I am so happy to have been tagged for the first time by the lovely Chloe from Heart Shaped Morning. Thank you so much dear! I'm immensely flattered you thought of me at all. Also, this is my 50th post! Yay! I hope to continue posting more frequently in the future and maybe reach my next 50 more quickly.
answer the questions you have been tagged with, and then tag 3 people to answer 3 random questions of your own
1. What is your favorite mythological creature? Why?
Most definitely a unicorn. When I was little I was obsessed with them. My mother bought me tons of books with various styles of illustrations. This year in art history I was surprised to find out that the Unicorn is basically just a medieval phallic symbol. Isn't it interesting that only virgins can catch the long horned unicorn.
2. If you could be any character from Alice in Wonderland who would you be and why?
I would most want to be alice. She might be naive to a fault, but she's beautiful and wild and curious. Last year I became mildly obsessed with Alice in Wonderland and began watching various movie interpretations on youtube. WOW! There are some wild films out there beyond the disney classic.
3. If you could be any flying creature, how would you choose to fly? (ie.hummingbird, butterfly, cardinal, blue jay, pegasus, peter pan etc.)
I don't know if this is "flying" but I'd really like to be able to apparate like in Harry Potter. Being able to just wish yourself somewhere would be amazing! I hope to always find time to travel and I know that sort of instant gratification of apparating would really be ideal.
*if you could do something, anything in the world, what would you do?
I have so many goals for myself: Do a job I love, always incorporate fashion in my life, continue to write, publish a novel, be a mom, ect. but if I had to choose one thing that I can't forsee myself doing that I'd love to do it would be to dance. I have a friend who is an AMAZING dancer and I was so jealous when I attended her recital. Sure, I'm probably not the worse on a dance floor during a party or something but to be able to really dance - in a company or something - that would be my dream.
*if you could live on any planet-which one would you pick? why?
Oh, I suppose the Earth? I've never really thought about this. Ever. I think it would be nice to visit the moon. That lower gravity seems amazing. To live, yes, I'd have to choose earth. There's just too much here I haven't explored or experienced to want to contain myself to somewhere else!
1. What book character would you be if you could choose any book at all? Why?
My favorite book has always been Eloise by Kay Thompson. Most of my favorite book characters are tragic and isolated but Eloise is so independent, extroverted, rebellious, confident and creative. Many of my friends liken me to Eloise and I even tried to write a college essay about the effect she's had on me. Still, there are many differences between me and the privileged 6 year old who lives in the Plaza. For one, her mother knows CoCo Chanel. Mine does not.
2.What movie made you want to turn your life upside down, get involved in some adventure?
Hmm, I suppose this answer relates to my pervious answer. I think the best I can answer this question is by saying the movie I would most like to live out would be Funny Face staring Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire, and Kay Thompson (author of Eloise). Who wouldn't adore being discovered by Photographer Fred Astaire and being jetted off to Paris to be a muse for a famous fashion house while holding court with the beatnik "extestentialists"
3.What is your collection obsession (books, sugar cubes in wrappings, scarves, cinema tickets)?
Makeup. I have a bit of a problem. While I wouldn't consider my collection ridiculous I definitely have more makeup than my friends. I like to keep up with the new MAC collections and I'm always experimenting with new colors and combinations. For prom I wore my first pair of false eyelashes! I couldn't have been more thrilled. I've also been very into lipstick recently.
1. if you could have a little, secret room, all yours, what would you fill it with?
I'd love to be able to say books, but to be honest I don't read as much as I like. If I had a secret room I would want it to have a secret entrance for one. Maybe behind a bookcase. I would probably fill it with junk, honestly, and snacks. My friend's mom has one of those printers boxes. I would want my secret room to look like a giant printers box.
2. what would you do there?
I guess keep things, all my junk. Hopefully my house will be clean and more minimalist, so that room would be a place for all my secret nick-knacks. Right now I kind of have a secret room, its not a sercret, its just all mine. I was given the guest bedroom about 3 years ago when my parents realized we hadn't had a guest, ever. It's my space, where I can watch TV and nap in peace. Not that it's that hard to find peace in a house for 4+ filled with 2. In my secret room I would like to watch movies mostly, and look at things, and draw, and write.
3. who would be allowed to visit?
Probably no one, I really enjoy my alone time. I really take advantage of weekends to detox from constant social activity of the week. Sure, I hang out with friends, but I also take time to be by myself and sleep and watch tv and movies. A secret room is the ideal place for all of these things.
Now for my questions:
1) Do you believe in ghosts and if you do have you ever seen one?
2) Would you rather be a city mouse or a country mouse?
3) What reality TV show would you most like to be on?
And I would like to tag the following 3 individuals:
Hemaly from City Slick
Alice from Alice's Diary
