Sooooo Shmuberry…

Is your real  name really Fred?

Yes, actually  my full name is Marie Frédérique. In French, Frédérique is becoming a common name for both boys and girls. My mom chose this name because of a book she read: Till We Meet Again from Judith Krantz. My dad didn’t like the idea of having a daughter with a boy’s name at first so he added Marie in front.

 Where is the nickname “Shmuberry” from?

When I was a kid, I used to go to camp every summer. One summer, there was this counselor named Raspoutnikov and he would refer as anything gross and slimy as “shmu”. I thought it was a funny word. When I got back home that summer, I wanted an email address but I refused to have a typical lil_cute_girl_1943 sort of nickname so I combined the funny word “shmu” and raspberry (which is my favorite fruit btw). That’s how Shmuberry was created. I’ve been using this nickname for years now.

How old are you?

I don’t like to say my age or family name online, but I’m in my 20s and could rent cars if I could drive.

What is your blog supposed to be about?

I like to write about pretty things, makeup, cosplay, costume making… overall just things that I find interesting and I would like to share !

Where can I get updates about you?

This blog, FacebookTwitterTumblr and Instagram (@shmuberry).

Can you blog about X thing about your pink hair?

Sure, I have a few pink hair related posts (herehereherehere and here) but feel free to email me and let me know what are your hair care related questions and I’ll try to blog about it 🙂

Do you use Photoshop?

I don’t know if you mean colour correction or liquifying but the answer is: yes and yes. I mostly soften my jawline and straighten my nose. I like it and I prefer being honest about these things.

What do you do in real life?

I have an awesome job in tech support and I really love it.
