Liebster Blog Award Tag!

Whilst away in Egypt, I came home to 2 emails which made me very happy as a new beauty blogger.  Number 1, Neal's Yard Remedies official Twitter, shared my review on their Wild Rose Daily Moisture with their 4,210 followers!! (At time of this post being published) and Number 2, Alice, owner of Secrets Of A Wannabe Charlotte had nominated me for a Liebster Blog Award!!!  Being the newbie that I am, I am of the understanding that it is an award nominated by other bloggers for up and coming, promising looking blogs with less than 200 followers.  I currently only have THREE, so you can imagine how happy I was when realisation hit, that it was being noticed by others too!!

For the rest of this post, I am going to structure it the same way Alice has, so here it is.....

The Rules
1. Post 11 facts about yourself.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, and create 11 questions for people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people to give this award to and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs!

Questions From Secrets Of A Wannabe Charlotte
1.  What is the worst product you've ever bought?
The worst product I have ever bought could possibly be 17- Clear Definition Mascara, which I am currently in the process of writing a review on so stay tuned for that!!

2.  What is your best home-made beauty tip?
My best home made beauty tip would have to be, alternate your face wash routine each day between St Ives Apricot Invigorating Scrub and E45 emollient wash for super soft, smooth and clear skin.

3.  Blogs or YouTube?
Blogs!!  I love watching other peoples YouTube reviews etc. but for me I am attempting to not put my face to this, I am sure I am not fooling my friends, but I dont know, Im not sure why I made that decision.

4.  Would you rather: wear flats or heels for the rest of your life?
I would say flats as they can be both dressy or casual and of course, comfy!!  But there are so many gorgeeeousssss heels, though I will have to stick with flats.

5.  Could you happily never wear make up again?
In a word .....NO!

6.  What is the most important part of your daily beauty/hair routine?
The most important part of my daily beauty routine is to moisturise my face of a morning and before I go to bed religiously, mainly due to the fact I unfortunately, have eczema around my eyelids which can look awful if I miss a moisturising session!!

7.  What is your favourite brand of make up - high street or high end?
My fave brand of make up at present is Maybelline, they are always bringing out something new, its very affordable and reliable, not to mention their 24hr Tattoo Eyeshadow ...lifesaver!!

8.  If you could create your dream beauty product, what would it be?
If I could create my dream beauty product it would have to be a Mascara that gives length, volume, definition, as well as an automatically rotating brush with heat to help curl at the same time.  Effortless!! 

9.  What is your dream job - or are you in it?
My dream job would probably to be able to beauty blog without having to do anything else!!

10. Who is your biggest fashion idol?
My biggest fashion idol would have to be Kristen Stewart at the moment, she does casual SO COOL, and formal just beautifully!

11. If you could be anyone for the day, who would it be?
If I could be anyone for a day I think it would be Nicole Scherzinger.  Though there is a 'but' ...It would have to be on the Sunday of an F1 car race, so I can get right in on the action in the Mclaren Mercedes garages, which are MY team, because FYI, fact number 12, Im a big F1 car fan!!!

My Questions For The Next People I Tag
1.  What is your all time favourite perfume?
2.  Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, frizzy straight or somewhere in between?
