Liebster Award

DAnRcLWXYAABjIX.jpgAs you can guess from the title I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award (Thanks to Vanessa for nominating me, as I’ve never taken part in anything like this before and it’s my first award). I think this is a really cool idea as I don’t really know many people in the blogging community yet, and there might be other people in the same boat.

Liebster Award Rules:

  1. Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you
  2. Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
  3. Ask your nominees 11 questions
  4. Let them know that you have nominated them

Vanessa’s Questions:

  1. Favourite memory?
  2. If you had to live somewhere else where would you live?
  3. What is your ultimate career goal?
  4. Favourite makeup brand?
  5. Are you in a relationship? If so quickly tell us about your other half.
  6. If you could pro any talent, what would it be?
  7. If you could be fluent in another language which would it be?
  8. Favourite TV series?
  9. If you could have dinner with any person alive or dead, famous or not who would it be and why?
  10. Positivity, tell us one thing you love about yourself!
  11. What is your ultimate goal in blogging?

My Answers:

  1. That’s a tough one, but I think I’d have to say either my 18th birthday because I went out for a meal with my family and my boyfriend and I spent the weekend with family and friends (getting drunk ofc), and that was really special. Or I’d say my couple times at Leeds fest or any other concert I’ve been to (I’ve been to a fair few), as there’s just something about a good mosh pit that gives me the best memories.
  2. Hmmm I think probably America as I’ve been to Florida a couple times and I’m in love with the theme parks and the food not gonna lie.
  3. *nervous laugh* I’m not really sure what I want to do, I’m studying English Lit and Spanish but that doesn’t really help me decide as I don’t know where I wanna go with that at all. Something to do with writing or singing or makeup would be awesome (I’m very indecisive if you couldn’t tell).
  4. (Oh god!) I feel like I buy so much from lots of different makeup brands but I think if you know me, you know I talk about Makeup Revolution all the damn time because they’re just so affordable for the quality of their products.
  5. I am! My boyfriend is called Rory and he’s 20. We met through friends and we’ve been dating for 17 months now (ikr). He’s super sweet, he’s a nerd like me and we have the same taste in music. Only thing we don’t agree on is his refusal to let me give him a glitter beard! :/
  6. I love to sing and I’ve always wanted to take that further, but I think in terms of other talents I’d love to get better at doing makeup as I love watching other people do it.
  7. I’m already quite fluent in Spanish and am learning Basque next year so I’d like to be fluent in that bc it’s kinda cool. Or maybe something like Korean.
  8. The Walking Dead hands down. It gets a bit meh from time to time but I’m obsessed with the zombie apocalypse and I’ll always love the show (and Rick Grimes).
  9. This is a question I’ve never been asked but I think I’d have to say like sophdoesnails? Because I love her videos, she seems super cool and we have a similar style.
  10. I’d probably say my fashion sense, like I’m no fashionista and all my clothes come from Primark and New Look if I’m lucky, but I’m really into grungey clothes rn and I’m loving it!
  11. I’m not sure I really have one, so I’d say my ultimate goal is to continue and maybe write more often because I enjoy it so much.

KIKO Mini Haul + Review

18716638_862537253894230_1301472577_n - Edited

When I went shopping in Meadowhall with my mum for a nice early birthday shopping spree the other week I went into the KIKO store for the first time ever. I decided to pick up a couple things to test out as I’d heard good things about them and there was a big sale on. The products I got were their Extra Sculpt Waterproof Mascara, their Smart Fast Dry Nail Lacquer in 007 and their Glitter Metal Nail Lacquer in 05 Blue Indigo. I’d been wanting to try out some KIKO stuff for a while, and I’m really glad I did!  Continue reading

Too Faced Sweet Peach: Hit or Miss?

I know you’re probably getting tired of me saying “I know I’m late to the party on this one”, but when it comes to the Sweet Peach palette, I really am late. Since it came out ages ago I’ve really wanted it, and I even did a couple posts about dupes and alternatives here , here and here. I think I’m gonna do a separate post properly comparing it to the main I Heart Makeup dupe because I now own both so I can give a better verdict. What I will tell you though is that I did notice a difference in quality between the two (which of course you would hope for for a Too Faced price). But anyway, let’s get onto the swatches and all that good stuff!

*Also new drinking game: drink everytime I say peach throughout the course of this post

Jeffree Star Unicorn Blood

 

2 - Edited

I’d had my eye on this lipstick since like the dawn of time and tbh I never really expected to get it at all. A couple of my friends are the greatest and they surprised me with it for my 19th the other week; I’ve been loving it ever since. I left the box at home when I came back to uni so I can’t take a picture of it, but I’m sure you’re all familiar with how unique it is.  Continue reading

L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara

18361621_851398895008066_1297228921_n - Edited

I was super excited when I saw L’Oreal reveal that this was gonna come out as I was instantly drawn in by the adorable pastel packaging. I wasn’t able to get it straight away until I decided to treat myself with the money I’d saved for Leeds fest, and I went for it despite the mixed reviews I saw. A lot of people didn’t like this mascara, but the Miss Manga Lashes one by them is my all-time favourite so I decided to give it a try!  Continue reading
