The New Liebster Award

I was recently nominated by the lovely Lauren from An Impatient Scottish Girl to do complete this new LIEBSTER AWARD, which is much better in my opinion compared to the original one. Lauren is a sweetheart and she said the cutest things about me and my blog, so thank you very much for your kind words! If you haven't already checked her out give her blog a good read, you won't regret it!

So here it goes… Starting off with the instructions first:
1. Get nominated
2. Link back the girl/guy who nominated you
3. Do the questions
4. Nominate 5-20 people to do the questions


1. What are your top 3 bloggers and why?

There's so many bloggers that I read on a daily basis and have been since I was first introduced to the blogging world (before I even had the courage to start writing my own). Then there's all the lovely new blogs I have fallen in love with since starting up my own, so this is a really tough question. But I think I will stick to the ones I discovered first which have to be: LILY PEBBLES, VIVIANNA DOES MAKEUP & ESSIE BUTTON.

2. What drives you?

I sat in front of my laptop for quite a while before I could think of an answer to this. I guess I am driven by the passion that I have recently discover towards the beauty world & blogging. Not letting go of that passion and continuing to discover myself are my main goals. Also being a good mother and a good partner have got to be part of what drives me in life.

3. What little thing makes you happy?

Anything from spending time with loved ones, to my daughter Ellie just being around me, to buying a new beauty products, to having a cup of tea made for me, to gaining a new blog follower, make me happy.

4. What is your dream job/personal goal?

I still haven't quite fully figured that one to yet but I think as long as I continue to stay in the beauty world and have my blog grow more and more each day, I will be content and hope that one day it will all fall into place.

5. Do you have a favourite food?

All foods are my favourite food really haha! I am not fussy or picky at all. I thoroughly enjoy Italian foods and I have a weak bone for baked goods and desserts.

6. What is your favourite beauty brand? (makeup or facial care, or hair etc)

I really think it's totally unfair to pick just one because brands are unique in their own way for different reasons so I will name a few here: MAC, Urban Decay, Rimmel, Revlon & The Body Shop.

7. Favourite clothes shop?

Usually on the high street and it changes within the year as it depends on what clothes they have in store on offering. I like River Island, H&M, Zara & New Look quite a lot.

8. What would be your spirit animal and why?

I had no idea how to answer this questions so I went ahead and did a quiz online which chose my spirit animal for me. The result was a bear who is the compass of love, apparently…

9. Why did you start blogging?

After a  year of doubting myself over actually being able to write a blog I decided to just go ahead and do it. What did I have to loose after all… I guess the move over to London also gave me the last push that I needed because I didn't want to loose that bit of myself that I had found when I did the makeup course in Dublin and when I realised that working in the beauty industry in some form or another was what I wanted to do. 

10. Have you changed much over the last year?

I have gained so much confidence in myself and in who I am over the last two years actually. Becoming a mother changed me immensely and gave me a new found purpose in life. Now blogging has added to that purpose and has given me more passion and confidence then I would had ever thought.

11. If you could star in a TV series based on your life, what would it be? (sitcom, drama etc)

Oh god I have no idea but I know it would be something with lots of drama and heartache but with a happy ending. My life  so far hasn't always been the easiest or happiest, but I can finally say I am at my happiest, so I will strive to stay this way and continue to work on it everyday.

So this got a lot deeper than I thought it would be in the end but a little bit of self therapy can do no harm I guess. Anyway I would like to nominate the following bloggers and anyone that would be interested in doing this really:

Siham from Noirette Diaries
Karen from Style Sunrise
Dagmara from Mummy's Beauty Corner
Jordan from Jordan Alice
Shanna from My Curves and Lashes

Hope you girls enjoy completing this if you haven't already!
