The 2017 Liebster Award Tag || My Favourite Blog

My favourite blog has to be icecreamandclara.co.uk by Elizabeth, I first came across her blog when she commented on one of my very first blog posts and I am so happy to have discovered her blog because it is absolutely beautiful! Her photography is so dreamy and I really love her vintage and romantic feel to her blog, as it is very pink and her colour theme throughout her blog is only something you can dream of, as I find it so difficult to keep to my modern and monochrome theme myself and she does it so effortlessly! She is so, so lovely and she truly deserves all the followers she has on her blog because of how much detail and effort that goes into each of her blog posts! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, I really would highly recommend that you pay hers a visit!

The 2017 Liebster Award Tag || 11 Facts About Me

I’m a British-born Chinese, so that means I’m bilingual and speak both Chinese (Cantonese) and English.

I studied Biology, Chemistry, Geography and Psychology at A-Level.

I work in a Pharmacy despite really wanting to pursue a dream doing some sort of Graphic Design job.

I absolutely love visiting aquariums, so myself and my boyfriend have made it a quest to visit all of the Sea Life’s around the UK.

I have the worst memory out of everyone I know.

I literally binge watch all paranormal and horror movies even though I still haven’t found any that I can say are my favourite because none of them scare me enough to give me nightmares.

I love dying my hair from chocolate brown to blonde because my plain black hair gets pretty boring after a while.

I am an online shopaholic, as stated by my blog name!

I used to dream of being a Graphic Designer or Interior Designer.

I have never watched any of the Harry Potter movies and I refuse to watch Disney movies because I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy more than a ‘girly girl’, so I don’t believe in fairytales.

I’m scared of heights in the aspect that I won’t go on rollercoasters, but I will happily stand at the top of a tall building or tall mountain and look down and it won’t bother me.

The 2017 Liebster Award Tag || Jessica’s Questions

“What is your number one thing to do on your bucket list?”

I’ve always been very much into travelling and I would love to say that my number one thing on my bucket list is to travel to all of the seven continents at least once in my lifetime (Antarctica might be a bit harder to achieve). I’ve already been to Asia, Europe, and North America already, so in the future, I may adjust my number one on my bucket list to something a bit narrower.

“Do you have a favourite quote or life motto?”

This one is a tough one…I guess my current favourite life motto is…

‘Design a life that you will love’

Which is one of the main reasons I made some wall art with this quote on as I believe that you’re in charge of your own life and you can create a life that you can enjoy to its fullest. The design part of the quote links with my creative side of my personality.

“What is your perfect pizza?”

My perfect pizza has to include Dominos because it’s basically the only pizza I eat. I always have the Meateor in a medium size, which is a BBQ base pizza (I dislike tomato sauce on pizzas now) and I normally have the reduced fat cheese, ground beef, mushrooms, pineapple and pork meatballs.

“If you could wake up tomorrow in the body of someone else, who would you pick and what would you do?”

I’d love to wake up as Shay Mitchell, who is best known as Emily from Pretty Little Liars. She is one of the prettiest humans and literally every single picture of her is always flawless. Her Snapchat is literally goals because she’s always in a different paradise. I would simply love to be her for a week just to get to travel to all of the tropical places she gets to go to for her photo shoots and holidays.

“What is the most random thing that you’ve ever watched all the way through on Netflix?”

I don’t actually have Netflix anymore because my binging on TV shows got too excessive. But, when I was on holiday in Las Vegas in the summer of last year, me and my mum binged-watched Young and Hungry when we got in after a long day of travelling around just purely because we didn’t know what to watch.

“What is something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?”

With everyone being at university, working or don’t have the money to go travelling, I really want to go solo-travelling to places I’ve always wanted to go whilst I’m still young and have the most disposable amount of money before I get to an age where I have to worry about paying the bills, the mortgage, funding children, etc. but the idea of travelling on my own is absolutely frightening because I literally go everywhere with my family or my boyfriend, so I don’t have any plans to do that anytime soon, although it is always a thought that crosses my mind (so if anyone is wanting to travel, drop me a message *hint, hint*).

“Gin, vodka, or tequila?”

I’m not really much of a big drinker, but out of all of them, it’ll have to be vodka, as that is the most common alcohol that I have in mixers or cocktails.

“What drives you to do what you do? What motivates you?”

I think the one thing that drives me to work so hard in life is because I want to make my parents proud of me. I am just motivated by the idea that if I work really hard I can achieve anything I want in life and I don’t want to depend on anyone, as I am quite independent in the sense that it gives me a sense of achievement when I know I worked hard to save for something I wanted for example rather than asking my parents to pay for everything.

“What is your favourite physical attribute about yourself?”

I’ve always been quite insecure about my physical appearance, so answering questions like this are quite tough because I’m quite hard on myself. I suppose my favourite physical attribution is my hair because it is the one thing I get complimented on the most by people I know and strangers.

“Do you believe in ghosts?”

Yes I do, I’m quite into my paranormal shows and films, so I guess I have to believe that some aspect of it is true.

“What was the last photo you took on your phone? Care to share?”

The last thing I took on my phone was a picture of the Razer Project Valerie concept, because I was sharing it with my boyfriend as he loves the brand and it’s a multi-screen laptop, since he likes to do his uni work, play some game on Steam whilst also watching YouTube, so the concept would be great for someone like him.
