The Liebster Award

Recently, I was excited to find out that I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Lauren (Tea & Post), who has a lovely blog. You guys should definitely go check it out! (Thanks so much for the nomination!)

What is the Liebster Award? The award is one where bloggers nominate each other, who have less than 200 followers, for this award. It is a really good way to promote smaller blogs. If you want to learn more about the awards origins, click here

These are the rules:
1. You must link back to the person who nominated you
2. You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you
3. You must pick 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to be nominated for the award
4. You must come up with 11 questions for you nominees to answer
5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees

These are my answers to the questions I was given:

1. What made you decide to start blogging?
I have always loved fashion and beauty, and when I started reading more personal blogs, particularly Zoella, instead of blogs like Who What Wear (which I love but it doesn't feel personal) I realized that writing a blog was something that I could actually do without actually working in the fashion industry but just as a lover of pretty things. 

2. What are your favourite types of posts to read?
I love reading hauls, beauty reviews, and tags. I feel like the tags are a lot more personal, which I definitely like in a blog.

3. What's your favourite cosmetic brand?
Right now, I'm loving BareMinerals' face products (especially their foundation and face primer) and LUSH (they make natural products, which smell good, and some look good enough to eat!)

4. Who is your favourite blogger/YouTuber?
I like so many, but I would say that Zoella and The Persian Babe are definitely two of my favorites!

5. What beauty product could you not live without?
Really pigmented lip balm. My lips get very dry so it's good for moisturizing but it still gives a pretty color and lipstick affect. 

6. What is your favourite book?
Pride and Prejudice. When I start reading it, I can't stop!

7. What are your top three favourite high street shops?
Topshop, Acne, and Mulberry (... And Louis Vuitton and Self Ridges and Harrods...I just love them all and wish I had enough money to shop at them all!)

8. If you could have dinner with three people, alive or dead, who would you pick?
The three members of the lonely Island. It would be quite entertaining! Or Jackie O, Princess Di, and Kate Middleton Dutchess of Cambridge. All have/ had amazing style and held positions of extreme importance!

9. What is your favourite lipstick?
YSL Volupte sheer candy (basically, that entire YSL range!) The colors are gorgeous and so is the packaging!

10. If you could live anywhere else in the world where would you pick?
Stockholm, Sweden. It is so pretty and has a wonderful selection of places to shop (and is the birthplace of many fashion houses and musical artists!) Stockholm is just full of so much culture and history!

11. Favourite perfume at the moment?
Right now, I am really loving Marc Jacob's Honey perfume. It smells especially good after the smell has worn off a little bit, so it is a bit lighter. 

Here is the list of my nominees:

These blogs are so lovely. I definitely recomment that you guys go and check them out!

Here are my questions to the nominees:
1. If you had to choose between fashion and beauty, which would you choose?
2. What is you favorite store?
3. What is your favorite place to visit?
4. Who/ what band is you favorite music artist?
5. What is your go-to beauty product?
6. What is your favorite nail polish color?
7. Who is your favorite designer?
8. What is your favorite beauty brand?
9. If you could choose anyone to narrate your life, dead or alive, who would it be?
10. What is your favorite kind of lip product?
11. Who is your favorite blogger/ YouTube vlogger?

If you were nominated and decide to participate, let me know. I would love to read your post!
