 Thank you all for supporting me and I am a big supporter of all other new bloggers out there as well! Moving on, here's the link on my first Liebster Award if you have not read it yet: 

Liebster Award is an honor given to up and coming fun blogs that have less than 200 followers as a way to get their name out there and share some awesome blogs that you may have stumbled upon. Here's what it entails:

- Each blogger posts 11 random facts about themselves
- Each blogger answers the questions the tagger has set for you

- then you pick 11 new winners of the Liebster Award and link them to your post
- pick 11 new questions to ask the new chosen winners
- go to the new blog winner's page and tell them about their award
- No tag-backs!

*For this post, I will only be answering the questions given by the bloggers who nominated me. This is such a great way to know me more than my beauty reviews and other beauty blog posts here that's why I'm doing this. Hope you enjoy as I had fun answering them as well!

ANSWERS to Erica of Diary of a Trendaholic's Questions:

1- What is the nicest place you have ever been to or What is your dream vacation spot? Nicest place was in Halekulani hotel in Honolulu, HI for our honeymoon. My dream vacation spot though would be Paris, France! Most romantic place in the world - for me that is!

2- What is your dream occupation? Twenty years ago was to be a doctor. Ten years ago was to have my own Psychology practice in NYC. Five years ago was to open up my own Etsy shop, which is on hold right now. NOW I'd love to be a well known beauty blogger and be able to attend beauty events to learn more on this exciting beauty adventure I am in! *My dreams keep changing hehehe.
3- What is your favorite perfume? I bought this years ago and still am in love with it! My "L" by LAMB. It has light sweet tones of citrus in it. Just refreshing whenever I put it on.
4- What month were you born on? MAY 
5- What is one food you absolutely hate? shrimp. I can eat any other seafood but not shrimp.
6- What is your biggest pet peeve (something that annoys you)? People on the train that talks so loud either on their phone or to their friends, even with my headphones on!
7- What are your hobbies? I crochet; iPhoneography (taking artistic photos with my iPhone hehehe); learn to make different coffee drinks like Cappuccinos, Lattes, French Press, Cortado, Espressos...
8- What is your favorite movie?  The Notebook and Full Metal Jacket - two different extremes I know!
9- What has been your favorite purchase for this year thus far? OMG this is a hard one since this year has been a year I bought a lot of new beauty products! The best one so far is my SuperSolano XtraLite3300 since it benefits my hair and our German Shepherd and my arms!
10- What is your favorite season? Spring! It's my birthday season. And the temperature is just perfect for a nice spring dress and a light jacket if needed.
11- What is your favorite novel? The Wizard of OZ! I bought it for my niece recently and that was my first time reading the book. I have to say I like the book better than the movie!

*thank you! thank you Erica D for picking me and I really had fun answering these questions!!!

ANSWERS to Aileen of Beautiful You's Questions:

1- If you could only shop in one store for the rest of your life, what store would you choose? Target!

2- What is the thing you like most about yourself? My eyes. I used to hate them when I was younger since I was teased that I have owl eyes. Now I embrace them with a huge smile!
3- Who do you look most up to? My husband. I love his passion and determination to get what he wants, and with that attitude of his, he is in a pretty successful place in his life.
4- Name one thing in your room that means a lot to you. Besides my phone, which is always with me. I guess my - - - wallet(?) one of the things I'd make sure to grab when I leave the house.
5- What is your favorite perfume/ fragrance? "L" by L.A.M.B
6- What is your favorite song and why? Right now is "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke. It's the best summer song ever and I don't mind getting this stuck in my head! When I need some cheering up, I put this on and dance in the middle of my living room!
7- What made you start blogging? At first, it was for my own personal way of organizing my thoughts on how I feel about products I've been trying out. And when I started gaining more followers, I wanted to make this site more than just beauty reviews so I added my own diy's and monthly faves, and make-up looks that I have came up to share with my gorgeous readers!
8- One place that you most want to visit? Paris, France 
9- How did you first meet your bestfriend? My hubby is my bestfriend. We met when we were both wingmen for our close friends who met online. 
10- Have you had any embarrassing makeup mishaps? Yes! A lot of times since I was not such a beauty junkie back then and the worse one was when I saw pics of myself and my face is white from my buying the wrong color foundation! Now I know better.
11- What is one thing you have done in your life that you are most proud of? Being able to speak up for myself and not let anyone put me in a corner! After working for years as a front desk person at different offices, my bosses have taught me to be tough! Yes customers are always right but when they are stepping over the line that's when I speak up and make them back up! Having a voice is better than staying quiet!

*thank you so, so much Aileen for nominating me and great questions by the way!

I do have a part 3 for this since I was also nominated by Penny of Penny Rose Petal. I know I am so behind with this, so sorry about that ladies but I did not want to bombard your feeds with tag posts so I space them out and do one tag a week in-between my other beauty blog posts. Just letting you know, I did not forget about the Tag Posts! 

Hope you all have a great weekend!
