SIT-DOWN-WITH-A-CUPPA Q&A


I've noticed over the past year and a half of blogging (I still can't believe it) that I've never done a proper Q&A.

So, let's cut to the chase. You sent in your questions, and here I am answering them.

This is also a collab with Kasia, at kasiamurawska.blogspot.com, who also answered some of your dying questions plus a few behind-the-scenes bloopers from this photoshoot here.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE LIQUID LIPSTICK? - @rosetpics

I feel like NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams can't put a foot wrong. Unlike most liquid lippies, they have a luxurious creme formula that pack insane pigment, pass the long lasting test (can we make that a thing?) and have a non-drying velvet matte finish. Love. Love. Love.

WHAT GOT YOU INTO BLOGGING? - @lilymyax

In all honesty...my mum. I had never really read any blogs prior to creating this lil' corner of the internet. Picture this - one lazy summer 2015 day (you know the ones where you've already had enough of the holidays) my mum suggested creating a blog, and so girlabroadblogs.blogspot.com was born.


WHAT'S YOUR STAR SIGN? - @meetmeinmelford

My birthday's on the 20th October, so Libra. I'm meant to be balanced and romantic...so there's that.

WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR BLOG TO TAKE YOU? - @lifeastillyrose

Hmm, this is a tricky one, Tilly! Ultimately, I would love to be invited to London Fashion Week - I've got all the green-eyes for those lucky things attending shows right now. Here's hoping, haha.

WHAT IS YOUR STAPLE FASHION ITEM? - @meowameg

At the moment, I've been living in this New Look bargain jumper, which is no longer available as far as I'm aware, however I thought it deserved a mention anyway cause look at it

WHAT IS THE CRAZIEST THING YOU'VE EVER DONE? - @little_cutie_lover

In terms of most out-there thing I've experienced, it would definitely have to be holding 5 snakes around my neck (at one time) whilst I was travelling in Egypt. Or perhaps jumping offthe top deck of a boat into the Red Sea!

WHAT DO YOU USE FOR YOUR PHOTOS? - @meowameg

I feel like I've come a long way in terms of photography on the 'ol bloggywoggydoodah - #tb to horrendous lighting, awkward angles and totally fetch quality. My secret is the Canon EOS 450D. And Photoshop is bae. If you're interested in a blog post all about how I take my photos and edit them, then give me a shout.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA AND WHY? - @simplly_me

The obvious choice would be to say Instagram, which, don't get me wrong, I adore, but atm I can't get enough of Pinterest (you can follow me here *plug plug*). There's summin' so satisfying about the smorgasbord of inspiration.

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY? - @itsellarae

Travelling, blogging, friends, laughing until my stomach aches, brunch, cute stationery, shopping, Netflix...


WHERE'S YOUR DREAM PLACE TO VISIT? - @typicallyella and @rolosuniverse

I would love to visit somewhere in Asia, as I've never been there yet, so yeah, hit me up if you have any recommendations!

Leave your answers to one of these questions down below!

  7. Hi,

    I've been blogging for a bit longer than you have and have just started getting into the photographic aspect of my blog. it's a bit late...but better later than never, right?

    You wrote: "And Photoshop is bae. If you're interested in a blog post all about how I take my photos and edit them, then give me a shout."

    I would personally really enjoy that.

    All the best, Steph.

  9. Ah I love Q&As plus this is so cute! ~ for Asia I 100% recommend Japan first, it's a great way to ease into the continent with lovely hospitality and efficiency, plus it's just gorgeous anyway! Vietnam too is supposed to be lovely :) xx

  11. Congrats on your one year and a half anni! I bought the NYX lippies a couple of weeks ago and I'm still trying to get a hang of it... I just can't seem to make it look neat for some reason! One day, one day.

  12. Such a lovely post! I think my favourite social media would have to Instagram (because its just a really fun way to express yourself) and Pinterest because I love creating boards and getting really cool ideas!
