The Liebster Award!

Hi guys!
I was tagged by Bec @ Nail Gun XS for an award! :) I've seen things like this before but didn't really know what it was. But Bec posted a little description about the award so now I'm in the know. ;)
Thanks heaps for choosing me Bec! :) So nice of you. :D Thanks to everyone else who also reads my blog too! I've been blogging for a couple months now and it's really fun! I'm sorry if I forget to blog every now and then or I don't have time. I'll have to get in the habit of having some posts ready on the side for if I'm too busy to post something new. :)

"The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I have a tendency to Google everything so I just had to look up what Liebster meant. Liebster is the German word for sweetheart, dearest, favorite, beloved. So I guess this is for your favorite new blog!"

Official Rules!

1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs.

11 Things About Myself:

1. I'm the oldest of 5 children in my family, I'm almost 19 and a half, and my youngest brother just turned 7.

2. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life, career-wise. Or any other aspect either. When I was in high school, I had no desire to go to university or TAFE, or do any further study. I hate when people ask me what I do and I have to tell them "nothing", but oh well. Not everyone discovers what they want to do at the age of 16.

3. I'm currently a youth group and Sunday school leader.

4. I wear makeup about twice a week, maximum. Sometimes I don't wear it at all in a week. When I do, I only wear concealer and occasionally foundation or tinted moisturiser/BB cream, powder, sometimes blush, and mascara. I VERY rarely wear eyeshadow mainly because I don't own many and I suck at applying it.

5. I'm extremely shy and awkward. I love making friends online because I find it hard to make friends in real life. :( It kinda sucks but I love all the great people I've met online. :) To be honest, it's so much fun to make friends online because it's much easier to find people with common interests to you! And it's so fun to talk to people all around the world. :)

6. I LOVE superhero movies! The (Christian Bale) Batman movies are AWESOME. :D I also love the Transformers movies a lot!

7. My favourite singer of all time is Delta Goodrem. I've loved her since I was 9 years old and she was my role model when I was little. I still look up to her a lot. She's been through so much in her life and she's so strong! She's very inspirational. :) I had the absolute pleasure of meeting her in June at the Voice finale. I was crying and shaking on the red carpet and she hugged me. :) Most exciting moment ever! I blogged a little about that here so you can read more about that if you'd like! :D

8. My favourite animals are puppies. I loooove super tiny dogs, I think they are SOOO cute! :D I don't have a dog, but I really want one someday. I have a cat named Sooty, I got him when I was 8! :)

9. And to go along with the dog theme, I've always been scared of big dogs. Mainly when I was little but they still freak me out a little bit. When I was younger I was super short so big dogs always scared me, especially when they'd jump up on me. :/ It still scares me a little when they do that, LOL. I guess I'm just not used to having dogs.

10. My favourite foods are (beware - they're mostly junk foods :/) cupcakes, cinnamon donuts, chicken parmigiana (I always order it when I go out, even if it's not the most "ladylike" thing to order!), gnocchi... And more. I'm making myself hungry typing this. :(

11. My number one place I need to go in the world is the USA. I need to go to Disneyland/world. I forget which is which. But omg. I've dreamed of going there my whole life. I think I'd probably cry walking inside. :/ And if I saw the castle, I'd bawl my eyes out. HAHA. Disney freak. Also I need to go on a huge polish buying spree in the US. ;)

11 Questions Bec Asked Me:

1. How did you start blogging?
I started blogging almost two months ago. I LOVE reading other nail polish and nail art addicts' blogs so I thought it'd be fun for me to start one too! Also I'm very interested in web design and I like graphic design too so having a blog I get to do some of that too.

2. Where do you live?
South Australia. :)

3. If you were stuck on an island what are the top five things you need?

  • Nail polish ;)
  • Nail polish remover
  • Coca Cola. I'm a bit of an addict. :/ Lmao, Bec said almost the same thing.
  • Cuticle oil. LOL. I love the stuff. <3
  • My boyfriend. :) 

4. What's your favourite nail polish finish?
Creme. Or glitter. :)

5. How many bottles of polish do you own?
Around 150 I believe.
6. If you could have a super power what would it be?
Super nail art skill. ;) HA.

7. What are your hobbies other than blogging?
I love crafts! I've always been pretty crafty and creative. I also really used to enjoy writing when I was in school. I wrote tooooons of stories and things like that. Maybe that's why I like blogging. :) I also enjoy baking and cooking! Though I don't do that super often. Oh, of course doing my nails is a hobby right?

8. What is something you love, but everyone else hates?
Uhhhhhh. Good question. I like Justin Bieber (ooooo now half the people reading this will probably exit!) and I only have like two friends who like him... That's all I can think of. x)

9. What trends do you hate?
Where do I begin. Tights/leggings as pants. Unless it's for working out, or if your top covers your butt, then it's okay. I wear them as pants occasionally, but I'd never wear them out in public. :/ I'm also not really a fan of patterned jeans, but some people can pull it off. Oh and those "booty shorts". YOUR BUTT HANGING OUT THE BACK OF YOUR SHORTS IS NOT ATTRACTIVE. As for nail trends that I don't like, I HATE the caviar/fish egg manicure trend. I think it looks gross. :/ I'd hate my nails to be all bumpy like that! Hope that didn't offend anyone. x)

10. If you won a million dollars what would you do with it?
Buy a car... Then get my license. HAHA. And one for my boyfriend too. :) Buy a house/apartment and move out! Then I'd buy every polish on my wishlist (it's HUGE). :D

11. What are your pet peeves?
Hmm. All that comes to mind is my nail pet peeves... Flooded cuticles, polish all over the skin, dry cuticles (though sometimes I do forget to moisturise too). I can't think of anything other than my nail pet peeves... Edit: OH I JUST REMEMBERED. I CAN'T STAND spelling errors!!!!! It drives me insane. And when people correct my spelling with words like "organisation, favourite, realise, colour" because those are the Australian/UK English way of spelling those words! That just really gets on my nerves, but I guess some people just don't know that so I can't be too mean. x)

Oh yes!!! The Booty shorts. I thought the idea of clothing was to cover your private parts.
