Fairytale tag!

29 comments
Once upon a time...well actually not so long ago, a fellow blogger tagged me in this magical tag. Her blog is called Mala Trubica (it's a Croatian blog). And I was instantly happy because I am literally obsessed with fairytales, with children's stories, princesess and all things related to it. They just remind me of my childhood, of my grandmother, of that carefree time when all I could do is play and imagine my future life. They provided a sanctuary for whenever I felt angry or sad, or just wanted to escape the dull reality.

sss


Although I am 23 years old now, I still like those stories, despite all the feminist criticism and the deconstruction of the conservative ideals of beauty and morale which were cherished in stories such as the Sleeping Beauty.



I guess I have always been a bit older in my heart, not age wise, but perhaps considering the era in which I live, I never felt comfortable in the modernity (or the postmodern era in which we are now). Although I do like and use most of the high tech stuff it never brings me much joy and I think I would be happier if I lived a few centuries back when ladies were ladies and men acted like men. I am aware that most of that time is imagined completely wrong and that it was a time when a few people prospered but most were poor and the health conditions were terrible, but still, I like the idea of that time. The cohesion and small comunities, pretty gowns and manners. Although I am probably deeply fallen into romantic delusions.

I hope this long intro gave you some perspective into my relationship with magical things and the reasons why I would like this tag when most girls would probably consider it childish or stupid.

Also for those of you who don't know this - my blog is called Roseybelle because it is a combination of the two words which hold the greatest symbolism for me - Rose - name of my grandmother, my favorite flower and also the name of my favorite princess - The Sleeping beauty (or Briar Rose) and Belle - which is a word for beauty and also my second favorite princess :)

Let's get to the tag now shall we?


Snow White – Do you consider yourself beautiful?

snow-white-tileee


I guess I do, otherwise I wouldn't be posting my pictures online that often. :P

No, just kidding, beauty is something extremely personal and individual, for me it's different that it is for my friends. I don't have an objective opinion of myself and of my appearance, but I am happy with the way I am now.

Sleeping Beauty – How many hours do you sleep at night?

sleeping-beauty-2-tile


At least 7-8 hours, but that's a minimum. I like to sleep a lot and I usually sleep 9-10 hours + I take an afternoon nap every day. It's no wonder  Aurora is my favorite princess. I never studied for the whole night because losing my sleep means spending the next day with headaches and being nervous for the rest of the week. You can take everything from me but let me sleep :D


Cinderella – Do you have a curfew?


Cinderella_Photo-tile


No, I don't. But I have my own "curfew" meaning that I rarely stay up late or go clubbing or anything like that. It's just annoying to me and I like to stay at home with friends and my boyfriend, I don't drink so being late outside means helping others get on their feet and that is just exhausting and really not my idea of a fun time. So I'm usually home before midnight :)


Rapunzel – Do you love being outside?


rapunzel_by_bethanyfrye-d66upoe-tile


Yes I do! I love spending time in nature, especially near the seaside where the air is fresh and clean. I don't like big cities and my ideal life would be in a place where nature/woods surround me all the time. Although I am afraid of spiders and most bugs but I would survive one way or another.


Beauty and the Beast – What makes someone beautiful in your eyes?


beauty_and_the_beast_by_fernl-d4cwobh-tile


Their intelligence, kindness and their overall personality. But mostly intelligence - I am not a big fan of stupid or reckless people, people who act like they know everything and treat others miserably when they are indeed the ones who are dumb and ignorant towards others. I really don't have any physical features that attract me the most, it happened a lot of times that some really ugly actors were extremely handsome to me just because I liked their character on the show. And everyone would make fun of them and no one would understand what beauty could I possibly see in them. But it's true, if I like the way you talk and behave I will like you even if you're the ugliest creature that has ever walked this earth :P


The Little Mermaid – What would you sacrifice for love?


The-Little-Mermaid-Ariel-tile


I'm not sure about this one, since my idea of love is different than what this question suggests. Why would you need to sacrifice anything for love? Love is the purest emotion and if you give your love to others and they respond back it shouldn't be about sacrificing anything but instead making room for more love in your life.  I have never been in a situation where my parents would forbid me from seeing someone or that someone I love would ask me to do something I don't want. There is no love in pain, but of course, all relationships require mutual adjustments and compromises.


Puss in Boots – Do you have pets? If not, do you want them?


Pussboots-tile


Yes, I have a 14 year old dog called Furby. No one else at the moment but in the past I have had lots of different animals, an iguana, a bearded dragon, turtles, piranhas, cats, fish, birds..you name it, I had it. I would really like to have a japanese Akita dog because they are so pretty and special in character.


Pinokkio – What is your biggest wish?


14773b2971c73b-43-tile


To have happiness for me and all of my friends and  family. That includes health, love and of course a decent life. But on a small scale, my biggest wish right now is to enter doctorate studies and to get a PhD and to start working at my university.


Peter Pan – What is your mental age?


peterpan-tile


I solved a quiz the other day and it said - 38. So there you have it. I'm a middle aged woman.


The Snow Queen – Who is your best friend and what would you do for her/him?


640x758_6283_Snow_Queen_2d_illustration_andersen_snow_queen_fantasy_queen_boy_picture_image_digital_art-tile


My best friend is Ivana from Makeup and Other blog, we've known each other since we were 10 years old and that means something. I would probably do anything if she asked me, whatever is in my power to do. :)


*I made it a little bit shorter since it would take too much time to answer all the questions and I think these ones were the best anyway!


And in the end you can see my Disney princess collection that I got from Kinder egg chocolates, I'm still missing Aurora and Ariel :) ...and my tiara! We can all be princesses if we want to :)

  1. ajoj baš lijepi odgovori :)
    slažem se, i ja bih voljela da živim u nekim prošlim vremenima, gdje su neke ljudske vrijednosti više dolazile do izražaja, nego danas :/
    sviđa mi se kako si stavila Cosplay fotografije princeza i ostalih Disney likova :)
    awww hvala na odgovoru za Snow Queen :)

  3. Kako lijepo! Ovo je baš poseban tag. Ili mi se barem tako čini radi puno prekrasnih slikica. Ah, Disney, veliki sam fan njegovih likova još od djetinstva.
    Baš si zanimljiva, posebno me iznenadilo koliko si različitih životinjica imala. A sleeping beauty me malo nasmijala. Ali potpuno razumijem, ipak je beauty sleep posrijedi:)
    Hvala ti na nominaciji :)

  9. I so agree with your definition of beauty. If someone is mean-hearted or has a bad attitude, I automatically think they're unattractive. I enjoyed reading your responses :)

    I love this tag so much.
    I'm so excited to do this. I was just talking about a collab for Disney makeup earlier. Thanks again :D

    ReplyDelete
  10. Drago mi je da ti se svidio! Nema zurbe, kad ti se i ako bude dalo, obavijesti me da vidim i tvoje odgovore :)

  11. I'm glad that we share similar opinions on this subject :) and can't wait to see your Disney inspired makeup, I think you would make a beautiful Jasmine <3

    ReplyDelete
  12. I was requested to do Pocahontas haha! I'm excited too but Jasmine would also be fun to recreate!
    No problem! Take all the time you need :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. Pocahontas is even better, I haven't even thought of her! Let me know as soon as it's done, I'm thinking of making something similar myself as I really like cosplay and disney :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love Disney too. Always have and always will. I
    will be 80 years old and still enjoy it :P

    You should join our collab, of course only if you want! Its Maria and myself so far and she's doing Snow White.

    As much as I'd like to buy a costume, I will only do makeup inspired look

    ReplyDelete
