The Liebster Award

I was tagged  by two of my friends for The Liebster Award, thank you Tessa & Claire!
Basically I have to answer 10 questions about myself and then tag 10 other blogs.

I thought I would combine all of my answers in one post :)
Questions from Tessa

1.If you were given an extra hour in the day to do what you wanted with what would you do?
Absolutely nothing! Revel in the luxury and sit down, flick through some magazines, call a friend etc.

2.Have you changed much in the last 5 years and if so how and why?
Definitely. I only surround myself with true friends and people who I like spending time with rather than spread myself thin trying to fit in everyone. I put myself and my family first.

3.What is the best thing you have ever bought?
Our house, it was the start of our dream life together, having babies and it is our favourite place to be.

4.What is your favourite animal and why?
A monkey, there is something so cute and cheeky about them. 
They're my favourites at the zoo.

5.If you could start your career all over again would you change it?
No, as I met Simon at work (we worked at The Renaissance Hotel together) he was my supervisor. I'm happy with how things have panned out.

6.Do you have a mantra/affirmation/saying? What is it or what are they?
I love getting inspired by various quotes I see and I love popping up ones on my lightbox. My favourite at the moment is "Good vibes only" or "The grass is greener where you water it"

7.Which restaurant would you most like to dine at – anywhere in the world?
No particular restaurant but I would love to go back to Paris. Steak and frites anywhere with a glass of champagne would be perfect!

8.Name one luxury item you would love to own?
A private jet, flying with the kids would be a breeze ;)

9.Flowers for life or Chocolate?
Oooh a toughie but I'll go with flowers. Much healthier for me.

10.What 4 words would your best mate use to describe you?
Kind, fun, trustworthy, loyal

Questions from Claire

1. Favourite drink?
Water is always my first choice every day (ice cold not from the tap!) but I also love iced coffee, champagne, vodka lime and soda or a diet coke. Depending on the occasion.

2. Happiest moment?
Right now. Life is good! I have lots of happy memories and can't wait to make many more.

3. Song you never want to hear again?
I can't think of one at the moment, probably one of the kid's songs. Or Finn is always trying to get me to listen to the latest dub step. Some of them are ok but not all too my taste! 

4. Favourite part about blogging?
The community, so many lovely generous people. And the inspiration. I always love the creative buzz of blogs.
5. Most prized possession? (not family members or pets or friends!)
My photos. I still have my old photo albums has well as thousands on my hard drive. I would be devastated if I lost them. 

6. If you could pick a dream job, what would yours be?
Travel writer/blogger. Travelling the world, taking photos, recommending luxury hotels and resorts, dining at the best restaurants. Sounds like a dream! Of course I would have to take my family with me as I'd get homesick.

7. Signature scent?
I love sweet scents like vanilla. One of my favourite day time perfumes is MOR Marshmallow. I also choose vanilla and caramel scents for my candles. Although I will pop on a spritz of Chanel No.5 for a date night.

8. Ocean or mountains?
Ocean always. The cure for everything is salt water.

9. Dream holiday destination?
I really want to go back to Paris as I only had 3 days there 15 years ago. I want to take the time to wander the streets. I also want to plan a family trip in the next year or so to L.A. We want to take the boys to Disneyland. The only thing stopping us is the killer flight!

10. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Fulfilled, happy, loved.

  2. Hi Simone
    Thanks so much for asking me to play along, I'd love to. I can relate to No. 3. I too have to listen to dub step in the car and laughed when I read this. I agree some of it's OK but most gives me a headache (showing my age). Love all your other answers too. Yvette xo

  3. Awesome. Such a fun way to get to know each other better. Thanks for playing along. I loved reading your answers.
