The Beautiful Blogger Award

So I just got tagged by the wonderful Bronagh from  Bronaghs Blog. Basically she got tagged by 2 other bloggers to do this tag and the rules are slightly different in both!

So, i’ll follow the rules from only one … Just to make this a bit less complicated!

1) State the name of the blogger who nominated you.
2) Answer the questions you were given.
3) List 10 random facts about yourself.
4) Nominate 5 people whose blog is about beauty or fashion.
5) Make 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

10 Random Facts about myself

1. I want to be a primary school teacher when I grow up

2. I bake the best cookies that you will ever taste (If I do say so myself)

3. I forever wish to have long hair and each time I get close to having it, I cut it short?!

4. I can’t walk in heals. At all.

5. The Harry Potter books are my favourite books to read

6. There’s one piece of jewelry that I wear everyday, a necklace. It’s the Ying from Ying & yang. My boyfriend wears the Yang. (Yes how cute and how cheesy)

7. I prefer Victoria sponge to Chocolate cake

8. Nothing makes me happier than having a huge round mug of tea/coffee

9. My eyebrows will never match.

10. I looooooove olives & Pickles

Okay, just saying, ‘random facts’ about myself are so difficult to think of!

So, my questions are:

1) What is one beauty product you couldn’t live without?

Mascara is 100% My makeup essential. My current favourite is Maybelline’s Big Eyes mascara. This is the one beauty product that I can’t live without because it can also be used as a gel eyeliner if you use a liner brush.

2) What are your night in essentials?

Night in essentials? Hmm well if this is about food i’d say I love popcorn and cola, if this is about makeup honestly, if i’m not going out during the day I don’t really wear makeup because I hate having to take it off at night time!

3) If you were stuck on a desert Island, what three items would you bring with you?

Wow i’m smart. I would bring fruit plants, a water purifier & my bed hahaha.

4) What are your make-up bag essentials?

Makeup Revolution’s concealer, Rimmel Match perfection foundation, Natural Collection Blushers, Soap & Glory Solar Powder bronzer, Seventeen Perk & Paint Eyeliner and lastly, a new find of mine, Newlook’s lipstick in deep pink.

5) What made you begin blogging?

Well honestly, I kinda wanted to do youtube videos but was too self-conscious/ scared of people I know seeing them? So, I picked a site that I hadn’t heard of, to talk about beauty things because I love watching/reading what others have to say, so I thought maybe others might want to read what I have to say! 🙂

6) What do you love most about blogging?

Honestly, just knowing that even one person has read what I’ve written and liked it!

7) What is your favorite beauty brand?

sighhhhhhh. I have lots of Maybelline products that I love and I have a few of Soap & Glory products that have never failed me!

8)What is your favourite outfit to wear?

Since about December I have LOVED wearing dresses! Skater dresses with tights are my favourites! 🙂

9) What was your first ever beauty buy?

Clear mascara & Clear Lipgloss from the brand 2true when I was in Birmingham!

10) What is your favourite beauty hack?

A while ago I was really into beauty hacks and I have used them so much daily, so I don’t even see them as ‘hacks’ anymore, if that makes sense? I would use lipsticks as cream blushers, mascaras as eyeliners, eyeshadows as liners etc etc. My favourite hack would be by patting my lipstick dry with a tissue to turn it into a stain. 🙂

So the 5 people I nominate are:

Ravishing Roses

Sisterhood of the world award

Good morning/afternoon/evening guys! I just got nominated by the lovely ashleylianne for the sisterhood of the world award! I think this is such a sweet idea/ award! Basically the idea is I got 10 questions for me to answer & when i’m finished I will ask 10 questions and tag/nominate a few bloggers that i’d like to answer them! So, let’s get on with it!

1 – Favourite author?

JK Rowling comes to mind instantly! I love her Harry Potter novels (I’m actually reading the half blood prince right now!) But, I have recently really started to enjoy the novels that Holly Smale has been writing! Louise Rennison is another favourite! I love girly books!
2 – Which song/artist did you listen to last?

Marroon 5 – Sugar
3 – Can you cook/bake? If so, what’s your ‘signature dish’?

I am an amazing baker ( If I do Say So Myself!!) I make the best cupcakes and cookies that you will ever eat! I can do nice brownies too! As for cooking I’d say i’m pretty average for an-almost-18-year-old!

 
4 – Where is your favourite place to socialise, why? (bar, coffee shop etc)

Honestly, there’s no place like home! I love home comforts! You can have tea/coffee whenever you want, you can have the tv on, you can listen to music etc etc etc. If not at either my home or my friend’s home, I do love costa!
5 – Who would you want to attend your dream dinner party?

Interesting question! I don’t really have any celebrities that I obsess over honestly? I’d say all the family members that I never had the chance to meet! I know that’s not the typical answer that the majority of people would say, but hey ho!
6 – Ideal holiday destination?

I love Lanzarote but I have always wanted to go to Canada/ America!
7 – Favourite YouTuber, why?

I love Essie Button! I just think she’s so down to earth and relatable! https://www.youtube.com/user/essiebutton
8 – If you could only own 5 items for the rest of your life, what would they be?

Awhhh ‘items’ is too vague! you need the essentials like a knife and a fork, you need the communication like your laptop, your phone and for makeup mascara and foundation! (Yes I am this difficult.)
9 – Who do you admire most in life?

Here we are again with admiring… I admire a lot of people in my life. I don’t really look up to any celebs or anything? I really admire my aunts, my parents, doctors etc. Wouldn’t be able to name just one!
10 – What was the last lie you told?

Probably that I would be doing coursework today… HMMM…

So that’s all my questions answered! Now for the questions i’d like to ask!

1- What’s your favorite food?

2- What’s your favorite season?

3- If this was your last day on Earth, what would you be doing?

4- If you could have dinner with any person, who would it be?

5- What’s your favorite brand of chocolate?

6- What’s your favorite drugstore product?

Get to know me tag

Just saw this tag on Beyoutiful beauty’s blog (http://beyoutifulbeauty.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/get-to-know-me-tag/)and thought it was pretty cool, so i’m going to do it for myself! 🙂

1.Is your hair naturally curly or straight?

Naturally goes very curly and sometimes a lil bit frizzy *sobsob* 

2.Do you wear the same style every day, or do you change it? 

Regarding my hair style, I change it basically every day.. I’d wear it curly or straight or wavy or up… Mixin’ it up a lil! 🙂

For everyday makeup it’d be about 5-10 minutes, for going out-out, about 20!

5.What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Face… i’d usually put the foundation/bbcream all over my face- eyes included. 

6.How often do you wear false eyelashes? 

Never actually worn them… The idea of putting glue around my eyes is a baaaaaad idea considering how clumsy I am. 

7.Do you do a full face of makeup every day?

Naaaaaaah… I am yet to find a foundation that matches my skin tone and isn’t too cakey, so until then…

8.Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?

Yes & no! I wear it when i’m in the mood for it! 🙂

One makeup and one skincare… Seriously, I’m a cheap skate!

Makeup – mac paintpot 

Skincare – Clinique cleanser

Hahaha. I have 1 handbag… I have 1 mascara and 1 lipbalm in it. Don’t really like handbags tbh!

Right handed

13.How tall are you?

About 5’4…

14.How many pets do you have?

1. I loveeee my pet dog, Tess!

15.How do you blog? 

…Um? I like tags… hence me doing one right now and i like doing my own lil reviews on products that i like/don’t like because i like reading about them! 🙂 I also really enjoyed doing the makeup-look-of-the-day! 🙂

Do you read comments posted on blogs? 

Yep! 

How did you come up with your blog name?

Wanted it to have the word ‘makeup’ in it somewhere, but yeah i don’t think it’ll be the final name for my blog, i’ll come up with better eventually! 🙂

What kind of camera do you use for your photographs?

Either my phone camera or my fujifilm camera… Getting a canon at some point during the Summer though! 🙂

What’s your favourite colour? 

GREEN. I love green! 🙂
