My mind is about as disorganised as my room. I’m still trying to unpack all the stuff I brought home from uni, and I can’t really find anything. Definitely going to have a few bags for the charity shop, but there’s a lot of stuff that doesn’t even make the grade for that in the forgotten drawer under my bed. Anyways, I love a good tag, and I was asked by the lovely Libby at Fashionconfectionary to do this survey. Computer says yes.
What is your current obsession?
Blogs, blogs and more blogs! My Google Reader list is seemingly never ending. Apart from that, going out for meals, shopping and getting the maximum amount of discount on everything seems to be what people currently associate me with.
What is your horoscope & do you relate to it?
A quick Google search tells me that Leos are creative, independent, hard-working, generous yet also stubborn, conceited and bossy and prone to lazing around at times. This is all pretty much true (especially the lazing around part, and not so much the conceited part) though nothing I read in my horoscopes ever happens to me, so I don’t really follow them.
What are you wearing today? What’s the last thing you bought?
I am wearing boring clothes to slob around the house, denim shorts and a blue t-shirt, as it is boiling in London town right now. Although I’m trying to curb my spending, I did buy some bargainous leotards and leggings from eBay. I was trying to think ahead for Autumn/Winter when I chose the black velvet one, otherwise I would have ended up with even more crazy florals. I know they look a bit skimpy, but be assured, they do stretch and look great teamed with high-waistedness. I got them here. Man I love eBay.
What do you think about the person who tagged you?
She’s a great blogger, with a wonderful and varied blog, thoughtful posts and great inspiration.
That question about a fully furnished, paid-for that everyone answers with ‘Paris’ or ‘New York’.
Shall I conform? The practical side of me would say Central London, as I can easily see family and friends, yet be a stones throw away from numerous shops, clubs and restaurants. Shad Thames near the Design Museum is the perfect area (with Greenwich a close second) as I’d like to try and haggle at Borough Market for my dinner and hang out by the river in the summer. A nice penthouse apartment will do, with a rooftop garden, maybe 3 bedrooms; I’m not fussy. I’m aware this answer could change after living in New York come January.
What’s for dinner?
Chicken, potato wedges, French bread and coleslaw, plus ice-cream with chocolate syrup for desert. Yum; I’m loving home cooking at the moment, perhaps slightly too much.
What’s your favourite decade, fashion-wise?
It’s hard to say, but I love anything 1950s, and the 1980s brash and eclectic take on it.
What is your must haves for summer?
Gladiator sandals, big shades and anything floral, complete with a crazy necklace.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would it be?
To sleep? Well apart from that, it’d be nice to go to Jamaica and visit my grandparents, I haven’t seen them for ages.
What is your favourite piece of clothing from your own closet?
Very tricky to choose, but I am fond of my first eBay purchase clothing wise, my 80s style floral dress. I wore this on my 21st birthday.
What’s your favourite magazine?
Whatever I can get for 75p at the market! I’ve gone through many magazine phases throughout my life, but now I just read whatever I find interesting, so I can’t say I have a favourite. Here are some of my magazines, nice and organised for once. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to look back through some of them soon, and find some interesting editorials.
What do you consider a fashion faux-pas?
Uggs, clear bra straps and Jack Wills.
Describe your personal style.
A bit of everything, I like to wear floral dresses and cardigans but also long tops and crazy leggings. Just whatever I feel comfortable in that day. I would like to take a few more risks though; with a crazy-full wardrobe you can end up getting lazy and wearing the same thing over and over again.
What are you going to do after this?
Go to sleep! It’s late, and I’ve been watching Michael Jackson songs all day. R.I.P
Three styling tips that always work for you:
1. Never match anything! Your bag doesn’t have to ‘go’ with your shoes, your your make-up doesn’t have to match your dress, your earrings don’t even have to be the same! Mismatched is fun.
2. Legs are there to be shown off.
3. Accept what works for your shape, but be open to new creations. So if you thought that hareem pants weren’t your thing due to non-existent hips, there may be a certain cut, a certain style that may work for you. Just keep trying; you may be surprised.
Which Beatle is your favourite?
John Lennon, purely for the song Instant Karma.
What are you proud of?
Ah tricky, I’m only 21! Hopefully I’ll have lots to be proud of in the future, like sorting out my degree and passing my driving test. At the moment, I feel like I’m a work in progress.
So the rules … Respond and rework – answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, and add one more question of your own. Tag four others.
So I tag four random bloggers, though of course, everyone is welcome:
Hope you all have a nice weekend! I’m still unpacking…
