Many of you may be familiar with the Liebster Award which has been circulating around the blogsphere, and I’m so excited to say that Geeky Posh was nominated for not just one, but 2 awards! A big thank you to the lovely Fabi at Halfway to New York and Jina at BeautyBlogmark for nominating my blog! Definitely give their blogs a visit – both have great content and photos :)
Since I was nominated twice, bear with me as I try to answer both sets of questions!
Favorite lipstick ever?
I think YSL has the most beautiful lipsticks ever, but unless my lips are in pristine condition I avoid wearing it. L’oreal Color Riche Lipsticks give my lips color + a nice shine, and they feel really moisturizing as well! Bonus points for the affordability!
If you could own a designer bag, which one would you choose?
Oh my gosh where do I even begin? I would say either a Chanel 2.55 Classic Flap, which is so timeless and classy, or a Hermes Birkin, the ultimate holy grail. I’m also really loving the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour – much less expensive than a Birkin, but still just elegant!
The inspiration for your blog comes from?
There are so many amazing blogs out there that I subscribe to – some with great written content, some with excellent photos. I try to make note of what I like when I come across these blogs and incorporate that into my posts.
Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?
It would have to be my Saint Laurent boots that my fiance bought me for my birthday :) They make my legs look a mile long, and I always get compliments on them when I wear them out. I taught him well! ;)
What is your favorite part about blogging?
The people you meet and the opportunities you’re given. It’s always awesome to meet a new blogger who shares your same interests and whom you can learn from!
- Describe your perfect outfit
Favorite T.V. show?
Gossip Girl. Seriously the fashion is to die for, and I can’t get enough of Blair’s witty lines. I always find myself rewatching old episodes when there’s nothing on TV.
If you could have a celebrity’s wardrobe, who would you pick?
I’m a huge fan of Kate Middleton – everything she wears is understated yet elegant. I also love the fact that she recycles her pieces – proof that you don’t need a limitless wardrobe to look amazing :) Miranda Kerr is a close second, she looks stunning in all her outfits!
What is your favorite movie?
I love all classic Disney movies, but I think Aladdin might be my favorite out of those!
What piece of advice would you give to young girls?
Don’t let what others say define who you are.
What is your favorite quote and by whom?
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. –Coco Chanel
If sky is the limit, what would you like to do next?
Travel the world and experience the different cultures and cuisines!
What is your holy grail beauty product?
My Borghese ‘Fango Active’ Mud Mask. I absolutely love how soft and clean it makes my skin feel!
What is one lesson you’ve learned since started your blog?
You can only do so much on your own. Networking with other bloggers and advertisers is what’ll take you to the next level!
Is there a book that you’ve read that had inspired you?
No…I really need to read more :(
One place in the world, you’d go back to any time…
Ok, not sure I’m reading this right, but I assume it’s asking for a place I’d revisit any time? If so, Taipei, Taiwan. I love visiting the place and I feel like everytime I go the city has changed and there are new places to explore. Not to mention, the food is to die for! If that’s not what’s it’s asking for, then that’s awkward, haha!
From both Fabi & Jina
Why did you decided to create a blog?
Back in 2002 when I first started blogging, I did it because that was the “IT” thing to do – all my online friends had one, so I had to keep up, haha. However Geeky Posh was created because I wanted to share my interests with others and connect with similar bloggers.
If you could vacation anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would you go? Why?
Italy. I’d love to visit the all historical sites and maybe do a little shopping while I’m at it ;)
Favorite blog(s) you visit daily
I’ve been obsessed with planners and stationary lately, so one blog that I’ve been visiting frequently is Seaweed Kisses. I love her reviews on stationary products, and her weekly snapshots of her planner are so inspiring!
