Liebster Award

I wasn't really sure what the Liebster Award was, but I kept seeing it popping up on blogs and then I was lucky enough to be nominated by the lovely India from Touchscreens and Beauty Queens (go check out her blog she's a babe). Basically it's a way to recognise bloggers who are new to blogging or have under 200 followers and it's a chance to boost your own blog (if you're nominated) and make new friends/find new blogs in the process... And who doesn't like making new friends and finding incredible blogs along the  way?

The Rules
- Mention the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers 
- Create a new set of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominating people wasn't hard as I'm always scouting around different blogs and I've recently found some incredible blogs who haven't yet topped 200 followers...
Nominees (based on BlogLovin' followers)
India's Questions
1. What inspired you to start blogging?
I love reading other people's blogs and I love writing plus I have an unhealthy obsession with all things makeup and skincare related so I thought why not share

2. What is your favourite part about blogging?
I really love networking with other bloggers, I love reading any comments that my posts receive and I love trying to make my blog look as beautiful as I can!
3. What beauty product could you not live without?
This is suchhhh a tricky question but I guess concealer... be gone bags and blemishes!
4. Who is your style icon?
I like the whole boho vibe that Vanessa Hudgens has got going on but I mainly get my stylspiration from other students around me at Uni *ooooh her bag looks nice...*
5. Where do you want to be in 5 year’s time?
In five years time I would like to have graduated with a good grade *ahem, a first please?!*, be working in my dream career (see question 9) and be settled down with some hunky man with my family around me. A girl can dream...
6. What have you found the hardest part about blogging?
The hardest part about blogging has been getting my blog seen. It's hard to know how to get it "out there" without irritatingly spanning the pages of other bloggers as I go along. I do think it's down to networking though and I've met some lovely girls already through their blogs.
7. Where do you think is the most beautiful place in the world?
The garden at my family home, especially when my loved ones are in it!
8. If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
I'd like to meet Obama, he seems like a cool dude.
9. What is your dream career?
I love writing, I love blogging, I love YouTube so something in social media or beauty journalism would be incredible.
10. What is your favourite part about yourself?
My bum? I kid, I kid... I would have to say my dedication. If I really have my heart set on something I'll try, try and try again until I (hopefully) get there.
11. Who inspires you?
An obvious one, but my friends and family.
