Liebster Award | MegBolderson.

Hi guys, today is a very exciting day! I was lucky enough to be nominated TWICE for a Liebster award! Can you believe it? It was actually a few weeks ago that the lovely Caitie Evans at What Caitie Did nominated me for a Liebster award, and I have literally been SO busy with school that I haven't managed to get round to it. (I know, silly me).  Only until a few days ago I was contacted by the amazing Jess at Monkey Toes and Manicures telling me she had tagged me to do a Liebster award that I thought I ought to do it, now I have a lot of spare time on my hands.  Thank you again girls, I really appreciate it.

Because I was so kindly asked to do it twice, I thought why not answer both sets of questions? So this will most likely turn into a mammoth long blog post, but it's definitely worth it if you want to know more about me!

The Liebster Award is given to blogs you love under 200 followers. It's a great way to discover smaller awesome blogs! The rules are fairly simple:
1. Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
2. Choose 11 new bloggers to pass the award onto and link them in your post.
3. Create 11 new questions for the chosen bloggers.
4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.
5. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.
6. No tag-backs!

My answer to the 11 questions the fabulous Caitie sent me:

1. What is your favourite aspect of blogging?
I enjoy all aspects of blogging, but my favourite has to be when you receive good feedback from people, when they contact you and tell you how much they enjoyed reading. It tells me that my hard work is paying off which is nice and I appreciate it so much!

2. What is your must-have make up item for spring?
Definitely a bright lip, it can transform your makeup instantly!

3. What goals do you have for your blog for 2013?
Not so much for my blog, but I would love nothing more than to attend some blogger events and meet some lovely people. It would be so nice to chat to some people face-to-face about blogging!

4. Cosy night in or wild night out?
Considering I'm only 14, I guess I have to say cosy night in... 

5. If you could change one thing about your appearance, would you? If yes, what?
I've never been very happy with the size of my forehead (I know this sounds so silly, but it makes me really insecure) However I'm not aware of any type of surgery to sort that out, so I guess I'm stuck with it.

6. Favourite sport to watch or play?
I don't consider myself a very athletic girl, however I LOVE to dance and have been doing so for years, so if you can consider that a sport, dance!

7. Do you have any holy grail items? If so what are they?
I would have to say the collection 2000 concealer that everyone and their mum owns. Original I know.

8. Favourite song of all time?
Ahh, I can't pick! There's so many. Probably BeyoncĂ© 'Run the World' or 'All the Single Ladies' because I'm such a crazy fan!

9. What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
Pinterest told me to 'be the best version of me'. Which I try to follow.

10. If you could re-style a celebrity, who would it be and why?
I really can't answer that, I honestly think that all celebrities dress differently to their style and preference, I mean look at Lady Gaga! 

11. Do you enjoy what you do for a living?
Well I'm currently in school so I don't have a job. :(

Thank you so much for those questions Caitie, Now onto Jess's questions.

1. How did you meet your best friend?
I have lots of best friends, I've known one of them since birth as our parents were best friends too, and the rest I met at school.

2. What's one makeup thing you struggle with?
I'm not the best at contouring, I'm getting better with practise, but I always just look like I have a random line in the middle of my face, not cute.

3. What's one place you really want to see before you die?
Definitely Florida! I've wanted to go for years now.

4. What do you splurge on?
I think a good brush makes all the difference when applying makeup, so I would say brushes!

5. Who would you pick to play you in a movie?
Wow, this is really hard haha, erm, not because she's anything like me at all, because she really isn't. But Jennifer Lawrence is hands down one of my favourite actresses, I love the way she is so elegant but can still pull off climbing trees, She is also so beautiful and natural. So If I had to pick among the amazing line of actresses there is out there, It would be her (The Hunger Games is also my favourite movie ever!)

6. What is your absolute favourite store to shop at?
It depends, for clothes I like Topshop, however it can sometimes get a bit pricey. If that's the case I turn to H&M, it never fails to please me! Aside clothes shopping (you're going to think I'm weird) I love IKEA! It's so much fun, and so big and woah I think I ought to stop talking about it.

7. What is your favourite snack food?
I eat so much. If I really had to pick it would probably be cereal. Boring I know but whenever I'm feeling peckish I just go into the cupboard and take out a handful of cereal and I'm satisfied, haha!

8. If you could have a role in any TV show, what would it be?
It's more of a reality TV show I suppose, but Made In Chelsea is one of those shows that gets me really excited. I love how well spoken and classy they all are, and their amazing fashion sense, very elegant! Also, Jamie Laing is part of that show.... ;)

9. You are having a dinner party. You can invite anyone, dead or alive. Who would it be?
Beyoncé, without a doubt. I would absolutely love to meet her, I'm absolutely obsessed.

10. What is one beauty product on your wishlist right now?
I would love to own one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I own one of their palettes from years ago and I use it all the time, the eye shadows are such amazing quality and have brilliant pigmentation!

11. What is your favourite cosmetics brand?
I haven't tried that many, but right now I'd have to say MAC just because they have everything and in a wide range of colours.

Thank you very much Jess for those questions!
