laine blogger award

Tag the blogger who awarded you.
Answer the 5 questions below.
Award the Laine Blogger Award to 5 of your favorite bloggers.

I hope your week is going well so far. I am trying to be as productive as possible, but it's difficult sometimes! Onto today's post: I am really excited, because I was recently nominated for the Laine Blogger award by the wonderful Tracey at Marienni Blog!

1.  What is your current beauty obsession?
 Lately, I am really loving Rimmel's Clean Finish foundation. I have tried a lot of different foundations, both high-end and drugstore, but lately I am loving this one the most! It brightens the look of my skin and adds a warm, natural glow. I always feel confident about my makeup when I am wearing it!

2.  What is one beauty item you wished you owned?
 At the moment, I am really wanting to add the Naked Palette 2 to my collection. I have the original Naked palette and I absolutely love it. Being a fan of more neutral colours, I would love to play with this one and see what I can come up with!

3.  What is your favorite post to read/write about?
 My favourite posts to read about are probably either makeup reviews/swatches, or more personal posts. I love finding out about makeup products and people's lives! My favourite posts to write are probably inspiration posts. It's great to share things that inspire me!

4.  What inspired you to become a blogger?
 I have always wanted to be a writer. I was growing frustrated with the lack of progress toward that goal, and ended up creating my blog as a way to motivate myself and get my writing out there.

5.  What nail polish are you wearing right now?
Where I work, we aren't allowed polish on our nails (which upsets me greatly!) but on my toes I am currently wearing Meet Me At Sunset by Essie. 

My nominations for the Laine Blogger Award are: 
What do you have planned for the rest of the week?
