Hello lovelies, today's article differs from what I normally post here, but it's equally awesome. My fellow blogger, Sophia Monago has included me in a tagging game of questions and answers. Basically I have to write a blog post with my answers to eleven of her questions, and then tag ten other blogger-friends with a set of my own questions. So here we go, let the game begin :)

Why did you want to be a fashion  blogger?

Growing up, my life has always revolved around style. I would watch ice-skating championships on TV and be utterly mesmerised by the beautiful sparkly dresses the skaters wore during their performances, or I would spend hours admiring the stunning couture collections showcased on fashion TV channels. I never really knew or followed any fashion blogs until late last year. I would just always get complemented on my personal style, and one of my best friends discovered the world of blogosphere and advised me to get involved and create a blog of my own. I thought it was a brilliant idea, and so here I am! 

What items are you loving this season?

I am definitely loving the seventies vibe. Electric ambience of such a prominent fashion era is definitely an exciting comeback in the current season. So for me, it’s all about suede, fringe and flares this summer.

Who is you celebrity doppleganger when it comes to style? Someone dead or alive.

I never really followed or tried to recreate anyone’s style in particular, so I'm not sure who my celebrity doppleganger is. I guess you guys will be able to tell more than I ever could, if my ways of fashion remind you of someone else’s trend. Having said that, of course there are certain individuals, who’s style I really admire. I think Emma Watson definitely has a fascinating sense of fashion, her outfits are always so on point and elegant.

What is your favourite fashion item this season?

I guess this is a similar question to one of the above, but I would probably say that boyfriend jeans are currently topping the list of favourite items this season. They’re just so easy to wear, easy to style and a great staple item to have.

What is the best country you have ever been to?

Hands down, Egypt! It is such a beautiful country, with incredibly rich history and mesmerising architecture. I travelled to Egypt with friends on a three week tour around the whole country, so we were able to see everything from the great pyramids of Giza to the legendary Old Cataract hotel in Aswan city - Agatha Christie’s residence at the time when she wrote her novel “Death on the Nile”.

What was the last app you used on your phone?

Instagram :)

What is something you wouldn't leave home without?

Fine personal presentation is a key element to having a successful start to the day in my eyes, so always looking neat and polished is a good way to go. And of course, I would never leave house without my phone, keys and umbrella (it rains a lot in London).

If you need fashion or beauty advice, who do you go to?

My amazing mama!

What is the biggest risk or adventure you have ever taken or hope to take?

I started a fashion blog, it’s a pretty adventurous step to take in life. There are so many different avenues and possibilities on the horizon, so the future is definitely bright and holds some really amazing things :)

What is your favourite beauty product at the moment?

I love my Diorshow brow styler by Dior. It's an amazing little brow pencil, super precise and easy to apply. They come in two shades, but I wear mine in 001 (Universal Brown), it's a wonderful product, I highly recommend it.

On your laziest day, you have to head out but you would rather be lazy. What is your go to outfit?

On a slow day, I’d probably go for an all-black ensemble, something along the lines of short shorts and a shirt, paired with a pair of statement ballerinas and dark wayfarer sunglasses.
