73 Things About Me |A Blogger’s Version of Vogue’s 73 Questions

I’m not the one who joins tag posts or likes talking about myself. But I was inspired by some marvellous blogger over there to answer 73 Vogue style questions, so I thought I would share my answers with you all. Thanks, Sarah Lyon  – Champagne  & Petals – for tagging me in this one. 😊

1-What is your usual Starbucks order?

Believe it or not, I just had Starbucks once, and it was on a flight in which the only coffee option they had was this one. I still prefer any amazing local coffee shops from Brum over it.

2-What does your workstation look like right now?

I have two workstations. The tidy one – where I usually teach online and there are lots of props and English books. And the messy one – where I sit comfortably on the floor in front of the TV, and I  usually work on my blog and watch YouTube videos.

I could say Brazilian, but I also love Japanese, Indian and Syrian food. I know, I’m a proper multicultural foodie.

Wow, that’s a hard one. I read lots of people but I would go with a Brazilian one: Clarice Lispector.
