  1. If you could channel your soul into a spirit animal, what would it be and why?

A bird. My soul has always been simpatico with these whimsical creatures.

2. Who do you secretly stalk online?

I can honestly say that I don’t follow anyone in secret. I only have interest in those that are in my life as friends.

3.What is your power outfit? The getup you wear to make yourself feel confident!

It would have to be a black or red dress, little heels and colourful jewellery. Oh, and red lipstick. It makes me feel brave!

4. If you could make one wish consequence free, what would it be and why?

To have millions of dollars. I could do so much to help the people I love!

Bewitched, I love Lucy, One Foot in the Grave, 6 Feet Under for TV, and Its a Wonderful Life, Les Mis, Wings of Desire and Far Away, So Close for movies.

7.What is your favourite food?

I love Italian and Indian food.

I loved Enid Blyton as a child, and was rather startled as an adult to uncover that she was a miserable and vicious lady! Anything by C.S Lewis, Ruth Parks, Alice Sebold, and many more!

I have done many things; worked in health food shops, been in promotion, copywriting, been a published author and speaker. I am finishing off a series of children’s books with my daughter and work for Weekend Notes and Siren Empire.

  1. Congratulations, Raphaela!!!! And as for nominating me, I am truly honored. I must tell you that my blog is an award free blog because my Life is so busy taking care of special needs cats and running a home and gardens, plus managing a huge blog, plus all my photography and all that involves (huge by itself), that I had to decide no more awards. Every time I turned around someone was giving me an award. They are just so time consuming and knock me right out of my rhythm that I have developed to balance my Life with. I will make sure the link to this post is on my Award Page so that anyone who goes there will see that you nominated me. I again really thank you from the bottom of my Heart. Love, Amy ❤

  2. Congratulations Raphaela. I enjoyed your answers. I couldn’t belive it either about Enid Blyton as I loved her books too, and she seemed like great fun! I think she was to everyone except her own kids! 🙂

    1. Bless Erika! I wrote Lived to Tell as a teenager/twenty-something. It came out two years ago. It is my story. I wanted it to be a book of hope. I used to recite my poetry in Sydney and really enjoyed it. Now, I speak about a myriad of social issues. Xx

      1. That is amazing. Your past life was the seed of living your purpose now. Isn’t that great. I experienced exactly the same. Awakening made me write a book about it and speaking, singing, and writing about it is what I am doing now. ❤
