The Liebster Blog Award

11 Facts about me

1. I love Mrs Brown's Boys. Buster is my favourite character.

2. I can't sleep on a night if I've seen a spider or a fly in my room.

3. I always check Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr & Instagram before I go to bed.
4. I cried whilst watching The Host.
5. White chocolate gives me heart burn.
6. I love googling things and learning something new.
7. I want to move house, but I don't want to. If you understand.
8. I love game shows like The Chase, Millionaire and In It To Win It.
9. I always smell the candles when I'm in Asda.
10. I've only ever watched one (technically two) movies in a different language 
and that was Ip Man (and Ip Man 2).
11. I sometimes wish I was a bloke, so that I wouldn't have to worry about randomly getting period pains and having to shave.

My 11 questions from Maxine

1. What beauty thing are you rubbish at?
Exfoliating. I only just started exfoliating my legs the other day and it felt soooo good after shaving, so smooth. What have I been missing? (Any body scrub recs?)

2. What beauty/fashion mistakes irritate you on others?

Beauty wise when people get a tan that is five shades darker than their actual skin tone. I prefer something to look natural. Fashion wise, people wearing leggings as trousers. If you've got a long top over them then yes, but I don't want to see your knickers poking through.

3. Lipstick or mascara?
Mascara. I barely wear lipstick and I need mascara otherwise I'd have ombre'd lashes (ginge at the root, black on the ends).

4. What age did you start wearing makeup?
I messed around with it when I was 11 and hung around with my cousins but I only properly started wearing it and taking it seriously when I was 16 and started college.

5. What made you start blogging?
I started googling reviews and came across Bubz Beauty and got obsessed with her videos. I started reading her blog and just thought, 'why not make my own?' It went from there really...

6. Would you ever venture into the youtube side of things, if you haven't already?
I tried venturing over to the video side of blogging, but I'm not sure I'll carry it on. If I had the tools to do it then maybe, but my camera's rubbish and the quality stinks. But, I don't know....maybe.

7.Would you rather have 'perfect' hair or skin?
Skin. I can always pin my hair up, but I can't really do much more than add make-up with my skin.

8. If you could visit space, would you?
Uhm.....I don't like sharing a caravan with people, so I don't know how I'd feel about going into space.

9. Are you a dog or cat person?
Definitely a dog person. Cat's scare me. One minute you can be stroking them, the next they're clawing your eyes out. 

10. What was the last book you read that you just couldn't physically put down?
Perks of Being a Wallflower. Usually I take about a month to finish a book, but I finished that within a week. It's a great book.

11. What tips would you give to other bloggers? 
Be yourself. A lot of bloggers get caught up comparing themselves to other 'popular' bloggers, but you've got to remember that it's your blog, do what you want to do. Enjoy what others are doing, but do your own thing.
