Lipstick Review: Girl About Town

MAC Girl About Town lipstick

I have been building up to try more out there pinks. While I was in MAC innocently picking up a new foundation to replace one that had finished (see I do use things up!) I somehow ended up by the lipsticks.

Girl About Town has been on my wishlist for some time now. I decided to bite the bullet and just buy it. It is now my favourite lipstick and it gets alot of queries on nights out because it's so fabulous!

MAC Haul

I let myself make 2 trips to MAC last month. I was well behaved the first day, however my second trip went slightly out of hand! My nearest MAC counter is located in Brown Thomas. I adore the shopping bags from BTs.

Liebster Awards

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Kelly from MonPetitBlog. I have been blogging for a year but nothing serious. This is a hobby and I know I sometimes lack in the post department! I'm delighted that my little has been noticed by someone!

The Liebster Award is passed between bloggers (like a chain letter I guess) with less than 1000 followers, although sometimes I read 200 followers. I don't think it matters though!

Liebster means dearest, beloved from my research. These Liesbter Awards are a great way to find new blogs and promote your favourite blogs.

The questions I was given to answer:
1. Fashion or beauty
Beauty. I'm clueless when it comes to fashion. At least with beauty I know what I can and cannot wear!
2. What is your all time favorite brand?
Benefit. I don't know what it is but I go weak at their counter and need to buy everything.
3. What’s the best thing that happened for you this year?
Got myself a job, made new friends and booked a trip to London. All connected to each other.
4. Who do you spend the most time with?
My friends. They get me!
5. Your favorite type of music?
 I listen to most types of music as you can see from my Music of the Week posts on here.

6. Where have you travelled to?
Turkey, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Scotland, Wales and England. I have been outside of Europe. I want to go Las Vegas, New York, Texas, LA, Australia, South Africa and Cancun. Anyone want to volunteer to fund this!?
7. Texting or phoning?
 Texting and I'm not even the best at that! I prefer talking face to face.

8. If you could pick 1 thing to do tomorrow what would it be?
9. And who would you take with you?
My bestie. She's as mad as I am so we'd have no problems going new places.
10. Favorite accent?
Um, I have never had a favourite accent. Maybe the north one. Tommy Bowe's accent. Yummy!
11. Favorite blog and why?
Yikes! I have so many. 
There are loads more I love though.

Random Facts:
1. I used to play the piano and I want to go back taking lessons again.
2. No one at home knows about my blog.
3. I have a fear of birds. They are frightening!
4. I'm a fan of both The Wanted and One Direction. Apparently you're not allowed to be. Meh!
5. I love candles. Black Cherry is my favourite.
6. I enjoy trying new food and flavours.
7. I'm the girl who cries at movies in the cinema. Can't contain my emotions!
8. I have a weakness for shoes and handbags.
9. My nephew and nieces mean more than the world to me. I will do anything for them.
10. I turned 25 three weeks ago and I still can't believe I'm 25!
11. I want to get a better camera to take a million more photos of my family.

My questions to you:
1. What's on your bucket list?
2. What is your favourite meal?
3. If you could live anywhere, where would that be?
4. Who is your favourite actor/actress?
5. What's your favourite quote?
6. Where in the world would you like to live?

8. To you, what has been the best beauty product released?
9. What inspired you to start blogging?
10. What's you favourite song/band?

If you do a blog post on the Liebster Award, please comment below with the link :)

The rules of the Liebster Award.
If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster award in which you:

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and post a link to their blog on your blog.
2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.)
3. Answer 11 questions about yourself, which will be provided to you by the person who nominated you.
4. Provide 11 random facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 1000 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
6. Create a new list of questions for the blogger to answer.
7. List these rules in your post. (You can copy and paste them from here.)
Once you have written your post, and published it, you then have to:
8. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it!)
I would like to add that you can nominate someone who already has been given this award, as long as they have less than 1000 followers/subscribers. The idea behind this award is to recognize new bloggers and help promote them! The benefit is that you get from doing this is that you get some promotion, too!
