Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers that were nominated. 
Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog. 

My Questions: 
1. What is your passion in life? 
Oh wow. Right off the bat with the big question. I think if I knew the answer to this... my life would be drastically different. 

2. What is your favorite beauty item? 
Sunscreen. I haven't decided what kind yet, but I really truly believe in the power of sunscreen. 

3. What is one thing you can't live without? 
Without any smartass answers like running water, electricity or air conditioning, I think my phone. My phone keeps track of all my schedules, grocery lists, pictures, appointments... I'd be lost without it. 

4. What is your dream job?
Again, if I knew this... In vague terms, I'd want something challenging--a job that can change as I do. One that will always continue teaching me new things. 

5. Why did you start blogging? 
'Cause I was bored. And 'cause some of my friends started. I really wanted to keep track of the makeup items I was buying and the clothes I was wearing. My blog is also a not-so-private journal of my thoughts. 

6. If you could do one thing right now what would it be? 
Travel. I won't even ask for an exotic Hawaiian or Ireland vacation. If I could just go visit one of my friends in San Francisco... or Chicago... that'd be great. 

7. Curly or straight hair? 
I complain about my straight hair, but honestly, if you gave me curly hair I wouldn't know what to do with it. 

8. Best Instagram app? 
I actually don't use Instagram!

9. What is your favorite quote? 
Time you enjoyed wasting was not wasted at all I've posted that one on the blog before too!

10. What inspires you? 
Honestly? Bloggers. Bloggers have such an enthusiastic energy about them that I adore. The photography, videos and writing that gets generated is both motivational and inspirational. 

11. What is your best feature? 
My best personality feature is probably my empathy. Even though I don't actually understand much, I think I am very understanding that there's a lot of different people out there with different upbringings and perspectives.

I choose to tag: 
Postpositions on Prepositions
Mango Rabbit Rabbit

  12. Oh, congrats! I absolutely loved reading our answers--I feel the same uncertainty about life now. Ah, I'd love to travel too. And you question about the most underrated thing about winter intrigues me--certainly a different way to think!

  13. great post!

    I have an ongoing giveaway on my blog, please join! :) xx Miss Beatrix (

  14. I liked reading your answers a lot. Even though you have some uncertainty about things, it's good to start thinking about the questions, no one ever has all the answers. I totally agree about the curly hair, when mine decides it should curl I have no idea how to treat it {this only happens once a month tops}.

  15. Oh thankyou so much for tagging me I will do this at some stage. LOve your answers too and the questions you have asked x

  16. Thanks for sharing & tagging me, such a great answer, very interesting to read.

  17. Thanks for the tag! I enjoyed reading this about you. My favorite Q&A is #10 because I totally agree! :)

    I'll be sure to re-post this soon!


    P.S., Thanks for your sweet comment about the wallpapers! I work really hard on them and have fun making them, but honestly... I didn't think anyone used them. I'm so glad to know there is at least one person out there who does!!! :)


Thanks for your comments!
