The Beauty Award

So, I was nominated by the lovely Elisha-Rose Rowley to do 'The Beauty Award Tag' (by the way, if you don't already you should go and follow her and give her loads of love because she is very lovely! *grin!* You know me, I love a good tag - so I was very excited to answer the questions and I can't wait to pass it on to the next lovely bloggers! I hope you enjoy this chatty tag, and you can learn a little bit more about me!


Mention and thank the person who nominated you.
Answer the questions they have asked you.
Nominated 10 beauty/fashion/lifestyle bloggers 
Create 10 questions for them to answer.
Let your nominees know you have tagged them!


    1. Other than blogging, what else do you like to do in your spare time?
    Not a lot really to be honest! That's sort of one of the reasons I started blogging, because my life was turning into a bit of a routine and I was getting so bored - because I had nothing to do! Now blogging takes up 99% of my time, and I really don't mind that much! I suppose I do like to bake, but most of my baking turns into blog posts! I also like Netflix.. but I mean that's barely a hobby! 

    2. What is one product you keep re-purchasing?
    I always always have a Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer lying around! It has become my absolute go-to concealer and I honestly can't live without it! I feel like I've talked this product to death all over my blog (it's pretty much in any post where I mention makeup - no honestly, you can check that!) It just really does it's job well, it's not heavy but it's great coverage. Nothing more to say! 

    3. Who is your celebrity crush?
    So for years I was addicted to the TV show Glee (no shame!) and I was so so in love with Darren Criss - and I probably still am to be honest, no but seriously it got to the point where I had pictures of him all over my room! I'm not quite that in love (?) anymore - thank god! And as far as celebrity girl crushes go, I have SO many! Lea Michele is probably the top of the list though (coincidentally also from Glee!) 

    4. What is your go-to make-up product right now?
    My go-to makeup product (other than Rimmel Wake Me Up - which, I promise I will never mention again... probably!) I've really been loving my Ilamasqua higlighter in Aurora, it just really completes a makeup look for me and I can't leave the house without putting it on my face! I feel bad because I'm kind of neglecting all my other highlighters, but this one is just so gorgeous! 

    5. Tea or Coffee?
    Coffee, always coffee! I actually hate everything about tea, the taste, the smell! Oh my god the smell is the worst, I can't even make tea because I hate the smell! Actually tea-breath smell is probably my least favourite smell ever, which is really bad when you have a brother who is addicted to tea (no honestly, he drinks like 7 cups a day, I swear he's an old man!) The only tea I like is peach iced tea, particularly the Wagamamas peach iced tea - that is to die for! But no, I don't know where I'd be without my coffee, it's what gets me through the day! 

    6. Favourite takeaway food?
    If you asked me this like 2 years ago I would've for sure said chinese - I was addicted to chinese for some time, but I think I've now had it so much that I've finally gone off of it! I've now moved on to pizza (I don't know which addicted is better to be honest.) I love love love a good Dominoes or Pizza Hut - yes please! Dominoes garlic dip might be my favourite thing in the world...This is making me so hungry writing this! 

    7. What are three things that are in your hand bag?
    The first thing I thought of was a crap tonne of receipts. I'm one of those people who never cleans out her handbag and I tend to shove everything in there, like it'll hopefully makes it way to the bin.. funnily enough it doesn't and now it's all just collecting in the bottom of my handbag! I also always carry around my sunglasses, because the weather is so unpredictable here in the UK and you never know when the sun might actually appear, so I'm always prepared for that moment! I also carry around my umbrella for the opposite reason.. it's much much more likely to rain here, so I'm always prepared for this too! 

    8. What is your favourite part about blogging?
    I  really love the comments I get on my some of my more inspiring posts saying that I've helped or inspired someone, especially when it comes to mental health, because that's basically why I write them - to help at least one person! I'm also going to be cheesy and say I love the blogging community, because honestly I've met so many lovely people through blogging, and to be honest I didn't even know this blogging community even existed before I started - I'm so glad I did! 

    9. What inspired you to create your blog?
    Other than boredom, I guess I was inspired by reading Zoella and Poppy Deyes' blogs! I've always been a huge photography nerd and I love to talk about everything and anything so I was like - I can do what they do! 

    10. What are you most excited for in 2016?
    We've been looking around a few bigger houses recently, and we might be moving house so I am quite excited for that (if it actually happens!) We've only been in this flat for less than a year, but I'm beginning to get fed up with the lack of storage and we can rent an entire house for the price were paying here! Fingers crossed we find somewhere nice!! 


      1. What is your favourite type of post to write about? Why?
      2. If you were a superhero, what would your power be?
      3. If you had to get rid of one type of makeup (eg. lipstick) and you were never allowed to use it again what would you choose?
      4. If you could have any three course meal what would you choose for the courses?
      5. Name a song you love, but hate to admit?
      6. Would you rather only wear makeup on the weekends, or the weekdays?
      7. If you had to throw one item of clothing away from your wardrobe, what would you choose?
      8. What is your favourite blog post you have published? Why?
      9. Breakfast or lunch?
      10. Would you rather always be under dressed, or always be overdressed?
      I hope you enjoyed reading a bit about me, I can't wait for nominees to answer my questions because I am genuinely curious about the answers - some of them are too tricky for me to even answer (#3!!!)  If I haven't nominated you, feel free to answer the questions in the comments and thanks for reading!
