The Versatile Blogger Award + Beauty Blogger Tag ^o^

Hi everyone!

I'm really excited to do this post today because I got nominated by some awesome people for the Versatile Blogger Award! Big thanks to: Mindy,  Krystal, Natalie, GaEul, June and Sample Hime for nominating me! ^o^  Please do check out their lovely blogs!

Also, I am also tagged by Fraulein Schnee (Miss Snow) for the Beauty Blogger Tag! Thank you! This is going to be really fun. :D Please check out her lovely blog too!

Rules of the VBA:
If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Include a link to their blog.
3. Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!) Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
4. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Ok let's start off with the 7 thing about myself!
I'll try to think of different ones from the Liebster Award, though I am not that interesting. x)

1. I was born in China, but moved to Canada when I was 8.
2. I was part of the Canadian Air Cadets when I was 15-17 xD And we had to wear uniforms and heavy black boots, and train to stand very still. heh =A=
3. My favourite TV show at the moment is Sherlock, thank to Junjun for recommending me this awesome show! :D
4. Books I'm reading at the moment: The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami, and The Art of Choosing by Sheena Iyengar. I am a slow reader. =A=
5. Favourite game at the moment is The Binding of Isaac, it's a weird and twisted game, but cute in it's own way. >.< I have racked up way too many hours playing this. -.-
6. I want to visit Japan! I was always a fan of the culture, especially when I was an avid anime fan, now not so much, but the feeling lingers. x)
7. I am very enthusiastic person at heart, though I may appear to be nonchalant at times because of my shy nature. =A=

That toke longer than expected, more like a list of favorites that the moment haha

I nominate:

Favourite blogs ^^ 
Gosh there's more people I would want to nominate! >.<

Okay now it's time for the Beauty Blogger Tag!

Rules :
1. State that this tag was created by The Beau Bow
2. Tag some more beauty bloggers
3. Title this as I've done to show what the tag is about.

1) Name a beauty routine you barely do.
     I would say exfoliating, haven't really tried much yet.
2) Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?  
     lol no ;_;, but I don't use much brushes, only times are for blush.
3) How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?
    A long time, like a week? I sometimes have a habit of picking off my nail polish too. -.-
4) How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (ie. top coat, foundation etc.)?
    I'll buy it when I need it.
5) What is your worst beauty habit?
    Touching my face or rubbing my eyes, wrinkles D:
6) Name something non beauty related that you put off doing all the time.
    Finding jobs, applications, and just general important stuff. =A=
7) When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
    I try to prep before hand, but usually lat minute, unless it's some really important event that I know I can't be late  for.
8) Can you commit to spending bans?
    No, I can't D: well it really depends on how motivated I'm feeling, but usually no. ;_;
9) How organised is your makeup and nail polish collections? 
   My makeup is in several boxes, not really organized that well, but I don't have too much. Nail polishes are all in a container, not organized by colour, but it's fairly neat.
10) What is the longest time you've gone without writing a blog post? 
   I think 5 days, I try not to get in the habit of not blogging for more than 3-4 days, since my older posts were almost once every other day. D:

I tag everyone from the VBA nominations plus:

I would love to read your posts on this tag! :D

    Thank you for doing the blogger tag! :* I agree on points 2,3,5 :D

  7. Hi chee! thanks for nominating me. I'll do this tonight since this is quite short. I remember, I failed to do the liebster award tag -_-.nice reading this and know more about you.^^ About washing my brushes regularly... I'm lazy washing my brushes nowadays, so instead of using it, I just use my (clean) fingers and prefer creams and tints so I've got nothing to wash except for my eyeliner brush. haha :))

  8. I've always wanted to go to Japan as well. However, my parents are not letting me atm. Someday for sure though! Thank you Chee for tagging me, will try to get a post up soon!

    great tag! would you like to follow each other in gfc and bloglovin? let me know!

  10. WOAH I think it's SO cool that you were part of the Canadian Air Cadets * u * Please show pictures of you in a uniform if you have any LMFAO-- And write a post about it sometime or something-- I'd really like to hear about your training experience!! Thank you for nominating me btw! I loved reading about you~ ; u ;

  11. Yay looking forward to your Beauty Blogger Tag! :D
    Wow what a coincidence xD I came to Canada just a few days before my 8th birthday. :3 I'm from Nanjing in Suzhou Province. What about you?

    I haven't been watching TV in years! But I got hooked on Sherlock right away! *A* Can't wait for the next season to come out. >.<
    Now I'm giving Game of Thrones another chance, hehe. :D

  12. Aww thanks for reading ^^ I use my fingers for most of my make up, or sponges. :D

  13. I'll check out yours soon Monica! Thanks for reading this ^^
    Ya same here, I guess it's because of my laziness I just use my fingers instead of brushes haha, but I always make sure they are clean before hand. :D

  14. Oh that's too bad, I don't have the time and money to go atm. =3= Yes someday for me as well! Looking forward to your post Carmen :)

  15. LOL I don't even know if I can find it now. Not sure if I should write a post about it, it's really not as cool as you think it is! xD Maybe someday haha~ Thank you so much for nominating, and reading this, it makes me feel loved xD

  16. I don't exfoliate much either >_<
    Hehe, and I think my worst beauty habit is forgetting to moisturise my neck! But I'm trying to forget less now~

  17. Wow~ We share similar experiences, I bet. xD I'm from Chengdu, Sichuan! :'D I've always wanted to go to Nanjing, because that's where my parents met and went to university. c: My mom especially loves Nanjing, and always tells me so much about it. >u< Do you go back often?

    I actually didn't watch TV for the longest time too, until I figured I'd give Sherlock a try. >u< I don't even remember why I started watching it, but I was hooked right away! Game of Thrones is something that must be taken in small doses, I find. >u< It's really good though~ Lots of "心机" and whatnot. c:

  18. Gah I always forget to moisturize my neck too! >.< And I usually don't blend bb cream down too, which I should! haha
    Thanks for reading Tulip :)

  19. Ohh Sichuan has some really good food! And spicy too right? I love it >w< Never been there but I've hear the scenery is quite nice too. Aw that's so lovely! My memory is foggy, but I do remember there was a lot of parks and small mountains where I lived! I actually rarely visit Nanjing now, since we sold our house and my extended families live in other towns. :( The last time I went back was 2 years ago. I'm always overwhelmed with nostalgia every time I go back, it's really a homey feeling. :3

    I'm on the 3rd episode of GoT now, I really like the variety of characters. I agree! After I watch an episode,I feel like I need to "digest" it for a bit before moving on hehe. I actually had to Google translate what 心机 meant, my Chinese is really going down hill ;--;

  20. *high five! :)) me too, good thing bb creams and cream type blushes can be applied with fingers :))

  21. oooh! This looks like a fun award - I recently completed the Liebester award/tag aswell :P

    June Beauty Favourites!
