So I was nominated for the Liebster Award by two very gorgeous bloggers, Ashlie from Ashlie Small & her wardrobe adventures and Lauren from hi my name is floz, thankyou very much ladies! The Liebster Award is basically a big old tag designed for us bloggers to discover new blogs and bloggers with under 200 followers.
The rules are as follows:
So since I was nominated by two people I have answered two sets of questions (ooh more content, lucky you!)
First up Lauren's questions:
1. Favorite nail polish brand?
Barry M. It has been since I first discovered nail polish in my early teen years!
2. High end or high street?
High street, because there is so much choice wherever you lie on the fashion spectrum
3.Best clothes shop?
My heart belongs to Topshop and I think it always will; even when I’m an old lady I will still be shopping there!
4. Lipstick or blush?
Lipstick! Lipstick is instant confidence in a tube and it just completes any outfit.
5. If you could, what one thing would you change about yourself?
Physically I would like to be curvier, but overall it would be my confidence. I would love to be able to walk into someplace new and not feel so awkward and paranoid.
6. Biggest achievement?
I’d have to say passing my A Levels and getting accepted onto my chosen course at university (Fashion Promotion & Communication).
7. Florals or leather?
Both. Nothing quite like rocking the girly florals with some bad boy leather.
8. Last compliment you were given?
‘that dress really suits you’
9. Long hair or healthy hair?
I think healthy hair is the best option ‘cause let’s face it long straggly damaged hair down to your bum isn't too attractive.
10. What makes you most happy?
Okay imma list this: finding a song that sums up my life in lyrics, drinking tea, beaches, bonfires, candlelight, cookery books, old photographs, live music, shopping, reading, pretty words, mini skirts and cardigans, vinyl records, living in my own little world, making people laugh, daisy chains, biro tattoos, cheese and onion crisps, walking barefoot, brick walls and faded graffiti, cider and black, being kissed, creating outfits, the smell of smoke, popping candy, autumn, sunshine.
11. Favorite music artist?
ARCTIC MONKEYS! I have loved Mr Turner and co. since I was eleven. They just have that distinct sound combined with poetic lyrics that I just find irresistible.
Now for Ashlie's questions:
1.What first inspired your blog?
I wanted a place to store all my outfits so I can look back at them in years to come. Plus I've always loved writing and being able to voice my opinions so I figured start a blog.
2.Tell us about your most prized possessions?
My iPod! Music is so important to me, it understands me when no one else does. All of my clothes! My camera. An amber ring my mum gave me, my two childhood teddy bears (well one is a rabbit) Original Bourbin and Bourbin and my cactus.
3.What's your favourite nail polish, ever?
Oh erm I think I will have to say Barry M Prickly Pear, just because it is such a pretty shade of lilac and my nails always feel clean and healthy when I wear it.
4.If you could walk in anyone's shoes for a day, who would it be?
Ooh let me just think. Okay so this might be cheating because they don’t wear shoes but I’m gonna say my dog Ruby. Just because I’ve always wanted to know what she’s thinking and that way I’d be able to find out!
5. Would you say you follow trends, or make up your own?
I wouldn't say I necessarily follow trends but if I do like something from a trend then I will make it my own.
6. What's your favourite high-st (or web-based) fashion or beauty brand?
At the moment it is probably ASOS, I might have become a little bit too addicted!
7. What's your most enjoyed thing about blogging?
I love all the inspiration I get from fellow bloggers plus I love communicating with bloggers
8. Jeans or dresses?
Dresses! I find that I suit dresses a lot more than jeans and that I can style them better plus I feel more feminine in a dress.
9. Tell us a random fact about yourself?
If I could have one superpower it would be the ability to pause time; just imagine being able to pause so you can have an extra snooze without running late or being able to pause to sneak away from awkward situations!
10. Long or short nails?
Short because my nails just snap if I grow with them plus I can't stand the sound of long nails scratching on things.
11. The beauty product you cannot live without?
Without a doubt foundation, I can’t step out of my house without it!
