A Liebster Award !

So i got nominated for a Liebster award ! 
How lovely :) my new friend Basmah over at Lacee & Lattes nominated me for my first ever Liebster award ! 

Yes, little old me :) 

I was a bit excited (well, alot) and decided to google what this award really was. I mean i have heard it floating around the blogosphere for a while now but had never really made the effort to work out what it meant ! After doing a little research i came to the conclusion that the award is not so much a tangible thing but rather a nod from one up-and-coming blogger to another, in German 'Liebster' means “dearest, loveliest, kindest, favorite, darling", basically it's a term of endearment 

Nawwww warm & fuzzies ! 
I love it already 

So i have to say a big thankyou again to Basmah, be sure to check out her blog !! It's very addictive & the photos will have you lusting over things left right & centre

Basmah's Questions:

What is your favourite thing about yourself?
I would have to say my favourite thing about myself is the colour of my eyes :) I’ve always loved having blue eyes because golden heud eyeshadows are my absolute favourite & they seem to suit blue eyes so well !

If you were going on holiday for 3 months, and could only take 1 makeup item with you, what would it be?
Suncreeen ! I already have some sun damage (tops of my shoulders & a little on my décolletage) everyday when I see it a little part of me gets really upset at past-lauren for not being more proactive. So definitely sunscreen as my one & only

If you had 3 wishes, what would you wish for?
Firstly I would wish for perfect health for all my friends & family, secondly I would wish for the ability to like go from 1 place to another really quick (teleportation?) & thirdly I would pull a dodgy & wish for neverending wishes hehehe is that allowed ?

Who is your celebrity crush?
Um right now ? Shaun White is up there (he is a snowboarder) ! This is a hard one because M is top of my list, hehehe I know that sounds corny but I just love that guy ! Ooooooh Ryan Gosling is alright too, especially if he was in character as Noah :)

What is your guilty pleasure?
Sigh. I wish I had a really cool one to say but in all honestly my guilty pleasure is buying expensive candles & only lighting them sporadically then feeling incredible when the smell fills the room. That & buying a decent chocolate (hello guylian) too munch on with Hart of Dixie on a Tuesday night

What was the first makeup product you ever owned?
A grape coloured Estee Lauder lipstick that was given to me by my Aunt ! I think it was a GWP that she cast off lol (& who can blame her). I thought it was the coolest thing & have fond memories of reapplying it whilst at dinner with friends at Hungry Jacks ! Whoo hoo

What is your favourite food?
Noodle Soup ! My parent used to take us out on the weekends to the food court above Paddy’s Markets & I used to get the most delicious concontions mmmmhm rice noodles with Asian greens & dumpling + the soup ! OMG I am hungry now, yep definitely my favorite

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Hmmm well if i'm being honest the first thing that i think of is being able to read minds, but i would regret having this power. I just think there would be no privacy or wonder, imagine reading your boyfriends mind & finding out he was about to propose ! What a bummer...so i would choose the power to fly or teleport instead !

If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it?
I would book a massive snow trip to the ski fields in California, I feel like I have such clarity when I’m in the mountains & around all that fresh air & snow ! Then I would sit down with a hot chocolate & M and brainstorm. I would probably become a house flipper !

What are your pet peeves?
I can’t stand it when people put others down to make themselves feel / sound better, it instantly changes my view of them & I really don’t like it when people turn an entire conversation into a big session all about them ! Usually the same people who do the first, will do the second as well !

If you could only choose one, would you choose lipstick or mascara?
Always mascara, always! The amount of times I have put on a concealer + mascara combo & felt pretty sweet is a lot more than the amount of times lipstick has given me that same feeling ! So I am loyal to mascara, the little tube of wonder that is it

So, there you go !
