The Versatile Blogger Award!

A & C: recently we were lucky enough to be nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Lainey Loves Life – a blog we recently discovered and now love! We wanted to thank Lainey for the nomination, we really do appreciate it and recommend that you go and check out her blog! It includes all our favourite things: beauty and make up, lifestyle and food and some cheeky baby related posts too!

IMG_0066

(we have included the image she created for the award, cos lets be honest… that takes some serious skills right?!)

So here are the rules of the award: 

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
    + (written in the about section of VBA) When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them. Honor those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.

Our nominations:

As Seen be Bea by Bea – great make up tutorials and reviews

Little Bit Soph by Sophie – a beauty and lifestyle blog with great photography

Lipsticks and Coffee by Fatima – a beauty and lifestyle blog

Ravishing Roses by Ana – another lovely beauty blogger with great photos

Helpless Whilst Drying by Rachael – a beauty blogger we love in real life as well as online!

Confetti and Curves by Karen – another beauty blogger and creator of “behind the blog” which we love!

Wonderwolf – amazing nail tutorials!

Glitter Pots and Lipgloss by Holly – a lovely lady with great product reviews and tutorials

Rachwat by Rach – one of the first blogs we discovered!

The Fashion Huntress – an amazing fashion blog that shows how many great bargains are available!

Making It Up by Jess – another beauty blogger with great recommendations and lovely photos

Now I am afraid thats not 15 recommendations/nominations… but we wanted to only nominate those blogs that we truly enjoy reading as otherwise these awards seem a little pointless! So we honestly read these blogs regularly and think you would enjoy them!

7 things about us:

  • We have known each other since high school, but only ended up being such good friends after Chloe finished uni!
  • Chloe is having a baby in September and Annie cannot wait to be an Auntie!
  • Annie is getting married next year and Chloe can’t wait to not be pregnant and to drink lots of wine at her wedding.
  • We like to spend our Saturdays going out for lunch and going bargain shopping. Our ideal Saturday morning is spent looking round antique emporiums.
  • We spend most of the day either texting or sending horrendous snapchats of our horrendous faces and being amused that we are beauty bloggers.
  • Both of our boyfriends are also friends… it makes for interesting evenings at each others, great BBQs and interesting camping adventures.
  • We both like food far too much, particularly cheese, bread and wine.

So there we have it! Our nominations and some fabulous facts about us! We can’t wait to see your responses, make sure you leave us a link to your posts if you choose to do one! #twolittleowls

pastel

A & C: We got nominated for an award recently by Rachael from “rachwat” so we thought we had better reply with our answers to her questions! (we love these posts as we are very nosey).

1. What’s your most recent purchase?

C: We recently went to London and visited Lush. I got Eau Roma Water, MMMelting Marshmallow Moment and the bubblegum lip scrub.

A: Again, from our Lush Trip the Mint Julips Lip Scrub, the Comforter Bubblebar and Ultrabland. Post to come soon!

2. If you could get one product for free, what would you choose and why?

C: A Burberry handbag, because I love them so much and I will never be able to afford one (unless I win the lottery)

A: A mac book. I want/need one so bad 😦
3. What’s you’re favourite nail varnish?

C: I am far too fickle to have a favourite nail varnish for longer than about a week. Currently I am loving my Soigne nail polish in Persimmon. The perfect Summer to Autumn shade.

A: I Love a black nail varnish and my Leighton Denny sees me right through the year.
4. What’s your hair saviour?

C: my tangle teezer! I have no idea how I used to cope without it, my hair is so thick and unruly!

A: gotta be the same as Chloe on this one – my tangle teezer is the best hair product purchase I’ve made!
5. What is your favourite piece of clothing?

C: my new “janket” – we made that word up. Its basically a blanket/jacket in a monochrome/tartan pattern and its amazing. I won’t ruin it too much as it will definitely be featured in an OOTD soon!

A: my Mum recently knitted me a crazy cardigan and it’s so warm and snuggly and lovely. Not the most fashionable thing I own but it’s one of those things that you can put on and don’t even care what you look like cause it’s just TOO comfy.
6. What’s your favourite candle scent?

C: currently it is my toasted marshmallow Yankee Candle, but I love all Yankee Candles!

A: I love my chocolate orange scents that I use in my Bomb Cosmetics oil burner. Not gonna lie, I’ve been very tempted to eat them.

7. What are you most excited for this Autumn?

C: Autumn clothes, having the fire going, buying loads more boots that I do not need and wearing woolly socks in bed!

A: candles, autumn food, Halloween (YES), cosy cardies, woolly tights, crisp cool mornings, having the woodburner on at home, boots, using my new umbrella, wearing my parker. I basically love this time of year and could go on forever.

8. What’s your go to fragrance?

C: Amor Amor by Cacharel. I have always loved it

A: Jimmy Choo Flash
9.What drink do you order at a coffee shop?

C: I don’t really shop in coffee shops? I like to save my pennies for make up/clothes! I drink black coffee though, because I’m hardcore like that.

A: Those really yummy (calorific) strawberry and cream coolers from Costa are my fav.

10. Do you think you’ll still be blogging in five years?

A & C: we really hope so!

The Beauty Blogger of the Month Award

the-beauty-blogger-of-the-month-award

A & C: The lovely Rach at rachwat has nominated us for The Beauty Blogger of the Month Award, and we are super happy!! Rach runs a fashion and beauty blog which you should definately go and check out for some serious style inspo.

The Beauty Blogger of the Month Award is something which Cecilia over at Cecilia’s Corner has started – it’s an amazing idea which helps all of us bloggers get to know one another. Click here for her post on the award, with all of the rules and regulations.

Here are the questions Cecilia has set for nominees to answer…

1. Where does your makeup inspiration come from?

A: Chloe and my Mum I guess, I used to be super rubbish at make-up but now I love it like an addiction. My Mum has beautiful skin and hardly needs to wear any make-up so I try not to wear too much either, but Chloe has taught me the ways of contouring and blending.

C: My sister taught me so much about make-up, and I love watching Zoella and Essie Button videos for inspo.

2. What are 3 of your makeup Holy Grail products you cannot live without?

A: Mac Prep & Prime BB cream, Benefit They’re Real Mascara and Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Wash (i know this isn’t make-up but it really is one of my Holy Grail products!)

C: Elf eyebrow kit – best I have tried and super cheap! Benefit they’re real mascara and Clinique dramatically different moisturising gel – not make up but gives me the perfect base for applying my face!

3. What is your makeup signature look which you have on most of the time?

A: Liquid liner and nude/brown based lip colour.

C: a smokey eye, winged eyeliner and nude lipstick.

4. Let us know your favorite makeup brands?

A: bare Minerals and Mac.

C: Mac, benefit, rimmel

5. Your ultimate makeup pet peeve?

A: Bad eyeliner flicks. And thick black pencil under the water line. ARGH!

C: foundation lines round your chin/jaw and bad blending!

6. You’ve heard about all the hype on this makeup item, bought it, tried it and don’t understand what all the fuss is about…Name that product!

A: Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser… I’m sorry everyone! I just don’t get it!

C: benefit browzings! It’s good… But my elf version does just as good a job and it’s a fraction of the price!

7. Concealer OR foundation ONLY for the rest of your life. Choose one and tell us the reason!

A: I don’t wear a liquid foundation but I’m not sure I could manage without my bare Minerals powder!

C: foundation. I don’t get very many blemishes etc

And our nominations are…

Act Fashionably

Beauty in Beta

Which Beauty Box UK

More Liebster Award Chatter

liebsterblogaward

A & C: Wow! Another Liebster Award from Jacquelyn at The Little Scottish Corner, thank you so much 🙂

The rules are the usual:

1. Provide a link back to the blogger who nominated you

2. Post 11 random facts about you

3. Answer 11 random questions set by the blogger who nominated you

4. Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers for the award (excluding who nominated you)

5. Let the nominees know you have nominated them

However, because we’ve racked up quite a few of the

So here’s the questions we were asked…

1. Can you remember what your first piece of make-up was?

A: Mascara, I have such fair eyelashes that it’s the one thing I don’t leave the house without!

C: I remember owning a pink glittery eyeshadow that I used to put on all the way up to my eyebrows and a glittery pink lipgloss. I thought I looked AMAZING.

2. Do you prefer summer or winter trends?

A: Ohhh this is difficult, but i’ll probably have to say Winter. I like wooly tights, hats and coats too much.

C: I prefer winter clothes because I love layering and mixing up patterns. I always feel like my outfits are boring in the summer!

3. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

A: I’d love to see the Northern Lights, so probably Norway.

C: I reeeeally want to go to New York, but when I have loads of money saved. I wouldn’t want to go and not be able to buy everything and do everything I wanted (I’m sure this will never happen).

4. Least favourite food?

A: Bananas, the food of the devil.

C: Celery. Disgusting and minus calories = pointless.

5. Do you have any siblings and did you get along with them?

A: An older brother, James. Yeah he’s my big brother so he looks after me.

C: an older sister and an older and younger brother. We have always all got on, we are a massive crazy family when we are together!

6. Favourite colour and least favourite colour?

A: Green is my favourite and purple is my least favourite.

C: Green/blue are my favourites and I hate bright oranges (apart from Annie’s hair, cue impressed face from Annie. Not.).

7. Do you collect anything?

A: Junk, clutter and all things vintage. I also have an obsession with pretty drinking glasses.

C: I collect make up, perfume and vintage bags.

8. In a years time can you still see yourself blogging?

A: Hopefully!

C: I hope so!

9. Best drugstore product and best high end product?

A: Best drug store has got to be Loreal’s gentle eye make up remover (we will be doing a review on make up removers soon so keep following!!), and high end is Clinique’s anti-blemish solutions clinical clearing gel.

C: Best drug store product has to be my Cetraben moisturiser, my skin literally cannot cope without it. My favourite high end product would have to be Cliniques Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel, it is the only face moisturiser I ever use (can you tell I like moisturising?!).

10. Signature hairstyle?

A: dragged through a hedge backwards/trying to be curly.

C: Messy, bed hair curls/waves or up in a high bun. Neat hair freaks me out/makes me think people have too much spare time.

11. All time favourite band or musician?

A: This is rubbish but its got to be either Tenacious D or Florence and the Machine.

C: Annie’s answer is amazing. I can’t pick a favourite (I have a thing about hating music snobs… most of my friends are music snobs though) so I will just say that the 500 days of summer soundtrack is my fave.
