Liebster Award

Hello you lovely people!

I was tagged by Samatha from BlushingAppraisal to do the "Liebster Blog Award" questions - Thank you for that!

So here we go:
First of all of course there are rules (surprise surprise) and we shall follow them:

1. You must link back to the person who nominated you - Samantha
2. Write 11 random facts about yourself
3. Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you
4. Tag and nominate 11 people
5. Come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer
6. No tag backs

11 Random facts about me

The smell of nail polish makes me want to be a bit sick but I love the smell of fresh paint.

I like the taste of cough medicine.

Growing up I always wanted to be an Archaeologist but now I study something completely different. God knows why..

I am afraid of birds especially pigeons

When I am stressed out I bake. A lot. While studying for my "Matura" we were constantly low on flour, sugar and butter. I drove my parents crazy because I got up in the middle of the night and started to bake copious amounts of muffins and other fun things like that. I still do it when I study for an exam.

I always have hand sanitizer in my bag.

I hate cheese.

I have a thing for learning uncommon languages. Currently I'd like to learn Hindi and for 1.5 yrs I tried to learn Swedish (Not that that is a really uncommon language.. It is just uncommon for an Austrian girl to learn it. But what can I say, I love Pippi Longstocking and the funny, quirky sound of the language)

My favourite flowers are lilies of the valley.

As soon as I read the package inserts of pharmaceuticals I am convinced I will die. So I don't read them and do whatever the doctor said.

I love chocolate but I hate gummy candy

Phew. That was surprisingly difficult and not very interesting I'm afraid.. So let's move on to Samatha's questions:

1. Are you a home-body or an outdoors lover?
More of a home-body I must say...I love being outdoors but I would most likely do nothing other that sitting under a tree and reading a book. So if the weather is not nice or warm enough to do that I will be inside. Doing the same :)
2. Would you prefer a five star hotel or sleep under the stars?
Though I love luxury things I think I would sleep under the stars. I like to travel and since I am a poor student I can't afford fancy hotels and I have spent my fair share of nights in not-so-nice youth hostels. So-sleeping under the stars sounds quite fun and romantic compared to that.
3. What is your favourite number?
Hm. I have not thought about that. Maybe 29.
4. What is your most popular post?
That one. A brush haul. I did not expect that to be honest because it is by far not my favourite. I like the ones about my DIY projects because I always have a lot of fun making the things.
5. What inspires your writing?
Nothing in particular. I write about the things I'd like to read about other people and sometimes I see/read/hear things that take my interest and I write about that. But since my blog is so new I still have a lot of ideas left and don't really have to look for new inspiration at the moment.
6. Coffee or tea?
Tea in the morning, coffee during the day. I love both.
7. How do you feel about ageing?
Funny you should ask :) Just a few days ago I was thinking how glad I am not be 18 anymore. I am currently 22, nearly 23 and I quite like growing up and getting older and wiser. Because I really feel like I gained a lot of life perspective and I feel so much more comfortable with myself now that a few years ago. So I am not scared of ageing at the moment I like how I started to 'grow into myself' and learning to live independently.
8. What is your favourite lip balm?
Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Lipbalm
9. What designer best reflects your style?
Oh God. I really do not know. I am much more of a makeup girl than a fashion girl. I like classic styles and cuts paired with girly materials like lace and pastel colours. 
10. What is a beauty secret/tip you swear by?
Take care of your nails and lips it makes so much difference.

11. What do you do to relax?
I love to light a candle, read a good book, take a long bath or talk to my friends on the phone while sitting on my bed with my pj's on.
