Most recently, two lovely ladies and talented bloggers have separately awarded me the Liebster award. Xixia at This is Xixia and Emmy at Scarberian Fashion Lover, thank you. I'm both honored and humbled by your recognition. Most of you are familiar with their blogs but if you haven't checked them out before, give 'em a visit.
With receiving the Liebster award, I'm to answer 11 questions that were posed to me and here they are below!
What is your favourite quote? There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. It's a Buddhist quote that has turned into almost a sort of mantra for me that I repeat under my breath in times of stress. Plus my parents are Buddhist and this reminds me of their philosophy, except then they take it further to "all of life is suffering" so I tend to stop listening before they get to that part.
What is a pet peeve of yours? People who smack their mouths when they eat, without a doubt. It is like nails on a chalkboard for me and I want to admonish them, like a crotchety old lady. Or smack them in the face.
What is your favourite movie? For awhile, I was watching Ocean's 11 on repeat - gorgeous cast, clever plot and the good guys get the cash and the girls. Perfect movie and perfect ending.
What is your guilty pleasure novel? I never really feel guilty reading any novels - no shame, this one here. But the one I turn to again and again when I need a pick me up is James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small series. It's smart, funny and heartwarming all at once.
Who is your favourite cartoon character? Daria. She made being ambivalent cool before it was cool. Plus we both had a crush on Trent Lane (can you have a crush on a cartoon character??).

World Cup or Olympics? Olympics and Winter Olympics to be specific. I can't wait until Sochi 2014!
