The Liebster Award!

This is the second time round I've been lucky enough to be asked to do this but I enjoyed it so much the first time I thought why not do it again! Zoe over at Zoesque nominated me; she runs a brill beauty and lifestyle blog so you should check her out (I particularly like this post where she has put together a really cool 60's inspired tutorial).

If you're not familiar with the 'liebster award' its basically a fun way to discover new blogs. The rules are as follows:
  1. Answer the questions you've been asked.
  2. Choose more bloggers to nominate (must have under 200 followers).
  3. Ask those bloggers a set of 11 new questions.
  4. Contact the bloggers to let them know they've been nominated!
So Zoe, here are my answers! 
  1. What made you start your blog?
    I had been reading blogs for ages before finally deciding to start up my own. I guess I was just inspired by others!
  2. What is your holy-grail product that you couldn't live without?
    Concealer! I could not be without my trusty concealer: it works wonders.
  3. What is your favourite season fashion-wise?
    Autumn/winter. I love dark colours and coseying up with a big jumper.
  4. Is there one style icon (past or present) that you would love to meet?
    Zoe Deschanel! I don't think I really dress like her but I absolutely adore her style. She's so cute and quirky.
  5. What would your idea be of a perfect evening?
    A night in with my boyfriend drinking whiskey, eating cheesey garlic bread and watching movies (rock and roll, I know).
  6. How would you describe your style?
    I wouldn't say I have a 'style'. I'd love to be stylish and fashionable but in all honesty I just chuck on whatever I think looks ok at the time.
  7. If you could only wear make up on one part of your face: eyes, lips, or face - which would you choose?
    I'd definitely choose face make up. I'm quite insecure about my skin.
  8. If you could live in any country other than the one you're in, where would you choose?
    I think I'd live in Vancouver. I have a lot of family there and it just looks so beautiful.
  9. Are there any books that you could read over and over and still love?
    Oh there are so many, I'm such a book worm. My old favourite is 'The Perks of Being  a Wallflower'.
  10. Who has inspired you the most during your time blogging?
    I've always loved
    DizzyBrunette3 but recently I've started reading blogs that aren't necessarily beauty focused (I absolutely love GingerGirlSays). 
Now for my set of questions! 
  1. If you could live in another time/decade when would it be and why?
  2. Which would you rather be: really hot or really cold?
  3. Who is your favourite band/musician?
  4. How would you sum up your blog in three words?
  5. What's your favourite quote?
  6. If a song had to be played to sum you up, what would it be?
  7. What's your favourite book?
  8. Heels or flats?
  9. If you could have any accent in the world, what would it be?
  10. What item could you not live without?
  11. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
