Q & A Time | Blue Sky Tag

I originally had a completely different post planned for today but then the lovely Jessica at Diary of a Toronto Girl nominated me for the Blue Sky Tag so of course I decided to do that instead. Thank you for tagging me Jessica!

RULES: The blogger that has been tagged must:

  1. Answer the eleven questions asked by the tagger
  2. Nominate eleven other bloggers
  3. Ask eleven questions for the newly tagged to answer. 
Here we go: 
  1. What is your most prized possession right now? This is a hard one but it would have to either be my Macbook Pro or my Canon T5 camera. The reason is because I worked so hard to get both of these items and I held off getting a DSLR camera especially until I felt I was skilled enough with a cheaper point and shoot. I had to really develop my skills and my budgeting to get them and they are the ultimate workhorses of my blogging toolkit. 
  2. If you could change one thing about Instagram, what would it be? This is such a loaded question because there are quite a few things I would change but if I really had to narrow it down, I would say that I really miss the old Instagram where there was no algorithm and everything everyone posted was there in the order it was posted. 
  3. Where do you draw your inspiration from? I am inspired by the working woman's lifestyle and the DC working woman in particular. I try to showcase outfits that I wear every day and what I see other women wearing regularly with maybe a little bit more pizzazz. 
  4. What would you describe your personal style as? "Classic with a touch of whimsy." :]
  5. What was the first social media account you ever had? This is quite embarrassing but I had a Xanga account in middle school where I would write about my angsty feelings and complain about my teachers who wouldn't round up my grades. It was riveting. It's gone now (thankfully) but it still makes me cringe to think about it.
  6. If you could retire anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? I've had this conversation with Brian quite a few times. I think I would go for Hawaii - it's like Florida without the alligators and the crazy hot/humid weather. 
  7. Where do you usually do your blogging-related work? So I purposely purchased a white desk that would serve as a double whammy - comfy work desk while also being a perfect setting for flatlay photography. I basically never sit there to work, I crawl onto my couch with the TV on and a bag of chips at my side and that's where I do all my blog work. I'm so lazy.
  8. What is the last song you listened to? Titanium by Sia while I was running on the treadmill (I have to burn off that junk food from the couch somehow). 
  9. Who are the top five people in your "suggested" list when you search on Instagram?
    Iliana from @sophisticatedfashionista
    Brian from @bcsobscuredc
    Jessica from @jessicailam
    Nicole from @thelifewithnicole
    Carrie and Shannon from @youmedcblog
  10. What beauty products have you repurchased the most? Probably my Cetaphil face cleanser. I've been using it since 2013. 
  11. What is your favorite quote of all time? "There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self" -- Ernest Hemingway
I nominate: 
My Questions: 
  1. How long have you been blogging?
  2. How did you start blogging?
  3. What is your dream job?
  4. What is a bad habit you can't seem to break?
  5. Who's the last person you texted? What was the message (if it's not too scandalous ;)
  6. What's one item on your bucket list?
  7. What is the last book you read and how did you like it?
  8. What is your love language?
  9. If you could have a completely different career from the one you have now, what would it be?
  10. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
  11. How many languages do you speak?
