Liebster Award

I've seen this award going around so much in the time that I have been blogging and now I'm happy to say that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award! I was nominated by my good friend Jess and the award is for bloggers who have 200 followers or less to enable them to grow in the blogging world.

The Rules

  • Once nominated, make a post thanking and linking your nominator's blog. 
  • Include the Liebster Award's sticker in the post as well (you can copy it from above). 
  • Nominate 10 other new bloggers that have 200 or less followers who you think are worthy of this award and include their links in your post. Also, make sure that you let them know they've been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can nominate the person who nominated you. 
  • Answer the 10 questions asked to you by your nominator (these questions should be on their post). And make 10 questions of your own for your nominees to answer. 
  • Finally, copy these rules onto your post.
Jess' Questions

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I felt like I needed a platform to talk about my love for beauty and fashion. I also find it almost therapeutic talking about my life, like I'm getting things off my chest. I also started blogging because I wanted to be in the blogger community and I'm so glad I did because I've had the pleasure of speaking to some wonderful people and it's so nice that we share common interests! Before I started blogging I started my own youtube channel however I wasn't gaining many views/subscribers so I decided to take my thoughts to blogging instead. I would really like to get back into making youtube videos though as I absolutely loved making them!

2. What are 3 facts about you that not many people know?
a) I am obsessed with everything to do with Christmas. Pretty much all year round I look forward to Christmas time. I mean, I watch Christmas films in August.. I'm watching The Santa Clause 2 as I'm writing this post. Not even joking.
b) I have a permanent brace on the back of my teeth. I had train track braces when I was about 13 only for around 8 months and when I got them taken off I had a permanent brace put on the back of my teeth. The orthodontist they will be there forever.. well unless they break off.
c) I have anxiety. I don't talk about it very often, but perhaps I should? I know that so many people have it and it's very common but sometimes it can really feel like you're the only person who feels that way. I won't go into detail in this post - it's a whole other story!

3. What is your favourite beauty product?
Oh wow, that's a toughie! I think it has to be Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. It is literally the best thing to ever grace my skin and will always be my all time favourite foundation. 

4. Do you have any pet peeves?
Oh my gosh, loads. Bad mannered people. Being ignored. Body shaming. People talking when I'm trying to watch a movie. Ungratefulness. Man buns. I could go on and on and on.

5. What were your summer essentials this year?
Probably my Maybelline Fit Me pressed powder to prevent oily skin throughout the day and Mac Soft & Gentle for a lovely summery glow.

6. Favourite Quote? 
I spent so long thinking about this and I don't think I have one! The only thing I could think of is something that my mum always used to (and still does) say to me "never wish your life away". I always remember that because when I'm older I know that I will wish I was younger again, I already do.

7. Which 3 people, dead or alive, would you have over for dinner and why?
Firstly it would have to be Tom Hanks because he is my all time favourite actor and I would just make him quote all of his films. Secondly I would have over Zooey Deschanel because she's just the coolest and I'd make her sing with me and teach me to be her. And lastly I would have to pick Karl Pilkington. I mean, does that really need a reason? He would make me cry laugh.

8. 3 Favourite Films
I have about 100 favourite films but my top 3 would probably be Forrest Gump, Les Misérables and Pretty Woman.

9. Which is your favourite high street fashion shop?
I would like to say ASOS because there's so much to choose from but it's only an online store so otherwise it would be Monki.

10. Where is your favourite place to visit?
Ahh there are so many places in the world that I love! But I think I would never get bored of going back to L.A. Although Sorrento is the most beautiful place I've ever been so either of those.

4. Your top 3 favourite films?
5. What animal would you be and why?
6. Are you a dog or a cat person?
7. What are the best and worst things about blogging?
8. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
