Liebster Award

So I was delighted to be nominated by Crystal from Everything Beauty for this award. Sorry it’s taken me ages to write this! You can see her post here. The Liebster Award is like a tag award and helps bloggers be recognised. It’s awarded to newer bloggers who have less than 200 followers. There are some rules (aren’t there always?) so here we go with the post :)
  1. Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
  2. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
  3. Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award onto and link them in your post.
  4. Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
  5. Tell the nominees about the award.

Questions for me from Crystal:

  1. What is your all-time favourite makeup brand, and why?
This is hard! I like different brands for different reasons but I think I’m going to say Revlon because I love their lip colours and blush.

  1. What is your favourite animal?
Cats, penguins and polar bears equally. I’ve had a polar bear teddy since I was 9.

  1. Did you grow up in a small town or big city? What was it like?
I grew up in a small town in the south of England. It was really nice, but I’m enjoying living in a bigger city for university. I enjoy going home to see my parents and visit though.

  1. What is your favourite cereal?
I’m not actually a fan of cereal because I don’t like milk. I like yoghurt and granola though.

  1. What inspired you to start your blog? Why?
The bloggers on my Blogroll because I really admire what they do and wanted to join their club. I also started it as a form of essay procrastination. 

  1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
San Francisco because I want to go on a tram. And everyone I know who’s been says it’s a lovely place to visit. 

  1. What are three things that you are very grateful for?
My family, my friends and the ability to walk, talk and see.

  1. What is the last beauty product you purchased?
Collection’s Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair 1. They almost never have my shade so I grabbed it when I saw it.

  1. What is your favourite TV show?
Horrible Histories which is a TV show for children but I love it. They do History related songs, this is my favourite.

  1. If you could have any kind of magic power, what would it be?
Humm, the power to slow down time so I’d have more time to get ready and not be late!

  1. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Night owl, hands down. I hate mornings. 

Facts about me:

  1. I have two nephews and a niece
  2. I spent four months studying in Canada
  3. If it was healthy to only eat one thing I’d eat Pasta and Roasted Pepper Pesto for the rest of my life
  4. Despite this I nearly always have chicken Caesar salad when I go out to eat
  5. I’m the biggest worrier you’ll ever meet
  6. It’s my birthday this month!
  7. I ombréd my hair myself
  8. There are 21 things around my sink. I don’t know how they all fit.
