A tag and award

I have an award and tag that is long overdue. With the Bathurst trip I will write about it next post. We didn't really do much anyway.

I received this award from the gorgeous and talented Andhari of Insomniac Lolita. It appears that I must answers some questions and pass the award on. Thank you!

1. Who is Your Style Icon?
I've always loved Natalie Portman's style and more recently Emma Watson.

2. Which is your favourite socialite book?
I don't think I've read any socialite book before.

3. Favourite Party Theme?
I have to say masquerade. I've been to a few and it's so much fun to make the masks. Plus there are some gorgeous masks to buy out there.
Made by me on Polyvore.

4. Go to Halloween Costume?
We don't really do Halloween here. But if I must, some type of fairytale character.

5. Extravagance you cannot live without?
My iPhone and Mac. I didn't need to buy a Mac or have an iPhone.

6. Living Person you admire.
My parents. They are the best examples of who I want to be as a person.

7. Greatest Fear(s)
Fear of failure. I think this is really detrimental because it stops me from doing what I want to do.

8. Traits you deplore in yourself
My procrastination and constantly comparing myself to everyone else. Jason says I compare myself way to much.

9. Which talent you would most love to have?
I would love to be one of those people who can whip up anything. For example they need a summer dress so they sew it themselves. They need a scarf so they knit or crochet one. They are going to a party and need a hostess gift so they bake something. I guess if I really worked at it, it might happen someday :)

10. Greatest Achievement?
I think would be getting where I am. Sure I've made plenty of mistakes over the years but I'm proud that I am quite happy with myself and I hope that one day I will truly be who I want to be.

I give this award to... Fashion, Art and Other Fancies, Diana of OneCraftyFox, Erin of Pughs News, Megan of Time After Tea, Jasmine of Lavender's Green, Anastasia of Anastasia Drawing and Dreaming.

And I was tagged by the lovely and sweet Rachael from It's Simple Love. In this tag there are 8 random questions that I must answer, then I must write my own 8 random questions and pass them on :) Thanks!

1. What Band is your "go-to-band" in the car?
I don't actually have a car but in Jason's car we tend to listen to anything kind of sad. That's our go to music for some reason :) There's no band in particular that I can think of...maybe Linkin Park?

2. What is your pet peeve?
I hate lateness. Being quite punctual myself I get really agitated when someone is late (and they don't msg to say they will be).

3. Who is your celebrity crush?
Ahh this changes all the time. I guess at the moment Sam Worthington, he is so typically Aussie. And for some weird reason I have a Draco Malfoy thing going on so I would say Tom Felton (I've been in the weirdest Harry Potter mood) and he's so nice in interviews. And I think I will always like Leo DiCaprio. Girl crush is also my style icons Natalie Portman and Emma Watson.

4. How would your friends describe you?
Ahh happy, thoughtful and sweet? Hopefully creative, friendly and loyal too :)

5. Where is the furthest place you have been?
Not too far. I guess the Philippines would be the furthest place I've been. I haven't travelled much yet.

6. What's the most important thing in a friendship to you?
Trust and being able to just hang out and have fun without feeling like I have to be someone else.

7. If you could change your name what would it be?
Hmm...never really thought about it. I did rename myself Graciana at one point :)

8. Unibrow or mustache if you had to have one?
I would choose the unibrow lol

I will pass this tag to... Jasmine of Lavender's Green (An award and tag for my new good bloggy friend), Joana of Ecological Storyteller, Caroline of Coeur de La, Sierra of Ocean Dreams, Mara of M Loves M, Alely of Oh Sweetlee Me, Amy of Junghwa by Amy Stewart, Belen of Belen:Beh-LEHN

My questions for you
1. What's your favourite fairytale?
2. Do you prefer Mac or PC?
3. How would you describe yourself in 5 words?
4. Heels or flats?
5. What's your biggest dream?
6. Your favourite book character?
7. Are you the type of person who keeps their feelings inside or lets it out?
8. Who is your role model?

You girls are all lovely! Have a great rest of week. It's Game One with State of Origin (rugby league) tonight. Queensland vs. New South Wales. If you live in either of these states you will understand how big this is. I have to admit I'm a fence sitter. Born in NSW but moved to QLD at such a young age I don't really feel any loyalty for NSW but technically I should be going for them :)

Melody said...

Have you received my letter yet?

Anastasia said...

Erin {pughs' news} said...

Thanks so much Gracie! I love being tagged for these awards. Such fun. I'll get working on my answers soon!

Claire Kiefer said...

I'm with you on the iphone and mac . . . I could never go back! xoxo

Jenni said...

Beautiful blog!!!
I have always wanted to go to a masquerade ball...ever since I saw Labyrinth as a kid and fell in love with it. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE Emma Watsons style!
PS-I'm having a giveaway on my blog for a beautiful little carafe!!!

GRACIE! You're back.. :D

I am lovingggg Emma Watson, too. She's grown into such a beautiful woman. She's exuding beauty in all her recent pictures.
I love the little collage you made of masks. Does that take up time?

Being able to whip up anything is making yourself so independent. Like, if at the last minute, I realize my shirt is too tight, I usually ask my mumma to loosen it from the seams. I can't even do that! :/

Emma Watson wows me beyond explanation!

I love to read this questions and answers. It's a nice and gentle way to sneak a little into the other life, obviously because they allow and I love to see how different or not can people be, what their options are.

Thank you very much for tagging me and award me, I'll surely do it in my next post. I don't post often, but in about two or three days I'll do it my dear.

Now I take the chance to let you know that I am going to send you a letter today.

Caro said...

I feel naked without my phone.

Serina Paris said...

I like your responses, I've never been to a masquerade party, seems like it would be fun!

its simple love said...

Agreed with the lateness. So annoying! But good for you for being a loyal friend. It seems like you are a one of a kind friend.


BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

Natalie does have divine style!

Jess said...

I love these, cos you learn all sorts of random things about a person. I'm not sure if I share your feelings about Draco Malfoy though! Have a great weekend x

x Jasmine
