Hi everyone! Today's post is about the Liebster Award! This award is for bloggers with under 200 followers and is to help new blogs to be discovered and to create a wider community for those new bloggers! 

So first of all I would like to thank @Rebecka so much for nominating me for this award! This is the first time I've been nominated so I'm so excited! And please go and check out Rebeckas blog as she is also fairly new and has a lovely blog! So to begin with here are the rules!


1. You must link back to the person that nominated you.

2. You must answer the 11 Liebster questions given to you by the nominee before you.

3. You must pick 11 bloggers to be nominated for the award with under 200 followers.

4. You must come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.

1)  If you had to pick one blogging or vlogging?
For now I chose blogging as I can be extremely camera shy and I'm not an amazing speaker as I tend to either talk to fast or make no sense at all!

2) What is your fashion must have?
For this summer I have been loving my black kimono from MissGuided as it goes with every outfit I've worn this summer and its a great way to add layers for colder days!

3) What is your best beauty secret?
One of my favourite things to do to intensify the colour of an eyeshadow is to slightly dampen your eyeshadow brush then apply the eyeshadow! Also this works great if you've run out of liquid eyeliner!

4) What is the beauty product/thing that you suck at?
Contouring! There's something about my face, but as much as I try to contour, I can never seem to make it look good! 

5) Face makeup or eye makeup
I really enjoy creating new eye make up looks but I prefer applying face make up and trying out new products to find the mot flawless look I can achieve!

6) What makeup and fashion item could you not live without?
My make up item I couldn't live without is my collection 2000 concealer! I love this and it applies enough coverage on good skin days! And my fashion item I could not live without is my collar necklaces as they dress up any outfit.

7) If you had £3,000 would you spend it on fashion or beauty?
Oh god this is tough, I have so much make up but I could buy endless amounts but I really need new clothes! So I probably would go with fashion as much as I would love to spend it ALL on beauty.

8) If you could have anyones wardrobe who would it be?
Any of you watch 90210? I am in love with Annie's fashion! Every outfit she wears I adore.

9) If you could only ever own one makeup brand which brand would it be?
I would probably pick M.A.C but bobbi brown is also up there!

10) What inspired you to make a blog  
I've been watching YouTube videos for a while now and I've always wanted to make a YouTube account but I don't have the confidence yet! But I am in love with shaaanxo, zoella and Tanyaburr!

11) If you had any advise to someone wanting to start a blog what would it be?
My advise would be to not question yourself whether to make a blog or not. At first I was really sceptical about the whole idea but i then decided that blogging is a great way to give my opinions about products and the best part about it is it is your own blog and you can do whatever you'd like with it! And I have never looked back and I am so glad I created this blog! I have had some amazing feedback!

1. What inspired you to start blogging?
2. If you could only have one would it be mascara or lipstick?
3. What is your favourite make up brand?
4. What is your dream job?
5. Do you prefer fashion or beauty?
6. Do you prefer a more natural or made up look?
7. Who are your favourite bloggers?
8. Do you have any tips for new bloggers?
9. What make up item can you not leave the house without?
10. What's your favourite nail polish brand?
11. If you had £1,000 to spend on one make up brand what would it be?

Hello lovelies! So sorry I haven't posted in a while and welcome to my new followers! Hope you all have enjoyed your summer, it's gone by too fast! So as we're coming into autumn over here in the UK I thought I'd create a warm bronzed copper eye make up look that would be perfect for those autumn days. The majority of the products used are drugstore products but I will also link cheaper alternatives to the products used that are more high end for those within a budget!

Here are the products I used for this eye make up look.

Benefit Bad Gal eyeliner - £16 (benefit eye bright shown in picture! Oops)
17 Cream Eyeshadow Pen - £4 - £5 (bought in a set of 3)
Maybelline colour tattoo in permanent taupe - £4.99
MUA Eyeshadow palette in Heaven and Earth - £4
Estée Lauder duo eyeshadow in Raisins - £23 - DUPE - No7 eyeshadow iridescent purple - £8
Max factor false lash effect - £10.99

First of all I applied the colour tattoo all over my lid to act as a base to make it last, I also put this under my lower lash line. I then took the darker shade of the 17 eyeshadow cream which is a dark copper colour with a tint of brown and placed this in the centre of my eyelid and below the colour tattoo on my lower lash line.

 Then I took the darker shade in my Estée Lauder duo and placed this over the 17 cream eyeshadow to intensify the colour. After this I took the bottom left colour from the MUA palette and placed this to the areas where the colour tattoo was placed. I then took the darkest brown in the MUA palette and placed this in my crease and blended out with a crease brush. I then blended all the colours together to get rid of any harsh lines and applied my favourite eyeliner and mascara, and then applied the top left colour in my MUA palette to my tear duct and under my brow to act as a highlighter!

I hope you enjoyed this short tutorial! If I didn't make it clear enough please do comment below! I'm not the best at explaining things! And if you do recreate this look please feel free to tweet me the pictures! What will be your go to make up look this autumn? 

Much love,

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been a while since I last posted. Really need to get back into blogging! To get back into things I thought I would show you a few things that's on my August wish list! 

Topshop - Neon Orange Bag - £30 (out of stock)

I've heard so many great things about this mouse bronzer universal by Chanel and it has been around for a while now! Has said to give a natural looking tan to the face without being cakey and too orange. I know it's still summer but I love leather jackets and they're great to change up an outfit! This one from dorothy perkins is a great length and i love the double zip detail at the front. These rings are simple but look so good and you can use the thinner rings as knuckle rings. The bobbi brown creamy concealer has been on my wish list for a long time now, has said to cover up under eye circles like a dream, which I unfortunately suffer from so I need this stuff in my life! This gorgeous neon bag is great for summer and I am in love with the colour! A great way to add some colour to a dull outfit! Nude nails are in for this summer and I'm dying to try out this Barry M nail polish in Lychee. I have purchased the L'oreal Cleansing water and if you would like a full review please comment below! 

I hope you enjoyed this short yet simple post! What's on your August wish list and have you tried any of these products/items?
