How exciting, my first award!
Here goes...

1. What are three things you can't leave the house without?

My phone- this thing is attached to me.
My camera- as a blogger, I've learnt that this has to become a second nature.
My lipstick- as a makeup artist and addict, this is a must.

2. If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Invisibility- not only for those moments where you just want to vanish, like an awkward family get together, but think of all the places you could go unnoticed, like a bank...

3. Do you have any weird phobias?

YESSS, and boy have I had some stick for this one.... VOMIT! I have lost count of the amount of times hearing someone say 'I don't feel well' has sent me into a state of panic. I thought I was a right weirdo until a couple of years ago when printed on the front of a newspaper I discovered it was the 5th most common phobia. 

4. What are two colours that you love together?

The only way I know how to answer this question without instantly jumping for my safety net of black and white is to link this question with makeup. My favourite eye-shadow combination is Burnt Orange and Smokey Brown...

5. Do you think more about the past, present, or future?

Well, being a prime example of 'mind running away with you' I will put my hands up at say I'm one of the worlds worst worriers, therefore I find myself thinking about the future and worrying about things that will probably never happen more than anything else.

6. Do you have a favourite pair of shoes?

Any court shoes ever invented ever in the world ever!

7. Do you have any tattoos? If not, would you like to get any done?

No, I'm a blank canvas. I have contemplated it on several occasions. Being a small part Cherokee I have always wanted the words 'Courage' or 'Protection' written somewhere in Cherokee script.

8. What do you love the most about blogging?

Mainly the photography as well as of course the social side of blogging, by nature I am a people watcher, you know, one of those people who sit in a cafe and watch the world go by, I find blogging a great virtual way of doing this, reading about the good times, the bad times, the places people visit, the discovery of a new beauty product... 

9. Are you more of a saint or of a sinner?

I've got to say my halo is well and truly polished, it slips occasionally but I take pride in saying I'm more of a Saint than a Sinner.

10. What did you do last summer vacation?

The thing that sticks out the most about last summer is Bootcamp! I wont be forgetting that experience in a while. The longest week of my life, being dragged out of bed at 5am, enduring 15 hours of hard exercise, being battered and bruised, climbing up and running around numerous mountains, being dragged back to camp ready to sit in an ice bath and then having dinner served to us in the form of a stick of celery. What was I thinking!? I've truly made this sound horrific, but honestly, its got to be one of the best experiences in my life.

11. What makes you happy?

I have to say, my family, they are what make me most happy in life!

What an award!? I've got to say I've really enjoyed answering these questions, sitting down and really thinking about life and provoking thoughts of the past, present and future that I may not have necessarily answered if I'd not had to think about such questions!
A special thanks to Isabela at Fusels for the nomination!


  1. I love this! My superpower fantasy is invisibility, too. "Emetophobia" ... the fear of vomiting ... I live with someone with that problem. But it's really hard not to laugh when he starts dry heaving at the thought/sight/smell of it. Sorry!

    1. It's actually comforting to know I'm not the only 'weirdo' that suffers from emetophobia! It's a real problem and a nuisance at times! ahahah!

  2. I love your answers! I was quite expecting getting something make-up related in that question from you and I have to say I love these eyeshadows :)
