Wow I just found out recently that I’ve been nominated for Liebster award by Dynamite Does Nails! That’s really nice. Thanks! So, what’s the deal? And what is a Liebster award? Frankly, I’ve never heard of it before. Basically, it is given to beginning bloggers (like myself :D) who have less than 200 subscribers. liebster award

The rules are quite simple:

  • Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves
  • Each blogger should answer the questions the tagger has set for you.
  • Pick eleven new bloggers to award the Liebster award to and link them in your post.
  • Pick eleven new questions for the chosen bloggers.
  • Go to that bloggers page and tell them about the award.
  • No tag-backs.

And now to the fun part! The 11 random facts about me…hmm I already did an ‘about me’ video where mentioned 20 random facts about me, but I guess it doesn’t count :) hehe. Not to repeat myself, here are another 11 random facts:

  1. I am always cold
  2. I have moved 9 times in the past 10 years
  3. I have lived in 3 different countries
  4. One time when I was a child I ate snow and ice not to go to school (and I did succeed, I was sick like a dog so DON’T do that :D)
  5. People often thought I was a boy when I was little
  6. I love cheese
  7. My fiance and I have family in 6 different countries
  8. I used to be a semi-pro dancer
  9. I love Russian ballet
  10. Sometimes I feel like a computer geek when I’m trying to fix a mistake on my website (and I’m really proud of myself when I get something fixed!)
  11. “Hi, I’m Anna and I’m addicted to makeup” :D

Now the answers to questions that Dynamite Does Nails asked:

Why did you decide to start blogging?

I guess because I wanted to share my experience with people! I think I have something to say other bloggers don’t. That comes partially because of my really international background, I love watching the differences between how people in different countries do their makeup and take the best out of all of them.

Have you ever tripped and fallen in public?

Oh yeah…but you know what, I am not like other people, I was almost never ashamed, I just thought it was so funny that I couldn’t stop laughing after :D

What was your first pet?

A dog! It was a huge one. Her name was Ayna. I was three and I used to ride her as a horse. Don’t worry, she loved it, too.

Favorite movie?

Difficult one! That’s because mostly I forget the names of the movies I’ve watched really quickly. My fiance and me, it often goes like that: he: “have you seen movie X?” me: “no..I guess”. We start watching this movie X and after like 15 minutes me “oh wait, I’ve already seen this one, now I remember!” lol

What is the most expensive beauty item you have splurged on?

In the absolute terms – my La Prairie Caviar Foundation. Even though I bought it with 75% discount.

Would you eat something totally gross for a Million Dollars?


Where you build your dream home?

Close to the sea, nice tropical climat throughout the whole year…

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I would love to have more patience :D

Were you bullied or picked on in school?


What is your favorite flower?

Roses! So standard but yet it is true. I love white and red ones. Oh and I absolutely adore iris. The way they smell…fantastic!
