Liebster Award

Why hello again, how very nice to see you on this fine, fine day. I must admit that we would have seen each other sooner, as if any of you follow me on twitter you will know that this is attempt number 3 at getting this post to you!
Yes my friends as I am currently in the process of moving back home for a while, finding time to actually sit down and write is getting increasingly difficult. However that finally happened the other night. I'd made my nightly hot chocolate, grabbed my shape yogurt (my current addiction...my God they actually taste like apple crumble!)and snuggled down to write. I'm not going to lie sometimes I'm not the brightest bulb in the bunch and I am easily confused. This therefore did not help when trying to figure out how to create this post as it required a bit of prep. Needless to say though that after several hours the prep was complete and the post had been born. Full of witty antidotes and clever clogs answers (that I have no hope of ever remembering) and at 1am on Friday night, my masterpiece was about to be born! Like Baron Frankenstein watching in awe as my creation bursts into the world I excitedly hovered my cursor over the publish button and....nothing it had disappeared!
You may now be muttering to yourself about pressing the save button while writing, saving to draft and making a copy. Well my clever friend I did indeed do all of those important things and every single precaution failed me! I feel like one of those poor devils on Jeremy Kyle who mutter that infamous phrase 'but the condom broke'. The world had officially failed me.
Needless to say I did what every mature now 22 year old would do in this situation...threw a massive hissy fit and went to bed.
So now that I've shared my terribly, traumatic experience with you all I feel you may be wondering why this post was so important. Well I will tell you. I have recently had the honour of being nominated by the lovely Lauren and Claire from Stylingo  ( If you've not checked them out yet then why not? They are not only fabulously insightful into the world of beauty/fashion and witty to the boot, or should I say perfectly chunky heel? But they have me giggling my pants off and rushing to buy my next bargain purchase in the same breath!)for a very exciting award called 'The Leibster Award'.
Now what is the Leibster award I hear you say. Well it is a brilliant way to discover and help fellow 'new' bloggers. And let's face it helping each other out is what its all about really. (excuse the rhyme)
The rules are as follows:
  • Answer the 11 questions by the nominator.
  • Choose 11 fellow bloggers (with less then 200 followers) and link them in your post.
  • Create your own 11 questions you'd like them to answer.
  • Inform them of their nomination.
  • No tag backs!
So here it goes:
1. Would you rather have lipstick on your teeth or your skirt tucked into your pants – and WHY?
Definitely lipstick on my teeth as, as a lipstick obsessive this happens to me quite often. The next big beauty trend? No?
2. Where is your favourite place to blog?
In bed whilst blasting out show tunes or a bit of vintage Bowie. Apparently this is the best way to get my creative juices a flowing.
3. Would you rather have a shaved head or have to dress like Dobby the house elf for 6 months?
Dobby the house elf, I've always thought he was a highly fashionable fellow. Although maybe I could be allowed tights if not to keep me toasty then to protect my modesty as that shirts awfully short the kinky little Devil ;)
4. If you had £5000, what would you buy?
A lot of Tom Ford make-up, Jeffrey Campbell Coltrane's and a little holiday for my Pops (aren't I nice, he'd be taking me with him though of course. I'm not that nice!)
5. What is your favourite bargain product?
At the moment it has to be Primark's Argan Oil for £2.50 this baby is a life saver for my frizzy hair, oh and MUA lipsticks of course!
6. If you had to dye your hair an unnatural colour, what would it be and why?
Lilac! Which is actually happening tomorrow but only dip dyed. I'd like to do it all over lilac and I've always wanted my hair white blonde. So maybe a mixture of the two?
7. What’s worse – war or corduroy trousers?
War! I must admit I'm a fan of a man in a pair of Corduroy trousers. Must be the Dr.Who geek within me.
8. Do you ever worry you have a moustache?
Not really, it worked for Tom Selleck.
9. What is your preferring snack and/or beverage whilst blogging?
Coffee, coffee and more coffee! I'm obsessed, preferably from Starbucks but a girl can't be that picky. I also currently have a thing for strawberry pencils.
10. Who is the most annoying celebrity in your opinion and why?
Katie Price. Do I really need to explain?
11. What do you have for breakfast on a normal day?
Every morning I have a coffee with almond milk and a cereal bar. ATM it's been the blueberry biscuit moment's by Special K.
Now for the people I nominate:

My 11 question to you lovely lot:
  1. Do you enjoy any non beauty/fashion related blogs? If so what type?
  2. How did you get into blogging?
  3. You can only use one for the rest of your life which do you choose...Twitter or Facebook?
  4. It's payday do you buy a few cheaper products or splurge on a single luxury purchase?
  5. Shoes or handbags?
  6. What sort of music do you prefer to listen to while blogging?
  7. Favourite trend of 2013 so far?
  8. Is there a certain trend you love but cannot pull of yourself?
  9. What is the beauty item that you could not live without ?
  10. Favourite season fashion wise? Do you prefer wrapping up in winter or flashing a bit of skin in the summer?
  11. Who is your ultimate fashion icon?
So once again it is finally here, the time to press that precious 'publish' button. Now I hope you enjoyed this post. I would like to take this time to thank Claire and Lauren from Stylingo for nominating me and for generally being awesome, they are honestly so lovely. I can't tell you how brilliant I think this idea is, I've loved discovering new blogs through out my preparation for this post.
