Awards & Tags

Hiya lovelies! How have you been? :)

As you might have guessed from my rare and repetitive tweets already, I'm still stressed about my exams but the next one won't be until wednesday next week which means plenty of time for me to finally thank all of you lovelies who nominated me for an award. 
I'm usually not one to do these tags although I enjoy reading everyones answers but given that I've been nominated by quite a few people over the last weeks I thought I might just answer some random questions so I don't need to get through all of them.

Thanks to 
and Arwa

for nominating me! I appreciate it :)

Please do excuse if I forgot to mention you, just drop me a tweet/message/comment and let me know so I can link you, too! Like I said I've been nominated numerous times so kind of lost track. So I'm going to choose a couple of questions the girls created and throw in a few random facts about me. I'll tag anyone who wants to do this tag as I find it quite hard to choose just a few blogs and think anyone should be able to join in on the fun :) Let me know if you do this and don't forget to put your link in the comments!

Random facts about me

1. I'm a perfectionist and can pretty much obsess over anything. Counting calories, swatching nail varnish, washing my hands, the perfect eyeliner flick, you name it, I obsess about it.

2. I'm the eldest of six kids, I have two brothers and three sisters who I love to bits.

3. Hate excercising and diets with a passion but won't ever stop complaining about my body.

4. Whenever I go shopping I need to touch and comment on everything within reach [that's why I carry tons of anti bac hand gel around with me you see]

5. I hate, hate, hate my nose more than anything and definitely will have it done one day.

6. Seeing maggots and/or earthworms makes me cry. They disgust me so much!

7. I don't like cherries. Or carrots. Or Brussels sprouts.

8. I sympathise with almost anyone! Obviously there are a few exceptions but I'm quite understanding most of the time.

9. The #bbloggers community made me gain a lot of confidence! Everyone is so kind and lovely ♥

10. Before I've started studying Social Work in 2011 I've been studying English and Dutch literature, but decided that wasn't for me and I haven't looked back ever since!

Random questions

1. What has been the best drugstore foundation to you? That's an easy one, nothing matches my skintone quite as well as Rimmel's foundations! I'm currently using their Match Perfection and Lasting Finish 25h foundation in ivory and their Wake Me Up in soft beige which is my favourite out of these.

2. Do you see a bright future or an unknown one? To be honest with you, I try to not think about the future at all. Of course I'm trying to make wise choices but due to my depression and all that jazz I need to take one step at a time. My next goal is to finish uni!

3. Which product could you not live without? Strictly speaking I can't just name one product but I guess it would be anything by Soap&Glory. Seriously, that brand has changed my life! Not being dramatic here, am I.

4. Do you have any hobbies besides blogging? Well, I do consider playing around with makeup one of my hobbies. Actually, a lot of my 'hobbies' are just as shallow as they involve shopping and painting my nails. But I also enjoy travelling, reading books and crafting!

5. What do you look for in a blog? First of all, I love simple yet cute blog designs and clear, big pictures. Regarding beauty blogs I also love to see accurate swatches and all the 'important' information like the price, where they've bought it from, shades the product comes in etc. And most importantly a personal style of wrinting! To me there's nothing worse than boring posts which lack personality.

6. Which one skincare, haircare and cosmetic product would you take with you on a desert island? (one of each!) That's tricky! I think I'd choose Soap&Glory's For Daily Youth [my skincare saviour atm, review coming soon!] Aussie's 3 minute miracle and a pinky coral lipstick.

7. What is your proudest moment to date? This took me ages to think about, I think it's seeing my siblings grow up into lovely people. Couldn't be more proud of them and the choices they make!

8. Do you prefer heels or flats? Now I love heels, there are loads of incredible looking ones out there but the reason I prefer flats is I'm 5'7" already!

9. All time favourite movie? Harry Potter without a doubt! I've probably watched it a million times.

10. What's your favourite drugstore makeup? Over the past few months I've developed an unhealthy obsession with MUA, especially their palettes and lipsticks!

So there we go, hope you enjoyed reading my facts and answers! Anyone sharing a weird habit of mine? Let me know :)
