The Liebster Award

Earlier this week I had a lovely surprise when Chloe nominated me for a Liebester Award! After a little bit of research I discovered that this is an award designed to help blogs with under 200 followers gain publicity and feel appreciated. Sometimes blogging can be a little bit disheartening, especially when you feel like noone is reading, so I was really touched by Chloe's nomination.

The Rules 

Write 11 facts about yourself.
Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
Create 11 new questions
Nominate 11 bloggers and tag them in your post 

So I'll start with my 11 facts:

  1. I love the scent of vanilla and coconut
  2. I've never dyed my hair
  3. I had an unhealthy obsession with Westlife until I was about 10 ~cringe~
  4. I'm a very fussy eater and would live off pizza if I could. In fact, sometimes I do.
  5. I have far too many "girl crushes"
  6. I can't tie my shoe laces, swim or ride a bike
  7. I don't drink or smoke
  8. I used to have a huge gap in my front teeth but thankfully it closed up
  9. I'm really messy
  10. I would happily watch The Big Bang Theory all day
  11. The thought of turning 20 next month terrifies me

Here are my answers to Chloe's questions:

What or who inspired you to start your blog?
I used to think that blogs were really pretentious but one evening I came across a blog called Teapot for One (now called A Brimful of Tasha). It was the first time I'd read a blog and I thought wow...this is actually really good. I'd loved make up for quite some time but never even thought about combining that with a blog before. I eventually started reading more beauty blogs and finally decided to make my own last year.

What is one beauty product that you couldn't live without?
I'm going to have to say Angel by MAC. It's been my go to lipstick for months and I absolutely love it. It's so pretty and girlie, goes with everything and has an awesome name - perfect!

Would you rather live without lipstick or nail polish?
Even though I have an infinite collection of nail polish I think I’d rather live without it. Keeping nails painted feels like such a chore and not many people tend to notice when you do make the effort so yeah.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
In terms of a career, I’m not really sure what I want to be doing. Maybe something beauty related but who knows? I definitely want to be married and have children. I’ve always wanted to be married and start a family quite young so I definitely want to be well on my way with that in 10 years time. 

I also want to be living in a different town. I’ve lived in the same town my whole life and I’d be disappointed if I still lived here, 10 years from now. 

Shoes or handbags?
It’s a toughie but I think I’m going to say handbags. I own so many pairs of shoes but I pretty much wear the same pair everyday

Do you have any unusual talents?
I can just about touch my nose with my tongue...does that count?

Favourite band/artist?
I try to avoid listening to music for various reasons but if I had to choose I think I’d pick Keri Hilson. I’ve been listening to a few of her older songs lately. My favourites are I Like, Got Your Back and Pretty Girl Rock.

Can you play any musical instruments, if so, what do you play and how long have you been playing it? If not, would you like to learn to play any?
It sounds typical but, I've always wanted to play the guitar and piano.

Do you collect anything?
Make up!

When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?
An artist...or a wwe wrestler.

Favourite book?
Besides the Bible it has to be the Confessions of a Shopaholic series. I absolutely love it!

I tag:

Here are your questions:

  1. Who is your fashion icon?
  2. What would be your ideal date?
  3. Are there any beauty skills you struggle with?
  4. If you were running late and could only do your hair OR your make up which would you choose?
  5. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
  6. What was your first high-end purchase?
  7. If you could instantly learn one skill, what would you learn?
  8. Favourite movie?
  9. What was your last beauty purchase?
  10. Favourite quote?
  11. Heels or flats?

Have fun ladies! xx



  1. hahaha westlife the band? i was obssesed with backstreet boys :3 lucky you i wish angel looked good on me but all it does is make me look like a zombie :P congrats on your award angi and thank you for nominating me <3

    1. Yeah Westlife the band >.< haha. I was so obsessed.
      Aw I can't imagine angel looking bad on you. I think you would suit Girl About Town for sure!


  2. HAHAA yeah I agree with Shayne, I was all like "wait...Westlife the artist(s)???"
    If you're terrified of turning 20, then....well...age is just a number? (Heck I'm turning 22 this year and I feel hella old)

    BLOGS? PRETENTIOUS??? It's ok, I used to think anyone who spent money on makeup was wasting their money since it was washed off on a daily basis. I am the biggest hypocrite here. ._.

    1. You're 22!?!? I literally never would have guessed haha. Fountain of youth.
      I definitely used to think blogs were pretentious because I thought it was just posh people talking about their travels etc lol! I used to think make up was super expensive too (I'm talking about drugstore here) so when someone mentioned the high end stuff I was like Q_Q gets worse haha x

    2. I'M 21 RIGHT NOW, IF THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LESS CHEATED??? (but othx 4 saying I look younger than I really am??? :D)
      I never saw blogs as pretentious though, more like an outlet for super glossy gorgeous photos :3
      Same. I used to think $36 for blush was highway robbery (for the Benefit blushes I so desperately wanted back then) but look at me now ._.''

    3. You are now the blush queen :P

  3. Wonderful post...I like your blog.^^
    Maybe follow each other on bloglovin?
    Let me know follow you then back.
    Lovely greets Nessa

  4. Awwww wow, thank you Angi :) my eyes glazed over with happy moisture when I read that bit about my blog. I'm really glad you liked it :'-) Thanks so much for nominating me, too. I've never been nominated for anything before! I will make a post about this either tonight or tomorrow. I'm not sure how I still have very little time despite dropping the teaching thing lol. What am I like?

    Your blog looks AMAZING by the way and I can finally follow you now lol-- could never work out how with your old layout. GFC isn't working for me right now, but I should be following on Bloglovin :) I also had a scroll through and saw some illustrations you put together and I think they're incredible. Very jealous of your talent. Keep it up :) x

    1. This comment means so much to me! You have no idea lol.
      I remember reading your post about how Uni wasn't how people made it out to be and it made me feel better because I was hating Uni. I only realized you had less than 200 followers when I wrote this post and I have no idea why that is. I love your blog!

      I'm glad u like the way my blog looks now lol. I'm still thinking of changing it all up soon, even changing the name but I'm happy with it for now (aka until I learn html lol). The illustrations seem to be quite popular lol! Wish I could be bothered to do more of them xx

      Will look out for your post on this :) xx

  5. Thanks you for the Nomination Angi, I enjoyed reading your answers to chole's questions!
    I will certainly do it, Hope you have a Lovely day my dear! Your blog is lovely btw keep it up! x
    Claudia xx

    1. Aw thank you Claudia!
      I love the photos you take for your blog. You're very talented xx
      I look forward to your post :)

  6. congrats on being nominated! i just came across your blog and i love it!I can't wait to read more! I also followed you on GFC!

    Also I'm new to blogging and i'm trying to meet some fellow bloggers so I'd love if you had some time if you could check out my blog and let me know what you think! it'd be greatly appreciated! And maybe even follow me on bloglovin or gfc if you like and want to!

    thanks so much xoxo Randa

    1. Thanks Randa :)
      I've followed you on both. Have you followed me on bloglovin? I'll be doing a giveaway when I reach 100 followers on there.

      Also I'm curious as to how you came across my blog lol? I always wonder how people find me haha xx

  7. Don't you worry, being 20 is no different then being 19. I still watch an unhealthy amount of big bang theory and modern family. ;) and girl crushes are unavoidable. Their are so many gorgeous women out there to just oggle at their sheer beauty. And good on ya for the not drinking and smoking. I'm in that very same boat. I've also never dyed my hair and am in love with the coconut/vanilla type scents. Just picked myself a few candles with those very scents! What a bunch of coinquedinks! I will never understand super clean people....are they even human? like really?
