Liebster Award Update

Hi readers!

The lovely Choi from The Choi-ful nail diary nominated me for a Liebster Award. Thank you! If you’re not following her yet go check her out. She has great swatches and lovely nail art. ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I received one a few weeks ago I will not do new nominations, but I will answer the questions from Choi’s nomination. (There are different strings of this award going around. Some have questions and others don’t.)

1. Why did you start blogging?
This all started last fall when I was planning on trying out different BB creams. I figured since I’ll be going through the trouble of ordering different brands and all, I may as well share my findings in case it could help someone else. At first I was going to do video reviews, but that idea didn’t really stick. Then in December I thought: why not start a blog? I’ve always liked giving my opinion on the things that I try so this would be perfect. And I do my nails twice a week so that gave me at least 2 posts per week, plus whatever else would fall in my hands. So here I am! ๐Ÿ™‚
2. What’s your favourite quote?
“I’m perfectly imperfect” – Unknown
3. Happiness, money, good looks and love. If you could only choose two what would it be?
This one is easy, I choose happiness and love. What else do you need? ๐Ÿ™‚
4. Favourite season and why?
This is a tough one because I love them all, I really do.
Spring: the air gets warmer, the snow is melting, grass and flowers grow, and I love the sound of shoes crunching on a sidewalk (which is nice after wearing winter boots).
Summer: warm weather, sandals, outdoor sports, enjoying the back yard, BBQing, thunderstorms.
Fall: there’s just something about the crisp air in the morning, going outside with a nice comfy long-sleeved shirt, and the changing of colours in leaves.
Winter: I love snow and bundling up in my snow suit to go outside. And tobogganing, love it!
5. Biggest pet peeve?
Hmm… This is mostly at work, but people who don’t really read their emails. Then they reply with a question that the answer was in my original email, or answer a question I asked, but it’s clear that they did not read my question because their answer makes no sense. It happens often and it drives me nuts.
6. The first three people you think of/run to whether it be good or bad times?
My husband, my brother, and my father.
7. What’s your favourite hot drink?
Tea, but my favourite favourite is jasmine tea. I love tea, here is my collection. ๐Ÿ™‚
8. One food that you wouldn’t mind eating every day?
Well, I have eggs every day for breakfast so I’m going to say eggs!
9. Your future plans?
Starting a family.
10. What’s your biggest fear?
Losing my loved ones.
11. One thing you’d change about yourself?
Get rid of my acne! :p

And here are 11 random facts about myself:

  1. I played the clarinet from 7th to 12th grade;
  2. Watching me eat lobster is quite entertaining (I eat it all!);
  3. I’m double-jointed;
  4. My first language is French (Chantal, really?); :p
  5. I used to have naturally straight hair and in my 20s it slowly changed and now it’s naturally wavy/curly;
  6. I hate the taste of dill;
  7. I’m quite shy when I don’t know someone;
  8. I used to hate pink and now it’s one of my favourite colours;
  9. I’m very quiet and people often think I’m not enjoying myself (in social environments), but I am;
  10. I love to try new restaurants;
  11. I’ve never had a cavity.

Phew! Random facts are not the easiest thing to think of!
