The Liebster Award

Monday, September 02, 2013

Hello Beauties!!
 
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend! :)
 
I was nominated by the lovely Hanan at http://www.beautybyhanan.com/ for The Liebster Award! Check her out, she has great blog posts and she's a beauty! Thanks for nominating me hun!
 
 
What exactly is the Liebster Award? Liebster is a German word meaning favorite, dearest or beloved. The Liebster Award is a great way to raise your blog's profile and is perfect for blogs which are new or small!!
 
The Liebster Award comes with a few rules, they are as follows:
 
  1. You have to link back to the person that nominated you.
  2. You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
  3. You have to nominate another 11 bloggers who have under 200 followers to pass the award to.
  4. You have to come up with 11 other questions for your nominees.
  5. You have to notify the bloggers whom you have nominated.
  6. Some bloggers can also include 11 random facts about themselves but this is optional.
 
 
On to the questions!
 
-What is in your makeup bag right now? I carry a rather small makeup bag in my purse, so it doesn't fit much. I have a mirror, blotting sheets, lip balm, powder, the lip color I'm wearing that day, a perfume roller ball, and nail clippers.
 
-Favorite high end and budget makeup? Since this doesn't specify on a certain product, I'm going to choose a brand. My favorite high-end brand is a toss up between The Balm, Clinique, and Urban Decay. My favorite budget friendly makeup brand will go to Revlon.
 
-What is your favorite perfume? My current favorite is Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy. My favorites change with the season though.
 
-Favorite food? Hmm...I will have to go with chicken and seafood.
 
-If you were put on an island what 3 things would you take with you? That's a hard one, the beauty lover in me says, makeup, my phone/iPad, and a pillow. But let's be real, I wouldn't survive! I would bring my husband, drinking water, and a knife...
 
-Who is your favorite blogger/YouTuber? My favorite blogger and YouTuber is Emily Eddington from http://www.beautybroadcast.net/ love her reviews and tutorials, she's awesome!
 
-What has helped you on your blogging journey? I wanted to start a blog about a year ago, but I just never worked up the nerve to do so, I was too 'worried' with what people would say or think. It's so sad that we live in a world where we worry about stuff like that...anyway, my husband has helped me the most, he is so positive and always knows what to say to lift me up. I have also received great help from Julie and Ashley, from 20/30GLAM, they are so sweet!! Thank you girls for everything!
 
-What is your favorite sweet? Chocolate!!
 
-What is your favorite thing about yourself? I'm a really caring person and I also like my eyes.
 
-Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Still happily married, with kids, a successful blog, and doing some traveling.
 
-High heels or Flats? I love both, but I wear flats the most.

    2. Thank you so much for the nomination! I just recently did a Liebster Award post on my blog, so I'll post my answers here. c:


      1. What blog do you follow religiously?
      I think ViviannaDoesMakeup. I just love her posts and find her writing so eloquent and well done, and she's so interesting as well.

      2. What is your DREAM job?
      Always and forever actress. c:

      3. Your go to makeup look?
      Hmmm I don't think I have one cause I always wear a different look. BUT if I have to choose, probably a taupe brown all over the lid blended into the crease and black cat eye. I've always been a sucker for a darker, smokey blended eye.

      4. What is one beauty/fashion trend you don't like?
      Hmmm probably tooo much grunge, the sweaters tied around the waist, untied boots, holes EVERYWHERE. I like grunge, but a bit more put together.

      5. Describe yourself in 3 words...
      Stubborn, odd, sleepy.

      6. What is your signature scent?
      Perfume: Princess by Vera Wang; body spray: Vanilla from Bath & Body Works.

      7. What are 2 beauty products you CAN NOT live without?
      Mascara and concealer, forever & always.

      8. What advice would you give new bloggers?
      Well I'm fairly new myself, but I'd say to just be yourself and do what makes you happy. When I first started out, my theme and posts were meant for the masses, but I realized it didn't make me happy! I wanted to be like other bloggers which didn't set me apart, so I changed and did my own thing.

      9. If you could have a celebrity spouse for a week, who would it be?
      JUST ONE WEEK!??!? Oh gosh, I have too many celeb crushes. I think the biggest is Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

      10. Describe your blog in 3 words...
      Cozy, pale, clean.

      11. Why do you blog?
      It's a wonderful medium to find other people just as passionate about the same things as you are. It's great to find new life changing products and suggesting your own!

    11. I did a Leibster Post already, but here are my answers. So good to get to know you better sweety. :)


      1. What blog do you follow religiously? Mine! Lol no seriously, does YouTube count? It would have to be Michelle Phan, AndreasChoice, and Promise Phan. I draw my inspiration from Michelle the most.

      2. What is your DREAM job? I have four! Successful blogger, Professional singer, Maybelline Representative, and a Family and Marriage Counselor.

      3. Your go to makeup look? Mascara, waterline eye liner, and a cute peachy-nude lip gloss.

      4. What is one beauty/fashion trend you don't like? I would have to say colorful mascara. I just can't get into it!

      5. Describe yourself in 3 words... Considerate, Dreamer, and Worry-wart

      6. What is your signature scent? Oooh... That would have to be Lady Gaga's Monster

      7. What are 2 beauty products you CAN NOT live without? Mascara and chapstick!

      8. What advice would you give new bloggers? Well, I am a new blogger, lol. This is what I would tell them though, don't be afraid to show the world what you've got! Just do it! Don't ever give up on it! Follow your dreams, and work your way up. In this business, patience is definitely required.

      9. If you could have a celebrity spouse for a week, who would it be? Oooh... I have a few: Hugh Jackman in his Wolverine body lol (yum), Vin Diesel (DOUBLE yum), and Henry Cavill (Man of Steel... LAWD!)

      10. Describe your blog in 3 words... funny, passionate, and Maybelline! Lol

      11. Why do you blog? Well... I simply love make-up and being pretty. Watching Michelle Phan and all of the other YouTube make-up gurus motivated me the most because I wanted to do what they do. I don't make videos yet, but I will. After I started it, I realize how passionate I am about it. It's something that I'm actually really good at. And the best part is, I'm not afraid to do it anymore. It has built my confidence level up so much, its unbelievable.
