a while ago, I got nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely sharkie Helen Davis from Beautiful Curiosities. Thank you very much <3
sooo, the rules of the game are:
1. Thank the person who nominated you. (check!)
2. Answer the 11 questions they’ve asked you
3. Nominate 11 new bloggers
4. Set 11 questions for your nominees
Helen’s questions were:
1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
at one hand, to create a kind of diary for myself but at the other hand to share outfits as well as awesome stuff with other people/ other bloggers! #sharingiscaring
2. What was the inspiration for your blog name?
oh. it developed from my love to the sea and to waves. i wanted to include a light element (pearls) and a dark one (shadows), because I believe everything can be beautiful, and is somehow related.
3. If you had to blog about something different, what would it be?
my main focus wld probably be on social issues /politics.
4. What’s your favourite season and why?
i love autumn best. First, because of meteorologic reasons: there is usually a lot of wind, which i _love_. sometimes even rain, storms, which can be super beautiful as well. Occasionally the sun comes out and dips the world in a mixture of shadows and beautiful shades of light. Then there are kinds romantic reasons as well, as autumn is always presented as the last step before winter (death of the nature and life cycle).
5. What’s been your favourite holiday so far?
oh.., now that’s hard to decide… guess i’ll go for the london trip with my class! it was only very short but loaded with awesomness.
6. If you had to live in a different country for a year, where would it be?
THE UNITED KINGDOM. of corse.
7. What’s your guilty pleasure?
8. Which high street shop is your favourite?
now i can’t decide haha. lately i’ve had a crush on Mango (as soon as the exams are over I’m going to check out their shop in the city – until then internet is my best friend). oh and I _love_ urban outfitters.
(btw for all those that are not familiar with “high street shop”, basically this are the shops you’ld find on highstreet or in a mall or just everywhere, like HM, Zara, Primark, Missguided, etc.)
9. Do you have a bucket list? If so, what fraction have you ticked off?
i don’t :). Personnally, bucket lists always remind me trashy teenie romans haha. Like life was a shopping list and you’ld need to get all the things you wrote down on it. But listen, what if you’re in the wrong supermarket? you’ld grow completely desperate and ignore the fact that there are so many other superooh products to shop!? Setting clear goals and trying to realize dreams is totally awesome, I only believe that you wouldn’t need a bucket list if you were determined. part from that – praise the listography! last month i came up with a challenge though: taste all the 80whiskey brands in a nearby local pub.
10. What’s one thing that you wished you were better at?
at starting earlier to study…
