Liebster Award Nomination

So this morning I found out that I was nominated by the lovely Maddie for the Liebster Award, which I'm beyond excited about!  I think this is such a great way to connect with fellow newcomer bloggers and find tons of amazing new blogs to follow. So before I begin, I just want to say a huge thank you to Maddie and be sure to check out her blog with the link above because she writes tons of lovely fashion, beauty and lifestyle posts.

11 facts about me:

1. I was born on October 13th, 1994 - meaning I'll be turning 20 in just a few short months. Bye-bye teenaged years, hello exciting yet freighting adulthood!
2. I'm the oldest of 3 children in my family. I have a sister who's almost 18, and a little brother who just turned 13.
3. I'm going into my third year studying psychology in University - which I can't even fathom because I feel as though I literally just graduated high school...
4. I'm a huge coffee and tea junkie. I plan on dedicating an entire cupboard in my kitchen when I move out for solely storing my coffee and loose-leaf tea collection!
5. I'm like to be super organized. I have lists and notebooks galore, and I'm lost without my agenda.
6. My favourite place in the world thus far is Oahu, Hawaii. I was lucky enough to spend a week there with my family back in 2011, and I'm counting down the days until I can go back.  It's just so insanely beautiful and rich in culture, that it's impossible to not love life when you're there.
7. I love rainy days and thunderstorms - I find them so relaxing.
8. I have a serious problem with collecting (hoarding) scarves. I easily have 30 in my collection and I have no intentions of stopping anytime soon.
9.My first job was serving slushies and burnt french fries at a local hockey arena when I was 13. I didn't even make minimum wage but I loved it because I got to work with my best friend and flirt (lol well try to) with all the cute hockey players all day.
10. I've never had any pets aside from a couple of fish, because my mom is deathly allergic. I do however plan on getting a little Yorkie or a Morkie when I move into my own place!
11. I still have really no clue as to what I want to do with my life; all I know is that aspiring to be a chic, independent business woman like the fabulous Lauren Conrad doesn't seem like such a bad idea. 

The 11 questions I was asked:

1. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you were older? remember that I wanted to be several different things, with becoming a pop star and princess on the top of the list.  Dream big right? 
2. Are you allergic to anything? Raw carrots. Super weird, I know but whenever I eat them my throat and lips swell up and it's incredibly uncomfortable, soo it's best if I just stay away from them haha.
3. If you had to eat only one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Peanut butter. I pretty much already eat it everyday of my life anyways, so it wouldn't be too hard.  I love it on toast, in my oatmeal, on apple slices, and pretty much everything and anything!
4. Favorite time of day? Just as the sun is rising in the morning, when everything is still peaceful and the sky takes on a gorgeous coral-to-blue ombré. I love when I'm up this early (which honestly rarely happens except when I have to get to a dreaded 8:30am lecture) because I feel like I have the entire day ahead of me and that I can be super productive!
5. Favorite makeup product? This is probably the most difficult question for a beauty addict like myself to answer, there can't be only one. On the top of my list are definitely Benefit's boxed blush in Coralista, the Urban Decay Naked & Naked 3 palettes, and Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express mascara. 
6. If you were able to create one law, what would it be? Weekends would always be 'long' weekends, and never just consisting of only 2 unsatisfyingly short days. 
7. How old were you when you got your first phone? It was back in grade 8, so I think I might have been 13? I remember being one of the last of my friends to get one, who all had been rocking their hot pink Motarola Razrs for months by then.  My first phone was a white and orange Sony Walkman slider phone that was all the rage back then. Oh the days of T9 ;)
8. What time do you wake up in the morning? If I don't have school or work in the morning, then I usually wake up around 9-9:30 but I tend to laze around in bed reading or on my laptop for another hour or so before finally getting up for coffee.
9. Do you remember the first blog you read? The first blog that I started actually following was Undressed Skeleton by the lovely Taralynn, who now writes over on Simply Taralynn. I found her back when I was starting to get into health and fitness probably around 2 years ago. Before then, I was more into watching YouTube videos than reading blogs.  I became immediately addicted to the beauty 'guru' community, which I think is where my love for makeup products and fashion stemmed from.
10. Would you want to see what you look like in 20 years? Probably not. I'd rather embrace the present and keep that potentially freighting sight as a surprise for the future.
11. Do you believe in ghosts/angels? Ghosts yes. Angels not so much.
