I came across these ‘Let’s Get Personal’ questions on Pink Peonies, one of my favourite local blogs, and thought it would be a good idea to do so that you can all get to know me better.
Do you have any pets?
Technically, I have a cat named Minky back in Johannesburg, but she has disowned me since I moved to Cape Town and won’t let me cuddle her whenever I go visit
I would say I’m more of a cat person than a dog person because cats are independent and they don’t need attention 24/7.
Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
An Origin cappuccino, my phone and a stack of magazines.
What’s the weather like right now?
The sun is shining, but it’s freezing cold! Cape Town winters are not very pleasant, we usually have rain and wind too.
Do you drive?
Yes, although I wish I drove my friend’s Audi R8 instead 😉
What time did you wake up this morning?
I set my alarm for 7am on weekdays, but I usually stumble out of bed at 7:30 and rush to get ready for work.
When was the last time you showered?
I’m a total germ phobe, so last night. Hand sanitizer is one of my best friends 😛
What was the last movie you saw?
Edge of Tomorrow at the cinema with my boyfriend. I’m not a Tom Cruise fan, but Emily Blunt was awesome in it.
What does your last text message say?
A reduced offer for manis and pedis at a salon I’ve been to.
What’s your ringtone?
My phone is usually on silent or vibrate.
Have you ever been to a different country?
Yes, I love travelling! My favourite destinations so far are Bali and Paris, and my heart is set on going to New York one day.
Do you like sushi?
Yes, yummy! Especially Willoughbys in the Waterfront. I could eat salmon sashimi every single day.
Where do you buy your groceries?
Mainly good ol’ Woolworths.
Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Haha I am an insomniac and yes I’ve tried everything.
How many siblings do you have?
2, a younger sister and brother. We are all completely different though.
Do you have a desktop computer, laptop or an iPad / Tablet?
I have an Apple computer at work and an iPad mini in my handbag.
How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
Do you wear contacts or glasses?
No, I am fortunate enough to have great vision. Thanks Mom!
Do you colour your hair?
I highlight my hair every couple of months. My hair is much healthier now that I stopped highlighting it often.
Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Write a beauty feature for a magazine and publish this blog post.
When was the last time you cried?
I can’t really remember, I’m not really a crier.
What is your perfect pizza topping?
Bacon, feta and avocado *drools*
Which do you prefer – hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
A burger pattie without the bun, but with cheese, bacon, avo and mushrooms on top. Mmmm…
Have you ever had an all-nighter?
Oh yes, back in the day when I was a party animal!
I used to also pull all-nighters to finish studying the night before exams (nerd alert).
What is your eye colour?
Green, but sometimes they look more blue-green and other times they look more yellow-green.
Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
I haven’t had either in ages, so probably not.
What do you order at Starbucks?
Ahhh I wish we had Starbucks here in SA! I adore their Caramel Macchiatos.
What’s one thing in your closet that you cannot live without?
That’s a tricky one, but probably my Micheal Kors handbag or Zara leather jacket.
What’s one thing that most people probably wouldn’t know about you?
I love horror movies and if I didn’t enjoy writing so much, I would’ve become a criminal psychologist. The human mind fascinates me, especially when it comes to criminals.
Name one thing that you want to do before you die.
Travel the world and experience as many new things as I can. Oh, and scream my lungs out on some of the world’s best rollercoasters!
What’s one food that you cannot live without?
What quote / phrase do you live your life by?
I would like to start living by the quote: ‘Fate loves the fearless’. My wise boyfriend always tells me that 😉
What’s your number one most listened to song right now?
I love rap and hip hop, some of my favourite artists are Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Eminem. Don’t tell anyone, but I do also secretly sing along to Taylor Swift in the shower 😛
What kind of style would you define yourself as having?
I wouldn’t say I fit into one specific style group, but I do like to mix classic staples with feminine pieces.
What is your favourite number?
13 *evil laugh*
Name two hobbies.
Blogging and shopping (yes it counts when you spend every weekend at a shopping centre).
Name two pet peeves.
Two-faced people and mess.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Trying to take a great selfie in public, but usually failing miserably. Or catching up on the latest gossip with my girlfriends.
The Fashion Fox
P.S. Feel free to answer these questions and tag me in your post, I would love to find out more about my fellow foxes.
