I’ve Been Nominated For the Fashionista Award!


Sorry for the lack of updates lately guys, been super busy with the Beauty Blogger Award! I know I’m a bit late with all the nominations I’ve been receiving, so I thought I better not delay this any further! I’ve been nominated by four lovely bloggers last week and this week, I am feeling so loved right now🙂 The four lovely people are Lindsey from Life. Love. Lindsey, Burdess from Beauty By Burdess, Emily from Stugan and Leah from Beautytype. Thank you so much to each amazing blogger for nominating me *blush* and dear readers, feel free to check out their blogs as they are awesome blogs🙂

At first, after I saw I was nominated, I was delira of course! It was the first time I’ve been nominated here on WordPress and it felt amazing to know that my little blog which I started only last month, has entertained and hopefully inspired some of my readers. Although my blog is not a fashion blog, I know a thing or two about the beauty world and my nomination also marks the first milestone here at Cecilia’s Corner. Here’s to more blogging in 2014 and hopefully lots more years to come! Less waffle and let’s get into the questions!

1) What motivated you to start blogging?

My love for makeup, skincare, food, pets, easy DIYs and lots more! I am a creative girl (at least I think I am haha) and I don’t have a lot of girl friends I can share my girly interests with. I’ve always loved sharing my creative ideas with others and also reading on other people’s creative ideas, so blogging comes very naturally! Who truly motivated me last month was my friend Soso from Sosophisticatedbeauty! We’ve been friends for years now and we also share our love for beauty and fashion. Last month, I took over her blog for a week as she was having a problem with her laptop. Once I started typing, I was truly hooked…and the rest is history! Check out her blog, she is amazing at what she does and she is also a sweet, amazing friend x

2) Favorite movies?

I have a few but the one on top of my list is Limitless. Gosh, I love this movie! You can tell where my chemistry side kicks in with my choice of favorite movie haha. Go watch it if you haven’t seen it yet.


My other top picks include The Notebook, White Chicks, 21 Jump Street, My Neighbour Totoro and Spirited Away.

3) What is you’re dream career?

Anything to do with makeup, fashion, animals, traveling. Or better still, get paid to travel and see interesting makeup products all over the world and write about them. I dream big,haha.

4) Top wish list items at the moment?

I really want to get my hands on Touche Eclat Foundation and Diorskin Airflash as I’ve heard so much good things about them. I love buying new foundations…it’s a disease!

5) Favorite television shows?

Game of Thrones, Devious Maids, New Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Orange is the New Black.

6) What store do you find yourself shopping in the most?

Boots, Debenhams, River Island, Bershka, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius.

7) Favorite fashion designers?

I’m a high street girl for fashion but if I want to treat myself, I love pretty and classic pieces from Michael Kors.

8) Describe your dream vacation?

Bora Bora for definite! I always dream about the blue sky, clear ocean and white sand. Hope I’ll be able to see the place in person one day instead of looking at it’s amazingness on a computer screen😛


Please take me there!!

9) What are the goals for your blog?

Honestly, it’s all about sharing my knowledge on a lot of random things and get some love back in return. I love reading on other people’s thoughts below every single one of my posts! It’s a nice cozy corner where beauty lovers can chill with me and hopefully take something back in return🙂 wow, I sounded so cheesy!haha. But honestly, that is my goal for Cecilia’s Corner!

10) If you had the opportunity to interview a celebrity, who would it be?

I don’t have a celebrity figure whom I truly admire and follow (get the latest goss about that person/follow his or her style and makeup/buy whatever product he or she launches). People probably think that I’m an old hag for saying this…but celebrities bore me! Yes, I said it,ok. If I can interview someone whom I really look up to and worship, it would be David Attenborough. His passion and work on preserving nature is truly inspirational and just simply amazing. I cannot say enough about him, we would be here all day. He is my inspiration and role model!

So that’s my part done and here are my nominees for the award:

1. Sosophisticatedbeauty
2. Claudia Fox
3. Caryl Almelor
4. Birch Beauty
5. Kora’s Korner
6. Sempre In Stile
7. Myetherealseas
8. jessicaKachan
9. Doirs
10. Maaike Janse

Keep the ball going please🙂 and nominate 10 other amazing bloggers in your post! You can read about the rules etc on the original post here.

Thank you for reading and we’ll chat next time.
