Liebster Blog Award

The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to two very lovely bloggers who nominated me for this award - Miss Jammy & Sinead at Fashion & Beauty Tribes - thank you both so much for nominating me, it really means a lot to me :)

I highly recommend both of their blogs, they are among my FAVOURITES list and are really worth subscribing to - plus they are lovely girls! :)

Here's what you need to do!

1. Each person must post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs.

I'm going to change the rules on this slightly as I have already posted up a lot of random facts about myself on other posts, so I'm starting to run out of facts!! Plus, as I'm accepting this from two bloggers at once there are two sets of questions to answer :)

Miss Jammy's Questions Answered!

What is your favourite makeup product of all time?
I would have to say it's MACs studio finish concealer - I suffer terribly with under eye dark shadows and this is the only concealer that works well for me!

What is your favourite nail polish of all time?
Ooh this is a tough one! I would say it would have to be Barry M's Strawberry Ice Cream as its my favourite shade of pink - but I have only recently started to get into nail polishes so that may change soon!

What are your favourite and least favourite kind of blog posts to read?
My favourite kind of posts to read are: Whats In My Bag, Tag posts, How Tos and Product Reviews...I also love movie reviews!
My least favourite I guess are monthly empties posts, its just not something that interests me personally but each to their own :)

What is your favourite hairstyle?
I like buns using the hair doughnuts as they look good with very little effort! :)

What was the last thing you bought?
The last thing I bought was a few Make up items in TK Maxx - it was a set of 3 ELF lipglosses, an ELF eyeshadow set, and a Benefit lipstick.

If you could go back in time, what would you do?
I'd stand up for myself more in high school, I was bullied quite a lot and I never really fought back...that bothers me.

What is your dream job?
Oooh this changes a lot! I'd say I'd love to be a teacher or I'd also really love to have my own shop.

What is your favourite quote or saying?
"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans"

What is your favourite TV Series?
I can't choose between Sex & The City and Friends!

If you won £1000, what would you do with it?
I'd put it towards a cruise holiday! :)

Any plans for the summer?
Not all that much planned to be honest! I'll be working, and trying to save money for my holiday in November!

Sinead's Questions Answered!

1.London or New york ?
Well I've never been to New York (Though I'd love to go!) so I'd have to say London...I do LOVE London

2.What really annoys you ?
I hate jealousy, and bitchiness in girls....there's way too much of it showing its ugly face lately

3.What is your favourite colour ?
PINK! Especially baby pink

4. Have you any serect talents ?
Umm well I can read tarot cards and I practise other forms of divination

5. What was your favourite subject at school ?
English literature and drama

6. What item of clothing do you love wearing ?
This changes often, but right now I'm loving coloured jeans and cute tops

7.What does fashion mean to you ?
I have always loved fashion...its just a great way to express yourself and your mood on any given day!

8.How would you define your city's fashion ?
Well this is a hard one for me, as I would class my city as Liverpool as thats where I was born & raised - Liverpool's style gets a lot of stick in the press and yes, there are a lot of "misguided" people who think it looks good to go out shopping wearing their pyjamas with their hair in rollers!, but equally there are a LOT of people who dress really fabulously - people in Liverpool always make an effort to look good, and everybody dresses to the 9s no matter what the occasion and I like that.

I now live in Devon, and the difference in fashion is astounding! People don't really dress up a lot here, its much more of a student kind of vibe so girls tend to wear old jeans and sweatshirts/sneakers more than they'd wear fashionable clothes - I miss the glamour of living in a city, I appreciate that kind of look more than the dressed down look people like around here.

9.What are some of your favourite clothing stores/catalogues/websites ?
I love New Look, ASOS, Brand Alley, Juicy Couture, Debenhams, House Of Fraser & River Island.

10.Where do you get your inspiration for your blog ?
I just blog about whatever is on my mind or things I'm interested in at the moment :)

11.Where can readers find out more about you and your
Well they can find me on Twitter @raine_fairy or on Facebook here:

  1. Hi Hayley,

    Thank you so much for nominating me! :) Really appreciated.

    Also, in reply to your comment on my blog, Buyapowa is a website where people request items they really want but don't want to pay full price for them, if they get enough requests of the same product, Buyapowa contact the company and they usually offer a big discount from the RRP price if a certain amount of people buy the product. The more people that buy, the lower the price drops :) theres always great beauty products on there, you should check it out occasionally :)
