The Liebster Blog Award Tag!

So this week has contained a lot of exciting things like being the featured beauty blogger on HelloCotton (you can read more about that here)! I also created my very own, very first button last night! It was my first try so watch this space for a new improved button in the coming weeks/months... But if you feel like copying into your blog... Go ahead - there it is in the sidebar to the right!  

Also this week Keymi from Polish Me Beautiful tagged me for a Liebster Blog Award  . What overwhelms me is that all this has happened, and I only began blogging 11 days ago! Basically, the Liebster Award is given to rising bloggers with less than 200 followers - it's a German word that literally translates to 'dearest', and can be more widely used to mean a number of terms, including sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved and endearing.

3) Choose 11 people to give this award to and link them in your post.

1)  I'm half way through my Bachelors degree in Psychology.
2)  I'd like to use my degree to teach primary school aged children with psychological disorders.

3)  I'm double jointed in both my thumbs (and I can make them look pretty weird! - Don't worry, I wont show you).
4)  Kate Middleton is my idol.
5)  I've seen Westlife in concert FIVE times - see what I wore the last time I went here.
6)  My father is a chef (although I don't think I've inherited any of his skills!).
7)  I'm half Balinese and half British. 
8)  I've never broken a bone, although I seem to be dislocating my right knee *a lot*.
9)  My favourite food is profiteroles!
10) I love the smell of tea but don't much like the taste (odd, right?).

Questions from Polish Me Beautiful: 

1) What is your holiest of holy grails product?
Can I be cheeky and say 2? I absolutely swear by a Sudocrem face mask every other night, and Bio Oil on scars and stretch marks every morning and night!

2) What do you love most in this world?
I think I'll have to be cheesy and say people. People make my world- my beautiful family and friends.

3) If you could make one wish what would it be?
World Peace! Haha, who's seen Miss Congeniality? But seriously, it wouldn't be bad.

4) If you could choose between an unlimited budget for shoes, makeup, nail polish or clothes... What would you choose?
Clothes! My entire budget goes on new clothes, followed closely by nail polish.

5) Why do you wear makeup?
I wear make up for myself, and occasionally to impress my boyfriend. Wearing make up gives me that extra bit of confidence in myself, and I love how easily you can change make up for different situations and events.

6) What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?
I would make beauty videos on YouTube, and pursue a PhD in Educational Psychology. 

7. Do you have a pet?
None at the moment, but I've got my heart set on getting a dalmatian when I begin renting my own house. 

8. What is the most used piece in your wardrobe?
My Motel flowered shirt dress - it was a present from an ex, but I love it!

9. What is your favourite trend for this summer?
I love all the tropical print items being brought out now (very Jessie J-esque), now I just need the confidence to wear them!

10. What is the hardest thing you've ever done?
Go without talking to my sister for 4 months straight.

11. Why did you start your blog?
I'd been reading other people's blogs and watching other people's videos for years, and finally thought - I could do that!

5)  Could you happily never wear make up again?
6)  What is the most important part of your daily beauty/hair routine?
7)  What is your favourite brand of make up - high street or high end?
8)  If you could create your dream beauty product, what would it be?
9)  What is your dream job - or are you in it?
