 So since arriving back on the blogging scene I've realised I have some award catching up to do! And since these two awards are relatively similar what not do them together? Wow genius over here huh! 

Thanks to the lovely Cerys-Eve over at One Brush Beauty for nominating me for the Liebster Award to take part in! Cerys-Eve has an awesome blog going on over there so you should definitely go check it out, if not just for her eyebrows, serious eyebrow envy going on here haha! they're fab.

2. Include a link to their blog.

4. Nominate those bloggers for a Versatile Blogger Award, leave a link to their page and a comment on their latest post to let them know they've been nominated.

And thank you to the lovely Carrie from Carrie Brighton for tagging me in the versatile blogger award, been following Carries blog for quite sometime now and can really say she's just as lovely as her blog :) And thank you to Haley from Girl Meets Glamour World for nominating me too, just starting reading more of Haleys blog and she's so much fun to read! So please go and check them out, you won't regret it, I promise ;)

SO let's crack on with the 11 Randoms Facts about Moi: (7 facts for the Versatile blogger award)

1.  I don't really like TV, I never get into TV shows and not the type to arrange my day/night around a TV programme or anything like that, if the TV's on it's just a bit of background noise in this household (especially if cléments got the football on).

2. My ALL TIME favourite dessert, ever, the only thing that claims that little space in my heart and earns the favourite dessert title is,  lemon tart. Lemon meringue pie also qualifies, anything along the lines of a pie or tart with lemon, I'm gonna be on it like a car bonnet!

3. Even though I live in France, a place of tea's and coffee, I always go down to my local Irish store to stock up on "Barrys Gold Blend" Irish tea, god knows what would happen if there was no barrys tea in the flat, all hell would break loose thats what!

4. I am easily addicted to games on my iphone, once it's downloaded and I've played non-stop for an hour, I'm a goner. You'll be lucky to hold a conversation with me whilst the gaming action is commencing. Yes, I am a victim to the new Candy Crush, and I need help!

5. I don't wear make-up every single day, or sometimes maybe a few days. If I haven't got anywhere to go or even if I have, I think what the hell! Sometimes it's so much effort to put all my make-up on to go grocery shopping, who am I trying to impress, pineapples?

6. I haven't got a ton of friends, I found school really hard growing up and struggled to "fit-in" as I was super shy, even though I'm still kinda shy, I've a couple of really close friends I met when I was really young who have stuck by me through thick and thin and that's good enough for me.

7. I have a French Bulldog and she is my baby, even if she farts ALOT, she makes these really cute noises when she's tired and wants to get comfy so I jut can't help but love her.

8. If I could just win the lottery I would buy a plane ticket tomorrow to travel the world and high tail it outta here! I'm always itching to go new places and see the world, it's the romantic and spontaneous side of me.

9. I would love to own my own little shop or café, selling all home baked cakes and treats (lemon tarts hehe) and life would just be perfect.

10. I love candles, I could never get enough of them, if anyone ever wants to buy me presents, they can never go wrong with candles! I got these beautiful smelling candles for Christmas from cléments parents and ohh emm geee do they smell guuurd.

11. Daisies are my favourite flower, I will love anything with a daisy design, clothes, shoes, earrings, cups, wallpaper, anything!

Now for Cerys-Eves questions!

  1. What made you start blogging?
I started blogging after I watched beauty youtubers for awhile and started reading a lot of beauty blogs, even though I'm not ready to make any youtube videos I still love to make blog posts, taking nice photos and spending time talking and sharing with other like minded people. 

     2.  Whats your guilty pleasure?

Oh gosh I have tooo many, when I think of guilty pleasure it's always food, food is my weakness. What better feeling is there than indulging in a big mac meal with fries, and oh yes it's the large meal we're talking about here, go big or go home haha!

    3.  What brand could you not live without?

Ohhh interesting question, I guess I couldn't live without Bourjois, they are a bit hit and miss sometimes with their products, but I think on the whole they are a really good brand and I love the packaging too.

    4.  If you were an animal what animal would you be and why?

I would be a biiiiird, flying freeeee!

     5.  If you could only carry 3 makeup items in your bag what would they be and why?

Foundation, powder and mascara. Those are the essentials in my books, powder because I have oily-ish skin and if I don't powder I can just say goodbye to my foundation during the day! And mascara because my eyes look dull and tired without it.

     6.  Liquid or pencil liner?

Uhhhm, Gel! I really love the Maybelline gel liner so I'd have to choose that. But between liquid and pencil I'd go with pencil because I make such a mess when it comes to liquid liner, epic fail every time.

     7.  Is there any where that you would really love to travel to?

YES! New Zealand, I don't know why but it's been a destination on my mind for a long time, I just heard that the people are really laid back and that it has beautiful landscape, so I'm all up for that! Somebody take me? please?

     8.  Favourite book and why?

I really loved The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and that whole trilogy, but my favourite is still the first, I don't know why with the rape and everything but the whole story of this misunderstood girl who is super intelligent and bad ass just really made me love Lisbeth the main character.

    9. What is your classic look?

I go with a nude eye, just heavy on the mascara on the top eyelashes, pink cream blush on the cheeks and a pinky-nude lip. All very plain! 

10. Highend or Budget products and why?

Budget for me, I do like to indulge in a few high end products when the budget allows, but my make up definitely contains more drug store brands because over-all I like going in and rooting around those products more.

11. Every cloud has a silver lining...true or false?

I sure hope so! 

I feel like every blog I read has already done the lovely Liebster award sooooooo, if anyone is reading this and hasn't been nominated for it, I nominate YOU! Yup that's right, taking rules into ma own hands here and nominating any new bloggers on the scene to join on in here and do the following questions, please leave a comment if you decide to do it!

1. What is one of your talents that you are secretly proud of and like to do?

2. Do you have any funny hobbies like stamp collecting that not many people know you do?

3. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life what would it be?

4. Are you a home bird or do you like lots of change and travel?

5. If I told you that I put 1000 euros/pounds in your bank what would you use it for?
