Liebster Award !

Evening all :)

Firstly, I have to acknowledge the lovely fact that I have reached 100+ followers! Thank you so much everybody, it means a lot as I'm never 100% sure what I'm doing with this blog, I just post things I feel are interesting to me and hope that others feel the same. Thank you all very much! :)

Today is a post on the Liebster Award as I have had several nominations from three lovely ladies! I've decided to put it all in one post, so it will be quite a long one I'm afraid. My nominations have came from Rebecca, Laura and Julia, thank you all so much for the nominations!

What is the Liebster Award?

The Liebster Award is given to bloggers that have less than 200 followers.
It is a German word which means sweetest, dearest, kindest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasent, valued, cute, welcome and endearing.

The rules!

1. State eleven things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions set you by the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate eleven people of your choice and set eleven questions for them to answer.
4. Inform them of their nomination, link them to your post.
5. Remember, no tags back.

So I have three lots of questions to answer before I begin to nominate and put forward my questions. I did consider just choosing 11 of the 33 questions but I decided against this as each person had put the effort in to choose 11 questions to ask. So here we are folks!

Questions from Rebecca.

1. What is your favourite brand of make up?
I don't know if I have a favourite to be honest, there are great products in so many lines! I love Urban Decay eyeshadows though.
2. Favourite take away?
That would have to be an Indian Chicken Rogan Josh, although, I haven't had one in 2 years!
3. Which skin product couldn't you live without?
Cleanser, I cannot go to bed with out cleansing my make up off.
4. What is your preferred brand of nail varnish?
At the moment it would have to be Color Club, I'm finding these are lasting so well!
5. Do you have any phobias?
Not really no, I mean I don't like Daddy Long Legs but that's me being just a big wuss really :P
6. Where do you buy most of your clothes?
Just the normal stores really, New Look, Republic and Dorothy Perkins.
7. Which expensive product would you buy if you could afford to?
The Flora Gucci Gardenia Perfume.
8. What is the last book or CD that you brought?
The last CD I purchased was Lana Del Rey, the last book would be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
9. What is your favourite thing to cook?
Chicken Stir Fry, nom nom nom!
10.What made you choose your blog name?
I wanted something different, I guess it symbolises me, aka 'a little boat' sailing into the big wide ocean haha! That sounds so daft now I've written it :P
11. Do you prefer the cinema or watching films at home?
Probably the cinema as I tend to end up doing something else whilst watching tv at home.

Questions from Laura. 

1. What is your favourite nail polish and why?
My favourite nail polish would have to be 'Sparkling' by Revlon. I just adore the cute pale pink glitter, it is nice and chunky and looks great on a nude colour.
2. Why did you start blogging? 
I came across blogging whilst looking for a product review in March. I found a good review on a blog (no idea who it was now) and I thought I would love to do something like that....it just stemmed from there really.
3. If you could only use one makeup item for the rest of your life what would it be?
Mascara, I think it really helps to give you a fresh, wide awake look.
4. Do you have any pets? If not what would you like to have?
I have a cat named Oliver.
5. How do you style your hair most days?
I used to straighten it all the time but now I kind of just leave it...lol
6. Leggings or jeans?
Jeans, I have never worn a pair of leggings in my life.
7. What is your biggest dream in life?
I would love to vist Japan with my boyfriend and tour the island for one month.
8. Do you have a tattoo? Or what would you have?
Nope, I'm far too picky with designs. Sounds silly but I would feel like I had tarnished my body somehow if I had one. I like them on other people, pretty confident they're not for me though.
9. Who or what is your inspiration?
In a way my boyfriend, he has done so much already and he is only a few years older than me. 
10. What's your favourite desert?
Chocolate Fudge Pudding!!
11.  One thing you wish you owned?(Doesn't have to be beauty related)
I want a bike!

Questions from Julia.

1. What's your favourite store?
Accessorize, I could spend a crazy amount in that shop.
2. What's your favourite nail polish brand?
At the moment my favourite is Color Club, I really want to try OPI and Essie though.
3. Who's your favourite nail artist?
I don't really have one to be honest, if I had to say anybody I would say that Caroline Burke, a fellow blogger does some lovely nail designs!
4. What's your favourite fashion trend?
I don't have one, I'm one of those girls that just wears what she wants and when.Wish I had been a teen in the 80's though, I would have rocked that back comb!
5. What's your favourite accessories?
6. Mascara, Eyeliner or Lipstick?
7. Which blog inspires you the most?
I've already mentioned her already! I didn't even know this question was here either,I'd say it would have to be Caroline, I love her crafts (especially that patch work quilt!). I used to love making things as a child, I would love to get back into it really.
8. Do you believe in extraterrestrial life ?
Yes, space is incredibly large for there not to be anything else out there.
9. If you could choose a crazy hair or skin colour [for instance blue] which colour would you choose?
I'd want to be that chick out of Avatar, she looked awesome! Blue skin all the way.
10. What's the craziest fashion/make up thing you have ever done?
I'm quite low key really, I had purple in my hair as a kid, that is about it.
11. What's your favourite tv show?
Grey's Anatomy.
