Liebster Award

The Lovely citygirl907, owner of the
Beautiful Living blog has nominated me with a Liebster award!  Thank you so much citygirl! You should check her blog, it's awesome, she's also the host of The Battle nail Polish Challange I'm taking part in.
So now I'm supposed to tell you 11 random facts about me,
answer 11 questions citygirl907 has asked her nominees, and nominate 11 bloggers I love with 11 new questions, yay, So exciting!
So here we go:

 11 Random Facts about me:
  • Inspite living in Switzerland I don't know how to ski and I don't practice any winter sport! 
  • I love dressing the table in fancy ways.
  • I do not have a driving license.
  • You may not believe it but I'm not a very talkative person.
  • I hate doing household tasks. Hate. Ironing is a very rare word to my vocabulary!
  • I never wore bluejeans to school, University or work, as I consider them "casual" or "leisure" clothes.
  • I have visited 14 different countries in my life.
  • My favourite kind of music is Opera. And it's for real. I know, I'm weird.
  • I bless the dishwasher machine inventor!
  • I was born in Argentina, met my husband in England and live in Switzerland, but we all speak Italian at home (?)
  • My favourite flowers are white roses.
 Here are the questions citygirl907 asked:
1. Favourite make-up product or nail polish?
My favourite makeup product is nail polish! But, weirdly, I could live without it. What I can no longer live without is concealer. I'm getting old, girls.

2. Favourite item in your wardrobe?
It has to be a beautiful silk dress I wore for my son's baptism. I can't wait to have another occasion to wear it again!

3. The best gift you have ever received?
For my 30th anniversary my hubby took me to Milan to the famous theatre "La Scala" to watch Rigoletto.

4. If you were an inventor......?
Not sure what kind of inventor we are talking about. If I had an awesome idea of a wonderful thing to invent, I'd probably be somewhere else right now :)

5. If you were stranded on an island name three famous people you would like to be with.
I do not really care about famous people... In such circumstances I'd like to be with my husband and child, or at least knowing they're ok.

6. How long have you been blogging?
I've been a blogger since August 2005, but before this one I had another kind of blog.

7. Do you have a favourite post that you have written on your blog?
Have not written that one yet! lol

8. Favourite movie or tv show?
I very rarely watch tv. My favourite film of all time  is "Life is beautiful", and I don't think that's going to change any time now.

9. Three items always found in your handbag?
Swiss army knife, kleenex, lipbalm.

  1. I love that you speak italian at home :D
    What was your other blog about? Do you still blog on it?

    1. Hi Ina! Thanks for reading! I would have nominated you, but is only for bloggers with less than 200 followers. :/
      My other blog is still visible, but I haven't written on it since 2010. It was about politics and philosophical debates. I had a 3rd blog about life in general but that one does not exist any more. Both were in Spanish!

    2. Aw, don't worry about the nomination, I would have felt bad for not having time to do the award in time. With the Christmas coming I hardly have time to read my favorite blogs :D
      Thanks for answering the questions about the other blog/blogs! That was a quite different kind of blogging!

  2. This is fab :) Thanks for nominating me! I'll get onto the post as soon as :)
    And I'm so jealous of your present off your husband!

  3. Ciao Nati! Thanks for nominating me!! <3 (Or should I say grazie mille? ;))
    So fun to know more about you!

    Anche mi piace l'opera! ;) Mi amo Puccini! La Boheme! <3
    (I probably got that wrong.. it's almost 20 years since I studied Italian at school ;), but hey, I tried! ;))

    Arrividerci cara mia! ;)

    1. Ciao Jezzica! Che bello ahi studiato italiano, hai detto tutto benissimo.
      I love La Bohème, me too!

    2. Grazie! ;) (blushing) ;)
      Listen to this:
      This is our Swedish pride Jussi Bjorling singing my favourite song from La Boheme, Che gelida manina! Give it two minutes before it starts ;)

  4. Thank you so much for the nomination Natalia, I love this blogging community! :) I share your distain for ironing - mine stayed in the box for 2 years at one point ha ha. Suey xxx

  5. Hi Nati, THANK YOU for nominating me <3 I am so happy and proud to have met you in the Bloggin Community!!!! When I started out with my Blog I would have never expected this - I feel so exited and happy :-) thank you for sharing all this with us. Guess what I am Swiss, always lived in Switzerland and never ever skied :-P. And I admit I occasionally love ironing - it has a meditative impact on me ;-) xxx

  6. Hi Natalia, thank you again for the award! It's great to get to know bloggers through these awards! Ohh would love to see you in the silk dress one day! When you do wear it again, I imagine it'd look lovely! Blogging has been great cause it opened doors to get to know people with similar interests! Oh, I'm not one for make ups.. erm but if i had to makeup and I'm running late, I'd just put on lipstick/lipgloss. hahaha!! Indie polishes? - best thing that's ever happened in the polish world, I'd say! I'm really truly thankful for God being in my life and one of the best thing I've done and I'm proud that I did, was starting the blog! :)


I love your comments!
I read all and each of them and answer as much as I can. Don't hesitate to leave one, even if it's just to say hi :)
