Liebster Award!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Hi lovelies,

I’m so stoked to have been nominated for the Liebster Award not once but three times this week! :D :D *throws confetti*

I was nominated by Raine, Alice and Samantha, who are all amazing new bloggers with their own unique styles. Please check out their awesome blogs in the hyperlinks below! This is such a pleasant surprise given that I was inactive for almost two weeks. Thank you girls so much!! <3

Just a brief introduction, Liebster award is an award that gives an opportunity to new bloggers with less than 200 followers to meet other fellow bloggers. Here’s how the Liebster Award works. If you are nominated you:

– Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.

– Inform them of their nomination by leaving a comment on their blog.

– Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and than ask your nominees 11 questions to keep the chain going.

Since I have been nominated three times, I’ve decided to answer all three sets of questions! I just thought it wouldn’t be fair to the other two if I only picked one set of questions :) So here you go:

From Raine (glittersandjitters)

1. What would you prefer Night Out or Evening In?
Evening in. Somehow I’ve mellowed over the years and lost interest in nights out xD

2. What is your daily skin care routine?
Cleanser with SK-II, Toner from Laneige, Anti-aging serum from Soap & Glory and Water Bank Moisturising Cream from Laneige

3. For what in your life, you feel most grateful?
Being educated in Singapore. It is mandatory for us to spend at least ten years studying the English language and our mother tongue. If not for the government’s foresightedness I would be struggling so bad with learning Chinese right now

4. If you could change anything about the way you have raised, what would it be?
Not much but perhaps less emphasis on grades and more time to explore and learn non-academic stuff

5. What do you value most in friendship?

6. What is your favourite make up?
Ahh, this is a difficult one. It probably is a tie between eye makeup and lipsticks. Eye makeup would encompass both eyeliners and eyeshadows… Am I cheating here? :P

7. What was the best birthday gift you ever had?
I can’t remember all the gifts I’ve received but from memory it is probably the iPod nano from my parents

8. What is the least favourite thing about yourself?
I’m a worrywart. I can go overboard with worrying and that’s not fun most of the time ><

9. Are you morning or night person?
Night! :D

10. What would be your ideal first date?
I don’t think what we do or where we go would make much of a difference. I’d go with a simple dinner and a stroll along the river or chilling somewhere with a nice view. The most important is conversation: my date and I would have so much to talk about that conversation just keeps going and time flies by without us knowing :)

11. Beach Wedding or Garden Wedding?
Garden wedding! <3

From Alice (aliceswonderland17)

1. Why did you start blogging?
I love reading reviews on makeup and beauty products and often rely on these reviews to help decide whether I should get a particular item. I thought that it would be a great idea to share with people the items I think are really good and the ones which aren’t so great for me so that I could help others too! 

2. What is your favourite beauty product?
This is soooo difficult but I’d have to say probably my Water Bank Moisturising Cream from Laneige

3. What is your main goal in life?
To make enough passive income so I can afford to travel and visit my friends all around the world without having leave restrictions 

4. What is your happiest moment ever?
When I received my A level examination grades cause I did very well in them

5. 5 things you can’t live without?
My mobile phone, my planner, my water bottle, my iPod and my Kindle

6. What’s your favourite TV show?
It’s a tie between 2 Broke Girls and Breaking Bad :D

7. What are your hobbies?
I go to the gym very often, and enjoy reading and watching TV shows. I’m usually home just listening to music and checking out new blogs and Youtube videos

8. If you could go anywhere in the world (including the past and the future), where would you go and why?
I’d probably go back into the past about 15 years ago and do some things differently

9. If you could learn any other language, which would it be?
Too many languages I wish to learn! I’d probably pick Arabic

10. Who’s the person you admire the most?
All the moms in the world, cause being a mom is a full-time job in itself and you’ve got to be a wife and a daughter at the same time… and some additional roles for the ones who are working D:

11. Who’s your fashion icon?
I don’t really have one, I would say it would be people with styles that are comfortable yet chic 

From Samantha (dollydimps)

1. Why did you start a blog?
I love reading reviews on makeup and beauty products and often rely on these reviews to help decide whether I should get a particular item. I thought that it would be a great idea to share with people the items I think are really good and the ones which aren’t so great for me so that I could help others too!

2. What three beauty items could you not live without?
My toner and moistuiser from Laneige, as well as my Laneige BB cushion

3. Who is your favourite beauty guru?
Jen from FrmHeadToToe!

4. Who is your favourite fashion designer?
Again I don’t really follow fashion shows that much, so I don’t have a particular favourite designer. I go for styles which are comfortable yet chic

5. What’s your all time favourite movie?

6. If you could visit any country in the world where would you go & why?
Norway or any other Scandinavian country. Norway has the most beautiful scenery and during winter there are awesome ski slopes and also the northern lights!! <3 The tap water in Norway is surprisingly so clean and refreshing – I never knew tap water could taste so good!

7. Describe your style in 5 words.
Simple, comfortable, classy, timeless, practical

8. What’s your #1 beauty item?
My Water Bank Moisturising Cream from Laneige

9. Your top beauty tip?
I’m not a beauty guru, but I think that keeping your skin nourished is very important and doing that goes beyond having 5-6 steps in your skincare regime. Eating right and drinking plenty of water helps maintain the condition of your skin. Our skin is the canvas on which we paint so if the base is already bad then even the best make up in the world is not going to make much of a difference :)

10. What’s your favourite animal?

11. Which perfume could you not live without?
Leila Lou by Rosie Jane
