The Liebster Award

Yesterday, I was sat looking through my e-mails and discovered that somebody had left a new comment on one of my blog posts. The lovely Hannah Burrows had nominated me for 'The Liebster Award'. At first I had no idea what this was about but reading Hannah's blog post about it, I quickly understood. It was soo lovely of her to even consider me for this as I've only been running my blog for a couple 

The award is basically about discovering new bloggers and learning more about them. As part of the tag you have to answer ten questions provided by the person that nominated you and answer them in the blog post. You then have to create ten questions of your own and tag ten new bloggers to answer them.

The Rules:
  • The tagged/nominated blogs must have under 200 followers
  • You must tag the blog that nominated you
  • Make sure that you let the people know you tagged them so that they can respond

The questions left for me;
1) What's your favourite quote?
“Good things fall apart so better things can fall into place”
2) What are some of your favourite songs at the moment?
Wrecking Ball – Miley Cyrus
Roar – Katy Perry
Talk Dirty To Me – Jason Derulo
Burn – Ellie Goulding
Dance For You – Beyonce
3) What is your top beauty tip?
Your eyebrows are meant to be sisters not twins. I definitely learnt that after suffering the aftermath of over-plucking!!
4) In 5 years time, where do you want to see yourself?
Anyone else sing Noah and the Whale in their head when they read this haha?
Well, I’ll be 24 years old in 5 years time – wow, scary! Hopefully I’ll be working as a successful PR/Marketing officer and fingers crossed I’ll still be working with the same company that I do now. That would be perfect!
6) If you are running out the door and don't have time to do your usual make-up and only have time to apply 3 things, what would you apply?
I didn’t even have to think about this one – Borjouis Bronzing Primer (review coming soon!), Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and Benefit They’re Real Mascara.  
7) What's your favourite skincare product?
I’m loving using my Bare Minerals Purifying Facial Cleanser at the moment. I use it twice a week to give my skin a nice treat J
8) What is your guilty pleasure?
One Direction.
9) What's one weird and random fact about yourself?
I used to make ‘Ice Cream Soup’ when I was little by mashing and mixing up a bowl of ice cream until it was literally a liquid. I also used to dip prawn crackers in it too! I don’t make it as much anymore but have to fight the urge whenever I have ice cream. Please don’t judge me!
10) Finally, why did you start blogging, and what is your favourite part of blogging?
I feel like the blogging world is an escape from the real world with different bloggers to discover everyday. It’s your own little place on the internet for you to share your thoughts, passions and snippets of your life. I can utilise my love for writing and learn about new products or styles that I probably wouldn’t have even known about! My favourite part of blogging is definitely the feeling of satisfaction you get when somebody leaves a really positive comment on your post - I love talking to new people!   

People I tag:

My questions for you;

1) High street or high end make-up?

2) Do you have any pets?

3) Name the beauty product that you have re-purchased the most.

4) What is your dream job?

5) Shower or bath?

6) What is a typical day in your life?

7) What has been the best year of your life so far and why?

8) Have you ever thought about dramatically changing your hair colour/style?

9) How often do you use fake tan?

10) Do you have a role-model? If so, who and why?
