One Year Blogiversary

Hi everyone,

If you have been reading my blog since the beginning, you would know that this Tuesday coming up is my one year blog anniversary. The next thing I am going to tell you is kind of awkward. I have not told my parents about my blog.

One whole year of this blog and I still have not told mum or dad (or any of my family apart from my brother) about it. I told myself after my first blog post that I would tell them before Christmas (so they knew why I asked for a camera) and I never did and now I have this dilemma that if I tell them, they might be mad at me for starting it and not telling them about it for a whole year. Then on the other hand, if I put it off longer, they'll be even madder at me when I do finally tell them. Or maybe they'll be really proud of me. I don't know and I'm scared.

Please help me guys, I don't know what to do. When I Google it all it comes up with is:

"How to tell my parents that I'm pregnant"

and obviously that isn't going to work for me.

This is a kind of sad anniversary, but if you have any suggestions of how I can tell my parents, please leave them in the comments, because I really need help. Also, if you were expecting a giveaway or something, I might do that for my 100th post anniversary. If I tell my parents.

Anyway, thanks for the help if you comment below and I will talk to you next week!


PS: Feel free to tweet me reminders to tell my parents about my blog using my Twitter handle @nickyjane99 and use #TellThemNicky

Liebster Award

Hi everyone,

I was nominated by ItsMaddieHBU a little while ago to do the Liebster Award. When I was nominated for this I had no idea what it was so here is a quick run down.

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to other bloggers with less than 200 followers. The "nominee" has to answer eleven questions written by the blogger who tagged them. That blogger then has to nominate 11 other bloggers and write 11 questions for those people to answer. And the cycle continues forever...

On with the questions:

1. What's the weirdest dream you've ever had?

I think the weirdest dream I have ever had would be the time I dreamed that I was coming home from school camp and that I had to put my stuff away in a metal cupboard outside. Then a black piglike creature was growling at me and chased me up the stairs to inside my house, where I locked the door so it couldn't get me. Then my Dad started putting my stuff away (inside this time) and decided it should go away in the fridge that was on the deck. Once we were done, he started showing me his 86 year old cutlery.
btw this was dreamed about 5-6 months ago

2. If you could only use one lipstick for the rest of your life what lipstick would it be?

The one lipstick I would wear for the rest of my life would be Maybelline Colour Whispers in Pink Possibilities. It is a really nice colour that (I think) can be worn all year round, even by older women.

3. How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Nice, smart, sometimes silly

4. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?

I would choose either chocolate or cheese. I love both of them. I will go with cheese because there are so many different kinds of cheese.

5. If you had 48 hours to live what would you do?

I would call all of my friends and family and tell them what they mean to me and then I would build a time machine so that I could live those 48 hours again and again and again (is that cheating?). I would travel the world, see what is really inside the Magic 8 Ball and buy all the makeup.

6. What was your childhood dream job?

When I was little, I went through phases. I wanted to be a landscaper, journalist, pet shop owner, author, makeup artist, a mother and an accountant (because that's what I thought my mum was).

7. What's your favorite season and why?

My favourite season would be spring because it is warm and sunny and there are flowers everywhere.

8. If you had no fear what would you do?

I would jump out of a plane, off a bridge and run down a main road completely starkers.

9. Why did you start a blog and what is the meaning behind your blog name?

I started my blog as something to do in my spare time last year, mainly because I was bored and Zoella inspired me to. My blog name is my name. My friends call me Nicky and Jane is my middle name.

10. If you won 1,000,000 on the lottery what would you do?

I would give quarter of it to charities and the rest would be split between my immediate family members. Which would leave about $187500 for me to buy things with. I would buy a new phone, makeup and lots and lots of chocolate (and cheese).

11. What's your favorite book?

My favourite book is the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I think I have mentioned this before, but I absolutely love that series.

I tag:
1.     Melissa from  Lemonmel
2.   Kate from Beautiboe
3.   Aine from Aine Beauty
4.   Emily from LifeofEmilyyx
5.   Andrea from TinyBeautyBlog
6.   Miss Ani from A Touch of Sparkle
7.   Jordanne from JordsFaith
8.   Jessica from Jessica's Beauty Journal
10.  Lara  from Little Miss Makeup
11.    Alejandra from Exquisite Glow

My questions are:
1. What is your favourite thing to do on weekends?
2. When did  you first "discover" makeup?
3. What is your must have beauty product?
4. What is you least favourite season?
5. What is your favourite food?
6. What is your favourite clothing item?
7. How do you keep organised?
8. What is your favourite blogging tip?
9. What is your favourite app on your phone?
10. What camera do you use for blog photography?
11. If you could go back in time to fix a mistake, what would it be and would you?

They are all the things I have to do for this blog post (I think). I hope you enjoyed this post and I will talk to you again next week.

August Favourites

Hi everyone,

As it is now September, I think it is time for my August Favourites. I am sorry that I have been away a little while; I have been incredibly busy over the last few weeks with schoolwork and assignments and other family commitments too (it was my grand-dad's 70th birthday last week).

Anyway, on with the favourites.

My first favourite is a nail polish. It is from Chi Chi's Salon formula range and it is the pinky purple shade (they don't have names). I really like this colour and the colour lasts a long time and is not streaky. I applied to coats to make it completely opaque.

The next this I have been loving is something I got from my birthday (wow, that really narrows it down, doesn't it?, said the voice in my head). It is The Body Shop's Tea Tree Flawless BB Cream. I just love this. It is my exact skin tone and it has kind of cleared up my face (not that I wore it that much, but whatever).

The next things are all also things I got for my birthday. The first of those is the Nude by Nature Eye Shadow palette. It is great; it has 3 colours that I can use on my eyelids and the middle shade I can use on my eyebrows, not that I think eyebrows frames the face, but it does make my eyebrows look less sparse. I use the Nude by Nature brushes to apply this.

The second last of my favourites of this past month is the Soap and Glory Sugar Crush body wash. I ab-so-lute-ly love this body wash. It smells amazing and keeps me clean. I would like to try other body washes from Soap and Glory because I think they will smell just as amazing.

The final thing in my favourites this month is the Tangle Teezer. I love this. I don't use any other hair brushes now and my mum tells me to say 'ow' because all the other hair brushes I have used pull on my hair and it hurt, but the Tangle Teezer doesn't. Now that I have the Tangle Teezer in my life, I won't have to worry about knots or tangles in my hair any more!

They are all my favourites for this month. I do hope that you enjoyed this post. I will (hopefully) be back next week with a VERY special post. See you then.
