The Liebster Award

Hey guys, 

So I'm back with another tag post for you. I have been tagged in 'The Liebster Award' six times, so I thought it's time that I got round to doing it! Therefore,I'm going to pick a few questions from each set and answer them (there may be more than 11 questions, sorry guys!) 

The rules of the Liebster award are:
1. Mention the blogger who tagged you and thank them. Thank you to Imogen, SamanthaElieCharlotteElle and Claire for tagging me. They all have lovely blogs and you should definitely check them out! I'm going to try and answer a couple of questions from each, I hope that's okay, as otherwise this post would be insanely long! (Sorry guys, there may be more than 11 questions!)

2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger has asked you.
What is your favourite subject to blog about?
I'd say my favourite thing to blog about is either beauty or lifestyle. I love writing reviews and doing a monthly favourites, yet I also love writing about days out.

Are you a party animal or a home comforts kind of person?
Well, this question depends fully on how I'm feeling, but I do love a good night out, and when I'm at uni, I probably go out 2/3 times a week. However, when I'm feeling tired and drained, I do love to just chill out and binge watch a series on Netflix with a bar of chocolate.

Who / what first got you into blogging?
To be honest, I always wanted to start a blog, but never did as I never had the confidence to do so. However, one of my best friends also has a blog, and she had told me many a time to start one, so one day I just thought, what the hell, as I love to write. 

What is your greatest fear?
This was quite hard to answer, considering I hate spiders, I'm claustrophobic and have social anxiety. But probably spiders, because they are just awful.

What do you value most in life?
Family, friends and good health.

Which is your favourite season of the year and why?
My favourite season is either winter (because of Christmas, as I love Christmas sooooo much!) or summer, as even though I have horrific hayfever, I love the weather and just the fact that it's the holidays and everyone is just so positive. Plus, I do love a good Pimms, which is a summer staple.

Lipstick - matte or shiny?
Either, it completely depends on my mood, as I do love a matte red, yet also love a shiny pink.

What do you hope to achieve in the next few years?
I hope to have finished university and started a job that I love, maybe something within PR or within the media. I would also like to have travelled the world.

Rose gold - yay or nay?
Definitely yay, which blogger doesn't love a bit of rose gold, ey? Plus, it looks so pretty with neutrals such as grey or white.

Where would you like to travel to most in the world?
Either the Maldives or Seychelles, as they look so beautiful. I would also like to visit Australia and New Zealand.

What is your current favourite make-up product?
My boyfriend recently bought me the Urban Decay Naked Illuminating Powder, and it is absolutely stunning, so yeah, been loving that!

What's your happiest memory of 2016 so far?
It definitely has to be the birth of my youngest cousin, Sophia Jane. She's so gorgeous, it was lovely to have another addition to the family.

Who is your role model?
Probably my mum. I know it sounds cliche (and a tad corny), but she is definitely the one person I look up to, she's so kind and caring, and I really hope that I make her proud. If I'm anything like her when I'm older, then I'll be happy.

Morning person or night owl?
For anyone who knows me, they will know that I am definitely a night owl. You will be lucky to find me awake before noon, yet I can stay up until the early hours and be so productive.

Starter or dessert?
Ooo, think it's going to have be dessert, as I have a serious sweet tooth! My personal favourites are Eton Mess, pavlova or tiramisu. 

If you could have five celebrities over for dinner, dead or alive, who would they be?
I love this question! ! I would invite Nelson Mandela, as he would be so inspiring and so interesting to talk to. Secondly, I'd invite JK Rowling, as who wouldn't?! An incredible author and someone who would tell the most amazing stories. I'd also invite Dame Maggie Smith, as I think she would have such amazing stories about the film industry. Then probably Paul McCartney for the entertainment, as I love The Beatles' music and I loved seeing him live last year! And last, but not least, I'd pick Jack O'Connell, as, if you've read my earlier posts, you'll know that I have a tiny(!) crush on him, and when I met him he was so lovely, and talked to me about Middlesbrough and the football. So yeah, would be an interesting dinner party!

What is the best holiday you have been on in the past?
I have been very fortunate in the fact that I have been on some amazing holidays, for which I am very thankful for! It's hard to pick, but I'd say one of my favourites has to be when I went to New York and Florida with my family, as exploring the city of New York was fantastic, as visiting all the sites was just insane! And then visiting Disney and Universal was fab, as I do love a good theme park, and I'm a true Disney geek!

Sweets or chocolate?
This honestly depends on the kind of mood I'm in! I love both, with my favourites being Galaxy, Dairy Milk and Haribo.

What do you do for a living?
I study English Language at the University of Birmingham, and love it! I actually started the year doing Psychology, but really didn't like it, so switched half way through.

Favourite film?
Either Grease, Back to the Future or One Day. I also love the Breakfast Club.

What is your favourite genre of music?
I have no idea of how to describe this, maybe 'indie rock'? I love bands such as The Wombats, The Vaccines, blur and Oasis. However, I also love older music, such as The Beach Boys and The Kinks.

Savoury or Sweet foods?

Lipstick or lipgloss?

Both (am I allowed to say that?)

Do you speak any other languages? 
Well, I learnt French for 5 years at school, so I can technically speak French. However, I can't remember that much, so maybe not. 

Who is your dream date? 

As mentioned earlier, it's definitely Jack O'Connell! I loved him as Cook in Skins.
