A couple of days ago I got a virtual award from the sweet girls of andlittlethings. This virtual award, the Liebster award, is an award amongst bloggers that is given to a new blogger that deserves some attention. There are always 11 questions you have to answer before passing along the award. Want to get to know me a bit better? Read on!
Tine & Lore from andlittlethings asked me eleven questions to get to know me a bit better. I’ll answer them as honest as possible. Want to know something else about me? Just ask in the comments, I love to hear from you! I’m also quite curious about your responses on these questions, so go ahead and introduce yourself.
What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?
To be honest, I am not really a fan of New Year’s Eve. I always feel weird counting down the seconds to the new year… But one thing is for sure, I have to be with my boyfriend to give him a big kiss at 00.00. So we’ll celebrate with some friends in Mechelen and will go dance afterwards on the central square.
Do you have a favorite brand or store?
Ah, such a difficult question to answer, I have so many brands I love. But if I would have to choose I’d say the good old H&M. Affordable, good quality and they have EV-ER-Y-THING. If I was rich I would spend all my money in the All Saints store and on clothing of Essentiel/Soft Grey.
What does your daily beauty routine look like?
My daily routine is quite basic – I put on BB-cream, some blush, an eyeliner and mascara (al-ways mascara). I straighten my hair sometimes and then I’ll put it back in place a bit in the morning. I rarely shower before going to work, I love to do it after work to relax.
Which bloggers do you admire?
I am absolutely crazy about MadebyF. I can’t even explain how good I think she is but her pictures are just amazing, I wish I could take my pictures like that! She also seems like such a sweet girl and her blog really shows her personality. Next to this talented girl I think Dogsanddresses has been my favorite blog since I started following bloggers, which has been quite a while now. Her outfits are always, and I literally mean always, on point.
What’s your biggest dream?
I don’t have one ultimate goal in life, except the cliché get married, have children, be happy. If I would look at my personal biggest dream I think it would be starting up a (small) business that’s focused on fashion. For now I am realizing my biggest dream – blogging and writing about what I love. I always thought I wouldn’t find the time, but I noticed I like it so much that the time comes naturally.
What do you find most fun in the blogosphere?
The fact that all bloggers – big or small – are super nice to each other. People really appreciate one another in the blogosphere and I thought that wouldn’t be the case. We’re all just doing a hobby that we love, there’s no need for competition, but compliments? Nobody ever got too many compliments!
What does a regular day look like?
Well,… Quite boring. I get up at 7, probably still snuggle a bit with my boyfriend and then I take a train to Antwerp to go to work, I work in the city centre of Antwerp (next to the Meir) and I love it there. I’ll probably finish around 5.30 and when I get home I’ll make dinner, put on some music and cuddle with my boyfriend again ;-). In the evening we’ll probably watch some TV. This doesn’t sound all to exciting but this is two evenings a week and I really love to just come home and relax. During the weekends and also some days in the week I often meet up with my girlfriends, my parents or my colleagues so I do not have a real ‘regular day’ schema.
What’s your favorite clothing style?
I often like to switch in between styles. I know I’m quite famous for wearing dresses, skirts, heels and glitter so I would say I dress quite feminine. But I also like to go a bit rock ‘n roll chic sometimes or even a casual outfit will tempt me on monday morning! A style that I love but just doesn’t suit me is sporty chic. Me on sporting shoes just looks funny, nobody would want to see that.
What does every blogger really need?
A good photographer haha. My boyfriend takes most of my pictures and even though he does really well in shooting the photos he just doesn’t really like it. So every time I have to bring on the puppy eyes if I want him to go outside and shoot some outfits with me.
What are your resolutions for the new year?
I don’t really make resolutions for the new year but if I would make one it would probably be to exercise more/lose weight. I think that’s a typical girl thing and I don’t want to stress about it too much but sitting at a desk for 8 hours straight isn’t really good for your health or your weight.
