My THIRD Liebster Award!...

The lovely Taylor over at Taylor De Vil nominated me for a Liebster Award last Monday - thanks for starting off my week so brilliantly my dear ♥ So without further ado, here we go, starting with the rules...

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. Display the award on your blog.
3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. Nominate 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers.
5. Create a new list of questions for the bloggers to answer.
6. List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
7. Inform the people/blogs that you choose that they have been nominated for the Liebster Award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)

And here are the questions Taylor asked me:

1.What is your #1 beauty brand you stand by? 
There isn't any one brand that I support exclusively because every company has its duds, however L'Occitane skin care has impressed me the most, and I reckon I probably have more Maybelline items in my cosmetic kit than any other...

2.Somewhere you would love to travel & why? 
Oooooh Egypt - the Nile, Giza Plateau, Cairo Museum, Luxor, Abu Simbel... A huge part of me wants to go there, but there's another part that just knows I'll spend the whole time getting all teary over the magnificence and beauty of it all (I'd better pack the waterproof mascara!). Actually I've been to Egypt before, but not in this life... 

3.Something you are passionate about?
C O L O U R (as if you didn't know lol)...

4.Your favourite Fashion Trend right now, if nothing now, your favourite past Trend? 
I'm a nutter for boots, whether they're trendy or not - ankle, suede, studded, knee length, buckled, plain leather, fringed, flat, lace up, riding, pull-on, stiletto... Every winter I go crazy and buy more, but I'm ruthless with my culling, so that makes it ok, right?

5.What's one thing your followers may not know about you?
I fancied myself as a bit of singer in my youth - took singing lessons for 5 years to learn how to project my voice, and recorded a few radio commercials. I still sing when I'm driving (alone) in the car - with all the windows up of course ha ha...

6.If you were stuck on an island, what are 3 beauty products you would need with you?
Damn, I thought it said 33! Kosmea Rescue Balm, Dove Body Silk, Dove deodorant stick - couldn't bear being stinky or shrivelled when the rescue chopper arrived...

7.One beauty product or Trend (past or present) you wish you could banish from the world?
Ridiculously long pointy toed-shoes - whoever designed them absolutely HATES women. Excrutiatingly painful to wear, and to me they are downright ugly...

8.Your favourite bloggers?
There are SO many that I love and follow, but here's a handful that get me all excited when they appear in my Bloglovin emails...

9.Your favourite thing about your hometown?
I was born in Melbourne but have spent most of my life in Sydney. I'm living north of Sydney now with an ocean view that I won't be giving up anytime soon - the sea and the fresh air keep me calm and sane...

10.All time favourite movie(s)?
I've been asked this three times now (thank goodness!), so I'll continue on where I left off - in the drama department, I can't go past The Hunt for Red October, Mississippi Burning, Schindler's List, Braveheart, Dances With Wolves, Three Days of the Condor, The Long Kiss Goodnight, The Bodyguard. Ok that'll do for this round...

11.Your favourite things about blogging?
The outlet for creativity and self expression, chatting with my gorgeous gal pal followers, the amazing support from other bloggers, taking photographs, brightening someone's day with a giveaway...

Like my 2nd Liebster Award, I'm reserving the right to NOT nominate anyone as it's quite a task to put one of these posts together, and I don't want to burden any of my beloved blogger beauties with the extra work, and they've all been nominated anyway, in some cases, multiple times!

But if any blogger is reading this and wants to join in the fun, please do so, and post a link in the comments section so I can learn a bit more about  you 

1. What's your favourite precious stone?
2. If you could be reborn, what colour eyes and hair would you wish for?
3. Is there a famous person in the world today that you admire - why?
4. If you could swallow a pill and be talented at anything instantly, what would you choose?

5. What's the earliest recollection of your childhood?
6. What feature are you complimented on most often?
7. What is the most unusual clothing item you've ever purchased?
8. If you were an animal, an insect or a bird, what would you be?
9. What is your favourite flower?
10.You have unlimited funds, so what does your dream house look like?
11. What's the story behind choosing your blog title?

Take care of  you,

  1. Congrats kat I'm a big if a singer too lol

    1. Hey doll, doesn't it feel great to sing with all your might? It's definitely therapeutic ♡

  2. Kats I ♥ your boot collection! I've got a case of shoe envy as I type...I confess my eyes were drawn to your navy booties, naturally (you know me and my love of all things blue LOL). Totally agree with your answer for #7 - I loathe pointy toed shoes of any type, especially since I don't have the feet for them (plus they're a tripping hazard, as I've discovered). I love singing too, have done so since I was a child.

    Oh and congrats on another award! You deserve it. :o)

    1. Oh wow Seashells, delighted to discover another anti-pointy shoe gal, and you sing too? I'd be weaving baskets every day if I couldn't sing ♡

  3. Kat I'm a boot lover too! It's basically the only type of shoe that I happily buy and when summer rolls around I get quite lost on what to wear haha

  4. Hailey I have the same problem - I LIVE in boots as soon as the weather cools down, probably 6 months of the year. For five months I wear sandals or toe peepers, and then there's this odd 1 month period when I wear "shoes" - lol I only have 3 pairs of real shoes!
