Long time no see! Today I am sharing with you some of my favorite activites that are the best for these warm days. Spring is one of my favorite seasons because warm days arrive after the cold winter, you can wear your light clothes again, play with light jackets and layers, flowers are blooming, people are happy.. AND it is not too hot – which is something that I HATE.
This is going to be a little series about all the activities I like to do during Spring!
WELL, PICNICS! I love love love love love picnincs!
Red Towel is a must, I hope we agree on this… (hihi)
Such a cute pic that I found @ A CUP OF JO (love this blog – tou should check it out)
You can’t forget to bring some things to play and have fun. This game can turn out crazy. I am that kind of girl who freaks out when she plays UNO. Sorry.
Well and a good board game is always nice! My favorite one must be Pictionary! So fun!
And well, to keep the atmosphere cool and relaxed, I would always bring my tiny speakers. I actually use these ones by Nokia. They are amazing. Well, but because we are educated, we will make sure the music is not too loud. *prep*
Today I’m writing a new kind of post where I will have the opportunity of interacting more with my readers and other bloggers, which is essentially what I like to do.
As I already told a million times, I live in Europe however I got the opportunity of going to the USA in the past and miss some things I would buy there so much!
After doing everything I could to find candy canes and some cool candles for the winter season, I have another objective now!
I would like to buy some cool beauty items! Some products are just impossible to find in Europe but thanks to this website, I can now purchase some of them. Well the problem is.. I cannot try any of the products before buying so this is where I will need your participation! Excited to help?!
I will make kind of a small serie for this: one day I will be asking your advice for a perfume, then for a hand sanitizer and so on.
Today I need your advice to find the best Victoria’s Secret Body Mist! I would be glad if you could help and share some of your last purchases!
Today I am very happy to introduce you to Caroline from Girl in the Yellow Dress. I am pretty sure most of you already know her, if not , click here right away to discover her amazing blog (but come back to read about her!).
How old are you (if appropriate)? Younger than my brother in law and older than my niece…..
What do you do (study, work)? In the past I’ve owned a Pilates studio, sold Insurance, worked in the automotive industry, worked in Real Estate Development, worked in retail. So you can say I kind of do a little bit of everything but deep down in my heart I’ll always be a dancer.
Where do you live? Vancouver, Canada (for now)
Include a picture of your favorite spot in your city.
If you had to live somewhere else where would it be? My dream is to live in NYC with a pied-a-terre in Paris.
Do you have pets? Yes, a cairn terrier named Pixie who’s definitely the boss.
Tell us one dream you have! Front row seats to a major Fashion Week show in Paris.
Add something that you find very funny! I just saw this and it made me laugh hysterically….
Okay now we know you a bit better! 😉
Why did you start blogging? I have a degree in screenwriting and I missed writing. I grew up with a strong foothold in the arts and I wanted to reconnect with my first love.
Why did you choose that topic you write about? I’ve travelled to many countries and have seen many beautiful things and I want to rediscover them as well as share them with the world.
For how long have you been blogging? Only about 5 months now.
Are you present in another form in the web (another website, youtube?) I have a twitter account (@YellowBirddream), Pinterest , Instagram (caroline1t) but I’m thinking that I might start doing video’s shortly. I find them fascinating.
What are your next projects? Those are still being formed but I’m planning a move that might involve me going to Europe for a few years.
What do you like the most about preppy and funny? It’s among the first group of blogs I started to follow and I just love your vision and sense of humour.
Tell P&F something you never said in your blog…hehe Well I wouldn’t be caught dead in it outside of my home and I may never admit it again but my favourite shoes are actually my knitted wool mukluk’s!
Include a picture here of something random but that tells a lot about you!
Once again it was a pleasure to get to know Caroline a little bit better, she is a sweetheart!
Hello everyone! It’s a pleasure for me to introduce my first blogger guest ever – Mere from http://arabellamag.wordpress.com/ ! Follow her if not already because her blog is amazing!
Without waiting any longer let’s jump into the Q&A!
Hello! My name’s Mere and I write Arabella (arabellamag.wordpress.com). I may be short, but I make up for that in my personality- read on for more!
Thank you preppyandfunny for having me on to guest post! I love your blog and I can’t wait to see what else is in store for you!
How old are you (if appropriate)? I’m 16 going on 17. (Sound of Music reference right there)
What do you do (study, work)? I go to school.
Where do you live? I live in the state of happiness. Hehehehe. But really.
If you had to live somewhere else where would it be? If I could live anywhere else, it would be New York City, and I hope to live there soon…… J
Do you have pets? Yes. My baby’s name is Charlie. (shh….he’s my boyfriend!)
Tell us one dream you have! I really want to be a fashion journalist- which is something I’m kind of doing right now! But, I would like to work for a fashion magazine.
Add something that you find very funny!
Okay now we know you a bit better! 😉
Why did you start blogging? I discovered the world of youtube beauty gurus last summer and was like wooahhh I want to do that! But, I really wasn’t into the whole camera thing, so I decided to make a blog. One of the best decisions ever.
Why did you choose that topic you write about? Originally I wanted to be a makeup blogger, but after realizing that I’m not very good at makeup, so I changed into more of a fashion blog. But, I write my blog on what pops into my head, so it’s kind of whatever I want: music, Dance Moms, lipstick, nail polish. I’m open to all ideas though!
For how long have you been blogging? In all I’ve been blogging for 3 years on and off. But on Arabella, 4 months. It’s a baby blog!
Are you present in another form in the web (another website, youtube?) Yes, I am. My pinterest- pinterest.com/theycallmemcbee, My tumblr-arabellamag.tumblr.com and I’ve got a youtube, but I don’t use it much youtube.com/arabellamag
What are your next projects? I don’t know! But I want to do a Valentine’s Day Lookbook, and a Late Winter Lookbook! Other than that, I will continue to do my weekly Live Blogging for Dance Moms.
What do you like the most about preppy and funny? The Musings. They are literally genius, and really combine all worlds of blogdom. If you haven’t seen them, then girlfriend get a move on!
Tell P&F something you never said in your blog…hehe I still haven’t told my parents about my blog. I seriously have no idea what they think I’m doing in my room on Sunday afternoons…SAT maybe? Probably.
Include a picture here of something random but that tells a lot about you! I’ve got a small obsession.
Hope you liked it! Thank you so much Mere to make her laugh and share some stuff with us. I had a great time reading this and think that you are really cool! 🙂
If you are a blogger and would like to be the next guest, leave a comment below or send me an email at email@example.com
Imagine I’m this girl (well I am a brunette but still, try to picture me). I have everything folded and packed. Just need a destination and some cash in my pockets.
I don’t know why but I want to go to England since Christmas (well, actually I know why: it’s because of all the amazing british youtubers and because I want to shop there)! Any English bloggers who want P&F in their house? hahaha
In case you are thinking about travelling these days or if you are like me (needing some fresh air), enjoy the pics below.
