The Fabulous Leibster Award

The leibster award is basically an award that promotes other blogs their are no technical prizes besides the prize of receiving more attention for your blog. 

How the leibster award works is that you are first nominated by someone. 

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by,

reveries in Horatio street

the person who nominated you comes up with 11 questions for you that you must answer but before answering them you must list 11 random facts about yourself. Then after telling your facts and answering the questions you must then nominate 11 more blogs and come up 11 questions for them and don't forget you must mention the blog that nominated you in your post.

And now for the, 

 11 things about me

  1. I am a twin. I am also the older twin by 6 minutes.
  2. I have a Yorkie named Kodi who has a major attitude problem.
  3. In the recent months i have formed a humongous obsession with mermaids. But not the Little Mermaid kind of mermaid that we learn about when we are little. No the siren kind that lures sailors to their doom. I find them really fascinating and magical. 
  4. My birthday is March 12 also known as National Girl Scout's day. 
  5. I have an incredibly messy room containing two gold fish named after famous people who lived in the 1920s. 
  6. My biggest fear is regret (i know very corny).
  7. My favorite number is 7 because the big dipper has 7 stars in its constellation.
  8. i am Irish, African American German, Caucasian,1/16 native American, and a bunch of other stuff that i really can not recall right now (sorry ancestors) but basically i am very very diverse. 
  9. A big fear of mine is to blend into a crowd, i know most people are afraid to stand out but i am the exact opposite of most people. 
  10. i have recently gotten very into painting and started painting some things my self but they're not nearly as good as the paintings of some of my favorite artists which include Edgar Degas,Vincent Van Gogh, John William, Will Cotton, Francis Bacon and Shae Acopian Detar (who is a photography who paints over her photos).
  11. I am really into vintage clothing and can't remember the last time i purchased something new. I just love the history behind used clothing wondering what connection a person might have to the piece of clothing and why they might have given it away, anyway i a make stories for each new piece i get. 
Now time for Alisa's questions

1. How would you describe your personal style?

I don't know how i would describe my style because it is to my belief that when you have found your own personal style that is true to your self and that they're no words to describe it besides that it's you. But if i had to form words for it i would say it would be lots and lots of layers, quirky at points, dressy, over the top, that word that is the opposite too "laid back", i am not going to say "vintage" because i feel next to "hipster" it is the most over used word to describe style so instead i will say inspired from by the past, and very crazy, and magical (in my opinion). Dam you tumblr for making the word vintage so misrepresented. 

2. What's your favorite book?

Gosh!!!!! Why are you asking me this it's like your asking me to choose a favourite child i have a 2 page list of my favorite books!!!!!!!! This is a cruel question but my favorite book if i had to choose one would be White Oleander by Janet Finch its really good and i just love it its basically like that child that always gets straight A's and has never gotten in trouble and also has all these awards for there great accomplishments it's hard, not to favor that child. 

3.  Tea or coffee?

That's easy tea cause coffee is a bitter little drink that my taste buds despise. 

4. Who's your favorite musician? 

i have a best friend who is obsessed with Kurt Cobain and would kill me while i am sleeping if i did not choose Nirvana, and anyway they made some good music. 

5. Which celebrity is your icon?

When it comes to icons its hard to just choose one. I have to many icons that influence my daily style i really can't choose one. A few celebrities who are my "icons" when it comes to fashion are Loulou de la Falaise, Iekeliene Stange, Elle Fanning, Audrey Hepburn, Marie Antoinette, Helen Devon Carter, Barbara Hulanicki, and the elves in the Lord of the Rings. 

6. What's on your bucket list?

A better question would be what is not on my bucket list, but some things that i have been currently trying to scratch off my bucket list is too read a bunch of the classics so i look like a good reader, to make my style more refined, to make my room worthy of the crazy creature that lives in it, to expand my closet with more vintage findies, to read the whole Lord of the Rings Series, and to volunteer at some place somewhere, for a good cause. 

7. If you could live for a year in a foreign country, where would it be?

I would live in Paris, France preferably in Montmartre (a district in Paris that's all artsy and has a big white church in the middle of it).

8.  As of right now, what are your top ten favorite songs? 

  •  Amen- Spacemen 3 
  • Life is Killing my Rock and Roll- Singapore Sling
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit- Nirvana
  • The Man Who Sold the World- Nirvana
  • Obsessions- Marina and the Diamonds
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit- Patti Smith
  • While my Guitar Gently Weeps- The Beatles
  • The A Team- Ed Sheeran
  • The Outsider- Marina and the Diamonds
  • Gene Ciampi- Twin Sister
  • Flurescent Adolescent- Artic Monkeys
  • When the sun don't Shine- Best Coast
  • Guilty- Marina and the Diamonds
  • Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off- Panic at the Disco
  • Master of the House- Les Miserables 
9.  What's your Dream Career?

My dream career would be to be the editor and chief of a a magazine, just because. But truthfully i don't know what the hec my dream career would be besides to be blissful, which i guess is very corny and is not a career 
10. Dogs or cats?

This one is hard i love both. But it really depends on the dog or the cat because i hate dogs that are so active to the point of insanity and i hate the cats that just hate humans. But i do have a dog that acts like a cat and i have met cats that have acted like dogs. 

11.  What's your favorite movie?

I hate these kinds of questions because when ever someone asks you them you blank out and think for a second what is my favorite movie and then you can't remember any of the movies that you have ever seen and it is to my opinion that if you really love a movie enough for it to be your favorite you would remember it so for right now i do not have a favourite movie yet....... Oh but i will say i love Wes Anderson movies, they're awesome. 

Now for my 11 nominees, drum roll please.....

9. (this blog was already nominatd before by my dear friend Alisa i just wanted to give her a shout out).

And their 11 questions which are just differently worded copy of Alisa's paired with kindergarten like questions because i felt the need to not be original with these questions.

1. Dog person or Cat person? 

2. What's that one song that you can never get out of your head, otherwise known as your favorite song? 

3. Favourite article of clothing in your closet currently?

4. If you could live any where in the universe (including distant planets, if you enjoy suffocating to death) where would it be? 

5. If you were stranded on an island and were only allotted 3 items what would these 3 items be? 

6. Before I die............ (not really a question but before you die what do you want to achieve) 

7. Whose style do you idolize?

8.  Whose your favourite Artist? 

9. Your Favorite book (please)?

    MASTER OF THE HOUSE! Lol chorus
    ~Emma F.

    1. MASTER of the house it just makes me shed tears i love it so much.

  2. that was fun to read sara. i also adored the book white oleander. did you read janet fitch's other book, painted black? thanks for nominating me. when i answer your questions, i will leave you a link. rock on! ;)

    1. Yes I did read Paint it Black i thought it was great but not as good as white oleander which is a shame, its always hard to write another novel after you have written something as fantastic as that, but never the less it was still good it just lacked, for me, the build up and intensity oleander had.


  3. love your answers and your facts and just everything i feel like i know you so much more even though most of the stuff you said i already knew which basically just doesn't make any sense what i just said and yeah i'm rambling now but white oleander was absolutely amazing and omg i'm actually planning on reading all the classics now like i am reading slaughterhouse five by kurt vonnegut just his name even sounds classic and i'm reading the great gatsby next and 1984 by george orwell and we should start a book club how lame but we should omg

    1. This might sound extremly weird and kind of cycic but i thought the same thing, about starting a book club, after i read your txt about white oleander, i use to belong to a book club when i was younger, it was mostly envolved crafts and such, but now that i am older and understand what i am reading i think it would be enlighting to belong to one. i really want to read the Great Gatsby since the movie is coming out and i really want to see it but i hate going to see the movie if i have not read the original book version and anyway that should most definitly be on the top of out reading list for the book club along with all the other classics. Now i am rambling but to end this excruciatingly long reply comment i shall just say i am currently reading Anna Karenina and i must agree that with the classics the authors' names really do sound classical, Leo Tolstoy how can you get more vintage sounding then that.


  4. congrats for the award and lovely post! xx
