All About | The Liebster Award

My post today is a little bit different to the usual review/favourites/products dominated post as I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Paige. If you're not already reading Paige's blog then please go over and check it out as she seems a really nice girl and writes really great posts! I will be answering Paige's questions in this post and then will create 11 new questions for 11 of my favourite bloggers! It will be a text heavy post but hopefully you'll find it interesting and find out a little bit more about moi! 

Rules of the Liebster Award
1. Give 11 random facts about yourself
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the tagger
3. Choose 11 bloggers with 300 followers or under to give the award and link them in your post
4. Create 11 new questions for your chosen bloggers to answer
5. Make sure the chosen bloggers are aware that you have selected them
6. Do not tag the person who tagged you

11 Random Facts: 
  • My favourite drink in the whole entire world is a Green Tea Frappuccino which they don't sell in the UK - I've only drunk them in Japan and China. 
  • My favourite thing to do is travel - car journeys, trains, planes - I love it all! 
  • I find pugs to be the cutest dogs ever. 
  • My favourite Harry Potter movie is the Half - Blood Prince. 
  • My favourite films are The Little Mermaid and Titanic. 
  • I'm hopefully going to be going to University in London in September to study Fashion Buying Management! 
  • I have four sisters. 
  • The one place I've always wanted to travel to is Italy (particularly Rome, Florence and Venice) 
  • I got an A* at Japanese GCSE. 
  • I have size 9 feet (boooooooo) 
  • My starsign is Taurus!  

Now here are Paige's questions for me to answer: 

1. What is your favourite beauty product?
Thanks Paige for this really tricky question! In general my favourite beauty product is something that gives me confidence. For this I would say either foundation or a bold lipstick so I choose a bold lip as it's a little bit more exciting. A few of my personal favourites include: MAC Vegas Volt, MAC Morange and Revlon Spiced Brandy!

2. What is the reason for why you started blogging?
I started blogging for a few reasons - I've always enjoyed reading fellow blogs and in depth reviews on products before I buy them. I decided to start my blog to be more involved in the blogging community which is so welcoming and friendly. Here I can express my thoughts and opinions, discuss them with others and get feedback of my own!

3. What is your favourite type of food? 
My favourite type of food is probably Italian. I love pizza, pasta, garlic bread etc. The reason why? Because it's so god damn tasty!

4.Smokey Eye or a Bright Lip? 
Hands down a bright lip - I'm such a noob when it comes to eye shadows so when I attempt a smokey eye it just looks like I've been punched in the face. 

5. What is your favourite season? 
My favourite season is Autumn: I love Autumn colours, I love layering up with scarves/coats/jumpers, I love Autumn scents and Autumn evenings! Autumn is just such a beautiful time of the year!

6. Biggest Pet Peeve? 
It's not really a pet peeve just something that bugs me and that I cannot do. It's quite odd but I can't stand it when people fill up say a Coca Cola bottle with water or squash or something? I just can't do it! I have to drink from the bottle that the product is, unless I'm filling a water bottle up with tap water - then that's ok. 

7. Countryside or in the City? 
I've lived in the country all my life but I know that I'm a city girl deep down. I'm hopefully moving to London in September and I just know city life will suit me better and satisfy me much more that the country does! The countryside really does have some breath taking views though - which I will miss!

8. Is the glass half empty or half full? 
Half full. 

9. Would you rather a night in or a night out? 
Definitely a night out!

10. If you could a dinner party with only five people of your choice, who would they be and why?
Leonardo DiCaprio (because he's GORGEOUS), Jude Law (because he's GORGEOUS), Prince Harry (because he's GORGEOUS), Florence Welch (because I love her music and everything about her basically) and Alexa Chung (I admire her style and reckon she'd be cool to hang out with) 

11. What is the most exciting thing you've ever done? 
Probably my travels, I'm 18 years old and have been fortunate to visit Japan, Russia, China, France and Greece. I love travelling and I guess standing on The Great Wall is pretty exciting!
