I was very glad when I noticed (quite late :)) that my blog got 4 awards from my lovely blogger friend Lynn @ LovelyCosme blog.
Thank you Lynn for the nominations!
Now I will share with you some facts about me, because the condition is to answer some questions. I find this a very nice idea! This way we socialize more, know better each other and share our energy !
Let’s come to the facts now 🙂

The Versatile Blogger Award Rules

1. Thank the person who nominated you and give their blog a shout out on your blog with a link to their blog
(Already done in the beginning of the post)

2.Share 7 random facts about yourself:
– I LOVE MAKE-UP! It’s not just my job (make-up artist), but it’s my life passion since ever, this is why Green make-up blog. Researching and trying new products and colors is my obsession. I also have a “weakness” for make-up brushes, I just can’t resist them 🙂

– I like eating and cooking. Exploring new tastes, new international kitchens, browsing on the food market, making new dishes…I always create something new in the kitchen.The colors and textures are so inspiring! My next step would be my biodynamic garden…But not yet 🙂 Maybe when I get older. Now it’s sufficient my mom’s garden 🙂 Another “weakness”: cooking books! In general, I enjoy food very much and believe that a good attitude towards food brings just positive results on the outside!

– I adore reading books about life, spirituality, energies, quantum physics, as well as researching old body-mind-spirit knowledges. I always love listening when people share with me their real life stories of their personal growth. This is why in my job I adore to talk with the client before, to understand better her needs.

– “I fill my batteries” with relaxing in nature or meditating and on the other side it fills me so much when I’m in good company, talk with people to share stories and know them better.

– Good art exhibitions are one of my favorite relax as well.

– I appreciate artisanal things, those beautiful hand-made objects, when designers spend a lot of time in modeling them. Especially beautiful clothes, when they are shaped and modeled in complicated ways. I guess this is the fault of being a fashion designer 🙂

– As you could see, books of all sorts are my passion, so I’m supposed to write a book myself as well 🙂
It’s the end, ok, I could go on 😀

The questions and my answers
1. How long have you been blogging?
The archive dropdown of my blog says since September 2010. So, it will be soon 2 years.

2. What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
I got the idea to share my ideas and opinions around through a written medium. Also many people encouraged me to do it, because they always said that I’m very good at explaining things and that everything became clearer about make-up and cosmetics when I advised them. But the idea came into life definitely when I discovered the world of organic cosmetics. Then, I really felt the call to share what I’ve learnt (and still learn of course).

3. What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
Those that have same interests like: cosmetics, natural healing, fashion, food recipes,…

4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?

    Thanks for the post, Dasha! 🙂 It’s such an interesting thing to know you more 🙂
    Oh, I hope that living nature lipstick has no carmine in it! It frustrated me to find a good natural lipstick with no carmine in it. Even vapour has carmine in it,and so does jane iredale,and other brands. Seriously,I don’t want to swallow insect -__-..
