The Liebster Award

I must give a big thanks to Beauty-full Dreams for nominating me for the Liebster Award! She’s got a fantastic blog that focuses on reviewing Korean cosmetics. I’ve only recently been getting into those brands, so her blog is such a handy resource!

Beauty-full Dreams’s 10 Questions

1. What’s the color of your phone?
Black, but the case is pink & orange. I’m using an older phone, and I was lucky to find a cute Kate Spade case for it at Winners since nobody actually sells cases for it anymore (unless I got some random cheapo case online).

2. Blazing hot or ice cold? (can be weather, dishes, drinks or anything you can think of ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
Ice cold, for the most part. I do like spicy food, though!

3. The one accessory you couldn’t live without?
Handbags! All of them!

4. What Summer fragance are you using now, if any?
A perfect summer scent of citrus and hazelnut chocolate:

5. Black eyeliner or colorful eyeliner?
I don’t use black as often as I use brown/bronze, purple, and grey, though I suppose those aren’t exacly colorful.Urban Decay After Dark Travel 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Set: Corrupt, Voodoo, Zero

6. What’s the last movie you saw & liked?
I’ve really been watching more TV shows than anything else, but I did recently see Kingsman: The Secret Service, and enjoyed it immensely! From the trailers, I thought it was a dumb kid’s movie—it’s anything but. Yikes, don’t let your little kids see this one! I kept hearing from people that it was really good, and then when I found out it was directed by Matthew Vaughn (who’s directed some movies I’ve really liked: X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, Stardust, and Layer Cake), it was a no-brainer to finally watch it. Did not disappoint. Bonus: Colin Firth as an action hero?!

7. Is there anything you’d like to achieve this Summer?
I know I keep saying this, but I need to get my nail polish organizer up and running! It’s been a busy summer with family obligations and a million household chores.

8. Do you have an absolute favorite quote?

Whenever you find yourself on the side
of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Mark Twain

9. Best ice cream flavor?
Lemon! And green tea. I also had a limited edition pumpkin gelato last fall that was incredible!

10. Indiana Jones or Star Wars?
I gotta say Indiana Jones. I was never a massive Star Wars fan, even though I did enjoy the movies (but not the Ewoks), but I grew up watching the Indy movies over and over! I do, however, pretend that the last Indy movie was never made.

They should really illustrate movie posters more often!

  1. Citrus and hazelnut chocolate in a PERFUME! Say what!
    I’m with you on the non-black liners – I find straight up black to be too harsh (read: hooker-ish) for every day wear.
    Oh now I really want to watch Kingsman. I’ve been interested in watching it but the SO wasn’ just lukewarm.
    Congrats on the award!

    • Oh yeah, one of my fave perfumes! It’s pretty unique (to me).
      If you enjoyed Vaughn’s other movies, you should really like Kingsman! Similar feel/sensibility.
