Liebster Award

February 17, 2015

Well, I've been seeing the Liebster Award around in random blogs I've been checking out.  However it was only now, when Nina of Nina Thinking nominated me (Thank you!), that I really got to know what it's all about.

So, here's what I found out:
  1. The Liebster Award exists only in the internet and is awarded to bloggers by bloggers.
  2. It is actually of German origin and the word Liebster could actually mean dearest, kind or even "boyfriend"
  3. The award is actually passed on from blogger to blogger and it is solely your choice if you accept it or not.
  4. If you decide to accept it and pass it on, the rules are:
So here it goes...

Questions from Nina:

1. What was the first item of makeup that you or someone else bought for you? Maybelline

2. Why did you start a blog? I just wanted an online journal since handwritten journals are hard to maintain. I've had more personal blogs in the past.. tried Xanga, Angelfire, Tumblr & Multiply. Up until the time that I was actually enjoying it and wanted to take it seriously and went to Blogger. 

3. Who is your favorite blogger? Luanna Perez of Le Happy

4. Do you have any unconventional beauty tips? None I think? I used to prick a Vitamin E gel capsule ang directly apply it to my face? :D

5. Can you cook? Yes!

6. Are you happy with your hair? Used to! When I wasn't in the corporate world yet, I get to color it with whatever color I want, but now it's just too plain. :|

7. What was the most amazing place you've ever been to? Cagbalete Island, Quezon 

8. Do you live in a city, suburban or rural area? City

9.  How would you change your life to make it better? Ohhh. That's big.  I would practice punctuality & discipline in all my endeavors.

10. What was the longest flight you've been on? None. Can't remember. I was a little kid last time I rode a plane. :P

11. Favorite quote? 

My Questions:
  1. Where are you from?
  2. Where is the farthest place you've been to?
  3. What was your experience in # 2?
  4. Would you ever consider couch surfing?
  5. Where to (#4)?
  6. Is avant garde a fashion statement for you?

  9. What's your stand on gay marriage?
  10. What is your best accomplishment in life?

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination! I've done the Liebster already. Here's a link to that:

    I have to agree about keeping a blog versus a personal handwritten journal. I've had that struggle too and it's also one of the reasons I started mine. I still have my planner though since I like doodling or writing but it is a far cry from a diary. :)


Your comment is very much appreciated! Don't forget to leave a link to your blog so I can also check it out and share the love!
