10 facts

07 April 2014

Call me nosy, but I love reading "facts about me" posts from bloggers I like. I just love getting a little insight into someone's personality, one that is often hidden behind little glimpses on their blog/social media/comments... tell me I'm not alone?

The lovely and beautiful Marla recently tagged me with some fun questions (from which I've picked my favourites), so I thought it would be the perfect excuse to give back a little and present some facts about me (whether you're interested or not is another matter...!).

1. Do you have any siblings?
I have one younger sister, younger by 3 and a half years. Wiser than me by 3 and a half though, probably! Growing up, we fought a lot, but for the past near-decade we have barely argued and are very close. I subconsciously imagine my future children to be two girls, because that's what I grew up with and I wouldn't have changed it for anything.

2. What is your ideal location for your next vacation?
E and I have recently booked our Summer holiday - to Lake Como in Italy! Which is pretty much the perfect destination for us, as it includes beautiful views, the mountains, the waterfront, great food, and lots of different lakeside towns to explore. We will be celebrating our first wedding anniversary there, and I can't wait.

3. What is your favourite way to spend a Sunday?
First and foremost: I'll take any amount of sunshine in any way I can. A morning run, delicious and indulgent brunch and a little stroll around London city in the afternoon, followed by relaxing in our garden with a glass of wine in the evening... that would be pure bliss.

4. What is your favourite season and why?
Autumn. I'm an Autumn baby, the colours can't be beaten, it's not too hot but not too cold (mostly) and just beautiful and crisp and bittersweet. Plus, hiding behind massive scarves is the best.

5. If you could only have chocolate or bread for the next five years, which would you choose?
Damn you Marla! I think I would choose bread. I love chocolate with all my might, but I am much more of a savoury than a sweet person and I think I could just about survive 5 years without chocolate. I would feel bad for the people in my life though, dealing with a choco-less lunatic.

6. What's your favourite Disney song?
A Whole New World from Aladdin. This was probably the easiest question to answer...

7. Would you rather splurge on bags or shoes?
Most definitely bags. There are quite a few dream bags with ridonculous price tags that I could never actually imagine buying, but I appreciate their beauty nonetheless! My current designer crushes for bags are Mulberry and Prada.

8. If you could have a talent that you don't currently possess, what would it be?
Is it too late for me to be a ballerina? Probably. A talent I would love to have, is to be an author of a novel. I've always had a real passion for creative writing, and I have produced bits and pieces in the past that I have been proud of - but I honestly don't think I have the talent, patience or complete dedication to write and complete a book of my own. I never say never, but I think I will leave that up to those who really were born to do it.

9. What's your favourite thing about your blog?
At the risk of sounding a bit up myself, I just like the content I post. Not because I think it's anything groundbreaking or special, but just for my own sake, I like having the documentation of things I've done, books I've read, food I've enjoyed - for me it's an online scrapbook and I genuinely enjoy remembering the little things. Equally as much though, I love the interaction I have with fellow bloggers and readers in the comments and on social media - it's a lot of fun and often insightful.

10. What is your favourite form of social media?
I think I've mentioned it before, but definitely Instagram. I love looking at other people's photos, liking and commenting on them, and just seeing what the rest of the world is up to through the camera lens.

Speaking of which, all the photos in this post are from my Instagram feed (@MihoWTW), which you can follow here if you want to!


  1. Same here, I love having a little nosy into people's lives! It's always interesting to learn more about other bloggers. As an only child I am jealous that you have a younger sister! I would also choose to splurge on bags rather than shoes... if only I could though!

  2. I always enjoy more personal posts once in a while! So strange that you've always imagined having two daughters because that's how your family set-up was - I guess I subconsciously imagined the same (1 boy, 2 girls) for me too and that's why. My favourite social media platform is Instagram too at the moment - completely obsessed with snapping and editing away!

  3. you're definitely not alone. i love reading things about my favorite bloggers too. loved getting to know you more, miho!

  4. I love fun fact posts, too! Only, I can seemingly never come up with a fun fact when I'm asked. Only when I'm randomly sitting around eating bread.

    Because I'd take bread over chocolate, too. :D

  5. I'd have chosen for bread as well even though I love eating
    chocolate :P but bread is so versatile! Anyway thanks
    for showing us your 10 things/facts ^_^ Xx

  6. haha I'm the same! I love being nosy and finding out more about my favourite bloggers :) Lake Como sounds amazing by the way. I've always wanted to go there. Can't wait to see your posts about it. xx

  7. It's one of my favorite things, too! Everyone has so many neat quirks, especially the fun blogger community :) I'd have to go with chocolate, though..such a sweet tooth!

  8. I am super nosy, so I always enjoy posts like this! Beautiful photography as always.

  9. Y U SO PRETTY!!?? Anddd I really want to respond to each of this so that's what we're going to do haha.
    1. This must be a normal thing to do because I always picture myself with two girls and one youngest boy because that's how I grew up! Would you want your kids to have Japanese/French names?
    2. UM JEALOUS. I can't wait to see all of your posts about this because I loved your ones from Maldives :]
    3. That sounds like my ideal Sunday too hehe. Minus the run part because I'd rather sleep haha.
    4. Hiding behind massive scarves is indeed the best!! I also like fall the best of all the seasons, it's by far the best to dress for in my opinion. In summer you just want to wear nothing and in winter you just want to wear everything and I like fall colors better than spring ones haha.
    5. Sorry bout it ;] But I actually died reading your answer because I also would feel bad for all around me if I had to be without either bread or chocolate for five years. How to turn me into a lunatic indeed!
    6. That's my second favorite Disney song! My number one is Part of Your World hehe.
    7. You get ten million points for using the world ridonculous hahahaa.
    8. I took one ballet lesson when I was a kid but I got too nervous and quit haha. But I want to be a writer too...I feel like I don't have the creativity to do it though.
    9. I love this about your blog too :]
    10. ME TOO.


  10. Oh hello! Nice to read about you. I'm new to your blog so this is pretty good timing!

  11. This was so interesting to read, I love getting a sneak peek into other bloggers' lives.

    P.s. bread would be my choice too :)

  12. Oh I love this! It really is interesting to learn more about the gal behind the blog! I really love your comment about the blog being like an online scrapbook. I was trying to explain it to Dan just last night, there's something really exciting about being about to click publish and see your work posted for all to see. What I really love though is when someone asks me about an experience and I can respond with "well, actually.. I posted about this" then can quickly reflect on the entire event. (As I write this, I realize I probably sound so corny, but I think you understand what I mean... ha) Thanks for sharing! :)

  13. I've just found your blog (and I'm stupidly nosey) so I love posts like these! I've started singing 'A Whole New World' now though... so thanks for that, haha. Is it really bad that I honestly don't think I could survive without chocolate?! Probably couldn't even do five days, let alone five years...
    Loving the blog, you write really really well! xx


Thank you for visiting and commenting! I'd love to hear from you.
