Liebster Nomination

Yes, that is a picture of me when I was 3 and yes, I still can't wink properly!!! :)

I have recently been nominated by one of my followers for a Liebster Award Nomination.  Until yesterday I'd never heard of this but having researched it it's a way of helping new Bloggers (like little old me!) to get noticed and gain new followers to their blogs.

A few people have asked about what 'Liebster' means....I knew that German GCSE would come in handy at some point! The word 'Liebe' if I remember rightly means to like / love so I'm guessing it's like a 'favourite' Blogger award type thingy!

So here goes.  The lovely Leah nominated me from Make Up Hair and Fashion so thanks for that! :)

Here are my answers to her questions

1. How long have you been blogging for?
I've started my blog in February when I got back from Dubai - I was totally inspired by Laura from Buy Now Blog Later.  I absolutely love her blog and style! Since then I've really got into discovering new blogs. 

2. What is your favourite mascara?

Best budget mascara is Maybelline The Falsies, I really like the brush and its cheap as chips! My favourite high end mascara is the YSL Babydoll mascara, it creates volume, separates and lasts really well. 

3. What is your favourite lipstick?

I'm cheating, I have two! MAC Shy Girl - this is my everyday go to lipstick, it goes with any make up look and isn't too drying.  I've recently discovered Tom Ford's Spanish Pink also - another firm fave!

4. Where do you shop the most?

That's very easy for me - Zara.  I have an actual obsession with this shop!!

5. What is your favourite perfume?

My favourite perfume is actually too expensive for me to go out and buy at the moment!! It's the Armani Prive collection in Jade.  

6. Best item purchased in the last 12 months

Thought long and hard about this and it's definitely going to be skincare as I've really started to take care of my skin and have noticed such a difference since I have.  It will be the Pixi Glow Tonic and the Emma Hardie face balm cleanser. 

7. What is your favourite hair product?

I have got through bottles and bottles of the Elnette Heat Protective Style spray over the last year or so, so it has to be this!

8. Best thing to take your make up off with?

Oh dear, I've just answered this but its the Emma Hardie Cleansing balm, and copious amounts of face flannels (one a day!) 

9. Favourite Drug Store Brand?

Torn between Maybelline and Bourjois!

10. Favourite Moisturiser?

Anything from the La Roche Posay range, they're all pretty good.

11. Favourite thing about Blogging?
A chance to get a bit creative, talk with other make up / shopping addicts and share great recommendations (and create a never ending shopping list reading other people's blogs!) 

Now for 11 Facts About Me! (if you aren't already bored!) 

1. As far as I know, I'm the only Elisabeth Rilatt in the whole world, and I think that's kinda cool!
2. My surname is German in origin, however I think it's generations ago! 
3. I'm 34 years old and was born in September, I'm a true Virgo and possess all the Virgo traits!
4. I have quite a bad case of OCD and I'm a bit of a neat freak.  I can't stand mess, everything has to be at right angles on my desk at work and I'm super clean - sometimes I wish I wasn't like this! :(
5. I lived in the country when I was growing up in a cottage with my parents and sister, my parents still live there and I love going there to get away from the hustle and bustle of living in a  city. 
6. I work in recruitment and have done for almost 9 years, it's a tough industry but very rewarding and often very funny!
7. I love music and often listen to help relax / cheer myself up / motivate - and the type of music depends on my mood.  I do have a love for house music though, particularly deep house, I often think about learning how to mix music - if only I had more time!
8.  I have a lot of time for those people in my life I care dearly about - my Mum and Dad, my FiancĂ© Joe, and my best friend Sian.  Without these people I'd be lost. 
9. I enjoy cooking, and more so eating! side note - the only thing I dislike about cooking is the way it makes my clothes and hair stink afterwards!!
10. I'm obsessed with neutral coloured clothes - I'm trying very hard to introduce colour and patterns!
11. I'm addicted to buying and selling on eBay!! (and my iPhone!)
