Leibster Award

The lovely Susannah from recently nominated me for a Leibster Award.  The Leibster Award is basically a tag given to bloggers with less than 200 followers with some questions to answer.

I've already posted a Leibster Award once before which you can read here,  but I thought it would be fun to answer Susannah's questions and who knows you might learn something about me you didn't know before :)

What's a blog that inspires you?
This one was a hard one to pick as there are a lot of fantastic blogs that inspire me.  I thought I'd pick a local Australian girl Sarah who blogs over at More Than Adored. Sarah inspires me because she writes from a really genuine and honest place which comes from having a real passion for what she writes about.  She also has a beautiful blog design so what are you waiting for... go check it out :p 
If money and time were no object, what would you like to do with your blog?
I'd love to hire a professional blog designer to completely overhaul the look of the blog and with all the time in the world I would swatch, review and write to my heart's content.
What's your favourite TV show or movie?
My favourite movie is The Holiday.  Love every single moment of this movie.  Absolutely beautiful and I try to watch it every Christmas.

What do you like to do when you're not blogging?
I love shopping, travelling and hanging out with friends and if it's summer I love the beach!

What's your job or dream job (other than blogging)?
My job right now is a Personal Assistant which most of the time I love doing.  I'm also a trained makeup artist but haven't practiced my trade professionally for a few years now.  My dream job would probably be to throw myself back into Makeup Artistry.  Get my kit back up and running and solely do weddings and special occasion makeup

What's your favourite, holy grail beauty product?
This is so hard.  I love too many products how can I just pick one?  Mascara is the one thing I never leave the house without and my favourite mascara is Maybelline Full n Soft Mascara - I've been using it for years and am yet to find anything that betters it.

On your own blog, what's your favourite blog post?
My favourite blog post is the one where I posted my last giveaway for my birthday.  I asked people to comment and tell me about their favourite birthday and I found everybody's responses really fascinating.  The giveaway has closed but the comments are worth a read :)

What's your favourite recipe (or food if you're not into cooking)?
My favourite recipe is for my Chocolate Chip Cookies.  They're so easy to make, taste so delicious and I'm automatically everybody's best friend when I make them.

Do you have any pets?
I have a kitten called Lucy who drives me up the wall.  We've had her for about 6 months now and while I love her dearly, her 4am banging (yes banging) on the door, sprinting from one end of the house to the other and obsession with our floor rug leaves me somewhat exasperated.  She also has a strange obsession with sitting as close to my face as she can.  Anyone know a cat whisperer?

Lucy and I - so comfy... not

What are your social media links?
Instagram @kaytlynz
Twitter @imminent_beauty

What advice do you have for new bloggers?
Write about something that you're passionate about and never write for perks!  Also make spell check your best friend.

Thanks Susannah for tagging me in this, it's been fun answering the questions.  I won't tag anyone specifically but if you'd like to answer these questions yourself on your blog please do and link back to it in the comments below.

  1. Hahahahaha oh Lucy...

  2. Hi Kayte. I really enjoyed reading all of your answers. That pic of you and Lucky is absolutely priceless. She sounds like such a character. I have been meaning to try Maybelline Full and Soft for ages, I'm definitely going to try it now. I think you can get it at my local Woolworths. Thanks for a great post!

  3. Aww thank you for the mention :D seriously made my day!


Feel free to comment or ask any questions. I would love to hear from you x
