Liebster award! Get to know me better










This time we have a post that is a bit different than my usual everyday posts. It's Liebster award post! I was nominated by lovely Milijana from in-love-with-art.blogspot.com. If you've never heard of Liebster award, it was made to attract attention to new blogs and to help blogs find new readers and bloggers to connect with each other. When you receive a nomination, here's what you need to do:

-write 11 facts about yourself
-answer to 11 questions from the person who nominated you
-choose and nominate 11 new blogs and let them know about the nomination, you can't nominate the person who nominated you
-write 11 question for the bloggers you are nominating

So here are the facts about me:

1. I am studying art history and I love art, that's why I decided to do art inspiration posts every Sunday.
2. I have a serious coffee addiction, I always crave it and I probably drink way more coffee than I should.
3. My favourite type of shoes is a black leather ankle boot with medium heel. It's the type of shoe I think looks the best, is the most comfortable and is the easiest to walk in (these in the photo above are from Asos, post about my newest shoes from Asos coming up soon).
4. I get my fashion inspiration mainly from TV shows, movies and music videos. After I saw Carrie in one episode of Sex and the city wearing a some sort of triangle top I sewed it from a scarf. I bought my Sam Edelman Gillian boots because they reminded me of boots Shirley from Garbage wore in a video for I'm only happy when it rains. Once I was watching Bridget Jones diaries and in the scene where they are showing Hugh Grant filming TV program in Italy a girl he was talking with was wearing these most incredible 90s sunglasses. I searched for months until I found sunglasses like that (photo above).
5. My guilty pleasures are cheesy pop songs from the 80's like Brother Louie, when I start listening to them I can't stop.
6. If I had to choose a time in the past to live in, I would choose 1970s or 1980s.
7. I love thrift shopping and the excitement when I find a great vintage piece.
8. My favourite colours are black, white and red.
9. I adore bobble baths, I find them so relaxing and I seriously think I couldn't live without them.
10. My favourite tea is chamomile tea with a bit of honey. If I want to make it even more relaxing I add St. John's wort tea in the mixture as well.
11. I love salty snacks much more then I love sweets, I could never live without salty junk food, but I would probably menage just fine without sweets.


Answers to questions from Milijana (in-love-with-art.blogspot.com)

1) Why did you create your blog?
The main reason was because I wanted to write about all the lovely products I used and to share my love about them. I was toying with the idea of making my own blog for a while and then one day I just decided that's the day I'm writing my first blog post, so I took the pictures and posted my first post.
2) What's your favourite travel destination?
Paris definitely! I love Paris, it's one of my favourite cities in the whole world. Amsterdam is my second favourites and I also liked San Francisco a lot.
3) What's your favourite childhood memory?
It has to be the one time I convinced my sister the room will turn into a fairytale castle if she covers everything with baby powder. She did and because I knew it was my fault I tried to help her clean it up and we made a bigger mess. Our Mum wasn't even angry, she was genuinely shocked when she saw us in the middle of a completely white room trying to wipe the floor with soaking wet cloth diapers. My sister was sweet as sugar, covered from head to toe in baby powder with a pacifier in her mouth wiping the floor.
4) What's your favourite domestic blog?
I love Moiminnie, I think she is one of the best Serbian bloggers (although her blog is in English). From beauty blogs I read SuperNovaKozmetika the most.
5) What's the thing you like the least about blogging?
Most of the time I like everything about blogging, sometimes I get annoyed if my photos aren't turning out the way I imagined or if I don't have time to write a blog post but I want to keep up with my routine of posting everyday.
6) What inspires you the most?
If the question is only about blogging, I get inspired when I read an interesting article or a blog post, or while I'm doing my makeup, cooking, going through my makeup...
7) Favourite food?
Pizza, I could eat it every day.
8) The best movie?
La meglio gioventu (The best of youth). It is very long (six hours I think) but it's the best movie I ever watched.
 9)The best international blog?
Advanced style is my favourite. I used too love Elin Kling, she is just too commercial now. Well, who am I kidding, I still love her, although I loved her more before. From beauty blogs I like Viviannadoesmakeup a lot.
10) Favourite photo?
My favourite photo of all times is one of my sister and I in front of our house in Serbian countryside, washing something. During our childhood our Dad took a lot of great pictures of my sister, brother and I and this is my absolute favourite. I keep the original photo on my bedside table. Photo is above, I'm on the left.
11) Favourite piece of jewelry?
This changes from time to time, I usually like one piece of jewelry for a while and wear it all the time, then switch to something else and so on. However, there is a special piece in my collection, it's the necklace my great grandmother got as a gift from my great grandfather. Later my Mum gave it to me. I don't wear it that much but it's my most precious piece of jewelry (picture is above).

Now it's time for my questions for nominated bloggers:

1) If you could live in the past, which period would you choose?
2) What's your guilty pleasure?
3) What was your worse makeup disaster?
4) Which fashion trend you wish you didn't follow?
5) What did you learn from blogging?
6) If you could write a guest post for one blog which one would you pick?
7) Would you rather travel to the future or to the past?
8) Did you ever see a movie sequel that was as good as first part?
9) What's the last book you read?
10) Bold lips or smokey eye?
11) Dewy finish of matte face?

That's all, I hope this post helped to get to know me better. I had so much fun writing it. All the bloggers I nominate are listed at the end of the post. If you have any questions leave them in the comments.

Until the next post,

Jelena

Ovog puta imamo post koji je malo drugačiji od mojih svakodnevnih postova. U pitanju je Liebster award post! Mene je nominovala divna Milijana sa in-love-with-art.blogspot.com bloga. Ako nikada niste čuli za Liebster award, ona je izmišljena da bi se privukla pažnja na nove blogove, pomoglo blogovima da pronađu nove čitaoce i da se povežu među sobom. Evo šta treba da uradite kad ste nominovani:

-napišite 11 činjenica o sebi
-odgovorite na 11 pitanja koja je postavila osoba koja vas je nominovala
-izaberite i nominujte 11 blogova i obavestite ih o nominaciji, ne možete nominovati osobu koja je vas nominovala
-napišite svojih 11 pitanja za blogere koje vi nominujete

I evo su činjenice o meni:

1. Studiram istoriju umetnosti i obožavam umetnost, zato sam odlučila da pišem postove sa umetničkom inspiracijom svake nedelje.
2. Ozbiljno sam zavisna od kafe, uvek mi se pije i verovatno pijem mnogo više kafe nego što bi trebalo.
3. Omiljeni model cipela su mi crne kožne čizmice do članaka sa štiklom srednje veličine. To je model cipela za koji mislim da najbolje izgleda, najudobnije su i najlakše se hoda u njima (ove na slici iznad su sa Asos-a, post o mojim najnovijim cipelama sa Asos-a ću objaviti uskoro).
4. Modna inspiracija su mi najčešće serije, filmovi i spotovi. Kada sam videla neku vrstu trouglaste bluze koju je Keri nosila u jednoj epizodi Seksa i grada sašila sam istu bluzu od marame. Kupila sam svoje Sam Edelman Gillian čizme  jer su me podsetile na čizme koje je Širli iz grupe Garbage nosila u spotu za I'm only happy when it rains. Jednom sam dok sam gledala Dnevnike Bridžit Džouns (u sceni kada pokazuju emisiju koju je lik Hjua Granta snimao u Italiji) videla najneverovatnije naočare za sunce iz 90-ih koje je nosila devojka sa kojom je pričao. Mesecima sam tražila takve naočare dok ih nisam našla (njihova slika je iznad).
5. Moje tajno zadovoljstvo su cheesy pesme iz 80-ih kao Brother Louie, kada počnem da ih slušam ne mogu da prestanem.
6. Ako bih morala da izaberem period iz poršlosti u kome bih živela, izabrala bih sedamdesete ili osamdesete godine prošlog veka.
7. Obožavam da kupujem u second hand randjama i uzbuđenje kada pronađem neki sjajan vintage komad.
8. Omiljene boje su mi crna, bela i crvena.
9. Mnogo volim da se opuštam u kadi, toliko me opuštaju duge kupke, mislim da ne bih mogla da živim bez njih.
10. Omiljeni čaj mi je kamilica sa malo meda. Ako hoću da napravim još više opuštajući čaj dodam i kantarion u mešavinu.
11. Volim slane grickalice mnogo više nego slatkiše, nikada ne bih mogla da živim bez slane nezdrave hrane, ali verovatno bih mogla bez slatkiša.

Odgovori na Milijanina pitanja (in-love-with-art.blogspot.com)

1) Zbog čega si napravila blog?
Glavni razlog je zato što sam želela da pišem o svim divnim proizvodima koje koristim i da podelim svoju ljubav prema njima. Zanimala sam se idejom o pravljenju bloga neko vreme i jednog dana sam samo odlučila da je to dan kada pišem prvi post pa sam slikala fotografije i objavila svoj prvi post.
2) Omiljena destinacija za putovanje?
Definitivno Pariz! Volim Pariz, to je jedan od mojih omiljenih gradova na celom svetu. Amsterdam mi je na drugom mestu, a San Francisko mi se takođe jako svideo.
3) Koja ti je najdraža uspomena iz detinjstva?
To je sigurno događaj kada sam ubedila sestru da će se soba pretvoriti u zamak iz bajke ako pokrije celu sobu puderom za bebe. Ona je to stvarno uradila i pošto sam znala da je to moja krivica probala sam da joj pomognem da počisti i napravile smo još goru situaciju. Naša mama nije čak ni bila ljuta, bila je iskreno šokirana kad nas je videla u sred bele sobe kako pokušavamo da obrišemo pod mokrim platnenim pelenama. Moja sestra je bila slatka kao šećer dok pokrivena puderom od glave do pete, sa sve dudom u ustima, energično briše pod.
4) Koji ti je najdraži domaći blog?
Volim Moiminnie, mislim da je ona jedna od najboljih srpskih blogerki (iako joj je blog na engleskom). Od blogova o lepoti najviše čitam blog SuperNovaKozmetika.
5) Koja ti je najneomiljenija stvar kod blogovanja?
Uglavnom volim sve kod blogovanja, ponekad se nerviram ako mi slike ne ispadaju kako sam želela ili ako nemam vremena da napišem post a želim da ostanem u svojoj rutini svakodnevnog postovanja.
6) Šta te inspiriše najviše?
Ako je pitanje vezano za blogovanje, inspiriše me kada pročitam interesantan članak ili post na nekom blogu, dok se šminkam, kuvam, sređujem šminku...
7) Omiljena hrana?
Pica, mogla bih da je jedem svakog dana.
8) Najbolji film?
La meglio gioventu (Najbolje od mladosti). Dosta je dugačak (mislim čak šest sati) ali to je najbolji film koji sam ikada gledala.
9) Najbolji strani blog?
Advanced style mi je omiljeni. Ranije sam volela Elin Kling, ali sada je previše komercijalizovala svoj blog. Ma, da se ne zavaravam, i dalje je volim, ali mi se više svidjala ranije. Što se tiče blogova o lepoti jako mi se svidja Viviannadoesmakeup.
10) Omiljena fotografija?
Moja omiljena fotografija svih vremena je ona na kojoj moja sestra i ja ispred naše kuće u selu peremo nešto. Naš tata je slikao dosta sjajnih fotografija na kojima smo moja sestra, brat i ja i ovo je ona koja mi je najomiljenija. Originalnu sliku držim na stočiću pored kreveta. Fotografija je iznad, ja sam levo.
11) Omiljeni komad nakita?
To se menja s vremena na vreme, obično obožavam jedan komad nakita neko vreme i stalno ga nosim, onda se prebacim na neki drugi i tako u krug. Ipak, imam jedan poseban komad u svojoj kolekciji, to je ogrlica koju je moja prababa dobila na poklon od mog pradede. Kasnije je moja mama dala meni. Ne nosim je mnogo i čuvam je k'o oči u glavi, to mi je najdragoceniji komad nakita (fotografija ogrlice je iznad). 

I došli smo do mojih pitanja za nominovane blogerke:

1) Kada bi mogla da živiš u prošlosti, koji bi period izabrala?
2) Šta je tvoje tajno zadovoljstvo?
3) Koje je tvoje najgore izdanje što se šminke tiče?
4) Koji modni trend se kaješ što si propratila?
5) Šta si naučila iz blogovanja?
6) Kada bi mogla da napišeš post kao gost na nečijem blogu, koji bi blog izabrala?
7) Da li bi radije putovala u budućnost ili u prošlost?
8) Da li si ikada pogledala drugi deo filma koji je bio jednako dobar kao prvi?
9) Koja je poslednja knjiga koju si pročitala?
10) Jak karmin ili smokey eye?
11) Sjajna koža ili mat lice?

To bi bilo sve, nadam se da vam je ovaj post pomogao da me malo bolje upoznate. Ja sam se mnogo zabavila pišući ga. Sve blogerke koje sam ja nominovala su na kraju ovog posta. Ako imate neka pitanja slobodno ih ostavite u komentarima.

Do sledećeg posta,

Jelena
