Hey Elves

Yes this was my last posts thumbnail but give meh a brake, It is Christmas

Yes this was my last posts thumbnail but give meh a brake, It is Christmas

Its AGirlNamedEgypt and long time no see 😅, If you follow me on any of my social medias ( Links in the side bar ) you would know that I have been extremely busy with my own personal life and having existential crisis’s about the fate of humanity ….ya know, the usual teenage dramas 👌

But now its time to get festive!

I asked my friends over on Instagram to ask me some festive ( and a few not so festive Q’s because they just couldn’t contain the inner fandom, The struggle is real ) questions, I also added in some that I found while searching the web that I just wanted to answer 🙂

Lets get into the questions 🎄


The Black Cat, Blue Sea Award.

Hey Guys


Its AGirlNamedEgypt and today I want to give a huge thank you to Ariana “Raven Wings” for nominating me for her original award – The Black Cat, Blue Sea Award 🐱🌊.

Here are the official rules from Ariana post ( original post linked above )

Anybody nominated, can nominate seven (lucky number) other bloggers. Anybody nominated answers three questions. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions. If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.

This award is for bloggers who strives to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.

First I will answer Ariana’s questions to me 🙂

What do you hope to do to make the world a better place?

Obviously if it was as easy to make happen as it is to type than of course I would want fair rights / equality and world peace but as a more realistic role that I can play in my small part of the world I effect I would like to make people smile and laugh and feel happy, I want to be there for someone if its be a horrible day just like people have been there for me – Even if it’s just a Lenny face in one of my posts from 5 years ago that makes you laugh or successfully making something from on of my DIYs that you really wanted or just reading about how I’m basically a living fail and know that you’re probably a lot better than me ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ , I just want  to make people to be happy.

If you could choose one animal that would represent you, what animal would it be?

Probably an Owl or a Kitty, We all have quite large eyes, I like lounging about like a cat ( 😸 ), Owls are so eerie and wise looking and they are both my favourite animals.

Oh and they are both so Kawaii and I like to try to look Kawaii 😽


oooooo even better MEOWLS!!!!

Is there one song that makes you feel more confident, and strives to help you thrive, or just makes you feel good? If so, what is that song?

Currently ( As I’m always changing my mind ) Death of a Bachelor, Crazy=Genius or Don’t Threaten me with a Good Time or really anything from Panic!’s new album Death of a Bachelor as they are such dancey beats and really make me want to sing along and dance all over the place in the middle of town ( Not that I would though 😅)

You can read more about my thoughts on Panic’s album here ( Cheeky self-spon < ;))

Looking Towards 2016 and Looking Back on 2015 Q&A

Hey Guys


Its AGirlNamedEgypt and I’m very happy to say that I’m finally back from my blogging holiday and ready to jump into this new year of posts 🎉🎊💻

I’ve already had so many adventures and my holidays have been so hectic ( In a good way :)) and don’t worry I will be sharing it with you as I have a “Day in the life” styled post that I wrote up in the Holidays that I will be posting some time next month BUT for now I thought a nice Q&A post would be a great to enthuse about this year and look back on the greats of last. ( I do realise I sounded like an old english teacher just then 😶🎓 )

I asked you on my Instagram, Twitter and here for some questions and I also came across a few online, So without further ado – let’s get to the questions

Any New Years Resolutions?

Not necessarily resolutions but more of goals, My main ones are

  1. Improve on my Photography
  2. Write better and more often.
  3. Be more care-free and stop fretting over everything and just HAVE FUN with life
  4. Save up my money ( So I can buy more things that I want, Makeup, Jewellery, Blog Domain , Guitar Hero Live ect. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧  💱💲💰💵💴)
  5. Study More ( In NZ I have to start my NCEA exams next year which is kinda like GCSE’s and stuff for in other countries and it’s quite difficult ¯\(°_o)/¯ )

How did you spend New Years?

I spent New Years with my Brother , Nana & Poppa – We went to the wharf to watch the annual fireworks display and to be honest I think they were the best ones so far ( Not to top the speed way ones which were A-FRICKEN-MAZING 😀 )

What was the single best thing that happened this past year?

I think the best thing that happened last year was when I went on a weekend camp with my girl guide group, It was soo awesome and I made so many new friends ☜(⌒▽⌒)☞  ( I think < that’s probably why my friends think I’m weird when we message talk 😂 )

What was the single most challenging thing that happened?

Probably my Dads remarriage, Even though my parents have been divorced for nearly 3 years and his new wife is nice – It was still difficult for my younger brother and I, Its kinda hard to understand unless your parents are divorced what it feels like when things like that happen ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ .

What was an unexpected joy this past year?

Well another thing that started out quite difficult that I haven’t really said online is that my Dad is having another baby! 😮 

At first It was REALLY difficult for my brother and I as we have been our parents only kids for well a long time and my brother and I are quite close in age and very close to each other, I mean I’m going to be 15 years older than then the baby who I will call “N”.

It’s still challenging and it probably will be a little awkward but deep down It’s still an amazing thing, I mean it’s a new life being brought into this world and its related to me and of course I love kids ( Hence the teacher dream ), I will try to keep you guys updated on things but as it isn’t my child I wont be posting a lot about him as its kinda a personal thing ( Unless my Dad and his Wife say its ok 😉 )

Pick three words to describe this past year.

Challenging , Crazy , Life – Changing

What were the best books you read this year?

  • Girl Online by Zoe Sugg ( You can read more about my thoughts here 0
  • Hercule Poriot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie ( More views here )
  • Touch Series by Laurie Faria Stolarz ( Here )
  • I’m also re-reading Harry Potter which is always the best

What was your single biggest time waster in your life this past year?

Probably procrastinating, I did it way too much last year and It was starting to really affect a lot of things so this year I really want to stop it 😬👊.

Whats something you’re looking forward to this year ?

Even though I hate growing up ( 👶👧👩👵💀👻 ) I’m excited for my 15th birthday, I’m planning on dying my hair around that time and I’m hopefully getting Guitar Hero Live which I’m super excited for and I’m also looking forward to being more active in the blogging community, I joined The Girl Gang and I’m looking forward to taking part in Blogging Chats ( The only downside is that most of the chats are UK time and that means its like 6 am here in NZ lol 😴 )

Well that was the first of – hopefully many Q&A’s for 2016

I hope you enjoyed.
