In this week's Question Of The Week post, I thought that I would share 10 random facts about me. I really hope you find this somewhat entertaining and fun to read, it's definitely a lot more personal than my other previous two posts that I have done in this series so far. Without any further ado, here are 10 random facts about me! :-)

1.) My favorite makeup products to test out are eye shadows, lipsticks and blushes. I don't know why, but I always gravitate towards them whenever I'm in a store or online browsing on my favorite beauty websites.

2.) I love to sing! It's one of my favorite things to do, although I don't have the greatest voice on the planet. I mostly keep my singing behind closed doors, usually in the shower with a shampoo bottle in one hand pretending to be a participant on The Voice!

3.) I'm not a party girl. I would much rather snuggle up in a warm blanket with Simon by my side and order some takeaway, watch movies or play video games on a Saturday night.

4.) I love to play video games, it's been a hobby of mine ever since I was a little girl. I remember when my parents got me a PlayStation 2 for Christmas with the Lord Of The Rings Two Towers game. I think I completed that game around 20-30 times, that's how much I loved it. It's definitely one of my favorite Christmas presents that I have received, because it was the beginning of my love for gaming.

Some of my all-time favorite video games are The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time, Diddy Kong Racing, Call Of Duty World At War and Call Of Duty Black Ops 2. Do you like to play video games? If you do, do you have any game recommendation? Thank you! :-)

 5.) I love taking photos for my blog! I'm so glad that I decided to invest in a good camera, because I don't regret it for a second. For all of you who are wondering what camera I'm using, it's the Canon 550D. I bought it back in 2009, so it's turning 6 this year. Although it's old, it's just as good as it was when I first bought it and I haven't had any problems with it.

If you are thinking about investing in a good camera but you are a bit hesitant to go out and spend your money on it, just do it. You are not going to regret it if you love photography, believe me. There are so many amazing cameras on the market at the moment, so you definitely don't need to go out and buy the most expensive one to take good photos. Just do some re-search and look up reviews online. It's what I did when I bought my camera and it's been really helpful, especially if your not 100% sure what camera to go for! :-) 

6.) I love to travel, I think it's really fun to visit new countries and experience different cultures and their way of life. I'm going to Thailand in March with Simon and his family. We are going to Phuket once again and I'm really looking forward to it. We went to Phuket a couple of years ago and I had such a blast there, it's such a beautiful place so I'm very excited to go back there. The only thing that I'm not looking forward to is the long plane ride. I'm really scared of flying, but as long as I have Simon by my side I know everything will be okay.

7.) I love to paint my nails, I just find it very relaxing and therapeutic. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. No? Just me? Come on, I know your out there! :-) I just finished organizing my nail polish drawers and wall racks and I really like how it turned out. I'm planning on doing a makeup and nail polish storage and organization post as soon as I'm done sorting out and organizing everything. Leave me a comment down below if you are excited to see it! :-)  

8.) I actually like to clean, I find it to be quite relaxing and fun (most of the time, not always) to be completely honest with you. I know it might sound weird to some of you, but it's the truth. I love putting on some loud music and just clean, doing a little bit of singing and dancing in between the takes, ha ha. I feel a bit anxious when our apartment is messy and untidy, which is why I like to keep it as clean and tidy as possible.

9.) I'm currently listening to Emilie Nicolas, who is a singer from Norway. I got to see her perform live last weekend during a music festival here called Parkenfestivalen. She is such a talented soul, her voice is beautiful and quite unique. I highly recommend that you check her out on Spotify, you can find her profile here

10.) I'm really into home decor, I love decorating our apartment and making it look all nice and cozy. I recently came across a couple of cute pillow cases on eBay, which I'm planning on ordering for our living room area. Our apartment is mostly all grey, brown, black and white so they are going to fit right in with our style. You can find the pillow cases here! :-)

    I love to travel as well. My boyfriend and I are going to Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington in about a month.
