Liebster Awards 2014

Thought I'd treat you to this little image I took in the summer from St Peter Port Town in Guernsey.

I've been tagged by the lovely Mel of It's Me Mel in the Liebster Awards. I haven't been nominated for awhile now and I also haven't written a post this year yet, so m double lay excited about this post! So, I'll stop waffling now, here we go!

Mels Liebster Award Q's:

1. What is your must have beauty cosmetic that you cannot go without?
Concealer, I don't go out the house without it! Currently I'm loving the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, although I do have to mix two shades for it to match my skin tone.

2. What is your favourite thing to do in your spare time?
Apart from blogging, I dance. I have done since I was about four and I just love it.

3. Do you have any pets?
Not at the moment. I used to have quite a lot, it was like a mini zoo in my room, but not anymore. I miss having cats though, I really want a cat.

4. What do you want to be when you're older?
This is a really hard one as I still struggle to plan what to do at the weekend, let alone the rest of my life! I have always been interested in fashion so maybe I'd like to go down that career path.

5. What is your favourite topic to blog about?
I love doing outfit posts. I really enjoy creating outfits and picking locations for outfit shoots. Doing silly poses for the camera is fun too!

6. Got anything special/exciting happening this year?
I've actually got a little holiday to England planned. I haven't left the island for over a year so I'm really excited to get off the rock! I'm going to have a whale of a time shopping and seeing McBusted live! I've been waiting to see Busted live since I was about six so I will apologise now for the inevitable fan-girling that will follow this concert.

7. How did 2013 treat you?
It wasn't a bad year, but it could of gone better. It was very eventful and a year of so much change so I'm hoping for a more settled year.

8. Did you have a nice Christmas and New Year?
Yes I did, thank you! I hope you had a fabulous day.

9. Mineral or liquid foundation?
Liquid. I rarely use mineral foundation as I feel liquid gives a better coverage.

10. What skincare do you use and how often a day do you use it?
I use two face washes, the Bioré Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser twice a day and Clean & Clear exfoliating daily wash once a day. Then, to moisturise, I apply the Burt's Bee's Radiance Day Cream.

11. (Linked with question 10) Does it work for you and would you recommend it? What skin type is it for?
I would say that the two face washes, which I believe are suitable for all skin types, are fairly average, though they do leave my skin feel soft. My skin does appear cleaner with the Bioré cleanser but it could be better. I really struggle finding face washes that really work for me and I'm always on the look out for something new to try so any recommendations are very welcome. The Burt's Bee's day cream, however, is a beautiful product. It's light consistency and gentle scent applies smoothly on the skin and leaves it feeling soft and moisturised. I would definitely recommend it.

Thank you so much Mel for nominating me, I really love doing posts like this as I feel like I'm writing something that I know someone actually wants to read rather than worrying about if anyone will be interested in what I have to say. So, again, thank you Mel! Check out her blog, she's amazing!
