The Liebster Award

Hello there! This is just an extra little thing I thought I would do since the lovely Isobel nominated me for the Liebster Award. The low down on the Liebster Award is that it's a small tag type thing that is going around the smaller blogs at the moment and it's a nice way to learn more about each other since we have to answer 11 questions about ourselves. So thank you Isobel for tagging me and thank you to anyone who reads!

Here are the rules: 
1. Link the blog that nominated you for the award.
2. Choose 11 bloggers to nominate who have less than 200 followers.
3. Answer 11 questions given to you. 
4. Let people who you have nominated know you have done so.
5. You can't nominate the person who has nominated you.
6. Create 11 questions for the people you nominated to answer.
7. You must follow the blog that nominated you. 

Here are the questions I have to answer:
1.Why did you start your blog
I started my blog because I became obsessed with reading other people's blogs and kept thinking about how I would review different products and imagining outfit posts. Basically I wanted a piece of the action.
2.Where are you from?
I'm from the North West of England. More specifically Manchester and more specifically than that, a town just south of Manchester called Stockport. I've lived here my whole life and it doesn't seem as though I'm leaving anytime soon.
3. Favourite music artist/s?
My favourite artist is a singer-song writer called David Ford. He's rather unknown but he can write a damn good tune and his lyrics are so clever. My favourite band is the Gaslight Anthem who I have seen live. They are a rock band but it's really easy listening as in it's not too loud and they actually sing the songs which are really catchy. However if I'm being totally honest, on a daily basis I mainly listen to musical soundtracks. 
4. What did you/do you want to be?
I have little idea what I want to do. All I know is that I want it to be something to do with design. Possibly interior design, maybe fashion design. Theatre set design has also popped into my head on numerous occasions. There's too much choice and my head feels like it's going to explode every time I think about the future. I'm such a together person. 
5. Have you dyed your hair before?
I died my hair a veerrryy long time ago and it was an 8 week type thing and it looked exactly like my normal hair colour. I wouldn't mind some temporary colour in the form of hair chalks though as this seems like very little upkeep and I am supremely lazy. 
6. Favourite make-up brand?
I had to actually come back to this question after answering the rest because it is such a hard question. One I don't actually think I can answer. I have such a range of products from many different brands. For example I probably like Revlon the most for lip products but I don't own any of their foundations. My favourite foundation is from Estee Lauder but I haven't tried any other products. But if I HAD to choose I might say Rimmel because it's an oldie but a goodie. It was one of the first makeup brands I got in to and I've tried something from each section like mascara, eyeliner, foundation, blusher, lipsticks and nail varnish and they've never let me down really. I'd say its the most reliable low end brand. 
7. The worst food ever?
Tomatoes. I bloody hate tomatoes. The look, the texture, anything to do with tomatoes (unless its the sauce on top of pizza, yum!)
8. Heels or flats?
I'm gonna be difficult and say neither... or both. Somewhere in the middle. I like a bit of height but I don't like tottering around on skyscrapers all day. Shoes with a heel like the Vagabond Dioon shoes I featured in my wishlist post here are the perfect height for me.
9. Do you have a special talent?
I wouldn't say it's a talent but I really enjoy doing accents or impersonating people. Also pulling weird faces.
10. What was your favourite subject at school?
At high school I would probably have to say textiles. My best friend was in the class with me and it was something I felt I was good at. In college it would have to be sociology. My teacher was Irish, not to mention a total dish. I had that class for an hour everyday... it was a good two years.  
11. What's your favourite city? If you have one. 
I'm gonna be a walking, talking cliche right now and say New York or Paris. I have visited both and there's something amazing about them. It's like I feel like a different person when I'm there. I would happily go back to either of them tomorrow. 

And now for my 11 questions:
1.What is the meaning behind your blog name?
2.Do you prefer high end or low end makeup brands?
3.Who is your girl makeup crush? (celebrity/guru whose makeup you wish you could have/copy)
4. What is your favourite tv programme?
5.What is your most treasured item? (doesn't have to be beauty/fashion related).
6. If you could move to anywhere in the world, where would it be?
7. If you could eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
8. Have you ever broken a bone?
9.If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you'd buy?
10. What was your first word?
11. Are you a cat or a dog person

Now its my turn to tag 11 people
