Update: Liebster Blog Award

I've kept forgetting to update this because I've been nominated a few times since I was first nominated. I'm just going to do an update with the new questions since I already did the full tag before.
I believe there was one more person who nominated me for this but I can't seem to find it in my posts. 
I also need to catch up on a versatile blogger award I got and the sunshine award.

Kassica's Questions:
Who/What inspired you to create your blog?
It was kind of an idea I came up with myself because I thought it would be a fun experience. My boyfriend supported me and made me feel more confident about it, which is when I actually started posting. As I began to meet more people, my inspiration came from two lovely ladies who continue to inspire me, Traci and Jayne.

How did you come up with your blog name?
My name is Christa and my nickname is Chrissy. I've been pretty fascinated with Japanese related things and I've always liked the look of their language when it's written out. "Ai" means 'love' in Japanese. Kind of a random thing I put together and it stuck.

What is your favorite food and/or drink?
My favorite food is steak and I love Shirley Temples.. with a lot of grenadine. ;D

What's your hidden talent?
I wouldn't say I really have a hidden talent. I enjoy drawing, digital art, and graphic design. I don't know if I'd say any of those are my talents though, haha.

If you could choose one vacation spot in the entire world, where would you go and why?
Bora bora! It looks so lovely!

What's the weirdest or most exotic thing you've ever eaten?
I guess beef wrapped in grape leaves.

What are your favorite blog posts to read?
I love reading nail posts and hauls.

Which is your colour that best describes you or stands for your personality? 
I think baby blue.. maybe because it's my favorite color.

Who's your celebrity crush?
Probably Zayn Malik.. and no I'm not a crazed 1D fan girl. Haha.

What is something that you take for granted?
I'm not really sure.. I'm sure there's quite a bit I don't show appreciation for everyday and I probably wouldn't realize just how important it was until I lost it.

What's your current outfit?
Pajamas! T-Shirt and shorts.

Lauren's Questions:
1. What is your favourite TV show?

I have a few but I'm really anticipating the return of Dexter!

2. Do you prefer to wear pants or dresses?

3. What is your favourite food?

4. What website(s) do you visit most?
Probably my E-Mail, FLVS, YouTube, and pretty much the blogs on my favorite blog list. (My own blog too, of course)

5. Who is your favourite singer/band?
Currently my favorite singer is Jay Loftus.

6. If you could re-live any moment in your life, what would it be?
I'd probably be happy reliving any moment from my young childhood.

7. If you could meet any person, dead or alive, who would it be?
Faraz! :D

8. What's your favourite season?
Fall or Winter, though Spring is nice too. (How indecisive was that answer?)

9. What is your favourite quote?
"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will." -George Bernard Shaw

10. What is the last book you read?
Of Mice and Men.

11. What's your favourite thing to do?
Talk to my boyfriend and do blog-related stuff! (:

This concludes the two sets of questions by these lovely bloggers who were so sweet and nominated me.
I apologize if I did leave someone else out that nominated me, I tried searching and found the ones I could.

Thanks for reading!


  1. I was wondering what the Ai meant, that's pretty cool!

    So just out of curiosity, how did you meet your boyfriend if you've never 'met' him?

    I also can't get into Twitter. I visit it once in a while but I never stick around for very long. I just don't really get it.

    1. Haha. I remember Traci answered a question about that and I was thinking the same thing. It's really interesting to find the story behind a blog name. (:
      I met him about two and a half years ago, kind of through an online game. He's been a bestfriend ever since and is hopefully *crosses fingers* moving to Florida in November/December. (:
      Haha, I know, right? I post more now because when I instagram a picture I share it to Twitter but I don't post the way some people do.

    2. Yay I hope he does move so you two can be close! I did 3 years long distance with my ex, it's so hard, I totally get what you're going through.

    3. Aww, thank you, Julie! Oh wow, yeah it is.
      It's always good to know you're not the only one who feels/has felt a certain way, especially when it's not such a great feeling.

  2. omg I love how you came up with ChrissyAi. I was wondering about the Ai...My uncle had a dog named Ai and remember he said it meant love haha
    Ooh I love Shirley Temples! I had it for the first time this year!!! I was missing out!
    I always enjoy reading things about fellow bloggers! I love your favorite season answer :P

    1. Aww, thank you. Haha, that's so cool!
      Only this year?? You have! They're so good, right? I want one now..
      Me too, I love getting to know people better. Haha, I couldn't pick just one. ;D
      (Reading this over it looks like I'm so hyper, I'm all over the place)

  3. congrats for the awards hun! you deserve them all :)
    I've always loved your blog name because we have a similar nickname and i love the way you added "Ai", it's so creative and sounds sweet. :)

    I wanna go to Bora Bora too! i might see you there sometime ;P hehe. it's paradise there!

    1. Thank you so much! (:
      Aww, thank you. Haha, I thought that was interesting when I first saw your blog too!
      It is paradise! It looks so amazing and isolated.

  4. I like the fact that I knew about the "ai" part of your blog already ;-) Seriously, I have to get you in touch with some Japanese candy!! I'm work near a Japanese Candy store!
    You know, I only started eating steak because of my fiance, being the white boy that he is, and I cannot get enough of it now! And I like it pretty much rare which is surprising!

    I hope you and Faraz will eventually be in the same city! He sounds Persian?

    1. Hehe ;D Ooh! I really need to come visit you then! LOL.
      Oh gosh Jayne.. I swear I like you more and more every comment you leave! I love my steak rare/medium rare. :D

      Thanks, me too.
      Persian, you say? Haha, his parents are from Pakistan. (He was born in New York)

    2. I only ask because where I live there are a lot of people from Iran and my ex was Persian. We dated for 4 years so a name like Faraz gets my radar going!

      Or maybe...we can get you a little Japanese-related birthday pressie??? Get ready to say kawaiiiii!

    3. Oooh, okay. Haha!
      O:! Kawaii! Hehe :D Now I'm all excited!

  5. Hi! I followed your blog! :) Found you through Kassica. :)

    Maybe you can check out mine too!? :) And follow if you like!
    ps. I am also having a birthday giveaway! It is open internationally. ♥ TIA!

    1. Thank you for following!
      I'm actually already following you. (: Your blog is so cute!

  6. Omg I want to cry right now, I had this long comment typed out but I am at a hotel and for some dumb reason the internet hotel logged in and I lost it all! I even pressed back and it was gone. -_____-

    I had steak today and you my friend, sound like an alcoholic! hahah jk,
    but I can tell you really love steak!

    I didn't know that Ai meant love, that's pretty cool! Whenever I came to your blog or read your blog name I always said "Chrissy A I" probably cause I didn't know how to pronounce Ai. Speaking of love, I tried to learn a bunch of ways to say I love you, so far I have remembered quite a few odd languages!

    Getting awards is great but sometimes I just feel like no one wants to read this stuff so I neglect to post the awards! But I enjoyed reading about you!

    Btw, I liked your indecisive answer about what season you like!
