Please do check out their wonderful blogs.

Some of you might be wondering what the Liebster Blog Award is, others are probably thinking NO NOT AN ANOTHER LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD NOMINATION POST! Sorry guys but I had to. 😛 For those of to you that are not aware of the Liebster Blog Award, don’t worry I was as clueless, as you are a few days ago.

Thank you! That being said lets dive right in.

Sasha’s Questions

What is your biggest goal in life?     To live life to the fullest and to be happy and content with what I have. That sounds sort of clichéd I know, but it’s true.

What is your favorite book?    This is so hard; I’m a book worm I love to read. I read anything; I can get my hands on. I could make a list, but I won’t, I’m going to have to say Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and The Holy Women by Qaisra Shahraz.

Do you enjoy sports? If so, which one?   If watching counts, than YES, I enjoy watching Football (soccer).

Red wine or white wine?  Neither. I don’t drink.

If you could be a super hero, which one will you be?   Superwomen is the obvious choice! Especially if I get to hear the John Williams theme song when I fly or do something heroic.

Which place in the world do you want to visit?     I want to travel the whole world.

Favorite high end and favorite drugstore makeup brands. Favorite High end brands have to be Mac, Nars, and favourite drugstore brands have to be Makeup Revolution, Makeup Geek, Sleek and L’Oreal.

Are you a morning person or a night person? Definitely a Night owl.

What is your passion?  Hhhmmm that’s a difficult question because I’m passionate about a lot of things, but I guess recently I become passionate about blogging.

Ellie’s Questions

What’s your real first name? Abida

Do you want to be called otherwise and what would your ideal name be, if so? I’m happy with Abidah, but most of my friends and family have nicknames for me (but we won’t get into that) 😛

What’s the mood you are in right now?  I’m in a Happy mood right now.

Do you love your blog or does your blog love you? Hhmm. Never thought about it like that. I guess I love my blog.

Who is your secret hero? My family are my secret heroes always there to save me whenever I need saving.

What place do you think is worth travelling to? Dubai.

    Great answers! I’m learning lots about you (which is always very exciting!) Here’s my answers:

    If you could meet one person who would it be and why. Gandhi. Everything he did was inspirational and he changed the world.

    Why did you start your blog? To talk about life for a teacher and musician from the UK living in Bangladesh

    Who/what inspired you’re Blog. When I started training to be a writer I took on the blog to help me practice. Now I have two blogs and run several others for various businesses so don’t have so much time any longer but still love them!

    What is your favourite season? Spring. In Bangladesh I love all six seasons EXCEPT Shitkal (Winter).

    What would you like to be remembered for? I would hope, having a kind heart and being a loving, loyal friend.

    If you had to choose between love and money what would you choose and why? Love. Everytime. Which is why I’m still poor!

    If you were able to time travel would you go to the past or the future and why? Past. Definitely the past. I’m in love with the Victorian/ pre-WWII era.

    If you had one wise what would it be? Did you mean wish?! That would be that Allah always looks after my family no matter what the future might hold for me.

    If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Bangladesh. Second would be Darjeeling, India.

    Who’s your favourite author? Soooo many!! I’ll list a few – Terry Pratchett, Franz Kafka, Dickens, Lucy Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables is one of my all-time favourite books – yes I know that’s very girly isn’t it?!), James Joyce, Rudyard Kipling, Khaled Hosseini – the list goes on and on and on an…

    If I could meet one person?
    I don’t know who it’d be, haven’t really given it much thought

    Why did I start my blog?
    I’ve been dealing with depression since my freshman year of hs and it got worse and worse, so I just decided to let my emotions out into writing and posting them.

    Who inspired me?
    My sisters and author, so she pushed me to post most of them

    Favorite season?
    Fall, definitely fall

    What would I wanna be remembered for?
    How nice I am maybe? How I didn’t give up when everything looked terrible, and of course, my writing haha

    Love or money?
    Money comes and goes, all everyone is really looking for is love. So yea, I’d choose love. I feel like people are more complete with it

    Time travel?
    I’m a history major so defiantly into the past, I love history

    One wish?
    To make sure I never leave Islam

    Live anywhere?
    Definitely Turkey, it’s just so beautiful there and the culture is so nice!

    Favorite author?
    I don’t think I have one, I like certain books but not the author themselves.

    And I wanted to let you know you’re blog is really nice! You get involved with your audience and people really like it. Inshallah all goes well for you! Asalamualaykum

    Hi Abidah! Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. I loved this one the most:

    “I don’t think colours can define femininity or masculinity, colours are just colours.”

    It’s so true. Colors are just colors. 🙂

    Hope you could visit Dubai soon, too. Happy blogging! :*

    Salaam I can’t believe you have only had your blog a week and get this much response! Masha’Allah that is amazing! Maybe you could share some tips on how to reach other bloggers? I’m keen to attract a good following on my blog, any advice/help would be great. I too would also like to travel the world and Beauty and the Beast is also my fave Disney film 🙂 I have just done a Liebster Award post before seeing this so i will answer your questions here 🙂

    If you could meet one person who would it be and why. Erm I’m not sure, there’s noone (in this world) that I am craving to meet as of yet.

    Why did you start your blog? I have experienced a lot in life and never really leaned on anyone for support, writing became a way to express my feelings in a sense and when I realised people could relate to what I wrote I decided to make a blog. I made my blog with the hope of helping myself as well as anyone else along the way. I also have a brain that ticks over all the time and needed a place to keep all my writing 😊

    Who/what inspired you’re Blog. – To be honest I just had a thought one day about starting a blog, i put it off for a while but then finally created one.

    What is your favourite season? – I feel inclined to say Summer but in the UK we don’t have much of one. When i think about it I would say Winter. I like coming home after work, having a hot shower and relaxing in front of the fire in my PJ’s. There’s just something so warm and homely about that.

    What would you like to be remembered for? – My kindness towards others.

    If you had to choose between love and money what would you choose and why? – Love. Money sometimes has a habit of changing people, it’s also temporary. As they say, love conquers all.

    If you were able to time travel would you go to the past or the future and why? – Past! I would love to be able to make certain changes and spend more time with my mom.

    If you had one wish what would it be? – This is hard i have two so I’m going to be cheeky and say them both :). I wish that my mom could come back to this world and I wish happiness and success for all my loved ones, especially my younger brothers,

    If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? – In my own home, where I am now.I strongly believe I am where Allah believes is best for me.

    Who’s your favourite author? Ermm I ike reading crime novels so I would say Martina Cole and James Patterson. I also love Yasmin Mogaheads book.

      Walaikum salam. Thank you 🙂 It’s been a month since I’ve started blogging I am suprised myself didn’t expect the respons I’m getting, I didn’t think people would want to read what I wrote. I wish I can give you advice/tips, but I don’t think I know how to I’m not experienced enough to do so. I tend to read a lot of blogs and interact with other bloggers through comments.
      Thank you for answering the questions I loved reading them I even got to know a little more about you. ☺ I love reading your posts, there something about them that makes me want to keep reading, think I’ve read over half of them so far, hopefully will read them all soon. Keep doing what you’re doing writing you’re an amazing writer. ☺:)☺

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, because it’s helped me to locate yours. You have some great material here, especially the post about hating shopping. The two poems I read were also excellent: they’re well-written and have important messages.
