The Liebster Awards!

This is my thinking face >_<

The Liebster Awards are here! I've been nominated by the lovely Lydia at Lydiham! I really love the blogging community's efforts to foster and encourage bloggers, so here I go!

1. What trend do you think has been most hit and miss?
I think the hair ombre look is here to stay, especially since the more subtle version is the lazy girl's way to grow out bleached/dyed hair. As for trends that I passed on, I simply do not understand the MC Hammer/parachute pants. I think they're super unflattering and hug all the wrong places. I abhor the printed versions especially! Shudder.

2. Where is your favorite place to shop?
I think it's pretty evident that all the salespeople at various Zara stores located all throughout Seoul pretty much know me by name. I also have a unusually friendly shopping "relationship" with Nars, Chanel, and Dior at Galleria Department Store in Apgujong in Seoul. 

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
My favorite place in the world is Palau in Micronesia, where I have been already, but next on my list is the Maldives and Bora Bora. 

4. If you were granted 3 wishes, what would you wish for? (No unlimited wishes!)
I wish that my Yorkshire Terrier Perseus would live in good health and spirits forever and ever. I also wish to take a year off and just yacht around the world. I would also like to have a flying magic carpet, personality optional.

5. Is there a style/trend that you wish could suit you better?
My petite frame prevents me from pulling off some maxi dresses without being a human mop.

6. If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be and why?
I already have the best pet in the world! I would also maybe like a friendly Sabertoothed Tiger, pre-extinction. Side note: was anyone else always assigned the Yellow Power Ranger as a child because she was Asian and so were you? 

7. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would like to have dinner with the deceased leader of North Korea Kim Jong Il just to hear exactly where he thought he was going with the whole dynastic totalitarian dictatorship thing and why he thought it would be a good idea to starve his people so that he could build himself some gold toilets. 

8. What makeup product could you not live without?
I have been recently turned onto toner, and I honestly don't know why I had been deprived this long. I adore Caudalíe Beauty Elixir and am never without a bottle to freshen up my face.

9. What's an interesting fact about yourself?
I never feel like I'm home anywhere I go. I'm always missing something, whether it's people, food, or places, from the US, Korea, or Germany, having spent a third of my life in each respective country.

10. If you were PM for a day and were told to make a new law, what would it be?
I would make ethical treatment of animals mandatory for every country, enforced by a very strict policing system. Korea is legally incredibly primitive on this, and it infuriates me as to how many animals are taken in by pet shops/animal hospitals that have been tortured (eyeballs poked, paws sliced off) or mistreated. Abusing and torturing animals is one of the early signs of antisocial/psychopathic behavior, so there are a lot of sickos out there roaming the streets that haven't been caught yet.

Sorry to end on such a sobering note but awareness needs to be made. 
I would like to nominate the following girls for the Liebster Award:

Cheyenne at DixieLu (fashion)

Nominees: Congratulations, and I am looking forward to reading your answers! If you will comment here after you've answered, that would make my day! xoxo

Which of my answers did you like or hate?

    Gemma ♥ | Ɱiss Ɱakeup Ɱagpie

  2. Thank you Gemma! The Power Rangers were sooooo hip back in the day haha!

  3. Yay! I loveloveloved reading your answers! I agree with the last one... this kinda thing makes me so sad. This is why I absolutely adore Body Shop products because they don't test anything on animals, and their products are vegetarian! I really want to go to the Maldives too, it looks gorgeous there! Anyway, that was a really fun read and I'm glad you answered my questions! :) x
