Liebster Award

I was nominated by the lovely Katie Nicholls (another Katie! :D) at When Life Gives You Lemons for the Liebster Award, which was an awesome surprise as I'm so new, I haven't even got ten followers yet! The Leibster Award is an award for new bloggers with less than 200 followers to help raise interest in their blogs and help them connect with other bloggers. 

How it works:
  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves
  • Answer the questions that the nominator set for you, plus create 11 questions for the people that you've nominated to answer
  • Nominate other people and link them to your post
  • Go to their page and tell them
  • No tag backs!
11 Random Facts About Me...
  1. I just did 50 of these here but I'm vain (and I want to do this properly) so I'm going to try and think of more!
  1. I broke my wrist as a kid trying to catch a butterfly from the top of my slide.
  1. I love snakes, I want to own one some day.
  1. My Grandad was the one who first started calling me Katie (my name is Katherine) and my mum hated it, but it's stuck.
  1. I'm an eyeshadow person more than anything else, I only just recently started wearing lip products.
  1. I only just started using a proper skin care routine in the last month or so.
  1. I have grey eyes which kind of change colour depending on lighting/makeup/unicorn magic etc. You might notice in some pictures they look green, other blue and in some brown (nope, I don't get it either!)
  1. Food purchases aside I'm usually quite bad at allowing myself to spend money on nice things for myself. It tends to come out in massive spending binges.
  1. If I don't know what word I want to use or I'm trying not to swear I tend to insert the word monkey or monkeys into sentences at random.
  1. I had horse-riding lessons from the age of 5 until around 15/16. I still miss it and want to go back as soon as I can afford it.
  1. The thing I miss most about Manchester is a gamer bar called Kyoto Lounge.

The questions Katie left for me to answer... 
  • Marmite. Love or hate?
  • Sweet or savoury?
    Can I say both? I do have a massive sweet tooth though
  • What would you buy first if you won the lottery?
    Depends how much I won, but assuming it was the jackpot – a small apartment.
  • Are you the big spoon or little spoon?
    Little spoon. Though usually I sleep curled into boythings chest :)
  • What are the 3 beauty items you couldn't live without?
    Concealer, Tweezers and Liner
  • What is your dream job?
    Working with horses, or a chemical job in the beauty or food industries.
  • Why did you start blogging?
    As a distraction and something to make me feel good. Probably the wrong reasons, but the community really does make me smile and I enjoy playing with makeup and sharing with others :)
  •  What is your favourite childhood television program?
    Oh so many! The Silver Brumby, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman The Animated series... I was a nerdy tomboy
  • What is your worst habit?
    Smoking probably :( and I have a few others that I don't really talk about,
  • Beach, country or city?
  • Pyjamas and slippers, or dress and high heels? Pyjamas and slippers, I'm super lazy and like my comfort.

The questions I want others to answer:
  1. What's your biggest beauty sin?
  1. If you had to eat at one restaurant/eatery once a week for the next year which would you pick?
  1. Favourite movie you saw in 2012?

(apologies if any of you have already been tagged, I checked whether you'd been tagged in 2013 but I'm lazy and supposed to be learning driving Theory and applying for jobs! Feel free to ignore if you've done this already)
