LIEBSTER AWARD: Samantha Natalie


Hello everyone, so I checked my blog yesterday evening and to my surprise I found that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Aoife Marie. The award is basically for lesser known blogs to get noticed, so I feel really privileged that I have been nominated so thank you! Nominees, your questions are at the bottom of the page! 





These are the rules for the award: 


The Rules:
  1. You must link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by the nominee before you.
  3. You must list 11 random/fun facts about yourself.
  4. You must pick 11 nominees with under 200 (or 2000 if you want to go with that) followers to answer your questions
  5. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you.
  6. You must let the people you nominate know they have been nominated.
So here are my questions set by Aoife: 

1.  What inspires you to blog? : The reason that I am inspired to blog is basically that beauty and fashion are my main interests, to put it bluntly. But going into detail with it, I have never really been sure what career I want to pursue in life, but beauty and fashion are things that have stayed a constant interest throughout the whole of my life, sure like every one I have had style crisises through my early teens, but even then fashion has been one of my loves. 
2.  What is the meaning behind you blog name? Unfortunately this probably is the most unexciting answer ever but my blog name is my first name Samantha, and my middle name Natalie. I'm sorry for such a boring answer! 
3.  If you had to live with only one beauty/makeup product for the rest of you life what would it be and why? Hmm this is quite a tricky one but if i had to I would probably pick a good foundation like my trusty Body Shop ones, as I think you can get away with putting just a tiny bit of foundation on to even out your complexion and not bother with anything else! 
4.  What country would you like to visit and why? Okay, this is a weird one but I would absolutely love to visit the Galapagos Islands, I know that sounds crazy but since I found out about it, with the huge turtles, I've always wanted to go there! 
5.  What Bloggers do you look up to? Oo well initially before blogging I watched bloggers on youtube and I started with Zoella, but moved on to the blogs of Beautycrush, wh0se style I absolutely love , and Fleur de Force, as I just love her personality. But my favourite at the moment has to be Fashion Rocks My Socks, as I think her sense of style is quite similar to mine. 
6.  Describe your sense of style? I'd say I have quite a classic sense of style, as I love my basic pieces like big plain or stripy t-shirts tucked in to a pair of skinny jeans. But I love adding quite 'indie', pieces along with it. 
7.  What are your favourite clothing shops? My favourite clothing shops at the moment have to be Zara, ASOS, Urban Outfitters, and Schuh. 
8.  What is your dream job? As I said before, I have no clue what I want to do when I am older but I would say my dream job would be a professional make up artist. 
9.  What is your favourite book and why? My favourite book would be The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown, it is a long read but I found it so intense and exciting, I literally couldn't put it down. I'm a big fan of the author as well. 
10.  If you won €1,ooo what would you spend it on? I'll change this to pounds for me haha, but if I won £1000, I would definitely go shopping with my friends, even though really I should be saving for driving oops!
11.  Have you ever been to Ireland? No unfortunately, I have never been to Ireland, but I have always wanted to go to see the Giant's Causeway.
11 Facts about me! 
  1. I am 16 years of age.
