Questions & Answers

1:01 AM

A fellow fashion-blogger at Beautifully Invisible last week tagged me for a Questions & Answers session. 

Her blog has a Daily Dose of Inspiration, controversies in the fashion world, update on upcoming trends ...and more ... with a dash of her witty comments! If you haven't check it out yet, what are you waiting for? Rushhhh now! Here, Click it!


Question - If you weren't blogging about fashion, what would you be blogging about instead?
Answer - I recently started blogging about fashion, until last year the blog was mostly about fitness, health and my random ramblings. Even now, it varies from food, fitness, films, etc. but fashion has sort of become one of the main focuses purely due to its popularity and passion!


Question - Who was your most embarrassing crush?
Answer - I have thought about this really hard, but I cannot think of any embarrassing crushes. I have had a lifetime crush on Salman Khan and a high-school crush on Hrithik Roshan [Indian Actors] which doesn't seem to fizzle off with time ... 


Question - If you were stranded on a desert island and allowed one "luxury' from home, what would you bring with you and why?

Answer - If I ever had a premonition that I am going to be stranded on an island and could take something with me I would take a couple of pens and notebooks [in case the ink finishes and I am there for like really 'forever']. In real life I am so distracted and this blogging really sucks the time out of my life, so I am guessing a stranded island is what it will take for me to write a book!


Question
 - The last book you read was...

Answer - This is so embarrassing! The last book I read was way back in March this year and it was A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini [Had even done a review on it! Book Review - A Thousand Splendid Suns]


Question
 - If you could live in a different era, which one would you choose, and why?

Answer - I would like to live in the period of Industrial Revolution. Seems like a period full of inventions, discoveries, new money, transition in fashion, great literature, American Dream ... phew! I can go on and on and on ...


Question
 - Where is your favorite place to shop and why?

Answer - Covent Garden, London [U.K.] I just like the vibe around there and I always-always-without-fail find stuff there which is so unique that even years later people ask me, "Where'd you get that?!?"


Question
 - Gold or silver jewelry?

Answer - If you had asked me this a couple of years back I would have said, Silver Jewelry without-a-doubt. But now I kinda like a certain type of gold jewelry. Not the super-shiny-really-yellow-types but the antique-y-rustic-gold types? Yeah, bring it on!


Question
 - Your favorite drink is...

Answer - You know, I want to name some unheard-of-exotic-mouth-watering-drink but it's really a simple freshly squeezed lemonade in summers and a hot chocolate in winter. Boring, eh?

  4. Ahh Hrithik is a really good looking guy! There is nothing wrong with lemonade or hot chocolate - they are among my favorites too.

    I lived in Covent Garden when I was in London! I had only started discovering the cool vintage and jewelry stores as we were leaving :( But I did get lots of cool Jimmy Choo for H&M in that H&M!

  11. Love your answers! OK I'll answer some of these here because I never ever get around to posting about them and I don't like to ignore things like this :)

    1. fun-loving {one word?} :)

    2. so embarrassed to say but I'll have to go with Real Housewives...i need some mindless tv at night to help me unwind :)

    3. now that's a hard one! i love so many...it's one of my obsessions. I guess I'd choose British or Italian Vogue if I have to pick just one.

    4. another tough one...i think i'm going to go with Olivia Palermo {celebrity?} just for her wardrobe.

    5. somewhat. i have some family members in politics so i try to not get too weighed down by it.

    6. an hour and 1/2 or an hour an 45. far too long!

    7. depends on the situation :)

    8. best idea ever!

    9. as many as i can. i get bored easily and yearn for travel.

    10. too many honestly. i love it but it's kind of taking over my life. but i can't break away! :)

    Have a great Monday, sweetie! xoxo

  14. Thanks so much for answering my little questions, T :) Loved reading all of your answers.

    I agree it would be interesting to have lived during the Industrial Revolution.

    I like your desert island answer - that would be a perfect opportunity to write a book. Hopefully someone would find you and publish it one day!

    I just started to read The Kite Runner and plan to read A Thousand Splendid Suns after that one.

    I admit I am not familiar with the actors you crushed on, but OMG, Hrithik Roshan is gorgeous!

    Here are quick answers to your questions:
    1. Complicated
    2. Mad Men AND Dexter AND True Blood. because they are all fabulous.
    3. I don't have a favorite - I like them all for different reasons.
    4. I don't think i would exchange my life with a celebrity. I'd rather live my own life than someone elses. Although being Angelina Jolie (married to Brad Pitt) for a day would be nice.
    5. Yes I do - I have to, it impacts my life and my job!
    6. Depends. I can be out the door in 10 minutes i have to, but it can take an hour. Depends on whether i am getting ready for something special.
    7. Both - sometimes the quietest people are also the naughtiest.
    8. The only thing better than a 3 day weekend is a 4 day weekend.
    9. 2 or 3. Varies from year to year.
    10. Oh lord, too many.
