I was recently nominated by Becky to receive the Liebster Award, thank you Becky! So what is the Liebster Award? It’s not a physical award like you may think, it’s sort of like a chain and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It’s basically a great way for your followers to get to know you a little better and to discover new blogs.

The rules are:

1. Thank and link the person who nominated you.
2. Answer the nominators 11 questions.
3. Nominate 11 small blogs who have less than 200 followers. You should believe that they deserve this award and include their link in your post.
4. Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer. Notify these nominees via social media/blog.

Here are my answers to the questions Becky asked:

Why did you start blogging?
Well I have a huge love for fashion (I know I don’t post much fashion related posts at the moment, but I will in time) and beauty, I’d been following bloggers and youtubers for a little while and thought I’d give it a go.

Who, what, and/or where does your blogging inspiration come from?
I would say mainly from youtubers like Essie Button, Fleur de Force & Vivianna Does Makeup. They were the first 3 I discovered and I’m always watching their videos.

What does your family think about your blogging?
They are really supportive about it and enjoy reading my blog. I’ll be honest, at first I was a little hesitant about sharing it with them but I’m glad I did. Hi guys if you’re reading this lol!

What time of day do you write the best content for your blog?
I would say early evening.

What is your favourite quote?
Errr I don’t actually have one! lol

What is the best thing about you?
Oh dear haha I’d like to think I’m extremely loyal and kind. I think I make a great friend! lol

What makes you laugh out loud?
A LOT of things. I’m very easily amused. But I would say mainly my dog, Ruby. She’s a funny little thing.

If you were the main character in a movie, which actress would you want to play your role?
Well Nina Dobrev is my favourite actress, so probably her. Even though she is ALOT prettier than me. lol

What did you want to be when you were a child?
A popstar! What child doesn’t want to be a popstar?!

What was your favourite class in High School?
Art. Even though I wasn’t very good at it!

spring fragrances

With the warmer weather having now arrived and hopefully here to stay, its the perfect time to start wearing those fresh springtime fragrances. These three that I chose also happen to be my favourite perfumes, they smell absolutely wonderful and are definitely perfect for spring. However, if you don’t like floral scents then these perfumes may not be for you!

Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina Eleganza
This perfume is probably not one I would of ever thought to purchase with my own money, however last year I won it on London Beauty Queens blog and I absolutely adore it! The scent is a lot stronger then the other two mentioned, however not too strong (I absolutely hate really strong scents, they give me headaches!). It has top notes of grapefruit and pear, mid notes of almond powder and golden osmanthus petals which adds a touch of luxury to the fragrance and is then finished off with patchouli and white leather!

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
My overall favourite perfume that I was dying to get my hands on for ages and finally received it last Christmas! This perfume has become my signature scent so it does get a lot more wear then the other two. An absolutely gorgeous sweet, floral scent with top notes of mandarin and orange, mid notes of Sambac jasmine with a hint of orange tree, Catleya orchid, freesia, Centifolia rose and patchouli, just like Signorina Eleganza above. This perfume is absolutely beautiful!

Marc Jacobs Daisy
Last but not least, the perfume everyone seems to have and love, Marc Jacobs Daisy! This was actually my first ever perfume after I only recently in the last few years took interest in perfumes. This perfume is probably the most fresh and light of the three, the most perfect for spring. The top notes include strawberry and violet leaves, mid notes include violet petals and jasmine bouquet finishing off with musk and vanilla infusion! Lovely.

What are your favourite springtime fragrances?

Hello everyone,
welcome to my blog!
My name’s Laura, I’m 22 and I’m a fashion and beauty addict. My love of fashion has been around for years, yet my love for make up is actually fairly new. I never used to be that bothered about make up until about a year ago, then I started watching beauty videos on YouTube, then found beauty blogs and eventually ended up a bit of an addict! My collection is growing and growing and I thought now was the right time to finally start up my own blog!
I hope you enjoy it and keep visiting!
Thank you,
