The Liebster Award.

I have been nominated by the lovely raeraedaly to take part in the Liebster Award; a big thank-you to you darling!

Starting a blog is both exciting and scary and this is an absolutely wonderful opportunity to discover the up and coming and support your fellow bloggers in the blogosphere community. Plus, who doesn’t love a good tag!

So, here are the rules:

Link back to the wonderful person that nominated you

Answer the 11 questions given to you by the person who nominated you for the award

Nominate 11 blogs/bloggers who themselves have 200 or less followers.

Think up 11 different questions for the people you are nominating to answer.

Then you need to notify your nominees so that they know and can answer and join in!

1.What are you really, really good at?

Job interviews. It may sound strange, but I really am.

That’s not to say that I don’t get scared or feel like I’m about to vom right before going in, because I do, but it’s these nerves that I absolutely thrive upon.

2.What is your favourite time of the year?

Without a doubt, it’s New Years Eve. There is something about that time of year, where I’m still feeling jolly from Santa’s visit and planning for the year ahead. I love spending NYE with my best friends, most of whom live all over the country and come home the holidays, so it’s an opportunity for us to come together, reflect on the year just had and share our ambitions and things we’re looking forward to for the year ahead.

3.Favorite high street store?

Witchery is my absolutely favourite (see my recent post Animal Instinct to find out why). But I also love Topshop, H&M and Portmans.

4.Favorite beauty product of all time?

The Porefessional and Hoola by Benefit. In fact everything by Benefit is wonderful. It’s fair priced, high quality, varied in range and has gorgeous, unique packaging! I always look forward to Christmas time when they bring out their Christmas gift packs! I have a habit of approaching the gift packs the way I approach a block of chocolate with the boyfriend; one for you, two for me…

5.Who inspires you? 

My sister inspires me because of her free spirit, carefree, down to earth attitude. She approaches life full of wanderlust and love and it’s amazing to watch her grow into the beautiful, fulfilled woman she has become.

6.What is your favourite movie?

This is hard! I’ve thought long and hard and have narrowed it down to the three movies I have watched the most, can narrate with the plot and enjoy watching the same as I did the first time: Never Been Kissed (who doesn’t love Drew Barrymore?), Dirty Dancing (ummmm, Patrick Swayze? Babe!) and Pitch Perfect (I love a good musical probably more than your average, and this movie does it for me in all the right places)

7.Your Favourite beauty brand?

Benefit and Revlon.

8.Why did you start blogging?

Mainly to meet new people from all over the world and interact with people who share common interests to me. I spend a lot of time talking life, fashion, and love with my friends and family and saw this as an opportunity to share my passions and dreams in a different space. There’s something so wonderful about the blogging community, and I look forward to growing my blog, learning from others and sharing what I love.

9.What is your favourite post that you’ve written?

The Beginning. This is my very first post, and what started it all. One day I’ll look back to my first post and smile.

10.What makes you smile when you’re having a bad day?

Music. I have a varied taste in music and love everything from Ed Sheeran to Disney tunes. What I find myself listening to most is Angus and Julia Stone and Becky CJ. Becky CJ is a singer/songwriter from the UK whose voice gives my shivers every time I hear it. She seems so sweet and down to earth in her YouTube videos and I smile each and every time I hear her voice. Check her out here:

11.What is your favourite ever lipstick shade?

My favourite lip product is actually a lip stain. It’s the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 030 Smitten Eprise.

For you to answer…

What’s your favourite thing about your blog?

If you could go back in time to a past time in your life, when would that be and why?

How would you describe your style?

Who or what is your greatest love?

What is your favourite meal?

Do you prefer shopping in store or online?

Where do you draw your inspiration from?

What are your career goals?

What is your favourite fragrance?

What is your go-to, never fail outfit?

What is your favourite quote?

(I apologise If I have nominated you and your blog has more than 200 followers; please don’t be offended! If you’re blog didn’t have a subscriber count, I nominated you because I like your blog!)

    Hi Catriona,
    Thank-you for the feedback 😙
    In relation to tips for approaching job interviews, my biggest tip is to be prepared. Most job interviews will follow a similar structure so have a look online at some example questions you may be asked and then actually sit and write down how you would answer that question. Get your friends or family to practice with you so you get the feel for answering these types of questions. Plan your outfit a few days before, if you look good, you will feel confident and this will show!
    Always prepare a few questions you’d like to ask at the end, this shows your interest in the company/culture/manager/position 🙂
    Shake their hand at the start and end, look them in the eye and BE YOUR LOVELY SELF 🙂
    Good luck! Xx
