miss b loves...........sunshine and holidays

Thank you to American Mom in Bordeaux for nominating me for the Sunshine Award(apparently it's for 'bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere'! - just a bit of fun really) Anyway, I certainly need a little sunshine after the days of constant rain we have had here in the UK! So....I have a few questions to answer and then I need to pass on the Sunshine Award to ten worthy bloggers who will hopefully join in..

Favourite colour? This is going to sound boring but...cream and taupe although I have recently been adding colour to my wardrobe and décor! As for 'proper colours', I love sky blue (and the colour of the Mediterranean Sea...)and the palest of pink.

Favourite animal? Monkey and merecat(they fascinated me long before they became popular as a result of the car insurance advert on UK TV)

Favourite number? It's a cliché but...number  7 - my birthday too.

Favourite drink? Champagne, cappuccino and mint lemonade(with fresh mint and lemons ideally while sitting on a warm, sunny terrace...) 

Facebook or twitter? I have accounts but don't really use either!

Your passion? That's an easy one....All things French and of course travel......and shoes. 

Giving or receiving presents? I know I should say giving .....but I'm going to say both. I love choosing gifts and wrapping them (trying to be creative!) but I still get excited guessing what's in a package and ripping open the paper.   

Favourite day? Saturday - the beginning of the weekend.

Favourite flowers? Difficult to choose..roses (cream or pale pink), lavender, poppies - red ones.

and now I would like to spread a little sunshine to.........

Inga's Eye

Confetti and Glitter

Gild and Grace

Emilie's Daughter

Heart of Gold and Luxury

Pure Panache

Simply Classy Me

Classic Style

Talking about my passion.....I'm off on my travels again.........to Hong Kong. I'm looking forward to reporting back hopefully with lots of photos and I shall enjoy catching up on all my favourite blogs. Until then.............

             A bienôt! See you soon!
