Leibster Award !!

Hello beautiful!

Just so you know, this is going to be one long fun post and I cannot wait to get started :D
I was nominated for the very popular Leibster Award sometime ago by Sehrish of Makeup with Style and then recently I was nominated for it again by Fatima of Blog by FA, so I decided to do them together in one post! I want to thank them profusely for this nomination and the amazing questions! 

What is a Leibster Award?

A Leibster Award is awarded to the up and coming blogger with less than than 200 followers. The idea is to support each other in order to appreciate each other and to build a strong blogging community!

1- What is the story behind your blog name?

          There's no story behind my blog name, it's just my full name actually (: I didn't want to restrict my blog to one particular thing so I went by my name.

2- When and why did you start blogging?

          I started my personal blog (it's this one) in August of this year. I have always loved writing, sharing what I know and learn and connect with others and blogging let me do just that. I actually started blogging in 2010 about my college life and the memories but didn't continue it. I also have a blog with my best friend Hani. You can check it here.

3- Where you like to be in 5 years time?

          Somewhere I am happy, at peace and able to help others and make an impact. Collaborating with Victoria Beckham. Yes! I adore her and her style so much!! Having published my novels and songs. Having Violette (my clothing line) turn into a very renowned and successful fashion/clothing line! Also, a very successful blogger! Big dreams, big dreams!

4- If you could write a letter to yourself 10 years ago, what is one thing you would tell your younger self?

          "Your kindness will save you, your kindness will grow you. People leave, times change. Do not let anyone or anything dull your shine. Expect only and ONLY from your Lord, He's the only One who'll stay with you no matter what, belong to Him and Him ONLY. What's yours will be yours and what isn't wont ever be yours. Kindness, compassion and faith in Lord is the answer."

5- What do you find to be the most challenging part of blogging?

          As I have just started with this blog: Getting brands to remember my blog, to reach out to me.

6- If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

          Oh the countries and places I wanna visit! But right now I just want to visit UAE to be with my niece who I miss immensely!

7- What is your favorite food?

          I enjoy eating Chinese and Italian food, also Biryani (duh). 

8- What is one thing that you want to do before you die?

          To do or create something that will help others in my life and continue to do so after my death.

9- What is your favorite post that you have written?

          I put my heart and soul in each post, do complete research and test products before reviewing. My favorite post I've done has got to be 5 Things To Buy This Fall 2015, you can read the post here. I worked for 6 hours on this to make sure I'm mentioning the right designers and selecting the best offers and products for my wonderful readers. I watched the whole New York Fashion Week for Pre Fall & Fall 2015 before writing this and another post that's coming soon in the Fall Series (: 

10- What advice would you give to someone just starting a blog?

          Blog for the love of blogging. As long as you're passionate about blogging or anything in your life, you'll be able to face any and every challenge you come across. Keep yourself updated, read and observe more so that you can provide your readers, followers and fans with the best. Stay true to yourself and your readers. Let your personality shine through your writing <3

11-What it is one goal related to blogging that you would like to complete?

          To work with the beautiful Chiara Ferragni. She inspires me so much. Also (I'm gonna cheat on this one and mention two goals) to provide the best for my readers.

12- What three items are always in your purse?

          a) My Wallet.
          b) Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Peach Glow - To touch up throughout the day as I have combination skin and I sweat a lot.
          c) e.l.f Powder Brush - To use with the Stay Matte Pressed Powder.

13- Which makeup brand is your favorite other than MAC?

          Too Faced! I'm in love with their products!

14- What is the most important thing for you without which you can not live?

          Honesty and compassion. I'll be lost without it.

15- Your most favorite blog to read is?

          I use to love reading Sara Hassan's Blog. I hope she writes again. I love reading The Blonde Salad!

16- What is your biggest wish in life?

          To help others and make an impact.

17- Your favorite quote?

          "Let us permit the nature to have her way, she knows its business better than we do."
