Liebster Nomination for me?!

Thanks to Owl Eye Vintage for nominating me! This is an award of appreciation for bloggers with less than 200 followers and what a pleasant surprise it was that i was thought of and reached out to, I'm so thankful

The rules are are as follows:

~Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
~They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.

~They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.

~They must then choose 11 special bloggers to tag & award with the Liebster award with less than 200 followers.

~These lucky bloggers must be told in a comment on their blog 

11 things about me:

1. I remember everything I ever wanted to be in the order I wanted to be it: superman, ballerina. artist, zoologist, lawyer, general psychologist, counseling psychologist, clinical psychologist' English teacher ( the only reason writer is not on this list is because it is a staple not an option)

2. I can make a 3 leaf clover with my tongue.

3. I'm legally blind.

4. I am not afraid of  roaches, I have a vendetta against them that crosses generations, which is to say, i see them, i kill them.

5. I know which of the Caribbean Indian tribes that first settled on my island I descended from.

6. I have (VERY) distant Chinese roots.

7. I pronounce the word 'schedule' as 'sssh' instead of 'skk' in my head but I am VERY aware of it and Change it to ' sk' sound every time I'm about to speak for some strange self concious reason.

8. I am absolutely in LOVE with language and right now Korean is my second love (next to English of course!)

9. If I had a choice i would live in vintage dresses for the rest of my life.

10. I learned to read late due to bad sight but once I started they literally couldn't stop me; my mom band me from books so I would study instead. It didn't work though.

11. I only drink four types of soda, all of which are native to my parts of the world and they only stay in my diet because they have some kind of natural flavor of malt, lime, lemon or moby and that is only because they fooled me into thinking they were healthy when i inicially came off soda.

11 Questions for me:

1. Favorite thing to wear

Honestly my favorite thing to wear is a really nice fitting peer of jeans, I can dress it up, dress it down, go classy chic or punk chick, night time, day time anytime! Otherwise it would be summer dresses but I unfortunately do not own enough of them for me to class them as my favorite thing right now :(

2. Dream city to go on vacation to

Italy! Beautiful scenery! The cobble stone roads are calling me... I love it as a place that has this little town feel even though it's huge, who pride themselves on their architectural history, something I highly appreciate as art in it self. Dare we address the food? The pasta and the gigantic variety of desserts? I could live in sundresses and wide brim hats peered with floral heels. That is my dream outfit to live out the rest of my days...

3: What celeb would you want to meet and go to the movies with?

Well, I don't know if she qualifies as a celeb but if you've ever seen the My Life As Liz on MTV

I dig that chick, she seems so personable and we seem to share so many opinions! (including wishing we were redheads?!) Well, from what I can tell from the tv. I think she would be super fun to chill with because we could laugh and make silly sarcastic remarks when the people on screen do silly things. She doesn't seem like one of those people who would get pissed at me for talking too much in the movie and providing amused commentary as I am prone to doing

4. Favorite ice cream flavor?

I'm a chocolaholic. Nuff said.

5. Dream job?

Creative Writing teacher at a community collage. Simply because I'd love to catch students at this in between point and help them realize its ok to be a little confused or behind where you want to be, that you can make great things happen wherever you are.

6. If you had five minutes to shop and grab anything you wanted in any store, what store would it be?

Hm, it would have to be 'PinUpGirlClothing' or i'd have to say tuppencehapenny. Sure I know it's an online shop but if they HAD a tangible one I'd be all up on it. If those two options fail then Wetseal because my favorite looks are preppy and pin up/anything 1950s-60s

7. Favorite book?

The Alchemist.

8. favorite smell?

Hot asphalt after a sudden rain...

9. If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life and not gain weight, what would it be?

Pasta, as it comes in so many different forms and I can't imagine ever getting tired of it.

10. Favorite movie?

Pride & Prejudice directed by Joe Right

11. Favorite sport to play/watch


11 Questions by me:

1. When you were 16 what did you want to be when you grew up?

2. How did you pick your blog name?

3.  Which of your give scenes do you enjoy the most?

4. If you created the vinyl soundtrack of your life, what would the cover look like and what would it be titled?

5. If you could be stuck in any era of history, which would you like?

6.  If our earth is doomed and we end up moving to another, what would you want to be the same on the next planet and what would you like to be different? I.e I would hope there would be blue skies still and I wouldn't mind if there were no Mosquito...

7. What would be your three sentence biography?

8. Favorite colour?

9. If you got to be 'Chief Decision Maker' of the world for a day, what would be the ONE law you would pass and make irreversible in your absence?

10. Favorite animal?

11. If you could change your first name, what would you change it to?

This was some light fun. The bloggers i'm going to tag fit the criteria of the award and I'd honestly love to know more about them:

Dainty Doll
Sugar High Dreamer
 Cakes, Cupcakes and Cosmetics by Alessandra
