Well its been sad times at Phillips HQ with my beloved MacBook deciding once more that it needs a visit to Apple Hospital. I’ll be honest, this time, the prognosis doesn’t look good.
That means that lots of posts that I’d lined up ready to post are being held hostage within the memory of said MacBook and unable to be released (why, oh why do I not write my posts directly in wordpress? You’d think I’d learn but even NOW I’m writing this on a separate word document).
Anyhoo, whilst I get back in to the mojo of blogging – which, believe me is coming back with gusto – lots of things to post over the next week (and not one – please buy me a MacBook pro post in sight) here is a bit of a fun post.
Jenni the fabulous blogger behind the awesome Make Up for Morrissey blog tagged me in one of her posts. She was tagged in a Liebster Award post where she was challenged to share 11 things about her and then ask some of her blogger mates a few questions…
Well I can’t think of 11 interesting things about me (seriously!) so I’ll just answer the questions that Jenni has asked…
What is your favourite poem?
A few years ago I was introduced to the work of Charles Bukowski…one of his poems entitled “So you want to be a writer” has remained my favorite.
“Unless it comes unasked out of your heart and your mind and your mouth and your gut, don’t do it.”
What beauty item could you not live without?
Face cream. I don’t wear a lot of make up, I’m lucky (although at the moment the over indulgence of chocolate is showing) to have pretty clear skin so my only must haves are face cream and lip balm.
Kindle or book?
BOTH! I got a kindle this Christmas and I LOVE it but I also love the feel of a good book. I’ve been playing around with the e-reader craze on my ipad but not managed to fully switch. Magazines they are a different, I’ve been downloading those to my ipad but only to hide just how much per month I spend on those glossies!
Essentially, nothing will feel as good as paper!!
How many nail polishes do you have?
WAY too many to count. Being a lifestyle writer I get sent a lot of presents, nail varnishes are amongst the top items!
Nope, none. I do have a birth mark that looks a little bit like Italy on my left thigh though. Only really visible when I’m hot!
Regrets…I have a few, but then again, too few to mention. OK so I’m not channeling Frank but seriously, I do have regrets, I think everyone does but thankfully mine are nothing that can’t be undone.
So, I’m going to ask YOU the same questions, let me know in my comment section if you’d like to play!
