Liebster Award

These things are not normally my kind of thing, I cannot stand Youtube videos of even my most favourite Youtubers rambling on and answering a load of questions but, surprisingly, when written in a blog post I love this type of thing! So, when Jill from Makeupandstuff kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award I was obviously more than happy to take up the opportunity and give you some honest answers to the questions she has set, so, here goes...

The Rules of the Liebster Award:

Provide 11 Facts About Yourself

1. I have had epilepsy ever since I was 16 and I am currently fighting an ongoing battle with seizures despite being on medication.

2. I have naturally straight hair which I must admit I love, I don't need no GHDs!

3. I got a poem published in a book whilst I was in junior school, the poem is about my guinea pig who died...

4. I have been engaged twice, the second time I was engaged the stone fell out of my ring, shortly after we split up. It was clearly a sign our relationship was falling apart haha!

5. I hate chicken soup with a passion, if I even see a can of it I will feel sick to my stomach and if I smell it, well, get me a bucket ASAP!

6. I never use a brush to apply foundation, I hate it, I always use my little finger (is that odd?).

7. I have an insane love for sugar skulls

8. I used to collect thongs, I would go into town, be attracted to pretty underwear like a bird is to shiny things and I would then spend loads of money to take them back home and leave them in my underwear drawer unworn.

9. I am very stubborn which can be seen as a flaw but I also see it as a quality for many reasons.

10. I absolutely love the countryside and would choose to get covered in mud than dine at a fancy restaurant any day, oooh arrrr!

Answer the 11 Questions Set by the Blogger that Nominated You

Why Did You Start Blogging?

I started off making Youtube videos 7 months ago and still make them weekly, don't get me wrong I love making videos but I wanted to do something where I could write! I have always loved writing ever since a young age and I had dabbled with Blogger on and off before making this blog but had never properly knuckled down to it. Then one day I just thought to myself, you love writing and you need a hobby you will stick to and, well, here I am!

What is One Piece of Advice You Would Give Your Younger Self?

Take every single opportunity given to you

What's Your Favourite TV Show?

Currently it's Downtown Abbey, the last one is this Sunday, then what will I watch? Gah!

What's the Best Holiday You've Ever Been on?

It has to be to Costa Brava which is in Spain. It was just me and my Dad and we had a fab time from going on boat trips to having amazing dinners! 

If you Could Live Anywhere in the World Where Would it be?

Honestly, I am not sure, a few places that interest me and would love to visit are Las Vegas, Prague and Australia but I don't think I would want to live there. I think I would choose Devon or Bristol as my heart still lives there!

What's the Most Expensive Beauty Product you have Ever Bought?

I am not one for high end makeup at all, I think the most expensive has to be Benefits The Real Steal which includes the They're Real Mascara and Push Up Liner. I paid about 17 I think and I hated the mascara and liner so got a refund. No idea what all the hype is about over that mascara, all it did was clump my lashes!

When was your Proudest Moment?

Oooo this is a tricky one, I can't possibly limit it down to just one but the first is when I held my little sister in the hospital for the first time, I was 8 and it was just absolutely amazing. Another time was when a piece of artwork I entered into a competition won 1st prize out of the whole of the South West and it then went on to win 2nd prize out of the whole of the UK. Also, every time I have been for an interview and then got offered the job I have just felt on top of the world!

What's your Favourite thing about Blogging?

I love the writing aspect obviously but it has to be the photography. I have always had a passion for photography but since I have started blogging my love for it has gone to a whole new level. Give me a camera and some products to picture and I will be in my element taking pictures all day!

What do you like to do as a Treat for Yourself?

I would probably say doing a bit of online shopping and not going wild but picking up a few nice little bargains!

What would the TV Show or Movie of Your Life be Called?

Hmmm, tricky one, I don't think I could cram my life into a movie so think it would have to be a TV series. I think it would have to be called either Misunderstood, You'll Never Understand or Delusional.

If you were a Superhero, what Super Power would you have and What would your Name be?

My superpower would be curing anyone who is ill back to full health and I, of course, would be called TheLuckyDiamond! 

My questions for you

If you could choose money, happiness or love what would you choose and why?

What is your Favourite Makeup Brand?

Have you ever lost the Motivation to Blog?

What is your Favourite Food?

What is one Makeup Product everyone 'hypes' about but you hate?

Is your hair colour natural or dyed?

Do you like tattoos and/or do you have any?

Do you have a schedule for your Blog or just post when and if you want?

Marmite, love it or hate it?

If you could be someone for the day who would it be?
