Liebster Award

Hello Everyone,

Hope you’ve all had a great week – it’s finally Friday! πŸ˜€

I’d like to start off by firstly thanking Fangirling Owl for the nomination πŸ™‚ I’m so thankful for you thinking of me, I really appreciate it! She’s got a great blog and I definitely recommend you check it out!

Below, are the rules for theΒ Liebster Award:

Liebster Award Rules

So here are my answers to Fangirling Owl‘s questions:

1. Name 5 of your favourite Makeup products?Β 

Hmm 5 only? πŸ™‚ Ok, I’ll try…. 1) L’Oreal True Match Foundation, 2) Nars Creamy Concealer, 3)MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural, 4) NARS Blusher in Madly and 5) Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eye Pencils. Really wish I could list a few more 😦

2. Bath or shower?

Shower – no time for baths unfortunately! I usually only have them when on holiday, however I tend to get fed up after 10 mins!

3. Do you have a pet?

A super hyper and naughty dog πŸ™‚ He’s a mixed breed between a border collie and a hunting dog. Super cute πŸ™‚ Unfortunately I couldn’t take him with me when I moved out (no garden) so he’s stayed at home with my dad. At least it’s just a 10 minute walk to get there so I see him quite often πŸ™‚

4. What one thing could you not live without?

Self-tanner! I live in a country that’s hot for at least 7 months of the year and do not tan arghhh!

5. Favourite makeup product?Β 

Hmm probably foundation. I love a flawless base πŸ™‚

6. What are you most obsessed with? (a TV show or film or an app or any random thing ):

YouTube videos, Series (currently Grey’s Anatomy & Revenge), white-blonde hair (I drive my hairdresser insane), health foods/diet/teas, and of course, make up.

7. Celebrity crush?

Don’t have any…

8. If you could be anybody in the world who would you be?

Believe it or not, I’ve never really thought about this. To be honest though, even though it would be interesting being someone else, I’d just rather be the better version of me, if that makes sense πŸ™‚

9. Favourite colour?

It depends πŸ™‚ As a colour by itself I’d say an aquamarine. For home interiors: white, black, & neutral earthy tones, make up: corals and neutrals. I could go on….Sorry if I complicated it πŸ™‚

10. What’s the last book you read?

I got “persuaded” into reading the first book of the 50 shades trilogy… can’t say I was too impressed. I’m currently reading something better – ‘Tell No One’ by Harlan Coben – Rachel Ellis got me interested in this one! Loving it so far!

11. What’s the best and worst thing about blogging?Β 

Best: I get to do what I love – talking about beauty/health etc. I also get to interact with a lot of great people that have similar interests to me, as well as getting to learn about new things. I find it to be a very friendly and supportive community and so happy to have met some wonderful people πŸ™‚

Worst: It can take up quite a lot of time. Even though it’s enjoyable, sometimes I need to try and find the best balance between a full time job, studying, meeting friends, family, exercise, quality time with my partner, me time.. oh and blogging time! Well, that’s life πŸ™‚

11 Random Facts About Myself:

  1. I’m obsessed with music and used to dream about being in a girl band when I was (a lot) younger!
  2. I love to bake, especially brownies and red velvet cake – but try not to do so as I’ll end up eating…
  3. I enjoy my job, but sometimes dream of just quitting and travelling for a year before ‘settling down’. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
  4. I lived in Germany till I was 5 – really wish I had continued to learn the language.
  5. I love to read – wish I had more time to do so though.
  6. I NEED my sleep – a lot of it. I get very cranky if I get less than 8 hrs. I like a bit more on the weekend too πŸ™‚
  7. It takes a very long time for me to open up to people – I don’t trust easily. In fact, the only person who knows me, who is aware of this blog, is my boyfriend.
  8. I’m fascinated with human behaviour. I just love analysing why people do what they do and why they became who they are.
  9. I always keep a secret and return things that are lent to me. I just can’t stand it when people can’t do this, it drives me crazy.
  10. I cannot stand judgemental gossip. It. makes. me. sick.
  11. I’m an optimist and never give up πŸ™‚
