I've been writing blog since I was in college but it wasn't serious. I guess it was because I haven't found my passion yet. Now, I'm trying to write on my blog regularly in between my tight schedule (yes, imagine being a house wife, a mother, and also a teacher. It's quite tiring). Lately, I've been writing about beauty and stuffs ^.^
Suprisingly, I've just been nominated for Liebster Award! It was Lova Cloverina who nominated me. Thanks sis! Honestly, I have no idea what this award about until I googled it and found out that this award rocks! It's a great way to know your fellow bloggers who share same interest and support each other.
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs.
Here are the rules for receiving this award:
- Link back to the blogger who nominated you
- Answer the 10 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
- Choose 10 bloggers who have under 200 followers and nominate them
- Come up with 10 questions to ask the chosen bloggers
- Go to your nominees' blogs and notify them
Here are my answers to sis Lova's questions!
1. Describe yourself in 3 words!
Talkative, Tender, and Tough (they all start with letter T! which represent my name 'Tya')
2. Favorite activities to do in your spare time?
Reading, reading, and reading! It's my getaway whenever I have spare time. I read mostly everything, from novels to comics.
3. Beach or mountain? Why?
Definitely BEACH! Beaches are obviously more breath-taking than mountains. I love how the wind blows my face with fresh air, dive and snorkel at the sea, and I don't mind having sunburn. ^.^ I guess I found out that I prefer beach than mountain when I was in college. Since i'm majoring in Biology, we did have lots of activities outdoor at beaches and mountains and I felt more thrilled when we went to the beach!. Besides, I always get bad experience in mountains T.T
4. Describe your fashion style!
Colour-matched and chic. I need to dress practically because as a teacher, I not only teach adults but also children. So I try to dress comfortably (when teaching children) yet still fashionable (to teach adults).And it must be colour-matched!
5. Favorite fashion designer(s) and brand(s)?
I have no favourite designers neither brands. I have a philosophy that it doesn't have to be expensive to be pretty. Most of my clothes are bought either in ITC or street vendors. I have a favourite shop in ITC where all the clothes are only 38.000 IDR! and they look great! Nobody believes that my clothes are less than 50.000 IDR. They always think I buy those at boutiques or department stores. I never buy clothes in department stores unless they give more than 50% discount!
6. Skincare and/or makeup products that you can not live without?
Liquid eyeliner, e.l.f Eyebrow Kit, My Konjac Sponge,
7. If you can only bring 3 items with you on a deserted island, what’d you bring?
My Victorinox Swiss Army knife (I learnt a hard lesson when I was in college to bring this wherever I go. It's one of the basic survival kit), sarong, and mosquito repellent.
8. 3 favorite blogs (with links)?
9. Thing(s) you learned recently? (like new recipes or new makeup looks ^^)
Lately, I've been learning how to apply eye shadow using different shades. That's why I invest in eye palletes and eye brushes.
10. Lifetime wish(es)?
I hope someday I can go to Makkah with my husband and children and publish my own poetry book (I've been writing poems but it's kinda difficult to publish this genre in Indonesia).
