Liebster Award

The lovely Vicky from Coeur d'or has chosen me for the Liebster Award, and I'd like to thank her very much!
Basically, if you're tagged you have to write 11 things about yourself, and then answer the 11 questions from the blogger who tagged you. You then choose other bloggers with less than 200 followers that you want to get to know, and choose your own 11 questions you'd like to ask them :) 

11 things about me:
1.I spent the first few years of my life living in the Lake District, before moving 'up north'
2.I also lived in Portugal for four months, and went to school there for a little while.
3.I love drawing and painting, it's something I don't spend enough time doing.
4.I love romantic films, Titanic is my fave, I can watch it over and over and still be sobbing my heart out when Jack dies.
5.I'm weirdly interested in world disasters and conspiracy theories, Titanic, 9/11, the Moon landings, 2012, I find it so interesting to think the truth is probably being hidden from us
6.I'm a massive cynic with strong opinions and could argue my way out of anything
7.I seem to be cold all the time, brrr, so one of my dreams is to move to a hot country
8.My favourite past-time is shopping, online, in store, anywhere!
9.I think I'm doing the wrong course at Uni, and plan on changing come October. There's way too much pressure to choose a career/uni course when you're young, and I'm one of those people who still doesn't know what I want to do with my life..
10.I love animals, and once stopped in the street to lay a flower down next to a dead bird haha, may you rest in peace!
11.I'm a teeny 5"2, with the upper body strength of a kitten

Vicky's questions
1.Which part of blogging do you enjoy the most?
Probably when I get an idea of something I want to blog about, and I get all excited typing about it haha. Or when someone comments on a post and you know they've enjoyed reading what you have to say.
2.What's the first thing you would buy on a sale?
Staple items like jeans. Or in a Summer sale I'd buy some winter clothes for the coming months.
3.Your favourite fashion/beauty magazines are?
Cosmopolitan and Vogue
4.Which is the first book you read in your life?
Ooh I'm not sure, I had a lot of books read to me as child but I can't remember the first one I read alone. I used to loooove the Sleepover Club books haha.
5.If you had to wear only one colour to the rest of your life, what would it be?
Red :)
6.Your favourite song at the moment is...
Hmm, it's not a new one, but Bright Eyes - First day of my life, it's beautiful, you can listen to it here
7.If you had a free air plane ticket, which destination would you choose and why?
New York! At one point I would have chosen Los Angeles, Hollywood is my dream and the thought of constant sunshine and all the glamour is amazing, but recently I've been craving a trip to The Big Apple, so much history, shopping, culture, it has everything
8.What kind of clothes do you like buying and why?
Any haha! I'm loving maxi dresses at the moment, they're just so versatile and you can get the prettiest designs. I'm also getting more into vintage clothes.
9.What's your secret hobby?
I love doing volunteer work! I've helped out for various charities, done sponsored swims, coffee evenings etc, and I volunteered as a Brownie Guide helper for two years.
10.If you have to buy only one beauty product, what would it be?
Mascara all the way. If I could only wear one beauty product for the rest of my life this would be it
11.If you had the possibility to meet your favourite blogger, what would you tell her/him?
Oh wow, I'd just congratulate them on their success, and tell them how much I love reading their blog and to keep going with it to be honest

My 11 questions for you:
1. What is your number one beauty tip?
2. What do you do in your spare time?
3. Why did you first start blogging?
4. What's your favourite film?
5. Summer or Winter?
6. What would your ideal job be?
7. If you could live anywhere in the World, where would it be?
8. What's your favourite food?
9. If you could choose any person, alive or dead, to meet, who would it be?
