LauraLeia's Questions

1. Who or what inspired you to start your blog?
I was active in blogging back in 2008 on my personal blog and if particularly "Who" inspired me to start my beauty-focused blog would be my very own sister and Michelle Phan. "What" inspired me to blog is my love for cosmetics/fashion and sharing with anyone who wants to know :) 

2. What's your favourite 2013 memory?
My favourite 2013 memory would be my 3 months teaching practical stint. By going through the "internship", I think my calling has "half" confirmed my love for teaching and most importantly educating the young. But still I'm not sure why I still feel that there's more.. 

3. What's your craziest hair colour, or what colour would you like for your hair? ;)
I have never coloured my hair until very recently - two days before Christmas. Which is an EPIC fail because the colour didn't show much! Lol. I purchased Manic Panic Rock-It-Red and brought it to my regular hairdresser to help highlight my whole hair. Should have lightened my hair more before colouring. Wasted :( 

4. Currently listening to...
Anything Bieber-Free-Music. Technically whatever is played on BFM radio station. That's the only radio station I tune into. 

5. You're stranded on a deserted island. Name 3 outfits OR beauty products you'd bring. HAHAHA
Black Eyeliner
Red Lipstick 
Face Scrub 


6. What's your dream travel destination? 
Venice, before it sinks. 

7. Favourite nail colour?
Black, black and vampy red. 

8. Favourite blog(s)?
Can't recall any at the moment as haven't been following beauty blog as much as I want too. 

9. Tell me ONE resolution for 2014.

10. Food you DON'T like?
Cantonese-style noodles and shellfish.  

11. Coffee or tea?
COFFEE. 'enuf said :)
