Thankful for Blogger Friends Tag

Image

This is a pretty cool tag where you can get to know the person behind the blog a little more. Coincidentally I wrote a blog about myself yesterday and then I got tagged by the sweet Mammu in this tag. She is such a sweetheart and always makes me feel so pretty and special. Check out her blog!

ABOUT YOUR BLOG (Please be specific in your answers, so we can all learn something!):

  1. How long have you been blogging?
    I started blogging in May 2013, so 8 months now.
  2. Are there any bloggers who helped you out/encouraged you when you first started your blog?
    When I first started I didn’t really have any bloggers that helped out but eventually I gained a few loyal followers who now help me out on a regular basis with their support and encouragement and I appreciate them so much! But I do have two friends who encouraged this blog before I even began 🙂
  3. What Social Media has given you the most traffic to your blog?  Is there a platform that you don’t use?
    I don’t actually use any social media at all. I don’t have facebook or twitter but I do use instagram however I do not promote my blog on it . Not sure why either lol.
    If you have instagram add me nina_mostar
  4. How often do you post?  Do you have a regular schedule?
    I don’t have a schedule, I post when I can. Sometimes I won’t post for days and other times I’ll do a few post in one day.
  5. Where do you blog?
    Anywhere and everywhere! lol At work during downtown, at home, etc., using my laptop.
  6. What camera do you use?  What photo editing software do you use? .
    I actually don’t use a regular camera, I use my phone’s camera and it’s decent. As for photo editing programs, I only use Photo Editor and Cymera.
  7. How did you come up with your blog name?
    It’s not very creative at all lol I wish I had some clever catchy name like some ladies have come up with! It’s NinaFashionLife so It’s my name plus 2 things that my blog is about.
  8. Do you do any regular “series” posts on your blog?
    Hmm not really regular. I used to do outfits of the day on a regular basis but now it’s just a bit of everything. Routine is boring lol
  9. What draws you to a blog?
    Well what DRAWS me first is the look and layout of it , obviously it catches my eye but what KEEPS me there is content. Sometimes the layout is nicely customized but then I start browsing and the content just does not match the look of it. That’s when I go NEXXTTT! lol
    But I like seeing make up looks, curly hair products, favourites of the month and inspirational quotes.
  10. What turns you off of a blog?
    Bad spelling lol. Posting make up of the day looks every day and your make up looks exactly the same as the day before! I don’t get it. I also like to read about what you post so I don’t like seeing just a bunch of random pictures and nothing written, it tells me you have no personality , you’re boring and dry.
  11. How many blogs do you subscribe to? Are they all beauty related?
    I really don’t know how many blogs I subscribe to and I am too lazy to check but no they’re not all beauty related. Most are but a lot are about healthy lifestyles, inspirational every day life things, poetry, music, etc.
  12. When do you generally read blogs?
    During work when I am bored, on the way home from work on my phone.
  13. What is your favorite type of post, and why?
    I don’t really know if I have a favourite but some that I like are seeing different reviews on various cosmetics because I am always looking to try new make up and hair products. I also like reading quotes.
  14. What is your least favorite type of post, and why?
    I don’t like empties and I really really really cannot stand posts about make up inspired by…. some celebrity. I don’t know why. I am really never interested in replicating a celebrity look and I never ever read about those.

NOW ABOUT YOU!!  (If any are any you prefer not to answer, just skip!):

  1. Where do you live? Tell us a bit about your city!
    I live in Toronto, Canada and have been for the past 19 years. Yes Toronto is a great city in so many ways and I am greatful for the opportunity I have been given living here BUT people in Toronto are whack and have no sense of unity or community. The city is very boring as it is not original and always try to copy everything that New York does. Everyone thinks they are better than everyone else and try to be something they are not. Agh. This can turn into a novel so I’ll stop lol.
  2. What about your home?
    I live mid-town Toronto and I have just moved here 4 months ago. I love the area and I love my one bedroom apartment. It’s pretty spacious and cozy.
  3. Do you have a “day job”?
    Of course! lol… I work for the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.
  4. How tall are you?
    5’5. with brown eyes… smile like the sunrise lol
  5. Do you have siblings?
    I have a younger brother, 5 years younger who is the air I breathe.
  6. 3 words to describe yourself.
    Creative, Outspoken and Hard headed.
  7. Who is your style icon, and why?
    I don’t have a style icon. I kind of follow my own thing. I can’t say one person that I look up to for style inspiration.
  8. 3 favorite bands/musicians.
    Ok I am very versatile in my music choices. VERY . I listen to a lot of underground hip hop to latin music to motown oldies lol
    So my 3 favourite musicians would be Fabolous, Lauryn Hill/Mariah Carey (tie) and Boyz II Men . I dont care that they are not on the scene anymore and haven’t been in a gazillion years but I love them and no one will ever do what they did with music.
  9. 3 random/weird facts about you.

    I am allergic to mosquitos lol
    Even though I came to Canada at the age of 13 I still have an accent (some say it’s slight some say it’s noticeable a lot) and I love it!
    I am ADDICTED TO COFFEE!

Some ladies I’d like to tag in this are:

Pearls and Paris

Amriaa

  1. Thankyou for the tag, I hope to get it done once school finishes for the Christmas break.
    I was quite surprised to hear that Toronto has no sense of unity 😦 and the people are whack LOL. The way Drake put it on the map had me thinking it’s up and coming. I was lucky enough to visit Toronto as a teenager and it was very beautiful from what I can remember. I was thinking of teaching there in a few years time. What are the school’s like out there? xx

    1. Well Toronto is up and coming in a lot of ways. It’s come a looong way so that part of Drake making it seem like that is true in a way. But people are still whack as hell. Everyone thinks they are so hard and have something to prove. Sure we have some ghetto areas and hoods but all in all Toronto is a good city but they try to make it so hard as if it’s a cool thing to do. They should be happy we live in a good city.
      Anyway… lol
      As far as the teaching. I have a friend who is a high school teacher and a few years ago she tried to teach in the U.S. but was told that the education system is different and her credentials would not be accepted. She would have to take some extra courses that would make her be able to teach there. I am not sure if it’s changed since.

      1. London is exactly the same, they never show you the ‘ghetto’ areas on the TV but we have a lot of poor areas where people are really struggling to earn a living. City life is expensive right. I think with Londoners, people are so busy and money driven especially in the city. It’s hard to find genuine people. I do love London and it’s home but I definitely want to venture out and teach whilst I can. I am currently stuck at a horrible school and spent all day thinking of how to tell them I am leaving after Christmas.

      2. Oh crap for some reason I thought you were in the States. That’s why I left the comment I did about schools. My bad. I knew you were in London from a post before. I had a brain fart lol. In that case you may be able to teach here for sure!

  2. So glad you’re on instagram – I followed you 🙂 Even though I have long absent periods cause I finish credit on my phone all the time 😀 Yes routine is boring!!! I agree! I kind of like celebrity inspired makeup looks cause I like to see how does the person do recreating that look and all but I dislike celebrity inspired outfit looks for some reason hahhhaa Hugs!
