Liebster Award!

Liebster Award Logo

I have been very kindly nominated for the Liebster Award by Araceli who has an amazing blog named Thrill of the Luxe. She creates a combination of style, beauty and thrifting posts that give you inspiration and advice on how to save cash and still look stylish.

The Liebster Award is given to bloggers by other bloggers, once nominated you thank and give recognition to the blogger that nominated you and answer the 10 questions they ask. Once this is done you can pick 5-10 new bloggers to receive the award and create 10 new questions for these nominees.

So here are the questions I was asked!

Out of all the countries you have visited, which one did you like the most?

I really haven't visited many countries mostly due to money and circumstances (I do hopefully want to change this over the next few years when my income improves/I get a full-time job. Until I'm in a position to travel more I want to explore more of my own country, Scotland. Sometimes I take for granted just how beautiful a place it is.

What is the most extreme thing you have ever done
This is a difficult one, I'm not really an 'extreme' person. I've always been quite shy and have a lot of anxiety so what feels extreme for me probably wouldn't be too many others. Something that felt quite big for me was actually taking the plunge and starting this blog.

What is your favourite beauty product by far
Ooooh this is another tricky one....there's so much that I love! I think I would need to say my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, it's one of my holy grail beauty items.

Cat or Dogs?

DOGS!!! All the way, my dog Bentley is the love of my life and inspiration for the name of my blog. I would love to have a big house with a big bit of land and 10 dogs running around.

How would you describe your style?

I would say I have quite a simple classic style with a slightly grungy twist. I love neutral shades, most of my wardrobe is made up of blacks, greys and whites.

What is currently your favourite book?
I have recently got back into reading more and I recently read The Girl Before which was good, my favourite type of books is psychological thrillers! I have also started reading Blood Sisters but I haven't made my mind up about that one yet so I will need to report back when I'm finished.
Who is your style icon?
I wouldn't say I have a style icon, I go through phases of loving different peoples style but it changes over time. I don't currently have any one person's style that I'm obsessed with.

Apple or Samsung?
Samsung! I've always had a Samsung since I bought the S3 a few years ago and I've stuck with this line. I've never owned an iPhone and sometimes I think they are a little overrated. 

Why did you start your blog?
I had wanted to start a blog for years, I've studied make-up artistry and I love being creative so I wanted to find a way to have that creativity and share with people my opinions. I love watching YouTube videos but it's not for me, I'm not 'brave' enough to put myself out there in that way so blogging allows me to control how much of myself I put out to the world whilst still talking about all the things I want to.

What's the hardest thing you've encountered while blogging?
I think the most difficult thing is to stay motivated even if you feel like you're not getting anywhere and trying not to compare yourself and your blog to anyone else's. It's easy to look at others and think about how much better their pictures look or how well they write but you need to stay focused on yourself and do your own thing. Everyone's blog being different is what makes things so interesting!
