Liebster Award - Part 3

I was nominated this time by Hayl of { Life with Hayl }blog.
She runs a very cute lifestyle blog and is very funny.
You should definitely read some of her posts. ^^ 
Thank you for the nomination Hayl!
This is my third nomination.

For those who have not read a Liebster Award post before, it's a way to promote really awesome bloggers who have less 200 followers (usually I base it on Bloglovin'). It is also a great way to get to know the person behind the blog as well. Personally, I enjoy reading posts like these from other bloggers because you will always learn something new and, who knows, realize you share similarities.

Now with this 'award' there are some rules:
  1. Thank the blog that nominated you and link to their blog.
  2. Post eleven facts about yourself.
  3. Answer the eleven questions provided by the person who nominated you and then create an eleven question set for the next group of nominees.
  4. Choose eleven people to nominate and link them on the post. 
  5. Let your nominees know they've been tagged - and no tag backs!
  6. Nominate blogs with under 200 followers.
  7. Post a link of your reply to the blog that nominated you.
Here are 11 Facts About Me (I tried to not put repeats from other posts ^^;)
  1. The coffee I drink is the brand Pilon or Cafe La Llave. (Cuban style coffee is the best!) 
  2. When I feel like I have too much on my mind, I like to write to declutter.
  3. My least favorite food is asparagus.
  4. My favorite perfume at the moment is "Live in Love" by Oscar de la Renta.
  5. I love to go swimming because it is great exercise and relaxing.
  6. I am really bad at mental math but fabulous at using a calculator.
  7. I love sales, discounts, and free shipping. (Who doesn't? lol)
  8. I have a love for potatoes. The potato is so versatile in cooking and has so many tasty variations.
  9. The first CD (compact disc) I have ever bought was I think for the band All American Rejects and it was their very first EP. You know that band that sang that song "Swing, Swing."
  10. I think dressing pets in clothing is cute.
  11. I am starting to get into reading and watching things in the Sci-Fi genre because everything is so imaginative and sometimes gets crazy. I like how there's always a mystery to be solved in these storylines.
Here are the questions I was asked by Hayl:
1. What do you do that others find strange?
Hm...I would say that it takes me forever to figure out the perfect outfit, which includes accessories. While you know there are those who can just quickly throw on a top and throw on a bottom and off they go in 5 seconds, I (for sure) am not in that category of people.

2. What is your proudest moment?
My proudest moment so far was achieving one of my goals I set for myself to live in China for at least a portion of my life. (I realized I couldn't see myself spending the rest of my life there, which is why I came back.) I think when I told people about my plan, some were supportive and others were skeptical I could even do it. However, I got super lucky to have won a competitive scholarship and was able to study and live there for free after college.

I think life works in mysterious ways. Sometimes when you want something enough and very badly, the opportunity will appear. In my case, this is what I felt happened in relation to this. My advice for people is to never give up on your dreams no matter how hard it may seem for you to get there. Ignore the negative vibes from the unsupportive and focus on yourself and what you want. Always believe that all your hard work will pay off in the end.

3.  Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted a way to express myself visually and I really enjoy writing. I created this blog also as a place to give advice because I got tired of not finding reviews sometimes for products I am interested in purchasing. It feels nice to have something I can call my own.

4.  Do you have a favourite accent if so which one?
My favorite accent is Russian. I think it is so cool!

5.  What's your favourite genre of film?
My favorite genre is comedy mixed with action. Why not have laughs and be blown away by special effects?

6.  If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be?
This is a hard one to answer. I guess I would pick Europe but I am not sure, which country because I have yet to visit. I love it's vast and deep history, the architecture, and the scenery. It is on my bucket list to visit that part of the world.

7.  If you could meet any celebrity (dead or alive) who would it be?
It would be Edgar Allen Poe. I love his work and he has a brilliant [dark] mind.

8.  What is your favourite song and artist? (They can be different)
My favorite song is "I'm Only Happy When It Rains" by Garbage.
My favorite artist is Okgo.

9.  Do you collect anything?
Yes, I collect things with Tony Tony Chopper on them. It's a character from the manga/anime One Piece. I think all of my friends when they see this character they think of me, haha.

10.  Are you funny? What's your best joke?
I can be funny but I am not the "joke telling funny" sadly. :( It's more situational or being witty funny.

11. What is the opposite of your biggest fear?
The opposite? I think what I am least afraid of is clowns.
