Leibster Award Nomination : Teacher Types

September 23, 2016

I've had a couple of nominations for this blogger award - see here and here - and while I don't tend to nominate others to do it (because like me, most people have now done it multiple times) I still like the concept of sharing some blog love and always like answering the questions because it gives me something to write about.

Lauren from Teacher Types is my most recent nominator. Thanks Lauren! You'll be seeing a guest post from Lauren here on Almost Posh soon, so look out for it.

First; 10 random facts about me:

1. I was on TV game show The Weakest Link circa 2001. I made it halfway through and was the strongest link in Round 1 before I got knifed by a mole from Moana.

2. Dale and I were married on the fourth anniversary of our first date . . .  in Las Vegas. It was the same chapel where Angelina married Billy Bob. Elvis was not in attendance.

3. My first overseas trip was a Contiki European tour in 2001. I woke up on my first morning overseas to news of the Bali bombings.

4. I have lived in two industrial cities, two small country towns and two capital cities across three Australian states.

5. I have written and recorded a song that received commercial airplay on Nova 91.9 in Adelaide.

6. Jobs I've had include various admin roles, court reporter, customer service officer, waitress (lol) and shopping centre harrasser.

7. I can wiggle my ears and move my eyeballs independently of each other. Obviously, I'm a hit at parties.

8. I always put my left shoe on first.

9. I get called Ruth on average once a week which is annoying enough but even more so because it's my sister's name and most people doing it have never even met her.

10. The first book I ever read was "The Enchanted Wood" by Enid Blyton and I have over 100 of her books still.

And now my specially set questions:

1. I know you love op-shopping! What's been your very best find? Like the best label? Or the best bargain??

I got a pair of brand new black pants (Review) that fit like a dream for $12 from Savers. I've also found shoes by Vivienne Westwood ($6), Salvatore Ferragamo ($8) and Kurt Geiger ($17).

2. Favourite make up product right now for those of us who are challenged in the make up department?

Boring foundation aside, I can't go past my Tarte Tartelette eyeshadow palette. I use it every day. It has 12 matte neutral shades and every one is totally wearable as either a full-lid shadow or as liner with a liner brush. It's super easy to use and while it's not cheap, it's a good investment if you just want one workhorse palette.

3. Again sticking with the theme of those of us who are challenged in the fashion department - what trends are coming up for Spring??

Spring will bring us more off-the-shoulder styles if you only joined in late last season like me, block heels (yay, comfort!) and boho type vibes.

4. Meal + beverage you started your day with today?

I am not great when it comes to breakfast to be honest. Today I am munching on handfuls of  the Superboost mix from Coles and a small latte with Zymil from Cotto.

5. Quote of the mo...

I am useless at inspo quotes so I'll throw you something from those immortal brothers of philosophy, N & L Gallagher:

I think there's something in that for all of us, don't you?

What are you doing with yourself lately? Have you entered my giveaway yet?
