Liebster Award


While this is technically my second nomination for the Liebster Award; it is my nomination from Kayleigh over at Hazelnut Musings that I am accepting.

The rules of the Liebster Award stand as:
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
  • Answer the set questions provided to you by your nominator.
  • Nominate an link to ten bloggers; especially those with less than 200 followers.
  • Create a new list of ten questions to be passed on to your nominees.1. What do you like most about yourself?
This would be the moment when people may be like 'oh, I'm kind' or 'I'm open-hearted', but not me. I mean, I have an abundance of pretty great qualities about me, but that not what I like most.

I like my 'ability' to deal with other people's bad attitudes. Like, if you are rude or obnoxious to me, I'll be all like 'oh sorry, that's my problem' on the outside, while I plot your demise on the inside. It takes a LOT form me to truly unleash on a person. I am more likely to destroy people with being overly kind, than to put poison in your tea...

Harsh? Yes. But oh-so true.

I'm still a good person :)

2. What is your favourite book?

There's not really a singular book that holds my interest; I like a large variety: fantasy, historical, romance, horror. Put a book in front of me and I will read it. If I particularly like a book then I end up going into hibernation mode until it is complete. I have the bare minimum sleep and food, and won't leave the house. Needless to say, this is happening less and less...

Favourites include;
The Mortal Instruments Series, Pride and Prejudice, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Anne of the Green Gables,  and many, many more.

3. What are your top three beauty products?

Loreal True Match Foundation in Ivory - my uneven skintone and freckles must be subdued.

Bourjois Volumizer Mascara in Noir - my eyes are my most acceptable feature; perhaps even 'pretty'?

Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup - hands down my favourite everyday nude lipstick at the moment!

4. What would be the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?

I'd buy a home for me and my mum. A nice place, quite modern, with a garden for my pets to laze around in. A room for each of us with one or two spare. A nice large kitchen with a dining room, and a living room with sliding doors that led into the garden.

5. If you could be any fictional character, who would you be and why?

I haven't really put much thought into it... someone like Anne from 'Anne of the Green Gables', or Alice from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. Someone who has had adventure, or done something exciting in their lives.

6. What's your favourite way to relax?

Doing my nails. Working on nail art is oddly soothing to my mind; the harder the pattern the happier I am!

7. What advice would you give to other bloggers?

If you want it, go get it! Who's going to stop you? No one but yourself. Don't be worried about gaining followers; I pour my soul into my blog, but only have two people following it. I don't care as it makes me happy to have it out there. Decide if what you want is the big 'beauty blogger, glitz and glam ideal lifestyle' or to get your ideas, thoughts and opinions about what matters to you out there!

8. If you could invite anyone for dinner, dead or alive, who would it be?

It would be Olly Murs, Michael Buble, or Will Young. My mum really loves them so it would make her day :)

9. If you could time travel, what time period would you got to? Why?

The Victorian Era; hands down! So Many films and books that I have experienced are centred on that period of time. I'd really like to experienc it for myself; the fashions, the lifestyle, the innovations etc.

10. What is your favourite quote?

"Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure" - George Edward Woodberry

The ten questions that I give to my nominees are:

1. What is the one word that makes you cringe?
2. Favourite beauty product?
3. Cat or dog?
4. What could you not live without?
5. What is your biggest blogging problem?
6. Top blogging tip?
7. Weather - rainy or sunny?
8. What is your favourite food?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
