Liebster Award

Liebster Award, Nomination, Blogger, Troves and Roses

So I've been nominated for the Liebster Award! I've seen people's posts on this circulating the blogosphere and then a few days ago the lovely Lenka from Lenka-Dot nominated me! Thank you so much to Lenka for the nomination and if you haven't already, go and check out her blog, it's a great one!

The rules for this are as follows:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you with a link back to his/her blog
2. Answer the questions asked by the nominator
3. Nominate 5-10 bloggers with under 500 followers
4. Create 10 questions for the nominees to answer

These are the questions from Lenka:

1. What is your favourite social media? Where are you the most active?

The answer to this one would have to be Instagram. I'm definitely the most active here, you'll normally find me stalking all the beauty hashtags. I've also found that it's a great way to find new blogs!

2. What´s your favourite stage of the day?

I'd like to say the morning but that would be somewhat of a stretch - I'm really not that much of a morning person. I'll say the evening. Evenings are cool.

3. Do you do your face makeup first or do you go straight to the eyes?

Face first, always.

4. Who is your blogger inspiration?

Definitely Vivianna from Vivianna Does Makeup, she's witty as anything and her reviews and recommendations are always on point.

5. Do you do research online before you buy something (makeup wise)?

I almost always do research before I purchase beauty products, especially if the makeup in question is of the high end variety - those can be some expensive mistakes!

6. What was your first makeup product?

I'm pretty sure some of my first makeup items were in a big stage-makeup-esque beauty kit, given to me by a friend of my dad's, much to his annoyance and my delight.

7. What are your latest addictions?

I'd say the Giambattista Valli MAC lipsticks. The packaging! Swoon. The actual product isn't half bad either! Also magenbrot, a type of cakey thing they're selling everywhere in Zurich at the moment because it's fair season. So yeah, lipstick and cake.

8. Do you fake tan?

I've had a few ventures into fake tan, almost all of which have ended disastrously for me. I really admire people who fake tan regularly, and whilst I would love to have a year-round glow, I'm far too lazy to make the effort.

9. What is the most precious thing in your makeup collection?

This is such a hard one. I wouldn't say there's one most precious item that springs to mind, but it'd probably be one of my eyeshadow palettes. Most likely the Urban Decay Naked 3 - that's a good 'un.

10. Would you ever consider posting beauty videos on youtube?

This is something that I've thought about in the past, especially since I've started blogging, because there are just some things that are much easier to communicate in video form than through writing. Having said that, I'm not sure I'd ever take the plunge, it requires so much planning and time and I've got plenty on my plate as it is with dissertation writing and keeping up with my blog schedule!

Thinking of my own 10 questions was quite the task! Here they are:

1. Why did you decide to start your blog?

2. What's your earliest makeup related memory?

3. What's your one holy grail product?

4. What's your favourite drugstore beauty brand?

5. What's your favourite high end beauty brand?

6. Lipgloss or lipstick?

7. Do you prefer summer or winter makeup looks?

8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

9. What's your worst beauty habit?

10. What's something you're looking forward to?

Right, onto my nominees. I nominate:

1. Ilia from Ilia's Cup of Tea

2. Charlotte from Charlotte's Road

3. Caroline from Iridescent Places

4. Kelsey from A Balancing Peach

5. Jody from Textbook Gorgeous
