So yesterday I was nominated by the lovely Emma from Emma Bought What to take part in the Liebster Award. As I'm a small blog, I was so surprised to have been chosen and I'm so grateful to be able to get involved - especially after reading everyone elses' answers and checking out their blogs!

The Liebster Award is given to new bloggers with small followings (around 200 or less), or bloggers that have been around for less than two years. Like I said, I'm really appreciative of being recognised by Emma, and I'm excited to discover some new bloggers!

So how this goes down is pretty simple: I have to answer the 11 questions that have been asked by the person I was nominated by, and then I have to tag 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 questions I want them to answer!

Before I answer the questions, I'm going to let you know the fab blogs that I'm nominating and who you should definitely be checking out (note: I've only got 6 because I really haven't been round here for long! Does that count as cheating?):

Fleur from Wishes and Tea
Ambar from Her Little Loves
Jasmine Lauren from Miss Jasmine Lauren
Kathryn from Kathryn Monkcom
Katie from Beauty From Katie
Jasmine from Cultivation Of Jasmine

So, question time.

1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I found myself reading a lot of other blogs and watching a bunch of YouTubers and I wanted to get involved! I had my own little stash of products, an iPhone camera and a love of writing so I thought I'd give it a try.

2. Do you prefer a city break or a summer holiday?
That's so difficult because I love both! I went to Thailand last year and that's topped anywhere I've ever been so I'd have to go with a summer holiday.

3. What's your favourite high-street clothes shop?
There's so many, and I don't really buy my clothes depending on the brand, but I have a bunch of stuff from H&M and I love how cheap and cheerful it is so I'll have to say there.

4. Which Actor/Actress would play you in a movie?
I'd have to say either Amy Adams because of our red hair and her personality, or Jennifer Lawrence as she is such a talented goddess whom I've grown up watching (The Hunger Games fans raise your hands now).

5. Which 3 singers/bands do you listen to the most?
I'm consulting my Spotify playlist right now, and my top 3 would have to be Kendrick Lamar, Bryson Tiller and Ariana Grande (I have such a varied music taste, I honestly listen to everything).

6. What's your favourite animal?
I'm a Dog person through-and-through, but I love my guinea-pig too.

7. When you were growing up what job did you want to do?
I've always been the one that wanted to be a Doctor one day and a teacher the next. But the one that stands out most for me is an Author, which is still something I would do deep down if I had the opportunity.

8. Do you prefer a nude lip or a bold lip?
Always a nude lip, a classic Matte Velvet Teddy girl. I'm not confident enough for a bold lip even though I have the most gorgeous bright pink Urban Decay lip gloss sitting in my makeup tray.

9. What's your favourite makeup product at the moment?
Probably the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette. I got it the other day and I've been experimenting with all of the colours recently, I'm super impressed so far.

10. Do you prefer to straighten or curl your hair?
My hair is naturally curly which looks really lovely for the first day until it turns into a bird's nest overnight, so generally I keep it straight as that's the easiest way to style it.

11. If you could live anywhere in the World, where would it be?
I want to travel, everywhere. But if I could actually relocate, I'd fly straight to Los Angeles.

Ok. So it's time for my questions.

1. What is one makeup product you think is over-hyped?
2. If you had three wishes, what would they be? (And don't go wishing for more wishes!)
3. Winged eyeliner or no winged eyeliner?
4. What is your favourite season?
5. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you choose?
6. Name a makeup product you're dying to try?
7. Where do you want to be in 5 years?
8. What's a good movie that you've watched recently?
9. If you could drop everything and go anywhere right now, where would you go?
10. High heels or flats?
11. Who is your favourite high-end fashion designer?
