QUESTIONS FROM JEINI
- When did you start blogging?That goes way back in 2011. We both have a big passion for books, so we founded our own book blogs and started reviewing years ago. Last month we decided to launch a lifestyle blog together, to talk about all of our passions and interests but also to expand our skills and begin our freelance careers.
- Coffee or Tea?SILVIA: Coffee
- If ever you are given a chance to travel around the world what are your Top 5 destinations?
- What makes you smile?
FRAN: She does!
SILVIA: Yeah, I do that :-P
FRAN: Hey! You really don't have anything to add, bestie?
SILVIA: What? I constantly make you smile, I always have lots of voices in my head to help me do that.
FRAN: You're not Randy Orton -_-
SILVIA: Jeez, what gave me away? It's my hair, isn't it?
FRAN: Next question!
- If ever you are given a chance to be someone who will it be?We honestly don't ever think about being someone else, we're not perfect (who is, really?) but still both happy with who we are, strengths and weaknesses included.
- Who/What inspires you to write?
We take inspiration from everything that surrounds us. Whether it's a walk in the park, or something on TV, or a story we recently read...Or even a conversation. Everything is a source of inspiration, if we really want it to be.
- Among the MARVEL heroes, who suits you the most?
FRAN: I don't think there's one that particularly suits me, but I can tell you Iron Man truly suits Silvia. The most capable person on the planet who does everything for everyone and, let's face it, Iron Man seriously cracks you up!
SILVIA: Why do I have a feeling you're praising me so much to hide the fact that your first thought was Iron Man because of Robert Downey Jr's height?
FRAN (faking shock): I was not thinking that! He is still taller than you, after all.
*Fran whistles and looks around while quietly leaving the room*
SILVIA: Worried I'm going Hulk on you now, aren't you?
- Car or House?
- Do you believe in forever?SILVIA: I personally focus on making the best of the life I know I have, but I do believe everyone hopes in forever.
FRAN: We are not immortals, but I believe in the afterlife, so I suppose I do believe in forever.
- What are you willing to trade if ever you are given a new talent?FRAN: Wow, that is a tough question! I suppose it depends on what kind of talent I would be given... I would want a fair trade, after all.SILVIA: I'm looking for a superpower, can I have teleportation? Still not sure what I would trade that for, though.
