The Liebster Award

I was nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Sophie Teresa so that is what I am doing today. I really enjoy tags, so this was right up my street. Be sure to check out Sophie's blog...she recently started doing cooking posts if you're into food like moi.

The Liebster Award Rules:

The nominee must link back to the blogger who nominated them.
The nominee must state 11 facts about themselves, and then answer the 11 question provided for them by the person who nominated them. They will then nominate bloggers with less than 200 followers who they think deserve the recognition and pose 11 questions for them to answer. They must then drop by all the blogs of the bloggers they have nominated and let them know they have been nominated.

11 Facts About Myself:

1. I am currently pursuing 2 degrees and a minor at university (no life basically).

2. Dark chocolate, almonds, and Ryan Gosling are some of my favorite things.

3. I am fluent en francais after living in Toulouse for 10 months in high school.

4. I love Indian and Mexican food; the spicier, the better!

5. I used to be obsessed with cooking shows, especially the Food Network. Now I just enjoy cooking in general!

6. ... < online shopping

7. Addicted to coffee, but trying to break that habit.

8. I can't do hair. Zero patience when it comes to styling my mop.

9. I love to read. Some of my favorite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Albert Camus, and Malcolm Gladwell...and a million more.

10. I used to play lacrosse, soccer, volleyball and run track back in the day. Nowadays I have to drag myself to the gym. Fail.

11. I unfortunately am a night owl and curse myself every morning for it!

The 11 Questions I Was Given:
Side note to Sophie: Great but TOUGH questions! :)

1. Where would you most like to visit in the world?
Hmm. I have always been intrigued by Indian culture so Mumbai.

2. Favourite lipstick, brand and colour?
Favorite brand is MAC due to  the variety of finishes and colors. One of my all time favorite shades is Viva Glam Cyndi, partly because I went on an all out manhunt to find it haha.

3. Coffee or tea?
Love both coffee and green tea. Oh and chai of course!

4. What did you want to be when you were little and has it changed?
I wanted to be a traveling comedian...yes, thankfully that has changed.

5. What is your favourite meal?
You're killing me! Pad thai I could eat everyday if allowed.

6. Heels or flats?
Flats only because a) I'm already pretty tall b) Heels are not kind to my feet. Wedges are better.
7. What item would you take to a desert island?

8. If you could have dinner with four famous people who would you choose?
Dead or alive? 

9. Handbags or shoes?
Bags all the way.

10. What is your must-have perfume?
Stella by Stella McCartney.

11. Who inspires you the most?
Honestly? The hundreds of random people I meet every year. Bloggers, colleagues, acquaintances...everyone has a story to tell. I love learning about others' lives. x

Ok, my turn to nominate!

Quite a few British gals nominated...you Brits are taking over the Internet, I kid you not.

My 11 Questions:

1. What was your favorite music group/band when you were growing up?

2. If you could have any super power, what would you choose? (an oldie but a goodie question)

3. Favorite makeup to wear when you're feeling nostalgic?

4. Are you a pants or dress/skirt person?

5. What is your dream job?

6. Favorite film of all time?

7. If you had a random $100 (or your currency equivalent) to blow, what would you purchase?
