The Blue Sky Tag - 11 Questions Challenge

Hey everyone,

I was so surprised and honoured to be tagged into the above challenge by the amazing highstreet_beauty.  Not only because I absolutely adore everything about her blogs and Instagram feed but also because it's the first time I've ever been tagged in a "blogger tag" before.  So the challenge is to answer the 11 questions that she asked, I then tag 11 bloggers and set 11 new questions for them to answer.  I will pop a link here if you would like to take a look at her answers and below you'll find my answers:

Q. Why did you start writing a blog?

A. I wanted to do something that would make my little boys proud of me.  I've always tried to teach them that you can do anything you want to and never be afraid to just give something a go.  If it doesn't work out then at least you can say you've tried...if it does work out then that's just fantastic.

My inspiration for everything I do
Q. Which is your favourite season?

A. I love Summer and Winter equally and couldn't decide between the two.  I can take or leave Spring and Autumn as I never know what to wear.  It's got to be super hot or freezing cold!

Q. How would you describe your style?

A. I wear the clothes I think suit me and my personality.  I tend not to follow trends religiously and wouldn't buy something just because it was "in" if it didn't look right or I didn't like it.  I'm a tomboy and always have been so days are always jeans and trainers but I love to glam it up if I'm going out!

Q. What is your favourite treat to eat?

A. Cadbury's Crème Eggs...I'm obsessed!

Q. Tell us something you do to relax?

A. I watch YouTube videos.  There's nothing nicer than sitting down when the kids have gone to bed, putting my headphones on and watching make up tutorials.  I can just forget all about grown-up worries.

Q. Do you have any pets?

A. Not any more.  I had a rabbit called Billabong but sadly he's no longer with us. Me and the boys would love a sausage dog though (we just need to convince Mr Shopaholic)! 

Q. Lipstick or lipgloss?

A. I'm definitely more of a lipstick girl now which really surprises me.  I was a slave to lipglosses for such a long time but now there are so many different formulations of lipsticks available and they last longer than gloss.. and let's face it...if I'm going to spend hours getting ready, I want that lip to last!

Q. Is there a makeup or skincare brand that you have never tried but would love to?

A. Charlotte Tilbury.  I know it's high-end but there is just something so magical about the brand that fascinates me.

Q. What makes you laugh?

A. If I'm with the people I love the most I laugh all the time, and watching Ant and Dec, and Stephen Mulhern...actually quite a lot. 

Q. What was the last movie or TV series you loved?

A. I've been obsessed with Friends since it first started and I still watch it now.  The last movie I watched was The Secret Life of Pets.... I love that film.

Q. What would you like to achieve in 2017?

A. For my family to be happy, healthy and to carry on creating amazing memories we can cherish forever.
