Liebster Award

Well hello, welcome and of course come in and take a seat as you're here to witness Charlotte's Picks receive its first award by the blogger community. First off I'd like to say a tremendous thank you to my nominee which was Nique and Neena as I wouldn't be writing this post today if it wasn't for them. You can probably tell already that I'm treating this award like I've just won a grammy except the scale is completely different! When I got nominated for this award I was a bit starstruck as to why me? and have I performed a miracle? but, I've done some research and realized that it's to do with discovering new blogs and welcoming them to the blogger community.
When you're nominated for this award you get set a list of eleven questions which you then have to answer, here are those questions:

1. What makes you want to blog?
If you visit my Writer Behind the Blog page you'll know the reasons for my beginning my blog. In general I love blogging I find that it takes up a big chunk of my life, it lets me voice my opinions on things; I find it really enjoyable.
2. How old is your blog?
11 months old, I set it up in December however I only started posting in February.
3. How do you see your blog 5 years from now?
Hopefully I'll still be blogging and having an ever growing passion to continue. I'd like to do more collaborations with bloggers and companies whilst adapting and making my writing style more amusing yet informative. 
4. What is your favourite beauty product?
Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. I love a good foundation but I'd have to go with my Rimmel-Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Liner, I've been really getting into doing eyeliner recently and using this product has made it ever so easy. I love it!
5. What is best shopping store?
Oooh this is a tough one. If we're talking online I'd have to say Boohoo however on the high street I'd say New Look as I'm 90% sure half my wardrobe is full of their clothes put together.
6. Whats your favourite thing to do when your upset?
Always listen to music and talk to the people I love most.
7. If you could go back in time and give your younger self advice. What would it be and why?
Being 16 I think to myself that I'm quite young but I'd have to say wash your face every day with water or a cleanser and also if you're going GCSEs remember to always revise as it'll benefit you massively as you wont stress as much! 
8. What did you do for your last birthday?
I have to admit I'm a very boring person when it comes to birthdays because I just like to stay at home or occasionally go out for a meal. Last birthday I remember going out for a meal with my family at Harvester then returning home to be greeted by my boyfriend to spend the rest of the evening with him.
9. Share your hair care secret?
Schwarzkopf-Gliss Hair Repair Liquid without a doubt.
10. Which perfume/cologne is your secret weapon?
My signature perfume which I wear on special occasions has to be my Avon Pretty Fabulous. It's gorgeous! 
11. Tell us something nobody knows about you?
This is a strange one but I love eating gravy granules by itself I think they're extremely tasty, better than gravy itself. 

Now that I've answered those I would like to nominate:

Sprinkless Of Beauty,
Chescka May,
ElaBella World,
and Iridescent Places to answer these eleven questions below which I've thought of, to answer yourselves, then tag five other bloggers in your post and also tell them on their blog that you've nominated them. That was a mouthful to say! 

1. If you had to choose one make-up item which you had to live off for the rest of your life what would it be?

2. Favourite brand of shoe?
3. Would you rather wear jeans or a skirt all day all year?
4. Fruit or chocolate?
5. What made you want to start a blog?
6. How long does it take you to do your make-up today?
7. What's your favourite make-up brush you use?
8. Are you an outside or inside type of person?
9. Favourite fashion accessory?
10. Would you rather use an eyebrow pencil for a lip liner or a lip liner for an eyebrow pencil?
11. What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened to you?

I look forward to reading your answers to these. 
Thanks for reading.
