Liebster Award

Hey, um not sure if anyone is interested but i got tagged and it's not in my nature to ignore someone being nice to me. So the lovely Anthea (thank you) nominated me for the Liebster award. Not really too sure what the deal on that is except that is seems to be a way to help out and promote new little bloggers like myself.

So apparently in order to accept the award i have to a) tell you 11 things about myself and b) answer Anthea's 11 questions and then tag 11 OTHER bloggers who have less then 200 followers.

So what the hell, why not. If you're here cos i tagged you please don't feel pressured it's just a fun way to spread the love :)

Also no, i don't really know why it's 11.

My 11 Things you Probably don't Care to know:
  1. I'm a Graphics Design Student
  2. I'm intimidated by the MAC counters at Myer
  3. I miss my cat's since they live my parents and i live with my boyfriend.
  4. I have a kitty crush on Pinecone (the kitty cat that is in some of the Elle Fowler videos)
  5. I have the body temperature of a Lizard: i am always cold even in a room full of sweating people.
  6. I don't like Twilight, or Shades of Gray or any of the tweeny-over-rated books
  7. I am however into reading Historical Fiction; perticularly about  England or France
  8. I'm a huge geek; video games, dungeons and dragons you name it
  9. There's a figure of Claptrap from Borderlands (videogame)  on my desk
  10. I only just found out today that HG product means "Holy Grail" product
  11. I'm originally from Poland.
My 11 Questions from Anthea:

1. What's your favorite color?
Red, no question.
2. Have you had a '15 minutes of fame' moment?
Does this blog count?
3. What is on your wishlist at the moment?
The 007 OPI collection and the China Glaze Safari/Duochrome collections
4. Do you have any allergies?
Yes, a single type of tree back home in Poland so not really an issue these days.
5. One piece or bikini?
one piece, please
6. What was the first CD/cassette tape you owned?
umm i think it was Aqua. Can't be 100% on that
7. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Hopefully with more then 12 followers :)
8. Favourite book?
Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches - it's like mixing historical fiction with supernatural stuff.
9. Favourite girl's name?
10. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
New Orleans
11. If you could live in any year, what would it be and why?
I'm fine with now, I'm very lucky to be where i am. That and I'm too much of a history nut to think any other time period was quite as good for us womenfolk. But if i was forced to pick let's go with something exciting but modern-ish and say around the 1920's. I like the long cigarette lighters and the cool clothes.

Here are those i choose to Tag (in no particular order):

  1. Jaztee
  2. Stubby Nubbins
  3. Lisa's Polish Addiction
  4. My Cup of Tequilla
  5. Cats-n-Nails
  6. Shrinking Wallet
  7. Makeup and Smell the Coffee
  8. Parisian Blue Skies
  9. The Cat's Claws

3) Video games yes or no?
4) Do your friends and family know about your blog?
5) How did you decide how to name your blog?
6) What's your favorite city?
7) Favorite makeup/nailpolish/skincare brand?

10) Is Seche Vita really the best top coat?
11) What is your most recommended product? (makeup or otherwise?)


  1. I love reading historical fiction books too! Have you read 'The Luxe' series and the 'Bright Young Things' series by Anna Godbersen? I loved them so much that I now own them lol. And don't worry, the MAC counters intimidate me too haha.

    1. Hmm nope haven't come across that one yet but it does sound like i will have to look into it if it garners so much love :) Thanks for the award btw

  2. Fun! I tried to comment earlier but my phone is hopeless. Its not fiction as such, but have you read 'Guernsey Literary and Potao Pie Society'? its good! I promise!

  3. YAY another nerd polish lover!! :D Sweeeeet. *following!*

  4. Thank you for my nomination. It was very unexpected and gave me a little squee with a warm and fuzzy feeling inside

    I think I can answer your questions but I am not sure about tagging other people. Does that mean I get half an award? I will have to wait until I am on the compurer. It would drive me crazy to post on my phone. :)

    1. I think it's probably okay to still get the full award, it's just trying to encourage new bloggers and the viewing-of-them :)

    2. I blogged about it this morning. :)

      Here's the link and you get an honourable mention since you were the one who nominated me and gave me some questions to answer.

  5. Awww thank you for the nomination! I will answer these questions soon :)

    1. I have answered your questions :)

  6. Thanks so much for the nomination! I will get on it ASAP!
