The Liebster Blog Award

I am so flattered to have been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by the stunning Nikki from Heaven Has Cupcakes! She is seriously so sweet and literally has made my day and blogging life! :)

For those of you who don't know what the Liebster Blog Award is, it's basically a nomination from someone who loves your blog and wants to show it some love. The blogs that can be nominated for this award are seen as being the up-and-coming blogs and they must have less than 200 subscribers.
As a nominated blogger, I have to do a couple things:
  • Reveal 11 random things about myself
  • Answer 11 questions that the person who nominated me has set
  • Create 11 new questions for my nominees
  • Tag 9 other blogs with less than 200 followers & let them know they've been tag backs!
Here are my 11 random facts:

1. I speak/understand 5 languages: English, French, Spanish, Polish, and Slovenian.
2. I hate scary movies!
3. I am pretty shy in real life, that's why I enjoy blogging so's my social escape ;)
4. I am constantly snacking...I get hungry super fast!
5. I have an addiction to YouTube beauty videos :S...I spend hours a day watching them!
6. I am 5'8 and have learned to embrace my height.
7. I can't apply liquid liner properly no matter how hard I try.
8. I love penguins! They are so adorable!
9. I've always wanted to go to Switzerland and visit the Matter Horn!
10. I love Christmas commercials...many people get annoyed by them but they just always lift my spirit!
11. I love country music!

Here are my answers to Nikki's 11 questions:

1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I thought it would be a fun project to start during the summer, having drawn inspiration from beauty bloggers Annie Jaffrey, MakeupByAlli and EssieButton! It has grown to be a hobby and a passion of mine!

2. Do you have a vlog channel?  If not, would you ever consider vlogging?
I do not have a vlog channel. I love watching vlogs but if I ever was to have one I think my videos would be super boring!

3. What is your absolute favorite beauty product?
I would have to say my L'Oréal True Match Foundation. I swear by this foundation!

4. What is your favorite store to visit when shopping for beauty products?
Definitely Walmart! I always go crazy and end up spending way too much on beauty stuff there haha, although I think Target might take its place once the department store opens in Canada next year!

5. What is your favorite clothing store?
I love Garage!

6. Where did you grow up?
Born and raised in Montreal, Canada! :)

7. What has been your favorite purchase in the last month? (Not just beauty or fashion - anything!)
My Real Techniques brushes!

8. Where do you do most of your blogging? (Your bedroom, your dining room, a coffee house?)
My living room!

9. What's a current beauty or fashion trend that you wish would go away?
Those grey sweat socks sticking out of fall/winter boots...I just don't get it!

10. Who is your inspiration?
I will have to say Annie Jaffrey. She has great lifestyle and beauty tips. She is such a sweet person and has a great outlook on life!

11. If you could be a celebrity for a day, who would you choose and why?
I would choose to be Carrie Underwood! She is one of my favorite singers and I really look up to her, plus her husband is smoking hot lol! ;)
