Liester Award!!

16:17 3
Liester Award!!
Hi everyone! I was nominated for the Liebster award by Mehreen S
The Liebster Award is an initiative designed to promote new and/or small blogs.

How does it work? 

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you and answer the 11 questions they asked you with their nomination.

2. You must pick 11 nominees and tell them that they've been nominated. You cannot pick the person who nominated you.

3. You must ask your nominees the 11 questions
 of your choice.

My answers to Mehreen's questions:

1. What's your favourite skin care product?
I love love love the Simple Skincare line, the products are so gentle and don't break me out. Their fragrance free which I also love because I use them at night too so there isn't a strong smell off my face when I'm trying to sleep.

2. If you could be any celebrity for the day, who would it be?
Hmm... Does a YouTube Beauty Guru count as someone famous? Haha, if so then I would Ciaoobelllaxo (Megan). This isn't going to be a shock to many people because everyone know how much I love her. 

3. What's the best present you've received?
Proabably my GHD from my boyfriend! I use it every single day.. I'd hate to imagine my hair without it haha

4. What's your favourite designer?
Michael Kors 

5. If you could choose one make up company to work with, who would it be?
I would have to say Benefit. They have such a great range of products and people never seem to have much problems with them.

6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
I hope to be a qualified Beauty Therapist. I also hope to be a part-time beauty blogger/vlogger.

7. What's your favourite online shopping website?

8. What book have you read recently, and enjoyed?
Oh my when was the time I read a book?! I remember reading Katie Pipers book My Beautiful Face a couple of months back which I really enjoyed.

9. How did you think of your blog name?
It was pretty simple really, I just used my initals and added the word beauty to the end of it. Nothing too extreme!

10. Tea or coffee?
Tea! Definitely tea. If I could only drink one drink for the rest of my life it would be tea...

11. What's your favourite beauty product at the moment?
I'm not sure if this counts as a beauty product but I assuming it would. I'd have to say the St. Tropez Gradual Tan Moisturiser, it gives such a warm and subtle glow!

The 11 people I choose: 

My Questions:
1. Who's your favourite Beauty Blogger?

Review: Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Body Butter

Review: Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Body Butter

So I picked up this product in the after Christmas sales, it came in a set with a loofah and Soap & Glorys Foam Call bath and shower wash.
At first I wasn't particularly keen on this products smell but it started to grow on me after I used it a couple of times. It has a mix of fruity and musky smells. Not your everyday body butter scent.

It's consistency is really thick and creamy but unlike other body butters it doesn't leave your skin sticky & moist. It soaks into your skin right away and leave you feeling soft and smelly yummy.
It contains exfoilating AHA's, orange water juice and shea butter, peppermint oil and fruit liquid fig which probably explains the mixture of different smells.

I use this product at night before I go to bed so when I wake up in the morning my skin is really really soft! Although the smell doesn't last all day I don't mind that too much as my perfume usually overpowers it anyways.
I would definitely recommend this product if your skin is in need of moisture and a yummy, fresh smell.  Plus, how could you pass up cute packaging like this?  It retails for about €13.00 and can be purchased in Boots. 

Have you tried Butter Yourself Body Butter? If so, what did you think of it? Let me know in the comments below!
You can purchase this product here :)
