Liebster Award

If you follow other nail blogs you've probably seen several posts talking about the Liebster Award. The Liebster Award is given to up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers who others feel deserve some kind of recognition and support for their contribution. It's a great way to support your fellow bloggers and to spread the word about their blogs. I'd like to thank Jas from Jas's Blingtastic Nail Blog for recognising the work I put into this blog. 

In order to accept the award there's a few rules that need to be followed. Normally I think these things are a bit silly and I wouldn't put the effort in, but I see the value in helping others by spreading the word about their blogs so that they can benefit just as my blog has been benefited from being tagged on Jas' page. So here goes:

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs.

So here's 11 things about me:
1.  I'm a real girly girl, my favourite colour is pink.
2. I have an advanced diploma in fashion design and technology.
3. I always wanted to be a pop star (but what girl growing up in the 90's didn't?)
4. I don't always like to fit in. I embrace my quirkiness.
5. I tend to unintentionally develop a hatred for whatever the 'hot new trend' is. Several years ago this was gladiator sandals. This summer it will be fluro.
6. I'm studying business (majoring in marketing) and Japanese at university.
7. I very rarely listen to music sung in English. On the other hand, I do love Japanese pop music, in particular by Morning Musume. (Yes I know, I'm an embarrassment. Sorry).
8. I've never dyed my hair.
9. I have spina bifida occulta.  
10. I hate the ocean.
11. I'm an extremely paranoid person. I can't watch scary movies for this reason, or I'll be sleeping with the lights on and checking under my bed for months to come.

Here's my 11 questions from Jas: 
1. Who would you turn gay for? 
Yoshizawa Hitomi. 
2. What can you do better than anyone else?
I can fold my tongue in half (front to back) and hold it there without using my teeth. I don't know if that counts but no one else can seem to do it!
3. What is your all time fav nail polish?
This is such a hard question, but I'm going to say OPI's 'Do You Lilac It'.
4. Favourite movie of all time?
Mean Girls maybe? Or Pirates of the Caribbean? There's so many to choose from!
5. What did you do last Saturday night?
To be honest, I don't remember. It must have been exciting...
6. Where you have travelled that you loved and was an awesome place?
Japan. If you've never been to Tokyo and Yokohama you're missing out!
7. What could you eat everyday without getting sick of it?
Peanut Butter M&M's and Strawberry Fanta.
8. What are your pet peeves?
Smokers. I can't stand the smell of the smoke and I seem to be hypersensitive to it. And the sound of people chewing *shudders*. I also hate people who force their views on others.
9. What are your other hobbies?
Scrapbooking and sewing.
10. If you were stranded on a desert island what 5 things would you take?
My cat, lip balm, a big cuddly blanket, bug spray, and a giant esky of Strawberry Fanta.
11. What do most people not know about you?
I performed in the 2001 opening of the Goodwill Games.

My 11 questions for those who I've tagged:
1. What's your favourite colour?
2. Have you had a '15 minutes of fame' moment?
3. What is on your wishlist at the moment?
4. Do you have any allergies?
5. One piece or bikini?
6. What was the first CD/cassette tape you owned?
7. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
8. Favourite book?
9. Favourite girl's name?
10. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
11. If you could live in any year, what would it be and why?

Phew! Sorry if that was a bit long and boring. Hopefully you learnt a little more about me!

*Sorry for some glitches in my font and spaces where there shouldn't be spaces etc towards the end here...blogspot seems to have spazzed out on me >.<
