For this award you:

5. Make sure you let those you gave the award to know that you awarded them.
1. What is your go to makeup product?
If I had to pick just one makeup product it would be eyeliner, specifically my Physician's Formula Gel Liner in black. I would love to pick some kind of concealer or foundation because my skin is usually covered with acne scars and discoloration but I feel that eyeliner definitely gives me the illusion of bigger, more awake eyes.
2. What was your favorite fashion trend of 2011?
Trends seem to repeat or overlap every year with few changes so it's hard to pick a favorite. I have a lot of fashion trend favorites but some of the most wearable ones are military inspired pieces and pops of color.
3. What is your favorite dessert?
My favorite dessert would definitely be durian ice cream. Yes, that's right. The stinky fruit that most people can't stand to be in the same room with. I love durian and the ice cream is just the best way to end a dinner! Too bad it's so hard to find it and when I do, it usually costs an absurd amount of money for a scoop of the stuff.
4. Favorite color?
I never had a favorite color and as I get older I definitely have favorite colors for different things. I love taupe eyeshadows and liners, coral pink blushes, and neutral clothes. My first instinct is to say my favorite color is pink simply because my room is very pink.... I guess this one is undecided.
5. What is your middle name?
I don't have a middle name. That was an easy question!
6. What was the last song you listened to?
It Will Rain by Bruno Mars. My cousins and I were trying to sing it!
Something you don't know about me yet:
It's probably the most basic thing you could know about me but I just never mentioned it on my blog or in my videos. Only one or two people who have emailed me know my name! So... here goes... my name is... Kar Yi. Kar Yi is my entire first name. Yi is not a middle name and it's pronounced "car yee". Even though I was born and raised in America I never thought about changing my name. It has no meaning really and my parents simply romanized it from my Chinese name. If I had a "normal" name, I definitely would have used it sooner but for some reason I find it really intimidating to have my strange name online.... I have no idea why I feel that way. But now you know! Feel free to address me by my name if you take the time to read my blog and if you comment :) I definitely feel like I've made a few blogging friends since starting this journey and I think I feel comfortable enough to let people know my actual name.
