Liebster award


I’m posting soon after my last entry because I just received my first ever Liebster award nomination! I am elated! Thanks a bunch to Kirst of lipstickedxo! I’m completely new to blogging and most of the people I follow I actually only started following this week. This is such a fun way to make new connections and create a community. So here’s my post! ๐Ÿ˜€

5. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you;
6. You must let the people you nominate know they have been nominated

Kirst’s 11 questions:

1. What is the first makeup item you bought for yourself?
Hmm I can’t even remember hahaha. I think it was Maybelline’s Mineral Powder Foundation (sorry, I can’t remember the variant). I distinctly remember how pretty I felt after applying that foundation on hahaha! That was back when I was 11, I think. I have acne, which is probably why that was the first product I bought for myself.
2. Do you have a signature scent or perfume?
Err not really but the scent I wear most of the time is from a baby cologne by a local brand called Bench in Ice Mint. My boyfriend loves the scent, which is why I wear it most of the time hahaha. Otherwise, I wouldn’t really be wearing any. Not a perfume fan.
3. Do you still use anything that you bought (or since repurchased) when you first got into makeup?
Yes! I still have a pot of Maybelline’s Mineral Powder Foundation and I still use the mascaras that I first bought — Maybelline’s The Falsies and Volum’ Express. I guess I’m into Maybelline until now because most of the first products I bought were from them!
4. What is your guilty pleasure?
Sweets! Either chocolates or baked goods! I love Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut variant, I used to finish 200g of that thing! And I bake, so that’s where the baked goods come from haha.
5. Milk, Dark or White Chocolate?
Milk and dark. I find white chocolate too sweet.
6. What is your next makeup purchase going to be?
I’m still not sure, but I’m eyeing a foundation palette from Cinema Secrets for my professional kit.
7. If you could come back as any animal what would it be?
A dog! I love how they relate to humans. If not, a clingy little tarsier or koala just because they’re cute hahaha.
8. Whatโ€™s on your ultimate pizza?
Lots of cheese! I also like peppers and olives. I dunno how those will come together though. Haha.
9. Do you collect anything other than makeup?
Hmm. Trash? Hahaha! I can’t seem to differentiate a thing of value from one that has none. I’m a hoarder in that sense.
10. Whatโ€™s one word your best friend would use to describe you?
Mommy! Everyone I get close to call me that at some point.
11. Do you still have anything from your childhood like toys or blankets?
Yes! I still have stuffed toys and some clothes from way back. I’m donating all my stuffed toys to an orphanage this year though. ๐Ÿ™‚

My 11 fun facts:

1. I bake and sell my favorites! โค
2. I choose my friends quite carefully, which is why I don’t have a lot.
3. I want to start a one-stop wedding (or events in general) organizing company in the future.
4. I love to sing!
5. I graduated from Ateneo de Manila University, one of the top local universities, with a degree in Management, cum laude! But I am now a freelance makeup artist. :p
6. I used to be indifferent toward dogs. Now, I love them. I got that from my boyfriend, who loves dogs like I love babies hahaha.
7. I’m a Christ follower! ๐Ÿ˜€
8. I’m often a perfectionist and control freak. I try to hold myself back. Haha.
9. I’ve been told so many times that I wanna do too many things.
10. I don’t really like reading, except when it’s about something I’m really interested in. Like makeup. Haha.
11. I originally wanted to pursue a degree in Chemistry! I liked Chemistry back in high school but later realized that I didn’t really want to work as a chemist. I still like Chemistry in general though. See how diverse my interests are? :))))
