New Liebster Award | TAG

The lovely Renata from Speaking Beauty UK nominated me for the NEW Liebster Award. I really like the concept of this “new” Liebster Award, as the questions are the same for everyone making it more of a tag!
Renata writes an amazing beauty blog and I love to have a chat with her in the comments, so head straight there to have a look!

New Liebster Award TAG

1. Get nominated
2. Link back the girl/guy who nominated you
3. Do the questions
4. Nominate 5-20 people to do the questions.


1. What are your top 3 bloggers and why?
This is a pretty hard question to answer, as narrowing to just three is pretty hard. I think there’s a difference between blogs you like in general and blogs you truly enjoy reading.
So, if I had to choose blogs I like from the first category, I’d say Vivianna Does Makeup, Hello October, and A Model Recommends.
Ok, may I add another three? Beauty Isles, Laura London, The Conscience Fund.
I majorly cheated, but have a look at my One Lovely Blog Award to get an idea of how much I can go overboard with mentioning my favourite blogs.

2. What drives you?
The fact that I know that things will be ok. Whenever I feel like something isn’t going in the right direction, I focus on what I want and try to get there. It’s not a magic trick or anything, but it surely keeps me going.

3. What little thing makes you happy?
From a message from my boyfriend, to a song with attached memories, to my brother’s smile, to an unexpected gift, to a shiny new makeup product… Luckily there are a lot of little things in life that can make us happy!

4. What is your dream job/ personal goal?
No question would have been more tricky for me. I love beauty, I love to write about it and I love to teach. I also love organizing things and management in a way. I’m studying pharmacy and starting an esthetician course, so let’s see where they’ll get me!

5. Do you have a favourite food?
I was going to say chocolate, but then Currywurst came to mind. Oh yes!

6. What is your favourite beauty brand? (makeup or facial care, or hair etc)
Next question please. Makeup wise, while from my Top 10 Tag might seem that I’m quite a MAC girl, I’d never say it’s my favourite brand. I have quite a penchant for Chanel, as I always jump at the chance to check their latest collections. For a lover end brand I really love L’Oréal as they always make amazing products, but I can’t mention Too Faced for eyeshadows. Oh wait, and Nars!
Skincare wise I’m having quite a Kiehl’s and Alpha-H moment (see more about it here!), but I can’t forget my all time favourite La Roche Posay.
Hair wise I don’t have too much to say, as I’ve been using Garnier for ages, but I love all my Bumble & Bumble products.

7. Favourite clothes shop?
It used to be GAP (I literally wore that brand for everything for a couple of years), then the selection at my store or here in Italy started to get really awful and now I only use a few basics from there.
I am a big H&M lover, but more for the good basics (which are pretty much all I wear, though!) than for anything else. Another brand worth mentioning is Mango as I’ve been loving them more and more, but I often shop for clothes in various places, especially for pieces that are a bit more of a quality investment. 

8. What would be your spirit animal and why?
I’d say a cat, mostly because they’re an animal I truly love and one I would happily swap a few of my daily hours with, lol!

9. Why did you start blogging?
I’ve been reading beauty blogs for years (maybe since 2009 but maybe even earlier) and as I’ve already mentioned I’ve had my own in my mind for ages. Literally, every time I’d try a new product I’d review it in my mind day after day. I couldn’t wait any longer!

10. Have you changed much over the last year?
I’d say yes. I’m finally “getting somewhere” in so many aspect of my life and this undoubtedly is changing me every day!

11. If you could star in a TV series based on your life, what would it be? (sitcom, drama etc...)
Ehm… This is really a strange question, something like Gilmore Girls instantly came to mind but I’m not to sure I’d be right!




  1. I also feel very happy whenever I buy a makeup product:)
    Great answers

  2. Thank you for mentioning me, lovely! :) We do enjoy a good chat every now and again, don't we? :D I think these tags are so good for us to get to know each other a bit better. I love your blog! Looking forward to reading more reviews and more about you in the future. xx


  3. I'm always grinning when I read your posts. :-) I love these because I get to know you all (my blogger friends) better. I haven't shopped in GAP for years, I feel like the quality of their clothes has changed. :/ And since my Chanel haul a few weeks back, I've find myself drawn to the brand more and more. It might become a dangerous situation. P.S. My (little) brother's smile makes me happy too. :-) Thank you, as always, for the mention and for thinking of me, Gyudy. xoxo
