SHOUTOUTS

IMG_0352Hey guys! Lately I’ve been absolutely loving discovering new blogs, and sharing my love of fellow bloggers, even if it’s just through a really quick #FF! So today, I thought I’d dedicate this entire post to you guys. My readers, and fellow bloggers.

Since my giveaway has officially closed, I still wanted there to be a fun ongoing event on my blog, so today I’m officially kicking off a shoutout week! For the next 7 days, I will be giving a daily shoutout to a fellow online creator/blogger, on my Facebook page, Twitter and blog posts.

If you’d like a shoutout, all you have to do is drop me a little comment below with a link to your blog, or ‘like’ this post and each day for the next week, I’ll pick someone for the day!

Thank you guys so much for reading, I know I get ridiculously soppy and weird about it, but I really do appreciate it, you guys make this whole thing even more awesome than I ever thought it would be.


 

I hope you guys liked this random post, don’t forget to stay tuned for Blogmas, which officially kicks off here on Tuesday December 1st!

Is It Awards Season?

Well well well. I can no longer simply be grateful, I’ve got to make an entire post on this topic. Over the last week I’ve been nominated for 4 blogging awards. That’s insane. Thing like this simply reminds me just how much I was looking forward to upon entering the blogging community.fotor080711573

Everyone is so supportive and loves to cheer each other on; something that I love in people. So today I am finally thanking everyone that nominated me, answering the questions and giving my nominations too!


The Fashionista Award

I was nominated by the lovely Kimberley at Kimmykeepreal for this award, so a major shoutout to her, I love her blog and the real life topics that she writes about. So without further adieu I’ll get into these questions!

What motivated you to start blogging?

As I’ve already slightly touched upon in the beginning of this post, and some previous posts, I was motivated to get started because of the real sisterhood that blogging radiates. In fact, I loved everything about it, the writing and general creating, getting to know people and having an online documentation of my progress. The only thing that ever held me back was deciding a name!

Favourite Movies?

Deja Vu, I will never tire of that movie. I also really enjoy Coraline and The Great Gatsby.

What is your dream career?

I would love to be a television presenter. But hey if we’re talking far out dreams I’d like to be Beyonce.

Top wish list items at the moment?

A Lay-Z Spa Miami and a sofa.

Favourite TV shows?

Family Guy, QI, and any Derren Brown shows.

What stores do you find yourself shopping at the most? 

New Look and Primark primarily for clothes. I’ve also been gravitating more towards TK Maxx, House Of Fraser, Boots and Superdrug, but that’s for my home-ware and beauty fixes.

Favourite fashion designers?

House of Deréon, Chanel, VS

What is your dream vacation?

Either educational like Japan, or entirely relaxation like Greece.

What are your goals for your blog?

Simply to be honest, be myself and continue to create content that I am proud of. While also discovering new people and making even more friends.


The Premio Dardos Award

I was nominated for the next 3 awards by the gorgeous Felicia from Beginnerbeaute so another major shoutout to her and her blog! She’s so kind hearted and lovely, you’ll wonder what you were reading before discovering her blog!

This award is very simple, but absolutely wonderful to be nominated for. In simple terms, the award means:

The Premio Dardos Award exists to acknowledge the values that every blogger shows in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

So again, thank you so much Felicia, it really means a lot to be associated with this award.


Versatile Blogger Award

Ok for this award I have to share 10 interesting facts about myself, and like always, I cannot think of 10 on the spot. So here goes nothing!

1. I find it very difficult to determine if a fact about me is indeed suitable to be deemed ‘interesting’

2. I adore orange rex bunnies.

3. I am very sure that my friends are the best in the world, and am willing to fight to prove that fact.

4. My favourite subjects at A-Level were Psychology and RS

5. I can play every instrument known to man.

6. Sometimes I lie when telling facts about myself.

7. I love Hall & Oates and Genesis

8. Death Note is the only anime I have ever watched

9. I love Halloween

10. At one point in my life I wore roughly 50 bracelets on one arm. Daily.


The Beauty Blogger Award

You step into Sephora/drugstore, what section do you rush for?

Urban Decay. I cannot get enough of every product. Though I do also like to spend some time around the Chanel section.

What is your favourite summer makeup product?

My favourite year-round product is eyeliner. But waterproof in the summer.

What is a makeup product/trend you are looking forward to for the fall?

Dark Lips.

If you had your own beauty line that consisted of one beauty product, which product would it be?

Either eyeliner or lipsticks.

What is your favourite summer-fall transition nail polish colour?

I’m a white or light pink nails all-year-round girl.

What is your favourite summer pedicure colour?

Lighter colours for summer, darker for winter.

Summer eye shadows, shimmer or matte?

I’d prefer shimmer over matte for summer, but shimmer is also perfect around the holiday season!

Bold lip, or ‘my lips but better’ for everyday wear?

My lips but better for everyday. Bold for evenings.

 What is your opinion on the strobing trend, and do you ‘participate’ in this trend?

I have only just heard about this trend. I’m all for it if people are enjoying doing it, I myself would give it a go but I’m more of an eye-makeup person as opposed to a full face.


And finally that’s it! Thank you again to Kimberley and Felicia for nominating me, you’re both amazing and so sweet to do so!

My nominations are:

Fit and Bliss

Confetti and Curves

Rylie*Style

Two Little Owls Blog

A Girl Named Egypt
