So a while ago I saw the 73 vogue questions somewhere on a blog and I thought it was a pretty cool idea. And this week I got tagged by I was tagged by Sarah and now I can finally answer these questions too.
1. WHAT IS YOUR USUAL STARBUCKS ORDER?
I don’t know? I never go to Starbucks. Reason number one is that I don’t like coffee and I can make myself a cup of tea for less. The only Starbucks we have here is at the trainstation and it is not the place where I come every single day.
2. WHAT DOES YOUR WORK STATION LOOK LIKE RIGHT NOW?
Ehh like a mess? I don’t have a real work station. I just sit wherever I want to. Currently I am sitting on the couch writing this blog post.
3. ALL-TIME FAVOURITE FOOD?
Italian food for sure. I love pasta, pizza and that kind of stuff.
4. FAVOURITE AUTHOR?
So I have a few favourite authors. When I am in the mood of reading something easy and romantic, I just read Colleen Hoover or Jill Mansell. And when I am in the mood for something different, like thrillers. I prefer to read Harlan Coben for sure. Or maybe Karin Slaughter.
How can you have only one favourite author? It is impossible.
5. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OPEN RELATIONSHIPS?
Not my cup of tea. I am looking for a guy who is only interested in me.
6. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE VIDEO GAME?
Hahaha, well. I don’t play video games. I used to when I was younger. I used to love to play video games like The Sims 1 or Rollercoaster Tycoon 1. They were absolutely my favourite games ever. And now I want to play the sims or rollercoaster again.
7. GUILTY PLEASURE TREAT?
Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, or maybe watching a Hallmark movie
8. FAVOURITE MOVIE?
Just one? I have a few. I love Pride and prejudice because I love Mr Darcy! I loved the Hunger games movies too. And this year so far my favourite movie is Aladdin. I love that story. I really enjoy watching Disney movies.
9. FAVOURITE BOOK?
I am currently reading ‘The Hating Game’ by Sally Thorne and I really like it. Not sure if it is going to be my favourite, but it makes a chance. I still have to finish it. I also really liked Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. Or maybe November 9. That is also a great book by her.
10. TWITTER OR INSTAGRAM?
I love the bookstagram community, so I am going to say Instagram I think. I love to post on there. Twitter is more the place where I connect with other writers/bloggers. Which is great too, but I don’t use it very often.
11. DESKTOP OR LAPTOP?
I only have a laptop right now but I would love to have a Desktop (Apple Imac). I really need a place where I can sit down and write. Also I think it is better for your neck and back when you have a desktop. I always have to look down on my laptop.
12. BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
Follow your heart. But seriously, you really have to follow your heart. Life is way too short to do something you hate. Don’t listen to what other people are saying to you, do what you love to do.
13. WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
I am currently improving my blog, mostly improving my DA score. That means I am writing a lot of new blog posts, improving the older ones and focus on internal/external linkbuilding. And I am also working a story on wattpad.
14. FAVOURITE COLOUR?
Depends on my mood, but mustardyellow
15. DID YOU GET GOOD GRADES AT SCHOOL?
Uh yes! I did pretty well in high school. A lot of times I was just bored because it was too easy. But I didn’t wanted to go a level higher (school system in Netherlands is complicated).
And in university I did also pretty well. You could see if I liked a subject or not. If I did like it, I would get a 9 or a 10. And if I wasn’t interested I got a 6 or a 7 maybe.
16. DREAM JOB?
17. PLAYED ANY SPORTS?
Yes! I started taking dance classes when I was 12 years old I think. I really loved to perform for people, so that was great. I also played a lot of football. But I quit both at the age of sixteen because I got a job at a store.
18. DO YOU HAVE A DEGREE?
Yes! Bachelor degree. I studied economics
20. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE KIND OF BLOG POST TO DO?
I love these kind of blog posts (blog tags) but I also love to write about lifestyle related things. And I write book/movie review on my blog, but somehow I am too insecure about it. So that takes the fun part away.
21. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO COLLECT?
Cats, tea bags, books and chocolate.
22. DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS?
Weird, introverted, passionate
23. IF YOU WERE A RAPPER WHAT WOULD YOUR RAPPER NAME BE?
Haha I am now thinking about my nicknames in high school. Queen B was one of them. But that would be too confusing because everyone is calling Beyoncé Queen B. My other nickname was SuperBe(ttie). I took French classes and superbé is a French word. My friend turned it into Superbe(ttie). So that would be my rapper name I think.
24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU DM’D?
I don’t dm on Twitter… And we are not talking about whatsapp texts right? So the last person is someone I don’t know. She saw that I lived in the Netherlands and she wanted to ask me something for her trip to Amsterdam.
25. WHAT IS ON THE TOP OF YOUR WISH LIST RIGHT NOW?
Macbook for sure. I would love to adopt one or two cats one day. Can you put that on your wishlist? I also want to buy the Canon Gx7.
26. SORTING HOUSE?
I would love to say gryffindor but honestly I am mix of every house. I think I am divergent (oh, wait different movie). But I want to hang out with Hermione because she is funny and all that.
27. HOW MANY TATTOOS DO YOU HAVE?
0. A few years ago I wanted to get a tattoo but I am also too scared that I want to get rid of it a few years later. That is the biggest reason why I am not getting a tattoo.
28. WHAT ARE YOU MOST GRATEFUL FOR THIS YEAR?
A lot of things. Getting new oppourtinies for my blog/instagram.
29. WHAT’S THE BEST THING THAT’S HAPPENED TO YOU THIS MONTH?
That it is not 41 degrees anymore and it is finally cooling down outside. Another thing is reading a lot of books.
30. WHAT’S THE BEST THING THAT’S HAPPENED TO YOU TODAY?
Well it is only 11 AM when I am writing this so there can still happen a lot of amazing things today. But now I am looking at a cat who is sleeping and it is so cute.
31. WHAT IS THE BEST THING EVER?
CATS! Chocolate, books, movies, friends, love, freedom
32. FAVOURITE SEASON?
Spring or autumn
Spring because it is getting warmer again after a cold winter. And Autumn because I love the smell and colours of autumn. Autumn is the perfect season to stay home reading a book when it is raining and when the sun is shining I love to go out for a long walk and enjoy the beautiful nature.
33. FAVOURITE HOLIDAY?
Christmas? Oh damn. I don’t know. I love Christmas because I love the Christmas songs and movies. I also love Halloween, but here in The Netherlands we don’t celebrate it. I just watch a bunch of Halloween movies. Yeah, I think Christmas is probably my favourite holiday.
34. WHAT FICTIONAL CHARACTER DO YOU RELATE TO THE MOST?
Elizabeth Bennett. Or hermione. I love to read and I love to walk just like Elizabeth Bennett. I am also pretty smart, so that is the hermione part of me.
35. DO YOU LIKE SURPRISES?
Yes and no. Suprise me when I am not feeling anxious. And depends on the suprise too. If you booked a hotel or something without telling, I would go crazy. Just because of my anxiety. But small suprises like bringing me flowers is nice.
36. WHAT’S THE BIGGEST SURPRISE YOU’VE EVER HAD?
oh damn! I honestly don’t know. I remember that time I really wanted to go to Pinkpop festival. I really wanted to see Mumford and Sons and I made plans with someone but she canceled last minute. But then suddenly another friend said: we are going to Pinkpop. That was awesome! I had one of the best weekends of my life.
37. WHAT’S THE SURPRISE THAT MADE YOU CRY?
I cry a lot but not with surprises haha. Books, music and movies can make me cry, but suprises not really.
38. WHAT’S THE BEST SURPRISE YOU’VE EVER GIVEN SOMEONE?
I just realized I should surpise people more often.
39. DO YOU LIKE MUFFINS?
YES! Chocolate (chip) muffins please.
40. DO YOU COOK OFTEN?
Yes, every single day for dinner. Sometimes it can get boring to cook every single day. So sometimes I just watch YouTube videos while I am cooking or I just listen to my favourite songs and dance.

42. IS THERE A DESSERT YOU DON’T LIKE?
YES! I don’t like pie except for apple pie or pie with chocolate.

44. WHAT’S YOUR LEAST FAVOURITE FOOD?
I don’t like rhubarb. I also don’t like pie (except for apple and chocolate pie obviously)

It depends on what I am eating. But most of the time I like to add CurryKetchup. It is a mix of curry and ketchup.
46. IT’S 4 AM ON A SATURDAY NIGHT, WHAT WOULD YOU EAT?
Well, my first question would be: Am I still up at 4 AM? or Did I just wake up? I go for option 1, still awake at 4 AM. That is something that would never happen to me but if I was still awake in the middle of the night I would eat anything I could find that is not healthy in the fridge.
47. IF YOU COULD TEACH A COLLEGE CLASS WHAT WOULD IT BE CALLED?
I studied economics so you probably think that I would answer something similar to that. But I would love to teach a class about blogging, social media marketing. Or maybe something about mindset.
48. BEST ANIMATED FILM?
Vaiana, Tangled/rapunzel. So basically every animated movie from Disney and Minions is a great movie too.
49. WHAT HAS A GUY (OR GIRL) DONE OR SAID TO IMPRESS YOU?
nothing. That hasn’t happened yet. haha. I am not easily that impressed. There was one guy that was trying to impress me and he was talking about how rich he and his family was. That was the most boring thing ever.
50. BEST THING TO DO ON A DATE?
My ideal date starts at home. I know it is weird to invite your date over to your house, but when I already know him I would do that. Than we make pizza and we watch tons of funny movies. Then we go out to the beach and sit the sunset. I like my dates relaxed and chill.
51. WORST THING TO DO ON A DATE?
Good question. Bragging on how rich you are is one of the things. But for the date itself I don’t like eating in a restaurant because of my food allergy. That personally that is the worst thing I/we can do on a date.
52. WHAT IS THE FUNNIEST PICK UP LINE A GUY/GIRL COULD USE ON A GIRL/GUY?
Don’t use pick up lines. They are stupid. hahaha

56. IF YOU COULD PLAY A HISTORICAL CHARACTER WHO WOULD IT BE?
oh great question. Tought one though. Jane austen.
57. KITTENS OR PUPPIES?
I love them both!! But I am more a cat person, so I go for the kitties.
58. FAVOURITE SUSHI ROLL?
None, because I;’ve never had sushi. I know you can get sushi without fish, but I’ve never tried it. Maybe someday.
59. WHAT KIND OF LIPSTICK DO YOU USE?
A dark red one but I don’t know the name. From the Hema. It is a store in the Netherlands and they sell vegan and animal friendly make-up.

I don’t wear foundation a lot, almost never. But it is also a foundation from the Hema.

Air dry for sure. Blow drying is not great for your hair

Me, myself and I.

Probably writing more blog posts, reading a new book (not sure which one yet) and it is going to be a rainy day, so it is going to be a stay inside day. And hopefully I can still go out for a walk without getting soaked.
