Liebster Blog Award 2014

During the past week, I'm so excited, happy, and thankful that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by 3 wonderful bloggers! Yay! 
So I would like to thank Zuza, Lisa, and Billur, and their loveliest blogs (check them out!) thank you so much for the kind nominations, and here are the questions in order respectively. :D

Zuza's questions:
1) What's your favorite model?
I'm not quite sure, but generally anything clean, simple, and lean looking...? :)

2) Your best winter memory
Walking home from the train station after the last train around 12am with a special someone singing 'Lucky' outloud, trying not to wake the neighbours, trying to beat the cold. :P

3) When you'll start your winter break?
No winter break for me! Oh the things I miss from school.

4) Favorite t-shirt ;)
This one! :) 

Either that or any grey t-shirt. I love grey on t-shirts.

5) Names of your best friends
I need to ask yet whether I can put their names here, :) for the mean time; Princess S, D, and R.

6) For how long do you blog?
Since 2011, but much more regularly since August 2013. :))

7) Do you prefer shopping online or real?
Real. Unless I have a trusted online shop where I know the fabric and sewing will be always good.

 8) Favorite actor / actress and film they played :)
Vera Farmiga from 'Up in the Air', Joan Allen that Pamela Landy from the Bourne series, Julia Stiles, from '10 Things I Hate About You', and of course the current darling, Jennifer Lawrence. Her boyfriend is not so bad either, just saying, ;) calling out Nicholas Hoult.

9) Do you dance? If yes, what is your favorite style?? ;)
Used to! And I miss it badly. I used to dance in a marching band as a part of the Colour Guard team. So what kind of dance is that? I think weird, a mixture or modern dance sometimes, with elements from jazz and ballet thrown in. Also was in a dance student club in university with mostly hip hop style.

 Lisa's questions:
1) Do you already thought in make a youtube channel?
Many times! Seriously. Not that it might be any awesome or something, I just want to make one. Soon. Pretty soon. Hopefully. :)

2) What your family think about your Blog?
Okay, ... I guess... haha, either that or they don't care enough, I haven't bothered to show them though.

3)What is your favourite quote?
Ohhh too many! Last month it was this, 'Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.', said Oscar Wilde. I feel sneered by that quote, and I kind of like that. :P

4)What makes you smile?
Babies! :)) Children, tots, without fail.

5) Best trip you ever done!
I don't do trips much, but probably the ones I have every night,... my dreams... Crazy.

6) Favorite skirt!
Very full skirt! :)) Borrowed from mum's old collections.

7) Favourite food!
Too many! Pizza, pasta, green leafy vegetables, chocolate, cheese, berries, I can go on, ... --Oh I know! The answer to that is anything I know so far, except for papayas, carrots, and melons.

8) What you think about your channel?
Haha, I just hope it's entertaining enough. I think it's cute and soothing. Or I'd like to think it that way. Something people would come home to, and watch before bed, and put them to sleep, zzz... :P

9) How do you think about yourself in 7 years?
Absolutely no idea.I never really think about the future like that. Maybe I should.

10) What are your favourite blogs?
Jackie's, Emilie's, Noor's & Areeba's, ladyfaceblog (makes me want to eat or live in my screen EVERY TIME), and this one, inmyownstyle, makes me want to get up and fix my home. Which it needs. Badly.

11) One fashion guru?
MissGlamorazzi! The first (and maybe only one?) I ever subscribed to! She makes me feel like doing my nails, hairs, and eyebrows, etc. even on my laziest days. :)

 Billur's questions:
1. If you could change the place you live , where you would want to go ?
Somewhere in Europe... maybe? Haha, never tried, so I say maybe. But definitely somewhere quaint, but definitely near to modern city and facilities and vibrant lifestyle options, with cool weather (my hair needs that, please), and good abundant food and fresh produces.

2.One song that describes you ?
Oh, gosh! Haha, too many! On the top of my mind now, well, 'The End of the World' by Skeeter Davis and 'On My Own' from Les Misérables, a scream for the hopeless romantic in me, or... 'A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes', as I'm an utter perpetual dreamer. :S Pretty badly.

3.The best movie you've ever watched.
THE BEST??? Wow, I really love watching sooo many movies, but I have a constant few favourites so far. :) I love Tim Burton's 'Big Fish', 'Mona Lisa Smile', 'La Vita è Bella', 'Amélie', 'The Blind Side', and 'Fight Club'.

4.When you open your wardrobe which colour caughts your eye ?
Depends on the time of the day or occasion; in the morning, BLACK, the blackest black ever, --after noon or for a day out, light flowery patterned ones, --for special occasions, ALWAYS white or gold. Bling!

5.What is the most important thing in your room (except your bed ) ?
My quilt. *hugs my quilt By quilt I mean a thick duvet one.

6.What color is your room , would you like to change it?
Blue! Has always been blue. :) I added some creamy ivory a few years ago, and changed the previously periwinkle blue (my favourite colour) to a very light powdery blue, which apparently is also referred to as Ghost White in Wikipedia. :S I ... hope... the name does not attract some other entity with similar quality... ...
If I ever change it again I think I'd love it to be perfectly bright white and maybe a little bit of light blue. :))

7.If you could master any instrument on earth, what would it be?
You mean musical instrument only? :D Alright, ... cello! And the guitar, and the piano, and the violin. :D

8. Ever fantasize about being in a rock band? What would your group be called?
Haha, not really, going solo though, multiple times. ;) But bands are cool, haven't think of a decent name yet though. I think I'll leave it to the group's decision. My entry would be something like, 'The Shines'. But maybe that name is patented. I just think it would be funny, remembering, 'people throw rocks at things that shines'. :P There's a Taylor Swift song is playing on my mind typing this.

9.Have you ever won an award? What was it for?
Some small competition drama trophy! :P It was a group effort of around 3 people or so, but they 'let' me take care of the trophy.

10. How long can you (comfortably) go without checking your emails or texts? How do you feel about that?
Sometimes for days, but some other time, every hour or so, and in between those hours --MISERABLE!

11. What’s your guiltiest of guilty pleasures?
This one's easy! Crunching ice and sleeping waaaay past midnight. :S Are you annoyed by ice crunchers? Ooh, and also, senselessly watching YouTube videos and obsessing over celebrities senselessly. Futile.

Phew! That was a mighty long post! :) Maybe I could've just selected either one, or either 3 or 4 questions of each, but I didn't feel that would do your questions justice. :S Also, since I don't have any proper 'About' page yet, probably this can make up for that for the time being. :)

    1. 5 words that define you! :)
    Vain, vibrant, happy, glutton and weird

    2. Why did you start blogging?
    I started a blog at around 2008-ish where all I blogged is about my boring life and idols. It's pretty lame because I was young and my language sucks and I used to Typpe Likke Tiis.. Yup, but I've removed all embarrassing posts. Haha.

    3. What is your favourite type of post (to write and read)?
    I'd read anything that is interesting. I came across this post that talked about the horror of online dating and meeting the person in real life once and I thought that it was quite hilarious the way the blogger talked about her experience. I couldn't decide on what are my favourite post to write, but I guess recently it would be fashion.

    Yeah, blogging has changed me. Remember I used to TyyPe LykK ttis? My writing style changed but I'm still constantly trying to improve myself.

    5. As of now, what do you think of your blog, and is there anything you would like to change from it? :)
    The layout! I'm not exceptionally blessed with the talents of html code. But I think my blog lacked some stuff like buttons and icons are missing.

    I really like songofstyle, garypeppervintage, mellowmayo, Chriselle Lim and recently my new favourite, Chloe Ting

    7. Do you watch YouTube? --What do you go to YouTube for?
    YES of course! I go youtube for cheats for my game, make-up tutorial, fitness, entertainment.

    8. Your current favourite song? --When you listen to it, do you listen to the music, or the lyrics?
    On rainy days by Beast (A korean boyband). I got hooked on the music first and then the lyrics.

    9. Last movie you watch and how was it?
    Oh man, I totally can't recall which movie I watch. I'm the drama kind of gal. Haha.

    10. Best kind of cake, ever!

    11. Lastly, what do you think of Valentine's Day? (Errh-- haha, sorry, kind of forced thought, but considering it's so near...)
