20 Questions Tag!

I 've been tagged by the lovely Stefanie from The Lip Print (and you should definitely follow her if you don't already - she does wonderful FOTD's) to do the 20 Questions Tag!

Many thanks for tagging me Stefanie and I 'm sorry to have kept you waiting!

So, here's my 20 answers:

1. Things you cannot leave the house without:
I 'm quite practical when it comes to this one: I cannot leave my house without my keys, simple as that. If I 'm out for a short walk or just at my bf's, I don't really need much else! It's kind of liberating not carrying around a huge bag all the time!

2. Favourite brand of makeup:
MAC is the first brand that comes to my mind, they have a great selection of all sorts of products to choose from. However, I don't mind some YSL every now and then, that brand almost always makes me feel special somehow!

3. Favourite flower:
I can't really choose one... My most favourites are roses (the American Beauty type ones with the true rose scent, not the florist ones), lilacs and gardenias.

4. Favourite clothing store:
Lately it's Zara and Bershka (it's cheaper, teen - targeted version). I tend to go for more basic, simple designs as I grow older, so I can almost always find something I like there!

5. Favourite perfume:
Gucci Envy Me 2 for quite some time now.

6. Heels or flats:
Heels, definitely. I 've had a thing for heels ever since trying out my mum's ones as a girl! Sadly though, I cannot wear them if I have to stand on my feet all day, or run errands etc, so flats is the easiest choice!

7. Do you make good grades:
All through elementary school and high school I made excellent grades (honors at the end of each year etc). At university things changed a bit, but my average is still between good and very good, I 'm wishing it stays like that until graduation!

8. Favourite colours:
Purple. But not so much as a colour I 'd wear - in that case it would be black, grey, brown or white.

9. Do you drink energy drinks:
I used to drink a Red Bull every day a few years back! Now, I rarely drink them and I try to avoid them even on nights before exams - I just hate feeling so drained when the caffeine rush is over.

10. Do you drink juice:
Yes, I really like juice, as a matter of fact, I 'm having some while making this post! :) I love trying out new fruit combinations, the one I 'm drinking right now is an orange/pineapple/apple/lime one!

11. Do you like swimming:
I love swimming, even though I didn't learn properly until I was 9 or 10. I really enjoy being in the water, it's a calming sensation for me, plus it's my favourite form of exercise.

12. Do you eat fries with a fork:
Usually I don't, I think fries are meant to be eaten with the fingers! But I will use a fork if I 'm at a restaurant or if they come on a dish, where I 'd have to use a fork anyways!

13. Favourite moisturiser:
At the moment it's YSL Hydra Feel Water Gel Moisturizer.

14. Do you want to get married later on in life:
Hmmm, that's a tough one... I 'm not quite sure yet to be honest! I think I 'd like to if I was ready to start a family or if it was like a private ceremony. I don't really like big weddings, I think they can sometimes be more of a "show" for the friends and family, rather than a celebration of the commitment between two people...

15. Do you get mad easily:
Not so much anymore! I used to be extremely short tempered, to the point where it was really energy consuming. Now I rarely get upset, but if I do, you don't want to be near me!

16. Are you into ghost hunting:
What exactly is ghost hunting? So, my answer is no! I 'm open to the paranormal in general, but that's about it...

17. Any phobias:
Cockroaches!!! I 'm absolutely terrified of them! Also, I 'm afraid of my loved ones not being well and lastly of accidentally hurting someone.

18. Do you bite your nails:
No, I 've never done that, my nails are in bad shape as it is!

19. Have you ever had a near death experience:
No, thankfully I haven't and I 'd like it to keep it that way! :)

20. Do you drink coffee:
Yes! I love coffee, I 'm one of those people who cannot function without it, but enjoy it's social aspect as well, it's the most usual thing here to meet your friends over a frappe or a freddo and catch up! During the winter months I had reached the alarming quantities of 4 cups a day, but recently I have cut down to about 2 maximum! And no sugar, thank you!

So, that was it, hope I didn't bore you that much!

I 'll leave this tag open to everyone who hasn't done this yet! Please let me know if you do the tag, I 'd love to read your answers! :)

What's your opinion?

  1. gucci envy is my all time fav!

  2. @Mare P: Ooh, I know, it's a great perfume! ;)


  3. I agree what you say about big weddings. You know that in a big wedding not everyone will really be happy for you..its such bad karma. Id do a private religious ceremony but have an after wedding party for everyone else!

    But i notice Tina you forgot to mention what kind of coffee you like! Greek (NOT Turkish ofcourse :p) Cappuccinos? Lates?.. you have to give more detail!!

    Great answers by the way..was fun to read! xxxx :)

  4. @Tali: Good, glad to know I 'm not the only one thinking like that...! The big open party sounds like a good idea though! ;)

    Haha, I totally skipped that about the coffee, huh? I 'm a true addict, so I don't discriminate! But it's filter, turkish and espresso's in the winter and frappe's (which is basically iced whipped instant coffee) and freddo cappuccino's in the summer!

    When it's Starbucks it's Caramel Macchiato (looove) and Iced White Caffe Mocha..! ;)

    So, basically a little bit of everything, lol! :)))


  5. a true coffee addict. God i love anything sweet and creamy from starbucks.. ummmm :) haha i could practically live off coffee!! xx

  6. @Tali: Lol, yep! ;) And if we 're talking about Starbucks, they probably have so many calories, that you could! :))) :PP



Thank you for stopping by!
