The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Oh hey there! A while ago I was nominated by Nika's Beauty Land for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award, but have only just got round to writing a post on it. It's another award that I'd never heard of before, but as with most other awards it's a great way to get blogs noticed, so I was hugely flattered to be considered for a nomination. Thanks Nika! Check out her blog here

Here's how it works:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site
2. Put the award logo on your blog
3. Answer their ten questions 
4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees
5. Nominate 10 bloggers for the award

Nika's questions:

1. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years' time I'll be 30, almost 31... that's terrifying. To be honest I have no idea where I see myself in a year's time, let along 10! I hope I'll have done some travelling and caught the travel bug so will still be exploring the world. I also hope that I'll have a stable job that will allow me to travel around and visit new places. I'll definitely have my own place, but as for my own family, the thought of having children sends me into a bit of a panic, so I can't say if I see them in my life in 10 years or not, or if I'll even be married, but who knows!

2. Are you a spender or a saver?

I'm definitely a saver. I can easily spend a lot of money, but not without feeling that pang of guilt afterwards. I'll always be on the look out for a bargain and rummaging through all the sales - not much beats the feeling of knowing you saved a load of money on something that cost a fortune before! But don't get me wrong, if I could afford it I'd definitely be a spender!

3. Your most worn makeup product?

I wear the same makeup products everyday so I can't really say which one I wear the most. If I had to choose I'd probably pick mascara (I'm currently using Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme but my favourite has to be Maxfactor False Lash Effects) as my eyelashes just look non-existant without it, or I'd choose my concealer (currently using Rimmel Wake Me Up) as no one wants dark circles. 

4. Which products can't you go without in your everyday makeup routine?

The mascara and concealer from above, and now probably my Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer which I only just started using and already love!

5. Do you prefer long or short hair and why?

I've had long hair my whole life but I would love to cut it into a bob style. My hair is incredibly unpredictable though, so I am much too scared to cut it any shorter for fear of what would happen! So I'll have to go with long hair, but I'll always have that desire for short hair. 

6. Your hobbies beside blogging?

I love baking, as you may have noticed from all my baking posts; I find it so relaxing and love experimenting with different recipes, and getting to eat the results at the end is a big bonus! Also, at the beginning of this year I decided to take up pole fitness and got hooked. It's always so much fun and very fulfilling! As well as that, I've just started doing bodybalance, a mix of yoga, pilates and tai chi, which really helps calm me down and deal with the stresses of uni. Lastly, I love going for walks and exploring new places. 

7. When did you start blogging?

I actually created a blog years and years ago in a moment of procrastination when I was revising for my A Levels, but never got further than choosing a layout and a pretty background. Years later, I decided to give it another go in Summer 2013, but again lost focus and abandoned it for a couple of months. I finally picked it up again towards the end of 2013, deciding to properly commit to it after the new year, and several blog posts later here we are! It's taken me a long time to finally get my head around blogging and I still have a long way to go, but all my followers and the lovely comments I've been receiving have definitely helped me and motivated me to keep going!
8. Do you have any pets?

I have a little fluffy ginger working cockerspaniel called Archie who makes a regular appearance on this blog, and every other social media I have for that matter. I also have my little goldfish Bambino who I won at a fair earlier this year. 

9. Would you like blogging to become your job?

I absolutely love blogging so would happily make it my job if I could make enough money to be able to support myself solely off it. It's a tough competition though, but no matter what job I get in the future I will always have my little blog up and running on the side, and who knows, maybe I'll be earning money from it one day!

10. Your favourite movie?

I sound like a broken record with this answer, but it's still 500 Days of Summer. I've watched it so many times I can probably recite it word for word.

My Nominees:

My Questions:

1. What's your favourite thing about Autumn?
2. What's been your favourite purchase this year?
3. What would your perfect date be?
4. What song is your guilty pleasure?

6. If you were an animal, what animal would you be?
7. What's the number one thing on your bucket list?
