Liebster Award! Yay!

Hey Dolls,  I'm back!  Sorry, I've been M.I.A for a while, I've been insanely busy here but I promise I will try my best to catch up.  Oookay... while I was gone I was Awarded the Liebster Award by Uber Sweet Leesa Finley -  One Olive Short.  I'm freaking thrilled & honored to accept this Award!  Thank you so much, Leesa!


Here are the rules for Liebster Award :

  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  • Answer the 11 questions the person giving the award has set for you.
  • Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award to.
  • Choose 11 people to award and send them a link to post.  Go to their page & tell them.

11 Things about me


1.   I love the sound of pouring rain outside my window, so relaxing and intoxicating.  It's always enjoyable to have a cup of hot Latte Macchiato, curl up in bed or armchair with a good book.


2.   I am the only child and my parents love me beyond description.  They freak out over everything.  It's not cool, but it's okay.  I am so blessed to have such wonderful and loving parents who love me too much.
Mom, Dad..... I love you both!

3.  Creepy crawlies + Heights = Big No No for me!  Nuh Uh!!!! Any creepy crawlies get near me, I will scream like a diva hits her highest note. Um..yeah.  Creepy indeed.  Okay, let's move on to heights!  Yeah, I am afraid of heights.  I cried on Ferris Wheel, I screamed on Roller Coaster and I passed out on Bungee Jumping.  Am I weird or is this normal?  Hmmm??

4.  Vintage is my vice.  I've been collecting vintage for years.  I love the sentimental value of old pieces.  To some people, vintage means junk but to me, vintage means treasure.

                     

5.   I am obsessed with DIY.  I love creating and re-purposing things. The finished products give me a total sense of satisfaction and accomplishment.

                    

6.  Since I was a little girl,  I've always wanted to be a fashion or jewelry designer.  I had to put my dream aside.  I entered and graduated from Business School. Yup, I'm happy that I've fulfilled my parents' wish. So now I'm pursuing my childhood dream!

7.   I've cheated death once.  My brush with death was at the age of three. I was hit by a car, thrown across the road and slipped into a coma.  It was hard for my parents, they thought they were going to lose me, but I survived.

8.  My nose is super sensitive.  My nose reacts easily to dust, some perfume smells, ink in newspaper, grains, any kind of smoke or any chemicals and I sneeze every morning without fail.  Once the sneezing starts, it goes on continuously for hours. I hate it when I sneeze while applying mascara and it gets all messed up!  So how to avoid messy mascara sneeze attack?  Here is the answer: Sneeze with our eyes wide open.

                                   Scream

9.  I love watching psychological thriller or horror movies all by myself in the middle of the night with the lights off.  I love the feeling of being scared and please don't ask me why. Afraid

10. Let's talk about my Love/Hate relationship with Cheesecake.  I eat Cheesecake all day everyday.  Just thinking about this sweet smooth creamy cheesy goodness makes my mouth water.  I hate you, bad boy.  Please don't leave me.

11.  I hate clutter!   Clutter drives me nuts.  I love to live a life free of clutter.  Ahhhh.... Heaven.....

Here are the 11 Questions that One Olive Short asked :

1.   What is your most prized possession and why?
My most prized possession is my 1) Parents - we're very close and love each other unconditionally, 2) Fur Sister - she's sweet, faithful & loyal.  She deserves my love, care & kiss and 3) Vintage handbag - my dad gave it to my mom on their first date and my mom gave it to me on my graduation day.

2.   Where is one place that you have never visited that you want to go and why?
North Pole!  I want to see, feel and experience life in North Pole.  Please don't ask me why again.

3.   What is your dream job?
My dream job would be a job that allows me to be creative, express my ideas & happy.  So what is my dream job?  Fashion Designer.

4.   If you could have super power what would it be?
Invisible...Muah ha ha....

5.   Do you believe in ghosts?  If so, has anything ever happened to make you believe?
The answer is Yes!  I often sense ghostly being and honestly I'm not proud of it.

6.   What is your favorite childhood memory?
No bills to pay, laze around 24/7 & play.

7.   Finish this sentence; I am
Not perfect because nobody's perfect.

8.   What is your favorite Holiday?
