
  • You must make the 11 nominees aware that you have nominated them
  • You can include 11 facts about yourself if you wish
I was nominated by Jassy over at, Sammie over at and Kirsty over at So thanks girls. I don't want to be writing pages and pages of answers to questions because it will just bore you, so I'm going to answer a few questions from each of the girls (Hope that's not cheating, but it's only fair).
Jassy asked:
Morning or night person? I'm definitely a night person (even though I'm usually asleep by 10:30), I'm such a grumpy bear in a morning.
What one thing are you going to change about yourself this year? I'm going to be happy and merry this Christmas instead of being my usual Scrooge-like self.
Favourite cuisine and why? I've recently started loving spicy food, Mexican especially.
Sammie asked:
If you could travel to any country, where would you go? I'd go to Australia, I've always dreamt of visiting there.
If you had one wish, what would you wish for?  I would wish for my Uncle Stephen to come back to us, unfortunately he passed away of Motor Neurone Disease almost 6 years ago, aged only 36. I'd do anything to bring him back.
What's your favourite song of the moment? That would have to be Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine) by Klangkaarussell, it has the strangest name but it's so catchy.
What's the most expensive thing you ever bought? That would be my lovely little Phoebe, my Fiat 500. She's white and she's super cute. I love her!
and Kirsty asked:
What/who inspired you to start a blog? It all started for me when I was searching a beauty product online and Tanya Burr's blog came up as one of the results. I consequently started watching her videos on YouTube and it opened up a whole new realm of beauty related loveliness for me. I've been addicted to reading blogs and watching YouTubers like Tanya and Pixiwoo ever since. Once I stumbled across Catrine at I started to think about starting my own beauty/nail blog.
What are your beauty must haves? My beauty must haves are more skincare based, I can't live without my Bioderma, Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and my Skinetica.
What item of makeup could you not live without? For me it would have to be mascara, on a lazy no makeup day, I think a little bit of mascara totally opens up the eyes and changes the face. And it takes a minute to apply.

What are your favourite pastimes/hobbies? I'm a bit of a health freak so I love my time at the gym, that's where I'm at most nights. After that I love making my nails look pretty.

My nominees for the Liebster Award are:
My questions for you lovely ladies are:
1. What are your 3 holy grail beauty products?
2. Do you prefer to wear heavy eye make up or a coloured lip? Or both?
3. What kind of blogposts do you like to read most? Reviews or tutorials?
4. What is your favourite brand of nail polish?
5. What is your favourite cleanser?
6. What is your favourite beauty brand?
7. What is your favourite nail colour to wear?
8. Who/what inspired you to start a beauty blog?
9. What are your three favourite blogs?
10. Describe your idea of the perfect day.
11. If you could get on a flight tomorrow, where would you fly to?
If you accept the award, leave me a comment below with the links to your answers. I look forward to reading them. Thanks again to Jassie, Sammie and Kirsty for nominating me and thank you to everybody for reading xxx
