Liebster Award

Due to the fact of being nominated so many times I've decided to do the first 3 posts. I hope you ladies don't mind - I love reading all your blogs & think your posts are amazing!

Liebster award is an award to help promote new bloggers.
The word Liebster is German for dearest, lovely, and valued.

Stephanie's questions:

1.  What made you start blogging?
I've been following beauty bloggers & Youtubers for around a year or so now, and one day I thought, I'd love to join in. So on December 13th 2013 I sat down & 'Vanity Fairest' was made :)
2.  How do you define beauty?
Beauty comes from within - cliché I know but this is so true! Beauty comes in all different shapes, sizes & colours. To me an amazing personality & sense of humour is much more beautiful than someone's appearance.
3.  What in life gives you the satisfaction of happiness?
Love - Now you're all definitely going to think I'm a cringe bag! I'm most happiest when I'm with my family, boyfriend, besties & cat (crazy cat lady alert!) 
4.  What are your favourite cosmetic brands?
Skincare always has & always will be the amazing Elemis. With make up I'm constantly trying new brands, although I am a bit of a Mac junkie.
5.  What kind of post do you like to read most?
Everyone's blog is totally different which is what I love. I enjoy 'getting to know' the person who's blog I'm reading as I like to relate to them in some way & put a face to a name.
6.   What is your fashion style?
I like anything girly & pretty, I literally live in anything cream/nude/white/pink.

7.  What's your favourite OPI nail polish?
I don't actually own any OPI nail polishes (I know - some of you are probably completely baffled as to why) The reason being I much prefer China Glaze. The range of colours are beautiful, the durability is even better & they're cheaper too!
8.  Who is your favourite Youtuber?
Top 3 - Jaclyn Hill, Tanya Burr & Lauren Curtis.
9.  What is your dream job/career?
I love the job I'm in - the beauty industry. Beauty is my passion & I'm so lucky to be doing something I love everyday. I couldn't imagine doing anything else!  
10.  What is your beauty holy grail products?
I've narrowed this down to 2 products, one being skincare & the other make up. My holy grail skincare product is my Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (I rave about this product here) You will never & I mean never, catch me going to bed without cleansing my face! No matter how tired/lazy/drunk I am. And for make up its got to be my Maybelline Colossal Lashes mascara (I rave about this product here too)
11.  What is your goal for 2014?
The main thing I'd like to do this year is focus on my blog & possibly even meet some of you?!

Emilys questions:

1. What was your reason to start blogging?
I have a huuuge passion for beauty & I wanted to share my thoughts & experiences with you all.
2. What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?
My favourite Winter purchases this year have to be either my black fur cape or my pale pink Topshop coat.
3. Who is your biggest inspiration?
My parents.
4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Hopefully in a beautiful quaint cottage in the country, married with 2 children or 5 cats ha! (Cats sound much more appealing)
5. What is one product you can't live without?
Mascara all day! It opens up your eyes so much & can transform a whole make up look.
6. What are you most passionate about?
Beauty durrr!
7. If you were stranded on a desert island, name 3 people you would choose to be with you (fictional or not)?
My Dad because he would be able to look after me & probably catch a fish with his bare hands haha (Can you tell he does everything for me already?!)

My two best friends Lydia & Sophie as we've been there for each other literally through thick & thin. I couldn't imagine being stranded anywhere without these girlies, as the very few times I have been stuck somewhere has been with Lyds & Soph anyhoo!

I'm going to go for a fictional character for the last person - Christian Grey! We all need a bit of eye candy & as he's so rich he would probably get a plane to save us. ;)
8. Who is your celeb crush?
Matt Bomer! *drools* If you don't know who he is, you need to know who he is! He's has a husband though so that rules out all my chances with a dish like him.
9. Nail Varnish or Lipstick?
Gotta be me lippies.
10. Favourite band/artist? (I love knowing this from people!)
I like a bit of everything! Especially things from the 80s & noughties!
11. What was your biggest new years resolution?
I didn't really set myself any major New Year resolutions, I'm going to make my blog my main priority though & possibly start a YouTube Chanel. (Thoughts on this?)
Alessandra's questions:

1. What is your favourite memory?
Growing up in the little village where I used to live, we had a beautiful house in the countryside & for miles around we were surround by fields with horses. I had the best upbringing & memories there.
2. Who is your biggest inspiration?
My mum & pops.
3. What inspired you to start a blog?
I wanted to express my love for all things beauty & meet others who felt the same.
4. If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
World hunger. The thought of anyone starving makes me want to cry :'(
5. What is your favourite thing to do when you're bored?
I'm usually so busy I never really get the chance to be bored, I'd probably browse the web?
6. Who is your "celebrity crush"?
Matt Bomer!!!!
7. Who is your favourite musician?
Meh I don't really have one to be honest.
8. Which do you prefer: Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat or YouTube?
YouTube! Followed by Twitter, I don't have/like Facebook & I've never used Snapchat.
9. TV or Music?
TV I love reality shows & catching up on my fave box sets. I've watched Prison Break 3 times - oh that reminds me, Wentworth Miller is another celeb crush of mine too. He has a husband as well though..
10. What is your dream career?
I've wanted to be in the beauty industry for as long as I can remember, so I'm already in my dream job.
11. What is your New Year's Resolution?
I'm going to focus on my blog - this is my main priority & my favourite hobby.
