As I sit here in my back yard, under the sun, I think of what I should post next on my blog. I have so many ideas but one sticks in my mind, people don’t even know me!! So I do a little google search and  research some get to know me questions. If you’re interested in getting to know me, then keep on reading!!

2. WHERE DO YOU CURRENTLY LIVE?

Sydney, Australia

3. WHO IS YOUR FIRST FRIEND?

Definitely my cousin Laurie, we are a year apart in age and grew up on the same street. We were so close, we would tell everyone we met that we were sisters. Me and Laurie have found that we had similar journeys throughout life at pretty much the same time. This bonded us even more. I would say, what we bond over the most is our love for spirituality and living a life in a state of high vibration, always striving to better ourselves and the world around us by living mindfully, oh! and some crystal collecting along the way!! We’re still sisters and besties til today and I love her sooo much!

  1. I love your taste in music. I am only slightly older than you so we listened to and watched a lot of the same things. Great list! Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with us!

  2. Oh wow! This is very interesting… I did not know that people would spray perfume in their hair. Does it not cause your hair to break? I visited Greece a few years ago and it was awesome, especially their 365 different salads and I love aubergines as well. Delicious!

  3. This list is very interesting. I’m not sure I would be that open about myself for everyone who happened to stop by to get a glimpse into what I’m like though. I guess I’m too private a person.

  4. It’s nice to get to know the blogger behind the articles. I know how it is to be a long time fan of a band, and it’s so amazing when you get to see them in concert.
