Okay so I have about a million things to talk about in today’s post! Mainly because I haven’t blogged in two weeks (sorrrryy!) but also because so much has happened in those two weeks.
So firstly Madeupmondays was nominated for the Liebster Award!! Woooo! I cannot even tell you how happy that made me! I am a new blogger and I do it for a bit of fun and relaxation, so to be recognised by other bloggers is such a lovely feeling.
So how this works is that I answer 11 questions asked by the blogger that nominated me, I give you 11 random facts about myself (yikes!) and then I nominate 11 other bloggers I admire and ask them 11 questions of my own.
Here we go…..
1. Beauty product you can’t live without?
Hmmm this is a tough one! But I would have to say…..my M.A.C foundation. I hardly leave my house without some on!
2. Beer, Wine or Liquor?
I do love a chilled glass of wine….but also my gin….how do I choose?! ….Erm Wine!
3. What is your guilty pleasure?
*refer to answer to question 2* haha
4. Favourite mascara?
Changes from time to time but right now it’s Hypnosé by Lancôme
5. Favourite perfume?
Chance by Chanel but I can never afford it!
6. How did you come up with your blog name?
Well, I decided to commit to blogging once a week…about makeup so Monday seemed a good day to do that. I wanted something catchy, makeup Monday already existed and then madeupmondays just clicked and just worked. I just thought give a look on the Monday, you have all week to invest in any new products, practice and perfect the look for the weekend party!…. Everything makeup to get yourself madeup
7. Favourite meal of the day?
This has to be dinner! I literally think about it all day….. Actually making me hungry now.
8. Who are your favourite bloggers?
I have so many, every blogger has a unique thing about them! But for makeup I would have to say I love http://www.brooksmakeup.wordpress.com her page is so lovely and girly, I came across her when she commented on one of my posts so I’m glad she did! Another favourite of mine is http://www.studentsartorialist.wordpress.com the blogger is a close friend of mine and helps me keep up with fashion trends which helps because I’m so useless when it comes to clothes!
9. What is your go to outfit for a night out?
Has to be a little black dress! I have a million…my uni flat mates actually used to say all I wear out is black!
10. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I will be turning 28…I’d like to be a microbiologist maybe working across the pond in the USA developing new antibiotics (that is my career goal) I’d like to be possibly engaged to a lovely man and be happy!
11. What is your biggest beauty fail?
When I was 18 I went on a night out and did smokey eyes but they were too dark, I had no fake eye lashes on so I just looked like a panda. Not a great look and I have NEVER repeated it!
11 random facts…..
1. I’m obsessed with the CSI franchise. I think I have seen just about every episode.
2. I hate the sound of things being pulled out a freezer, it gives me the chills (no pun intended).
3. I love weird science, using maggots for skin treatments things like that. And I got far too excited when I cultured some bacteria and it was bright pink.
4. I’m 5ft tall….that’s pretty random as I don’t know what went wrong!
5. I love the outdoors, I really want to go to one of those rock climbing places and make that a hobby.
6. I find meeting new people is really awkward because I end up talking far too much and they will probably never want to talk to me again ….
7. My favourite meal in the world is curry….and it has to be spicy!
8. I was born in Cambridge, but I have lived in Yorkshire the past 20 years but my parents are both Scottish. It’s confusing.
9. I have 5 of the most CUTEST nieces and nephews on the planet! And one just turned 9 last week…Happy Birthday again Christopher!
