{Happy Friday} A Little bit of Me!

Good day dolls, it's finally Friday....thought the week would never end. My husband had a different day off than usual and it made the week feel messed up, I kept forgetting what day it was. But, alas it's Friday now!! The weather keeps trying to pick up here, sun has been out, but it's still bitterly cold. I know some of you have had snow - yikes, I hope it leaves you soon. I got an award and since I had nothing planned for today, I thought I would get it done :) I love doing these & it's so nice that one thought to give it to you too. You should check out Eleanor's blog, I do enjoy reading her posts, she's a darling girl! Well, lots to read here, so I'll stop & wish you a wonderful weekend!!

Loves n' Loves to you all

xoxoxoxox





So, here is how it works: 

1. When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself

2. You must answer 11 questions from the person who nominated you.
3. Pass the award onto 11 other blogs
4. Ask them 11 questions.

5. You are not allowed to nominate the blogger who nominated you!



I will nominate people later when I've chosen questions.




11 Random Things about Me

1. I was the arty goth geek in school. 2. I love buying fashion or decorating magazines & making collages out of them. 3. I want to get a tattoo sometime when I am certain to what I want to get. 4. I love being outside & getting dirty. 5. Kids at school thought I was a strange girl because I used to sit in the library and read Edgar Allen Poe when I was 7 or 8, but I loved his writings. I got picked on a lot at school. 6. Love scary movies, although I end up awake at night, too scared to go to sleep. 7. I love anything with polka dots or stripes on it, obsessed with those patterns. 8. I usually listen to rock music, love guitars, I have some friends in bands in different places in the world & used to spend a lot of my money going to gigs all the time. 9. I adore Burlesque...it's an enchanting art form. Some of the most beautiful women in the world have been burlesque dancers. 10. I don't drink, I don't smoke. I won't eat anything genetically modified or with nasty additives in it. 11. I had masses of Barbies when I was little, although I would end up cutting their hair and colouring them with markers, so they would fit in with my G.I. Joe figures and He-Man toys!! 


My 11 questions from Eleanor:

1. If you could live in any country other than the one you are in where would you live? France maybe, in Paris working at a beautiful art gallery.  Anywhere beautiful with art. Some place completely warm wouldn't go amiss to me as well :)




2. Chocolate or marshmallow? Chocolate of course :) Yeah...the picture is pretty much how I feel about chocolate...I'd swan around in it myself, ha!

3. If you could buy clothes from only one shop for the rest of your life what would it be? The Boudoir Queen of course- as most of you know, I'm besotted with their creations, the vintage mixed with a bit of rock n' roll is perfect, plus Dawn is uber talented, so she can create me pretties to last for a lifetime, just adore them so much 


4. What is the coolest place you have travelled to? No idea....I need to travel more to be honest. But, before I came to the UK from America, I would say the UK, because it's so diverse & un-like the typical stereotypes you see on American TV.  There are so many places here that are like being on other planets, the old structures and history is amazing, but to be honest the weather can suck big time, haha. Paris also makes the list, I adored seeing that the first time. So many places to go & discover yet, like Japan for example!

5. If you had a pet what animal would it be and what would you name it? I have pet geckos, 6 of them. They are all named after X-Men characters: Storm, Wolverine, Beast, Jean Grey, Rogue & Shadow Cat. I plan on getting a electric blue day gecko and a bunny! I still need to take pictures of my geckos, so here is a picture of the ones I would like to have sometime. 




Yes, so cute :)


6. Which celebrity would be your ideal lover? Hahahaha....well, being married my husband is just that. But, celebrity wise I have no idea. I don't really think of celebrities in that way...but I would have said Brandon Lee had he still been alive, he was beautiful. As you know from an old post, I was besotted with him as a teenager. Though funnily enough, I always knew my future husband's name would be Gavin & that's just what his name is!

Brandon Lee



7. If you could be a 1950s film star who would you be and why? Audrey Hepburn, because along with her gigantic amounts of talent, she had an even bigger heart & did a lot for charity and children. And she lived a life full of love and happiness. Most other actresses I could have picked had lives of mess and heart ache and died of weird circumstances. Audrey was/is special. 








8.  What is your favourite song and why? I can't really pick a favourite, I love music too much. I can connect a song to every emotion and time I've ever had, so they all mean something special & different. But one at the moment is by my friend named Jonny, under the name of Polar Moon, called 'Watch The Stars Explode'. I'll have a post on him soon, he's a beautiful soul :)


9.  What songs would make up the soundtrack to your life? Goodness, this is a bit tough, as I love so many songs and I can easily pinpoint them to different times/moments in my life. I just picked some random songs that I have liked at different periods of life, there's too many to choose from. 

Childhood: Mamas & The Papas - California Dreamin' , Kate Bush - Cloudbusting, Bowie - Dance Magic Dance, Gladys Knight & The Pips - Midnight Train to Georgia, Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, The Bangles - Walk Like an Egyptian

Teenage Years: Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit , Hole - Doll Parts, Nine Inch Nails - Head Like a HoleBjork - Army of Me, Smashing Pumpkins - Today, T-Rex - Children of The Revolution - Ok, clearly I'd be here all day with bitchin' tunes for you!! 

Adulthood: All of the above & these: Kill Hannah - Believer, Pink - Perfect Lana Del Ray - Blue Jeans



10. Can you speak a foreign language and if so which ones? Not completely...I can speak a bit of French & Spanish, but I should really get my backside in gear & learn properly. I learned naughty words in Spanish when I was little from a friend & I used to say them at home so no one would know what I was saying & I couldn't get into trouble, Ha!







11. If you could be a fruit, what would you be? A strawberry, because the best ones are sweet, but sometimes a little sour and that's me really. I'm sweet, but if someone takes the piss, I can be quite sour and stick up for myself.

Theres a Strawberry Festival in Ponchatoula next month. If I get to it, I'll snap some pics for you. Who would've thought Geckos!?! I have plenty running through my yard. HaHaHa I love burlesque costumes! They are so pretty :) Girl, you were the brownie and girl scout I envied! Look at you with all those badges. Much props! Have a great weekend girl

  19. Congratulations to another well deserved award! And as I've said before, I love getting to know blog writers through questions like these! You MUST do a post on your geckos! :D That electric blue one looks amazing! Hope you manage to get one some day! I'm also glad you liked my nude picture so much! Haha! And yes, it's completely ok to have girl-crushes :) I felt so good doing that shoot! Everyone should find a good photographer and get shot nude some time during their lifetime! If not to spread around on the net - like I will ;) - then for themselves. Very liberating and empowering! :) And now I'm gonna go fantasize about Brandon Lee covered in chocolates... ;D xoxoxoxoxo

  31. Loved reading this, I've gone into chocolate addiction overload right now, it's all I want in my final trimester!
    I was reading no. 7 and thinking of the great grand dames that Jenn (I know, right?) has written about, so Audrey is a great choice!
    I had lots of barbies, but couldn't bring myself to cut the hair to match, but I def did the felt tip pen thing! lol!
    Love all the gecko names! How very awesome Kizzy!

    I don't smoke or drink either....
    I have 2 tattoos and I love them- one is a small star on the inside of my right wrist and the 2nd is a small black gothic style cross on the inside of my left ankle. I love Nicole Ritchie's rosary tattoo but that's unique to her and I didn't want to copy it.
    Hope you're having a great weekend!!!! More snow is headed our way!!!!! Fun!!!!!
