Shaz's questions

 Why did you choose to blog?
I have always loved reading other people's blogs and when I was at uni I started a couple of my own blogs and loved the creativity and community that it brought into my life. I love the fact that you can post what YOU want on your blog and it can represent lots of differnt creative parts of yourself.what would you do if you got a 1000 flowers?
I would do a little flowerarranging... then probably give quite a lot away as gifts to make people happy.what's your favourite joke?
I can't think of a specific joke but I love reading the Buzzfeed links that say things like '20 ways to know you are a teacher' or '20 things only 80's babies would know'if you can Describe yourself what would you say?
              I would say that I am a huge mix of lots of different interests and hobbies.
who's you favourite youtuber ?
Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter because she is so down to earthwhat's your favourite novel or book?
That's a really hard question because I am a massive bookworm and read millions of books. At the moment I think it would probably be this small book called 'The Wise Woman and other stories' because I was brought up in an Ancient Eastern spiritual background and I like that kind of thing.
if there was only one shop you can shop at, which would it be?
Sadly, I have realised this would probably be H and M becuase whenever I do OOTD on my blog and I source the clothes they are pretty much always from there.
what do you do on your spare time?
I do A LOT of things in my spare time- dance, yoga, rock-climbing, painting, reading, cooking, movies, YouTube videos, DIY and most importantly blogging!
what's your favourite tea flavour?
Definitely peppermint
if you were stuck on an island for a month and you can have only one person with you  who would it be ?
I thinkk it would have to be my fiance Matt because I like hanging out with him.
what's your dream job?
Anything creative and varied.

Suzy's questions

Q1. What is your favourite part of blogging?
I love the part where you are sitting somewhere and thinking about your upcoming blog posts and you get a rush of inspiration and a million ideas come into your head and you are itching to get started.
Q2. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I would live exactly where I am now (London) because I love the changing seasons in the UK and I love being in the capital city where you can go and see new things every weekend and there are classes and meetup groups for pretty much anything you might want to try.
Q3. Did you make any New Years resolutions (and are you sticking to them)?
Yes, I resolved to try and have a healthy breakfast each day and build more exercise into my daily routine. I haven't done so great on the healthy breakfast but I am doing well with the exercise becuase I have started cycling to work (although I have to combat fear of death by lorry every day).

Q4. Who is your all time favourite blogger?
Even though this might be cliche it honestly is Tavi Gevinson. Style Rookie was the first blog I ever read and even though she doesnt write it any more I still go back and read through her posts because they make me feel so inspired and they are so uniquely beautiful.

Q5. What type of camera do you use?
I have just upgraded to an entry level SLR (yay) and it is the Nikon 3200D
Q6. What is your desert island beauty item?
Hardcore moisturiser for the elements.
Q7. Do you have a YouTube channel?  If not, do you plan on having one in the future?
I don't but I think I would tentativly like to have one by this summer if for nothing but to jazz up my blog a little.
Q8. What is your favourite movie?
The Moulin Rouge, I think Baz Luhrmann is a genius and he sort of reminds me of Tavi Gevinson in a way in that he blends colour, music, history and culture together in this hugely creative way and makes something really unique and iconic every time. Also the story makes me cry EVERY TIME.
Q9. Why did you pick you blogs name?
 I chose my blog name about six years ago and I chose the word chic because I wanted it to be fashionable and then I really love strawberries so I added that too!
Q10. What would you put in room 101?
I think I would put fear into Romm 101- this is the thing that holds me back the most in my life from doing the things I want.
Q11. What do you want to get from blogging?
I want to have a chance to be creative and do something that I really enjoy. I also want to meet other people who think the same way I do.

                                                             My questions

1) Why did you first start blogging?
2) What are your favourite hobbies?
3) If you could describe yourself in three words what would they be?
4) If you could only use two makeup products for the rest of your life what would they be?
5) Who is the most important person in your life and why?
6) If you could have dinner with one person but anyone in the world both alive or dead who would it be and why?
7) What is the thing that you would most like to change about the world?
8) Describe your ideal day
9) If you won the lottery what would you do?
10) What is the thing you would most like to gain from blogging?
11) If you were to give a piece of advice to any other blogger what would it be?
