The Liebster Award!

I am so excited to write this post! I have been nominated  by the lovely Ciara =) thank you very much Ciara! She has asked some great questions so I am really looking forward to answering them. 

" For those who don't know, the rules are as follows:

~Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.~They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.~They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.~They must then choose 3 special bloggers to tag & award with the Liebster award.~These lucky bloggers must be told in a comment on their blog  "

11 things about myself:

  1. In July I graduated with a degree in Philosophy.
  2. I am half Scottish, half Yorkshire.
  3. I have 5 cats and 1 dog. 
  4. When at home, I burst into song all the time.
  5. I am going to work and travel in Australia for a year come February. 
  6. I absolutely love chocolate biscuits. Far too much!
  7. When I first went to University, I took a year's course in Italian Language and Culture, and loved it!
  8. I have been to Reading festival, Leeds festival and Glastonbury, and loved every minute of all of them! 
  9. I love animals. 
  10. I am constantly watching YouTube vlogs, both beauty and lifestyle. They're so relaxing to watch!
  11. One day I would love to go back to my Northern roots and move back up to Yorkshire.

My answers to Ciara's questions:

1. What made you want to start a blog? 
A huge influence in what made me want to start writing a blog was reading other people's blogs and watching other's YouTube videos. I am in love with all things beauty, if you ask any of my friends they will tell you I talk about beauty products all the time. I was also keen to keep writing, so it seemed perfect, to write about something I love. 

2. Who is your style crush?
This might seem strange, but I would actually have to say that, at the moment, I am crushing on Kristen Stewart's sense of style. I love the rocker kind of style, and alternative look. 

3. If you could travel to one country, which would it be and why?
Definitely America. I have been before, but it is such a huge country that I only managed to see a small part. I would love to explore every part!

4. Heels or flats? 
Anyone who knows me knows the answer to this...flats!! I am so terrible with heels, I am so jealous of girls who can power through the pain because I really do think they look so good! But I personally would just rather be comfortable, so I can bust some great moves on the dance floor!

5. All time favourite beauty product? 

Ahh this is so difficult! But if I had to pick one, it has to be Estee Lauder's Double Wear. I have been in love with it for 6 years now, and whenever I stray away from it, I always come running back!

6. Favourite season? 
Summer Summer Summer! I love waking up to bright sunshine, and the days are so much longer in the Summer. 

7. Favourite song at the moment? 
Right now, I can't stop listening to "Everybody Talks" By Neon Trees. It makes me want to get up and dance! I love songs that do that.

8. Name someone who inspires you. 
This is going to sound really strange, but ever since seeing her as Gabby in Desperate housewives, I have always really loved Eva Longoria. She played a really sassy woman, and I thought she was hilarious. That character, at least, inspired me to be more confident. 

9. Where is your favourite place to shop?
Although I am a HUGE Topshop fan (who isn't?!), my favourite place to shop is probably New Look. I think this is probably because it's a lot cheaper, so I can buy more (hooray!),  and you can find some real gems in there.

10. What's your favourite make-up brand? 
MAC!!! As you will soon see in my blog, MAC lipsticks are especially my favourite! I  think it's a great brand. It isn't too expensive for being high end, and really delivers in quality. 

11. Favourite TV show and why? 
Desperate Housewives! I wish it was still on, I can't believe it's come to an end. But I will still watch it over and over. I love the characters and the story lines are always changing.
