The Liebster Award



I recently have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the gorgeous Cat Malone - http://mentallybeautiful.com/


For anyone who is unaware of what this award is all about,look no further, I will explain all.
The Liebster Awards is an award given by blogger to other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
The main focus of this award is to encourage new friendships and connections with other bloggers. When nominated you are given 11 questions to answer in a blog post.

The rules are as followed:


  1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
  3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
  4. Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
  5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have less than 200 followers.
  6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
  7. List these rules in your post. Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
  8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)



1. Is your blog serious or a hobby in your spare time?

Umm well at the beginning I was taking it very seriously and would post constantly, now not so much, I think it's now a hobby.

2. How would you define your blog?

I would have to describe it mainly as a beauty/lifestyle blog

3. What achievement are you most proud of?

Crickey...I really had to think about this one. I think maybe my proudest achievement so far was moving to the UK on my own,
(sounds so lame) but it really made me grow up and do things I wouldn't necessarily have done before.

4. Where do you like to be when you are blogging?

I literally do not mind where I am as long as I am completely alone, being around other people distracts me and therefor can't focus.

5. Which blogger do you admire?

Now this is going to sound so cheesy as she is the one who nominated me but Cat Malone at http://mentallybeautiful.com/

6. Why?


Cat is a blogger in which I hugely admire because not only is she an amazing person but her blog is also,
I've seen her blog grow and blossom into something truly fantastic.
No matter how stressed out or busy she gets, she always seems to come out with these brilliant posts
(in which I oh so envy her for lol)
I could literally read her blog for hours on end, 100% fantastic, I can see it going along way in the near future!

7. If you could write about a topic you don't currently blog about what would it be?

I would write about World War II, I have a weird interest with it (don't ask)
I mean it would probably bore everyone to sleep, so that is why I'm not a blogger of history! 

8. What's your signature beauty tip or trick?

Hmmmm I'm not sure if I have a signature beauty trick or tip... I think my only religious beauty trick I do is, when applying
bronzer to cheekbones I also apply it to my jawline as it helps to define it.

9. What's the most important thing you took from your school days?

Well I was never very good at school, but I would have to say I learnt not to take crap from anyone and to just be yourself,
If you want to do something go and do it, don't let anyone stand in your way.

10. Where would you like to be in five years time?


I'd like to be in a hot country, on the beach, with a drink in my hand :P

11. Have you written a bucket list?

No I have not, I think once I get a bit older I might consider it as it's a great idea :)



Eleven Facts About Me

1. I had my appendix removed on valentines day, nothing says romance like blood and guts

2. My favourite animal is a capybara. Fun fact, they're the largest living rodent, insert image here --->





3. I've dyed my hair 9 different colours

4. I went to college to study hair & media makeup, didn't enjoy it so left

5. I strongly dislike small dogs

Body Lotions


Heyo,
I am going to do a little body lotion review. This is only going to be a short one as I am only reviewing 3 lotions.
I am going to start off with
Yes To Carrots body butter. This is 'C Through The Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter'
I used to be OBSESSED with Yes To products, they are awesome because all the ingredients are natural, this is blended with carrot seed oil, has carrot juice, pumpkin, sweet potato and dead sea mud all crammed into one pot, which is bloody fantastic! This is really great for anyone suffering with dry skin, it keeps your skin moisturized for ages. The smell of it may not be everyone's cup of tea but I think it just smells really creamy and slightly sweet, it's a natural non chemically smell.





Secondly I have these two gems from a brand called Ginger & Co. I think they are quite a unknown brand but I thought I'd give them a go!
First I have this body lotion, it's called 'Soft On You Daily Lotion' it does make my skin really soft. The smell of this reminds me of Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. It contains mallow, lemon balm and rose. The product packaging is in a 1950's style which I think adds a nice touch. I like how it feels on my skin as it's not too oily and takes seconds to absorb, it also leaves my skin smelling delicious!




I then got their hand cream called 'Hand It To Me Dreamy HandCream' it again has the same scent as the body lotion. This really keeps my hands soft and hydrated all day long. I feel it is very important to regularly moisturize hands as you are constantly using your hands all day, everyday and they can get dry,sore and damaged so pampering them from time to time is wonderful as they will definitely thank you for it!
Side note: The one thing I loved that is written on the tube is this 'every boy in the town will want to hold your hand' I just thought this was really sweet!




Let me know if you have ever tried these, and what your thoughts are in them!

Must Haves ~ Collab

Hi there,
Today I have teamed up with the amazing and gorgeous 'a touch of everything' whose blog I will link below! We've decided to do 'My Top 10 Must Haves' collab. I am very excited to do this as it is my first collab, so I'm just going to get stuck in!

  1. The Righteous Butter by Soap & Glory.
    I can not stress enough on how much I love this body butter. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and smelling AMAZING!


  2. Kimono's
    I am loving these at the moment they are a serious must have for the summer.
  3. Instagram
    Right now I am super addicted to Instagram, I will be on it from the moment I open my eyes to the moment they close. I have two Instagram accounts, my personal one and my new one I just made for my blog & YouTube. So do give us a follow, links left below!

  4. My sunnies
    If it is a nice sunny day I simply can not go anywhere without them! My day is literally ruined if I forget them, as I am prone to headaches from the sun!

  5. Bronzer
    For all that know me, you will know that bronzer is my second love I can not go without!
  6. Brows
    My first love are my eyebrows. I like to keep them intact. I literally can't leave the house if my eyebrows aren't filled in or tweezed. My must have tweezers are these from tweezerman.


  7.  Perfume
    Another must have or mine is Chanel Chance perfume. This smells unreal, it has always been one of my faves but sadley I am running dangerously low! Saving the last spray for something special!

  10.  Spotify
    Last but not least my 10th must have is my Spotify playlists. They just cheer me up and take my mind off things. I will link my Spotify if anyone is interested to what I'm listening to!
