Liebster Award!

I was nominated by Victoria from Dreaming Daffodils. As a newer blogger, it's kind of exciting to get a blog award!

"The Liebster award is passed on through the blogging community for bloggers with under 200 GFC followers, helping to promote their blog. The rules are pretty simple & easy to follow so here goes...

1. Nominees must link back the person who nominated them. 2. Once nominated you must write 11 random facts about yourself. 3. You must also answer the 11 questions from the person that has nominated you.  
4. Come up with 11 questions to ask the 11 people you have nominated for the award."

Eleven Facts About Myself
  1. I have never had a cat or dog before, but I hope to change that in the future! I'm thinking a cat or two within the next few years maybe!
  2. I am a quarter Japanese, which you probably could not tell! Haha
  3. I love traveling almost more than anything and wish I could do it more often. 
  4. I really love to write, but if I have a due date, I procrastinate horribly!
  5. I'm interested in anything medical related, and do not easily get grossed out.
  6. I only started painting my nails last spring. Before that, I just had no interest. I enjoy it now, but I don't have to have my nails painted.
  7. I am near-sighted, and I carry the gene for color blindness.
  8. I am a huge nerd at heart! This includes video games, anime, you name it! I'm also a huge Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings fan.
  9. My favorite TV shows to watch right now include Pretty Little Liars (so addicting!), Grey's Anatomy (I've been watching this for years!), Once Upon a Time, and Revenge. My favorite animes are Yu Yu Hakusho and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood!
  10. I'd rather have nice make-up than expensive clothes. It's just how I feel. lol
  11. I love spending time with family and friends more than anything else! I am very lucky to have such great people in my life.

Victoria's Questions
1. What are your top 5 beauty products?

  1. The Urban Decay Naked Palettes: Honestly it's hard to choose just one, because I just love these neutral palettes!
  2. Maybelline Mineral Power Powder Foundation in Classic Ivory: I know I've mentioned this before, but it's just a long-standing favorite. I've probably gone through over 10 containers over the past 6 years.
  3. Maybelline Cover Stick Concealer in Light Beige: It's the best at covering up blemishes, and it does not budge!
  4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Dollface (or any of the Tarte blushes I own): My favorite blushes apart from The Balm ones. Dollface wears all day, and the color goes with any look!
  5. Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm: It's the best lip balm, bringing my lips back from the dead. It also smells amazing and gives a subtle, glossy sheen.

2. What is your dream job? Why?
I'd love to be a nurse practitioner or to own my own makeup brand! 
3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
When people are mean for no reason at all.
4. If you could live anywhere in the world where would you choose to live?
Hawaii comes to mind, but I'm not sure!
5. Why did you begin blogging?
I just love beauty products and wanted to share what I know.
6. What do you look for when it comes to skincare?
Keeping my skin acne-free is always the end goal.
7. What is the funnest thing you have ever done?
Something clumsy, like losing my shoe in the bushes or falling into a trash can. Middle school was a roller coaster apparently. 
8. What movies have made you cry?
The last two Harry Potter movies totally made cry!
9. What cosmetics brand is your favorite?
High-end: Urban Decay
Low-end: Maybelline
And this is if I only had to pick one for each category!
10. Do you have any interesting hobbies?
Aside from nerdy things, I'm a huge music collector!
11. What was your favorite moment of 2012?
Going to Vegas with my friends and boyfriend was pretty amazing! And I had a lot of good times with my family.

  1. Thank you, for the nomination! I've always wanted to try Tarte's blushes, especially Exposed~

    1. No problem! Exposed really is a lovely, natural rosy nude blush and very unique to my collection. I would get it if you want to try Tarte! (or wait until Tarte has a friends and family sale).
