Liebster Awards

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I was nominated by Linda for the Liebster Awards! Check out her blog here it’s pretty cool. She’s from Ireland and her blog is about beauty and makeup as well. Linda’s favorite quote really stuck out to me, “if nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies.”

This definitely came as a surprise because I have such a new blog. It’s a really exciting experience to have another blogger reach out to me. Thank you so much for the nomination. I hope this post helps you get to know me more.

Describe your blog for any new readers (type/style/aims)
Being that my blog is new, it’s probably not obvious what to expect. Right now Beauty and Fashion are my focuses, expect DIY, tutorials, and reviews. I might expand later to Fitness and Lifestyle. We’ll see what takes in the future.

Where does your blogging inspiration come from?
My blog inspiration mostly comes from Instagram and Youtube. I see what other successful bloggers are doing and put my own twist on it. I try to incorporate what I enjoy with my blog. I’ve been blogging for a couple years now and it is my first venture out with a professional blog.

What are the biggest challenges you find with blogging?
Right now the biggest challenge with blogging is the start up. Crossing the “T’s” and dotting “I’s”  properly. Baby steps, it’ll pay off in the end. Being a young blog there are not that many other issues at the moment.

Your current fashion style or trend (monochrome/chic/casual/funky/comfy…..for example)
I’m more of a casual-comfortable person. Sometimes I like to spice things up and pull out one of my sexier outfits. Most of that side of my closet is my weekend or nightout wear.

Worst beauty habit
My worst beauty habit is leaving chipped nail polish on or not going in to get my nails touched up after it starts chipping. It definitely does not look chic, I need to get better at nail maintenance to say the least.

Faux Fur or Faux leather?
Seriously do I have to choose one? I could not live without my faux fur duvet or my leather jackets. Yes I said jackets, I have hobbies, promise.

MAC or Urban Decay?
Hmm..I’m going to have to go with MAC on this one. I’m more familiar with their products. MAC’s carbon eyeshadow is one of my favorites. Their skin care products smell amazing possibly comparable to fresh flowers. Maybe that’s taking it a little get the picture.

Night in or Night out?
Depends on the situation. I have had too many nights in the past couple months, I’m ready for a night out. Socialization? What’s that? I think I need a reminder and to get out from under this pile of college papers.

What Tv Shows could you just binge watch over & over again & never get sick of?
Say it with me, FRIENDS! Friends has a special place on my Netflix. All I have to do is sign in and it’s sitting there begging me to watch it. Twenty minute episodes are perfect for study breaks. Prison Break, The Vampire Diaries, and The Originals are all shows I love. I’ll binge watch them when I have time, but it is not very often.

What is your favourite Highstreet/ Drugstore makeup brand & why?
My favorite expensive make up brand right now is Anastasia Beverly Hills. I can not get enough of their luxurious single eyes shadows. I’m working on something involving a few of my favorite eyeshadows right now. It’ll be ready in April so don’t forget to check out my Youtube. For drugstore, I’m a fan of Revlon, mostly for their mascara, but it’s been a good while since I ventured out to buy makeup.

Favourite Book you recommend others to read?
Currently I’m fascinated with the Gameboard of Gods, Age of X Series. I’m in love with anything Richelle Mead. Remember that movie that was marketed as the vampire version of Mean Girls? Vampire Academy? Go read the series, I dare you. The epic love will have you cringe, cry and cry for more. A fantastic series with an epic love subplot. Oh also I even had the chance to meet Richelle at a book signing near Seattle!
