Tagged with more questions

Thanks again for your wonderful comments. They make me feel so happy!

I have more tagged questions. I will try and do at least two in this post :)

This first lot if is from lovely Cassie. She is so sweet and has such a lovely blog full of gorgeous images. I adore her Tumblr Tuesdays.

1. What book(s) are you currently reading right now?

Alright I'm reading a few YA books because I love them. One is The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan, Withering Tights by Louise Rennison and I'm starting The Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin.

2. What is your all time favourite film and why?

Oh this is a hard one as I don't think I have one. There are a lot of movies that are my favourites but I guess I would choose Blood Diamond. I thought about this movie a lot when I first saw it. The whole blood diamond trade (We made sure my rings have certification to say they are not blood diamonds), the father who loves his son no matter what, the wonderful Leonardo Dicaprio (he's amazing in this movie). It also made me realise how blessed I am to live here.

3. Which is your favourite room in your house and what makes it special?

I guess at the moment it's the lounge room. It's where I'm usually during the day. I sit on the lounge and blog, read, eat, create. Plus Jason's computer is here too so it's where we spend most of our time together.

4. Tell us about a childhood holiday you loved.

I think my second trip to the Philippines is quite memorable. My first trip I turned one in the Philippines. The second time round I was seven. I think I enjoyed it because I spent time with my cousins, most of my grandparents were all still alive and I just remember having such a wonderful trip. I even enjoyed the plane trip.

With a few of my cousins. I have a lot more but these are the ones closer to my age.

5. What is the one place that you really want to visit that you haven't been to before

Again there are many places I have been but I would have to say Spain. It's been a country I have wanted to visit for years. For awhile at university I was thinking of doing an exchange there. I really looked into it too. I know that I will absolutely love it when I will one day visit.

6. What is your go-to favourite comfort food

I would say biscuits. Especially if they are chewy with lots of chocolate chips :) Or Tim Tams.

7. What is something fun and inspiring you have seen online lately and would like to share with us all?

There is so much lovely inspiration online. I have recently discovered this lovely tumblr archive, which I found via Anastasia's twitter. Absolutely lovely and dreamy.
Here's an example....

A lot of prettiness here.

Ok I was going to do my other questions but I might do that in my next post. It will be too much to handle for you lovely readers :)

Have a good rest of week full of beauty and inspiration.

P.S. My new site is up but I haven't done much with it yet. My blog will be changing very soon.

Blood Diamond is indeed a great film. I loved it when I first say it and it really made me to think too, I watched it twice already. Great choice.

I hope you can go to Spain some fine day, and I'll meet you there *ah ah* Spain is my only neighbor :D

Can wait to get your letter!!! And thank you for the comment and appreciation about my new section. next Friday most likely a new interview will come out, with a new person.

Much <3
