Liebster Award

Ashley Wells @unicornbblogger nominated me for the Liebster Award. Thank you so much!! So yes, I got nominated for the Liebster Award. I was so excited when I found out because I started this blog thinking no one would read it, and for someone to recognize it enough to nominate me is amazing. Thank you again! If you were like me and was like what is the Liebster Award? Keep reading.

The Liebster Award is like having a title to your blog. When we say nominated, we don't mean you're in a competition to win something. It just means someone has nominated you to have this title, 'Liebster Blog Award'. The award is given to people with under 200 followers and once you receive the award, you answer 11 questions the nominator has given you. You also then nominate 10 more people for the award and give them 11 questions to answer. It has been going on for so long that no one really knows how and why it started but I did find some information. Liebster means 'dearest' in German and originally you had to have under 3,000 followers. Also you only had to nominate 3-5 blogs. So it has changed a little bit but no ones know why or when.

Here are the questions given to me:

1. Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I watched Zoella's videos and wanted to do something like her. I am a bit shy for YouTube videos so I decided to make a blog instead.

2. What/who inspires you in life?
I find YouTuber's so inspiring. My favorite one must be Sawyer Hartman. He makes the most amazing short films and it's something I would love to do in future. He has also taught me that photography and art can be more than just a hobbie.

3. What is your favorite brand? (beauty or clothing)
My favorite beauty brand is Maybelline New York and I have to many clothing brand favs.

4. What is your favorite book and why?
I have so many favorite books but my favorite beauty books is Amazing Face by Zoe Foster and all the ones by Lauren Conrad.

5. What do you want to be when you grow up (or your ultimate career goal)?
For a career I really want to do something with media and design. I would love to work on a film or TV set. I love all the behind the scenes stuff!

6. If we were forced to live in a mostly black and white world, but each person could have their own personal colour, what colour would you choose?
I would probably choose orange because it's my favorite colour.

7. If you could have any animal in the world, what would it be and what would you name it?
I would have a panda because it's one of my favorite animals and I would name it Pandy.

8. Where would you love to travel?
I want to travel the whole world. (America and Europe) But at the moment I really want to go to Japan.

9. What is your favorite film?
I love the Fast and Furious franchise and all the movies!

10. What do you consider your signature perfume to be? I don't really have a signature perfume but I have used a lot of Britney Spears perfumes.

11. What is your favorite designer or artist?
I'm don't really like a particular designer or artist. I like bits and pieces from different designers/artists.

My blog nominations: Unfortunately since im still a new blogger, I havn't found many blogs. And most of them have more than 200 followers. I thought it wouldn't be nice just finding people for the purpose of having 11 nominations, so I only have 6. Sorry!

My questions:
1. What inspired you to start your blog?
2. Your ultimate dream holiday and why?
3. What's your reaction to receiving this award?
4. Favourite beauty guru?
5. What are your interests other than beauty?
6. What would you like to see your blog do in future?
7. What do you do as a career or would like to in the future?
8. What's your best achievement?
9. Who inspires you most?
10. Favorite beauty product?
11. What is something you wish you could own and why?

Holiday Haul

Hey everyone, so last week I was on school holidays and of course I went shopping. I bought a few things and thought I would share them with you all. Enjoy!

First, I went to this discounted makeup store called Cosmetic Fragrance Direct. They are also have an online store called cfd.com.au. If you live in Australia, I defiantly recommend this store.I aways buy a bit from here! So what I bought was a 5 brush set ($5), a mascara ($7), 2 lipsticks ($7 each) and a loose powder ($5)

Next I did a bit of clothes shopping at a few stores and got a bit carried away by buying 3 jackets. Whoops... All well you can never have to many jackets in winter!

Cocolatte ($25)
Cotton On ($20)
Jay Jays ($25)
Typo (assorted prices)
Cotton On Body ($2)

So there are the things I bought these holidays and I hope you enjoyed looking at them. It's always a bit of fun looking at other people's finds!

Until next time,

My First Guest Post!

Hey everyone,

You may or may not have known that a few weeks ago I did a guest post for a blog called Life and Beauty.
After that post I wrote a small one on my blog telling you where to find it and if you had any questions or wanted to know more to let me know. I was very excited when someone on Twitter said they would be interested in hearing about it. So, I decided that I would write a post on how I went about writing one and maybe give a few tips as well.
The way it started was I was on twitter looking at #bbloggers. (if you don't know what that is, it's a hash tag beauty bloggers use to inform other beauty bloggers that they might not be following about anything beauty related. They might ask questions, advertise comps or let people know they have blogged.) One particular blogger asked if anyone was interested in writing a guest blog while they were on holidays. I originally scrolled past it because I never done one before and didn't know what to do. About 10 minutes later I thought it could be a good opportunity and a great experience. I told the blogger I was interested but I had never done one before. She messaged me back saying that it was ok and it would be great if I did one for her. She gave a period of time that I could post it and said I could post as many as I wanted in that time frame. Of course I did one because quality is better than quantity. (To me anyway)

The next thing I had to do was think of what to write about. I couldn't do a haul, favourites or opinionated post because it wasn't my blog, so I decided to do an informative one. Next I had to think of a topic. I had a few that I thought off, but I chose the one that I found most interesting and something I hadn't seen many people write about.

The next thing was the hardest part for me. Now that I thought of something to write, I didn't know how to write it. Do I pretend it's the owner of the blog writing it or do I let them know it's me? Also if I say it's me, do I introduce myself or just wait till the end? And also do I include my blog's link? To figure this out I googled how to write a guest post. Well, that was no help at all! All I found was how to ask someone if they could write a guest post and to use correct spelling. My next resource was to ask the person I was writing for and to check out other guest posts. Luckily I found one and it helped a lot. I decided to introduce myself and just talk a little bit before I got into the actual article.

Once the article was written I included my links at the bottom and that was done. I had written my first guest post! 

If you are planning on writing a guest post and am not sure what to do. Check out MINE, it might help a little bit. If it does let me know in the comments, it would mean a lot.

Thank you and sorry it's quite a wordy post. Hope you enjoyed and if you have any further questions just let me know.

Until next time,

June Favourites

Hey everyone,

So June has finished and July has started. That only means one thing... June favourites!!!
Lets look at what I have been loving this last month.

Yellow Bonds Sloppy Joe Jumper.
I am in love with this jumper for so many reasons. 1: It's so comfy. 2: I love the colour. I'm getting more into wearing bright colours and I am loving yellow at the moment. If you take a look at my May favourites I also have a yellow jumper on there too. There is just something about yellow jumpers that I love. This jumper is great to wear as a sweat shirt or over a pair of leather look leggings. I love it!!
Sorry about the creases. And it's a lot brighter.

BYS eye shadow in Natural Delight.
I am really loving this pallet at the moment. I have been looking everywhere for some neutral matte eye shadows. When I saw this, I thought it was perfect. It has a bit of shimmer, but not to much. I use the top colour as a base and then the second or fourth all over my lid. For the crease I use the last one. I use it every time I go out for dinner or special occasion.

Maybelline New York Fit Me foundation in 230
I'm loving this foundation. I don't wear a lot of foundation, but when I do it was powder. I really wanted to try liquid because it looks smoother and gives a better finish. This one is great. It gives my skin a good coverage and what I love most about it is it has a bit of shine to it. It doesn't make my face look dull.

Soap and Glory Scrub.
I originally saw this brand on a Tanya Burr favourites video, and I thought it looked really cool. I tried looking at where I could get it in Australia. Of course I only found one place in the city, but lucky I was going there that week. I took a look at the products they had to offer but being in Australia they were quite pricey. I chose the cheapest one which was the scrub, which didn't bother me because I love scrubs. The smell to this I love, It's sort of sugary which is really nice. It works great too.

Hope you enjoyed reading what I loved last month. And I am interested in yours, so... What did you love last month?

Until next time,

Nail Envy

Hey guys,

So over the last week I have become addicted to Pinterest. If you don't already know what Pinterest is, it's a site where you can find ideas, crafts, products, recipes, pretty much anything. And they are put into categories. For example I have been on the hair and beauty section, and I have found all these amazing nail ideas. On Pinterest you can post your own ideas you have found from websites or repin ones posted by something else. 

This week I thought I would share with you all some creative nail design I found and love on Pintrest.

These are just a few that I like. My favourite is the tribal one but I love them all! 
I wish I could do these to my nails, but unfortunately I can't even paint them properly without stuffing it up.
Which one is your fav?

Until next time,

Images used were found off Pinterest which would have come from another site. I do not own any of these pictures.
