So I was nominated for my first Blogger award! Yes, I am THAT person 😉
I was nominated by the beautiful Meera, who has become a blogger friend over the last couple months (how cool? I have blogger friends now!)
This was actually a competition run until December 25th, but I really wanted to do this as I think it would be a great way for people to know more about me! Here are the questions Meera gave me and the answers 🙂
1.What are you thinking right now?
How I should probably get stuff done but it’s New Years Day and we aren’t supposed to anything, right?
2.What inspired you to start blogging?
I wanted to express myself in some way and I was too chicken to start a YouTube channel so I thought I would start a blog. I have many things that I would love to talk about. My travelling, recipes, makeup etc
3.Where do you hope to be in 10 years?
I hope to be married at least! Not sure where in the world I will be, but I want to be happy!
4.What are three things you hope to achieve during your lifetime?
Travel and experience as much as I am able to.
To have at least 2 degrees
To have done makeup for a fashion show!
5.If your whole life was written in a book (including how and when you die), would you read it? & Why/Why not?
No- I am the person who loves to know what is coming next, to make sure I have some sort of control BUT I would not read it because I feel like I would know what will happen and get bored.
6.What is your favourite book of all time?
Spud by John de Ruit.
7.If you had unlimited money for one day, what would you do?
Buy all the makeup I have written down on my wishlist. Both high-end and drugstore.
I would then buy a HUGE amount of sanitary towels and tampons for the women who can’t afford it every month in South Africa. This is a huge problem in South Africa and if I were in the financial situation to help them, then that’s what I would do.
My last thing that I would do is to help this organisation called “Hopes Closet” that help sex workers who do it because they can’t support themselves or have been forced into it by pimps. This lady goes out and makes friends with these women who need help and when they trust her enough, she helps them get out of it, get them back to their home country, start over, get medical help etc. She has such a passion for it and I would love to help her.
8.What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?
I do a lot of embarrassing things. I am just that person I guess lol. My most embarrassing moment of 2017 must have been when I slipped down the stairs at a local shopping centre when I went to get food during college. I was with my friends and it was funny but I knew a lot of people there. The falling thing isn’t the embarrassing part, I do that like once a week. What is more embarrassing is that I skinned my knees so bad I could not bend them or go on my knees for almost a month. Yep, that’s how bad it was. Ever seen a 22 year old with skinned knees?
9.If you could live in a fictional universe (e.g. Middle earth/Harry Potter/Marvel/Star Wars), which one would it be?
I feel like if you don’t know this answer about me already, then are we even friends? Harry Potter, always Harry Potter.
10.What’s one thing you wish you could tell your teenage self ?
Spend more time with your mom. More time than you already did. Basically 24/7 because she won’t be around for a long time.
11.What are 2 of your proudest achievements?
- Moving to America
- Moving to Holland
- Standing up for myself
- Following my dreams
12.What are 3 things that made you happy today?
It must have been the fact that I was able to stay in my PJ’s the whole entire day and not feel bad about it. Not one bit!
