Ok so a million years ago the lovely Ashii of Miss Asshii Beauty and the lovely Duvessa of One Of Beautys Daughters both nominated me for blog awards - Yay!! But, being as rubbish as I am (sorry ladies) I never got round to doing the post *smacks back of own hand!! But recently the gorgeous Nykki of Nykki's Mane Blog also gave me an award so I thought it was about time I got my act together. I'm so grateful to receive these blog awards and I didn't forget, and today I finally did my post :D

# Next answer the following questions about yourself...
-What's your favourite colour
Definitely bright Pink!! It can boost my mood in an instant (sorry Elaine...there's no hope for me haha)
Haha Thank Heaven for the Mister or that could be me in that picture!!
-What's your favourite song
Hmmm tricky...I can't pick there's too many!! We were playing a game with some friends the other weekend called Drop It Like It's Hot where each couple has a laptop and we line up tracks on Youtube and try to out do each other with classic tunes (there are forfeits involved too which often include shots :S). Somebody asked me this same question then, and not only could I not answer, but my head went completely blank of all music!!
...Right I've had time to think about it! Maybe Elbow 'One Day Like This' cos it reminds me of the Mister and always makes me smile, or Foo Fighters 'Everlong' probably for the same reason because we been to watch Foo's together so many times and it's always AMAZING!! Arrgghhh I don't know! It's too hard haha
-What's your favourite desert
Mmmm no doubts here, it's my Mums home made trifle! In the words of Homer Simpson...Aaaagggghhhhlllllghgghhlllaaa haha
-What pisses you off?
Rude people who think they can shout and stamp their feet and bully their way into getting what they want. Doesn't work with me!! And people who always blame others for their problems...Look within!
-When your upset, you?
Try to stay level headed and identify my real emotions. It's often easy to fly off the handle and over react to things...and this just leads to regret!
-Your favourite pet
Hmmm Fuddah or the Mister? Fuddah-or-the-Mister? Haha only joking Mister, it's definitely Fuddah. Although I do want to be a Hedgehog Foster Mommy over the Winter so he may have some competition haha.
-Black or White?
I like both but probably black. It hides a multitude of sins!
-Your biggest fear?
I'm not telling you my real biggest fear cos I don't tell anyone that, but I will tell you my other ones...Wasps and Tortoises. I'm terrified of both!! The only difference is that despite my fear I actually do like Tortoises, I DO NOT LIKE WASPS!!
...Urgghh!! It made my ears prickle and my toes curl just looking at pics to upload *shudders!!
-My best feature is
-My everyday attitude
Take each day as it comes, and if you don't like something about your life don't moan about it...CHANGE IT!!
-What is perfection
It's the little imperfections that I like. Makes life interesting.
Jedward hahahahahaha I LOVE THEM!! I'll probably get shot for saying that!! They are definitely the Marmite of the entertainment industry.
So cute in their little matching outfits haha.
Ok so that was Ashiis award...you still with me? Now it's time for Duvessas!! The rules for this one are as follows...
# Thank the person who tagged you and link to their blog.
- Already done above!
# Put the Top 10 Award logo on your blog.
# Choose 10 bloggers to tag, link to their blogs, and let them know.
- This is gonna be the same as the list above.
# List your top 10 cosmetics.
- So my Top 10 can't live withouts are as follows...
Clinique 3 step. The most important thing in my beauty regime is definitely skin care. I suffered skin allergies for years when I was younger and tried all the products under the sun, but as soon as I discovered the 3 step my troubles were gone. I haven't changed my skincare regime in years, but if it aint broke don't fix it!!
Joico Moisture Surge Hair Care Range. I have really, really thick unruly hair. It's got a really nice natural curl but I often wear it straight so the slightest hint of moisture or humidity means I look like Crystal Tips. Joico really helps to keep it under control. With working in a salon I also colour my hair a lot so Joico really helps to keep it moisturised and shiney. I love it!!
CND Solar Oil for Nails. In my opinion this little thing is a miracle in a bottle!! I have really dry, weak nails. I always have had, but then I was introduced to Solar Oil. I use it once or twice a day on my nails and hands and it's amazing. It moisturises like nothing I've ever found before. It's great for natural nails, Shellac, Gel, Acrylic, the lot. I always keep a little bottle with me now.
Mac Fix+. I love this stuff. It takes my makeup from flat and powdery to natural and dewy in seconds. You can mix it with shadows and pigments for a different look and it smells beautiful. I spray it all over my face in the morning and I feel really uplifted
Nina Ricci Le Paradis de Nina Eau de Toilette Spray. My all time favourite scent!! It's sweet, it's fruity, it just smells soooo good. I love it!!
St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse. I love to have a year round summer glow. Whilst this is a fairly new product, it's very quickly made it's way into my beauty must haves. It's so easy to use (no more fake tan disasters for me), it has a great colour, and the price is unbelievable.
Mac Blacktrack Fluidline is a must for me. It can take a look from drab to dramatic in seconds and it lasts all night. It does dry out a little quickly, but it's staying power for me is fabulous. I have really really watery eyes, and there are very few liners I have found that can cope with this. There are other ones out there that don't dry out as quickly, and have staying power, but I find they're too shiny or they lack in opacity, so this really is the one for me.
Mac Self Propelling Eyebrow Crayon in Lingering. I can't live without it!! I really think that brows make a look. I've been fanatical about them since I can remember. I like them to be really defined, but still natural looking and Mac SPEC gives me this every time.
Eylure Lashes are another must for me. They have a wide variety, I don't need to mess about cutting them as they're the perfect length for my eyes, the glues fine, the price is good and in my opinion they just complete a look!!
Mac Gently Off Eye & Lip Makeup Remover because at the end of the day you just need something to take it all off and this works a treat. I wear a lot of liner and mascara when I go for a full on look and this is the only thing for me that shifts it 100% and doesn't irritate my eyes. Again, I've tried many makeup removers and even found some that I like, but this is just really convenient, effective, and it's done in seconds. Does what it says on the tin!!
Ok, so that's Duvessa's award. Hang on in there though cos now it's time for Nykki's.
You'll all be thankfull to know that the rules for this one are simply to pass the award on to 10 different blogs you love and feel deserve the award (same list as above). Link them in your post and let them know you awarded them.
Phew!! There you go, the end of MEGA POST haha. Thank you so much Ladies!! Hope the rest of you have fun doing yours :D
