Housekeeping

Thursday, December 9, 2010

I take pictures of random things, like this guy walking proudly through Cinque Terre with a polka dot speedo, his head held high and his hat and snorkling gear. And also this older man with a swan hat. Like as in a hat that looks like a swan.
Was tagged by Flirty 30 with a blog award and quiz...I generally fail at following up with these, I'm so bad at them - but I'm giving it a go now because I was also tagged by Allister Beemilk teeths and PinkOrchids for ones so it's like I'm cornered! (jk) So thank you all! But I'm accumulating them all here and dealing with them all in this one place efficient like. And there is one from Ashley from forever ago that I haven't done yet but am going to... and it's a really good one and I'm surprised she still talks to me since I haven't done it. Actually, I think when I failed to follow up was when she started making fun of me for doing things like spelling out the slash and the whole w i d e thing. I'm on her list I think.

1. Why did you create your blog?
To remember things that I find that are cool! It's pretty deep.

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?
Let's see, I follow and like a big variety - people who have become like friends and I so enjoy catching up on what they are thinking or liking on any given day. I love bloggers who are  themselves and provide interesting content but it's most fun when we click or get each other. 

3. Favourite make-up brands
I'm not big in to makeup but I'll probably never switch from Bare Minerals even though I read somewhere it's probably killing me because of the small particles that are inhaled...ummm....I need proof though. I also tend to learn things the hard way?

4. Favourite clothing brands
I love the store here called vero modo - also - I really like Urban Outfitters, topshop, the usual. don't judge me.

5. Your indispensable make-up product?
Mascara

6. Your favourite colour
Green.

7. Your perfume? 
Summer=Nina Ricci & Winter=Lolita Lempicka

8. Your favourite film?
My mind goes completely blank when asked this question, I have no clue. Maybe 'Once' because I loved the soundtrack.

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
Australia - It's so foreign to me, I have no idea what it's like. Except, I'll never want to fly there because I hate planes.

10. Write the last question and answer it yourself: I'm stealing Flirty 30's because it's fun..Secret Dream? To be a back up dancer for all the famous pop stars. I KNOW. (dreaming big huh!)

P.S
And don't miss the Ande Mönster Giveaway HERE. For real. I'm genuinely reminding you in case you didn't see it! 

Discount Code for 20% off Ande Mönster Vintage is "IheartVillage". Go ahead, snoop around. (you have to say it like that guy in Ace Ventura)

one of the things i remember from my childhood is stealing a spray of my mom's nina ricci perfume. it's her favorite and it's sacred, none of us were allowed to use it. :) then of course, i grew up and IS allergic to perfume! go figure!

I love Vero Moda! And the Zara here is so much better than the Zara at home :)

I loved the first two photos. such confident MEN.

It it's a long way to fly to Australia, but it's so worth it. maybe get dramamine so you can sleep most of the flight?

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Congrats for all the awards -- popular girl! -- and fun interview!
Those photos are reallly great too, especially the proud, polka-dotty guy and the commentary that went with it! He MUST be confident to wear those with a smile ;)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Mascara for sure! Nooo, is Bare Minerals really bad for you because you inhale it?

PinkOrchids said...

*gasp* at number 3!! I didn't know that! This means i'm going to die too from mineral make-up!! Haha!! And I can relate to the "learn things the hard way" I think i'm pretty pro at that point!
In regards to your comment; I laughed so hard! =) xXx

Honestly, I'm impressed that you were able to nail down favorites! Whenever someone asks me about a "favorite," I freak. I can't pinpoint just one!

Valerie said...

Haha, you're so funny. When people ask me my favorite brands of clothes I think the same thing, "don't judge, I'm on a budget".

Lovely interview :)

Hollie said...

I'm secretly afraid of dying in a plane crash. I almost convinced bryan we should take separate flights to london, so we wouldn't leave or child an orphan. lol

rouli said...

great post!!!!!

kisssssss

Buckeroomama said...

I loved reading this. :)

You know what? I think you should just get over your fear of flying and visit Australia. I have a feeling that you would LOVE it, --long plane ride and all!

Ann said...

Congratulations on the awards, and I'm so bad at these too (and need to deal with some from a while back, yikes!) Loved your answers and also finding out more about you! :)

Coco Coterie said...

Congratulations on your award. I liked reading your answers. Hmmm...was watching infomercial early this morning on Sheer Minerals, or was it Sheer Essentials? Well, whichever, I thought I'd look it up and order some, but if it's going to give me black lung... :) ha ha Have a super day, sunshine ~ xox Alexandra

little t said...

What's this about bare minerals? Eep...sounds scary! Haha.

I would LOVE to go to Australia some day. It just seems like such a fun place to visit!

Nikki said...

Wait a minute...why is he in a speedo in the snow?

Christianna said...

I love your answers! I'm gonna die from mineral makeup too, so we can party when we die!

Hahaha, congrats on all the awards! Gosh spread some of those awards around why don't you ;)

Erika Grover said...

I LOVED this post! That picture is hilarious he is just out for a stroll in his undies it looks like lol. And the swan on his head?! Too funny! Good pic captured.

I hate planes & flying too! Terrified...but I'm trying to conquer a lot of my fears so I've decided flying while intoxicated is not half bad...haha

Catita said...

Hey it is so cool you got the same tag! And funny how without knowing we answered the same about our love and obsession over the bare minerals. I had no clue about the side effects but than again with the amounts of lip gloss I ingest which contain petroleum I think I have another reason to die earlier. And I didn't know you were scared of planes! How did you get to Switzerland hun? Don't worry, it seems scary but as a girl who studied aerospace engineering I can tell you it is the safest mean of transportation...and you've probably heard it but look at it this way, if something does go wrong you'll barely have time to notice it. Not sure if it is helping you but just GO to Australia and enjoy! I have friends in Melbourne and they recommend their city of course!

E said...

Green is the best.

I'm with you on the Bare Minerals, so we can die from small particles together.

Way to be efficient-like. I dig it. :)

gretchenmist said...

fun read~ am with you re mascara and green. don't blame u re the long flight, but come to australia!!

Mia Delessi said...

That's a really nice and fun quizz. I'm not in to make uo too, my skin is very sensite, that's why I only wear an eyeliner and eyeshadows.

By the way, those are my favourites perfumes.

PursuitOfLLT said...

i loved vero modo when i was abroad!

and i'm with you. don't judge my target sweater or my old navy jacket i love!

Amy R. said...

Love your quiz answers, I think you can totally still be a back-up dancer for pop bands...totally! I love the pic of the man walking up the steps, you just captured a moment in life that will never happen again exactly as you found it, cool:)

LyddieGal said...

I'm really bad when it comes to answering tag questions as well, I'm sure we all are, and you'll be forgiven!

mienkintoshfairie said...

I love the random picture. Your interview was very entertaining for me, I laughed so much! I wasn't afraid to fly until the ridiculous past 5 or so years...

Liz said...

Oh my, dying seems like the truly hard way to learn something! One place I really want to go is New Zealand, mainly because there airline is incredible. No joke. I took it from London to LA and it was the best 11 hours in the sky, ever.

Ashley said...

hahaha...yeah, maybe that IS why I make fun of you :)

I think I kind of forgot about the questionnaire I tagged you in :P But if you did it, that would make me happy. But it wouldn't make me stop poking fun at you. But deep down I think you like it. hehehe.
