Wee Bits of Me

It's Wednesday and after my heavy post about lost friendships, I think it's to sit back, relax, pour yourself a tall glass of {H20 in my case but choose whatever tickles your fancy} and learn a little wee bit about me. I don't know how Leigh comes up with these awesome questions every single Wednesdays but I love just tagging along! If you feel like playing too, please link up with Ashley and leave me a comment for me to come check you out :)

{one} what is your happiest childhood memory?
I used to grab strawberry ice cream with my birth father every single Friday; it was our moment together and I used to be the happiest little girl.


{two} what is your middle name?
I don't have one officially but my mother loves to call me Idmane.

{three} what’s the habit you’re most proud of breaking?
Biting my nails although I kinda succumbed to my nails AGAIN two nights ago. But I will break that habit even if it takes years.


{four} what do you order when you order chinese food?
I had chinese on my mind tonight actually {Leigh are you reading my mind?} so instead of ordering orange chicken, I decided to make my own using this recipe.


{five} what’s the best bargain you’ve ever found at a garage sale or thrift store?
I found this antiqued chandelier-type earrings with blue beads for 1 euros. The woman who sold it to me told me that her mother wore those earrings to her wedding . It has such a wonderful story behind it and call me clich├ęd, but I'd like to believe that it would bring good luck to a new bride. So to all the new brides-to-be, do you need something old and something blue?

{six} what’s the best costume you’ve ever worn?
HANDS DOWN, My Scary Spice costume. I was about 12 or 13, and I wore these huge platform shoes, had aluminum cones in my hair with my curly unruly waves and had lots of black eye-liner. I was channeling Scary Spice in the "Spice up Your Life" video. I would go up to people's houses and scream like she did.


{seven} who’s your favorite game show host?
I may be just a little biased but it would have to be Christophe Dechavanne. He is a french game show host and is one of the funniest guys I've ever seen on TV. He hosts the french version of the Wheel of Fortune and Family Feud.

{eight} what’s your favorite breakfast food?
Vanilla Cinammon French Toast; no doubt about that.


{nine} what’s your least favorite word?
Racism. I despise that word.


{ten} describe something that happened to you for which you have no explanation.
I woke up on a staircase after a friend's party wearing a set of undergarments over my clothes. And before you ask, no I was not hungover. I STILL don't know how it happened :S



  1. Orange chicken is amazing!! It's my go-to staple whenever I order Chinese. MMM
    Omg I just realized I'm eating it RIGHT NOW (doh) haha but on a panini from Whole Foods. Just finishing up my last bite :(

  2. love these! Thanks for becoming a follower on my blog I am now one of yours :) Yummy you have a lot of good looking food on here. French Toast, ice cream, and orange chicken.

    Dude you gave me the perfect idea for what to wear to this 90s themed party I am going to...Thanks!!! You rock! Now I just have to get some more girls on board.

  3. I LOVED Scary Spice, I wish you had a picture of you in your costume!
    Love your answers.

  7. did u really need to post food:) yum! love - i get to splurge on the weekends so i'm def. grabbing some strawberry ice cream, chicken and french toast::)

  8. That's funny--I actually was Ginger Spice years ago (it was my freshman year in college) and I went out with the girls and I think we pulled it off pretty well :)

    I love the story of the earrings. Sounds like a wonderful purchase that you should hold on to for years to come.

  9. i gave you an award on my blog because i think you're cool like that! :)

  10. For some reason I thought I was following your blog, and then realized it didn't add to my google reader. But now I am officially following and love your posts. Can't wait to read more!

  11. Let'see a picture of the earrings!!! I was always posh spice but wanted to be ginger.. isn't it funny how we change? If we were dressing up for that TOMORROW I would have wanted to posh and had anyone said Geri I would have just

  12. Wow those ARE great questions. I'm totes jacking that Orange Chicken recipe. I could tear up some orange chicken.

  13. That breakfast sounds so good!

    I loved this post!

  14. I love your answers! And seriously... that picture of that strawberry ice cream is making my mouth water. You MUST find a picture of your scary spice costume and post it!!

    p.s. I just tagged you in my most recent post!

  15. I'm a nail biter too!

    I LOVED the story about the earrings! I'm obsessed with thrift store/tag sale shopping, but I rarely get to hear the store behind my purchases.

    You always have the best pictures : )

  16. Hey, I gave you a blog award! Come check it out:)

  17. Agree with some of the above-- I wanna see that Scary Spice costume! Also, I've also been a HORRIBLE nail picker (not biter) my entire life. It's so obnoxious, and I hate how my hands look when my nails are really short. Once in a VERY RANDOM while, I'll suddenly fall out of the habit. (It's usually because my nails are too short to pick anymore.) Then they'll mysteriously grow, and I get really excited, and I'm really good about not picking them, and suddenly they look fabulous. But then they start to break, and when they break, they're fun to pick, and then they're back to nothing. GAH.


  18. loving the post and the answers! have followed you with a previous blog where you also followed mine. It was time for a change and now i am anonymous (due to different reasons) I now have a fresh one and maybe you could follow me. Glad I found yours again even with your changed blog name. SG x


    inspired by you =]
