Because why not?

Liebster Award #2

11 June 2014
I was nominated for another Liebster Award by the gorgeous Taylor who writes Taylor De Vil, what perfect timing too because I have some busy days ahead and not enough posts organised to keep the non-posting-guilt at bay.

The rules of the game:1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.2. Display the award on your blog.3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.4. Nominate 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers.5. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.6. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:7. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

Here are the questions Taylor has asked:

What is your #1 beauty brand you stand by? 
Straight off the bat this is a super difficult question for me to answer but if I had to choose just one it would be Illamasqua, I've never purchased a product from them that I didn't love. If I could choose another for skin care products I would say Puretopia and if you'd let me choose a third I'd say Dermalogica for high end skin care.

Somewhere you would love to travel & why? 
Back to Paris. That city stole my heart!

Something you are passionate about? 
Let me be really predictable and say beauty products, I know it's as obvious as a punch in the face since I'm a makeup artist and I write a beauty blog in my spare time but there is nothing that I'm more passionate about. I can't list what would be second on my list because I'd have to list about 100 things that I'm equally as passionate about.
Your favourite Fashion Trend right now, if nothing now, your favourite past Trend? 
Boots and jackets, I'm fucking obsessed with boots and jackets.

What's one thing your followers may not know about you? 
I'm the youngest of 3, there is a 9 and 10 year gap between me, my sister and brother. I'm an auntie of 9 (I think.. I know that sounds bad but it really is easy to loose count) and I still (shamefully) live with my parents.

If you were stuck on an island, what are 3 beauty products you would need with you? 
Cleanser, moisturiser and sunscreen. Boring but I'd be happy as a pig in shit with those. If we are going to be specific I would want Angels on Bare Skin by Lush, Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream and anything with 30+ UVA and UVB protection.

One beauty product or Trend (past or present) you wish you could banish from the world? 
This is really hard for me, I'm a firm believer of wearing your clothes and makeup however you want and not giving a shit of what others think but if I had to choose one I'd have to say highlighting and contouring à la Kim Kardashian. Unless you're being photographed it's unnecessary and it won't make you look like Kim K.

Your favourite bloggers?
Don't make me choose favourites!! I read a lot of blogs.

Your favourite thing about your hometown? 
Everything, but the main thing would just be the fact that it's home. Not sure that I could ever move away, I chose Melbourne over a 4 year relationship. It was so worth it.

All time favourite movie(s)? 
Beauty and The Beast (my go-to when I'm feeling emotional sadness). Snatch (Brad Pitt is not only hilarious but sexy as fuck) and Step Brothers (because Step Brothers, hello!).

Your favourite things about blogging? 
It allows me to always be involved in everything beauty related even when paying artistry work is quiet. My chosen field of work makes me happy and it's so nice to have something to make you happy every single day.

Thank you so much Taylor for the nomination, I loved your questions and this post will help give me a blog break over the next few busy days. I'm not going to nominate anyone because I'm tired and I want to watch Masterchef so that's what I'm going to do.
