My Liebster Award Nomination

By 11:37 AM

Long time, no see!

I apologize for not posting more consistently lately, but this past week has been incredible busy and exhausting for me, so posting has been put on the backburner. I'll be posting a lot more this upcoming week, however!

Recently, I was nominated for the Liebster award by fellow blogger Lauren (aka An Impatient Scottish Girl), which I'm super excited about! Thanks so much for the nomination!

These are the rules for this post:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, and link back to them.  
2. Answer the questions they sent you.  
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers to answer your own set of questions.  
4. Notify these 11 bloggers you nominated them.

I really like the idea of this, because it helps those bloggers with fewer followers get a little more attention, as well as bringing bloggers together.

Lauren asked me the following questions, and at the bottom of the post I will nominate 11 of my own to answer my questions. Let's get started!


1. Favorite blogger?

This is tough! I'd say my favorite blogger of the moment is Erika from Beauty & the Baby Carriage. I love her posts and her writing style, and she's super friendly!

2. Favorite season?

Definitely fall. I'm not a fan of hot weather! I love the changing of the leaves and the cooler weather.

3. What is the meaning behind your blog name?

It took me awhile to come up with a blog name that I felt truly fit me. I wanted it to be something that I felt defined me - what makes me, me? I settled on Leather & Lipstick because it combines my love of fashion and beauty. Leather jackets are my favorite thing in the world, and lipstick ... well, what beauty blogger doesn't love a good lipstick? It just works!

4. Online shopping or making a day of it by wandering around for hours in shops?

Definitely visiting shops. I enjoy online shopping, but there's something so much better about actually being able to physically find items and of course, getting them immediately rather than waiting!

5. What's your favorite mascara?

The Maybelline cat-eye mascara in the yellow tube. I can't remember what it's called exactly, but I LOVE that mascara so much.

6. What's your favorite book?

I love so many books, this is tough! Probably Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, or The Great Gatsby. Among many, many others.

7. Tell me three of your holy grail products.

Urban Decay All-Nighter setting spray, Got2B blow drying lotion, and Big Sexy Hair hairspray.

8. Bath or shower?

Bath, hands down. Nothing beats a good hot bath.

9. The worst beauty mistake you have seen?

You're never fully dressed without a smile!

10. Tell me one random fact about yourself.

I'm a trumpet player!

11. Your dream holiday destination?

The Bahamas.


Here are my 11 nominations:

1. Cathlee from StylzByKattz
2. Karina from The Blushing Teapot
3. Gyudy from Gyudy's Notes of Beauty
4. Samantha from Samantha's Little World
5. Yasmin from Morning Coffee and Manolos
6. Dagmara from Mummy's Beauty Corner
7. Emily from Teenage Digest
8. Beth from Bethallama's World
9. Tram from TheHairPinTram
10. Emily from Good Girl Gone Brum
11. Clarice from Latest Trend Fashion

Ladies, here are my 11 questions I'd like you to answer!

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?

2. What's one awful fashion trend you followed when you were younger?

3. What's your favorite movie?

4. Do you have any tattoos/piercings?

5. What's your favorite beauty product?

6. Where are you from?

7. Do you collect anything?

8. Do you have any bad habits when it comes to beauty? (biting nails, etc.)

9. What's your dream job?

10. If you could live anywhere, where would you be?

11. Who's your favorite actor/actress?

Be sure to tweet me when you answer so I can check it out!
