Blog Awards #15 & #16 (A Tiny Announcement)

Blog awards are essentially tags by bloggers in order to share and discover blogs they find interesting and I absolutely love receiving them!

Before all that I just wanted to make a tiny announcement.

About 40 posts I wrote when I initially started FiercePaint were never shared on my social media because I only decided to make FiercePaint public after I had written enough content. What I want to do is to re-shoot all the pictures because looking back, I feel like my shots have improved so much. What I’ll do is re-blog these posts with proper pictures. Also, I’d only do them for reviews as I feel like that would be the most advantageous. So, over the next few posts expect these old posts upgraded and re-blogged! 😀 . I also wanted to post them on Instagram as well.

Speaking of Instagram, do follow me on all my social media (#shamelessselfpromotion 😛 );

7 facts about me (I’m running out of facts);

  1. The longest TV series I have followed is Survivor! I did loose in touch for a while because they stopped airing it locally but with the gift of the Internet, I have been able to catch up on all seasons! FYI, the 33rd season premiere just aired! 16 years on air and counting!
  2. The most I have spent for (a single makeup product) so far is my MAC Viva Glam Lipstick which I paid MYR 74 for. Every other high end makeup product I have, I either bought with a sale or was gifted to me.
  3. I initially dreamed of becoming a fashion designer. I still do have some knowledge from when I used to read everything fashion.
  4. However, my very first ambition was to be a scientist. Lo and behold, I now am!
  5. The single best cocktail I ever had was a concoction of chocolate and liqueur called Chocolicious! I have never had anything close to it and the place that used to make it took it off the menu (the place doesn’t exist anymore to begin with) so I can never have it again!!!
  6. I have published scientific work! Look for my name, Harivaindaran, on Google Scholar!
  7. Fine, I am 31 years old!!!! There you go, mystery solved!!!

As for nominating others for both the awards, I nominate all of you!!! Do tag me if and when you do!!!
