Liebster Award

I've been nominated for two Liebster awards! Thank you guys for reading my posts and to The Sorting House and Kassica both for nominating my blog! Since I have two sets of questions I hope it's okay if I answer them in two different posts.

Liebster Award


Liebster is a term of endearment in German, e.g. sweetheart, dearest :) You have probably seen this award in lots of new blogs as it is meant to be awarded to up & coming blogs with less than 200 followers. A few rules for the award...
- Link back to the blogger that nominated you
- Write 11 random facts about yourself
- Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger that nominated you
- Create 11 questions of your own questions for blogs you would like to give the Liebster award
- Choose up to 11 blogs to award <3


MY 11 FACTS AND SECRETS :P

1. I love to swim and anything to do with the ocean.
2. I play City Story on my iPhone then wonder why I'm spending time creating fictional cities!
3. The last country I was in before this was Qatar.
4. I like Red Velvet cupcakes, yum.
5. My bedroom is painted lemon cream yellow.
6. I have way too much makeup products.
7. I want to plan some type of charity/volunteer vacation next year
8. I love to cook.
9. I would like to learn more about art history.
10. My favourite perfume when I was 17 was Ralph by Ralph Lauren.
11. I love people who have a sense of adventure and are open-minded and kind.


11 QUESTIONS FROM THE SORTING HOUSE

1. What are your goals in life?
To be happy, to be in love, to have adventures, to have children, to always be independent financially and emotionally, to stay humble. I have lots of goals but those are a few :)

2. Where were you born and do you still live there?
I was born in Singapore but actually my parents were living in Thailand then and my Mum just came over to have me. I moved around quite a lot growing up but now I am back in Singapore. I moved here a couple of years ago from London.

Sweet Singapore :)




3. Do you speak other languages or do you want to learn one?
I'm learning Spanish now, I think it's a beautiful language and I hope I can speak at least basic Spanish one day! :)

4. Which beauty product can you not live without?
Probably concealer because I can get dark undereye circles. I really like YSL Touche Eclat and have used it for around ten years I think!

5. Describe your style in 3 words?
I'm not sure I probably don't have a very unique style :P Maybe classic, city, romantic. I have a lot of clothes from Zara which I guess is quite urban city style but still feminine.

6. Do you believe the world will end this year?
No, I hope not!

7. If you could go on holiday anywhere and money is no object, where would you go and why?





I would go to Antarctica. I just think it's so out there and like nothing I've seen before. It looks so beautiful but it's so expensive to organize travel there.

Antarctica!

8. What type of music do you listen to when you need cheering up?
I listen to all types of music so I think it would just be any song with good vibes and good lyrics.

9. Do you believe in the supernatural, if not which is the most plausible?
I'm not sure, maybe. I believe in God so I guess so.

10. Who is your style icon?
Some of my favourites lately are: Christine Centenera, Miranda Kerr, Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne.

11. If you had to wear one outfit for the rest of your life what would it be?
One amazing summer dress.

  5. Thank you so much for nominating me and following! I'm following back now(:

    Singapore is one of the places I'd love to visit, and I wish I knew how to speak Spanish. I'm limited to being fluent in just English at the moment, but I'm hoping to become better in Chinese and French when I have the time!

  7. Querida Becca: Como te dije te escribiré en español para que practiques. MUCHAS GRACIAS POR EL PREMIO. Creo que ahora tengo que contestar a las preguntas en mi blog ¿no? En cuanto tenga un poco de tiempo,lo haré.
    Me ha gustado mucho tu entrevista, así te conozco mejor. Fíjate has puesto una foto de Salamanca, precisamente la ciudad en donde yo vivo, ya ves que casualidad.
    Ánimo con el español; espero que mi blog te sirva para seguir practicando ¿eh?

    Un beso

    1. Gracias Armando, reading your blog will definitely help me practise! :) Wish I could write this in Spanish, so far I only know very basic but I can understand quite well what you have written :) Yes, only if you like to answer the questions please do. I realized a few of them are more for ladies, you can skip those, sorry about that!

  11. Congratulations on your two nominations! That's terrific, and must feel amazing. That's really a pat on the shoulder, I think, and tells you that you are doing a great job. :D
    This was a really interesting read. I love that you are learning Spanish, too (I am as well), and I, like you, hope to be able to just speak basic Spanish one day. Like, that is my goal right now, as everything beyond that seems unlikely or me. Don't you think it's hard?
    Love xoxo
