the liebster award!

Hey guys!

Today's post is going to be a little different.. I was nominated by the lovely Ellie (can you find her blog here) for a Liebster Award! I don't know about you, but I always see these floating around on blogs and I think they are such fun. It's basically a way to promote newer bloggers and connect us all, which is a nice idea :)

The rules are... 

1. Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you
2. Pick an additional 11 people to nominate with under 200 followers
3. Create a new list of 11 questions to ask those you have nominated
4. Inform your nominees of the award

1. Cream blush or powder blush?

I actually don't own any cream blushes! I'm not really a blush type of gal, due to my ability to blush quite naturally. But, I would have to go with powder blushes for this one.

2. Favourite genre of music? (You can pick more than one)

I wouldn't say I have a favourite genre - I have a very eclectic music taste. I really like a bit of everything. But I am partial to Biggie Smalls, Lorde, Haim, Ariana Grande.. You get the idea.

3. Favourite weather?

I love cold weather. I just love rugging up, wearing my comfy clothes and uggs. Big ol' cup of tea and good movies - that's where I'm at.

4. Favourite shop?

Ever? Too hard. If we're going to go with makeup, I guess it'd have to be Priceline - I literally spend so much money there. But, my favourite shop of all is ULTA. You have no idea how much I wish that that was here in Australia. Drugstore and High End makeup at US prices? For sure count me in.

5. Favourite mascara?

Dior's Diorshow Mascara - the original formula! I have a review on it here if you'd like to check it out

6. Scone - is it pronounced like 'thrown' or 'gone'? 

Um neither? Scone is pronounced like how you would say the 'Mon' part of Monday. That's the only way I can describe it haha

7. Which is the best Disney princess?

Ariel! I always wanted to be a mermaid.

8. Boots or Superdrug?

Don't have either in Australia!

9. Do you use fake tan?

Of course! I have to, as I don't normally tan naturally because it's really bad for my skin.
10. Liquid, gel, or kohl eyeliner?

I would choose kohl I think. I just use it more often.

And that's it! Again, thanks to Ellie for nominating me :)

Now I nominate:

Kirsty from Lipstick Addict
Rebecca from RebeccaRuhles
Amber from Amber Lorraine
Verity from A Day in the Life of Miss Verity Price
Jae from LushxKisses
Kate from Kate-Mariexo
Zhahara from aZHian Beauty
Ashii from Beauty for Thought
Yolanda from My Beautyy Tooth
Macy from Macy's Beauty Blog

My questions

1. Why did you start blogging?
2. Did anyone inspire you?
3. What do you hope to achieve with your blog?
4. What's better - gummy bears or mashed potato?
5. Favourite high end and drugstore foundation?
6. What are the products you would use everyday?
7. Is there any makeup product (i.e. foundation, blush, bronzer etc) that you could live without?
8. Favourite eyeshadow palette?
9. Where is the best place to buy makeup (can be online)?
10. If you had to pick one brand (can be high end or drugstore) that you could only use for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
11. How do you store your makeup?

And that's me done :) Thanks again to Ellie for nominating me!

Until next time....
