My Sugar Lips Might Be A BlogStar & Link Love

If you didn’t know already, I also have another beauty blog just for lip products called Lip Stalker.  It’s looking rather bare at the moment because I can’t find enough hours in the week to do everything I want to do.  Anyway, last week, I was amazed to find out that my Sugar Lips video got shortlisted in the beautyheaven Australian BlogStar Awards (ABAs) 2012 for Best Beauty Vlog.

If you click through, you can see all the other shortlisted entries.  If you like my video, please take a moment to sign up to beautyheaven and vote for me, Lip Stalker.  Alternatively, if you like someone else’s video, please vote for them.

Link Love

  • {Makeup Utopia}  OMG!  I am not using any of my make-up brushes until I give them a good wash!!!  See how much bacteria is on unwashed make-up brushes and you’ll get a fright too!
  • {My Funny Valentine}  A cheaper and glossier alternative to Clinique Chubby Sticks.  These babies are next on my shopping list!  Went looking for them yesterday but couldn’t find them anywhere *sad face*
  • {Chasing Elixir}  I know my readers love a good giveaway so click away!
  • {Beautyholics Anonymous}  Free e-book alert for beauty bloggers who want to know what to write in their media kit.

And enjoy the remainder of your weekend!  I will be blogging about the ASOS dresses I bought next week so look out for that.  Speak soon, xoxo.

The Liebster Blog Awards

The Liebster is a award for those who have less than 300 Google followers but deserves a lot more recognition and following than what they currently get. They are the unsung heroes of the blogsphere, plugging away in their little corner, churning out fantastic work and we need to do something to help them get some publicity.

Last week, Lilpil at Things I Love AND Di from Max The Unicorn chose The Best Beauty Blog to receive a Liebster Blog Award.  YAY!  Thank you so much lovely ladies!

Lilpil always has detailed beauty product reviews sprinkled with beauty tips and advice.  I have met her twice IRL and she is so sweet!

Di’s blog is a fun mix of movies and beauty product reviews.  Her twitter is hilarious and she has a dirty sense of humour which  I like!!

If you receive the award you link back to the blogger(s) that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs.

There are so many amazing blogs I read so it’s really hard to choose 3.  Nevertheless, here are the blogs which I pass the Liebster Blog Award to.  Not only are the blogs a great read, but the bloggers behind the blogs are lovely too.

Makeup by Sara-May

Sara-May is currently doing a 30-day FOTD challenge and so far, I am loving her looks!


Coco is a full-time working mum who still has time to manage a beauty blog.  I admire her and one day, I want to be a pretty mom too!

Beauty By An Indian

I have recently started reading Maddy’s blog and getting to know her via Twitter.  She’s a lovely girl.  I am loving the products she reviews – Chanel and Nicole by OPI to name a few.

Of course, there are many blogs out there who deserve a shout-out and I totally nominate all the bloggers out there with less than 300 GFC followers for the Liebster Blog Award.

I am still a newbie to beauty blogging and I am slowly getting more followers – and it’s a happy day whenever someone writes a lovely comment and/or starts following my blog.  I am sure all bloggers out there feel the same.  Anyway, if you want to check out other amazing beauty blogs, I do have a variety of links here or you can click on the Inspiration tab at the top of this page – because all beauty blogs are an inspiration to me.  And if you’re not on there, please leave a comment and I will pop you on the list and follow your blog.  (Gosh, I sound like I am giving an Oscar acceptance speech here!!  LOL)

4.  Have you got a broken lipstick?  Makeup and Macaroons shows you how to fix it.
