Good Morning!
This is going to be a bit different for me, I was fortunate enough to have two lovely bloggers nominate me for the Liebster Award... Corrie and Livia ,Thank you so much ladies!

My Questions from Livia.
1. How often do you blog? Have you set any specific days?
I do not have a schedule, although I think/talk a lot about starting to schedule my material.
2. When you have to buy a new makeup product do you search online for reviews or you just trust your own instinct?
I have actually always just made impulse purchases, and it has worked for me. I have been paying more attention to reviews the older I get, and pay attention to what I am putting on my skin...
3. In which store you prefer to shop for makeup?
ULTA, Beauty Bar (online), or Nordstroms
4. Which is your favorite mascara?
Maybeline- Great lash. Yes, the pink and green tube is the BEST mascara of all time.
5. Which is your favorite shade of lipstick?
Light Pink
6. When did you first start doing makeup?
I was actually not allowed to wear any facial makeup,other than mascara until I was around 15-16, my mom taught me the appreciation of natural beauty and showcasing on that. So, to answer the question, like 2 years, and I do not wear powder or foundation, still.
7. Which is your favorite makeup brand?
Toss up between Chanel, or Bobbi Brown.
8. If you could choose to live somewhere, where would it be?
New York or Seattle.

Just past my One year mark.
10. What camera do you use to take pictures for your blog?
Lol, my Iphone or our Nikon... nothing fancy. Yes, I do know it is essential to invest in a quality camera.
11. Whats is the thing you like the most about blogging?
At first, it was my own little space, my own little world, all for me- Now, I have met so many new friends and continue, how could I stop :)

Here are my questions from Corrie:
1.What was the first brand of make-up you really started to love?
Chanel was my first purchase, make-up wise.

2. What inspired you to start your blog?
I had followed fashion and lifestyle blogs for quite some time (3-4 years), I had just started a new job and a (now close) co-worker encouraged me to go for it when I mentioned that I was interested in starting one.
3.Lipstick or Lip gloss?
4. If you could go anywhere, where would it be and why?
I would love to go to Mexico City, my husband grew up there and I would love to be able to experience the busy city-life there and see where my husband grew up.

5. What are your 3 "cant live without" products?
LOccitane- Almond Shower Oil
Aveda- Blue Malva Conditioner
Kevyn Aucoin- Precision eyebrow pencil -brunette
6.What was your first piece of high end make-up?
Again, my Chanel blush and bronzer
7. Date night or Day out together?
Both, I spend as much time with my hubby and daughter as possible. We both work full-time, so our weekends together are all day and night.

8. What is the worst beauty product you have ever bought?
Any "BB cream". Seriously, since I do not wear powder or foundation I thought it would be beneficial... all that happened was, my face broke out and I was greasier than a hamburger grill.

9. Beauty, Fashion or Lifestyle? What's your favorite to blog about?I am more of a lifestyle-esque blog maybe with fashion and beauty mixed in. If I had more time in the day, I would totes be more fashion/beauty based. 
10. Flats or Heels?
I am 5'10, so flats. I will rock the hell out of some heels, when the mood strikes.

11. How often do you hit the shops for new make-up?
Well, I am less than 2 minutes from an Ulta, so I try hard to refrain daily lol, so maybe once every two weeks...
