Soooo my friend over at love, maisie (hey girl hey) gave me "The Real Neat Blog Award" which is pretty awesome. Thanks so much, Maisie! So now it's my turn to go up to the podium, say thanks to all of my wonderful family and friends, and answer my nominated questions before picking the next lucky winners of The Real Neat Blog Award...
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows AND HELL YES. I don't know how many times I've read the Harry Potter series but I always go running back to it when I want a chilled out evening with a cup of hot chocolate. It's unlikely that I am the first blogger to say this, but J.K. Rowling is as magical as her books and I don't think I can ever get bored of them.
How would you define your personal style?
An absolute mess. I can't stick to one style and my wardrobe is covered in mis-matched clothes but I don't think I can part with any of it. Some days I am all cute and sparkly, on others dark and mystical. Everything fits into gyaru, though (a Japanese fashion substyle for those who haven't heard of it) so I guess I could say that I'm a gyaru chameleon.
Where is your favourite place to eat out?
Oooh this is a tough one because I love so many restaurants as I'm a huge fan of good food. I do love Prezzo though, and it broke my heart when I moved away into a place that doesn't have one (don't worry Prezzo, we will be together once more).
What is your must-have beauty product that you could not live a day without?
Eyebrow liner. I can't stand having messy eyebrows and most days I just go bare-faced but as long as my brows are done then I'll be fine. I'm still experimenting with different brands so if you know of a cruelty-free alternative, please leave a comment below!
How do you find the time to balance blogging/work/personal life?
I don't. Seriously, I really don't know how I do it but I have at least one day a month where I'm bedridden from being overworked. You'd think that I'd be used to this by now and I can't imagine what my life was like before when I blogged at least twice a week. Never again.
I'm trying to get better at it by doing blog things on one day, personal stuff on another, but it doesn't always work out... Any tips would be awesome!
Where was the last place you visited that you haven't been before?
The House of MinaLima. I actually blogged about this and it was the best start of 2017. I was surrounded by beautiful artwork from the Harry Potter franchise and could've spent my whole day there.
Who are your three favourite bloggers?
I actually dreaded this question because in all honesty, hands on heart, I haven't been able to find just three. There are so many bloggers that I love for very different things - lifestyle, beauty, fashion, and even travel - that I simply can't narrow it down. I think in future I might dedicate a whole post to my inspirations though!
