Nominated a Liebster Award!

Liebster Award

My gorgeous cousin Kareen, who's the editor of Ziba. nominated me for a Liebster award. Her blog is full of skin care and wellness tips. You really must check out her blog, not because I'm biased but because it is truly an informative and entertaining read. Oh I forgot to mention she blogs from Paris: The home of all things fabulous...

So what is a Liebster award? After a quick google search I found out that Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Liebster awards are given by bloggers to up and coming blogs.

So here are the Liebster Award Rules:
1) Post 11 things about yourself.
2) Answer the questions that the tagger/nominator has posted for you.
3) Create 11 questions and choose (nominate) 11 up and coming blogs and link them in the post.
4) Go to their page and tell them.

11 Things About Me.

  1.  I'm an only child. But far from the only child stereotype I'm very good at sharing :)
  2.  I can hold a tune. I love singing and have recorded a demo cd. For now I've put my musical ventures on hold but I will resume it.
  3. I have a car but can't drive. Well not legally, yet. I'm of age but I'm still on my learners. A little sad considering I was bought a car to encourage me to actually start driving. My car boot however is a wonderful storage area.
  4. I want to learn how to sew and alter clothing. I can hem my pants but I'd love to learn how to take clothes in and sew a dress.
  5. I want to own my own nail salon one day. My mother ran a small salon back in Manila and I loved interacting with everyone that came in. 
  6. I'm terribly shy. I'm often perceived as a snob because I feel uncomfortable striking up conversations with people.
  7. My motto for organisation is "Everything has a home". I'm OCD about putting things back where they belong. Everything in my room has a place.
  8. My dream destinations are London and Paris. My bestfriend plans on moving to London so I will definitely have to go to Europe to visit him.
  9. I love harry potter. In fact I've named our cars after HP characters: Serious Black, Hedwig and Professor Mcgonagall...I'm a dork I know.
  10. I love watching English period drama, there's a youtube channel by mseliflora that has a wonderful selection of them.
  11. I find the busy city inspiring. If I'm feeling down, a stroll through the Myer cosmetic counters cheer me up. If I need peace I go to St Marys Cathedral. For writing & song writing inspiration I sit by the fountain in Hyde Park - All within Sydney CBD.

Questions from Kareen:

  1. How long have you been blogging?
    My first blog post was on the 14th of September 2012: http://www.littlemissscb.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/no-sleep-make-up-how-to-fake-good.html. I had an MSN blog back in the day and a myspace back in '05.
  2. What made you start blogging in the first place?
    I wanted a creative outlet for my interest in beauty and somewhere to write about anything that I fancied.
  3. What three traits do you admire most in people?Loyalty, Kindness and Perseverance.
  4. What is your number 1 priority when purchasing beauty products? Is it the brand name, effectiveness, price, naturalness, or is it something else… ?I'm a sucker for packaging and branding. A little shallow, but it's what attracts me to a product. Having said that, I have discovered plain and lesser known beauty products that I use almost on a daily.
  5. Where is your favorite place that you have traveled?
    I'm not well travelled but my favourite place travelled is Melbourne, Australia. It has colder climate (I love the cold) and Philip Island (I love penguins).
  6. What would your perfect breakfast be like?
    Heavy and hearty. Bacon, Sausages, Eggs, Mushroom, Herbed Tomatoes and Toast.
  7. Have you ever experienced love at first sight?
    Like most girls in highschool I thought It was, but hey after 6 years we're still together so it might just be true.
  8. What was the last book that you read? Write one sentence that summarizes the entire book for you.
    Last Sacrifice - Richelle Mead. Annoyingly engaging and made me feel like a giddy school girl.
  9. Cat or dog? You only get one!
    Dog. Even though cats seem to really like me and I was almost attacked by our neighbour's German Sheppard. I one day hope to have a Pug.
  10. What do you see yourself doing five years from now?
     I'll be 30 by then, so hopefully I'm a doctor who owns a nail salon...
  11. What is the last thing that made you LAUGH SO MUCH UNTIL YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO DIE?Ross Noble is hilarious! Watch his videos on Youtube.


My questions (To be answered by the bloggers that I nominate/tag).

  1.  Three (3) words that best describe your personality.
  2.  What's your one must have beauty product?
  3.  All time favourite food.
  4.  Song that you always re-play.
  5.  When and why did you get into blogging?

  1. You can do more than "carry a tune" and you know it! I really want to learn how to sew and alter clothes too!!! Do you have a sewing machine?? And gosh the memories from your mom's nail salon!! we had soooo much fun hanging out on the roof and singing and goofing around! About your priorities when buying beauty products… you know, people don't want to admit, but branding and name often makes up a big part of their decisions!! That's wonderful that you feel that way about your bf -- don't take that for granted! <3<3<3 Thanks for all the loving support cuz. And this was so wonderful to read about you!! I'll have to come back and watch the Ross Noble video soon. *much much loves*

  2. Thanks Kareen you're too sweet. x. I do have a sewing machine but I only use it to hem pants which is kinda boring :(The salon in Manila was a lot of fun, lots of fond memories there...
    Thank you too for all the support. Keep up the great work with your blog. I love reading it! xoxo

  3. Great answers! I so get the shy snob thing. I try to be more social around new people but it can be really intimidating and then people start to think YOU'RE intimidating.

    Haha a "doctor who owns a nail salon", that'll be the first!

    1. Hi Peach,

      Thanks for checking out my answers to the Liebster Award. The whole intimidation thing probably doesn't help because I don't smile that often as well haha. As for my 5 year goal, a girl can dream right? haha...
