10 Things you didn't know about Sophia Allison

A BIG hello to you all from a hot and humid Durban, South Africa...


To say I am thrilled to be on this awesome team is an understatement, still feels like a dream, PLEASE don't wake me up just yet...♥


#1 ~ Am totally obsessed with the colour {PINK} and all things bling, really don’t know why, must just be a normal “Girl” thing.

#2 ~ I cannot go a week without getting my Grey’s Anatomy or Private Practice fix…like an addiction of sorts, must be that Mc Dreamy or could it be Mc Steamy, who cares they are are both equally delicious…♥

#3 ~ I love anything pasta orientated, I think I should have been born Italian and not Mauritian.

#4 ~ I love to listen to music, when a song comes on that I really like, I turn it up load and sing along to it. I also love to scrap with music playing in the background, it seems to soothe me and and gets my creative juices flowing. 

#5 ~ Spa treatments are my best form of indulgence, it is my way of saying thank you to my body for all that I put it through.

#6 ~ I lost 19kgs (41.8lbs) in 2010, it was my goal I set for myself in Jan. I just had had enough of what I looked or felt like, so I promised myself to improve on it. It took me a whole 8 months, but I am maintaining very well…so BIG up to me!

#7 ~ My fav drinks varies from Iced Coffees to Strawberry Daiquiris (the ones they make with real strawberries and which give you a kick once you have had too many of them)...

#8 ~ I find myself wearing jeans, whenever I have the chance. It must be the way it makes me feel comfortable about just being myself. It has so many endless possibilities, as you can dress it up or down depending on your mood. Has a lot in common with my personality, as I am a relaxed and easy going type of person. This is one item of clothing that will never date in my wardrobe.
#9 ~ I live in a country where the BIG 5 roam around, no silly, not in my backyard or on the streets (the elephant is my fav one of all). Nelson Mandela was one of our Iconic Presidents. We also got to host the World Cup Soccer in 2010...and what an amazing event it was to see the whole world come together as one, something that will live in my heart forever.

#10 ~ I was destined to be creative from a young age. Both my parents have a creative gene of some sort in them. I was always creating scrapbooks with my diaries sticking photos and souvenirs in them. I also loved making my own cards. Go figure that Scrapbooking and I had to cross paths along the way…(I feel sorry for my poor husband's credit cards).


Thought I would share a photo of my sweet family...

I would love it if you’d stop by my blog and check out why I was selected to be part of the Design Team for Imaginisce. I’d also love it if you would follow me on my blog and come back to the Imaginisce blog often to see what we’re working on.
