I was tagged by the lovely Nicole from Princess Noo to do this tag. I hope you guys enjoy getting to know me a bit better!
♥ 1. What are you wearing?
My super trendy Woolworths pajamas (I work from home so on some days I just work in my PJs).
♥ 2. Ever been in love?
♥ 3. Ever had a terrible breakup?
Aren’t all breakups terrible at the time? To be honest, I haven’t had a whole lot of boyfriends – Neal was actually my first serious boyfriend and we only started going out when I was 26 (yes, I am a late bloomer).
♥ 4. How tall are you?
I only know my height in meters – 1,82m.
♥ 5. How much do you weigh?
A lady never reveals her weight…or is it age? I forget…
♥ 6. Any tattoos?
No, I have played around with the idea but haven’t actually decided whether I want to get one. If I do get one, it will be something like this:
♥ 7. Any piercings?
I have ear piercings & a belly button piercing. I used to have a tragus ring and a nose ring but that didn’t last very long – haha!
♥ 8. OTP? (One True Pairing)
Gin & Tonic? Wimpy Cheese burger & chips?
♥ 9. Favourite show?
I can’t only choose one, but at the moment: The Walking Dead, The Blacklist, True Detective, Elementary & The Following.
♥ 10. Favourite bands?
30 Seconds To Mars & Queen (there are obviously others but these are the first 2 that came to mind).
♥ 11. Something you miss?
Visiting my granny.
♥ 12. Favourite song?
Barcelona by Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé – gives me goosebumps every single time!
♥ 13. How old are you?
31 – meh…
♥ 14. Zodiac sign?
I’m an Aquarius.
♥ 15. Quality you look for in a partner?
A kind soul.
♥ 16. Favourite Quote?
“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
♥ 17. Favourite actor?
Anthony Hopkins & Kevin Spacey (can’t choose – sorry).
♥ 18. Favourite color?
Come now…obviously PINK.
♥ 19. Loud music or soft?
If it’s music I play – LOUD; if it’s music someone else plays and it kinda sucks – very, very soft. I’m not inconsiderate, though, so I usually listen to my music using my headphones.
♥ 20. Where do you go when you’re sad?
Shopping or I watch an episode of my favourite series.
♥ 21. How long does it take you to shower?
Depends if I wash my hair, shave, use a scrub and / or use my in-shower body moisturiser – probably between 15 and 20 minutes.
♥ 22. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
If I’m doing my hair (curling / blow drying) & makeup, probably over an hour. I have been known to take up to 2 hours – eeeek!
♥ 23. Ever been in a physical fight?
Only with my brother when I was waaaaay younger (but I never started it).
♥ 24. Turn on?
Sense of humour, intelligence & a kind soul.
♥ 25. Turn off?
Bad hygiene & narrow-mindedness.
♥ 26. The reason I started a blog?
I always adored reading reviews or looking at blog posts that were beautiful (in terms of photos and writing), and that motivated me to create something that I could be proud of. I wanted to share my knowledge & experiences with anyone who would take the time to read my posts.
♥ 27. Fears?
The ocean, death, lightning & bats (in that order).
♥ 28. Last thing that made you cry?
♥ 29. Last time you said you loved someone?
Last night about 2 seconds before I fell asleep.
♥ 30. Meaning behind your blog name?
Pink is my favourite colour and peonies are my absolute favourite flowers. Peonies are a scarce commodity in South Africa. Peonies were going to be the main flowers used in our wedding flower arrangements & my bridal bouquet back in February 2012 – our wedding florist was going to import them from Europe. Unfortunately the 2011/2012 Winter in Europe was so cold that no peonies were available for import. I found this out two weeks before our wedding… Needless to say I was SUPER freaked out – finding out the wedding flowers you had dreamed about for so long were not going to be part of your wedding is very stress-inducing to say the least. Anyway, we used what was available to us and in the end it was the perfect wedding. Anyway, so pink = favourite colour; and peonies = favourite flowers (and also a thorn in my side).
♥ 31. Last book you read?
‘The World’s Ten Most Evil Men’. No, I don’t have issues with men but I do like to read about serial killers & sociopaths.
♥ 32. The book you’re currently reading?
I recently started with ‘Murderous Men’ but I don’t have much time on my hands to read at the moment (it’s something I need to work on).
♥ 33. Last show you watched?
♥ 34. Last person you talked to?
Neal (my husband).
♥ 35. The relationship between you and the person you last texted?

Salad (no really, I love salad).

New York & Paris.
♥ 38. Last place you were?
On holiday? Sea Point (Cape Town).
♥ 39. Do you have a crush?
Yes, his name is Mr. Darcy (Pride & Prejudice). *blush*
♥ 40. Last time you kissed someone?
Last night. Neal kisses me on the cheek every morning because I’m usually still asleep when he leaves for work.
♥ 41. Last time you were insulted?
♥ 42. Favourite flavour of sweet?
Sour (like sherbet sweeties) or fiery cinnamon (like Fireballs).

I think they are SO cheesy…

No, I’m not a cheese ball.
♥ 49. Last time you hung out with anyone?
My aunt visited us last week, so I hung out with her. This past weekend was spent indoors sorting out blog stuff, so I mostly hung out with my furry children (Neal was in Sabie for the MTN National Mountain Bike Series).
