The Liebster Award

Hey guys!!

I've been meaning to do this post for around 3 weeks now... oops!! But Jaylee was lovely enough to nominate me for the Liebster Award!

If you’ve not heard of the Liebster Award before, it’s something that gives us bloggers the chance to reach more people, and you readers to find out more about us!
The rules are:
1.You must link back to the person who awarded you
2.You must answer the 11 questions given by the nominee before you
3.You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions
4.You cannot nominate the person who nominated you
5.You must tell your nominees that they have been nominated by you
Here are my answers to her questions -
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I wanted a hobby for ages, and I've been reading blogs for so long, so I finally gave in, thinking that no one would ever read it ;)
2. What are your top three favourite beauty brands?
It's so hard to choose :( but I'd definitely say E.L.F Cosmetics, as its so affordable but high quality, and then Maybelline, which is a standard priced brand, with high quality products, and finally Benefit, as their products are so gorgeoous, and have amazing results!

3. Pick your ultimate go-to outfit.
Ooo, I've always loved skater skirts in the colder months, especially paired with a leather jacket, but I think a good pair of jeans are a wardrobe necessity, with a nice warm jumper, and a statement necklace!
4. Be honest – is there a popular fashion/beauty trend that you don’t like?
I cannot stand wedged hi-top trainers, I think they just look vile, and it annoys me so much! haha!
5. What camera do you use for your blog pictures?
I just use my iphone 5 camera at the moment, because I've managed to misplace my camera somehow :( but I'm hoping to get a new one soon!
6. If you had to pick between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest, what would you pick and why?
It would have to be instagram, as I think it's really interesting being able to have an insight into someone's life purely through photographs.
7. What is your favourite song at the moment?
After recently seeing Boyce Avenue again, I just can't stop listening to their songs, I love both their originals and their covers, but I'd say that at the moment my favourite has to be their cover of Demons - Imagine Dragons.

8. What would you like to achieve by the end of the year?
I'm hoping to pass my first year of uni haha!! But also, I want to change my reading taste, as at the moment I prefer to read contemporary novels, so over Summer I want to read more 'classics', and I also want to invest in more 'high end' products, and hopefully move onto buying my own URL! 
9. If you could collaborate with another blogger, who would you pick?
I would love to do a collaboration with Tanya Burr or Zoella, as theirs was one of the first blogs I started reading, and they look like so much fun!! But I loved doing a collaboration with Joanna, and we're already planning another!
10. What three pieces of advice would you give to someone that is thinking of blogging?
To put your fears aside and just go for it!! I was so worried that people were coming to be nasty about it, but I've had such a good reception, and now I love blogging, and planning new posts for you all! Have confidence in yourself!!
11. If you had to parachute out of a plane with any animal, what would you pick and why?
Oh god, it would have to be either a duck or a sheep haha! I absolutely adore them both, and they're just adorable!!

And I nominate -
Joanna Sprinkles                    Sophie's Vanity
Jessica Whatley                     Small Girl Big Dreams
My Life CHH                           Sara Belleza Beauty
Monelle                                 SIan Seccombe
Lucy Jane Webb                  Christina
And your questions are girls -
1) What is your favourite part of blogging?
2) Do you think it is better to have your own URL, or to use blogspot/wordpress etc?
3) Which of my posts is your favourite and why?
4) If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life what would it be?
5) Do you think it is necessarily 'good' to use editing techniques when using swatches etc?
6) Is your blog your main excuse behind the purchase of many beauty items? like me... ;)
7) Why did you begin a blog?
8) Do you prefer high street or high end beauty products?
9) What do you prefer, beauty or fashion?
10) Would you ever consider a subscription box, (such as glossybox)?
11) Do you prefer creating posts on a laptop/computer or tablet/phone?

So there we are! Good luck on your posts, and I hope you've all enjoyed reading my responses! Don't forget to tag me in and let me know when you've done them so I can read them!!
