The Liebster Award | Katastrophique

The Liebster Award

Song for the Day: Wouldn’t It Be Nice – The Beach Boys

Because The Beach Boys’ Greatest Hits was on repeat at work today.

I got my new phone today!  It’s a rose gold iPhone 6s and I am in love with it!  It’s so smoooooth…


The lovely Jamie-Leigh nominated me for the Liebster Award!  Thank you once again; it’s a bit of an honour 🙂

The Liebster Award

The award works like this: 1) the person who nominated you answers 11 questions and nominates 11 people. 2) they create 11 more questions for their nominees.  3) Those nominated will, in turn, answer those questions, nominate 11 other bloggers, and write a new set of 11 questions for those nominees.

Here are my answers to Jamie-Leigh’s questions:

1) Favorite blog topics to read?

I love to read “Top 10” posts and lists.  I love seeing people’s favourite things or tips!  I like lifestyle blogs in general because of the mix of content.  I do have a soft spot for beauty bloggers too – my lipstick collection is spiralling out of control!

2) What is your favorite drugstore product and why?

I would be nowhere without my Micellar Cleansing Water and Batiste Dry Shampoo for medium brunettes!  The cleanser is light and so so so efficient, and the dry shampoo doesn’t give me dandruff and saves me on no-wash days.  I feel slightly more human with these!

3) What is the best advice you’ve ever received (blogging or life in general)?

“Do what’s best for you.”

It’s something I’m trying to implement more and more now.

4) Coffee or Tea?


5) Favorite School memory?

I’m not sure.  Either hanging out in lunchtimes with my friends or my A-level French classes I think.

6) First celebrity crush?

I kind of answered this a couple of posts ago; you can read it here.

7) Would you rather delete all of your blog posts and start from scratch or never be able to blog again? (and why?)

Would I be able to keep the Twitter girls?  I’d rather start again from scratch if it was only post-wise, but if it meant losing my community I’d rather not blog again.

8) Your go to party song?

Beyoncé – Drunk in Love

9) Favorite place you’ve ever been?


10) What is the best thing blogging has done for you?

Made me network!  Which in turn just made me realise I missed tonight’s #thegirlgang chat… Dammit

11) What advice would you give to a brand new blogger?

Do it for yourself not the fame/followers.
