Liebster Award #4 and #5

Hello everyone, hope you're all well! I seem to have unexpectedly taken a week off blogging but I'll be getting back into the swing of things this August!  Last week I was lucky enough to receive two nominations for the Liebster Award from the lovely Paula and Lisa. They both have great blogs and you should definitely check them out! As I'm combining this post I thought I would chose 5 questions from each blogger to answer! (sorry for the excessive number of exclamation marks!)
1.Answer the 10 questions which your lovely nominator has given you!
2.Nominate 10 bloggers who have under 200 followers and link them in your post.
3.Come up with 10 more cool and crazy questions for your nominees to answer!
4.Inform your lovely nominees so they can do their responses!
Here are my answers to Lisa's questions:
Why did you start blogging?
I don't really know to be honest, I was inspired by a lot of other bloggers such as Zoe and Louise and thought, 'hey, that looks fun!' I never really put much thought into my blog at the start but now I really enjoy it.
What do you want to achieve with your blog?
I guess I just want my readers to enjoy what I'm writing. I want people to find reviews helpful and posts interesting. For me, that's what is most important.
What are your favourite shoes?
I'm only fifteen and quite tall so I think I look a bit odd in heels but the shows I've been wearing everywhere lately are a £3 pair of white converse-y plimsoll type shoes from Primark. Classy, I know.
What is definitely a must-have?
As I have quite blemish prone skin with redness a must have for me is concealer. I especially love the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and Benefit Erase Paste.
If you had one plane ticket, where would you go?
I really want to visit Italy! I think I've mentioned this before, but after watching Eat Pray Love I knew it was a place I had to visit.
Here are my answers to Paula's questions:
Favourite makeup brand?
No points for guessing this one, Topshop!
Favourite ice cream?
I'm a chocolate girl myself!
Lipstick or Lipgloss?
Definitely Lipstick! My favourites at the moment are YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in number 12 and Topshop's Jewel!
Music or TV?
Since discovering YouTube I don't watch much TV but I absolutely love Sherlock and I really don't think music could beat that!
Favourite colour to wear on your nails?
At the moment I'm really loving Topshop's Flying Saucer with Urban Outfitters Pick and Mix on the accent nail.

My Nominees:

I thought I would choose four blogs instead of ten because I want to nominate people whose blogs I love reading and deserve the award rather than just picking anyone under the sun! I also went via Bloglovin' followers.

Gina at Lipgloss on my Latte
Kristie at Kristie Blogs Beauty
Laura at Lippy Lau
Hannah Lucy at The Hannah Lucy Diaries
