Is Spring here yet?

I am sure I heard on the radio that this weekend marks the beginning of spring, with that thought in mind I was imaging a beautiful weekend with plenty of sunshine and warm weather. Not quiet like that, so I'm turning to these beautiful spring coloured photos for inspiration, has spring arrived for you?

I was also tagged by the lovely n a t s u m i, who has the sweetest drawings. Some rules: step 1: Respond & rework-answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own. step 2: Tag-eight other un-tagged people. Now onto the questions:

What are you wearing now? navy jumper, black skinny jeans

How often do you blog? Everyday, spending around 2-5 hrs each day!

Who was the last person you hugged? My friend

Which item from your closet are you wearing most lately?My purple shirt/t-shirt top

What's for dinner? I just had pizza, yum!

What was the last thing you bought? well apart from food, a heart shaped red framed sunglasses

What are you listening to right now? nothing but I'm watching QI on BBC

If you could have any super power, what would it be?
To be Luphia! Luphia is actually the name of a fictional character of my favorite computer game since I was 10 (did I mention I'm a geek? :), a heroine and a goddess, more about her later...

What is your favorite weather, and why?
Early summer, when it's sunny and not so hot, around 25C.

What time do you usually get up? 8:10 am and running late most mornings for my 9am lectures

What is your most challenging goal right now? Trying to setup my little business! (nearly there...)

Say something to the person who tagged you: Her drawings are the cutest!

If you could have a house-totally paid for, fully furnished-anywhere in the world, where you want it to be?
That's a hard question! Unrealistically Paris or Venice! Realistically London or Bath.

Favorite vacation spot? Europe and China

Name the things you cannot live without:
So many! Family, friends, my laptop, internet, clothes shops!

What movies can you watch over and over?
All my fav movies are dramas hence a bit too sad to watch often but I do love Big Fish.

What is your favorite tea flavor? Earl Gray

and I am tagging: Being High Maintenance, not Bitchy ; Cafe Fashionista ; captivateme ; CHIC Sensibility ; Design Dig ; Dolce Chic ; GOSSIP STYLE VINTAGE official blog ; on dressing up ;

and the important news! The winner of the Paul & Joe makeup giveaway, drum roll please... ps: please turn your computer volumn down as somehow the background music (and seagull noises) became quite squeaky !

Congratulations Shini! I will contact you shortly for deliver address.

Don't be too disappointed, as there will be more giveaways this month, stay tuned! :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend my dearest readers, xx

beijing is quite nice. except for the days with all the pollution (almost everyday :( )

you should definitely check out the Village at Sanlitun. although mostly branded stuff but it's got a great atmosphere. and also this a market nearby called yaxiu.

We had snow last night! In Virginia! I'd turned the heat off because I thought spring was here, but had to crank it up again this morning ...

Loving the colors in the top few photos.

Think spring, think spring, think spring ...

Dionne said...

That image at the top left of the shoes is breathtaking. So lovely!

Luphia is a computer game character? I was wondering how that became the name of the blog since your name is Tina. Now I know!

xs said...

what a fun little post. i enjoyed learning more about you!

The Voguette said...

i love your spring pictures - although they only remind me of the 3 more months of winter we will be having in Michigan .... great.

I hope the weather is more conducive to spring fashion where you are!

surimay said...

aaah these photos are beautiful, especially the first.
nope. spring has not arrived for me. haha. it's the start of autumn now. oh wells, more layering fun!

Indie.Tea said...

Beautiful photographs, so spring-like. 2-5 hours of blogging a day seems like a lot to me, I think perhaps because I am a student and because I am new to the blogsphere.

ana b. said...

What beautiful, pastelly springy photos! I'm always fascinated by Queen Anne's lace. O! And thank you for the tag. I'm excited to do it!

Ms. Tee said...

What lovely spring photos. :) Thank you for your sweet comment!

{michelle} said...

So funny, I just wrote a similar post. Sans out snow-day last week (with cancelled school) spring does feel like it's in the air, and we in the US have daylight savings time to look forward to, so it will be very light very soon

Bumpkin Bears said...

I just found your blog. Love those colours. Spring has arrived over here in Belgium, my daffodils are bobbing about in the Spring breeze in my garden. I've got some photos of them on my blog if you fancy a bit of Spring :) Catherine
