Isobel's Basket truly made my day!
So to begin, here are 11 random facts about me
One: I have a degree in Biomedical Science and want to go on to be a Dermatologist
Two: I love to travel. There is nothing quite like exploring new places, new sights, smells and food! I also think the best way to discover a new country is by rummaging through their local supermarket.
Three: I prefer Winter over Summer any day.
Four: I am obsessed with candles, I just how the mood can change in a room simply with a candle.
Five: I love to cook. I'm currently loving Veg Every Day and am constantly trying new recipes and new flavour combinations.
Six: The first thing I do when I get home is make a cup of tea. I could not live without tea.
Seven: I eventually want to move out of Australia to live in England. I've always felt a strong pull there and I love European culture
Eight: I've been to NASA and am pretty much a huge nerd. Brains and Beauty I say ;)
Nine: I've always had a huge fear of spiders, ever since a huge one crawled up my leg in the shower when I was five years old. Ever since spiders seem to flock to me. As well as mosquito's actually, they love me so much I've been bitten through jeans before. Not fun.
Ten: If I didn't go into the science/dermatology route, I was seriously considering interior design. I guess I just love being creative and creating unique spaces.
Eleven: I have an inherited little dog, who has on more than one occasion rubbed against my hand post blush swatching and ended up with rosy cheeks. I feel there's more than one beauty addict in the house....
And now on with questions from Isobel's Basket:
1. What made you want to start blogging?
I've always been a very creative person and loved that this could be an outlet for me. With a very heavy academic focus in my life, I loved the thought of doing something for me, that would enable me to share my passion for everything beauty related.
2. What is your favourite food?
This is a tough one! I absolutely love food in general, but I would probably have to go for Italian. There is nothing quite like home made wood fire pizza.... and red wine.
3. Do you have a favourite childhood memory and will you share it?
I have many fond childhood memories. One however, is when my older brother, who recently passed away, taught me how to tie my shoelaces. It meant the next day I won a shoe-lace tying competition in Kindergarten and I've never forgotten those moments.
4. What is your favourite film?
I have many favourite films and I've always had a special spot in my life for Princess Diaries - don't judge..
5. Where do you most what to travel and why?
I would love to explore more of Europe and eventually more there one day. I just love the diversity of culture and food and think it's just an exciting place to be.
6. What is your favourite book?
As cliché as it may be, I've always loved Pride and Prejudice. It's something to do with the language and the social graces which really intrigue me.
7.If you could only choose three make-up products to use for the rest of your life what would they be?
This is a hard question! I would probably go for Kevin Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer, Eye of Horus Mascara and Daniel Sandler Water Colour Blushes.
8. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Definitely not a morning person and I do tend to stay up a bit later than I really should..
9. What makes you happy?
I think the people you go through life with is what makes me truly happy. Surrounding myself with supportive, kind and loving friends and family.
10. What is your favourite hot beverage? (e.g. Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, etc.)
If you didn't' see above - I'm obsessed with Tea. Definitely Tea.
