Today’s post is something entirely new for Beauty Rant – I have just been nominated for the Liebster Award by Olivia Charlotte! I love the concept of this bloging award as not only is it created to help you discover new small bloggers who you may not have discovered otherwise but it also helps your followers discover things about you that they may not know! I haven’t shared many personal things on my blog so this is definitely the best way for me to share with you all a little more about me 🙂
The rules for The Liebster Award are as follows:
- Recognise who tagged you
- Answer the questions they asked
- Tag 11 bloggers with less than 200 Twitter followers
- Ask them 11 new questions
Olivia Charlotte’s Questions
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is the fact that I can share my love of makeup with such an enthusiastic and passionate community. I love it when the beauty community comes together to lift people up and give people confidence in what they are doing.
Who inspires you in life?
The most inspirational people in my life are definitely my family. Having such a great support network of people who encourage you to do your best always and who have taught you so many valuable lessons really helps shape who you are, and I like who I’ve become 🙂
What was your favourite subject at school?
My favourite subject was definitely English. I’ve always loved creative writing and putting my thoughts down onto paper (or in my blog!) so this was definitely a subject I enjoyed. I wish the focus had been more focused on developing your own voice and writing style rather than following the strict curriculum but hey, I can do whatever the hell I want on Beauty Rant!
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I can’t say geography has ever been a strong point of mine but I’d love to live in Spain for a while, everyone seems so happy over there and the weather is gorgeous everyday – much different to the UK!
If you were a social media platform which would you be?
I’d probably be YouTube – I can talk for England when I get started.
What is your favourite beauty brand?
This was a tough one. I love so many makeup products, but beauty brands?! I think right now my favourite beauty brand is NYX.
What’s one thing you love that your followers wouldn’t know?
I’ve spent the last 3 years rewatching every season of Vampire Diaries over and over again…I’m ashamed of nothing!
What is your favourite thing to do to relax?
*see above* or bake, I love baking 🙂
If you could have a chat with any famous person, alive or not, who would it be?
I feel like Michael Jackson is such an interesting character than no one really understood or knew that well, I’d love to get even just a tiny insight into who he really was.
Do you prefer summer or winter?
Where would you like your blog to be in one year?
Honestly if my blog was at the same stage as it is right now in one year I’d be happy. Of course I’d love to grow my followers and be able to post more frequently but I love just being able to have a platform to write about something I love 🙂
