Liebster Award!

Hello lovelies! I am happy to announce that I've been nominated for the Liebster Award -- twice!! Thank you so much to the lovely Hayley Jachz and All Natural Diary for nominating me! This award is given to blogs with 200 followers or less. Here are the rules:

1. You must link back to the person who awarded you.
2. You must answer the 11 questions given by the nominee before you.
3. You pick 5-11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must tell your nominees they have been nominated by you.

Simple, right? Let's get started with the questions Hayley had for me!

1. What made you decide to start a blog?

I've loved makeup ever since I was 15 and my mom took me to CVS to start my collection of products. I've also always researched the products I bought using beauty blogs. Gradually, what was once used just as a reference point became entertainment for me, and as I got more and more involved in the beauty community on YouTube, Blogger, and Wordpress, I decided to join in the fun and contribute some of my own work.

2. Have you stuck to your New Years resolutions? What were they?

I didn't really have any New Years resolutions this year, which is strange for me. I knew I didn't tend to keep them, so my only wish for myself was to be happy and healthy, and so far I've achieved that.

3. What do you hope to be doing in 5 years time?

I'd love to be teaching at a university as a history professor, living with or married to someone special, and maybe start planning a family. :)

4. What are five beauty products you could not live without?

Hmmmm...my MAC concealer, because my undereyes are a nightmare in the morning, lol. Foundation, because I like to keep my dark marks and mild acne covered, lipstick because I love it, lip balm to keep away chapped lips, and my Clinique Three Step Skincare System because it keeps my skin feeling clean and healthy.

5. MIC or TOWIE?

Neither, since I've never watched those shows. :(

6. Favourite LUSH product?

Never tried Lush, but I really want to get their sugar lip treatment at some point.

7. What's your favourite quote?

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." -- Eleanor Roosevelt

8. Favorite time of the year?

Spring!!! ^_^

9.What's your favourite brand and why?

Gosh, this is SO hard! I buy from every brand I can, so it's hard to pick one that's great. I guess I would say MAC, since I've had far more hits than misses with them, and the quality of their stuff is GREAT for the price.

10. Would you rather only have a wardrobe full of winter or summer clothes?

Summer clothes, I could always layer them to get warm, or move to Florida, lol.

11.  If you could only wear one lipstick for the rest of your life what would it be?

It would be my Sephora brand lipstick in Courtesan, a beautiful red. You just can't go wrong with a good red lipstick!

And here are the questions All Natural Diary asked:

1. What is your holy grail skincare product you always go back to?

Hmm, probably my Clinique 3-Step Skincare System, because it works so well for my acne and I don't think I'm switching from it anytime soon. 

2. What is your holy grail makeup product?

My MAC Pro Longwear Foundation. It stays on through ANYTHING, and has beautiful coverage that still looks natural!

3. What is your worst beauty and/or fashion purchases?

Anything from CoverGirl other than their mascara. Their eyeshadows aren't as pigmented as I'd like, and their lip glosses and lipsticks aren't anything special, in my opinion.

4. Pick 3 beauty brands that you can’t live without.

Revlon, MAC, Urban Decay

5. If you could only bring 3 things to a deserted island for 1 year, what would they be?

My Benefit They're Real! Mascara, a red lipstick, and my NARS blush in Taos.

6. What is your favourite book? (Can be any genre!)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

7. What do you normally eat on a night at home?

Sushi!!! ^_^

8. What are your favourite healthy snacks?

Peanut butter on whole wheat toast, and Greek yogurt.

9. What is is your most frequently visited online shop?

Amazon, I live on there, lol. 

10. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Extrovert! I'm very talkative and love making friends! 

11. What do you love waking up to the most everyday? 

The smell of coffee.

Of course, I have some questions for my nominees (I only picked two, because so many of the people I wanted to nominate have already received the award!) So here they are!

1. What is your favorite Disney movie and why?
2. What poem has had the greatest impact on your life goals/morals?
3. What is the core reason that you have an interest in makeup?
4. What is your favorite song and why?
5. If you won the lottery, what super expensive beauty product would you buy first?
6. Did any particular blogger or YouTuber inspire you and your blog? If so, who was it?
