Blogger Award

It seems that my blog is doing so well, that I am actually nominated for the Blogger Award by the lovely Jessica from Product Hoochie. You should really check her blog out, you can truly get some awesome reviews about new products. Thank you Jessica you made my day 🙂

1. Answer the questions asked by the blog who followed you.
2. Nominate up to 20 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
3. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

So let’s start:

1. Where in the world are you?

I am from a small island in Europe called Malta. It is a beautiful sunny country with beautiful beaches, greenery and great night life. 

2. How do your surroundings affect your beauty habits?

I think overall Maltese women care a lot about their image and do their best to look good. I have been brought up in a family with a majority of women and they all make sure they look their best when they head out. So as the youngest, I absorbed all the beauty secrets and have always made my best to look great which in the ends helps me feel great too.

3. What is your favorite thing to blog about?

I love it when I come up with a new make-up looks to blog about. I love doing reviews of products especially when I love the product, but there is nothing better than doing a post of a cool make-up look.

4. What is your favorite song of the moment?

I have to admit recently I have been obsessed with the voice of Tom Odell. I love the song Another Love and the lyrics speak to me directly right now.

5. What do you prefer, lipstick or lip gloss?

When I was younger I would definitely say lip-gloss but now that I am older I will have to say lipstick. All that gloss looks just silly on me right now.

6. What is one lesson you learned while blogging?

That you always have to keep your viewers interested that means blogging at least 4 times a week if not everyday.

7. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

NYC BABY 🙂 yeah It has been my dream since I was a little girl, so yeah I do hope to visit someday.

8. What super power do you wish you had?

I am in between 2 powers, to either stop time and be able to have more time for myself and to do as much things as I can or be able to be at any place with a simple click, like the movie jumper (but hopefully have no one trying to kill me).

9. What do you do to relax?

I either listen to music and sing my heart out or else watch a TV show /movie.

10. Do you enjoy watching television?

Not really, I used to love watching it when I was younger, than I discovered the internet. I can watch anything I want on my laptop without having to watch any boring commercials that never end.

11. Name one thing you can live without!

Negative people that constantly try to pull you down.

Shine On- Award

Hey guys,

So this week I was nominated by the lovely Mammu from Mammu Likes. Do check her out, she is an Estonian Beauty with a sense of style and fashion tips. Thank you so much for this Award, it means I am doing something right with this blog 🙂

Basically I have to mention 7 things about myself an nominated others for this award. Well I do hope I don’t bore you to that, so here we go:

1. Well something that people don’t think when they see me, is that I was quite a tomboy when I was a kid. I used to hang out with boys, play football and had even my cut out short. I was a carefree child and didn’t care what people said about me.

2. Nowadays I still keep that tomboyish side of me when it comes to handy work. I am quite a handy person, if there something that needs fixing, I just find a way to do it. I painted my room on my own and decorated it by myself and maybe with a little help from relatives.

3. I am quite good when it comes to building things with wood. At the institute of Art and Design we had an opportunity to try a particular workshop and i chose the wood workshop.  I carved wood, used the wood turning, created a lot of designs using wood and I love it.  I learned a lot when I was working with wood which actually helps a lot when it comes to my  job as a designer in office furniture.

4. Apart from my manly side, when I was younger I used to love designing clothes. I had a bunch of sketchbooks full of designs. I used to love watching the runway shows, with my sketchbook in my hands and drawing different outfit ideas that were probably fashionable at that time.

5. When I was a student I couldn’t afford buying new clothes, I had to go by with what I had. So I used to modify my clothes, so they always looked fashionable. I would create outfits out of nothing and when I went out I made sure I always looked good. I remember once I was given an ugly dress, and with the help of my mother which used to be a seamstress, changed it into this completely different and gorgeous dress.

6. To some extent blogging is my therapy. I love blogging because it reminds me to always enjoy the thing you have in your life 🙂 to always take care of yourself and be beautiful.

7. Some of you may know this already by I have another blog called “Work in Progress” which is about my weight loss journey. If you would like, you can check it out here.
