Versatile Blogger Award + Liebster Award

As some of you may know (or not), Ellie from Ellalogy nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award awhile back. Click here to check out my first post on this!

In the past month, I am so flattered to share with you guys that four wonderful beauty/lifestyle bloggers nominated me for two awards. Minni from Minni's Beauty Journey, Sakuranko, and Kat from A Piece of Mi nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award while Melissa from Bliss & Birds nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is a first! I follow all of their blogs and personally love each and one of them. Check them out if you haven't already!

------------------------------------------------------------------

Versatile Blogger Award

Rules
- If you are nominated, you've been awarded the Versatile Blogger award
- Thank the person who gave you this award
- Include a link to their blog
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you've recently discovered or follow regularly
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award with a link to their blog
- Finally, tell 7 things about yourself

Seven Things About Myself
1. I don't really like candy but I can't live without dessert!
2. I'm a big scared-y cat
3. Marco blames me for turning him into a picky eater. I guess that says a lot about me...
4. I always try to have a positive outlook in life and organization, planning and yoga plays a big part in that.
5. I always have this urge to fix peoples eyebrows! Whether it's undone or tinted badly... I can't help it :(
6. I try to eat healthy but I obviously don't.
7. It's usually the daughter borrowing her mom's makeup but things are a bit different in my family. My mom never wears makeup and never has but I've sort of converted and taught her so lately she's been wearing more makeup (and barging in my room to use my vanity)! Haha not complaining though.

11 Questions from Bliss & Birds
1. What made you want to start blogging?
I just wanted to be productive with my life! I don't like the idea of wasting time and I have high hopes of being successful in the future. I know that I want my future career to be involved in the things I love which are beauty and food so I thought why not start now? Plus there are many perks of being a blogger, and I know I'll learn a lot from it.
2. When you're not blogging, what do you do for fun?
Spending time with my boyfriend and/or friends. I see Marco a couple of times a week and me and my barakada (group of friends) try to see each other as often as we can. 
3. What are your career plans for the future?
No specific plans yet, just finish my 5 year and two term double degree course and see where life takes me! I definitely wanna be in the food, beauty or fashion industry though that's for sure.
4. What's your favorite candy?
I don't really like candy... Do the dark chocolate almond clusters from See's count?
5. Best book you've read recently?
I can't remember the last time I read a book but I do remember liking The Happiness Project, but wasn't ever able to finish it.
6. Favorite online shopping sites?
I've never shopped on online stores from other countries actually. I don't like the idea of having to wait days and weeks for my purchase to arrive hehe talk about impatient.
7. If you had to live in a different decade other than the current one, which one would you choose?
Probably the 1950's
8. Coffee or tea?
Chai tea latte. Wish I could drink coffee without having the need to go to the bathroom after...if ya know what I mean.
9. How many pairs of shoes do you have?
Around 30 
10. What is your favorite social media site?
Instagram!
11. Favorite quote?
Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.

    1. Of course Shayne!! My favorite yoga studio is Yoga+ they have two branches at the moment, one in Ortigas and one in Fort. They're opening another branch soon in Makati though in Salcedo, and they're having some really good promos cause they're about to open pa lang on the 23rd! It's a bit expensive but they have lots of promos available like packages for first timers, discount for students, and a lot of promos now for the Salcedo branch. Even without the discount though I'd still go this studio since its walking distance from my place and everything's available there already including a water dispenser, towels and clean showers. So you won't have to worry about bringing anything but an empty water jug and clothes to change in to and some toiletries. Check their website and my post on it, ands just tweet me if you have more questions! :)

    2. They also have different types of yoga plus the staff and instructors are all really friendly!

    3. i think i want to try the heated yoga classes, but for 60mins only, parang 90 mins is too long, no? ^^ the price is actually lower than i expected. i thought the costs for the classes are around 4k + . too bad its only in makati or fort, i live in the south and its too far from me :( next next week after my medications i can exercise again. ill ask my doctor and maybe a yoga instructor which program is good for me, thanks so much jessica! :)
