The Liebster Award

Well hello there. I have recently been nominated by Megan Hayes to do the Liebster Award. I had no idea what this was so I took to the internet and found out it's a kind of tag for smaller bloggers ( like me and Megan). This way we might get noticed a little bit more :)

Thank and link the person who nominated you.
Answer the questions given by the nominator.
Nominate 11 small blogs (under 200 followers) who you think deserve this award.
Create 11 new questions for the nominees to answer.
Notify nominees via social media/ blogs.
1. What is your favourite book?
Hmmmm this is difficult :). I really enjoyed this series a few years ago, it's probably a bit too young for me now but back then I read them like there was no tomorrow. The Gallagher Academy series. The series contain 6 books and I really liked them because they combined romance with a spy school and all of that cool stuff! 

2. If you could meet anyone, who would it be?

Well, I've been thinking about this question for quite a while and I must say it was hard :) I would love to meet Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup and Lilly Pebbles those two are my role models. I would also really like to meet Harry Styles because he is just gorgeous!

3. Favourite perfume?

Most definitely Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, I cannot put my love for this perfume into words haha! It is just divine!

4. Are you a cat or a dog person?

Can I be both? I have a cat and a dog. What can I say I'm an animal lover :)

5. Do you have any hobbies?

I get singing lessons, I'm not very good at it but it's fun. I also play the saxophone, which I really love doing! And then I do jazz and contemporary dance. And blogging of course. Busy busy busy....

6. Best memory?

This one is just impossible, I'm like obsessed with taking pictures, planning fun family/friend outings no wonder they call me the memoriemaker in my family. So to pick one would be just impossible :)

7. What is your favourite TV programme?

Teen wolf, Gery's anatomy, Bones, Doctor Who, Miranda, ... A long list of favourites.

8. Nicest person you know?

My best friend Elise, she is so selfless and so helpful! Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve to have her as a friend because she's so amazing!

9. How would you describe yourself?

Bubbly, active, kind of weird, socially awkward, hopeless romantic (without a boyfriend), emotional, positive and really loves food :)

10. Favorite outfit?

Either a playsuit, I just love the no effort :) or basic stuff like jeans with a  top and converse.

11. What would be ideal holiday?

The Isles Of Scilly, I did not have to think about that. I've been going there since the year I was born, we go nearly every other year so it feels like a second home. I would love to go with a mixture of friends and family, we usually go with a big group of people and the atmosphere is never dull!

Muppets Most Wanted

Christmas has been and gone and it has left me with a few bits to review. I've already reviewed a body shop product - here and some Bobbi Brown products - here. Now it's time for some nail polish goodness. The Disney for O.P.I  Muppets Most Wanted mini gift set made its way under my Christmas tree. So lets get straight into the review. 



Polish n°1: Miss Piggy's Big Number

This is a sapphire blue with tiny shimmery particles running through it. In a gift set you usually have 1 or 2 colours that don't really appeal to you. At first sight this was the one for me. It's definitely not a colour I'd normally wear but don't judge before you've tried it. The nail polish is really opaque and is has good lasting power, minimal chippage!

Polish n°2: Chillin' Like A Villain

This is most definitely not a colour I would've picked out myself. It's an orange nude. I personally don't really like this colour but again the lasting power is amazing! This one did need 3 coats to get a nice colour coverage.

Polish n°4: Kermit me to speak

This one is without doubt my favourite. This such an interesting colour that looks different in the light. It's a green/purple varnish with shimmer running through it. Nothing like I own in my collection. I was most exited to use this one and it did not disappoint. Two coats and you're good to go. It stayed put during the busy week after Christmas, it only chipped slightly.

Polish n°4: I Love Applaus

A baby pink or a milky pink as I like to call it. This, like Chillin' Like A Villain, does need 3 coats but it's well worth it. It looks sweet and girly on  the nails and it just adds a little je ne sais quoi. 

Now I've had a taste of O.P.I  I want to go back for more....

Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil


This product has me hooked. It's as simple as that. 


This glorious product would never have found its way into my skincare routine without Amelia Liana. She kept on talking about it on her YouTube channel and one day I walked passed the Body Shop and thought: what the hell lets see what all the fuss is about. I could not imagine me taking my make-up off with any other product.

First of all it smells amazing! Fresh and floral but not in a granny like way.

Second of all it melts all kind of make-up away, waterproof or not. It breaks down your make-up of the day without any trouble.

Last but not least: it makes my skin feel amazingly soft, like a baby's behind. :) Because it's an oil it is a perfect product for the winter time, ain't nobody got time for dry dull looking skin

I hope you enjoyed this short but sweet blog post. Hope you had a good start to the new year and may 2015 be a good one!
