My Liebster Award

So it turns out I have been nominated for the Liebster award by the lovely Nadia! I've seen a few of these posts before, and I think it's quite a nice way to get to know the people behind the blogs, so I am going to give it a go!

In case you are wondering 'what the hell is a Liebster Award', it's basically 21st century chain mail done blogger style. Bloggers nominate other bloggers to answer a series of questions that they have came up with, you then nominate other bloggers to do it and so on.

So let's get started! Here are my answers to Nadia's questions

What made you start your blog?
I really liked reading beauty blogs for a long time, I also really like writing, so blogging seemed like the perfect excuse to ramble on about my beauty loves.

Who is your biggest inspiration in regards to the blogging/vlogging world?
I have so many! But if I had to narrow it down to one it's for sure got to be Hannah Gale, she's hilarious!

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
100% Pasta. It's a carb and it's delicious.

What one makeup item can you not live without?
1?! Probably mascara because I think that's the product that really completes your face. Lip balm was up there though, because I just HATE having dry lips.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I'd love to be able to say somewhere really glamorous like California or New York, but as much as I'd love to spend time out there, the thought of permanently being away from my family makes me sad. I'm such a family oriented person that I don't think I could ever live more than 20 minutes away from my loved ones.

What are your top 3 movies of ALL time?
I hate getting asked this because I usually get a look of 'you poor uneducated thing' when I list them off, but here we go...

  1. Happy Gilmore, my go to movie if I want to have a giggle, the Nan in it is adorable and it has a happy ending, that's the recipe for a Oscar winning movie in my eyes.
  2. The Holiday, because I LOVE Christmas
  3. Home Alone 2, as per above, I love Christmas, I also love New York = great combo for a movie.

What makes you smile more than anything?
These questions are making me realise that I'm pretty clichรฉ, but I would have to say my family. They are the most loving, fun and caring people and they make me so happy. Happiness = Smiles.
N.B. Pizza also makes me smile quite a lot too.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a 'Holiday Entertainer', you know those people that put on shows abroad to a load of drunken Brits after the Bingo? Yup, one of them. I think the realisation that i couldn't live without my mums cottage pie for more than 7 days stopped me, although I still to this day think this would be such a fun job.

What was your first job? Did you love it or hate it?
Well I had a paper round for about 2 months, and I hated it because the bag was so heavy, and let's face it, at age 13 the last thing you want to be doing after school is lugging a huge bright yellow bag around your neighborhood.  Hence why I only stuck at it for 2 months before palming it off onto my little brother.

My first 'proper' job was working in New Look as a Sales Assistant, and I loved it. I worked there from the age of 16-18 and had such good fun with all the girls who worked there. (We also got 50% discount which was a great perk.)

What is your favourite hobby? (besides blogging)
I actually do competitive cheerleading in my spare time, but it's so much more than a hobby. You can read all about it here if you're interested.

So now I need to nominate some bloggers! Here we go...

  1. Pasta is hands down my favorite food that I could eat over and over. I get this one from a local store called pumpkin ravioli with chipotle sauce and it's AMAZING.

    1. That sounds absolutely incredible ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  2. I can agree to majority of your questions. Mascara is also my major makeup piece and I don't go out without it.
