The Liebster Award

I got nominated for the Liebster Award!

I was nominated for my first ever blogger award, the Liebster Award, by the lovely Michelle from Blessings by Me. Please go check out her blog! She does mainly lifestyle stuff over there including recipes, interior decorating, crafting & personal stories from her life.

The rules here are super simple. I have to answer the 11 questions given to me by Michelle, ask 11 new questions of my own, and then nominate 11 other bloggers. So let’s do it!

  • 1. What’s your biggest fear?

Losing my mind or personhood for any possible reason (ex. dementia, Alzheimer’s, trauma, etc).

  • 2. What absolutely grosses you out?

Sandwiches with cold cuts! I know it’s weird but I’ve hated them since birth. Instead of a traditional packed lunch I used to make myself saltine cracker sandwiches with peanut butter when I was a kid. Truth is I’d rather skip a meal than eat a deli sandwich.

  • 3. What one person you would love to meet someday.

David Attenborough. (If you don’t know who he is, you should.) I feel like I could learn so much from him.

  • 4. What is your dream vacation?

Exploring the island of Santorini!

  • 5. Do you like the way you laugh?

My family has always made fun of the way I laugh, but many people have told me they love it. So I love it too!

  • 6. What advice would you give your younger self?

Don’t worry. Everything will work itself out.

  • 7. What is your favorite type of candy?

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, hands down.

  • 8. What was the best thing that happened to you yesterday?

A delicious dinner! I love a good meal.

  • 9. When were you late for something that you wished you were early for?

I don’t like to toot my own horn but I’m rarely late for things; I’m chronically early most of the time. However I was recently late to catch the train back from NYC so I had to wait around the station for ages for the next train. Boring.

  • 10. What is the one thing you love most about your bathroom?

Good water pressure!

  • 11. What is something you wish you could do but do not know how?

Oh gosh, so many. Wish I could make my own clothes, or cut my hair. I’d save so much money!

 

And here are my 11 questions:

1. What is your dream job?

2. Dog, cat, or none or the above?

3. What is your favorite book and why?

4. What is your “spirit animal”?

5. What is your favorite city in the world and why?

6. What is the one food item you could eat everyday and be perfectly happy?

7. If an alien came down to Earth and asked you to explain what love is, what would you say?

8. If you could time-travel, where & what time period would you travel to?

9. Choose one person who has passed that you could have a conversation with now.

10. What is your favorite type of blog to read?

11. What do you like to do in your down time?

 

And here are my nominations! Please go check out everyone on this list; they are so awesome.

Hi! I’m Erica, a makeup enthusiast based outside of NYC. I discovered my love of cosmetics back in 2011 when I started watching simple tutorials on YouTube. It was a revelation to me that with just a simple few swipes of mascara or dabs of blush, you could transform into a more enhanced version of yourself. My obsession has not abated over the years, but instead has grown stronger as the beauty industry has gone from strength to strength. After graduating from business school in 2018, I decided to finally share my thoughts and opinions on all things cosmetics and this is where ‘We are glamerus’ was born. I share my musings on a bi-weekly basis on everything from my holy grail products and preferred application techniques, to the latest trends overtaking the beauty world. I hope you enjoy! xo

  1. Congratulations!!!! A very well deserved award Erica! I love your answers for number 2 and 7. I am the same way, May be it’s weird but I don’t like cold things at all. Nice to know more about you via those questions.

  2. I like your answer to #1. My aunt is suffering from early dementia and to see her declining is so scary. My uncle started leaving little notes for her to remember to do things and when she realized what he was doing she got mad at him. It’s a terrible thing to watch. YES to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!! 😀

    1. I saw it happen to both my grandmothers and it was very heartbreaking. Our minds are what make us us, if you know what I mean, so I can’t imagine losing that. On a lighter note, Reese’s are life!!
