The Liebster Blog Award!

The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers. The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

I was nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by I Relish Nail Polish! just this morning! Talk about a great start to the long day I have ahead of me! Thank you so much, Jenni Lee! She photographs amazing, high quality swatches and writes very informative posts about nail polish-related things (such as what those weird pictures mean on the polish bottles and great reviews of top coats). Not to mention she has beautiful nails! Her posts are very easy to read; I like how she is terse and direct. Her blog has a nice, simple layout that allows the reader to focus on what's important. The background does not distract the reader from the swatches and reviews. Make sure to check out her great blog!


1. Each person must post 11 random facts about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you've tagged to answer.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. Remember, no tag backs.

11 Facts About Myself

1. I LOVE sleeping. And I sleep very deeply. It is very likely that it will take you at least 5 minutes to wake me up.
2. I have 3 Ulta boxes completely filled with nail polish, and 2 small Julep boxes that have a few polishes in them. (It seems like a lot, but I only have 128. A collection that pales in comparison to those of other nail polish bloggers.)
3. My favorite color is turquoise. Mint is a close second. Then rich purple... Actually, this list can go on and go. :/
4.  I like cold weather. I feel vegetated in hot weather... Which is my city's weather of choice.
5. I haven't watched TV in years (well, okay, I do watch it occasionally with my family). I'm alive and well. Probably smarter too since quite a few shows are sooo dumb nowadays. (Where are those awesome 90's cartoons?!)
6. I really love drawing, but I haven't had much time since I got to college. (Swatching and reviewing only takes 15-25 minutes. When I draw, I like to go full out.)
7. I played the piano until 5th grade and learned how to play a few chords on the guitar in 6th grade for an enrichment class.
8. I'm short. Like, REALLY short... ;___;
9. My nickname is "Boss". Cool, huh?
10. I like love 9gagging. Check out 9gag sometime! (And your soul shall then be stolen...)
11. I can't think in the mornings because I'm so tired. Like right now. Zzzz. (That's why I sound so loopy.)

11 Questions Asked By I Relish Nail Polish!

1. What are you looking forward to this week/month?

I'm looking forward to Thursday and Friday! On Thursday, I'll get my WAH Nails Book of Nail art and, on Friday, I'll get to sleep in and take the day slowly. I'll be able to swatch... And then have to study.

2. What have the last few years taught you?

You have to face everyday with courage and the strength to keep on going. Nothing's going to stop for you. You make your own way in this world. The future is far away, but the hard work is worth it. Always have hope... Something that lingers inside you. Something that gives you strength.

3. What would I find in your refrigerator right now?

Lots of yogurt, organic milk, carrot juice, Naked Green Machine juice, some Vietnamese food, and boiled eggs. That's all I remember right now.

5. How many close friends do you have?

Seven. I choose my friends carefully (my close ones especially so). I don't care about how many I have, just about who they are.

6. If you won $20 million in the lottery, what would you do with the money?

I'd put quite a lot of it in a bank account to invest, another large bit to organizations/charities that I support, pay for college (so my parents won't have to), keep my grandparents strong and healthy, and save a little for personal expenses. My family and friends have all they would ever need and more. They're happy (or should be).

7. What was the last movie you went to see?

I believe it was The Artist at my college theater.

8. What is the last book you read?

Does my organic chemistry book count? Haha. If not, then La Muerte y El Ser Humano (Death and the Human Being), a philosophical book written in Spanish that I found in my college library. I, unfortunately, only had time to read several pages before it was due.

9. Age and do you feel your age?

I'm 18 (19 next month!), but I feel like an overprotected teenager who can't do anything she wants and can't have a life until she gets into dental school. (The latter were true words from my mother.)

10. Children and or pets?

Pets. I feel like they truly care and love you more. I also do not like children. (I tolerate them if they are well-behaved though.)

11. Why do you think people follow your blog?

I like to believe they follow me because they like what they see and think my blog has potential. (I also believe some of my followers, who are bloggers I follow, know how hard it is to gain support.)

The Nominated! (This was very hard so there aren't many.)


  1. Wow Boss, we have a lot in common. Like you, I'm really short, don't like children unless well-behaved, have not watched TV since 2008, has a tiger mom, likes to sleep, and dislikes hot weather. Yes, your organic chemistry text book counts. Gotta love those hydrocarbons!

    1. It's a big world out there, but it gets smaller as you find people who are similar to yourself! :D Glad I found someone in the blogosphere!

      Hmmm. Esters! Gotta love how they smell!
