Liebster Fun

Hey, so yesterday I was nominated by the oh so funny Miss Ajam, Naeemah (fab blogger of the Jam Jar) for a Liebster Blog Award. Eeek! 

Give me a minute to get over the excitement.

Okay still not over it!

To be honest, I've seen these on a few blogs and wondered what it was, but never checked it out. Thank you Naeemah, for filling me in. In a nutshell bloggers nominate each other and send around a set of questions they come up with. It is a great way for bloggers to get to know each other and readers get to know more about bloggers too. Yaaay. Okay, I am really bad at explaining things especially when I am excited. So rule number one is that I answer Naeemah's questions, then I choose 10 bloggers I'd like to nominate and I ask them 11 questions. So here it goes: 




Naeemah asked: 

1. While you are writing a blog post, which position is most comfortable? 
Shoo, I have some serious back issues so sitting up it is.

2. What do you listen to while blogging?
Believe it or not, I am BAD at multi-tasking. So with music, the only thing I can do while listening to it is dance! If I could though I would listen to Kanye West's College Dropout. 

3. Which beauty item is your holy grail?
I left this question for last because I am not really good with beauty 'stuffs'. Labello?

4. What's your favorite TV show?
Happy Endings.

5. If you had to pick between a muffin and a cupcake, which one would you take?
Cupcakes please, I get all pukey when I see muffins.

6. How many times have you burnt yourself with a hot styling tool? 
All the time, when I got my first hot styling tool. I eventually got the hang of it, after the abuse my poor ears had to suffer.

7. If you could be any Disney character, which one would you be? and Why?
Pocahontas. She can paint with all the colours of the wind? That, and she's a free spirit and a beauty who is not vain at all.

8. Horror? Comedy? Action? Thriller? Romcom?
Draaaamaah! No, comedy!

9. Fill in the missing words: I would rather "_______________" than "_______________"
Be chewed on by rats wearing R5 lip gloss than listen to Akon. Aikona for Akon.

10. If you could have anything made in your honour, what would it be? and Why?

A book? Or Candy? Better yet, a book with edible pages. I love reading and I have a sweet tooth.

11. Coca-Cola or Pepsi or ________? 

Minute Maid Lemon & Nada or Steri Stumpi, strawberry is the flavour.



Step one is complete, thank you Naeemah!
Sooo I nominate...





  1. Desle - Diva Desle
  2. Rushda - RuBe's Closet
  3. Neliswa - Nelly Pearl Fashion Lunatic
  4. Lynette - Pink & Purple Dots
  5. Aaqelah - Drizzles Domain
  6. Amina - Oh! Just One More
  7. Lisa - Jade - Life Like Mine
  8. Odette - Oh So Inspired
  9. Zina - Inspiration Archive
  10. Monie - Raw Explosions

And my questions are:

1. What made you start your blog?
2. Which Spice Girl were you? and Why?
3. Harry Potter or Twilight? (Sorry, I just had to.)
4. Do you often use words that you've made up? If so, share!
5. What annoys you most?
6. Is there anything in particular that inspires you when choosing topics for blog posts?
7. Complete the sentence: I am lost without ________________.
8. Who would win a war against dementors? Android, IOS, or RIM(Sorry I just had to, again).
9. Have you ever stolen a car? Would you?
10. The most appropriate punishment for spammers is ______________.
11. You can't leave the house without ____________, because____________.


Cheers

Bianca Kim Gypsy Skirt

Hey guys. I have been gone for so so so long. I won a Bianca Kim Clothing voucher a while ago ( a really, really long while ago) through Brett Robson's blog and I have been meaning to do a post of the goodies I bought. So this post is long overdue. Better late than never right? It's the second half of the year and I have so much to do. Right now I am focusing on my academics and trying to give it my best. It is not so easy, since there are so many distractions and amazing new South African blogs to check out. I fell in love with the gypsy skirt and planned on buying it, whether I won or not...so glad that I did though. I can't to wear it again. Anyway back to the books guys. I miss posting. I really do. Till next time...
