Liebster Award!

Hello my lovelies!
How are you all? I hope you are having a lovely weekend! This post is going to be on the Liebster Award!

I have been so lucky to have been nominated by these 16 beauties below! Thank you all so much! - Lex Robinson - Lily and Ella - Kiara Anne Catanzaro - Alessandra Du Maurier

I'm afraid I'm only going to answer questions from the top three blogs as a) this would be an extremely long blog post. b) some of the questions are the same or similar so there is no point in answering the same questions over and over again.
Please, do not be offended by this! If there are any questions you would like me to answer, just let me know!

The Official Rules Of The Liebster Award

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award and you choose to accept it, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:
1. thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
6. create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. list these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)
Questions from Lex Robinson.
1. Topshop or Urban Outfitters?
Not really keen on either to be honest, if I had to pick one then I would choose Top Shop because it's better priced than Urban Outfitters, however their sizes are a bit funny.

Anything by MAC. Have a seriously love for their products atm!

As I said above, I really am in love with MAC.

That would have to be Rimmel's Stay Matte powder.

Umm, I see myself still blogging! And also fresh out of Uni, ready to join the working world and also to still be with my wonderful boyfriend Mikolaj.

To be honest, if I really want something I'll save!

YESSS!! In the summer Mikolaj and I are planning to go to Poland to visit his family for a week and then we are going to travel to Prague in the Czech Republic and stay there for one or two nights, then we are going to be going to Budapest in Hungry for the Sziget Festival for one week!

Oh wow! Umm, it would have to be concealer as I could cover any blemishes.

I would say that Mikolaj has a great influence on me as I really care about how he feels and what he has to say! I also just want to be able to keep that beautiful smile on his face!

Questions from Laura Hunter
1)  Who is your favourite blog and why?
I really like Charlotte Hemingway's blog  because it is very informative, it is well presented and interesting to read.
2) Do you have any weird habbits, what?
Umm, only with the way I eat my food. For example, I have to nibble the chocolate off of a Kit Kat before I eat the rest of it...but I guess a lot of people do that so it's not that weird? I also have to carry hand sanitiser and anti bacterial wipes everywhere with me...I guess that's kinda weird?
3) If you could only shop in one place for clothes where would it be?
Probably New Look as it is fairly priced and they have some decent clothes in there.
4) Would you rather Disney or Pixar?
Pixar! Just because I love Despicable me and I have an obsession with the cute little minions!
5) If you could be someone from a film/TV series who would choose be and why?
I don't really wish to be anyone else really, although they do have a lot of money and fame etc they still have problems like anyone else.
6)How much do you spend on make up?
Depends really on how much money I have to spend! I recently went into Boots and spent £40! Although, I did have a £20 voucher. Normally it would be around £20 I guess?
7)  If your life was a musical what three songs would you pick?
Only three songs! That's hard!
1. Iggy Azalea - Work
2. Blondie - One Way Or Another
3. Jason Mraz - I'm yours

9)  What is your favourite beauty product?
Answered in the first set of questions!

At the moment I love Vosene Kids Detangler Spray
