Liebster Award Nomination

4:03 AM

Oh dear, it's absolutely good to be back!! (not like I got lost for a months or something..) It's disappointing how I ruined my streak of consistent blogging due to some circumstances, but it's all good. So the Liebster award, YAY! I got this nomination last week from Almera from 'almeratalks' and I was so excited to be actually part of this, this kind off assured me that I was really a part of this blogging family. (Awwe group hug!)

From what I've read, the "Liebster Award" is like a chainletter in the world of bloggers. This award is being passed on to bring the blogging community together. I think this is a great idea! Whoever thought of this, kudos to you!

What do I do if I get nominated? You will be asked to answer 11 questions by the blogger who nominated you and of course share your answers via blog post. You will need to nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 questions of your choice as well.

11 Facts about me

1. I can't last a day without reading ANYTHING. If by chance I do not have any new books or ebooks to read, I go on the trusty Wattpad app just to read at least something. But to be clear, I also carefully choose which stories to read and might I add not every one of them is that bad at all. 

2. 70 percent of the time, I HATE Mayonnaise. If it's thoroughly mixed in and I can't seem to taste it anymore, then it's fine. Lol

3. I'm an only child. It gets lonely sometimes, but since I'm an introvert, I'm pretty used to being alone.

4. I just recently graduated college with latin honors. (Cum laude) WOOP WOOP! (Sorry I still get really excited when I keep thinking about it. Surreal!)

5. I dance. I've been a part of the Ateneo Blue Vigors for 3 years, the official dance troupe of our University. Now an alumni of course. 

6. I've been known for loving the color Pink a little too much. Although I've toned it down a bit, but if you saw my room, you'd get what I mean.

7. If you asked me to choose, I'd speak in Chavacano rather than in Tagalog/Filipino any day. (long story)

8. I do my own makeup for important events like weddings, graduation, and parties. Always best to save money, if I do say so myself. 

9. I'm socially awkward. Not even joking. I sometimes panic in my head when meeting someone new or seeing someone I'm supposed to make a conversation with. I have a difficult time opening up conversations and continuing small talk. I'd rather not speak than say something I'd regret.

10. I hate having naps in the afternoon, it hurts my head. 

11. I've been dating my first boyfriend for 6 years and 2 months now. High school sweetheart? Yes. Only "boy" in my life actually; my only fling, my only ka-MU, my only suitor plus he's my best friend. Goals, I tell you. *insert multiple heart emojis

Here are the questions Almera asked me,

1. Why do you blog? 
I've always been a fan of our famous local fashion bloggers since before. I've stalked them days on end with awe because of the prettiest photos they produce. They had so much knowledge in fashion and since I've always wanted a career in fashion, I thought this would be a great opportunity to start my dreams. Plus I've been posting #OOTDs in my instagram since God knows when and I've always wanted to showcase them in a better manner, thus doing style posts. 

2. What encouraged you to start blogging?
Actually it is "who", these are my friends that keep telling me to start a blog because they knew how much I loved fashion and they see me dressing up in school and they would comment "Wow OOTD man talaga!" Plus I've always vowed to myself that the moment I would get to own a nice camera, I would start blogging. And poof the rest is history.  

3. What's your favorite book?
If you ask me which series of books I love, it's actually the whole set of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. BUT if I had to choose one lone book, it would have to be Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. FEELS I TELL YOU FEELS!!

4. Movie: Romance, Action or Comedy?
Romance, no doubt about it. I'm a big cheeseball and I love anything romantic. Although I love comedies as well, but I'd choose romance over it any day.

5. Rain. Love it or Hate it?
I don't like it very much especially if I have to be somewhere important. But I love it if I had to stay home and probably read a good book. 

6. What is your dream place to visit?
Mykonos, Greece just like what I've said in my previous post here. It seems like the perfect place to relax and not worry about your problems. But of course, I'd really want to visit the whole of Europe, okay so maybe not the entire continent but you get my idea. Paris, Rome, Spain. Yes please!

7. What genre of music do you like?
I like the Acoustic type, if that's a genre. In totality I love Pop Ballads, they are by far my fave.

8. What is your favorite past time?
Reading and watching Youtube videos. If I'm out of town, then SHOPPING it is.

9. Who inspires you the most?
My Daddy is the one that inspires me the most. I mean, I love you so much Mom (I know you're reading this as usual), but seeing as how my dad is as a person, very honest, God-fearing, understanding, good willed, humorous, hard working and kind, he is my definition of perfection and greatness. 

10. Do you ever get “writer’s block,” and, if so, how do you deal with it?
Yes I do actually, well first I go on and search of things to write about. Or just give me a moment to collect my thoughts. It helps.

11. Describe your blog in one word.
Real. Of course we're all aware that there are some blogs that aren't blogging truthfully because of sponsorships, business opportunities and the like. And because of that I don't want it to be the same on my blog. I mean, it would be cool to get a few sponsorship deals here and there, but if it were done with the help of lies and untruthful marketing strategies then I'm out. I would like to be as real as possible when posting content for my readers and fellow bloggers.
