Thank you very much to the lovely Karen from Trendy Me Trendy You, for nominating me for a Liebster award! I'm so grateful :) If any of you are wondering what a Liebster award is, then you are not on your own!

Answers to Karen's Questions:

Do you prefer high street or designer? This is very hard, my student life won't let me afford designer and as much as I would love to wear Chanel everyday, I do love the high street! I strongly believe that you don't need to spend a fortune to be fashionable, as high street stores are always so on-trend. I prefer to look at designer, but for my style and budget I love the highstreet.

Favorite City? From where I have visited so far, I would have to say London. Every time I go I get goose bumps. However, I am dyeing to see cities like New York, Paris and Barcelona, so I may have to get back to you on that one.

Favorite Shopping Place? I would have to say Manchester City Centre. They have all I need: a big Topshop, Zara, a big H&M, Urban Outfitters, a good Primark, Mango and Selfridges.

Why did you start blogging? I started blogging after feeling inspired from meeting and interviewing loads of fab fashion bloggers at an event I worked at in Manchester. Also, as I study Fashion Promotion, a fashion blog is a good way to get all my ideas and creative thoughts down.

If you could only live with 5 beauty items, what would they be? *Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation *Eyebrow pencil *Red lipstick *Collection 2000 mascara *Simple moisturizer.

What do you do in your spare time? Relax! My favourite days are snuggy days off, watching film marathons and eating too much chocolate. :) Or go shopping and dress up and get merry with friends!

How happy are you right now? Fairly happy. I'm well, enjoying my work, have fab friends and family and in a happy relationship with my boyfriend Aaron, so can't complain!

Favorite Hair Product? Argan Oil. I have really damaged hair from bleach and Argan oil is making it a lot softer!
 Favorite Brand? My ultimate favorite is Valentino, although I can only dream and not actually buy! Other favorite's would have to be: Topshop and Zara.

What would be your advice to new bloggers? As I'm a new blogger too, I have tons to learn myslef, but if i could think of good advice, I would probably say- only write posts about things that you would be interested to see on someone else's blog. Don't just blog for the sake of it, save posts for things you really care about and really want to share with others.
