Q: How did you maintance a long distance relatshionship?
A: Communication (e.g Skype, webcam, e-mail, telephone etc.), a lot of trust, staying positive and having hope. These are the important things which worked for my long distance relationship.

A: So far, I haven't had any problems with the visa even though it is a lot of paper work.

A: I haven't live here long enough to make a judgement between the two.

Q: Germany or USA, what is the difference etc.?
A: 
Germany: no shopping on sundays // costumer service can be poor// less free time activities// clean drinking water // fresh German bread // healthy food // Turkish Doener  (not seen in the US so far :( ) // if you buy something tax is already included // less traffic and more traffic signs.

USA: more free time activities to do // shopping on sundays // 24/7 shopping or eating // very friendly people // good costumer service // if you want to buy something tax will be added to your purchase //  different atmosphere // ''drinkable'' water from the faucet taste like chlorine // drinking age is 21 / / traffic is horrible in Los Angeles (some people don't know how to drive - you see car accidents everyday) // you don't see any dog poo or cigarettes on a sidewalk like in Germany which is disgusting.

Poooh...! There are so many diffrences to count for Germany and USA.

My hair is straight, but when I let my hair air dry by keeping my hair into a bun over the night it becomes wavy.

Right now I don't dye my hair. I had overly died hair and now let my natural hair color grow out.

Q: What is your skin regime?

To be honest, I think don't have a flawless skin because I have pimples, blackheads and oily skin. I know - ewwww! But yeah, I always try to take care of my face and cover it up with make-up.

In the morning: Renewing cleanser - Proactiv and Revitalizing toner - Proactiv

About fashion and other 

Q: I see that you wear a nice mixture of heels n flats... which do you prefer?
A:
It always depends on the location or occasion and how I feel, but I wear more flats than heels.

Q: Any ideas of where you go to purchase low heel (preferably under 4in) shoes, wedges, booties or flats that are still chic and stylish?
A:
There are tons of stores or online shops available. You can find some low heels, flats or boots at Payless, Urbanog.com, Forever 21, Zara, Asos, Topshop, Amiclubwear, Gojane, Burlington, Zappos, Endless, T.j.Maxx or cheap stores at malls.

Q: If you could pick one shoe to wear for the rest of your life, which one of your shoes would you pick?
A: 
I would pick some flats because they are comfortable and I think I couldn't wear heels. They would kill me if I have to wear them for the rest of my life - my poor feet :O

Q: Where do you get all your Japanese stuff from?
A:
Mostly from online shops like PinkyParadise, Ichibankao, Shoppingholics or Eyecandy Lens. Here in California they a have some stores where you can buy food, magazines and books or cosmetic from Japan.

Q: What did you want to do when you grew up as a kid?
A:
Fashion designer :)


Blogging

Q: How long have you been doing your blog and how many viewers have you had??
A: I started blogging in December 2009. I don't remember how much viewers or readers I had, but I had a few and it was growing by time and it continues to grow.

Q: What inspired you to start a blog?
A: Once I read a fashion magazine with a few fashion/lifestyle blogs listed in there, I checked them out on the internet and I was really impressed and inspired by them. Then I thought maybe some people are interested in my style and started a blog for fashion, fashion design, beauty and lifestyle.

Q: Who inspires you to blog posts?
A: Self-inspired.

Q: How did you make your blog known/famous ? Did it happen like that? What's your advice ?
A: I wouldn't say it's famous or successful. Blog the way you like and share your interests with your readers - show your personality. Leave your link on other sites and keep your blog updated. Readers will discover your blog by time and the most important thing is be friendly to your readers.

Q: How do keep your viewers interested and for them to follow??
A: I don't have a plan or strategy to keep my viewers interested. I think that's a good question for my readers.

Q: Do you check out blogs from the people that comment your blog and actually leave them a comment?
A: Yes. My readers are important to me. Everytime when someone left a nice comment I click on the link and look who actually wrote me. I only leave comments on a page when I really have something to say or when someone left a comment with a question.

Q: Do you mind to visit and follow me?
A: Of course I check out your blog after you left a comment, but I don't follow on request. I just follow blogs I really like.

Q: How did you manage to get sponsors for your blog? 
A: When you have luck, sponsors discover your blog or you can also write to sponsors and can ask for a sponsorship.

  49. I honestly love how simple all your outfits are! Unlike other blogs I follow, your makeup looks and outfits are all appropriate for school, and I own basic items just like them! And you don't seem to use crazy expensive hair products and styling tools! Conair, Vaseline lotion, Aussie products.... I LOVE YOUR BLOG.
