My Nomination For The Liebster Award

Victoria from has kindly nominated me for this award. If you haven’t read her blog yet, check it out now because it’s brilliant!

So here’s a little bit of information about the Liebster Award:

"The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 300 followers and the rules of the award is that the nominee must link back to whoever awarded them, write 11 random facts about themselves, answer the 11 questions from the award giver, and then nominate another 11 bloggers and make up 11 questions for them to answer. It's a great way for new and undiscovered bloggers to meet new people, get more followers and find some blogs that they want to follow."

Here goes....

11 random facts about me:
1. I am seriously addicted to tea.
2. I was women’s football captain at university.
3. I love most sports and am a huge Manchester United fan.
4. I share the same birthday as my sister- she is exactly 3 years younger than me.
5. I have OCD- I hate germs and I’m always cleaning/ applying antibacterial hand gel!
6. I have a BA and an MSc degree and am currently studying for a PhD.
7. I am a real history geek.
8. I love cooking.
9. I love Cheeky Vimtos (blue wkds are my downfall- I just can’t resist!).
10. I have a little cuddley puppet raccoon called Skunki that I’ve had since I was little and who still belongs in my bedroom.
11. I love Marmite- I have it on toast for breakfast everyday!

1. What is your greatest achievement?
Probably my degrees, getting a 2.1 at the University of Durham and then a Masters Distinction at the University of Manchester, I worked really hard on both.

2. If you could be anywhere on earth right now, where would it be?
Sunning it up on a beach in the Bahamas.

3. What is your most lusted after product?
Armani foundation.

4. If you could meet anyone, who would you meet?
Right now, it would probably be Mary Portas so that I could quiz her and get all her advice on retail and possibly starting up my own business.

5. What is your favourite brand and why?
Estee Lauder for skin care as the products are always so refreshing and nice smelling, they make my skin silky smooth and keep my spots at bay (sadly I can’t always afford it!) and Benefit and Urban Decay for makeup- I love how bold all their products are, they really make a statement.

6. Who is your role model?
This is a tough one... I’ve never really thought about it but, especially after the last year, I would have to say Clare Balding. She is a lovely woman, who has never compromised her identity or her personality to get to where she is. She’s refreshing honest and hard working, having overcome lots of obstacles to reach the top of a very male-dominated field.

7. What do you aspire to be in the future?
I would love to own my own fashion boutique or I would love to blog about makeup and get paid to do it!

8. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
I love writing and I love makeup- it’s basically like talking for me, but getting to talk to lots of people who are actually interested in the same things as me, and hearing their opinions back!

9. What is your favourite beauty product?
Tough one... either Armani loose powder, Benefit That Gal primer or the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks... too difficult to choose!

10. What is your favourite thing to watch on TV?
I love Sherlock (can’t wait for the new series!), Downton Abbey (although I’ve fallen out with it a bit at the moment after the shocking deaths of series 3) and I love comedy-news type programmes like Have I Got News For You.

11. Which Disney Princess would you be if you could and why?
Jasmin- she gets to ride a magic carpet, have a pet tiger and is the only one that seems to actually live a real princess lifestyle in a gorgeous palace!
