Liebster Award #2 and #3

HELLO GUYS! :D I'm finally finished uni for the semester, and now on Christmas holidays. I have a lab report, a critical review and some research for my library project to do over the holidays, but I should have time do more posts now :)

During my time of studying/AWOL, I got nominated for 2 more Leibster awards :) One from nailsat2am and readbakestitch. This now entails me answering LOTS of questions, so this is a pretty text heavy post! I could've just picked a mix of questions from both of them, but i liked all the questions so...yeah :p Jumpt ot the end to see who I've nominated and what questions I'm aksing!

So the point is for the 11 people you nominate (they must have less than 200 followers) have to answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you, post 11 random facts about yourself, and ask your nominees 11 questions.

Questions from Readbackstitch

1. What is your favourite book?
To be honest, I only ever read when I'm on holiday which isn't that often :(
 Even though Hunger Games and Harry Potter are the obvious good reads, my one true fave has to be Lessons For A Sunday Father. I can't remember the author, but it's not a known book. It's aout a father/husband who makes a mistake and cheats on his wife, and the evens that unfold when divorce involves young children. It just rings true to me as I rarely see my father and I would only see him one day a week at point, also the layout is different in that each chapter is from a different person's perspective, and the author changed her writing style to fit the mannerisms of a teenage boy, a young girl, a mother and a father. 

2. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?
Somewhere warm and sunny. A cold, rainy Scotland is not were an Asian should be LOL. I've decided on emigrating when I'm older and have enough money but not sure where yet! Maybe Texas since it seems to be warm even in the colder months?

3. What's your guilty pleasure song? Be honest, everyone has one!
Probs one of One Direction's cheesy songs. I only know 4 tbh (Live while we're young, One Thing, Kiss you and What makes you beautiful) so any of those lol

4. What's your most embarrassing moment?
Face planting onto the (busy) dancefloor when a classic 80's song came on...

5. Do you play a musical instrument? If not, what would you love to play if you could?
No I don't :( Despite being Asian, my parents never got me into the whole instrument thing :o But I would've liked to play the piano, or something really random like the ukulele :)

6. Have you got something that you have had since you were a baby?
Um, I don't think so actually!

7. If you could invite one famous person to dinner, alive or dead, who would it be?
Beyonce so I can steal some of her sass.

8. If you could eat the same thing over and over for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Potatoes...such a versatile vegetable ;)

9. What's your favourite perfume?
Anais Anais : Cacherel or Kenzo, the one with the tall red flower on the bottle. They're old lady type of scents but I love it.

10. Team Edward or Team Jacob? (Hhahahhahah!)
NEITHER. Despise Twilight and all it stands for lol.

11. What is your dream career?
I still secretly want to be a zoo keeper/work with animals. Or work in the bio/science type field to help with medications for the future.

Questions from Nailsat2am

1. Who was the first (or one of the first) nail bloggers that you came across and loved?
Sammy at TheNailasaurus, I was in awe of her skills

2. Summer or Winter?
Summer, I despise the cold. I like to think it's because I'm Asian and I'm genetically used ot better climates that drizzly Scotland :p

10. Do you eat oysters?

11. Would you consider doing nail art as a career?
