The Liebster Award

My first blog award. Ever. The Liebster Award. And on New Year's Day! Woohoo :D

A huge thank you to Lainey for nominating me!

What is the Liebster Award?
Supposedly, it is an award given to blogs with less than 200 or 300 followers. The purpose is for the world to discover new and exciting blogs! I never thought of my blog as exciting... that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, hehe!

What are the rules?

  • You must link back to the blogger who nominated you.
  • If you are nominated, write 11 random facts about yourself and answer the 11 questions your nominator came up for you :)
  • Create 11 new questions and nominate 11 other blogs! :D
Let's get started...

11 Random Facts about Emmy
1. I don't have a middle name. 
2. I love food! All kinds. Sushi, pizza, spaghetti, cake. I had a dream last night about cake, actually...
3. I'm too lazy to clean my room. I do like to organize makeup, nail polish, and other beauty products :)
4. I was the kid in elementary school with glasses. Yep, that was me.
5. I've been to Disneyland way too many times. DisneyWorld... once.
6. I like fuzzy socks and feeling warm. 
7. I've never gone camping before. I'm waiting for Jon to take me, hehe.
8. I've never met another Emmy.
9. I have giggling fits. A lot. 
10. I had a lot of blogs before, but they were unsuccessful, so I deleted it.
11. I happen to like my pale skin and honey brown-colored eyes :)

Lainey's Questions for Me
1. What is your favorite beauty product?
I haven't found the perfect makeup or hair product yet... just things that I admire. The first thing that comes to mind is my Clinique moisturizer and Clean & Clear cleanser, which both are more skincare items.

2. Do you have a favorite blog to read?
I really like Lainey's (har har har) and a few other blogs... which I will nominate below ;)

3. What is the #1 thing you hope to accomplish in 2013?
Probably get into the Health Science program at my university. It's my priority right now. Blogging is important too, but I need to get into that program!

4. What's your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
Well, I don't really like being in the rain, so I like to stay in. I've never done this, but I would like to watch movies and drink hot chocolate with the fireplace burning! :)

5. Would you rather read the book or see the movie?
I don't think I've done a book-movie combination before, so I can't really answer this question.

6. Heels, Wedges, or Flats?
I don't really like wedges and heels are so gorgeous, but I like to keep my feet in the comfy-zone, so... flats it is!

7. Do you use any social networking sites to promote your blog? If so, what are they?
I actually don't... the only promoting I do is leaving my link on other blogs :P

8. If you could only wear one color for the next 10 years, what would it be?
Hmm, probably black. It's so versatile!

9. On average, how many pageviews does your blog get per day?
Maybe close to 100. I've only had my blog since July and it's still growing :)

10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I like California. Northern California. What city? Undecided.

11. How long does it take you to write a blog post, including pictures and editing?
Okay, this post is taking the longest. And I've paused and come back a number of times. Usually my posts take about 15-20 minutes. 

Who do I nominate? (Random order)
This might be a little hard for me to come up with 11, because I don't follow a lot of blogs...

Okay, that's all I got... unless I can nominate Lainey, even though she was nominated today! ;)

    These were fun questions! Did you know that you can add the award button to your blog?

    1. Hi Lainey,

      Thanks for answering my Qs :) You should take pics of the makeup vanity! :D

      Yes, I saw the award on your blog, but then some people don't post it on their blogs, so I haven't decided yet, lol. And one of the blogs I follow, she has been nominated this award 3 years in one year :P

    2. I've thought about taking pics of it but a) people will see my reflection in the mirror, LOL and b) I don't want people to think I'm bragging. So I'm still undecided...

      The good thing about having it on your blog is that it lets people know that you've already got the award, but of course, people can get the award more than once.

    3. I wouldn't care too much if someone thought I was bragging :P They'll get over it in a bit. Maybe hide the mirror part? Unless it's a lot of mirror, lol.

      Oh okay, good point Lainey :)
