Before we dive into the Q&A I just thought I’d let you guys know that I usually find it really hard picking a single ‘favourite’, my favourites usually come in plurals but without further ado, let’s jump right in! ~

Questions asked by: @ThoughtsinLife  , answered by me. 

1.) Who is your hero? Can be anyone, a family member, Actor etc….

My Mum ~

Dimineața bună după galben se cunoaște :). Neatza!

2.) What is one of your favourite memories?

One? Just…one?
Off the top of my head though, I’d probably say Spirit ~ #childhoodmemories

3.) What was the last lie you told someone?

I can’t remember.

4.) What is your favourite Pizza topping?

[The choices >~< gosh!]
….I honestly can’t imagine Pizza without Cheese so I guess I’d choose that?
But…other than cheese, I’d probably pick Prawns or Pepperoni ~

5.) Do you enjoy spending time with family?

Every moment spent with my family, (yes, even the annoying ones!) mean a lot to me!
I always try my best to treasure time spent with them.
I don’t know who I’d be without my family! They add such sparkle my life ~

6.) What is an activity you do with your family?

The most consistent of all, is communicating. Though it may not seem like the most exciting of activities, it’s personally one of my favourites! Whether it’s discussing, debating or laughing our hearts out over reminiscing memories. The more we talk, the closer we become. The more we learn about each other, life and the world around us.

7.) What makes a conversation awkward for you?

One of the things that make a conversation awkward for me, is when someone isn’t empathetic/respectful towards your feelings or thoughts about a topic, and makes you feel really silly for expressing your point of view in the first place.

8.) Which Emoji is your least favourite?

Would least favourite slip in the category of the ‘dislike’? Because if so, then I’d choose the rude finger emoji.

9.) What are you afraid of?

"I keep hearing all these stupid things that I said with my stupid mouth." - Joanie by Silversage:

[+ as a result,
I always strive to be better, feesabililah (for the sake of Allah),
than the person I was yesterday ~]

10.) What does a perfect breakfast consist of for you?

My inner British-ness takes over when I think of a ‘perfect’ breakast ^-^

Here’s an idea of what it looks like in case you weren’t sure. It usually consists of Hash Browns, Turkey Bacon (is my absolute favourite, halal wise of course ^-^), Baked Beans, Eggs, Toast, Sausages, A Tomato, and Orange juice or Coffee ~

11.) Would you rather spend the day at the beach or in the snow? And why?

I’d rather spend the day at the beach because I find the waves calming, the sunshine comforting and love the feel of soft sand beneath my toes ~

[not to mention the shell collecting part, the sand angel wings, and building sandcastles! yes, i’m a child at heart. always and forever ~]

    1. There’s a quote from one of my favourite books which you may have read in one of my earliest blog posts which says: “Fear doesn’t shut you down, it wakes you up” and I think being aware of your fear is a huge step to overcoming it. Because you’re not denying it. Acceptance is a very powerful thing + I hope you’re able to find a way to turn your fear into a strength somehow one day ✨ I’m glad you enjoyed the post and the answers, thank you so much once again for nominating me 🙂✨

      1. Yes, that quote is empowering in so many ways and speaks the truth in yet a few words. Accepting is very difficult at a certain stage but once you overcome it and remove the fear you once had anything is possible. And you deserve the nomination 😊 so much
