Dreams, Baking & Brandon Flowers...

I've been 'tagged' by the very snazzy Mo, a girl with serious killer fashion taste!
So here it goes... me revealing all about, me.

What is your current obsession?
Can I alter that to current obsession's? Illustration/fashion designing, baking (don't laugh) playing my guitar/ drums, pesto and day dreaming, a lot.

What is your weirdest obsession?
Um, probably baking! Reason being I literally woke up one day and thought 'hell I want to begin churning some cakes out' when I had absolutely no interest in baking before. So where this desire of mine to bake sprung from, I've no idea!

What are you wearing today?
...a long slouchy rainbow-esque triangle print T-shirt, with some electric blue tights and black buckle boots. Oh and I've got my usual strand of fabric tied around my head, the norm.

What's for dinner today?
I don't know, most likely a vegetarian dish of some sort: as I'm a grass eater only, or vegetarian.
My dream: Brandon, fix your own thread's.
What did you dream of last night?
Jeez I always, always have dreams...last night was a especially bonkers one I tell you. It involved Brandon Flowers from The killers ( for some unknown reason?) and just to edit and cut a long dream short: he wanted me to sew on some sequins to his ensemble which was falling apart. He had some impressive outfit on too, the dream was so realistic and random.

Why is today special?
The sunshine is out, a real novelty in England and I'm loving it!

What would you like to learn to do?
Grow wings and fly. I'm positive scientist's tucked away in some dark underground lab surrounded by lava lamps are working on it right now.

Just bought: yum milka bar.
What's the last thing you bought?
This delicious chocolate bar, my fave!

What are you listening to right now?
'Velvet' by a band called TheBigPink, stunning and fierce.

My celeb crush: This chef is on fire!
Who's your celeb crush?
Now I know perhaps I should be attracted to an actor or rock star etc, but I fancy this celeb chef Marco Pierre White ( alright so he may be just a 'ickle bit older then me).
There is just something so hot about him! My best friend informs me it's plain wrong to find Marco Pierre White attractive, I chose to ignore her.

What is your most challenging goal right now?
Like so many other 'gal's across the world breaking in to the fickle frenzied fashion/ art's industry, it's like being on a treadmill: hard work and you don't get anywhere very fucking fast (sorry my younger blog readers for the naughty words: don't repeat it).

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
...Shes a very talented and snazzy girl, 'tis fact.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Oh San Francisco, definitely. It's my dream of all dreams.

What would you like to have in your hands right now?
A one way ticket to San Francisco!

What would you like to get rid of?
This sound's so predictable and corny...but war, I'm a great believer in war is ultimately useless and there is no reason for it: as at the end of the day, no one really wins.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
The moon, I'd love to step on the moon and I've no fear of heights so...yeah damn it, I'll go to the frigging moon please.

If you could meet anyone in the whole world, who would it be and why?
Charley Boorman who gets involved with some mighty daring and exciting expeditions across the world often on a motorbike, hence why I'd like to meet him.
I'd also really be very glad to have a chat and cup of tea with fashion designers Basso & Brooke who I admire like there is no tomorrow.

What's your favorite type of music?
Well I adore many genres of music, my CD collection is a colourful one. Though I'm very in to my rock & roll, which I suppose is in my DNA ( my folks were into rock & roll, big time back in the day). Just quickly I'm a fan of Willy mason, Empire of the sun, No Doubt, Incubus (old stuff more so) BRMC, Cage the elephant, Kings of leon, M.IA, TheBigPink, Hockey, MGMT, Rolling stones, Be your own Pet and it continues...

What's the favorite piece of clothing in your closet?
I've got this long black dress with a star print all over it, which I got for my birthday (as I'm fascinated by stars) about two years ago... I don't know what label it is and I don't care either, because it's stunning and 'designer labels' are so irrelevant anyway's.

What is your dream job?
Well it has to be fashion related as I'm passionate about fashion and I've dedicated such a large chunk of my life to it (though so far to no avail, still no fashion job. *Sob*) I studied fashion at school, college and university so it would be ideal to achieve some sort of role within the fashion world. After so many years of trying (violin's please). It would be wonderful to contribute towards a fashion publication, anywhere in the world...if your a fashion editor reading this. Please do not hesitate, to drop me a email ;)

If you had a £100 now what would you spend it on?
My family, with out a doubt.

Fashion pet peeve?
The negative influence of which fashion media has on young girls and guy's, there should be a limit to air brushing images. As many magazines DO play a part in complex eating disorders, and surely it is time for them to take some responsibility. Rant over.

I like your style: Gwen
Do you admire anyones style?
Yes I do...Gwen's (when in No doubt) she has been my style inspiration way before I was even a teenager. When I played drums in band I so ripped her off, big time. Do not be fooled though, as I never did resemble her, not even one tiny bit to my dismay, ha ha! I tried.

Describe your personal style
My style anything goes...does that cover it? I find myself influenced by music. That does sound odd, but it really does depend on what exactly it is I'm listening to when getting dressed.

Your two embarrassing confession's, please!
I talk to my sewing machine and I only ever fancy cleaver men!

Describe yourself using four words...
passionate, loyal, determined, creative creature (OK that' s five word's, I'm a cheat!).

One day I'm going to invent...
Photographs you can actually step into, tripppppyyyy.
My current wardrobe wish

Your wardrobe wish right this minute is...

This urban outfitters 1940's vintage style feather, lace hairband.
