SIMPLE OUTFIT AND MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD Q&A…

Blogger Thank God it’s Friday! I’m so ready for this weekend. This week brought its own stress and I’m ready to shake it off.

In the name of flash back Friday, I want to share one of the outfits I wore on my holiday in Edinburgh. Sometimes all you need is a comfortable, but effective style to take you through the day/night. -And what a simple one than an all black outfit with a hint of colour. I love the fluffy texture of the top a lot. It feels amazing on!

Mystery Blogger Award 

Sharing that blogger love and making a small room for bloggers to know a little about each other, my blogging sister Tania who blogs at Inspire My Fancy nominated moi for the above award. The rule is to share three facts about yourself and answer a few questions from the nominator. So here we go;

Three Facts about Me:

  1. For those of you who are new to this blog, I’m a single mother of a boy. He’s eight years old.
  2. As a kid, I wanted to be a broadcaster. Growing up and seeing the kind of person I am, I don’t think I can do that. Having said that, I didn’t want to regret not at least trying so I studied Broadcasting Media Technology in University. It was a great experience. While I’m not broadcasting on TV/radio, I’m doing that through my blog. Ha!!
  3. I love to dance. If a music strikes a cord in me, you bet I’m gonna move like a puppet being controlled by its puppeteer. Lol!!

Tania’s Questions to Me:

  • What made you start a blog?  = I started my blog as part of my Broadcasting Media Technology course in Uni. As part of our final year projects, we were to build an online portfolio to put ourselves in the real world for job prospects. So I created this blog.
  • What do you enjoy most about blogging? = Getting to meet people and making friends.
  • Name 3 blogs you followed before you started blogging? = None, but I did read some blogs.
  • Was there a particular blog that made you want to give blogging a chance? = Nope!
  • How do you feel you have changed since you first started blogging? = Blogging has helped me become a bit more confident and self aware. I’ve become more of a shopaholic too, but recovering from it (covers face!).

All black outfit EdinburghThe last rule of the award is to nominate 10 – 20 people, but I’m gonna break the rule and nominate everyone that reads/comments on this post. There’re way too many bloggers I admire and its unfair to select some and leave some out. So please feel free!

Happy Weekend Beauties!

Much Love!

    I enjoyed reading this and learning more about you. Yes you are kind of broadcasting, I first went to school for film but realized even as I was completing my degree that the life would be too intense and crazy too many very long days. But doing graphics now in publishing so not completely different.

  18. May 8, 2018 / 9:16 am

    I don’t have many black clothing but these look good on you!

  19. May 8, 2018 / 1:30 pm

    I’m the same way when it comes to dancing, if I hear music I like I’ll start dancing right away, even if I’m in a store, it’s like I can’t stop myself, lol. I’ve always wanted to take some dance classes. I’m always looking for a dance school to sign in, but most of them are for kids, so I think they don’t accept adults. I wish there were more options available for adults in general….I’m not into clubbing, never been into night life but I’d like to find some fun activities and I place where I can just dance, you know. Aerobics & fitness program doesn’t work for me, I have scoliosis so I need to be careful. I once signed for an aerobic class and I fainted- I’m never going there again.

    It was great reading this! I didn’t know that you studied broadcasting and wanted to work as a broadcaster. That’s really interesting. It was fun learning how you started your blog as a Uni project. I started my blog when I saw an article about a Croatian vintage blogger in a magazine. I liked her style and I thought it will be cool to have a page like that. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into! Blogging is so time-consuming…but I have no regrets. I’ve met so many inspiring ladies, yourself included, in this blogging community. That’s definitely the best part of blogging for me.

    • May 8, 2018 / 6:26 pm

      Oh guess I’m not the only one then. I couldn’t agree more with you on the dance classes. It is the same over here too. I try to do zumba classes now and then at the gym, but that’s about it. Oh wow sorry to hear that. Hope you can find something that works for you.
      Yeah I so wanted. Ha!! Good know to know how you started your blog. It is time consuming indeed, but yeah I’ve no regrets too. Yes to meeting lots of inspiring ladies.
      Thanks ever so much Ivana. You’re an inspiration too and so talented. 🙂

    I’m new to this blog, and wow I would not have guessed that you were a mother to a little boy, you genuinely look way too young for that haha. I have also become a bigger shopaholic since blogging, I found myself placing an order for another three outfits yesterday lol.

    Have a great week!

    • May 8, 2018 / 6:14 pm

      Ha!! Well thanks much Amy. I’ll take that compliment. Good to hear that I’m not the only one on the shopaholic boat. Lol!! I’ve been good of late. I haven’t bought anything on a while. Trying to shop from my closet a lot because there’re a lot of pieces I haven’t worn yet.
      Thanks ever so much.
      Have a great week too.
