Sweet Maria from Denne side op (this side up) has sent me this award and challenge (thank you Maria) and I have translated it to English for you readers:

Why did you start blogging? First of all I love the concept of sharing ideas. I am a firm believer in “energy-flow”, and to allow your ideas to be passed on is a way to avoid “idea-clutter”. -Don´t know if that makes any sense?

 Which blogs do you read? Many but every day I check out: Julia Lahme a Danish blogger who writes about different issues in her life as being a mother and a carreerwoman, and she shares many nice finds. Brinja is also a favourite, she takes beautiful pictures and shares her creative ideas, I wrote about her here. Minimega is also great, she is a graphic designer from Denmark and has a really good eye for new cute things. Missemai is very girly and cute they also have a cute webshop. And La Graphic Design blog for paperlovers.

Favourite make-up brand? Shisheido I love the colours and their style.

Favourite clothing brand?  Replay, Sonia Rykiel, Fornarina and Tsumori Chisato -they are all playful, colorful and optimistic.

Your must-have make-up product? Great Lash Mascara by Maybelline is a classic I have used it for years and Touche Éclat from YSL -it is expensive but worth it!

Your favourite colour? Oh, do I have to choose? Raspberry, Mint, Chalk White, Powder Pink, Neon and everything with glitter…

Perfume? Paul Smith perfume Women and Oscar de la Renta Instrusion are both light and understated.

Favourite movie? Belle de Jour  from 1967  starring Catherine Deneuve the style, the story and the men: the classic good guy / bad boy story which I think most women can relate to…

Which country would you like to visit and why? Japan is my number one for its architecture, gardens, Kawaii and art.

What are you looking forward to the most in the nearest future? Summer! We have had a really cold winter and I can´t wait to go swimming in salty waters.

I am passing this award and challenge on to Brinja and Mette Helena from Retro Villa °☆ ‧°‧°☆∴° ☆
