Blog Award!!


I'm really honoured (and gobsmacked) to have been tagged for the Liebster Blog Award by the lovely bloggers - Claire at Another New Day, Lilla at Lilla Loves and Jenni from Jenni My Style (so sorry to Jenni, I know it was a few weeks ago that you tagged me - better late than never I suppose!). Thankyou girls!

The Liebster Blog award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers and the meaning of the german word 'Liebster' is 'sweetest/ kindest'!  It's a lovely bit of recognition and support to keep on blogging!

So apparently I have to answer the 11 questions set by 'tagger', I'm going to answer Claire's 11 if that's ok since I really don't think anyone wants to sit through 33 answers! I then have to nominate another 11 fab blogs and set them 11 questions!

So my answers to Claire's questions:-

1. Why did you start blogging?

I suppose I felt like I needed a creative outlet, so this is my own space, a bit of an escape (and I can't see the bored look in my friends' eyes when I ramble on constantly about beauty and make-up products!).  

2. Are you an organised or chaotic person when it comes to blogging?

Organised in theory, chaotic in pracise!

3. Do you plan your posts well in advance or go with the flow?

A bit of both I suppose, if something comes to me I'll just do it there and then!

4. Who are your Blog crushes?

I love Beauty in the Mirror, 30 Something Mel and Flutter and Sparkle. Lovely blogs by lovely ladies! 

5. What is the main theme/themes of your blog and why did you choose these in particular?

Beauty and make-up - you could say a bit of an obsession, music - moves me and food - love it to bits! 

6. Where is your favourite holiday destination?

Must be the South of France, we've been for the last few years! 

7. What is your favourite chill out music track?

Hard one this! There are many, however I do love George Benson - On Broadway  a lot!

8. What is your favourite well known saying or quote?

'Sorry I'm late...' I always try to cram too much in beforehand and end up racing to my destination late and full of apologies! 

9. What is your favourite thing to do to switch off and relax?

Apart from blogging ;) a bit of wine and spotify or a good night out!

10. Do you find it hard to turn off from blogging/twitter/facebook/instagram etc to make quality time for family?

Yes, bad I know, I'm often to be found with my laptop on my knee! 

11. To blog or not to blog - would you recommend it to a friend?!

Yes I would recommend if you have something you are passionate about, it's a good way to get it off your chest (if you get my drift!).

1  BeautyandtheBooks
2  Eat.Play.Shop.Love
