The Liebster Award.

Hey everyone!
The lovely Emma, over at TansyPansy has nominated Tartan Fairytales for the Liebster Award, which is a sort of tag that is going around for bloggers with under 200 followers, to help out other bloggers in the same boat! So thanks so much Emma for the nomination! We have tagged 11 bloggers - apologies if you have already done the tag! 
Ok, so in the tag you are asked 11 questions, have to ask 11 amd nominate 11 bloggers!
These are the ones Emma asked...

What is your favourite fashion season? Autumn/Winter? Spring/Summer?
L: For me, it's definitely winter. I love coats, scarfs and loadsa layers!
G: Summer, summer, summer! I love being able to just throw on a light jacket or a t-shirt and just go!

How long does it take you to do your makeup on a day-to-day basis?

L: It takes me about 10 to 15 minutes!
G: Around 10 minutes if I'm just doing the basics. However if I go all out with eyeshadow about 30! Then if I add contouring that, about 50 minutes!

Top skin care product?

L: Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser! I'm obsessed!
G: All the Simple products, especially the moisturiser.

Is there a novel/film/song that's changed your life or made you think differently?

L: The Good Stuff by Kenny Chesney. Listen to it - it explains it all.
G: Aw.. This question. There are so such I could list. Especially songs. However I have to say Hurt- Johnny Cash. I know this song is originally by Nine Inch Nails but if you listen to the two, you can just hear all the emotion from Cash. Even the frontman Nine Inch Nails said how amazing the cover is. The video just adds to it all. Ugh, favourite.

What's your favourite high street shop?

L: Zara or H&M. I'm in love with both, and find myself always lusting after at least one thing from each store.
G: Zara or Topshop. Always on top form!

What item of clothing do you find yourself wearing the most?

L: Right now, it's my black coat with leather panels on the collar and shoulders from H&M which I got at the start of December and have worn it everyday since I got it!
G: Mmm, this is a tough one for me as I don't normally wear the same thing regularly. I do have two Will Smith T-Shirts from Topman that I tend to wear a lot.

If you had enough money to spend a day doing anything you wanted, what would you most want to do?

L: I'd want to see how many different places I could see and obviously go shopping in each place! Duh!
G: Again I think this one is tough! Treat my family with stuff probably!

How do you beat the January blues?

L: Spend time with friends and family, they make everything better! And that for sure beats the January Blues!
G: Totally agree with Laura! Also a little pamper night with a bath bomb and candles. Maybe even some wine thrown in...!

What's the best holiday you've ever had?

L: Lanzarote with my family, years ago. It's a holiday that will always put a smile on my face when I think about it!
G: Ohhh I don't know how to pick! Probably my holiday to Florida in 2012 as all my close family were there, 12 of us! That holiday was also the first time I got to see my cousin since she moved to Australia in late 2011. But I also loved my holiday to Spain in 2013, mines and my Sam's first holiday and we were there for our second anniversary, it was an amazing time. And finally I had a brilliant holiday to Malia in  2011 with some school friends, however the less said about that the better! So those three are the top ones!

What have you most enjoyed about blogging so far?

L: Everything - the whole blogging thing in general has been brill and getting feedback from people is amazing.
G: I love getting to see how people respond to our blog. Sometimes when I am writing, I forget that people can actually read this! Everyone support and loving comments are really special to me, grateful for anyone and everyone who reads this!

Do you have any top tips for being single on Valentines Day?

L: Don't get sucked into the whole "oh my gosh! I'm so alone on V' day!" It's not a big deal! Get some pizza and watch a chick flick!
G: Again, I'm agreeing with Laura (twinny!). I don't understand people who are like 'Forever Alone, whyyyyyy!' Valentines Day is suppose to be a day of love, you don't need a partner for that. Show your family, show your friends!

Okay, so that's Emma's 11 questions!
