Hello Lovely People💞!

Hope you are all having a fabulous summer🔅As I was scrolling through my emails I came upon not one but two nominations for the Liebster Award👑!

Both of which were from two of my favorite ladies whose blogs I love💕 and look forward to reading. So whose ready for a double episode  of getting to know your favorite Shopaholic 😉.

Many thanks to the lovely K.M Sutton from AnkhorYou, a gorgeous New Yorker whoes sense of humor and style always shine through her writing. Also to TheCrazyChicRashmi, love her yummy recipes esp the chocolate mousse 😋. Check out their awesome blogs ❣

I’ll answer Rashmi’s questions first✨

💟What is your goal in life?

⚜To be geniunely happy and content in whatever I do. 

💟What is the most dear memory from your childhood?



⚜The happiest times for me were summer vacations when we would all beg out parents to let us stay over at our grand parents house beause that’s where all our cousins would be. Playing out in the garden, swinging widly on the swings pretending they were space ships and the faster we would swing the further in we would go. Playing fun house and watching it on TV ( anyone remember watching that show❓)rooting for our favorite teams I would always end up on the gold team for some reason 🤔. Playing endless games of hide and seek, monkey monkey, ludo, carem, digging in the garden and making mud mountains, cooling off with the hose and getting yelled at for using up all the water. Eating homemade fries and countless bags of chilly chips (I don’t think calories were invented back then😋).

💟Favourite food?

⚜I love Daal Chawal I could eat it everyday. 
💟Why did you start blogging?

⚜I was bored to tears, had nothing better to do and it seemed like a better idea than sulking. 😋

💟Your inspiration or your role model?

⚜Hmm…honestly no one yet has inspired me to do anything worthwhile till now so I guess I’m still waiting for that person to materialize 🙃
💟What is that one thing you cannot live withot? (I mean apart from oxygen 😛 )

⚜You can learn to live without anything or anyone trust me. That age old I can’t live without you or I’ll die without you line❓Nope all bull****. I dropped my iPhone in the sink and had to go without for two weeks and I’m still here aren’t i❓

💟Where are you from?

Why do I owe you anything?💰
💟How many languages can you speak?

⚜Two and a half, English, Urdu and Spanish.

💟Where do you see yourself 15 yeras from now?
⚜I can’t even see myself five minutes from now I’m not very clairvoyant ✨.

💟Do you have any pets?

⚜No I don’t want anything in the house that can’t use the toilet and put the lid back down .

💟 Biggest pet-peeve?

When people accept blogger awards and don’t bother nominating anyone I hello you did read the rules right❓

So hopefully some of you aren’t ready to bring out the barf bags yet here are K.M Sutton’s questions. Are we still having fun 😉

💟 What is your song of summer?

⚜The last song I was actively listening to was I hate you I love you by Gnash.

💟Do you have a secret talent?
⚜ I can sing 🎼.

💟What made you start blogging?

⚜Lol if I remember I was bored.

💟Coffee or tea?

Tea for breakfast, coffee any other time.

💟What city or country are you dying to visit?
⚜ Haha I love how she phrased this😂. Right now any place cool we are dealing with 40+🌡degrees here. Actually I wanted to visit Eygpt after I saw The Mummy. Brandon Fraser was so cute💕.

💟What is a fun fact about yourself?

Don’t you mean embarrassing fact😉. I love talking to myself in the mirror, I am at my craziest and most ridiculous when I’m by myself.

💟Do you prefer the book version or movie adaption? 

⚜Book version for sure, I hate when I have to sit through the movie expecting it to be a certain way and it isn’t.😡

💟Nude lipstick or red lipstick?

Red❗️Go bold or go home ❗️ 

💟What is your favorite app or site? 



My go to sites for shopping are loft, Amazon and zappos and for browsing I love Etsy. 

💟What is one beauty product you can not live without? 



⚜My Kajal stick I feel naked without it 😳

💟What is something you are looking forward to in the next few months? 

⚜Get ready for a shit, boring answer: Nothing😒. I’ve been let down so many times lately I’ve started taking things as they come.

Liebster Award Nominations!! ✨🎉

Hello lovely people! 💖

Thanks to the wonderful Cinderzena😘 I have received my 2nd nomination for the Liebster award🎊!

image

You would think Carolina Herrera or Oscar de larenta would have sent over a free gown 👗 by now 😉!

Anyways thanks a bunch💐 to Cinderzena

a modern day 👑 , Jaffa cake loving Cinderella ✨! Check out her awesome blog and as well those of the nominees below that I have picked out .

But before that here are my answers to the questions asked to me by Cinderzena 🖋

How did you come up with your blog name and how hard was it to figure it out?

👑It was easy peasy actually i adore 💖shopping so it had to be something around that .

What inspires you to keep going?

👑I like making people laugh or atleast enjoy themselves and everytime I see a positive comment it’s like a surge of adrenaline. I mean let’s face it majority of us starting out don’t make any money or fame from blogging so it’s just the love💖 of writing and having your work appreciated that keeps us all going . 💋

Whats the craziest activity you have done in the past three years?

👑I’ve done a lot of crazy stuff in the last three years which I cannot reveal here at the risk of being prosecuted 😇

Country or city life, and why?

👑I’m a city girl born and raised , I can’t stand country life I get bored out of mind if all I have for company is the birds and the bees 😳

Reading or listening to music, and why?

👑I only listen to music when I’m working out or doing something equally boring 🎧. Like washing dishes ☹️. I loved to read , but since Harry Potter I haven’t really found anything that I can be addicted to again 😢📚

image

One thing you believed as a kid, but now think it is totally dumb of you to think of.

👑I was a total believer in fairytale romance💖 all through my teenage years and beyond but after being badly burned I now realize that true love and happily ever after doesn’t exist. 💔

image

✨Whats the best part about blogging?

👑I can reach out to so many people and make friends ✨💞.I used to and still do at times feel incredibly lonely at times 😢😞 blogging helps overcome that.

image

✨ Would you chose swimming in a sea with the possiblity of a shark encounter or bungee jumping?

👑hmm I have a fear of heights so I guess I’ll attempt a showdown with a shark 😲

✨Favorite novel of all time?

👑All Harry Potter books I’m sorry I’m not much of a classics fan 😳

What has been a post in your blog that took the longest to write?

👑Its a post that’s still in the draft stages that I am struggling with for two weeks now 😡 It’s just not funny enough and if it can’t make me laugh then it’s not good enough for anyone else either cause I’m not easily tickled ☹ p.s I’m my own Guinea pig 🐷

Advice to first time bloggers?

👑Don’t get caught up in the number game that I must have 200 followers or whatever. Write with passion and people will fall in love with your work and hit that follow button without you even trying.

❣I hope you guys enjoyed getting to know a teeny bit more about me ☺️ And now here are the rules for the Liebster Award Nominees ✨
