Liebster Award

Hey everyone! We’re proud to bring you this post today as…we’ve been Liebster-ed! ^^ Many thanks to the lovely Jennifer of Polished PR for remembering and nominating our little two month old blog. (: ♥ Also, apologies for getting the post up rather late!


How It Works:

  • Post the award on your blog.
  • Thank the blogger who presented you with the award and link them in the post.
  • Write 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Name 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers who you wish to nominate. The award is about spreading the word about up and coming blogs.
  • Answer the 11 questions from the blogger who presented you with the award and then ask your nominees 11 questions that they must answer.

ShabbyBlogsDividerE11 facts about us: 

  • 1 fact we both have in common: We absolutely dislike carrot juice…and a certain person we dislike is also nicknamed “carrot”…hmm.
  • 5 facts about Bethanie:

1. I have a Teenie Weenie obsession with shoes ❤ Well I would say, one can never have enough shoes!

2. I loveeeee watching American shows and my all time fav would be Pretty Little Liars (I am dying to find out who A is!)

3. I’ve always wanted a twin!

4. I’m a sagittarius 🙂

5. One of my fav quotes is Be Free, Dream Big 

  • 5 facts about Xin Yu:

1.. Hope this isn’t too morbid, but…I always have this temptation to run after FLUFFY pigeons and squish them. It’s my inner cat-self speaking.

2. I don’t watch much tv, but I’m really hooked onto the Beauty and the Geek series. Love it. (Am watching Season 3 of the Australian version)

3.. I meow to my family members and boyfriend. *waves paws at you*

4,. I am still very much a kid at heart, and enjoy those disney/pixar classics. Tangled, anyone? Also, somehow the morals in the stories are so much more impactful!

5. I was from the top triple science class in secondary school, but now I’m going to study a BA(Hons) in Graphic Communication, as I’ve pretty much decided that art is my life after taking A Level Art in Junior College. (:


Our Nominees: Okay this one is quite tough as we honestly don’t know many newbies! Hmm…

  5. Nail Newbie: I honestly admire ladies with shorter nails and still being able to polish them and look good! Helen’s blog is one of them. (:
  6. 9 to 5 nails: Cute nail art and swatches…all in one place. (:

4. If you could have one special power, what would it be? That would have to be Invisibility.

  • Xin Yu’s answers:

1. What are you most passionate about? Art (:

2. What’s your favorite color? I don’t have a fixed colour, as it varies from blue to red, white and black… but I find that I am drawn to more clothes in the black colour design!

4. If you could have one special power, what would it be? The powers of teleportation.

9. If you could move anywhere in the world (regardless of $), where would you go? OMG. Okay…I would want Australia cause of ALL THOSE INDIES…or Tokyo, Japan/Hokkaido cause of the scenery…but then Singapore is really the safest place so, I would stay here but move to Sentosa Cove or something. Hehe. Then I’ll travel the world with my loved ones.(:

10. What are you wearing, right now? 😉 Well, wouldn’t you like to make a guess? (;

11. I’m wearing a little black dress; What color(s) should I paint my nails? Something textured, like O.P.I Jinx, or in a lovely teal glitter/cherry red colour!
