The Twin Liebster Blog Award

 I've received the Liebster blog award a bunch of times, but I've always shied away from answering questions that are a bit too personal. But finally when Georgia from BeautyInsideArt tagged me, I decided, um, why not? 
 So here you go. This is me, everyone. Up close and personal.

So here are the rules (quite shamelessly copy pasted from Georgia's blog):
1. Answer the 11 questions by the blogger who nominated you
2. Then say 11 random facts about yourself
3. Tag other blogs you feel worthy of the award (with less than 300 followers) and ask them 11 questions
4. Go to their blogs and let them know they've been nominated

 I'm going to answer questions from both Georgia as well as Neha from QuirkilyNormalFashioned. And then there are the eleven facts, so this post is going to be quite heavy on narcissistic writing. Let's begin!

Let's start with the facts:

1. I'm a super shy person.
2. I'm afraid of being in the dark, but I love the night.
3. I love to read, and I can read practically any genre of book (but not without getting bored).
4. Very few people in my life actually know about my blog.
5. I really want to get a tattoo. I don't like piercings much (on myself).
6. I have super curly hair but I used to hate it as a kid. Then I found the magical device ie. the straightening iron, and now I like my hair either way -curly or straight.
7. I've never had a pet.
8. I love mint chocolate.
9. I like to wear neutral coloured clothes but I find brightly coloured food massively appealing.
10. I'm addicted to YouTube videos. 
11. I have the hugest crush on Aaron Johnson that I don't think I will ever get over.

Georgia's questions:

1. What's your favourite place to shop online?
-Sadly, I'm a little too paranoid about shopping for beauty products online, but I'm working on it! I plan on making my first online purchase soon. For books and things, however, I really like Flipkart.

2. What is your favourite cosmetics brand?
-Most of my makeup is from Maybelline so I think it must be my favourite cosmetics brand. I think they're inexpensive (most of the time) and have some great products to offer!

3. What is your dream job?

-I've always wanted to work for a fashion magazine. How cool would it be to be the beauty editor for Vogue or Elle or something?

4. If you could change one thing about you, what would it be?

-I think my life would be so much easier if I weren't such a big pessimist. So yes, I'd change that.

5. Why have you started blogging?

- I fell in love with the online beauty world, and decided I wanted to be part of it. Besides, I love writing. Always have. So blogging seemed perfect!

6. TV or Cinema?

- I'd have to say T.V. (Game of Thrones, anyone?)

7. Favourite beauty product?

-I used to be a big eyeliner girl, but I've recently decided concealer is my favourite thing in the world. I like my Maybelline Lumi Touch Concealer a lot.

8. Favourite quote?
-Oh, I love quotes! I can't think of a particular favourite but this one by Oscar Wilde is what I like to keep in mind, "To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." And on a more beauty releated note, I love this one by Helen Rubinstein, "There are no ugly women, only lazy ones."

9. Favourite Season?
-The winters! Love winter colours, clothes and the mood it sets.

10. When is your birthday? How old are you?

-On the 29th of October. I am 18 years old right now.

11. What is one thing you love about yourself?

-Haha, tough one. Umm, I guess my taste in clothes? Yeah, I pick that.

Neha's Questions:

1. What is the one beauty product you swear by?
- Already answered this one. A nicely powdered concealer. 

2. What do you see trending in the world of fashion this year?
-Lots of high waisted clothes and crop tops, from the looks of it. 

3. What is your favorite hobby?
-I'll go with singing. Accompanied by guitar if I'm feeling very motivated.

4. What do you think is the most important aspect of blogging?
-Staying committed and not giving up. Also, trying to make your blog better everyday.

5. Who is your greatest inspiration?
-I don't think one single person inspires me. It's different aspects of different people that inspire me in different areas of my life.

6. Which would you prefer- Minimal or over-the-top dressing?
-To be honest, I'm quite the casual dresser. But if I were courageous enough, I'd be dressed over-the-top all the time!

7. What is your current favorite song?
-Bastille's cover of City High's What Would You Do. 

8. One movie you can watch forever?
-Mean Girls. Can anything beat that?

9. Your definition of happiness?
-That awesome, uplifting feeling in the heart when you're grateful for what you have and excited to work on what you don't.

10. One thing you believe you are really good at?
-Working in the last minute. I love to stick to schedule, but when I don't, I know I can still handle it.

My questions:

1. What's on your nails right now?
2. What is the last movie you watched?
3. If you could be part of any movie/tv series, which would it be?
4. What do you like to do to brighten a dull day?
5. Bold eyeshadow or a statement lip colour?
6. What makes you angry?
7. What are you most afraid of?
8. What is the colour scheme of your room?
9. How many languages can you speak?
10. What song describes you best?
11. If you had an unlimited flow of money for a day, what would you buy yourself (and you can't invest it in the bank or anything. No charity, either)?
