STUFF ABOUT ME THAT YOU SHOULD REALLY BE INTERESTED IN
my hair isn't quite that light in real life
So VV is at some bachelor party dinner (just a plain ol' steak dinner at Mastro's) tonight which I was obviously not invited to so I'm at the house alone right now. I was intending to do something somewhat productive like unpacking or sorting out my photos (nearly 3,000 I think but over half of them are probably duplicates) but instead am kind of contemplating consuming the bottle of wine that's in the fridge while playing the Sims until the wee hours. It's a good thing I'm a girl because I'm sure that kind of behavior in a guy would render him single for the rest of his days.
However, before I get started on that I'm going to do this survey thing I was tagged for by miss Stephanie over at That Girl is Hoisin whilst eating cottage cheese straight out of the container. I am so cool.
what is your current obsession?
Trying to figure out how I want use brown butter. Unfortunately I've made it a goal to eat especially healthy for the next few weeks so any delicious beurre noisette recipes will have to wait.
what is your weirdest obsesson?
My weirdest current obession is probably my hair dryer. It dries my hair and makes pretty waves!
Starbucks or Peet's?
I don't know if I've ever had anything from Peet's and if I have I obviously don't remember it so I'll have to say Starbucks.
what's for dinner?
So far? Sliced tomato w/ lots of pepper, a little bit of salt and a drizzle of olive oil and now cottage cheese. I'll probably end up eating a peach later tonight and possibly a good portion of the bottle of chardonnay that's hanging out in the fridge.
what would you eat for your last meal?
Um, everything? Haha.
what was the last thing you bought?
Groceries. How dull.
what are you listening to right now?
Hum of the refrigerator. Faint hum of something else I can't identify.
what is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia, the cinnamon ice cream at French 75, cookies and cream, depends on my mood.
what do you think of the person(s) who tagged you?
Gorgeous girl who always seems to have perfect eye makeup. How do you do it?!
if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Venice or Mykonos! I'm totally in love with those places now.
which language do you want to learn?
I've always wanted to learn Japanese but there are times I'm kind of glad I don't. It's satisfying to tell someone who thinks they can impress me with their Japanese that I can't speak it. I'm such a bitch :)
what's your favorite quote (for now)?
what is your favorite colour?
Possibly gray. At least that's what a sales associate at Urban Outfitters said when he was ringing up my purchase.
what is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
Little cardigans, especially this one which totally saved my ass during the first week of the cruise (FUCK YOU VERY MUCH, AMERICAN AIRLINES).
what is your dream job?
Taking pictures! I already do it obsessively, it would be nice to get paid for it.
what is your worst habit?
There are so many...! I suppose the worst would be my tendency to take things out and not put them away. I get distracted easily. Either that or my french fry habit. My thighs and lower belly (amongst other body parts) agree.
if you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?
What is that, like $150ish? If I had $150 that I had to spend on some sort of frivolous whatever right now I'd probably pick a couple things off of my wishlist @ Anthropologie. Or Asos. Or Topshop. Or Endless. I think I have issues with online shopping.
do you admire any one's style?
Any of the fashion blogs on my link list!
describe your personal style?
what are you going to do after this?
Drink myself into a coma Cut up a peach. I hope they're ripe. I have no idea how to choose fruit at the grocery store.
what are your favourite movies?
!!! Kill Bill Vol. 1, Visitor Q, He Loves Me/He Loves Me Not, Mean Girls, Y Tu Mama Tambien, SO MUCH MORE but I'm totally blanking. My head is still mush.
what is your favorite fruit?
Pineapple, sweet strawberries, avocado, icy cold ripe cantaloupe.
what inspires you?
your favorite book?
Rediscovering my love for Lois-Ann Yamanaka and Banana Yoshimoto. Where did all of my books go?
do you collect something?
I don't think I collect anything for the sake of collecting, but I sure have a hell of a lot of eyeshadow.
what is your favorite smell?
L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme which I spray on myself every time I go to Sephora. I'd totally start using it as my own signature fragrance (even though it's for men) but VV already wears it and I think that might get weird.
what are you most proud of?
Living on my own, hands down. Even though I don't really anymore.
what are 5 beauty products you couldn't live without?
I think the only things I'd actually go crazy without would be a good lip balm and a good lotion. I guess the other three things might be eyeshadow, eyeliner, and primer?
cats or dogs?
I'm allergic to cats. They make my face want to die.
And now I'm going to tag some IRL friends that need to update more often. And because I don't have 8 friends, let alone 8 friends with blogs (everyone seems to have given them up :(), I'm going to tag three. And they're all going to do it because they should feel very special.
