Liebster Award!

Hey Guys!

I've been nominated for a Liebster Award! I'm so honoured.When I got the notification on Twitter telling me Karun from Simply Karun had nominated, I was so shocked but more importantly grateful! I never thought my blog would be anywhere near what it is today considering it's just a hobby that barely anybody knows about.

Liebster blog award
I'm not sure where it originated from but the  main aim of it now are to promote blogs who have less than 200 followers. I think it's a great idea and I love that the blogging community helps to recognise others and help to promote fellow bloggers!

Firstly, you have to mention the person who nominated you and their blog.

Then, the person who nominates you (Karun in my case) has set 11 questions for me to answer and then I have to nominate 11 other people and give them 11 questions to answer as well.

So here goes:

1) What's your favorite thing about blogging? 

Finding about all these cool products/brands that I may not have ever come across or would have taken me ages to find out about them

2) Would you rather never be able to follow a trend again or give up makeup? 

If you asked me this 2 years ago I would have said give up make up but now I don't know how I would survive without make up! 

3)Give one interesting fact about yourself. 

I've been playing the piano since I was 5/6 (I'm 21 now)

4)What is your all time favorite beauty brand?

This is such a hard question. I like bits of many brands but gun to my head, it would have to be MAC/MUA. Sorry, I can't pick one.

5) What is your all time favorite beauty product?

It has to be MUA's Undress Me Too Palette

6) What trend are you loving at the moment?

I'm loving the pastel trend. I've always loved pastel colours and I'm happy to still rock it during winter time.

7)What is your favorite blog to read?

I love Patricia's blog ( Her style is amazing and I love her make up looks. You should check out her youtube channel as well. She's amazing and so funny!

8)What is your favorite type of post to write?

It would have to be a toss up between NOTD and a haul. Writing up a haul somehow justifies my spending...

9)What would your dream holiday be?

A cruise that takes me to America and the Caribbean

10)What is your ideal pamper evening?

Face mask and then doing my nails pumping loud music or watching my favourite tv shows. Just relaxes me and gets me ready for bed.

11) What piece of advice would you tell your younger self?

People's opinions really don't matter. 
My parents always told me this and I'm grateful they did as I didn't take much notice of people's opinions but sometimes, even now, I can get caught up thinking: what would people say/think? Will they laugh etc. I know it's difficult to believe it sometimes but you'll have a happier life not worrying about others and their opinions.

And these are the questions I have for my nominees:

1. What shop (online or high street) is your favourite?
2. Handbag or shoes?
3.Are you more adventurous with your eyeshadow or lipstick?
4. What's your favourite book?
5.Where's the best place you've visited?
6. How do you think your life would be different if you weren't blogging
7. Favourite drugstore brand?
8. Nail art- YES or NO?
9. Do you prefer shopping for beauty/skincare or clothes?
10. What's one trend that you just can't stand?
11. What's one thing you'd like to have accomplished by the end of this year?

And my nominees are:

1. Laura from

2. Gillian from

3. Amy from

4. Alyshia from

5. Hannah from

6. Jennie from

7. Sophie from

8. Heather from

Thanks for reading. It's a different type of post but it's nice to keep things fresh. Just showing my appreciation for my award and giving credit to those I feel deserve it. If you're one of the nominees do let me know when you've answered my questions. I'd love to know your answers!


  1. Thank you so much for nominating me! You have no idea how much I appreciate it. I've now done my own nominations. Thanks again! x

    1. No problem at all! You've got a great blog. I'll check out the post now. Thanks x x

  2. Yupeeeee... thank you for the nomination. I was just awarded by another blogger this week, but I will reply your questions too. I love the Liebster Award - it's always fun to give some nice details about yourself and I love reading other bloggers' answers and finding similarities with myself.

    I used to play piano too, but for much shorter period than you - only 4-5 years. And now.. years later, I only remember a few notes from a few compositions, but nothing too complicated. Playing piano has taught me a lot about discipline and patience though :)


    1. Yep. Playing the piano definitely helped to develop patience and discipline. Congrats on 2 nominations! You must definitely be doing something right then! :) x x

  3. I've vaguely heard about the Liebster Award before but I've never been nominated. Being a relatively new blogger, this is crazy. Thank you so much for the nomination! x

    1. No worries! You're very welcome! You've got a great blog! x x
