Blog Tags && Awards

I’m a major procrastinator, so I always leave things until the last minute.  I’ve been awarded a couple awards in the last several months that I’m only getting to now, so bare with me as I’m blabbing along. Instead of tagging everyone after each award, because it might get a little confusing, I’'m going to be a little "rebellious" and tag/ award everyone at the end.
The first award was from Yours Truly Pam

The rules for these awards are: 
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered new bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they've received the award(s).
Seven Things About Me
  1. Like I mentioned previously, I’m a HUGE procrastinator!!! 
2.  I can’t stand little kids, especially the crying, whiny ones. That’s why I’m not having kids when I’m older, unless if I can kinda foretell that that the child I’m “going to have” is going to be quiet and obedient. LOL 
3.  I have a brother, that’s two years younger then me. But his actions and height makes people think he’s older!!! i.e he bullies me =[ lol in a fun playful way. He’s quite amusing, especially when he gets excited about stupid things, like his D.I.Y shelf. It’s seriously such a joke, but he was so proud lol. I offered to buy him a legit shelf, but he was insistent on using the one he made XD It might be a pride thing...

4.  I prefer salt to sugar. i.e chips to chocolate =D My favorite has to be Lays Ketchup =D YUMMY
5.  Asian stereotypes generally don’t apply to me, except the asians can’t drive bit. LOL I’m a horrible driver, I get really nervous and curse a lot.
6.  I get really into k-dramas and Korean reality shows. Usually on my computer, you’d see me pointing and screaming random exclamatory Korean words I’ve learned. I also tend to bow or lower my head a bit when I see others bow on my screen, lol it’s weird. 
7.  I’m very klutzy, always tripping and running into things!

Next couple awards and tags "given by" INSIDEOUTELLE

I Love Your Blog Tag
1. Why did you create this blog?
I’ve always wanted to start a blog to talk about random things, and share my opinion on different products. I’ve just never actually put it to action until now!!!
2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
Mostly beauty and fashion blogs!!! I love seeing OOTDs, hauls and reviews.  
3. Favorite makeup brand?
This is a difficult one, there’s too many!!! Rimmel London, Maybelline, MUFE, Urban Decay...
4. Favorite clothing brand?
N/A lol interesting eh? considering I’m currently studying fashion design. For the clothes I wear, I usually buy it if it looks, and feels good. I would call “my style” comfortably casual with the occasional heels lol. 
5. Your indispensable makeup product?
MAC studio finish concealer NC30 or my Rimmel Long Brow pencil 002 Hazel, can’t decide...( but now that i've gotten my brows tattooed... i guess it's just the concealer)
6. Your favorite color?
7. Your perfume?
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea : clean and fresh
Britney Spears Curious: fun and sexy
8. Your favorite film?
Can’t pick just one, there’s way too many, usually between chick and action flicks. 
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
This is easy, KOREAAAAAAA lol!!! Because I LOVE everything about it, from the culture, food, people, EVERYTHING!!! 
10. Make up the last question and answer. What book are you reading right now? (brain fart atm, gonna steal Elle’s question =]) I’m currently re-reading the Twilight sagas, I love lovey dovey romance novels!!! 

With the acceptance of the award, you must follow these rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person that awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.
  1. 7 things about myself:
  • I love toe socks =] 
  • I’m a picky eater, I’ll try different foods as long as they don’t use the ingredients I don’t like such as: green onions, peppers, parsley, etc. 
  • I’m horrified of bugs, any bugs!!! I’ll scream and panic until it's caught. 
  • I’m not good at fine arts, i.e drawing realistically
  • I had really ugly eye brows, until college, they’re not perfect, but WAY better then before. My natural brows have a really high arch (thanks dad -_-’), and the hairs are really thick and dark. My mom has the pretty asian brows (jealous) I’ve shaved off 1/4” of the arch in my natural brow, so when  I raise my brows there’s a dent LOL. My brother always makes fun of me at home when they’re not drawn =p 
  • I’m very spacey, I think it’s the short attention span thing. 

1. Post about the award and copy the rules.
2. Link to the person who gave you the award.
3. Choose 3-5 blogs you would like to give the award to and link them.
4. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know. 
5. Write 7 things about yourself

1. When I speak, my tone is always off. So I always fail at sarcasm, the other day I was being sarcastic to my friend and he looked at me like I was crazy LOL It also sucks, because sometimes people get offended by my messed up tone, i.e I was sincerely asking my co-op designer the difference between New Zealand and Australia, but it came out as if I didn’t care/ there wasn’t a difference between the 2. 

2. Not a fan of exercising/ sweating lol (HK is killing me ><)

3. I need 10+ alarms to wake me up in the morning, usually at 10 minute intervals

4. When I move out I want to have 2 cats and 2 dogs, there’s so many cute breeds I want, Prussian Blue (cat), German Sheppard (dog)

5. I talk to my computer. (keeping this one, because I do too lol)

6. I wear hard contacts (will be doing a post on this later)

7. I’m a homebody, I used to go out all the time, but as I’m getting older (I’m only 20 but I guess I experienced some things earlier so they don’t appeal to me anymore) I prefer chilling at home, other people’s home or coffee shops. 
7 Beauty Characteristics
1. Hair: I like that it grows at a decent pace, but when I cut it impulsively I wish it would grow faster =]
2. Brows: I like them now, I draw them every morning. They look even in person, but sometimes in photos one looks WAY off lol
3. Eyes: I have natural double lids, but they change depending on the amount of sleep I get
4. Eyelashes: They’re fairly long, and dark.
5. Hands: According to my mom’s friends I have pretty hands, I’m not crazy about them myself, I wish they were a little thinner but my nails are okay.
6. Laughs A LOT: I tend to laugh a lot, at random things I find funny. 
7. Confident: I’m not overly confident, but a decent amount =p

4. Drop them a note and tell them about it
Random things:
1) I love snacking =D

7) My most PUBLIC embarrassing moment: It happened at Canada’s Wonderland (amusement park) on the Pirate ship ride... I got on the back row with my friends and I was slipping my phone into my pant pocket, but missed and it fell on the floor. So I reached down to pick it up and the safety bar came down, thus folding me in half >< One of my friends tried to lift the bar with no avail, while the other was screaming at the operator to release the bar! The worker happen to be on speaker as he was telling the operator to release the bar, so people on the ride, waiting in line and those within earshot of ride heard. >< They asked if I wanted to get off because of this traumatizing experience... but I couldn’t because it was too embarrassing to walk out alone, so I stayed on the ride and walked out with everyone else XD
