Award 4: Liebster Award

Hello, I have another award post today, thank you Samm! The aim of the game here is to share 11 facts about yourself, answer the 11 questions from the 'tagger', create 11 questions for the people you tag and finally, tag 11 people with under 200 followers. Random fact, I was definitely intrigued into what leibster meant so I googled and it's actually German, translating into words such as sweetheart and darling, aww. I also found out that these aren't the original rules at all, it's like a game of Chinese whispers! Anyway...

11 facts:
  1. I'm a total daydreamer, a bit slow and dozy at times.
  2. I am not good at making decisions. At all. 
  3. I'm a curious person, I think it's so strange how things happen the way they do.
  4. I love romantic films, I'm such a soppy girl, n'aww.
  5. I will travel America one day.
  6. I want to stay home for uni, all of my friends are moving all over the country but no, home is where I want to be.
  7. Me and Lee have been together for 596 days, love him lots!
  8. I used to collect stickers, rubbers, bouncy balls and key rings, strange kid.
  9. I often get told I 'look about 12'. That's not fun.
  10. I hate healthy food, life would be so much easier if I liked the stuff.
  11. I'm socially awkward. Terrible at meeting new people and keeping a conversation going.
Questions from Samm:
  1. What's your favourite make-up brand? I can't choose! Different brands are good for different things aren't they...
  2. Do you have any pets? No. I would love a dog, I've been begging for one for so long but it's not happening.
  3. Bronzer or blusher? Hmm, I can go without bronzer, not blusher otherwise I look dead so blusher is it.
  4. Laptop or Mac? Laptop. I would love to own a posh Mac one day but for now, my pink Dell inspiron is my baby, it has treat me well.
  5. Opinion on the brand MUA? I've only tried their undressed palette and I love it, their prices are great so I definitely want to try more!
  6. Favourite palette? As above. I'd love to own the Stila in the lights palette but I've been loving my undressed palette, tis so versatile. 
  7. Urban Decay or Benefit? Benefit, only because I haven't tried anything Urban Decay, I love Benefit's high beam.
  8. What's your dream career? I'm pretty set on social work, preferably working with teens. I'd love to do some magazine writing too.
  9. Favourite blog? I love so many, I'm going to start adding a blog to my reflection posts, I've enjoyed reading through Alix's recently.
  10. Most used eye look? Like neutral or bold? Neutral. I love to experiment with colour but very rarely go out without my go to neutral eye.
