Q&A #2. INSPIRED BY THE LIEBSTER AWARD.

25.7.14


I got nominated twice again for the LIEBSTER award by the wonderful Jemma and Miriam, however I've also done two of them now and decided that I would just answer the questions instead because that would be super fun. I'd just like to say a massive thank you to those who have nominated me for this award and I can't believe you like my blog that much to even think about it. I'm super grateful and I love you all.

1. What is your must-have item?
Can I pick my phone? is that acceptable. I go nowhere without. I use it for everything and I would be pretty lost without it. I also must have straws everywhere, I can't drink without one. I have them in my bag, room and the kitchen. I actually get quite shocked when people don't have them in the house.

2. Why did you start writing a blog?
I was bored one summer and decided to give it a go. I can't exactly remember who I started reading first but inspired me so much and it was a step above writing Fan Fiction on Mibba. I love writing and creating content and it also stemmed my love for photography. I just love having my thoughts out there and its even more wonderful that people read it.

3. Do you have a favourite quote?
I do! Ever since I read it I've tried to live by it and I even have it tattooed above my ankle!. It says 'All the effort in the world, won't matter if you're not inspired.' I think it's the best quote to have in your life and it's a wonderful reminder that I should and will do what I love. Well hopefully.

4.  If you could only eat one type of food forever, what would it be?
Hmm this is a tough question but Mexican maybe. I love all them Nachos and fajitas. I've recently branched out to burritos and enchiladas and I also love them. As long as it isn't too spicy then I'm good to go.

5. What is your favourite blog?
This is even tougher then the last question. I don't have a firm favourite because I love all content from different blogs and how they differ. I do however read Becky's religiously for the past couple of months and I love it. Her personality really shines through each post!.

6. Vintage or high street?
High street for me! I'm not good at finding vintage clothing that suits or fits me or that I even like on me. I don't even really go in a lot of vintage stores. I've been in one but it wasn't impressive or creative. I think you can get really nice vintage inspired pieces from the high street that can sometimes cost less.

7. How old are you?
I am 20 years old. Or twenteen (Yano, 20 + teen. Yeh) if I can get away with it. A lot of people actually think i'm younger. It's ranged from 15-18. I actually take it as a compliment since when I'm in my 40's I might look early thirties. 

8. Do you have any advice to people who want to start a blog?
Do it for yourself! Like anything you do. Don't just do it to become 'famous' and get swept into have views and followers. Create content you would read yourself and also don't limit yourself to one genre as you might lose interest in writing. Also don't expect to get free things straight away and just have fun!.

9. Books or films?
Books all the way for me. I love getting stuck into a book and creating my own little film in my head play out as the book goes on. This is why I love reading a book before watching the film adaptation so my little 'play' in my head isn't tainted by the film. 

10. What is your favourite magazine?
Take a break. I like reading the stories, the more absurd the better. I like doing the shopping quiz and I love looking at the problem page. Every time I go to my Nan's she saves me them to take home which is so lovely of her.

11. Random fact about you is:
I have a major fear of fire. It's horrendous. Yes I do science which can involve fire but I'm still iffy about being near it. I don't even know where it came from. I just know from an early age when I stayed at my Nan's bungalow I would be certain that a fire would break out and I would be trapped. It's one of the main reasons that when I'm by myself in the house I close all doors and check everywhere at least four times before I go to bed.

12. What's your biggest fear?
That I will fail at life. Academic stuff is hard for me, I just don't feel I'm particularly good at anything. So even getting into university and making it to my last year is an amazing achievement. I'm just scared of what's going to happen in the real world. Especially since a lot of people my age have their own house with a child and getting married. I feel far too young for that.

13. One life-changing makeup tip?
Adding highlight in the corner of my eyes to make me look awake. It works wonders for me and I don't go a day without. I love it.

14. What's your most unhealthy habit?
Most likely how much unhealthy food I eat. It's horrendous and I'm trying to cut down, however as we speak my mum will be bringing me back white chocolate aero which I have never seen! so it's understandable.

15. How many lipsticks do you own?
Oh my far too many to even want to admit!. If we count all the lip balms, lip glosses and chubby sticks then over 50 maybe. okay well over 60!. Oh gosh I don't want to think.

16. If you could only use one foundation for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
From the ones I've tried it would most likely be the No7 matte foundation which has been in my makeup stash since it came out on the block. You know when there was advert for a machine to find your perfect shade. I've bought it religiously ever since and always go back to it. I got that upset it wasn't in stock once that the woman gave me a two pots of the stuff to keep me going until it was in stock. How kind of her.

17. Are you happy right now?
Right in this moment yes I am, it's morning and Im watching Jeremy Kyle and writing this post. Overall in general, I am and am not. I have a theme night out coming up Saturday that's done by my town and I am not one for really dressing up and have anxiety about it since I was told. However the bar I'm off too the theme is 'Sons of anarchy' so just going to find what fits that. Ripped jeans, black shoes, a white top and maybe a sleeveless denim jacket (if I can find one). 

18. Most recent book you read and would you recommend it?
I just finished have a little faith by Candy Harper and I really would. It's such a girly book and a lot like 'Angus, thongs and full frontal snogging,'. It made me laugh so much.

19. Which was your best holiday ever?
I've been on so many amazing holidays and I'm lucky that I have family who love to travel. I would however say Disneyland in America. I can't remember most since I was little(ish) but what I can remember and when I look back at the photos and signatures I smile straight away. I'd love to go again.

20. Are you organised or rather chaotic? 
I am an organised chaos. I like things to be neat and tidy but not to the point where it looks like a showroom house. I like it to look tidy and neat but well loved and lived in. It's actually a hard thing to do. I also try my hardest to been organised with studies but sometimes time creeps up and I'm usually in a panicked mess.

21. What's one thing you want to achieve in the nearer future?
Pass university with at least a 2.1 or a high 2.2. Having a 1st would be amazing but I'm not entirely sure that would happen. I'm actually sad this will be my last year. Where has the years gone.

22. What's your favourite part about your makeup or skincare routine?
Seeing my face transform. Especially when applying makeup. My eyes can look so droopy and meh without and then bam! some eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara and my eyes look wide and nice. When taking makeup off, I just love how clean my face feels afterwards. Can't beat that clean fresh feeling!.
