5| You must tell your nominees that they have been nominated by you


What is your favourite season and why?
I live in Singapore so sadly, I don't get to experience the seasons but if I were living somewhere else, I probably would love summer or autumn - summer because it's the season for the blooming of flowers and the weather is sunny and encouraging, autumn because I just really crave for the crunching sound of dried leaves and the look of pavements browned or yellowed by a blanket of crispy, fallen leaves.

What 5 makeup products can't you live without?
Haha I don't wear make up, but do own a few so I shall just list them here since they almost fit the limit (+1):
In a clockwise direction: Topshop "Sunbeam" Highlighter, Nivea Fruity Shine Pink Guava, Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in No. 15 Pudgy Peony, Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipstick Matte 010 Wine Not, Revlon Colorburst™ Lip Butter 035 Candy Apple, Lancome Paris Sparkling Cherub Sheer Warming Illuminating Powder

What is your favourite genre of music and what artist do you like?
God... music questions always catch me in the worst way - I find it the hardest thing to explain the kind of music I like, unlike others who can just simply say a particular genre! I actually don't mind all musics, except the occasional flouncy superficial and meaningless pop songs I guess. Basically, trying to break it down, I would say I like alternative music (rock/pop/folk), musicals (broadway, frozen, hairspray, that thingamajib), electronic, R&B.....
You could follow me on Spotify or 8tracks if you'd like to! I'd love to check out your playlists and music as well.

Who are you favourite bloggers?
I guess you'll find out at the end of this post and by reading my previous Liebster Award nominees? 
Also, I love:

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

Who/What inspires you?
My grandfather, flowers, tears, music, poetry, literature, smiles, light, darkness

What are your fears?
Death of a loved one, rats, lizards, crows, drowning, falling

If you only had one day to live what would you do in it?
Spend it with the people I love, skydive

What are your hobbies?
I love reading, sketching, painting with watercolours, writing letters, listening to music, watching Criminal Minds, collecting magazines and perfumes.

What qualities do you look for in those you surround yourself with (friends, family, loved ones etc..)
Someone who can smile, who cares for others, is selfless, friendly, humble, loyal and loving. 

What plans do you have for yourself?
I hope to finish my final year well with perseverance and determination, before I go off to university to study Law
