Liebster Award!!!


Once again, I am at a loss for words. Thank you to Is That A Hair In My Biscuit and Travelling True North for presenting me with this award!!! I was absolutely floored last Sunday when I found out about A Lovely Blog Award, so I took a few days to process it so I could write a proper post that didn’t simply consist of “AHHH I’m so happy; I am SO HAPPY!!!” As much as I wish I had posted that, let’s face it: it wouldn’t have been the most interesting read. By the second or third line, you would have gone, “Ok, she’s excited and happy. We get it already.” But at least you would have got the picture.

But then earlier this week, I arrived at school and checked my phone, receiving the wonderful news that two people had nominated me for this award!!! So yes, I took another few days to process it, and this post is the result. Frankly, between receiving this award and the A Lovely Blog Award the other day, I have never felt so cool. I am talking cucumber cool here, and I don’t toss that phrase around lightly.

So, here are the rules for accepting the Liebster Award:

  •  Post the award on your blog.
  •  Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog
  •  Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  •  Nominate 11 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
  •  Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 11 questions.

Below are the answers to the questions asked by both my nominees:

Is That A Hair In My Biscuit:

1.  What color is your hair?  Tell the truth, now. I’m a blonde . . . underneath all the brunette lies. 

2.  What kind of car do you drive? Currently I am driving my mother’s car because I actually like taking the bus (strange, I know). But seriously, there are some really nice people on the bus. 

3.  What is your favorite kind of gum? 5 gum: minty and fresh all day long. 

4.  Where were you when you had your first kiss? A movie theatre. Classic, I know. 

5.  Do you wear glasses or contacts? I’ll wear both, but glasses are more convenient and, furthermore, my eyesight is so close to being perfect that most times I’m just lazy and don’t wear either. 

6.  How many siblings do you have? I am an only child, so zero. But I have a cat, so I think that counts for something. 

7.  Where did you go on your last vacation? London, England. Hands down the best trip of my life, and I would kill to live there. 

8.  Where are you going on your next vacation? Hopefully Paris. I have a dream of renting out a flat and living the Parisian life. 

9.  What was your worst job ever? I’ve actually only ever had one, which is the job I had this past summer, and I loved it. So there hasn’t been a “worst” job for me. 

10.  Have you ever had a bad haircut?  Explain! I wouldn’t say any of them started out bad, but later on I had a bit of buyer’s regret when I got bangs. You know, the across-the-forehead kind. I just couldn’t pull it off then. I’m thinking of trying them again though for a bit of a change. 

11.  Where is your favorite place to write? The university library has a wonderful corner nook, complete with a window and heater. Basically, it’s the top real estate as far as library nooks go.

Now for the questions from Travelling True North:

1. What is your favourite place to holiday? I don’t really have one; I like holidaying in new places rather than one consistent place, but London was amazing and I definitely want to return. 

2. What do you dream to achieve in life? Right now, I don’t know for sure, but I definitely know I want to achieve a life that is filled with joy and brings joy to others. 

3. Do you speak any other languages, if so, what? Je parle Français. 

4. If you became a millionaire, what would you do first? Make sure it was real. No one wants to be the person who celebrates or quits their job or insults their boss only to find out the ticket wasn’t a real winner. Talk about awkward. 

5. If you were a piece of furniture, what would you be and why? Oh gosh, probably a lamp. But an antique lamp, because I absolutely love antiques, and lamps are often under-appreciated. Come on people, they light up your life– literally. What more could you want???

6. What’s your favourite sound? Wind chimes. 

7. Who would be at your dream dinner table (4 guests)? Hmm . . . J.D. Salinger, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest hemingway, and Margaret Atwood. All writers, and all mindblowing. But if I could bring a +1, it’d be Alexander McQueen. His designs were incredible. 

8. Why do you like to blog? I like to blog because it gives me a place to put all of my thoughts on everything –life, university, beauty, fashion, travel– in one place, 

9. What’s your dream job? Oh heavens, this is a toughie. Some people don’t know what they want to be when they “grow up.” I am the complete opposite; I want to be so many things.  I would love to be a lawyer, blogger, writer, vlogger,  journalist, fashion designer, seamstress, chef (graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris), and so many others.

10. What will you do next today? Well, currently I am writing this before class, so I will be taking notes on phonetics and phonology to prepare for my midterm on tuesday (yikes!!!). 

11. What’s your most happy memory? I have a few that fall under this category. Meeting my best friend. Wandering Disney Land in the rain with my mother at Christmas, running across a bridge to Tate Modern in London with my mother in the rain (somehow rainy situations force me to fight back and have fun), and then learning to sew when I was 7 with my grandparents. 

With those answered, it’s time for the grand unveiling of my 11 nominated bloggers!!!

  1. Still Life with Grad Student
  2. A Stitch to Scratch

  4. The World vs Mike James
  5. The Title I Wanted Was Already Taken 
  7. K+PLAY
  8. The Greek Foodie
  9. bargain betty me
  10. Cooking the Books

  3. Any pets???
  4. What are you good at???
