Ive been nominated!

Hello my beauties! I hope you're all well, and have enjoyed a nice weekend. The whether today has been almost perfect! Besides nursing a hangover from hell, I enjoyed some family time this weekend which is a rare occurrence being as I work so much, but as some of you may know I have had a week off work (which ends tomorrow boo!!) 

Anyhow, thanks the the beautiful Annabelle from Annabee Beauty I have been nominated for The Liebster Award - how cool!! I've previously heard bits and bobs about the award but since being nominated I have done some research. 

So for anyone reading this thinking 'What the hell is she on about?!' The Liebster Award is almost like a chain letter, passed throughout the internet for Bloggers to interact with each other, promote each other and provides a good read!! There are a few simple rules that you need to follow to conduct this though, which are as follows ...

  2. You must state 11 facts about yourself.
  3. You must answer the 11 questions given to you, from your nominator. 
  4. You must nominate other bloggers, and set 11 questions for them to answer.
  5. You can't nominate the person who nominated you.
  6. You must tell the people you've nominated them, so they can take part!

So, lets get the ball rolling and dish the dirt, 

11 Facts About Me;
  1. I am an Qualified Beauty Therapist, Spray Tannest, Nail Technician and Makeup Artist.   
  2. I live on an Island to the South East of Kent in the UK (yes and actual Island, we're surrounded by water and boats!!) 
  3. I am slightly obsessed with Twitter and Instagram (sorry, not sorry!) 
  4. In May I am going to Tenerife for my first ever holiday abroad.
  5. I have been asked to be my best friends birthing partner - I cried!!

  7. I am involved with a lot of charity work and have my second event planned for this year. 
  8. I am a Support Worker for Adults with Learning Disabilities which has also opened a lot of interesting doors for me, including Training in First Aid, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Sign Language, Breakaways and many many more!  
  9. I often doubt my sexuality when Beyonce is mentioned (she is perfection!!) 
  10. I enjoy 'reality' TV too much, TOWIE, Geordie Shore, Teen Mom, Big Brother just to name a few. 
  11. I am learning to drive and have just recently booked my theory test (keep your fingers crossed for me, I'll need it! 

Now for the questions that Annabelle has nominated me to answer . . . 

What is your favourite skincare product? 
I'm a huge fan of exfoliators, I have a really greasy T-zone but the rest of my face is always so dry and flakey, its sometimes hard to control no matter how much I exfoliate or moisturise I can never seem to hide from the fact my skin is awful, so on top of my day to day skin care routine, I come across this amazing product which to me is literally sent from heaven called Gommage Exfoliant by the French company Sothys. It's literally perfection. You apply it like a face mask onto dry skin, wait until it dries and then use your hands to rub in a downwards motion, its not a pleasant sight - trust me! but every single bit of dry skin or nastiness just rubs away! and you're left with the most intense fresh face you'd experience! I'd recommend time and time again!!

If you could only use 3 make-up products for a week, which 3 would you choose? 
This is really easy for me, being in a job that is so demanding, makeup isn't a main priority to me, I save it more for time off or weekends. I'd hands down pick my Foundation firstly, because I have really bad skin, whether its a break out or just the fact I suffer from red patches, secondly I'd pick my Eyebrow Palette, I have horrendous eyebrows and draw them on daily, with or without makeup I will not leave the house with at least my Eyebrows drawn on and thirdly a lipstick! I have such a huge collection of Lipsticks and I love trying out big, bright colours.

If you could steal one celebrity's wardrobe, whose would it be? 
You know what, I wouldn't? I'm comfortable with my style as it is, being a Plus Sized woman has its downfalls in the Fashion world, so I'd love there to be more choice for us Curvy women but there's not one celebrity thats Fashion sense stands out to me, I'd happily pick things here and there from a variety of Celebrities but over all, I'm happy with my own Wardrobe. 

What is your dream job? (Or, if you already have it, what is it?) 
Deep down I have always wanted to be a Midwife, I went to college and studied my A-Levels to apply for University but I dropped out halfway through because of personal reasons. I don't think I was ready, its such a demanding job, and I found out throughout training its not all cute babies and happiness, which I was aware of from the start but personally felt as though I wasn't mentally ready. I'm going to start the process again in a few years - I won't give up. For now though, I love my job, its very demanding but so much fun!!

One gadget/piece of tech you couldn't live without? 
Hands down its got to be my iPhone! I take it everywhere with me, I have loads of apps, photographs, music ... its my life in a brick - haha!!

What is your favourite TV show? 
Believe it or not, I don't have much time on my hands because of work but when I can I love watching TV, I wouldn't say I had one show I loved the most but I love Eastenders, TOWIE, Hollyoaks, Geordie Shore, The Big Bang Theory and Stella.

List 3 of your favourite colours. 
Black
Green
White

Best book you've ever read? 
Katie Piper - Beautiful

Are you a bath person, or a shower person? 
I only have a Bath, so of course I prefer a Shower as I don't have one, I think we all want what we haven't got in that sense but you can't beat a good soak in a hot bubble bath! 

Would you rather go on a a) relaxing beach holiday, b) active/adventure holiday, c) cultural/arty/foody holiday, or d) winter sports holiday? 
Again, work related I'd have to say a relaxing beach holiday for the pure fact I never get to relax!

What is your favourite thing about blogging? 
For me, its all down to being myself and making friends. I feel as though I can sit down with a cup of coffee, listen to my music and just type ... I have met some amazing people from blogging and I look forward to meeting many more.
