I am new to the blogging world, so it was a very pleasant surprise to be nominated by the lovely The Peculiar Porter for the Real Neat Blog Award, her blog is one of the first ones I started following here and I love it! I was also nominated by Rachel from the Sea of Beauty, I have been following her every post and she always rocks it.
Thank you ladies!
First up The Peculiar Porter‘s questions:
What fashion piece could you not live without?
My skinny black jeans. It goes with everything, and I can wear to (almost) any occasion.
What would you be doing if you didn’t blog?
Writing! I have a screenplay project in the works.
Do you have a pet? If so post a picture and if not explain what pet you wish you had.
OH. I have FOUR pets. You can see a picture of Cookie and Lulu (puppies) here and I present you Kit and Kat. The four of them have brought so much love and joy to my family since we adopted them. They also sleep a lot – see picture below.
Why did you start your blog?
I felt the need to have an outlet for the things I am passionate about. I also love photography and fashion, and having worked in the fashion industry I wanted to explore these interests a bit further.
What is your favorite meal?
Rice and beans – I am Brazilian and I miss this meal every. single. day.
You won 50 million dollars what do you do with it?
Donate a third of it, put a third of it away in the bank, spend the other third on myself, friends and family.
Now to Rachel’s questions!
Who is your role model? Why?
My mother, because well, she is amazing.
What is one thing you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t?
Sewing. Several people in my family are great at it (like they designed and sewed their prom dress) and I think it’s fun.
Where is your favourite place you have ever lived?
New York!! NEEEEEW YORK!
What is your favourite lipstick colour?
A classic one, Rubi Woo by Mac. Works for everyone I swear.
If you could only use one beauty product for the rest of your life what would it be?
Lipstick!!! Which one? See above.
What never fails to make you smile?
My pets (also see picture above), they are the most loving puppies and kittens.
What shampoo do you always go back to?
Living Proof! I even wrote about them here! Their products save my hair from all of the heat and color I put on it.
What is something that is always in your purse?
Chapstick – I live in Boston where is always cold 😦
How did you choose the name of your blog?
My childhood nickname is Mila. The “said so” part comes from a joke between me and my mother.
Where is your favourite place to travel to?
That I have been, New York. That I have not been, Paris.
It was a lot of fun answering your questions ladies, thank you so much!
