Liebster Award 2015: get to know more about us!


Did a little drawing of Judy and myself... guess who's who? ;)
Aloha!

Bit of a different post we're writing today, but-



AHHHHHHHHHHH ACTUAL HUMANS READ OUR RANDOM LITTLE BLOG FULL OF BLABBER AND PHOTOS WE'LL CRINGE AT IN THE FUTURE YAAAAAAAAAAY LIFE GOAL ACHIEVED :D


... we've been nominated for a Liebster Award! Thanks My Daisychain Closet for the nomination!

Credits to My Daisychain Closet for the image!

If you don't know what it is, it's not so much an 'award' as much but more of a tag created for smaller bloggers. Basically, whoever tags you asks you a bunch of fun questions and once you answer them, you create more questions to give to the people you tag. Sounds confusing, but it'll make sense, I promise.

So here are the rules (credits to this post where I got the rules from. It was the first thing that came up in Google when I searched up 'Liebster Award' so they must be right xD)




  • Write a blog post and reveal 11 interesting facts about yourself
  • In the same blog post answer the questions designated by the blogger who nominated you
  • You must also nominate other new bloggers for the Liebster Award
  • Give your nominees a list of questions they have to answer


FACTS ABOUT US (we'll do 6 each!)

Lena:
  • I have a love hate relationship with my laptop. It's the heaviest thing in the world and is super slow and has barely any space left on it but it's still so wonderful :")
  • Sims 3 is life.
  • Most of my childhood I've always been the super shy kid in class, and every single report said I was 'quiet'.
  • I cry reaaaaaally easily. When I was younger, it was mainly if someone hurt me physically or verbally, but now it's more from sad movies and depressing books. Or when I see something incredibly cute... I dunno why xD
  • According to my parents, I taught myself how to hold a pencil, draw and write. Probably was absolutely sucky at all of them though!
  • I dislike carrot.

Judy:
  • Matcha and Macbooks. *internally screams*
  • I have been learning the piano since year 4 (when I was 10). ♬ do re mi 
  • I pull horribly derpy faces that probably make me look really weird. I'm sorry if I scare you away T_T
  • I was considered tall in Kindergarten, but then other people started growing and I stayed short until around year 8, and now I'm finally growing taller again ^_^
  • I won a few drawing/colouring competitions back in the days, and got to meet the Premier, which felt considerably overwhelming to my 7 year old self!
  • I'm a horrible procrastinator. #procrastinationstation 


And now for le questions...

Key: L- Lena, J- Judy

1. If you had to sum up your blog in one sentence, what would it be?
L and J- Random ideas and thoughts typed out into weird sentences that consist of exclamation marks and lots of capitalisation, and usually quite unrelated photographs to make up for the rambles.


2. What's three things you want to achieve this year? One big and one small.
L- I want to a) Start volunteering somewhere (because getting a job is too daunting for me xD), b) Post every single week on this blog, c) Get straight As.
J- The three most important things I want to achieve are a) stop procrastinating and do something with all my spare time, b) read a lot more books, and c) yep, get straight A's.

3. What’s at the top of your current wishlist?
L- Crochet hooks, because I lost my small ones. Well technically they were my mum's.
J- I would say a Macbook, but that wouldn't be realistic, so I'll have to stick with cacti/ succulents! They're just so cute ^_^

4. If you could be best friends with any blogger/youtuber, who would it be?
L- I have no idea... probably Zoë Sugg because she just seems to be such a lovely person. And so I could play with Nala, her pet pug eeeeee so cute! ♡
J- T_T Can I be best friends with everyone?

5. Favourite quote?
L- "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
J- "Kindness is the language which deaf can hear and the blind can see."

6. If time had to stop and you were frozen at one point in your life, which point would you choose and why?
L- When I was 7-8 years old. Those were the good old days :')
J- Same... :')

7. Favourite film and why?
L- Any of the Harry Potter ones, hands down. I haven't properly watched any since I've started high school, and the other day Chamber of Secrets was playing as I walked past the TV, and I almost started crying from all the feels and memories T^T
J- Hm... I would say Finding Nemo, Wreck-it Ralph or some other Disney film :P Ooh, the Lego Movie too... (I know, I know, not Disney but still great!)

8. Your top essential for a holiday/ packing?
L- A good camera to capture those perfect memories (and instagrammable moments)
J- Clean clothes? But other than that, a human that speaks the native language of the place you're travelling to comes in handy most of the time.

9. What's your favourite coffee shop and what is your most common order? I.e. Café Nero, Starbucks, Costa Coffee etc.
L- I actually hate coffee, but Starbucks Frappichinos are all right I guess.
J- Probably Starbucks or Gloria Jeans? (Those are the only two I've been to...)  I usually just go with a cookies n' cream or matcha frappuccino.

10. Your slightly odd guilty pleasure?
L- The smell of a freshly painted room. Most people hate it but I love it :P Also the smell of permanent markers. And the smell of nail polish (I didn't originally like it, but I grew used to it :P )
J- It's probably buying things I don't actually need, for example, cacti-shaped erasers. T_T

11. Your favourite book and a bit about it?
L- Only the best series of books in the entire universe... Harry Potter :D
J- I can't decide on a book, but it would probably be one by Jodi Picoult or one from the contemporary genre.

WE SHALL TAG:
10. ... and you! :)
