A Feature: The Liebster Award!


A really exciting post today. The lovely Annie and Chloe from twolittleowlsblog.wordpress.com nominated me for the Liebster Award which I am so pleased and grateful to be nominated so thank you very much girls, and it really is an amazing opportunity to find new blogs. I have been working on this post for a little while to make sure I am completely happy with it, so let's get into the questions...

1. How did you get into blogging/what made you decide to start blogging?
It's a beauty thing kind of happened by accident. I had been off work ill for 3 months and I had spent a lot of that time diving into the beauty world and was loving watching beauty related YouTube videos and reading lots of beauty blogs and I got inspired to create my own as it was something I loved to talk about and learn more about, and I am still enjoying every second.

2. When did you start your blog?
September was the official start to all things beauty which then in February changed over to my very own website it's a beauty thing.

3. Would you rather cook or go out for a meal?
Definitely go out for a meal. I'm a messy cook.

4. What is your favourite makeup brand?
L'Oreal win this by miles. Nothing from this brand disappoints me. 

5. What is your favourite season and why?
Definitely Spring because there's so many pretty flowers, get to eat lots of chocolate and not feel guilty about it, the sun comes out and everything is either pastel or bright colours and I just love it.

6. What is your favourite food/meal?
Lasagne. Every time I go out for a meal I get lasagne. Creme eggs and mint matchmakers are my favourite food along with chocolate chip muffins, I'm addicted, it's becoming a real problem.

7. If you won the lottery what would you buy/do first?
I owe my dad a fair bit of money so first thing would be to pay him plus interest. Then a huge shopping spree with my best friend and my mum, and then probably move out into my own place.

8. What is your favourite film?
Finding Nemo and Big Daddy. Ooh and The Hunger Games.

9. Do you prefer online shopping or going into the shop yourself?
Definitely online shopping. Another obsession that is a real problem. 

10. What is the perfect holiday destination?
The states, then Australia.

11. What is your favourite book?
The Hunger Games and The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

...Now for the random facts about me...

1. I am naturally a red head.
Yes I know, you don't need to keep reminding me when you see a glimpse of my roots.

2. I have a beautiful Jack Russell called Darcy.
She is actually a miniature, short leg, long haired, Bedlington Hound, Jack Russell Cross, and my brother has her sister Izzie. 

3. I have a condition called fibromyalgia.
Which is why I have to use crutches often, don't get more than a couple hours sleep a night and on strong pain killers. 

4. I have two beautiful Twin God Daughters and a God Son.
Called Lily, Donna and David and I miss and love them so much. 

5. I am obsessed with scary films. 
Especially any with zombies, disease outbreaks or supernatural/ghost/paranormal/jumpy as s**t kind of movies.

6. I am ridiculously organised.
I make lists every day, my makeup collection is ridiculously organised and tidy, but my wardrobe is completely the opposite because I have so many clothes and not enough space.

7. Everyone is scared of my driving.
I have terrible road rage and don't indicate every time I should.

8. I used to drink a 2 litre bottle of squash every week.
Now even the smell of the stuff makes me feel queasy.

9. I get called "Big Soph" at work.
By the tallest guy there, who I then call "Little Nash" he plays American football and could squish me in a second.  

10. My best friend Dani and I often get mistaken as sisters/twins.
Even by our own mothers,

11. I hate feathers.
They gross me out, to feel and see and eurgh I just don't like them. Anyone else the same?
