questions are never indiscreet. answers sometimes are.

I was recently tagged to do the 11 Questions Q&A, by Elisabeth at the wonderful Dragonfly Blog! So, without further ado - here goes!

1. Why did you start blogging and what was your biggest motivation?
Last summer, I was frustrated. I had graduated from University and still hadn't found a job in my field. My dream of being a successful, published, and paid writer seemed to get further away with each passing day. As a way to channel my frustrations, I began blogging. I wanted to find a way to focus on the things that made me happy; I wanted to write for an audience. Since then, this blog has become so much more than I ever hoped for. It is something I am very proud of.

2. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
This completely depends on the day! On a typical day getting ready for work, I spend 30 minutes or getting ready. I don't tend to waste a lot of time! If I am getting ready to see someone, or go out? Anywhere from one to two hours. I notoriously take ages to get ready!

3. Do you have any place you love to shop?
I have an addiction to Forever 21. Easily my favourite clothing store. Other than that, I love H&M and Zara. For shoes, I shop at Town Shoes a lot. When it comes to makeup, I am all about Sephora!

4. Which clothing item is your favourite?
I have this beautiful dress from Armani Exchange that I am obsessed with. It's burgundy, has a plunging neckline, and a fuller skirt. When in doubt, I go with this dress!

5. Neon or Pastel?
I am loving both of these trends at the moment! There is something to be said for a pop of neon! However, I am definitely a pastel girl! I love the soft, femininity of pastels. They are demure and elegant.

6. What is your favourite movie and series?
2Ge+her! Both the movie and the TV series are my favourite! 2Ge+her was a spoof boyband created for MTV. As a lover of boybands, this was right up my alley, despite the spoof part! They have been a huge part of my life since their creation. The reunion on the horizon is an amazing and exciting thing!

7. Do you have an addiction?
Music is my addiction. It has shaped who I am in such a huge way. I've spent an awful lot of my money on CDs, concert tickets, and band t-shirts over the years. Music is a big part of who I am.

8. What’s the number one thing on your wishlist?
In terms of material things, there isn't really anything on my wishlist at the moment. Sure, there are things I would like, but nothing I can't do without. In general, the only thing I really want at the moment is a good job!

9. What do you do for a living?
I currently work in the glamorous world of fast food. I am persistent in going after what I want, however. I will become a successful writer.

10. How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Soft, classic, and feminine.

11. What are your favorite trends and colors upcoming season?
I am so into the mint colour trend and the floral print trend! Both are very exciting!

I am tagging anyone who wants to answer the 11 Questions!
