The Liebster Blog Award

Monday, 23 July 2012

The other day, the beautiful Beth at Beauty Thrill nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award (go send her some love on her blog!) and this is such a great way for you to kind of get to know me better! 

This is what happens – you get nominated, then you reply with your post, and tag other bloggers who have under 200 followers to do the same. Simples.

1. You must link back to the person who gave the award to you!
2. Post eleven things about yourself
3. Answer the questions the person giving you the award has set for you.
4. Create 11 questions for the people to answer that you have given the award to.
5. Choose people to give the award to and link them in your post.
6. Go to their blog and tell them.
7. You can't give the award back to the blogger who gave it to you!

Let's get started!

11 Questions For Me To Answer
1. What is your favourite beauty brand?
Oh, this is difficult, there are so many brands that I like! There are some beauty brands that have products that are great and others not so much so my make-up bag is a real big mix!
2. What/where is your favourite place in the world?
I love Hong Kong when I go over to visit family, but I wouldn't want to live there permanently! Although I'm a city girl, it's too much of a city there! I also love Scotland, obviously!
3. Do you like reading? If so, what’s your favourite book?
I [heart] reading! I'm the only person in my family that actually reads books! I have several favourites: Pride & Prejudice, The Hunger Games Trilogy, Game of Thrones, One Day...
4. What sort of blogs/posts do you most enjoy?
I like reading lifestyle and beauty blogs as well as baking blogs! I love reviews because I trust the blogger's opinion more than reading about a specific product in a magazine where their opinion could be tainted.

Long hair with natural beachy waves *sigh*
6. What is your dream job?
Either a criminal solicitor or doing litigation work in court. Or any kind of court work!

The natural no make-up look. Just a light layer of foundation, blush, concealer and a quick lick of mascara!
9. What is your least favourite make-up look or trend?
Bright neon eyeshadow! Something about bright colours weird me out!
10. What does your ideal Saturday night consist of?
A huge pile of DVDs to get through, a take-out and junk food galore. Oh and someone to cuddle with of course!

Over-thinker, funny and passionate
