The Sunshine Award!

Hello lovelies,

So this is a first for me, I've been nominated for a blogger award! I had seen these floating around but never really knew much about them, so I did a little bit of research into what the Sunshine Award is really about.

According to one site, the Sunshine Award is for “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. I want to say a huge thank you to Ebony Jay from EbonyJay Beauty My Way, it's such a honour to know that others enjoy reading my blog and I never imagined that anyone would feel creatively inspired by me!

The Rules
1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger.
2. Share 11 random facts about yourself.
3. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you.
4. List bloggers (8-12) that you believe deserve some recognition and a  little blogging love, usually newer or up-and-coming blogs.
5. Write 11 questions for them to answer in their award post
6. Let all the bloggers know that they've been nominated

  • What do you think makes you different from other bloggers?
  • I wouldn't say I was necessarily different from anyone. I write about beauty and that's what I share with those of you who read my blog. I just hope my personality and my honesty comes across in my writing. I like to review products that you don't see much of and I try not to follow the trends.

  • Was there ever a time you thought about quitting?
  • I did! I think I did two or three posts and then life took over... But now no, I enjoy it so much and really feel like I'm just becoming a member of the blogging community.

  • What time of day do you find yourself blogging the most?
  • I don't really have a set schedule, I should try to set a day per week aside but I just blog when I feel like it. There's nothing worse than feeling like you've to blog when you just lack any inspiration.

  • What is your favorite makeup essential?
  • I've said for years that I can't do liquid eyeliner and now I wouldn't be without it.

  • What do you think you could do to make your blog better?
  • I would like to have a complete blog design. I don't understand these html codes and I doubt I ever will, I would love to be able to ask someone to do it all for me.

  • What music are you obsessed with at the moment?
  • I really do love a mixture of music, I can't stop listening to Gabrielle Aplin and Arctic Monkeys.

  • What do you do when you can't think of anything to write about?
  • I tend to have a look and read other blog posts, sometimes I'll spot a product that I've had for ages and continually use but have bypassed it for a review.

  • What was the first beauty product you ever used?
  • I have no idea! Probably shampoo but I think my first makeup was a Miss Sporty Foundation that made me look orange.

  • What is your hair texture like?
  • It's fine but there's a lot of it. 

  • What was your first blog post ever about?
  • My first blog post was just a little bit of an introduction about me and what I wanted this blog to be. I still don't feel like I've reached exactly how I would like it, but it's a work in progress.

  • Do you have an iPhone or an android? 
  • I have three phones... and no I'm not a drug dealer. They're all android and used for whichever country I'm in. I'm the one who stands there pulling different phones out their bag trying to work out which one is ringing.
