Blog Award #12 + Announcements!

Rossy of AyR Galaxy is a beauty blogger I consider not just an acquaintance, but at this point, a friend in the blogging world. She is the sweetest person and an absolutely gorgeous blogger! Check her out and send her some love (blog link here). Let’s do a collab soon Rossy!

So she nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I mean, come on! Being nominated as a Lovely Blog! I am elated!


Anyway, here are the rules;

  1. Each nominee must thank the person who nominated them (including a link to their blog). They must list the rules and post the blog award badge in the post.
  2. They must add 7 facts about themself.
  3. They must nominate 15 other bloggers and notify them that they have been nominated

I nominate all of you to receive this award!!!!!!! *applause*

My 7 facts;

  1. In addition to musophobia, I also have tryphobia and as someone who loves SFX makeup I get freaked out when they sneak that kind of makeup on you.
  2. I cannot eat porridge! I have tried and here’s how it goes, 1st spoonful, mmmmppphhh delicious, 2nd spoonful, that tastes a little slimy, 3rd spoonful, I need to puke!
  3. I once lost 15kgs (approximately 33 pounds) in my mid 20s. It was when I had looked my BEST!
  4. I wear a rudraksha locket; a type of seed that is known as the teardrops of Shiva.
  5. Yes, I am Hindu.
  6. No, I don’t prescribe to every Hindu norm because there isn’t really a lot of black and white or definitive rules in Hinduism which is why it is often also referred to as a way of life instead of it as a religion. Although Indians as a community is notorious for being conservative, sometimes even bordering on archaic, Hinduism is far from it!
  7. I don’t know if I have shared this but I have five piercings; 4 on the left ear and another on my right.

  1. I think it’s so cool that you are Hindu! I remember studying Hinduism in school and I adore the religion as a whole. At the end of the day, it’s about being a good person (which is something many religions claim, but not something that they all practice).

  2. Oh gawd, you made me google “tryphobia” and now I’m scarred for life! πŸ˜₯
    Hinduism is so fascinating to me. It’s such a personal belief system – very difficult to define. I especially love learning about all the deities. πŸ™‚
    Congrats on your milestones! Well done!

    • I actually never knew I was tryphobic until someone shared some pictures that gave me nightmares for days. I looked into it and found out about it being a real phobia.
      Hindus ultimately believe in karma! Cause and effect! It is that simple! Oh yes, the deities can provide ardent staunch believers real experiences. Even I have had them!
      Thank you Stashy!!!! ❀

      I do because being a scientist, I only work in a lab. The only time I take them out is when I attend conferences and if I am presenting a paper at a seminar or a conference.

      • Hahaha, my job is pretty cool! That makes me sound like some kind of a superhero!
        I actually pierced them individually over time. The last I did was about 4 years ago I think. I am on the verge of adding another but my piercings have always been out of impulse. Split second decisions I made when I was terribly depressed or absolutely at peace. I am feeling more of the latter now so it is just about time to get another. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
