Blogger Appreciation Award

So I've been tagged by my sister (her blog just got a dotcom domain, btw, congrats!) for a Blogger Appreciation Award :)

This tag is quite simple and short but somehow I forgot about it in some weeks that she had to remind me about it ^^;; These are the things you have to do if you're tagged with this award;

1. Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post.
2. Answer the following 4 questions.
3. Award the blogger appreciation award as many readers/commenters/followers as you'd like.
4. Let the blogger know you've just awarded them (by leaving a comment/email/tweet/etc).

The Questions:
1. How long have you been blogging?
2. What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
3. What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?

So here goes...

How long have you been blogging?
I have to say it first, I'm not quite sure. Before it came to blogging, I had a website long time ago that accommodated my affection for Magic Knight Rayearth (yeah, I was a part time otaku, just a little) during junior high school years. Then I have several domains until I arrived here. I wrote quite many posts back in friendster blog (which has, sadly, terminated) and then multiply, then migrating to blogspot, even tho I used to have a blogspot domain even before that... I consider the real start was my friendster blog, which was in 2005 :) so it's been 7 years since then.

What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
At first I thought it's just an idea of a diary, I thought no one would read it anyway :P I wrote lyrics that I love, random pics and whatever it is that crossed my mind. Then after some time, I did realize that it's nice reading your old posts for keepsake reasons. As for peachysweetness, it was my 2011 resolution to start a *beauty* blog. I think it would be somewhat helpful to someone if I keep a record of the things I tried, cosmetic-wise. And I think it's good for me too to keep track of what cosmetic products I already owned and made me more aware before buying new stuff :)

What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
I love reading reviews. Maybe that's why Temptalia is one of my most visited links. I honestly rarely bother about tutorials because I think I already grasped the basic (really really basic) so most tutorials that I watched was mostly different in eye make up. And until now I don't really do anything with my eyes, just eyeliner is enough. The only tutorials I have in my browser's bookmark are pinkfishpie's Elegant Princess Make Up Tutorial Transformation and Wintery Silver Make Up Tutorial. Whenever I wear eyeshadows I basically go from those links. I think it's because she has the same lids as mine :D

Aside from reviews, I love reading Asian beauty blogs because of the skintone and sometimes monolids similarities, also because I think there are so many great products still out there with more affordable prices. I also love reading european beauty blogs for more reachable brands :)

What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?
When I read other blogs, seeing the pictures is what excites me. If I saw a review with just one picture and lots of words, I won't enjoy it so much. That's why I wish I could improve the amount and quality of my pictures in the blog. :) 

So I guess that's all for this tag. I'd like to tag Jian from Pinkfishtart and Vero from christyvero ! :) Have fun with it, girls ^^


  1. AWWWW YOU USED TO BE A PART-TIME OTAKU!!! Me tooooo! Although actually I never did finish reading Magic Knight Rayearth now that I think about it. I had a few volumes on my manga bookshelf...Maybe I'll find it online and read it later hahaha...

    I love the online community in blogging! it feels really nice to meet so many people who share similar interests!

    Thank you for the tag Melinda!

    AHHHHH you bookmarked my tutorials?!! ToT *happy tears* i really wondered if anyone in the entire universe would find them helpful.

    1. You're welcome! Looking forward to read your post about this also :D

      Yeah I was making a fanpage and all :P I managed to buy the old copies of MKR because I missed reading them again, now I wonder why I left that in Indonesia *sigh* what was your favorite series back then?

      Aahhaha yesss maybe that's why I pushed myself to ask you when you'd continue blogging again ^^ I found them very helpful, thank you so much for those posts :))) and so happy that you finally went back to blogging again ^^

    2. I must warn you though I am terrible at doing tags because I can never come up with good answers for these kinds of questions! They're really long and then I try and think about how to cut it down.

      By the way, after reading about the barbie essie polish...I caved in and bought my first essie polish! I forgot what colour but it's a murky grey-purple! (I like murky colours...)The brush is really nice and wide and flat! So easy to use!!! :D Yaaay~~~

      Oh no you didn't bring them? Maybe you could ask your family to bring them to you next time they come to see you? Manga-wise I really liked typical shoujo ones like CardCaptor Sakura...I also collected X/1999 but it was really scary and weird and I didn't like it...but the only reason I did that is because I love CLAMP's artwork. It has changed quite a bit now though. I haven't checked out XXXholic or Chronicles of Tsubasa or whatever they're called. It's funny but my favourite TV shows were more shounen like Gundam Wing, Dragon Ball Z etc. XD

      Awwww! I'm glad you asked~!! It's nice to talk to you! Sorry I'm not particularly helpful these days. If you do find tutorials helpful still I could do some more...but my make up is very boring I feel. hahahahaha...
