Liebster Blog Award!

I was tagged my the lovely Becky at Beauty Becky in her Liebster Blog Award post which was so great of her and reassured me that people do actually read and enjoy my blog which is a great thought!

Honestly, I had never heard of this before I was tagged but I've come to realise that it's such a great idea. The awards celebrate new/small blogs (less than 200 followers) and can help them to become known to a wider range of people, helping to boost pageviews, followers, etc.

The rules are:

1) Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2) Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, plus create 11 questions to be answered by those you have tagged.
3) Choose 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
4) Go on their page and tell them you have tagged them in the awards.
5) Remember, no tag-backs!

11 things about me:

1) I'm the middle child of 5, with two younger sisters and two older half-brothers.
2) I'm extremely organised.
3) I get emotional over the slightest thing.
4) I'm an aunt with two nephews and two nieces.
5) I love nothing better than spending time with those who mean the most to me.
6) I'm currently in my longest relationship - 7 months and still going strong :).
7) I make lists for just about everything.
8) I complain a lot.
9) I'm extremely OCD about my eyebrows.
10) I hate people with bad manners.
11) I love cute things, especially home made, my room is full of things!

Questions from Beauty Becky:

1) Why did you start blogging?
I've always loved writing and after reading blogs for a long time decided to give it a go myself. I felt it was a great way to express myself and the things I'm interested and it's so easy to communicate with people and meet others.

2) What is your favourite haircare brand and why?
Honestly, I don't really use much on my hair other than shampoo, conditioner and hairspray, so I suppose I'll just say those, I use Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends shampoo & conditioner and then the L'Oreal Elnett hairspray. Oh, Batiste dry shampoo is like my saviour!!!

3) Do you prefer long or short hair on yourself?
I love having long hair (mine goes to about my waist) however I have in the past had really short hair (think Victoria Beckham here) and I did like it and someday may go back to that, at the moment I'm just too scared!

4) What is your favourite nail polish colour?
Barry M Coral is a beautiful colour.

5) Tinted moisturiser or foundation and why?
Foundation as I'm quite conscious about my skin so like having the extra coverage.

6) Where would you like to live if you could live anywhere in the world?
I think I'd stay in England. Despite the weather I do love it here and I seem to find faults with everywhere else, for example bugs, ew!

7) High end or drugstore/high street makeup?
Drugstore for sure. Being on a part timer's budget I can in no way afford high end products, as much as I would love to have bucket loads of Mac!

8) If you could have any hair colour, which colour would you choose?
I'd love to be able to pull off being blonde, but a natural blonde, not a yellowy one.

9) How long ago did you start your blog?
I've had my blog since May 2012, so not long at all really!

10) How long have you been reading beauty blogs?
I've been reading beauty blogs for a couple of years, but only really got properly into them the past year or so.

11) Would you rather create your own fashion line or makeup brand?
Fashion line as you can be much more creative!

11 questions for those I've tagged:

1) What's your favourite colour?
2) What would your dream job be?
3) What made you decide to start a blog?
4) What is your favourite genre of blog?
5) If you could travel the world, where would you go?
6) What would you buy if you were to win the lottery?
7) Do you believe in things such as luck and fate? If so, why?
8) Fake tan or real tan?
9) What's one thing that you will never leave the house without?
10) Do you play any sports? If so, which?
11) Heels or flats?

I realised whilst doing this that I don't actually follow that many smaller blogs, meaning that I had to go out and find new blogs that I wanted to follow. It was great as I've found some of the ones above just today & I absolutely love them!! I may have only just started following them but I would definitely recommend that you check out their blogs and follow them too, they're wonderful!

  5. Ooo thank you! I can't be sure if I've done this before, I'll have to check!
    I think I would also stay in England, I like the way it is here, like when I was on holiday, as much as I loved it there, I could never live there. Even just the fact that the grass wasn't green puts me off living somewhere! That's a bonus of having a lot of rain, ha!
