The Liebster award

I can’t believe I’m writing this post, my first blog award! :))))) It was given to me by lovely moonchild :) And what does Liebster mean? Liebster is a German word and it means dearest, kindest, nicest, sweetest, fondest, beloved, lovely, pleasant, valued. How sweet!! :)))
Liebster-Award
So, here are the rules:

"The Liebster Award is for bloggers with under 300 Followers and the Rules of the Award are that the nominee must link back to whoever awarded them, write 11 Random Facts about themselves, answer 11 question from the award giver and then nominate another 11 bloggers and make up 11 questions for them to answer. It's a great way for new and undiscovered bloggers to meet new people, get more followers and find some blogs that they want to follow."

Since I’m at home right now, bedridden with flu, I finally have the time to properly answer the questions and prepare new ones :) Here it goes…

11 random facts about myself:

  1. One thing I absolutely cannot live without is music. I listen to all sorts of genres, from a capella to brutal death metal and all in between. My playlist has to have everything on it because I never know the mood I’ll be in. When it comes to genres it’s more about which one I prefer more and which one I prefer less, or just specific songs that get on my nerves :D
  2. The other thing I really cannot live without (and it’s connected with the matter above) is singing. I’ve been singing and performing all my life, I have some video footage of my early life performances as a child that I don’t remember happening because I was too little :) That feeling of being on stage watched by thousands and doing something you really enjoy doing and people liking it… such awesome exchange of energies, it’s soooo amazing :)))
  3. I too looooove watching TV series such as Gilmore Girls, 3rd Rock From The Sun, Sex And The City, The Big Bang Theory, Grey’s Anatomy, Dexter, Family Guy, Gossip Girl, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Top Gear… too many to name them all…
  4. I don’t like fantasy that much. I didn’t share the excitement of The Lord of The Rings (I’ve watched all movies and I think they were well made, but not something I would watch again), I haven’t watched a single episode of Game of Thrones, I’m not intrigued by Twilight and Once Upon A Time does nothing for me. On the other hand I have read and enjoyed books by Terry Pratchett – the way this guy writes is so witty and intelligent, I’m glad my friends persuaded me to read him (even though it IS fantasy) :)
  5. I also don’t like horrors. They keep haunting me long after I’ve seen them (I’m talking about movies such as Paranormal – I was too afraid to watch it), I liked Final Destination II though, it wasn’t scary at all and the effects were really cool and explicit. :)
  6. I always had a fascination with witches :))) They are totally awesome, and I love (black) cats :))) I love Halloween too with all the haunted houses and bats motives :)
  7. My obsession with polishes was on and off since my teenage years (btw I have a video footage of my nails being painted red by a grandma figure when I was 3 I think :D it was a very rare occasion, my nails were otherwise bare all the time). My cousin once gave me a load of polishes she didn’t like color wise and I was extremely happy but I was also buying them myself. The problem all these years was they were those really cheap low quality polishes and it wasn’t as much fun dealing with those as it is now with cheap better quality ones :) This last phase of addiction worsened with Essence Twilight Vampire’s Love – then I discovered beauty blogs and my stash quadrupled in a year and a half…
  8. Before hoarding polishes I used to hoard pens, markers, post it’s and paper of all colors. After college I don’t need this stuff anymore so now it’s just filling my drawers. I would love to use that stuff again, but I’ve got nothing to use it for…
  9. I have a soft spot for family and family ties, it’s very very important to me that the relationships are good (sometimes though they are not, and one cannot choose his own family). It is something I am willing to work on all the time.
  10. I love accents and I love languages. I am fluent in English and I can speak some Serbian/Croatian (I am not very good at distinguishing the difference all the time though :/) but I’ve learnt German and Spanish as well. The problem is I’ve forgotten most of German and Spanish that I knew because I don’t use it… I still remember some things, I mostly understand it, but I can’t put a sentence together without grammatical mistakes (and I regret that).
  11. I get annoyed when girls treat guys unfairly, being “typically” women. I don’t know how to explain this, but I remember a scene from a movie I saw for Christmas – Letters to Santa (IMDb) where a family was driving in a car and the father didn’t want to disclose the surprise where they were going, the mom got fed up and started grabbing the wheel (??) which resulted them going off road into the woods crashing. And then she had the nerve to yell at him saying “Look what you have done!” – I mean??? Oh and when the guy is supposed to “know” what bothers her when she is moody, she is not going to tell him. But likewise, I hate the guys’ games towards women, for example, he messes up, she gets mad at him, he gets mad at her for being mad and turns it around?? Come on, let’s just grow up and talk it out!

BTW – You should really check out Letters to St. Nicholas if you haven’t already! ;) 


My answers to moonchild’s questions:

  1. If you had to pick only one, which would you choose - fashionable clothing, makeup or nail polish?
    Even though this is hard to choose, I would pick makeup. Yeah I’ve only been writing about polishes, but it’s much easier to photograph hands than face. When it comes to clothes I am clueless.
  2. Do you have a "top of them all" beauty product that you recommend to everybody?
    I would say Eveline liquid eyeliner. The best and most precise I’ve ever had.
  3. Bold eyes of bold lips?
    Bold eyes, definitely. I think my eyes are a great asset to my face and I’ve had some special reactions after the notion of my eyes in the past from girls and guys both (and not necessarily in a flirtatious way ;))
  4. Nail art or plain nail polish?
    Gosh, do I have to choose? I don’t know, the time pressures me to have a plain polish (maybe layered or accented), so if I had to choose, I would say that, but as soon as I have a chance I want some nail art as well! (is that an answer now?)
  5. Your favorite movie(s)/TV show(s)?
    I’ve listed some up higher in this post :P
  6. Do you switch perfumes with season? Tell me some of your favorites!
    I wear heavier perfumes in winter, but they have no name – either they were bought in Turkey/Egipt or are just some wierd perfumes you can’t really buy in our stores. Spring and summer hold lighter perfumes, more flowery. From the ones you can buy in every drugstore I really like Naomi Campbell’s Naomagic, I loved Exult but it got discontinued or something, and I really like Fiorucci Perfume, it is very very sweet and very special (I don’t like every sweet and strong perfume).
  7. If you could change one thing about yourself in a heartbeat, just like that, what would it be?
    To get rid of fear of pain. It affects my life in a way that is incomprehensible, it limits me every day.
  8. What do you think could make your blog even better?
    Posting more regularly for sure :D The more you do it, the better you get :)
  9. What's the best thing that's happened to you so far - blog wise?
    I’d say getting to know the blog community, you girls are fantastic :) And companies wanting your 2 cents about a product, wow, that’s cool too, I’m honored. ^ ^
  10. If you could speak any language in the world, which would it be?
    All of them! I love languages as I’ve said before, but not using them makes me forget even the ones I somewhat knew…
  11. Do you have any big plans for you future (life, blog... anything wise)?
    I hope to go to USA on tour soon – fingers crossed that it happens for me too :)
