Questions from Natalie:

1. What's your pet peeves?
I seriously cannot stand people slurping like a cup of tea or soup and they slurp I don't like the sound it annoys me like crazy! 

2. What's your ambition? 
I would love to be a professional blogger and also an online entrepreneur but most of all to be the best wife in the world and to be able to move to Queenstown in New Zealand.

 3. Worst date story.
To tell you the truth I have never had a bad date. I have been with my Fiancé since I was 16 and he is the only one I ever went on dates with I guess I'm lucky.

4. What's your favourite ice-cream flavour?
There is this gelato store on Lygon Street in Fitzroy near Melbourne, Australia, who makes the greatest Italian gelato and the Apple Pie flavour is the greatest thing I have ever tasted. period.

5. If you could relive a day in your life again, which day would you like to relive again?
I would choose the day my Fiancé proposed to me.
It was in Queenstown, New Zealand, and he organised for a helicopter to take up to a snow capped mountain and while up there he asked me to be his forever we had the greatest time on that trip it was amazing not only because he proposed but it was the greatest holiday I had ever had.

6. Which celebrity would you like to be for a day?
This one was the hardest for me I know it's weird but I don't really think about this kind of thing.
But maybe I would like to be Emma Stone I find her hilarious and really down to earth.

7. Who is your favourite Disney Princess?
Now this is my kind of question haha I am the biggest kid ever.
I would have to say Belle I have always loved her when I was little I used to dress up as her. My Mum made a dress for me that looked exactly like her yellow ball gown it was amazing and I always had it on. I think I also like that she is the only brunette, well she was when I was little, and she also shows that sometimes the right man is not always 'Prince Charming' and Mr Perfect he might have a beast that he needs to fight. But my Prince Charming he is Mr Perfect haha! 

8. What's you favourite app at the moment?
Now you are going to see how much of a kid I really am.
I am addicted to Kitty Kawaii.
Basically it's Farmville but with Hello Kitty and her Sanrio friends!
I can't get over the cuteness.

9. What makes you unique?
I am an old soul people my age are into the new and best of everything and I'm still sitting in front of my record player listening to LP's of the Beatles.
I also have a dress sense that is not typically what people would wear where I live I like to get inspiration from Japanese culture rather then the western culture.

10. What's your ideal date?
The greatest date I have had and it would have to be my ideal date was going to the Onsen Hot Pools in Queenstown. They are traditional Japanese hot tubs which over look the mountains on Queenstown and we got chocolate, wine and grapes served to us while we were there it was so perfect.

11. Favourite cuisine.
If you haven't already noticed I love Japanese food.
We have a Japanese restaurant about 15 minutes away and when we can afford it we like to treat ourselves to lunch there and get a lovely bento box.
But once a year for our anniversary we head into Melbourne and have dinner at the Nobu which is a Japanese Peruvian infusion it is amazing!
