Hey Everybody! I was recently tagged by the gorgeous Sophy Mynard from Crynard (click for link!) to take part in the Leibster Award. It's just basically a bunch of questions to answer and then pass on. Really useful for finding new blogs to look at! I loved the idea of answering questions and getting to know others a little better. Here's the questions Sophy asked me...
Why did you start blogging? I started blogging as it was something I'd wanted to do for a long time. I moved to a new city where I didn't really know anyone and thought I'd do something productive with my time. My job isn't very creative and it's important for me to have a creative outlet in my life!
Who are your style inspirations and why? I spend a lot of time watching films, so I'd say I find inspiration from the characters of my favourite movies. I always look to the past and for a long time I've been loving the 90s look but recently I'm looking towards 60s stars such as Jane Birkin, Edie Sedgewick and Marianne Faithful. Also who doesn't love a bit of Alexa?? shes my all time favourite inspiration!
What would be your last meal? I've got a gluten allergy so I have to deny myself all the bready foods I love. Baring that in mind, I'd go for a flour based feast! Pizza, pasta, bread, pastries and lots and lots of cakes....
What is your favourite song? This is such a difficult one as I love so many, I can't even single one out when I scroll through my iPhone... I am listening to Oasis's albumn Whats the story morning glory? while writing this- it's a classic!
What would you consider your staple piece of clothing? I would consider a good pair of trousers my staple piece of clothing, right now I'm wearing my Topshop cigarette pants to death. I wouldn't say they're my favourite piece but they do work for any occassion. Not bad for £22!
If you could be one other person for a day who would it be and why? I'd love to know what it feels like to be one of the most influential people in the fashion world. I'd step into the shoes of one of the super bloggers, major stylists or perhaps Grace Coddington- she has the best job in the world!
If you could go back in time which point would you chose and why? Woodstock 1969- actually just any point in the 1960s or 1970s. I think the world was going through such a major change back then and young people had so much hope for the future. Something we're lacking today- which is really sad!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? I hope to be in a job I am passionate about in a city I can call home. Apart from that I wouldn't ask for anything more! Oh actually I want really long hair too..
What is your pet hate? I have a lot of things that wind me up but I'd probably say I don't understand why people choose to be difficult at work. I mean we all have to spend most of our week there, why can't we just make it easy for each other?
Name 3 things that are on your bucket list and why? This is a big one that covers a lot but see the world- experience everything good and bad! Try some really unusual foods. And do something that really scares me such as jumping out of a plane.
