Hi loves! Merry Christmas! How’s your day so far, did you receive any presents yet?

As most of you know it was my birthday yesterday! 29 years ago my mom was about to start her breakfast at first Christmas day when I decided to show up. Luckily the delivery was quick without any complications and we could leave the hospital the same day, just in time for Christmas dinner!

Since I’m not in the blogging game that long (I started in April this year) and I have new followers every week I thought it was time for a little Q&A to get to know me better. So last week I’ve asked all my followers to send me your most original question to ask me. I promised that I’d answer them in a post on my birthday so here it is! Thank you all for sending me questions, I really appreciate it and had fun reading them ☺

1. When did your bikini addiction started?
Haha good question! Well, I know I always loved going to the beach and go swimming ever since I was a little girl. But I think my addiction has really started when I was in my teens. I can remember like bringing 14 bikinis with me when we were on holiday for only 7 days and go crazy every time I saw a bikini shop. So yeah, I think around age 15.

2. What was the last time you did something for the first time?
I think this is a very original question! Never been asked this before… And I really had to think about it for a while to be honest. I think that’s a sign that I should do new things more often haha. But the last time I did something for the first time was five months ago when I was maid of honor at my sister-in-laws wedding in Amsterdam. I’ve never been maid of honor before so this was new for me. It can be hard and stressful but I really enjoyed it and I was honored that she had asked me. And now I can prepare for the next one because my best friend is getting married in July next year and she asked me too!

3. What is the most money you have ever spent on a bikini?
I hate telling people what I paid for a bikini, or any type of clothing to be honest but I will make an exeption. The most I’ve ever paid for a bikini was €240,- and it was for a colorful print Ondademar bikini from a couple of seasons ago. I know it’s a lot of money for a bikini but I wanted it so bad! It was beautiful and had a lot of detailing in it. I actually still have it and often take it with me when I go on holiday.

4. If you could choose one place in the world where you’ve never been before to do your next bikini shoot, where will it be?
That’s easy, Bali! Not only because you have beautiful beaches there and the weather is sunny and warm most of the time, but you have very nice and different locations where I could do a photoshoot. Add the delicious food, nice people and cool vibe to that and it’s a perfect next location!

5. If you weren’t a bikini blogger, what would your profession be?
Uhm, I think I would be Editor in Chief at a magazine. I just love writing and creating content, and reading is one of my hobbies too. I love to be creative and entertain people with stories.

6. Do you even eat desserts, and what is your favorite one?
Hahaha yes! I do eat desserts! That’s probably the reason why I don’t have a sixpack yet lol! But my favorite dessert is cheesecake, by far. Every time I’m in a restaurant and it’s on the menu I need to have it! There are so many variations of cheesecake that I want to try them all out when possible. I prefer the one without lemon, a creamy texture and crusty bottom. Delicious!

7. If you have to choose between sunrise or sunset, what will it be?
Ahh hard one! But if I have to choose it will be sunset. Because I’m not really a morning person so I haven’t seen that many sunrises (confession of a sleeper!). And I think sunsets are more romantic and a beautiful beginning of the night.

So, that was it! The 7 most original and interesting questions you’ve asked me. I hope you now got to know me a little better. But now I have a question for you, how did you spend your Christmas? Would love to know!

Love Gala
