Leibster Award!

Hi! I was nominated for the Liebster award by Roshelle & Alyssa. So exciting haha. 
The Liebster Award is an initiative designed to promote new and/or small blogs.

How does it work? 

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they asked you with their nomination.

2. You must pick 11 nominees and tell them that they've been nominated. You cannot pick the person who nominated you.

3. You must ask your nominees the 11 questions
 of your choice.

My answers to Roshelle & Alyssa's question 
  1. What is your favourite part about running a blog? I like how I have a hobby now, meaning I don't spend my life studying, and how I look forward to writing about things. 
  2. What is a quote you live by? Everything happens for a reason.. because it does. 
  3. Quick, you have 5 minutes. Which makeup products do you reach for? Easy, I do my makeup in 5 minutes for work, so my smashbox BB cream, any blusher that I can get hold of, and then I reach for my mascara, powder & lipstick to put in my bag so I can do it underground/in the car. 
  4. Out of all the makeup categories (i.e- foundation, blush, lip stick) which is your favourite? I think it would be lipstick, I love a good lipstick. 
  5. What is your favourite store? Depends, but I think I'd have to choose Selfridges, because I sort of spend my life there. 
  6. You're at Sephora, what section do you go to first? There's no Sephora in London :( But if I thought of a big make-up store in London (I actually can't think of  anything as amazing as Sephora) it would be.. the makeup forever stand? lol.
  7. What is your favourite makeup/beauty trend for the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer? For Fall/Autumn and Winter, I love a dark lip. I've been doing that for years. I also love glittery nails in the Winter. For Spring and Summer, I love pink lips! 
  8. Which celebrities do you look for inspiration in for fashion/beauty? If you know me, you know I love Taylor Swift, I think her makeup is so cute, but I don't think I really use her for inspiration, I like to be myself haha. 
  9. What's one thing you hope you'll learn from having a blog? Ermmm, I didn't really make a blog to learn anything, but I guess.. to be a better writer? 
  10.  What advice would you give to someone who just started a blog? The same advice my <3 gave me - only blog about something if you enjoy blogging about it. 
  11. What are your 5 tips to keeping your blog successful? I haven't been blogging a lot yet, so I'm not sure if my blog is successful and I'm in a place to give tips, but; 1. Same as above, blog because you enjoy it. 2. Be sociable. 3...That's all I can think of. Sorry!
