BlogLoveTherapy Blog Hop

I'm back again with a quick little post about another blog hop site. I am actually obsessed with this idea now as I've found so many interesting new blogs through them.
Today I joined BlogLoveTherapy 

I encourage all you new beauty bloggers to join as this is such a great way to get your blog out there for people to see. Also just if you want you blog noticed this is fantastic.

I'll hopefully be seeing all your blogs on there too!

First Time Award Nominee!!!

I think I squealed with excitement when I read a comment posted from Clare at 'A Bit Of This And That' saying she had nominated me for a Liebster Award! This is my first ever blog award nomination and couldn't be more surprised. I thought I was just a little blog mainly talking to myself ha.

So here are the rules:-
1. Each person must write 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you and make 11 new questions for the people you tag.
3. Choose the people and link them in this post.
4. Go to their page and notify them.
5. No tag backs.

My 11 Random Facts

1. I have 2 sisters, both older so yes I am the baby!
2. I have a phobia of people in costume suits. The kind where they can see you but you can't see them (think Mickey Mouse!)
3. I am known for remembering song lyrics. My family say when it comes to song lyrics my head is like a sponge.
4. I love rearranging my room. I like to move my room around at least twice a month.
5. I work for Duty Free at Gatwick Airport.
6. I live on a budget so my favourite place to shop is Primark and I'm not ashamed to say so.
7. I'm addicted to MAC makeup.
8. I have a rather large collection of perfumes. That's what you get for working at Duty Free.
9. I love going to concerts. Last year I saw Usher and Take That and this year I went to T4 On The Beach.
10. My favourite T.V programs are 'The Big Bang Theory', 'How I Met Your Mother' and 'One Tree Hill'.
11. My name is Adele and I'm in love with my iPhone 4s and Instagram.

Clare's Questions

1. Drugstore or High End makeup?
This is a toughy. I love both. I use a drugstore foundation but a high end blusher and eyeliner etc. So I would have to say its 50/50!

2. Clothes Or Shoes?
Definitely clothes.

3. Where is your favourite place to shop?
Ha. This was 1 of my random facts. I'd have to say Primark for the value but if I want to splash out I'd say New Look or H&M.

4. What Is your favourite band?
  I always find music questions hard to answer. I don't particularly have a favourite band but my favourite artist is a mix of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj & Jay-Z.

5. What would be your best make up tip?
Aways use a face/eye primer. People always believe it's a waste of time but It really isn't.

6. Twitter or Facebook?
Facebook for socializing with school friends/family. Twitter for talking to other beauty bloggers etc.

7. What has been your most expensive purchase? Are you glad you bought it?
My Ted Baker purse. It was about £55. Yes I am glad I bought it because a year and a half after buying it I still use it and haven't swapped it once for another.

8. What would be your ideal holiday destination?
Most definitely anywhere in America. I love that country and have been to a few states but so far missed out on all the big exciting ones such as New York & L.A.

9. Who is your favourite person to watch on Youtube?
My favourite Youtuber would have to be Zoe at Zoella. Shes so down to earth and I just love her videos.

10. Do you have any pets?
Not at the moment. We did have 3 cats but sadly they have all passed away.

11. Do you have any tattoos? If you don't would you like one?
Yes I have 1 tattoo. I have 4 stars on my wrist. Each star represents me and my 3 best friends.

My Questions

1. What is you favourite nail polish brand and colour?
2. What is your most favourite thing about blogging?
3. Shoes or bags?
4. Favourite piece of clothing?
5. High Street Prices Vs. Boutique Prices... Your opinion?
6. Favourite High Street makeup brand?
7. Favourite High end make up brand?
8. Jeans or Jeggings?
9. Classic question, stuck on a desert island and only allowed 1 item of makeup what is it?
10. Winter or Summer?
11. Number 1 makeup rule you obey by?

So onto the tagging...

New Shop = New Brands!!

My life has been very hectic lately. As I've mentioned before I work at Gatwick for Duty Free and we've just opened up a brand new shop. I did a lot of overtime (I need the money for my holiday to Tenerife in September!!) so I managed to get a few snaps of some counters including new brands such as Laura Mercier and O.P.I. Enjoy...

Our Brand New Tasting Bar.
First ever Laura Mercier counter at an Airport.
Sparkling new Dior counter.
O.P.I Stand!!
Our amazing Chanel Espace Boutique.
GHD Stand.

These are just a few snaps I managed to get throughout the couple of days I worked 12-14 hour shifts to get the shop ready. Today was my first day back and boy is it different from our old shop. So much busier and hectic!! Hope you enjoy and if your ever flying through Gatwick look out for me!!

4 Top Items on my Wishlist...

For today's post I thought I'd show you my top 4 items on my wishlist for July 2012.

bareMinerals Get Started Kit RRP £49.00
I work in Duty Free at Gatwick and at the moment we are having a new shop built which means were getting new brands, one being bareMinerals. We had some training on it and I fell in love with this brand. I had a makeover done and I've never seen my skin look so good...total mineral convert.

New Look American Flag Print T-Shirt RRP £9.99
Cream (Cream) American Flag Print T-Shirt | 255893113 | New Look
The American flag is the trend at the moment, it's absolutely everywhere on every piece of clothing. This top is from New Look and at the budget price of £9.99. I love cheap clothes when I'm on a budget.

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pencil RRP £9.50
I've wanted these since I saw Zoe (Zoella) talk about them on her youtube. I've been into boots and tested them out on my hands just haven't had the moolah to purchase any yet.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Star Wonder' RRP £21.50
I have had my eye on this ever since this collection came out. It gives me the perfect pink blush on my cheeks and adds the slight shimmer to highlight. The perfect 2 in 1 product. Love love love.
