The I <3 Food Tag

A & C: We spotted this on Raindrops & Teacups blog and although she didn’t tag us to do it, we really wanted to have a go because… well we basically love food. You should also go and check out her blog because it really is lovely 🙂

What’s your favourite food?

A: Cheese. 100%. I love all the cheeses.

C: Cheese, bread and pecan plaits (I have gone through a weird obsession where I have to have one every day… starting to get over it now but it was a tough couple of weeks).

Any weird foods you like?

A: I could sit and eat a whole jar of pickled beetroot pretty easily. Not a weird food but the amount of it that I eat is weird, but it’s healthy so it’s allowed.

C: Pickled onions, everyone thinks they are gross but I love them.

Favourite vegetable?

A: Sweet potato. Love that stuff.

C: Sweet potato and sweetcorn. Basically all the sweet stuff apparently.

Favourite fast food?

A: This is totally gross but when I’m hungover I love a dirty burger from Burger King.

C: (totally lolled at the use of “dirty burger”). I also love a good Burger King or a McDonalds chicken burger. Basically… all the (dirty) burgers.

Favourite Sauce?

A: Depends on the food that I’m dipping but I love ketchup/salad cream/mango chutney (or chuckney as my bf thinks it’s called).

C:All the sauces! My boyfriend calls me “saucy mc-saucerson” not because I’m super-sexy-saucey but because I have to put sauce on EVERYTHING I eat. Same as Annie though, I love ketchup, salad cream, mayo, BBQ and mango chutters!

Chinese or Indian?

A: Indian.

C:Indian every time. I am partial to a Chinese every now and again though.

Food pet hates?

A: Peanut butter in general. Especially when people eat it with their mouth open. WHAT.

C:People eating loudly = VOM. I have to walk away. I also hate celery, aubergine (aka dead peoples skin) and eating meat off the bone.

Pizza Hut or Domino’s?

A: Domino’s.

C:Domino’s every time! I love their garlic and herb dip!

Name three foods you could never live without

A: Cheese (see above), beetroot (see above…) and cereal.

C:Bread, cheese and Marmite.

A food you hate?

A: Cucumber. And Bananas. They’re the worst.

C: I answered this earlier, dayum. I do eat bananas though… because I know they are good for me so I force them down. I only eat half though (before vommage) and then get made fun of at work!

Favourite restaurant chain?

A: Nandos! Although Chloe and I went to a GBK for the first time a few weeks ago and it was like we had died and gone to heaven.

C: Gourmet Burger Kitchen is now my favourite too (we shall be posting photos soon of all the amazing things we had to eat there!)

Three most important things at a restaurant

A: Food, value for money, cleanliness and service.

C: Cleanliness, nice people/atmosphere and the food has got to taste good!

We had loads of fun doing this, and we tag anyone who has read this! #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!

We tag everyone who reads this post – let us know what your answers are, we love reading about you! #twolittleowls

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…
