I've been nominated for a Liebster Award!

I'm still very new to this whole blogging thing, so I was super excited when I saw a comment from the lovely Emily over at telling me that she'd nominated me for a Liebster award. Even though I'd seen it on other blogs before, I wasn't quite sure what it was all about, so I did a bit of reading up on the award and it's rules. Here's a brief overview if you are a bit clueless like me: Answer 11 questions that are given to you by your nominator, then create 11 questions of your own for your own nominees to answer, then nominate up to 11 bloggers who all have under 200 followers

So, here it is!

1) Is there one makeup item you could not live without?
I'm not completely sure whether you'd class it as 'make-up', but my Lush 'Mint Julips' Lip Scrub is something I really couldn't manage without. I get very dry lips, especially if the weather is cold or I'm feeling stressed, and this just buffs away the dry skin and leaves my lips so soft, and perfect for applying lippy!

2) And how about fashion wise- is there an item of clothing you could not imagine being without?
Definitely. My leather jacket goes almost everywhere with me, it goes with virtually everything I own, and is perfect for dressing up or down. I should probably invest in another jacket as I've worn it so much that holes are forming in the lining (oops!), but for the moment, I'll make do with the one I've got.

3) What has been your best bargain?
This is such a hard one as there's so many, my wardrobe is full of bargains as they are all I can afford! But if I was going to choose one, I'd say my Trench coat, which I purchased in the Miss Selfridge sale at £30 down from almost £80. While it still sounds a lot, the material is absolutely amazing and as it's such a classic style, so I can see it lasting me for ages, a definite bargain in my books! 

4) What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Being able to share fashion that I love! Not everyone I know is as clothes-mad as me, so it's so nice to be able to share my shopping addiction with so many others who are just like me.

5) Do you have an idol?
My nan! She's the strongest person I know, and I hope I have the kind of amazing life and experience as what she's had.

6) What is your favourite book, album, film?
My favourite book is one I read when I was a lot younger, and that's Kensukes Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo (sad I know!), my favourite album has to be Ben Howard: Every Kingdom, his music is just so gorgeous, and is my go-to relaxation remedy. My favourite film is a hard choice, but I'm going for Bridesmaids, just because no matter how many times I watch it, it never fails to make me laugh.

7) If you could recommend one product to anybody, what would it be?
Balance Me daily essentials worked absolute wonders on my skin, but unfortunately I just can't afford to keep buying them! I'd recommend them to anyone to try out though!

8) Ever had a wardrobe or make up malfunction?
I used to have a really bad habit of not wearing waterproof mascara to go to the cinema, and as I cry at almost anything in films, my mascara ALWAYS ended up all down my face. So attractive. I make sure to wear it every time now, just in case!

9) Are you a day bird or a night owl?
Definitely a day bird, although I do like a sleep in, I always feel better if I get up early and make the most of my day.

10) If you had to pick one song to describe your mood right now, what would it be?
I have no idea as my mood changes so quickly, even I can't keep up some times!

11) If you could give one tip to a new blogger, what would it be?
Just blog about what you love I think. I'm a new blogger myself so I'm still learning, but I love it so far, and I can't wait to see my blog develop and (hopefully) grow along with me! 

My 11 questions are...
1) What inspired you to start your blog?
2) How would you describe your style in three words?
3) Which is your favourite high street store to shop in?
4) Are you a spendaholic or a serious saver?
5) What item of clothing do you love most in your wardrobe?
6) Are there any bloggers that really inspire you?
7) Do you prefer shoes or bags?
8) Is there an item of clothing you own but never wear?
9) What's the most you've spent on one beauty product?
10) Do you have a celebrity role model/inspiration?
11) Is there any advice you'd give to new bloggers, or people thinking about starting a blog?
