New Layout and My First Ever Liebster Award!!


Hello all you pretty people…

Today is an exciting day as my new blog layout has just gone live!! I know I only changed it a few weeks ago but that was just a temporary style whilst I hunted for my dream design. I love how clean it is and how it shows the featured image! I really need to now step up my photography game so that it starts to match the theme and doesnt look as amatuer.

Not only this but the other day I was awarded the Liebster Award by the lovely Jess at Sunshine and Teacups! It’s taken me a few days to getting round to sharing it with you guys as I’ve been extremely busy with starting back at uni so apologies but I’m here now and ready.😘

How the award works:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Provide a link back to their page
  3. Copy & Paste the award to your blog
  4. Answer the questions set by the person who nominated you
  5. Nominate 5 blogs with less than 500 followers
  6. Leave a comment on their blog to inform them of their nomination

My questions:

Favourite lipstick of all time?

I tend to flick a lot between different lipsticks depending on how dry my lips are and the consistency I’m after but if I had to pick one (If you’ve read many of my posts I’m sure you’ll know) it would be my NARS – Cruising. Its such a gorgeous nude colour that can be worn in the day and night and I really like the look of it by itself on my lips which requires little effort at all!

How long have you had your blog?

I started my blog back in Febuary / beginning of March time. 7 months wow and I’ve loved every minute especially getting more involved with the community and other bloggers!

What is one thing on your bucket list?

My biggest thing is to go diving in the Great Barrier Reef with all the beautiful sea creatures! I’m going travelling this time next year and can’t wait to check it off my list!😍

What cleansers do you love at the moment?

This is a hard question because I am actually on the hunt for a new cleanser at the mo! Recently I’ve been neglecting my face and skincare routine and want to try and fix that… So I can’t really answer this. Help me out guys!! What should I try?!!

Who is your celebrity idol?

Carli Bybel😍😍😍 just wowwww, and Miley Cyrus for not letting the industry she was born into change who she really is 😌

How do you store your makeup?

Haha.. At the moment in old pots on shelving unit in my bedroom but I’m on the hunt for nice storage pots and bits that I can upgrade too. I just don’t want to buy any until I know exactly what I’m after!

What is a piece of advice you would give to someone getting into makeup?

Just watch videos on youtube if you are unsure of how you should be applying your makeup. Some techniques you won’t like and some you will think are genius so just keep trying new things and at some point you’ll be super happy with how to apply and wear your makeup!

Worst makeup fail?

Plucking my eyebrows thin and wearing nothing but fake eyelashes.. Wowwww was I mad? Looking back at photos from that era definitely make me cringe haha.

Favourite food?

Ummm this is a hard one as there are a few things that I really do loveeee.. but if I had to pick one it would be plain filet steak – and definitely rare. Oh mama 👌😍

Favourite TV programme?

Really loved Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives! Also really enjoying watching The Good Wife at the moment. Never really understood the hype with Friends (sorry guys!). I do enjoy watching crime and thriller seasons too!

I nominate:

The Girl in a Cocktail Dress

Pinky Promises

In The Love and Hate of Beauty

A Maple Girl
