The Liebster Award

Hello! I'm back from Tenerife! I had the most amazing time, and will be doing a post on it soon before summer's out. But this post is about a lovely little surprise I came back to on Friday. I have been nominated by the amazing Lauren from Lauren Evie for the Liebster Award! Its my first nomination and I'm so thrilled and thankful for it! If you haven't heard of it, please have a peak below.

Eleven random facts about me

1. I'm an aspiring actress, and I've done various projects in short film, feature film, TV, adverts and on the stage.  

2. I'm obsessed with CSI, NCIS, Law and Order and The Mentalist. This is partly my mum's fault, as she loves it too!

3. I used to be allergic to peanuts, but I was luckily enough to grow out of the allergy when I was 5. 

4. I have a lot of clothes. And I mean a lot. My clothes are currently filling 8 drawers and 2 bulging wardrobes with several hangers on the doors.

5. I'm a book worm. I'm currently working my way through Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

6. I love travelling. When I go on holiday, I try and discover little gems that not many people know about. 

7. I love the colour blue.

8. I have freak moments of OCD-like behaviour, and I get really into it! Stand in the way of me putting my enormous collection of books into alphabetical author order, or colour-coding my nail varnishes and there will be consequences. 

9. I used to have hair down to my knees. When I was younger I hated having it cut, and as I never got split ends, we just let it grow! 

10. I'm a musical nerd and proud! I'm routing for a musical radio station to be created!

11. I wear glasses! I usually hate having my photo taken with them on, but one day they'll make an appearance on here for all of your benefits ;)

Eleven questions from Lauren:

1. What was it that made you start blogging?
Company Magazine, as they made it look so much fun (which it is). Also bloggers such as Bip Ling, MediaMarmalade and Ophelia Horton really inspired me.

2. What one beauty product can't you live without?
That is definitely a tricky one! I would probably say my Rimmel London ScandelEyes Mascara or my Aveeno Cream, which I have been using since I was a little kid for my eczema. It's so moisturising!

3. What is your most loved fashion trend at the moment?
I'm loving the 1990's revival at the moment, especially dungarees. I'm also looking forward to trying a bit of the punk trend that's arising. 

4. If you could only shop in one high street store for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Miss Selfridge! Although my tight budget means I can't buy everything in there, every time I walk in I just fall in love with every single piece!

5. Who is your favourite blogger / youtuber and why?
MediaMarmalade. I just think she looks incredible in everything she wears, without being a fashion slave. I seriously recommend!

6. Do you feel comfortable leaving your house without makeup on?
Sometimes. When I was younger, I wouldn't dream about leaving the house without at least eyeliner, but now I'm more relaxed. If I'm just out to post a letter or see family then I go completely free, but apart from that, mascara is my minimum. 

7. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?
America! I've always dreamed of going, but flights are unfortunately so expensive. 

8. Describe yourself in three words.
Friendly, crazy, smiley. 

9. What is your evening skincare routine?
Take make up off, cleanse, tone, mouisturise. 

10. What made you choose your blog name?
I'm actually not too sure, a lot of names went through my head when thinking about it, but when I was actually creating it, Away With The Fairies just popped into my head and stuck there! I adored fairies when I was a kid, and loved the idea of going to the bottom of my garden and spending the day with them. 

11. What was the most recent fashion purchase you made, and what made you buy it?
When I was in Tenerife, I bought this gorgeous beaded top with Aztec inspired shapes on it. It was ridiculously cheap (£3.50 in Sterling) and was nothing like I have in my wardrobe. 

My eleven questions:

1. You're unleashed into your favourite shopping centre with unlimited money: what's the first shop you hit?

2. If you could be another nationality, where would you be from?

3. What's the best holiday you've ever been on?

4. What is your favourite music genre?

5. Favourite colour?

 6. What beauty product would you cry about if they stopped making it?

7. What are the first three things that you pull out of your make up bag?

8. What do you love about fashion?

9. If you could pick six women to hang out with for the day, who would they be?

10. Who's your fashion idol?

11. What's your most prized possession?
