[Update, Unachicaandherblog has just nominated me too, March 2015! Big thank you :)]
The lovely Vogue Infatuation has nominated me for the Liebster Award, and this being my first ever award anyone has nominated me for, I am really grateful and excited :). December really marked a change for me in blogging, and I have seen the biggest uplift since I started posting more frequently with what I feel is more relevant, exciting articles. I am now posting at least 3 times a week so everyone (including me) can get their full dosage of beauty news and rambly reviews!
The rules of the award are:
…There were no rules on VI’s blog and for this I am pleased!
NOW, onto the questions :):
1. What’s three things on your bucketlist?
This is a brilliant question to begin with! OK, I would LOVE to do a skydive or bungee jump one day. I know it sounds really scary and sick inducing but I still think it would be a great experience to feel that close to…flying!
I definitely want to go to the Caribbean on a holiday (which I know isn’t much of a bucket list thing but still something I want to do!) Mostly for the sun, clear waters, palm trees and white sandy beaches…ahh one can dream.
Third thing would probably be to write my own novel. I’ve always been a keen writer and I have ALWAYS had a very active imagination! I think the hardest thing there will be discipline…but this blog is teaching me that already!
2. Craziest thing you’ve done?
I’ll be really honest here…I’m not a crazy person at all (I don’t mean mentally I mean on the kookiness scale). I think the ‘craziest’ thing I can think of is probably starting this blog! Oh and meeting Gabby from Velvetghost and ACTUALLY going up to talk to her…
3. What’s one place you would love to visit?
Ahh well I’ve already kind of answered this point in the first question! I think because of that I’ll tell you the NEXT place I want to visit. That’s India. My mum and dad are from India and I have only been once before, but I was too young to remember much other than the plane journey and probably stealing a mango from someone’s tree.
4. Best thing you have accomplished?
So far, I would say going from having completed an English Literature and Media degree, to having 2 weeks work experience and then landing a job in marketing with very little experience. Proving myself in a role like that within 1-2 years was something I was very proud of, and I hope to top that at some point too!
5. Favourite item (clothings, jewellery, etc)
At the moment, I would say that my favourite items of clothing so far are my Minnie Mouse onesie 🙂 and my navy velvet long sleeve swing dress from Boohoo that I bought before Christmas. For jewellery, I would have to say my gold ear cuff from Urban Outfitters!
6. Favourite food?
Hmm, well I have to say…I LOVE FOOD. I get excited about eating out, I often drool over Foodstagrams and I love baking as well. I think my favourite food would have to be a traditional Indian curry (made by my mum, of course) and chapattis. That, or some samosas home made with my sister’s secret recipe dip.
7. What made you start blogging?
I decided to start my own blog after I had started getting into watching a lot of Youtube tutorials. I found one of Tanya Burr’s make up tutorials one day whilst browsing, and it all went off from there really. As I’m not the most confident person in the world, I thought that a blog would be a great way to put something out there that might be of value to someone somewhere, and I just want to say I’m really grateful to anyone who visits my modest little blog!
8. Where do you hope your blog to be in five years?
This is a difficult one, as I would say my blog is really a little new born baby in the blogging world. I guess here I can only say what I would LIKE to happen. I would love to, for now, keep my blog as something I enjoy using as a way to express my opinion, but eventually I would love to expand to working with brands and becoming a more full time blogger..which I know is a pipe dream but we all have it!
9. Funniest moment you’ve had?
This is easy to think of. About 12 – 13 years ago, I was in a café with my best friend from school and her mum, and I was just about to open a sachet of ketchup to dip my chips into. I struggled with the sachet, and ended up squirting the longest line of it across the table, all the way across the floor, and right up a man’s trouser leg. He was wearing cream chinos. Yep. Stifling those hoots of laughter was seriously hard!
10. Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years I hope to maybe see myself still blogging or writing in some way, happy and probably starting a family of my own 🙂
