Liebster Award x

Hi there petals

The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German for sweetheart, dearest, beloved, kind, valued, cute, darling and endearing. Blogging is more than about the blog itself but about a community and connecting with loads of lovely people with similar interests. So this award helps other bloggers to get to know each other and join together. 
I wasn't too sure what this was at first but I think its a wonderful idea to help promote new blogs. 


Over the weekend I was nominated for the Liebster Award by not just one wonderful blogger but two! 
The Beautiful Suz @ http://www.bloosieslife.blogspot.co.uk/ and
The gorgeous Elinor @ http://littlered26.wordpress.com/

So I will split this post into two and answer their questions separately :)

Suz asked for:
  • Answer 11 random facts about yourself
  • You must link the person who nominated you.
  • You must answer the 10 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee
  •  You must pick 10 bloggers with under 200 followers to be nominated for the award. 
  • You must come up with 10 questions for your nominees to answer. 
  • You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees. 

11 random facts about me

1. My name is Chloe and I'm 20
2. I am obsessed with cats and dogs, and I talk to them like children
3. I love Pepsi Max
4. I sing very loud in the car all the time
5. Josh: The love of my life but looks like tin tin 
6. I am always dying my hair
7. I am a commercial analyst for an insurance company
8. My favourite colour is pink apparently
9. I have a tattoo which says 'When you wish upon a star your dreams come true'
10. I have over 70 pairs of shoes but probably only wear 10
11. I used to get on with boys a lot better than girls because I find them easier to talk to. But blogging has changed this, I have met some lovely girls and I love interacting and talking to all of you :)

Questions Suz asked

1. Bourbon cream or custard cream?
Bourbon all the way... It's weird I'm not so keen on chocolate itself but I love chocolate flavoured stuff like chocolate cake, ice cream, milkshakes etc. 

2. Camping or luxury hotel?
Without a doubt luxury hotel! I don't think I could ever go camping unless I was drunk. I absolutely hate spiders and bugs. 

3. What's your favourite word?
I'm not sure I have a favourite word but I have words I say loads. Most of them being swear words I cannot say on here but I noticed while blogging I say/type lovely, hun, gorgeous and beautiful a lot.

4. What smell do you like the most?
The smell of heat when you go on holiday to a hot country like Spain or Turkey. I love getting off the airplane to it because you know its going to be hot! I hope people know what I'm talking about. Occasionally I smell it here and I'm like "Ooh it smells like holiday!" haha I'm so weird!

5.What's the worst Christmas present you have ever received?
This probably sounds weird but I have never really received a Christmas present I didn't like. Maybe I am so predictable that everyone knows what to get me. Clothes and make-up please!

6. Which is your favourite season?
Definitely summer :) I get cold really easily and when everyone is hot I'm sitting there freezing. So I have to wear boring granny cardigans everyday, and in the winter I wear so many layers I can barely move. I love lazing around in the summer, sitting outside sunbathing with a nice Pimms. 

7. What Blogger/Blog inspired you to start up your own, if any?
I wouldn't say one blogger alone inspired me to blog but when I started getting into makeup I would Google online the best products. A lot of blogs would come up with product reviews and I found them so useful. I also watched loads of YouTube tutorials on how to do hair and makeup. Then one day I thought I want to share my opinions on the products I use, so I started my blog.

8. Laptop or desktop?
I broke my laptop so I only use my work desktop at the moment or my boyfriends laptop. But his is so old and slow I get so frustrated with it. I have a huge, fast computer at work with two screens so I find it so difficult now to only work on one screen. I get myself so confused lol. 

9. Bright colours or pastel colours?
 
Bright colours. Now that I think of it I don't think I have anything pastel coloured except nail varnish. I don't think I can pull them off

10. What is your ideal day off? 
Having a lovely lay in with boyfriend, then going for a nice day out somewhere like shopping, the zoo or a walk down the seafront. Then going out for dinner or the movies, and cuddling on the sofa... Cringe!

11. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
I could definitely eat a roast dinner everyday for the rest of my life. Its my favourite and I never get tired of them. I'm quite boring with my food and just like plain stuff. I never used to be fussy but as I got older I started to hate loads of different all foods.

Check out Suz's blog for some interesting reading and loads of great reviews


Elinor asked for: 
You must link the blogger who nominated you; you must answer the ten questions given to you by your nominee; you must choose ten bloggers, to be nominated for the award; you must then come up with ten questions you would like your nominees to answer.  Once you have done this you must go to their blogs and let your nominees know you have nominated them!

Questions Elinor asked 

1. If you could only wear 3 products makeup wise for the rest of your life, what would they be?
I would only wear eyeliner, mascara and foundation. I wouldn't find this too difficult because nearly everyday I only wear simple eye makeup because I just go to work and can't be bothered to spend ages on my makeup. I lie in bed with a tiny mirror and it takes me 2 minutes. I love sleep to much :) I wear foundation when I go out to cover my acne scars and beauty spots so this is important as well. 
2) Lip Balm, Lip Stick or Lip Gloss and why?
As much as I love lip balm, it would definitely be lipstick. I have found some gorgeous colours and I love how it stays on for hours. I find lipgloss doesn't last long and it's too sticky. I like to wear bright lipstick then kiss my boyfriend so it looks like he's wearing it hehe :)
3) Prince Harry, Harry Styles, David Dickinson (random yes) Snog, Marry, Avoid..
Snog - Harry Styles. Marry - Prince Harry. Avoid - David Dickinson!
4) What inspired you to start blogging?
(Same question as above) When I started getting into makeup I would Google online the best products. A lot of blogs would come up with product reviews and I found them so useful. I also watched loads of YouTube tutorials on how to do hair and makeup. Then one day I thought I want to share my opinions on the products I use, so I started my blog.
5) What’s your all time favourite book?
50 Shades of Grey... Haha jokes! As much as I loved it, my favourite books at the shopaholic ones by Sophie Kinsella. They are so funny and a great read. The Undomestic Goddess is also hilarious again by Sophie Kinsella. 
6) Where would you love to travel most in the world?
I want to travel all round America. I have never been but I think its such a vast country with so much going on and every state is completely different. I am hopefully going Florida and New York next year and I cannot wait. I want to do some serious shopping as everything is so cheap, so I will be spending some serious money. 
7) Favourite beauty brand (makeup, hair or skincare)
Oh no!!! Really I have to pick just one??? It would have to be Mac as their makeup is amazing and fantastic quality. Although if your on a budget Rimmel do really good makeup and nail varnishes which are ridiculously cheap. 
8) What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I enjoy buying loads of different products, trying them out and writing down every little thing about them. I love to hear people's comments and thoughts, and reading other product reviews on blogs. 
9) Who is your makeup inspiration?
I would say my favourite makeup YouTuber is Carli Bybel. I love her channels and all the looks she does are stunning. I wish I could do make up as good as she does, she makes it look so easy!
10) Where would you like to be in 5 years time?
Hopefully I will still find time to do my blog. I just want to carry on as I am but with loads more followers. I would also love to meet some of you bloggers in person.
