Liebster (Blog) Awards

liebster award

Last week I’ve been nominated for not one, but two Liebster Awards! I can’t believe how lucky I am and I really want to thank the two people who nominated me, Alenixedda of Da una stella cadente all’altra and Becky of Under the Sea Beauty. You guys are amazing, and if you don’t know their blogs, I really suggest you check them out cause they’re really worth you time!

Rules

  1. Link back to the person that nominated you.
  2. Answer questions given by the nominator.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  4. Create 11 questions for the nominees.
  5. Notify all nominees via social media/blogs.

Alenixedda’s questions

1. A book, a song, a movie and a city that describe you or to which you feel really close. This is more difficult than expected… As for the book, I will go with Sophie’s World, which is a book that changed my life. For the song I don’t even have to think about it, and I go with Imagine right away, cause it describes everything I believe in. There are many movies that I love, but I feel really close to Mary Poppins since it always remember me to look at life with positivity and it makes me believe that it is still possible to have the imagination of a child even when you’re older. Lately, I don’t think there is a particular city that can describe me or a part of myself… But I’d really like to visit Neverland, one day.

2. Which imaginary character would you like to meet, and why? Once again, I’ll go with Mary Poppins. I’d like to see if I would actually love her or found her irritating…

3. If you could time-travel which epoch would you choose? Would it be in the past or would you like to know the future? I will definitely choose something (well, sometime) in the past, even if I’m not too sure what era… But all I know is that the future scares me I really want the future to be a surprise.

4. Do you collect anything? Owls! Even if it’s not really a collection, but more an obsession…

Becky’s questions

1. If you could re-live any moment in your life, what would it be? My first concert with the choir where I sing, when I was about 6 years old. I remember I was really excited, and I’d like to feel that again, since after that we had so many concerts that sometimes I forget how exciting this can be.

2. What song could you listen to on repeat, and not get tired of? The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel.

3. What did you initially think when your blog started growing? I’m not even sure that it’s acutally growing that much, but I was really happy about the more comment I got, since that’s one of the things I love most about blogging.

4. If you could only pick one beauty item to take with you on vacation, what would you take? Mascara, for sure!

5. Did you think you would be where you are today a year ago? Yes, since I was already studying and I knew I still had at least one year to go. But thinking about my love life, I didn’t expect that many changes for sure… I guess I thought I was stuck, and I’m really happy I was wrong. I couldn’t be more blissful than I am!

6. What are you most looking forward to in this next year? I really hope my studies will end well and that I will find a decent work. And, well.. everything else that comes with it.

7. Your at the movies, what is your must-have snack to have? Pop corn for sure! Except if I’m watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In that case I must have some dark chocolate with me.

8. Have you ever thought about starting your own YouTube channel? If you have one already, what motivated you to start it? I thought about it, but I wouldn’t know what to do. Also, I don’t think I would ever be able to talk in front of a camera.

9. What is your favorite quality about yourself? I think I’m a good listener, and I love to help others when I can.

10. What motivates you to write a blog post? When I have a good blogpost idea, I just want to share it with my readers! When I have some good photography that can go with it, I feel even more motivated!

11. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be? Probably Canada, but only if Stitch can come with me.

    • Thanks Becky! I went to Whistler for 7 months a few years ago and loved it. It’s the best place I’ve ever been… the nature is amazing, and the people are so kind! But if I could go back there now, I’d like to travel and see the whole nation :)
      Where area are you from?

  • Novellette

    Thanks so much for the nomination Ellie! It’s so sweet of you! xo

    • You’re very welcome, I love your blog!!

  • I would love to visit Neverland! I’ve never even thought about wanting to go there, but it would be such a fantastic place to explore! I completely agree with you on the whole Youtube channel question; I would be so horrible at talking to a camera… I’m awkward enough in person! x Thank you SO much for the nomination, Ellie! I’ve already made a post about the Liebster award so I probably won’t make another, but I am so grateful that you took the time to recognize my little space on the internet! xx

    • I think Neverland would be amazing :) But not on the way it looks like in Once Upon a Time haha that would be scary!
      You’re very welcome, your blog is amazing!

    • Thank you so much Candice!

  • Thank you for the nomination you are too sweet! Also- loved reading your answers it was like a mini (or not mini?) FAQ :)

    • You’re welcome! And thank you!! Haha I don’t know about the “mini”… I have to admit it took me a lot to answer all the questions, even if I had so much fun doing it!

  • Che belle risposte, Ellie! Grazie!
    Io ho un rapporto di amore/odio con il film di Mary Poppins: alcune scene le amo alla follia (per esempio quella di quando riempie o svuota la borsa) e altre che non sopporto proprio (tipo i balletti coi pinguini)!!
    E i gufi son troppo carini, nonché portafortuna, un giorno potremmo fare un post con le foto delle rispettive collezioni/ossessioni XD

    • Grazie a te carissima!
      Il film di Mary Poppins io invece lo adoro dall’inizio alla fine, balletti dei pinguini compresi.
      L’idea di un post sulle proprie ossessioni mi piace!!
