Liebster Award!

Starting this blog a couple months ago, I didn’t really think of doing much with it. Honestly, I just wanted a place where I could be my weirdest self, to boost up my self-esteem and confidence, and not worry about what other people thought of me. Thank you Zllvs for nominating me for this blog. I enjoy reading her posts about skincare and beauty – they’re extremely insightful and well-researched and I really learnt a lot from her blog! As well as other blogs as well. I’m still quite new and trying to figure out what my style of writing, posting, blogging is – so I feel really grateful to be nominated for this award. As someone with low self confidence, this blog really helped me be able to spark conversation with others, be less shy. It may not seem like it but every like, comment, view, really means a lot to me because it makes me happy to know that my blog might be useful to people out there.

Rules for the Liebster Award:

  • Post 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer 11 questions from your nominator.
  • Nominate 11 other blogs with under 200 followers and ask them 11 questions (let them know you nominated them, tag them in your post or tell them in some way!)

Whew, I’ve never done one of these before – so I hope I’m interesting enough eep for you to want to be friends with me still!

  1. I am a drama, TV show, anime junkie. Netflix, Crunchyroll, Dramafever, KDrama, JDrama, you name it – I may or may not have already heard or seen it. I’m currently going through a KDrama phase (they are doing a stellar job this year btw), I’m watching – W, Cinderella and Four Knights, Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Scarlet Heart (school just started and I’m watching 4 different dramas..I don’t know what I’m doing with my life…)
  2. I love ORANGE. and by love I mean LOVE. Both the fruit and the colour. I own orange shirts, pants, socks, backpack, shoes, purse, etc. BUT I will never coordinate my clothes so that I’m an orange :s
  3. Old school is my favourite style of fashion. I like tucking my shirt into my jeans, I like the bright neon coloured crew necks, turtle necks. Funky glasses.
  4. Looks can be deceiving. My favourite genre of music is rap, hiphop and RnB. Some of my favourite artists are Nas, JCole and Kendrick Lamar. A lot of people think I’m a pop song kinda girl – well, they’re not entirely wrong, but rap is still my all-time favourite.
  5. I have a fear of public speaking, or talking in front of large crowds. I get anxious, my pulse is twice is fast, and I get butterflies. People say to fake it til you make it, but I find that hard still. When I “fake” it, my face starts twitching from being nervous and anxious. If anyone knows or has any tips.. please let me know in the comments section I really appreciate it!
  6. No one can push me around as much as my cat does. I let her get away with anything, and it’s gotten really bad. She comes to me when she knows that she can get me to do something she wants me to do. If I don’t do it for her, she gets mad and ignores me. She’s such a drama queen, but I love her anyways.
  7. I eat fish eyes – sounds gross, but they actually taste kinda good! Plus they’re good for you.
  8. I have trust issues – I find it really hard to trust a lot of people nowadays, especially at school (I’m currently studying Commerce!). Not everyone is like this, but a lot of them really only approach you to get what they want. If you need their help they won’t help you out.
  9. My room is never organised to the way I want it to be. I have way too much stuff.
  10. I still collect stuffed animals. They’re so cute!
  11. It sounds so silly, but I get incredibly happy when even 1 or 2 people are reading my blog, or someone leaves a comment on a post! I’m considering to make a YouTube channel, but there’s so many people doing it right now that I’m hesitating on starting it because it’ll be hard to break into that market. ><

MY 11 ANSWERS TO ZLLVS’ QUESTIONS

  1. What is your most beloved memory?
    My most beloved memory is the first day we brought my cat home from my friends house! I still remember how my cat’s mum kept holding onto my cat, and it made me really sad to be separating them like that.
  2. When did you start your very first blog and why?
    I started my very very first blog when I was around 12? I wanted to use it as an online diary, to post things that I would want to remember – but I was extremely bad at committing to it, so there would only be one or two posts, and then the year after I would make another post.
  3. Favorite movie, book and song?
    My favourite movie: The Shawshank Redemption
    Favourite book: Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
    Favourite song: I have a lot!! but to name one – “Sunday Candy” by Chance the Rapper
  4. What is the best out of blogging that has ever happened to you?
    Getting to know the AB Community. They are incredibly kind people who are willing to help you! My first time interacting with them was on Reddit, and I realized there are a lot of people out there with great tips and it’s a great sharing community.
  5. Do you think life change our views regarding friendship?
    Yes, I think as we grow older we tend to have a different perspective on who we would want as friends, and what kind of traits that we would want our friends to have.
  6. What blog is your favorite and why? You can share it here
    My favourite blog is a YouTuber: MeeJMuse. (she’s super awesome! I love her tips ; u ; )
  7. Do you write on other blogs? You can mention them here if you want.
    Nope! Only this one
  8. What is your favorite place to blog? Your ideal place
    My ideal place would be somewhere on the beach – that has internet haha, or a resort! But right now I do all my blogging at home :)
  9. Are you on Bloglovin? What is your handle?
    Here is my handle! I’ve never used Bloglovin’ before so I’m still trying to get the hang of it!
  10. What is your dream trip?
    My dream trip would be to travel all over Asia! Especially Korea haha
  11. Have you planned what you want to do this weekend? Share your thoughts if you like.
    This weekend, I’m going to see Drake! Well actually – it’s tonight! And then tomorrow, I’ll be catching up with my studies haha

    • Aw you’re welcome – I think your blog is really awesome and your posts are so diverse and interesting to read ! Thank you ;u; that means so much to me!!

      • Btw, I never would’ve guessed you were shy or had low self-esteem. (I can totally relate, especially about speaking in public.) You’re so cute in your photo! And I LOVED W, and can’t wait to start Moonlight!

      • Haha yeah I think sometimes it’s a lot easier to express myself in the words that I type, and a lot harder when I’m trying in person for some reason. But this blog really helped me a lot with my confidence ! Omg W was soooo gooood !! Moonlight too!! Plus the actors are so cute hehe

  1. Oh, Dear Juju, I have enjoyed so much reading this post! In fact, I’m still enjoying it. I want to answer:
    1. I am Sure your youtube channel would be fantastic. First of all, everyone feels awkward in the beginning, especially when being filmed. I want to do it too, and I know eventually I will, but I need confidence. In the beginning, videos show the person is feeling shy or insecure. Later on, they start feeling more at ease and get accustomed to being filmed and appearing in the public eye. I am sure, with all the great reviews you write, you have many products to show to the world and with your opinions, comments, etc. So, I would love one day to subscribe to your videos! :D
    2. Wow, if you love rap and Netflix…. have you watched the tv series by Netflix called The Down Get??? If not… run and watch it! It’s about how rap started in NY in the 70s. I loved it, I watched it with my husband and re-watched again! And there are more episodes to come. I just enjoyed it a lot.
    3. Shyness can be such a virtue as well. But I understand you. I think once you are surrounded by the people you really trust, and even if they are virtual trusted people, who let you be yourself and enjoy your true self, you will start feeling more comfortable. But I would say right now: Trust above all yourself, and your possibilities as the person you are. You write very interesting blog posts. I enjoy reading them. Like me, many other people do, so it is something that not all the people you don’t trust can do, so think about it. Once someone told me: “In order to never feel shy in public when you speak, imagine the crowd completely naked, except for you.” It will bring you a lot of self-reassurance. And it is awkward but true in the end :)
    4. I’m glad you are a cat lover. I have three cats and they are sweet but each has its own personality. The girl is the Queen of the house:)
    5. Wow, The Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorite movies too! As for Reddit, I also kind of started there regarding Korean Skincare. Then I got hooked to Reddit and then… blogging!
    6. Added you to my Bloglovin :)
    7. Oh, the beach, my favorite place as well!

    Thanks for nominating me. I will reply to this as soon as I find the right time.
    I just sent you an email regarding the Giveaway that you won.

    Hugs,
    zllvs

    • Thank you for your kind words ! It actually means a lot to me and I’m really glad to hear your comments and thoughts because it gives me a different perspective to look at!

      Omgosh ! I’m hoping to get another cat, but my current one acts like a major princess and doesn’t really like other cats haha which is okay! I think I might have to get more when they’re younger so it’s easier for them to be friends.

      Thanks for the add on bloglivin! I’m still trying to figure out how to fix my button haha

      • I just fed a third cat! LOL. but my husband will complain if I have three cats. We already have too. But I can keep the third one on a room I have next to the garden. Poor babies. I love cats. I am glad you liked my comment. Sorry, I did not post much lately , I was quite busy. I will though this week. Hugs Dear!
