Grey Days to Glimmering Blog Party

Over on 'Accordion to Kellie' we are all having a blog party (which to whom everyone is invited) in order to get us all out of the January Blahs. 

I am filling out a few questions Kellie gave me in order to take part of her very, very lovely give away.

1) What's your favourite thing to do when you've been feeling uninspired?
I love to get myself out doors to freshen up. I like to take a camera with me and snap some pretty things that often go untouched and unnoticed. It always gets me in the mood to share what I have found to all of my lovely readers.

2) Tell us about a really great movie/show that you've just discovered.
I have always had a bit of a thing for Les' Miserables. My Nanny offered to take me to see it in the theatres in Paris but it never ended up happening so when I found out the new version of it was coming out in the Cinema I felt as though it kind of made up for it. I enjoyed it so, so much! The best film I have ever seen by far. 
3) What do you like to do to change your mood?
Go for a drive with Chris and enjoy some good old country side!

4) Your favorite drink is currently...
Ahh, as some of you may already know I am in love with the Redbush Vanilla Tea. It is too good to be true. Some people say that it is too sweet and overwhelming but that is what I like about it the most. Me and my sweet tooth, oh dear!

5) When you hear the word exuberant, what's the first word that comes to mind?

6) What made you smile last?
My brother building an igloo in the front garden and him getting ever so proud even though it was only knee high. He is so sweet!

7) What five songs would make a playlist to describe your week?
Oooh, any tune from the movies: Brave, Little Women and Les' Miserables.

8) What's at the top of your creative 'To-Do' list?
Sew that silly hand bag and dress. Come on, Chloe you can do this!

9) The last thing you crossed off the above list was...
Neither, sadly. :(

10)  Quickly - the first movie quote from the top of your head, please!
Oh, dear I have been sat here for a whole two minutes. I must have a very bad memory seeming as I only just finished watching a film.

11)  The best thing about January is...
Snow, lots of it!

12) The worst thing about January is...
The cold. Hem, did that contradict myself?

13) What's your #1 resolution for 2013?
Stay motivated and learn to love myself more.

14)  And lastly, share a quote or verse that you've found especially inspiring lately.


  1. Thanks so much for joining us Chloe! I loved your answers!
    I can't wait to see Les Miz... probably have to wait till my library gets it on the shelf:)
    Good luck with your handbag and dress! They're going to be lovely!
    Love that quote.


  2. Aw, thank you! I had fun doing it! Yes, I can't wait until we can get it on DVD. :D

  3. I love going out with a camera myself. Very often, I do not share those things in the end, but very often, it inspires me to something else...

  4. Hi there Chloe! What a charming bloggy you have :) I just kept reading and reading and scrolling down and down all the pics for this post and your answers for the post on the award you won as well.

    Little Women soundtrack always makes me feel happy whenever I listen to it :)I wished I could have seen a pic of your brother's igloo--haha sounds so cute:)

    I love RUsche too, my fav-online boutique. Makeup--hopelessly in love with. And someday I hope to move to the Lake District too!! haha while I am quite far away at the moment, across the ocean-no less, a girl can still hope, right?

    Happy Sunday!
    Jeanine :)

    1. Thank you so much, Jeanie, for your ever so lovely comment! Looks as though we have lots in common. :D xx

  5. Excellent quote and great advice! :) Exuberant blueberries, eh? I like it! And I am definitely in the camp of loving the snow but wishing I didn't get so cold while playing in it. ;) Although I must admit that as I now live in CA, I'm not too sad that it doesn't snow here since I certainly don't like driving in it.

    1. Wow! So in CA, you never get snow? That is quite impressive seeming as we've just had 5 inches of the stuff! :D
