I’m a 20-year-old lover of all things creative. I’ve been blogging for just over 2 years. To get a feel of who I am here are a few of the things that I love…
I basically just love all fashion, and going through the fashion shows every season has broadened my horizons considerably. A few of my fasvourite designers would be: Alberta Ferretti, Donna Karen, Marchesa, Vivienne Westwood, Holly Fulton, Roksanda Ilincic, Erdem, Meadham Kirchhoff, Prada, Haider Ackermann, Lanvin…the list could go on, but probably my most favourite is Miu Miu!!
I looove music. All types. From Ella Fitzgerald, to Muse, to Kate Bush, to Lady Gaga, to Laura Marling, Regina Spektor, Janelle Monae, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, The Cure, The Clash, Beirut, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand – judge away, but the songs from Funny Girl and Hello Dolly are Epic! – Adele, and many, many others, but probably my main ‘musical connection’ is to Florence + the machine – I just loooooove her songs. (and her style!)
I’m not very cultured in film, but I like what I like a lot! It all started with the disney Anastasia – I admit to having a crush on the animated character of Dimitri, but I know I’m not alone in this – you know who you are!!! Then there’s also Pochahontas, Hello Dolly, Funny Girl, The Notebook, The History Boys, Pippi Longstocking (I cried when this film ended, I was about 5 though!!) Mamma Mia – can’t be helped – Stealing Beauty, My Family and Other Animals, Gideon’s Daughter, Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Father of the Bride, Arrested Development, Miranda, Operation Petticoat… and many more that I’ve forgottan at the moment.
A life without books would be absolutely boring. I’ll admit to the twilight series taking over my life, but in the years since I read them I’ve grown to love funny books more than ever. Mainly, My Family And Other Animals and the rest of the Corfu trilogy. I’t's absolutely hilarious and is the sort of book I couls read over and over again. Other books that have impacted me are: Tess of the d ‘Urbervilles, Wuthering Heights, Jamaica Inn, How I Live Now, Wreck of the Zanzibar, A Chinease Cinderalla, The Painted Garden, Ballet Shoes, The Bible, the Adrian Mole series, Pride and Prejudice, the Little Women series, the Anne of Green Gables series, the Princess Diaries – love it!! – the mediator series, the magician’s guild series… at the risk of this becoming an essay, I’ll have to stop there, but there are many more!
