TAG: Liebster Award

Thank you very much Alice for nominating me!

For those of you that have not heard of the Liebster award, it is an award given to bloggers from other bloggers. It's a great way to answer some of your questions, as well as discovering new blogs!
Here are the rules:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
3. You pick 11 nominees with under 200 followers to answer your questions.
4. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
5. You must tell the nominees that they have been nominated by you.

These are the questions Alice gave me:

 1. Why did you start your blog?
I've always loved writing, and as I'm an addict to blogs, I was in love with the idea.
I knew I wasn't doing anything innovative, but as long as one person would benefit from my ramblings, I was happy to do it.

2. What is your favourite foundation?
I think my most loved foundation is NARS Sheer Glow, and I've been matched to both Montblanc (which I think was the best shade for me) and Ceylan. 
However, on a daily basis I'm not a huge fan of foundations, and I just like to use some concealer, or a tinted moisturizer like Garnier's BB Cream (in Light - a firm favourite of mine!)

3. Who is your favourite designer?
I have to admit I don't know too much about fashion. I love following fashion blogs, but I'd rather spend my money on makeup than on extremely expensive clothes. I'm a huge advocate of Zara, H&M, Mango... and lots of accessories! <3 

4. What are your hobbies outside of blogging?
I really love photography and editing videos (I've made a couple, if you want to check them out... here's the link.) However, the thing I enjoy the most in the world is reading (I'll post a list of my favourite reads soon!) and obsessing over TV series (Game of Thrones, Orange is The New Black, PLL... etc. <3)

5. What are your favourite shoes?
My most loved shoes are my leather brown sandals, because they go with absolutely everything! However, my favourite would be a pair of black sandals from Zara that are extremely uncomfortable to walk around with, because they have no platform, but so so pretty to look at! 

6. What is your dream job?
Well, I'm studying Tourism and Business at uni, so my goal is to work as a hotel manager. I'd also love to work as an event planner, because it's a very creative career route! 

7. What part of blogging do you enjoy the most?
I think the part I enjoy the most is knowing people find useful my posts, and also the comments! I love reading your opinions and getting to know people in general. 

8. Makeup you couldn't live without?
I'm extremely obsessed with lipsticks, which might surprise my readers because I mostly post about nail polish, which I also love. I have +50 lipsticks, which might not seem that much to some bloggers out there, but I know my friends and family think I'm insane for spending that much on makeup! 

9. Favourite item that you own?
I think my most beloved item is my rose gold cross ring, because it's a gift from a loved one! (Pictured below.) If we're talking clothes, then my black leather moto jacket from Mango, because it fits in my definition of perfection. <3 
(Makeup-wise, I just can't pick one!)

10. Who are your favourite bloggers?
That's a very difficult question to answer, because I think I love all of the blogs I follow, each for a different reason. I'd like to say these are my top 10, because I get really happy and excited when I see they've posted something:

11. Who is your style inspiration?
I think my biggest inspirations are bloggers such as Yara Michels from This Chick's Got Style, because she usually wears basics and likes accessorizing her outfits. But I think most of my inspiration comes from people I know, and pictures I really adore on Pinterest

From my list of blogs I follow and love, I chose the following nominees:

Olatz from Russian Red Geek 
Moira from Litratista
Jennie from Oh This is Awkward
Stefanie from Ispysj
Lily from Sea Spray
Lauren from Tales about Nails
Amy from BlogRince
Jess from Obsess with Jess
Zoë from Zoe Badley

And these are the questions I'd love to see them answer:
  1. What hobbies do you have, besides blogging? (copying this one from you, Alice!)
  2. Where do you come from? Tell us about a tradition you celebrate!
  3. How would you describe your clothing style? (ex: bohemian, etc.)
  4. How and where do you see yourself in 5 years?
  5. Which is your most beloved item and why? 
  6. What is your staple makeup look?
  7. Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
  8. If you had to pick, which 5 items would you take with you to a dessert island? (Survival items not included!)
  9. Pick 1 book, 1 TV series and 1 film you love! 
  10. Who are your top 10 blogs/bloggers?
  11. List 5 places you want to visit.
