Bonjour mes amies! In honor of 200 followers, I decided to do a Q&A, and I got so many more questions than I was expecting, so a big thank you to everyone who asked one! I also want to express my gratitude to my 200+ followers! You guys are the best and thank you for following!
- What prompted you to start blogging?
I started blogging because it combines my three favorite subject areas. First, I love fashion, photography, and design, and my blog enables me to share my creativity in that regard. Second, I love to travel and learn about new cultures, and I felt inspired to share that love with others. Third, my blog gives me a voice and a chance to share things that I’m passionate about with my readers. Thank you to all my followers for your support!
- What’s been your favourite blog post so far?
My favorite blog post is my DIY Wish Book. I love the pictures and the message!
- Who is your inspiration?
My Momma, Jane Goodall, and Malala Yousafzai are my inspiration. These amazing women embody compassion, kindness, and strength, and I’d love to be like any one of them!
- What are some of your favourite posts to read?
I love reading travel posts, fashion posts (hauls, makeup, etc), and DIYS!
- Favourite Quote?
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” -Martin Luther King
- A movie that you recently watched?
Black Panther- It was amazing!
- Some things that changed your life?
I love this question so much. The first thing that changed my life was when my best friend got cancer in elementary school. It showed me how to be strong and compassionate, and changed my life forever. (Btw she is cured, healthy, and happy today!) The second thing that changed my life was when I was while snorkeling in Key West, and I saw a lemon shark about a meter and a half away from me. I made eye contact with it, and instead of being scared (like I though I would be), I was awe-struck by its beauty, and I learned how much I care about animals.
- Favourite place you have travelled to?
This is such a hard question because Morocco, Spain, France, Italy, and Hawaii were all beautiful in their own ways, but my favorite place was probably the Amalfi Coast, Italy (my featured image is from my trip there).
- What/who inspires you?
I’m inspired by the ocean, flowers, and culture. My inspiration comes from other blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, and the world around me. Music is also very inspiring 🙂
- Favourite place in your hometown?
My favorite place in my hometown is a Bubble Tea shop. My friends and I spend hours there chatting and drinking delicious boba tea. It’s our go-to spot!
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
I would like to work in international relations or humanitarian aid. I’m really passionate about human rights, and the ongoing refugee crisis just breaks my heart into pieces, so I’d really like to do something with that.
- What’s your favorite book?
My favorite books are Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton and I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai.
- What do you like to do outside of blogging?
I like to hangout with my friends, spend time with my family (including my two cute kittens), and dance.
- Polka dots or stripes?
- Who are a few of your favourite bloggers?
- Where do you imagine yourself in 10 years?
In ten years, I’ll be 27. I imagine myself living overseas maybe in Paris or Spain. I’d love to still be blogging!
- What is your favorite city?
Definitely Barcelona. I loved it so much because of the people, the atmosphere, the food, and the culture.
- What is something special about blogging to you?
I love being able to share a message and hopefully inspire others!
- What is something personal about you that you’d like to share with your followers?
I can’t think of any super personal fact or juicy secret, so my personal fact is that I’m an only child 🙂
- What is your favorite French word?
Le pamplemousse! It’s so fun to say and it means grapefruit.
- What inspired your blog name?
I was thinking about doing a post on this, so I’ll keep it a secret for now hehe
- What other languages would you like to learn?
I’d love to speak so many languages! I’d love to speak Spanish because the U.S has a surprising amount of Spanish speakers, and I feel like I’m missing out on a beautiful language. Next I’d like to learn Arabic or Chinese because they are drastically different from English, and I feel like I’d be able to connect with a whole other side of the world.
- What is your dream vacation?
My dream vacation is to go to Bali, Indonesia. It looks so beautiful, and the food sounds amazing!
- Do you know what a Quokka is, and do you like it?
I didn’t know what a Quokka is but I just looked it up and they are so cute! I definitely like it!
- What 3 things would you take with you if you were stuck on a stranded island?
I would take my phone, a survival guide book, and sunscreen.
- If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Since I said Bali above, I’d also love to see Australia, Thailand, the Netherlands, India, Kenya, Israel, and Brazil.
- Favourite season?
100% Summer! I feel so happy and inspired in the summertime, and I love the long days.
Once again, thanks to everyone who asked a question, and thank you for 200 followers! I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know me a little bit better, and I’ll see you next week with a very exciting post♥
