11 Questions from Simona Moona
1 - Why did you start your blog?
I have to be honest here don't I? Okay...I was really bored so one day I just woke up and decided to start a blog. Seriously, that's what happened. Sure it took a bit to find a good web building site and some deciding on what I actually wanted to blog about, but I'm very happy with my past self's spontaneous actions for the moment. My blogs are places where I can just go and write about - often times - materialistic things, or just write; they're reprieves from my everyday mundane.
2 - What is your favourite quote?
"Those who stand for nothing, fall for anything" - Alexander Hamilton
"Some people say, "Never let them see you cry." I say, if you're so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone." - Tina Fey. For the record I love Bossypants and if I could quote the whole thing I would. In fact, for this question imma put my favourite quotes as "See all of Bossypants by Tina Fey".
3 - If you had to choose from not eating sweets for a month or not going shopping for a week, which would you choose?
Easy, I wouldn't shop for a week. No one dares take away my sugar, it's practically the only thing keeping me awake for classes and life in general.
4 - What 3 beauty products could you not live without?
Hands down that would be moisturizer, a light foundation and my trusty pencil eyeliner. I need the hydration, the coverage and the one trick for better looking eyes.
5 - What is your age?
20 in September.
6 - Three favourite online shopping websites.
I frequent Iherb, BeautyBay and Asos. Like, I'm pretty much always on those sites in my free time (or in lectures).
7 - What is the story behind your blog name?
The story here begins with something I like to identify as a very forgetful mind. I enjoy communicating and talking, but I forget so much. Hence, the name ofmymemories was meant to develop a habit for me to try something that gets me into routine. Obviously, it doesn't always relate to beauty blogs and such, but I definitely try to implement a specific memory into each post. It's a working progress but I think it's working. The posts of my Writings page will most likely always be of my memories though so watch that space if you're interested :)
8 - Top three favourite blogs/bloggers.
Oh this is actually a tough one, but if I had to I would pick: Essie Button, Zoella and HelloOctober for the beauty and lifestyle blog category.
9 - If you could travel anywhere in the world and money was no object, where would you go? Why?
Europe! Definitely Europe. A place that rich in culture and history would be an absolute dream to visit and sight see around.
10 - Favourite singers?
LANA DEL REY, Aerosmith, Stevie Wonder, Elvis Presley, Gin Wigmore, Gypsy King,....I think it'll be easier to say I like anyone that can sing.
11 - Do you have any pets?
Eerr, do several fish count? I don't look after them, they're my little brothers lol.
To answer the following questions:
1 - What do you love most about your blog?
2 - Any favourite pastimes/hobbies (apart from beauty hoarding and the like)?
3 - What is the one TV show or series that you could watch for the rest of your life?
4 - What is your dream career?
5 - Pick another country to live in, for the rest of your life.
6 - Do you play any musical instruments?
7 - Worst makeup or beauty product ever used and why?
8 - Who do you value most in the world?
9 - If the limit goes beyond the sky, what would you like to do next?
10 - Pick a film character you would want to be.
11 - What is your favourite season of the year and why?
11 Facts About Me
1 - I am a law/arts student, with about 4 more years to go before I get my (very costly) degree.
2 - I have a remarkable penchant to procrastinate
3 - The best moment in my entire life was when I was on a road trip with my family and the five of us were just talking about life and little things. It was a small moment but I've never felt closer to my most loved ones than when I was stuck in a ute with them en route to Sydney.
4 - Sometimes it scares me when I feel like I'm losing empathy with other people, although I am training for a very emotionally straining occupation so....I promise I'm not a psychopath.
5 - I actually really enjoy lawyer jokes, there are some pretty good ones out there. Throw 'em at meh.
6 - I go through many many phases for example with music and beauty product tastes. I guess that is attributed to my inability to decide on anything long term though.
7 - If I could have any super/mutant power in imagination it would be shape shifting. Mystique - one word - awesome.
8 - I've loved so much it hurt, but I have yet to find the one that shakes the very core of my jaded being; and I'm not going to wait around for them. I have my own life aspirations that I have yet to fulfill.
9 - Being the eldest, one of my many fabulous qualities is incredible bossiness. I love it.
10 - The greatest thing my siblings have taught me is the value of peace keeping and neutrality. What's fair is fair - there are always many sides to a coin.
11 - I'm finding it very difficult to give a very last and interesting fact about me. Which is weird because I love talking about myself (who doesn't). Ah that's it, my ego is ridiculously inflated, as my dear sister loves pointing out all the time.
It has been a pleasure answering these questions and I hope my nominees think so too. Again, thank you to Simona Moona for tagging me, you rock! xx
