Liebster Award

I got this Liebster Award from Rienberry yesterday!!!
To be honest I don't know what it is all about so I Google it,
hoping that I could find its origin but instead, I found the
original rules of the award. The original rules says that you have to
thank your Liebster Award presenter on your blog, link it back to the  blogger
who gave it to you, tag another 5 bloggers that have less than 3,000 readers.
 After clickingthe link  that Rienberry's left on my comment box, I noticed
the difference between the old and new rules. I don't know how
the changes made but I'm just gonna follow the new rules though. haha

This Liebster Award is somewhat of a Chain message
(a blogger to blogger post) which can help your blog to be recognized :)


Here are the rules:
1. Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must also answer the 11 questions the 'tagger' has set for them.
3. They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
4. They must then choose 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers
 and tag them in their post.
5. These lucky bloggers must then be told.
6. There's no tag backs.

1. I was born on the month of February.
2. I have a weird childhood nickname which is "Bunek". I don't know
what does it mean and who's the mastermind behind that nickname.
3. I have 2 NSO birth certificate with 2 different first name on it
(Maria Neri and Maria Regina Neri) I used the latter one though.
4.  I wish I have Inara George's and Adele's voice.
5. I don't have the talent to dance, sing, or draw :(
6. I'm such a pain in the ass during PMS.
7. I want to donate blood and get a tattoo.
8. I can't leave the house without a handkerchief.
9. I'm 5'5 1/2" inches tall and M - L body size.
10. I got my undercut hairstyle last May and I want to shave it again :)
11. I am a thrift shop and vintage addict.

Q & A with  Rien
1.) What is your favorite blog?
Can we change it from blog to blogs? It's hard to choose one eh. haha :)
I love The Fashionista Commuter it's fun reading Anagon's blog parang 
ang genuine ng pagkakasulat nya. I also love The Plump PinayI admire  
their advocacy towards body love and self appreciation.
 Drowning EquiliriumsDeath by Platforms A Beautiful Mess
and The Clothes Horse  are also my favorite blogs :)

2.) What is your favorite item in your closet?
My off white tutu skirt that I found on a thrift shop. 
I alter it so it'll be more wearable. See the photo HERE

3.) Why did you start a blog?
Mainly because I just want to be friends with the bloggers
 that I really admire and to explore what my style really is.

4.) What are your dreams?
Someday, I want to have my own thrift shop, swim with a 
whale shark, and have a food truck. I think the last one
 is impossible though. haha :)

5.) What do you think of Rienberry?
I'm a reader of her blog. I thinks she's nice and there's something 
extraordinary with her. I'm looking forward to meet her.

6.) What do you like the most about yourself, physically 
and in terms of personality?
Parang pang Miss Universe na question ah. 
Physically, I like my all natural curly hair. In terms of personality, 
I think I'm funny enough to make my friends laugh.

7.) What is your least favorite meal of the day?
I don't have a least favorite meal because I love to eat.. A LOT!
but I'm disappointed if the breakfast is just a plain sunny side up 
and fried rice. There must be anything else aside 
from sunny side up. haha :)

8.) Florals or aztec?
I don't have a lot of florals or aztec print in my closet, 
but I'll go for florals.

9.) What keeps you motivated to keep blogging on?
My favorite blogs, readers and every inspirations that I stumble 
upon in real world and in world wide web. :)

10.) Why is your blog entitled "I'm a vintage bee"?
I love anything vintage and thrift shop so I want to include it on my blog
 name and for the "bee", girls are called as a "peanut or bee" right, 
think it doesn't sound good if it's "i'm a vintage peanut" haha 
so I opted for "bee" and I love this duo named "the bird and the bee".

11.) What is your most favorite thing in this world?
My camera. I can document anything and take a photo of the things, 
places, and people I love. I can't draw but at least I can take 
good photographs somehow. :)
