The Liebster Awards

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Jessica! Thank you so much!


What is the Liebster Award? The Liebstar Award was created to recognise, promote and welcome new bloggers to the blogging community.
What are the rules of the Liebstar Award? The rules are pretty simple:
* Thank the blogger who nominated you, including a link to their blog.
* Include the Liebstar Award sticker.
* Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you.
* Nominate 5 other blogs who lave less than 500 blog followers.
* Ask them 11 new questions.

Here are my answers to Jessica's questions:

What are the three tips that you would tell a new blogger?
My three tips would be to: write about what you love; celebrate each little milestone; and don't be embarrassed to self promote yourself!

If you were given £1000 right now, what would you do with it?
I would give it to a homeless person, as I feel like it would be everything to them - I don't know, it's quite mushy and hard to explain but I have always wanted to do something big like that for someone.

What are your four holy grail skincare products?
I'm so bad and I don't really have a proper skincare routine yet! I want to have a facial soon and really get talked through each step but for now my 'holy grail' products would be: a gentle exfoliator (mine is from No 7); an everyday face wash (mine is from Witch); a deep cleaning face mask (mine is from the Body Shop) and a super effective spot treatment (mine is from Lush).

List three things on your bucket list.
Three things on my bucket list are to: build and decorate my own home; get married and have children (calm down, not yet); and to become a good cook.

What's one thing you never leave the home without?
I never leave the house without my phone. I never even use it much, but I always get panicked because I feel that if something bad happens, I won't know.

What pushes you to keep blogging?
My pure love of makeup pushes me to keep blogging. I love talking about makeup, and at this stage, I've been talking to everyone I know so much about it that they are all sick of it now so I needed a new audience.

Which would you choose to give up if you had to: makeup, hair products or your bed?
I would give up hair products as I like my natural hair and hopefully it doesn't, but if that includes shampoo and conditioner too, I've heard a myth that apparently after quite a while your hair starts to clean itself? Sounds quite convenient. Otherwise people would just get used to my greasy hair after a while.

What is something you would tell your 12 year old self?
I would tell my 12 year old self to not worry about things as much, as I am such a worrier! I probably wouldn't listen though and just keep worrying.

How do you manage your time with blogging?
I think of posts in advance, take pictures if I have a particularly good lighting day and I have a good schedule of Wednesday's and Sunday's that I can fit around my college work.

Bath or shower?
Ooh this is difficult! I love baths as they are relaxing, but I have showers more often.

What is your dream holiday location?
Again with the tough questions! I would love love love to do a super long road trip through the USA.
