VOGUES 73 Questions with Michelle
What’s the best thing that has happened to you this month?
The best thing to have happened to me this month is my host family stalking the crap out of me and thus, accepting a job in the Netherlands! Surprise 😉 I will be writing a blog post on this news in the near future, and if you are reading this and I haven’t told you, jammer (sorry) but I haven’t told many people yet!
What’s the best thing that has happened to you this year?
This year has been a whirlwind of ups and downs.
What’s the best thing ever?
Friends who are always there for you
Good coffee 😉
What’s your favourite season?
Autumn! Seriously, it is the best thing ever
What’s your favourite holiday?
Christmas and Hanukkah. My host family in America is Jewish and I loved Hanukkah, it is really awesome just spending time with family (which is 8 days lol)
Would you ever live in a big city?
I think my hometown, Durban is considered a ‘Big City’. I did live in New York State where I would be in NYC every weekend. Does that count?
What’s your favourite ice cream?
Magnum- Death By Chocolate
Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Nope. I also hardly wear shoes with shoelaces anyway, so meh.
What’s your favourite dessert?
MILKTART! (All the South Africans are currently saying YAAAAAASSSS)
Cake or Pie?
Cake- Only because I have to choose. I don’t really like cake and to us, a pie is a savoury dish for a main course and not a dessert.
What’s your least favourite food?
Pickled tomatoes. Yes, apparently that is a thing.
What’s your favourite condiment?
I try and not eat condiments because they are full of sugar, but I was OBSESSED with tomato sauce (ketchup) growing up.
Funny story, my dad told me a couple months ago that my mom was worried that I was eating too much of it and he told her not to worry because I would outgrow it and won’t eat it anymore which is so true. I hardly ever eat it anymore. In fact I replaced my tomato sauce 3 months AFTER it ran out. See mom, I made it 😉
It’s brunch, what do you eat?
Hmm, bacon, mushrooms, avo and some sort of toast. Maybe a salad- it’s never too early for a salad.

My favourite colour has always been blue. It is more of a turquoise now, along with purple and green.
What colour dress did you wear to your prom?
Purple – I think like 8 of my friends also wore purple lol.
Blow dry or air dry?
Air Dry. You would think that because I am a hairstylist, I would blow dry my hair. Nah bro, ain’t nobody got time for that.
Do you think you’re strong?
Who’s a person you’d love to have coffee with?
