The Liebster Award


Hi Everyone, I am so happy to have been nominated for The Liebster Award, not once but twice within 24 hours, I am so happy ^_^

So as I have two nominations I have two sets of questions to answer, both girls went to the trouble of making 11 questions so it would not be fair to only answer one set!! I hope you don't mind reading a lot today ha ha!! 

For those of you who don't know what a Liebster Award is your probably not the only one, I only new what one was for the first time 5 minuets ago!! So a Liebster Award is an Online Award given to new Bloggers, by other bloggers, This gets a lot of new blogs discovered and is a win win for everyone. All rules will be at the end of my post ^_^ x

The first comment I saw to say I had been nominated was off Wendy so I will be answering her questions first!!

 My Questions Off Wendy ..... 

1. What is your favorite part about blogging?
I have two favorite parts to blogging, the first is finding something that gets me excited to blog about, and the second is when it goes live and I get to see when people read it and like it and comment and share it makes me so happy ^_^
 
2. What is the most interesting thing you have learnt about blogging in general?
I would say this is probably how to actually run a bog, using Labels, tags, links, pictures, sharing your blog across social media and how it all works. .... I had a blog a really long time about about 10 years maybe and it was more of a diary blog and I had no idea how to do anything other than write and it went nowhere so I am glad I decided to jump in the blogging world again and do it proper this time.

3. What or who inspired you to blog?
I click on that many links when I am online that I can't remember the first blog I came across the day I started blogging, but I watch a lot of beauty gurus on YouTube and it was something I saw that lead me to a blog post and then it was instantly I thought I need to be doing this...... if you want to know who's blogs I am always on and love and inspire me leave a comment and I can do another post about that.

4. How many hours do you put into your blog?
I try to blog on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday and I spent about 2-3 hours on each post.

5. Which post of yours do you find the most interesting?
Reviews and Haul, they are the ones I find more interesting to read and write.

6. Who is your favorite blogger?
I have a few the list is always getting longer but at the minuet I really like Natalie from youralmostalice.blogspot.com and Kirsty from behindtheseclosedeyes.com and Lucie from fatbeautyx.blogspot.co.uk that is just three but I love to read loads 

7. What is your favorite beauty product?
Nail polish I just feel so much better when I have it on ^_^ 

8. What is the most interesting thing about you that your readers may not know?
I love to knit and want to learn how to crochet ...... is that interesting ?? I don't think it is ha ha ha.

9. Where do you see your blog in a few years?
Hopefully with a lot more post's and a lot more readers ^_^
 10. What kind of products do you prefer to review?
I love to review nail polish, foundation and skin care.

11. Do you take all of your blogs pictures?
I do now, but one of my first post was my elf haul and I used pictures off the internet.

My next set of questions are off Verity I hope none of them are the same ha ha.

1. If you were given £500 what beauty items would you buy with it?
I would buy a lot of Boots No.7 Skin care, foundation from every brand I could think of and then lots of stuff that catch my eye ^_^ .... if only would love that.

2. If you could be like your idol who would it be and why?
I would be a mash up of zoe sugg Tanya Burr & Kandee Johnson .... I would like Kandee's skills, zoe's personality and Tanyas looks .... perfect ^_^ 

3. What made you start blogging and what do you blog about?
It was beauty videos on YouTube that I was watching that lead me to beauty bloggers, and when I started reading I was hooked! I blog about beauty products, Hauls, Reviews, Favorites ect. 

4. You are given a choice between being rich and lonely or poor and happy, what do you choose?
I would rather be poor and happy, because if you are happy you have everything you have ever wanted, and you can always work and being rich from there ha ha.

5. Top 3 budget buys.
Maybelline color show nail polish, W7 mascara (I actually really like W7) and anything from ELF ^_^

6. Loads of cheap handbags or one expensive one?
Loads of cheap ones, I love bag's so the more the better and price doesn't matter to me, I love a good budget buy.
 
7. Favourite perfume and why?
Lady Millions is my favorite at the minuet I could just sniff my arm all day ha ha.

8. Your Top 3 go to beauty/fashion websites and why?
Boots for sure so I get points back to spend even more ^_^  ..... Everything5pound.com they have to nice things on there and I love getting shoes from there too, then for both beauty and fashion ebay because I love a good sale ^_^

9. Online shopping or Venturing out to shop?
Both I spend just as much money if I am online or in store and if I am not out shopping then I will be online ha.
