Liebster Awards

liebster-award

Hey there my lovely readers,

over the past couple of weeks I’ve been nominated for 3 more Liebster Awards by 3 other lovely bloggers! Charlene from The Adventures Of Charbar, Joanna from JoannaTales and Vicky from Kiss of Make Up ! I’d really like to thank them. This really means a lot to me because it shows, that there are actually people out there, who seem to like what I write and this is really cool to me. I started blogging because it sounded like a fun idea but I never thought people would actually read it and come back to my blog to read more, so this just makes me so happy.Oh and by the way  you guys really need to go check out their blogs because if you don’t  you are seriously missing out!

I’ve already passed on a Liebster Award and the Shine On award not too long ago. There are a ton of awesome bloggers out there, who deserve a bunch of awards but I’ve passed on awards to a pretty high number of bloggers already just a while ago, so this time I’m just going to be answering the questions because I always love reading tags and I thought this way you guys could maybe get to know me a little better. So if you do want to get to know me a little better just continue reading:

Questions from Charlene.

1.  Are you a morning person or night time person? Definitiely a night time person. I have the hardest time getting up in the morning because it’s hard for me to fall asleep at night. I hardly ever sleep before 2am but at night it’s when my creativity starts flowing. I swear I get the best ideas the later it gets, so I’m a night time person. 100%

2. What is your favourite blog post you have ever written and why? I think I’ve written about a little more than 100 posts now and I honestly don’t know which one I like best. I don’t really want to judge my posts. Each time I proof read them I’m like ‘Oh what are you writing. It all sounds so crappy’ and I’m never really happy completely happy with them but I’ll eventually just post them anyway.

3. If you could travel back in time to any memory, where would you go? That’s a tough one. There are so many great memories. I can’t pick.

4. You’re hungry. You open the fridge. What do you take out?  yoghurt.

5. Tea or Coffee? Coffee all the way!

6. If you could say anything to your 13 year old self, what would you say? Always stay true to yourself and don’t let others change you. It doesn’t matter what they think about you as long as you are happy with yourself. People love to label others but you’ve got to try to be above those things.

7. 3 things you would bring with you if you were stranded on a desert island. Don’t know. I wouldn’t like to be stranded on a desert island but if I had to chose probably a knife, a blanket and my phone, so I could call for help.

8. What never fails to make you smile? My dog and my little brother (he makes the most awful jokes)

9. Do you have a favourite quote? I have several. One of my favourites is this one:

travel-inspiration-quote

I’ve moved and travled a lot so I couldn’t agree more with this because moving and traveling has taught me a lot about general things in live. Always gotta try to broaden your horizon.

10.  Where do you want to be in 5 years time? I hope to have finished my bachelors and master degree and will hopefully be in the midst of a PHD program.

11. How much would could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood? :) Serious question: What is a wood chuck? I thought it was this cute little animal.

Joanna’s questions:

1. What are the top 3 places you would like to visit?

1. Chicago (I’m actually going there next month. Eeek!)

2. Buenos Aires

3. Japan

 2. What is your favourite make up brand / shop?

There are a lot of good ones but my absolute fave would have to be Mac.

 3. Who is your inspiration?

My dad.

4. Best purchase so far this year?

My new camera. I can finally take better quality pictures for my blog now. Yay

5. What are your top 5 favourite apps?

I don’t use too many apps so probably like Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. Pretty boring, huh?

 6. What makes you smile?

The little things.

7. Why did you start blogging?

I’ve always loved to write and fashion and beauty is a big passion of mine so I thought why not start writing about that and throw a random lifestyle post in every once in a while.

8. Who is your celebrity crush? That tends to change a lot.

9. If you had one wish, what would it be? A happy and healthy future for my family, friends and me. Does that count as one wish?

 

And last but not least Vicky’s questions:

Q1. If a loved one surprised you with a secret holiday but told you, you could only take three makeup items what would they be and why? BB cream for a hopefully flawless skin, mascara for long lashes and red lipstick because I love a good red lipstick.

Q2. for some strange Reason there’s a shortage on food and you can only chose one meal to eat for a full year what would you pick and why? Cereal. I’m a really picky eater so I’m pretty much living on cereal already anyway. Haha

Q3. savoury or sweet? I’m gonna have to go with sweet.

Q4. what is your favourite season and why? I can’t pick one. Each season has its good and its bad sides. I love spring because everything starts to blossom, summer is awesome because it’s warm and you can be outside all day, fall is so pretty when the leaves start to change and winter.. well there’s Christmas, which is my favorite time of the year. I just love them all.

Q5. What is you favourite high street and  high-end makeup product and why? I have so many products it’s hard to chose. My favorite high end make up product is probably one of my Mac or YSL lipsticks and my favorite high street is without a doubt the falsies mascara by Maybelline.

Q6. would you rather go with out wearing makeup or eating chocolate for a full year? I’d definitely give up the chocloate. I love my make up way too much.

Q7. What is your favourite makeup era and why? I don’t really have one.

Q8. you have just been offered £1000 if you either strip naked in public or do a skydive, would you do it and which would you chose? I guess I’d do neither. I wouldn’t want to get naked in public. That sounds like a nightmare and I could never go skydiving because I’m terribly afraid of heights and the feeling of falling.

Q9. Nights out or Nights in and why? Just really depends on my mood. I love to go out but sometimes I just need to chill and stay in with a good movie or book.

Q10. If you could make a wish for someone to come true, who and what would you chose and why? Tough question. I’d save it for someone really special and if I knew they had a really really big dream and were in need of a wish I’d give it to them.

Q11. Someone you know is getting married in 5 days and you have just seen their partner up close and personal with someone else… what do you do and why???? I’d tell them for sure. I’d want to know if I were about to marry a cheater, so I’d definitely tell them.

This was quite the lengthy post, so high five if you actually read it all the way through and didn’t get bored halfway. Again I really appreciate these awards and I can’t believe people are actually reading what I’m writing. It really means a lot!

I hope you kind of liked this post.

Much love,

Sophie

The Beauty Procrastination Tag

Hey there,

the other day I was tagged to do the Beauty Procrastination Tag by the lovely Charlotte from xxcharlou.blogspot,co.uk. If you haven’t checked out her blog I highly recommend you to.

Now I haven’t really done many personal tags, so I figured it might be fun to read for y’all so let’s get right to it.

1. Are you a very open or private person?   I’d say I’m more of a private person. I always tend to keep my thoughts and feelings to myself and there’s only a few people (probably my best friend and my brother) who I can open up to completely. I’m just more of a shy and reserved person but once I get to know someone, that totally changes and I’m not shy anymore at all but I still don’t like to share really really personal stuff.

2. If money was no object where would you move to? Don’t know. I probably wouldn’t move anywhere and go on a trip all around the world. I love traveling and being able to travel all the time and experience new cultures and learn new languages would probably be the coolest thing ever for me.

3. Who was the last person that made you cry? Last September when I moved to the Netherlands my parents and my brother dropped me off at my new apartment and when they left my brother started crying. He always acts so cool and tough, so that kind of surprised me and it was just the cutest and saddest thing ever. I hate seeing people cry, so it made me tear up a little.

4. Is there a song that can bring tears to your eyes easily? Apparently Don’t Stop Believing By Journey. I know this might be a weird choice but there’s a reason. This song is the favorite song of one of my best friends, who I met in Louisiana. She used to always to always turn up the volume when this song came on and she would sing along to it. She forced me to listen to this all the time. On our way to High School, to Friday Night Football Games, Basketball Games. They even played this song at Homecoming. The other day I had my iPod on shuffle and I probably hadn’t listened to this song since I left the US nearly 3 years ago, so when I heard it all these memories came back and I just started bawling because I miss my friends over there and haven’t seen them in ages.

5. Do you believe in soulmates? I guess so.

6.What age do people usually mistake you for? I have no idea. I think I look about my age. At least when I’m wearing make up.

7. What are you wearing? Skinny jeans, a white shirt and my favorite oversized cardigan because the weather sucks today and I’m probably going to spend the rest of my Saturday studying.

8. Have you ever been in love? I’ve had crushes but I don’t think I’ve ever been like really in love. I’m still waiting on that someone to like sweep me off my feet, make heaven and earth stand still, you know what I mean, right?

9. How tall are you? Not very tall. I like to believe I’m 5’4 because that’s what my passport says but my best friend says there’s no way I’m 5’4 because she is 5’7 and I’m still a lot shorter than her.

10. How much do you weigh? Let’s just say I’m still working on that bikini body. I’m usually between sizes 4 and 6 (US) 8 and 10 (UK) or 36 and 38 (EU)  though.

11. Do you have any piercings? Just my ears.

12. Favorite TV Show? I really liked Gossip Girl, Glee and Pretty Little Liars but I’m currently obsessed with Scandal.

13. Quality to look for in a partner? Someone who is fun to be around and genuinely nice and not judgemental. There’s nothing worse than lying and backstabbing people or someone that gives you a label the instant they look at you.

14. Favorite Quotation?

in-order-to-be-irreplaceable

15.  Do you have any fears?  Heights, fire, cats and dark water.

16. What is your daily beauty routine? Skin care, foundation, powder, mascara and eyeliner. Sometimes I add some lipstick or blush but on a regular day nothing too crazy.

17. When going out somewhere how long does it take you to get ready? Long, I guess. I can speed it up though if I have to.

18. How organised is your make up and nail collection? It’s all separated into different bags. For me that is organised enough.

Thanks again to Charlotte for tagging me :)

If you enjoyed reading this (and I really hope you did) I’m tagging you. If you do decide to do this tag send me your links because I love reading these.

Have a lovely Saturday!
