The Leibster Award

A bit of a different post today - I was nominated for the Leibster Award by the lovely LouJay and Imogene. For those who don't know, you answer 11 questions given to you, create 11 questions of your own, and tag 11 other bloggers with a follower count under 200 to answer them. As LouJay tagged me first (about a month ago, my bad), I'll answer her questions!

1. Who or what inspired you to start a blog?
After watching Youtubers such as Zoe Sugg, Tanya Burr and EssieButton, I discovered that they had blogs, and that led me to really wanting to create my own. It took me a very long time to gather the courage, but I loved writing and photography anyway, and knew blogging would allow me to do both on a (semi) daily basis.

2. What is the most expensive item in your makeup bag?
It's probably by Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.

3. If you were stranded on a desert island, what one item would you have with you?
Can I cheat and say a plane with a pilot inside?

4. What are your goals for 2014?
To get into university, mostly. I just feel like at this point in my life, it's a good time to move away from home and start living for myself. I just want to be happier, healthier and doing something I enjoy!

5. What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?
I live in riding pants and disco pants, so I'd have to say my pairs of those from Topshop. They're just so comfortable and go with everything.

6. What do you hope to get out of blogging?
Enjoyment, really. I have so much fun creating my content from scratch and putting it out for the world to see and getting feedback, it's so rewarding. I just want that to continue. Having relationships with PR companies would be great too, but that's not my main objective at all.

7. Cats or dogs?
I love both, but CATS.

8. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
I don't know where I'm going to be in a couple months' time, I really have no idea where I'll be in five years! Hopefully doing something I enjoy with the people I love supporting me.

9. What is your favourite dinner time meal?
Spaghetti Carbonara is my all-time favourite, it's delicious.

10. What is your staple accessory?
My studded boots from Romwe, I adore them. They're so comfy and versatile.

11. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
That's tough, but I think it would be my attitude towards procrastination. I do it a lot, and it irritates me so much because I never get every single thing done when I want to. If we're talking physicality wise, then I wouldn't mind being a bit taller.

The questions I'm going to provide are as follows:
1. Is there one makeup item you could not live without?
2. And how about fashion wise - is there an item of clothing you could not imagine being without?
3. What has been your best bargain?
4. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
5. Do you have an idol?
6. What is your favourite; book, album, film?
7. If you could recommend one product to anybody, what would it be?
8. Ever had a wardrobe or makeup malfunction?
9. Are you a day bird or a night owl?
10. If you had to pick one song to describe your mood right now, what would it be?
11. If you could give one tip to a new blogger, what would it be?

I tag; Mollie, Polly, Kirsty, Amy, and Hannah. Apologies if you have been tagged before, I did try and check! (I know I cheated by not including 11 people) I hope you'll give the tag a shot, it seems like a really great way to promote smaller blogs!

Thanks again to LouJay and Imogene for tagging me, I really appreciate it!
