Liebster Award + Nominations | AnjelCo

Friends! I've been ever so graciously nominated for the Liebster Award by none other than the gorgeous Kirsty from Wonder Of Freedom. Thank you again for the nomination! Basically this 'Liebster Award' business is taking the blogging world by storm as it is a fantastic way of connecting bloggers, growing audiences and getting to know the 'mind behind the blog.' 

So according to Kirsty, the rules are as follows:

  • You must answer the questions sent to you
  • Nominate 11 other Bloggers who have under 200 followers on Twitter.
  • Ask them 11 questions of your own for them to answer in their own post!

Sounds easy enough, so let's get started!
These are the questions Kirsty asked me:

Who is your biggest inspiration in life?

It feels almost cliche to say this but if I had to pick a person it would be my mum. She is my role model and definitely someone I aspire to be. 

What's your favourite item of clothing?

Some people are handbag fanatics, I on the other hand go crazy for shoes- I swear I'm the next Imelda Marcos. One item I absolutely CANNOT and REFUSE to live without are my White Converse Low Tops. They seriously go with everything and anything and I go through them pretty quickly because of that too.. At the moment I'm buying a new pair every year, that's how much I love them and wear them out. 

What's your favourite perfume?

At the moment, I'm crazy for the Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne, after having picked up a travel size when I was overseas I had to go and buy myself a full bottle from Duty Free I loved it that much! Don't get me wrong though, my senses still tingle for the Beyonce 'Heat' perfume like it's going out of style! ; )

Who inspired your blog?

For me, I don't think it's necessarily a question of who but of what. It seems silly to say that an inanimate object has inspired you, but that's how I feel about makeup. Since I was a wee little tyke I have always been intrigued about this magic stuff that makes your face even more magic. 

Do you have a favourite Disney film?

Hmm... This is a tough one! I don't think I could pick really! How about a top three? haha
I would have to say it's a tie between Herclues, Anastasia and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. But if you bring Frozen into the equation...

Favourite brand?

Erm, does Primark count? 

If you could have one wish, what would it be?

To move to the UK and live on the shores of Brighton! : )

What's the biggest plus factor of starting your blog?

Definitely collaborating, networking and making new friends! When I started this blog I had no idea how much I would come to enjoy writing posts, but I'm so happy I did.

Do you have any hobbies other than blogging?

Yes! I love performing and songwriting so I am looking into that sort of study for university.

What was your first ever item of makeup?

Obviously we're not talking about lipgloss here, or that hair mascara you got with your obligatory tween magazine subscription... haha
My first 'real' item of makeup was this glittery eyeshadow palette which had horrible pigmentation and I wore a nice sparkling fuchsia stripe over my eyes. I thought I was the bomb. 

Do you read any other blogs and if so, who is your favourite?

Definitely! I love reading other blogs to see what other people are writing about, to draw inspiration from their writing styles and blogging techniques. My theory is, the more you read, the easier is becomes to find your style of writing and for it to flow the way you want it to.
No firm favourites yet- but I'm always on the lookout!
