Who is Liebster? I’m not exactly sure, but they have this blogging award named after them and the gorgeous Love From Tara has nominated me to be part of it. According to Tara, it’s an award for up and coming bloggers with followers under 200. That’s me! On further investigation, it seems that the Liebster Award is kind of like an online chain letter. It’s a cool way to simply link people up in the blog world and no-one really knows who started it, or where! But it’s a great idea and a bit of fun, so why not! So what happens if you get nominated?
-Each nominee must link back the person who nominated them. ☑
-Answer the 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator. ☑
-Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers. ☑
-Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer. ☑
-Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them. ☑
So basically it’s a great way to spread the word about cool, undiscovered blogs, as well as a way to promote your own! Aaaand, you get to find out more about the people behind them. Special thanks to Tara for nominating me and allowing me to get involved! Check out her blog here – it’s an insightful, witty look into her mind, along with lots of other really cool stuff so check it out! Below are my answers to Tara’s questions and the 10 blogs I’ve nominated for the award. And for those awesome bloggers, below that are my questions for you!
1. What’s one possession you can’t live without and why?
I guess this isn’t really a possession because it’s rented, but I could not live without my apartment! Everything else I could probably do without, but a roof over my head is one thing I am eternally grateful for and it’s something many people take for granted.
2. Would you rather have a rewind button for your life or a pause button?
Definitely a pause button. I never dwell on the past. Right now is a really good time for me and I wouldn’t complain at all if I spent the rest of my life in this moment, with the people around me, and with this (semi)wrinkle-free face!
3. What celebrity would you like to meet and why?
I think it would be cool to meet someone really funny, who would be a lot of fun…like Donald Glover from Community! I can totally see us drinking up and having a mad party! Haha.
4. If you were given $3million and had to spend all of it, how would you spend it?
I have to spend all of it?? How unfortunate. LOL. Well I would buy houses for all my family here in Australia and in the Philippines. Then I would give them some cash as well so they don’t have to worry about working. The rest I would spend on myself, buy a pimpin’ house near the beach or some scenic area, a car and another house for investment. So you know, basically houses. HAHA.
5. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging when I was in my teens! I had always kept diaries as a kid and when the Internet came around in like ’95, I got into making my own webpages using templates on Dreamweaver. I even learnt how to write html a little bit. LOL. Anyways, I would make these websites and make graphics and write little blogs or rants about daily stuff, tv shows I hated, movies I loved…Expressing my opinion has just always been something that I’ve done.
6. Who inspires you?
I’m definitely inspired by my best friend, Nicole. She is a super successful hair & make up artist and she is just really creative and ambitious. She achieves everything she sets her mind on. However, I’m mostly inspired by other bloggers! Reading about other people’s stories and seeing how many people out there are trying to make a difference really inspires me to do the same.
7. What’s in your handbag/purse?
My handbag is a mess! It’s probably reflective of the kind of person I am, all over the place! It’s full of random receipts and papers, lipsticks, Paw Paw lip balm (essential!), my wallet and phone (also essential) and usually there’s a bag of dried fruit or nuts because I’m always hungry! It’s always full of stuff and I can never find anything in there!
8. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I guess I would like to have the speed of Superman or The Flash! Some kind of power where I can travel long distances really quickly because I’m always waiting around for a bus and so that would totally save me time!
9. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I have always wanted to go to Egypt and see the pyramids. But right at this moment, I want to go to New York!
10. What fashion trend do you wish you could erase from the world?
Crocs is too easy isn’t it? I guess I’m not really a fan of those sneaker stilettos! So weird!
