Sofie's Questions

What do you love most about blogging?
As you may have noticed I've been a bit AWOL from blogging at the moment and that is simply because I'd lost my way. I'd forgotten why I started, I'd forgotten what I loved about it, and I had started to do what I thought was expected of me instead of what I wanted to do. But this wee break has helped me remember that I love blogging because I love to write, it is that simple. I love to rant, I love to let people know what I think about the things I fill my life with, and I love to just sit down at my computer (or with my notebook) and watch the words flow out of me. 

What's your favourite experience ever?
Without a doubt being married! It started with the most relaxed and totally "us" wedding ceremony ever (which by the way included sand in my toes, Disney music and the awkward moment my dear husband couldn't get the ring on my finger) and it has developed every day since. When you get married people always ask "Does it feel any different?" and in a major way it really doesn't, BUT in those small, almost imperceptible ways, those tiny moments and realisations it feels amazing. No fleeting experience can ever compare to the experience of being married to your favourite person (that isn't my father :-p) in the world. 

If you were a Disney Princess who would you be?
Argh! Aurora or Rapunzel, Rapunzel or Aurora?? I just don't know. Although Rapunzel has a chameleon and a horse, so yeah probably Rapunzel.

What country do you really want to travel to?
Can I say, all of them? Ha, I guess if I really had to pick just one it would be the United States because each State is different and there are so many things I want to visit, and photograph, and do. So yeah if i'm being smart about it it's the US but if I was to say it off the top of my head it would be the Maldives. 

Online shopping or real shopping?
Real shopping every damn time. Strangely though I don't like the actual act of shopping, but I do like buying new things lol. 

What is your dream job?
I've had many dream jobs throughout my life but one constant has always been that I want to write. It is my biggest passion and If I could make a living off it I would be in heaven. Sadly though it's not that easy to just become a bestseller so right now I'm dreaming of becoming a teacher. 

If your life were a book or a movie what would the title be? 
I always joke that my life story would be called "WTF Just Happened??" I was going to try and come up with something more intelligent but screw it, live is a series of crazy events and questionable choices so yeah we're sticking with "WTF Just Happened??"

Best sing-a-long song?
Oh my God!! I am a singer this is difficult! I sing along to bloody everything, not always in tune I'll admit but most of the time I like to think I'm nailing it. My go to drunken party rousing tune is Build Me Up Buttercup so let's go with that shall we.

Best Chick-Flick?
Dirty Dancing! Has anybody ever answered this question differently? If they have sit them down and make them watch it over and over until they realise the error of their ways. 

Describe yourself in one word!
Loving <3

Well, that was fun! Now I have to think of 10 questions (I'm avoiding the nominating part for as long as possible)...

Do you identify as a feminist-What does feminism mean to you?

What would a scented candle named after you smell like?

What is the theme tune of your life?

If you could only read one more book for the rest of your life what would it be?

If you were on Death Row what would you want for your last meal?

Who is your hero?

You have a whole day to yourself- what are you doing?

Keanu Reeves or Johnny Depp?

What is the number 1 thing you want to do before you die?

What do you think is the most interesting fact about you? 

Right then, my nominees are:

Chantel from Bonnie Blondie
Chelsea from Chelsea Potter
Kirsty from Kirsty Ralph
Estelle from Let Me Go XO
Sammy from Little Fickle
Hayley from It's Just Me Hayley D

Have fun ladies and remember and tag me on Twitter with your links once you've done your post. 

Much Love

OOTD // The Phone Edition // Iconemesis Phone Case*

It occurred to me recently that as fashion and beauty bloggers we put so much stock in what we put on our faces, and how we dress our bodies. We agonise over the right face cream, we argue with ourselves to justify that new "perfect" pair of shoes, and for some of us we might even let our aesthetic obsession slip over into our homes. I for one focus on the smaller aspects of style, a little addition to my art collection, the cute and quirky bag that'll make a plain all black outfit stand out, and what exactly my accessories and bits and bobs say about me (or in some cases what they say to other people).
More often than not you will see that I'm sending a message with what I choose to put on display, and one of my favourite ways to do this is with my phone! 
"What? Did she just say her phone? What is she talking about?" 
I know some of you are thinking I've lost my mind but hear me out. What is the one thing our generation is never without? Our phones have become an extension of us, we use them for absolutely everything, gone are the days where all we could do was text, call and maybe play snake! While I do miss snake and the durability of the mobile phones of old (Nokia 3310- you will always have a place in my heart) I wouldn't go back to that time for anything. 
My phone makes it feel like my best friend doesn't live on the other side of the country, my phone helps me stay up to date with what is happening in the world, and yes it does still give me the ability to send a text or make a phone call should the need arise. With all this in mind is it not only fair that I put as much thought into dressing my faithful piece of tech as I do myself? Ok, some of you make think that is crazy but to me it seems completely normal so...let's have a look at my phone's outfit of the day (time being).


Isn't she a beauty?! Now I am a huge fan of pop-art and so upon seeing this sassy little babe I just had to have it. The lovely Sammy at Iconemesis asked me to choose my favourite from their range and I was so excited that I hopped right on over to have a look at what they had on offer, and boy was I spoiled for choice!

In all honesty I was torn between getting this one and one of the many gorgeous cases on offer, which by the way, includes Fifi Lapin!!! But my love of a sassy broad and an even sassier message won the internal battle. "Frankly my Dear..." is a phrase that flits through my head on numerous occasions daily (I work in hospitality) and this way I can say it without ever having to say it :-).

Oh and I haven't even told you the best bit yet...if you want your own Boyarde case, or Fifi, or any of the other adorable, quirky cases they have on offer they are only £10-£15 on the website!! Considering the quality, finish and amazeness of this case I think the prices are incredible, it is taking every ounce of my being not to buy the whole collection (I have a holiday to save for)!

If you are looking for something to jazz up your favourite piece of tech then seriously I would definitely head over and have a look at Iconemesis's range. And look how cute they look together...

Much Love
AJ
