Liebster Award #2 x6

Long post alert! Don't feel like you have to read this!

Since my first Liebster Award post, I have been nominated for quite a few Liebster awards (six to be exact) which I am very excited about as it's lovely to know these people read and like my blog! The people that nominated me are Sophie from Sophie Ballinger, Natalie Ann from Petal Poppet Blogs, Beth Searle from Sometimes the Stars, Jo from Caledonian Kitty, Miriam from The Funky Path, Tilsie from Beauty and Lifestyle. Thankyou to all those lovely ladies for nominating me, you should definitely check out their blogs after you've read this post as their pretty amazing!

I really wanted to do all of these awards but didn't want to overload you guys with Liebster award posts so I'm combining them into one! However, despite this I'm only going to nominate one set of 11 bloggers and write one set of 11 questions as it would otherwise be an an extremely long post and I simply don't follow that many bloggers! For the same reasons, this will also be my last Liebster Award post as I don't want it to get to boring for you guys so no more nominations please!

> Thank the blogger who nominated you.
> Write 11 random facts about yourself.
> Answer the questions they set you.
> Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to answer your own set of questions.

11 Facts About Me
1) I started learning to fly a plane before even learning to drive a car...priorities!
2) I have a YouTube channel! So you could go check that out if you wanted ;)
3) I was born 19 minutes past midnight on the 19th of May and my little brother was born 19 minutes past 11!
4) I still watch cartoons cos I'm a child!
5) My favourite is Invader Zim!
6) I was raised on 1960s music on my mothers jukebox and have a collection of old Jackie magazines from the 70s.
7) If you give me food, you're instantly my best friend.
8) I hate water. I've barely drank it in years because it makes me feel sick. I live on sugar free fizzy drinks...I'm dieing young, aren't I?
9) I hate talking to people on the phone. It truly terrifies me and I will avoid it whenever possible.
10) I spend 99% of time on YouTube.
11) I don't understand how people can like spicy food. I like to be able to actually taste my food.

Sophie's Questions
1)What are your top 5 books? Urgh, I can't choose! Urm...Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult, Wicked by Gregory Maguire, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire, Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, and Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
2) Pastel or brights? Oooh, can I not say both? It depends really but most of the time, probably pastels.
3) Is there/What's the meaning behind your blog name? Elesaurus is actually something my boyfriend used to call me. Childish, I know, it was a weird joke we had. I used that for this blog because I really don't have the imagination to think of anything else!
4) What is your most used emoji? I don't really use emojis...for one thing I am one of those rare people that don't have an iPhone.
5) What one make up item couldn't you survive without? Mascara! It just finishes off your makeup and I think people look odd with a full face of makeup but no mascara.
6) Your favourite lesson at school is/was? History! I love that everything links together and tells a story so it isn't just a random collection of facts. I also had the most amazing history teacher who would get so animated when he started talking about it and who had stories about everything! I swear he must have been all over the world!
7) Do you prefer your hair up or down? Down! I don't feel like I have the face for having my hair up, I just look weird and chavy. I'm trying to get used to wearing it up though since it's Summer.
8) Are you a list maker? I really am! But I never do anything with them! I will list and plan stuff but never actually abide by the list/plan.
9) What clubs/groups have you ever been a part of? I haven't really been in any clubs. I was in a jazz dance club briefly when I was in primary school but I was way to clumsy and uncoordinated. All it taught me was how to tie my shoelaces!
10) (Your family are safe), you can only save one thing from your burning house. What would it be? Probably all the pictures I have stuck up on my wall which my boyfriend drew for me. Gah, I sound cringey XD
11) Favourite nail varnish colour? Royal blue! I think it's very striking against my pale skin tone.

Natalie Ann's Questions
1) What is your favourite season and why? Autumn. I'm no good with extreme weather so those inbetween seasons are perfect for me. Yep, I'm a wimp. I do love the snow and warm coats of Winter though.
2) If you had three wishes, what would you wish for? I would wish to get in to university, a few million quid both for myself and also to pay off my mothers debts and buy the crumbling mansion she dreams of, and lastly to be eternally skinny no matter what I eat. Cos I'm a vain bitch!
3) Why did you start blogging? I started blogging to be doing something productive during Summer and because I loved reading blogs myself.
4) Which other bloggers are you currently loving? I really love Miranda from Little Gold Pocket Watch. She writes outfit posts with amazing photography and she has great sense of style!
5) What is one interesting fact about yourself? Ooh, I don't really think of myself as a very interesting person. Especially after this post, I don't think there's anything more to say about me!
6) If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? There's no one place really. I'd just love to travel everywhere!
7) What is the one thing that you cannot live without? My phone. It's pretty worrying how attached people get to them, isn't it? >.<
8) What is your favourite movie? Breakfast at Tiffanys
9) What is your favourite song? That changes constantly.
10) Describe yourself in one word. Childish
11) What is your favourite childhood memory? I used to dance in the fireplace...I was a weird kid.

1) What is your favourite pick-me-up album? The Family Jewels by Marina and the Diamonds because I know the name to every single song.
2) What is a product that you recommend to everyone? MUA eyeshadows. They're so pigmented.
3) If money was no object, what would you buy? Christian Louboutins. 
4) What is your go to outfit? Just any of my dresses because you can just throw on a dress and it's your whole outfit without having to think about matching things up. I'm lazy!
5) What is one thing you would love to do before you die? I'm not sure. I don't really have a lot of ambitions or know where I want to be. I'm in that inbetween stage where you're not a school-kid and not really an adult. Feeling pretty lost, not gunna lie XD
6) Have you ever been in love? I think so.
7) Why did you start blogging? See previous answer :)
8) What would you be doing if you weren't doing what you're doing now (work/school-wise)? Well I'm not really doing anything right now as it's the Summer holidays.

9) What is your favourite movie? See previous answer :)
10) What do you do to treat yourself? Just eat anything unhealthy...and I treat myself on a daily basis.
11)  What is your favourite band, that no-one has ever heard of? I don't really know any that no-one has heard of at all. All the less popular ones I like seem to be getting more successful which is great for them!

1)What country are you from? England
2) Costa Coffee, Starbucks or Cafe Nero? Starbucks.

7) Do you collect anything?, if, what and why? I collect crystals which I keep on my windowsill because my grandma has a massive display cabinet full of them which always fascinated me as a little kid.
8) Do you prefer shopping online or going out shopping? I love window shopping online but for actual shopping I prefer to be able to try things on and actually hold my purchases.
9) Worst customer service experience? Honestly, I can't remember >.<
10) What was the last book you read or are currently reading? I'm currently reading War of the Worlds
11) What was the last product you reviewed? I recently wrote a group review of Primark makeup but my most recent in depth review of an individual product was of Seventeen Phwoarr Paint.

1) What's your biggest fear? Time. I'm terrified of suddenly being old and decrepit and feeling the approach of death. Quarter life crisis! Whoop!
2) One life-changing makeup tip? If you're invited to a last minute night out and you don't have time to do anything fancy with your makeup, bright lipstick makes it look like you've put in so much effort than you have.
3) What's your most unhealthy habit? Binge eating junk
4) How many lipsticks do you own? Only about five at the moment. I've only recently become a lipstick person.

7) Most recent book you read and would you recommend it? Well I'm currently re-reading War of the Worlds and yes, of course I'd recommend it! It's a classic!

10) What's one thing you want to achieve in the nearer future? I hope to get into university. I'll be finding out in August so fingers crossed!
11) What's your favourite part about your makeup or skincare routine? When it's done? Let's face it, we waste a lot of time on our makeup, don't we girls?

  7. Interesting fact #1! I also still love cartoons. It's such a nice destressor. Spicy food for me makes the meal more interesting, but I can't eat too much because I have a very acidic stomach and I'll get sick if I indulge.

    History was one of my least favorite class. Gosh, I barely passed them. I only ever studied(revised) so hard ONCE because I didn't want to fail a class on my first year at uni haha :)

    I treat myself on a daily basis, too... Ugh!

    Maybe you should try NARS Sheer Glow Foundation if you can save up for it :)

    I'm curious how long it takes you to do your makeup :)
