The Liebster Award.

So yesterday I was nominated by Ami at http://beautylovesuk.blogspot.co.uk for the Liebster award. An award for bloggers with under 200 followers.
I wasn't 100% on what this was until about a week ago but now I get it so here it goes!

These are the rules:
-Share 11 random facts about yourself
-Answer the 11 questions given to you by
the person who nominated you for this award
-Nominate blogs with less than 200 followers
-Create 11 new questions
-No tag backs

So 11 random facts about me!
1- I'm a big fan of Action & Comedy films & my favourite film is the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
2- I've been a vegetarian for 7 years.
3- I listen to a massive variety of music... I can go from listening to something in the charts to Metallica haha
4- I LOVE tea! I basically only drink tea & water!
5- I've met Orlando Bloom, JLS (oh yes! haha) & some of the cast of Hollyoaks
6- I love tattoos! I only have one at the moment but plan on getting more.. I also design them.
7- I went to a YouMeAtSix gig once, missed the last train & had to get a taxi home which cost £120! EEK!
8- I'm half Scottish & very proud to be!
9- I've been with my boyfriend just over 2 & a half years.
10- I've wanted a German Shepherd for as long as I can remember but my mum wont let me, ha. I'll get one when I move out!
11- I like playing the boyfriends ps3 & have put in over 165 hours in Skyrim (I obviously have no life)

The answers to the questions that Ami asked me:
1. If you had to go back in time and give advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Not to worry so much of what people think, stick up for myself a bit more & too be more confident!
2. What is your guilty pleasure?
Food wise - Crisps For makeup - Lipgloss
3. Why did you start blogging?
I'd been wanting to start a blog for ages because I have a big interest in beauty & fashion. I never did, probably because of confidence issues but my boyfriend urged me onto do it & I'm glad he did as I'm really happy now! He also helped me come up with my name as I was stuck for ages! haha
4. What's the best opportunity you have gained from blogging?
I think the best opportunity would be the blogging community, it's really nice to have a group of people to talk to that you know have similar interests to you because outside of the blogging world, I don't really have anyone to talk about beauty & fashion things too, so that's great to be able to do that!
5. What is your favourite magazine?
I wouldn't really say I have a favourite but I do buy 'New' magazine regularly so I'd say that is at the moment :) (Do love a freebie though!)
6. What are your go-to beauty products?
Hmm, I'm guessing this means what I reach for the most? I'd say definitely eyeliner, concealer & mascara!
7. What reality television program do you wish you were part of?
That's a hard one haha, umm either Big brother or skating on ice.. because I'd love to be able to ice skate!
8. What celebrity do you style yourself upon?
I don't really style myself upon a celebrity, it's more I'll just wear what I think looks good haha, I should start taking more tips from celebrities though! I really like Jessie J's, Rihanna's & Hilary Duff. Also, been liking quite a lot of things that Selena Gomez has been wearing lately.
9. Makeup, shoes or bags? (If you had to pick just one)
Definitely Makeup! I do love the other two aswell though!
10. Other than blogging, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love spending time with my boyfriend, really into photography & I love design tattoos.. currently drawing up a half sleeve for my brother.
11. What do you hope your blog will be like in a years time?
I'm hoping it will be successful with people that enjoy reading it & can gain some sort of help or tips from it!
