Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

The lovely Sarah from Seriously Shallow has nominated be for the Sisterhood Of The World Blogging Awards! She’s been so lovely to think of me for this cool award: the idea behind it is to thank people you’ve met through blogging, which I’m so thankful for!

- Set 10 questions for your nominees to answer
- Nominate 10 bloggers

My answers:

What post on your blog are you most proud of and why?
My most popular one is about the L’Oreal Infallible Nail Polish, but the one I felt the most passionate about is my review of the Benefit Push-Up Liner! The one I’m most literally proud of may actually be my Barcelona post, about my recent holiday there. I loved writing it and I think it could be a great reference if you plan to visit!

What do you do for your 'day job' if you aren't a full time blogger?
I guess we can really say I’m a student. I study Pharmacy and I’m also starting a Beautician three year course next month, but I’m already doing a bit of both as they’re my family business. 

Nail polish or eye shadow?
Next question? ;P Well, it hurts me to say nail polish, but on a daily basis I can go without eyeshadow but not without nail polish.

If you could be anyone else for a day, who would you choose?
Hard question. A version of me with superpowers counts?

What inspired you to start blogging?
I’ve been reading blogs for years (probably since the “beginning”) and I pretty much had my own in my mind. It was time to start writing about something I love so much as beauty!

Beauty product that changed your life?
I’m going to cheat a bit here, but I’m gonna say the constant innovation in foundation formulas. It might be that my skills have improved and I know how to treat my skin better at the same time, but I feel like every year they’ve improved making so easy to find something really close to perfection.

If money and pain were no objects, would you have cosmetic surgery?
I really don’t think so. I’d prefer to be truly and completely able to do what’s best for my body food and training wise as I know I can achieve awesome results if I put 100% into it.

What song would you (or have you) have played at your wedding?
Heaven from Bryan Adams, and an obscene amount of Queen songs through the whole party.

Name one beauty disaster you've had?
Orange foundation when desperately trying to make a lot of drugstore foundations work for me. It hurts me so so much!

Where do you want to be in ten years time?
Let’s say the perfect version that is nearly realistic though: an awesome and reasonably big flat with my boyfriend, and work being for the most part management and teaching in my fields. And an awesome holiday in a new place each summer! And, well, still writing about beauty. ;)

My questions:

1) When did you start blogging?
2) When was the first time you wore makeup in public?
3) What’s your job?
4) Where are you from?
5) How old are you?
6) What’s your favourite thing to buy beauty wise?
7) What’s your first makeup memory?
8) What’s your favourite food?
9) Do you go to the gym or train at home/outside? If you do!
10) Tell me about your favourite music.

My nominees:
