Liebster & Versatile Blogger Awards!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while everyone! I'm still without hot water or heat so I've been staying at my boyfriend's house in Brooklyn and traveling back and forth between his home, my home and school. The trains are still somewhat messed up and there's still a gas deficit here so all this traveling takes up quite some time. Hopefully my hot water and heat will be back by the weekend and I can get into the habit of posting regularly again.

But on a happier note, I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by both Jana of BeautyLoveBooks and Becca of Sweet Fig Tree. I was also nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Jana again.

  2. Would you rather make a lot of money or do what you love? I feel like the appropriate answer would be to do what I love but living in NYC it's hard to survive if you don't make a lot of money so unfortunately I'm going to have to be realistic and say I'd rather make a lot of money.

  10. What's your favorite book and why? I don't really have a favorite book because there are so many great ones out there but one related to beauty would be Beauty Rules by Bobbi Brown because that was one of my first makeup books and it taught me a lot of what I know now.

Thanks for bearing through this long post but I'd once again like to thank the two girls who nominated me, Jana and Becca!


  1. Thank you so much!!! :)

    I also wanna go to Europe and do 1 year of studying there... even though I just moved to NZ 3 years ago :P

    1. No problem! And it would be amazing if I could study abroad in Europe, I'm looking into studying there for a semester next year.

  2. Thank you so much for the nomination!!! I love J. Crew too... I think the clothes have gotten even better in the last year or two. And if you get the chance to study or work in Europe you should definitely take it! In the past few years I've lived in Italy and England and I don't regret my decision to go abroad at all! xx

    1. It was my pleasure(: J.Crew is an amazing brand, I love how they keep things classic yet trendy at the same time. And you're so lucky to have lived in Italy and England, those are my top two places to study abroad at the moment!

  3. I think I would be a house cat too they seem like they are very content with life

    1. House cats are so lucky, they have no worries at all!

  4. Thanks for the nomination!
    I'm glad to hear you've been able to stay with your boyfriend and I hope you get hear soon! (If you haven't yet already)
    That would be so awesome to study abroad in Europe! :D

    1. You're welcome(:
      My hot water and heat came back a few days ago and I'm so happy!
      I'm really looking into studying abroad at the moment, it'd be so cool to study there for even a semester!

  5. Thanks for the award!! :)

    I posted my 7 fun facts on my FB if you want to read! :) SheisLovely Facebook

    I am the same as you! I'm Chinese but don't really speak it... thank goodness my husband does and can help me translate. lol..

    xo - Sheila

    1. No problem! I'll be sure to check out your answers(:

      And we are so alike. Luckily my boyfriend speaks Cantonese and he helps translate for me as well!

  6. Thank you for the nomination!
    I can't speak a word of Chinese either, but thank God for Canada and its mandatory bilingualism of forcing French upon us until we're 14! It all worked out in the end because my fiance is from Montreal ;-)

    It was really fun getting to know you better. I don't know why, but we all read a lot of blogs and the first time I came across yours I instantly liked it and yourself right away!

    1. That's so cool that you get to learn French in grade school! I wish something like that was implemented here in America, though I think it'd probably be hard to narrow down a language to teach.

      Thank you so much for all your support, I don't think I could ever express how much I really appreciate you taking the time to come visit my blog and comment. When I first stumbled upon your blog I was extremely impressed and made it a note to always visit your blog when I had the time. You've really inspired me to continue to work hard on this blog and I hope that one day I'll be as successful a beauty blogger as you(:

  7. congrats on your sweet awards and thanks for sharing your light with us at An Aloha Affair.

    Stopping by to say hi and how sweet it is that you joined us for An Aloha Affair last week. We are live now and are looking forward to spending the weekend mingling. I'd love it if you'd join us again.
