I cannot believe that I have been blogging for less than a month and I have already been nominated for TWO blogger awards! I recently got nominated for the The Liebster Award and now the lovely Bea has kindly nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! You can go check out her post here.


The Sunshine Blogger Award Rules:

1. Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.

2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or in your blog


My Questions

1. What is your current TV series/Movie at the moment and why?

This was a tricky question but after the release of Friends on Netflix I rediscovered my old love! I have always loved friends and have the boxset and it is one of my all time favourite shows. I love how I can now binge watch it even more on Netflix and laugh as if it was the first time watching.

2. Who’s your favourite person in the world?

Again, this was quite a difficult question but I would have to say my grandad. I absolutely love him to pieces! He is the kindest, cutest, most generous person and I am so lucky to have him as my grandad!

3. Tea or coffee?

For this one I can’t choose! I drink way too much of both tea and coffee which is probably not very healthy! I can’t help it, I need the caffeine and I love having a warm cup of tea to drink and be cosy!

4. When do you feel most beautiful?

I feel the most beautiful right before going on a night out! I love spending aaaaaaageees getting ready and doing my makeup and hair. I may not be great at either and I am by no means the most confident person in the world but using my favourite products and seeing what looks I can create really makes me happy.

5. What are your plans for the future?

Aaaah the dreaded future question! This is a question that I am never sure how to answer! I am currently in my third out of four year of uni which is an industrial placement year. This year has totally thrown a spanner in the works! Before this year I thought I definitely wanted to work in a Pharmaceutical company, but after working in a molecular biology lab for 6 months now I am not sure! I guess this is future Chloe’s problem to worry about…

6. Who inspired you with your blog?

The person who inspired this blog is… ME! I wanted to start this blog to help give me something positive to focus on and keep me distracted from some tough times I faced in 2017 (read more about this here.) Beauty Bloggers I read all the time keep me motivated to try and make my blog the best it can be!

7.If you could only use one platform of social media what would it be and why?

If I could only use only form of Social Media it would have to be Twitter! I adore the blogging community I have met on twitter, everyone is so lovely and helpful and really help to motivate me and cheer me up! I love the wide variety of people you get to see the opinions of on twitter, whereas on Facebook I see the dull posts that are the same thing all day everyday.

8.What is your favourite quote and what does it mean to you?

‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light’ – Albus Dumbledore

This is my favourite quote by the Big man himself AD. It motivates me to try and find the good in a bad situation and reminds me that there will always be some light in my darkest days.

9. How would you describe your fashion sense?

Unoriginal. I really need to work on branching out more with my fashion, I much prefer winter time as I can just shove on a jumper and I’m ready to go.

10. What do you do to make yourself feel happy?

Have a cup of tea… you can’t be sad when you’re drinking tea.

11. What piece of advice would you give to new bloggers?

Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers. This is something that I am guilty of. I only started blogging a few weeks ago and although I feel like I have achieved a lot in this time, comparing to other more successful bloggers can make me feel quite down! Always remember that an achievement, no matter how small it is, is still an achievement.

So that’s me!

Hello lovelies, and thank you again for reading another one of my blog posts! I am back again with another review… this time the Morphe 15D Day Slayer palette caught my eye. One thing you should know about me is that I love morphe, the palettes are always stunning, extremely pigmented and really affordable!

About a week ago, I thought I would treat myself to the 15D palette, as the warm toned shades are right up my street! The palette is extremely affordable at only £15, and with a total of 15 shades, they are only £1 per eyeshadow!

img_1071-1

I absolutely LOVE the packaging of this palette. In the past, I have always thought the normal 35 morphe palettes have been quite bulky and plain (almost cheap looking), but this one feels much more luxurious! The packaging is the standard black with the Morphe logo, but has a much heavier feel to it and seems much more sturdy. One MASSIVE bonus with this palette in comparison to my other Morphe collections is that it has a really big mirror. This makes it so much easier to use and is perfect for travel… and with beautiful, wearable shades, this will definitely be my go to travel palette.

This palette has a total of 9 matte shades and 6 shimmer shades, meaning a wide variety of looks can be created with this one palette. I was particularly surprised by the matte shades, which were so pigmented and blended seamlessly and really were the stars of the show! I also loved the shimmer shades, which as always, I used with a setting spray to really make them pop. Bronzed Beauty in particular is gorgeous all over the lid! As a whole, the palette is very warmed toned which is perfect for my style. If you are a more of a cool toned kind of person, this one may not be the one for you!

Lets get into the shades!

img_1079-2

Row 1:

  • Natural – The perfect matte transition shade
  • Spark – A beautiful pale golden shimmer shade, great for an everyday glam look
  • In the crease – The clue is in the name, a lovely pale matte orange shade for defining the crease
  • Forever – A stunning dark matte orange shade
  • Bronzed Beauty – an extremely pigmented shimmering bronze shade for all over the lid

Row 2:

  • Upbeat – A beautiful matte yellow shade perfect for autumn
  • Glow – A shimmery dark orange shade, great for all year round
  • Editor – a matte light brown, works beautifully in the crease
  • Highlight – a shimmering brown toned orange
  • Define – a matte red-brown, perfect for autumn-winter and adds warmth to any look

Row 3:

  • Desert – a matte chocolate brown for adding smokiness to any look
  • Epic – a matte light brown for a subtle day look
  • Blend – my favourite shade! A shimmering rose shade, will work all year round
  • Just eyes – A shimmering purple toned brown for a smoky, sultry look
  • Sweet – A matte deep purple-brown shade for the perfect smoky eye

All of these shadows are really well made, extremely pigmented and blendable and great value for money! The only thing that is missing is a highlight shade, but other than that it is perfect. It has become my new favourite palette and I get so many compliments when I wear it. Well done Morphe!

Do you have this palette? What are your thoughts? Has this review tempted you to buy this palette?

I would love to know your thoughts, so leave a comment below! Thanks again for reading!

Hi lovelies! Thankyou for once again stumbling upon my blog and reading all my rambling posts! I have only been blogging for a couple of weeks, so it was a lovely surprise to find out I was nominated for the Liebster award. I had seen this award floating around on twitter but never expected to receive a nomination! This nomination was timed perfectly as I was planning on doing a ‘girl behind the blog’ style post so you could all get to know me a little better. Hopefully after this post you will know the ‘Chloe’ behind ‘Being Chloe’

I was nominated by Emma from ThisMistyLife. Her lifestyle and travel blog is amazing! All of her and her boyfriends posts are so positive and uplifting and definitely worth the read. If you havn’t seen any of her posts, go do it now and thankyou again Emma for the thoughtful nomination!

The Rules:

  1. Acknowledge the blog that nominated you and display the award.
  2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger has given you.
  3. Share 11 random facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 5-11 other bloggers and notify them of your nomination.
  5. Give the nominees 11 questions to answer

My 10 Questions to answer are:

1. Whats your favourite Country?

This was such a difficult question to answer! I have been to quite a few places in my life, but my absolute favourite has got to be Italy. A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to go on a College trip to Pompeii, Sicily and Stromboli and I fell in love with how beautiful the country was. All three of these places are known for their volcanoes, and it was incredible to walk up them and see the wonderful views of Italy! I am hoping to travel around Europe this summer, and so who knows… maybe this answer will change!

2. Whats your dream job?

Again, another difficult question! I have always struggled to find an answer when people have asked me ‘what I want to do when I am older’ or when I graduate. I am currently studying to gain a Pharmacology degree and I was lucky enough to get a placement year in a Lab working in Non-invasive Prenatal testing! It has made me realise that I want to have a career in scientific research and to hopefully make a difference to people’s lives.

3. Favourite Movie?

Finally, an easy one! Hands down my favourite movie, or should I say movies is Harry Potter. I grew up with these films and they influenced my childhood so much. Even though the franchise finished years ago, to this day I still believe in the magic of Harry Potter. Just this Christmas I got Harry Potter socks! I am incredibly happy that I now have Fantastic Beasts to keep the magic alive, and one of my main goals is to go to Harry Potter World in Florida.

4. Why you like blogging?

Blogging is very new for me. Being-Chloe is only a few weeks old but so far I have loved every minute of it! I personally started blogging to keep me distracted from issues in my personal life (you can read about it here) but now it is so much more than that! Being-Chloe keeps me positive, and allows me to develop my creativity. I love engaging with other bloggers and seeing the amazing things that you have all achieved.

4. Your Favourite book?

Refer to question 3 haha! I love the Harry Potter books of course, even more so than the films and I read them over and over again. I have just purchased a kindle and so hopefully I will find more books to fall in love with!

5. Do you have any pets?img_0860-3

I do! I have my gorgeous little dog millie! She is a massive part of my life and I love her millions. Nothing makes me happier than my lil doggy!

6. Have you got any hobbies?

Growing up I didn’t have any hobbies which upsets me so much! Last year I began trampolining to give me exercise and plus it is SO much fun, I would definitely recommend it! I now consider blogging my hobby. It is something I really enjoy and I am certain it will continue for a really long time.

7. Your favourite food?

Again, another toughy! I tend to like all things Italian, Pizza, Spag Bol etc. I am a fussy eater so I stick to what I know… which isn’t alot. Everyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE nuggets.. like seriously, I love them. I could definitely eat nuggets for every meal, and I can demolish a 20 nugget sharebox after a night out!

8. Goals for this year?

I made a post of all my goals for 2018. One of my main ones is to try and be positive and to focus on all the good things I have in my life! I also want to achieve great things with my lab project at work and to travel the world!

9. Your favourite TV programme?

One of my all time favourite TV programmes has to be FRIENDS. I know, its a classic but who can blame me its bloody brilliant! I often binge watch the box set and still laugh as if it was my first time watching! I have also recently got into watching game of thrones and managed to binge watch all of the series in one month! (a proud personal achievement). Although I didn’t think I would, I also love watching The Crown on Netflix, it is much more interesting than I thought it would be, I would definitely recommend watching it.

10. Your favourite inspirational quote?

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times. If one only remembers to turn on the light – Albus Dumbledore
