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 :)

A Little Review

Oh hey, 
Today I tested out a few make-up products and would like to share my thoughts on them so here we go.


  1. Me,Me Me - Flawless, tinted moisturiser.


I really really liked this product,I got this in number 02, which is called beige blush, I naturally have fair skin and normally go for ivory, but I found that the beige was actually not that dark and was perfect for my skin tone.

When I applied it, it was very light weight, felt like I wasn't wearing anything at all. It gave me a natural look and also good coverage. It evened out my skin tone really nicely, which you don't get with some tinted moisturisers, sometimes they can be a bit patchy, but this wasn't at all, which I thought was brilliant.
It did have a small smell to it, it wasn't off putting or overpowering, which is great because sometimes make-up products can be overpowering which can be distracting and it also causes me to get headaches.I liked the fact it had very little perfume in it.I thought it was also great because it includes a SPF 15.
overall I really liked this tinted moisturiser, it was easy to use. The packaging is simple, I think this is really good for people who don't need or want to wear foundation.
Using just a little bit of concealer under the eyes, any blemishes/red patches you may have, apply the moisturiser on top, a little bit of mascara and to finish it off with a nude lipstick or gloss. This will give you a natural everyday look.
I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

2. Max Factor - Lipfinity,lasting lip tint.


I got the Max Factor lip tint in 03 which is called Mellow Rose. I like the packaging of this, it is in a like pen/marker form as shown above. It is very easy to apply it does also have a nice enough finish to it.
The problem with it I felt was that it did wear off quite fast and had to keep reapplying it. After awhile it looks a bit dull looking and worn out, it drys out your lips a lot. You might need to wear a hydrating balm on top. It also tastes a bit funny, so as long as you don't lick your lips you should be fine :P 
I found that the Revlon just bitten is quite similar to this but with Revlon you do get a balm at the other end which I think is so good. So if you are to get a pen lip tint I would highly recommend the Revlon just bitten.

3. NYC - High Definition,separating mascara.


I loved,loved loved this mascara so much. I thought it had a good size wand and it was really slim and sleek. The wand didn't gather any clumps when being applied. I found that I really didn't need that much on, it gave me fand out, fuller looking lashes with no clumping what so ever. My lashes were completely evened out and separated out nicely. The mascara itself had no chemically fragrance what so ever. The packaging is quite slim aswell and in a very yellow yellow will make it easier to find in your handbag.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and everyone, I think it's also at a reasonable and affordable price which is a mega bonus.

4. Benefit - Bene Tint


At the higher end of the the products I have Benefits Bend Tint.
You can use this for both lips and cheek bones.
I firstly used this on my lips. I did think it was really awkward to apply as the the applicator is this small slim brush. I had to usr my fingers which I didn't like because I ended up with a stained finger. As I put it on I noticed that it sinks into your lips really fast and can become patchy in places and becomes a little uneven. It also really dried out my lips, you would 100% have to wear a balm on top. It does wear off quite quickly too and can make lips to become very tight. 
On the other hand they have some really nice selection of colours and smells nice too.

I then lastly applied to my cheekbones. I did have to to apply with my fingers, the brush is to be fair a bit rubbish. I wad impressed with the results, it gave me s natural flushed finish and a nice glow. It is very light weight to put on and wear, I think I much preferr this to powdered blushers, as it feels a lot nicer. 
If you are going to use the brush though on cheekbones, do not leave it sit in your skin for too long as it will leave a stained line mark which is difficult to blend away. I do think this product is a little bit overpriced for what you actually get, which is not a lot as it runs out really fast.
Overall I thought this product is better used for cheeks than lips.
I would recommend this if you are looking to get a natural looking blush.
Sorry Benefit, better luck next time.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and helped you out a little. There will hopefully be more stuff like this on the way.
