I have been nominated for the Liebster Award :) I'm so thrilled to have been nominated by the lovely Hope Aslinger, go check out her amazing blog Here.

So to be honest when I was told by hope that she had nominated me, I really had no clue what this award was about but I did some research and read the information on Hope's blog and now I think I have a fair idea on what it is. So this award is for bloggers who have been nominated to give it to other bloggers. These bloggers have to have less then 200 followers. ( I have used the follower count on bloglovin because it was easier that way)  I think this is a brilliant idea, it really helps people get to know you and to keep finding more interesting blogs. 

The Rules of the Liebster Award
  1. Link to the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Answer the 10 questions given to you by the nominator.
  3.  Nominate 5 to 10 bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
  4. Make up your own 10 questions or use the 10 your nominator gave you.
  5. Leave a comment on your nominee's blog about their award.
 Hope's questions to me:

1. What is your favourite thing about being a blogger?
I think their are lost of things about being a blogger that I love but I especially because I get to meet and talk to people who are into the same things as I am. I have talked to some lovely people since starting my blog who have been super nice and really welcoming. I didn't feel like an outsider which may be sappy but it really is an amazing place to make some new friends who have common interests with you. 

2. Do you prefer lipstick or some sort of lip balm on a daily basis?
Hands down It has to be a lip balm. Don't get me wrong I love my lipsticks but I'm addicted to lip balms, Their easy to apply throughout the day & keeping your lips in good condition at the same time. My favourite lip balm at the minute is My Burt's bees lip balm. 

3. What is the most you have ever spent on one single beauty item? 
This is a really good question, and this really made me think on what was the most expensive product so I had a thing and finally came up with... My Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturiser. It cost me a grand total of €48 in Harvey Nichols. Crazy I know, but totally Worth every penny. I use this every day and I will definitely be re-purchasing when it runs out. 

4. What are your favourite clothing stores to shop at?
Its going to be no surprise but I love shopping at Penny's (Primark). They have some really good stuff for affordable prices. I think you can find basics to some really nice on trend pieces. 

5. What is your favourite quote?
My favourite quote is something that means a lot to me. 
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”~ Nelson Mandela

6. What is your favourite perfume this time of year?
I have to say this is a hard one but I think my favourite has to be Lady Gaga Fame. 

7.  Are you one of those girls who keep their nails painted all the time or is it a rare occasion?
I am most definitely one of those girls who has their nails painted all the time. I hate my nails bare because I think it looks horrible on me. Have a colour on my nails make my chubby fingers look better ha ha! 

 8. What is your favourite makeup brand? 
I really could not choose just one. But my favourite makeup brands that I tend to use a lot & love are Estee lauder, Art deco and Laura Mercier. 

9.  Where would you go if you could take a dream Vacation? 
Didn't even need to think about this one! NEW YORK!!! I would love to go New York, its looks beautiful and it had been my dream since I first saw the movie Home Alone Lost In New York! I re-watched this as a kid so many time I actually broke the video. I now have it on DVD & still continue to watch it more than I should! 

10. What do you buy more of: Makeup, Hair care or bath and body stuff?
I have a unhealthy obsession with buying makeup so that would have to be the answer to that question.
