I was very flattered to be nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Helen from beautifully superfluous! She's always so supportive and makes really helpful comments on my posts.
The Liebster Blog Tag is an award given by a blogger to other bloggers who are up-and-coming with less than 200 followers, which is a great way of saying that you think someone has a great blog and that you enjoy reading it.

HELEN'S 11 QUESTIONS ANSWERED...
1. Who is your beauty inspiration?
My beauty inspiration is Katy Perry - she's got beautiful big eyes and flawless skin. Her new range of lashes are gorgeous and girly.
2. Who is your fashion inspiration?
2. Who is your fashion inspiration?
Audrina Partridge is probably the person I feel most inspired by fashion wise so I take some of her style and mix it with other styles that Lauren Conrad and Fern Cotton wear.
3. What are your first beauty/fashion memories?
I always remember the first time I started wearing make up, it was my sisters Body Shop pressed powder and a Fudge Brownie lipstick from Rimmel. Fashion memories, I remember buying a long sleeved top from Miss Selfridge with money I'd earned from my first Saturday job - very proud moment!
4. Which subjects did you love/hate studying at school?
I used to love English, I'm still a huge bookworm and would love reading anything from Shakespeare to Poetry, although nowadays I'm more of a 50 Shades of Grey sort of girl! :)
I hated Maths, I couldn't get the hang of long division and fractions and I still struggle with that sort of thing now.
5. Which celebrity do you really want to slap and why?
Hmmmm, there are so many to choose from! I think Imogen Thomas is definitely high up on the list. I liked her when she was in Big Brother but having an affair with a married man really lowered my opinion of her (yes, him too of course!) and she's famous for doing basically nothing - bad role models for young girls generally!
6. Have you got any tattoos/piercings and if you have where and what are they?
I don't have any tattoos at all, although every now and then I wish I was brave enough but I'm scared I'll hate it and regret having it done. I have my tragus pierced on my right ear, its a small diamante stud. Years ago I had my belly button pierced but took it out a few years ago.
7. Which magazines do you religiously buy every month without fail?
I buy Heat nearly every month, I stopped buying magazines regularly as they were costing me a fortune but since I've been blogging I tend to use them for inspiration and keeping up to date with new products and trends. Look Magazine is probably my favourite at the moment.
8. What would you do if you were a boy for 24 hours?
If I were a boy for 24 hours - what wouldn't I do?? I'd definitely go into the boys changing rooms and have a perv at all the men! Next I'd listen in to lads conversations to see what they really talk about ;)
9. Can you describe your personality in five words?
Silly, fun, caring, loving and hyper.
10. Do you prefer silver or gold?
Definitely silver! I associate gold with my Mum and I think silver is a lot more modern!
11. What is your favourite time of year and why?
I love December, not because of all the presents I might get but because of all the twinkly lights, decorations and time with my family and friends. I've always love Christmas, it feels magical and exciting even though I'm in my twenties!
