I have been given a I love your blog prize! Thank you so much P.K. at Dill and Parsley!
the prize rules are:
do an entry with the prize,
answer the questions,
give the prize to 10 blogs.
here it goes:
1. why did you create this blog?
I have many friends who live abroad and my friend Elizabeth suggested I start blogging so she and my other friends could follow my everyday life. At first I started the blog with one post. It took almost another year until I started writing more frequently. This is the reason I write in english. My mothertongue is swedish and finnish. I did not know then, that I could connect with other bloggers, some I now consider friends. Nor did I know how warm and generous the blogworld is. Thank you.
2. what kind of blogs do you follow?
I follow many different kinds of blogs. I am interested in many topics. Some blogs I follow because I get inspired or love the humour.
3. favourite makeup brand?
I seldom use make-up. In my profession I do, and then I try to choose ecological procucts that have not been tested on animals.
4. favourite clothing brand?
I couldn´t name one. I like to combine high quality basics, with second-hand treasures and high-street brands. I also like to wear things I or my friends have made. I´m also a huuuuuge fan of upcykled or remade procucts. I also like to wear finnish design; Marimekko and Globe Hope and Ivana Helsinki can be found in my wardrobe.
5. your indispensable makeup product?
6. your favourite colour?
I couldn´t name one. Maybe purple/ lilac/ plum. If you ask me again tomorrow, I would maybe reply different.
7. your perfume?
8. your favourite film?
Once again, I couldn´t name just one. Oh my, this was difficult. I loved this film: I´m a cyborg but that´s ok. In america. Paris, je t'aime. La vie en rose. Walz with Bashir. Brokeback mountain. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. In the mood for love. Monthy Python productions. All films with Chaplin, Audrey Hepburn...
9. what country would you like to visit and why?
Iran. I find the persian culture very interesting. And the language. I have met many iranians in exile, and really admired their courage. I recommend as a good read Marjane Satrapi´s Persepolis. I also enjoyed the film. I´d love to travel in the middle-east. I have been to Jordan and to Egypt. Maybe one day, it is possible to travel to Iran.
10. make the last question and answer to yourself.
What has recently inspired you?
This. I am fan of TED.
The ten blogs that I give the prize to are: Shari, Linda, Henrietta, Genie, Annie, Floss, Zoltan, Mrs M, Linnea, Renilde, Pia, Don.
PS. No stress. Answer if you feel like it and have the time.
