Liebster Award

liebster award, new blogs, blogger

A little more than a week ago, I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Mary (Bring it to the Surface). “Liebster” is German for dearest, sweetheart, beloved person, darling, and the Liebster Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers to help them gain more exposure in the blogosphere. Bloggers are given a set of questions to answer about themselves to get others to know them better. I think that this is absolutely lovely and I was more than happy to do it! Here are my answers to the questions that Mary gave me:

1. What is the most beautiful place you have ever been to?

Definitely Sicily. I spent about a week on the island last Summer and fell in love. I’ve been dying to go back ever since.

2. Where is your dream trip?

Santorini, Greece – with the right person at the right time. 🙂

3. Not so secret obsession.

Make up!  I absolutely love watching beauty tutorials on YouTube (my favourite beauty guru is Lisa Eldridge) and Sephora is my ultimate happy place. I started experimenting with make up when I was 14 and my love for the art has been growing ever since.

4. London or New York?

New York! Though I don’t think this is a very fair answer considering I’ve spent more time in New York than I have in London.

5. Name your three favorite bands.

Well, I’m more of a “solo artiste” person so I don’t really have favourite bands… so I’m going to list my three favourite artistes instead! Currently, they are Kimbra, Lana Del Rey and Iggy Azalea.

6. Cinema or Music Concerts?

Music concerts! Nothing beats the thrill and the adrenaline rush that you get from concerts. Also, I get to sing and dance around at concerts – and I do those a lot.

7. Best place to live?

Oh wow, difficult question. Anywhere with good weather, artistic freedom and good food.

8. Best quality in a person?

Humour. 🙂

9. Art or Sports?

ART. This is such an awkward question cuz all my friends know how un-sporty I am… and now the blogosphere knows about it too!

10. Name your three favorite movies.

I have a lot of favourite movies but the top three I can list right now are Atonement, The Great Gatsby and Burlesque (because anything with music, dancing and sparkles = instant love).

11. Comedy or Romance?

Comedy! Romance is reserved for times when I’m feeling… romantic… but most of the time I need something to laugh to. (Or laugh at)

11 Random facts about myself

  1. I love to sing
  2. I’m a music junkie
  3. I love to dance as well – I used to attend hip hop open classes when I was younger
  4. Pizza and ice-cream are my ultimate comfort food
  5. I absolutely LOVE musicals
  6. I can wiggle my ears (not that anyone can see them but well… this is a random fact)
  7. I used to hate airplane rides
  8. I LOVE CATS, but I have never owned one

  10. I eat… a lot

    Thanks for nominating me! That means a lot! 🙂
    Here are my answers:
    1. Describe your fashion sense – I really like Scandinavian fashion style and am inspired by it. I like my outfits to be minimalistic, clean, girly a bit but still cool and casual. I like flats a lot and especially sneakers, I wear them every day because they are so comfy 🙂

    2. What inspires you? – I like reading other fashion blogs and see what other people wear. I guess most of my inspiration comes from the streets since I’m living in Finland and every single day I see incredibly beautiful and stylish people around me so that makes me want to dress myself nicely also 🙂

    3. What is your pet peeve? – When I’ve been saving my last french fries from Burger King so I can enjoy them at the end and someone just steals them and eats them from my plate… This is quite irritating 😀

    4.Do you like your peanut butter smooth or crunchy? – Definitely crunchy. Peanut butter is like a treat for me so I enjoy eating it with the filling 🙂

    5. What is your fashion/beauty staple? – Let’s say my sneakers. I wear everything with them on a daily basis. Also my DKNY bag because I love ti so much and I wear it every day as well. For beauty I would say the most important thing for me is mascara.The one that I use at the moment is from Lancome and I’m very happy with it.

    6. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? – Hmm superpower… Is “reading people” a super power? I guess if it is that would be cool to have and not be fooled by anyone anymore. That would save so much trouble 😀

    7. Are you a cat or a dog person? – 100% a dog person. I adore dogs and hate cats. Is that too extreme? 🙂

    8. If you could go back in time to live in another time period, which one would it be? – I guess 19 century. I love the sophistication and the class people had at this time. The fashion style is quite interesting also. Maybe the place is important as well, not only the time. So I guess 19 century in Western Europe would be good for me.

    9. What skill would you like to learn? – To talk freely in front of many people. I struggle every time I have to say something and everybody is staring at me. I completely forget what I’m supposed to say and every word I need. Very embarrassing situations I’ve had.

    10. Why did you start blogging? – All I’ve been doing in the last 2-3 years is to read blogs about fashion, watch youtube videos about fashion and basically being obsessed with fashion. So instead of just doing that I decided I should start my own blog and share my own inspiration and ideas about fashion. Now I have a new hobby and something to think about every single day and not being bored. I love it! 🙂

    11. What is your vision for your blog? – I really want it to become big and to be my main job in future. I love everything about being a blogger and nothing would be nicer than people liking my blog and finding it inspiring. 🙂

    Random facts:
    1. I am a professional classical pianist
    2. I love eating sweets (not very healthy tho)
    3. I like every kind of art – music, painting, acting, dancing, fashion (I consider it as an art also)…
    4. I love watching Tv-series in my free time.
    5. I am living in Helsinki and is the best thing ever
    6. I have been traveling a lot in Europe and having a great time with my job as a pianist 🙂
    7. I love being alone most of the time
    8. I am kind of lazy – don’t like doing sports 😀
    9. I am very social and can have a funny conversation with everybody. But still before the meeting I’m panicking and thinking that is gonna be a complete disaster 🙂
    10. I am very bossy
    11. I love receiving and reading comments on my blog. Makes me extremely happy 🙂
