The Liebster Award - I Was Nominated!

As I went to check my blogs twitter the other day I discovered that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award by Ellen by Ellenblogsit who like me is new to the blogging scene so go give her blog a look; and if you're interested in her Liebster nomination blog post click here!

I was also nominated a second time which I was shocked about by Live*Life*Love and then a third time by Harriet Does Makeup! So a big thanks to all the nominations I received! *Edit: I have received a TON more nominations for this award since then so a major thank you to everyone that has since nominated me!*

so lets gets in to it!

10 random facts about me:
  • I recently just graduated from university and I'm now attending college to do a further diploma qualification.
  • When I was 16 I turned vegetarian and when I hit 17 I became vegan till I was 20! I eat meat again now mostly for ease as I commute a lot and I am always out and about with people but when the time comes I would love to turn Vegan again!
  • I have three pets, a Chihuahua and two chinchillas
  • Last year I pretty much took a break from make-up. I wore a bit of foundation occasionally and mascara but that was it. Towards the end of the year I realized just how much I missed playing around with make-up and in particular wearing my eyes dark like I used to at the beginning of the year! So I began wearing it out again!
  • I am obsessed with wearing boots and combat boots - I wear them with everything!
  • I am also obsessed with nail polish - I have far too much of it!
  • As well as beauty I am also in to gaming and reading!
  • My hair is pretty much always straight - on the odd occasion I curl it!
  • I am awful at applying eyeshadow but I am trying to learn!
  • I'm naturally blonde, I've been dying my hair black since I was 16. So for 5 years!

Ellen's Questions

1. What's your favourite song right now?
My favorite song right now is Please Don't Say You Love Me by Gabrielle Aplin. I absolutely love the lyrics. However since its been summer I have also been listening to The Beach Boys allllll the time on my Ipod!

2. Best memory of 2013 so far. 
That is a tough one! I have three main ones! Going to Wales for a weekend away, my 21st weekend and my graduation. 2013 has been a tough year but full of big events and dates!

3. Your 'holy grail' make up product.
At the moment I am really loving my Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation which I have reviewed here. It really is giving my skin that summer glow!

A fashion trend I don't like... hmmm. To be honest its one I can't work myself. The whole neon/bright colors trend is lovely but I am just not that confident. So I wear bright colors on my nails instead!

5. Best fashion/beauty tip you have in 10 words or less. 
Always always ALWAYS take your makeup off before bed!

Hand cream, perfume, hair brush... all necessities for me!
