The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award!

Thank you sooo much to the lovely Constance from Conk's Canister for nominating us for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Check out her beautiful blog and say hi for us!

These are the questions Constance gave us to answer:

1. What is your favourite song/band at the moment?

Kimmy: My favourite song at the moment is Bright by Echosmith, they're a super talented band and this song is really beautiful. Makes me smile!

Ayah: Fav song atm: I'm good - The Mowgli's & I wana get better- bleachers & Talk- Kodaline
Fav music video: Bad blood- Taylor Swift

2. What is your favourite kind of blog post to write?

Kimmy: I love any blog post with loooads of photos! Anything that is fun to write, maybe a little bit quirky or unique. I love this post: Windswept: Spring Lookbook 2015

Ayah: Windswept and the mac review are defo my favorite ones!

3. What is the story of your first kiss?

Kimmy: London Waterloo train station. It was short and sweet. 'nuff said.

Ayah: I had my first Hershey's kiss when I was 5 and omg it was amazing!

4. Your biggest regret and proudest moment?

Kimmy: I reeeaally regret on giving up so much extra-curricular stuff when I was younger, like dancing or martial arts or music- I used to get scared and so I'd give it up, I just wish I'd pushed through that! My proudest moment was probably getting onto my dream course at my favourite University.

Ayah: Biggest regret-~not learning how to cook! ( I'm dying at uni..) The most delicious thing I could do is literally a nutella sandwhich......
Proudest moment~ Getting into uni, living on my own in another country, having a lot of my friends/fam ask me to do their makeup/hair-does, performing (dancing/singing) in front of a large audience, BUT the proudest moment ever is when I did the BEST NUTELLA sandwhich anyone could've ever tried.. (like FO REAL)

5. What is the one make-up product you can't stop buying?

Kimmy: I love a bright, sparkly, shiney nail varnish.

Ayah: Mac studio fix foundation ( I actually CAN'T live without it) BUT i'm still looking for the perfect lipstick! HELP ME?!

6. What is your clothing staple for summer?

Kimmy: You either love 'em or you hate 'em. But I have to admit I'm quite the fan of flip flops when camping or just wandering around the village, They're so cheap, they're comfy and they're perfect to shove on when you're running after the ice cream van!

Ayah: A short pastel colored summer dress! So obsessed with it..

7. What do you do to find inspiration?

Kimmy: I like to go on a walk or a run through the countryside, listening to some music and just step away from the hectic nature of life! It gives me a chance to breathe and really think things through- and come up with new ideas! #DEEP

Ayah: Dancing ballet, modern, hip hop, and contemporary are definitely one of the main inspiration factors for me. Also singing and acting in films make feel very adventurous and in the zone.

8. What do you do during "that time of the month" to make yourself feel better?

Kimmy: CHOCOLATE. Dark chocolate or a high cocoa bar can actually give you that happy feeling! Science! Aside from that it's paracetamol, a hot water bottle and a good film with loved ones.

Ayah: Eat a lot (and i mean A LOT) of ice cream! and ofcourse, chilling with my 2 year-old nephew and 2 months old niece are two of my fav thingss that make me so happy!

9. Do a short and sweet "What's in my bag"?

Kimmy: Notebook, 5 pens of assorted styles, patterns and colours, a tablet for lectures, earphones, keys, purse, tissues, a random crayon, jewellery I took off once and forgot to take out my bag, more tissues, medicine, more pens, a variety of snacky food, loose change that I can never be bothered to put in my purse, my diary, lipbalm, about 10,000 receipts, a pocket mirror and a charm my sister made for me.

Ayah: Everything you can imagine is in my bag.. EVEN a bag of pringles hehee xxx
