If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed one luxury item what would it be and why?

My iPhone, well I guess you won’t consider it a luxury but more of a necessity  I can be connected still to my wonderful family and friends and will not feel alone even if I was on a desert island unless of course there is no electricity and no networks available. Yikes!!

Do you have any phobias?

I am afraid of heights.  I don’t mind riding a plane and occasionally ride roller coasters but I cannot and will not bungee jump.

Who inspires you and why?

My family inspires me. I will do anything for them. I am very lucky to be a daughter to my wonderful parents, my dad who has always encouraged us to be the best we can be, I will never forget what he taught us when he was still with us. My mom, who is the epitome of grace and patience, she is beautiful inside and out.

My wonderful sister Gerry who is my best friend, she is so smart and very sweet and brother Anton, whose creativity and outlook in life has always brought smiles and brightens my day! And Jenny, who even if not sister by blood, she has become a member of my family, we have been friends for over 10 years now.

Which animal would you most like to be and why?

A cat – for those close to me, they know I love cats, they are gentle yet strong. They are very independent and yet loyal.

What is the one thing in life that irritates you the most and why?

It takes a lot to irritate me, but one thing that really does are people who are afraid to explore and ask for help when they need it.

If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?

Hmmm, interesting, there are so many super powers that I would most definitely want to posses like the power to be invisible and flying but one thing that I would really want is the power to open hearts of people to embrace themselves as who they are, make them love themselves and empower them to reach their goals and dreams.


What do you think you will be doing in 10 years time?

To be quiet honest, I am the type of person who lives one day at a time, not that I don’t have goals or dreams, it’s just that I have never been the type who would plan 10 years ahead. But one thing is for sure, I will continue to do the things that I love. I guess, you can say that I will let my wings soar  to heights that I have not conquered yet.

What is your favourite guilty pleasure?

Having my 2 hour deep tissue massage. When we are relaxed and healthy we can achieve more.

You are holding a dinner party and you can invite 3 people (living or historical), who would you invite and why?

Diana Adams – although just recently we met and had a blast, she will always be number one on my list. Had so much fun with her, she is so smart and funny, I enjoyed the laughter and the conversations. She allows you to be who you are and she is one of the kindest and most giving people I have ever met.

Stephen King   He is my favorite writer. I would love to get the chance to talk with him and get to know the man behind my favorite stories.

Pete Cashmore – He is not only cute (blush) but he is one of the very few people that has inspired me to learn more about social media and blogging. He is very young and yet has made a name for himself.


Can you tell us one thing about yourself which would surprise people who know you?

I enjoy my alone time and I am not afraid to be adventurous. When I want to achieve something I will go to any lengths to achieve it whether it be a goal or a dream.

Many thanks to Misty for giving us a peek behind her Twitter bio.
