Back From Holiday and Awards!

I came back from a lovely holiday to find that I have been tagged for several fantastic awards! Thank you so much! I'm constantly amazed that so many of you read my blog and like it <3

I know that the rules state that 10 blogs should be tagged for the awards, but I'm cheating and nominating 3 for each award, I hope there will be no hard feelings!

Top 10 Award


I was tagged for this award by Opinionated Little Finger, So Nailed and Varnish Me. Thank you so much ladies!

The rules for this award includes listing your top 10 cosmetics, and for me my must have products are:

Seche Vite. No explanation needed, right?
Cuticle Butter - home made or Lemony Flutter from Lush
Cuticle remover - I use Blue Cross (Bought from Tiffany Nail Supply)
Lucy Minerals Mineral Foundation, custom blended. I love this stuff, it's the only foundation I use. Plus Annie who owns the company and makes the makeup is so nice.
Natural Lip Balm. I'm a total lip balm addict, and my substance of choice is natural and preferably organic. I love Badger Balm, Crazy Rumors and Honeybee Gardens. I buy them all from Supersmoocher.
Mineral Blush from The All Natural Face. Super cheap and amazing (amazing!) colours that suit my difficult pale skin tone so well. I love Every Day Is a Good Day in particular.
Mirror Shine Lip Stick by 17. I'm not a lip stick gal at all, so this sheer, glossy lip stick is perfection for me!
Wild Curl Mascara also by 17. My all time fave. Easily rivals L'Oreal Voluminous, and unlike L'Oreal it's cruelty free.
Laura Geller Baked Cake Eyeliner. This is a super pigmented baked eyeliner that I use either dry or wet with an angled brush. It's my all time fave eyeliner for the upper lash line.
Last but not least, the most obvious one - Nail Polish!

I'm tagging:

Mini Nail Blog - What this girl can't make in acrylics isn't worth making!
Addicted To Polish  - Beautiful nails and fun colour choices.
Acetone and Old Lacquer -  There seems to be something in the water in Finland, making some of the ladies there super talented? This is no exception!

Then I got tagged for no less than four awards by the talented Minnie from Mini Nail Blog
