Sunshine award via The Rich Life on a Budget...

I was caught off guard reading Adrienne's blog recently and seeing at the very end that I, the Humble Hostess, was mentioned in the Sunshine Award.
Many thanks for including me.
I'll pass this on to a few other bloggers.
I hope they will be able to join in.

1) What’s your favorite scent and how long have you been wearing it? 
Oh It's Hermes...
Voyage d'Hermes 3 years and counting... a fresh new gift package purchased at Holt Renfrew on our recent weekend getaway.

2) Do you prefer city living or the country life? 
I live in a very small city, a 15 minute walk to's quiet here. I think I live in the best of both worlds!

3) Lipstick, lip gloss or chapstick? 
Revlon's new shea butter lip gloss...and Chanel's Absolute Rouge.

4) If you could have a chef, a housekeeper, a driver or a masseuse at your service 24 hours a day, which would you choose? 
Really I'd love all of them! But the masseuse would be divine.

5) Where do you do most of your shopping for clothes: online, malls, discount stores (like Ross), boutiques, thrift and consignment shops, or outlets? 
I'd say my local boutique and not far off is Land's End with thrift shops not far behind.

6) What is one food that you can’t stand the taste of? 

 7) What’s the last movie you saw in a theatre? 
Skyfall... James Bond 007... Daniel Craig!

8) Drugstore or high-end designer makeup? 

9) If you won a round-trip ticket for two to any destination in the world, where would you go and who would you take? 
Paris...with my husband!

10) Real “old fashion” books made with paper or electronic reads?

Paper books...

  1. I so enjoyed reading your comments. I do believe you live the best of both worlds. Then when you add your boat excursions....wonderful!

  2. Lovely thank you, I'll have fun with his.
    I always feel so selfish answering these yet I love reading others' answers.

  3. That was fun! Just popping in for a wee look - still in the east with tiny boys bu home next week. This post reminded me that I want to search for a new scent!

  4. Thank you for "doing", for lack of better word, you award. It's well deserved!
    I detest liver, too. I'll have to try that Revlon shea butter...saw it in the drugstore last week and didn't grab one. Will do it next time.
    Great questions you came up with! Your recipients are going to have fun.
    xo, A

  5. How lovely. Thank you for including me. This will be fun...your questions are interesting. Would it be cheating to say a small float plane with pilot for the deserted island??

  6. Thank you so much! I am delighted that you would think of me. Sounds like a fun exercise, I will answer them soon! xx Sunday
