Liebster award: thecarolinediaries


HAPPY 200 POSTS on this blog! Well there’s probably been a bit more than that if you have been with me since the beginning.

  • I wanted to do something special for my 200th post and perfect timing, thanks to  Sydney’s, a new blogger over at sydneydee18 who has nominated me for a Liebster award.
  • I love when these awards roll around different blogs, I remember when I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award and it brings back great memories and I think these awards are just a great way to discover new blogs and overall a load of fun to write up.

So here we go, if you haven’t heard about this award yet, let’s hope you get one ( I have nominated 11 people that follow my blog, so stay tuned till the end) and hopefully you enjoy what I have here..

Sydney’s 11 questions for me

So Sydney has written up 11 questions for me to answer, this is going to be interesting.

  • What facial feature do you like playing up the most?

My eyes! I don’t even care if I don’t have any foundation on, as long as I have some mascara and eye shadow, I will be very happy until I have to take it off, but then I can always put it back on the next day!

  • When, why, and how did you start blogging?

I started blogging back early in 2012 because I loved writing, I still do and that’s probably why I am still here. It just gives me so much joy to express my thoughts and share my knowledge with everybody because that’s one way people learn, is from each other. I just looked up different blogging sites and thought I would give WordPress a go.

  • Who are the bloggers/vloggers you look up to?

I absolutely love Kalel Cullen on Frilly and Fancy, I think she is such a beautiful person and also Judy Travis from ItsJudyTime, absolutely obsessed with her vlogs on YouTube. Go check them both out, I love them both so much!

  • What’s your ideal vacation/getaway?

Somewhere in London, one day I will have high tea in London. I will make that happen.

  • Do you like the beach? 😀

Omg, it’s like this question was made up to troll me, I really don’t like the beach, well, it’s just the sand that bugs me, it gets EVERYWHERE and the fact that I live in Australia is the worst, because we have some beautiful beaches.

  • Have you been to the Philippines! Haha!

No I haven’t, but I have a lot of friends from the Phillipines here in Australia and also I was planning to go last December, but plans failed. =( Sad!

  • What comprises your everyday makeup routine?

Moisturiser plus sunscreen, primer, BB cream, concealer, pressed powder, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, bronzer and blush. In that exact order too.

  • What kind of music do you like best?

Honestly, a little bit of everything

  • What was the first makeup product you picked up? 

Lancome Kohl eyeliner, not kidding, I remember that so vividly and I still use it to this very day.

  • Do you think you’re pursuing what you were made to do?

I think I’m pursuing HALF of what I’m made to do. Knowing me I need a heap of side projects to keep my mind fresh and going

  • What’s your favorite skin care product?

Right now, my Origins checks and balances cleanser, it is the bomb dot com, but I also have a lot of favourite skin care products, I would probably need an extra 2 posts to finish that one.
