The lovely ladies at Thumbelina Fashionista and The Little Fashion Treasury have tagged me! I'm all too happy to oblige and pass it on.
Directions:1. Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.
2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.
What is your current obsession? Right now, I'm loving jackets with strong shoulders, like this cropped Brian Reyes gaucho jacket with ruffle cap sleeves.
Good coffee place? I never turn up my nose at Starbucks, but I love Cafe Luxxe in Santa Monica for the perfect, creamy cappuccino. Butter Tart in Glassell Park and Bad Ass Coffee in Glendale are cafes I visit for my daily coffee fix.
Do you nap a lot? Hardly ever, but I do enjoy collapsing into my bed at the end of the day.
What are your pet peeves? Rude children, L.A. traffic, unfriendly people, overly loud music in restaurants.
What was the last thing you bought? Dolce Vita heels, Bycorpus denim dress, Rojas jumper in blue.
What are you listening to right now? A few random selections from my iPod list: "Boom Boom Pow" by Black Eyed Peas, "Behind Enemy Lines" by Demi Lovato, "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga feat Colby O'Donis, and "Caves" by Jack's Mannequin.
What is your favourite weather? Blazing hot. I just love the feeling of the sun on my skin... but I don't tan much so I usually remain pale-skinned.
What’s on your bedside table? Tons of books and magazines, an alarm clock, and a cup of hot tea. Currently re-reading one of my favorites, "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Say something to the person/s who tagged you. To the lovely ladies at Thumbelina Fashionista and The Little Fashion Treasury: Thank you so much for reading my blog and tagging me. I always treasure your comments because they come from two women with impeccable taste. I look forward to reading your blogs everyday--Thumbelina for your sophisticated outfits and perspectives on fashion, and Little Fashion Treasury for your whimsical fashion sense and obvious love for beautiful clothing.
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? This is a tough one. Probably a tropical island, somewhere near the ocean.
Favorite vacation spot? ANYWHERE. I love to travel, so vacationing anywhere from Phuket to Paris is fine with me.
Name the things you can’t live without. Good books, my laptop, coffee in the morning, my closet, beauty, love, friendship, and laughter.
What would you like to have in your hands right now? A pair of insanely bright, beautiful heels, like these fuchsia pink Givenchy cutout shoes. I've been hankering after a colorful pair that will be perfect for all my springtime dresses!
What is your favourite tea flavour? The cookie or hot citrus yuzu at Yuri. And at home, I love lots of the Yogi tea flavors, like Kava Stress Relief or Tahitian Vanilla Hazelnut.
What would you like to get rid of? Nothing! I'm happy with everything I have.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Somewhere in Africa. I've always wanted to go there. And New York City to visit Topshop and go on a shopping spree!
What did you want to become as a child? A writer, and I now am!
What's your favorite brand of jeans? Lately, I've been loving Current/Elliot, Rich & Skinny, and Ksubi.
What style trend is the hardest one for you to adopt? I never wear maxi dresses. I think it's partly because I'm fond of shorter hemlines; I feel like I should wear them while I'm young and can get away with it!
Twitter or Facebook? Both for different reasons. I recently got a Twitter and find myself addicted!
What's the best present you've ever received? I have many favorites but one of my beloved presents is this pair of gold cross earrings from Kimberly Baker.
