The Liebster Award | Simply Jadey

I got nominated for The Liebster Award by one of my lovely followers, who blogs over at After reading her post and seeing that she had nominated me to answer the questions that she had made up, I genuinely felt over the moon and so flattered! I have never been nominated for any award before and so it felt like a huge achievement for me personally, so thank you very much for the nomination!

For those of you who may not already know, The Liebster Award is basically a unique way to recognise up and coming bloggers that might not have quite as many followers compared to other people in the wonderful world of the internet! It's a way to promote their website and share a little bit of love, because I mean, who doesn't like spreading the love every now and then? To accept the award, you essentially have to thank the person who nominated you and then link back to their blog, as well as nominating 11 fellow fairly new bloggers and give them 11 quirky questions to answer in response!

I'm now just going to go ahead and answer the questions..
1) What is your go to lip colour?
Oooh, this is a tricky one! I'm absolutely addicted to lip products and I can never go shopping without buying at least 1! However, I'd probably have to say that my go to lip colour, which I'm usually always wearing if I'm going out is my MAC Lipstick in the shade 'Bombshell'. It's one of the less raved about shades, but I absolutely adore it and I don't have any faults with it either. If you're looking for a MAC lipstick to buy or just a new lipstick in general, then you should definitely go for this option.
2) Where do you hope to see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years time, I'll be 20, (wow, I'll actually be an adult then.. what a scary thought!) so I'd like to think that I'll have done quite well for myself then in all aspects of my life. I'll hopefully have a boyfriend (it would be nice to have a little love from a boy!), be at University somewhere in London studying Psychology or something to do with being a child and adolescent psychotherapist, whilst living away from home (we'll see about that one), continuing with my blog and maybe I'll have even started a YouTube, have travelled the world and have a job working somewhere within mental health for young people! I'd like to have done some volunteering and charity work too. Not too much to ask for, eh?
3) What do you do to relax?
I'm currently in Year 10 at school, so I'm in my first year of GCSE's, which means that I can often get pretty stressed if I'm not careful, as the work can very easily just pile up! If I'm having a particularly hectic time and I just want to de-stress, then I'll usually run a bubble bath, obviously featuring a Lush bath bomb or bubble bar, put a face mask on (I'm currently loving the BB Seaweed one, which is also from Lush - what a shocker), put on some comfy night time clothes and then I'll light a candle, put my fairy lights on, read a book (I'm currently reading All Of The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven) and then I'll either watch Once Upon A Time, Pretty Little Liars (I'm watching for the new season at the moment) or Gossip Girl (my new obsession) on Netflix or I'll watch some YouTube videos and read some blogs! Sometimes I write up my own posts during the evening too! I may also have a hot drink and some cookies or biscuits too. Don't judge... You know you're the same, so don't go pointing the finger at me!
4) Night in or night out?
Definitely a night in! I never usually go out during the night-time, because I'm only 15 and I have other things to do during the evenings, but I definitely prefer to relax. Even if I got invited out, I would probably rather stay in anyway. Nothing beats lazy, chilled nights.
5) If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I would definitely have to say mascara! If I was being specific, then my favourite at the moment (it's actually been my favourite for ages!) would have to be the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. It's just the best. It's the I'm yet to try anything better, because in my opinion, this is the best that you can get and having tried many mascaras myself, this is quite an announcement to make, so you best believe that I'm not joking!
6) What is your favourite meal?
I'm very much an Italian foods kinda gal. I love anything Italian! Pizza, Pasta, Spaghetti.. you name it, I probably love it. Out of all of those 3, I really can't pick, but at the moment, it would probably be pasta, because I've been having that the most recently.
7) What is your favourite high street clothing store?
Oooh, this is yet another tricky one for me to choose from! I would say that I've always loved New Look. They are affordable, they are always showing off the latest trends, they have a wide variety of different sizes, they also do amazing jewellery, handbags, shoes and even underwear! I really don't think you can go wrong with them if I'm honest.
8) What is your favourite film?
I would probably say that my favourite film is 'Miss You Already'. I don't want to give too much away, but it's honestly such a beautiful film and it had myself and my friend bawling our eyes out at the end of it! It's described as a drama film/romance and so if you're into that sort of thing, then you will definitely be into it. It's essentially about 2 best friends that go through a lot together and it really is ever so touching. If you want to find out more, then you'll have to go and watch it or watch the trailer, because I'm not giving out any spoilers!
9) Who is your style icon?
I actually have 2 style icons - Alexa Chung and Lucy Hale. I couldn't pick between the 2 of them, because I genuinely love them both. I feel like they really know how to wear sophisticated, dressy outfits, but they also know how to rock the casual, chilled look too. They get the balance right every time, in my opinion. Not to mention, Aria Montgomery is possibly my favourite girl from Pretty Little Liars! She's just such a stunner.
10) What do you enjoy most about blogging?
Quite honestly, I love everything about blogging. I haven't really experienced any of the negative parts to it yet, so I do feel very appreciative about that, as it's given me the opportunity to really focus on the positives! I love how I have made so many Internet friends through it. A few of my very best blogging girlies are Shannon (diaryofashygirll), Eleanor (eleanorclaudie), Grace (gracexkate), my collab girlies (there's 7 of them, so I won't name them all, but they know who they are!), Amie (thecurvaceousvegan), Eve (helloimeve), Alana (alanajaneblogger), Charlotte (scarletslippers), Bethan (bepbeee), Laura (blossomofhope), Frances (royally rouge) and Anna (thumbelina2016). I'm sure I'm forgetting some of you and I'm so very sorry if I have, but you all know who you are anyway! I really do value every friendship that I have created and I'm so proud of all of the girls I know, as they are all doing so incredibly well for themselves. They are all so lovely and gorgeous and I can't thank them enough for supporting me and encouraging me to do the thing that I love the most.
11) If you could buy anything today, what would it be?
The 'Calm: Calm the mind. Change the world' book, for sure! I've already got the app on my phone, even though I don't really get a chance to use it that much, but I really would love to purchase this book at some point in the next few months. I'm an incredibly anxious person and I feel as though this would really help to calm me down, distract me and put things into perspective every once in a while when I feel like picking it up. Whether you read it in the morning for a little pick-me-up or you read it before bed to detox after a long day, I'm pretty sure most people would find it to become an essential for them.
So, that's it! Thank you so, so much for reading my answers. I hope you liked them or found them somewhat interesting.
