Some Blogs I Like

23 May

It’s been a while since my last entry. I finally managed to get the issue fixed, so I will be able to post more often now 🙂

Last time I wrote about the Liebster Award that the lovely Monique from A Reel Chick, so kindly nominated me for (Thanks Monique!). As part of this activity I had to answer Monique’s 11 questions, nominate another 11 blogs/bloggers with less than 200 followers, write 11 random facts about myself and create a list of 11 fresh questions for my nominees to answer.

Well, I answered Monique’s questions and shared 11 random facts about myself. You can see the first part of my award acceptance here!

Now, I will share with all of you my newly nominated bloggers/blogs and my list of 11 questions for them to answer.

Let’s start with the wonderful blogs!!


1) When Judit Bakes… Bread and Better… And When She Bakes Some More
2) Dushonok
4) The Posh Dish
6) Serendipity Musings
7) Salt&Paper
8) The Pippin Girl
9) More Fun With Ems
10) I Heart Sweet Peas
11) What Katya Does


Now, here are my 11 questions for you to answer

1. Why did you start your blog?
2. Where do you find inspiration?
3. What is your biggest pet peeve?
4. How would you best describe your style?
5. 3 places you would like to visit
6. How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
7. What are your favorite dishes / food?
8. What kind of music are you listening to lately?
9. Which qualities do you believe every human being should possess?
10. Which has been the best advice you have ever received and which one do you like giving out the most?
11. If you were ever interviewed by a professional reporter, which question would you like to be asked? (it can be on any topic)

Now, this award is somewhat of a peer to peer award, which I think is actually cooler because it helps spread all the LOVE among all of us bloggers 😉

So, here’s what you need to do if you decide to accept this award.
Dedicate one blog entry with the following:
1) Nominate another 11 awesome blogs with less than 200 followers (this is to support and encourage each other)
2) Create a list of 11 questions for them to answer
3) Answer my 11 questions
4) And finally, share 11 random facts about yourself
5) Please don’t forget to give a shot out to the blogger who nominated you, me 😉 (thanks in advanced)

You will need to notify your nominees about the award, and they should follow the same steps should they decide to accept the award.

You can also visit Monique’s blog to see how she did it.

This is just a nice way to pay it forward and support each other. If anyone says thanks, but no thanks, it’s totally fine. No pressure. This should be enjoyable and not a shore 😉

PS. Here’s a little reminder 😉 Sometimes things can be a bit challenging, but in the end it is always worth it if it’s what you really love doing. Have a great one!

Mandarin Headaches

Mandarin Headaches

I’ve been studying Mandarin for a while now, and I still find it very difficult to grasp certain concepts. I can only read about 5 characters and can only speak and write through the help of pinyin. So, you can say I’m pretty much an illiterate here in China 😦
I speak English, Spanish and Italian. Italian came pretty easy because the structure and grammar are very similar to Spanish, but there’s nothing between Mandarin and these languages that can allow my brain to make some sort of connection.
I keep trying, though. Hard work never hurt nobody 😉

La Unica

La Unica

I’ve always been a fan of Frida Kahlo. She’s one of my style icons, for she wasn’t afraid to express who she was through clothes, jewelry and flowers. her paintings express her life and even her photos show what a powerful lady she was. Granted, she wasn’t your typical beauty, but she was truly majestic in many other ways. A very smart lady who took her suffering and misfortune and transformed it all into art and beauty
