Today I have an award post for you :) The sweet lady over at Never naked nails nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning? Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. Yay! I am so thankful for that!
So here are her questions and my answers:
1.What is your blog about, and why?
My blog could be called a nail art book; I just post pictures of my NOTDs, my thoughts and comments, and some occasional off-topic chat. This is all about sharing. I don't want to become the slave of my blog, I just want it to be the means through which I share what I love to do. I recently discovered it is also the way of getting to know at least one side of a lot of interesting people out there who are really supportive, and that's what is most rewarding to me.
2.How old are you? This mostly applies to how old you feel.
The civil register says I am 23 years old. For some things, I feel I am much older; circumstances in life have made me grow too fast, too responsible. But I don't know if I can give an age to that part of me. Some people won't get to live my experiences in a lifetime. And when I am truly me, which applies mostly when I am with The Boyfriend, I can be a 6 year old. Playful and with a seriousness rate close to zero.
3.Would you please tell me a short story of the last time you really really had some absolute fun in your life?
I'd define the absolute fun just as the unlimited, unbound fun. And I'm constantly on it, I'd say at least once a weekend. I love to do little pillow wars with The One, it's just so fun! And I believe it helps me release some stress, I truly do.
4.Where are your favorite places to shop, and what are your favorite brands of things to buy?
Well I'd say eBay! I don't need to move, I just need my visa, a computer and wifi. How fabulous is that? Now, I'll confess some recurrent thoughts I have: (at work) "Damn, I nailed those Articles of Association; I need to buy some polish" / "I can't see the end of this due diligence. I'm going to buy some striping tape". (at home) "I need some dress to match my future pair of shoes; choose-the-brand.com" / "I don't want to do the dishes. eBay here I come". Is it bad, doctor?
As for the brands, I really don't care that much. And I'd rather not make free advertisement here :p
5.Do you have any crafty hobbies, or something you're just good at?
I write. I've always needed to write down memories, worries and thoughts; I started in a really early stage, and I keep doing it now. And I'm in the middle of a novel now. But hey, that doesn't mean anything. Anyone can write a novel nowadays, AND get published.
6.What did you expect to be doing at this time, five years ago?
The plan was that I'd be doing my master in Paris, and I finally postponed it to work in this law firm I'm in actually. I still think it was the right thing to do, which is a great thing.
7.If you use youtube, what types of videos do you watch the most?
Lana del Rey. No doubt. I think I'm totally virtually stalking her... The official clips of Born to Die and Blue Jeans, and a new video I discovered which is a semi live of Video Games she sings with stunning blue nails and a guy playing piano (please note my priorities in listing).
8.What is the song(s) that you must play full blast, windows down, belting it out, don't nobody better get in your way, driving down the road?
Man, I truly thought about skipping this answer. I'm about to bring shame on me for all eternity. I mostly listen to rubbish music (no offence for those who listen the same as me). It's just that music really influence my mood and I NEED to listen to danceable and singable songs. So, big confession. Hit me baby one more time (I do a Singstar every time) reminds me of my adolescence and I just love to sing it. As a more recent major hit in my shit list of songs I adore: Shakira's I'm addicted to you.
Yeah. Shame on me.
10.Best day ever?
I'll answer with my best summer ever. Last summer. I had finised University. I had my job starting in September. I had an amazingly big flat just for me. No parents. Just freedom. Legendary.
11.Who taught you to do something you really like doing?
My grandfather made me a decaffeinated coffe (which was mostly milk) in secret when I was around six. I still remember that as it was yesterday. I was in awe for I thought I entered the world of adults (how innocent of me) and I had so much complicity and love for that man that it made altogether a memory I will treasure all my life. I love to prepare myself a cup of milk, with two teaspoons of sugar and the perfect amount of soluble coffe, just like that day.
