The Liebster Blog Award

I've been nominated for The Liebster Blog Award, by Hira from Views and Reviews.
Thanks hun! <3

Wtf is 'Leibster'? Well, I googled, and apparently it means "Dearest" in German. Aww. 
Its basically for blogs with less than 200 followers, so you know, more people find out about our awesomeness and FOLLOW us. And stuff.

The basic rules:

  1. Each person chosen must provide 11 facts about themselves.
  2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger who tagged you has given, then think of 11 questions for the people you tag.
  3. Choose 11 people to receive the award and link them in your post.
  4. Be sure to tell these people that you've tagged them.
  5. Don't tag the person who tagged you.

Sounds fun-ish. Here goes.

11 facts about me:

1.   I don't really like to wear heels all that much. I barely have two- flats are more of my thing since I'm tall-ish... (5ft something) and well, heels make me tower over all my friends in a less model, more giant sorta way. BUTTT, my uncle gave me these killer new wedges last week and you guys? I am in loove. 

2.   I am really, really into Tutti Frutti's froyo. 
The best way to eat it: A little of Pomegranate, Tart and Mango, topped with the fresh fruit of your choice (not that icky canned stuff) and swirls of bitter sweet Hershey's choc syrup. MMMMMMMMM.

3.   I love Glee, and everything to do with it. The songs are awesome, the funny in it is awesome and The Glee Project? Is awesome x 2. 

4.   I am a huge, lazy bum. I've been promising you guys a giveaway here for soo long, and I've still not got the post done. BUT ITS COMING YOU GUYS. Soon.

5.   I'm not strongly opposed to getting engaged/married at this age (19). A lot of people think that I'm not being feminist, and/or submitting to the typical Pakistani society narrow mindedness, but seriously? I don't think its a big deal. If I like a guy and fall in love with him, I want to keep things as, well, halal as possible by getting engaged/marrying his azz and having the best honey moon of my life asap. By which I obviously mean Disney World and... The Harry Potter Theme Park!!!!! Yay.

6.   My parents think I'm crazy. As in she-needs-a-psychologist crazy. This is because I want to Major.In.English. It's also one of the reasons why I totally identify with that crazy girl Hannah, in HBO's Girls. Other reasons including the 'fat' thing and the 'clueless factor' she has going on. :C

7.   I trust too easily, and sometimes, that sucks.

8.   I'm waayy too open. Sometimes that sucks x 1324091324.

9.  I LOVE to sing and draw and read. And I like to think I'm at least above average at all three things. 

10.   I'm a hopeless romantic and a sucker for chivalry. Also a believer of the quote 'If you can make a girl laugh - you can make her do anything.' [Well. You know, mostly anything.]

11.   My biggest dream is to one day get my own awesome Meg Cabot/JK Rowling esq (or even better) book published. InshAllah.
