I recently wrote about why I love Twitter so much and yes, it was Twitter that introduced me to the blogging world. Now, I have become addicted to blogging for so many reasons as well. I feel incredibly honored and excited that my post was read by some super awesome international blogger and the doll nominated me for a Liebster award, you should check out her amazing answers here. Feel like I have a new bestie across the seas. So much fun! And yet again, this social media universe is expanding.
1.What’s the best thing you’ve ever given up?
I want to say chocolate but I couldn’t possibly ever give that up. When I was 12 I gave up ballet just before I was about to start dancing in the point shoes. Ballet is an incredibly graceful and beautiful dance discipline and I miss being able to do the splits. I loved Ballet so much and when I went to boarding school I gave it up. Sad face
2.How many times have you used profanity in the past 48 hours lol.
About three times in the car. I have a bad habit with road rage. I am working on it.
3. In your opinion what makes a woman beautiful?
Confidence and an open friendly nature. I truly believe that a confident woman who knows who she is and is kind to herself and others is the most beautiful woman in the world.
4.What’s the last thing you laughed at?
I laughed at a really sweet joke a new twitter sister’s husband made at an aircon launch. He said that the aircon was “cool”. It took me a second to get and then I just packed out laughing. I love laughing, it is one of my favorite kinds of medicine.
5.What is your all time favorite food?
Chocolate. Did I mention chocolate? Cookies are a close second so I guess Chocolate chip cookies would be my favourite food.
6.What color are your nails?
Dark Dahlia from CND Shellac
7.Will you be swinging with the trends and trying an orange lipstick this Spring?
I’m a red head, so probably not. Some makeup trends are just not for me. I would however love to try this on a client.
8.What’s one thing you hate about makeup?
Cleaning my makeup brushes. I hate having to clean them and I have to do it often with my makeup clients. In fact if I could invent one thing, it would be a makeup brush dish washer except specifically made for makeup tools and brushes.
9.With all the technology today do you still have times that you prefer a good ol’ pen and paper?
I love making lists. Lists on a piece of paper are my favorite. Actually, anything to do with stationary gets me excited.
10. When someone hurts your feelings, how do you usually bounce back?
I try and understand where they are coming from, feel the hurt and then let it go and move on. 9 out of 10 times, the person is not aware that they have done something to hurt me and I will often tell them when they have, let it go and we go from there. Let bygones be bygones.
11. What’s your definition of success?
When you can look at all the components of your life and genuinely say you are happy with what you have. Too often we worry about what we don’t have instead of focusing on all the good things we do have.
