I cannot believe I have been nominated for another award *speechless*, I've haven't been blogging for that long, and for someone to recognise my blog means the world to me! So i'd like to say thank you so much to for nominating me, thank you! + check her amazing blog out!
So here we go.. the rules;
- Answer 11 random facts about yourself
- Answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you
- Nominate maximum 11 new or newish blogs and make 11 questions for them to answer.

Fact about me;
-I get so excited to go to primark (I don't have a local one, so when I go I'm over-whelmed with the prices, and clothes!)

-I could eat sausages every night for the rest of my life

-I'm addicted to buying makeup, every time I go into boots or superdrug I have
to buy something...

-i hate wearing jeans, there just uncomfortable and stiff and errruggh!

-I have the 1st generation iPod touch,which I will love forever.

-I used to be the biggest tomboy ever, and loved to play football

-My mates always call me a 'hipster', I have a green jacket, Doc martins and ONE triangle statement necklace and now I'm a 'hipster' apparently!

-My favourite sweets are the eggs you get in Harbio starmix

-I want to live and work in Paris when I'm older

-I'd love to go to the 'London college of fashion' to study.

-I'm really impatient, so get really bored when painting my nails, hence why I like other people doing them for me *lazy*

Questions asked by Marcella;

1. What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened to you?

That's a hard one.. quite a few... probably when I asked in a middle of the lesson 'who is the king?' (I am blonde, naturally!) I then thought about what I had just asked and went the shade of a strawberry and sunk into my chair.  I was so embarrassed, but believe me - there's been so many embarrassing moments!

2. Dogs or Cats?

To be honest, neither. haha, I don't really like dogs or cats! *apologise to any dogs or cats* If I had to pick probably dogs...

3. Your house is on fire, what do you grab?

Family, Doc martins, A few makeup things,pictures.. that's a hard question..

4. What book are you currently reading?

I just finished reading the book 'Shadow' by Michael Morpurgo, which was a great book. I have also just read this months 'company' magazine if that counts!

5. Best beauty buy of 2012?

ANOTHER HARD QUESTION... *mentally going through my makeup* I really don't know, but I think it would have to be my MUA palette in 'Undressed' I LOVE IT, I use it all the time (I did a review, so if you want more detail read that) it was only £4, and I would pay triple that!
Joint first though would have to be my Revlon Kissable balm stain in 'Honey', omg omg omg I LOVE IT. The colour is subtle yet visible and is gorgeous. For just under £8, well worth it.

6. What's top of your ambition list for 2013?

umm.. probably get my blog more successful and have a higher amount of followers! If you're reading this and haven't followed, please do - you won't regret it! *cheesy*

7. What is something you do differently than others?

I have ketchup on EVERYTHING. Judge me all you like, I love it! aha!

8. What are you most grateful for?

My family and friend, they are so supportive and are always there for me and always make me laugh whatever!

9. What is your favourite childhood memory?

Probably going to New Zealand, I was about 5/6 but surprisingly I can remember a lot, the views, funny moments, going swimming in Dubai, all sorts! One of the best holidays I've had!

10. Who is your biggest style crush?

There so many people out there with amazing style but probably Alexa Chung, wowza, her clothes are incredibly and the way she styles them is amazing - one day I shall buy something from Chanel like her...  Lana Del Ray as well - Wow, her whole 'vintage' feel for clothing is to-die-for. Of course there's people like Paloma Faith (Her hair is so amazing, I watched on TV a programme and it showed her wardrobe full of clothes and I swear I dribbled, ahah!) I'm also in love with Dakota and Elle Fanning, there so natural and can pull of anything.

11. Would you rather be Dorothy or the Wicked Witch of the West?
  Of course Dorothy, who wouldn't want her sparkly red shoes?
