Blog lovin'

Good evening! I rarely post this late in the day, but the little one just went down for a nap and my sinus-clearing tea is steeping (more on that tomorrow!) I recently received the i love your blog award from the ever lovely Cindy at quaint handmade. I haven't done one of these in ages! Here we go:

1. why did you create the blog?
It started out as a place to promote my shop but quickly evolved into a special spot where I collect pretty things, images of my life and little diddies about the happenings in my world.

2. what kind of blogs do you follow?
I'm smitten with pretty blogs. Simple ones, too. I find it inspiring to follow blogs where the authors are not only finding their own voice, but are also using their photography skills, meager or not, to show us their world. I love that!

3. favorite makeup brand?
Estee Lauder

4. favorite clothing brand?
Anything from Anthropologie

5. your indispensable makeup product?
God bless concealer. This mama needs it!

6. your favorite colour?

7. your perfume?
I wore perfume everyday till I became pregnant last year--hello super-duper sense of smell. I can't figure out where I buried all my bottles of scent.

8. your favorite film?
Oh dear, just one? Persuasion or Sense and Sensibility.

9. what country would you like to visit and why?
I would love to go to Istanbul or Morocco.

10. make-up the last question and answer it yourself: what would you write on your wall so you could remember it every day?
"It's all about perspective. And kindness."

The rules require that I bestow this award of love unto 10 others, so if you want to play along, consider yourselves recipients - Joyce, Krissy, Emily, Erin, Kate, Courtney, Lotta, Barb, Caroline and You, too!
