Liebster Award!

The Liebster Award has been floating around the blogger world, and I was actually nominated by Joely at Fashion Beyond Forty not too long ago. I wanted to wait until I had access to a computer before I submitted my post because I knew there would be a lot of writing involved, and its just difficult to do on the mobile app or browser.

What I have learned by googling, is that this isn't an actual award. But, it allows you to nominate other fellow bloggers who don't have a lot of followers, to draw attention to their blogs as well. Helping eachother out :) I like the idea of this. I don't have a lot of followers, and this is a fun way to share everyones blog with one another.

So the "rules" of this award are:

1. Post 11 random facts about yourself.
2. Answer the 11 questions that the person who nominated you will post.
3. Choose 11 new blogs with under 200 followers for their Liebster Award, notify them that they have been nominated, and think of 11 questions for them to answer.

11 Random Facts About Me

1. I never used to wear mascara. I hated it. But then one day I decided to give it a try, and now I can't go out without wearing some mascara.

2. I have always had a cat growing up. I can't remember ever not having one.

3. The first job I got when I was 17, I stayed at for 7 years. A lot of my friends at the time were jumping around from job to job.

4. I graduated from college in 2010, with a diploma in Business Administration.

5. Although my last name is french, and we were taught french in grade school up until 9th grade, I understand very little now! I can't speak it either.

6. I have green eyes.

7. When I was little I was afraid of Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

8. I prefer fruity, tropical and cafe scents over perfume scents.

9. I've seen Britney Spears in concert 4 times - and I really want to see her in Vegas!

10. I've lived in the same house for almost 20 years of my life! (May 2015 will be 20 years!)

11. I love movies and television shows that focus on the paranormal.

11 Questions that Joely from Fashion Beyond Forty asked me:

1. What is your obsession other than fashion / beauty.
A: Smell good products. I love candles, and scentsy products! I want everything to smell good! :)

2. If you could have any guest blogger, who would it be and why?
A: Hmmm, thats tough. Maybe anyone who shares my love for beauty items.

3. Can you give us a skin care, or makeup tip?
A: MOISTURIZE! I can't stress this enough. Oily, combination, or dry skin all need to be moisturized. Whether its after your shower, in the morning or at night before bed, it has to be done! I usually moisturize twice a day.

4. What is your biggest fear?
A: Dying. Maybe more so what happens after death. Where do we go? Do we just go into dream world? Do we reincarnate into another person/animal? Not knowing is scary.

5. What is your "lazy day" outfit?
A: Yoga pants and a t-shirt or hoodie. If it's at home being lazy then just pajamas lol.

6. What one beauty practice do you put off or skip at times?
A: Primer. A lot of people swear by it. I don't like the texture of most of them, and I find that they don't really work for me anyway.

7. If you could have any one high priced item in your closet for free, what would you choose? 
A: A Chanel purse. 

8. What would you like more time for in your life?
A: Family and friends. I don't see them as much as I should.

9. If you were stuck on a deserted island, what one beauty product would you want with you?
A: A pretty lip gloss!

10. If you were stuck on a deserted island what one dessert would you want an unlimited supply of?
A: Ice cream! So many flavours!

11. Why did you start blogging?
A: It first started because I loved reading Ipsy bag reviews. After reading quite a few, I decided that I wanted to share my reviews with other people as well. Around that same time I started to receive sample programs from companies, and thought it would be perfect to blog those too!

Now it's my turn for my nominations! I nominate:

  1. Great answers! We should talk about the afterlife and paranormal if you are interested its sort of "my thing".

    Ah a Chanel purse what a good answer! Ha me too!

    Try Smashbox primer - it has been my favorite so far. Good texture!

    Ah indeed! Moisturize is probably one of THE BEST beauty tips you could give! I agree 100%!

    We share the candle and smelly good obsession!

    Thank you for answering the questions and your blog is amazing!
