Liebster Award! || Nominated by Queen Sapphire

First up, a huge shout out to my gal Jess (@QueenSapphireUK) for nominating me! If you haven’t already I definitely recommend heading over to hear beautiful blog over at Queen Sapphire Lifestyle
The Liebster Award is an online exclusive award where bloggers nominate other blogs as a way of connecting and supporting the blogging community. It’s also a fantastic way to allow your readers to get to know you a little better!

Here are the questions I was asked along with my answers!

What is the one make up/skincare product you just can’t live without?

I think for this one I would have to say my Jeffree Star Skin Frost in shade “Peach Goddess”. In the past I had never really used highlight that much, and Peach Goddess is not only blinding, but beautiful and versatile. It’s a toss up between that one, and “King Tut”, which is a beautiful gold that I often use on my eyelids too!


If you could move anywhere and money wasn’t an issue, where would you move to and why?

As a British girl, I am always drawn to the California lifestyle that you see on the television. I am always drawn to the ocean, but I’m not sure if realistically California would suit me. Perhaps out in Malibu, far enough from the chaos of LA, or the South of France.

What is the best thing that has happened to you this year so far?

Probably the best thing to happen to me so far this year was receiving an unconditional offer to study an MA at the UEA. Also, starting this blog!

What is one thing about yourself that you wouldn’t change for the world?

This is a tough one! Probably my creativity. There’s times when I wish I could be a bit more practical and pragmatic, but I love being my creativity. With my imagination, I can be in a world instantly that doesn’t require Maths anyway!

How do you feel about the blogging community?

So far my experience has been great! I’ve only been doing this for about a month now, but I’ve bene lucky enough to be added into a group chat with some lovely girls. I know there are aspects of the blogging community, the beauty sphere especially that can be “bitchy” or full of drama, but so far i’ve stayed clear- & I’d like to keep it that way!

Do you have any beauty tips you think anyone reading this should know?

Hm… I think my main one would be EYEBROWS. Eyebrows shape and frame your entire face, they are important whether you want a natural look or full drag. Nothing draws attention to your eyes like a beautifully sculpted brow. Also, using baby oil to shave after reading an interview with Emma Watson has been life changing. 

You’re posting a beauty/fashion haul, what are the 5 brands we will definitely see in there?

Oh god, that’s tricky for a girl that wants everything from everywhere. Fashion is such a mixed bag for me as a plus girl, but the ones I can give you are probably ASOS, Bravissimo, Levis and (does Primark count as a brand!?).

As for make-up as I’m sure I’ve already mentioned I adore Jeffree Stars Velour Liquid Lips, I have a sizeable collection because I love the formula! Probably Armani, it’s my favourite treat yo’self boujee brand by far, and my past 3 perfumes have been from there. I also love me some Urban Decay shadows, and Lush bath bombs!!

What lead you to start your own blog and what has your experience been like so far?

I’ve gotten much more into beauty only in the past few years, actually. A few of my friends have suggested that I start a blog/YouTube on several occasions, because apparently I’m not bad with makeup. But, I was concerned that I wouldn’t fit in as I’m not typically “girly”, so put it off for a really long time. I only started about a month ago, on a whim, because I don’t know whether my husband will re-enlist into USAF or not (he’s American and I am British)- so I’m not sure where we will be living in 3 years time. I figured that in time, if I could even make the teensiest bit of money from being an influencer, that would be a viable career path that I could take with me wherever I go, and I could do from home without leaving any children we may have!

Do you like to cook? What is your favourite food of all time?

I love cooking, and I’m told I’m bloody good at it too! Hopefully I’ll get more organised and be able to post some recipes on here some day!! My favourite ever food is Chinese without a doubt. I love salt n pepper squid or chicken. It is to die for. 

Are you a money saver or a money thrower? Do you wait for the sales or something to be reduced or do you just buy things whenever?

It depends on the day, honestly. Being a student taught me how to save and to budget for sure, but sometimes when I feel sad or awful I definitely have my “Treat yo’self” days. (Yes that was a Parks and Rec reference, Donna is a queen ok?)

What would your dream home look like? What colours would we see, would there be themes throughout each room?

Ugh, I live for interior design. My dream home would probably be big, light and airy, with a lot of white and grey running through it to keep it feeling bright and peaceful. I love marble floors, big chandeliers and fresh cut flowers. I think I’d have a different colour accent for each room. But most of all, all i’ve ever wanted was to own a house with a swimming pool. I would probably never come inside again if that happened, though.

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed reading my answers!

  1. I have never felt so in tune with or refreshed with a blog as much as I have been with this post! Like, everything you said reminds me of ME! Haha Congrats on your nomination. I'm sure it feels so encouraging to know you are being understood by others on the same path. I, too, am just starting out in the blogosphere and have been struggling to learn this world. It helps to knownothers are right there in that same boat scooping out water with you. Keep it up, girl! And if you vet find yourself in Texas, hit me up for a lunch date!
