The Liebster Award

Check that! Wow! This is my third post and I've already been nominated to a Liebster Award which is pretty much impressing. The lovely Iz from I is for Iz nominated me and, of course, I decided to answer the questions! Plus I love tags, I think they're lovely and really entertaining. It can help you know better the blogger!

These are the rules:

  1. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.
  2. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and notify them of the award.

Would you like to see the questions I answered and my nominees?

These are Iz's questions! 

1. If you could dye your hair any other colour, what would it be? 
Well, I'm a natural brunette and last month I dyed it to have an ombre. But If I had to go crazy just for the fun of it I think I'd dye it with really crazy colours, maybe an ombre with pink or even blue! Something really, really crazy!

This is how my ombre looks like (and yes that's me!) 

2. When you're not blogging, what do you do for fun? 
I really like drawing and reading. I just put some music on, grab my tablet or a paper and I start drawing. It's my thing. But I also enjoy going out with my friends!

One of my unfinished drawings. That's Harry Styles, yes!

3. On a big night out, are heels a must? 
*Sigh* If it's a big, big night out... I think it is a must for me although I always wear flats in the end, like, I keep them in my purse or something. I just can't walk with heels, I'm the clumsiest person ever but I agree they help you upgrading the outfit you're wearing.

4. What is your favourite item of clothing you own? 
This may come out as a joke but besides my blazers and my blouses, one of my current favourite items is... a kigurumi. Yes, exactly. A kigurumi! An animal onesie. It's the best thing I have to keep me warm and it also looks very, very cute. It was a Christmas/Birthday present from my boyfriend and I'm wearing it a lot when I need to be warm.

They also make amazing costumes, don't you think? There are plenty of animal onesies you can get. The brand SAZAC KIGURUMI sells them for around 50-60$ which can be slightly pricey. However, eBay tends to have amazing deals. They are made of fleece and they're incredibly warm. I'm actually writing this post while wearing it..

It feels as fuzzy as it looks, yes!

5. Where would you love to be right now? 
London, definitely. I have been thinking of coming back ever since I came back last year from my first trip to the English capital. I really loved it.

6. What is a name you really hate? 
Carlota. It's the Spanish version of Charlotte.

7. Who is your celebrity idol right now? 
That's a tough one! Probably Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. I'm enjoying what they do — a lot!

8. Guilty pleasure music? 
Electronic music / Reggaeton music. I'm not into those genres but I tend to listen to them sometimes, specially during my gym sessions!

9. Name three essential items you need in your bag when you go out. 
My purse, my keys and a notebook!

10. Favourite dessert.
Flambeed strawberries with vanilla ice-cream. Mhmmm!

11. Describe an ideal weekend.
An ideal weekend would be stress-free. Probably hanging out with my friends on Friday night, going out to the pub or just for dinner, then out and about the city centre for some random shopping spree and watching movies on Sunday!

My nominees are: Diana | Astrid | The Dotted Bow | Stells | Brittany | Marie  | Molly | Sophie | Ruby | Pinar

These are my questions:

  1. What's your favourite lipstick?
  2. What's your biggest regret regarding a beauty product? (Like, something you regret buying!)
  3. Do you like reading? If so, what's the last book you read?
  4. What's your favourite song at the moment?
  5. Do you prefer earphones or headphones?
  6. Do you wear the same bag often or do you have different bags for different occasions (and outfits)?
  7. What's your favourite drugstore brand?
  8. If you could live somewhere else, where would you be?
  9. What hobbies do you have besides blogging?
  10. What's your favourite food?
  11. Are you looking forward to any event?

If you've been nominated, it's not compulsory for you to do this tag if it doesn't feel your blog schedule or whatever! But if you wanna do it, I'll be more than happy (and if you could let me know, that'd be great!)

I hope you all have a wonderful day today!
