A nice addition to my week

Ashley over at Until the Stars Align gave me this nice award.  I wanted to answer the 10 questions that came along with it.  Most of my posts are less about me and more about where I go and what I find, so this will be new for me.

The 10 Questions:

1. Why did you create this blog?
I bought a new camera in 2010 and wanted somewhere to put all my photo attempts.  Also, I like to travel and share what I see with friends and family.  I have also added some things along the way, like recipes I have tried, crafts I have made, and just recently books I have read.
2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
So many kinds!  I like to learn from photography blogs and really, the art out there is amazing.  I read cooking, crochet and paper crafting blogs to find a couple new things to try now and again. (BTW, if anyone has good links for beginner crochet ideas, feel free to leave them in the comments).  And I read Mommy blogs (and adoption blogs) because I love to see every day celebrated through children.

3. Favorite make-up brand?
Bare Minerals for most; Cover Girl for lipstick. 

4. Favorite clothing brand?
Chicos - it's a women's boutique-like chain.  They have really good travel clothing.  Packs well, washes well, wears like a dream and isn't heavy (so I have more bag weight available for the trip back and for the stuff I buy on holiday).

5. Indispensable makeup product?
Cover Girl outlast lipstick.  Lasts for hours - which is good because I only want to do it once a day if I can get away with it.

6. Favorite color?
This depends on the day and mood I am in.  I  can usually narrow it to red - for vibrant days and sage green for calm days.

7. Favorite perfume?
In the real world, a few different ones from Bath and Body.  If I were looking at a gift, I wouldn't turn down Chanel.

8. Favorite film(s)?
Miracle on 34th Street and Sound of Music.

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I am looking forward to Norway and Iceland down the road.  Switzerland and Japan make the list too.  I love to learn other cultures and try to blend in.  Clearly, I do it better in some than others.  I remember when I was in Spain long enough to dream in Spanish.  It was so surreal to think in a second language, not just translate continuously in my head.

10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Well, considering how little I function in the morning, I have probably done both at one time or another.  I suppose mascara would be less obvious.  
Hope you enjoy this cute list.  Thanks again to Ashley!

My all-time fav movie is the Sound of Music. I cried in Salzburg all through the tour.
