Get to know me TAG

I received a tag from and since I haven't done a tag for quite a while, I thought it was time for one. So I present you : the Get to know me TAG
Are you named after anyone?
My full name is actually Monica Cristina although everyone knows me as Monica. Monica comes from the Greek monos which means the only one. Cristina was chosen from Christ, for me to have a saint name so my saint name day is on Christmas. 

When was last time you cried? 
I'm not really the crying type, I am pretty strong, the last time I really cried was at my grandmother's funeral last year. 

Do you have kids? 
No, but I want someday a little girl. 

If you were another person, would you would be a friend of yourself? 
Yes, I am a Cancer. I've been told I am a great friend, caring, fun and a good listener ... and also modest :) 

Do you use sarcasm a lot? 
It depends. I use it when the situation requires it. 

Will you ever bungee-jump?
I don't really think so, too much adrenaline but I am considering parachuting.

What's your favorite cereal?
I don't really have favourites, for the moment I use a German brand from Lidl with walnuts and raisins. (oh! but I do have a favourite it's also from Lidl from the American week , the cereals with maple syrup and pecan nuts, love them! On the bad side they pack quite many calories)

What's the first thing you notice about people?
Their appearance of course, being a beauty blogger I notice first the face (if it has make-up or not, or if it is well taken care of), then the clothes and then the body language/the behaviour of the person. I also notice if they smile, if they are happy or sad. 

What is your eye color?
My mother has green eyes, my father brown. I am in the middle - at night my eyes darken to brown, in the light they lighten to green.
Scary movie or happy endings?
Actually none. I don't really watch movies so much now, they bore me. They are full of cliches and I gain nothing from them, I just waste time. I sometimes watch an Oscar nominated one that I know will be interesting. I do watch many documentaries of all kinds. I especially love the How it's made series, it is very interesting to see how things come to life and I learn technical  vocabulary too. I also love to see documentaries about space, places, people, new and old cultures and civilizations, and many others .

Favorite smells?
It depends on the mood I'm in and the season. I'm not faithful to one scent, I love fresh, floral, citrusy scents in the summer and warmer, sweeter, cinnamony-vanilla scents in the colder seasons. 

Computer or television?   
Again it depends. I rely less and less on TV, I only watch it at night in bed, trying to sleep. I spend more time on the computer, reading beauty blogs or researching and writing posts for my beauty blog. I also watch my favourite Youtube bloggers or make-up artists from all over the globe, for the information and .. the English they speak.

What's the furthest you've ever been from home?
In 2004 I travelled to Portugal. This was the furthest I had gone. Travelling is one of my greatest hobbies and I just love to see new places, to meet new people and to find out information about new cultures and traditions. I loved all the places I had been to and I don't plan to stop travelling anytime soon.
Capri, Italy


Do you have special talents?
I don't sing or dance well but I think I am a good teacher - that's what my pupils tell me, I explain well and make myself understood. Actually it's harder than you think to sumarize the right amount of information for the right people. 

Where were you born?
I was born in Bucharest , Romania on the 4th of July, the USA Independence Day. 

What are your hobbies?
The most important one is travelling; I also love to research and write posts for my beauty blog, to read books, to take long walks in the park on sunny days with my best friend Simona, to play with make-up on myself or my friends, to collect coins and fridge magnets, to watch different persons speaking with different English accents on Youtube and the list goes on and on ..

Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have a very spoiled cat named Sky and two dogs Jack (German Shepherd) and Negruta (a former stray dog). I love them all dearly, they are very obedient and affectionate.


Do you have any siblings? 
No. I am an only child.
me and my parents

Are you in love?   
Not right now. I am instead in love with life, love and beautiful things. 

I loved to write this tag, it was very fun! I challenge to do this tag Ioana from, Dana from danamakeup and Iulia from makemeup28. Enjoy the tag girls and let us know you more. Until next time ,
