So I decided to “steal this” if you will from the awesome Blogger that is Emilyxonline (Beauty and Lifestyle Blog) Please check her out, it is an amazing Blog! I decided to steal it from her, because I realise it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. These are some great questions!
Answer the 11 questions that your nominator has asked you.
- Nominate 11 other bloggers (with under 200 followers)
- Ask your nominees 11 questions.
- Let them know you nominated them!
Instead of tagging 11 people, anyone who wants to do this post. feel free too! Make sure to tag me in them so I can read your answers and get to know more about you!!
My questions for all of you:
1. What is one thing you love about yourself?
This has honestly been the hardest question to answer. I’ve been feeling very lost recently and not very respected in a lot of different areas of my life. So it’s hard to think there is anything lovable there. The one thing I do love about myself is that no matter what I’m going through, I do not take my stuff out on those who have done me no wrong.
2. If you had the chance to meet your favorite youtuber, who would it be and why?
I never have but I would love too! Their “career” isn’t really YouTubing, but their YouTube channel is now apart of their career. I suggest that if you’ve watched RuPaul’s Drag Race, or are aware of the Drag scene. Please check out “Bro’Laska“…It’s such a great and funny channel! This link is for their play list. You will not be disappointed! They have made me laugh and gotten me through some really depressing nights. If I’m in a bad way, I will play their videos before I fall asleep. Unfortunately, there last few videos have been extremely short.
3. Have you ever traveled out of your country? If so, where did you go?
I have, I live in Australia. I’ve travelled too two places, one was the United States and the other was the UK. I loved both places, they were so gorgeous and I travelled to the US and then UK straight after and the difference in the greenery, was shocking! I couldn’t get over it! Literally,lol.
4. One quote you will always stand by?
I will always stand by the Quote:
It was written by the one and only William Shakespeare, but it is also on my Great Grandfathers head stone. I feel like we have lost this a lot, and it is probably the hardest thing to do in this world. Especially in the world we live in, with all the photo shop and filters and this almost “need” to have the best of everything, even if we don’t really want it. I think we need hold to this quote more than ever. In a world where people don’t want to listen to other sides and just want to bully, it can be tiring to fight for ourselves, but we need to more than ever!
5. Favorite childhood memory?
This is an interesting question, because my answer is a weird one. Whenever my brother and I would both get grounded at the same time, especially if it was an all-nighter one. We would sit in our bedroom door frames with our pillow and blankets and just talk to each other. We were probably being punished because we were doing something to each other, but we would just sit, talk and joke. I can’t even tell you what we even talked about, or why we were grounded, but they were honestly my favourite times.
6. Advice you would give your teenage daughter (if you ever have one)?
The best advice that would probably give her is that, she needs to decide for herself what is right and what is wrong, ultimately she is the one that HAS to live with that decision. If she knows that something is wrong and she goes through with it anyways. I will be there, but she has to be willing to follow through with the consequences of her actions. That whatever her decision, she needs to be willing to take responsibility for that choice. For example, if she walks pass someone being bullied, she needs to really ask herself “Why”…I think that I’m pretty harsh sometimes,lol
7. Are you more of an eyeshadow or lipstick lover?
Definitely a lipstick lover. I am so low maintenance and trying to do all that stuff to your eye, it’s a lot of work,lol…I also do love though how lipstick just seems to give me that feeling of “I am finally ready, this is it”. “This is me for the whole day/evening/party.” I tend to put lipstick on last. I tend to just put an eye liner on. Sometimes I will put eye-shadow on, but it is really rare and usually I have practised with the colour (or colours) earlier.
8. Favorite high-end foundation (if you have one) and favorite drugstore foundation?
I don’t really have one to be honest.
9. How often do you wash your makeup brushes/sponges?
As mentioned before I am really low maintenance when it comes to make-up. So I don’t really clean that that often, because I don’t really use them that much. Most of the things I use, don’t really need to use makeup brushes and sponges. If I ever have to use that kind of makeup, I’ve probably borrowed it from my brother…He’s a Drag Queen =D lol Far more make up maintenance than me,lol
10. Favorite thing to do on the weekend?
I love to sit down, with a cup of tea/coffee, play “The Sims” and then watch “Safari Live“. Oh I love it! I would literally do it every single day if I could =D Please feel free to join us…I’ll be there! If the weather is nice, I will go for a walk with my Dog and usually walk by the shop, buy a nice lunch, just before the drive.
11. What do you like about my blog?
I like how your Blog is relatable, even though I am low maintenance when it comes to make up, I don’t feel like it’s too extreme, that I just don’t get it. It’s also given me a few handy tips as well, so I don’t need to take so long,lol. I really enjoyed your “Get UNready with me” post, as I feel like I have no idea what I should be doing at night, but should be doing something! I also didn’t know that you lived in Australia at that point,lol

Over the weekend I got to (finally) watch the amazing production of BBC’s Midsummer Night Dreams and I am so glad that I got to watch it.
I just wanted to start off by saying that I am fan of the Mister William Shakespeare. In my Year 12 English class I was pretty much the only one who got it and understood, which was funny considering my dyslexia. I just find the language beautiful to read.
I was really excited to watch this particular production since it had so many actors in that I completely respect and have watched for many years. I was not disappointed by the acting. As I have always felt William Shakespeare flows a lot more when you read it, it always comes a across little disjointed when it’s said out loud. I don’t know if that is just me though.
I have to be honest, the modern twist on it was a little off putting to begin with, but you quickly get over it. William Shakespeare was written at a different time, so to see tablets being used to show pictures and quotes, was honestly, felt really weird.
The acting was superb though! The actors fit their roles to a capital T. Whoever did the casting for this should be very proud of themselves. We were laughing at the right spots, waiting the characters to win and lose at the right spots. The editing felt very fluid as well, never once did I feel like it was disjointed.
A definite 4.5 out 6 books for me. It was just the modern twist at the beginning that put me off. You get over it, but it does seem to ruin the beginning a little bit.
So I read this post at: https://vrushali21.wordpress.com/2016/01/21/tmi-tag/comment-page-1/#comment-1109 Shared by the very lovely Vrushali21 and I thought “why not” I’m not really sure what and how much you all know, so here’s some more about me =P
What are you wearing?
At the moment I’m wearing my works official uniform. We only have to wear the uniform at the busy times of the year.
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever had a terrible break up?
All of my break ups have been fine, a lot of the times we’ve broken up because it was the “right” thing to do. However, the way they all treated me a couple of weeks later. That was the terrible part, I actually said to my last ex it felt like all of my ex’s had all just secretly hated me, that’s how horrible they were. I still can’t understand it.
How tall are you?
How much do you weigh?
You should never ask someone that! My weight honestly has been going up and down a bit, especially when I hurt my leg and basically was doing nothing but sitting for a month.
Nope, I would really like one though. I know though I would get bored though and getting the tattoo off would be costly and apparently the lasers used to get them off are really painful.
One on each ear.
It’s funny, I like putting couples together from different television shows or from the same show but different characters. For example, Legolas and Arwen, River Song and Loki. I would have to say though at this moment I love Mary and Francis from the television show “Reign”.
As mentioned above my favourite is probably Reign, but the other that I just love is Homicide Hunter, it has to be one of my favourites of all time.
I’m one of those annoying people that can like everything. Just to name a few I like Enya, Nightwish, Marylin Manson, Jennifer Lopez, anything Celtic. I like what I like.

1 Quote You Live By
1. “To Thine Own Self Be True” William Shakespeare…Polonius “Hamlet”
As you can see by the title tomorrow night is World Book Night. It is held on the 23rd of April and is there to celebrate William Shakespeare birth and death.
The reason I am posting about it now is press the link and you can see where the places where they are holding events tomorrow night…World Book Night – Events…You can also check out the numerous Facebook pages, by just typing in “World Book Night” into the Facebook search bar.
I am so completely envious as this event seems to be only held in the UK and the USA, I would love to have something like this down under!
Being a lover of the books and all of the reading that I do, a lot of the time while reading I will have form of liquid in a cup next to me. Sometimes, honestly, I forget to finish off the drink that I have.
Any-ways I found this list of amazing cups and mugs with literary quotes and funny book and reading sayings. I want them all…I am not kidding! I especially love the “William Shakespeare insults cups”. I think that not only are these cups awesome but they would make for an amazing Christmas gift! I’ve got my eye on a few for people I know.
This week has definitely been feeling like it has a magical type feeling behind it. What if i was to tell some truths behind some of the most famous Disney fairy-tales?
Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast is probably one of my most favourite Disney movies and Belle is my favourite Disney princess.
The “real life” is pretty accurate expect for a couple of little differences that don’t really make too much of a shocking difference. Belle’s father is actually extremely rich but is in extreme debt. The other major difference is that Belle has two stepsisters (not so much of a shocker in a fairytale)…The Beast allows Belle to go home as long as it is only for a week. Belle’s step-sisters try to keep Belle at home for longer than that in the hopes that the Beast will be so mad at her he will eat her alive!
The Lion King
It may not seem like such a stretch when you really think about it. “The Lion King” is apparently loosely based on the Williams Shakespeare play “Hamlet”. (The jealous brother wants to kill the King, comes up with a scrupulous plan and manages to unleash the plan, and the son wants revenge…Yeah…Think about it…).
This one you will not see coming!
Pinocchio runs away as soon as he can walk, Gepetto is arrested after police believe that he is abusing Pinocchio and Pinocchio kills a talking cricket! Gepetto is eventually released and insists that Pinocchio goes to school. Pinocchio sells his texts books to attend the Great Marionette Theatre, encounters a fox and cat who to try to hang him and steal from him. Pinocchio does eventaully end up shaping up and becoming a real boy though.
