It’s Question Monday!
Are you excited? I am!! Like I’ve mentioned in my New Years resolutions post last week, I wanted to bring a bit of soul to my blog, sharing some honest answers to a bunch of questions each Monday. The idea is inspired by a book called Q&A a day, created by Potter Style. I decided I wanted to take this self portrait online but instead of answering a question a day, I’ll be answering the questions corresponding with the date on Mondays. If you want to join me, you’re more than welcome to answer the same question in the comments below, or if you feel like sharing your own story on your blog, feel free to do so and link me. I really want you to know me better but this is also about me getting to know you! So please, don’t be shy and join the fun!
Q: What’s your favourite accessory?
Deciding what my favourite accessory is, is a real challenge when you’re being me. I’m not the type of girl to spend a large amount of time in front of a mirror contemplating whether this piece or that matches my clothes or not and no matter how much I wish I could say it’s because I root for inner beauty, the truth is much more sobering. It’s because I’m lazy. I simply can’t be bothered to let my brains function in the morning. The only stress I can handle is locating my clothes and dragging myself towards the bathroom. Yawn. I have an imaginary voice telling me you’re all wondering what the heck I’m talking about…
To answer the question, I had to sit down and think. Hard. Surely, I must have some kind of accessory I can’t live without? I mean, I’m a girl. It’s supposed to be in my genes. Right? And just when I was about to blame my malfunctioning DNA that I don’t have a favourite accessory, my wandering eyes rested upon something shiny: my glasses!
For twelve years, I’ve been wearing my glasses every single day. Even back in the days when wearing them was “geeky” and “nerdy” and stupid but that never held me back because I was proud of my four-eyes. Plus, it’s really handy when you have the mother of eye bags taking its permanent residence underneath your eyes. It camouflages! Honestly!!

Age: 24, blueish with effects glasses 7. Age: 24, brown with effects glasses 8. Age: 21, brown-yellow glasses
P.S. I don’t think I have a picture of my first pair. Or it was so wrong in so many ways I have deleted them all. They were blue and round. A bit like Harry Potter.
This has no significance whatsoever.
What’s your favourite accessory? Do you like scarves? Or a pin? Or maybe it’s a handbag you can’t live without? Or you know, an iPhone can be considered as an accessory. It sure crossed my mind 100 times before I noticed the glasses…
Let me know! x
