Sisterhood of the World: Blog Award

I haven't done one of these in a while, but thought that a Q&A style post would make a nice break from all the beauty news and reviews! I would like to send my thanks to Chloe from for nominating me for this bit of fun. Chloe is an absolutely wonderful lady whose blog covers topics from beauty, fashion and lifestyle. What makes her stand out is her inspirational move to start her campaign against bulling, helping others with anxiety related issues amongst much more. Her blog is definitely worth popping over to (and I'm not just saying that because of this tag!).

The rules of this tag are as followed:

– Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
– Put the award logo on your blog.
– Answer the ten questions they have set you.
– Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
– Nominate ten people

Here are the questions which Chloe has kindly asked me...

1. What inspired you to start blogging?

I first heard about the beauty blogging world really through my cousin, a fellow beauty blogger, but I've always been super passionate about writing. My dad and brother both have their own websites for their hobbies so I thought, why not make my own?! I've only becoming truly dedicated since May this year after being inspired to speak out about trichotillomania. 

2. Where do you hope to see your blog in the future?

I would just love to keep up the hard work and watch my blog grow really. I'd love for this to take me into more projects to do with trichotillomania and helping others with the disorder. 

3. What do you love most about the blogging world?

So many things! I love having the opportunity to get my voice heard, but most of all I appreciate how utterly supportive the blogging world is. I never dreamed of the positive response I've got, and how many lovely people I've had the pleasure of talking to due to this blog. 

4. What are your top beauty tips?

 Never fill your eyebrows in black, no matter how dark your hair is, and always blend your make-up! Blend, blend, blend!

5. Where do you get your makeup/style inspiration from?

Everywhere and anywhere! My Nan is a great style inspiration; she's so elegant and classy and I try very hard to emulate that (whether I pull it off is a different matter!). I think it's important to get inspiration from everything, and just constantly try different looks to find what suits you. 

6. Where do you love to shop the most?

If I could, I would forever shop at Zara. I also love H&M, New Look, Primark, Asos...the classic highstreet queens!

7. What are you most proud of in relation to your blog?    

Probably speaking out about trichotillomania and having the opportunity to help others through the disorder I've also battled for 17 years. 

8. Which do you favour: bags or shoes?

The hardest question ever! I love them both equally and could never choose between them..... but probably bags. (Sorry shoes!)

9. How much would you spend on a beauty product?

It totally depends on how good it is! I'd never spend a ridiculous amount without trying it out first, but if I find it really works for me and changes my life, then I'd spend however much it takes...Ha!

10. What is your top blogging tip?

Take a break if you run out of steam, your blog will probably benefit from it. Also scheduling is your best friend! 

My questions are:

1. What's the reason behind your blog's name?

2. What has been your blogging highlight so far?

3. Have you ever had any hairstyle disasters?

4. What's been your worst/funniest beauty disaster? 

5. What's the most important thing you think you've learnt from blogging?

6. What has suprised you most about blogging?

7. What has been your favourite post to write?

8. What is a beauty trick you couldn't live without?

9. Where would you love your blog to take you in the future?

10. Blogs or vlogs?
