Liebster-Award :)

An awesome person and blogger, Lucy from It's Lily Locket, nominated me for an Liebster-Award and since I've always been thinking that doing this is so much, I decided to dedicate this my next post.

First of all, thank you so much Lucy! I feel soo soo honored!

1. Each person nominated must list 11 facts about themselves

1. When I'm tired or bored my voice tends to get veeery deep and raspy... a little bit like Harry Styles according to my friend haha
2. "Ships in The Night" by Mat Kearny is my "shower-song" because I tend to forget the time when I'm showering and my parents freaked out after the last bills. I had to give myself a kind of limit. When the song ends (after around 4 minutes) I force myself to get out.
3. I'm really good at staying up until morning but really bad at getting up.
4. I bought 10 books at a book sale 3 months ago and haven't started reading ANY of them
5. I'm a horrible story teller and give up after the half of it
6. I'm really bad at time management. Not because I wouldn't know how to be punctual but because I can't find the motivation to stand up and get ready.
7. Thanks to hay fever and a cross reaction I am basically allergic to every single fruit on earth :( Well I still can eat bananas and grapes haha
8. "Over the Love" by Florence + the Machine gives me chills ever since I've seen a "Borgias" (the TV-Show) video with it. Florence has the most impressive voice in the entire world.
9. When I concentrate on something I look very angry (I blame my eyebrows haha). People call it "the death stare"
10. I love being at airports because they get me very excited for the trip and make me feel busy.
11. "Life is beautiful" by Vega 4 has been my "theme song" during my road trip in America and stayed my theme song during all my travels that followed.

2. Answer the 11 questions set by your tagger

1. What encouraged you to start your blog?
I kind of got tired of writing my diary, however I needed to practice writing in English for my A-level exam, so I decided to start writing my blog. I've been missing creating layouts, homepages, editing pictures and being creative and doing all the things on the computer I didn't get to do since I turned 15. Writing a blog gave me the perfect opportunity to do all that and share my opinion on my favorite things, especially on music, beauty-products and clothes haha.
2. What is your favourite post that you have done?
Oh this is really difficult since I haven't posted much. I'm still waiting for a very exciting post to come, I know my blog is boring but what am I supposed to do? :D I'm giving my best I promise! but if I had to choose I guess it would be my first. I got so excited about blogging for the first time.
3. How long have you been blogging for?
I believe I've started in February, which makes it 4 months! However, I had a break for about 1-2 months during my exams.
4. What is your favourite movie?
I am very much one of these people that constantly say "I love movies" but forget every single movie they've watched as soon as this question comes up. I guess it's "The Perks of being a Wallflower"! It's an amazing adaption to the book.
5. What is your favourite fashion designer?
Salvatore Ferragamo I guess. I know he's dead but I really like how the company kept his spirit and his ideas in their concept and designs. They are timeless and classy, not excessively exaggerated but with that certain something. And for some reason I have the feeling like his brand is making a kind of come back now. Am I boring you? haha
6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Good question. Hopefully alive, healthy and happy :) I honestly have no clue what to do with myself, that's why I'm taking a gap year.
7. What is your favourite blog?
Very good question but I honestly said don't have one. I'm a person with many many interests and depending on my mood I decide on what blog I like to read the most.
8. What do you most like about blogging?
Call me a creepy person but I love typing on the computer. I really love writing up my thoughts and since I just finished school I really prefer my keyboard over my pen...On the other hand I'm pretty sure I will miss it VERY soon. But no honestly, I think it's the fact that you can share your opinions without the feeling of being watched and judged by the facebook-generation.
9. What is your favourite item of clothing?
uhm...I'm gonna cheat a little and say handbags. I don't like carrying them around unless I go on a longer trip but I love buying them the most since you don't have to try them on, ergo they are less frustrating.
10. What is your favourite thing to cook?
I love cooking anything Italian :) I love the range of spices their kitchen is based on.
11. What is your favourite city?
I'd say San Francisco is a very nice place but never will I forget how my friends were dragging me up those steep steep STEEP hills ughh. I guess it's London :)

  4. Hiiii, thanks so much for nominating me! That's so nice of you. I actually did this post a few weeks ago, but since you took the time to write out these questions, I want to answer them for you!

    1. I don't know really. Usually things I've bought and loved or if I did my nails? Nothing specific really!
    2. Maybe hauls? I don't know. My blog is sometimes all over the place ha
    3. Flowers in Your Hair by The Lumineers, but I also loooove Ships in the Night. Mat Kearney is so good!
    4. Neon nails are always fun. Bright pink or orange lips are a favorite as well
    5. I used to spend hours and hours doing it when I should've been doing homework, but now I find myself doing it less and less now that I have more free time haha
    6. I'm allergic to dairy. I'll break out in hives and get violently ill if I eat it, so I never eat ice cream :(
    7. It's just a fun place to share my love of beauty. I used to let it stress me out, but now if I want to post, I'll do it, if I don't, I won't. It has to be fun otherwise I don't want to do it
    8. Earlier today it was raining while I was in the pool and I just stayed in haha I was already wet, why not?
    9. In April. This week is my second month of blogging. I'm a blogging baby for sure
    10. I don't think I understand this question...
    11. Always always ALWAYS be nice. Kill them with kindness.

    Thanks again for nominating me!! xx
