Ok, so first 11 random facts about my self... 
(I've already posted some on my first award here)

1-I'm an english girl but I love eating snails!
It is cooked OK! Yummy snail in spicy sauce!
2- I get sick when I eat chocolate

3- When I was 14 I brought a scooter. I kept driving it until I was 23 (even though I had a car)

4- I hate the way my nose looks ever since I broke it (2 times). I often photoshop it on photos.

5- I studied 'Wines&Spirits' at uni. I had a lot of fun creating new products!
37,5 one of our creations
6- A couple of years ago I spent new years eve in Marrakech. I drunk I at 6am decided that it would be fun to sleep on the roof. I woke up with a sunburnt face.

7- Around where I live there are fields and fields of c*nn*bis. I don't smoke the stuff but I like the way the plant smells.

8- When I was 5 I got bitten by my neighbors pot-belly-pig. It made a hole in my tights! Now I am weary of pigs even though I find them cute !

9- Up until a couple of months ago I was still using my nokia 3310 that I brought in 1999. It died (well wasn't exactly dead! Just started acting very strange! See video below!), so I brought a smartphone (and I don't know how to use half of the things it can do)

10- I lived in a car on car parks for 5 months while touring around Australia (small white jeep is mine)

11- I love my dog, but at the moment I'm real mad with him! He stole one of my jumpers off the washing line and chewed it to bits!!! Evil puppy!


Noor's questions:

1- What do you prefer? Tumblr or Twitter?
I've only just signed up on twitter! Don't have Tumblr! I'm not up to date on the social network any more. Strange how things turn out. I was the first kid in school to get internet (the browser was netscape at the time and I had an aol address). I was also the first of my friends to get Facebook. Then I got lost!

2- What's your favorite fragrance?
Fave perfume is Black XS!

3- If you want to dwell in any city of the world, which city that could be?
I love the city I actually live in : Tangier. Otherwise Perth (Australia).

4- Who's your favorite singer/band?
Hard question! I like all sorts of music! At the moment I really like listening to noa & the whale.

5- Any celeb role model?
Not really. Lindsay Stirling for violin playing.

6- High heels or sneakers?
A bit of both! I mainly wear sneakers because they're so comfortable, but I like wearing heels when I go out in the evening with friends.

7- If you get a chance to be starred in a movie, who would be your co-star?
Will Ferrel, I think I'd have a good laugh!

8- What's your biggest passion?
Off road driving. I hope to turn this passion of mine into something useful (humanitarian races in Morocco)

9- What's your biggest fear?
Becoming paralyzed (from the head down). I had a bad fall when I was 14 and broke my neck. I still can't feel my right side properly (it's getting better, I used to be able to put my hand in boiling water and not feel a thing, rather dangerous)

10- Your favorite brand?
Don't really have a fave brand. Lately I've been liking Guess stuff clothes wise.

11- Most important person of your life?
It's impossible to name only one! My sister, Mandy, means the world to me. We've both been through hard times and understand each other. 
My little sister and I a long time ago!
My boyfriend Franck, with whom I've been with for more than 5 years. He also has helped me though hard times, sometimes I wonder what kind of person I would have become without him. My Dad, a smart old timer! I respect him in many ways. And of course some friends who I know I can always count on.


Wiccana's questions:

1- What is your fave country?
I haven't visited many countries! I love Morocco where I have been living for 2 years. I also really like Australia and want to go back there some day. 

2- Your fave season of the year?
Summer! I love the heat and sun!

3- Any wishes for next year to come?
Buy a house, win a 4x4 race and that everyone I know stays in safe and in good health.

4- Fave actor and Actress (if you have one)?
None in peculiar. But I do like how Johnny Deep acts ;)

5- Do you collect some kind of stuff?
I used to collect loads of stuff! Stamps when I was a kid, then dragon figurines... Now I just collect certain souvenirs I bring back from my travels.

6- Fave color?

7- Fave game when you were a child?
Snakes and ladders when I was really little! And that game when you had to pull teeth out of a crocodile's mouth and it would snap on your fingers if you pulled the wrong one! I also had a strange game of counting car colors when we were on the road (lots of long drives down to France). Later I got my first playstation and got hooked on Tomb raider and Final fantasy.

8- A place to go on holiday?
2 places : Iceland and Vietnam.

9- Your best childhood memory?
Holidays in France.

10- Fave book?
I don't really read much nowadays. I really enjoyed the Lord of the Rings that I read ages ago (way before the movies came out)

11- Fave movie?
There are too many to choose from!

Here's my answer to Sallamari's (from challenge.

The naked truth. 

The challenge is to post a pic of yourself with no makeup and no photoshopping.
I think it's a great idea. People always post pictures of themselves looking glamourous and perfect. I'm often not wearing makeup on my outdoor activity photos (but there aren't may close ups of my face)
 So here's one! No makeup at all. Just me like I look most days actually! (Posing with my evil sweatshirt eater puppy!)
I would love to see more bloggers take up this challenge! 
'Real faces for real people'

Take care!
