100 Questions Tag – Borrowed from Brooke Jade!!

I saw this lovely post on Brooke Jade’s blog 100 Questions Tag and just loved it!! It was so nice reading about her. I miss this kind of post so I asked if I might be tagged and do it and she kindle said “yes”!! Thank you for the inspiration, dear!!

1.) What’s your favorite season?

Fall.

2.) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.

I don’t have a book here, so I’ll go to my kindle (on my phone), find one of the books I’m reading and get back to you.

So I opened The Player: The Wedding Pact #2 by Denise Grover Swank. I read the first book and liked it, even though this is not really my favorite genre. I decided I would buy the second and have yet to start it.

Page 14, line 8:

«(…) but the look of recognition in her own eyes proved she was real.»

3.) Who was the last person you texted?

My mom, last night. I always text her before I go to bed to say goodnight.

4.) Before you started this survey, what were you doing?

I was looking at a few old posts, to check to-do lists and see what I might have forgotten to do, so I can write a new, compiled list.

5.) What is the last thing you watched on TV?

Outlander – season 3, episode 6.

6.) Without looking, guess what time it is.

10.45 a.m

7.) Now look at the clock–what time is it?

10:35 a.m (10 minutes is not so bad)

8.) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

I’m at the library so nothing too loud. But the air conditioner running, a few cars outside and someone just coughed.

10.) Do you like fish?

I do like Salmon, codfish and tuna. I eat anything I absolutely have to but don’t like it much. I prefer meat for sure.

11.) Mac or PC?

PC.

12.) Do you remember your dreams?

I usually do.

13.) When did you last laugh?

Coming here this morning. Rui and I were listening to the radio and a guy was telling this story of a man who decided it was a good idea to masturbate in the car and the police pulled him over and found him butt naked and completely covered in Vaseline. Go figure.

20.) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
At the moment, I would focus on helping the victims of the wildfires that destroyed such a big part of my country this year. Some people lost EVERYTHING, so I would help them in building new houses, furnishing them and getting back on their feet.

I don’t have a car or a license. Rui’s car is the only car in our household. He changes the oil in his car and takes care of some other things as well. He’s quite handy and we save a lot of money because he buys the parts and does things himself.
 46.) Do you have any phobias?
I have this thing with electronics and electricity. I hate surveillance cameras and I’m terrified because I have to get two CT scans on Thursday and I have no idea how I will feel inside such a scary machine. Even x-rays scare the crap out of me.

The Lottery Tag

The Lottery Tag was created by my dear friend and one of my favorite bloggers, Natalie.

Here’s how she describes her tag:

A quick synopsis of The Lottery Tag: Imagine you won the lottery. There is no set sum of money – it could be $100 or $100 million dollars – let your imagination run with it. All up for interpretation. Tell us what you would do with that money, and then tag a couple of your blogging friends to do the same. Or don’t. No need to mention me for creating it; you can if you want, but I wouldn’t mind if you didn’t.

Natalie is an amazing blogger and this is such a wonderful idea! You should check her blog and you should also do this tag, even if I don’t nominate you.

This tag is divided into 3 categories:

  • Small Stuff
  • Big Stuff
  • Really Big Stuff

So, if I won the lottery, I would do the following:

Small Stuff:

  • Pay for piano lessons;
  • Pay for a personal trainer;
  • Pay for medical school;
  • Get more pets;
  • Pay for my sisters studies;
  • Pay for dance lessons;
  • Pay for photography lessons;
  • Pay for a private German teacher;

I would buy:

Lifestyle_4l

1267759_T5

 

l_10151615_001

  • A good camera, which I don’t know how to pick right now;
  • A whole new wardrobe;
  • Good presents for my friends (whatever they needed or even money)
  • A ton of books;
  • Lots of Cath Kidston products:

Big Stuff:

  • I would pay for a nice wedding for us

0e9398f812917b1474143b7a36dc720d

  • Buy a car for myself and whatever car Rui wanted;
Fiat-500-Pink
FIAT 500
  • Share them money with all of our family members, both sides of the family;
  • We would fund Rui’s business ideas;
  • I would get pregnant;
  • I would adopt;
  • We would travel;
  • I would help my mom with her dream of having an animal shelter;
  • I would help several causes: Single moms, teenage moms, unemployed people, the homeless, the poor, the ill, the elderly who have no one to take care of them. My job would be to help people getting their lives on track and help where I could.

Really Big Stuff:

  • I would invest in properties to rent;
  • I would invest the money so we could leave off of interest;
  • I would invest in several businesses;
  • I would buy our dream home:

eacb7ca40e7c74227d316d5186058849

And that’s it. That’s how I would use the money if I won the lottery. My family and friends would be taken care of and we would make some of our dreams come true, as well as live a more comfortable life.

The images I’m using either come from google images or my Pinterest account.

Thank you so much for reading.

P.S. Oh, I forgot! I nominate:

“Thankful for…The Tag” and The Blue Sky Tag #4

I was nominated for both this Tags by Sangbad, who blogs over at Thoughts of Words. If you don’t know him, please make sure to go over to his blog, read a few posts. You will find great fiction and amazing, beautiful poems. I highly recommend that you head over to his blog and give him a follow.

I would like to thank him for this double nomination and say that it is a pleasure to do both Tags!

I would like to start by the “Thankful for… Tag”

The rules are:

  1. Name three things you are thankful for;
  2. Nominate the fellow bloggers to continue the Tag;
  3. Device a logo for your Tag;

Here is my logo:

Be Grateful!.jpg

Here are three things I’m thankful for:

  1. My family. This obviously includes my amazing husband (we are legally bound because we have shared the same address for over two years, so I can call him my husband, although we are not married yet!), his family, our dog, my mom, sister, her boyfriend, my stepdad and their cat, Gatsby. My best friends are also family for me, so I’m including them as well.
  2. My support system. The amazing people that support me while I’m recovering from my depression. It has been such a tough journey and it took a while for people to realize and understand I was really suffering and that I needed help, but when they finally did, I got the support I needed.
  3. My strength. I’ve been through so much and there have been times when I have wanted to give every thing up. But I didn’t. I’ve been having a difficult time for many years, but I’m still standing and trying to get better, to get healthier and to be happy. I’m thankful that I haven’t given up on myself.

Here are my nominees:

I nominate any reader who’s first name starts with a B. (Sorry, too many Awards and Tags, have nominated way too many people more than once). (You’re automatically nominated)

The Blue Sky Tag #4

wp-1489160360279

 

As you can see I have been nominated for this Tag several times, but could not pass on Sangbad’s nomination. He was nominated for the Tag 3 times, so he got 33 questions. He told his nominees they could choose 11 from those 33 and answer them.

The questions I choose are:

  • If you were given a chance to make a difference in someone else’s life, how would you do it?

I would adopt an older child or maybe even a teenager, those no one wants. I would love them like my own, give them the chance of a happy life, pay for their studies and be there for them for the rest of my life.

  • Biggest lie that you heard from your ex or if you are single/no ex yet- anyone that is special to you.

I feel bad sharing this but I have an ex who would say that he was home studying and the next day someone would come up to me and say “hey, I had a great time with x at the club last night. No need to explain how pissed I would get, right?

  • Sun or moon?

Sun!

  • Name one trait in you that you want to give up and why?

The occasional laziness.

  • Do you own a car? Which one? Do you have a dream car? which one?

I do not own a car. I ride with Mr. R. I also don’t have a driver’s license but I would love a Smart or a Beetle.

  • Do you still have your grandparents?

Only my grandmother on my mother’s side. Her name is Teresa. She is young at 69, but she has dementia, which is really hard on our family.

  • What is your fashion statement?

None? I don’t think I’m fashionable at all. I just wear clothes that I think are cute, always trying to hide my…. huh… curves lol

  • If you are stranded on an island with a stranger how would you introduce yourself without saying your name?

Hey there. I’m stupid as fuck. I got stranded on a desert island. So typical of me, I’m such a wreck, literally.

  • One thing you fear the most.

Losing my loved ones.

  • Describe your heart’s state in 6 words.

I need my lovely delicious cereal!

  •   Pizza or burger?

Come on, that’s the same as asking me if I prefer my right arm or my left arm.

Here are my nominees:

I nominate anyone who sees this and whose blog name starts with a C. (You’re automatically nominated)!

Friends For Days Tag – Check the first nominees!

After getting so much support from so many of my reader friends, I decided to go for it and create the logo. The main idea is to encourage new blogger or some that are shy and don’t engage in the blogging community because they don’t feel confident enough to do so. We can all get to know new bloggers, make friends and make our blogging family grow!

You don’t have to do it if you don’t want to 🙂 It was just an idea, let’s see if it gets somewhere!

Thank you so much!!

 

Friends For Days Tag

Dear friends, I decided to create a TAG!!!!

First of all, this is my logo:

ountry Wedding Club (1)

The rules are:

  • Say who created the Tag;
  • Thank the person who nominated you!
  • Choose 5 blogs you don’t know very well or that are new;
  • Explore those blogs, read a few posts, like some;
  • Say 3 things you love about those blogs;
  • Those blogs are automatically nominated to do the same!

My idea is to support new blogs, to get bloggers to compliment each other and to get to know new bloggers! I love bringing people close together and I thought this tag would do just that!

Before I officially nominate my first bloggers, I want your opinion!

Do you think I should go ahead and create this Tag?

Do you like my idea?

I would love to hear your suggestions.

The Blue Sky Tag #3

I have been nominated for The Blue Sky Tag once again, this being my third time doing it. I don’t mind at all and I’m extremely happy and honored that my dear friend Natalie thought of nominating me for it. I highly recommend that you visit and follow her blog, because she is really good and one of my favorites!

Here are the rules:

  • Give 11 questions
  • Tag 11 people
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you

 

Here are her questions:

  1. What is your favorite article of clothing to wear? In all honesty, I love dresses and skirts. I think they are really feminine and girly. I don’t wear them much right now because I feel (and know) that, being overweight, they don’t look good on me because of such wide hips and fat legs and knees.
  2. Short boots or tall boots? Being completely honest, once again, I love both but tall boots don’t fit on my fat legs. I can’t zip them up. So I wear booties for now 🙂
  3. Snapchat or Instagram? I made a Snapchat account because I thought they name “Snapcheila” would be really funny, but I have never used the app at all. It’s one of those apps that I don’t understand. I love Instagram.
  4. Favorite movie? Can’t really pick one. I really love The Painted Veil, American History X, The Notebook, Forrest Gump, etc.
  5. Zoos or aquariums? None, actually. I love animals but don’t find watching them at the zoo or aquarium particularly interesting.
  6. How do you feel about museums? Love them, should take the time to go. Preferably alone, to really enjoy the experience.
  7. Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I used too. Big lists. This year I didn’t bother. Life gets in the way, usually.
  8. Do you like yoga? I’ve always liked it, but now I’m in love. Since finding a routine I love and doing it every day!
  9. Favorite band/artist? Many. James Morrison, One Republic, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, etc.
  10. Favorite time of year? From September to December. I really love the last few months of the year!
  11. Does pineapple belong on pizza? Well, I guess it does if you like it. Not for me thought. I hate sweet foods on my food. Does that make any sense?

 

Here are my questions:

  1. How old are you? (I ask this because I always think you guys are in your twenties and I’ve gotten surprises of both 35 and 14 lol)
  2. What is the best change you have ever made to your lifestyle?
  3. Do you still have your grandparents? Tell me something about them.
  4. What’s your favorite childhood memory?
  5. Tell me something about your first day of school?
  6. Do you own a car? Which one? Do you have a dream car? which one?
  7. Can you sing or dance? Or both?
  8. Do you miss someone right now?
  9. Is there something you regret doing in the last few months?
  10. Tell me about a famous woman or man who inspires you.
  11. What’s a controversial opinion that you have?

 

Here are my nominees:

  1. Sophie
  2. Glücksgeist
  3. Swetlana
  4. Aqsa
  5. Bea
  6. Sangbad
  7. Bhavana Jha

Dear friends, you are under no obligation of doing the tag if you have been nominated for it before or if you don’t like it or find it boring!! I love you guys anyway!! xo

P.S. I’m crazy as always. I think there was some 4th nomination for me somewhere but I forgot by whom. I’m so sorry!

The Blue Sky Tag #2

I was tagged again, this time by Azra and even though I have done this post very recently, I could not pass on her amazing questions could I? Also, the fact that she tagged me is reason enough to do it. She’s amazing, please go to her blog. Especially if you’re interested in beauty. She has a lot to teach!

Here are the rules:

  • Give 11 questions
  • Tag 11 people
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you

 

Here are her questions:

1. What is your favorite quick meal to make? – I have a few go-to meals for when I get home super late and don’t want to eat cereal. One of them is: You get canned tuna (canned in water, not vegetable oil), a bag of frozen veggies and cook some rice on the side. You saute the tuna in olive oil (garlic powder for me) and salt. When the tuna is becoming brownish you add the veggies to the pan or wok and let them cook, with the tuna. Once the rice is ready you add the rice and mix everything together. It’s very tasty, cheap, fast and easy to make.
2. Are you morning or night type of person? – I’m totally not a morning person. I love sleep. But I’m trying to change that and have a routine of going to be at 10 p.m and waking up at 6 a.m. I have to leave home at 9, and begin work at 10 and so this routine gives me 3 hours in the morning to work out, get ready without stress, eat breakfast in peace, read, and do little things around the house. It’s perfect.
3. How many siblings do you have? – I have a sister. A perfect sister that I love with all my heart. She’s 21 and her name is Neide (pronounce Nayd)
4. What is your favorite dessert ? – I have a sweet tooth,  so all of them? I really like to eat strawberries and cream. Not very bad, right? Unless you eat two pounds of strawberries and two cans of cream.
5. Three songs that you are obsessed at the moment? – That’s more than three but I haven’t gotten over the La La Land soundtrack yet.
6. What is the last thing you bought? – Food, one of those thingies that you stick to the wall to hang kitchen towels, some pure Vaseline to use as a face mask and that’ts it.
7. What is your favorite movie ever? – I love movies. I cannot choose one. At all.
8. How did you get name for your blog? – I love pink, I buy and have everything in pink so… I have pink for days.
9. Are you talkative or more silent type of person? – It really depends on who I’m with, on my mood, etc.
10. Do you have any pets? – My two year old dog, Rosa.
11. How would you describe yourself in three words? – Perfectionist (that’s mainly why I’m going crazy), hardworking and super responsible.

Here are my questions:

  1. Do you live an a house or an apartment?
  2. Where are you from?
  3. What do you do for a living? Are you happy doing it?
  4. What do you do to stay fit?
  5. What time do you wake up and go to bed?
  6. What’s your favorite thing to do on a Sunday?
  7. Have you ever been in love?
  8. What do you always have on your fridge or pantry?
  9. What TV shows do you follow right now?
  10. What was the last book you read?
  11. If you could only wear one for the rest of your life, lipstick or mascara?
