8 questions - Get to know me

I've been tagged in a post by the lovely Romance is Boring (her blog is definitely one of my all time favourites)- if you haven't checked out her blog yet, then I'm now telling you to! You won't regret it-promise.

1. Why did you start blogging?

 It all started when I was browsing the Internet last December, and I ran across a blog called Coco's Tea Party. I was so fascinated by the combination of fashion news and blogging, that I began to do some more research on the subject. And that is how I got inspired by dozens and dozens of blogs, and subsequently decided to start one myself- with the key point being that I would have to stand out from the  massive crowd that is called fashion blogging.

2. Do you prefer Spring/Summer or Autumn/Winter?

Definitely Spring/Summer. I love the moment when you see new green leaves coming through. Furthermore, I love hot summer days which then turn into cool, refreshing evenings which are spent outside a pub with some of my best friends and maybe one (or two!) alcoholic beverages.   

3. What do you notice first: Smokey eye make-up or bright lips?

Smokey eyes. I notice eyes before lips anyway. As they say: 'eyes are the mirror of the soul'. You can tell what kind of person someone is through the message they convey with their eyes. And finally, I am not really into bright lips kind of person. Lipstick makes your lips go all dry, and makes my mouth look horribly Julia Roberts-ish (read: big!). Not a good look, if I say so myself!

        4. Who are your style icons?
Oh dear..where to start?! I have so many, but the person who springs to mind first is (surprise surprise) Alexa Chung. I love her Britishness, her personal style and her overall attitude (her sense of humour is pretty amazing). Secondly, I love Nicole Richie's Bohemian chic look; I have copied so many of her looks this year.

5.  If you had to leave the house with only one item of make-up what would it be?
MASCARA. No doubt about it. It makes you look awake, and distracts from all other flaws that you might have (read: greasy hair, etc.). As long as your eyes stand out, you don't have anything to worry about!

6. Describe your personality in three words
Curious, outgoing, sarcastic (humour wise that is).

7. Which era do you think influenced fashion the most?
I don't think you can pinpoint one particular era. It's been said before; fashion keeps repeating itself (for example: shoulder pads made a massive comeback last year).

8. What beauty product do you always repurchase?  

Loreal mascara, Nivea Facial wipes, Red nail polish from Nailinc. Amen.  

Now, I tag:
