Versatile Blogger Award & Liebster Award nominations

Versatile Blogger Award / Liebster Award

*Nothing to disclose

Lately I have been very lucky that four bloggers have nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award and the Liebster Award. It’s lovely to be recognised by your fellow bloggers, especially considering I haven’t really been doing anything all that special – well, at least I don’t think so!

I don’t want to sound ungrateful but I do want to tell the truth. I consider these awards to be virtual chain letters, considering there isn’t really an “award” and you have to then nominate usually a crazy amount of people (AKA forwarding). So this is just a quick post to say thank you to those who have nominated me and give them some link love and then answer a few of their questions. But I won’t be forwarding these awards on.

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by The Mind of an Eclecticist. I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Ginger Loves Makeup, Taken at Face Value and Bubbles & Blush. Please visit these sites and have a look around!

And now, here are seven interesting (well, I don’t necessarily think they’ll be fascinating!) things about myself, as per the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:

  • I am vegetarian
  • my favourite food is capsicum
  • my favourite band is The Beatles; favourite song is The Long and Winding Road
  • I do not have any pets, although I would love to!
  • I am going travelling in Europe for three months starting October 6
  • while I love nail polish, on a day-to-day basis I only wear mascara and lip gloss, no other make-up at all apart for special events.

I’ve made a mish-mash of 10 questions from the three Liebster Award nominations, as I don’t know how I would go answering 30 questions! Talk about the Spanish Inquisition!

  1. If you only had time to see ONE animal at the zoo, which would it be?Β Elephants. My favourite animals.
  2. What is the inspiration behind your blog name? I decided on Dry, Dammit! because I am so impatient when it comes to nail polish drying time!
  3. Chocolate or biscuits? Chocolate! I dislike the texture of biscuits.
  4. What advice would you give to your 10-year-old self? Don’t be scared of the unknown.
  5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Europe, somewhere. Probably Holland.
  6. If you could learn another language what would it be? Dutch. My family is Dutch.
  7. Would you prefer coffee or tea? Coffee! I drink tea, but only occasionally.
  8. If you had to nameΒ one essential beauty product, what would it be? Lip gloss. You can never have too many lip glosses. Oh, and nail polish!
  9. What is your favourite season of the year and why? Winter as I get to rug up and wear fun things like tights with dresses and big jackets.
  10. If you could do any job in the world, what would you choose? Editor of a weekly national newspaper. I used to work as a sub-editor and now work privately in comms, so I’d like to get back into newspapers, be it hard copy or online.
