My answer to the question given by Ms. Ann Mowet:

1. What inspired you to blog?
I was inspired by other fabulous plus size bloggers that displayed exactly how I feel about fashion, this made me create my own blog., I want to inspire others too.

2. What's your favorite Holiday, and why?
Christmas. Since that's also my aunts birthday, we always celebrate with the whole family, it's so warm and fun. Besides that, it's also the day we remember our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ coming to this earth.

3. What is your favorite song?
That's hard, there are so many songs I love. I think I'd have to go with Joe - Good Girls. Brings back memories.

4. What's the most outrageous thing you have ever done?
I have absolutely no idea. I guess I'm kind of boring...

5. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would love to go to Egypt first, I've always been fascinated by ancient Egypt, pyramids, mummies and I watch every single documentary on the subject. After that, New York!! :)

6. Is there a word of saying you can't stand, if so, what is it?
No there's not.

7. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?
I would love to say I'd buy a house first, but the first thing that comes to mind is the 3.1 Philip Lim Pashli Satchel, and my mile long "Save list" from Asos, lol. Then, a house :)

8. What is your worst fear?
Losing all my loved ones (as I get older).

9. What is your favorite candy?
That would be chocolates, preferably dark chocolates with filling.

10. What's your favorite season and why?
Most fashionista's love Fall, but I love Summer the most! The sun in my face and hot weather make me so happy!

11. What is your favorite childhood memory?
Playing and staying over at my grandparents. My grandfather literally had his camcorder glued to his hand. He always used to film us while we were singing songs, dancing or acting crazy. I enjoy watching these video's.

  3. We soooo have #2&8 of your things about you in common!

  4. Thanks SO much for the nomination! Yay me! I'm so excited:) And as far as the crime channel goes, I LOVE IT! So I can really relate with you. I spend my Friday nights on the Investigation Discovery channel watching stuff like "On the case with Paula Zahn", "Who on earth did I marry", "women who kill", "Behind Mansion walls". When I start I can't stop. The fun thing for me is how killers always get caught!
