I forgot some item,s at home the other day so the only things left are Neve cosmetics flatbuki brush, Neve cosmetics mineral blush Bombay and KIKO Ultra Glossy Stylo 807 lipstick.

I was before my kids were born, now I’m always careful and plan every step. I don’t wanna risk their or my safety :P

6. On a scale of 1-10 how happy would you say you are?
That depends on a day :D I am struggling staying happy cause I get stressed easily and not having my parents, my brothers, my friends here makes everything harder. I can say from 1-10 how hard am I trying to be happy for what I have and that would be 8 =)
7. Do you find yourself attractive?

I’ve had dreams that told me what was gonna happen but they never told me to do something.
10. Have you ever got sweet revenge on anyone?
No, I’m not the type that plans a revenge on someone. I can dream about it but I never go out and do it for real.
1- Would you rather live without your foundations, powders, bronzers, concealers OR without your eye stuff like eyeliners mascaras and eye shadows ?
That’s a tricky one. If my skin would be perfect all the time I would choose to be without face stuff. I guess if I take good care of my skin I can get rid of foundations and company and just use eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow.
2- What is your biggest fear ?
A tsunami! I dreamed one when I was 8 or 9, when I didn’t even know yet what they were and since then I have had many dreams about tsunamis coming my way. I’m not a very good swimmer so that’s why I am so afraid of it.
3- Describe your style in 1 word.
4- Name a book that inspired or changed your life and way of thinking. If you’re not a bookworm like me just mention me a movie.
I have already mentioned this book in some of my posts and it’s the Teaching of Survival by Luule Viilma. It teaches how to heal ourselves with our thoughts and how all health and mental problems come from wrong thinking and so do also situations and other problems.
5- After being a blogger for a while, would you think of starting a youtube channel and making videos ?
I already had a youtube channel before this blog, but I rarely do any videos. Making videos is hard work and takes a lot of time. Check out my channel http://www.youtube.com/user/blumammu
6- To you, what would be the perfect plan for your birthday ?
A nice barbeque with my family in my fathers backyard.
7- Name a major insecurity you have.
Only one? I don’t have one bigger then others, they are all the same: my nose, my feet, my stretchmarks, my belly button…
8- How much have you been blogging/ when did you start ?
I have been bloggin for 2 and half years. My first blog was in estonian, I created it for my friends and family to let them, know about my life in Italy. Then I created other two blogs: in english and italian and they were beautyblogs. Then one day I just felt I wasn’t doing enough for my blogs and I felt under pressure cause I didn’t blog often enough so I just closed them but after few months I started this blog, cause I missed blogging and new friends I had made. Only this time I decided to make it more easy to myself and keep just one blog but to write in english and italian.
9- What is the best advice you could give for a blogger that’s still new ( been here less than a year)
I don’t feel ready to give out advice just yet, but for me a very important part of beauty and fashion blog are the photos. It’s important to have good quality photos, it really disturbs me if me if my photos come out bad and I might just go over a blog without following it if the photos aren’t very good even when the content is good, first impression counts!
10- If you could have 3 wishes that will change your life forever, what would they be ?
1. I wish I could live in Estonia with my husband and kids without having to worry about not finding a job there and being without money 2. I’d wish my children to be always truly happy 3. I’d wish my mom to be ok (she has parkinson)
Patricia gives me the impression of a strong and indipendant woman, who won’t let anything or anyone to get on her way to reach her goals. Check out her blog for great beauty DIY and makeup! Thank you for nominating me dear!
One: Who do you turn to for inspiration and motivation?
Pinterest! :D If my bff from Estonia would be here I’d turn to her, but right now I only got internet :)
Two: What is your favorite beauty quote?
“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief tha she is beautiful”
Four: What is your current addiction?
Beauty related? I don’t have one. But I am addicted to Pinterest, why didn’t I discover it sooner!!?? I am so much better as housewife now! :D
Five: What is the most expensive piece of clothing that you own?
I don’t like buying expensive things even when I do have the money., So there probably isn’t anything over €50
Six: What does the word ‘beauty’ mean to you?
Might sound a clichè but beauty is when a woman feels comfortable in her skin, I feel beautiful when I am simple, beauty is the places we know and have fallen for even if everyone does not see it, kindness and love towards other people are beautiful.
Seven: What got you started on blogger-sphere?
As I said answering another question before I started with estonian blog to keep my family and friends updated, then after always watching beauty gurus on youtube I thought I should give beauty blogging a try =)
Eight: Which is the most beautiful destination for a honeymoon, according to you?
I really don’t know. I never think about weddings or honeymoons :D Somewhere cosy, not too grouded and a quiet place.
Nine: What is your favorite movie dialogue of all time?
Gosh, I have seen so many films that I can’t remember even one dialogue! But I remember crying my eyes at the ends of the Bride Wars. I googled it and it’s actually a monologue but it’ll do :D
“Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what; maybe you’ll find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding, but there is also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, the one person who knows you, sometimes better than you know yourself, is the same person who’s been standing beside you all along.”
Ten: What is your biggest accomplishment?
I think that it’s still to come =) But I am proud of myself improving myself as a person every day, one small step at the time, one challenge at the time. Right now this is my biggest accomplishment – not giving up on myself!
One more thanks to all the pretty ladies for nominating me, it means a lot!
PS! I’m sorry if there are any mistakes in grammar, I really don’t feeling like reading it all again (I’m kinda pissed at my mother-in-law at the moment….:S) So if you find any just let me know and don’t be cruel :D
PS!PS! I’m not gonna nominate anyone right now cause I have done these awards a few times already and I just don’t know who to nominate anymore. And you ALL deserve an award!!!
