{Pearls, Swines, Awards & Questions}

Hiya darlings!! Happy Friday...I hope you all are doing wonderfully and ready to let your hair down this weekend and have some fun!! May it be sunny and pleasant for you all. I got an award during the week from the stunning Ulla-Marie from 'Dude Looks Like a Lady', you should really check her blog out, she has amazing style, I always love what she's wearing!! She asked the questions, here are my answers:




♥ My Questions 

1. Who was your first love and how old were you?
 To be honest, my husband. I was a tomboy growing up, so boys didn't really interest me. When I did have a boyfriend, I wouldn't really say I was in love as they weren't so nice. When I met my husband - as we were friends first then boyfriend/girlfriend, he was the first one I fell in love with, I was 19 years old. 


2.What trait of other people annoys you?
 Gossips or rudeness.


3.The most beautiful person on earth?
 I pick 3 - My husband, My daughters Saffron & Noemie! They are my world :)


4. When you were a child, what did you think you would be as an adult?
Seriously, a super hero like Super Man or Wonder Woman, haha. 


5. If you could change one law in your country – what law?
Well, since I'm from America, but live in another country, I'll give one law from each place. In America, I would obviously change the gun laws, but to say something different, I would change it's law on marriage, so that all states allow every person to marry and have it be legal no matter if they are man/man or woman/woman. In the UK, I would change the fact that you have to have a TV license to have a TV in the house, haha!


6. Which is the best song ever?
Oh my, so hard. I have loads of favourite songs. I couldn't even possibly answer, I'd always have thousands to give, I listen to songs based on my emotions at the time.  But, I love 'Just Like Heaven', by The Cure.


7. Which actor is most overrated?
Jennifer Aniston...don't care for her acting what so ever. And she should have never won the award for best actress in Friends...Lisa Kudrow was the better actress!! She grates on my nerves instantly. Her acting is always the same. 

8. Favorite Artist?
Too many, but for this moment I will say Klimt or Arthur Hacker....both make me dream.


9. The world's most delicious perfume?
Again, this is so hard. I adore perfume and couldn't be without it. The most delicious to me would be something sweet, yet deep. dark, yet tantalising.  Something very in the middle of everything. I don't like anything too strong or too sweet. It has to be balanced. Dior Poison is wonderful. But, I'm still on the hunt for a new perfume at the moment. 


10. Have you been rude to anybody in the past month?
Hahaha. Not really. I did tell someone off for their lack of manners. I think if you bump into someone, it's only polite to apologise, even if you didn't mean to. You should acknowledge the person & make sure their ok. But, this person just walked past, so I told them off - in a polite way & that saying excuse me doesn't cost anything or take much time. The lady told me to just behave myself, hahahaha! I laughed for ages after!


11. A designer will make a dress for you - Who do you choose?
I'm going to be cheeky here & pick two designers. My favourite two - Dawn from Boudoir Queen & Ulyana Sergeenko - supremely amazing women!! They both perfectly sum up my idea of perfect attire. I adore them so much! (they will pop up in Wonder Woman posts in the future).




♥ Shop Love - Pearls & Swine 

also wanted to share today a shop that I've been over the moon for, for quite some time. The shop is called Pearls & Swine based in West Yorkshire, UK, you might remember some weeks ago in my list of latest wishes, I featured a shell fascinator that I wanted to wear while driving my car with the pearl covered steering wheel. Pearls & Swine was created by the ever gorgeous Bink in 2004, offering out of this world pop surreal Millinery, Bridal headwear, Ascot hats, Glitter Fascinators, Vintage Inspired Millinery, Bespoke headwear, half mask Fascinators & more. Bink also offers a bespoke service, so if you can dream it, it can pretty much be created! There is no way you will go out looking like anyone else & all ranges of styles and people are catered for, Bink has a marvellous imagination and talent for creating, I'm a huge fan of hats and fascinators, so I cannot recommend the shop enough, do check out the website as there is much more than what is below to dream over. 


Have a lovely weekend dolls!!

    Great head pieces.
    Off to Málaga again this weekend in search of the right house, and to celebrate our girls birthdays.They were born in the same week- 4 years apart.

  5. My answer to question one would be almost identical to yours. I love that. So sweet.

  6. Pearls & Swine makes such fun, whimsical pieces!

    Aww, thanks for the tidbit about your husband. It is so sweet that you met and fell in love back then!
    I would have done the same thing if someone pushed me. I actually found the lack of personal fascinating when I lived in London and in Asia. I know personal space is an American thing, but some people in certain cultures really don't mind just touching or pushing through you!
    Happy weekend dear!

    1. :))) Thank you. I don't mind people being around and close, but I think if you get shoved or anything like that, it's polite to see if they are ok and not just leave them. If it was the older lady that got knocked over, she would have most likely yelled at us. I think you just have to let it roll off your back sometimes. Happy weekend lovely xoxox

  12. These awards always reveal interesting things about us...I do agree with you about Jenifer A., to me she is also always the same character and that's really not acting... so cute that you and hubs hooked up at such young age:)

    I really like Pearls and Swine (and what a cool name).

  13. Headpieces always look so elegant with big curly hair, don't you agree? Great questions and answers. Very weird TV law in the UK (I'm in London today, by the way).

    1. Yes, I do agree :) It is a weird law for tvs. Enjoy London doll, such a great city!! x

  14. As I'm a romantic I love the fact that your husband was your first real love. THAT is romantic to me! :D ANd one of the laws that annoys me so much I just want to literary shake some sense into the people making those laws, is the one that prevents gay people to get married! Just thinking about it makes my blood pressure rise... So I'm not going to dig deeper into that subject here. Obviously you're on the same page as me in that question... :) Instead I'm going to check out the head pieces over at Pearls & Swine! :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

    1. :D He is indeed!!! I'm with you doll, I get irate talking about it. Even with those religious ones who point fingers. I'm a Christian & I find their behavior appalling towards gay people. I instantly get fired up, haha. Everyone deserves to be seen as an equal. We are indeed on the same page :) Yes, go wander over these beautiful head pieces...I have a list already of ones I need to save money for :)))) xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

  15. Loved your answers doll! This was a fun way to get to know you. :) Now I am curious about the designers you mentioned. Oh! And the hats....my fave is the last photo of the orchid and pearls. Dreamy! Thanks doll! Xo

  23. Kizzy are you serious? A TV license? For every TV that's in the house? What is the reasoning behind that? Ok, you are KILLING ME with these facinators! I so want the tutti frutti and mad hatter tea party one. They are so cool! Just liked them on FB and Twitter. Thanks for the introduction and enjoy your weekend.

  26. I enjoyed so much this interview! I'm totally with you about Jennifer Aniston btw. If you don't mind I'd like to suggest two perfumes you should try: Eternity by Calvin Klein and Paloma Picasso. I have the feeling you would fall for the second one. Another dainty doll's fragrance might be Jil Sander's Sensation. Your love story is so romantic, and I love your daughters name (I think you haven't mentioned Naomi before, while I remember Saffron). I wish you a great weekend: I'm having a short getaway at the lake with family and friends. Lots of love

  28. Yes! Jennifer Aniston is totally overrated. I don't think I've ever seen a movie with her in that I liked. Pearls & Swine has some amazing fascinators and hats. I love the floral one with the birds.

    1. Haha...agreed :) Haven't liked any of her movies. Ye, the floral with the birds is so gorgeous, adore that one. I hope your weekend was been bliss xx

  39. oh my gollies! Dreamtime dolly is my favorite. It's gorgeous and playful and whimsical all at the same time! :) I totally agree with you on changing marriage laws. We, as a society, have changed so much ever since the concept of marriage was first decided. That concept should chance with us as well. ALSO, tv licenses? What?
