Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award 3: A Møøse Once Bit My Sister

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

I’m not posting a review today—basically because I’ve been swamped!—so I am answering some fun questions instead.

The lovely Nerdy Librarian Girl nominated me for another Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award, and I am so pleased to get to answer her summer-themed questions!

Nerdy Librarian Girl’s Questions

What is your favourite way to cool off in the summertime?
Shopping in an air-conditioned mall! I hate hot weather.

What’s your favourite frozen treat?
Lemon gelato.

What’s your favourite barbecued food?
Not sure I have a fave, but I always enjoy char siu, churrasco chicken, pulled pork, and satay.

Do you prefer swimming in a pool or a lake/ocean?
Pool. I’m not the strongest swimmer, so I’d rather not be in an ocean!

Bikini, one-piece or “other”?
LOL at the “Other” option! 😉 I like one-pieces, especially those with a little retro flair (not like, full body suits or anything). I suppose if I had a super-tight bod, I’d wear bikinis, but it isn’t to be! I only have one swimsuit at the moment. It’s from a vintage-inspired collection by Jantzen. It’s not this particular one, but the vibe is similar since it’s from the same collection:

What is your best summertime memory from childhood?
Family road trip across much of the western USA. Caves, canyons, cornfields, and jackalopes.

What would your dream summer vacation be?
Traveling through Italy and enjoying all of the marvelous ham pizza gelato scenery.

What is your essential, can’t-live-without-it summer beauty product?
I need sunscreen nowadays, otherwise I burn like crazy. It was never really an issue in my younger days, so I slacked a lot with sunscreen then. Strictly makeup? Then it’ll be a bright, orange-red lipstick!

What summer accessory are you loving most right now?
I love colorful accessories for summer! Here’s a favorite pair of wedges:

What are you reading this summer?
I’d like to finish up Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke (I know, I am so, so behind), especially since I am dying to see the new BBC miniseries based on the novel!

  1. You should visit Hong Kong, every mall is connected to the subway – ALL air conditioned and climate controlled. And the malls stay open until the wee hours of the night (~1am)
    Hahaha, admit it, travelling is ALL about the food.
    Um, did a moose really bite your sister?

  2. Aww. This was fun!! I agree about retro one-pieces! I recently saw Taylor Swift in a magazine wearing a cute one by Seafolly. Also agree about a wonderful trip through Italy for (the food…) the scenery 😉
    Hope your weeks going great! XO


  3. I loved your answers! Lemon gelato is so perfect, I rarely ever get it, though. </3 And I have a black swimsuit very much like this! Retro-esque swimsuits are the best. Orange red lipstick? Hm, this is getting too similar. =P I loved the questions you wrote, too, so summery!
