Liebster Award!

I am completely thrilled and honored to tell you that I've been nominated for the Liebster Award by TWO fellow bloggers -- Cloudninekollektiv and Christine at First Person Shopper. It recognizes bloggers with 200 followers or less.Thank you both so, SO much. It's easy in the blogging world to get discouraged and feel like no one pays attention to all the hard work you put in, so being acknowledged in this way really made my day. :) Without further ado, here are the rules of the tag and my answers to the questions given to me. Since two people nominated me, there will be two sets of questions, which means more fun for me!

These are the rules: 

  • Answer the questions set for you 
  • Post 11 facts about yourself
  • Choose 11 new bloggers to tag 
  • Add 11 new questions 
  • Tell the bloggers they've been nominated!

Cloudninekokkektiv's questions:
  1. What has been the best moment of your life so far? == Hmm, probably my 21st birthday, which was on May 24. I saw old friends and reunited with my neice, who I hadn't seen in about 10 years. It was an emotional and wonderful day, and by far the best birthday I ever had.
  2. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about your blog? --- Happiness. I get a happy, fuzzy feeling when I think about my blog. It's fun to write, fun to read people's comments, fun to make new friends. Makeup is often the first thing I think of in the morning and the last thing I think of at night, so to take that passion and channel it into something positive and instructive has been great!
  3. List one thing that's irksome about social media? -- The unnecessary drama and gossiping.
  4. Describe one social issue that doesn't have nearly the attention it deserves? -- The decline of the elderly in the United States. Many of them can't afford good healthcare or even to live on their own, and the government doesn't do enough to help them.
  5. What is your favorite general beauty product? -- Foundation. I've always had problematic skin, so creating the illusion of a perfect face is fun for me.
  6. When shopping for beauty products, do you consider all contenders or only those with which you've got a fair amount of familiarity? -- Generally I look at brands I'm familiar with or have researched at some point. But I am open to new brands if they come highly recommended.
  7. Describe your three favorite hobbies. -- Reading, researching history, and writing.
  8. What do you often catch yourself thinking about before falling asleep at night? -- Makeup, lol. More specifically what look I want to to do the following day.
  9. What would you say is your best talent? -- Research. I'm a history major in college and I'm very good and researching different time periods and interpreting the facts I've discovered. 
  10. Share an embarrassing moment of yours and how you were able to move past it. -- When I first starting hanging out with the guy who eventually became my boyfriend, I tripped over someone else's backpack and fell on my face right in front of him! I thought I'd die of embarrassment, but it all worked out and eventually he asked me out. 
  11. When it comes to mainstream media in your locality, what do you find your attention to be focused on? -- Politics. I don't talk about it much, but I'm fascinated by politics and how they work.
Christine's Questions:

    1. What is your favourite thing about yourself? -- My eyes, definitely. They're almond shaped and deep brown and it's easy to play them up with makeup.
    1. What is currently to your right? -- My cell phone
    1. If you could live anywhere than where you live now, where would it be? -- England
    1. What makes you happy? -- Learning. I love learning about anything and everything, and try to learn from every experience.
