The Liebster Award

Hello everyone! I have been nominated by the lovely Sophia Lo for the Liebster Award. Sophia writes an amazing blog about anything fashion and beauty, and I particularly enjoyed her Rainy Day Haul post (and would certainly recommend MAC’s, Velvet Teddy!).

The idea of The Liebster Award is to find out new things about blogs you follow and to discover new, upcoming blogs, so I am thrilled to have been nominated!


You must answer the 11 questions that the person that nominated you have asked.

You then create your own set of 11 questions and nominate your favourite bloggers for the award.

Tag your bloggers and wait for answers!

So here are the questions Sophia asked and I’ll try and answer as best as I can!

What is your favourite season?

I always tell people my favourite seasons are Autumn and Winter because I love being all wrapped up, snug as a bug, with a fire in the living room, a hot chocolate piled with whipped cream and marshmallows and a Christmas movie. That’s another reason… I love Christmas, it’s my favourite time of the year by far.

What is your favourite high-end makeup brand?

I have delved into the world of Nars this year, and my love for the brand has slowly been growing. My most recommended products would have to be the Nars Sheer Glow foundation and the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I use them both every time I do my makeup and they stay on all day. A definite must in my collection!

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Wow… I haven’t been asked that enough in my A2 year! But seriously, I don’t know for certain where I would like to go with my life, but I want to continue learning new things, discovering more and developing new skills. A realistic goal and the one I am headed for now? A career incorporating the Psychology degree I hope to gain at university. A dream job would be continuing to write my blog, start filming YouTube videos and turn my passion for makeup into a business with my own brand! One can dream!

If you could hop on a plane tomorrow where would you go?

This follows on from my previous answer of my dream job, as I would jet off to America or Australia, set myself up in a city with a job to pay rent and start my own brand. I have never been to either of those countries, but it is definitely on my list of things to do!

Fruit or Vegetables?

What an odd question! I like fruit because its often sweeter and some fruits can make really good smoothies, but… it is definitely easier for me to incorporate vegetables into my diet.

What is your favourite scary movie?

I’m going to cheat a little and name a TV series instead, but hands down it has got to be American Horror Story. I have seen every season, including Cult, which is out now! Some of the seasons I had to come back to, like Asylum, because the first episode freaked me out so much I didn’t want to watch anymore, so I skipped to Coven. But, I am glad I went back because they are all incredible.

Who do you look up to?

Nobody, in particular, inspires me, but I do respect people who work amazingly hard to go far and achieve their aspirations in life. They’re the kind of people I aspire to be.

Coffee or Tea?

LOVE my morning coffee, and nothing can beat a Soy Caramel Latte, but I do love a cup of tea in the evening when I’m writing my blog or doing some work for college.

What is your favourite thing to blog about?

I really enjoy writing about beauty and makeup, as this is something I am always learning about and I like to share that with you. However, I also enjoy sharing my university/A-level experiences and giving advice on things I think could be useful! On that note, I’m going to Oxford tomorrow for another Open Day and I’m very excited!

What is your favourite book?

Can I be a cliche and say The Fault in Our Stars by John Green? I like it so much, I am currently writing my English coursework around the novel and I remember why it’s my favourite. Another of my favourites is A Year Without Autumn by Liz Kessler, which I read in secondary school in roughly two days and thought it was absolutely amazing. I haven’t read it again since, but I might go ahead and do that now!

If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Perhaps, and this is slightly controversial, Katie Hopkins, because although some of what she says is outrageous, I still think she is brilliant. If not her, definitely Leonardo DiCaprio, because, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t?!

Right, the easy bit is over and now I’m going to leave my 11 questions for the following bloggers to answer:

Glitter Hearts and Fire Eyes

Life According To Jade
