Liebster Award Tag

I haven't done a tag since I was in high school, but Sarah's questions were quite fun, so thought I'd walk down memory lane a little!

The Rules
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people 
you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs!

11 Things About Me

1. I used to be a huge massive fan of the Backstreet Boys. I loved them so much I hated N Sync,
 just because they were not the Backstreet Boys. 
2. I have assymmetrical eyes. One eye slants up quite a bit more, one eye doesn't. 
One eye has a monolid, the other has a double lid. One eye is much bigger than the other. 
It's a pain to do eye makeup. 
3. I don't wear colour on my lips because I hate how my lips look. Ironically, MUAs love how my lips look. 
4. I exercise a lot, but I junk eat a lot too. 
5. I have pet rats. 
6. Since I was little, I always thought something amazing would happen when I reached 
certain age milestones. The first was 18. The next milestone is 30, and then after 50. Needless to say,
 I'm looking forward to turning 30... and I don't even know why. 
7. I used to have imaginary friends. 
8. I discovered yoga at age 22. It was the best thing to happen to me. I thank the ladies at
Somachi Yoga for wonderful inspiration. Now, I practice at home due to financial concerns. 
9. I play piano and violin professionally, cello competently, ukulele decently, struggle with flute and 
clarinet and classical guitar. And I sing reasonably well. 
10. I just discovered Guitar Hero not too long ago and I love it. Hopped on the bandwagon late. 
11. When I was younger, I wanted to be a writer. 

Sarah's Questions

1. What's the worst makeup disaster you've experienced?
Too much blush and spider lashes. I always thought spider lashes were a great look, until 
Michelle Phan debunked that myth... 
2. If you could time travel, which year/period would you travel to and why?
The 1800s France, just so I could meet Hector Berlioz. I fell in love with him after reading 
his memoirs, and wanted Somewhere in Time to happen. 
3. Do you prefer tea or coffee?
Tea now, mainly because my body suddenly decided it's super sensitive to caffeine.
4. What was your first pet?
First non-family pets were two hamsters. 
5. What is the most amount of money you've ever spent in one day on non essentials? 
(i.e not bills or groceries)
Err.... hundreds?? Maybe $600-700 on clothes? More? $1000? 
6. Do you know who chose your name?
One of my parents :P 
7. What is your best memory from school?
Being 12. I liked my friendship circle then before we all went our different paths in high school. 
8. What is the longest period of time you have gone without sleep?
48 hours. I had too much Red Bull. 
9. Your favourite brand of nail polish?
10. What made you want to start up a blog?
I wanted to keep track of my spiritual, mental and physical health. I could have made this a private 
blog... but figured some poor lost soul out there could benefit as well. 
11. If you could meet one celebrity, who would it be?
Shaun Milke from Alesana <3 Or Jesse Lacey from Brand New. 

My questions 
1. What is your fashion style? 
2. Medicine or naturopathy? 
3. Which one Youtube guru/Makeup blogger is your absolute favourite? 
4. Fitness junkie or couch potato? 
5. What is your worst food habit? 
6. How old were you when you first discovered makeup? 
7. Top 3 books 
8. How often do you buy beauty items? (eg. skincare, makeup)
9. How did you come by your blog name? 
10. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
11. Top 3 makeup must-haves

  1. I could've sworn I'd commented on this before but I can't see my comment now!

    Why do you hate your lips?! And you made me LOL at the Backstreet Boys comment!

    Thank you for tagging me! My post is up:

  2. You prob did but that captcha code got in the way! It's happened to me before :P

    I used to have huge fish lips when I was growing up... now that my head's grown, my lip size has stayed the same but I used to give Angelina Jolie a run for her money. Never quite got over that!
