Blog Awards and Beauty Link Love

I was lucky enough to receive four blog awards over the past week and it’s such a complement that Beauty Soiree was even thought of for a nomination so thank you to the beautiful blogging beauties Katelyn, Megan, Jenn, Ana, Joan and Olivia.
For those who I have nominated – congratulations, I did take some time carefully handpicking these blogs to share some link love and I think these nominations are well deserved but please feel no pressure to pass these on, I know it can be a little daunting to find blogs to link these awards back too as there are so many amazing blogs out there and I’m sure you, as am I are discovering new favourites everyday.
Best Blog Award

1.       Link back to the person(s) who awarded you.
A HUGE thank you to the beautiful Katelyn and Megan from Crosswire Dreamers as well as gorgeous Jenn from Pinkpurse21.
2.       List seven random facts about yourself.

·         I have a fear of crossing busy roads. I’m always the one that gets left on the other side while everyone has quickly run across. I will go out of my way to ensure I cross safely at a crossing.
·         I have commitment issues especially when it comes to big purchases, for example my poor car is on its last legs but I can’t seem to let it go and look to purchase a new one.
·         I fly to Queensland’s Hamilton Island in 35 days, I’m so in need of this holiday and I cannot wait.  
·         I just discovered I carry around 15 lip glosses/lipsticks in my bag - no wonder my bag feels so heavy.
·         I collect programmes from stage shows and concerts,  so far I have collected programmes from: Jersey Boys, Wicked, Christina Aguleria Back to Basics, Lady Gaga The Monster Ball, Mamma Mia, Grease and Dirty Dancing… just to name a few.
·         I have just discovered my love of plum eyeshadows, I have always been conservative with colours and stick to neutrals but I currently love a plum hue blended into my crease.
·         I love scarves, I have an every growing scarf collection and they are my favourite clothing accessory all year round.   

3.       Award 15 of your BEST blogs.

4.       Answer the following questions:

Your favourite colour: Purple and Turquoise
Your favourite song: Chris Brown – She Ain’t You (love the sample of MJ’s Human Nature)
Your favourite desert: Sticky Date Pudding or Tiramisu.
When you’re upset, you: Either get really snappy or sulky, I’d rather be alone then off load my feelings.
Your favourite pet: I don’t have a pet (yet) but I share my sister’s dog as she lives next door and she has a little Jack Russell cross named Jack.
Black or White: Black, they say its slimming.
Your biggest fear: Paranormal activity; totally freaks me out yet I’m somewhat intrigued.   
Everyday attitude: Treat others how you wish to be treated yourself.
What is perfection? Good question… is there such thing as perfection? I think it’s very subjective and as long as you feel content within yourself that’s all that should matter. Look what happened to poor Natalie Portman’s character in Black Swan when she was striving to reach someone else’s perception of perfection.
Your guilty pleasure: Reality TV – some of my favourites are: The Kardashian Series, Jerseylicious and Don’t Tell the Bride UK.
