Liebster Award!

So yesterday the very sweet Lucy from LucyLoves nominated me for a Liebster Award, a recognition of up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  Before I get into the questions and rules, I just wanted to say thank you to Lucy and I'd definitely recommend you check out her blog here.

The Rules
1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers to tag with less than 200 followers
5. These lucky bloggers must be told
6. There are no tags backs

11 Things About Me
1. I have 3 cats at home, I think it's too many but I love them all!
2. I very rarely drink, but when I do I like a good bourbon.
3. I don't have a middle name, my mam thought they were old fashioned.
4. I grew up in Newcastle.
5. When I'm angry (or drunk) my geordie accent can return in full force.
6. Jim never fixed it for me to become a mermaid like I wanted, damn it!
7. I love Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and many more works of genius since.
8. I watch far too much TV and way too many films.
9. I caved and created a Facebook account a couple of years ago but I've never used it.
10. I reread some of my favourite books at least once a year.
11. I'm addicted to peach iced tea.

Questions from LucyLoves

1. If you have any, when did you buy your first high-end product and what was it?
My first high end product was a Bobbi Brown lip gloss many moons ago when I was about 15.  My mum took me for a makeover at the department store she worked at, and so my obsession with makeup began.
2. If you had to take two beauty products to a desert island, what would they be?
An SPF/tinted moisturiser and eyeliner.
3. What is your most favourite place to shop?
Selfridges in Manchester, it has everything a girl could need,
4. What is your favourite season? Why?
Autumn, because there are still lovely bright sunny days but it's much more comfortable and i can wear my scarves again!
5. What was your most used nail varnish in August?
Mint Candy Apple by Essie.
6. What one superpower would you like to have if you could?
I'd like to be super intelligent, can't imagine there's anything you couldn't do, or you'd just go nuts.
7. If you could buy one beauty product right now, regardless of price, what would it be?
A Clarisonic.  I've wanted to try one for a while but just can't justify spending that much money on one.
8. Would you rather... Get all of your clothes bought for you for the rest of your life (anything you want) but never be able to wear makeup again... or get makeup bought for you for the rest of your life, but have to wear very basic unflattering clothes?
Oooh a hard one.  I think I'd have to get the makeup bought for me, because at least my face would look nice :-)
9. What is the one type of food you couldn't live without?
At the moment it's Japanese style.  Love Wagamama and their Katsu curry.
10. Would you move to anywhere else in the world if you could?
Without a shadow of a doubt!  I'd love to live in New Zealand or Canada.
11. What is your most listened to song of all time?
Probably This Old Heart of Mine by the Isley Brothers.  It's one of my Mam's favourite songs, I've heard it thousands of times and it always brings back good memories.

Questions for my nominees
1. What is your favourite high end and high street brand and why?
2. What is your favourite high end and high street product and why?
