Get to know me! The Liebster Award.

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

This week's post will be about the Liebster Award!
Thank you so much to the lovely Franziska for the nomination  ☺️
Essentially, this award is all about giving everyone the opportunity to discover some new blogs - and I just love that! There are so many great bloggers out there to get to know!

The award is celebrated with ten personal questions and answers, and then I'll nominate other bloggers with another set of 10 questions! 
So, if you want to get to know me a bit better, read below!

Franziska's Questions for Me

1. What is your favourite makeup brand? 
Hmmm, is it bad that I'm not too sure? I only really got into makeup recently (you can thank all the Youtube Beauty Vloggers for that :P), so I'm aware of really good brands, but I'm yet to try them! My makeup collection currently has items from Nars (which so far I adore), Napoleon Perdis, Revlon, Loreal, Clarins and one bronzer from Mac. I'm getting keen to buy my first Mac lipstick soon! Hehe.

2. What's your favourite social media? 
I love Facebook for my friends and family, but I think overall I love Instagram a whole lot. It is definitely a source of daily inspiration, and if you’re like me and follow quote accounts it definitely brings some positivity into your day! It’s such a fun, interesting and visually pleasing platform.

That being said, I adore tumblr for similar, but also different reasons. Tumblr gives such freedom of expression, sheds light onto meaningful, important topics/discussions and can just be downright amusing and entertaining! 

3. What is your favourite season and why? 
So guys, I LOVE rainy weather when I am having a cosy, pyjamas, stay in bed, watch movies, hot chocolate-kinda day (doesn't that make autumn/winter sound so appealing!?!). But, I also love sunny days, and how bright and happy spring and summer can be! Apparently, I just can't make decisions! Haha. But let's be real girls, do you guys struggle with coming to terms about constantly shaving your legs when summertime hits? 1 point to winter!

4. When did you start blogging and what made you start?
This year in May - it's been about 5 months today! What made me start? Well, I am a journalism student, but you can click here to read my proper post on the reasons behind me blogging! It was time for me to try something different out ☺️

5. What would you do, if you had unlimited money?
Ahhh, if I'm being 100% honest with unlimited money my thoughts immediately turn to aiding poverty. I was so involved with social justice and am incredibly passionate about relevant and related issues. Have you guys heard of the Millennium Development Goals?

Unlimited money, used in the correct way, to complement these goals (money alone can't solve these issues though) would be incredible!

6. What is your favourite makeup item you couldn't live without?
When I started wearing makeup, eyeliner was the main thing I used - liquid or pencil - I feel like it just defines my eyes (and is super easy to clean off!). I'm a sucker for lip balms, lip glosses and lipsticks though - just a pop of colour!

7. What are you planning on doing in your future?
Previously I wouldn't really know how to answer this question too clearly, but then I did this post - and it helped give me a vision for my next 5 years! At the core though, I most definitely want to make a positive difference in people's lives, so any way that I can do that will constitute what I would want to be doing in my future ☺️

8. If you could go back in time to change something, would you? If so, what would you change? 
I'm a big believer in the idea that life happens for you, not to you. Every single little thing that has happened in my life has brought me to where I am now, given me the people I'm blessed to know, brought me to my mindset and given me goals that I want to achieve. For that reason, I wouldn't want to change anything in my past.

9. Are you a tea or a coffee person?
I will go with secret option Hot Chocolate, thank you! Haha, I enjoy having tea and green tea occasionally! I have only had coffee once in my life, it was when my friends realised I had never had it and bought it for me haha, wasn’t the biggest fan. Chai lattes are good though!

10. Are you a high street shopper or a designer shopper?
I am most definitely not a designer shopper, the unlimited money scenario doesn't really exist in real life :P  However, Gossip Girl definitely planted a serious love for designer fashion in me :P

I'm nominating the following bloggers, if they feel like doing the Liebster Award post ☺️ 
I'm aware that some of you would have done this recently, so you don't have to do it again! :P 

And if you have another blog and are reading this, I nominate you too! I would love to discover your blog and get to read a bit about you - if you do this post please comment below with a link so I can check it out!

P.S. Even if you don't have a blog, or don't want to do a full post - answer one, some or all of the questions in a comment below, would love to see the different answers! ☺️

My questions for you guys:
1. What is your favourite quote?
2. What's your favourite song (or a few favourite songs) at the moment?
3. What was the last photo you took with your phone?
4. Who was the last person who sent you a text message?
5. Has October been a good month for you so far? :)
6. Do you have any nicknames?
7. What's your favourite dessert?
8. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
9. Has there been one blogging experience or post specifically that you're really proud of?
10. How would you like to be remembered by others?

And that's that! I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know me a little better!

  3. Thanks for tagging me! I will try to get those done this week. I enjoyed reading your answers...some of those questions are tough. I am such a tea person. I drink more tea than water some days. ♡♡

    xoxoBella |

    1. Thank you, Bella! Haha that's awesome, I'm definitely getting into tea a whole lot more now - so many flavours to choose from! :)

  4. RAASHI, YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME; your questions are SO fun! I've just posted 20 facts about myself so doing this tag wouldn't be a good idea, omg. Thanks for the nomination! <3

    I don't have the money to go designer shopping, too, but god, the Chanel and Armani I would love to get my hands on... Love the answer for Hot Chocolate, hahahaha, but I'm eternally a coffee girl!

    May | THE MAYDEN

    1. Hahaha that is legitimately the first thing I thought when I saw your 20 facts post - loved it SO MUCH. Oh my goodness, yes! Chanel, Armani, Burberry, Michael Kors <3 Haha.

  5. I'm with you on the instagram love!! And I really like NARS makeup too - especially their bronzer! xxx

    1. Such a great platform! I love their stuff so far, their foundation is lovely!

  6. I didn't even realise you tagged me in this! but you hit number 3 directly on the head I absolutely adore raining cosy days and who wants to shave their legs every second day right?!
    I just followed your blog on bloglovin also! :)

    Lovely post sweet I will get onto this asap xx

    Liz | LotsofLoveLiz

    1. Yes!!! You get me Liz! Haha. Yay, can't wait to see yours! Followed back - you know I love your blog! :)

  7. Loving the new layout Raashi! It looks fab!

    We're very similar in the sense that I was too a Journalism student! And I've only been blogging for about four months! Oh and I adore Nars - Sheer Glow has to be my favourite foundation of all time! Thanks for the nomination!

    Musings & More

    1. Aww Emily, your comments just make my day! Thank you so much for noticing and liking the new layout, means so much to me :)

      Really? That's awesome! Oh I remember when I first discovered your blog and saw it was only four months old I was so inspired! The quality of your blog and following for such a short amount of time is amazing, I admire you and your blog so much Emily :)

  8. Aw, thanks so much for the nomination, girl!! You're the best. Loved reading your answers. I can't wait to do this :)


    1. You're so welcome Laura! Yay - so excited to see your answers! :)

  9. Thank you for the Nomination Raashi!
    I loved reading these facts about you! Especially how you chose a third option for the tea or coffee question, shows that you're an independent thinker :P
    I think some great brands for makeup are maybelline and Kiko (If you don't feel like spending so much money on a MAC lipstick, Kiko has some amazing ones!)
    I loved your answer for question 5!

    1. You're so welcome Rose! So happy to see your name up and about in the blogging world again! :D Haha, definitely had to make my own rules for that question :P I remember kiko from your reviews! I'm working on finding a place in Australia that sells it! :) Thank you!!! MDGs are something that we should all be more aware of for sure!

  10. Thank you so much for the nomination Raashi! So glad that I've been able to (kinda) meet you and get to know you better over our blogs! You have such an interesting life, and I always love reading what you post. I definitely agree with you on Instagram…I'm too obsessed.

    1. So glad that I found your blog and could nominate you Caroline!!! Thank you, that is such a sweet compliment! Instagram is addictive for sure! Haha.

  11. Loved reading this and getting to know you better!
    Charlotte //

  12. Thx for the nomination :D I will definitely do it :)

    I'm more of a tea person,but I still sneak an occasional hot chocolate in the evening :D
    And I'm guilty of using eyeliner every day as well haha :D I have started to bring more eyeshadows,blushes,highlighters and all that colour onto my face haha,but usually a BB cream and a nice eyeliner are my go to makeup looks :D
    (btw, I agree on the winter thing, so nice not having to shave your legs

    1. Yay!!! Can't wait to read it! Hehe, tea really is growing on me, can never go wrong with the occasional hot chocolate though! :P I just feel like eyeliner makes me feel put together enough by using just one item! I need to get into eyeshadows more now, I love blush and highlighters. Haha, right!?! Summer can be such a struggle for that reason alone!

  13. Congrats on the Liebster awards ♥

  14. Congratulations on your award! I love rainy weather as well; perhaps I wouldn't like it as much if it rained more here. Since it only happens once in a blue moon, I'm always thrilled about it. Something so happy about being cold & cozy. :]

    1. Thank you Carmen! Haha oh I can totally get that, makes it so much more exciting when it does happen :)

  15. Congratulations on the award, and what a lovely read!
    So excited now that autumn/winter is here to enjoy cosy nights in curled up with some hot chocolate too! haha

  19. Oh I have heard of this test before - I seem to remember I scored pretty highly on the 'acts of service'! It's always fun taking these types of quizzes, and comparing your results with your nearest and dearest can be fascinating! xxx

    1. I think this was meant for the other post but I can't move it over there :/ But, thank you for the comment Miranda! It really can give you insight discussing things like this with your loved ones :)
