This isn't really a fashion related post but since I don't have a "personal" section on my blog I'll just post it here. I got tagged by a blogger Gul-e-Zehra for the "11 things you didn't know about me" challenge. I'm happy to be part of the chain and am glad to answer her 11 questions. You'll get to know me a bit better!
1. Who/what is your biggest inspiration in life?
I think my biggest inspiration are the goals I've achieved in the past. They remind me every day to keep going and to try harder.
2. What inspired you to start blogging?
I've always wanted to share my thoughts and creations with people, which is pretty hard to do in person. Many people don't get you, or they just act like they're interested but don't really listen. So I figured that if I start a blog it's the perfect way to be in contact with all of you who are interested without bothering others who are not. A blog is an amazing way to express yourself and inspire others.
3. Your top 5 beauty picks?
Hmmm that depends on many things (:
4. If you could travel the whole world, which 3 destinations will you pick first and why?
Ok first I'd love to see New York. I really want to spend a couple of months in Manhattan. I hope I'll be able to go to an art university there for my last 2 years.
Second I'd pick India. I'd like to visit some small villages there and just spend some time with the locals - get to know their rituals and religion and their way of life in general, and my third choice would probably be Canada. But this is a really hard question, there are so many places I want to see and to pick just 3 is almost impossible (:
5. What is your current obsession?
Chocolate. My whole life. It's just horrible. I think I may be addicted to it.
6. If you are given an opportunity to make your own makeup product with your favorite brand what would it be and why? What brand will you choose?
I think I'd pick Chanel. I'd love to design an edgy red lipstick. I think black eyeliner and red lips is all it takes to look stunning.
7. What do you like most about blogging?
Seing that people like what I do. When I first started I liked it most that I could write anything, be anyone. Now I'm just myself and people love that. It's the best feeling in the world and I am so grateful to all of you who give me such great feedback and read my blog. You are amazing.
8. Who are your top 3 bloggers and YouTubers and why?
Number one is definitely Victoria's In The Frow. She is amazing and her blog is so real and warm. Regarding number 2 and 3 I don't have favorites. There are just so many great bloggers who inspire me!
9. Do you have a signature makeup look or fashion style? What is it?
I don't think I have a signature look, I just dress up or do my make up the way I'm feeling at that moment. I think it can't get any more personal than that.
10. What is your biggest achievement in life?
I don't think I can point to one thing here. I've grown so much and I think every day is a great achievement. I really try to make every minute count and squeeze the best out of every situation. Maybe I could say that my biggest achievement is being able to see the good things in life, accept critics and bad days. But I really think our "biggest achievements" aren't really things or events, but what we do with who we are and how we create ourselves.
11. What will be your advice & guiding points for the young bloggers?
I guess my advice is to never give up on your dreams keep going no matter how hard it gets. If you decide to run a blog, do it for yourself. Never for the attention or products. Love what you do and do what you love.
