The Liebster Award!

Monday, 28 July 2014

Happy Monday Sweet Honeybee's

This is a particularly good Monday for me as, over the weekend, I have been given four Liebster awards! Not only am I totally shocked - I am just so thankful <3 

I absolutely love writing my blog, and more recently - making videos for my channel, I love trying new products and seeing comments from you lovely readers, so to be awarded for doing something I love is just fantastic. 
I have won a Liebster award before and it was so much fun - so to be awarded four more of them is just incredible - its such a great way to meet new bloggers - and to introduce all my lovely readers to new blogs too! 
My first award came from the Sara - her blog is so beautiful and relaxing to read (Here). The second came from Rachel - Her blog is pure awesome (Here). The third is from Jess, her blog is so pretty (Here) and the Fourth is from Alice - here blog is so fashionable (Here). Thank you all so much - you're all so lovely and I cant wait to get to know your blogs better!

The way the Liebster works is that Once you have been nominated you must;

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, and link back to them.

2. Answer the questions they sent you.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to answer your own set of questions.
4. Notify these 11 bloggers you nominated them.

This is great as you get to know me a little better and we get to meet new bloggers (and blogs!) together!

My first set of Questions are from Sara;

Favourite childhood TV program?
Oh Wow - what a decision this is! Its so hard to decide but I guess Id have to say Recess - that show RULES!!!

Do you prefer cats or dogs?
My Mum has always had cats and as lovely as they are - I'm more of a dog kinda girl, they're just so much more fun and affectionate - plus you can teach them to shake hands ;)

What's your all time favourite Make up brand?
Oooh another tough one - I think I'm gonna have to say Maybelline though - their mascaras are outta this world!

                                                    Favourite Holiday destination?
Oh my goodness, these just get harder! If this is out of the places I've been, then Id have to say New York (obviously!) - but I am just dying to travel America more  - particularly Georgia, Nashville and Memphis <3

If you had to live on one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
Watermelon - 'nuff said ;)

Favourite colour?
Hmm I dont know if i have an ultimate favourite but I love purples and blues - they're vibrant and awesome!

Do you like Themeparks? If so which one is your fave?
I'm not a massive fan, but I am Dreaming of going to Disney Florida next year!

Do you have any pets?
Dan & I have recently moved out and we don't have any of our own pets yet, but when we lived at my mums we shared her 2 cats Susie & Izzy - They're gorgeous, even if a little grumpy!

Favourite clothing store?
Ahhhh! Why are you doing this to me Sara?! Haha! I Love Primark (most of the time!)  and also New Look <3 Top shop is my Splurge Special haha!

One thing you can't live without?
My Engagement ring - my finger feels so bare without it!

Favourite blogger?
 There are so many Blogs that I love to rad but I am soooo loving Holly's blog (Here) right now as she is also planning her wedding and I love talking wedding things with her!

Thanks for the Questions Sara!

My Next set of Questions come from Rachel;

1. What did you want to be when you 'grew up'?
I always wanted to be an actress - I studied Theatre at school and college and I'd still love to do it now, I just don't know how to break into it!

2. What's your guiltiest make-up pleasure?
False lashes! I used to wear them every day a few years ago, but I stopped myself and now I love nothing more than putting on a pair of lashes for a special occasion!

3. What is your evening relaxing routine if you have one?
I'm not sure I have a routine but I love to cuddle with Dan and Watch the Walking Dead - but now that the season is finished we have started Watch Orange is the New Black! I also Love to wash all my make up off and feel fresh and free!

4. What made you start blogging?
I was covering Maternity leave at a salon and when my cover finished and I left the job I really wanted to continue sharing my love of the beauty industry and I knew that Blogging was the way forward - there are always new brands and products to discover and its a very exciting atmosphere!

5. If you had £100,000, what would you spend it on, and why?
I would buy my Dads house for him and get my mum a holiday home. I would pay off the rest of our wedding and book a kick ass honeymoon - ohh and keep some over for a major make up haul!

6. Have you got any pets?
Dan and I don't have any in our new house yet, but we'd both love a dog!

7. (Random one!) did you watch Blackfish? What did you think of it?
Never seen it and never heard of it haha!

8. Do you like face wipes or do you prefer a real cleanser?
Face wipes are a MASSIVE  no-no for me, they just don't do the job - if you're not gonna do a proper cleanse, then don't bother at all haha!

9. What's your overall life ambition?
To be happy. Happiness is the key to a healthy, long life!

10. If you were Prime Minister and could make up one new law, what would it be and why?
That's so hard. I think politics are so corrupt, but I would love to make things fair. If you do a crime you do the time - none of this airy fairy sentence business!

11. What 3 celebrities would you have afternoon tea with?
Oh gosh! Josh Turner, Brad Paisley & Barrack Obama baby!

3. If you could live in one country in the world where would you live?

4. Why did you start blogging?
I think I might have answered this before, but simply because I wanted to explore and expand my love of the beauty industry!

5. What is your beauty bad habit?
Not flossing - I know you really should but I just cant bring myself to do it - Im so scared im gonna cut my gums!

6. What is the one make up brand you could not live without?
MUA are fantastic for this, they are so affordable and have every product you could ever need!

Not including Disney films, Id have to say its a tie between 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' and 'Water for Elephants' - they are visually stunning and the Soundtracks are mesmerising - I have them on my iPod!
