little old me

Saw this tag over at Click Your Heels and thought the questions she came up with were good enough to steal;)

1. What diary are you using in 2012?
I am a compulsive note-taker, and so hardly leave the house without my diary. This year I picked up a slim dark brown week to a page diary from Typo for a measly $5 AUD.

2. Have you travelled overseas before? Where?
I was lucky enough to be taken along on my parents' travels over the years, so I've been to Scotland, England, France, Bali and Thailand. I'd love to go to France again, and I'm heading to Thailand in a few weeks!

3. What is your family heritage?
Both of my parents are Scottish, but my siblings and I were all born here in Australia.

4. What is your favourite place to eat out?
I have a few favourite restaurants I like to eat at, Chris and I eat at Indian restaurants quite a bit as it is my favourite cuisine. We also like Mozzkito in Clifton Hill (Melbourne) for their huge servings and consistently tasty meals.

5. What handbag are you currently using?
I've been using a large grey tote from Sportsgirl, but since I spilt my lemon lime and bitters slurpee in it I've moved on to a small black cross body bag. I have a new piece from Foley & Corinna on the way, and to say I'm excited is an understatement! 

6. What is your favourite alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink?
Apple Cider, and soda water.

7. What type of exercise or hobby do you do?
Not much, if anything I walk but am not one for team sports or early morning gym sessions.

8. What is you favourite lipstick or lip gloss?
MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is my all time favourite lipstick, I was so sad when it was discontinued.

9. What is the most daring thing you have ever done?
I am terrified of pretty much everything- flying, boats, fire, heights, crowds etc. The two most daring things I've ever done would be climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower, and snorkelling in the middle of the ocean last time we were in Thailand.

Madame Bovary, the blogs namesake

10. How long have you been a blogger? What made you start?
I began blogging in November 2010, because I wasn't writing enough in my literature course (ha!) and wanted to delve into the beauty world I was peering into via everyone elses blogs. Best decision ever.

11. Are you a MAC or a PC person?
 PC, Chris bought me an Asus laptop for uni (read:blog) at Christmas and I'm in love with it!


I'd love to hear more about YOU! So feel free to do this tag or leave some responses to the questions below, I'd love to get to know my beautiful readers!

    1. You know, Africa is a holiday destination I've not really thought about. Would be so amazing. I really like the look of your Speedy, I can't do short handle bags but want something similar as a classic in my collection. PC all the way :D xx

  6. 1. I have to use Google Calendar for work, so I also put my other commitments in there too.
    2. I've been to Malaysia, NZ and Samoa. Absolutely dying to visit Japan and Russia, as well as the USA purely for shopping.
    3. My dad is Samoan and my mum is Norwegian/Irish. Nobody ever believes that I'm Samoan :P
    4. Anywhere that serves Japanese curry! Or any sort of sushi train type place.
    5. A gorgeous black leather black Loungefly bag with a gold, pink and green sugar skull on it.
    6. Fruit Tingle cocktails and water. Or coffee.
    7. Nothing, but I should really start walking >__>
    8. Right now it's a tie between MAC Girl About Town for a bright hot pink and MAC Syrup for a light purply pink.
    9. Ummm idk....maybe jumping off the jetty into the ocean? I do public speaking in front of lecture theatres of 400 kids, some might say that's daring!
    10. Umm maybe November 2009? I never kept track of my blogaversary so I've missed it every sing time -__-

    1. I had no idea you were of Samoan descent! I can see the Norwegian and Irish though ;P I'd go to the USA purely for shopping too, amazzzing. I've not really eaten Japanese food, shame hey. OMG Fruit Tingles are the best! I had them at my birthday, yummo. I love Girl About Town on you, so pretty. xxx

  7. 1. I have a pink diary with two pigs on... yes its laughable :D My fiancé gave it to me so I guess that will excuse it ;)
    2. I´ve been to a lot of places. Sweden and Norway but that is not far away considering that I live in Finland :) Then Ive been to Hungary, Madeira, Mallorca and Tenerife :)
    3. Wow... I have heard that some family far back in the line on my dads side were Walloons so I guess I have some of that in me still oh and I guess I have some Swedish in me since I am a Swedish speaking Finn :) Ofcourse I have Finnish in me too :)
    4. I will sound boring now but I don´t like eating out that much. I used to like it but now a days I prefer home made food. IF we go out to eat my favorite places, hands down, are Amarillo (a mexican restaurant) and Tian Long (a chinese restaurant)
    5. I don´t use a specific handbag I just pick a handbag for the occation. The one Ive used the most is a wine red shoulder bag from H&M :) Fancy eh ;)
    6. Hmm let me think... non alcoholic have to be water (im booring :P) and alcoholic have to be either Crowmoore cider or a really sour drink :) Anything sour is good for me :)
    7. I walk a lot :)
    8. Favorite lipstick right now is nr 77 by Lumene. Its called At the Spring and its part of their Wild Rose Lipstick range :)
    9. Wow... um I don´t know. Im a coward to be honest :D
    10. I have been a blogger on and off for many years. Then my fiancé told me that since I have the collection of makeup that I have I should do start a makeup blog so that I could share everything with people that love makeup :) So I began blogging in 2009 or 2010 with my beauty blog :) It was first on Wordpress but then I moved to blogger/blogspot :)
    11. PC :) I have a Toshiba laptop and I adore it :) its my baby :P I do like the MAC ones but they are so darn expensive that I am more than happy choosing a cheaper alternative that is just as good :)

    Take care sweetie
    hugs

    1. I'm sure your piggy diary is adorable!!It's good that you like water, I have been so slack since uni holidays have started my skin is so thirsty all the time. Agree with you on the last point, I'd rather have a good quality cheaper laptop so I can spend more money on cosmetics ;P xxx
