Liebster Award!

Hey everyone,

We are so excited to be nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Gemma who's blog Touch of Belle is really brilliant. Check out her blog now

This award is given out to new bloggers who deserve recognition for their fantastic blog posts.

So here is how it works:

      ·         Answer the questions set by the blogger who nominated you
·         Nominate 11 other bloggers for the award

·         Set 11 questions for your own nominees to answer

·         And just let the other 11 people that you have nominated them and send them a link to your post.
So here are the questions Gemma has asked us:
1. How old are you?
Maria- I am 23 and will be turning 24 in March. I am a proud Pisces
Pini- I've just turned 21. That is it for me I don't plan on getting any older.
2. How would you describe your style?
Maria- I love fashion and am quite girly at heart. I love midi skirts, bright colours, huge heels (the bigger the better) and statement jewellery.
Pini- I have more of a individual and laid back style. I prefer darker colours with bright and unique accessories.
3. What's your favourite type of post to write?
Maria- We are really new at this but we have loved writing posts so far. I love writing about beauty products as when it comes to other blogs I love reading reviews from real people before I make a purchase.
Pini- I'm with Maria on this one, I also love everything fashion related so I will definitely be blogging more about fashion in the future.
4. What is your winter must have?
Maria- Scarfs! I am a bit obsessed with scarfs, I must have millions in my wardrobe and I can't wait for the temperature to drop a bit so I can go shopping to extend my collection further.
Pini- Definitely hats! The right hat can definitely completely transform an outfit. There especially great for bad hair days when your hair is lifeless and flat and a hat can save it from flab to fab within seconds.
5. Do you have any tips for new bloggers?
We would say it is all about interacting with people. Don't be afraid to out yourself out  there, we have had some great feedback and everyone has been so sweet.
6. How long have you been blogging for?
Maria- About 2 weeks
Pini- Um I would say 3 weeks.
Maria- Alright know it all, respect your elders haha.
7. What are your "go to" hair styles?
Maria- This season is all about the "done but un-done" look. I work within the hair industry and have been on some amazing photo shoots where I have picked up some great hair tips. The best tip I have ever got is that when you hair is feeling a little flat, spray in some dry shampoo (if you are brunette use a brown colour) but don't rub it in. The spray acts as an amazing volume product, a lot better than any mousses or hairsprays.
Pini- I hate my ears so unless i'm having a lazy day at home and my hairs up in a messy bun, you will never find me with my hair up. I much prefer my hair to be a little bit messy and look 'untouched' when really I've spent ages doing it, so my go-to is definitely a toulouse messy look.  
8. Best beauty tip or general tips?
Maria- Forget about spending all of your money on hair masks, use a good quality conditioner at the ends of your hair (not on the roots) and leave it in over night. Wash it out first thing in the morning and your hair will feel incredibly soft!
Pini- Finding a good illuminator is key for me. It can completely transform your face from dull looking to bright and beautiful, with a dash of cream blusher  on top to bring your cheeks to life. Nars illuminator is my ultimate favourite.
9. What's the best thing about blogging?
We both really love writing so it is a great hobby to put down our thoughts on things we are interested in. It is also a great way to get some top tips and ideas from other bloggers about products to buy or places to go.
10. Do your family/friends know you blog? If yes are they supportive?
 Absolutely, our friends and family are always supportive of whatever we do.
11. Where do you see your blog in the future?
We just want people to enjoy what we do. We are taking it a step at a time and not thinking about the future right now.
We are nominating these brilliant bloggers:
Our questions:
1. Why did you set up your blog?
