Questions and Answers

I can't remember when I last did one of "these things"...it's been a few years.
Luckily I don't have any other blog posts ready (only a gazillion of half finished projects because I'm waiting for supplies to come in the mail!!!) so I'll do this instead!

I was given the Liebster award from Bolaji of the blog Velvet Row...you can check out her post for the rules because I'm much to lazy to post them...is that bad? haha...and while you're there you should also check out her DIY projects!

Part of accepting the Liebster Award required me to answer some questions that Bolaji's asked... 

1) How did you choose your blog's name?
My first name is Natasha, and my middle name is Delrae.  
The first few years my blogs name was Required2BeInspired, but I feel like I out grew the name, it sounded too arrogant in my head, like I was saying that people were required to be inspired after reading my blog.  I ended up re-naming it Tasha Delrae because I knew that no matter what I blogged about it would always be my blog.

2) What keeps you motivated to post consistently?
Ummm...I don't post consistently!! haha
But when I do...
The stars must of aligned!
I try to post at least 3 times a week, but sometimes life gets so busy.  As much as I'd love to consistently post at least one DIY post a week along with 3 or 4 outfits, I know it can't do that all the time because to me my family and my sanity is more important to me than writing a blog post.

3) Best city/country you've been to?
I'd say that Canada is the best country...right?!? haha
As for travelling my favourite city was probably Hong Kong, I'd love to go back and wander through the market places...although it's been about 15 years since I've been there, so maybe it wouldn't seem so cool anymore!

4) Gold or silver jewellery?
There was a time that I only liked white gold/silver, but lately I've been drawn more to gold and I quite like rose gold!

5) Do you play any musical instruments?
Maybe if I ever get the broken string fixed on my Violin I could still play it!

6) Favorite kinds of blogs?
I mostly read (more like look at pictures) fashion (daily outfit/streetstyle) blogs.  Lately I've added a lot of sewing and DIY blogs to the mix along with a few fitness and healthy eating blogs.

7) Favorite blog?
I'm going to break this up into categories!
Fashion: Late Afternoon for breezy summer looks and My Edit for perfectly modern vintage outfits!
Sewing: Sewaholic - She has her own pattern line!
Fitness: Pumps and Iron - You have to try her workouts!
Healthy Eating: Inspiralized - Veggie Noodles have never looked (or tasted) so good!

8) What are your 3 holy grail skincare products?
Facial Oil,  I made my own night oil with half grape seed oil, half argan oil and a few drops of lavender essential oil and Vitamin E oil.  My skin has never felt better!
Body Oil,  Right now I'm using a whipped body butter I made from coconut oil (75%) and grape seed oil (25%) with some citrus essential oils mixed in.
A good scrub,  I like to used coffee grounds either mixed with water or oil.

9) If you had to shop from one brand of beauty products for the rest of your life, which would it be?
I'd go with Stila, I love their felt tipped eyeliner.  It's perfect for a simple cat eye, and they have so many colour choices!

10) Which blogger/vlogger inspires you most?
All the ladies I mentioned in Question 7, along with countless others.

11) Skincare/beauty product recommendation?
Try making your own!  I have a few recipes for all natural makeup here, and there's lots of other ideas on pinterest!

And now...because I never follow the rules I'm only going to nominate 3 bloggers:


Here are the questions I would like them to answer:
Actually I wish everyone would answer them...questionnaires are actually a fun way to get to know a blogger!

1.  Does blogging feel more like a hobby or a chore and why?
2.  If you could represent any brand, which one would you choose and why?
3.  What's your favourite F word?
4.  If you could learn to make anything new, what would it be?
5.  Describe your favourite outfit.  (That counts as a question right?..haha)
6.  Is there any style of clothing that you would love to wear, but can't?  What and why?
7.  What do you wish you had more time for?
8.  If calories meant nothing, what would you stuff your face with?
9.  What are your favourite online shops?
10.  If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
11.  Which blogger would you want to spend a day shopping with?
