One Day. Today’s Ten

I’ve had some lovely followers emailing me lately asking me all kinds of questions about my blog and myself. I’m chuffed that you want to get to know me so I thought I’d introduce a new post where I share some tidbits of information about myself that you probably, in fact definitely, wouldn’t know (unless you’re a creepy stalker). Here’s today’s ten.

1. What is your first memory in life?
I was about 3 years old and playing in the bath. I distinctly remember discovering that if I let my arms and legs go floppy they would float to the surface. Amazing. This was quite an epiphany for a 3 year-old. I also remember how scratchy that bath tub was.
2. What has been the best vacation you have ever been on and what vacation are you looking forward to in the future?
New York, New York, New York. I’ve been lucky enough to visit that amazing city twice and have had the time of my life both times. It truly is the most incredible place in the world. If you’ve been you’ll know what I’m talking about and if you haven’t then what are you waiting for, book a flight now! I can’t wait to live there some day.
3.  Coffee yay or nay?
Not really a fan of coffee. I know, I know. Weirdo right? But I worked as a barista for 2 years and I think smelling it everday has just turned me off, so now it makes me feel sick.
4. Flowers or chocolate?
As much as I love chocolate I think if it’s a gift then I’d have to say flowers. There’s something so touching about receiving a bunch.
5. What is your normal bedtime and wake up time?
I’ve always been a night owl so having a job that starts at 8.30 hasn’t exactly complimented my routine but I think I’ve found my ideal times now. I aim to be asleep by 11.30 (this is often hindered by a fantastic book I can’t put down!) and awake by 7.30. Have to get your 8-hours beauty sleep!
6. When going out, do you wear your hair up in a pony tail or down?
I go through phases with this. Up, down, up down. Of late (I’ll admit this most recent phase has lasted for 3 years!!) I wear my hair up in a top knot or bun. Probably about time I change it up again so I’ll say down!
7. Favorite form of exercise?
I have a funny relationship with exercise, although it’s probably the same one as the majority of the population. I go through phases. There will be 2-months of extreme exercise and then nothing for a while. If I had to choose my favourites I’d definitely say pilates, yoga, netball and tennis. Oh and dancing, does that count?
8. Favorite place to shop?
New York!? But if we’re talking in Australia you can’t go past Melbourne. In terms of actual stores I like Sportsgirl, Kookai, Myer, David Jones and Forever New. But honestly my clothes are from so many places I can’t say I have a favourite.
9. Do you have a favourite cuisine to eat when dining out? What is it?
Italian! Pizza and pasta. Oh and some seafood!
10. Favourite season?
That’s a tricky one as it depends on where in the world I am. I love summer but here at home it often rains so winter is kind of my summer as the temperature is always in the twenties. I love winter in New York because it means snow, coats and ice-skating in central park. Autumn is lovely in Melbourne, to see the leaves falling from the trees and Springtime is always beautiful because it means flowers! In other words I can’t choose!
