Lots of Liebsters!

Over the past week or so, I've been nominated for the Liebster award by FIVE awesome bloggers! I am so flattered and thankful that they all chose to spotlight my blog! It is almost unbelievable. If you are looking for new and interesting blogs please check these guys out:
  • The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to other bloggers with 200 followers or less
  • The nominees must link back to the blogger who awarded them
  • You must write 11 random facts about yourself and answer the 11 questions from the blogger who nominated you
  • Make up 11 new questions and nominate 11 other bloggers
(I modified the rules a bit. I answered some of the nominators' questions as my 11 "random facts", then answered Sam's questions, since he was the first to nominate me.)

11 Facts: 

1. Like Sam, who nominated me, I'm often mistaken for Italian or Latina, but I am mostly of Irish/German ancestry.
2. My dream job is teaching college.
3. I can't live without coffee!
4. If I could switch places with a fictional character, I'd be Jan Di from "Boys Over Flowers" :-)
5. My music taste is SO random. I like music from all times and places. Two of my favorite groups are Big Bang and Aventura.
6. I only read fiction in Spanish (because it helps me study) I've been working my way through the Twilight and Harry Potter series in Spanish.
7. I would rather travel to the past for a day than the future.
8. My favorite way to relax after work is skyping with my boyfriend.
9. As a kid I always dreamed of being a model...I loved the the idea of that glamorous lifestyle! Too bad I turned out to be only 5ft tall!
10. I'm left-handed. I had terrible hand writing as a kid, but I practiced and when I was in my early teens I always got compliments on how nice my writing was. Now, as an adult, I barely write anything, and my handwriting is back to a being a sloppy mess.
11. Summer is my favorite season.

Sam's 11 Questions:

1) What is your favourite childhood memory? 
Playing on my block with my sister and my 2 best friends.

2) Your favourite place in the world and why?
I think every place has it's own unique charm. I think who you are with matters more than where you are, but I am always happiest when I'm at the beach or by the water.

3) Where you see yourself in 10 years time?
I see myself as a successful educator, entrepreneur, author, and speaker living the good life in a gorgeous city surrounded by friends. And my passport will be full of stamps!

4) A post you enjoyed writing the most?
I have lots of fun creating polyvore sets.

5) If you could meet any celebrity, who would it be?
Big Bang, because they are one of my favorite music groups, and soooo cute!

6) Your most played song in Itunes?
No Woman No Cry by Bob Marley. Not the version you probably know from the Legend album, the original album version which is faster and more upbeat. I have always found this song to be so soothing and beautiful. I love how it deals with moving on in life, but always remembering where you came from.

7) Favourite TV show?
I love Fashion Police..Joan Rivers is insane!

8) One beauty product you could never live without?
BB Cream

9) Your ideal meal?
I love any kind of fish.

10) If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy?
A plane ticket!

11) One place you've always wanted to visit and why?
Tokyo, because it has always seemed like the coolest city on earth to me!
