I love my blogger interview series so much. It has introduced me to so many amazing bloggers and I love getting to know them via this medium… and then when I finally get the chance to meet them in person, I feel like I’ve already connected with them!
Sheri-Lee is today’s featured blogger. She is otherwise known as SA Fashion Girl and writes the blog of the same name. Here she shares some insights into her life…
Know: I know that the key to happiness is maximizing the good and minimizing the bad. I know that life is a sort of ferris wheel, sometimes you’re at the bottom and sometimes you’re at the top. I know that I believe in karma. I know that we can do things we wouldn’t even dream of if we put our minds to it. I know that an open mind is a beautiful thing. I know that we need to be happy with ourselves. I know that there is magic everywhere if you believe it. I know that I will never know everything and that’s just fine.
Love: I love enthusiasm. I love the little things in life like curling up under a duvet and looking out at a rainy day. I love pizza, haha. I love having conversations until the sun comes up. I love kisses that seem to pause everything around you. I love spending time with friends and family. I love styling an outfit bit by bit to get a certain look. I love spontaneity. I love thoughtfulness. I love laughing. I love feeling content.
Read: I enjoy reading everything from autobiographies to fluffy chick lit to sci fi novels. Right now I’m reading the Uglies books by Scott Westerfeld, it’s set in the future where everyone becomes “pretty” at the age of sixteen when they undergo a compulsory surgery that comes with a myriad of other problems. It reminds me of the Hunger Games because it’s also Orwellian in nature.
Want: I want to travel. I want to learn a new language. I want to always keep learning. I also want the perfect Burberry trench, hehe. I want to light more candles and go for a massage. I want to always try new things. I want to watch fireworks while swimming in the ocean. I want to go on a road trip. I want to dance and laugh as much as possible. I want to rollerskate! I want it to be summer again. I want to fall into more swimming pools. I want to see the Northern Lights. I want more confetti showers in my life. I want to finally release a fashion line. I want to make people feel fantastic just as they are.
Wear: I wear clothes that are either very saccharine or very edgy. I like to mix the feminine with the rough, I’m really into girly-grunge looks. I’m all about spikes, leather, pastel colours, lace, silk, fur, studs, velvet, monster shoes and accessory overload. I also have cosmetic staples that I swear by; Alien by Thierry Mugler is my favorite fragrance and the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette is so useful. I also love rocking nail art and 90s body glitter, haha!
Need: I need love and happiness. I need to always keep growing from my experiences. I need beautiful moments. I need time out for myself. I need to keep appreciating every day. I need to feel safe. I need to exercise much more! I need wifi hehehe. I need hugs. I need as much time with my loved ones as possible. I need to get on planes to visit my sisters. I need to not worry about things I have no control over. I need to be kind to myself.
Thanks for taking part Sheri-Lee – some very insightful stuff here!
