You’re probably wondering what the Blue Sky Tag is. I was too. My girl Jessica from Diary Of A Toronto Girl tagged me in it and I thought why not? This is why I love blogging. Community over competition, am I right? Anyways, here’s the gist of it:
The blogger must:
- Answer 11 questions asked by the tagger
- Nominate 11 other bloggers
- Ask them 11 different questions
What is you most prized possession right now?
I would say my most prized possession is my Canon Rebel T5i – my boyfriend got it for me for Christmas last year, and I’ve had so much fun learning how to take better photos, and stepping up my photography game.
If you could change one thing about Instagram, what would it be?
Hmm, that’s a tough one. I actually have ALOT of issues with Instagram right now, but if I have to pick one, I’d say how it has become all about numbers. I am trying really hard to care less about that and more about the content I’m creating but it’s a little hard at time, since a lot brands/influencers measure by numbers.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I love browsing on Pinterest for style inspo but mostly I find inspiration in other content creators. Some of the bloggers I’m obsessed with (as in check their sites multiple times a day) are Lion in the Wild, Sazan, and Styled & Smitten.
What would you describe your personal style as?
I’d categorize my style as casual with a little bit of edge. I tend to stick with neutrals and don’t like anything too girly.
What was the first social media account you ever had?
I want to say LiveJournal, but it also could have been MySpace.
If you could retire anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Definitely Florida. Call me unoriginal all you want but its full of sun, beaches, and all the snow birds I could hope to befriend. I’d also consider Vancouver, obviously because its gorgeous and I love the west coast vibe.
Where do you usually do your blogging-related work?
I am someone who is easily distracted (by my dog) so I try to never work from home. I love working at coffee shops, I could sit there writing all day. Bonus points if they serve a good latte and the aesthetics are on point. I will also take my laptop to my boyfriend’s house, and plop myself on his couch to work on blog posts while he watches hockey.
What is the last song you listened to?
Russ – I Wanna Go Down With You
Who are the top five people in your “suggested” list when you search on Instagram? (If you don’t want to name specific people, just label “blogger friend” or whatever fits)
- Blogger – Alyssa.Lenore
- Blogger – Sazan
- Blogger – Lion in the Wild (told you I was obsessed)
- Blogger friend
- My work account that I manage
What beauty products have you repurchased the most?
I actually checked my previous purchases on Sephora.com for this because I can’t remember. It’s a tie between Anastasia Beverly Hills DIPBROW Pomade and First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser, both of which I use every day.
What is your favourite quote of all time?
As cheesy as it sounds, my favourite quote is “Not all those who wander are lost” by J. R. R. Tolkien. Not only because I am a die hard LOTR fan (#nerdalert), but also because I have always felt the non-traditional path is the one for me and this quote could not be more fitting.
