ONE FINE DAY | VBA AND LIEBSTERS

Heaps of gratitude to Danielle of Midnight Blues for awarding me with the Versatile Blog Award and a Liebster Award, and to Rikki of Young Modern Invaders  for awarding me with another Liebster!! My blog is just 4 months old and I must say that I`m proud of what my blog has already achieved, no matter how small it may be. I`ve gained a handful of friends through this blog and I wish to share this with you. (Please have the patience of scrolling down through this post as I am trying my best for this post not be boring.)

Now, I`ve compressed the 2 awards in this post — the Versatile Blog Award (VBA) and the Liebster Award. They both have different rules and I will try my best to make everything clear.

Rules for both awards are simple as giving credit to the one who awarded you, answering the questions (VBA – 7 things about yourself; Liebster – 11 questions provided by awarder), nominating another set of 11 bloggers, creating your own 11 questions to be answered by the ones you tagged, and notifying your nominees.
The VBA requires for the awarded to post 7 things about his self. Here are mine:
1.       I`m pretty vocal about my thoughts. I`m not really afraid of saying what I want, even to my parents. Some people might not like my bluntness but I can`t help but say what`s on my mind. I make sure I won`t step on anyone`s feet though. I make sure the things I say are constructive criticism and not just careless judgments.

2.       I hate watching horror/thriller movies but I love reading within the genre. In fact, I don`t read novels that are not horror, thriller, or mystery-themed. Don`t get me wrong though, I love reading — just not those sissy rom-com novels that are popular these days.

3.       I`m very much clingy to my friends. I make it a point to check on them most of the time, if not every day. You can pretty much say #sepanx is written all over my face all day, errday.

4.       Oh! You can`t fool me with those magic tricks anymore. My boyfriend`s pretty good at magic now, well, cardistry (commonly known as card tricks) and the magic that used to amaze me before, gets me bored now. “Meh, I`ve seen that already. And I can do it too! See?” — my life

5.       Send me photos, videos, gifs of dogs all you want, I won`t mind. I love each and every single one of those cute, cuddly creatures!!

6.       lol but I used to do television commercials and shows when I was younger. I stopped though because I wasn`t feeling the life of being woken up at 3am on a weekday just because there was a taping.

7.       I don`t have a favorite color. I swear. Maybe it seems that black is my favorite but it really is not. I love it though, but I can`t say I have a favorite color because every color is beautiful. No shit. So when people ask me what my favorite color is, I first ask “for what?” because it all depends on what the color is being used for. Then and there I would decide which color suits that particular thing most.
Meanwhile, The Liebster Award requires the awarded to answer questions given by the awarder.
Here are Danielle`s questions:

When and how did you start blogging?
I started blogging back in 2009 using Tumblr. It originally was for personal use but laziness got to me and it just became a blog for reblogging mostly. Then December 27, 2013 (yes, I still remember the date)came and something inside me just wanted to start a serious blog and tada! Here it is. It`s currently 4 months now — and counting!

What thing/s will describe you the most?
Things? Well… Uh. Things? I can`t think of any particular object but I really like clothes and food and magazines. And dogs. And just really pretty, fancy-schmancy things. My answer is so not helpful, smh.

Who is/are the person/s you can't live without?
My mother, my best friends, and my boyfriend. And my dog, George.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
France, United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, Italy — YEAH OKAY EUROPE. The US. Brazil. JAPAN!! India and South Africa. Egypt too.

If there's a chance you'll have a power for one day, what would it be and what will you do with it?
Being an avid-reader of conspiracy theories, I cannot decide fully which power I would like to acquire even just for a day. If I base it on my fondness for the tv series Heroes, I will say phasing which is the ability of a mortal to pass through solid objects. But I`d really love to read people`s thoughts too!

Are you willing to do anything for someone you love? Why?
Eh, it depends lol but most probably that`s a yes. If it`s my mother we`re talking about, I`m willing to die just to save her.

Do you believe that even the most intelligent person can be fooled when it comes to love?
“Fooled” is such a strong word. I`m assuming most of our lives revolve around love. Love can be defined in many ways though. Love can also be towards your craft, or towards spiritual belief. Love doesn`t just mean being romantically in love with another person. Sometimes, all you need is love to get by. Without love, nothing is complete. (HAHAHAHA hello, Ms. Universe)

Describe your type of friend.
My type of friend would be someone who is willing to try new things with me and is someone whom I can talk to anything about with #nofilters. My best friend and I talk about anything you could imagine. That`s the friendship I want to keep: full of honesty and helluva fun.

What kind of music do you listen to?
I mostly listen to metal, pop punk, hardcore, hiphop, r&b and EDM. Exact opposites but I make it work.

Which will you prefer as gifts, material or written letters?
Written letters! Anything handmade is the perfect gift.

What is your favorite food?
Anything edible *wink kidding! I love lasagna, ice cream and peanuts with toasted garlic, yaaas. I also like dipping anything into ice cream like isaw (chicken intestines) HEHEHE they taste good, I swear.
Here are Rikki`s questions:

Which superhero would you most want to be?
I really like Poison Ivy. She`s too damn hot.

If you found yourself in a battle to the death, which supernatural creature would you prefer to fight: a. vampire, b. zombie, c. werewolf?
Probably a zombie? Just double tap that mofo and it`s dead..

If your life was a movie, which would it be?
Ha, I don`t really know but it`s either Almost Famous, Mean Girls or Coach Carter. Or The Devil Wears Prada.

Favourite book?
Hard to choose between Dan Brown and Dean Koontz`s works but I have to say Songof Kali by Dan Simmons
hehe *peace!

Would you rather be rich or famous?
I`d rather be rich. Fame can be a 15-minute, one-hit-wonder thing but money, when handled wisely, could go a long way.

It’s movie night, what flick do you choose: Pretty Woman, Fight Club or Halloween?
A tie between Fight Club and Halloween.

Favourite brand of make-up?
Smashbox! From their foundations to their eyeliners to their primers, Smashbox hasn`t failed me yet.

Favourite actor/actress and why?
Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp and well, Leo DiCaprio. I love love love Cate Blanchett too. They`re all masters of their craft. Need I say more?

Favourite TV show?
Skins. I wrote about that here. 

 Favourite line from a movie?
“..And my axe!” —Gimli

Jeans or dresses?
Dresses! The ratio of me wearing a dress over jeans is 6:2

MY QUESTIONS FOR YOU
Why do you blog?
Where do you see yourself 5-10 years from now?
If you could choose another person to manage your blog, who would it be and why?
Who is/are your style icons/life heroes?
What`s so great about 2013?
If the world is literally coming to end tomorrow, what would you do for your remaining 24 hours?
I`m giving you a one-way ticket to anywhere in the world. Where would you go?
If you could wear only one color for the rest of your life, from head to toe, what color is it and why?
Which do you prefer: lots of acquaintances or a very few but great friends?
What is #1 on your bucket list?
Top 3 artists you could listen to anytime?

On the other hand, I chopped off about 5-6 inches of my hair. I was hesitant although I`ve been thinking about chopping my mermaid hair off as it was getting heavier and I was starting to get bored of my same old hairstyle. Keeping long locks while living in a humid country was really frustrating and I`m glad my hair has more ventilation now. I`ve been getting compliments too, so I think I`ll be keeping my hair like this for quite some time ;)

As for my outfit, the dress is already in a bold shade of purple so I opted to keep the rest of my outfit in black. My fedora also complements my short `do, don`t you think?

Much love, 
Jia
