My First Blog Award Nomination: The Sunshine Award

Sorry that I MIA for the past two weeks. Caught the nasty flu virus and been resting, slowly nursing myself back to health!

Here’s a special shoutout to Eithne from Thanks babe for nominating me for The Sunshine Award. Parts of this entry layout will be copied from her post as I am not really sure how it goes about… 😀

The award is given and passed on to “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”!

With the recognition of the Sunshine Award comes a list of rules:

  1. Acknowledge the person who gave this award in a blog post.
  2. Do the Q&A below.
  3. Pass on the award to 10 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.


Who is your favorite philosopher?

No favourite philosopher at the moment yet. In my opinion and vague interpretation of philosophy, I think everyone can be a philosopher in their own sense and come up with their own unique ideas about the world.

What is your favorite number?

#9 !! One of my most repeated index number when I was in Primary school! Just did a small google on numberology on the #9, read up over here. Very interesting and some hits and misses about me, but I think it will be more relevant for people having the #9 in their birthdates.

What is your favorite animal?

I am kind of afraid of animals. I love watching them on TV, behind a glass wall but not real physical interaction. Maybe this fear originated from me being chased by three German Shepherds when I was 11 Years Old. Thanks God I wasn’t maul to death, super lucky to escape without any scratches. -phews

What is your favorite time of day?

Sleeping time!!! I think my brains work the best when I am sleeping. I dream every single night, short multiple dreams or long connected dreams. Sometimes a reflection of the day events, sometimes it doesn’t have any meaning.

What are your Facebook and Twitter?

I have no twitter at the moment! But please follow my instagram here 

What is your favorite holiday?

hmmm, it’s a tricky one because I love all my holidays!!! ok, most of my holidays!!! I love touring around Europe, but it is too expensive so I only did it during my Uni exchange program at Norway.

So alternatively, I love going to Thailand for a short getaway. To load up on cheap and yummy authentic Thai food and clothes / accessories!!

What is your physical favorite activity?

SHOPPING!!! hahhahs

I am not a gym bunny and my only physically active period was NPCC in Sec School / Cheerleading in JC. (that’s why I put on so so so much weight now 😦 ) Considering going for some dance / pilates / yoga classes next year, so that I can start to age gracefully…

What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?

Bubble Tea: Koi’s Grass Jelly Milk Tea / Share Tea’s Yakult Green Tea with Aloe Vera. Unhealthy I know but I try to avoid the pearls and request 50% sugar reduction. 🙂

What is your passion?

Hard to describe, just continue to read my blog because I am writing about daily things I am passionate about 🙂

In short, Beauty, Food, Lifestyle and LOVE.

What is your favorite flower?

No particular favourite because all flowers are beautiful. Whether they are the main lead or the side kicks within a bouquet of flowers, they are equally important to complete the look 🙂

My Nominations for the Sunshine Award:

Joey Space – One of the first few beauty blogs I read since 2011. She has amazing product shots and always coming up with inspiring LOTD. Her blog features higher end make up, which I totally dig!

Makeup Blogette –  Also one of the first few beauty blogs I have been following! She helped me with a foundation question which I emailed her last year when I was still new in the area of foundation. Hee hee

My Beauty Hoard – A hot mummy whom inspired me that married with kids do not equal to being boring and haggy! Her product shots are not always superly glamourous / studio-like photos but they are very realistic in the sense that one can imagine the products look on a normal day. Oh and she picked up pole dancing recently wheee^^

Cafe Makeup – They are like a makeup cafe, where I will visit when I feel like a good read and for more information for latest product offerings. Very clean blog layout combined with very sleek photos and fluent language. Was a bit disappointed last year when they announced that they are pulling the blog out. But after a few months, they are back again!!!  YAY

The Beauty Look Book – Found her blog when I was searching on Chanel beauty products, which her blog features very often 🙂 And she has a huge stash of make up and she bothers to have dupe comparisons. Very helpful as people can avoid buying similar colours which they already have.

Temptalia –  The dictionary of all beauty products. Really, you can find her reviews and photographs of most latest products, especially Mac cosmetics  Her archive of all her past reviews is like a massive pile of gems and I always go for this treasure hunt, often so when I want to know more about a brand. Am always tempted by the product she featured and I will almost always check her reviews on some things before I splurge on them.  Wonder how she gets the energy to review so much products but excellent job!!!

Some non-beauty related:

Bagaholic Boy – One of the most comprehensive and up-to-date website on fashion / bags / small leather goods. I ‘blame’ him for my first LV bag, Louis Vuitton Monogram Rayure in petitie Noé. 

I didn’t have a list of ten bloggers yet but the above are my frequent reads 🙂
