The Liebster Award

Really excited to have been tagged in the Liebster Award by LPage Beauty (go have a look at her blog at http://lpagebeauty.blogspot.co.uk)! I haven't been blogging for long at all so it's so nice to know that people are actually reading what I post, I've seen the Liebster Award a few times before but I never really knew what it was. Basically you answer a 10 part Q&A using the questions asked by the blogger who nominated you and the idea is that this is awarded to bloggers with a smaller following in order to publicise them more. After you've answered your questions you then nominate up to 11 more bloggers.

1. What made you want to start blogging?
I always loved seeing other bloggers reviews of products before I bought anything, I found this the best way to find amazing new products that I might have never heard of before! Funnily enough YouTube was what really pushed me into creating a blog, I loved the online community around it but I would always be far too shy to make a YouTube channel plus I've always loved writing so I thought why not make my own blog! Also since I was spending so much money on make up and my boyfriend was sick of hearing me talk about it I thought why not share my opinions with people who might want to hear them!

2. What's your favourite high street retailer? 
I love Topshop however I find it too pricey to buy loads of everyday clothes from there so I love getting going out clothes from there and I find H&M really good for everyday clothes as it's so affordable! 

3. What's your favourite holiday destination?
I went to Mexico in 2014 and fell in love! It literally has everything you could want, I prefer a chill out holiday with fun excursions and you can seriously do so much here. I'm not one for partying on holiday but if that's what your into then you can get all that there and more. Plus the weather and hotels are amazing, only downside is the really long flight but it is definitely worth it. 

4. Are you a sweet tooth or savoury girl?
Savoury without a doubt! I would so much rather have snack food than anything sweet, I've got such a weakness for crisps and sausage rolls which is so bad but I just love them. I very rarely crave anything sweet and in a restaurant I would ALWAYS choose a starter over a pudding! 

5. Do you have any holy grail products?
MAC Blankety is my holy grail lipstick, literally the perfect colour, along with something I haven't had for long which is the Mary Lou Manizer by theBalm, the most amazing highlighter and unless something insanely good comes along I don't think that will change. I'm yet to find my holy grail foundation...one day though!

6. Do you have any hobbies other than blogging?
Sadly no, I think that is why I love blogging so much! I'm either always at work or university so I don't have time for much else apart from blogging along side that. 

7. Who is your favourite band/artist?
I'd have to say Ariana Grande, I'm obsessed with her voice I just don't understand how it is possible to be that good?! I wish I could steal her voice and then I would be a very happy girl, I get really jealous of people who can sing. I have her album in my boyfriend's car and I listen to it that much he knows all the words to her songs now!

8. Do you have any celebrity crushes?
There is definitely the obvious ones like Leonardo DiCaprio however I am obsessed with an actor called Max Thieriot from Bates Motel, he's just too pretty. I also really like Connor Weil from MTV's adaption of Scream.

9. What's been your favourite life experience so far?
I know I already mentioned it but it was my holiday to Mexico with my boyfriend, we had the most amazing trip and it literally felt like a dream that never happened! The downside of having such an amazing time though is that you feel like you will never top it but we are off to Florida next year so hopefully that will be even better!

10. Do you have a favourite make up brand?
This is really difficult because I love mixing it up from all brands, Benefit was the first brand I got hooked on and I loved it, however if I have to pick one that I love overall it's going to have to be Too Faced. It's got the gorgeous packaging and amazing products so definitely Too Faced,
